Because the close season is fucking shit.

Can be aimed at a player, a random "observation", owt you've heard fans saying at matches that you found funny.

Most recent one for me was during the Ipswich match at BDTBL. Girl shouted something to the Ipswich keeper along the lines of "Oi Gerken, noone wants you in their Big Macs!" ...well, it made ME laugh at least :oops:

Another one which stands out for me- during the Clough era when the average height of our midfield was 3'8", I overheard a bloke saying "we've got more midgets than the fucking chocolate factory!"

Over to you...

I remember an opposition goalkeeper catching a ball and a bloke behind shouting ‘handball’ at the top of his voice.

Not particularly funny on its own but 5 rows of people turned and stared at him.

Years later we shout handball whenever he opens his mouth

4th division game at Wigan sat in their 'main' stand among locals
They'd recently been 'promoted' from non - league and we'd swiftly tumbled down the leagues

Old fella next to me got a tad irate as his team went 1 down (Edwards from recollection?) and advised me:
"If this is first division football, I'm glad we're in the fourth"

Wouldn't Nigel Adkins have played for Wigan that day, or was he a little later on?


Back in the Bassett days one of our agricultural centre halves had left an opponent prostrate face down on the turf when somebody on the kop yelled "ref, that cunt's eating our fucking grass"
Plenty of grass eating going on on the Kop if you know what I mean...

I think it was Kenworthy, Edwards hadn’t been re signed at that stage of the season.

Guy in front of me at the Boro game back in 98/99? Merson picked up the ball out in the wing right in front of us and this fella decided to hurl some abuse at him “MERSON YOU....(remembers he has a small child with him).... SMELLY GIT”

Ill never forgot it

Doubt it - I'd have recognised / remembered the twat even then !?!

Game was September 82 (1-0 win) & according to thickypedia NA was on Tranmere's books at that time - as you say he went to Wigan later (1985)

Does beg the question as to whether he played for Tranmere agin us ?
