EIHL thread anyone?

Recommended Posts

Do we have many UK hockey followers here? 

 

We (Clan) just out our head coach Pete Russell (teamGB coach). This sucks.

I follow it from a distance, checking in on the Nottingham Panthers from time to time.  I studied abroad at the University of Nottingham back in the day and the city still holds a place in my heart.  Still a big Forest fan, and although I have never caught a Panthers game live, I have visited the National Ice Center.  Nice place!

I'm having trouble picking out a favorite team based on logos/names. If the Basingstoke Bison were still around, they'd be it.

Figured you to follow (Keith) Gretzky's old squad, but they've probably been gone for a while as well.

Thanks. The logo appears to be lifted straight from the Goathead.

When I wore my goathead sabres top at the finals weekends used to get loads of abuse as people though I was a bison fan😀

Yay, hockey is back. The Clan won the preseason tourney against snake Russell's new team 😂. Tonight we'll be opening the challenge cup against the Dundee stars. The players seem to enjoy playing under new HC "fitzy". Can't wait to get to the arena tonight. It'll be my mates first hockey game too!

3-6 loss. Defending was pretty poor from the clan. Dundee were quicker, their backchecking was very good. We were very static overall. Not a great show. At least it's not league play, just the cup. Get the missing D back from injury in the next few games.,

Thread bump.

 

Clan V Flyers today for the new years eve bash! @steveoath v @Sabre1974 😀First of 2 back to back games for one of the best rivalries in the league (even if supporters are getting tired of poor performances on the ice). 

Clan are playing like the Sabres. Rubbish PP, leaking goals (5 per game recently). However my lucky charm (jnrOath) is with me for today's game and she's never seen the Clan lose! 

I'm going for a come from behind win 5-4 clan.

Wow, didn't expect that at all. 5-1 to the Clan 💪

And for the old school fans a proper fight after a dodgy hit. 

Happy new year!!

Well deserved win. Should also win return game on Saturday. Flyers not in a good place at the moment.

Glasgow Clan.   I’m all in.

I am warming to “proper fights after dodgy hits”.  Rodric MacJeanneret!

Next game Saturday night 7.15pm away to fife flyers - my eihl team. 

Was going to go to this one but when our face off changed to 1pm it was a no contest. Sabres take priority and always will (unless my other team - Indianapolis colts) had made NFL playoffs😢

Standard is ok probably on a par with the German del 2 league. Crowds are ok. Flyers usually average 1500. Clan more in 2500-3000 range although sabreoath will know better than me.
