  1. So - whats the real story with the forum and the associated story about selling the website etc....
  2. Running via Firefox, and really notice the improved page loading time... Also, pages now 'fit' better than a day ago, guess still tweaking the site?

I know for a fact that their biggest attendance for a league match this season was over 2000 (paying fans) and even had over 1900 for a mid week league match. Fact? Largest home attendance - 2013 (All paying? Not 100% sure, but Dartford are very good at promoting themselves to local schools so would assume a good few giveaways) Next largest - 1,781 for first home game of season to Dover Only midweek evening game to break 900 was AFC Hornchurch... Dartford average home attendance for 08/09 - 1,118 Ebbsfleet average home attendance 08/09 - 1,203 All FACTS taken from this site!
  4. Originally Posted By: Hempstead Gaz They were my suggestioin to the club a few years ago, and Brian Kilcullen thought it such a good idea he introduced it.

Not a view that is shared by all tho Gaz...
  5. Originally Posted By: billy nick The issue of shares is laughable, what happened to the MYFC promice of "own the club" sell shares to MYFC society members that already own a 75% stake!

There were plenty of geeks in that 25,000... Add to that the local companies, pubs, and schools who decided to support the club for the day. Unfortunately the internet crowd disappeared as fast as the "Wembley" crowd when it came to home matches against FGR etc

  8.

If GM's deny they have done so, and bog standard mod's do the same, surely this is a case for Derek Ancorah to investigate?
  9. Originally Posted By: Darter I wanted to RUN a club, not just follow one. Apologies to Darter for just higlighting this If she feels I have taken it out of context... But most of those who signed up, did want exactly that - to RUN a club. To what extent, I dont know. If it was all about picking the side, surely FM08 was the better choice. Why didn't the project work? To my mind, any single internet based project with 30k plus members will struggle - those of you who use other forums, and seen them 'hi-jacked' by 3 or 4 others will understand my comment. From zero to 30k, all trying to promote something was always going to lead to losers and winners. And not always on the right side... This will always be so with something popular. The most popular teams have many, many fan sites. Why? To allow those who want and demand a voice a chance to be heard - with 30k+ (or even 9k as it is now) why would EUFC be any different? How can 30,000 run a club without the site being over-run with constant votes on boring [****!!****] - Lucozade v Powerade for the players half time drinks for example... What colour shirt, who is going to make it? Price of admission v player budget... Aero or Cadbury hot drinks... Surely all these should have been considered BEFORE the club was decided on... I wont go into the poll that out Leeds at the top of the most wanted club list Maybe all this should have been decided on BEFORE the club was decided? Maybe? This was the first INTERNET owened club, mistakes have been learned - lets hope they can be learned from in time...
  10. Originally Posted By: Darter It is of course a huge mistake not to play to win every time when your team is losing league games, as it is psychologically very unhelpful to the players to lose yet again ..... so I am sure he will have told them to play to win. Problem is - when your league commitments mean playing every Sat, Tues, Thurs - a MINOR cup competition takes second place. And yes its is only minor - league status counts for so much more... A win would have helped without doubt, but most fans would sacrifice this competition for league survival...
  11. Originally Posted By: loosely Personally, just an opinion but Mr Daish has had some very loyal support and I wouldn't begin to question his playing management skills but, maybe it is time for a fresh approach at the Fleet. Nothing stays the same forever. Problem is - what kind of man would want to work with EUFC/MyFC just now? Finances are in a right mess, budget cuts inevitable, not even sure if its a full or part-time position. And still there is this unknown spectre of PTT...
  12. Originally Posted By: loosely Well as I said, I can't comment can I? I didn't say that I did not believe you, but that is faith not evidence and you haven't offered any. Abusive can be about context too. Don't be abusive and you can talk about what you like. Can't say the same about the "Officious" Forum though can we? Great escape clause... "So, Mr PatMan - you claim that your posts were deleted from the "revenue" thread on FF?" "Yes, your honour" "Hmm, likely story - can you prove this?" "Well, no - seeing as the threads in question are now deleted." "No evidence then?" "No" "Case dismissed"
  13. Originally Posted By: loosely Well if childish damages you then good luck in the playground Pat. Can't comment about the rest though. I must have had an Arsene Wenger moment, but then, we only have your word for that Pat. Not that I wouldn't take it, but its a bit odd Pat, I wouldn't have thought I'd offended you Pat, wouldn't like to accuse you of trolling either, but I suppose everyone has a different interpretation. I guess it all depends on context. Far from offended. The INTERNET is not the place for those who are easily offended! More upset by the fact you think its ok to say "No moderation" of posts unless abusive, then when I offer evidence of post deletion, you say its just my word. Isn't my word good enough?
  14. Originally Posted By: loosely the only time you will get moderation on here is if you are abusive towards posters. Refreshing after what this place had become. Cant agree with that - had posts deleted from this thread earlier. The level of abuse was the word troll. You got away with calling me 'childish' and accused me of spamming. A case of different rules for some?
  15. Originally Posted By: loosely I saw they locked a thread today too because they didn't like the subject matter today, not because it was abusive or anything like that. Kind of relevent really since it was discussing cutting costs so its not as if the poster was discussing something unrelated to EUFC. Just asking you what you thought really, nothing onerous. You didnt mention that till just now. Over-moderated boards are far too dull. You don't like the EUFC board cos the mods are far to zealous in deleting and locking threads. I am sure that had this board not suffered a bout of post altering/deletion/constant spamming it would have been a decent alternative. However, too many people suffered this - and thats why its just left to a few people now.
  16. Originally Posted By: loosely Blanc was a mod on here and certainly deleted and altered posts. Was, agreed. Posts here are still being deleted and altered tho Originally Posted By: loosely Blanc and Gaz are Mods on the EUFC Forum and posts have been deleted and altered on there. Facts. Not really sure what you are arguing Pat. I'm sure they aren't bothered. Anyway, why are they banning people who ask polite questions? Why are you asking me about what other mods get up to? If people are banned, I am sure the questions they have asked have been deleted, so I cannot even begin to guess why they were banned. Oh, and the reason I am arguing is that do you think because it happens on the EUFC forum makes it right that it happens here?
  17. Originally Posted By: loosely "And can I take it from your answer that it wasn't you who removed my post?" - Not a fact then, just an allegation. Yes, I alleged that it WASNT you. Was after clarification Originally Posted By: loosely My only stated fact was that your lot banned people from EUFC for asking questions. And I denied them being 'my' lot Originally Posted By: loosely You brought up Deleting Posts. Not my expert subject Pat, ask Gaz and Chris. I brought up deleting posts cos a couple of mine were. And Gaz and Chris have no moderation rights here, so why would I ask them?
  18. Originally Posted By: loosely What post? Did I discuss a post that you made? Get your facts right Pat. I keep telling you. My only stated FACT is that posts on here get removed/deleted.
  19. Now now - easy to accuse someone of abuse when there is no proof of it... And can I take it from your answer that it wasn't you who removed my post?
  20. Originally Posted By: loosely You're just spamming now Pat. Where are your facts? Here's a fact - posts on this forum get altered and deleted... Now, I now you get sensitive about this issue Loose - and I am not accusing you - it was just a FACT.
  21. Originally Posted By: loosely Either way the buck always has a habit of stopping with the Manager. Liam must be bulletproof. How many managers are tho?
  22. Originally Posted By: loosely Anyway, we're hardly talking Premiership with the Fleet are we? Blue Square Premiership? And yes - IF those players left, there would be big holes left in the side - and you wouldn't expect the clubs to do as well wothout them, without re-investing the money in new players. Something that Liam was unable to do with MacPhee/Bostwick. Even the Akinde money was soaked up elsewhere.
  23. Originally Posted By: loosely I've listed a fact. Your "bunch" have banned people for asking questions, fact. On the EUFC Forum. Perhaps you missed that. OK - lets be very clear - I know you like CLEAR. Fact - this would be a statementment of truth - agree? I argued they are NOT my lot, as they give their services to an EUFC website. I do not own EUFC therefore they cannot be 'mine'. EUFC are owned by MyFC (in a weird roundabout kinda way). You are a member of the MyFC Trust. Therefore, they are 'your' lot. And why did you bring people being banned into this - earlier you commented on threads being closed down. Stop flip-flopping from one point to another.
  24. Originally Posted By: loosely Originally Posted By: PatMan Originally Posted By: loosely Would have thought that all managers have to cope with players wanting to go to other clubs Cant see many rushing out the door at ManUre, 'Pool, Chelsea... But the lower down the league system, with a player who has ambition and talent - always going to happen. True, it happens at all Clubs incl ManU, Liverpool and Chelsea. Those managers have to get results too. If Liam had had his run of results at Chelsea he'd have been out the door and off to Italy before you can say "Special One". Should he be off? What players are rushing to leave those clubs then?
  25. Originally Posted By: loosely You are just making yourself look foolish now Pat. Prove your own points. You haven't so far. Theres only one fool Loose - and thats someone who posts accusations and cant back them up. Have asked you to list all the facts that you claim I have got wrong, and you can't.
