Well, as someone who was at the first ever meet up - Bury, whatever happened to them, my lack of involvement largely stems from getting a life.  After loosing interest in top flight football a long time back, I then lost interest in the national team and after seeing the dross served up for the last game of the season at Bury a few years back, I turned my back on the professional game completely, having been a loyal supporter since the Graham Carr days.  I limited my involvement to junior football with my own kids and helping run the club.  I did say though that if the World Cup in Russia went okay - and I didn't think it would in any aspect, I would give it another go, so off to Morecambe I went last season.  Can't say I thought it was much better, but I have then been to a couple of games and keep track of what is going on.  I must say, my mood is generally better from doing other things at weekends and not depending upon a group of overpaid sportsman to keep me happy is a good plan that I can recommend to others.

In terms of the messageboard, I have always liked our little community and enjoyed putting faces to the names.  Usually the reality is better than the online persona, for example, Marvo is a nice bloke in the flesh and even Fenners is worth a chat to.  I don't take it too seriously, but have been very aware at times that the written word can be misinterpreted plus you don't know what else might be going on in people's lives when you are thinking that you are harmlessly taking the ****.

I don't bother reading some people's comments and am able to just skim over them, so that helps to not get wound up.  Some threads I don't even start with.  I don't think I have looked at the Redevelopment thread since the number of pages went to double figures.  Most of all, I miss the banter with Baldy, the good Doctor and the rest of the afternoon matchday thread, but actually, I would rather be outside watching Boy Bingers play his matches for The Mighty Bingley Town (last season) or just doing something nice for myself.

It didn't ALL go wrong, but there are some bits that could make life on this messageboard be more bearable.  And that is not to do with computer code.

There, more than I have written for a year or two, time to find the rest of my life and enjoy it.
Bingers!!! You're the greatest!

So , according to the statistics in the Chron today , we have the second lowest pass completion rate and the 4th lowest possession rate in the division. We also have a high yellow card tally and are one of the most likely teams to score from set pieces .
No surprises there I suppose but it confirms what sort of team the manager has set us up to be. Strong arm and direct .
Fine if you like that sort of thing . Hope the academy lads are learning lots from it anyway .

Correct GPC and it will continue to be unless and until there is fundamental change at the club starting at the very top in the faraway secretive and opaque British Virgin Islands. Remember in March KT telling us in one of his contrived "interviews" with Gareth Wisher that "the club looks very healthy".  KT the Boris Johnson of football.

Gareth Wisher   Grin love it great name for him, I can never forgive him for taking pictures of the east stand with one guy in a high vis claiming work was continuing on the East in the Cardozo era.
