Returning to the ground

Where fellow sufferers gather to share the pain, longing and unrequited transfer requests that make being a Wanderer what it is...

Stop ruining my fun!
Apologies.. turns out they couldn’t agree a deal with the EFL for the plethora of red shite ‘commercial partners’ that are suddenly interested in supporting a team that 5 years ago, played in orange and no feck* outside of the Manchester Saturday league had heard of

Grass roots apparently according to their new supporter base, who are apparently tired of a foreign billionaire with no interest in the local area ripping the soul out of their club.

Erm..........

I've only just realised that my last away game was the 7-1 drubbing at Accrington, and my last home game was the 0-0 draw with Accrington. :|

Was a good day out though. The only time I've met you and Domingos. My mate came down from Bolton and I had a horrific hangover the next day (was stinking and had ketchup in my beard, according to the lady lucky enough to wake up next to me).
Next season...

Didn’t think we’d be waiting over a year to get to another game, when we were all standing on that terrace.

I'm going to be honest: while not going up would be something of a disappointment now (whodathunkit?), it would be tinged with the possibility of seeing some fresh grounds. (And possibly absolutely harrowing this division.)

I could have done up to 10 away games this season, 8 of which would have been new grounds.

If we stay in this league (we will), then we have the prospect of Wiggin, Rochdale and the Wombles again. And, quite possibly, Sutton Utd - a ground I have been to; makes Wimbledon's ground look like Wembley.

New grounds are always good, but at this stage I’d rather us get the hell out of here!

Think I’m on around 62-63 at the moment, but new grounds and teams coming up from the NL have reduced that by a few.

Absolutely this. Morecambe and Harrogate the two that spring to mind straight away.
