  1. Will they be using the same tannoy they had at the old stadium?
  2. All these designs are interesting, but aren't the club looking towards a simple basic image, easy to replicate on merchandise and unique to us? Something like Swansea and Wolves have. I'm not so sure the new robin is what we'll end up with.

    Imagine the overreaction if Messi had scored 'that' Tomlin goal. No not the penalty! I doubt Messi could kick it that high.
  4. Cheepskate! You'd have thought with his money he'd buy you a pint each.
  5. Underage drinking is definately increasing!

    New law changes revealed by IFAB over the weekend concentrate on five rules which could drastically affect key areas of the game. Deliberate handball? Attackers in a wall for a free-kick? What are the new rules and how significant are they? Former Premier League referee Dermot Gallagher explained to Sky Sports News how the new regulations could affect the top leagues from June 1. 1. Accidental handball goal won't stand Goals scored which have hit a player's hand, deliberate or not, will no longer stand. Gallagher said of the change: "It will be significant as we will no longer see a goal scored hitting the arm. "80 per cent of the handballs that referees give are not deliberate, but because a player gains a material advantage. Taking the word deliberate out will eradicate that." Some ambiguity remains and Gallagher added: "We will still have the problem of asking 'has he made himself bigger, has he put his arms in an unnatural position?' "There will still be the arm close to the body that will hit the arm and the referee will deny a penalty." 2. No rebounds from penalties One of the changes Gallagher believes will have a big bearing on how we look at football is play stopping for a restart if a penalty is saved or hits the post. This means players will no longer line up on the edge of the area or attempt a rebound. Gallagher said: "We've seen Manchester United's Paul Pogba this year score a penalty from his own rebound and on Saturday the Arsenal penalty was saved and the players chased it down and the ball was still alive. "Now if it hits the post or the goalkeeper saves and it comes back out to the forward, the game will be stopped, there'll be no second chance." 3. Substituted players can leave the field anywhere To stop time-wasting, when a player is taken off they will no longer have to leave the field at the halfway line and can leave the pitch at the nearest point. Gallagher said: "Some of the teams hanging on in the past have made a substitute when they are the furthest player from the technical area. This will no longer apply. "Whether they decide to go to the nearest point remains to be seen, but it's up to the referee to invoke that." 4. No attacking players in the wall This rule prohibits attacking players standing in the wall when a free-kick is being taken, a tactic increasingly employed in recent years. Attackers will be made to stand at least one metre from the wall, and is aimed at stopping defenders being moved out of the way, such as Alexandre Lacazette's free-kick for Arsenal in their recent game against Bournemouth. 5. Coaches will receive cards Currently, coaches only receive verbal warnings for misconduct, but the change will see them receiving yellows and reds as players do. It will likely be similar to the EFL law adopted last year, where managers can also receive a one-game suspension. Nuno Espirito Santo's eccentric touchline celebration for Wolves' 4-3 win against Leicester could be a yellow card from next season.

    If already covered, please delete. Just heard of the rule change for next season. If the penalty kick hits the post or rebounds off the keeper, goal kick is given. That's one way of putting an end to the encroachment farce. Good move in my opinion.
  9. Don't the people who throw stuff realise they are on cctv?
  10. Do you sit just in front of the Directors box?
  11. Gone are the days that teams came here expecting to win, thank goodness! A defeat for Brum would not be good, and increase the gap between us. I expect them to go for the draw and will be happy to keep it 0-0. Hopefully we get an early goal and they then have to make a game of it!
  12. We got are staydeeyum we got are staydeeyum etc....
  13. But he was right! The Evening Post fireworks night 'regularly' had Eastville packed to the rafters, with many more locked outside!
