Ivo Graham's that squinty comedian is he? Seen him on telly a few times.

Best thing on that is the fact that Benda has very clearly gotten involved in the design of his sponsor seeing as how it's not quite in the top right corner so he can be 'saving it'.
Hate him even more now!!

A welcome return to form for this 5 year old thread. This sort of stuff is what the thread is for. Look back at the early days of it and you'll see what I mean.

Far too much 'hilarious' and completely deliberate club Twitter BANTER on here these days.

It is a work of art but sadly some of the old links are now broken and some photos do not show.
Yeah I was just looking back now too, there's one by SoC on the second page where both links are broken, it has a lot of likes and anything from SoC is liable to be a belter but I've no idea what was so funny any more.

Can't remember where in the thread it is, but one of my favourites involved a manager being given a stadium ban, so he watched the game from the attic of an adjacent house while issuing instructions to his assistant by phone.

Also, there was Osset Albion having the ball on a plinth that the players would run out either side of as if it was the world cup final, and a bit of a thread (think it was a different thread) on non-league badges that were a clear ripoff of big team's badges *cough* FGR *cough*

From memory I think it was something to do with a particularly tinpot rivalry Gateshead were trying to create with Grimsby. Gateshead were rubbing in the fact they'd knocked them out of the playoffs and were advertising telling everyone to get down to watch them beat them again.

Grimsby then proceeded to beat them 7-1 away in the match I think.

Yep that was it, their Twitter that day had ‘Come and watch us beat Grimsby for £10’ - before we went and hammered them 6-1.

Barnet have set up an alt account on Twitter - described as "the official unofficial voice" - which basically serves no purpose other than to rile fans by adding patronising additional detail to tweets on the official account which I think is run by the same person.

'Sadly we this is how the ultras world works' LOLZ, pathetic

Nearly as sad as those chumps who started to follow Lincoln when Cowley arrived, previously nowhere to be seen on our visits there.

BUT THIS IS HOW THE ULTRAS WORLD WORKS !!!!!
