I heard about this but thought it was cobblers...

As for their Ultras, created an atmos for 15 mins after they scored each time.

Thought their 'ultras' sang a fair amount but in no way were they particularly loud, in fact I expected much better.
When we sang we were very loud and first half was brilliant. Second half was alot quieter from us as people were frustrated at what they were watching. Proper celebration for Carew's equaliser though.
All in all good day out we seemed to take over on the walk upto the ground.

Thought the closing of shops seemed excessive, but then saw some absolute tit try to nick a can of Super Strength Kestrel from a newsagents, then attempt to hit the shopkeeper, before storming out and smashing up some shelves on his way. Hope he wasn't a West Ham fan. Properly embarrassing.
Had the same problem, even the Co-Op by the station was closed. Found about 10 cans of lager in the newsagents opposite and was just taking them to the counter when the owner came over and told us they weren't serving alcohol until after 6pm. So we went home!

You always seem to have a lot of information on the 'activities' of some of the opposition fans whoever we are playing.

I was within 50 yards of the Sailor and never saw a thing...and walked to the station around 8 pm

You sure Squire ??

Didn't seem that sort of atmosphere and i was drinking with a load of Palace.

Bad Darts if true

Both Green and Almunia should be expected to make the save, but the latter was a bit let down by the acreage of space provided to the scorer anyway.

Seemed like he had 2-3 seconds to wait for the pass - time enough to find the target. Its the danger of Linda going upfield once too often; he was nowhere near the play when that goal went in.

Their 'cup final' against us added 5000 to their average gate, so far this season. There was just in excess of 20,000 in the ground, which, no disrespec,t is a touch old and tired.

Friends who are regulars say that it was definitely an event to have a visit from us. Yesterday's attendance bettered anything they've had for a few years.

And that was without giving us there full allocation.

Have to agree with the palace comments there, we played so much hoofball yesterday i found it horrible to watch. That was total Allardyce football yesterday and i wont be too happy if it carries on.

Exactly the same mate, got back and straight to a BBQ, and then out to a few pubs and clubs after. I feel ****ing destroyed today!

I was stood in the 2nd row back on the far right, by the family stand. That side was a complete joke as far as atmosphere is concerned, couldn't hear anything from their other side either but could see them clapping and jumping so i guess it's just bad acoustics. Thought our support was decent though, got proper loud at times. Tevez chants were a bit muggy, i think it started off with some ***** in Spoons - everyone joined in once so they thought they were now songwriters and chanted it every 2 minutes.

Was a proper laugh outside Spoons, took over the whole street and having the kick about with the plastic footballs. Cheers to the bloke who let us buy a few of his Carlings cos all the outside shops were closed, shame it was 2 years out of date :lol:

The last 15-20 minutes of the first half we played good football and kept possession well, and they rarely got out of their own half towards the end of the first half, but in the 2nd like you said we reverted to hoofball, and like you, I don't want to see it.
