Pay As You Play ?
« on: Apr 22, 2009, 10:27 »
After losing four-nil away at Schalke in the German Bundesliga at the week-end the players of Energie Cottbus felt so bad for the 600 travelling supporters who had taken the 760-mile round trip to watch them play (their sixth defeat in seven games) that yesterday they paid back a full refund on all the tickets for the 600 supporters as a way of saying "sorry". Must've been a really poor game...

You're born alone, you die alone.  Anything in between is make believe.

I think you had better be quiet about that Alex .............. if the fans of the North East teams got wind of that it would have bankrupt Newcastle, Sunderland and Middlesborough this season.  :roll: :lol:

Yes, our away game at Pompey soon could be dear :lol:

It's a luvly thought, though, players being very aware how let down supporters can feel at times taking things into their own hands like this. Bit like Quinny did a couple of seasons back when he sorted it so a bunch of away supporters could come home after a game somewhere being otherwise stuck. Though I don't remember if we lost that game but still.
