    And until recently when some found it necessary to repeat the same stuff over and over again ad infinitum!

    I think Bru would lose a lot of appeal if we all had to agree with each other.

    Agreed NI- ‘you won’t be there’ the most tedious IMO

    Not much that is certain with the Iron just now but I think we can rely on that Cass.

    It’s only inevitable that the site will be negative after years of crumbling results and finances under Swann bringing us to the depths of the second tier of non-league, followed by the drama and uncertain nature of Hilton.

    For what it’s worth, I can see why this is a drain, but on the positive side, look at the nature of the discussion here. There is a lot more thoughtful discussion than that Facebook group, it’s less censorious, and there’s more respect for other opinions in general.

    I realise this last week has been high octane, but I will do my part in apologising for letting my anger at Hilton show maybe a bit too much. I realise there’s no point now and just hope the whole situation gets sorted, but I still fear the worst.

    I would just like to say that there is a core of good posters, who make interesting points from all angles, here. Cassidy’s Tash, JustIron, DeereyMe, Iron-Awe, Ironawe, Les, Cliff Byrne’s Right Peg, MK Iron, IronIronIron, TheJuryeffsOut, 64, MistertonMick, NI, ApatheticApologists, Interested Bystander*, ironfromafar etc. No particular order, and I have probably missed some (so don’t feel offended if missed out), but all have contributed with interesting points over the years and still do. And, of course, SST for keeping this site going.

    *I know some may disagree, but I value openness and honesty, so his work has been valuable, even if repetitive for some.

    I have said that my persona in real life differs from here somewhat, but don’t push your luck or I’ll report you for swearing. :-D

    I class myself as a newbie on here ..that was until checked and its been nearly 2 years since i joined … doesnt time fly when your having fun !!

    In all seriousness Bru remains an excellent ouTlet for me to interact with like wise Scunny fans , its difficult to explain how much i miss attending home and away like i used to prior to emigrating, i was planning on returning home more often but a few life changing events and covid scuppered those plans .. thankfully things are changing which will mean more regular trips back henceforth of course im hoping the town still have a club to support despite things appearing so bleak off the pitch at the moment.

    FWIW .. IMO a pretty dam fine bunch on Bru and thanks to the guys who keep it going who ever you are.

    Suddenly the person who has led the club into the waste lands seemingly has some fans.
