Re: For The sake of Nostalgia

Due to buildings behind there wasn't any scope to increase the nort and south stands. They both made use of the space being double decker and the nort stand upper tier actually cantilevered over the lower tier which was unusual. The east stand could have been built to a decent size but 45000 was abo...

Re: Protests against the board being planned

They had started to turn in our favour but back to form now.

Would anyone here trust their well earned money with GSB to invest? Anyone? Sean Whetstone?...

Re: Olympic Stadium Discussion and Questions

As an ex-electrician cable ties are for tying cables to say metal tray work Not to make sure the metal framework of a temp stand holding thousands of people doesn't come undone. I have photo of way back when we moved to the bowl hole that shown some of the scaffolding is on blocks No doubt if anyth...

Re: Lucas Pérez

All this talk about him being worth millions and Barcelona wanting him sadly doesn't surprise me.

We are an awful club who never try to be anything other than also rans. Players know it and the attitude pervades the place. Stinks the place out.

We need a real root and branch change.

Re: Possible Takeover Bid ?

That's a fair logic and damn shame. Especially as it's clearly not easy to get rid of that retractable seating, it's not even easy to use it as retractable seating! I dunno, if you use all that space wisely, there could be something there. It would cost an insane amount, but if you made the stands ...

Man united have asked to install ‘safe standing’ @ OT.
That would be a step forward for the sh*t bowl.
It would.

They picked up on the junior OSB story from here. No question.
They've got a file on each of us. Once World domination has been achieved we will be first in the firing line.

We are talking, just. But I go and see her younger sister (Wealdstone) as she is only 20mins from home You could have a bit of both. Seeing one and then the other... Unfortunately you'll never see them at exactly the same time unless there is a fantastic cup draw. Then all your dreams will come at ...

Re: good old days..

CH that pic of the police control room so reminds me of when I was going around 85 to when south stand was built. Would sit near there on WS Lower if took my mum. (she's still going, but not to matches).

Rest of the time I stood on North Bank. Regret never trying south bank.

Re: Protests against the board being planned

Remember to stay classy. I'm no fan of GSB you can tell from my posts.

But a nice watch and a hot tub, even a helicopter for a business man doesn't add to our desire for them to leave our club.

Re: Protests against the board being planned

The 'Stay Classy'., comment is particularly good and as already has been, should be promoted further.

It's catchy, helps to give fans something to adhere to and helps keep the moral high ground. We could 'stay classy' all season but increase the amount of fans protesting. Great stuff :thup:

For all of us turning 50 this year, and Happy Birthday Chalks I forgot to say, we were all around the time when it was always kicking off but just (for me and my mates anyway) a little too young.

Re: ⚽ Manchester City v West Ham United: Match thread (09/02)

I like what I'm hearing about Bowen wanting the ball in training. An odd thing for me to say about a professional footballer but at the recent West Brom game some players didn't show for passes and throw ins. Like a hot potato really. I guess a fear has crept in of cocking up. Well I think this is t...
