Great post Ian Nicholson but if we want politics out of sport then we also need full separation of church and league so you'll need to resign as chaplain, or take on a shaman and a rabbi too for balance.
All chaplains are equally available to those of all faiths and none - and I'm happy to access an Imam, Rabbi or Richard Dawkins devotee where requested by a player. Not so sure about a Shaman though:)

We are not that immodest! The Council are well aware of how important the Club's community contribution is and the local paper has good news club stories most weeks. People will contribute on forums exactly as they wish and, as you know, shutting that down really does kick things off. The club can only control its official face and seek to influence/manage the rest. We have 1600 season ticket holders and its very diverse - a full range of culture, class and viewpoints... from liberal lefties to Tommy Robinson wannabees. Many of our posters ( and actually if you look at it there aren't that many!) know each other and have a good go - but are still united by following Woking together.
Oh I wasn't suggesting shutting the forums down - that would be a terrible idea! I think a lot of us were tainted by the trip to Woking earlier this season - it really was a miserable experience and no one seemed particularly interested in responding, apart from the sneering gang on the forum.

Having now read about the good side side of Woking perhaps B.I.G could apologise for being so wide of the mark invtarring then all with his ‘hooligan’ brush...

Dear editor, I don't think we should necessarily rule out closing down forums at this stage, we need to do all we can to promote the inclusivity revolution.

I'm disappointed that my fellow Woking fans didn't accept criticism in good humour. They need to understand that the Dulwich Hamlet matchday experience is not just the most vibrant and inclusive in non-league, it is absolutely a template to be adopted by all clubs. The sneering contempt that was posted on this forum and on a blog were actually just being helpful and, speaking personally, they helped the scales fall from my eyes (apologies for the bible reference, other religious texts are just as valid here).

I looked through the rudeness and terrible self-satisfied smugness and I now realise that all other clubs have been doing football wrong for the last century or so. Even the comments that were posted BEFORE your trip to our ground referencing Woking as "the arsehole of the Southern universe," and stating that "I'll bet their support is nowhere near as vibrant and diverse as ours," which some people saw as evidence of chippyness, were useful in my Damascene conversion.

So, I am starting a campaign to FREE our supporters and visitors from the tyranny of Health and Safety legislation. We should ignore all recommendations by the police and ground licencing authorities and, if that leads to fines and other sanctions, then so be it. No revolution was ever successful without a few casualties.

PS: Sorry to go on, but as Comrade Trotsky said, "Revolutions are always verbose."

I know you think you're being positively hilarious here but I'm afraid I have to break the news: you're just a bit tedious. But thanks for all the effort. You tried.

Woking fans better than Dulwich fans.

Call me old fashioned if you have the bollocks to tar a whole club you should have the bollocks to say it to their face or let them know who you are, rather than be a spineless shit stirring internet coward. But then what would I know eh, I’m just that bloke who nobody wants to travel on a coach with...

You’ve been shown up. Justify it as you like.

Really? I’m not justifying anything.Especially to a shot stirring cunt like you. As far as I’m concerned you embarrass yourself & our Club with a lot of your posts. Each to their own.

Let’s hope Dulwich Mishi incitement to violence gets swept under the carpet just as his actual violence has been in the past.
Incitement to violence? Yawn! I’m not the one tarring whole opposition thus getting their backs up. I’d say that’s incitement to violence...

Talking of segregation. I remember years ago going to a Dortmund vs PSG Uefa Cup game. We were late getting into the Dortmund end because we had to wait while the PSG fans were escorted in in separate groups and segregated into three different bits of the stadium - to keep them from fighting amongst themselves (this is common with them apparently but I didn’t know at the time).

I don’t know why I’m reminded of this now.

You’re really comparing this to the PSG hooligan factions? Good grief...

I take it you two won’t be sharing a haloumi skewer and a pint of craft ale?

I wouldn’t even know what a haloumi skewer is, give me plain good old fashioned cheese roll any day & as for the craft ale... I don’t drink, so your attempt at humour is a bit lost on me I’m afraid! As we’re talking food though, I’m in the mood to treat myself to a double,double at Arments tomorrow....

I've lost the will to live with this thread, I really can't take anymore. Time to work out how to use the "ignore thread" function again.
I think I’ll join you. In fact, I’ll probably be giving this forum a swerve for a while. I’m all for free speech but the insults, foul language and generally unpleasant behaviour is getting ridiculous.

Good stuff this but 90% of Dulwich fans just go along for a few tins tbh
Exactly - its a football club! How about we wont judge you for a few pompous, self opinionated idiots on your forum if you don't return the favour. That way we might enjoy a game of football between 2 teams of decent players and fans, the vast majority of whom are decent people having a day out
