  1. .... There's no such thing as a friendly against 1p5wich.
  2. I don't understand the first bit and is Pukki's record since the formation of the Premier League? I've been a supporter since the early seventies and, on average, we've been a top end Championship/bottom end Premiership side..... I don't see that changing anytime soon.
  3. Unfortunately, you missed our Promotion in '86. After winning the League Cup we collapsed to relegation, the following Season we were far too good and with Watson and Bruce at the back and Drinkell up front we went straight back up.
  4. Not sure about that....... The Doc was always at least 2 metres away from the player he was supposed to be marking. I wish people would stop with the 'Ben in midfield' line. It ain't gonna happen.
  5. You're new here, not the best way to make friends.....
  6. Reports, south of the border are that the paupers are investing in cleaning the roof of the Sir Bobby Robson Stand. Some would say "not a moment too soon" however it should be pointed out that the tree is on the roof of the Churchmans and will remain for the foreseeable...... Still, with promotion looking unlikely, I'm sure a clean roof will dazzle the already delusional to turn up in ever increasing numbers when we do finally get back to football.
  7. What were 1p5wich called before some sports hack called them the Tractor Boys?
  8. So many examples that contradict that statement, from Van Wolf to Maddison, that the truth is more the opposite.
  9. I still have'nt forgiven him for missing 'that' penalty........ Probably never will.
  10. ...... and the 'boy Krul' is a liability, we've no chance, give McGovern the shirt. I am not Big Vince........
  11. There seems to be no fear on TWTD, they're busy re-living the glory days, while there's no football. Truth is they're always busy re-living the glory days, proving there's been no football in Suffolk for a very long time.
  12. I know the money would come in handy but I hope he doesn't go there.
  13. 4000 days lol........ Those were the days!
  14. Comedy statement of the year.....
  15. ..... but if one of them now identifies as a girl you could end up in court.
  16. Good points, well made and thanks for the courteous response. If 'there is no cash reserves to support any speculative spending' why are you advocating spending 20-30 million, that we haven't got on players who may, or may not make a difference? I've not heard that the 'current owners are unwilling to relinquish power' I'm sure that if you were to stump up enough money they would consider it.
  17. Haven't been over there yet but their blogger Alex posted up 'broken seats and absolute limbs' .... it's Burton ffs, BURTON! They're taking great pleasure out of our struggles this season, while they make hard work out of Accrington, Fleetwood and Lincoln.
  18. It ain't over till it's over... anyone who has given up at this stage needs to have a word with themselves.
  19. By your 'ilk' you mean that you think putting the finances of the Club at risk, like we did the last time we were in the Premiership, when we bought Naismith, is a good idea. By 'thought provoking' you mean dragging up something that has been discussed a thousand times before, usually after we've lost a game, though rarely to the best Club side in the World. If you changed the word 'apathy' to 'reality' you may be closer to the truth, as it's undeniable that we will never compete with Liverpool or Chelsea financially. Sorry for the long post but you asked for more than a 'one sentence pun' the others were probably wise not to rise to your bait, as I'm sure that's what you're looking for but as I'm not on here that often nowadays I'll play the game and maybe come back in a week or so for your response.
  20. I'd guess that some of those 'wise old owls' are fortunate enough to have a season ticket, in which case they don't need expansion. Given that us old uns don't have long left, it's understandable that we'd rather see the money spent on the squad, providing entertaining, competitive football. I'm old, but I want investment in the Stadium, a new City stand to take us up to 32,000 initially, with a view to increase the Snakepit and the other corner long term.
  21. From what I've seen, the 3rd Division is very poor this season. Some of their fans are freely admitting that if they were to go up, they'd likely go straight back down again. Seconded
  22. Haven't really followed Leeds since their demise at the end of last season and while it's funny watching their fans' torment, I don't have any real animosity toward them. That said, if they don't go up this season, Bielsa will be gone.
  23. ...... not having this, 1p5wich have a great history that we can only dream of. Ask any of them, they can quote, chapter and verse, every player that played in the 70s. .....and with a tree growing on the roof of the stand, they're ahead of us on environmental issues. What's not to like?
  24. Lambert is doing a fine job, long may it last.
