Being at last night's game perfectly captured my feelings about the past 3 or so years.

I was immensely proud to be part of a club which can take 800+ fans to a midweek League 2 fixture. Immensely relieved that I don't support a club like Forest Green Rovers. Immensely impressed that our players can play high energy passing football for 90 minutes. And immensely frustrated that we didn't get a better result.

Welcome to the immensely frustrating club with, according to the learned Derek "I can't count either" Adams, has "no ambition".
Our club was and still is ambitious to keep developing players via the academy and play them - got a feeling that after last night MT's phone will be red hot with enquiries re Diabate, Collins, Kite, MJ & Key.
Well done the academy & UTC

They were chanting about bacon? Throw the book at them.

I'm guessing the misogynistic chanting referred to was the 'get your ***s out for the lads' chant . This was aimed at the large guy with minimal clothing on, I believe.

I wasn't there last night but have heard the JMT chants before. They are unnecersery and somewhat embarrassing. As for the rest of it (assuming budegrecian is correct) have the narrow minded Village idiots not got a sense of humour.

Their forum suggests it was a chant about chlamydia aimed at a female

We used to sing it to Athena. As God is my witness I swear, if she had I'd have died a happy man there and then. Alas Athena was a no show goddess but sometimes in my dreams.....😇
