The manager and most of the best players jumping ship as soon as the season was over.
I must admit, this did make me chuckle on one of the social media accounts at weekend:

Re: The Football

OLDHAM ATHLETIC How will you do? New season, new revolving door of players with about a dozen out and about a dozen in. We'll struggle until around November, string out three or four wins together and then hit a bad patch until around March when we bring a FOOTBALLING GOD in on loan and notch up tho...

I'm still after Malcolm Shotton.

Ahum, we'll leave it there.

Re: Flowers

They were absolutely batshit brilliant at GUTC. Just looking at the crowd with jaws virtually on the floor was amazing.

Re: The Footballp

3 Saints' players (Lambert, Lallana & Shaw) in the England World Cup squad, although I'd be surprised if all 3 are still with us come the start of next season. I think you'll keep hold of Lambert, you'll almost certainly lose the others. It's shit that, isn't it? You get this massive purple patch, ...

Things you can do for starters: Vote no in this web poll Sign this petition Join up with Against League 3 and follow 'em on Twitter (they're already organising actions) Quite fancy a high-profile organised boycott of the FA's sponsors, meself. You could also boycott Sky Sports, although I suspect n...

Re: The Football

He's a fucking twat is what he is. He called for City to be kicked out of the league when we went into administration. It was hugely satisfying to see him being sacked for 'financial irregularities'. I didn't know this. Was it when he was manager of us? I basically think of him as a pantomime villa...

Re: The Football

We took great pleasure in ensuring Tranmere went down, Ronnie Moore's malodorous spirit still lingers around them and he's not popular round our way. He served some time for us at Boundary Park also. Not entirely sure he was mega popular there either. He wasn't popular, in fact it was the owners kn...

Re: Light It Up 008 | Manchester | 20/4 | Easter All-Dayer +

Sadly it looks like this gig is cancelled. We had a message today from the promoter saying that due to personal reasons the gig would not be going ahead. Shame - we were looking forward to our first Manchester gig for 24 years! No word on whether it can be re-scheduled. I guess if you've bought tic...

Re: The Football

I know some fans of other clubs take the mickey out of our larger crowds, reckoning its only because tickets are so cheap, but I think the club deserves massive credit for making it so affordable. Bradford is a depressed city with shite prospects and its far better to have 13000 regulars paying les...

Blue Monday is and always has been my 'run for a piss' song. I sometimes go for Soft Cell's 12" Tainted Love which segues into Where Did Our Love Go.

Good luck with it all.

NEWS! We've finalised the Easter Extras. Headlining alongside the fabulous Flatmates are Vic Godard & The Subway Sect . Probably one of the first leading lights in the whole DIY indiepop scene, VC&TSS are celebrating a full thirty years in the dirty ole' music bizz with an anthology album and virtua...

Re: Light It Up 008 | Manchester | 20/4 | Easter All-Dayer +

Looks awesome! Do you know at this point roughly what times of day different acts will be on? Reason for asking: I may head up to see my parents that weekend and travel in from theirs, but trains back out to the suburbs where they live tend to stop before 11:30, so I'm wondering if I'll miss a big ...

No worries. Here's that match report from the Huddersfield Town match. When I say destroyed! it were only 1-0 but one of those 1-0's that should have been 5-0's.

Re: The Football

Oumare Tounkara, then. What's the story Jamie? Had a season on loan with us in 2010-11 I think. Maybe it was 2011-12? Anyway, he was amazing for the first half of the season. Big, strong and was labelled "A human wrecking ball" by the Huddersfield Examiner after we destroyed them at Boundary Park. ...
