Re: Non-League football

lowestoft are going to pip sutton. i hope.

can't believe gary bull is still playing for boston town at the ripe old age of 46.

i hate crawley more than the fake man u now.

Re: Non-League football

how on earth did Lowestoft manage to get so many games behind? their legs are all going to fall off from trying to catch up. no chance of pipping whatsoever.

why the hate for crawley? them beating man utd would be great.

Re: Non-League football

kept getting postponed.

lowy have got a really good squad, are very well managed and picked up several really decent players for the level the past couple of weeks. so don't write them off. they're a quality side and have barely conceded a goal all season. do not be remotely surprised when they win the league.

crawley paid £200k for a player, and they are in the conference - they are spending at the level of a 1st division side. their manager is a tax evading fuck. horrible side. can't wait for man utd to tonk them.

Re: Non-League football

Yes you are quite right Mez, after Farsley Celtic went under, I opted to uproot and move over to support Guiseley, but as you know I've been enjoying FC Utd more recently.

FCUM fans are basically many of the solid, decent, proper folk (or banned) who were fans of MUFC. The atmosphere has been great at all the games I've been to, and the club is actively moving away from the traditional fan rivalries, towards a solidarity and friendship ties - although this wont realistically take place with right-wing fan clubs of other teams.

I went to the Rochdale game, as you can imagine the emotions were high after the victory, que pitch invasion. The club then realised that this could get them in a lot of trouble so they actively encouraged fans not to do it in future 'high-profile' games. The announcers kept calling for it at the Brighton second leg game. Inevitably it happened, but only from thrill seeking teenagers, cue boos from the FCUM fans. As they approached the ESPN box a sole copper stepped on to the pitch, and immediately the kids turned round and legged it back to the stands to a hail of boos. That shit was hilarious.

Not a fan of Crawley, saw them dick Guiseley 5-0 at Nethermoor in the FA Cup. Guiseley doing fantastic this season, who knows? might get into the conference next season.

Haven't been to a game for ages, need to get back into it after reading this.

What?

Doesn't this happen with other non league clubs then?

The idea of non league clubs having enough supporters to have considered a left or right wing fan clubs is hilarious.

*facepalm*

Re: Non-League football

you'd be surprised. sometimes the crowd is large enough for there to be more than one person stood at either side of the pitch.

Re: Non-League football

As a Grimsby Town supporter, I never thought i'd see the day when i'd be involved in a thread like this, but ten years of decline and rot means we deserve to be where we are.

I've kind of enjoyed this season so far though....very weird going to away games and outnumbering the home support, and i've visited towns that I didn't even know existed. It's nice to go to an away match and be fully welcomed by the home club ...apart from the 'bigger' clubs, you can normally go and have a pint in the supporters club and mingle with home fans etc before the match, rather than trying to find an away fan friendly pub.

Agreed on the Crawley hatred. They are spending a ridiculous amount of money and it's inevitably going to come back and bite them on the arse. They've simply not got the fan base to support what they're trying to do.

And Steve Evans is a fat, horrible, crooked bastard.

I'm not saying that this move to solidarity and friendship ties is anything new or unique to FCUM, just that it is happening.

Re: Non-League football

Thankfully Blyth beat them in the replay and now face Gateshead in the next round.

Got a lot of time for Blyth, most of their fans are sound. A really welcoming place to go too as well.

Re: Non-League football

Blyth v Gateshead, 26th February. Pretty nervous already. I will be taking a big hipflask of something strong.

Haven't been to Blyth for 7-8 years, maybe longer. THE REAL North-East derby, resurrected.

How has the "new" club been going? Also, when the club was in its final death throes last season was there any truth in that odd (probably non-) story about Chester applying to play in the Welsh system? Assume it was nonsense?

In the non-leagues I follow Merthyr Town FC. The former club (Tydfil) was liquidated at the end of last season, despite beating relegation with a -10pts disadvantage. The Martyrs have now been demoted 3 divisions and kicked out of Penydarren Park to Taffs Well (some 20miles away) for this season. Lost 2-4 on the weekend but still top of the division and it'll hopefully stay that way till the end of the season. Sadly, it'll be a long time before the club'll reach the giddy heights of the Conference again, if ever, and the days of facing Atalanta are passed. Though I guess there's something charming about playing Portishead FC.

In the Welsh system I've recently taken an interest in RTB Ebbw Vale FC as they've moved into the ground, Eugene Cross Park, of my erstwhile home town club Ebbw Vale FC (RIP). They play at a pretty lowly level, however, the 5th tier of the Welsh system. I think the club has (relative) ambition though, as EXP is a proper ground (better than many in the Welsh league), and they've erected a big notice board outside the ground as big as the rugby's (whose team is, or was rather, the town's principal sports club). But they've barely played in the past two months due to the weather.

That's enough typing to the void, haha.

i've been to 5 games at lowestoft. red card in every one of them, and a rumble in most. football, the way it ought to be.

went to lynn vs st neots in the 5th round of the vase on saturday and after a disappointing first half, the game really caught fire. second half was electric and lynn ran out 2-1 winners with a pair of scrappy goals, including one from hefty jack defty. stefan moore was no good. come on the lynn!
