    Minutes Applause Paul McCarthy

    The club have been in touch to say that they plan to hold a minutes applause in the 45 minute on Saturday against Reading.

    I understand Wycombe and Oxford are doing similar and Ebbsfleet and Crowborough will do so before their respective games.

      Despite all I've said on previous threads about not joining in any more when a minute's applause is announced as it has got ridiculous - I shall be clapping on Saturday.

      Good to hear. One of the few bright spots in difficult times, gone far too young. RIP

      Why can't it be done before the game ? It is a former captain and he should be given due respect

      I agree doing at a given minute does not seem the same.

      I've been very anti minutes applause of late on here, but this is an occasion where I think it certainly IS actually worthy of one. A player who many of us fondly remember, who was taken tragically young in his life.

      However, I think pre-kickoff would have been more appropriate. Applauding during a specific minute during a game is always vulnerable to being "hijacked" by events on the pitch.

      Plus, really, I'm watching the game. I won't really be thinking about Paul. And then there's those who'll have gone for the pie and pint queues.
