Think it might have been last night, about a second or two after the top came off the box of claret and spew paper hankies.
They repulse me, any chance they can bang on about 1982 they will.....and do!

They couldnt even beat the part time plate smashers in the comic version of the Champions League, now they think they are elite!!  ???

As much as I don't like Man Utd , when they showed the replay you could clearly see the Coventry player was offside...only just in front but offside non the less.
For me there should be daylight between the two for it to be offside, basically all that showed yesterday was his shoe size was bigger than Wan Bassaka's, it was that close. There was no obvious advantage to the attacking player there

Forest season ticket prices increased by 22-28%, I have a feeling ours will go up this year regardless of what division we are in, but not by that much in one go I hope!!  :o

I think on another, earlier part of the season day, with no play -offs imminent we would have put 6 past Rotherham without breaking sweat.
And still got the 3 points that we got last night.....

Come on. Everyone knows the buid up to a goal has no bearing whatsoever on the quality of chance. It's all about the assist and the goal. Nothing else.
Thats true, Asante got an assist for shooting the ball at the defenders barnet from 20 yards for our 100% nailed on penalty last night  :D

Officially sold out just over ten minutes ago.
Don't surprise me, big game for both and a rare 3pm kick off!

I dont think they will give us anymore as they have season ticketholders next to us I would imagine?

Yes, Leeds, Southampton, Ipswich and even Leicester fans will have all done the same by now as they are 'guaranteed' the play offs. Many Albion fans too, which doesnt then leave a lot of rooms at a cheaper rate

Away from the obvious, it is fantastic news for the members of staff who earn pittance in comparison to players, hopefully they now have clarity and keep their jobs. Players could have moved on and earned more, these people were genuinely facing redundancies, etc through no fault of their own, massive news and relief all round within the club im guessing. Hopefully the feel good factor is felt throughout :)

I was just chatting with a bloke at work who is a church goer, and he asked me how it came about that we took TLMS as our anthem?

I couldn't answer and the only thing I could find online was one suggestion from 8 years ago that stated it was a cup game in the 70's against Everton when a load of drunks sang it because the match was being played on a Sunday, and then it reappeared regularly again from the 90's?

Is this right?

Shame we couldn't find suitor for Reach and Chalobah this window. Imagine having 45k p/w spare. Makes a real difference in this league if used well.
Reach is out for 4-6 weeks isn't he? If so no chance of moving him on until the summer  :(

He was good, but if is he such a world beater why is our away record abysmal and he has often gone missing.

His wages are massive and we can no longer afford.

Try wobbling your head when we miss out on the po and have no new owner and yo £29k rumoured wages for another season.

If he is so great why didn't anybody buy him in the prem when we were relegated and why did a championship club get him when he was freed and available to any club in the world.

We paid him the most that's why.

I never said he didn't have great games, but not often enough to justify what we can now afford.
Him on 29k a week, or Reach 23k, Chalobah 24k, and Diangana 25k. I would let all 3 of them go in a heart beat before Yokuslu

The stewards are not fit for purpose for a game of this magnitude and thats not a criticism of them, the majority are there thinking all they will have to do to pick up their £25 or whatever is direct someone to their seat. There will be the experienced ones who know how to deal with the situations and can spot something likely to kick off and deal with it but most are there for the money and a easy couple of hours.

There should have been a better Police prescence in the ground in all areas.
I'm guessing the less experienced ones would have been exactly where it kicked off to begin with, as during a risk assessment that would surely be deemed a safe area as predominantly players family and friends sit there!

Interesting: that's not how it's being reported.
I'm reporting what I saw with my own eyes, not condoning it in any way, shape or form but also not buying the exaggerated version that the media are portraying it to be!

Only  couple of scuffles?  Bottles flying everywhere , reports of a pitch invasion and so-called Baggies supporters fighting the police.  No matter who started it, two things  were clear:

a) there was overreaction from our so-called supporters
b) Hawthorns stewards were slow to react so it's on us.

I am very depressed.  It's easy to make an example of an EFL side to warn the EPL teams.  We need to lawyer up.

Oh and welcome to the Black Country Callum Marshall
The TWO scuffles in question, 1 Millenium corner, one Halfords corner - both over within a couple of minutes!

Bottles flying everywhere? I saw one aimed at a player which was bang out of order (as was them throwing a flair into the MC when they scored the first! goal)

Pitch invasion (if you can call it that) was a woman trying to nutmeg a steward and a man holding his scarf up at the dingles (2 people out of 27,000?)

Not excusing anything, just saying IMO it was exaggerated and ive seen worse up the Hawthorns that has not had the media coverage this has

I don't think potential buyers will be put off by a couple of scuffles, 5 arrests were made in the ground and no doubt more will follow, an internal investigation will have to happen to ensure ticket holders are fully accountable and we move on. Not the first and wont be the last, Millwall at the back of the Smethwick was worse than this, its just been exaggerated in the media due to it being on national TV.
