  1. Hide it in your sock, then put it back on the coke bottle once safely inside the ground
  2. Someone needs to teach the squad the words to the National Anthem.....embarrassing !!!
  3. It can't fly due to a large elsatoplast wrapped around it.
  4. Good post. I too recently attended my first games at the newly renovated AG and indeed my first visit for at least 10 yrs (Birmingham and Leeds matches). The stadium is very impressive and I cant add much more to what the poster has said, except to say that nothing much has changed on the pitch......same old sh*t. Rushed passes, basic defensive errors, no creativity and a CF who huffs and puffs a lot without much end product....oh and good to see we still have the habit of losing big games at home. Still not to be deterred I will make the 2 hour journey from home next season on a regular basis. Off to watch Swansea vs Man City this afternoon...should be a few goals to see.
  5. (referring to Davefevs original post) Of course it could all mean that SL realises what a poisoned chalice the Premier League actually is. Apart from a huge pot of cash there are very few positives to being a bottom 6 PL club to where we are now (top 8 Championship club). At the moment we have reasonable financial stability, large crowds, a manager whom is in SL's debt (due to not sacking him on a couple of occasions), and a team that can sometimes compete with the big boys in the cup and top end of the Championship. The PL would cause huge changes to be made. Not many of our current players are good enough so would need replacing. That includes large fees (Tammy would cost at least £30 million) to buy players a huge increase in wages (2-3 yr contracts) for the new recruits and parity for the current playing staff. Straight away the pot of gold is gone on increased wages and new players. If we went up then come October when we are struggling there will be calls for LJ, and his staff to be replaced. He will have to be paid off (probably a 2 -3 yr premier wage contract) and a more expensive replacement brought in (Moyes / Pearce won't come cheap). On the playing side the Championship is far more exciting to watch than the PL. Yes it will be nice to see the top 6 at AG but the other 12 clubs will come here playing 8 men behind the ball to go home with a point. We were all frustrated with Leeds time wasting, that will be the norm for away sides in the PL. Yes clubs such as B'mouth and Brighton have made a success of it but there are dozens of others that have been to the 'promised land' and are now languishing way below the PL without a penny to scratch their proverbial s with. Maybe just maybe SL realises the huge sea change that promotion would bring and is content, for the time being, trending in the top half of the Championship with 20,000 gates each week.
  6. Hit it first time, left foot 1-1.....what was he thinking. Why is Taylor's attempted lob not on the highlights, that too was a decent chance.
  7. Weren't they sniffing around LJ after they sacked Pulis, last season ?
  8. They did press us well and did their jobs as per their game plan. Unfortunately we did not look good under pressure with sloppy, careless passing and cheaply losing possession. Not being able to play/perform under pressure has to be a worry going forward.
  9. Always amazes me..people have 7 days a week to drink beer whenever they want.But then pay £20-30 to watch a football match and miss a large chunk of it to drink beer. It makes absolutely no sense to me.
  10. I still have the programme from this game and they were the only 'famous' names that played. Brazil has mentioned several times on 'air' that he made his league debut at AG. I think we got battered 4-1 or 5-1 on aggregate in the Youth Cup final. I do remember AG being pretty full for the return leg.
  11. Crass defending, turned his back on the ball, left his arm 'hanging' to make himself bigger. Ball struck arm and was diverted way off it's course (looked like it was going over the bar). Has to be a penalty.
  12. I too was going to get a season ticket this year. However travelling from South Wales for each game is not really an option (particularly Saturdays when I will have to get up extra early to visit the grand children on the wrong side of Bristol prior to the match). I will probably get to about 16 home games so have decided to buy tickets for each match, that way there is no pressure to try to get to every game. Yes the number of evening games also affected this decision. This way I can also get to sit in different areas of the ground and also take advantage of any £15 games.
  13. There's always the Nicky Maynard one if Hunt isn't your thing.....spooky looks like the same pen has been used.
  14. Thought they were superb. Switched over after Kanes goal to watch Madrid being humiliated. A great night of football on tv.
