Good Luck Luke, I'm so glad I didn't buy a season ticket like so many others, who were promised signings if they committed early. BFC are turning into a tinpot club. The biggest story to come out of oakwell this summer is that they signed a new commercial manager. Ha HA Ha, it breaks my heart.

Same old Barnsley were supposed to
Be recruiting to get us back in championship but let one of our longest player go p.s. Bet he's gone for the money as we'll like every other good player over the years. Another doomed season ahead.

True Red, it's a good job there has always been a few blindly loyal fans like yourself but unfortunately the majority of people are not football masochists. The history of Barnsley FC is testament to a club that has always embraced mediocrity from the time they sold Tommy Boyle to Burnley to the present day it's always been a case of sell your best players and hope to find bargain-basement replacements. The result is plain to be seen, history doesn't lie.!!
