Covid champions

Just thought I’d use a FOOTBALL forum to ask a football question. Assuming it was discussed at Conf. AGM ,(yeah, right), in the possible event that the season is foreshortened, how many games played would constitute a season? This must surely have been on the agenda. But then again....

My assumption would be you'd need at least half a season with teams playing each other once in order for the season to take place officially.

Problem being that sometimes you don't get to play a side at all until suddenly you play them twice in April. A few years ago when Weymouth imploded midseason, some sides (us, for example) had played them twice when they were quite good and others (York) played them twice when they were struggling to put the Under 7s out and duly collected an easy 6 points and a boost to the goal difference into the bargain.

This season, for example, we'll have donated our rivals over the border their usual 6 points towards survival by teatime on New Years Day.

But there's always some dickhead that pipes up about the irrelevance of fixtures because "you still have to play everyone twice".

In a more predictable example, you should always want to play Chester after Christmas when Gary Roberts' legs have gone.

Serious question.... How do we beat you pretty much every time we play you, is it something like we've won 12 of the last 14... Last August for example you won 7 of your 1st 8 games, only losing at Kingfield to us... And that was our only win in August! How the fuck are you so shit against us?... but you're pretty decent on the whole. Is it players attitudes, i genuinely don't know.

It's a witch's curse.

The game last season we should have been out of sight by half time from memory. I know we went into the break behind but we'd had so many chances that the atmosphere at HT was very much that we just needed to keep at it and all would be OK.
Unfortunately the break seemed to kill us and we were a different side in the second half; and not in a good way.

At least when you ruin Christmas for us this year we won't have had to watch it in person

I'd say it's the opposite, most Aldershot fans don't mind Woking and like to see them do well, i've no problem with them... they are like a little brother..... On your forum the vitrol and hatred that oozes out of your fans to us is vast, you've only got got to read the FA Cup thread on there for next week.... Maybe you try too hard, either that or the only other thing i can think of, is your players know you will lose even if you play well..... And are just waiting till we score our usual late winner.

Yeah, I know quite a few Aldershot fans and none of them consider Woking rivals. In fact I know a few who used to go and watch Woking while Shots were away while they had long-distance away games in the FL. Aldershot's rivals will always be Reading, an inter-generational rivalry that is mutually bitter on both sides.
Woking's traditional rivals are Chertsey Town

It’s an under-30 thing I think, based on not having seen those proper rival games after they went bust. Their forum mostly suggests otherwise unless all their fans are under 30.

Aldershot wind me up because they always beat us, regularly damaging the ground in doing so. Not for rivalry reasons. They’re no chertsey that’s for sure.

Shit trolling aside, it's definitely a younger generation thing. Belgrade Shot's burberry-clad, DMA's-loving, mates get proper riled up for the 'derby day', but his father's generation couldn't give a toss, or at least they say so.

It's the same with Dover. We used to have strong bilateral relations with Maidstone but the new era of chavs have tried manufacturing a rivalry out of them. Mind you, they've mustered up 1,300 fans out of nowhere containing a sizeable breed of knobheads - so it's not a one way street.

Well come on, most of our new chavs are 12 years -15 years old getting high on sherbet pre match who will give Dover a good rollicking across the 'bedsheet' segregation.

Same with us.

I'll always get more revved up for a game against Dartford, Dover or Ebbsfleet than the "modern" rivalry with Concord, Braintree or Billericay that our younger lot seem to want to build.

I guess rivarlies are entrenched early in a person's psyche and the biggest rivalry to an individual will be the one that was present at the time they got into watching a team. When I first started watching regulally and going to away games, our most notorious clashes were vs Crawley of all teams.

Us younger fleet fans tried to manufacture a rivalry with your mob mainly for bantz purposes, as we found it funny to try and be on a level playing field with you when we'd take 5 away to Chelmo and we'd be outnumbered by about 400 to one. The older Thurrock (and all chelmo fans of course) lot never bought into it though, our older lot always had HATE for Grays, whereas we'd never experienced that match so it didn't resonate with us.

From a personal POV i fucking hated Harlow. Their fans are the biggest bellends I ever came across.

Your club was too nice for us to have any beef with....unlike those utter bellends at Braintree and especially Concord.

Those two loved to build up the small club, siege mentality and it makes them very cold, unwelcoming and prone to twattish behaviour. Thurrock were a lovely, fluffy, bundle of joy whenever we faced you. Nice people. Shame the club died.

Yep. I remember the first time we played them in 1998 in the Cup. Never ever played them before as the new club, had done our thing to try and help in 1992 - somehow greeted by “We hate Woking” chants and I just thought why exactly?!

In the mid 90's, we were both struggling towards the bottom of the Beazer Premier so there was a sporting rivalry. But also I think we had similar supporters at the time that were a bit rough round the edges. At their old ground there were a few flash points.

They ruined the short lived mini rivarly by a) turning good and b) when we were homeless, we were ejected one year from the League Cup for fielding an ineligible player. The utter bastards only went and organised a bucket collection for us at one of their home games.

For several decades there was no rivalry whatever as your former club was in the League and kept up by an inexplicable blockage in the U-bend. I suspect you only escaped the flush as "The Wreck", home of Aldershot FC was the answer to a football trivia question and it would have been a faff to try and work out who had the next biggest playing surface.

Our real rivals, of course, are Leatherhead (spits) and the DCBs (spits).

There is the pitch trivia yes.

The better one though, is we were the 1st ever winners of the Football League Playoffs 1987, we beat Bolton in the semi final and beat Wolves 3-0 on aggregate in the final. Getting promoted to now division 1.

I didn't start going until 1988, so missed all that!
