I intend to donate as well when I’ve seen the forthcoming video.  But, I keep seeing suggestions of a  “Quiz Night”......  Surely you’d need about a hundred of them to make any impression on the sums needed either to survive or progress ?!.....
Anyway, the big thing is first to survive as individuals, then revert to helping the club to achieve National or League status.  On the survival front, don’t follow Stanley Johnson’s ignorance by going to the pub, and so far I’ve heard Sunak’s plans for businesses, but haven’t heard any plans to help out the people who rent, or pull the pints, or turn up when offered the chance on Zero-hour contracts....


Last quiz night I believe raised in the region of 500 pounds,not to be sniffed at!

I say play on,you make up your own mind whether you go to watch or not,we are all adults and can make up our own minds,you could catch this **** standing next to someone in the chip shop?  I myself being put in the class as the most vulnerable to catch the disease am doing all I can to live life.At a game you are out in the open air,not enclosed,so long as people don't cough and spit all over you it will be okay,didn't see too many jousts being called off during the Black death? :dontknow:

Are there rules on here about sticking to an argument and not denigrating other posters? It's a pity that some resort to personal attacks.

I didn't personally attack you as I don't know you personally,so carry on playing the victim! You are in second place to Mr Cleeve,but at least we know who he is? :shark:

No, I teach them to base their opinions on evidence Griss. Again, shame that you have to get personal but I won't hold it against you. Have a great day!

I would actually have to know you to get personal,my comments are based on what you have posted, not on what I think of you personally? Nice that you hold yourself in such high esteem. :dontknow:
"Poor me syndrome" is a criticism of me personally. Don't hide behind the I don't know you so how can I be personal nonsense. I recognise an ad hominem approach when I see one. Look it up on Wikipedia if you're not sure what it is. It's what you're doing.

And you teach children?
Yes, I do indeed. Been doing it for almost 25 years now. I've been a Head of English in a couple of schools, it's been really fulfilling. I still enjoy it now.

So being educated you presume I am not? :oldman"
How have I done that?

Last post on this thread Stan,owing to your refereeing in the past and your educational status you know better than me! I may be a bit thick,but I have held high positions,In the Youth service,Social services and probation! You just have the protected comfort of teaching,join me for a chat on real life if you need to! :oldman"

Stan this may come as a bit of a surprise to you,but if i do not know you personally I cannot give an opinion of you and deem it personal,a hand shake and a brief chat after a game does not constitute knowing each other! The number of posters on here that I actually know I can count on the fingers of one foot,so all my differences of opinion are base on what they post,and yes that includes poor you! :dontknow:

Sorry Stan but since you disappeared from the scene over the Brexit comment you seem to have come back just to disagree with everybody elses point of view? Up until then even if I didn't agree with you I thought you had a fairly balanced argument, but now you just want to disagree with everyone,and at times that can conflict your own opinions. Go away rebot and come back with the voice of reason you used to have! :red card:
I'm not sure who I'm disagreeing with. It was me who initially stated that the ref got the Henderson decision right. Posters have been disagreeing with me.


Poor me syndrome again,Is that what you teach your pupils? Never admit you are wrong,just bang your head against the wall enough times and people will get fed up with challenging you?  :banghead; :banghead; :banghead;

Then you have the foul over by the touchline that should have been a red for their player but they got the free kick? Have you time lapse watched that one?

Referees at this level have to rely on their judgement,no VAR here! Anyone in their right mind being in the position of the refere or the linesman would have given a foul our way,they went with the shout from Guiseley players,the basis on which most decisions were mad during the game! :banghead; :banghead; :banghead;
"Anyone in their right mind!" You mean anyone with your mind. Suck it up Griss, you know it wasn't a pen!


At what point did I say it was a penalty,I was about 20 yards away,it was a foul on Hendo,no way should he have got a yellow,should have had a free kick,and their player a red,being the last defender! But no matter Stan you know best! :banghead; :banghead; :banghead;
It wasn't a foul and it was a yellow card for simulation. I've sent the video link to 4 people not at the game yesterday, one of whom is a former ref ( I am a former ref myself) and they all agree with me.


You really must be sad to go to those lengths to prove a player of the team you claim to support guilty,to everyone behind that goal it was a foul on Henderson,and their player was lucky to get away with it,an opinion voiced by some of their fans! just concentrate on Brexit and vow never to attend another game! :banghead; :banghead; :banghead;
Shame this has to drift into personal criticism but unfortunately that often tends to happen when arguments flounder. I also thought it was a penalty at first but the evidence changed my mind. I think it's important to have an open mind and to be prepared to change it when evidence contradicts what you originally thought, don't you? I mean sticking to an untenable position just for the sake of "winning" an argument, well, that would be sad, very sad indeed.

Did I at any point say that it was a penalty?
