    Bland & Characterless 2020/21

    I have a mate who is a Norwich fan. Went down to visit a few years ago and was walking around Norwich when he pointed out a young lad wearing their away shirt. They were in the Premiership at the time and were the only team in yellow (no Wolves, Watford etc). He said they have advised the fans...

    RIP Frankie Worthington

    I can't remember the game, might even have been the Wolves game.. The ball went out for a throw in and Frank went over to pick the ball up and take the throw. The ref whistled and gave it the other way. Frank walked backwards on the pitch with the ball held out at arms length for the opposition...

    Preston North End - Iconic images.

    I was on that game too - a few more than 400 tho' Very sad about Dai Davies - he had a blinder when he didn't have to Took stick off North End fans the two times we met in the league that season, they'd won the league already and would have been quit justified in taking the foot off the pedal...

    Kirkham, Freckleton, etc, Whites...

    I went to KGS between 70 and 77 At that time there was about 70 lads in each year Some weren't interested in football, hard to believe I know ! One or two were glory hunters, picking one of the big teams, the rest were split pretty evenly The main difference was the North End fans tended to...

    Season Card 20/21 Details (Confirmed) - Latest Club Update Refund Options 24/09(Page 99)

    I object to the "unlike many on here - balanced view" jibe Ifollow is not an acceptable or viable alternative for me, so a refund policy would be the only option should stadiums be closed again, or not even open in the first place I am not going to part with the thick end of £500 without the...

    Season Card 20/21 Details (Confirmed) - Latest Club Update Refund Options 24/09(Page 99)

    Mr Ridsdale's statement smacks of "we hear you but we are not listening" The no refunds policy specifically makes mention of Covid 19 I understand why in normal years you would have a no refunds clause, but not this year I certainly will not be buying a season ticket as it stands Might...

    I've slept on this and am still pretty angry about it all, but anger ids slowly being replaced by a sense of bewilderment. Did nobody read this through, or have a final heads together before it was released ? It has created so much ill will that may never be full repaired I've been going on...

    In these uncertain times I would be more willing to put my hand in my pocket if I had the assurance that should stadiums be closed again I would get my money back They are not giving this assurance so my money stays in my pocket Besides its not certain that stadiums will be open in October as...

    This has all the hallmarks of supporting North End back in the 70's and 80's when the prevailing attitude was that the Club was doing you a favour by selling you a ticket and treated supporters with disdain and contempt Id rather hoped that customer service had improved over the years- this is a...
