Have you noticed how Linnets now seem to have dropped the name Linnets from any reference to them?
Match reports, twitter feeds, facebook etc all now simply refer to them as "Runcorn".
Very confusing given that Runcorn has two senior teams within the town of Runcorn. Both playing within the same league and both with the word Runcorn in their name and both through to the same stage of The F.A. Cup.
No doubt this is linked to their identity theft of the former Runcorn AFC.
We even have Kel Hoose claiming last nights win was the best result since the club was reformed. I'm sure what Kel actually meant was since the club was "formed", given that Runcorn Linnets are not a reformed club or did they reform when they moved from Witton to Runcorn?

got to love the trolls, I for one quite like seeing both Runcorn teams doing well this season, and long may the good natured banter persist.

Problem you have is that people like Greewood and Rose have very little in their lives. Their sad life equates to nothing more than going the match. They have people alongside them such as Ramsden and Headley who know very little about Runcorn FC and its history. They fall for Greenwoods living in the past, so try and pretend they are something they are not. They pretend they are Runcorn FC in order to hang into their past. They fear the future and reality.
Look at the board, its made up of a little clique. People who live that past life at Canal Street. At what other club would they have someone like Phil Wainwright in a board position since day one, yet never ever being elected. Purely based on the basis they are part of a clique and live in the Canal Street past.
Then you have Pritchard in it for his own self gains, say no more.


It's a false set up of a club.
Trying to trade off the history of Runcorn FC to fool people to hand over money at the gate.
How many people want to get involved at board level?
Where would they be without the local council handouts?

It's a corrupt club that attracts life's drop outs. Life's goal is being 50 years old and living at home with your mum.

It's a corrupt club - a line from the above post which in my eyes is libellous

libel (for written, broadcast, or otherwise published words)is the communication of a statement that makes a claim, expressly stated or implied to be factual, that may give an individual, business, product, group, government, or nation a negative image. It is usually a requirement that this claim be false and that the publication is communicated to someone other than the person defamed (the claimant).[1]

Once again, Yawn. Fishing for a reaction.

Another post that is 3 years out of date.

The only part of that post that is worth a response is about tyring to fool people into pretending that the club is still Runcorn FC. A, people are clever enough to make up their own mind without being fooled, and B, try telling that to all the new fans who have started watching the club in the last 18 months who never stepped foot in Canal Street.

"Good natured banter" is fine, there is a difference though when someone is accusing proffesional people, who are trusted to run the clubs financial affairs, as being corrupt. Maybe the club should look into the possibility of issuing a writ against whoever posted that, to keep the banter going, of corse.

I don't think anyone has mentioned finances etc.
What people look at in then terms are instances such as the election process and previous bullying and as highlighted by the poster, people sitting on boards that have never nominated themselves for election, as is the case with Phil. Surely the holder of the position should serve no more than a one year term?
There is also the issue of trying to pass the history of the Old Runcorn FC as your own. Surely there is mote advantage in looking to the future than there is the past. Selling the club as a new club that people want to be part of. It's not like the old club had a great heritage and fantasy to cling onto. An influx of younger forward thinking people is needed on the board, but the clique holds them people back, as the nominations and interest in joining the board showed at the last election.
