  1. Yes exactly. They are highly paid and pampered and people think they should just be able to turn up and function because of this. Yes many of us have to do this too, but not with thousands of eyes watching and social media ready to rip you apart as easily as it builds you up too. As I said lots can influence people's lives, good and bad, not just your manager or personal injury.
  2. Sorry. But how it's changed huh? Obviously it all had to start after Hillsborough, penning people in like animals was so wrong, but like many things of their time was accepted. I'm sure there were many other risks too, fire risks like Bradford. wooden constructions, no real fire escapes. Not many stewards to help you, we had the Police to batter us and they did. Again this was accepted. Toilet facilities were appalling, dirty, broken, no water to wash you hands never mind hot water, now our biggest complaint is the driers have cold air! Waste of time putting loo rolls in, as previously mentioned they were all thrown at the goals anyway! When I went to Newport County one evening they didn't even have a female toilet in the away end, I had to be escorted around the pitch, shown down a pitch dark corridor and climb over empty beer crates and wave away spiders webs to use a loo!!! Is now safe, clean and a perfect view of the game from every angle. But it isn't the same. How can it be that watching us at the bottom of the fourth division was better in a way than the atmosphere in the Championship?
  3. Yes but the tape wouldn't stick then, but I'm willing to experiment!
  4. Old. squashed in the Eastend, couldn't see a thing at times, had to get there at least an hour early to join in with the singing. Huge surges forward but always managed to return to back to where we started, stood next to the same people week after week without numbers telling us where to be. Goal mouths filled with loo roll and no grass anywhere in the goalmouth from October to April, penalty spot repainted at HT by groundsman. Often edgy and dangerous at times, atmosphere electric. Used to really look forward to matches all week, and banter in school, college, workplaces. Thats why I fell in love with the game, live football you could see, smell, taste, touch and hear.
  5. Like many things it's probably psychological. I just wonder how sticky it has to be to keep skin and muscles taught...sorts the men from the boys when that is ripped off after the games.* *Please don't tell me that it just soaks off easily in the showers afterwards...I like to think of Flinty flinching as someone rips his tape off!
  6. No more than anyone ever does on here. I'm just applying common sense and saying it might not be as black and white as suggested, not just either serious injury or poor management.
  7. I think you are looking too closely at a player purely from a footballing point of view. He is a human being with all sorts that can have an affect on his life too. Think a little wider maybe?
  8. He was resting his players, wrapping them in cotton wool for the game today wasn't he. I guess he made the right call. What if several had picked up injuries or suspensions for today's game, the fans would have slaughtered him. Anyway, I haven't checked but didnt someone on here say the 'lesser' team he fielded was pretty much the same as the one who held Man C to a draw in the FA Cup earlier this season. Also the fringe players would be busting a gut to impress for a playoff start wouldn't they.
  9. Just want to say, you don't post often enough. Always a gem and guaranteed to make me smile. Thanks.
  10. Well how many people do you think are about at the moment, and on a Bank Holiday?!!!
  11. I went out. Then I had texts telling me! I was half hoping I was being wound up at the time, but on reflection as I said earlier happy for Huddersfield. It certainly gives us hope seeing Brighton and Huddersfield promoted.
  12. And Burton
  13. Hasn't been good has it, teams too similarly matched or just too much resting on it.
  14. I think this could backfire on him, he basically said he's off or made it read like this. I expect he thought people would be saying 'please don't go' but instead he's mostly getting 'bye then', at least on here. Lots of players have responded, weird if they know he's staying. Surely he won't be here next season?
  15. Would like Huddersfield to do it as it would give us hope, but I haven't ever been there and like them better than Reading so don't want to lose them either. Reading I see as quite plastic for some reason. Didn't like my first visit there very much even though it's an easy journey, and we were robbed up there. So Reading to get rid of them or Huddersfield because I like them, I'm genuinely torn.
