    "City's going up and the scum are going down..."

    Almost as good as Jordan Rhodes leading the crowd at Villa with If you dont jump you're Ipswich Scum. Quality moment.

    How to mark the Ipswich relegation

    I was going to suggest flying a banner over Poorman Road but it would be a wasted gesture with so few there to see it

    Wigan - Sold Out

    Plenty of home tickets available in the section next to away fans. You have to register to buy but appears to be no restriction on signing up.

    Bought Wembley tickets but Adult reverted to 65+!

    You can buy whatever ticket you want against eack ST number. The important thing is to ensure you click on the Update button before proceeding to the pay screen. If you dont update it defaults to the normal ST holders band on the pay screen

    The route to survival

    Assuming 40 points is needed (I really hope for our sake it isn''t) we have little room for error now and will need a distinct improvment in our current level of performance. Here is my analysis of what we need to do. It does look possible but it will require more consistency at home and a couple of away wins.

    Crystal PalaceA1
    Cardiff CityA3
    West Ham (7.45pm)A1
    Aston VillaA3
    Swansea CityA0
    Manchester UnitedA0
    Hull CityH3
    Newcastle UnitedH1
    Manchester CityH0
    Tottenham Hotspur H0
    Stoke CityH3
    West BromH3

    Quiet tomorrow night

    Looking at online sales its going to be the lowest crowd for years. Unless there is a huge uptake of tickets today it will be below 10,000. Can''t understand the apathy with the entertaining free flowing attacking football we are playing.  Obviously very few people think its worth £10.

    Holiday Inn for sale

    You have to remember this corner is the vehicle access to pitchside for emergency vehicles which would mean very few seats being fitted in at the lower level.  It would be great to see a corner infill but it just isn''t going to happen.

    Holiday Inn for sale

    The money we got from the hotel deal effectively kept us from going into adminisration at the time. If that had happened do you think we would be in the position we are now. The club have maintained that seats in corners are not cost effective or the best value for additional capacity.

    I think we can forget any idea of stadium expansion as there is there is not the demand for the extra seats. When first promoted the club talked about expansion afyer a couple of seasons in this league. Its not even on the clubs radar any more. Away followings are declining quite seriously which frees up enough seats to satisfy home support for most games. Take away the obvious top 5 or 6 games and seats were readily availble up to match day.

    Ipswich 'friendly'?

    Just shows how big the gap between the two clubs now is. Our friends south of the border are getting really excited at the prospect of playing what will likely be a city reserve squad. I would let them get a real feel of  what its like in the big league, charge them £50 a ticket. Can''t see a lot of interest from city fans for the game so high prices won''t bother us.

    Benteke off

    If he had stayed on the pitch I''m fairly sure they would have won the game. They are less likely to win at Wigan now but it keeps Villa well and truly in the mix for relegation

    A hard fougt 90 minutes followed by a mauling in extra time as they run out of steam and pick up a few injuries and a red card or two

    Maggie: What would be an apt tribute?

    Maybe we should restrict this discussion to people who are old enough to have lived through the years leading up to Thatcher and actually saw the huge benefits she brought to us all. Perhaps some of the infantile comments being made on here would not be made if the younger ones amongst us were around then when the miners and other public utilities held us to ransom and we had to make do with only having electicity on every other day. Imagine that - no xbox or Playstation on Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Sunday. No heat  or hot food either.

    The miners were blind in their faith to Scargill who led them into a battle with the government they were never going to win. The mines were losing millions which the UK taxpayers were subsidising.

    How many of the people on here spouting bile now own therir own home?  Something else brought to many by Thatcher. And if we want to keep this thred to football how many of you want to go back to watching football like we had to before she made football get itself in order. Its easy to moan about id cards (which never happened) but she was behind the drive to rid the game of hooliganism and introduction of familly friendly stadia.

    And to answer the OP question - football should do nothing to recognise her achievments. Football can pay its respect the same as everyone else who wishes to when she gets full honours at her funeral.

    The nasty side of Holt

    Putting all the emotion aside around Grant Holt there are a few points raised by many on here which can not really be disputed.

    He should have been given two red cards in recent games when coming on as substitute.

    He certainly appears to have put on weight since last season which probably explains his apparent slowing in pace.

    He has lost his sharpness in front of goal.

    Open to question is his commitment to the club which has rewarded him foolishly (in hindsight) with a long contract. If you want a conspiracy you could think he is trying to work himself a transfer up north having moved his familly "home" and now showing more effort into getting himself sent off than scoring goals.

    Its a shame to see a club legend end like this but this summer we need to unload him but cant think there will be many takers with the contract he is on. £6 million West Ham - a year too late I''m afraid.
