Discussion in 'The Hornets' Nest - Watford Chat' started by Bore, Apr 8, 2019.
Good point. Lets go with '2 nil and you f*cked it up'.
Well, a shoutout of the Watford fans who started punching and trying to get into our Uber we’d booked from the Watford Met station, all manner of abuse at the driver and punching the car and tying to open doors. I only mention it as a demonstration that all clubs have idiots supporting them. We chatted to wolves fans on the tube in, they gave us bottles of beer and was really nice atmosphere...
Ahh the old laxatives in a beer bottle wheeze, how I've missed you.
It was Bud, so it wasnt all good... but didnt make anyone ill!
Surely Harry will be wearing a mask? To think Wolfie was once his best man
Saw him the other day and he was into a bit of M+S.
Shopping basket included, 4x Free-range egg custard tarts, a Thomas the Tank Engine easter egg and a fish and chip meal for one.
I've never seen a support with so many smokers.
If it's any consolation a lot of them will live relatively short lives in the anus of England.
Yep, arseholes in all fan bases. Was just highlighting my experiences yesterday.
How about 2-0 then we stepped it up......
It's funny because I had quite a negative impression of the Wolves fan base before yesterday and yet my own personal experience made me think I had been unfair and that they, like every single football club, have a minority of complete and utter ***** but that most are pretty decent. Didn't have one bad experience and the crowd I walked down Wembley Way with was very good natured. When some Watford fans started singing "2-0 and you ****** it up", the Wolves fans responded by singing back "2-0 and we ****** it up".
Also my son was getting squashed in the bottleneck at the top of the queue for the train and a number of wolves fans made space, checked he was ok and stopped the crowd pushing despite his yellow and black shirt.
We dont really need this comment about the minority giving football fans a bad name thing every time do we? If you've been watching football for any length of time you'll have been tarnished as second class people and cattle herded around away grounds over the years because you're afootball fan.
Like it UEA, but maybe this would be a slight improvement: -
"We're on our way back
We're on our way back
We're going back to Wembley
we're on our way back"
And repeat it over and over again
In the current toxic climate of increased racism in football this needs calling out. It is disliked for the following:
- Use of 'gypo'. As tasteless and just as racist as the use of p*** or n*****.
- Generalisation of a whole set of fans. It's clear from this board that the vast majority of Wolves fans, based on our fans' experiences on Sunday, are decent supporters. The same goes for fans of the other teams picked out. Every team has its badly behaved minority, including ours.
- Irony. The implication here is that the poster puts himself up as classy in comparison to those he criticises, yet his post suggests anything but.
Unfortunately this post represents the sort of stereotyping and prejudice that leads some people to think that discrimination, including racism, is acceptable. It also helps create the sort of atmosphere that might lead to violence at football grounds, something which no true fan of football wants.
Oh look the chief happy clapper has spoken.
Your opinions are meaningless so I won’t bother biting.
Football is tribal and club rivalry is built on an often irrational and certainly generalised dislike of another team's fanbase. Take that away and you're left with stadiums full of tourists watching the match through their iPhones.
I thought I'd better give you something to correct. With My Compliments/Complements
A sort of Hogg nod back.
I'm surprised Willis didn't storm forward to lash it in.
Corrected for you.
Was Boris playing? He's an Old Etonian two-timer
By replying you have bitten of course.
It says a lot that you chose to insult me and my opinion rather than engage in reasoned discussion.
Nothing wrong with a bit of club rivalry. It's when it spills over into hatred and violence that it becomes unacceptable. Use of racist terminology does nothing but stoke the flames of hatred.
Feeling irrational hatred for the opposition is an essential part of the authentic football fan experience!
Dislike maybe, but not hatred!
Intense dislike, bordering on loathing!
Worth watching the semi-final vid (the one with GT at the start) to see the difference between the two sets of fans. Doherty scores and runs across in front of our fans to celebrate, our fans sit, resigned, disappointed but calm. Deuleufeo scores winner, Wolves fans apoplectic hurling abuse at him in impotent rage. Lol.
I noticed that too. I liked the way Deeney picked Deulofeu up and turned him around.
Would be deemed unacceptable behaviour in most places of work these days.
Not if you explained it by stating, as his line manager, you were simply "pro-actively re-aligning his ongoing development in accordance with current company objectives", surely?
Troy could certainly realign Geri if he wanted to.
Did he also turn him into someone new?
Wonder if he'll have the world at his feet 5 years later on ?
Apparently, Wolves haven’t won this season wearing their changed strip of white shirts. Unless they have a third shirt they’ll obviously be wearing the white again at The Vic. Three points to us then
