    Sounds like a good performance at Bradford. A “good team” according to Sky, or words to that effect. It’s interesting how the team seems to do better away from home.

    Maybe Hurst took our comments on board, made them deal with us, instead of running scared.

    We have more points at home (17) than away (15) I’m afraid.

    All that shows Ferrite is how poor the home form really is particularly of late. It’s not that long ago the away form was a real concern, just as we started addressing that the home form slumped. A decent home form this season would have seen us comfortable promotion contenders along with our away results so far.

    Fair points Iron-Awe, although it also shows that Bucks rarely lets facts cloud his judgements.

    That depends on how you define the ‘facts’, Ferrite. If we’re talking about points won then you’d obviously be right, providing you’re talking about the whole season to date of course. At the same time, given a club is always expected to do better at home than away having just two more points at home would definitely support the argument that we do better away. Likewise if you look at the most recent games played.

    Not that you’d ever let facts cloud your judgement, either.

    I’m sure you’ll be able to back up that assertion….

    Would you also like to argue that up is down and left is right?

    He’s totally away with the fairies on the other side. Why should this side be any different?

    Bradford fans were singing those first three words on Saturday too Buck’s, didn’t do them any good either because we were playing better then them. DM’s posts have more flair and are not repetitive like yours, you have such a lot in common with Bradford last Saturday.

    You mean like when you called me a liar earlier in this thread? Good point.

    Anyway, have you thought of anymore improvements over the last 7-or-8 years? I seem to have come up with more than you have and you’re one of the current owner’s biggest advocates.

    Nope it’s people having a different opinion to you, why is that so difficult for you to comprehend?

    I can’t believe that I mean we all know how much Bucks hates people being accused of lying !?! I very much doubt our Bucks would have double standards would he?

    More double posting Pat, is it a permanent affliction or just a passing phase? Hang on! Posting Pat! Does that sound like the start of a song to a favourite kids show from yesteryear?
