  1. Straying into the realms of speculation here, but any offer of settlement from WMP would, I imagine, include the caveat that it is in settlement of all the outstanding claims (those 10 supporters from what I have read on here). Nothing stopping a counteroffer, or back 'n' forth, from the supporters' side or, perhaps, individuals leaving the class and seeking to go it alone (quite possibly v risky). Additional reading, for all you diehards, is Part 36 of the Civil Procedure Rules - have fun with that Sounds like our lot got sound advice and acted sensibly upon it. Sadly, we don't live in a perfect world where legal costs are minimal/have the tab picked up from elsewhere.
  2. Thing is, any court award might not be far in excess of what is offered by way of settlement, whilst the (legal) costs implications of potentially having to fund your side's lawyers and the others', in the event of a loss, can be eye-watering. More than likely that costs figure dwarfs damages, in any event. A lot of competing interests at stake, although having a serving police officer in support of the claim must have made it an incredibly difficult decision as to whether 'stick or twist'. Often though, the spectre of costs can be ruinous to a claim, so fairplay in extracting anything from WMP. Ultimately, if these Claimants have gone about securing, systemic lasting change, then who can put a price on that and that arguably is real-life recompense, in contrast to just (relatively insignificant) pounds in the bank. That's the kind of discussion I would be having with my clients.
  3. Not if the policing & regs are causative of the drop... Does the EPL have the lowest amount of arrests, because individuals fear jeopardising something (their season ticket) that costs a heck of a lot, or, do richer people just brawl less, or, do the gendarmes just see poorer people as an easier catch...
  4. On the topic of Dani Rodridgues, Velicka's wasn't great either from what I remember
  5. Given that pitiful attendance, perhaps now’s the time to have a sweepstake on their upcoming date of administration
  6. This dude is on a different level - he's 18 ffs, and he's not even an absolute unit (a la Caulker etc.), so that tells you one thing...a totally class proposition!!!
  7. Spot the mistake on the official site MEMORABLE FIXTURE Stoke City 0-2 Bristol City Friday, January 1st 2019 Sky Bet Championship Scorers: Benik Afobe 39', Callum O'Dowda 81' Att: 23,912
  8. Expect WMP will be given counsel’s advice to settle, to spare any undue reputational damage, if nothing else. From what I’ve read on here, would be v surprised to see this one make it all the way to Final Hearing.
  9. I do miss the bullet pointed pre-match pressers
  10. He is, indeed, very skinny.
  11. World class use of the word ‘vomitory’ right there!
  12. Leeds on Sky again next week, ha!
