No longer my beloved NAM
Their calling card would be a claim form.
If they got caught they would spend ages making up excuses not to pay you out your money. I think they must have also worked on the 1st Draft of project season ticket refund 💻

Any claims for flag damage would have an impact on their 'no claims bonus' boom boom ! :sleep:

In the shed.
Are the missing flags ones that might be considered “regimental flags” carried at “conflicts“ around the uk and Europe? I doubt they would find a place at LR.

I more likely explanation is that the Club said that flags could be collected from GP but that those not collected would be taken to LR.

Remind me to tell you the story about when we put Tidy zoo flag up in the Bell in Ruislip after the Sheffield United away game that was postponed. We had northolt finest that day. Lol
That hot bed of Rara fans. Do tell.

We should certainly have these up. How many have we got, a dozen or so? Plenty of space for newer ones too.
A dozen??????
I know of a dozen Hanwell / Bees flags, nevermind everyone elses.

Flags that have people’s names on them are NOT football flags. They are utter sh*te and need to be piled up on the centre spot and burnt.
You do know that these flags have to be certified as fire-resistance and therefore your plans falls at this first hurdle?

The other ones though.... :)

OK, not sure I generally see a dozen Hanwell or Bees flags at away games but as my first home was in Hanwell as a baby I’ll take pride in that.

I would be adverse to a flag from each of our players’ nations but down properly
If I'm translating you right, we had a small interest in sorting out a Czech one with the Zamburek connection... Having not dabbled before, can someone tell me what sort of size is right for these? Rubbish with this sort of thing, but once I know, I can start to ask around locally for a supplier...

You have translated me right, I meant ‘wouldn’t’

I’d be very happy to soak them all for 24 hours in a mixture of aviation fuel and white spirit to help assist their incineration.

agree......its something a premership club would put thinking no one would notice......never seen any of those fkin flags at an away game in the last 40 years........sort it out brentford and stop trying to be clever with chaps who know the score

At least people are doing their best, Give us a clue what you would like them to be made of, for example, what's your one like? I Don't think I've seen it shown. ;)

Its not a “tour”. You get to view the lounge you’re ST is in and then your seat. Then you go home!

Club have put out their can & cant bring in poster for Lional.

And it states no flag bigger than 2m x 1m allowed in.

That rules out any proper flags.

Another one we were fooled in to believing when they said they’d be accommodating flags.

I wonder if we’ll carrying on our long standing tradition of accommodating away fans more than home fans, one step allowing them to bring proper flags.

That will be to bring in on the day, bigger flags will be accomdated if arranged in advance.

Will that be doable for those who take them home and away ?

Things are always negotiable, remember laptops were officially banned from Griffin Park but I took mine in all the time if coming straight from work.

I didn't say you see them at away games.
In fact, it's difficult to put your flags up at away games.

I expected the rule on flags.
It follows all the other decisions made without fan consultation.

Well, they said the new ground will allow those who bring flags to bring them, but then put it out on the poster 2m x 1m maximum.

I feel the same, that its another wool over the eyes jobby from the "powers" that be.

But hobbsy is more involved and in the know so hopefully what he said is the case.

I thought the 2m x 1m restriction and the fire labelling was in the GP list of items that could/could not be brought into the ground.

If that's the case, I've had a flag at the back of the New Road Stand for years,
it never had a fire cert / label and is more than double that size.

I'm not a flag person but I seem to recall a discussion about it some years ago. It may be that yours was prior and it's probable that it wasn't really enforced anyway.

Yes probably.
I also have the "brother"of the big Jack at the back of New Road.
It's in tip top condition, full of colour and new, stitched, off white lettering,
all complete with a fire cert / label. Shame it will never be put up in the new place.

The flags all along the back of new road, in ealing road are far bigger than 2x1 .
i used to put mine in the ealing/braemar corner of the paddock, on the seats before our crowds went up.

Mine is fire certified and i will be sitting at the back of the north stand. Mine & those with me could easily put ours up behind us

Why won't it be put up at the new place?

The ground regulations cover what a fan can bring into the stadium through the turnstiles. They do not cover what a fan may bring in by handing it over to a specified staff member from the operations team in order to be displayed within the stadium.

Because it's much larger than 2M x 1M.
You cant take it in but you can hand it in for them to put up permanently. Tell them its a replacement flag with a fire certificate to replace the one in the New Road

I wouldn't really want this one up permanently mate,
because of the condition and the lettering, it's very nickable.
Also, I don't think some of the London Irish would take to a big "Jack"
being flown in the ground.
