    UU: There's already a tension within the club between those who want to rise through the divisions to as high as possible and those who'd be happy to go as high as we go.


    Trevor (assuming you are an AFC Wimbledon fan), I wish to extend a belated condolences to having the Dons up and taken away to MK. It is unfortunate that the worst aspect of U.S. sports (outside owner relocation) came and took away a historic club like that from you and the fans there.

    Back on topic: I understand where you are coming from, but EUFC can't survive without the local community and I see (from where I sit) MyFC as a brace to keep the club going and prospering while the community catches up with it.

    The fans here on this board are passionate, but they've even said that more of the community needs to get involved. I believe the club and MyFC can find ways to do that, in and out of Stonebridge Road.

    I wrote in to them to tell them that they were doing a good job on commentating the match.

    Didn't expect to be mentioned on the air, but hey, that was cool.

    And for the record, I've e-mailed Chaz as well in the past. This wasn't a one-off...

    I liked the dark blue Gravesend Reporter shirt myself !

    But, not being a member of the "club" my view doesn't count !! I have got used to that over the past few weeks......

    Cheers....


    Do you have a pic that you can put up here of the Gravesend Reporter shirt?

    And you still have a voice, Hirsty... Keep posting here and, at least I will, take it into consideration.

    having re-read my post made last night rvr and given your comments some thought I think that perhaps it was a little inconsiderate of me so I apologise and I shall in future prefix any copied fotos as you suggest...

    tis the season of peace and goodwill to all... laughsnowman


    Thanks, UU. I appreciate that.

    I do enjoy the pictures of the ladies, but at home. That one was a surprise, especially in the way you set it up... I wasn't expecting that.

    Again, thanks. Tis the season to be jolly... coolsnowman

    Bill, I hold my hands up. I had a bad day yesterday. Rather than beating the wife and kids when I got home I thought I would vent my frustration out on here. argue You know the old saying take it on those you love the most cuddle . When I awoke this morning I realised I had ridiculed someone who had decided to invest in the club. frown It was wrong of me. rsheard, yorkfox, rvr and little friejose please accept my apologies. giveup


    DA11, you've been fair and just on the MyFC forum and on here since I started here. I took no offense, just wanted to clarify my side of it here from the States.

    No problems...

    rvr cool
  7. To add to this, I don't have a true club to follow, just some of the bigger ones that are on television more here in the States and that's not even close to the real thing.

     

    I signed up for MyFC to learn more about the English football game, to get a better understanding of what makes it tick at a level lower than the EPL and, in time, develop a connection with the club.

     

    Since everything has started, I've received a crash lesson in the passion and commitment of English football fans and their clubs. I respect that a lot... It is something you don't see much of in the States...

     

    And I've only signed up for one year, but will add another year after New Year's...

     

    rvr cool

    The manager/coach works with these players day in day out, and should know what he is talking about, when it comes to these matters.


    And he'll tell us what he thinks of everyone and everything in his reports. No one is saying that we're not going to listen to him.

    There will be a system in place where we'll see taped sessions of the practices and of the matches. Live, probably not since that may cost an arm and a leg to do that. But the tools will be there to make the picks - if you choose to use them and if you choose to pick the team/tactics.

    Nice straw man argument there. No one criticized Liam's tactics or his players until you just mentioned it.

    Many of us tried several times to hook up onto your feed and got nothing but silence.

    For what it is worth, we knew you were there doing the match - because we heard you in the background of the BBC Southern Counties feed. (Yeah, small consolation, but that's all I have now...)

  10. For Thursday's match vs. Woking, will it be on BBC Kent or will it be on another BBC channel that can be accessed on the Internet?

     

    I have the link for BBC Kent, but if it isn't there, any help would be appreciated.

    EDIT: To return to the topif of Radiohead, I've never been a big fan, but I've really enjoyed In Rainbows. Since some of you guys rate it pretty highly, which other Radiohead discs should I pick up?

By doing so it would appear they have thrown their hand in unresevedly with MyFC when they had an opportunity to remain independant and a potential rallying point for the sceptical fan.

    Surely a statement would have sufficed.


    And have that statement misrepesented in the press?

    The Fleet Trust spokesperson (Jessica) even said in a statement that she wasn't going to talk to the press or release anymore statements, except for the outcome of the meeting.

    It is possible to go along with MyFC and be skeptical...

    If we do vote on that, trust me that the Strongbow may actually have a bigger place at the bar.

    And AFF, Bud and Fosters? Really... you're in the states, you could have picked worst ones to stick at the bar.

    As the saying goes (at least here): Local bar, Local fare, Local drink.
