  1. So the police officer who died yesterday was a Charlton fan. The club have released this statement and put a club scarf on his season ticket seat this morning http://mobile.cafc.co.uk/news/article/2016-17/charlton-athletic-keith-palmer-statement-3639644.aspx I haven't started this thread to have a debate about the goings on yesterday, (there's already one in the non footy forum for that) I've started it as it could have been any one of us as football fans who were killed or injured yesterday, if people wish to leave words of condolence etc.
  2. I was just thinking myself how nice it had been on here the last week or so. Amazing what a couple of wins can do.
  3. Saw some footage earlier on twitter. I'd forgotten that they had Richard O'Donnell in goal that day
  4. Yeah there was an accident. I remember sitting with Oskar and his mum for over an hour in one of the service stations as nothing was moving on the motorway, we popped in the services and it seemed like the rest of the City fans had had the same idea. We then couldn't get out of the service station!
  5. My two favourite images from that day.
  6. I haz no PM bird?
  7. Yep. Kids still get DLA, adults get PIP now (technically it's his parents claiming it, but it's all in his name. I'm in the same situation with my foster son now, I claim it as his primary carer)
  8. I guess cos most of us have more commitments ("working" a lot more hours in a week than your average footballer) and so sportsmen and women have more free time. This really isn't a pop at Joe, i'd like to see more of our players doing this sort of thing. The world needs more good male role models in particular.
  9. This is true. You have to provide proof of DLA at either the middle or higher rate.
  10. Firstly, it's lovely you want to introduce Elliot to football. Few things I'd mention having taken various disabled kids to football over the years. Take him to a reserve or ladies game, so he gets used to the goings on on a match day on a smaller scale. Get some headphones. The ones that fit over the ears, the sudden noises can be frightening at first (like when everyone suddenly starts screaming at a chance of a goal) so it's worth having them to hand just in case. Get seats on the end of a row, so you don't have to keep making others move when he inevitably needs to fidget, also means that they have a bit of space on one side of them which can help any anxieties as they don't feel so hemmed in. Ring the ticket office (ask to speak to Gareth, he's the disability rep in the ticket office) and ask them to put you somewhere less busy, for similar reasons above, but also so the noise next to him isn't so intense. Ring the ticket office as well and ask if you can pop him down for a visit when it's empty (there are things going on most days down there, so it's not locked up like used to be between matches) Hope that helps. I will have a think if I've missed anything. PM me if you want to ask me anything away from here
  11. If you have a blue badge, is it not worth contacting Brentford directly to see if they can offer you any parking on site?
  12. Ok you cheeky shit, no my arse is definitely not that big. My season ticket and associated children I take with me = 5 season tickets.
  13. Here's a link to the story http://www.bcfc.co.uk/news/article/2016-17/bryan-wins-pfa-community-champion-3636692.aspx Cant help but think this is exactly the sort of thing that players should be doing in their spare time, and I mean this in honestly the nicest way possible, but am not sure it needs an actual award. It should just be expected of them. Hope I've worded what I'm trying to say right.
  14. The quality of the footage is good, but is usually only one camera so not quote sky sports multi-angle viewing. There is no commentary. They did try having radio Bristol piped into the sports bar whilst the game was on at the first beam back they did, but it wasn't in sync with the pictures, so didn't work very well.
  15. I'll have to check with her cos it needs to be suitable for school
