  1. Past memories oft reflect kindly on places though? Notts I think has the most amount of pubs per square mile of any city, an okay waterfront, a good sporting heritage (football/cricket esp), a castle (well, not really), an arena/rock city, attracts students and plays on the robin hood theme. People are a little too quick to put places down sometimes imo
  2. Likewise. Sheffield is twice the city of Nottingham and my friends/family agree (despite liking the latter).
  3. This was 200/1 on Friday night (Bet365). Joint longest with Millwall.
  4. And at our club, no such thing as average prices. Fraid it does heighten expectations - certainly higher than what we currently see.
  5. Well done for putting a negative slant on a positive thread. Moaning about moaning. Brilliant.
  6. I went to the Sneinton Market fanzone for the Panama game and it was great, though that wasn't put on by the council (was a fiver - or 8 quid for this Saturday which sold out within 60 seconds) and allowed for up to about 400 people I believe. It was brilliant. And yeah for Sweden the council are putting on a free one in the castle grounds for up to 3000 people which has never been done in Notts before so it deffo appears doable at fairly short notice.
  7. When pay on the day fans are being charged more than 40 quid for some games then we should be in touch with the top two. End of. We have been more than patient considering our post Wembley performances.
  8. But we aren't in the Prem and nor will we sell out a week on Sunday in the home end for a second tier game at £40 a ticket. Thus Leeds are welcome to the seats for me. But anyway I'm going dizzy and so shall bow out.
  9. But we won't sell out all four sides even if the opportunity was there. Not against Leeds, on a Sunday, for a TV game. So I'd rather see away fans than empty seats. I'd rather an atmosphere as I expect the 'advantage' gained by Leeds as a result of extra tickets will be negligible - take away the tribal atmosphere from football and it's no more interesting to me than cricket.
  10. I'd suggest they offer more scope for variation than most football shirts, especially plain ones. But that isn't why he has changed our kit so the point is an odd one to make.
  11. But like he just said. It isn't or shouldn't be an either/or scenario.
  12. I don't expect him to do anything to suit my needs. But I'm allowed to voice my opinion on a forum when he doesn't.
  13. I really do wish I could see like-for-like how people would have reacted to these changes had we not improved off the pitch. Or if DA had announced such intentions. Would be very interesting!
  14. I thought it was slightly altered from the one we had previously 'used'? Pedantic of me maybe. But it's nothing to do with scaremongering. Just another example of him changing things in a quiet and creeping fashion as alluded to by a number of other posts. We've quietly accepted all changes so far simply because we are now at the top end of the second division. What will we accept to be plying our trade at the bottom end of the top division? What if we go up and don't win a game all season...will a superstitious chairman decide that it's our club colours causing us problems and well hey, they didn't oppose all my other 'tweaks'. It sounds far fetched and maybe it is. But I feel uncomfortable about it all and as I keep saying - if the club's identity fades then so does my interest meaning I lose something hugely important to me.
  15. That's a good point. Chansiri wouldn't dream of changing the badge in any way.
  16. For me it is. As I say, if success is all that you care for then simply change your allegiance to that of a top club. The things that matter to me are identity, tradition, the tribal factor/pride in my place of birth, and the memories I make with family/friends at the games. Take away some of the above and I lose that connection with the club. Once that happens it means my interest is lost also.
  17. Aside from him playing with the kit and another club in our division having had their colours completely changed in recent times. Poorly swerved.
  18. Would you apply the same argument should Chansiri announce a red kit at a steering group in twelve months time? If so minded then you can use that to justify any change whatsoever on a long enough timescale!
  19. Without a doubt but nor does it make Chansiri criticism-proof.
  20. If success is the only thing which matters then just support somebody else.
  21. Quite so, whilst clapping their hands together and singing grown up songs such as duh duh duh duh duh wednesday along to a trumpet.
  22. You can say that about football full stop! In which case why are you on even on here arguing the point either way 29 pages in.
  23. As mentioned, yeah it's only a kit. Just like if he decides that he prefers the sound of 'Sheffield City' to that of 'Sheffield Wednesday'. Tis only a name. Also heard a rumour that he shares a hobby with one of our previous owners. 'Up the Pigeons' isn't far removed from 'Up the Owls' is it so come on, we are all adults here and can surely deal with that. When tradition and identity get removed we are left with nowt. May aswell just watch Sky and support whomever Murdoch tells us to.
