Re: Opposition fans back from the game

Broadly, all of the West Mids fans I've met are decent. Villa fans tend a bit towards arrogance, but all have been through countless wringers and shitty owners and crap football to give them a sense of perspective and a sense of humour.

Re: Opposition fans back from the game

Everytime I've been to the hawthorns they've been a class act. Plenty of friendly banter in the vine pre and post match and definitely without any sense of entitlement. Best club in the Midlands all day. Understatement imo, they're possibly the most likeable club (or at least fan base - the ridicul...

Re: Opposition fans back from the game

While I do have a lot of time for WBA (nearest ground to my house, PhD students have been fans, Cyrille Regis etc), I can't help but laugh at this slice of history; https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zqOp0oxkRks Final game of 1990-91 season, branded a toga party a few months earlier by fans who were c...

Re: BFTG WBA

Also, from the Cardiff game yeah, it was just so much fun to watch. sure, we'll not reproduce it every week, sure, sometimes it won't come off but that level and style of performance will just be so much more more enjoyable to watch, win lose or draw. Can't help but think the atmosphere and the offe...

Re: BFTG WBA

Good game that, very similar to Cardiff in the first half but WBA stepped up a gear in the second and we were under the cosh for long spells. "Keep the shape, track your man" was the mantra of those spells. Very disciplined, for the most part, and not riding into silly tackles, for the mos...

Re: BFTG - Cardiff

Anyone else seen the replays of the pen? Looked a total dive from Yiadom, not what I want to see really. Spose there could have been a fraction of contact but Morrison certainly looked peeved. Live they showed different angles and one showed Morrison clearly knocking his knee out. Did Yiadoms flop ...

Re: BFTG - Wycombe Away

Penalties -keeper very good, no poor penalties from our players. Think that's the first time I've seen a RFC team win a shootout. Will take that. West Ham in the league cup? Sept 11, 2001 I was working in a biker pub that night, as the local 'crew' put on tasteless songs about Arabs and bombers.
