    Supporter Numbers

    Inspired by the rather morbid task of having to cancel someone's season ticket after their passing, I wonder what the lowest existing supporter number is - you know, the one you have one your Season Ticket. My neighbour was in the 2700s and although I've been going for near 20 years I only...

    I’m a short term supporter

    I realise that I’m a “short term” supporter and have been for 20 years. I’m madly happy tonight because we won. I get my joy from short term fixes rather than longer term positions like league finish. Plenty of people saying “yeah but wait until we play Watford and it matters” but im already...

    Bear vs Billam

    You might have seen an advert in the Huddersfield programme and on the big screen about what's happening last season's bear. Since the bear's retirement from football it's feeling a bit left out. There's a new brown bear in town; the charity has a new ambassador..... it's all gone south for...

    View from the posh seats

    By a long and boring set of circumstances I was in the posh seats at city today. Some observations: 1) City make a fortune in hospitality. The Tunnel Club is just weird. But you can’t argue with the millions it brings in. They’ll make more on prawn sandwiches than we do on the whole ground...
