Re: Back From The Match - Preston

Getting close to writing this season off. Its clear we are an utter sack of s*ite away from home and it's clear it's not going to improve. Not sure if you were a fan last season (cos you aren't this) but we lost our first two away games. We also lost at Preston so grab yourself a strong rubber band...

Re: Food vans

I noticed the queuing issue last night - not sure what's going on there. Had to go to the pulled pork van for my £2.40 bottle of water. Pork baguette 7 quid FYI I always thought a jacket potato van might do a good business up there. The healthier, middle-class option, if you will. Anyone willing to ...

Re: Food vans

not only that, but they sneaked in a 33% price increase for a cheeseburger (£4.50 to £6.00) the only possible excuse is that they now offer a wrinkled piece of lettuce in addition to the onions and slice of processed cheese so it is now slower and more expensive.... I think that might possibly be b...

Re: Weekend Football

If you ever wanted an easy fixture for the first game of the season it has to be West Ham without Antonio, Lanzini and Carroll. Wait for the media to cream themselves over 2nd season Mourinho.

Kermorgant probably until October

Harriott and McCleary are probably September returns

The others are hopefully all this August.

Thank you Sutekh.

Hopefully we go into the Christmas period with a full compliment then. Could be good timing
