    Steer clear!

    That's the best post I've seen here in ages - having been a diehard since 1964 I couldn't agree more!

    Brighton Tickets

    Well, despite the horrendous weather and the result, we had a great weekend in Brighton. Didn't see too much of the outside of the ground as we were blown from Falmer Station to the away end and couldn't get in fast enough to avoid getting soaked! Staff and stewards were great and had some brilliant banter with home fans on the train to and from Lewes. Strangely, we were sitting outside a cafe on the sea front in the sun on Sunday morning and the sea was like a millpond - have never seen such contrasting weather over two days. Will deffo return next year if we are in the same league!

    This is almost as stupid as Brexit .........no, that's not possible!

    Brighton Tickets

    Well, I was very keen to go to this one - new ground for me (the previous times we've played there didn't fit in with dates I could make), a weekend by the sea and Brighton is a great cosmopolitan city. Can't wait!!!

    OT Lowestoft Town

    No, it's called 'senility' - ask Tilly about it

    OT Lowestoft Town

    Off to see Lowestoft Town's FA Cup Match tomorrow - out of interest (being the tight old git that I am), cananyone tell if I have to be 60 or 65 to qualify for the concessionary bargain price of £8. Thanks in advance to anyone that knows!

    What cretin thought

    Blue?????? - Should have gone to Specsavers!

    The day the spectacles fell off

    Exactly - the guy next to me was saying they were 'rubbish' - sorry to disgree but they were a well organised side who are fairly well established in the Prem. After our initial burst at the start, I didn't think they had too many problems to deal with. Shame about Drmic effort near the end not going in but, on the day, a fair result against a half decent side.

    London Stadium

    Well, the last time I went here was to see Oscar Pistorius win his last ever race at the 2012 Paralympics so I was interested how the stadium had been adapted for football. Basically, not very well - as people have said above, the atmosphere was flat at best and the separation between the upper and lower tier for away fans doesn't help generate any real noise. Luckily, I had a seat right at the front of the upper tier so the view was good but the distance from the pitch can only be second worst to Newcastle! Interested to see comments about coach parking as coaches were parked at Pudding Mill Lane Station, at worst 10 minutes walk from the ground - had no problems after the game but I can imagine (given the exit routes) that getting back to Westfield/Stratford being a bit of a mare. Pre-match we managed to fiind the trendy enclave close to Hackney Wick Station and indulged at the Crate Brewery.Got to say, the West Ham fans we spoke to were friendly and divided about the new stadium. Approaching the ground from the Hackney Wick direction was easy but we could see that from the Stratford side the body and bag search was leading to quite a queue build-up. Don't know whether I'd bother going back but for the Crate Brewery alone and the nearby Jamaican Burger Van it is probably worth it!
  10. As I stand at every game anyway and have only sat down at half-time for at least the last 10-15 seasons and have never felt threatened, I assume I practice safe standing already. Apart from anything else it''s good for my circulation to stand - felt positively constricted when I had to sit for all the match when I went to Orient yesterday!!!

    Chris Sutton

    One of my favourite ever strikers for us but him and Savage don''t half get on your wick with all their bickering on BT Sport - it''s like a fecking toddlers club!

    Where Will You Be Pre Match Sunday ?

    As Tilly will know, this is only a 10 minute walk from the ground (if you are not a City Stand Old Codger of course! :-)

    Where Will You Be Pre Match Sunday ?

    In The Jubilee as usual sampling an early pint!

    Wes Hoolahan

    Can remember how pleased I was when we picked him up from Blackpool - possibly the only good thing that Roeder did for the club.

    Age Limit at Carra Rud

    Yes, does smell a bit like Waveney''s alter ego.
