The Week That Was

Sometimes when it comes to Friday and The Week That Was there’s an element of scratching around to see what interesting stories we can find – managers complaining about refs EVERY week can get a bit boring after all.

Cardiff fans protest as WBA allocation cut

Cardiff City fans will tomorrow (Tuesday December 8th) hold a protest following West Bromwich Albion’s decision to cut the Bluebirds’ ticket allocation to 1,300 – teams are normally given around double this at the Hawthorns. Cardiff City Supporters’ Club (CCSC), an FSF affiliate, is organising the action which will take place outside Sandwell Police Station (in the centre of West Bromwich, one mile from the ground) at 6pm for around 15 minutes. This will allow everyone to attend the game itself and will cause no disruption to locals, just the authorities who sanctioned the ticket reduction.
