* Hopefully won't hear so much wingeing from Luton and Plymouth fans, because we won't be playing them 🙂
* Three new grounds to visit (OK, two strictly speaking, but I never got to Rotherham's new one before).
From memory we used to get at least one televised League match most seasons, so rather strange we've not had one now for around four years. Anything to do with @glasshalffull not being on the board perhaps?
It always infuriates me that on BBC South, as well as coverage of the South Coast clubs, Poxford and Franchise are both covered, but not us. How can those two clubs possibly be considered 'southern', but not us?
@Malone Don't forget it's really only a non-league ground (belonged to Kingstonian), and actually better than a lot a grounds we used to go to pre-1993. Adequate for crowds of, say, less than a thousand, but totally unfit for the sort of crowds AFCW…
Four photo sets of the last game at Loakes Park now up.
Plus some new colour photos (some admittedly of variable quality) of matches from the 1994-1995 season, with hopefully more to follow …
@Malone My only worry with that would be, if we did get a few points from the next two, we'd be on a bit of a high, and might subconsciously think that the job was done, whereas in reality we would probably need a few more.
@NewburyWanderer, thanks, I overlooked the QPR one, chairboys.co.uk gives it as 2343. They give the Franchise one as 1300. What source are you using?
Might have been the stats page of our programme at the time, or the o…
I know 1,850 is the final number of tickets sold, but is there not a decent chance more actual seats than that will be available, depending on whereabouts they put the segregation?
That's the sensible answer. Given that Oxfor…
This will be our largest away league following since Orange Day on 22/09/2001, when we took 2711 to Reading.
Next largest are both Oxford, 1796 on 09/04/2011 and 1690 on 01/11/2014.
Steve, how about these others …
I don't imagine that the 'lads' will attempt to sit in their allocated seats. They'll most likely roll up at 2.55, and, finding that there's no space at the back, will go down the front and stand the whole game, blocking the view of everyone down th…
Yes, we definitely played Hemel in the PMFL in the early 70s. Perhaps @glasshalffull was thinking of fellow New Town team Harlow Town, with the running track surrounding the pitch, in the shadow of the big Gilbey's gin distillery.
