OK, let’s dispense with the fiction first: StockportCounty are to sign both Lionel Messi and Christiano Ronaldo.

The recorded visiting support at the MBI Shay stadium for the visit of StockportCounty was 992. 

One of these statements is considerably more untrue than the other!

The County faithful were allocated four blocks of 300 seat stands and in fact ended up with around 100 having to stand in the gangways or at the back of the stand, so, by my reckoning around 1300 of the blue army were in attendance. Perhaps Halifax employs the same bean counters as Harrogate. 



Another point of ire was that the eminently more suitable standing terrace behind the north stand would have been ideal, but of course Halifax would not have been able to charge £16 for that privilege, an amount that would cause the Neville brothers to choke on their designer burgers and probably did so last week.
