Discussion in 'Dulwich Hamlet FC' started by Fingers, Apr 19, 2017.
A version of Streatham Rovers club anthem I understand.
Anyway, Good luck to the pub and the locals in reaching a compromise on this- its a shame that this has been brewing for so long with no progress and that it has now reached the legal stage. I like the G and their Pizzas and if I am on a late one, then this is invariably my final port of call before slumping off home. It has a uniqueness that is pretty much absent elsewhere in the manor - I would hate it to become a run of the mill gastropub
Nice grafik doing the rounds
Obvious support for the Gowlett
re earlier comments - Not just Brixton Ritzy - Living Wage
East Dulwich Picture House
in fact one of those taking action is a regular at Dulwich Hamlet
That's good to see...just a shame it wasn't publicised on here, so more support from our terraces could have been mobilised.
One of the reasons the Ritzy strikes got so much support from Dulwich fans is because fans (some of whom lived in Brixton) made an effort to make links with the workers and strike organisers and gathered DHFC fans together to go down to strikes after Dulwich matches.
Anyone can start a thread on these boards. If you want Dulwich to better support the strikes, then you (or anyone else) can make it happen. I would have thought your work with the committee would give you the perfect platform to organise something and speak to fans about supporting this campaign. Unless this is just an opportunity to have a moan
The only reasons I didn't start a thread was because I was at work that day, we were away to Burgess Hill Town...and I genuinely/mistakenly thought someone else would.
My work on the Committee isn't for using as a perfect platform, it would be something I would do as an individual, and try to get the Committee to offer a message of support. Like when we were supportive of the supporter-led backing of the ritzy workers.
And, just for the record..I NEVER moan, I merely put across the CORRECT point of view!
Well you know what they say Mishi, "if you want something doing..."
I'm sure this isn't the end of the story for local cinema workers or indeed other local workers fighting for fair wages and conditions. So you and other Dulwich fans will have plenty more opportunities to support these types of cause. I look forward to seeing your threads on these matters.
Who are you kidding, moaning is your raison d'etre. You love it (almost as much as you love using the word merely)
So so wrong! I can honestly say that supporting Dulwich Hamlet Football Club is my raison d'etre....now that I have looked it up in the dictionary. Which may explain your perceived assumption that I use the word 'merely' a lot. This is merely because I have a more limited working class vocabulary that our more educated support base.
I didn't know about that protest to be fair, would have nipped over as I only live round the corner. Big up DHFC that went along mind.
Back to the Gowlett, has anyone heard any more? Will try and message the landlord today and get an update!
It's really cute that you use a still use dictionary btw. I'm glad to see that you are still living up to your dinosaur nickname in so many ways
If I had the time or the inclination, I'd search for the amount of times you have used the word merely. You might be surprised by the result.
I make no apologies for my university education, which I recieved for free since my family are on benefits and my mum lives in a council house
Can you two do this elsewhere? It's very nice and all, but not really 'on-topic' is it?
I could, but I only respond in public to what's posted in public. I respond elsewhere, as in private message, or face-to-face, if communicated to that way.
As for 'on-topic'...threads don't always stay 'no-topic' they evolve...and what's 'on-topic' anyway. I'd 'merely' [to use my apparent catchphrase] down to individual interpretation...
yeah, but an evolution of you two trying to wind eachother up has little to do with the on-going plight of a local pub that many fans are concerned about. So maybe, we should just all move on eh?
According to the LL, the appeal process is just about to begin. Should know more in the next few weeks, I'd imagine they'll need a PR push towards a decision.
In all truth, whether you wish to believe me or not, I am not trying to wind 'him' up. In fact, so many people on here don't use their real name I often have no idea who I am responding to, even if they have told me their real identity. As I've stated many a time before I just respond to comments on here. Sometimes I try it with my brand of 'humour', sometimes I try to be serious, and yes sometimes I am MERELY on a wind-up; which I think covers most people on here.
To be honest, I have no idea why you responded to me on here, when we could have 'done this elsewhere'....
Thank you for reminding me of my nickname....just one of many down the decades! I am sure there are more than one or two floating around for you too....
Argh the Gowlett. a little off subject but recall a few years ago now "picking up" the best looking lady i ever had in that place
Used to really like it inn that place and my best mate used to live just a few yards from there
Hope it goes well for the Gowlett lets hope it can stay open and have a long future
They've announced on social media that they're shutting - from the description it sounds like financial troubles rather than the noise complaint (but could be the former inspired by the latter I suppose). Real shame.
I might have more sympathy with them if they'd ever supplied various raffle prizes and sponsorship they'd promised in the past...
But other than that, always a shame when any local pub closes.
I don’t think it was connected to the noise complaint. That was pretty quickly resolved in the end.
Southwark have recently cranked up the protection of local pubs with Article 4 directions covering almost every one - and the Gowlett has amongst the highest level of protection. So if Punch (and I’d like to give them at least a figurative one) want any change of use, demolition (god forbid), or even alteration, they will probably find it a lot harder than they bargained for.

Thanks, that's really helpful dcdulwich !
