  1. 1-1 draw, Marcus Gayle for them and Jon Newsome for us. PLEAT OUT
  2. I was there that day 5-0 up by half time and I was still annoyed as all the goals were leppings Lane end
  3. Bad feeling about today, I feel if we do win then it will be smash and grab rather than a convincing performance. Another 1-2. theo for us
  4. Football sold its soul a while ago and realistically for success you have to dine with the devil. What really frustrates me is two clubs I previously had loads of respect for in Man City and Newcastle will now be or have been for a while our favourite clubs to hate. Man City had flair players and great crowds in a proper old school stadium regardless of how well they were doing. Think average attendances of around 28k in div 3, people in the boardroom with club connections and now look at them. I have an old school mentality where I try to follow English clubs in Europe but Man City V Chelsea champs league final this year was just utterly depressing regardless of what actually transpired on the pitch. So in conclusion, if north Korea owned us and guaranteed back to back promotions then sign me up!!!
  5. Not long before Mansfield are removing goal pie from all around their collective ugly faces
  6. That's actually a decent shout, been a success in 3 consecutive jobs now (i think) would he drop to league 1 though? My guess is he's waiting for a champ job to come up.
  7. Yeah, its cringeworthy when people at the beginning said 'oh he speaks really well' no he didn't, he speaks like an old school centre back with limited ideas. 10 more games to prove himself for me.
  8. He says after 7 games of a 46 game season where we are 2 points off the play offs.
  9. Its 3 bad results in a row so can understand people getting frustrated especially given our lack of goals which is probably the most worrying element of our game. However, we are 7 games in, like I said with monk I think a relatively new manager needs around 20 games after a full pre season before a proper judgement is made. If we are still mid table around then its time for moore to go. It does have a whiff of 2004-05 about it, we may even have an almost identical record at this stage.
  10. High quality final. Emma needs to take advantage of Fernandez dodgy serve
  11. Great work Lord S, front 3 selection will be important today. Going for a 2-1 win Gregory and Adeniran. Even if we lose i am still confident of a good season. Not said that in a while
  12. Last Barry to be any good? Not.enough Barry's in the world in my opinion. Minus points for mentioning Gareth Barry or the chuckle Brothers
  13. Very bold statement to say we've not had a striker of his quality in years.
  14. This is highly likely to end in failure to be honest. I suspect he will play a bit part, not really make an impact other than 1 or 2 goals and drift off into oblivion. If it did work out and he fires us to promotion then DM is a genius. I don't think its too much of a risk but he's probably a busted flush. Hope im wrong
  15. Was that the brilliant Harry kewell goal? I think we went 1-0 after 60 seconds with some abysmal defending.
  16. Fair point, you could argue France, Brazil, Argentina etc were all better in that era than now
  17. Wow, we get to a semi final and final in the space of 3 years and still people come out with this. Has there been a men in black style device to wipe the memories of the last 50 years of international tournament football? We've been dog sh*t for years with much better teams and people still can't enjoy a run to the final with a young, tactically aware and well bonded team.
  18. Last match I went to. Maddison got injured after about 5 mins and the Norwich just didn't fancy tackling, marking, passing or heading that day. Almost like having 11 Jay Bothroyds
  19. Its really unlikely that we will concede ever again in any of our lifetimes, beyond that who knows. Hope that helps, I've gone a bit cautious on my prediction
  20. Exactly the same start as 2010/11 where we finished 15th in league 1
  21. Yep, actually gives me chance to watch it now. Gutted about lockdown though. We had it good for a while
