My voice is very, very hoarse this morning  8) .
It doesn't matter how many resources you have.
If you don't know how to use them, they will never be enough.
Oh, and always remember to defecate on those Vile chaps in claret and spew.

I can only emit an occasional gerbil squeak. Much like the Vilers last night...

That's how we need the ground to be weekly. We could do worse than getting Richie Anderson on the mike on a permenant basis

Lets hope that the fans present remember last night, and bring some of that back with them next season when a rebuilt team will really need support to get the season going.  Apart from the Gayle/Barnes led honeymoon period I've not really enjoyed the atmosphere at the ground week in week out.   There were very few times when the fans were able to lift the players, the crowd often just waiting for the team to pick them up in expectation that our squad should just be winning.

Following the potential staff changes I don't think there will be so many fans who will be expecting us to win every game next season, so maybe we can go back to giving the players our full support every game regardless of performance or results.   That is the first item on my wish list for next year, with a good manager just following.

I said 6 weeks ago I wouldn't renew our 4 season tickets whilst Jenkins and co are still here.


Last nights atmosphere has made me just renew for next season! Best atmosphere I have ever witnessed, a credit to our fans.

According to the once-a-season tossers sat around me last night, the atmosphere was "like a morgue", and one even questioned my support because I didn't want to stand all game (it's the East Stand, what do you expect?!).

Great effort from fans and players alike last night, we didn't deserve the outcome.

My mate who is in is 80s was going mental last night up and down on his stick! Singing and waving his flag! I recorded it when the players came out and when the liquidator was played, this morning I showed it to my Mrs even though we didn't progress the hairs on the back of my neck and arms where standing on end, that's why i am a proud Baggie today you fans at the ground last night where magnificent. Well done one and all.

They are not on sale at present are they? I’ve tried to renew and can’t do so.

A big shout out to the MC and East stand next to the vilers. We didn't stop singing all match, shut down any seal attempts at chanting and generally took the piss out of their awful support. It was genuinely the best atmosphere I've been involved in down the Albion, and I've been part of a fair few!

Still, a week on, feeling very proud of our support.

However, as reality bites and we have blown our best chance of promotion, my feeling towards the clowns that run our club could not be more contrasting  >:(
