No, not really. We won't have numbers up there. Mainly because the game is Wednesday night.

95 was a lot of fun up there though.
I was thinking on the pitch as well as off the pitch. Things are getting interesting at both ends of the table now we are getting closer to the end of the season.

You have been in Australia too long (thousand agree with that TBF), Wednesday night London to Birmingham is no issue to real fans.

Especially when they are 1 point off the relegation zone.

You have to leave work early, no trains home. All adds up to not as many making the trip.
West Adelaide Soccer Club president Alex Alexandrou said the club was still in a position to be playing and training at the new ground either by the end of the 2015 season or in 2016.

As I said , making excuses.

train at 23:10 BTW
what about driving, or using a coach?

anyway, I am trolling you. and cant be bothered to go on. but I have never heard of approx 120 miles being too far for a game any day or night.

When did you say "making excuse"?

Didn't realise there was a train that late. Knowing W. Mid Police, they'll still struggle to make that anyway.

Driving - can't have a beer.
Coach - Can't have a beer and have to deal with the type of fans that take coaches.

I also never said too far.

We will take about 500. However, we took 0 for the non game on Tuesday night.

I'm just hoping they do their usual trick and come down with the Christmas decorations.

Or they do a Michael Hutchence again.

See Birmingham docked 9 points for breaching EFL profit and sustainability rules.

Who believes these rules should be scrapped ?

:lol: you’re only saying that because Wednesday have been caught rorting the system.

Wrong didn’t agree before it as effectively closes the door on sides doing Man City or Chelsea in the future . FFP actually protects the big 6 as big sugar daddies can’t buy a club and spend their way to the top.

Aston Villa and Derby to be caught as well The Owls.



The problem is that the financial gulf between EPL is so great clubs are forced to gamble with overspending to try and get promoted. Wolves could have been caught as well if they didn’t get promoted . The EFL clubs were very angry that the EFL agreed to the recent tv deal to sky.
