Re: Opposition fans back from the game

An eye-witness told me recently that a selection of names (generated by supporters through a local paper appeal) was put before Charlie Hurley (of all people) in 1976 and he thought The Royals would be a good idea - and no more thought or consultation went into it than that, sadly. The Lions was app...

Yes they were thinking about it, did not know how to contact the Chinese. I suggested they speak to sir john he would know That's a fair summary. Delboy is so far the only supporter to write to us in this vein. Understand where he's coming from. The road to where he wants to get is paved with obsta...

Many excellent posts in this thread, and some really good, honest thoughts. Would be great if the club came in here and read it (do they?). Suteki made a good point, what does STAR think of all this? How can things be turned around? How long have you got? Yes, many sad and heartfelt sentiments in t...

STAR Base not open Tues 28 Aug but

… it will be open, obviously, for the League Cup tie on Weds 29th.

As a general rule of thumb STAR Base is open on Tuesday nights 7.30-9pm except when there is a first team game on - for travel bookings and memberships.

Re: Berks and Bucks Senior Cup 2018/19

When Adkins was manager we had apparently entered but it was news to him. The B&B automatically put us in the draw.

Doesn't explain why Wycombe not even included.

Cube, don't get your hopes up of a fourth star to go the shirts!

Actually we have plans to change that in terms of giving quick and brief summaries of the Fans Forums this season.

Without destroying the magic of being there, of course.

Once. The thing then said you can’t post soon after your last post (on other thread) which I have never seen before so I pressed the button again and hey illogically it appeared twice.

Anyroad thanks for some feedback!

Re: Alternative to STAR?

STAR's opinion on who should manage the club is probably not of any more value than any other reasonable and well-informed supporter.

Re: Greyhound parking

The Speedway (aka Greyhound) car park (Go Racers!) will be open for use from the start of the season. There is the possibility that by the end of the season it will be being 'developed' and this is the reason the club cannot sell season passes for it.

Rest assured, there are rules and regs galore, aims and objectives on our website, plus audited accounts and an annual report to the members and some financial watchdog. Whereas with an unregulated alternative to STAR there'd be the danger of little gold Uri statues springing up all over the place ....
