    You’d better hurry up with that order mate, pie and mash shops are rapidly becoming a thing of the past.

    I don’t think the stadium is the problem tbh.

    Been listening to a lot of Steve Jones' LA radio station shows on youtube lately and he says the only thing he misses from London is pie and mash and the last time he was over here he nearly overdosed on the stuff and had vinegar pouring out of his eyes!.
    He said his local pie and mash shop was in Shepherds Bush but has recently closed and it was the one that featured in Quadrophenia when Jimmy met his Rocker mate.
    This was a good one with two of my music heroes...

    I've yet to hear that Jonesy's jukebox but I was suprised just how many Musicians he is mates with.

    He did an album called, from memory, Fire and Gasoline - has Axl and Slash, plus Billy and Ian from The Cult on it. He's a very popular lunatic out in LA.

    Just been reading that West Ham have dropped 22 points from winning positions, the worst record in the Premier League this season.
    So, falling behind shouldn’t be the end of the game, so long as it doesn’t happen at the end of the game, of course.

    So, we don’t want to go behind, and we don’t want to go in front either?

    Saints to be 2 up by half time and 3 up within 10 minutes of the second half starting ..... and keep chasing them down so they don't get chance to settle.

    Play hard, play fair and play to win, with no chance of a nervous last 20 minutes. Find a friendly pub, and smile all the way home.

    Sounds perfect to me.

    I'm hoping for a stand out game from Shane Long's Wong.

    I'd say that, and all the bullshit around it (Retractable seating, no further from the pitch than Wembley etc.) is a big part of it but not all I suppose.

    Banning people for wearing 'GSB out' t shirts and sending stewards to away grounds to confiscate banners probably isn't going to do much for owner/supporter relations mind.


    I just don't understand why people are painting the stadium move as a positive of their ownership? They went from one of the best and tightest grounds in the country to an athletics stadium that they're not even allowed to improve!

    I mean, I'm no real fan of St Marys but at least it's a purpose built football ground.
