I wonder if there are any more Hollywood stars looking to buy a British "soccer" club.
More chance of George and Mildred running our club, Wrexham much more appealing than us sadly!
I'd snap your hand off for the first one of those being involved DP.

They will probably all appear with our shiny new stadium and our current board walking away with their money firmly back.

As somebody previously said in a post apathy will be our biggest opponent and we have that in bundles at the moment.

I have enjoyed reading these comments this afternoon. It shows that we all care deeply about the Club. Our opinions show a unity and that is great, some of the measured comments really do show that we love our club and you can't ask for more than that.
I must however take a mild issue with Alex's post. Alex, did you watch the same game as the rest of us? Did you even watch it at all?
We are trying to get across that it wasn't the result that upset us (it did) but THE WAY WE PLAYED! Can't you see it??
Your loyalty is to be praised but anyone with a basic understanding of football saw last night that we were abysmal from the word go, and this happens more and more over the seasons.
How you don't (or won't) accept that is baffling, to be frank.

I have had a fair few digs at Alex recently as I really cant associate with his thinking or his happiness level but I really have to admire his unquestioning support and positive outlook. Its impressive and being that happy about what is happening / often served, is a credit to him if a tad mystifying.

You arent on your own jimbo. I have done most of that too apart from a passing interest in Utd that is also waning with the way they play and I cant quite bring myself to giving up on the Shots. The days of paying money to watch them play like last night are very very numbered.
I wont be streaming Saturday in the vague hope we will become world class again and will of missed it but it happened. Breath not being held.

Alex and our younger fans are the next life and soul of our club, it’ll be their opinions that matter more and more over the next few years. I’ll not have a go at the fella these days, he is entitled to his view.

Only thing I’d ask is that they at least understand how others feel.

I’m missing the day out, walking to the station and a few beers after the game probably a bit more than the game these days, away games I’m seriously missing specially the northern beast hunting weekends, not watching us lose to crap fanless clubs like wood and Eastleigh is a blessing in disguise

Everyone is always and should always be entitled to their view. As said, however mystifying.
They are probably happier individuals but with much much lower expectations.

I am a very nice and polite person. That's why I get so deeply upset when people call me a **** :lol:

I hope that Alex doesn’t mind me say this but, I’m of the opinion that it’s not necessarily happiness as such but more a case of a reluctant acceptance of where the club is both on and off the pitch during this pandemic. The club has no money as such, there’s very little money (if any) coming in and none of us genuinely know what the future holds. Trying to be positive can be a great help, as difficult as it may be at times.

I fully accept that the last two and a half seasons haven’t been good for us supporters what with finishing in a relegation place, a curtailed season where I’m of the opinion that we would have been fortunate to have avoided another relegation place and a current season that is just ‘unreal’ what with covid postponements, no crowds and where our football has been so-so at best.

I know where the club is, in the past we played and beat clubs like Bournemouth Brentford Exeter Bradford and Swindon all in the last 10/12 years, go back further and we played and beat Portsmouth Watford Sheffield United Swansea palace and Reading, now we’re losing to the footballing giants boreham wood Bromley Solihull Eastleigh which is disastrous
