What if you're not in the Bobby Moore Stand?
You can walk round most of the stadium, unless you're in the posh seats or the bit next to the away fans

But anyway, that's great news....although I hope the queues are manageable as they are normally (justifiably) enormous

Re: It's not just Man Utd fans....

The axis of delusion runs from N17 through Birmingham (Villa Park) and Merseyside (the blue side of Stanley Park) up to Tyneside (Newcastle). In my experience it's fans of these clubs who have the most warped view of their own club's importance in the grand scheme of things. I'd add Forest fans to ...

Re: Brian Clough: 15 years on (non WHU)

I went to University in Nottingham in the late 80's/early 90s, and Cloughie was quite rightly held up as some kind of deity. The only issue with this was that many of the Forest fans I met were as deluded as the average Spurs fan with regard to their place in the pecking order, although I suspect th...

Re: TV fixtures late again

I wish they'd hurry up as I'm waiting to book flights for the Tottenham game. If it gets moved to Friday or Monday I'm screwed if I book flights without knowing

Re: Welcome to the new KUMB Forum

I noticed the other day that i had forgotten to change the timezone settings for Summer Time being in place so I'd been an hour slow for a few months (catches me out every time :oops: ) I notice now in the Board preferences that you can set specific geographic time zones. Does this mean it changes a...

Re: Welcome to the new KUMB Forum

After the initial shock and playing around it a bit, I really like it. I am using chrome on a windows pc. I thought the font looked smaller, but I still have a window open with the old format and it is pretty much identical so it must be an illusion caused by the change of font or colour scheme I li...

Re: Buying A New Television - 2 -

OLED TV Owners - Did you calibrate your TV screen ? No....I have read that it is better for picture quality but I've not yet seen that it is better against burn-in, and a saddo like me has read a lot of forums about all the tech I get. Playing on vivid mode is probably best avoided though as that i...

Re: Buying A New Television - 2 -

I have an LG OLED 65C7 and it is outstanding. Go for the 65" if you can, you won't regret it With regard to burn-in, yes, it can happen, but it is generally for those who watch exclusively CNN or Sky News or similar for hours at an end with infobars that are always in the same place, or play exactly...

Re: Little things that irritate you

That's interesting. I've heard of these tests so may well have to try one. It's well worth it. My 8 year old daughter was sneezing a lot and for a long time and so we did this for her too (actually on reflection that was the longest 15 minutes of my life - trying to get her to sit still and not scr...

Re: Little things that irritate you

Sileage or rapeseed does it for me... absolute nightmare. Constant sneezing and running nose. Eyes stinging too sometimes. Funny thing is, I never had hay fever until I moved to Kent. I've had hayfever every summer since the age of 5 (lived in Kent too but I don't think it's linked!), and I'm in my...

Re: Away fans in home end

Headingley, yesterday; England and Australia fans happily enjoying one of the greatest test matches of all time together. Change the sport and it would've been the scene of a riot. What's wrong with football? Having been to a couple of Football World Cups there is a lot of fans mixed in together to...

Buying a set of cleats to use on my road bike and then falling off at a set of traffic lights, twice, as i tried to unclip myself from the pedals. I looked like a beetle on its back trying to get up! I unknowingly had one of the two screws fall out of one of my SPD cleats the other day, so as I twi...

Re: Ticket Touts fined and in Jail

I've used touts on a handful of occasions, when normal means of getting tickets have failed. For example I went out to the Japan World Cup and had official tickets for a few games but then fancied seeing a couple more, and also at the Athens Olympics. The touts both in Japan and in Athens were alway...

Hop Suisse!

In the ten years of living here I haven't been to a single Swiss League match so I won't pretend to know anything about him, but now I have Swiss nationality I feel I should be very excited.

Re: Who was West Hams worst ever Centre Back

Did Mitchell Thomas ever play centre back for us? I know he was mostly on the left but occasionally played in the centre I think.

Anyway, he was truly appalling

Re: The summer transfer window 2019 thread

When Maguire came on as a sub in one of his first games for Hull, he looked and played like a pub team player, I couldn't believe how bad he was. The next season I was looking forward to seeing him again for the comedy value but he seemed to have transformed into a ball carrying centre back and the ...
