I've been seeing more and more EFC fans on this forum who are fed up with what's going on with this once great club. It is also very clear to me that ETFC is here to stay. However, I do wonder about the long term future for both clubs. In my opinion, in the next few seasons, both clubs will be playing at a similar level. Hopefully, Lazarou will go at some point (I am sure we all would love to see that happen). Can anyone see a situation arising in the future when we merge as one club (Enfield United has a great ring to it) embrace the histories of both clubs and be owned by the people that care-the fans.

I've posted this on both club's forums so it would be good to see just EFC fans and neutrals posting here and ETFC fans and neutrals posting on the ETFC forum. This is not meant as a joke but a sensible item for discussion and I do not feel that if it did happen there would be problems between the two sets of supporters (apart from the few idiots who have instigated slanging matches recently).

LET'S DEBATE THIS PROPERLY!

To the tune of "down town"

If you're an E's fan and you're fed up with Tony
You can always watch "The Town"

If you've got troubles you can stand next to Bubbles
When you come & watch "The Town"

Listen to the dulcet tones of Fruitbat to the Lino
You would not believe the words he's spouting,
Ah but I do

How can we lose

The Scores are much brighter here
You can forget all you're troubles
Forget all you're cares

And watch "The Town"
The Team keeps winning
The Town, every things waiting for you

The Town
The Town

You will actually find that the reason no Enfield fans have responded is that there is nobody left to respond. They were all at Waltham Abbey last weekend.

It's not that there is no one left it's that the ones that are left dont bother replying becouse we have no intention of having anything to do with etfc and i am not having a go at etfc fans it's just that if we were interested we would have left when the rest of them walked out so most would still not go and watch etfc even if efc did fold witch it wont.

You know there been a few "x" or "former supporters" posts on here, I bet that they are not "x" or "former supporters" comments but those of dim wits who like to start trouble between the two set's of Enfield fan's so I say to them be brave, have BALLS stop being cowardly and post in your OWN names! For those who will comment about my username people at the club I support will know who I am! <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/argue.gif" alt="" />

It seems to me that Enfield FC has now been destroyed by two sets of twats!!! ETFC and Lazarou's clingons. Watch out for next season EFC relegated, Cheshunt? & Leyton promoted and the only team heading anywhere will be Leyton (Tom Loizou & John Sitton), perhaps the prick in Edmonton should finally F%CK OFF. The above manager and his staff at least battled to stay in the premier division. What do you reckon Delboy? <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/director.gif" alt="" /> <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/upyours.gif" alt="" />

I have to say what a pathetic bunch of responses there has been to my original post. It was intended to be taken seriously yet ETFC fans decided on a couple of wally like posts and EFC fans decided to get abusive without coming up with anything substantial. GROW UP THE LOT OF YOU.

OHH and before someone starts telling me not to post on this forum. Get stuffed, I have every right, as you do (provided you're registered) to post on any site.

I don't think there should be a merger yet as it is very likely that the two clubs will meet in the next two years in a league encounter. We would not want to stop what would be a very interesting match, would we?!

At last. A meaningful response. If (and its a big if) the two clubs were to merge in the future I don't think it will be for some time yet so a meeting between the two clubs is a likely and rather exciting prospect. I do think that the real enemy in all that has gone on (ie Lazarou) will be around for quite some time to come and no one is going to want to do business with him. It is going to take something special to shift that piece of dirt.

Personally I rather dread a meeting between the two sides. As I have a lot of friends at ETFC and would not like to be at the other end of the pitch during the game. How would we react with each other after a controversial incident? Hopefully OK.

As for the initial theme for this. I have not responded before as I wanted to see how people felt generally. I see the future unfortunately being two separate clubs. this was inevitable once ETFC had formed as people form committees enjoy the responsibilities that that brings and wouldn't wish to lose it in a merger. Enfield as a town is not big enough for two clubs so one is likely to wither. It will inevitably be the one that does not get a ground in the borough of it's own. I suspect that my club EFC will be the one to go but I will be there until it happens. Long ago i used to take the p*** out of people changing clubs when they were not successful ( the Man U boys etc.). So I can hardly do it myself now. Good luck to both clubs the future may be interesting.

What I cannot understand is why "he" is still there with no assets left to sell. It can only lose him money now so why prolong the suffering?

There will never be a merger between the two clubs.

The name Enfield Football Club will never dissapear, Die of be taken over by another club.

If Tony walked out tomorrow someone would step in and take his place, The longer the club goes on as it is the cheaper it will be to buy and run, more people will come in and want to take it over.

It's now nothing like the great club it was, but it is still a Ryman League Club and that means something, there are popole all over the place just waiting for the chance to run a Football Club at any level.

One day EFC and ETFC will meet in competition on that day I know what side I will be supporting.

The club may be cheaper to buy, in fact I cannot see that it could be sold for more than the token one pound, but it will not be cheaper to run if retaining its current standard of play - quite the reverse, I would imagine.

There is no income - no bar, very few supporters, and also therefore no income from raffles, scratch cards, tea bar, golden goal tickets and so on. There are all the expenses of wages, and of course ground hire.

Of course if a club lowers the standard at which it plays then a less expensive ground is possible, and players wages are reduced. This in turn however further reduces the already dwinding support.

I doubt if there are many people just waiting to run a club in this condition. Anyone looking for such an oppurtunity would look for a club with potential.

Surely the point of buying a football club is so that you can sell the ground and make a bit of dosh, do a few deals, get some options on houses that are built on the old ground, that sort of thing. Eh Tone? So who in their right mind would buy EFC which can only be a money pit now? I've got a pound to spend but there's no way I'd throw it down that pit.

Face it - the club is sinking like a stone. Relegation this year is inevitable and it will continue to plummet. That much is obvious to anyone who has their eyes open and can see things objectively - so why not pack up now? Just what is in it for Tony now? Any ideas?

As for a merger, no way should that happen - too many bridges have been burnt and too many compromises would be needed. ETFC will survive. EFC, sadly, will not. It's only a matter of time.
