    I did my PhD at UEA from 1974-1977 and always enjoyed it there as the campus even that long ago was a good one. I occasionally walk around it on my rare visits to the Fine City. The university has a good reputation so certainly worth consideration by your daughter.

    The difference between the two teams today

    A significant factor in our results, besides the injury crisis, is that many of our players have not shown the level of performances they did last season. This is due to the higher standard of football demanded in the PL. Teams have also sussed out that pressing us high up the pitch induces lots of misplaced passes that they can capitalise on.

    I have just seen the goals. We cannot use injuries as an excuse for defending that would embarrass Sunday park footballers. Villa must have thought all their birthdays had arrived at once.

    The self-sustaining policy being pursued is a sensible one for any club with owners who don’t have the financial clout to ‘buy’ success. Today was a hugely disappointing result but look at the match day squad - only Byram on the bench had any Premier League experience before this season. Having untried youngsters on the bench reflects the awful injury problems DF faces. We will probably be relegated this season, so be it. We have been here before and probably will be again.

    When we are 4 down surely substitutions should be made to try and change things. When you look at the next 6 fixtures I can only see us getting points against Watford, We desperately need some change in fortune on the injury front.

    How long will it take Mings to kick Teemu off the pitch?

    Historic Top Division Table

    This season we match Ipswich with 26 top flight seasons. Does this table include this season? Also the scum had more seasons in Division One when there were more than 20 teams and this would help explain the difference in the number of games played.

    If we were playing the binners on Sat.....

    Just wait when the scum play the ‘better’ teams in L1.
  9. If we had been told when the fixture list was published that we would beat Newcastle, draw with West Ham, Burnley and Palace but lose to Liverpool, Chelsea and Man City most of us would have taken the 6 points. We are just where it is reasonable to expect us to be despite all the injuries. Move along please, there’s nothing to see here.

    Come on Leicester

    Do you wish we were Leicester?

    Come on Leicester

    Leicester look a very useful team.
  12. As I posted last week we will gain few points away from home. A record of P4 W0 D0 L4 F1 A 10 supports this view. It is out home games that will decide our fate and beating Villa next week will be a good way to start. We need to stay in touch with the other teams around us so that we can bolster areas in the team in January. Our job as fans is to keep faith with the players and management as they adjust to the greater demands of the PL.

    Arsenal Vs Villa

    How is one third of a season 12 games when applied to the championship? One third would be 15 games. 12 games is approx. one quarter of a championship season hence 9 games equivalent for the PL.

    Arsenal Vs Villa

    I would suggest that it be the 9 game rule for the Premier League.
