Anyone planning on queuing up half the night with the great unwashed, to grab some half price bargain or other that they immediately try to resell on ebay to others of the great unwashed to lazy to get out of their beds to and queue for one themselves?

Another great American tradition unwanted over here in my opinion.

Or do you disagree?

Absolute waste of time, last year it was full of cheap Polaroid branded TV's that half the folk brought back the next day as they found out the picture quality was crap.

I find it pathetic that people these days are this materialistic queuing up to fight for stuff like this.

Absolutely not a fan and deals just as good if not better can be had online anyway.

ASDA have said that they won't be participating this year.

It must be something to do with health and safety perhaps here:

just reminds me of the South Park "console wars" episode, if you haven't seen it, it's a must on why Black Friday is an unwelcome tradition.

Black Friday is good for one thing and one thing only. Watching these morons trample each other.

Without it my social feed will be full of teenagers punching old ladies, an utterly embarrassing GOP debate, poppy haters, corruption in sport, clip-on man buns, trophy hunting of elephants and lions, and Jamie f*ing Vardy.

Where's the fun? Selfish Asda is taking all the fun out of it.

Trying to be a smart-arse and looking for an image that linked Black Friday with the sale of BWFC I did a search for "queue outside Bolton Wanderers" - one of the pages it threw up was this one:

http://www.theguardian.com/football/gallery/2015/jan/02/memory-lane-fa-cup-third-round-in-pictures

Does anybody remember the game in 1974 when the Lord's Day Observers demonstrated outside Burnden Park as featured in picture 18?

Slightly before my time that but I have heard my Dad talk about my Gran (his mother in law) giving my Grandpa shit for going to that game with him.

"What he does is up to him, Kenneth, but you should know better!"

I don't think she liked my Dad much - bad influence obviously..... Very Happy

Yes, I was there that day.

It was the first ever arranged Sunday match.

Never had professional football been played on a Sunday before.

As it turned out some other clubs later arranged to play on the same Sunday but with earlier kick off times just so they would go down in history.

Why we played on a Sunday was all down to the country's politics at the time when the miners had gone on strike to break the Heath government and plunged the country into an energy crisis and the three day week.

Some years later Thatcher broke the miners and the unions powers because of bringing down the Heath Government.

The game was a cracker.

At the time Stoke was in the top league and we were in the division below - so they were nailed on favourites to win however club legend John Byrom had other ideas and scored a hat-trick to put us 3-0 up, then Stoke stormed back to make us cling on in the end as 3-2 winners.

There was just shy of 40,000 in the ground that day.

There were quite a few God bothers there that day telling us to keep the Sabbath holy but nobody gave a toss about them.

Another thing I remember was that the clubs could not charge people to watch the game - some sort of law about Sunday trading at the time.  The way they got around this however was that it was free to watch the game but you could only get into the ground if you had a match programme and the cost of the programme that day was surprise, surprise the exact amount a normal game entry price was.

Happy days, so long ago now.

Not jealousy, just curiosity.

If I lived with someone I wouldn't let them spend all night on the computer talking to strangers on a forum.

Another goddamn americanism. Why are retailers celebrating Thanksgiving?

Could it be to make money?

I know we're little more than an American colony these days but where will it stop? 

Will they have us celebrating "Freedom from British Rule" Day?
