  1. One of these may have got a 'positive' vote even due to being the club grass! .. if that person is ever found out they should be hounded out asap as they're also likely to have cost us Peter Clarke too!
  2. Forgetting the result - we generally lost! I remember one particular visit to Brighton where a number of fans congregated in the local pub/hotel named after the ground iirc. Anyways, the barman had a bit of a fall out with his manageress and promptly walked off leaving the bar unattended .. not the best idea they ever had! Our lot took full advantage and my endearing memory is a replica shirt adorned fan acting like the head barman at the savoy ha ha ha .. it resembled the ale trail when the last train home was about to arrive .. I've never seen so much drank in such a short time ha ha
  3. I was just going to mention that as much as i enjoyed the result at UP (club coach so travel wasn't an issue) i can't remember the round before apart from the fact we won! Great times
  4. To be honest living as close as I do I'll never need to phone! It's going to be a major decision to get my refund for several reasons, not limited to the great group of people who i sit in or around (won't know till tomorrow what they're planning to do), I have a great seat with a great view which I'd hate to lose and like I say, living behind the Chaddy, it'd be VERY hard to ignore match day lol ... I've been in that seat 20 years this year ( it was my 1st priority after leaving the RAF ) and a fan a lot longer having missed out on so much in the late 80's/early 90's .. I don't have an issue with anyone and what they choose to do, it's just I'm still a little too wound up to make a real n proper decision right now! It is what it is, and it'll be what it'll be!
  5. I've just found the crappy paper reciept (like the stuff you find in them corner shop/post office/off license style places) and said reciept says it was bought on the 1st so that's the 2 week window gone ha ha
  6. We've posted at the same time lol Cheers for the info!
  7. No answer? I'm not being funny, just I'm in the 'bought mine last week and now annoyed' group so I was wondering how easy or for that matter difficult, it may or may not be to get my money back .. Interested to know what the loophole may or may not be and how long I've got to 'cash in' ha ha

  9. Seemingly we were Champions of the Lancashire Combination League in 1906 too?
  10. yeah like i say, it has some similarities .. the pendant/medal has 3 red roses for one, but besides that it's extremely similar so thought the OP might want to divert their search somewhat! Their Founder was a bloke called Hugh Oldham too ... there's possibly a link in that way?
  11. Manchester Grammar school has 'Sapere Aude' as its motto!? The badge has some similarities to the item being pawned - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Manchester_Grammar_School#/media/File:The_Manchester_Grammar_School_Coat_of_Arms.png Maybe something in a similar guise to this - https://goo.gl/images/yHheoL
  12. This is what concerns me tbh! We're caught in a catch 22 situation - as you've rightly stated we need to start with a rebuild (with someone doing the recruiting who knows what players will be good enough!) .. funds are needed to do this obviously, but that's the crux for me! Where are they coming from? We've paid the season ticket money already - no proof but generally when we pay this 'early' it means it's needed now rather than later! .. The pitch is a high priority - you could even say #1, again where's that money coming from? I suspect Paul Jewell walked away due the shambles that is our club and how it's run, why wouldn't PS? Yeah he'd look like he's not tried that hard, but another season of dross (simply because next season could be run on a shoe string and a 'hope for the best' attitude) wouldn't appeal i don't think and there's the seemingly infinite problem - the circus starts all over again with some other 'FNG' who's expected to make do and get on with it! The players have give up, fans are giving up .. why wouldn't PS? IT'S A SHIT STATE OF AFFAIRS THAT'S FOR SURE!
