Eight Years Ago Today

Postby bellwhiff » Sun Dec 02, 2018 1:20 pm

The Leech locked us out of Field Mill.

Look at how far we have come in the intervening years.

We owe everything to John and his good lady wife.

If anyone ever doubts our trajectory, we are definitely on the upswing.

Great post. Just illustrates the progress made. The future is rosy (or yellow, (or amber)) bright anyway

Better than that would be all who've some affinity to our club make a special attempt to get to the next home game and show him Mansfied is truly bothered about t'club. I'm sure he'd find that more beneficial on his wallet.

Sorry this isn't about 'forcing' anyone to do anything. Yorkie suggested an open bar, I suggested it'd be better if those with any affinity to t'club 'tried' to make the 1st home game after t'final payment. If they do they do, if they don't they don't, but I bet JR would think it special if they did.

It annoys me he's getting any payment from this club.
I'm happy I've forgotten his first name.

Let me remind you, (in my opinion) his name is... arsehole. And that is being very polite.
