The number of Japanese seems to increase with every home game . They are lovely people and wonderful ambassadors for their country. The club shop must be doing a fantastic trade in Mitoma shirts !
Although my grandparents and great grandparents would not have approved of me going.The number of Japanese seems to increase with every home game . They are lovely people and wonderful ambassadors for their country.
Bournemouth chav fans ?directly behind me and my daughter east lower H block, were sat three Americans from New York one of whom supported the Albion who had flown over a few days ago, to watch Friday Fulham, yesterday Brighton, and today Tottenham. Sat next to them were four what I presumed were Japanese folk, and yes the club shop was absolutely rammed after the match with Japanese fans eagerly purchasing everything..
Whilst walking back to the shop, we walked in line with a few slightly disgruntled young chav Bournemouth fans who loudly asked with open arms (as they do) “Where’s all the Brighton fans, this place is full of chink tourists”
had my daughter not been with me, I may have slapped him, I was rather hoping someone would have done it for me.
They certainly have them. I passed a group singing about aids test results - charming bunch.Bournemouth chav fans ?
Fingers crossed they got the all clear - must be a worrying time for them.They certainly have them. I passed a group singing about aids test results - charming bunch.
He appears to be an Arsenal fan, unless Mitoma has converted him.That kids face after meeting Mitoma and getting his shirt signed is what it's about. Forgot the 'tourist' nonsense, that kid is a fan for life now, he'll never forget it. Just like when I met Johnny Crumlin back in '93. My brother has a lot of answer for dragging me along to the Goldstone.
I'm glad our club has a small part to play in moments like this.
Maybe if the club scrapped that nasty £20 charge for sharing a ST, more local low-income families with kids would be able to attend more games. Never used to be a problem when we had physical ST cards. It was a matter of honour to pass your card to a trusted friend to pass to a trusted friend if you couldn't attend. It was largely self-policing. I get it that the pandemic meant the club had to know exactly who was sat in every seat. But that's no longer the caseGreat to see the club getting attention from around the Globe and Japanese people coming to see Mitoma but there are local people especially from the Council estates near the ground on low incomes who can't afford to take the kids.
I know a family who just about scraped through to get the kids kits and can only take them to 3-4 games a year.
So there is another side to the story.
Just a bit weird to refer to people from a country in such a general way whether positive or negative.Well I enjoyed my brief return to NSC but if this has been taken so out of context and the original thread title was so offensive that it needed to be changed I’m off.
which is the main thing. Assuming they are lovely is a bit of a generalization although I’m not that bothered. I worked at Mitsubishi Bank and knew enough Japanese people to know you can’t generalize positively or negatively. Just like any other nationality. Stupid thread but that’s not the end of the world, is it. So are most of the threads on here,There were lots of Japanese fans in the club shop spending cash, which is nice!
If Mitoma is miraculously still here after the Summer, the club will have missed a major trick if they don't have huge numbers of pre-printed Mitoma shirts ready to fly off the shelvesThe number of Japanese seems to increase with every home game .

And if he’s gone we might be looking at a British record transfer. Insane to think we have two, maybe three of the most valuable players in the Premier League.If Mitoma is miraculously still here after the Summer, the club will have missed a major trick if they don't have huge numbers of pre-printed Mitoma shirts ready to fly off the shelves
