Re: New Corner Stands

I’m pleased our disabled fans have got somewhere decent to watch the game. The rest of it I can’t pretend to be that fussed about. My seat is comfortable, out of the rain, fairly cheap and points towards a Premier League football pitch. The tap water temperature obsession isn’t a deal breaker, and I...

Re: Crouch confirms.....

Some people actually think he chose to get appendicitis and have an operation.

Anyway, as above, he's had a great career and seems like a nice guy but obviously the main thing is he signed a short term contract with us and illness prevented him from making an impact so let's hammer him.

I sometimes wonder if Sean has a painful early childhood memory of losing a junior football match due to his team not having a keeper and now he's destined to spend the rest of his life ensuring that never happens again. A bit like Graham Alexander and that penalty miss for Scunthorpe.
