  1. When the going gets tough, what does Brooks want to do? run off back to Fulham with a payout. You couldn't make this story up. Over 30,000 football fans signed up to the wonderful concept of running a football club by the fans for the fans, to do something different. Yet the reality was the fans were always kept in the dark, no different to any other club there. He run the website like a dictator employing his anonymous cronies to dish out the bannings to any dissenters. Registered as an Idustrial & Provident Society yet run as his private plaything, a totaly shocking way to treat those that bought into his tagline. An opportunity missed to use the enormous wealth of talent present in the membership, some great idea's were floated by the members to bring in more revenue for the club, sadly most were ignored. But a them and us culture was allowed to florish on the forums which could well be a major factor in the demise of MYFC. Mr Brooks has made a good few quid out of this venture, everyone else was a giver, so why does he not do the decent thing and just hand over the running of the site to the society? Christ the club could do with that extra £15k about now! Its the only decent thing to do if he believed in his own concept. Ebbsfleet United is bigger than will Brooks or MYFC give the club a fighting chance.
  2. The moderator only has to read the posts to see insults being traded, mild though they are,its easy to see from which direction they are coming from don't you think? My opinions are my own and are not those of freemyfc, just like your opinions belong to you alone. But i just don't go in for the name calling. As for messing up this forum, i don't think so Gaz. As soon as MYFC provided you with an alternative off you went, and your only back because it went down.
  3. The quality of posting is indeed going downhill fleetzone, instead of debating different opinions we get this 0ver 42.000 membership years was purchased by MYFC members who have put over £1.5 million into the club, and i haven't counted a penny of all the schemes started on MYFC to raise money for the club, buying players, paying for overnight stays for the team and numerous other collections. I here the scheme to raise money to buy the freehold is at £270.000 already. My point is, despite MYFC members putting conciderable amounts of money into your club, you still think MYFC members be they past or present have no right to express an opinion that differs from yours. On the MYFC forum desenters were unfairly banned, and for thousands promices were never kept, is it any wonder they left in droves.
  4. This is the forum you couldn't wait to leave for the one run by the MYFC owners More forums than wins this season.
  5. What owners are you talking about? Try and let it sink in, not one MYFC member is an owner, they don't have shares do they? Well maybe those phoney ones they got to download :cheesy (2): The operator and his webteam ran MYFC not the members, or the toothless MYFC board, it was an illusion of democracy. Your local MYFC board members all pushed to put up the gate prices. major own goal. Funny fleetzone, i find it ironic a computer user like yourself calls other computer users Geeks Indeed some of you lot are extremly green, blame the owners
  6. Gaz, up to your old tricks i see, knocking anyone with a different opinion to yours. Funny that as many of us have been proved 100% correct with our views on MYFC. And we payed with our hard earned dosh to have an opinion. The knocking of MYFC members has always been an obsession with fleet fans, who incidently hold the old EUFC board in such high regard even though they brought the club to its knee's with more than £800k of debt! They got the debt paid off when MYFC came along and still hold 25% of the shares, but do you not notice in this time of crisis for the club they offer very little in terms of financial support? 25% of the shares but responcible for 0% of the running costs or current debts???? I can't think of any other club that faced with a gifthorse of such magnitude of over £1.5 million could have messed it up as badly as Ebbsfleet have. But we know the safe option for fleet fans will be to blame MYFC members for all your woes. But don't forget there are many fleet fans on the MYFC board who pushed to impose price rises on their fellow fans, an outrageous move that was highly unpopular and hardly reflects a fan owned club. In fact the move was implimented purely to FORCEfans into buying mini-season tickets. Not to worry as i will look forward to playing Ebbsfleet in the BSS next season, the club will be forced to drop prices on being relegated. But the knocking of Southill seems a pathetic to me, at least they are truely a fan owned club with total transparency who don't keep their members in the dark. Now that is something EUFC and MYFC can only dream about.
  7. A great sunny day for the trip to Hornchurch for Dartford's travelling army, despite what it says on the biased match report the Darts outnumbered the Urchins. Many of us had a pre match drink in the town center due to the appalling service we recieved last season. But on to the match, and what can i say about the pitch other than it defy's the trade description act!! Long grass out on the wings and bone dry in the middle, has it seen a sprinkler this summer? But not to worry as Hornchurch don't use the grass much as they prefered the Hoofball tactic almost for the entire match. Can someone let me know where the sniper was, as the Hornchurch players were dropping like fly's hell bent on freigning injuries. The number 9 got 10 out of 10 for artistic impression falling to the ground at every oportunity cries of "cheat" must still be ringing in his ears. 6 minutes of injury time had to be played at the end of the 1st half, mainly due to treatment to the delicate Hornchurch players. The pitch was so bad both linesmen had to recieve treatment for simply running up and down the touchline, never have i seen that before in all the years i have watched football. So to sum up, you can now get back to your 200+ average gates and enjoy the hoofball type of anti football that will win few friends, and even fewer matches.
  8. All this was on the cards long ago, funny how we warned you of how it would all end up, yet we were roundly slagged off at the time.

The same cannot be said for clubs of lesser size,even including teams in the championship,i think teams like burnley and blackburn are exceptions to the rule. Look at southend,population way over that of burnleys,you would hardly say southend united fc is the centre of the community Dartford Football Club were formed in 1888. They are indeed part of the community. The article in question has so many flaws its clearly written by a numbskull with little knowledge of football or council spending as a whole. Nearly every council in the country spends on average

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! Only midweek evening game to break 900 was AFC Hornchurch... Wrong, the Dover match was played on a tuesday night, had it been played on a saturday the attendance would have topped 2,000. But the fact remains that Dartford have had better crowds than Ebbsfleet in two out of the past three years, despite them being 3 divisions below the fleet at the time, which is remarkable. Ebbsfleet's crowds just topped Dartfords this year for a number of reasons, 30,000 odd MYFC members coming on the scene, the FA Throphy success and the 2 for 1 tickets at the beggining of the season. There's nothing to stop Ebbsfleet from promoting themselves with the local schools is there? Normal service will resume next season and i predict better crowds for Dartford, especially now Ebbsfleet have put up there prices many a floater will come watch the Darts instead.
  11. Such sad news, i only met him once and he was a lovely lad who made an impression on everyone. RIP.

  13. I joined MYFC for many reasons, but mostly to help run a football club and in some way give the fans a better deal than they got before. These price rises are an utter joke, no disrespect but the facilities at stonbridge road hardly warrent

Abuse and insults HG, you talk like you don't dish them out. I have not been abusive to you on here, in fact i thought you might make a good moderator over on the happy forum and told you so, but i was wrong. You have one persona on here and another over there. http://www.eufcforum.com/forum/topic/the-other-forum "Had to chuckle at that berk Billy Nick, still asking me questions on a site that he knows I am banned from posting on or even viewing. What is he on?" Thats just one of your posts, yet you lecture others about intelligent debate Christ i asked you a question 3 days ago and repeated it another couple of times,but you ignore it as your debate has dried up. I asked about Darter and others having their posts made invisable on the happy forum, again no answer!!!! Hardly debate hey Gaz? The trouble is with alot of you fleet fans is you have convinced yourselves we are all troublemakers, you have lots of terms to describe us, but you can't see the woods for the tree's. Nearly everything we predicted would happen on MYFC HAS HAPPENED We warned you that their would be a massive drop in membership, for our pains we were ridiculed. The operator and the useless board have been more than happy to withold information from the membership, the ruling elite didn't deem us worthy to know, but we bank rolled the whole show. Now if they are happy to withold info from the so called owners,they are happy to withold it from you!!!! For the past year we have been consistant in our stance for total transparency for the benefit of members and fans alike. But you still don't get it, never mind MYFC day's are numbered and you can look back on this time and reflect that you had this massive gift horse pouring money into your club, and you kicked it into touch!!!
  15. I wouldn't say it was much nearer the town center at all. And the proposed new site dosn't have the luxury of a station nearby. The move may suit some fans but not others, but thats the nature of the beast. A survey to find out how many fans travel to games by train might be in order. And does anyone think this move would effect the Eurostar sponsorship?
