General Discussion / Re: Atrincham on Saturday POSTPONED

Starting to think the omens are against us.   Another long midweek haul to come, added to what is becoming an overcrowded fixture list.  Was it IC or SC who ran over that black cat ?

Have a funny feeling this time next week York will be two points ahead of us with Boston just a single point behind.
Have you thought of becoming a motivational speaker, Mallard?

Are you really lost as to why immigration is linked to racism ?  Not saying it always is, but can’t see why you would be “at a loss “ ..?!?....  As regards the “anti-semitism” issue - The problem with that is the anti-Israel versus anti- Jewishness argument, not about real racism at all, unless it comes from a racist stand-point.  There is no such differential in the case of real racism, which is surely about prejudice against colour, religion, nationality, etc...  Anyway, racism is a problem in society, not merely football. Let us pray, no less, that there is no crowd trouble tomorrow, for whatever reason......

 The anti Semites that were in the news during the recent election were mostly (if not all) remoaners, so would not have voted leave.

Did anyone other than the original poster actually hear the "we've got Brexit now"comment?

A couple of points. B & G:
Firstly, another poster a couple of weeks ago made a reference to the issue of anti-Semitism and it was deleted by the moderator. Do you not have to abide by the same rules?
Secondly, why ask whether anyone else heard the remark?

Stan it was you who mixed racism with politics not me. So don't call me out after your political references have been removed by the moderators.  So Merry Christmas "wally" :cheers:
No Marcus. It was the fan who called out to the black player:" Hey, we've got Brexit now!" who mixed racism and politics, 24 hours after an election. It's amazing how people who call out racism get more abuse than the racists.

Hmm Merry Christmas Stan.  Fair play for standing up and speaking out. Your stance is commendable. But why wait nearly 2 weeks before speaking out. I would like to think, after reporting the incidents, you have been waiting for the club to conduct their investigations, before going public. But I fear I am wrong. I am not that clever Stan, only got CSE's. So can you explain the difference between "overtly racist nature &  implicit racism"  I fear this is a very badly timed, look at me attention seeking type of post. Which is designed to rock the boat.

Don't be a wally Marcus. You can't report an incident unless you know who committed it, surely?  It was just a comment from the crowd. I've waited because I wasn't sure. There's nothing sinister about the timing. I suppose I have only just made up my mind. I think it's sad that you feel that calling out racism is politically motivated. Do you feel that Spurs challenge to the sports minister has a similar intention. Isn't it curious that someone who calls out racism gets attacked!
Strange old times!

I hope Lynn win but I won't be at the match or any Lynn match in the future. During the last game, at home to Dover a comment was made to one of their substitutes from the crowd. The player looked at the crowd and someone shouted: " Hey, we've had Brexit now!" Many laughed; the player in question looked extremely uncomfortable. Needless to say, the Dover player was black. During the game another black Dover player was taunted continually throughout the game. No specific reference was made of an overtly racist nature but there was probably implicit racism in the taunts.
So, I've mulled this over for days and have decided - this is very difficult as I love supporting Lynn - not to attend any more games. I don't want to be in an environment where such attitudes are common.
So, I wish the team well and anyone who I've peed off on here, many apologies and happy Christmas!

...Simply if Lynn can bring someone back or use a ressie or (and I doubt this would be possible) bring someone in on loan, then decisions have to made very soon...not next Saturday....hence me bringing it up so soon after the Dover clash.

Think this is a fair point, Norwich u23s only have 2 fixtures in the next month so maybe Alfie could have a word, alternatively Peterborough reserves next fixture is Jan 14th so there maybe an option there?  Can't see anything other than a loan but would certainly feel happier with an extra body or two (depending on the news on the injuries) for the Christmas fixtures.  Wouldn't disagree with the posts that the current squad can all make solid claims for a starting spot when fit but would hate to be left in a position where we can't cover another injury because we don't have a bench.
I wonder if any of this has occurred to Culverhouse? I hope he reads this thread.

It's a bit early for a thread about next Saturday. I want to enjoy the victory over a National League side first.

I thought the Lynn players were awesome in the penalty shootout: such cool heads under pressure. Winners all through the team. Proud to be a supporter!

I still think your post is a grumpy one. Such a downer after such a great Saturday. I'm happy to discuss this with you face to face and hope you'll hang around this time.

I see your original post has been edited and apparently not by admin....GUTLESS as well as self opiniated.....if you post something offensive towards me Gary at least have the balls to stand by it.
What makes you so confident that Admin didn't edit it Steve?
Are you hoping that Admin will kick me off the forum if I repeat it?
Admin, who edited it?

Well, from what I see week in week out, Culverhouse will get the best out of any starting 11. :scarf: :scarf: :scarf:

What a miserable post, especially after such a brilliant win. No one wants this sort of pragmatism after such an exciting Saturday.
