    Previous Structure on Ealing/New Road Corner

    Can anyone help with this one. This stood at the junction of New Rd & Ealing Road when I first started attending 30 years ago. I think it was demolished for flats 5-10 years ago. I never saw it occupied, but always assumed it belonged to BFC. Was it once a club shop? (I know the shop was a...

    Griffin Park - What happens now?

    After the euphoria of last night and people posting their wonderful memories of GP on a different thread, it has started to sink in that I will no longer see any competitive football played there and is also likely I won't set foot in the place again. Therefore, I imagine decisions are now put...

    Derby (A) 11th July - Predictions

    Right, time for some more positivity, as some appear to have lost a bit of faith after the top two winning this week. Bees to win 3-1 against a drained WRDC. Dull, boring first half, as Derby try and 'do a Forest'. Cue many posts on the match thread from one GPGer stating it's the worst ref...

    Wigan (H) 4th July - Predictions

    This is potentially our most difficult game left. Hard to call - they have 7 clean sheets on the spin, are top of the form league and that run includes a win at West Brom. However, they realistically have nothing to play for now and our confidence is building with every game. Depending on...

    Best Televised Sporting Memories

    To take our minds off current news. What are your top 3? This could be your favourite memory, an outstanding sporting achievement that's stood the test of time, whatever. You can only choose ones that you've seen in your lifetime (so I can't mention 1966!) I guess there will be a lot of...

    New Road: How has it Changed?

    One for fans aged 50+, I would say... I've been coming to GP for just over 28 years and have always been intrigued about what the New Road Stand looked like, before it was 'shrunk'. I know there is still old framework behind the stand and spent many years there before the seats were put in. I...

    Bees v. Hull Predictions

    Couldn't see a thread for the Hull game, so have started one. 3-1 to the Bees. Jansson, Mbeumo & Watkins. Att. 11,200 One of my rare trips to GP this Saturday. As an aside, I'll be sitting in Braemar for the first time in over 20 years. Bringing my daughter as it's kids for a quid (we'll win -...

    Kicking the ball out if a player is injured

    Apparently, Lee Johnson has written to all other 23 championship clubs to say his team won't kick the ball out if a player is injured and that the decision to stop play should be left to the referee. https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/49251887 I actually agree, as there are too many times a...

    Bit of fun - remaining fixtures this season

    I think the play offs are beyond us, but thought as we're on the run-in (14 games), to see how many points I thought we might get. We're not the most predictable of teams, but here's my effort: Brum (H) Win (3) Leeds (A) Win (3) Cardiff (H) Loss (0) Burton (A) Win (3) Millwall (A) Draw (1)...

    Points lost from winning positions this season

    After Boro coming back twice from being behind, we have, I think, now lost 12 points from winning positions so far in the league this season. Those points would put us right up there. Someone posted that the substitutions on Tuesday gained us a point and the ones yesterday helped lose us 2. I...

    Retrospective Bans for Diving

    The FA has approved retrospective action for diving. http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/39962886 Long overdue in my opinion and I hope this will eradicate the amount of cheating that goes on. Not only that, I hope it extends to the ones who go down like a sack of spuds clutching their face...

    2nd top scorers in the Championship - anything to boast about?

    Lots of debate at the moment as to whether our strike force is a problem, given we have scored 37 goals so far this season, 2nd only behind Fulham. We know we let too many goals in, but I've done a bit of research and have actually changed my mind on this to thinking we haven't actually scored...

    Drugs in Darts

    I notice that Richie Burnett (ex BDO World champion) has been banned for 18 months, due to cocaine being found in a drugs test. http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/0/darts/34593161 What made me laugh was this quote from someone at anti-doping: "All athletes adhere to the principle of strict liability...

    Newcastle or Hull to go down?

    Who would you most like to see relegated out of these two? Tough one for me. Part of me would like to see the Toon go down, due to Ashley and his mismanagement of this club, while claiming to be a fan. The other would like to see Hull down, due to their clown of an owner insistent on trying to...

    Brentford v Millwall : Reports & reaction

    Well, I'm not sure we are 'learning from our mistakes' are we? We knew what to expect from Millwall and got it. Our now customary mix up at the back and a ball over the top presented them with the lead and as we went for the equaliser, no surprise they got a second. Fantastic to get a point with...

    How many points do we need?

    After today, I reckon as few as 10 more wins (with a few draws thrown in) will be enough to finish in the top 2. Fully expect Wolves to be around 90 pts and still think Orient will falter (although surprised they're still up there - fair play to them). Can't see anyone else getting near. Short...

    Points from remaining fixtures - will 85 do it?

    Ok, hypothetical I know, but here's my estimate of the points we'll get from the rest of our games. I think 85 points will do it for 2nd place. Knock yourselves out and shoot me down in flames! Stevenage (A) - 3 Carlisle (A) - 3 Swindon (H) - 1 Preston (H) - 3 Sheff Utd (A) - 0 Notts Co (H) - 1...
