|On This Day In History 27th April 1996 - Battle In Bolton |
As Pat said, it was certainly very lively at the final whistle and immediately afterwards. I remember coins and cigarette lighters being chucked into the Saints fans where I was stood in the corner. Stayed up in Blackpool that night with the London Saints. Great weekend.
|Newspaper Claims Saints Squad Missing Rohl|
Regardless of how much our players miss Rohl, for them to try and offer this up as some form of an excuse or reason for Fridays gutless performance is astonishing..
|Remember Scott Marshall !|
I went to see an old firm game that season in whch he played and guess what he managed to do again......yep score an own goal!!
|Saturday's Attendance Was Poor|
I went to the Shrewsbury game along with my eldest son who's been a few times now this season and it was dire, when I said about going along to this one he said he wanted to watch our local team (Farnborough) playing at home on the same day, ticket prices/where he was sitting didn't affect his thought process only what was served up in his last couple of visits down there. I think attendances at FA cup games as a whole will drop this season, as someone else said the recesssion may offically be over but many people have less money left after the bills are paid and are picking and choosing their games now, Does Cheltenham at home or Brighton in an important league game make for a difficult choice when money is tight? I would've gone if he'd choosen saints and I'm going along for the Brentford game (alone) but the attractiveness of a match and its importance really does hold sway for people Nick.
