  1. Pleased it's off, hopefully all will get better and fit for the 26th
  2. It is quite shocking how much of a hoof ball team they (ipswich) are. Absolute dog turd of a team if this is their standard.
  3. Yes we would. And yes, it was a penalty. However, it still doesn't take away that it was a clever bit of play acting by Ronaldo which ensured it was one. Without the acting I suspect he wouldn't have even know Aarons was there
  4. Apart from the small matter that he didn't. Live at the game it looked a clear dive, ho hum........... Or in other words. Cheating fu(4ing diver
  5. Yes they do and I think most clubs also do so? It's also interesting at the start of the season to how many seats are always empty.
  6. They know exactly what they are doing when they protest to the ref and I love it. It's gamesmanship, it upsets their player, keeps the ref on his toes and we need every advantage we can get. In truth, I (from my loft position in the River end) find it quite funny and when the refs do eventually fall for it, it makes me titter
  7. It was announced as 27,066 and that looked about right from my viewpoint. A few empty seats in the city stand but not many Quite surprised how late people got into the ground as well
  8. Well said and this mirrors my situation, sons viewpoint and animal spirit exactly.
  9. Ha, ha, bearing in mind that's the family section. Bit rough in there
  10. To be frank, the team performance considering their current situation (if you're aware of it) was excellant. But yes we need to put chances away. Toast? Not even warm yet
  11. Yes saw that, it was near me about 7/8 rows from the front. Thought it was only the one thrown out from my view point and the steward was quick and dealt with it well I thought. It certainly upset a few around us
  12. Great picture. Never seen this before, and very steep from this view point
  13. Mission agreed. Stone the windows at 2300hrs then Fireworks every hour from midnight to 8am. May just help us tomorrow. Remember, you are doing it for the good of humanity and should feel proud. Let us know how you get on
  14. Fingers crossed he does not go there. Good man in my opinion and he would deserve better than that pile of delusional has beens.
  15. Yes. It's quite ironic, that a small handful of halfwits decide to abuse one of their players after another abject performance, yet their entire support allows 2 decades plus of absolute decline and rot and subsequently fail to do anything meaningful about it. Other than a smoke flare at the training ground and a poster here or there, there have been an almost zombie like acceptance of utter tripe served up down there without any resistance. Just for that complete lack of organised pressure on the board and united expression of disaffection alone over many years they deserve to rot. Christ, even Mick McCarthy told them all to Fu(k 0ff on TV (embarrassingly for them at Carrow Road). Apathetic as usual and yet wholly predictable that a few will get drunk and embarrass themselves.
  16. Sounds like he is over egging it a bit. From the clip I saw a few of them were shouting from the stands at two of their players and one fan came over from the side and pushed one of them before being removed by stewards. To be fair they are usually such a inert bunch that I'm quite surprised they finally let the team know what they thought (please note I do not condone the behaviour of the moron who pushed their player).
  17. During the game yesterday, I was perplexed that the chanting on a number of occasions from the spurs support was very loud near us yet hardly any appeared to be taking part. That and when they did chant it seemed to always get to the same level of noise for the same length of time, before finishing at the same time. The noise was as if the whole ground was taking part when in reality that would not be the case. Between these 'enhanced' moments you could often hear a few spurs fans away to our left in the same area each time trying to start a chant, but it was much quieter By the end of the match I was absolutely convinced they were piping in fake noise. Looking on t'internet this evening I see a number of reports that they are probably doing this. Pretty diabolical if that is the case Did anyone else have the same suspicions regarding this?
  18. Plenty of half and half scarves on show in the away end yesterday
  19. Looked good for his cameo appearance. Thought he would be a bit ring rusty but pleasantly surprised with his effort.
  20. I'm not so sure. We need a finisher. Not an athlete, not someone quick who can run on to a through ball, not a statisticians dream, just a finisher for the final ball. Pure and simple, someone who can go 'cold' in the box and finish the chances we create, as we certainly do create. Not necessarily easy to obtain I know but surely we can do better with our signings in this area?
  21. Absolutely 100% nailed on correct. Gibson was one of a few not playing well, but to sign post him is disingenuous at best. My impression at the match was that we looked 'intimidated'
  22. Just back from the game. Invest in a decent striker/finisher from a league or two below and we could do well as there are chances being made. Carry on as we are and boy are we in for a very long journey. Other than Pukki (who missed a chance today) I'm not sure what we have Disappointing
