  1. Past hour
  2. I have barely slept for the last 3 nights. I'm a bag of nerves and going to bed last night was an exercise in futility. If I'm sat next to a yappy or crying kid when I fly out of Orlando on Thursday the parents need to either order me a bottle of Jack Daniels or call protective services because I'm not going to be in the mood. And don't get me started on the flight home. I'll be either sweetness and light ordering champagne for all, or in a 'murder all things' mindset.
  3. Exactly this!! And you know what, none of my mates can get their head round my perspective when I talk like this. I've got really close friends who support Sheffield United and Villa and they can't understand it, just by what is at stake. The play off second leg was my play off final, I'm just delighted to experience the actual final with this team. The weekend is going to special, whatever the result and if we don't succeed, you know what next season I will be more optimistic than ever. The only downside, it's gonna be a long ol' summer whichever league we start the 19/20 season in!

    No that shouldn’t be happening and not sure why it would. Will look into it now
  5. He has a fantastic connection with the fans her at Derby, and has done all season, and it is at a level he won't see at Chelsea. He has also got a terrific bond with the players as well - watch the after match videos, the dressing room videos and the after hours, closed door affair at the Kings Head. There is something special going on here which should hold him here for at least a couple of years.
  6. Driving Grimsby to Peterborough and train in from there. 2 adults and 2 kids £45 all in. Bargain that.
  7. I've used Stanmore a few times for normal matches (Charlton, Milwall - assuming Millwall can be classed as normal) and it was fine. But last time I went past the station the car park had been deolished, so there may well be parking shortages there. You could go M40, M25, M4 into Hillingdon station and go from there.
  8. My mate at work is a villa season ticket holder he says stanmore is where many of the villa fans parked last year.He said it was fine then but they were playing a London club and they intend parking there the same again this time.
  9. I’m in a lot of pain. Hopefully it’s natural and I will adjust, but today one of my closest friends died, aged 39. I’ve known him for 30 years. He’s one of a very small number of people that I trust unconditionally. Death happens all the time, I know this, but my mate Neil was put through the ultimate cruelty of pain and illness. He had bad diabetes, then sepsis, survived those for a while whilst having to live on crutches awaiting a hip operation that never came cos his organs were so damaged and his blood too tainted. In the end his heart stopped, his brain died and this afternoon his body shut down and he faded away within ten minutes of the ventilator being switched off, me and several others lost a massive part of our lives 🥺 Rest in Peace: Neil Anthony Ward 07/05/1980 - 21/05/2019 x
  10. I think this time it almost feels like it's come out of nowhere as a bonus, i'd resigned myself to it was an ok season with a couple of good cup runs, then, OK we made top six, it's been unarguably a good season but i don't think the team's good enough to go up, so see what happens, to oh well, we've not laid a glove on leeds and it's 2 nil now......form that and wondering about the cricket, to oh holy fornication we might do this. There's hope, but not pressure, confidence without undue expectation. I can only speak for myself, but I feel free to enjoy Monday and even if we don't make it, the exultation of Leeds second leg will long be remembered.
  11. I've just watched the match again on Rams TV replay - what a stupendous match - and ended up thinking exactly the same!
  12. I think the situation with the transfer embargo and the fact Chelsea may have to look at youth makes this a convenient story, given Frank and Jody know the young players out on loan (two of them are here!). However, assuming the transfer embargo all gets fixed, surely if someone like Allegri is available Chelsea would go for him? They’d probably go for him embargo or not, fits their profile of an established big name manager and for some reason they seem to love Italian coaches. If Frank gets offered it, he’s gone no question but i don’t think he will be offered it, nor is it the right time for him. The Chelsea job will come to him at the right time. Hopefully for us that is in another 2 years and we’re an established premier league side. But irrelevant now....let’s focus on Wembley!!!
  13. Last two times it has been grid lock at Stanmore owing to 10,000 people having the same idea. Got the old mans blue badge, park in the villa car park next to the stadium, if we lose it’s staight out and home before they think about leaving the ground, if we win they will have all gone by the time we are ready to set off ! Winner winner !

    Gary Cahill

    Can't see it. We play with a high line as we press high. Therefore we need CBs with pace. Cahill is slower than Keogh.
  15. The M1 was crazy in 2014 playoff. Had to drive through small Leicestershire villages for a long time.
  16. I have to say, I loved @BurtonRam7 matchday plan too. No bravado, no BS, just a lad looking forward to possibly the best day of his life, and sharing it with family and friends. Even if it goes tits up, I get the feeling it's a day he'll remember forever regardless of result, because he's shared it with the people who matter, and made the time to make it that way.

    Yea inside posts, like this
  18. At first glance, I thought a couple of them were ridiculously tall!
  19. We’ve had a brilliant season. Loads of highs...great bond between Our Club and our fans. Let’s hope it ends on a high. But if it doesn’t, let’s ensure we stay to the very end and show out appreciation and take a leaf from Legia Warsaw’s book. “If you can meet with Triumph and Disaster And treat those two imposters just the same,...” ⚽️🐑
  20. In my 44 years of watching the Rams . Claude gets in at least two of my select elevens. 1. Team of the biggest waste of money . 2. Team of the worst players I have seen in the shirt .
  21. Oh poo, better let Sheff Wednesday know that so they can put em straight.
  22. Piss taking aside, what a lovely gesture to rescue our favourite hapless mod who didn't have enough faith in Frank and the boys to plan ahead better. I don't know how @David keeps him on, if he wasn't at the match he'd be on a campsite in the middle of nowhere, and as much use forum-wise as suncream in Devon at the end of May.
  23. You all know I find writing therapeutic by now right? Loneliness and if ANYONE ever feels like this, drop me a message and I'll be there like a shot. Nobody visits because Nobody cares. Nobody asks How are you? because Nobody dares. Nobody writes and Nobody calls Nobody worries how far he falls. He’s Nobodies lover and Nobodies true friend He has Nobody to keep fighting for, right until the end He’s found himself being somebody Nobody chose, Nobody thinks of and Nobody knows. There’s Nobody with him as he eventually falls asleep And Nobodies there again to dry the tears he can’t help but weep. Nobody by his side, Nobody in his bed. Nobody to turn to when he gets those thoughts in his head. Now he recognises Nobody to be his best friend. And he needs Nobody to help his heart mend. He wants Nobody to come around for a talk. And he waits for Nobody to take him out for that walk. He knows Nobody is the one he can trust And he’ll talk to Nobody as often as he must. Nobody makes him laugh , Nobody makes him cry. Nobody makes him get up in the morning and Nobody tells him why. Thank God for Nobody. Where would he be without you?
  24. Just think of all the forum members who have missed out on some of the 'special bounces’ we've seen on Twitter recently.
