Broomo, you are a welcome new supporter and part of the Stagsnet family.
Having the odd spat with Belly is kind of a right of passage that most of us have been through over the years.
To be fair to him though, he has supported the club for decades and will continue to do so long after both Cloughie (and you) has moved on.
Instead of fanning the flames, just ignore the stuff he says that you don't agree with and engage with the stuff you find worthwhile.
That's what the rest of us do with each other*, and occasionally we find common ground.
I even found myself agreeing with Dan once!
*Most of the time!
The daft thing is, if he gave me time to get my feet under the table and he loves the club aa much as you say (therefore presumably defends the players, manager and owners to the hilt) he'd probably find me singing from the same hymn sheet as him.
It's the garbage "you're not one of us" so you're not entitled to an opinion that sets my back up.
I can't help the fact I'm not a lifelong Mansfield fan, my upbringing means I'm loyal to Nigel but what I can guarantee is that from the second I knew he was comimg, straight away I immersed myself into all things Mansfield Town, studied the squad of players and started watching the opposition. There won't be anyone on here who wants success for you more than I want success for you.
Football is my life. I spend an awful lot of time watching and researching and I want to come on here and be able to post freely, based on the honest view of how I see things. To have those views dismissed just because I haven't been a Mansfield fan my whole life, is frankly pathetic.
Also if everyone has to go through this rite of passage with Belly, then maybe Belly needs to ask himself why.
I'll show him the same level of respect he shows me, which so far is zero. Maybe we just got off on the wrong foot and things will get better the longer I'm here.
