    Proud to live in a Country where they have a choice. (However misguided they may be) I would rather the Poppy was worn by people who wish to wear one rather than forced to wear one.

    I can't believe some people on here. He is out injured, an injury that may well have ended his career given his age. I doubt anyone is more frustrated than Beckford, who was comfortably our best player last season by the time of his injury. He is a talented player on whom we took the same gamble we had done in the past with Clarke and Vaughan - the striker who has lost their way. Because of the injury it has never come to pass in the way it did with the other two. it took a lot of players' bad attitudes to make last season the relentless turd omelette it became, but JB was certainly not one of them. Frankly he showed more interest when analysing our game at Blackburn for Sky than many of his colleagues did on the pitch. Also why would we "pay him off" - he has no incentive to take that and we lose an experienced player round the club who can still teach a lot to the younger forwards we have at the club.

    Absolutely fine. McLean is not doing this to wind people up, he is doing it for considered reasons that he has clearly explained numerous times every year. The fact that I disagree with several of his arguments is irrelevant. I would much prefer that people choose to wear a poppy than be railroaded into it as it shows that people are actually thinking about its meaning and not just wearing it in ignorance. A news reader has also received abuse for not wearing a poppy on screen, and her reasons made great sense (that she supports many charities including the poppy appeal but is not allowed to support any other on air). The poppy should be a symbol of liberty and freedom yet people have adopted a near fascist approach to anyone not wearing one, and many who do wear one are using it as virtue signalling with their flash poppies (many of which do not raise appropriate funds) rather than wearing the traditional, humble, paper & plastic version.

    There is also another dimension to the James MacLean issue. He is from Londonderry and probably still has a number of relations and friends who still live there. Unfortunately there are still a significant number of people in NI who can't/won't move on and would 'take note' if he was seen to be wearing a poppy. Although I donate to the RBL Poppy cause I actually never wear a poppy. Radcliffe Loyal mentioned about the Haig Fund. As far as I'm concerned Haig was resposible for killing both my grand-fathers and my fathers' brother I served 9 years in the Royal Marines and didnt wear a poppy because of Haig.

    IMO it is important to remember why poppies are sold. The Haig Fund was set up to benefit wounded soldiers, sailors and airmen in the wake of World War One. The sale of poppies now benefits those who were wounded in subsequent conflicts. Poppies don't denote or define political affiliations. They symbolise our gratitude and concern for people who put their lives on the line for us. The initial beneficiaries of the Haig Fund included service personnel from Britain, Ireland and elsewhere. I like to think that people support the Poppy Appeal for the right reasons.

    I don’t want people to be made to wear one. I want them to chose to wear one rather than not.

    i Personally find it a bit disrespectful if they don’t wear one. Tottyboy is right, it’s a free country, but why is it a free country? Because we won the wars that thousands of people died fighting for our free country. People like Matic and McClean need to realise how privileged they are to earn the fortunes they do in our free country. It could have been oh so different. This is to remember those that have fallen for us. So some class, show some respect. It’s one bloody football match in your career. Disclaimer: this is only my opinion, I don’t expect everyone to agree with me. This is possibly a way too touchy subject for on here!

    That's harsh and ill informed. Dawson hasn't played well for us since he returned but injuries have clearly taken a toll. He has given 100% all the time. Deserves respect.

    "Unusual" statue of the Liverpool striker unveiled in Egypt to join a distinguished line of WTF offerings like Ronaldo, Lucille Ball and the "fearsome" tiger symbol of a Sri Lankan army battalion. Did the sculptor intend to marry a barely recognizable head on to a "matchstick" body or did she simply run out of money to buy materials after casting the head? https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-middle-east-46094658

    I am getting sick of the quality of our representatives and parties who demonstrate time and again that its not the wellbeing of the people of this country that matter but personal and party wealth, power, ego and ambition. From the mess that David Cameron has inflicted with Brexit ( I will implement the peoples wishes joke), the behaviour of Gove et al and not forgetting the OBE Dave bestowed on his hairdresser to the treachery of Clegg and student fees to the unadulterated embarrassment of the labour shower willing to vote down any deal simply to get into power- where on earth is the wellbeing of the people figuring in all of that. Its frankly sickening and we are being hoodwinked by all of them .It would be the time to leave these shores if Corbyn, McDonnell and Abbott ever set foot in number 10. I genuinely believe that a lot of the current political reps from all parties are wholly duplicitous, untrustworthy self ingratiating and sometimes sleeze bags that have lost the plot as to why they are in the House which should be ..... to do their best for the people!! Democracy has become sullied. So let me muse an alternative- I think I want a 'dictatorship' such as the head of the Church Of England or the Catholic Church or some other upstanding and outstanding person of moral standing that will genuinely try to do what's right and with a mandate that they admit it if they make a mistake. A kind of commonsense honesty that eludes the practice of our current political class. Radical I know.

    I don't think they were, the cretin likes nothing about this country except the wage he earns. If we ever signed him I would stay away till he left.

    Totally agree and so would I but too many people trying to control what others do these days. Personal choice and as Stonekeeper says it means more if the person wears it by choice.

    I would have no problem . Free country . The Boro fans who had a go at James McClean at Stoke were bang out if order in my opinion . Just to confirm I would be happy to wear one myself.

    There was an article recently welcoming the company who are upgrading the camera equipment. The cameras were at different heights on metal poles and I think to be planted around the pitch, so maybe they aren't looking to use the Main stand.

    I’ve had many friendly exchanges on here thanks as some people don’t get all uppity about Rochdale fans having a bit of a laugh with them. I’ve never gone as far as the personal abuse I was subjected to but as usual you refuse to acknowledge my point and stick to your own agenda. Yes I have gently ribbed people but as far as I’m aware I haven’t broken the rules about personal abuse laid out in the thread above. How are you going to deal with the poster who subjected me to personal abuse? Try not to avoid the question eh?

    I think he’s just upset because I didn’t ever ‘like’ one of his tedious Plymouth posts from last season.

    Disparaging? I was called an “absolute virgin” on here recently but don’t recall you shouting down the person who posted it. Purely because I’m not a bury fan I’d assume. Now who’s the hypocrite? I also note there is a ‘sticky’ at the top of this forum that says personal abuse like the above will not be tolerated. Did you report the post and why didn’t the moderators act even if you didn’t? A local forum for local people.

    Probably not the best we've played so far this season as others have said however we were clinical and they weren't that was the difference between the two teams, Mayor was pretty much anonymous as they clearly did there homework unlike others teams who didn't and Danny exploited that, however it was good to see that we are not just reliant on Mayor to open teams up and create chances I commented on another thread pre match that anything other than 3 points would be disappointing last season we would have lost a game like this. Nice to see that ruthless clinical streak we have credit to Lowe and the coaching staff and lastly the players.

    Bolger seems out of favour at Fleetwood, just a bench warmer under the new manager it seems, whereas the previous management seemed to favour both him and Eastham as twin centre halves. I was very impressed when we had him on loan from Southend, could it be worth an enquiry in January for a loan till the end of the season?

    Not with our crowds unfortunately. Bradford for example are having a hard time at the moment, but their potential pulling power within a population of 300k assures them of high quality and high earning sponsorships and merchandising which will make it far easier for them to turn it round eventually. I look at the L2 table and reckon that almost half of the clubs are bigger than Bury FC nowadays; a glance at L1 and the disparity becomes frightening. For us tbh, other than finding the proverbial sugar daddy, I see no way that we can ever reach the second tier again. But as i've been banging on for years on here, perhaps the real achievement - and one in which as real supporters we can all be proud - is that a small club like ours, with enormous local competition, can keep surviving at all.

    will be good to see O'Connell back in against Dover . Be interesting who he would come in for - Stokes or Aimson - on a long term basis as I think he is better than both of them

    Topic aside - this is a wonderful photograph. I had my reservations about Beckford when we signed him (given our penchant for big name signings who didn't perform through lack of application) however I'm happy to state that I was proven wrong in Jermaine's case. I saw no evidence of a player who couldn't care less, rather someone who was willing to work hard and whenever I've heard him being interviewed, someone who has the best interests of our club at heart. Whether or not we'll see him play in a Bury shirt again is debatable. If not, my sincere thanks as a fan and good luck for the future.

    Some posters beggar belief Quality player who has been unlucky with injury. He's certainly not lazy - he has excellent positional awareness which may come across as lazy because he's not pointlessly legging around the pitch. He's always in the right place at the right time
