Sharing a train with them for 10 minutes was enough, nobheads the lot of them.Quite funny watching 5/6 start to run over the tarpaulin towards the home fans after they scored, to then bottle it after a handful of steps, make a few gestures and be dragged down by the stewards.
Never seen Cambridge as a game that brings out the idiots!
The infamous Blue Anchor pubIt's now called the anchor and been done up, much nicer prefer the treaty of commerce on the high St.
Away fans who are deemed a risk are normally put in the square sail on the brayford now. O definitely have nobheads too. Mostly the same age as that lot yesterday but some my age and older.
It's the stone island crew which every team see to have in their following.Thought we played well especially in the first half and really should have been in front.
Second half thought we overplayed and always wanted the extra pass and Cambridge grown into and started to catch us on the break and felt the goal was coming.
Thought the free kick was harsh but Dunk knows what he's doing , fair play, our giant keeper stays on his line (as usual) and Ironside has an easy finish.
No offence to Laker and SVH but a group of your 'fans ' thought they were auditioning for green street with their behaviour especially after you scored fighting with our stewards and spitting at them.
Huge police presence at the railway station to deal with them but oddly none went on the train with just the poor guard. One guy in pale top and a baseball cap spent of the game taunting our fans, wasn't surprised to see him at the station after, most of this would have been late teens to early 20s.
We have idiots too, just a shame they have to spoil for the majority.
Did anyone see that young lad on the EFL highlights show shouting 'wanker' over and over after MK's second goal?!
What on earth has happened to Fleetwood's pitch? Why were Donny not wearing their red and white home kit and when did Pompey lose a stand?!
That's the total for all three stand improvements. Effectively £16m to only retain what we have, hence why the Trust sold the club to the Eisner family. Fans could never has raised that, and there was no appetite to borrow and create debt again.£16m for that one stand?! Crikey.
A good question.When does it become cheaper or should I say more cost effective to demolish and rebuild to todays standards?
Ah right, £16m for three makes more sense.
If the Cowleys get you guys on a roll, it'll be interesting if they start pushing the issue a bit with infrastructure because they were always keen on improving off the field infrastructure as well as on it.
That is a now 50 year old question which has been asked countless times. I think i've seen five different stadium proposals in my life time alone!I take it there is no thoughts of relocating your ground to a new build?
I had hoped that having the Eisner family on board who had a history of stadium development with sports teams in the US that we would finally be able to get it done. From what we understand it is just not possible, plus Michael Eisner loves the history associated with Fratton Park and thinks that we lose the soul of the club if we leave.

While I agree ours is too big for us, it's fine when it's full. The thing is ours wasn't built just for MK Dons, it was built as a stadium for the town to attract big events and we are just one set of users. We don't own the stadium, the stadium (Inter MK) owns MK Dons.I would agree with them too. The last thing you want to do is move to a soulless stadium like Colchester or MK Dons.
I've heard that we're slowly buying up properties in the street behind the away end whenever they come on the market, so that we can eventually expand in that direction. Not sure how true this is?The away end is the most disappointing. Rather than demolishing and starting again (to create space under the stand), it is being modernised as-is. There will still be that narrow (albeit enlarged) strip at the back of the stand for kiosks and that's about it. Supposedly the material under the concrete profiling may be contaminated and it would cost millions to safely remove it, so they decided it was easier to keep it sealed under the concrete.
That's what we're doing with the Stacey West imminently (unless it's delayed because of costs, supply problems etc), and creating concourse areas under is (rather than currently out in the open as it currently is) and offices/rooms linked to the Foundation and Community areas of the Club.The away end is the most disappointing.

To the best of my limited knowledge, that isn't something which is at the plan stage at this moment in time. The house buying was more so to create better access and potentially additional car parking if enough could be bought up in a row. Obviously if it ever reached a point where enough had been bought out behind the South or the Milton it would open up greater opportunity for development.I've heard that we're slowly buying up properties in the street behind the away end whenever they come on the market, so that we can eventually expand in that direction.

If so then this would be similar to what other clubs with grounds in residential areas (e.g. Liverpool) have done. Obviously the process can take many years.
