  • Pah! Club statement to fans:- sorry for the awful dross served up for the last few years, the continual school boy business errors of successive boards, and the general atmosphere of incompetence, missed opportunities, repeated shooting of self in the foot and the absolute p*ss take of some of the current crop of “players”. Go on Jim, exact the revolution, no matter how bloody it is and no matter how low we have to sink – give us back our pride! Despite all this, I’ll be there for Barrow (H). Come on (True) County!

  • When are we going to get a statement regarding the club? It’s about time that we the fans heard something that will re-lite our season. I am with you cropped, the current statement tells us nothing what we need and want to hear. As normal with this club they say nothing so the rumours start. Perhaps all the rumours are true and we are going under!!!!! 2 More players have left the club, so only a few more to go before we shut up shop. If you are the last one away when we play Barrow could you please turn the electric switch off. and close all the doors. There is NO light at the end of the tunnel.

  • Surprised we have electricity to turn off because as we are constantly reminded we don’t a pot to p*ss in’ anyway hope you all had a good Christmas and I’m with you cropped and MA (is no news good news) in our case NO, 3 points against Barrow????? I can dream.

  • A couple of games recently home and away objects have been thrown on to the pitch. I like everyone else is frustrated and angry about what is or is not happening. However throwing things on to the pitch is going to make things worse if we have to pay fines, money which would be better spent strengthening the team. Unfortunately the “richard craniums” thowing things dont see this.
