  • @eric_plant said: Or we could stop analysing the minutiae of one moment in one game and take a view on players over a much longer body of work. I think if you do that with Allsopp you conclude that we could do better. I'm certainly not say…
  • @Wendoverman @OxfordBlue ...I might be able to help here! @eric_plant ...I'm not sure I'm comfortable agreeing with you so often! @bluntphil ...cheers Phil. I think my curiosity is more on an individual, human basis. I am sure they displayed a…
  • Ryan Allsop, making his 187th professional appearance, is not to blame but Giles Phillips, making only his 2nd ever league start, and Darius Charles, making his first start in 9 months after recovering from a career-ending injury, are the real culpr…
  • @micra said: Am I right in thinking @glasshalfempty loves a bit of schadenfreude? You think my contributions here are exuding pleasure?
  • I realise this place has long since been preserved only for the disciples and true believers but those attempting to try and ignore the one rather big negative from last night are laughable. It's like sticking your fingers in your ears and going la-…
  • Ha! Look at people almost falling over themselves to make feeble excuses for throwing away two points. It is a dreadful mistake from Allsop. It is a weak header directed straight at him. He will cost us again this season. Everyone knows there will b…
  • @bluntphil Nice one Philip!
  • @LX1 Brockbank appears to be ahead of Boon in his development but his involvement depends on his contract situation.
  • Latest news is striker Connor Hall hasn't travelled due to injury. Josh Magennis refused to travel having serving notice of resignation on his contract. James Weir is a free agent after leaving Hull City and the left midfielder might be involved.…
  • @floyd Haha! It crossed my mind too. However it would be tricky to mix them up... (Manchester City shirt)
  • Maybe I should have posted the following in this thread... Having been suffering with a growing curiosity about what Bolton Wanderers line-up might look like tomorrow, I have done some research (yes I am this sad) and am stupid enough to predict …

  • @EwanHoosaami https://www.buryfc.co.uk/news/2019/july/statement-from-the-chairman/ - suggests Bury's immediate future is safe if not healthy

  • @Tom said: If the vote of Legacy Members doesn't go your way, are you prepared to let Wycombe Wanderers fold in order to get your money back? Just ask this question, again and again and again. I wonder what 15% interest on the purchase…
  • @th100 said: It seems like the end could be near. Their fans seem to have lost any last shred of hope. What an utterly sad state of affairs. https://twitter.com/burymeinexile/status/1146754598012633089 Perhaps some chinless wonder (a mu…

  • Those loons aren’t just on here either! @peterparrotface said: To be fair the club knows we've got loons on here who absolutely lose it over the phrase away kit and changing kits when there's no clash. One of our proudest traditions
  • It always comes back to Beeks in the end. It’s been that way since the Battle of Las Navas de Tolosa.
  • I am thoroughly enjoying this thread.
  • @th100 said: If, worst case scenario, none of Bayo, Gape and Kashket sign new deals, we're left with 12 players - and that's assuming no one else gets lured away. We could end up having to bring in six just to be able to name a full matchday squa…
  • @floyd Oh son, I thought we’d taught you well!
  • These are the best crisps you can find! *licks lips

  • @Wendoverman Hats off for the title of this thread! I wouldn't be surprised if Fred does return to AP for a third spell.
  • There's lots to be positive about; best league finish in 17 years (since 2002). Consolidated as a League 1 club which is where we need to be to grow. Best average attendance for 9 years (since 2010). We have continuity with a manager who gets the be…
  • @bookertease I'm very rarely referred to as optimistic!
  • @micra Haha, my iPhone thinks it knows better than me too. Sadly most of time it does.
  • @micra I’m trying to widen my vocabulary
  • @micra substitute shut for such. Autocorrect can be such a nuisance. Sadly you are doing likewise by characterising some posters as joyless and relentlessly negative. Are only certain opinions / dispositions accepted here?
  • @OxfordBlue said: @glasshalfempty said: @OxfordBlue You appear to be confusing criticism with abuse. That Supporters Direct were needed to advise against playing a pre-season friendly against the franchise speaks volumes. The desper…
