London away .....very 2004

For our friends in the norf......Alternate means other :wink:
JESUS WEPT :WALL: HOW MANY TIMES?????
£20 a ticket and £15 on beer and merchandise.....so an away fan is worth £35. At best, 1,000 is the average away support split across 11 rounds and I am being really generous here, so Toronto, replacing say Wakefield will cost a SL club £35,000.
The minimum turnover of a SL club is £4,000,000 so Toronto instead of Wakefield is worth less than 1% of a SL clubs turnover.

There are many valid reasons for and against expansion into America, but "AWAY FANS" isn't one of them. :BEAT:

I think you (and the intellectuals at London) mean "alternative". Alternate means to keep doing or using one thing and then another (unless London do plan to wear one shirt and then the other every other game, regardless of being at home or not?). Alternative means to be available as another possibility or choice.

Mind you, we're all thicko's up here in the "Norf", so I'm probably wrong.

It means two different things depending on whether you emphasise the "ter" or the "ate".

Ok, Ok, so I was just having a poke back. My understanding of the "other" meaning of the word (with the emphasis on "ter") was that this was a US pronunciation and use of the word. Hence if New York enter our league, then it would be correct. :)

Anyway, a slightly early Happy New Year to everyone.

Best Wigan kit for quite a while IMO

Could anyone tell me what the 4 stars above the Wigan crest are for?

I wasn't sure if it was for their 4 World Club Challenge Wins or for their 4 GF wins?

It is WCC wins. Surprised other clubs don’t do the same. I think national football teams started it off with stars for World Cup wins.

World Cup in football is the pinnacle or Champions League in club football. Winning a WCC is a nice bonus that usually gets downplayed with excuses when an English team wins. It's down the pecking order compared to GF or CC wins.
