  1. Lived in Leeds for a few years. Like Newcastle, their fans are no more or less passionate than ours. V big city mind, and you can’t overstate the importance of only having one team which the whole city gets behind.
  2. I put that poster up outside my sixth form - Churchill Comprehensive- and got threatened with suspension for ‘promoting commercial activity’. Would have got away with it had I not worn my scarf on the deadline day. Particularly galling as the Head was a City season ticket holder.
  3. Best line re the Maddison saga - 'why on earth would an agent go on holiday in January'. Quite.
  4. As an aside, and when the post window dust has settled, I’d be grateful if one of the youngsters could post an index for the emojis. I get those with faces - it’s the expressions, yes?- and the one that looks like a turd, but, as a chap in my 6th decade, I’m pretty lost when the assorted vegetables come out. Can’t be difficult, I’m sure- and I’m prepared for eye rolling- but I’m currently distracted by the stress of having to download my Euro 20 tickets via an app, so any guidance would be appreciated. Cheers dears.
  5. Blimey, yes. Elm Park had atmosphere but the view from the away terrace was diabolical. I recall anther dodgy away trip by football train special to promotion rivals York. Think it was around the same time?
  6. Interesting the inevitable focus on how much we’ve spent, without noting that we’ve raked in about £80m gross in 2 years by selling most of our best players, a process that appears ongoing, viz Brownhill.
  7. Think that SL made a line in the sand decision before the start of the season and he’ll stick with it, whatever. Top 6 or LJ will be gone. I thought this was a bit harsh originally, given the big sales and the need to rebuild after the summer, but now think it’s fair. I think LJ would accept it now as well.
  8. Can’t think of a club less suited to the special one as Spurs. He’s all strong defensive spine, discipline and organisation. Spurs fans grow up to expect open, free flowing football. They often don’t get it, but that has to be the aim, or their fans just won’t buy it. Like Pauli’s at Ashton Gate- just never going to work.
  9. Modern idea of efficiency. Supermarkets round me in London the same. Buy a paper, got to use a card. But why should a spend of £1.50 require a (effectively two) banking transaction?
  10. Didn't think I could get more depressed after yesterday's Somerset catastrophe, but there you go.
  11. Thanks for taking the trouble to post these. Couldn’t get to this one and always enjoy seeing fans photos.
  12. 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.
  13. 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.
  14. MacGregorface has given Wright a 6- one more than Szmodics.
  15. Always depressing when you read “it’s not about money but a difference in opinion.”
