    Rev got a reaction from Old Sawley Popside in Tamworth   
    A very decent idea.
    Exchange of knowledge and experience between coaching staff, a place to accelerate our young players development by exposing  them to men's football earlier than may normally be possible, and a chance for Tamworth's staff to possibly learn from a professional coaching team from a higher level.
    Win win.

    I like the irony of people moaning about someone from another forum sticking their nose into our business, while going to another teams forum to report back on here what he's saying!
    I wouldn't have a clue what he was saying otherwise.

    Gemma Arterton - great actress with a social conscience. The fact she's easy on the eye is merely a bonus.
    Boris Johnson - taking one for the team here, but I'd make him my fag, so he'd feel at home.
    @jono, seems like a decent enough sort to spend a lifetime locked up with.
    Practical, funny and looks at things from a different perspective to me, being a Manc. Plus Mancs are normally quite down to earth and dry.
    @Mostyn6. It would never be boring with this fella on board.
    Witty, often controversial, and we could sink a Mythos every time Crete flashed by the window.
    I realise it wouldn't be often, as we blasted into deep space, but he'd make Mars like Kavos and Stalin's, and that's good enough for me.

    Check out Mac's results that season against the team's we'd played under Nigel.
    One point more from the reverse fixtures.
    We weren't a million miles away under Nigel.

    As ever @angieram, a perfectly put post.
    I do however doubt this forum has the reach to truly influence what fans shout out during a match, this is a little corner of the committed fan base, unrepresentative of the majority of match going fans.
    There are a few relentlessly negative posters on here, no doubt, but they're probably balanced out by those who see no fault with the current situation and the clubs current administration.
    There's no doubt this little corner of the internet is less fun than a few years back, but then again there's less to laugh at.
    Finally, keep posting up those little clips from Twitter etc. As a fan whose only social media interaction is pretty much this forum, such links provide the chance to watch and read content I'd otherwise miss. 
    They might be fluff, they might not, but I'd never see them without you and your fellow linkers posting them!

    I think what we have here is the classic confusion between supporting the team in person, and what people post online on a dedicated forum set up to deliver our verdicts.
    I'll hammer them on here, if they deserve it, yet I wouldn't act that way while at a game, and I suspect you all would behave similarly, judging on your previous posts?
    There's a world of difference between supporting the team in person, and talking about what we think is wrong on here, including being critical of individual players or management, and confusing the two insults the intelligence of many.

    Yes agreed, I've assumed that the situation hasn't been able to be resolved informally from your comments in this thread.
    But you're right, some people unfortunately don't have any self awareness and in my experience before things get out of hand a quiet chat with the person concerned to let them know that what they're saying or doing is unacceptable to yourself often, but not always, works.

    See it a bit at work and it can be awful,blanking someone,cliques,people not invited on social events,exclusive Whatsapp groups,twisting what someone has done or said.
    Equally as bad when someone knows about it and does nothing about it.
    Hate bullying.

    Probably shouldn’t post this. But tonight I’ve had to deal with my cousin posting on Facebook wanting to take his own life with long Covid.
    100 miles away, having to phone the police, get them round is not how I planned my night.
    Scary how it’s messing good people. Take it seriously please.

    I agree with that to some extent, Rev, but it sets a tone that others repeat here and elsewhere, sometimes directly to players e.g. on Twitter. I also suspect some players find their way onto Forums like ours from time to time - poor souls! 
    I have never personally had an issue with posters who post constructive criticism of either players or the more general position of the club, but you have to admit there are a number of posters who are relentlessly negative about everything to do with the club and are overly personal in their abuse of individual players, coaching staff or the owner. While they may be able to shake this off and get fully behind the team on matchdays (which I have my doubts about in some instances 😉), many others who are less able to detach themselves in that way take it on board and shout out the abuse directly to players at games.
    I often post little snippets from the club Twitter feed on here to try to introduce something positive to chat about just to break the cycle, but the amount of smart-arse replies I get when I do discourages me from even trying.
    And I don't mean the jokey stuff, I mean the dragging absolutely everything that the club does into a negative. I think quite a lot of posters find it tiresome. I know I do.

    Exactly. You put it so well. The way I see it is that the powers that be, the owners of DCFC, are custodians of our great club, that is all. We as fans deserve openness and transparency as well as the right to question things when big decisions are made. We ask the questions and make our points known because we want the best for the club we love and support. We want the club to be run well both on and off the pitch and that will mean at times questions will be asked and some criticism made. However, come 3pm on a Saturday, after my 5 pints in the Brunswick, once I get to the ground I am 100% behind the owners, the manager and whatever players are chosen to play for that game. For me that is what being a football supporter is all about and is as valid as those fans that choose to accept without question every decision the owners and management make. As you say, confusing the two is totally missing the point👍
