Part Time James and Willo; come down to Woodside Road and say that!
Seriously though, there has been much improvement at Worthing FC recently, on and off the pitch.
Not sure if you are aware that the club has been owned for the past couple of years by George Dowell, a very pleasant and unassuming 22 year old, who at 16 was on the verge of the Worthing first team when he was involved in an horrific car crash.
This left the poor lad paralysed from the chest down. Following a long rehabilitation he decided to invest some of his compensation in his local club.
Woodside Road now boasts a 3G pitch, totally refurbished bar (open normal pub hours every day), an outside bar, much improved food offering and recently refurbished main stand.
George doesn't frequent the Directors box, he mingles with fans (usually 500/600 gates) and watches pitchside in his wheelchair.
On the pitch, The Rebels achieved promotion last season and also reached the Sussex Senior cup final.
I understand you wouldn't PTJ due to your allegiance elsewhere, but you should give it a try Willo, I always enjoy my match day experience at Worthing.

I've been meaning to attend a Worthing 'Home' game for ages !
Living not too far removed from there I am aware about their setup, ownership and their promotion last season.I wish them well.

You might or might not be aware that their U21 team from last season (Who ended up Ryman U21 champions) have moved lock stock and barrel to East Preston FC and they form EPs first team.

Willo, not sure but think they also reached the Sussex U21 cup final last season, and were eventually knocked out of the FA Youth cup by Middlesbrough. Or was that the U18's?

FA Youth Cup is for U18s, so it must have been Worthing's U18 team.

I like the point about Harvesters - truly detestable, doesn't have to be towns of course, the whole of outer London is an abomination, and Surrey which is basically the same khazi as Essex but with an idea of itself as being somehow closer to Berkshire - and if you want to drivel on about Worthing FC please start your own thread - 'less than a club'. Oh, while on the south coast Hythe is a posh sh*thole - it has that same undefinable bleakness one feels travelling down St John's Hill in Wandsworth - inhabited by the self-satisfied undead.

I may have certain poncy up-arse tendencies, but I am happily ignorant of Gilbert and Sullivan, but doesn't one of their operettas have a recurring joke that when people get over-excited everyone starts shouting 'Basingstoke' to calm down? I'm not too keen on Gilbert O'Sullivan either, especially after he stopped wearing a cap and got a perm with a centre parting.

I work in Milton Keynes and drive 30 miles to let there every day, when I leave the a5 to start roundabout roulette I get a sinking feeling of driving to a bland place every day.

It can't be any different tho really...a clusterf*** of new housing estates and the whole place is centred & built around a massive shopping complex.

House prices are extortionate considering it's a soulless bland place.

I know people who used to live in 'Fenny Stratford' on the outskirts of Milton Keynes, not that far from the MK Dons ground.FS seemed a rather bland place to me - certainly no 'Wow' factor.

Dons ground is on your standard idea based retail park aswell, like I said..when a entire town is based on a shopping centre it's got no change.

I just laugh when me staff use the term "going up the city" when they describe the shopping centre

Correct. Too many roundabouts, the sheer volume is frightening!

I have two places above there though: Flint and Rhyl, in North Wales. Vile places.

As someone who grew up and lived in Fflint for nearly 10 years it's hard to disagree.

Rhyl however is a different league, you could hardly call it inoffensive, a once thriving seaside town is now just full of drugs and scousers on probation.

Not really it's just like any other town / city,
it has good places and bad places , you pay more for the good area's and less for the bad. You have to live there to know what a place is like and where the good and bad areas are.
The roundabouts are brilliant if you know how to use them , hardly any traffic congestion , never takes any more than 15 - 20 mins to get anywhere.
Loads of open spaces and parks and lakes to walk /cycle and take the kids to.
