  1. Great respect to the fans who travelled. Mucky Friday night 200 miles from home. Good noise on tv. All the best to those sat on coaches now.
  2. How many times is this loon going to say ‘rising power in the west’.
  3. Didn't think I could get more depressed after yesterday's Somerset catastrophe, but there you go.
  4. Thanks for taking the trouble to post these. Couldn’t get to this one and always enjoy seeing fans photos.
  5. To those questioning the positioning of the disabled area in front of section 82, try to understand this. Disabled folk- like my 16 year old son- are exactly the same as you and me. Exactly the same. They have exactly the same rights and should have the same opportunities. That includes the right to choose where in a football stadium they want to watch the match from. You and I have 2 sides, 2 ends, 4 corners, high or low to choose from and, where humanly possible, those with disabilities or special needs should have the same chances. Which is why modern, well designed stadia- which is what AG now is- has several areas in different parts of the ground, and no longer seeks to coral disabled supporters in 1 space. And this isn’t PC or anything, it’s just normal. I would add that in 50 years of watching football and can’t remember experiencing or hearing about a single incidence where the behaviour of a disabled supporter has detrimentally affected my experience or that of any other able bodied fan.
  6. Spot on. I’ve watched football at home and abroad for 50 years and been in many European stadiums with flares etc, and the atmospheres been poor to non existent. Partly, I suspect, because most of the ‘ultras’ actually have little or no interest in the actual football. Standing topless with your back to the pitch while purporting to conduct a sort of paramilitary chanting is not being a footy fan. Just one of the lessons that yesterday’s muppet has to learn.
  7. MacGregorface has given Wright a 6- one more than Szmodics.
  8. Always depressing when you read “it’s not about money but a difference in opinion.”
  9. Bit depressed yesterday, far more optimistic this morning. Then journey home from work. 3 hours stuck in pitch black railway tunnel before rescued by emergency services- wooden ladder job, 1 by 1 , then half mile walk in tunnel. Now holed up in London Premier Inn. May realistically miss tomorrow’s game, but not as gutting as not being home with wife, as it’s our silver wedding! Not gonna worry about lack of a Webster replacement until next week.
  10. Absolutely no problem with the club, save that we are not as big, shiny or wealthy as some other clubs.
  11. Agree that rather lick our wounds and get no one than flash 2.5- 5 million on a punt that no one really wants.
  12. Went to euro 2016 in France with tickets for England Iceland in Nice. After that, will always prefer the no ticket option.
  13. But if you buy, at whatever price or deal structure, you own the asset, with all that holds for future profit or loss, gain or risk. With a loan, you're really just buying the risk. We get his play and goals - unless he gets injured. Arsenal can't play him - but probably would not have played him much anyway - and they have a chance of their player developing with experience he would not otherwise get - unless he gets injured. Either way we simply hand him back after a year. I see the point of paying all a loan players wages, along with all the associated costs - NI, medical, insurance premiums (expensive, no doubt), but a big fee? Think the premier league clubs should be ashamed of themselves, frankly.
