Re: BFTG - Cardiff

He sent on a player with the instruction for him to flatten Steve Hunt - class!! He got Carl Asaba to wind up John Mackie (not the brightest spark in the grate). Mackie made a stupid racist remark to Asaba, something that Asaba didn't want to pursue, but Colin did. I didn't think Cardiff were that g...

Re: Board of Directors - Look away now ...

Football finances are in a ridiculous state. If Stam had been manager when Coppell was, it is absolutely certain that the figure he spent on players would be so much less. You can't even use the usual inflation figures to compare spending. Comparisons of spending by one manager against another are t...

Re: Jaap's Radio Comments

I like Stam and I like the style of play we're trying to play. We built up last season from slow and boring(ish) to really good. My problem with today was the same as my biggest problem with the play last season - players seem more intent on holding their position, rather than move to a better one. ...

Re: Shocking and disgusting behaviour

If I had a cigarette on a train, I would be treated like the criminal that I am and fined, at the very least. But setting off a smoke bomb is just a bit of fun!!

Re: Stop explicit language in the ground...

A friend of mine took his very young daughter to a match at Elm Park. She asked him: "Dad, what's a wakner?"

Re: Still not received Season Ticket

If you're having delivery issues, maybe you can arrange to collect them pre-game? That's what I'll have to do, I guess. Except that I drive in from Essex, pick the son up on the way, park in Green Park so the last thing I want to do is queue up at the ticket office with no guarantee that I'll actua...

Re: Still not received Season Ticket

My son ordered our Sts in April to get the bigger discount. He paid for them using either a Bank Card or Credit Card. He had changed his address, and I was told that they had (probably) been sent to his old address, even though they must have had his new address to allow the card payment!! We hadn't...

Re: BFTG - Fulham

I don't get the idea that Fulham are a very good side. In the first minute their bloke got sent off for grabbing Barrow's foot and they then spent the rest of the game trying to get one of ours sent off. I don't think there was a minute in the game where one of their players wasn't down on the groun...

Re: Heightened Security Measures

Fair enough. I wasn't patted down though.

80,000 were at Wembley for the PO final. Security was very thorough, but it was managed with the minimum of disruption.

Re: Heightened Security Measures

The stupidest thing about the searches was that those without bags weren't searched, but all bags were. If I was entering the LW to cause trouble with, say, a knife or club, I'm pretty sure I would carry it in a pocket, rather than a handbag. Another thing - at HT I sneak out for a smoke. I did the ...

Re: Transfer fees out of control

I'm not concerned about not spending tonnes. We've consistently proved that you don't need to spend a lot (at least in transfer fees) to be successful. It's about recruiting the right sort of player and it's about the team. Even with the undoubted quality that Wolves have signed I'd be very surpris...

Re: Next seasons kit choice?

I for one am shaking with anger about the complete lack of news, and the utter contempt with which the club treats its fans. We are literally last every season. This year I think its only Wednesday and us who haven't released at least one kit in the entire football league. No ambition This is obvio...

Re: RUMOUR: Gunter to Boro

Success and Failure are very much relative terms. The squad that finished very near the bottom of the league for the two previous seasons managed to get to the Play-off final, and only lost on penalties. That, to my mind, is the sign of a successful club. Whether you like the play-offs or not, they ...

Re: BFTG - Wembley

My knowledge of football is such that I couldn't give advice to Jaap Stam. I saw the game as being one of us defending a 1-0 lead. That worked very well - Huddersfield had (I think) 2 shots on target throughout the 120 minutes. We didn't really try to go forward and it was a bit of a surprise that w...

Re: The Shame Your Block Thread

Atmosphere was good in 109, too, given the general lack of action on the pitch.

When AAH saved the penalty, I thought I was going to explode. Mind you, when Liam Moore blasted his over, it got a bit quieter.

Re: Which side should the mini-kit be?

I assume 'little-TBM' is your son and not some sort of euphemism.

If it's a euphemism, just wear it whichever side you want. If it's your son, the same.

Re: Programme this season

When at a home game, I like to read about the opposition team. In the past they used to give pen-pictures of the opposing players. So, if I see someone do something good or bad, I want to read about them. Also, as everyone else has said, it does annoy me when they clog up the middle of the programme...

You can park in the Wembley Red Car Park. Right by our end and £30.
