Well....
By SHOES, I mean foot shaped nests of rusty nails held together by barbed wire.
As for LIQOURICE! Closest we got to LIQOURICE was if a drop of Pernod dripped from the Woodman's bin and landed on our bowl of halftime sawdust.
Never heard us complain though!

That's a pretty good stab at a Norfolk accent for a Black Country Lad  ::)

I don't think it is a wind up, the poster has said a few times that he is 14 and autistic, so while something as mundane as getting home from school and catching the bus might not seem a big deal to non autistic grown adults, it obviously is to him. Autistic people tend to struggle with changes in routine.

Was enjoying the Monty Pythonesque banter of Setteefeet and Albionic though!

Suppose it all depends on whether he's 14 and autistic really.

Highly improbable but I could be a six foot white rabbit called Kevin for all you know.

That or a Dingle or a Viler posing as an Albion supporter.

It says 5/6 but it’s actually 6 out of 6. The Swansea midweek game will be live on the red button .

Outrageous! How I hate Sky, and I really do mean ‘hate’. Another day out ruined. I am convinced that what is needed is some organisation of real fans to sabotage the Sky broadcasts, it would be so satisfying to actually stop them showing some matches. What would be done if some large banners were on display behind the goals with slogans telling Sky where to get off?

They would be removed. No club is going to risk upsetting their paymaster.

Advanced apologies to the Mods and anyone else this may offend as that is not my intention.

But.........

Sky's f*****8 sh it,
Sky's f*****8 sh it,
Sky's f*****8 sh it, Sky's f*****8 sh it, Sky's f*****8 sh it.

I'd prefer to get behind the Albion but it's worth a thought  ;) .
