      The Autumn Supporter Giveaway!       Welcome to the very first of the seasonal BCF supporter giveaways! This month also marks one year since I took on the forum, so I want to say an extra huge thank you to all of you for keeping this place going. I have a little bit more to say about that later but, for now, let's get to the giveaway!     The Autumn Giveaway winner will be getting two Penguin Little Black Classics, The Tell-Tale Heart by Edgar Allan Poe and To Be Read At Dusk by Charles Dickens. Both of these little books contain three atmospheric short stories, perfect for autumnal evenings. The winner will also get Mary Shelley tea (a lavender and vanilla black tea) from Rosie Lea Tea's Literary Tea Collection (https://www.rosieleatea.co.uk/collections/literary-tea-collection) and a chocolate skull, to really get that spooky atmosphere .   and...   A special treat for a special month. The winner will choose one of the following recent paperback releases from the independent bookshop Big Green Bookshop:       The Wych Elm by Tana French A House of Ghosts by W.C. Ryan Melmoth by Sarah Perry The Familiars by Stacey Halls  The Dark Descent of Elizabeth Frankenstein by Kiersten White   The winner will be chosen via the usual random selection process in one week. Patreon supporters are entered automatically.

It's been a lot of fun to put together. Other chocolate skulls may have been harmed during the selection process…

Sorry guys... other thread was getting too long.

 

Not much to report here in the frozen North. Match postponed well before the weekend arrived. Am looking forward to seeing what Mr Ferguson jnr will be doing for our team in the transfer window. A striker that can score would be nice :)

I can't believe the Liverpool match got cancelled - Aberdeen played and I'm willing to bet the weather was worse up here - LOL!

Andy reckons he/they won't get a game until mid February at this rate! Snow, icy and then when that is gone the problems with waterlogged pitches....:)

Yes, but will they go bankrupt before the next round?

 

Yeah that is a possibility. I do worry what the tax man will say in Feb too. Where has the money gone?!

Do you think Man U should make some activity in the market before it closes? We have done some great deals in January before.

Oh yeah i definitely agree, there is very little soul or attachment in modern day club ownership. It is a ridiculous situation for the club to be in that insane amount of debt. People are saying that Ferguson simply didn't see value in the market, which i can understand, Valencia is a great winger and Owen a handy back up to have for the forwards. I guess the rest of the team simply didn't step up, which you'd expect them to do, playing for one of the best clubs in the world. There's no point wasting

Yes, i think people need to see that football, like life, has cycles, and all those laughing at Liverpool over the years without appreciating the glory their own club is currently living in, can come to an end so quickly.

Like, you look at how ridiculous that amount of

Look at what happened to Leeds too, it's so easy to fall into that wayside. That's why they need someone who actually knows what they are doing running the club. They don't have to care too much, i mean who honestly does in modern day business? But you know, someone who will keep the club at the top of it's game as a business, which will in turn keep the football side running smoothly. These Glazers seems so out of touch sometimes.
