Was in the nwq last night and saw the incident. There was a group of 6 who stood up when north upper sang stand up if you want them out. They continued to stand and were met with a volley of abuse from the back row by an older man telling them to either go over to north upper or sit down, by the way these 6 blokes and im sure they wouldnt mind me saying were the stereotypical charlton types that others mock, so when they didnt obey to the old one at the back a younger man, who was with the older one, then hurdled chairs to confront the 6 men. The younger man then shoved one of the 6 who flew backwards over the seats and could have seriously been hurt, these 6 looked like they have never seen violence before and didnt fight back, its at this time stewards, on leaving their duties of checking tickets, came to the rescue. Then not knowing what happened did nothing and allowed the perpetrator to leave at the end of the match while they questioned the guy who was pushed. How that man who was pushed didnt end up in a and e i dont know.Sounds nasty. Only surprising thing from your account is that there must have been at least nine people in NWQ (you, the six protestors, the hookigan and his mate). That's about four more that it looked from where I was sitting (winky emoji thing!)
Probably not much of a challenge after that much pinot either.The closest Crossbar Challenge attempt so far has been the one by a woman, fwiwThat was curb_it with two pints of Pinot.........................oh sorry, wrong Crossbars
My guess is that, if we get a new owner before collapsing completely, he or she will come in like a white knight and the first game post-Roland will be a carnival. CARD, WAR and the club et al will make a big fuss and we'll get a big crowd (relatively speaking) and the first game will be like Portsmouth in '92.Whatever happens Jimmy just make sure you are tucked up at home with your laptop and fresh batteries in your mouse. We cannot have you celebrating down the Valley, your home listeners need you.
The subsequent crowds will drop, but the baseline, depending on which league we are in, will be a big chunk, say 25%, above what it is today. Where it goes from there will depend entirely on success.
Has anything changed since last August that would bring the crowds back and the likes of me purchasing a season ticket again?Have you got anything smaller?
