German football clubs welcoming migrants
by Superfrans at 15:50 3 Sep 2015

I'd be immensely proud of my nation and football club if they followed this example. This is how a civilised country behaves.

From BBC Online:
'German football giant Bayern Munich has announced a 'training camp' for asylum seekers, in which children and young people will receive German lessons, meals and kit. At the next home game on 12 September, the players will enter the arena holding the hand of a German child and an asylum seeker child, the club said.
One million euros from a friendly game will be donated to asylum projects.
"FC Bayern sees it as its social responsibility to help the refugees, needy children, women and men to support them and to accompany them in Germany," said club chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge.'

Great to see how international we are as a club. The Swedish supporters are having their AGM in Stockholm same afternoon before watching the match.

Interesting question at work
by Micknosehowtodoit at 15:24 3 Sep 2015

Well not really interesting but ended up into an interesting discussion.


Why do we pay to use the toilet in some places.

Surely we have no choice but to go for a pss or a sht, if required we can go where ever we please, but no, it's against the law and we must use toilets.

So, why is it ok for London stations to charge? granted it's not a lot but why should they be allowed to charge for something that we're being stopped from doing anywhere we want?

Android TV boxes
by Johnny_Boy at 14:38 3 Sep 2015

So after lots of research & a few suggestions - I opted to purchase the MX3 2GB TV box.
It arrived last night, fully loaded with KODI/XBMC. Cost me $65.

First impressions? It's tiny. Too wee. Seriously, it fits snugly in the palm of your hand.
Set up was straight forward. Remote control isn't as bad as I was expecting.
AC power cord was a little on the short side, it must be said.
Having problems getting AirPlay to work with Media Centre (not connecting) & issues with AirPlay not working properly with KODI (apparently after the last Apple update, only audio can be used with the current AirPlay - if you have an Android device, the Miracast should be fine)

So I only had 2hrs to browse the thing before I collapsed to bed.
Favourited a load to UK channels & a crap load of sports channels (UK - all Sky Sports 1-6 + F1, BT Sports) as well as USA (Fox Soccer 1 & 2, BeIn Sports 1-???, NBC Sports, PPV channels)

Plus all the regular UK + US TV channels.

I thought to myself at midnight, "This is an impressive bit of kit" - weird, because at the time I'd just stumbled upon Homes Under The Hammer on BBC2.

Well worth the money folks.

Well done all.

As a member of the SW crew thanks to Tony and the gang I've met some absolute legends who I attend games with.

Being based in Bristol I have had to invite many a friend over the years to games with them not being hugely interested but now it's so easy to go games with people.

Also, every town game is shown in our designated pub in Bristol often with 20-30 people attending and it's rising. Helped massively by having 10+ games on the box last season.

Then there is meet the players - will meet Skuse tomorrow, met Marcus Stewart, we had Mings down last season and Terry Butcher.

It's been absolutely class.

Migrant issue
by kizaitfc at 12:50 3 Sep 2015

As much as it pains me to see these devastating pictures

The truth is if we really were to open up our borders, the amount of migrants we would have come through would be astronomical, as the migrants would admit, and many have stated we are by far the most appealing country to migrate to due to our generous system.

The issues need resolving but opening our borders is most definitely not the answer we are one of the smallest countries and could not deal with it.
