    It is something I've been aware of on the hill and I will be addressing it don't know about the East Side character, we have so many positives on and off the field which I promise won't be spoilt by a few

    PONY TAILED URCHIN reacted to Jago in Hx 2 Horsham 1   
    Guys and gals - the tweets are the views of one or two individuals.  Social media is not fact - and rarely does it reflect the opinions of the majority (just check any political nonsense on twitter for example). But it is a good place for people who struggle with normal face-to-face communication to voice their views or prejudices in a safe environment, especially after the event.  So - I'd ignore and move on.   Responding just legitimises the debate with people who have a lot of time on their hands to get in the last word - so probably will (generally 20-something media graduates and the like!).  I suspect the majority of Horsham fans (and players) simply felt they'd had a hard day at the office but felt nothing threatening - certainly there were plenty in the bar chatting with the Urchin faithful after the game.
    BUT - and I have been meaning to post this for a while - I do think there are one or two individuals at The Bridge whose language and attitude is simply not acceptable. 
    There is one bloke on the Eastside (been coming for a year or so I think), and another on The Hill who I witnessed for the first time yesterday whose constant (and vile) abuse of the officials and opposition players is simply unfunny and must put many people off.  Both are in the 50+ age group. I actually left the Hill at half time because of the latter bloke.   Note that none of this was specifically directed at Horsham fans (nor the lady physio for that matter) - but it's not a good advert for the club or for new visitors.
    I'm no snowflake.  Passion is important and well placed insults and swearing are all part of the game, especially if done humorously. In fact a new fan mentioned to me that he'd heard banter on the Eastside that he'd not heard in years at West Ham and will be coming back for sure.  But I do think we fans (especially the readership of the forum who tend to be relatively balanced) need to self-regulate some of these newcomers.   This, I think, is much more worthy of debate than some random/lone Horsham fan's comments on twitter.

    Myself and Ann have also seen comments on twitter and i was standing in the area myself for some of the second half.  
    The Horsham fans were asked not to cover advertising with their flag but were not asked to move anywhere else as has been hill is not exclusively dedicated to home fans. 
    No foul or abusive language towards either set of fans in that section was seen or heard and banter seemed friendly rather than threatening, unless your offended by the Beatles yellow submarine song.
    It all reads on twitter as sour grapes from a team and fans who believed they were going to win.

    Was a great night. Well done all. I'm sure there was some cheating going on...the winners only dropped about 4 points from the whole quiz! Was like competing against the egg heads.

    Abi Byrne, today's FIFA qualified ref, was in charge of the women's FA cup final in front of 43,000 so today must have been a walk in the park. 
    Pete/Ann. Was my pleasure, I'll make it a regular thing, you deserve it.
    So many chances, doubt we'll miss that many again all season.

    the spirit of this team has been fantastic over the last 2 games and several players who have not been regular starters rose to the challenge on Tuesday night to make it a memorable night for all of the supportors.  Jordan Clarke put in a fantastic MOM performance and George Winn coming on for injured Joe christou did very well.
     
    I'm pleased that the team got over the line in the end as it would have been an fair tie to lose, role on the next round

    Oxford City 1-1 Hornchurch 
    What a fantastic result away to Oxford City in the FA Trophy in s game that in large parts was dominated by the Urchins who kept their discipline and worked hard as a team.
    Unlucky not to get the win either blatant penalty from keeper pulling ronnie winn down, and offside given against Chris dickson (wrongly) after lewis spence shot hit the bar.
    Oxford lost their discipline with silly fowls and a few elbows deliberately targeting our players.
    All the lads deserve credit for a discaplined committed performance and can take confidence into the replay on Tuesday Night.
    Come in you Urchins you did thd fans proud.

    Sad to say the first thing they have done is remove Paul Martin and his whole backroom team to be replaced by a so called more experianced and better able to reach up to league 2 management team of 4 people.
    it's a disgrace and a shame that he's the victim after all his hard work with that team
    It seems that tamplins money will be used to build a new ground and pay the teams wages just for the hand full of fans they currently get and i'm sure they won't be so pleased.

    For the record there were no complaints from the officials or players or any coaching staff about the ball boys and they are being watched during matches.  They even go a load of high fives and thank yous after the game from both sides and the ref.  We are only a quarter of the way into the season and clearly teams do not like losing to us but have no excuses which shows how well the urchins have been playing.

    We were up against a good passing team. We were far more clinical in front of goal and limited their chances although they did have a very clear chance early on.
    Can't really argue with 4-0. Good support too. Great individual goal by Chris Dickson and a great cross in from Lewwis Spence for the first goal.
    Tuesday's a big game now, COYU

    Glen Tamplin has announced he is standing down as owner and director of Billericay as of today. But remember tomorrow is another day and he could come back again or the club is looking for finance to pay the club's running. 
    Interesting times ahead for the club.

    Good performance - the front two are working well and there were good performances around the pitch. Their no 9 might have taken one or two fouls but boy, was he dishing it out - I’m guessing that the Wingate bench must have missed those incidents! Correct result and the better team won. These are the sort of games we need to win if we’re going to be in the mix. Well done Hornchurch

    Well for me that was a hard earned win with a tough first half with wingate playing long ball and persistent fouls so that it didnt quite flow until the last five minutes with a well worked goal.
    An entertaining WINGE ensued at half time from the Wingate board and fans at it being a dodgy ref and one sided against them!
    Second half the Urchins took hold of the game with a few subtle tactical changes that opened up wingate defence several times and resulted in a deserved second goal.
    Good to be back to winning ways and looking forward to FA Cup Saturday.

    might be worth seeing if we can get adverts in local newspapers to push the day to readers, and include additional fixtures and website on it to try and bring it into peoples minds.  It might also be a good idea to see if we can get a few local business to perhaps donate items for a raffle so everyone that comes into the game gets a free entry or something.
