  1. Ah fair enough, makes sense now - thanks all! He could probably do with a game off to be fair!!
  2. Forgive me if this has already been posted/answered, I did search but found nothing... Timm Klose got a straight red, no? If so, then why has he only got a one-match suspension, as reported? Shouldn't this be three? Have I missed something in the rules?
  3. LDC, in the words of Daniel Farke "Ignore the noise". Love the optimism, though like myself perhaps we're too often consumed by blind optimism through the trials and tribulations that is football. That said, I predict us to reach 33 points (history saying that is not enough) going into our final game. With Man City having already nailed down second spot, and having to play the FA Cup final and Champions League final in the following two weeks post-season, perhaps playing a fringe team and opening up a stronger chance for the win - taking us to 36 points and scraping survival by the barest of margins! Furthermore, in the "mini-league" we have 4 home games and 1 away game left. Plus home games against Everton and Southampton to come. Start taking points from those around us and we're in with a shout. It can't be underestimated just how important this weekend is. WE ARE STAYING UP!!! (my word I hope this ages well...)
  4. I know it's a long shot, but anyone travelling up today got a spare ticket?
  5. I parked on Beresford Street last time, looks like closest on-street parking and about a 5-10min amble over the bridge and around to the away end :)
  6. True, I mean we are already going above our stations remembering the Buendia lines - 2 songs with non-repetitive lyrics will definitely be too hard for most football fans to cope with!
  7. I liked the "Rhythm is a dancer, Stipermann's the answer" one. Why not just use that?
  8. Well, a bit of avoidance as he knew he was on for a booking, and obviously to make Aarons look worse. Regardless, even if Rudd got straight up to his feet Aarons should've gone...
  9. Rhino1, I think you need to get a grip. A frustrated Rudd conceding his clean sheet in the 93rd minute punched the ball into the stand and rightfully got booked for that. In response Aarons full force pushed him in the chest and probably should've seen red for it. Okay Rudd laid on the floor for a couple minutes (more likely trying to avoid the ref's attention), again any player would do the same. And yes he also took his time over goal kicks etc throughout the game - something Krul also does very well when we are winning. After the final whistle, Rudd held up his hands to the away support and clapped them.
  10. I did crossbar challenge at the Leicester 4-3 game so remember that one well! Other particularly memorable "ordinary" games - going to stick with away games as they tend to incite the passion that little bit more... 4-3 L at St. Mary's 2005 2-1 W and then 3-3 in North London 2012 2-1 W Ewood Park 2015 4-3 L St. James' Park 2017 And one home game that may be seen as controversial is the 1-6 L to Man City in 2012, I just remember Man City being on a completely different level, and remembering thinking we didn't actually play that badly! An utter master class.
  11. Must admit, after watching the Leeds game and the way the players seemed to completely abort and lose faith in the game plan after the first goal, I was very much teetering towards "if he goes I won't be unhappy". I will also admit that at the beginning of last season I predicted it wouldn't be until after Christmas this season until we see Farke's style coming off! Mainly due it still took Pep well over a year to get it right at Man City with the talent at his disposal! Though the reason for my feelings after the Leeds game were because I felt as though we were going backwards... Here's a question, has there ever been a time when ourselves and Ipswich have been at polar ends of the table simultaneously?! Loving it!
