It may have seemed loud if you were in the middle of it, but it really didnít appear to be so from where I was in the upper DE.
Letís hope they donít need to get more noticeable before the powers that be, act.
Nor the Trinity.  Heard a little bit of booing but that was it.  Couldn't hear a single chant and I was listening for it because I wanted to join in!

It was very loud in the Holte Lower, which is to many, myself included, the heartbeat of the fan base.

It's where the real fans sit. i.e. Me.

I used to stand a lot.  Back in the day when we were good.

But if the design of the transverse bulkheads had been adequate, the flooding would have been contained to bulkhead one. The ship doesn't list, doesn't sink, evacuated and limps into New York denying Ghostbusters 2 a gag. Ships impact debris, especially pre-sonar.

I challenge that there are more adequate historical references than this one.

Yes you are so right as usual. For example the car that hit the stranded 40 tonner killing all occupants was poorly designed.

I couldn't hear much either. I thought there might have been more of a protest - everyone i chatted to at HT was moaning about Bruce and the awfulness of the football but there was no move to join in where I was sitting in the Doug. We're all numb - anesthetised by Bruceball and dulled expectations.

From what I saw, most fans had left before the final whistle.

If the FFP 20 point deduction stuff is right, we probably can't afford to sack the fucker plus his mates and pay compo for someone else plus all of his mates. Lerner/O'Neill Xia/Bruce really did fuck this club over.

S.Bruce,captain of the Titanic,said,"It takes a bit of time for the crew to get used to a new ship and the Atlantic is never easy but  I know what I'm doing and my record speaks for itself."

"I'll get us there or thereabouts!"
Well that's the Sailingship for you.

Why are people peddling this 20 points deduction stuff? Where has it come from?

I posed the same question yesterday - it's just conjecture at the moment nothing more and I still think that if it became more we could challenge it  legally. I guess the one way to ensure it was never relevant is to get promoted next May.

Go over to the FFP thread. I asked why the putative punishment had gone from 12 to 20 points but got no answer. Thereís an article in The Times which has everyone running around with pants on fire and even the more sensible people donít seem to be saying anything too reassuring. As I said on there, it seems unbelievable that our new owners would save us from a clusterfuck and then repeat the identical clusterfuck to their financial detriment.

... which, incidentally, is probably why they would not have sanctioned Bolasieís 80k wages; as some have suggested.
