    Saw Seagull over leicester doing excellent work outside the ground with his nipper - right by club shop with a special kiosk thingy as well.

    Handed out loads of leaflets in the hospitality lounge and had a qucik word with Brian Mawhinney who said that he had regular contact with DK and that Prescott was well aware of his views on the issue.

    Programme piece was excellent - Diamonds were crap and Posh were full value for their 1-0 win.

      Will post a thank you letter to Berwick Rangers on Monday andn give special mention to their stewards who were superb. They let one of us stand at the car park gates and hand leaflets out with parking tickets to each car that came in .... brill guys and thanks - even if I didn't understand everything you said!

      Major signalling problem just outside Berwick meant I was stuck in Edinburgh for the afternoon. Very frustrating but glad you (and others) did such great work.

      Just back from Bournemouth. Shafted loads fo leaflets (400+) and people were very positive and friendly bar a couple. One Wycombe fan had a massive go at me - winging how we'd cost them money at the sit-in etc. Stewards were friendly and one even signed a letter. Steve Cotterill was there and signed a letter to Prescott. Another BHA fan there with a stall got loads fo letters signed. A full page in the programme. Really great stuff because both sets of fans were very very supportive and wished us luck.

      Swindon 2 Brentford 1

      I got to the ground circa 1.15pm, having walked from the station with a couple of Brentford fans, who (having clearly got to the ground much earlier than they expected), assisted me in giving out leaflets for a good half hour or so. I have to say the feedback was fantastic - Swindon devoted a whole page to the Falmer issue in their programme, which was a great help explaining what I was doing. Gave out 400 leaflets, and only got abuse from about half a dozen or so Swindon "fans". The vast majority were surprisingly interested, and quite a few found it amusing that a Brighton fan was attending a Swindon/Brentford game. At least 20 or so seemed VERY clued up on what was happening - indeed, the level of knowledge was much higher than that I experienced when leafletting at the Clock Tower. At least 25 or so Swindon fans actually said that Brighton was their second team, and they always looked out for our result. With it being just me, I was unable to give out leaflets AND get names/postcodeds for the post card thing, but at half time I did a tour of my section of the stdand, and got about 30 or so names of Swindon residents for Tim Carder.
      How many Swindon fans take up their pens and write remains to be seen, but I certainly have a MUCH higher regard for them than I had a few days ago - it really is FANS UNITED.

      Swindon (cont)

      Oh, by the way - got the cold shoulder from the Brentford youth team who turned up in a minibus, but couldn't be arsed to take any leaflets. Their goalkeeping coach DID however, take a leaflet. The Grimsby scout was also there (good bloke - Grimsby playing Swindon in a week or so), and he took a leaflet.

      Ah that's so annoying - another generation of footballers who separate themselves from the fans

      Me, Desert Orchid, Trish, Verily I Say..., Superphil, Superwife and 3 other Albion fans went to AFC Wimbledon v Cobham today. 2 of those fans took away the letters they collected, but the other 7 collected more than 300 letters at the ground and these will be passed on to Tim Carder this evening or tomorrow. Others will no doubt act later on the requests in the 2,000 leaflets we gave out.

      Response was predictably great. Wimbledon won 5-1 - nice to see a few goals for a change! - and it was a very enjoyable afternoon apart from the rain and hail soaking we got for 20 minutes.

      Thanks to all of those who helped us out.

      The three of us, Gloster Girl ( Sally), Kylie's Stunt Arse (Dan) and Moi, Gloster, set off to Whaddon Road, Cheltenham and arrived just after 1.30ish. Rosey, the parking steward, was on the car park gate and was expecting us. We had just parked when we were approached by western daily press reporter who said he would contact me for a story. it was a bit cold so I left Gloster Girl and KSA to hand out leaflets outside along with the clever business cards that i downloaded (I printed about 1,500 - and most went - the rest I left at Tescos!) I went into the club bar! The response was awsome most know of our plight and were happy to support the cause. "Wow youve come along way then!"
      "gloucester!" I replied (to some)

      We then got our "Staff" passes and were escorted round the ground to our seats.
      The match was very entertaining the ref was giving some funny decisions, as they do. 3 goals later just before half time it was 2-1 to Lincoln. Half time I walked around the ground and was let in with the lincoln supporters a few were there at the Goldstone! Again received very well.

      Lincoln down to 10 men it was a bit off a battle and Chelt deserved at least a draw. At one stage someone shouted "Seagulls, Seagulls!" and it wasn't us 3! 4 minutes to go Chelt scored 2-2 the crowd got behind them and in the last minute Chelt got the winner! Just time to kick off when the ref blew for full time!

      We walked back to the front and got our photo taken. Gloster Girl and KSA went back to the car and I thought I would go up to the players bar and boxes. Which I did! Again was greeted well as I handed out letters and postcards then I went down a corridor that said "Strictly No Entry - Directors Only" I knocked and entered ,err, I handed out leaflets and thanked the Chairman! I left and thought this was too good to miss so I went back for the camera and went back in! "Oh youre back said the Chairman and I asked if I could have a phot with him! We smiled and said Cheese! A result all round! I shall post the photos on Monday!

      A great day all round thanks for you're company KSA and gloster Girl! (or was that mustang?)

      Four of us were at Bury.

      We started off in the Social Club (beer poor so we drank the Guiness), talking to people as they came in, handing out leaflets, and collecting names and postcodes for the postcards. Most people were very supportive (even the Orient fans).

      Then we moved outside to catch people as they went in the ground.

      At half-time we were allowed to walk round the ground with a We Want Falmer Banner, and again received good support, apart from the away end who predictably gave us some stick.

      I have some pictures which I will post as soon as I have found somewhere to host them. (I assume I can't post them from my harddrive).

      The game was fairly poor, and it was bitterly cold, but I quite enjoyed the experience.
