I agree - but it IS an advert whether we like it or not, and whether it was intended to be or not. This is probably all that the non-committed will ever see of the business that is Accrington Stanley Football Club. I think there is a "big fuss" because our opinions differ about whether what has been seen will be good for the business that is Accrington Stanley Football Club.

Re: Accrington Stanley - Exactly

Why would football fans worry about "business"....... Surely that s Eric & the boards business or are even we, as grass roots fans, getting embroiled in more board room talk than football talk...... FC NOT PLC!!!!!!

How often do we read about "lack of resources", "shoestring budget" etc in these posts? Better business = better resources = ability to attract better players = better football.

I do get a bit carried away at times JT !...as you will have noticed!...and I do take your point about our support for the Reds being a thing of passion !, which is an element within us all that will keep us going to the FES whatever happens!
As to'conforming to the stereotype'....well perhaps you'll concede that some do and others don't !....or am I talking in riddles again??....Oh eck !, I'll shut up !

Respect and Regards across the miles!.

Eric was probably filmed for hours and hours which was edited down to minutes. If all the swearing and cursing had been edited out it would probably have been a boring documentary. Don't you think that Granada showed the swearing and cursing on purpose to make it more entertaining. If the programme hadn't showed Eric swearing and cursing nobody would be discussing the programme now and probably saying that it was a waste of time. I don't think it will put anybody off going to FES to watch Stanley, it's just that the Accrington public can't be bothered to go.

Definition of documentary - emphasizing or expressing things as perceived without distortion of personal feelings or insertion of fictional matter

A non-fiction motion picture film having a theme or viewpoint but drawing its material from actual events and using editing and sound to enhance the theme

Ta daaaaa!

Revived Red, this might be all that the 'committed' see about the business of Accrington Stanley Football club also. I would consider myself committed all be it at a distance, but for those lucky souls that get to go week in week out, still wouldnt get to see what was shown in that episode unless its a prize for a competition etc. Even then you wouldnt be allowed into lets say the prematch meeting with John and Eric - but the cameras were....

Sorry, Jimbo. Not sure I agree with that. The "committed" probably see the website, the messageboard, the match programme, and maybe a few games too.

Anyway, it's been good to read the varied opinions. That's what this messageboard is all about.

Putting the swearing aside a bloody dingle at work is taking great pleasure in singing the old song about "loooking in dustbins for something to eat", nice one Eric.

Nope; certainly no capitulation! Merely a temporary pause. I was starting to feel that the exchange of thoughts was reaching stalemate.
