Winchester Royal I remember going up to the Bescot, quite early in a Division 2 season, when they were top and we were second. We had a perfectly good goal ruled out, apparently because Martin Butler was climbing on somebody's back. They then scored two goals and Jimmy Mcintyre got a 90th minute consolation. We then lost to them in the playoff final. Somebody crocked Tony Rougier and Howard Webb did nothing about it. I recall him having only reffed a handful of league games at that pint.
A couple of years later, we'd lost three consecutive games 3-0, to Palace, Stoke and Wimbledon. The next game was away at Walsall and we had no confidence at all. Nicky Shorey got a late free kick to equalise for us.

floyd__streete Don't get me wrong I'd love to be there but the Black Country accent is so abhorent to me that I become a homicidal maniac if I ever hear it.
So I'll just stay at home, listen to it on the radio and make msyelf a Kipper Tie.

Green For some reason Walsall were always my team on Ultimate Soccer Manager. Dunno why, always liked an underdog I guess.

MoorgateRoyal 'Where's your caravan?' being chanted at Zigor Aranalde for the majority of an away game at the Bescot, and also giving Jimmy Walker some stick for being short. I seem to recall Walker being pretty cool about it, clapping the fans after the game and laughing along with it all. I think the game was a shit 0-0.

Exactly right. Which is what my earlier chant was a reference to. Walker was a very good sport about it all, as you say.

The Cap Better consider attending this one, after being named and shamed in the email flyer from the club.
The Royals secured safe passage to the FA Cup 4th Round last night thanks to a thrilling 5-2 win against Huddersfield Town. We noticed you didn't attend the game yesterday, so to avoid missing out on all the drama again, read on for ticket details for our 4th Round tie with Walsall...
Blimey, it's very rare that I miss a home game but, like a few others, I thought I'd park up at home and listen to Tellor and Mick last night. Only to find that the attendance police have rumbled me. The joys of having a season ticket.
