It gets on my wick when people start trying to divide fans according to their, for want of a better word, 'worthiness' - not everyone can go to every game, be it friendlies or otherwise but we're all on the same side, god knows there's few enough of us without making out that some aren't as good a supporter as another!
AccyMad, I couldn't agree more!
This all goes back to a response to my thoughts on the Huddersfield game from a so-called Stanley 'supporter' who shall remain nameless (post #33), who decided to take one element of my post - about the poor attendance; & make what I felt was a ludicrous & flippant remark.
I'm not trying to divide fans, just responding to the apparent apathy evident on some of the posts regarding whether its worth attending friendlies.
I'm old enough to remember the 'can't be bothered' apathy that caused the downfall of Stanley in 1962 & it dismays me to see it rearing it's head on this forum.
What saddens me more, are the number of contributors who have rushed to defend the 'stay-away fans' & criticise one who is actually supporting the club by bothering to attend these friendlies.

Mate, don't take it so personally, comments I made in response to your offerings were merely a counter opinion & not meant as criticism. As I've repeatedly stated, supporters come in all shapes & sizes & the same goes for their options to & how they support.

Tell you what, we (me & the better half) should be over Sept-Oct so we'll be looking to take in a game or several, if you get yourself down to the "Greyhound" on match day were we meet up with the other "Owd Contemptibles" (they know who they are ), I'll get you a pint & we can have a natter ..... sound fair?

After all, as one ex tory PM & Scuzzbag (although I'm pretty sure he wasn't a Stanleyite) once said "We're all in this together!" KTF Bro, KTF!

Re: Huddersfield match thread

Lord S - I'm sure the club will value my support at one of those cold winter midweek must win away matches where there's about 100 of us Can Be Bothereds vociferously shouting the team on - more than a polite pre-season friendly.
Surely a true supporter has the instinct to know where his limited time and effort best serve the club and take appropriate action?

So basically what your saying is that the people that don't got to midweek away games can't be bothered?

I'll tell you what, you've got some brass neck. You've deserted the club for the most spurious of reasons and you won't be going to any matches, midweek, weekend, home, away, friendly, league, cup. Yet, you're all over this forum like a rash, pontificating about matches you haven't seen and now having the sheer gall to air your thoughts on the subject of support!

Why don't you do us all a favour and go and post your views on the forum of the club you've "chosen" to support next season?

Just because I've chosen not to attend games does not mean I will not still be following the club, I would never stop supporting Stanley I just would not attend games

You are not a supporter, you have willfully withdrawn your support for a ridiculous reason, which is why nobody else, to my knowledge, has joined your boycott. You don't attend matches (even though you're near enough to do so), you don't buy merchandise - what sort of support is that?

a supporter is a person who attends games. a follower is someone who says looks for the result, checks signings etc. but never sets foot in the place. unfortunetly he,s not on his own in the area but they don,t post on supporters messageboards.

By any chance are Third Lanark and New Brighton some of the other options you have for watching footie?

God save Accrington Stanley with 'supporters' like you.

76 miles is hardly close enough to attend matches

I know supporters who travel that distance and further, even if they don't make it to every single match. But, let's face it, this is just a red herring. You have been attending because you told us that you wouldn't be returning while Andy Holt is in charge.

that,s the problem i imagine there,s plenty like him and not just at stanley. they say they support a certain lower division club but would need directions to the ground. rather stay on the sumfy armchairs watching the plastic premier league.
