You really are having a bad weekend, aren't you? And it is such a looooooong weekend, too!

You're not a Boomtown Rats fan, are you? Hope you like Mondays!

Thanks for reminding me. :angry:

First Hull game I'll miss at Wakey in absolutely yonks but I'm afraid I'm looking after number 1.


         SL Steve Prescott Man of Steel 2016 - Danny Houghton  SL Top Gun 2016/2017 - Marc Sneyd (83%/89% goal success)

         SL Hit Man 2016/2017 - Danny Houghton (1,289/1,123 tackles)  SL Club of the Year 2016 - Hull FC

         SL Coach of the Year 2016 - Lee Radford   RL Challenge Cup Winners 2016/2017 - Hull FC

 

                                                                      All in all, not a bad couple of years, I suppose...

"Warning! Steve May alert!"

I did feel my fingers strangely drawn to the 'Z' key as I typed.

Sunderland... oh wow!


With the best, thats a good bit of PR, though I would say the Bedford team, theres, like, you know, 13 blokes who can get together at the weekend to have a game together, which doesnt point to expansion of the game. Point, yeah go on!

:D Apologies but you are prone to the odd sensitive reaction on the crowd front. :ph34r:

Not the best by any means and there is a 'visual' problem when stewards are told, apparently, to not enter the fray once it becomes a public order offence.

 

We're a long way from the dark days of the 70s and 80s - and, as ever, no sport should be complacent - but it's not good.

Bluddy Targers now six points clear of third placed Watford with only four games left. Deary me.

 

I can see the gloryhunting season pass queues forming already.

It flies in the face of popular opinion, but I went to the game Saturday, took my 4 year old and every Millwall fan we came into contact with was good spirited, felt more like an RL event than a football match. I think the vast majority of both sets of fans were enjoying "the day".

Shame the idiots stole the limelight, can't help but think for the vast majority in the Millwall end it was probably there first and last game of the season, unless there 32k there on Saturday have a rota for games at the Den!

The Millwall fans are clearly a bunch of pussies.

 

Not one of them, unlike our Geordie friends, attempted to punch a police horse.

A group of Newcastle fans caused severe disruption to an amateur match when on their way to watch their side against Wigan Athletic. A lot of locals were deeply upset and offended.

Wigan Cosmos, poor stewarding/police work the away coaches arrive next to the pitches were the Sunday League teams arrive.

 

To be fair to Newcastle they've come good as a club, replacing damaged nets, the stolen match ball and there hosting Wigan Cosmos for a game against NUFC staff at St James Park once the season is over.  Doesn't make right what happened, but at least Newcastle are making the effort.

I wonder if the re-brand matters to the Cardiff fans now?

 

I know that sounds snarky but I don't know how to write it more sincerely! Chuffed to see the Welsh derby in the Prem next year though.

I think most fans have effectively ignored it.

 I don't have great knowledge about this. However: -

 - From reading comments in the Welsh press, the club is routinely referred to as the Bluebirds.

 - From watching tv footage; the away strip is still blue and white and that's what the majority of the fans have purchased.

They are still called the Bluebirds.

 

The ones I know don't care.

 

Swansea v Cardiff was tasty back in the day.  Opposing fans even had a battle at a Glamorgan cricket match once.

To be fair, that's the trouble with supporting them. No shortage of morons.

 

I know, I lived in Cardiff for a bit. I worked with a few who supported them and they were great lads. But out and about in the city centre on match day, oh dear, some of them.

 

That said, I suppose you could say that about most football teams supporters; the majority are the good ones, but they have their bad ones.
