WUP PREMONITIONS 17/18 RESULTS! Apologies for the late posting of results, but congratulations to Jim Hampshire who got 18th Place and 53 points bang on the nose. Bragging rights are yours :) Special participation trophies to: Mark Leadon, Winchester, Ray, Streatham, who got 18th place right and within one point. A pat on the head to Seoul Womble, Old Warwick, Arne the Viking for getting within 2 points. Fist bumps to Rover T, Graham T and Jester for getting pretty damn close but no cigar in a completely fucked up season. Thanks to everyone for playing!

NB Just about everyone fucked up leading goalscorer. No, Cody turned out not to be a goal machine. And Appiah was confirmed to be a sick note.
Zendon-I agree, losing at Ash and Wallingford was as bad if not worse than the Dell, it was my club still

A agree - bring back Digy, in the end he was right. Wags doesn't know me but I've tasted his honey on more than one occassion.

Shergy - I am with you re WFC. If was a large part of many lives and losing it was a huge blow. It was like losing your bearings. The only difference was I embraced AFC totally from the off. It replaced it. Was as devastated by the 3-0 loss away at Wallingford as I was down at the Dell.

Kyle, Agreed. When I suffered from depression it was a combination of 'things'......a messy divorce, a lot of stress at work and (I am not joking here) the loss of WFC. I am quite serious.....around 2002 I was unhappily married, unhappy at at work and my only release was WFC. When I lost that in 2002 AFC in the first few years was in no way an adequate replacement for WFC. It was only when we climbed out of what I call the 'Mickey Mouse' leagues (CCL and Ryman) and into the Conference South/Conference that I was as much 'into' AFC as I was WFC. That's why I claim that noone hates Franchise more than me......maybe equally but not more!

The impact on players of websites or comments on here is likely to be minimal, especially as they are daft to come and read it anyway. I would hope that people would feel guilty afterwards even if they didn't know the full circumstances and it is an added cause of drama here too, so best avoided.

best to keep off their social media too, although Wilson was a prat the situation escalated because people had a go at him on social media
lurks - Is that a call to arms?

Gets coat and leaves... ;o)
Clarke suffered two family bereavements very close together which is more significant than a website that was up for a day or two. In any case its usually a combination of various things.

I think the first clue re Clarke was the oddity of how he left. But yes none of us knew. Wilson is a slightly different situation because he was effectively sacked by us for his behaviour. If you want a view of the difference fans can make see the SU views of Long, especially some of the people on their own forum having a go at the fans for their behaviour, then look at who he was with us and ask what the difference was. Probably something all our fans could do with looking at to consider the impact of behaviour. One thing to say sorry but you were a bit shite today compared to maybe jumping on someone’s case endlessly.

Oddly here we seem as much as anything to have people getting on Ardley’s case for it. Which by the way he seems happier for people to do than getting at the players.
I doubt that anything posted on here had much effect on Clarke's situation. If he was getting abuse from behind the goal after his gaffes then that wouldn't have helped. However, I expect the biggest influence from our club would have been the attitude of fellow players and management during the time. A dressing room can be a harsh place if a player is not perceived to be pulling his weight and the likes of Fuller and Charles (for example) may not have taken kindly to seeing their win and clean sheet bonuses disappearing. If he felt uncomfortable coming in to work every day then it would have been almost impossible to perform well during matches.

The problem that when a keeper makes a mistake, it inevitably ends up as a goal conceded, remember Pullen? Another that turned bad, wasnt a bad keeper, then the errors crept in, and not forget ben wilson and his tweet. What wags did was over the top, but i think most of us are guilty of being ott at some point. The problem about being a professional sportsperson is you are on public display, people react to what they see, and none of is were aware of clarke's situation, i think we would have all reacted differently if we knew, but illnesses such as depression are very difficult to pubically admit

I'd like to disassociate myself from Kentish Don's comment at 13:12. Wagner certainly did not state what I was thinking at the time.

I thought KD was better than that, but apparently anything goes if someone wants to get a reaction...
Have the club actually put the ticket prices on the OS for Fleetwood on 4/8. ?

In a way kyle is right, it is all long gone. People who know and liked Wags told him they thought he was wrong at the time. I'd always be happy to see him posting on here or at KM or NPL.

SW.......good point. As I said in an earlier post I have suffered from depression but it took me a long time to be able to talk about it. There used to be a big stigma attached to it........there still is to a degree but less so than previously
