    He's at it again (Dale, I assume). At least he's backed off from the Beeb this time but it seems like the Phoenix club have rattled his cage.

    Yes, I can see that. The toxicity leaks out of every sentence. You can tell whoever wrote that has never genuinely owned any mistakes they made.

    If it's any guide, our first season "back" with 1883 in the NPL was superb.

    As I've said, we were made more than welcome everywhere we played by club and supporters alike, with one notable exception, and particularly great thanks due to our hosts at Bishop.

    Hope you have a similar experience.

    Huge “and then the assailant turned the gun on himself to avoid capture” energy to that statement.

    Has he taken the worst of David Icke and Nigel Farage and fed them into a random sentence generator?

    Aye, I can see that. There's bound to be some indifference and some who are mad keen. I am surprised though at that small few who are vocally opposed to AFC. Surely their formation gives a greater chance to Bury FC still existing in the future, rather than doing nowt and just witnessing a slow death?


    Best case scenario, however unlikely, would appear to be the phoenix team doing their thing and then melting back into the original club and returning to Gigg, once Dale and all the baggage has gone. I wish you the best of luck pal.

    You may find you don't go back to watching Bury in the way you used to. Found other things to do, new friends, hobbies, interests etc. Thirty one years is a long time to support a club like that and things are different now.

    AFC Bury won their first ever game this evening 5-0 at Daisy Hill. 150 lucky souls had tickets. Was our resident Shaker one of them?

    Ditto York City. We have a pretty eye-watering debt to our chairman's other business now. We really should have been moving to the new stadium with a decent war chest from the sale of Bootham Crescent to use to really kick on in terms of on-field matters. But instead, the combination of the farcical construction project at the new place and the astonishingly bad running of the football club in recent years mean that there's a strong suspicion the sale of BC won't now even generate enough to pay the chairman's loans back, so we'll be limping over to the new place with the team stuck in the sixth tier and with barely a tea cup, never mind a war chest, to do anything about it.
