  • Aaron Pierre scored a cracking late winner there. I also recall a Friday night game there too where some young Cambridge fans were baiting us before a Wycombe fan bellowed “OI SMALL BOYS! YOU’VE GOT NO PUBIC HAIR. SHUT UP!” Everyone sniggered and th…

  • Good thread! I find adopting a team in a sport helps you have a focus and gives it a bit of purpose watching games - wanting your team to win, ups and downs etc US Sport NFL - Picked the Raiders from the 80s not sure why. Just liked the logo a…
  • Quite like the concept of fan matchday rituals - could be a good one to hear more of as a regular feature, get some fan stories, greatest moments etc Mind you, might get a bit repetitive “we go to the Caledonian then we watch the match” “We go t…

  • I used to love reading the BFP every Friday and the coverage was really comprehensive - going through Phil Ball’s Wix site there are some brilliant pieces on there of the glory years. There were some quality journalists who worked for the BFP and we…
  • We have just signed Jordan Obita from Oxford. 2.5 year deal.
  • @OldEchoMan said: If I may, by way of an explanation with regards Close Quarters, the pandemic rather got in the way of so many remarkable interviews I did throughout the season. For instance, Curtis Thompson, Nick Freeman and Nnamdi Ofoborh …
  • @Shev said: I hope he makes a roaring success of it. Burton feel a little like a kindred club - one of the traditional non-leaguers (basically, clubs promoted from 1986 onwards) who made it to the second tier, along with ourselves and Yeovil. …
  • Not sure if this helps anyone but if you are on an EE phone contract you can get the BT Sport App content for free for three months. You download the app then text SPORT to 150 I think you can only watch on a device though rather than being able to…
  • Have just spent some time on the site. Superb. You are right, you can lose hours. Just enjoyed reading about a Jason Seacole hat-trick v Worthing.
  • @NewburyWanderer said: @NoelAshford Not a book obviously, but have you come across the Wycombe Wanderers Archive website? Literally thousands of newspaper cuttings (mainly from the BFP), from the late 50s to the present day, courtesy of the late …

  • The opposition view... my QPR supporting mate sent this to me. I have read some of his stuff before and always found it honest, refreshing and amusing. https://www.fansnetwork.co.uk/football/queensparkrangers/news/53746 Quite a nice antidote t…
  • Fantastic guy. I was taught by Alan and Phil taught my brother. His son Russell used to arrange the council pitches for Saturday and Sunday league games for those who played on the Rye in the 90s/00s. When I first started watching in the mid 80s my…

  • FYI - my shirts haven’t arrived yet and I am one of the Woodlands members that has been affected so not suggesting anyone on here was unfounded in voicing their views on both topics!
  • Thanks for sharing this. Watched it last night. It’s a good watch and, for me anyway, a reminder of what could have and might happen to our club under different circumstances. Puts the smaller bits around Woodlands and shirt arrivals into perspectiv…
  • Went to Burnham v Northwood tonight. Decent game. 237 in attendance. Burnham did well and deserved winners. Really good ground for a non-league if you’ve not been. Saw a couple of Wanderers fans there enjoying some live football!
  • Oh, Didcot beat Aylesbury last week btw.
  • Quick update...tonight Newport Pagnell 1-1 Beaconsfield (NP win 3-1 on pens) Maidenhead 1-1 Marlow (Marlow win 3-1 on pens) Hungerford 2-1 Bracknell Aylesbury v Didcot still to play. Winners join us, Slough, Reading and Milton Keynes in t…
  • For anyone interested here’s the round dates http://www.thefa.com/-/media/cfa/berks-bucksfa/files/articles/2019/june/county-cup-dates-adult.ashx?la=en Looks like we’ll play the 3rd round/Quarter Final w/e 10th Jan so might mean a decent strengt…
  • Thanks. Thought that was the case but wasn’t clear on the B&B website. Looked like we joined at the next round.
  • With all the changes are we going to be able to get rid of Frank Turner for a draw and Elton for a defeat at full-time?
  • Can’t make the Andy Harman meeting but very interested to hear what is said...any chance someone could record (even just on an iPhone) then post on soundcloud? (assuming people there are happy to be recorded)
  • Which Donny players are out? Baudry and...?
