  1. There were more than that. About 20 of us on their end which was the side terrace till we scored and it kicked off. We then got marched round to the away end where there were about another 100. Bristol Rovers I would say about 200 or so.
  2. But fell way short. If it wasn't for Dave Jones taking over we would not have been promoted.
  3. From what Iv'e heard they have a police room at the ground where fans can be charged and action taken at a later date.
  4. How do you know he wasn't charged and then released?
  5. Wilder would only come with the sole intention of taking us down. It would have been different with Colin but half of of our fanbase just couldn't see that.
  6. I am undecided on this which is why I have not voted. However I firmly believe you cannot play tippy tappy football to get out of this league. Its more about fitness, strength, and a lot of really hard work.
  7. Spot on there. Its about battling, closing down, fitness, roughing up the opposition and route one. The percentage game works in this league as more mistakes are made in defences.
  8. Club spent more money on players under his managership than the rest of our history added together. That will never happen again as we gambled and failed. League 1 is about fitness, dogedness, battling and digging in deep every game. It takes a certain type of manager to get out of this league and my examlpe is Paul Sturrock who worked with hands tied behind his back but knew how to work the magic with average players. Carlos does not fit that I'm afraid.
  9. I was talking specifically about the players mental approach to games. The fans hype can have an adverse effect on their commitment and focus on matchday by convincing them next game all we have to do is turn up.
  10. My opinion for what its worth. The impression is that the hype so far has done the team no favours. In respect we think we are better than most of the other teams. When your'e a big club this is a horrible league to get out of as proved in all our other previous attempts, irrelevant of how far back that was. We should know from previous experience nothing less than 100% every single game will do. Every team is looking to own the Wednesday scalp, its their club's two cup finals. Unless we become fully focused and 100% commited every game Saturday will become a repeat scoreline.
  11. I believe they are where the old press box used to be. More or less in the middle of the lower tier at the very back.
  12. Bad news. Not a good away end. Open to all the elements and no roof to create an atmosphere. https://footballgroundguide.com/leagues/england/league-one/crown-ground-accrington-stanley.html
  13. Ok take your word for that have not seen the replay.
  14. Kamberi is gonna have to watch the line more. I actually thought the goal was well offside. With a lower standard of officials decisions like this will enevitably go for us some weeks and against us others. However being in the right place at the right time for both goals is goal poaching instinct and something we have lacked for years until now it seems.
  15. Yep was there. The train was literally steaming as loads of stripped males hung their super wet clothes from the overhead racks. Think we arrived back at Sheffield midland in the very early hours of Sunday morning.
