Thanks for the welcomes.

Ipswich, yeah I do. Since Ronnie Moore came in he's turned us around. I have high hopes. Well, I have to don't I??

Dark Sith, I used to live in South Normanton. Is it still a shit hole??

A little bit better than yours. For what it's worth you lot are looking likely to stay up which would be a remarkable achievement.

It'll be the escape of the century so far. Northampton was impressive and we're still a point behind their performance but York, Cheltenham and Tranmere are stuttering and we've got a bit of momentum. We need to keep that going.

By the way, thanks for Bingham earlier on. I dunno why he's not getting a game for you.

We are playing with 1 up front. He's been effective coming off the bench, Think the loan has helped him as he has looked much better since coming back here. He's in good form now though and the fans are starting to call for him to start. Think we will go 442 against York so he might get a game but with Oliver and Kee ahead of him in the pecking order who knows.

How much will you miss Junior Brown (?) after he got a straight red? He looked well handy to me.

He's been poor lately. He looked great when we had him on loan but not been anywhere near that form. I do like him though. On the red card, I see alot of your fans think he was trying to kick your lads head off. I've looked at it a few times and Brown's eyes were always on the ball, There was no intent IMO but it was 110% a red card.

Our lad, Brad Walker said that if he hadn't gone for it, he'd have got slaughtered by his team mates. Brad is 6' 3". Your lad looked to be about 5'6". It was a fifty/fifty challenge but Brown did have his foot up and it looked ugly. Walker was marked across his nose and forehead. I don't think the ref had an option there.

Yeah, up in Buxton, and that area but coming from the cosmopolitan miasma that is Hartlepool, I found it rather sleepy.

And I'm not a bloody duck.

Loads of us Poolies now. We've gone from zero to maybe having one of the most (?) number of fans on here in little over 48 hours :bg:

As many as you give us.... what's the maximum? Last time I was there that big stand was just a large terrace.... If you didnt have season ticket holders in there I reckon we would fill it ...

Presume you'd get the 2 end blocks of the big stand (east stand), around 2000 capacity. Don't think we open up the terrace behind the goal anymore, so probably just 1800-2200.

Doubt you'd fill the entire East Stand, probably about 6000 capacity.

In order:

Hi Mr Saddler, I haven't dropped in on your board for a good while. Is Saigon still kicking around the crazy bastard??

Mr Dark Sith, no. I got married in Derbyshire first time round and lived (if you can call it that) in Normo. If Britiain ever needs an enema they'll put it in Normo. After that, I later worked in Staveley, first for BOC and second for Shell and I found the people really condescending and parochial.

As Mr Glass knows I live in China. Have done for 8 years now, down in the tropics. Club football is OK here, the national team are crap. Unfortunately the nearest footy is played 500km from where I live which is too far to take in the odd match.

Mr Walkley, Matlock is nice for a day out but I wouldn't want to live there.

You still manage to see Pools more than a few in the town... I'm sure other clubs at our level have similar situations, but if you see out train station on a home matchday, at lunchtime it is Chocca block full of Newcastle/Sunderland fans all in thier tops making a mass exodus, makes my blood boil!!
