Cheers mate. The Banks name still stands. It would be like Stelling saying ‘Dean Court’ (the original name) instead of ‘The Vitality’ (which is the official name).

Stelling still does that and I applaud him for it. The sponsor name means nothing.

The same applies for competitions. It’s the FA Cup, League Cup and Football League Trophy to me. None of this Emirates, Carling, Worthingtons, Checkatrade, Auto Windscreens nonsense.

Ah but you can’t help but smile at the classic song “And we’ll really shake 'em up, when we win the Zenith Data Systems cup…”

I’ve seen a couple of people on here say that but I can’t find anything to verify it - even in the club’s own history on the OS (only says that Hilary Street was renamed after our chairman at that time, not that this was due to him giving them the ground - which I thought we already owned by then?)

The closest I’ve found is that in his will HL Fellows wrote off a £2000 loan that the club hadn’t yet repaid (https://www.rootschat.com/forum/index.php?to).

Does anyone have anything to confirm the story one way or the other?

Initially, I think I said I would present the results today, but if you could give me a few more days, they will be up over the weekend

Interesting that of the L1 respondents, we represent around 33%

Apathy Is clearly something that is alive and kicking in L1 these days

Interesting results. Decent number of Walsall fans responded too.

Noticed the gender split - I guess that is a reflection of fans forums being overwhelming male dominated?
