Just thought I would post a BIG thank you to Tom.. I thought Daniel was helpful enough, but Tom; you are a breath of fresh air. The response times and detail of what is happening at the club that are being posted on this site have improved 10 fold since since you arrived. The media releases are superb and the quality of the website has also improved dramatically. I was also very impressed with the way you ran the fans forum.
I've no idea where we got you from, but thanks for all that you are doing. Not least since I understand you do it all for free.......

You're very kind! I enjoy doing it and I get a lot of help from Tony Scargill, Vivien Calvert, Angela Burkinshaw, James Stephenson, Steve Horsfall and 'Roger'. It's one big team effort!

Glenn is an absolute pleasure to work with, as is Ryan Sparks (The Press) and Andrew Hunt (Dewsbury Reporter).

One thing I would say about the club in the past is they weren't the best at keeping fans informed. But Tom is doing a great job with constant press releases and they are well written, not full of cliches.

Keep it up!

Sorry Piggy, you left yourself wide open for that one, funny though, none of this Dewsbury lot were clever enough to spot it.

Are there any threads Piggy can't hijack and completely change the theme of the original post ?

Cross dressing ? is that where the wife makes you put a shirt and tie on just because you're (apostrophe provided) going to a funeral. :o

When I was a lad Billy Goat Gruff used to be a favourite on the wireless. Is this the start of a revival?

Be fair to the lad, PM.
Let him finish his GSCEs first.

Kelsey, I'm sure you won't take PM seriously. I think the close season has affected him more than ususal. He'll be back to his sensible self after Boxing Day.

You've met the wife then ? Young kelsey will come to realise that behind every successful man is a good woman --- nagging. Let him have a few years of freedom before he commits to wedded bliss - I would suggest about another twenty years. ;)
