  1. The German FA has rules against commercial entities being part of a club's name so RB Leipzig, are NOT called Red Bull Leipzig, they are called 'RasenBallsport Leipzig'. "In contrast with previous clubs, RB Leipzig did not bear the corporate name. The statutes of the DFB would not permit the corporate name to be included in the club name. Instead, the club adopted the unusual name "RasenBallsport", literally meaning "Lawn Ball Sports"." It wouldn't be right for us to have the word 'Red' associated with the club so what could we use as the RB instead of Red Bull? Reyt Big?
  2. Don't forget Sow, Mendez-Laing, Brown, and Johnson.
  3. Solid. As he has been most of the season.
  4. Can you not book it online and choose the seats you want?
  5. It's a poisoned chalice. The pressure would have been enormous on him. Glad he's finding his own way without our weight of expectation.
  6. Can't help but smile watching that. Lovely.
  7. I know it’s a long shot but if anyone can’t make it please let me know.
  8. That one season we got out of him was fantastic. Moped about and wasn't nearly as arsed after that first season. Even Adam Reach scores spectacular goals every now and then.
  9. This is a common thing on the continent. Not sure I'd welcome it over here and I love a pint or two on match day. Beer festivals with thousands of people attending in a single night are also common on the continent. You don't get them over here because it'd be carnage. SOME of us are a different breed unfortunately.
  10. How good would it be if SWFC bought up one of the units for a fans area/bar/new shop/or summat.
  11. Dutch pronunciations can be difficult to grasp: Dirk Kuyt - "Dirk Cowt" (like the animal) Pascal Struijk - "Pascal Strowk" Wim Jonk - "Injured Mercenary"
  12. Some interesting insights in here. Darren Moore/SWFC get a mention around 45 minutes. UTO
  13. Championship cerca 2006/7. After the first game or two. That's the last time i remember anyway.
  14. Didn't say anywhere that they dominated... because they didn't. They had most of the ball but that's a very different thing. Just to be clear though, first half they did dominate. Had the most of everything IMO. Second they had most of the ball but didn't pose a threat for me.
  15. First half, we were DIRE. it was all Rotherham. Foul for the penalty was outside the box. Save from BPF was the best pen save i can remember. Second half they had a lot of the ball and did nowt with it. We scored early. COULD have been called offside but WHO CARES! (rovrum fans care... they care a lot). Lots of rotherham play. Grass cutter and an awful mistake from their keeper lets Gregory in (who did really well to anticipate it). GAME OVER.
  16. Think most of it is fair enough. First half I don't think any of us would have grumbled at being 1-0 down. We weren't at the races. They had plenty of play but did diddly with it. Bannan was kept quiet for the most part. They weren't the best team though as they LOST the game. Cheers for the 3 points lads. UTfnO!
  17. Walking to the ground last night towards the Kop from Herries road it struck me as such a shame that the club (or Chansiri more specifically... currently!) hasn't bought up the land in that area. All the buildings on the walk down are derelict and, i'm guessing, awaiting demolition which will result in the massive space that is going to be filled by the new retail park. The opportunity there to develop for the benefit of the club, car park, fan site, megastore etc (christ, put a supermarket on it and charge rent) seem obvious. Seeing Leicester and their plans for their ground and the surrounding area to the ground has just brought it to light a little more for me. Do we think we'd have taken up the land if we'd got premier league money as well? Is it a case of bad timing and circumstance or a lack of ambition and foresight by previous owners? UTO.
  18. Hey everyone. I’ve missed the boat on the Rotherham tickets as I’ve been away. I know it’s a long shot but If anyone has a spare one then please let me know. thanks.
