    Have you C&P again as you have repeated the same things over and over?

  • Peter Boakes says:

    What happened to the good old days when games started at 3.00 pm on a Saturday and the only television coverage was either match of the day or the big match.

    • Wayne says:

      Those days disappeared a couple of decades ago.

      This is what happens when the clubs demand more money for TV rights, they sign over the rights for the TV companies to do what they want.

    I’m a Hammer originating from Stratford who moved to Norfolk some years ago, but maintain the season ticket I have held for years. 17:30 games are a nightmare for me, its the whole day and night wasted for 90 minutes. Clubs think all supporters live on the doorstep.

  • Padraic says:

    I’m a season ticket holder living in Ireland. 5.30pm kick offs require an overnight stay for me, adding considerably to the cost!! Makes me think about attending the first two games!!
