Oxford City leaving all the gates open two hours before kick off. A group of us had a wander all the way onto the pitch before being escorted out and being told to wait behind a white line for 8 minutes before they could legally allow us in... two lads hid in the stand and got in free of charge.

Defo one of the lighter sides to tinpottery. A few years ago Guiseley kept their away gate completely open so they could stick a van and trailer there instead for the food. All we had to do is look to make sure nobody was looking and walk over the towbar to get in for free. Joke's on them though, we lost.

Concord Rangers’ official Twitter account (inb4 their club as a whole).
Who's tinpot here? Wealdstone for their players and staff not having the capability of putting rubbish in a bin?

Nothing wrong with having decent manners and respecting your opposition to keep a changing room clean.

Regardless of the fact Wealdstone should have cleared the dressing room, why post it on an official twitter account to try and show off? So weird.

The guy who runs that is an absolute melt. Tweeting after we played there: “Wow. Attendance of 500 today - shows what potential support there is here at Concord”. It was 150-200 above their average and we brought 150-200.

Celebrated their last minute equaliser as if they had won the league as well with their whole bench running on to the pitch.

Oh and their ground stinks of shit as well.

It’s good to see some things never change and one of those is the strange attitude of Concord Rangers. The first season we were in the same division as them (2010/11) they cried on various social media forums that we didn’t offer their players hot food after a match. Strange club with a chip on its shoulder.

Couldn’t they just have eaten that instead then?

They were upset with us for the same reason after we beat them in the FA Cup in13/14. Sandwichgate we called it.

Cheap point scoring which just reeked of sour grapes after being beat. It's all dusted down now since our manager has apologised but you'd have thought by some of the reactions on Twitter that the club had started World War III.

BREAKING: Vorskla Poltava say club cannot guarantee they will be able to play against @Arsenal in the @EuropaLeague tomorrow after venue was moved to Kiev.
That's not really tinpot is it? Ukraine is obviously in a state of political and security turmoil and current conditions are hardly normal.
There have been other examples of Ukrainian clubs having to play their European matches far away from their home ground, such as Shakhtar Donetsk playing their Champions League matches in Lviv but that was planned further in advance than 2 days.

Agreed. DSL, I'm disappointed in you ;)

I don't expect them to say well we may or we may not be able to fulfil the fixture, so we'll see come KO time. They obviously mean we can't get there.
