He is disapointed. Was never going to happen due to some on there commitee being against it. They have there views which will never change. Wish them well.

No surprise there, think we can guess who. A response to their statement on Twitter said something along the lines of waiting for the abuse from Ducks fans! Made me smile, think heís misjudged our opinions. Leave them to it.

Missed opportunity for both clubs that fair minded, rational thinking fans will regret whilst conservative, narrow minded supporters will celebrate.

Very clever statement that, making out it was them who 'walked away' from the talks.

I'm still firmly in the no merger camp.

Interesting. I wonder if their current chairman will stick around.

I predict Aylesbury FC will be next year's Arlesey.

One respected tweeter even talking about an implosion at the club.

Looks like the old guard have had a victory, even if you think their stance smacks of desperate vainglorious defiance.Very disappointing. Let's hope they've won the battle but will soon lose the war. Think Mike f is probably articulating the feelings of the majority of fans on both sides

It would have been nice to have sorted something out but I think we'll be ok. We have a united fan base, a better manager and a good junior set up.

They've had the town to themselves for 9 years and are still level pegging with us in the league, says it all really.

Agree Lee. Good Luck to them time to move on.

Thorny-D has a very strange idea that we as a club our rotten to the core. Isnt he supposed to be a club official ? Even if he isnt, he really does need to moderate his tone.

He along with DB do the pitch. I think he should ask his own club about what the lease was given for.

Do have to laugh at some short memories down FC. From us poaching players to taking them over.....................Boot, shoe, other foot?

Expected deluded comments on their forum but interesting to see some support for us moving in. The statement may well have lost them short in demand volunteers/support behind the scenes, if not this season but most definitely next.

As others have said we still exist over 10 years outside the town, much to the annoyance of some.

At least the statement has stopped the tumbleweed on their forum with the largest amount of responses to a thread since September

Up the ducks!

Would be good to see the comment about being rotten to the core qualified by the person who wrote it. I doubt we will though.

Unless they get significant investment surely their situation won't change?  It must be hard to survive on small crowds and pay all the bills.  I'm fully aware we're not in the rosiest of positions either but I imagine our groundshare agreement is probably financially not a huge burden when we get small crowds as we don't have the rest of the baggage to pay for.

He makes for an interesting scientific study. He seems flattered about the club official bit though, even if it is just holding DB's bin bags open for him  ;D
