  1. What a stupid decision to make now. It is clearly going to be months before the football can resume. They should be looking at this when things look like they may be returning to normal, not after 1 postponed match. Right now even if the rest of the season was binned immediately, I strongly doubt next season would be able to begin in August.
  2. I live in the “Leppings Lane Triangle”. I have an ST and I’m not inconvenienced by match days but that’s because I’m in the NBT for 12:30 on a Saturday and down at Kelham until 8:30 on a Saturday evening. But, this season has been a shitshow for anyone living here who doesn’t go to the match. Our roads bizarrely are not resident parking only, and both ends are blocked off before kick off and after the final whistle for quite a while so we’re prisoners on our own road. No one moved here unaware that match days will be busy. There may have been the odd one who complained before this season but most just accepted it was an inconvenience. However the drastic and draconian changes imposed upon us this season without warning are what’s pissed people off.
  3. We are, at least semi-officially. We’re essentially past the “contain” phase of the disease, where the aim was to prevent the spread of it. We’re now approaching full “delay”, where it’s accepted the disease will spread, but the aim is to delay it until the summer months when the impact on anyone contracting it will be reduced.
  4. We left at 3-0. Been on the ale at Kelham for a while now. Far better than watching the rest of that.
  5. The way we played against Huddersfield was a flipping embarassment, especially in the away leg when we went to defend for 90 minutes. He should never have been given a new contract after that shitshow. A flipping charlatan.
  6. I live on Fielding. It was touch and go last night- moved all my stuff upstairs and my cellar started to flood, but this morning it’s started to reduce. The river still looks bloody awful at Owlerton and through Kelham when I cycled to work this morning so it wouldn’t surprise me if the match was still called off due to the risk to supporters. There’s very little rain forecast for today and tomorrow so hopefully the river level will drop and everything will be ok.
  7. This morning I was firmly in the rugby camp. I’m not going to Blackburn today but if Wednesday are as bad as England were this morning and the cricket team were in the Ashes, I’ll start watching flipping tennis. Before anyone says anything, pyjama cricket doesn’t count and can fizz off.
  8. I was in the Greystones last year and was talking about Wednesday whilst we were getting served. He was waiting to be served at the same time and joined in our conversation. Seems like a decent bloke.
  9. Honestly, there’s no way I can be arsed to travel to Cardiff so I’m quite pleased about that one now I’ll be able to see it. I’m quite relieved about the Leeds match- I have tickets to go to the Reverend and the Makers gig the night before. I knew the match would be moved but I was worried it would be a Friday night too, like last season. I expected a clash but I’ve managed to get away with it.
  10. I wrote to Gill Furniss, MP for Hillsborough, last weekend. She's my MP as I live just off Leppings Lane, and obviously also the MP for the stadium. I got a reply from one of her staff essentially stating that she couldn't do anything and that I should write to the councillors.
  11. We heard a plane from where we sit on he North. We saw nothing. Might as well have listened to D’You Know What I Mean? by Oasis on Be Here Now. flipping tinpot.
  12. Currently sat in the Wellington in Birmingham having a couple of sherbets. Not really looking forward to it today but I’m just a bit more confident than I was when we bought the tickets.
  13. Pulis is a bell end, but ordinarily I would have a massive face on about a match being moved to Friday night from Saturday lunchtime. However, I'm delighted this weekend as it means I can go to the match Friday and then my friend's wedding on Saturday.
  14. Managed to get cheap trains for Birmingham- fixed tickets: we arrive at 9:27 and return at 20:30, but only paid £31.25 each in total. When we tried (and failed) to get Villa tickets, we were looking at about £50 for the train so delighted with this.
  15. Sadly it wasn’t open when I went past. I quite fancied free fish and chips for tea.
  16. I found his wallet by the 4 Lanes Chip Shop on Leppings Lane just now. I took it to the address on the driving licence but there was no answer when I knocked, so I shoved it through the letterbox. There was a Wednesday ST in there so someone here might know him. Maybe he is out looking for it, so please pass this on if you know him.
  17. There's only actually one reason why we won. We scored more goals than them. Without that, we definitely would not have won.
  18. Surely not the 3 o’clock kick offs? I didn’t think the FA permitted that?
  19. Hold on. I’ve just paid £10 to watch it on ifollow, and I could’ve watched it on Sky Go?
  20. I’m also on EE and the signal is rubbish where I sit on the North. Whatsapp is about the only thing I can use to send and receive messages in the stadium.
  21. My suggestion may be too late for this meeting but take it to the next one: Get rid of those flipping awful “dancers” at half time and the “music” they “dance” to. That poo gives people ear and eye cancer.
  22. Your pig “mate” is a flipping cheeky monkey. Just like all flipping pigs. It was clear the boos were aimed at the officials.
