Fort William 2020-21 Thread

Recommended Posts

The Chuff Chuffs aren’t fighters, they’re only in it for the beer.

Turriff have a squad of pre-school Ultras also. A face off between them and fort would be good, if we can get it appropriately chaperoned.

Maybe get their parents to drive them to a neutral venue, like say Rothes, & can then have a three-way face off with Rothes' recently appeared Orange Army

Was talking to a boy who used to play for Clach in the gym on Friday who said that the Fort boys were gobbing on opposition fans to goad them into fights.

How true this is I don't know. Nasty as hell if it is.

Only 254 days a year, on average.

Three year old ultras must be fucking mental!

Should have offered them a place on the team if they turned up on time.

Fort William v Lossiemouth now reversed to Lossiemouth.

Having already met at Lossiemouth in December, both their encounters this season will have been Lossiemouth v Fort William, which is novel.

Fort ended up playing their first ever home Highland League game against Lossie in Lossie on a Sunday, after numerous postponements and a call off the day before forced their hand as the season ran long again.

I see they're still pushing the '800+ days without a win' line on The Pussbook. Surely Fort have developed something about themselves that revelling in their uselessness is no longer seen as a badge of honour.

The locals never have, and probably never will, care about them. I've never been willing to believe a town that size can't get twenty boys to play football in a competent manner, a dozen folk in suits to run the club and a few hundred punters shoving their noses through the gate every so often, but maybe they genuinely can't. 

They seem confident they've fixed their pitch, tho. Just in time.
