    The ref playing no stoppage time

    The aspect not yet discussed is that it was a wrong and needless decision safety wise. There was no sign at all of a pitch invasion, no gathering of fans towards the front. It was a terrible judgement from the referee. There can be different kinds of pitch invasions, but had it come, this would have been a purely celebratory. No rivalry or bad feeling between the fans. No injury or bad outcome has ever come from that.

    Shall we bother playing the second half against Norwich next week? There's nothing riding on it.
  3. To put it in context, it didn't matter too much, probably favoured us to knock 4/5 minutes off the clock, and isn't really worth complaining about. But...... Despite that context, I really hate the decision. There was no real sign of a pitch invasion looming, and none came at all. Even if it doesn't matter too much, you just cannot change the rules and knock time off the game. It's a shame, as it gives a bit of a false memory, like it was just an exhibition game that no one really cared about enough to want to actually play the proper length of the game. And that's not the case, Wednesday did well. Do we know any more info? Presumbaly this was pre-planned from the ref, and therefore meant that we had to agree to it? If so, too nice and too meek Wednesday.
  4. We've conquered all of Yorkshire, And we're never going to stop, From rovrum up to Leeds, We've beat the f***ng lot, David Hirst, Roland nilsson And Atdte Nuhiu, He never used to score, Now he always gets two ALLEZ ALLEZ ALLEZ, ALLEZ, ALLEZ, ALLEZ
  5. Where are we drinking?
  6. This one is a lot more debatable I know, but I even would play Wildsmith, and promise Dawson in exchange the same number of games if/when we are mathematically safe.
  7. We are looking at a season that is going to go into our history as very forgettable. There is one remaining way we could make it memorable, especially for the fans Tonight's win has given us the licence. If it means sacrificing preparations for the Milwall game to a small extent, screw it, lets do it. Nobody is going to be arrogant and say 'we're definitely not going down,' but the picture is looking very good. Nine points is a very big cushion at the bottom. The old manager returning makes it more spicy, but it's exciting enough without that. Win on Saturday,.and we are one win from Wembley. If we don't get a ' maybe winnable' one in the draw for the quarters, at least that means we have a great day out away at one of the Manchester clubs, or indeed Wembley, to play Tottenham. Our opposition on Saturday CANNOT afford to take their eye off the league. We can. Let's take advantage.

    5th Round Draw Details

    Agree or disagree- the best draw (give or take the Pigs, maybe) is home to whoever the lowest placed team is. Last 16 and two wins from Wembley, I very strongly agree. Southampton away would be a big disappointment, but for me, Rochdale at home (even away) definitely wouldn't be.
  9. May be a stupid question as I imagine the answer is no, but do we know whether they're serving in the ground on Friday?

    Need two Blades away tickets

    Yeah cheers mate. Out of a joint bank account (my wife has other away s/t), and we had left it empty on the one crucial day. Missed two calls too, on a busy day, so no excuses, but feeling pretty unlucky!

    Need two Blades away tickets

    Cheers mate, will do. Is that how it works, by priority level?
  12. I know it's a long shot, but if people have two (or one) spare, would really appreciate it. We're away season tickets holders, and have had an absolute mare. Had no idea the tickets were on sale, so soon after Brentford, didn't leave enough money in bank account, and missed the first payment we ever have. So gutted to miss the only game to get excited about in a dire season. PM me, I don't know if it's generally done, but given the circumstances, would be willing to pay more than face value.

    FA Cup

    Yes, I really believe we should. There is absolutely no chance we get relegated, and sadly no chance we get promoted. But we won't. It's frustrating that the FA don't help the competition at all. Maybe the fact that the third round is after the 4 games in 10 days Xmas period is unavoidable, as to change the 3rd round date would mess with tradition. But, given their fixture computer takes hundreds of things into account, why not add a simple "no big derby matches after FA cup rounds."
  14. Genuine question, I'm interested to know. I know I said I didn't think it wasnt many singing Carlos out, and others have said it was more, and that's just probably different parts of the stand. But the thing for sure is that it wasn't a big majority today and hasn't been at all yet. If you compare the weight of opinion on here, there is a massive disconnect between the anger that is felt on here and the smaller amount that is heard from the stand at the end of games. And, unlike other clubs (and this may not be a bad thing)- no planes, no flags, no banners, no organised protests. So, genuine question, as I say, why is there this big difference? My best guesses are 1) We are still overall a positive set of fans 2) Carlos has been lucky to get away with circumstance. The overall picture has been very mediocre but there hasn't been any single awful occasion for the depth of feeling to come out. Blades game we were shell shocked, Derby away you can't criticise after ten men have fought that hard, Bolton away (twice) we finished strongly late on, and Hull at home there was an element of shock so soon after our positive turn around.
  15. Feeling far more disillusioned with the whole thing, that I was confronted at the end of the game, after joining in the "We want Carlos out" song. My best guess is that it wasn't many people singing it. A few over all of the stand to make it heard, but probably a small number overall. ( I actually think that more need to make their voice heard on this, but that is a different story). I decided to join in the second the penalty went in, until after the game. Get behind them during the game, get our voice heard only when it is well and truly over. The key thing on the sistuation are two very different arguments about it. The first is "Carlos in or out?" and I would argue my side for a long time. But that isn't the point here. The important thing is that both sides are ALLOWED to give their view. And we are going to look like idiots if we argue and fight between ourselves. If he had wanted to sing "Carlos had a dream" all game, it would be equally wrong of me to shout him down on it in an aggressive way. I don't want to exaggerate the facts, he didn't threaten violence. But he was in my face arguing for long enough and confrontational enough, that if someone had wanted to make a fight out of it, they could easily have done. It would have been easy for it to escalate to the same situation that got our fans in the news at Derby. Westwood took to Twitter, and fans of other teams laughed at us for fighting between ourselves, and they were not wrong. The Carlos IN side has to understand that someone making noise against Carlos does not deserve aggression. There is a time during the game it may be wrong arguably, but that did definitely not happen today. And, even though it may be less relevant at the moment, the Carlos OUT side should understand that people have the right to support him as well. Let's not make morons of ourselves as fans, the players are doing it well enough for us.
