  1. Brilliant letter from @Andrew Robinson. Unfortunately I fear that Mr Mothersole probably condemned it to the bin after reading the first four words :- "I would like to complain"
  2. Ditto which? You'll be almost home, or you'll be stuck in the carpark with me?
  3. Hi Buxton. Just looked at the plan for the road closure on th OS. It appears that the only section of Penistone Road that is to be closed is that between Herries Road and Herries Road South, so Parkside Road will be open and your daughter should have no problems. In fact you should be almost home in Buxton by the time we get out of the old Wednesdayite car park.
  4. OK. So it's just over 24 hours to the QPR game after which the temporary closure of Penistone Road will come into effect for the first time. Has anyone (the club, SAG, the council, SYP) told us just exactly where the road closure will start and end, or exactly what the "short" diversions will be. Outbound, Parkside Road, Catchbar Lane, Leppings Lane? Oh wait, won't that inconvenience the thousands of away supporters exiting onto Leppings Lane? and is Leppings Lane closed to traffic after the match? Inbound, Herries road/Herries Road South, but doesn't Herries Road South meet Penistone Road bang opposite the ground? What could possibly go wrong. Only Sheffield Council, SAG, SYP, together, could try to solve one "perceived" problem and in doing so cause so many more. I predict absolute CHAOS after the game tomorrow with traffic problems and gridlock around the ground for at least a couple of hours.
  5. And then they will tell us that this game has cost more to police than any other game, anywhere in the world, in football history !
  6. Not on I follow? Does that mean there will no full match replay screened on I follow tomorrow?
  7. You, surely, don't need an explanation of this.
  8. I don't think for a moment that Stuart Gray would accept the post of coach under the owner who sacked him as manager.
  9. Score draw. I'm sure SWFC will announce the new manager by 31st October.
  10. Bloody Red Button !!!! Tha only lives in Toytown !! Get thisen down to Hillsborough FFS. PS. It's chewing tobacco that makes your water blue (or so I've been told)
  11. WOW !!! Mr Blue sky really doesn't like Nando, does he?
  12. Not sure excactly what time they become available, but for the first two matches this season I have watched the I Follow full replays at about 11 AM on the Sunday morning. Good quality picture and, unlike last year, replays of goals and other moments of interest. Of course if, like me, you don't get to the away games you'll find it better to listen to the commentaries on I Follow, rather than RS, as you get the full game with none of the frustrating "Round the other games" interruptions. You also get the joy of hearing John Pearson's "YEEEEES.......WHAT A GOAL !!!
  13. Yea, and now the f'kin SYP and SAG have waded in again FFS. Will it ever end? I think D.C. must have bought the club on a Friday 13th after breaking a mirror, running over a black cat, opening his umbrella inside the house and walking under a ladder. He's probably also done loads of other things that bring bad luck in Thailand. Time to bring back the Buddhist (?) priest to lift the curse?
  14. Yes, thanks. But I was asking about the old car park which as others on here have posted is, in fact, open for the time being. Don't know where the profits are going though.
  15. Thanks for that, My alternative was to be Middlewood park and ride, and God knows how I would have managed that with all the restrictions now put in place by the incompetent SYP. P.S.. Save us a place.
  16. I'm sure I saw a post a few days ago about the old Wednesdayite car park, but can't seem to find it again. The post advised, I think, that the car park is to be open again until development work actually begins. Not seen anything about it since. Can anyone confirm if the car park is open today? (Somebody on here will know) Thanks.
  17. Wholeheartedly agree ! IMO the transfer windows, at least in part, are responsible for the ridiculous explosion in transfer costs over the last 15 years or so. The windows encourage the selling clubs to delay deals until the last 24/48 hours knowing, full well, that the buying clubs become more desperate as the hours tick by. Then, armed with gazillions of Sky TV pounds, they pay vastly inflated fees for the player they want. These inflated fees then set a new benchmark for the asking price from the start of the next window. Absolute madness!!!
  18. EVERYONE only came into their own after Jos had gone. Even though we. somehow, sneaked into the top six at one point last season I can't remember one game in which we played really well or looked capable of pushing on and cementing even a top half finish. In act after attaining the heady heights of sixth place we looked more like relegation contenders until, thank f*ck, DC finally saw the light and got rid of the waster.
