  1. The idea for to close off Harpers road for through traffic has never been discussed to the majority of residents for example the first I knew about it was that there was a proposal in front of the traffic committee, and a colleague in work knew nothing about it and he lives in pasture lane. The longbarn residents association is a good idea that has become a bit power crazy, I am all for residents rallying together to pick up litter and making the area a nicer place to live by developing a community spirit. I am not aware of how many members there are in the Longbarn association but I am sure it is not the whole estate; they keep bringing up issues that in the long run will cost other residents (who are not part of the association) money. For example: Complaining about people parking from the industrial estates and walking through. The council could put in permit parking or double yellow lines in but the question would be where would visitors to the street to see family/friends park? Many of the driveways in that area are already full so on street parking is sometimes an unavoidable problem, (not that it is ever that much of a problem as somebody who played on the streets in questions I never felt unsafe). The permits may be free in the first year but then the council I am sure would put a charge on this as an "administration fee" so residents would then require to pay for a permit so visitors could park outside their home. The longbarn residents association are typical of the "Nimby" culture that I really don’t like. As for the local councillors it must be getting close to election time as the leaflets have started coming through the doors again and their supporters have started walking around, we have not seen anything for 12 months but that is another topic.
  2. As a resident of Longbarn i was also opposed to this plan. The traffic is only an issue between the hours of 7 til 10am then the rest of the time it’s a quiet road Traffic on the east side of Warrington on the other hand is horrendous at times. The main priority for Warrington east would be to sort out getting people from the M6 to Birchwood, not closing off a quiet road I suggest giving Birchwood its own M6 junction and making Birchwood Way a dual carriageway for the whole length and the same with Woolston grange; it would solve some of the problems The lack of investment across Warrington’s road network I firmly believe is holding the town back, and with an ever expanding population the problems will only get worse without serious investment
  3. i quite like that Bill it is the first time i have heard that, i saw them put them up they seemed to go up very quickly, all i know is that one of the guys putting them up had a very nice car, if they did catch fire it would become dangerous very quickly
  4. to be honest i have been very critical of the central midfield however if they play like they did last saturday then i will admit i was wrong. keep it up lads make me eat my words
  5. there is, well i hope so i work there, , Well it is actually a fire test facility so there is fires there all the time.
  6. As this forum is so quiet which is a good sign
  7. I have said this before, our midfield, when Mannix and Dogan play together, might as well not be there. As for team spirit it quickly vanished when things were going against us, everyone blaming each other for their mistakes. Positives is this keeper looks the real deal, even if he didnt have much to do. the most important thing about yesterday was the three points. if you want to be a top team then grinding out results is the most important thing. p.s on a side note Prescot beat New Mills 7-1, does this put our result in perspective?
  8. FT finished 2-0. two clean sheets in a row now. bring on winsford in the cup, need a good run this year
  9. according to the clubs official twitter account.. Town lead 2-0 both goals coming from Ben Wharton, what a good signing he is looking (when he stays onside). i also hope we keep the service to him.
  10. been nothing to shout about It may be early days but from what i have seen this team is no better than the one we have had for the past 4 years
  11. I would not call them lazy i think it is their game, i just think we dont need two people doing that job. will be intresting to see who drops out once Mason is ready to play
  12. Lost 0-2 to be fair could have been more, Darlington looked good simple as that they were better all over the park, but with their budget what do you expect. Worrying sign for us was how slow we looked in midfield and up top. I also am beginning to wonder whether Dogan and Mannix can play together as they seem to do exactly the same job. Early days so bring on Tuesday, (i might have dried out by then)
  13. I have not seen the recent games but having watched all the home games, i think Mannix makes our midfield slow. the best performance i saw was from our midfield was against Stoke our midfield was fantastic, Dogan sitting and West and Brett doing the running, again this might have been one game but it was one of the strongest displays i have seen from our midfield in ages.
  14. Cheers toby, sounds like a cracking game.
  15. How did the reserves get on?
