Yes please to all of those.

Go with our best team and that is our best team (Isgrove on the right). Nothing against GT but Lee/MJ/Sarce is the strongest midfield 3 and John has all the experience required to get us over the line.

This 😉

Getting back to the promotion and relegations , if you're if a certain vintage like meself then the only one I wasn't at was our first fall from the top division in 1964. Was only 7 but been there for all the rest and I think I'll be there on the grass in the rain tomorrow Mr Hugespunkbubble.

First match for me was in 66. Last match of the season. 1-1 draw against Norwich. Stood on the Embankment as a wide eyed 11 year old with a couple of mates from L/H. It was a boring end of season match but it was the humour of the fans that grabbed me and hasn’t released its grip since.

A bloke at the side of us, obviously bored, shouted as we took a corner. “Come on Fred, (Hill) give us a laugh, kick the corner flag”

Appreciating our laughter, he said 

“you have to laugh cocker”

No one ever said that in L/H. I was hooked there and then.

Tomorrow could be another notch on the up and down experience of being a Wanderers fan. No idea about stats but has any other team experienced the same? Being a Wanderer is a privilege. 
I may even turn up on that grassy bank tomorrow and think of Freddie Hill. Also known as God.

About the same here, my Dad wouldn't take me until I was 10 (1966) because I wouldn't understand it. I think the match was against Cardiff. I was more taken about the people and surroundings around me and being "grown up"

We have two chances to get the win we need. That’s assuming we need a win. 
 

We don’t do stuff easy it’s what we do. But we’ve proven we are better than the majority of teams in this league. 
 

we will Be fine. We will win tomorrow. It will be nervy no doubt. But let’s enjoy it. 4 months ago we were fearing the worst.

That’s it, right there.

 As a fan, we put up with all sorts of football. Good, bad and utter shite but the overriding reason for any fan is being there. That’s all that matters to me and most other fans. Television or whatever is a poor substitution for actually being there.

Was in the Happy shop at lunchtime treating myself to one or two of the cheap training  jackets and noted they need staff which is good news for Evatt as at least he will have a wage coming in when they replace him in a week or so.

Please don't tell me some of you clowns are still going to stand on the grass banking in pissing down rain after the match hoping the “superstars” wave at you ?

 

I know I shouldn't as you are clearly a WUM,but I cant resist. 

So, given you are so opposed to Evatt and most of these team, who would you replace them with, I want a manager and key players/positions we need to sign and why you think they are preferable to what we have?

 

I will wait to be enlightened.

And all those “beige” clubs like Gillingham, Shrewsbury, Walsall...

Well I can ask the statto question I did previously in case newcomers don't remember it. Which are the two teams who have spent the entire Premier league "era" in only either 3rd or 4th tier; so league 1 or 2 as is now, and never going up to Championship or out of the league?

How's Ratchet been banned but Hughmungus is still here? 🤣

Anyways 3-1 to BWFC tomorrow, meanwhile, Cheltenham lose to Newport.

We go into the final day on level points with them.

Next Saturday Santos towers at the backpost over Tunnicliffe to ripple the net and give us the win, while Harrogate hold Cheltenham to a drab 0-0 draw including a missed penalty from Alfie May.

I called it first.
