  • best of luck lads and lasses attending decided this season i was going to mostly attend grounds i haven't been only have 6 to tick off in this league, and the other local games. 

    attended the 6-0 there and amazingly managed to miss all 6 goals by either chatting to people or having a piss.

    reading, wigan. fulham, west brom and qpr are me before xmas. 
    I did exactly this, missed 3rd and 4th goal as we bought about 4 pints each at HT, everyone was buzzing we were 0-2 up, the rest was madness.
    Ric Fuller should've had a double hat trick that day and eventually got on the score sheet as did the much maligned Salim Kerkar over six years ago now.

    Interesting @SoundAsa£ I thought Nick Pope came from Bury St Edmunds / Ipswich way what's the background to her living oop north then?

    She did tell me but I can’t remember now.
    If I bump into her on Saturday I’ll ask again.
  • My advice is not to wear colours if you want to go drinking in the pubs in town. 

    Not worn colours to the game in ten years for this reason (and I'm an adult ;) haha). 

    Would not let us into any

  • Went to the 2-1 defeat last season.

    Nearest away end pub, if you can call it that, is at the leisure centre. A pint with a whiff of chlorine, noisy kids and a view of a pirate skull and ship. Quirky.

    The Metrodome, parking £5 can be slow getting away after.
  • 731 Addicks had purchased tickets before they went off sale on Thursday. Tickets will be available on the day, but with a £2 increase on the original price. Adult, senior and young adult tickets will be available for cash at the turnstiles, while juvenile tickets will have to be purchased from the home ticket office at the opposite end of the ground.

    Prices for tickets on the day are as follows:

    Adult: £25

    Over 65 and U22: £18

    U18: £12

    U12: £7

    Where to drink

    The aforementioned Metro Dome is an option, while the Coach and Horses and East Deane Working Men’s Club, both on Doncaster Road, welcome away fans. The Dove Inn is an outlet for the Old Mill Brewery and is also recommended.

    There is a Wetherspoon’s in the town centre, although drinking in the centre of town, particularly wearing colours, is not recommended.

  • I REALLY wish we could join you all tomorrow but have only just returned a day earlier than planned from a week in the New Forest , due to the inclement weather.

    Have a safe & successful trip , dear Lifers & PLEASE bring home the spoils !

    Surely it’d be cheaper to all go in one car.
  • Can't make it this week.
    Safe journey to all the faithfull.

  • Will be there in my new-to-me Red Woolwich shirt courtesy of the museum auction. Also with a few other Yorkshire reds. We seem to have followed Barnsley around the league's over the past 40 years and it's always a good test. Never forget 6-0. 

  • Any pubs by the station which shows the football ?
