  1. Gillingham away in FA Cup 3rd round in early 00's for me. It was a midweek evening match in early January, IIRC the match should have been played the previous Saturday but was postponed due to a frozen pitch. Sat on their scaffolding uncovered temporary away stand (it's still there) was so cold I had to walk about to regain body heat and ward off hypothermia.
  2. Great OMDT as ever M'Lud. I was feeling optimistic about this match, then I realised Sam bl**dy Vokes plays for them, don't know what it is about him, but I really, really dislike him. So fearing the worst but hoping for win, oh and an injury (nothing too serious - a groin strain would be good) for Sam Vokes.
  3. So, our 3-0 win over Sunderland finally ended our 106 league game run of failing to score 2 goals (excluding penalties) in consecutive games. Have we finally turned a corner or was the Sunderland result merely papering over the cracks?
  4. Great OMDT as ever M'Lud. Haven't got a clue what'll happen today, but out of hope I'll go 1-0 Wednesday win - Paterson from a Bannan through ball - would give me an excuse to listen to Pato Banton's Baby Come Back...
  5. Great OMDT as ever M'Lud. Given that our kit Man has obviously misplaced everyone's 'scoring' boots, I can only see an ugly, nervy 1-0 Wednesday win - probably a misplaced Gregory shot in off Berahino's @rse...
  6. Great OMDT as ever M'Lud. Given our impotence up front, I'll have to go for a floppy 1-0 Wednesday win - Orinoco from a Tomsk assist.
  7. This got me thinking - as a white middle aged man who are my black role models? So had a think and came up with the following: Sport - Sir Vivian Richards Music - Bob Marley Politics - Nelson Mandela Culture - Benjamin Zephaniah TV - Derek Griffiths - first non-caucasian I ever saw
  8. 1- 0 Wednesday win - more in hope than expectation
  9. Great OMDT as ever M'Lud. Got a bad feeling about today - can't see us keeping a clean sheet and we don't score enough. As ever hope I'm wrong and our sublime midfield laying on slick passes and through balls to our rampant, marauding forwards for a Wednesday goalfest - just can’t see it.
  10. Can't see it myself, we don't score enough of those goal thingies that other teams rave about.
  11. Over the last couple of months things seem to have stabilised at ~30,000 new cases a day and ~750 deaths a week. I find it incredibly sad that ~7,500 people walking about today won't see Christmas because they've died of covid. Especially so because the solution - vaccination has been available for 9 months (for me the case for vaccination has been made). I used to get really frustrated with people who won't take the vaccination, maybe it's my fault, but I just don't understand why you wouldn't take it. Now I just get depressed at the inevitably of those 7,500 needless (in my view) deaths by Christmas.
  12. Partly to make the stat and partly because they're not from open play - pens don't hide the fact that over the last 100 league games we've been toothless up front, scoring just 103 goals including pens. We just don't score enough to be successful, let alone promoted out of any league and it's been that way for at least 2 seasons.
  13. Great OMDT as ever M'Lud. Nearly at the stage of past caring if we win or lose (obvs still hope we win), just want to see us score some goals, plural not singular, wouldn't mind a 4-3 loss, at least we'd have scored 3.
