Fucking love Mick


#122

Love him, and not just cuz he never beat us


#123

Brentford drew 1-1 at Stoke, apparently we hammered them, shat ourselves at the back for their goal and should have won easily. last season when we went away to “big” teams we’d do that and then lose 3-1, so an improvement there :clap:


#124

I’ve never understood why parachute payments are a thing. Surely relegation wage reductions should be set in stone for all clubs, say 35%, and the money saved used to increase the pot the Premier League passes on to the lower leagues, which i believe is currently just 5%…?

#126

really feeling our pre-match jackets


#127

any expats / vpn owners using ifollow to watch games?
the video feeds have commentary again this season! but it’s too low in the mix so you can barely hear it under the crowd noise


#128

Brentford are playing Sheff Wed today at 3pm. don’t really like Sunday matches, 3pm feels additionally odd as most Sunday matches I can remember have usually been at like 12:30pm or something.

hope we win 15-0 regardless


#129

Oh dear how crap


#130

Feels like Swansea and Leeds are going to be on every bloody week.

This sounds like a load of bollocks to me, in more ways than one. It won’t have a noticably positive impact on clubs finances as you’d have to be a nutter to pay a tenner for a game, but it will sharply increase the dodgy streams meaning less people at games.


#132

has already existed for non UK based fans for a couple of years (including for 3pm Saturday matches), I have a season subscription and bloody love it, production values are pretty low though for league 1 matches and it’s in no way comparable to Sky coverage let alone being at a game.

got absolutely no clue what % of people stream matches vs paying to watch them, pretty likely to have a negative impact on attendance though yeah, especially as weeknight matches are a hassle for tons of people anyway.

dunno, i support a club with a decent core of season ticket holders and very few floating fans so don’t think we’d have as much to lose financially as some sides


#133

At home to Ipswich tonight. Be interesting to see what a non-McCarthy Ipswich looks like


#134

I’ve played at Carrow Road and used the away dressing room. It’s a shithole and my school had better facilities. Nice that it’s had a lick of paint


#135

Heading to see Southend at Luton tonight. Tick off a new ground and see the new team that Chris Powell has put together. Should be a goodun


#136

£27 for Bolton v Birmingham, ffs.


#137

:confused: we’re so small time sometimes


#138

hoping to give @blind_pilot’s lot a doing tonight, interesting that he didn’t give me the night off to watch it with him :wink:


#139

It’s exactly that kind of mean-spirited attitude that made me put you on the rota tonight. I also totally forgot to not to which is on me…


#140

let’s be honest, if anyone’s getting the doing, it’s us right now
