I salute the the bloke who when asked for £40 for 5 burgers and chips told them where to get off. It used to just be a pie and a cup of bovril at half time and then back to the pub. When I say used to be, up until five years ago it would have been a quid or so for a bovril and £1.50ish for a pie. ...

I remember tumbling from the top to nearly the bottom of the South Bank!! Another happy memory was that my mate's old man who sat in the north Stand told us in the Rendevous afterwards of some "wags" chucking gold chocolate coins at McGhee during the game aswell. I do not mean to come over...

He's here, he's there, he's everyfingwhere, Martin Hicks, Martin Hicks A legend and a bloody nice bloke but unfortunately in his last few years his heaad seemed to grow into the shape of an anvil as he could no longer head the ball in the direction he wanted it to go. This may be harsh though given ...

Please please please tell me your tongue is firmly in your cheeks!

When the predictable string of songs goes to form I think we should point out politely, that they, like us, will have a trophyless season.

My 4 yr old keeps asking me when he came come along to a game and I have been considering taking him to sit on my lap. Only problem is I look around me at games and there's barely enough room for me, let alone a 4 yr old too! I was talking to a friend about it and she said that they had taken their...

Don't do it. I took my son to his first match when he was four. He quite liked watching the players warm up. Then just before kick off he said he wanted to go home. Then when the match started and I started venting my feelings at the ref he burst into tears. At half time he wanted to go home! then ...

I seem to have the sam problem as a few people on here. I currently have a season ticket and one for my 5 year old son despite us now living 230 miles away in Colwyn Bay. I could justify the £700 spend, just about, because of the importance of our first ever season in the top flight. I cannot make ...

Personally I would rather that we have no dealings with the Dongs. It is IN MY OPINION, that by doing so we are endorsing what happened to Wimbledon which is very wrong.

Neale Cooper or Francis Joseph for me. Neale Cooper as he was a member of the fantastic early 80s Aberdeen side but by the time he came to us he could no longer pass water. Francis Joseph as he was bought in as a replacement for Trev after our first season up in Div 2 and thanks to him and the other...
