    Peterborough are tough cookies especially when they have Ajose that knows (near) everything about us on the football pitch. At the same time we also know everything about him but they know more than us unless we have done some scouting.

    I think today will be tough so as usual I will keep my faith in the town and say 2-1. COYR

    Can we expect a final chance for Nile?

    He has so much to offer if he can only knuckle down, I know he has had loads of chances but surely the other players could get him to toe the line. Maybe I'm being nieve but if he is available for the rest of the season (Get's cleared of the rape charge) he can power us to the play offs.
    He's a great number 9 but also our best defender at set pieces.

    Very tight game today and Posh aren't a team that will ever roll over. Excellent header from Ranger and good hold up play from him as well which is a vital must but MOM today? No way Jose! Probably that accolade should have gone to young Branco but Kasim did well and scored a much needed 2nd goal while Twinkle Mass and Mason were less effective perhaps. All that said a well battled win against tough opposition.
    Scouse- thanks for the dugout scramble update couldn't see from the DR what was occurring. I abhor this type of protest where almost all 22 players are getting involved and hounding the ref. the Posh keeper ran from his goal to join in. FA/FL/FIFA need to clamp down on this - a warning to the masses to clear off with the promise of a booking for dissent for non-compliance.
    Deserved red for Tomlin after lunge at Kasim but thought the officials did well today.

    Who said life at the County Ground would be boring after wassisname threw his toys out of the pram and took all his photos with him :-)

    After they scored I thought we just need to pack the midfield to grind out a boring last 10 or 12 minutes - as it turned out you couldn't take your eye off the game (or the dug-outs) for a minute!! That's two battling home wins against two of the better teams in this league, with an away draw at Bradford in between, and it wasn't a bad display on Boxing Day at Brentford.

    It seems this cultured passing team has now developed a solid spine to go with their undoubted skills. A special mention has to go to Rossi Branco for the way he dominated the area like a seasoned pro, and that man up front came back and added his usual magic. And finally I hope Mark can enjoy a quiet drink with a wry smile tonight after beating his previous employers who gave him no chance to settle into the job. Cooper's Red Army must have been music to his ears.

    Excellent win today yes it was all Peterborough in the 2nd half but how many saves did Foderingham have to make?
    I think we are nearly there with the team and formation,not perfect and srill things to work on but i feeling pretty optimistic right now.
    Branco looks a very good CB and who can play a bit and i think the Branco - Ward - Hall at the back looked pretty good.
    As for Ranger that was a surprise but a total one as i thought Sam's article was leading to this today.

    Ranger MOM easily today led the line so well and obviously not fit but played the full game and looked fitter than Danny who was taken off looking knackered. Nile was immense and lots of his hard work goes unnoticed and I am sure we could have lost today without him. Scored while has was on the floor seconds before after being dragged to the floor but got up and scored and made Kasims goal really as he took the defence away with his run to the left. Branco could have got MOM really as he was outstanding and what a find this guy has been looks like a star in the making and crucial tackles today and looks so cool. Gutsy win today and great to see us grind out a win at last against a superb Posh side who failed with the shooting and final ball really and hardly troubled Fods for all their possession. Have to say well done Lee Power after he stated that the players asked him as a group to give Ranger one more chance so that is good enough for me and my only concern is for Town to win football matches and if Nile helps that process then that's fine by me but fair play to the players that was such a decent gesture on their part. Yes we can go on until the cows come home about Nile Ranger but a few clubs have these rebellious types, Balotelli was very similar as mentioned by Ferndale and there are a few rogues playing league football but it will have to be one week at a time I suppose. Great 3 points and very unexpected as was the Coventry game but makes up for Wolves and Posh away games that we dominated.

    Well what a game and, firstly, well done to the referee. He left hard fair tackles unpunished, tried to play advantage, let the game flow and used his assistants when they were needed.

    First half was cagey with neither side really dominant but fortunately we created the best opening and took it. Second half was mainly one-way, caused IMO by sitting too deep, but the eventual winner was a classic smash and grab. Brilliant shimmy, off the ball run (Ranger) and finish. Nervy last 10 but a fantastic result.

    Players to pick out for me.

    Branco, dodgy with virtually his first touch but didn't look back after. His recovery to intercept the player put through at 1-0 was superb.
    Ranger, premier league player that took two of their players to mark and still held the ball up.
    Kasim, looked back to early season form and scored a superb goal.

    Nathan T looked to be getting back to early season form. Dani G worked hard upfront and at the back in an unfamiliar role. Wardy barely missed a header and Hall played well in an unfamiliar position (he did look a bit lost when getting forward)

    Little doubting the commitment today I feel we just need to take that away and we could acheive what I didn't expect.

    Well done Town.

    COYMR

    As surprised as many others I guess when I saw Ranger named today but could this be a turning point in his career, court case excepted. If so, fair play to Mark and Lee for your patience. Too early to judge but if he can get his head down with Town for the next 6-12 months he has the ability to get back to the top. I wonder how much of the change is down to the age of the other Town players and not being amongst the bifg 'I am's. Could be good for Town and good for him but, if guilty, Nile who.

    Stacks of credit to Cooper for this win. Strength in numbers at the back was the only way we were going to beat them. Attack is not always the best form of defence. Posh would have ripped us to shreds if we'd played an expansive game.

    Branco was the big difference today. As well as having a good game himself, he provided Ward with the reassurance to play more like he did when he had Flint alongside him.

    Ranger has almost mystical ability to control a football and to emerge from skirmishes with the ball at his feet, apparently without doing anything different from anyone else. Amazing. Such a pity about his "other side".

    Loads to be admired in Kasim's goal - the way he started the move with sublime skill, made space with his run and of course the brilliant finish.

    Totally agree about Ranger, I was saying today how he goes past players with ease without seemingly doing anything, he is also much quicker than he appears and eats up ground on defenders yet if you look at him he looks like he is jogging! First time I've seen Branco and very impressed, early on he just got it and passed it simply which was sensible thing to do as game developed his confidence grew and some very timely interventions. Class goal from Kasim and if played as more attacking mid I think he would score quite a few he has it in his locker. We rode our luck a lot in 2nd half, kept giving ball back to them but some resolute defending. Tomlin deserved his red he had one on him ever since Kasim crunched him with hard but fair tackle first half, class player though. COYR!

    Quite right Den Branco was the difference and so cool with the ball and got some last ditch tackles in especially when their guy was clean through. This was the game many of us fans have been waiting for where we defended in numbers and actually ground out a result. Great tactical game today and a marvelous result against one of the teams above us. Our home record is certainly very impressive and long may it continue. Have to say we look a better side with Nile leading the line so no wonder the players begged Power to give him one more chance. You could see Ranger at the end of the game as he looked so happy with all the Town players as they were coming off. Nice to see Cooper on the pitch at the end. What a shame Andrew Black could not be tempted back to invest as this time I feel we are building the right way without spending money like confetti.

    If I remember correctly Town players showed him their pleasure when he scored. Before the game I was told that several players together told Coops that they were happy for Nile to play today. Apparently Nile had apologised to them for his recent failures to train with them. Whether Nile really has seen the error of his ways remains to be seen !

    Well what a game and, firstly, well done to the referee. He left hard fair tackles unpunished, tried to play advantage, let the game flow and used his assistants when they were needed.

    First half was cagey with neither side really dominant but fortunately we created the best opening and took it. Second half was mainly one-way, caused IMO by sitting too deep, but the eventual winner was a classic smash and grab. Brilliant shimmy, off the ball run (Ranger) and finish. Nervy last 10 but a fantastic result.

    Players to pick out for me.

    Branco, dodgy with virtually his first touch but didn't look back after. His recovery to intercept the player put through at 1-0 was superb.
    Ranger, premier league player that took two of their players to mark and still held the ball up.
    Kasim, looked back to early season form and scored a superb goal.

    Nathan T looked to be getting back to early season form. Dani G worked hard upfront and at the back in an unfamiliar role. Wardy barely missed a header and Hall played well in an unfamiliar position (he did look a bit lost when getting forward)

    Little doubting the commitment today I feel we just need to take that away and we could acheive what I didn't expect.

    Well done Town.

    As surprised as many others I guess when I saw Ranger named today but could this be a turning point in his career, court case excepted. If so, fair play to Mark and Lee for your patience. Too early to judge but if he can get his head down with Town for the next 6-12 months he has the ability to get back to the top. I wonder how much of the change is down to the age of the other Town players and not being amongst the bifg 'I am's. Could be good for Town and good for him but, if guilty, Nile who.

    If the jury isn't convinced beyond reasonable doubt that he's guilty, he'll be free to continue being a professional footballer. But he's never behaved like one yet. Will he ever start?

    Don't know Den what are Wednesday's lottery numbers ?

    On the field he has behaved like a professional footballer. Off the field he has been foolish (polite version). Plenty at football matches week-in, week-out, on the pitch, off the pitch that are the same but not in the spotlight. I know people that were complete aerosols when they were his age but butter wouldn't now melt. Plenty that were aerosols that are still aerosols. There are also plenty of big names in the public eye with a good image that are complete aerosols.

    IMO, if he can and does change it should be accepted. If he is found not guilty it has to be accepted. Will he change, you tell me ?

    Den,

    I appreciate your comments last night, but each of us have views on here that vary between casual, much stronger and very entrenched at the top end of the scale.

    In the case of Ranger, my views are as follows;

    1. WE should NOT have signed him the first place. BIG MISTAKE.

    2. He does not turn up on time, if indeed at all for training.

    3. He is not a team player, only a very selfish individual.

    4. His forthcoming trial has little to do with Swindon Town, but is coming up fast and could only damage the club's reputation, regardless of the outcome.

    5. All the premature talk of terminating his contract this week was totally incorrect, without him having a ''fair hearing''. SAM, hang your head in shame, you may well have cost Town the balance of Ranger's contract with your headlines all week. Perhaps that is why we had to keep him?

    6. Several posters have recently suggested we open Stratton Bank to youngsters at a special discount, to increase attendance figures. To watch the model footballer Ranger play perhaps? What a stupid idea!!

    7. Mr Power had gone up in a lot of people's opinions recently, including mine, but after playing Ranger today, Mr Power may clearly lack any sort of integrity? SHAME ON YOU MR POWER.

He's a joy to watch and his behaviour on the pitch belies his violent actions off it but I still think signing him was a mistake.

    Jock,

    1) why should we have not signed him, innocence until proven guilty, we took a chance and it has turned out in our favour.

    2) He has problems, live wit it.

    3) Not a team player?? what games have you been watching, no other player holds the ball up so well and brings others into the game.

    4) Why would it damage our reputation?

    5) as per usual the paper has got it wrong, what's that to do with Ranger?

    6) How many players are really role models these days, stupid comments regards opening SB

    7) Listening to the chants from the fans today there's no doubt they are behind the board, management and Ranger. Think your in the minority.

    Great win today by the sounds of it and Posh despite their current run are always going to be tough. I had not seen the team news when Ranger's name came up as openind scorer. As I could not make it today would be interested from someone there if the other players celebrated with Ranger - always a tell take sign if he was on his own. At the Coventry game I was thinking the same things to watch the others if he scored but he never did.

    Glad to have him playing but the club need to stick to an agreed way forward, he cannot carry on doing his own thing.

    Stacks of credit to Cooper for this win. Strength in numbers at the back was the only way we were going to beat them. Attack is not always the best form of defence. Posh would have ripped us to shreds if we'd played an expansive game.

    Branco was the big difference today. As well as having a good game himself, he provided Ward with the reassurance to play more like he did when he had Flint alongside him.

    Ranger has almost mystical ability to control a football and to emerge from skirmishes with the ball at his feet, apparently without doing anything different from anyone else. Amazing. Such a pity about his "other side".

    Loads to be admired in Kasim's goal - the way he started the move with sublime skill, made space with his run and of course the brilliant finish.

    We rode our luck a bit but Cooper got his reward for spot on tactics. He's doing a sterling job.

    Den, I quite often disagree with parts of your posts, but always find them a must-read. I have to say though I agree 100% with this one. Your comments about Ranger's style were interesting, as I often wondered if it's my rose tinted specs that make the ball seem to stick to his feet, while he languidly drifts past opponents. Whatever happens to him later this month I will always be left with the feeling that I've witnessed something special while he's been here.

    Stacks of credit to Cooper for this win. Strength in numbers at the back was the only way we were going to beat them. Attack is not always the best form of defence. Posh would have ripped us to shreds if we'd played an expansive game.

    Branco was the big difference today. As well as having a good game himself, he provided Ward with the reassurance to play more like he did when he had Flint alongside him.

    Ranger has almost mystical ability to control a football and to emerge from skirmishes with the ball at his feet, apparently without doing anything different from anyone else. Amazing. Such a pity about his "other side".

    Loads to be admired in Kasim's goal - the way he started the move with sublime skill, made space with his run and of course the brilliant finish.

    We rode our luck a bit but Cooper got his reward for spot on tactics. He's doing a sterling job.

    Den, I quite often disagree with parts of your posts, but always find them a must-read. I have to say though I agree 100% with this one. Your comments about Ranger's style were interesting, as I often wondered if it's my rose tinted specs that make the ball seem to stick to his feet, while he languidly drifts past opponents. Whatever happens to him later this month I will always be left with the feeling that I've witnessed something special while he's been here.

    Here`s another thought to offer on Nile ! I don't recall ever seen him get caught offside either ! Someone near me declared in a loud voice how little he had done during the second half. He was double marked robustly and still remained a joy to watch i.m.o. Something special ? Yes !

    Bit late posting but just one thing to add re comment about other players responding to Ranger. Nile ran over to Kasim when he was celebrating our 2nd goal to congratulate him and you could see from the gestures that Kasim was thanking him for his run off the ball that gave him the space to score. Looked friendly and inclusive to me. Ranger has a fantastic talent whatever his mischief off the field.

    There's only one Nile Ranger (thank God for that lol) Coops is doing a grand job chaps,he's got a Chairman with not much dosh,working to a very tight budget,working with a lot of loans and on top of that his best player is a very naughty boy who just does his own thing!we all had doubts if Coops was up to the job?but what a good job he's doing so far and not forgetting Luke he's also doing a grand job,one improvement please chaps our away form needs sorting but keep up the good work lads!!!!!!!!!

    Well what a game and, firstly, well done to the referee. He left hard fair tackles unpunished, tried to play advantage, let the game flow and used his assistants when they were needed.

    First half was cagey with neither side really dominant but fortunately we created the best opening and took it. Second half was mainly one-way, caused IMO by sitting too deep, but the eventual winner was a classic smash and grab. Brilliant shimmy, off the ball run (Ranger) and finish. Nervy last 10 but a fantastic result.

    Players to pick out for me.

    Branco, dodgy with virtually his first touch but didn't look back after. His recovery to intercept the player put through at 1-0 was superb.
    Ranger, premier league player that took two of their players to mark and still held the ball up.
    Kasim, looked back to early season form and scored a superb goal.

    Nathan T looked to be getting back to early season form. Dani G worked hard upfront and at the back in an unfamiliar role. Wardy barely missed a header and Hall played well in an unfamiliar position (he did look a bit lost when getting forward)

    Little doubting the commitment today I feel we just need to take that away and we could acheive what I didn't expect.

    Well done Town.

    As surprised as many others I guess when I saw Ranger named today but could this be a turning point in his career, court case excepted. If so, fair play to Mark and Lee for your patience. Too early to judge but if he can get his head down with Town for the next 6-12 months he has the ability to get back to the top. I wonder how much of the change is down to the age of the other Town players and not being amongst the bifg 'I am's. Could be good for Town and good for him but, if guilty, Nile who.
    If the jury isn't convinced beyond reasonable doubt that he's guilty, he'll be free to continue being a professional footballer. But he's never behaved like one yet. Will he ever start?
    Den,

    I appreciate your comments last night, but each of us have views on here that vary between casual, much stronger and very entrenched at the top end of the scale.

    In the case of Ranger, my views are as follows;

    1. WE should NOT have signed him the first place. BIG MISTAKE.

    2. He does not turn up on time, if indeed at all for training.

    3. He is not a team player, only a very selfish individual.

    4. His forthcoming trial has little to do with Swindon Town, but is coming up fast and could only damage the club's reputation, regardless of the outcome.

    5. All the premature talk of terminating his contract this week was totally incorrect, without him having a ''fair hearing''. SAM, hang your head in shame, you may well have cost Town the balance of Ranger's contract with your headlines all week. Perhaps that is why we had to keep him?

    6. Several posters have recently suggested we open Stratton Bank to youngsters at a special discount, to increase attendance figures. To watch the model footballer Ranger play perhaps? What a stupid idea!!

    7. Mr Power had gone up in a lot of people's opinions recently, including mine, but after playing Ranger today, Mr Power may clearly lack any sort of integrity? SHAME ON YOU MR POWER.
    See you are back after your recent pasting... you can't even quote yourself correctly... your views have absolutely no credibility here ..so save your time, no one is interested in your jaundiced views and observations.

    Cleuso, whilst not wishing to get into a slanging match with you, i wonder who made you spokesperson/moderat
    or on here so as to speak for everyone else? sure disagree if YOU wish but no one person on here has the right to tell another Town fan if they should have the right to post an opinion whether we agree with it or not JB is as entitled to post what, if and when he likes.You don`t come across as a stupid person so why do you even respond to JB`s posts? why not just ignore him if he irriatates you that much, barring that when you see a post from him why not just scroll down past said post and then you will not feel inclined to make silly statements like"no one wants to read your views" ETC,

    Great performance yesterday against a decent Posh team.

    As Den says above the way Ranger does the right thing with the ball every time is a definite talent, he makes the game look very easy. Good point on never being offside as well. I'm also impressed with the way he never reacts to hard tackles, you would think with his off field persona he would get red cards galore but never bats an eyelid. Cooper didn't sound convinced at the apology and promises to behave....said he'd heard it before.

    Kasim looked somewhere back to his best and a well taken goal. He said on interview he can make runs forward with Ranger playing as he knows he will get it back...

    And Branco well what a performance from him following a good 2nd half at Bradford. Early days but looking forward to a run of games for him.

    Agreed Den and Steve - I would like to underline the 'within reason of course' as the personal abuse and accusations have IMO been the root cause of this problem, that seem nothing to do with STFC or football even.

    JB does quite often add to the discussion, other times he totally destroys the thread.

    I believe Clueso recently only stood his ground against JB's bluster and personal abuse.
    I stupidly got dragged into it a while back - now like others I ignore the taunts if any come my direction again.

I just hope that at some point he realises what a talent he is , helps STFC this term then we try to help him move on again ( or stay if he wants to ) . Just want to add I think Pritchard is a bit off his game at the moment and Luango , just think what we could do to teams with them all firing . COYR

    Great win today by the sounds of it and Posh despite their current run are always going to be tough. I had not seen the team news when Ranger's name came up as openind scorer. As I could not make it today would be interested from someone there if the other players celebrated with Ranger - always a tell take sign if he was on his own. At the Coventry game I was thinking the same things to watch the others if he scored but he never did.

    Glad to have him playing but the club need to stick to an agreed way forward, he cannot carry on doing his own thing.
    If I remember correctly Town players showed him their pleasure when he scored. Before the game I was told that several players together told Coops that they were happy for Nile to play today. Apparently Nile had apologised to them for his recent failures to train with them. Whether Nile really has seen the error of his ways remains to be seen !

    The players mobbed Ranger when he scored and apparently the players as a group asked Lee Power to give Nile Ranger one more chance which he duly did and this came from Power himself on BBC Wilts. Certainly do not see any player issues what so ever with the big fella. At the end of the game Ranger went to all the Town players and Ward put his arm around him as they left the pitch. Power stated that they hushed all this up as they wanted to surprise Peterborough which they certainly did. The way Town set up with 3 at the back baffled the Posh and the fans but was probably done to thwart Nick Ajose's advice on how we would set up. The fact that Fods hardly made any saves is testimony to how we defended so well. Great to see a result ground out at last.

    Well what a game and, firstly, well done to the referee. He left hard fair tackles unpunished, tried to play advantage, let the game flow and used his assistants when they were needed.

    First half was cagey with neither side really dominant but fortunately we created the best opening and took it. Second half was mainly one-way, caused IMO by sitting too deep, but the eventual winner was a classic smash and grab. Brilliant shimmy, off the ball run (Ranger) and finish. Nervy last 10 but a fantastic result.

    Players to pick out for me.

    Branco, dodgy with virtually his first touch but didn't look back after. His recovery to intercept the player put through at 1-0 was superb.
    Ranger, premier league player that took two of their players to mark and still held the ball up.
    Kasim, looked back to early season form and scored a superb goal.

    Nathan T looked to be getting back to early season form. Dani G worked hard upfront and at the back in an unfamiliar role. Wardy barely missed a header and Hall played well in an unfamiliar position (he did look a bit lost when getting forward)

    Little doubting the commitment today I feel we just need to take that away and we could acheive what I didn't expect.

    Well done Town.

    As surprised as many others I guess when I saw Ranger named today but could this be a turning point in his career, court case excepted. If so, fair play to Mark and Lee for your patience. Too early to judge but if he can get his head down with Town for the next 6-12 months he has the ability to get back to the top. I wonder how much of the change is down to the age of the other Town players and not being amongst the bifg 'I am's. Could be good for Town and good for him but, if guilty, Nile who.
    If the jury isn't convinced beyond reasonable doubt that he's guilty, he'll be free to continue being a professional footballer. But he's never behaved like one yet. Will he ever start?
    Den,

    I appreciate your comments last night, but each of us have views on here that vary between casual, much stronger and very entrenched at the top end of the scale.

    In the case of Ranger, my views are as follows;

    1. WE should NOT have signed him the first place. BIG MISTAKE.

    2. He does not turn up on time, if indeed at all for training.

    3. He is not a team player, only a very selfish individual.

    4. His forthcoming trial has little to do with Swindon Town, but is coming up fast and could only damage the club's reputation, regardless of the outcome.

    5. All the premature talk of terminating his contract this week was totally incorrect, without him having a ''fair hearing''. SAM, hang your head in shame, you may well have cost Town the balance of Ranger's contract with your headlines all week. Perhaps that is why we had to keep him?

    6. Several posters have recently suggested we open Stratton Bank to youngsters at a special discount, to increase attendance figures. To watch the model footballer Ranger play perhaps? What a stupid idea!!

    7. Mr Power had gone up in a lot of people's opinions recently, including mine, but after playing Ranger today, Mr Power may clearly lack any sort of integrity? SHAME ON YOU MR POWER.
    See you are back after your recent pasting... you can't even quote yourself correctly... your views have absolutely no credibility here ..so save your time, no one is interested in your jaundiced views and observations.
    Cleuso, whilst not wishing to get into a slanging match with you, i wonder who made you spokesperson/moderat


    or on here so as to speak for everyone else? sure disagree if YOU wish but no one person on here has the right to tell another Town fan if they should have the right to post an opinion whether we agree with it or not JB is as entitled to post what, if and when he likes.You don`t come across as a stupid person so why do you even respond to JB`s posts? why not just ignore him if he irriatates you that much, barring that when you see a post from him why not just scroll down past said post and then you will not feel inclined to make silly statements like"no one wants to read your views" ETC,

    PS i have become embroiled in many a slanging match, disagreements and a couple of times nearly ended up meeting up and fighting with other posters where threats have been made on here over the years but, in the cold light of day i have to ask myself what good is getting stressed over things so trivial, none of us have to come on here but everyone has the right to.
    Very well said Steve. Sometimes we agree with each other, sometimes we don't. That's what makes this thing work so well. Like you, I defend JB's right to say what he wants (within reason of course).

    I just wish some people on here didn't go on so much and spoil the flow of the forum for others. Understandable that there some things that people feel they must say, disappointing that it takes so many words and ego-boosting to say them.

    I realise the point you are making Den. I just feel there is an irony that when one person says whatever they want, and just because they are being overly presumptive, somebody else says its wrong to come on here and say those things, thereby creating a circular argument. It's all a bit of a game of snap, as in who can trump who. We are all in effect monitors or moderators of each other.

    Steve Brentford ........

    I have no desire to use this forum for any thing more than a balanced debate on all things STFC.

    However there are some that spend all their time denigrating all things STFC and some that hand out personal abuse those who stand up to them and their totally negative opinions.

    I don't need to name them ..every one knows who they are..they can claim until they are blue in the face that they are Town fans. Do you really, really believe them ? Funny way to support the club you "follow"

    If individuals were more balanced with their opinions there would be no real challenge, but those that try to intimidate others deserve to be challenged in my opinion.

    I do not resort to name calling, others can do that but also I refuse to be beaten into submission by their bluster and rhetoric. Again everyone knows who glories in intimidation and also brags about previous "conquests" suggesting that it is habitual and seems to give them a sense of personal satisfacion.

    Hope you understand my position a bit more now..... Of course I cannot, or claim to speak, for everyone but everyone should decide for themselves if they want to appreciate those who are realistic in their observations or those with jaundiced opinions. I know which camp I am in and whose opinions I can relate to and value on this forum.

    Let's hope the forum has a constructive rather than destructive future.

    Well put Clueso, it does seem you have been the latest target of this individual for some reason. Whether the aim of this individual is to disrupt or destroy this forum I do not know.
    I have been dragged into this before, and by this post it could be argued am again, but also I have personally been offended by the name calling and accusations by this person.
    I offered a throwaway email address for this person to contact me away from this forum to actually find out what the problem is - not taken up.

    My own very personal theory is this person may have a drink problem or has a screw loose, because I 've noticed not a lot makes sense after about 10.00 pm, even to the others who try and steer this person in the right direction.

    Hello Chish, A neighbour told me this morning about this thread and JB's continued antics. Some time ago JB had a dialogue I think with Den, and said in not so many words he would get the board shut down to get rid of me, you and others who he claims were/are all one of the same person.

    That is what you are up against, somebody with a desire to close down the board. I know of several good honest supporters from where I sat in the DR who had complained to The Adver many times about JB. Their mails and letters all went unanswered. Read into that what you will.

    Very glad to see the team doing so well and totally applaud Saturdays performance, just a big shame things continue to get ruined here. Best of luck, you are going to need it dealing with Bantling Boy.

    Right then, thats it. Gone.

    Hi Wiz - hope your recovery is going well.

    I'm not sure what JB's problem is, but it certainly does seem to smell a bit of a wind up merchant on a mission of trying to destroy or spoil the credibility of this site.

    Oh well it takes all sorts - I try and ignore his taunts, bluster and insults and treat them with the contempt they deserve.

    We all have our thoughts, moans and groans etc.' but there is a civil way they can be put over without trying to purposely offend people.

    Anyway Good Luck Wiz.
