    Sum up North Stand Chat...


    0 Not allowed!
    Hi all,

    I'm teaching a PE lesson this morning on the influence of media on sport and amongst other things will cover the internet and the growth of unofficial websites and chat rooms such as NSC.

    Can you take a minute or two to summarise why you use this site, what you get from it and how different your Albion supporting would be without it?

    I'll check back towards the end of the lesson at 11:30ish.

    Cheers,
    Honest, I swear, its the turnstiles that make us hostile

      The best repository of Albion related information. And misinformation!

      Left it a bit late, haven't you?

      It means I am a lot better informed as an Albion Supporter, but you also have to be able to identify the rubbish to discount. It means you can have much more intelligent conversations with people about football, even if it is sometimes through a "Do you know there are even people who think that....." type of comment.

      You soon get to realise whose opinions are worth noting and listening to, who you should take with a pinch of salt, who are the good guys (and girls).

      Humour
      Immediacy (used to have to wait for Gull's Eye to get an alternative/irreverent view of your club)
      News & Gossip (although there's hardly ever any news/gossip in the new Albion set up)
      Able to contribute (sparingly in my case) to debate or just have a rant
      Listen to the vocal minority

      Albion supporting would be a bit more remote/individual without supporter interaction through NSC

      After a win, we're planning our Champions League trips in two years time
      After a defeat (even, apparently, to decent Premier League teams), we're slashing our metaphorical wrists

      Great having it when living in a different country. Not any albion supporters where I live, so its nice to keep in touch with whats going on.

      Some people have been really good to me too in one way or another, and this warms my cockles.

      see this made me laugh, its absolutely true and a very good reason to tune into NSC
      neuter and microchip and keep your cats in at night and just in case you lose one of the little buggers
      anyone who loses a cat can contact me by pm.

      This place is awful after a defeat. I can remember being on here after the 0-5 to Palace in 2002 and I swear it was nothing like as bad as nowadays when we lose a narrow 1-0 to one of the top sides.
