  1. Alleged Staff Treatment by BCFC

    When I sold half time draw tickets for a brief period back in the late 90s you got free entry to the game (normally missing the first 5 mins as at ko you'd have to take your money to the office behind the Williams), but it was pretty unofficial. You didn't receive a ticket, but as you were wearing the red waterproof thing they gave you, the stewards just let you through the gates. Given you only got 2 hours at minimum wage, the only reason you'd do the job was if you were planning on going to the game (or lived close by I guess), so I can understand sellers would be annoyed at this. Though admittedly when I was working there were about 10000 empty seats, so different times...
  2. Walsall turkish midfielder

    About 4 years too early for me unfortunately. Junior Bent would perhaps be the smallest player I've seen....until we sign the Turkish Messi...
  3. Walsall turkish midfielder

    I watched this guy play for Dulwich Hamlet a few times a few years back. Very skilful, admittedly against 7th tier defenders. Gobby little f*cker though, gave the linesman a lot of abuse. Also the smallest player I've ever seen.
  4. This may be an unpopular view but...

    Well I've been supporting City for a similar amount of time to the original poster, so this season has probably been slightly above average, League position-wise. Obviously there will be highs and lows in such a season - probably more polarised than usual this time. Off the field, average attendances are nearly 3 times larger than when I first started coming (95/96). I don't feel any closer or less close to the club owners than over most of the previous 20 years.
  5. Whisky and Cola

    Footballers are often not the most sophisticated on the drinks front. I remember watching a clip of John Terry (ok, an extreme example) giving a tour of his house and he had a bar in the basement games room. He had optics above the bar dispensing the cheapest brands of vodka/gin/scotch you can find.
  6. my ticket now been taken
  7. 1 adult terrace ticket going for face value. Will be in a pub near the ground from about 1230. PM me if interested
  8. Best footballer you have seen live

    Your memory can often play tricks on you and you can think someone was a lot better (or worse) based on their reputation. The 2 greatest players I've seen live were probably Hagi and Scifo. Though they certainly weren't at their peak when I watched them. Very jealous of anyone who saw Maradona play for Napoli '85-89
  9. Fulham Away / Pubs etc (Merged)

    I normally try the Dukes Head and Bricklayers Arms (real ale place, if you like that sort of thing). I wrongly mentioned on here the Bricklayers was closed before our last game, so apologies to them for any lost business...
  10. Unpopular opinions

    City could probably charge a bit more for the middle bits of the West stand, given some people seem happy to pay. Would help subsidise other cheaper parts of the ground.
  11. Unexciting Signings

    I don't think Dele Adebola's signing was too well received as he was getting on a bit and seemed to be on the way down. But did well for us.
  12. Wigan tickets on sale now online

    Thanks Adam. Did exactly the same this morning and worked perfectly. Took me about 2 mins. Hopefully all the glitches are sorted
  13. Wigan tickets on sale now online

    It wouldn't let me buy any tickets when I tried an hour or so ago. I was able to select seats but when it came to buy them it said my allocation for this game was zero. I'm a member. I'll try again later....
  14. Big Sam gets the England Job

    Big Sam then...I think he refers to himself as that. I can't imagine he cares much about being called Fat Sam. Least of all by the likes of me. I quite liked Roy/Woy. I think that nickname was more affectionate than disrespectful.
  15. Big Sam gets the England Job

    Before I (sort of) lay into Fat Sam, I do think he's probably the best man for the job, from the rather limited pool on offer. I just don't really like him much. This may be my perception, but he seems the sort of guy that claims all the credit when he wins, yet absolves himself of blame whenever he loses. Regarding some of the comments above about him not being afraid to drop favoured players and chose those on form, isn't this a guy who stuck with Kevin Nolan at WH when he was past it, because of previous loyalties? Just the one example I know... On the plus side, despite the absolute shambles of the Iceland game, if Sam can get us to defend a bit better from crosses, which i think he can do, we should be a QF/SF team.
