    Ipswich first to L2?

    I did mean L1. L2 will be the following season I forgot about Forest. Still puts them in pretty exclusive company!
  2. I'm not sure and I have looked without finding any other teams in the same position, but... Will Ipswich be the first ever English team to have won in a European trophy who have been relegated to the 3rd tier or English football?

    Don't underestimate reading

    Most of the Reading fans I’ve talked to down here (Wokingham) are expecting to get a spanking. None expect a point. They will be happy if they finish it’s only a 2 goal margin. And that was before even admitting that I am a canaries fan.

    McLaren to Ipswich when Lambert leaves?

    I know this is nothing to do with the main subject but does it matter what the minutes silence is for? It is a chance to have silence so that you can contemplate things for a moment before you forget it all and get on with enjoying the game. Nobody can tell you what you can think about. If you want to think about the death of the wife of another clubs owner you can. If you want to think about the victims in NZ go ahead, you can mourne for all the dead in all the wars around the world if you want to see the bigger picture, if it’s Brexit then you need a life but it’s still your choice. You could even just think about how uncomfortable your shoes are if you like! Personally I prefer applause to silence but that another subject.

    Both Michael Benjamin and Jack Burton do make some valid points though... Michael Benjamin: "From day one we had belief. They have had hope". One thing you can say for Leeds supporters is that they have the belief that Leeds are one of the biggest teams in the country and that they should be winning everything. Norwich supporters tend to be more realistic about our chances. We did indeed start the season with hope and for most, with no expectations. Last season didn't really give us much grounds for optimism. Only the most blinkered of Leeds fans can truly say though that Leeds have been better, more effective and more entertaining that Norwich this season though. Jack Burton: If Norwich win the league and Leeds go up in 2nd, the news will all be about Leeds being back in the big time. Norwich will be mentioned as the team who also went up with Leeds. All the publicity (and pressure) will be on Leeds to succeed whereas for Norwich we will likely be one of the favourites for relegation as that's the usual expectation for any promoted team, especially one who freely admits we have little money. Other than that, they are clearly talking rubbish and clearly only watch Leeds and block out the games where they are poor (particularly the game where they were completely destroyed by Norwich - the team above them in the league).
  7. Did he not con the ref by claiming it was an accident?

    Ipswich banner

    At least on that banner they had the decency to do away with the pointless and embarrassing stars over the club badge.

    Spygate and the fall of Leeds United

    Have you never watched professional football? Players play the ball through the legs of an opponent all the time! Just because it's hard for us amateur (at best) players to think of doing that in a game, for a professional who does nothing but play/train/watch football, it's second nature! Just watch someone like Buendia running with the ball past defenders, some times he will play it around them, sometimes it's through them i.e. between their legs or even under them as they run/jump.

    West Indies isn't a nation so doesn't have a "national anthem". They do however have "Rally Round the West Indies" which the cricket team uses as their anthem.

    Leeds and potential legal action

    Leeds were caught spying on Derby's training session. They admitted that they had all teams watched prior to a game, including their next opponents, Stoke. As Stoke knew that their tactics had been studied, they changed them before the game. Stoke beat Leeds. Is that a coincidence? Would they have won regardless? Would Leeds have won if they had known the tactics Stoke were going to play? Did Stoke actually end up getting the advantage from knowing that Leeds had watched their training so had a good idea of how they would set up to counter it? Who knows. Probably.

    Nice view of the ground today.

    I used to work at Laurence Scott, which I think was pretty much directly under where that photo was taken from. Is it still there? I've been down in Berkshire for the last 25 years so a bit out of touch.

    Serena Williams

    If we turn it around... if the umpire was female, do you think Williams would have ranted at her the same way? Do you think she would have accused her of sexism? Maybe there was some sexism involved but maybe it wasn''t coming from the umpire.

    Grabban's brand new ferrari

    Being charged for taking the car without permission doesn''t mean much at all. Lewis would have had to say he took it without permission, otherwise he would have been charged the same as the idiot "driving" it.
  15. I would have bet on Stoke beating Chelsea. Stoke are a good team on a decent run whereas Chelsea are falling apart. And Sheff W team beating Arsenal reserves isn''t that much of a shock either.
