I know that some Woking followers are reading this forum...well read this then: what an arrogant bunch of fans you are. Get used to it...we are in the same division as you! And we remember you from the Isthmian League Division 2 south when you were pretty poor, same as you were last season it seems

Crowds win nothing.

I’m not really sure what point this twat is trying to make. We played them the last time we were in NLS and we’re playing them next season in the NLS. In between times we’ve gone up and now down again and they’ve gone down and gone up again, get over it matey ....

To be fair, if we'd just lost the playoff final on penalties, and thought a team with more than double our average gate and a history of being in the league above wanted our manager, we'd be pretty touchy too.

However, Lord Elpus would know if he'd been reading this forum for the last four months that we're not arrogant. There's a good proportion of fans on this forum who've been shitting on this team since January.

As far as I’m aware Woking didn’t approach any managers, they approached us, so if they lose their manager to us it’s because he applied for the job and was successful.

I’m not going to bother the Mods on ConfSouthBoard (apologies MrO, I’m staying) but really, it’s all giggles innit?
The “We’ll be up by Halloween/Bonfire Night/Boxing Day/Pancake Day” as applicable song is all part and parcel of the billy big bollocks braggadocio nonsense that goes with being a fan of (Clarkson Voice) The Greatest Team...in The World, innit?

We’ll boss the Publeague like DrShipman with a bunch of old ladies.

I don’t care if the rest of the league don’t like it, it’s all about whether our team turns up this time and we get the fu*k out of the division asap (in the right direction this time).

The Chair said we’d have a competitive budget, so I can see no excuses this time around. After our recent travails nobody’s going to hire a Richard Hill/Graham Baker equivalent surely? All the more reason to believe we’ll have the division sewn up before a ball is kicked :-)

Agreed. We might be in the same division but we're still a bigger club with potential in that may not be realised at Hampton.

Same way as there were many bigger clubs than us during our stay in the National

Hampton should be ecstatic at getting "their" 2 Cup Finals again next season .......and that goes for the rest for the division.

We weren't poor in Division 2 South. Two seasons there, finished 3rd and 1st

The bloke from Hampton’s got a pretty piss poor memory too, seeing as we never played them in the two seasons we were down in Div2 South.

We were doubled by Hampton in BFGs first season.
Then they were a league above us for two years.
But they haven't beaten us for 30 years now.
