Definitely tinpot that. Pretty sure at least two of those three have been to every single match this season though, so probably can't claim this means they care more about Scunny.
Yeah the one on the left is Mariner Hodo and has vlogged every single game home and away this season.

Yep him, his dad and the snack review lad have put in some serious miles this season to watch us finish 21st.

Our media team (well, one work experience kid) proudly announcing that we’ve sold 5,000 tickets for the home leg against Crawley is pretty tinpot.

In fairness, that’s just a day of general sale, and it’ll be (baring a catastrophe first leg) about double that come next Thursday, but going all in on reaching 5,000 is embarrassing.
Though it now looks like we’ve sold the most out of the teams in the play offs? Incredible how tinpot this entire league is, really. Ourselves included in that.

Are they even our rivals anymore ?
I can't see us playing them for a long long time , massive budget cuts this summer and rumours of them going to a hybrid model . That Swann and then Dodgy Dave bloke really has fu*ked their club and as funny it is to see them struggling so badly it leaves us without a real realistic rival to play anytime soon unless we get a magic promotion somehow .

Not sure what you are basing that on. Ours only went on sale to STH’s yesterday and the feeling is they won’t make general sale

We won’t be seeing you lot for a long time, however a lot of your fans thought the same in D1/D3 days.
I was more pissed off Donny looked like going down then they did Donny things and spent their way to the play offs.

27 years and counting since we played our rival in a meaningful game.

It's shit in a way, and explains why so many of our younger fanbase latched onto the FGR rivalry.

Yeah I did chip in when it looked like the club might go as quite a few others our end did .

It might be a laugh when your rival is doing badly but no one (or at least very few) wants to see the club not exist ; 8k for that play-off game shows you have enough people that care . It will be interesting to see how Andy Butler does as the manager .

It was quite funny to see Chester City go. Nice talking point with their fans.

We’ve played them loads over the years. I’m guessing I’m older than Bottega so he probably sees Hull as a derby but that only lasted a couple of seasons.

Donny - Scunny has always been a nasty game.

How bad's the rain been in the immediate vicinity?
Really bad and now thunderstorms coming. I'm the other side of town so I haven't bothered to see the pitch but my garden is a quagmire.

I dont knowvwhy we didn't put covers on as it was forecast...there's always a chance we got rid of them...they've never helped us get a game on.

The covers not being on is the main question we have. The rain has been forecast for ages, unexpected amount aside for arguably the biggest game in your league history, that and a lack of an official announcement of any form of pitch inspection for the 2 hours between the ref being aware of an issue and the announcement just reeks of incompetence.

Not quite true Dippy. The ref was called in at 9.30. There's a twitter interview with him.

I dont know why the didn't announce a pitch inspection though.

The ref literally said that he was called in at 9:15 Casey, the game was called off at 11:15. That’s 2 hours.

Crawley need chucked out of the league for this utter tinpottedness and it's not like they would be missed either.

Or a victory should be given to MK Dons.

It's not Crawley's fault that there's a month's worth of rain fell in the space of 2 hours. Most clubs at this level or league one would be off with that amount of rain fall. If anybody needs chucking out the football league it should be mk Dons they are the ones that stole another clubs place in the football league and all there history.

Don't care about Hull or Donny particularly, Hull we've rarely played in my lifetime. We played Donny a lot but they're a Yorkshire club who are nothing more than just close to us

Grimsby are our only real rivals
