Albion Matchday Forum / Re: Ejected for wearing away shirt
« on: October 13, 2019, 07:48:18 PM »
I would walk to the ground wearing it on display. I have sat in the home end with friends at other grounds with a shirt on to but a coat covering it. Likewise friends have sat in the Hawthorns doing the same. The guy was in the family stand minding his own business. Total overreaction IMO especially as he offered to put his coat back on.

What family stand is that? There isn't a designated family stand at the Hawthorns.

I first saw Godden away at Ashton Gate in 1977, the ball was bouncing all around the box and he was rooted to his line. I thought who the eff is this? We did manage to get a 2-1 win however. Not the worst keeper we have had but far from the best. Brilliant reflexes, but never commanded his box and stayed on his line.  The 78 team needed a Shilton or a Clemence in goal, then it would have been great.

That was the first time I saw Godden too. I came away impressed, not least because he saved a Keith Fear penalty to win us the game.

Godden holds the record for successive appearances for Albion. 228 consecutive games from August 1977 to October 1981. He was a brilliant shot stopper and an integral part of a great side.

Perception is everything and Godden paid heavily for that rick v Liverpool. But the stats show we only conceded 35 goals in 78-79 from 42 games. Our 7 defeats were all by one goal and none of those defeats were down to Godden.

Bit naughty this changing the Huddersfield game when they'd already finished announcing stuff beyond that date too. You'd be proper P'd off if you was a terriers fan and you'd booked trains or to stay over etc on the Saturday already thinking Sky wouldn't mess with it now.

Very naughty. What is the point of having a deadline for announcing televised games, if you are going to add a further game weeks later as if it was an afterthought? Treating supporters with total disdain.

The Albion News twitter page reads to me as if Dave was looking forward to doing this season's programme.

I think we used Yellow shorts once before, the John Harston season? But yes, agree, yellow shorts is a bit weird, this one is not a patch on last season

It was green shorts in 06/07. Always had green shorts (apart from the pale blue shorts when the yellow & green strip was first introduced).

Older fans may remember playing them at home in a pre season friendly in August 73. We were newly relegated, so not too dissimilar to now. Lost 0-1 before a crowd of 4,304.

Suppose Bristol city was always going to be on sky, if it wasn’t the match choice it would have been on the red button.

I wonder if the two games over Easter, the Friday and Monday will be on the red button if there not picked

Well they haven't been picked (one consolation for not being in automatic places), but don't know about the Red Button.

I don't know what depresses me more. The sacking of Darren Moore or the reaction of those Albion fans welcoming it.

Awful decision. The club could at least given him the chance to see if we'd go up via the play offs. We deserve all the national abuse we'll get for this.

There was a block left to go on sale.

Block C15 had just been put on sale when I looked at 10 o'clock on Monday morning, with only a few seats taken and the rest available. However when I next looked a couple of hours later it was no longer possible to book online, so something must have happened in that time which caused the club to withdraw online sales.
