I read this board often, have never posted but couldn't not reply to this. You guys honestly have the most selective memories about our past and are just unbearably sanctimonious about our present.

'Understand what happened next'?! Yes, we did sing that but what about understanding what happened before...who remembers you lot singing about building 'flats on the cottage'????
Well if you like you can sing 'flats on Griffin Park' tomorrow :)

"Boohoo you sang nasty songs 30 years ago" meanwhile last week Fulham fans sing bantzy songs about Matthew Harding and helicopter crashes. Stay classy

Not crying about it, just giving some perspective to someone bringing up a song we sung almost 20 years ago.

Re Matthew Harding song if that happened (because it absolutely didn't and has never happened at the game) I'm sure it was a handful of idiots. We all have them...

and you have less than most, you have a higher % of "Tim nice but dims" IMO. We certainly have more filth following us than you have a more refined wally than us, I believe it's known as a Tarquin. I did sing "Flats on the cottage" that day and wished it had happened, that said I am all grown up now and wouldn't sing it again, I have laughed at Orient's demise though so I suppose I am vermin.

Bottom line is this, and most of us knew it from the start:

1) By the time the tickets went on sale, it was pretty clear that we had a chance of the play offs, and being the last game of the season against our local rivals (who not be willing or able to hide their desire to f*** our chances up) there would be enough Fulham fans coming out of the wood work to make it a near on sell out.

2) Most of this demand would surge throughout this last week, meaning that wherever tickets are now available, they are going to get snapped up.

Therefore the club should probably have said 'right, Brentford have got nothing to play for - except our own demise - and so they are getting blocks p5-p7 and that's that.

Half of P4 should have been cordoned off, and the rest of the end sold to only those with a booking history. Giving you 4,000 from the off would not have made this possible, and so I would rather have given the smaller allocation with no chance to buy elsewhere (sorry, but needs must and all that).

Worse case scenario it might have been half empty but so what?!? The club earns slightly less money, but the home team gets a bigger advantage, and the stewards/police get an easier day as they know where the barriers need to be at half time. Before the game, spirits are less likely to boil over anyway under the concourse, and after the game, Brentford could have been let out, with the other blocks being kept back - it couldn't be the other way round as most Fulham fans will want to stay behind to give the team the usual end of season reception (something that has been lacking in the last 3 years rofl. It could have been a condition of sale to any Fulham fan buying a ticket at the Putney End i.e. be prepared to stay behind for 15 minutes even if you can't be arsed to see the lap of honour or whatever.

Anyway, all we can hope for now is a massive degree of tolerance throughout and hope that most Fulham fans stay behind in the Putney End afterwards anyway, otherwise it will be a miracle if everyone files out peacefully as if they were all best mates :eek:

All I'd say to those with kids is, if you want to keep out of trouble you should hopefully be able to, and I just hope that everyone is sensible enough to remember who's around them if they decide to get a bit lairy.

I keep trying to re-assure myself that there will be no issues, but it's hard to see how, due to the nature of beered up football fans in close proximity to each other - maybe a draw and Leeds getting beat well before the end? I dunno......
Following on from that (and I am making up the P's here as I can't remember the number of blocks), they could have given us P4, 5, 6, 7 and kept P1, 2, 3 for Fulham. Start selling tickets from P1 to Fulham and P7 to Brentford, as it fills up move across a block. Eventually they will meet in the middle and that is the segregation point, whoever sells the quickest and the most gets the next block etc.

It is not rocket science is it? I assume the marketing people are far more interested in trying to sell seats to Chinese tourists than the whole concept of football, local rivalry and the fact football isn't American football is completely lost on these 22 year old graduates who don't recall the 70's.

Nah, I prefer my method - would prefer to have given you p5-p7 and that's it. From a purely partisan viewpoint, I wouldn't have given Brentford more than the initial allocation on this particular occasion.

100% agree with your last sentence though, although would extend the 70s to 80s/early 90s in this case ;)

Can I get in early here, a long time ago you had the chance to mess up our season and keep your PO chances going, result was 4-0 at HT and our team and fans spent the second 45 thinking about Peterborough away thus saving you guys from a real hiding, a couple of seasons ago we were wobbling, tired and looking like blowing a PO chance, result was 4-1 in your own backyard, these end of season Derby defining games have been kind to us and should you finally edge one then it will still be 2-1 in our favour, is that ok?;);):wave:

I hope it doesn't kick off by the way, good healthy hatred without fists is the way forward these days, CCTV and violence change one's life.:(
OK, so if we win, then you are still winning? is that what you're saying?!! OK ... hope that makes you feel better!

Ever been to an NFL game in the states? I can assure you many of them are not family friendly and not somewhere you'd want to take your kids.

The comedy value is much higher on here. Not sure which is my favourite so far - the " I bought tickets in the home end, its an outrage that Fulham sold them to me" or the "If we lose we are still winning because it will be 2 - 1 overall" or the priceless "we have more filth than you" ! Perhaps it just the fact that you have a 37 page thread on the game. Either way, its been very amusing. I'm outta here now but I'll be sure to pop back on Monday to congratulate / commiserate with you, as that seems to be the expected thing. Enjoy the game & stay safe.

You don't do comedy, you couldn't see that I was taking the pee, take your serious Tarquiness to people who understand it, if we win we'll see you in a year or so and play "Where's Wally" on here in your absence.

Now given you're not the sharpest of tools be interested to get your view on this one.
The neutral end, is it genuinely intended for people who don't follow Putney or the visitors and just want to watch a live football match?

Has it worked in your opinion ?

Genuine question which I am trying to word in a way that isn't rude...but do you lot love/get so smug about the whole 'posh tarquin' thing because it's the only way you can feel any kind of superiority over us?

Anyway I am sure you will nick a win tomorrow so enjoy your big day out and best of luck for next season

See, a few teams think that they are our big day out, Reading said it when we took 3k plus there, QPR say the same and it must be so much fun to think that you are a big day out to anyone as I don't feel that superior to any other team, they enjoy the drinking facilities at GP and it's London but I would never be so cocksure to call my team this nonsense but each to their own.

I thought Chelsea was our big day out? Oh wait, wasn't it Villa? Or actually, Newcastle said something similar. Hmm. Guess we have a lot of big days out? Can't complain. Love a big day out, myself.

It's fact, when you were s*** during the 80's and 90's before the odious Egyptian shop keeper after a passport bought you, have a look at your average gates.
You have a very small fan base comprising a a healthy percentage of proper supporters and they will tell you there was a genuine rivalry between us until you left us behind.
By the time you'd reached the top end of the second tier you'd sold out and filled your home games with non Putney supporters, the Tarquins and Ruperts who purchased season tickets to watch Premiership football not support their local club. You also attracted an extremely dislikable group of fickle z list non celebs who were keen to be captured on MOTD but soon disappeared when they didn't recognise the names of the funny little towns you encounter when outside of the top tier.
Why else do we ridicule you and regard you as a non entity, oh yes you adopted a paedo as your celebrity fan and even erected a statue outside.
Co incidentally you got rid of that as soon as the fly by nights got rid of you and now you resort to bumping your gates up by giving away several hundred comps to school kids with tacky clackers on the seats to try and create an atmosphere.
That's why outside of about 3,500 fans the rest of you we see as Tarquins and Ruperts.

The irony is that if we did have a 'big day out' this season, it wasn't Villa, Fulham or QPR...it was Burton.
Sorry for assuming the last away game of the season would be a big day out like it is for 99.9% of other match going football fans in the country.

No it's not, it's often the worst attended away fixture for teams with nothing to play for you fool?

Again apologies if I have interpreted the title of this thread and the rush to buy tickets in the neutral area in case you couldn't get one in the away end wrongly, and assumed it was an away fixture you all looked out for and forward to.

That's fine, but if you grab your crotch whilst standing on tip toes I'm calling the police. Seeing you moonwalk would be a sight though!

Maybe not but it will make me smile on my big day out, I only ever do one away game a season so I must make the most of it.
I guess the half-and-half scarf's getting an airing again, then!

As I'm in the neutral section methinks it was a fine purchase all of those years ago and will come in handy to keep me under the radar, I also am debating on getting out the Gladiator hand and possibly bringing my blow up doll again with the extra feature of real hair. Decisions, decisions.
