BKK old chap people aren't being negative are they? Just questioning questionable decisions. Why are we surrendering our own end which has always been the home end?? We're playing Hereford not Millwall.

Intuitively, we should have had the Bulla. Perhaps that decision and it’s rationale could be aired and potentially reviewed? It’s not too late?

We are gonna be like rabbits in the headlights once again. Come on WES be positive but I sadly can't see anything other than a heavy defeat. Patience with the current players may well finally run out. Is BW the real deal anyway?


Yes, surely shaping up to be a farcical event where we concede 3 goals down the left whilst standing under some scaffolding in the rain being out sung by 500 inebriated fans of some sort of f'ing super team from a lower division. At the end lynch.mob and proper not happy steam onto the pitch tearing up their season tickets in front of BW. Still no official photographer to record the debacle and the whole thing is Marsden’s fault. Finally, it all kicks off outside the ground. Can't wait for Saturday.

Only kidding. Come on Wealdstone, come on!

You need to stop stealing my draft posts matey!

Well played sir, well played.

Just to clarify, that's 51 league games. In fact it's now 52 after another win last night. Since that record began we have lost on the road a couple of times, in the Vase final at Wembley and at Tonbridge in the FA Trophy last term, so there is some hope for you ;)

Extraordinary stats/performance in any league.

Looking at the picture on Twitter at the current state of the El Pirata stand, it’s interesting that this stand did not survive the storm but the other, far older ones did. I guess that was because it wasn’t finished? Given we didn’t finish it, I don’t suppose we can claim?

It must have been due to the wind/gusts blowing up the slope, a la 4-4 draw vs Truro, catching it like a sail. If we had the same stand in that game we would probably have casualties to deal with.

Funny you should mention that game in particular. Actually the 2-1 home victory against them on October 21st last year. Watch the video on youtube.

Actually, not funny in the slightest. Couldn't be any less funny in fact.

Sometimes it is best to live in blissful ignorance of the facts and be able to sleep soundly at night...
