The area they were all in is pretty much a corporate area? They all fuck off at HT for a prawn sandwich. Anyone can get a ticket in there as long as you can afford it

Correct me If I'm wrong....
Nope. They were all over. Top tier mainly. I had a good 100 or so in the next block to me but they were right up in the gods. My mate was in the gods around the other side of the stadium and he was two rows in front of at least another 100 he was saying.

Standing on the concourse they were strolling about eating their chicken burgers and what have you.

I have nothing against away fans nor Italians nor chicken burgers, but away fans ( and possibly them chicken burgers ) should never be allowed in the home end. Simple as that. The stewards were pathetic. Jacket fillers with no real interest in safety

My pal sent a complaint to the club who came back saying although there were Juve fans in the home end, they were peaceful and just wanted to support their team. They apologised for any inconvenience caused and that the club never sold tickets knowingly to Juve fans but that security prefer fans inside the stadium as opposed to outside the stadium.

So sort of basically said, ‘couldn’t really give a fuck’?

Thanks for the email but wind your neck in and suck it up. We really couldnt care less who buys a ticket as long as we get the money for it

Hope you enjoyed the game. Don't choke on your next Pizza

LOOOOOOOL I love how now we've finished in the Top 4, both Poch and Lloris are like 'We've been playing away from home this season.'
Love it it’s all media spin earlier in the season of course it’s a fucking huge disadvantage. Fair bloody play to the boys, back in our new home will be a big boost next Season.

Great effort from the team tonight as you can see how much we're struggling at the moment

Thoroughly deserved top 4 over the course of the season

Goodbye to Wembley Sunday and good fucking riddance. Horrible place

I was out at the final whistle at about 9.50pm, then on my train at Victoria at 10.34
I think only having 55k people there, who had already started dispersing by then helped.

And that does beg the question of how many times NWHL will be full next season? Last night’s game was quite an important one also.

Does anyone think the move to Wembley might be why we've looked so fatigued lately? There always been rumours that it's a draining pitch to play on....

I think that’s 100% the case, various players and managers have said it’s a heavy pitch. That together with the intensity we play at usually, and clusters of injuries in certain positions have left us blowing like James Corden chasing a donut down a hill.

12 wins, 4 draws, 2 deserts so far. 5th in the home league table. This is where we lost points though, we are 2nd in the away table
Which is astonishing considering we lost away at City, United and Arsenal, only drew at Anfield and our only win against the top 6 away was Chelsea. (how great was that though!)

Could be, could also be the fact a world cup is coming and we looked exactly as "knackered" at exactly the same time 2 seasons ago when the Euro's were coming up.

I'd say 90% - per my above comment :)

I don't think we've got enough credit for achieving champions league in Wembley.

The red seats are another disadvantage that is rarely mentioned. I was chatting with an Ipswich fan the other day and I put the concept of playing for a year in a random stadium in the east but all the seats would be yellow and green. He looked horrified.

I wonder if the kit designer at Puma in charge of the Woolwich contract has been told to take into consideration the colour of the seats? With so many empty at each match, if the red was too similar it'd be easy to lose sight of teammates during the game :whistle:

Though Wembley has its faults looking at our train from Deal full of Yids today it has got people who were not regulars at WHL going to matches again.
Tickets much easier to get hold of.
