Tonight's dilemna.

Recommended Posts

With 1p5wich playing Brighton tonight a preferred result is difficult to call.

Whilst never wanting the History Boys to do well Brighton are already beginning to look a serious threat to our own chances of success this season.

Hughton has done a good job there (and playing TWO up front) and apparently they are just getting into top gear.

A bore draw would do fine, perhaps 0-0 to maintain the binmen''s unimpressive scoring record, but if I had to chose between the two I would prefer a home win as suiting us a better even though it is still early days.

Only really concerned with our result first, what ever the outcome at Poorman Road I will be happy, Brighton Win means scum have lost, Ipswich win means Brighton a rival for promotion have dropped 3 points and a draw and neither are making progress. Season wont be won or lost on tonight / tomorrows results.

"Ipswich to lose every single game of the season please."

Ah! But would you wish they when towards the end of the season when they play the Toon if us and Newcastle were neck and neck for promotion and 1p5wich were safely hovering above the relegation zone with crowds of no more than 12, 000.

All of which is a likely scenario the way things are panning out.

I''d qualify that - to lose every single game except against those who are our rivals for the top of the table. Brighton are one of those. Ipswich win please.  [Y]  Ugh. That was hard to write.

If Ipswich were playing a "world genocide 11" with pol pot in goal and a defence made up of aliens from the movie "Independence Day" I''d support them over Ipswich.

For me, while I hate the scummers, I want the best result for our team.  And that''s a draw IMO.  The scummers with a win get very close to the play off places, a win for Brighton puts them level on points with us, a draw means they both drop points.

Actually it''s a little known fact that Pol Pot (real name Saloth Sar) studied in Paris in the 1950s and had a try-out in goal for PSG but was rejected due to "attitude problems".  No mention in the report I read of whether there was an issue with his body language.

Excellent.


I guess the thing about Hughton is that if you learn from your mistakes, he should be a lot better as a manager now than he was before his time at City.

I think I''ll stick with TC''s excellent summing up rather than go with the notion that Hughtons years of experience mean he''s finally caught up with our wisdom....

£104 Morty?

How does that add up?

The only thing I can imagine is the damage waiver being set quite high on the rental portable toilets.

Hughton at Brighton is far more representative of his managerial career as a whole than Hughton at Norwich was, as anybody familiar with his spells as manager of Newcastle and Birmingham will know. That said, I''m sure he did learn a lot from his time with us, waiting for a really good opportunity to present itself at a progressive and ambitiously-run club.

If in doubt in this division draws all round please. Hard to know yet who will emerge as our serious rivals but I think Brighton and Newcastle are certainly two. Reading slipping under the radar at present as well.

So I don''t get this logic of wanting 1p5wich to beat our perceived rivals. Somebody has to finish in the top six and if it''s not Brighton it''ll be somebody else. Therefore what posters are really saying that as soon as Club looks a threat or likely to finish top 6 then they want 1p5wich to beat them. But then wouldn''t that increase the chances of 1p5wich being in the top 6 and a threat?I know what I''d rather have and it begins with 1p5wich nil

How can any self respecting Norwich fan EVER want the binners to win?No way, no how, not in a million years. No, no, no, not ever, NEVER!C''mon Brighton! [8o|]

C''mon you binners !With a bit of luck a deadly quiet, half empty stadium should unerve Brighton. If not the rows of gormless pitchfork wavers should spook them.Why a binner win ? Well, it will prolong Mad Mick''s tenure at Poorman Road. It will also over excite the not too bright of suffolk into think they might get promoted, so the inevitable let down will be all the more enjoyable.Perhaps they will fly a plane over the ground or hang a banner off a ''motorway'' bridge in celebration....... if they win.

ps I shall be sat in my local tonight with a piece of straw in my mouth eyeing up the charity collection tin, Not sure if it will help but it will make me think I am there in spirit, if not being.
