I don't agree.
OK, more up to date, but only because its an ethical decision not to release news immediately on here.
but as for more information, I have to say that nothing rivals B&A.
I dont mind getting the info a few minutes later, as long as I can have a decent debate about it. You cant do that on the official forum, because the people that frequent it tend not to hold the discussions that I want to see.
Lets put it this way. If I want to suggest a pub to visit at, say, Aldershot. Id do it here. because its the best forum for STFC fans available.
Good luck to the Mighty Shrew crewe with their website although I think the Messageboard would be better if it wasn't a near identical copy of this one.
Websites come and go, Shrewsweb (or the STFC info page as it was first created as) has been going for 10 years, B&A has been going for nearly 5. A lot people expect immediate results when setting up a site and when it doesn't happen they stop, which is a shame.

Yeah, as far as forums go, this one is the best, but I think that the official website is just better in overall news about the club and the information gets there first, hence the reason that it is the official site.
Official sites and unofficial sites will always have different qualities. B&A, the site, is now based more upon features and fan interaction while Shrewsweb is more a voice for the club - although it does a quite excellent job at it.
TMS is a decent enough fanzine but the criticism of Sam from one of their contributors baffled me a little, I also think it should be re-named 'The Martin O'Connor fan club magazine' even though O'Connor can be a class act like they say.
Maybe they should link their forum to the B&A one, as should Shrewsweb, without tempting fate I cant really ever see another STFC message board becoming as popular as this one, not for a few years anyway.
The Herefordshire Shrews, following the finest team in Salop from carrot crunching land!
Its not bad for something that about 3 of them mainly put together and its only 60p so what kind of quality do you expect
Fair enough, I just thought the fanzine would have been better with more modification and a bit of humour.
I know it's difficult to compare the fanzine to ALS as ALS has been going for much longer and has a larger amount of input - but ALS has a large varied content ranging from serious articles, info from the club and comical articles/cartoons etc... Maybe the Mighty Shrew could benefit from expanding it's horizons a little.
I hope that didn't sound like a whinge as I respect the hard work the people involved put into it - I know one of the producers well. However i'm sure feedback is always good and can help a production like the Mighty Shrew to improve further.

Thats what will happen, hardly anyone works on the mighty shrew and with the people they have they've managed to put together a fanzine. Mark has asked some new people to write articles so it will begin to expand and some much wanted humour will definateley be included
The Mighty Shrew is a good fanzine - it must be as I believe that some of the articles in the latest edition hit home with the Club - considering it was printed just before the Telford fiasco it must also be clairvoyant!!!!!
Mark is a good lad who deserves all our support - anything produced by a fan of STFC must be supported -send in some humerous items I'm sure he would print them.
