    If they give us the footage of Connor Jennings' goal last August and take down that photo on their website of their 12 fans celebrating the worst result in our history, I am sure we will be happy to play the match in June.

    Seriously, if we win the Trophy quarter final against Barrow, the only free week we will have left is the last week in April, so you can see why we wanted to rearrange quickly. I don't buy the whole 'part time' argument either, as they must have rearranged at short notice loads of times for cup matches.

    Their argument is that cup replays have predefined dates, and therefore it is easier to plan for. However, if they try and assert that their part-time players pre-book holiday at their workplaces on all potential cup replay dates, I'd call "bullshit".

    Boreham Wood sign a lot of full time players. What part time jobs do people like Jai Reason and Angelo Balanta have?

    Surely their work know they are part time footballers and might need to take some time off now and again?

    BorehamWood also managed to get enough players together to comfortably beat Sutton in an FA Trophy replay 4 days after the first game, though it was at home. If it was some other part time side, would have more sympathy, particularly as the date has been brought forward, but the way they conduct themselves dispels that.

    Suppose the end of April is earmarked for the rescheduled Barrow trip then?

    Fuck Boreham Wood. Just another shithouse with small club syndrome, believing everybody should love and respect them. File Whitehawk and Concord in the same bracket.

    Yeah, I can half see where BW are coming from to a very small point but it's just part and parcel of football.

    I thought if Clubs can't agree a date then the league just re-arrange it for the first available Tuesday anyway, which is what they've done.

    There just seems to be a few bits and pieces that make you dislike them as a Club, and this doesn't help.

    I think Danny forgot he said this on the official website

    Hunter went on “Going to a day time training programme three days a week, is tantamount to turning Meadow Park and Boreham Wood into a full time football club for the first time in our history.. There are going to be the obvious additional costs and expenses to take into account, from catering and catering staff, to additional coaches, playing personnel, cleaners, kit managers and of course the very important medical staff”..

    “I now need to go away, revamp the budget in the correct way and see how best to move the club forward. I need to see how much more I can give the first team budget personally and I need to find a way for the club to move forward commercially to increase our budget across the board”..

    “It will simply not be good enough for us to become a full time club, without having the necessary infra structure all in place. This is not a game we’re playing where we can afford to get it wrong. We must remember at present we are still not good enough on the park as is evident by our league position. As such we still need to bring in a few experienced but more importantly, hungry players into this group to improve us”..

    “We will now see if the club I’ve re built these last 17 seasons and these players, will stand up to the rigours of being full time or if we’ll fall flat on our faces. To succeed we must all work harder than ever before but things must be and will be done properly from top to bottom”..

    I particularly enjoy that it comes with a dance move.

    James Constable has messed up his chance of a move to Tranmere by doing that terrible video.

    Pretty sure this was Ian Allinson's official reason for stepping down - wasn't available for full time training.

    And seems he's mostly a Blackburn fan Think the lad has issues from the couple I've watched. Football as a sort of care in the community.

    Yeah, it's clear he's impaired so I didn't want to delve further than two similar vids. Absolutely fascinating combination of teams to support Blackburn and Eastleigh. I guess that Bolton Cup draw was serious business for him.

    That Andrew Evans guy has a myriad of issues; I think they're all in his Facebook bio he was a Liverpool fan for a week around New Years; he's an embarrassment.
