  1. I guess it would also be a bit silly paying £2.50 for a bottle top too Anyway its only Ebbsfleet who through bottles, twice last season at least ???
  2. I think it will be tight game, it usually is between us two 2-2 last season at their place, I expect a hostile crowd and bottle tops removed, never know why they do that, as its the bottle I want to chuck
  3. Slabs too lazy for me, and never really worked with us, funnily his best goal coming against you a few season ago, a flying header, but doesn't suit a quick mobile side. Stortford are not the team they were, but they do keep it on the deck and braek quickly so I am with you on wondering if he will fit the bill for them? So we are away to Dartford, the nearest Ground too me left in the cup, so travelling won't be a problem. I expect it to be a tough typical cup game, it could go either way, and it will be interesting see if and how far we have progresses from last season..
  4. Hi Dave Chelmo look in superb form, we have been there and have the t-shirt enjoy it, and no reason you cannot push for the title, I won't be sad to see Ebbsfleet make a balls up of it again. Do you know they are now worth 7 million quid, there value seems to be doubling every 12 months according to their company accounts. Maidenhead look strong, and my early season hunch St Albans will be there or there abouts, I think. As for us, we have been described as just an average 'National side' which is the biggest compliment we could have. Life is tough in the National, no easy games, but we don't seem out of our depth. Off the pitch there seems alto more work too which is keeping me off this forum. 1st round draw tonight, hoping for a home tie as I am not going globe trotting. Good luck and keep the good run going...
  5. Gowd England are rubbish, my National side could have put more past Malta. Difficult to tell from the angle, but is that Rooney
  6. Sevenoaks top temp was 32.4 currently 30.7 due to some cloud.
  7. Hi Dave Chelmo still sitting in a decent position to challenge, Ebbsfleet might be seeking a new manager soon as they have not really been setting the league alight. One of my hunches St Albans do look good. and Maidehead the surprise package. As for us, well I thought the wheels came off as we went down 4-0 at Chester but Bank hol Monday saw us pull off yet another shock win over Dagenham & Redbridge, so we are back on the rails and have a nice trip to Gateshead this Saturday 620 mile round journey :-(
  8. Very quiet on here, so I will ramble to myself. 2 weeks into our Nation league campaign and 10pts on the board sitting 3rd, our highest ever position in the footbalk pyrimid. Having beaten 3 ex league sides on the spin, Lincoln, Torquay and Macclesfield, things could not be going better. Although we have been called a'pub team' tin pot and we have sh*t support and a sh*t ground. All the teams we have beaten have apparetly played their worst games in living memory against us. The big teams make demands on what they want when they visit. Oh and they steal our video and charge their fans to watch it. This league is certainly a eye opener....
  9. If they can lose to Torquay then they can certainly lose to Northampton.
  10. WOW! All this money flying around the PL, its just crazy stuff, I mean 47mill for John Stones? 89mill for Pogba, that's probably the entire playing budget for ever team in England from League 1 down. A elite top division with a national side that can't beat Iceland, and a West Brom side that can't beat Torquay??
  11. Hi Dave. This is my first chance to get on the forum at all since the season started, the national is a brutal place both on and off the pitch. We have to supply footage to BT Sport, and there is a online match system where we have to upload full matches within 24hrs for referees and accessors. It does mean I can watch any match in full, but then I am too knackered to watch football now. As far as our start goes, we lost 3-1 to a side that had 3 shots and scored all 3m we had about 20 and hit everything but the goal, you cannot do that in the National and get away with it. On Tuesday we played away to favs Forest Green Rovers, and got a well deserved 1-1 draw, so from relegation to playoff candidates in 4 days. I agree Ebbsfleet will not cock-up again, although they looked weaker this season when we played a friendly against them the other week , some of their players have walked away. I am not sure about Margate, the money seemed to go, then come back again, so who knows what is going on there. Chelmo have every chance, but 2 outsiders would be WSM and St Albans, both sides impressed me at the back end of last season. WSM held us to a draw at out place in the middle of our run, which wasn't a bad feat.
  12. The political nature of a government impacts on issues such as climate change and the possible consequences. Imo political discussion is reasonable on a weather forum.

      in due respect you never used it, and we just talked about whatever i don't think we ever spoke about politics or anything to do with any event. 

      and yes, we did talk about the weather more likely than not.

    3. Gael_Force


      I didn't use it, a look once or twice was sufficient.

    4. Dami


      says it all.

  13. I have 2 cars, but the one we collect cyclists on is our Mitsubishi Shogun, I can even go across fields to catch em, don't think being behind me is any safer, with those exhaust fumes they don't last long
  14. I am really sorry to hear you have decided to suspend the serious discussion forum. As a avid user and poster I feel it should be re-instated and those not treating the discussion with respect should be removed. The few many should not suffer for the many. As for forum and its use, yes its primarily for weather related matters, but it has grown to be much more.

    Please reinstate this forum discussion.

    Thank you

      That's the wrong attitude to have I'm afraid and will be a reason that footfall to this forum starts to decline. As Dami has said, there are people who come on here to feel part of a community and people who like to have their input on topical events as well as the weather discussion. The two go along together very nicely. saying 'there's plenty of other places on the internet things like politics can be discussed' is a slap in the face to a large cross section of your active members list. Also what happens in winter when the usual trolls come out of hibernation in the model thread? You're going to get just as much grief then.

      I would suggest those who find it too tough going being a moderator have a serious think as to whether they want to continue having moderator benefits on the site, because those that find it too tough going could always hand over the reigns to others who I'm sure would give their left arm to have a shot at moderating a site like this.

      Just my 2 pence worth.

      Members of the moderating team have generously volunteered their time to moderate a weather forum not a political bear pit.  We all accept grief is part of the job, we all get involved in the snow drama! And often it carries away with itself.  That's fine - we've all signed up to help with that.  But nobody signed up to moderate the snide often ridiculously partisan political discussions. So they're no longer available on this weather forum.

      Sorry Crewe (well I'm not actually) but that's absolute nonsense. All we've done is remove a section (and not said how long for) which was starting to attract some very very dubious views. Since closing it, we've not had a single borderline-racist post, blatantly racist post or post where someone feigns absolute outrage because someone has a different opinion to their own. 

      Perhaps we will some members over this. That would be a shame as we are (and this is important) a weather forum. But if we do, I suspect a good proportion will have only ever contributed to the serious discussion area. I also suspect that a lot of people are completely turned off by the sort of nonsense that has been seen in there. 

      Yes we could simply ban people, but we'd have to base a lot of that on our own subjective opinion. I'd much rather come here and talk to someone about the weather without knowing their political views as that's got nothing to do with the whole purpose of this place. 


  15. Just maxed out at 16:28 at 34.4 very briefly before dropping back.
