    England v Croatia

    Lingard channelled his inner Dave Nugent to finish from a yard out. Deserved the win for sure. Bar about 5 minutes, Croatia looked distinctly average. Can't believe the stick Sterling gets. Rashford impressed before he got a knock. Delph excellent first half. Chilwell didn't look great if we're looking for a scapegoat, but was 5 or 6/10. Good job Kane scored because he was anonymous until then. Don't like him playing as this false number 10 he seems to have decided he is for England and Tottenham. If it lost the qualifying for the Euro's element, this Nations League lark would almost start to make sense. Good to stick one over the Croats.

    Derby Road Works

    Council have dug up the same 30 yard stretch near The Hollybrook in Heatherton 4 times so far this year resulting in 3 way traffic lights. Beyond the obvious stupidity of that in itself, it's the way they appear to wait until the schools are back before digging it up again, seemingly just to cause more havok.

    Why are they still going off tonight?

    Christmas presents.

    Could do with a pack of Tungsten-tipped screws I guess.

    Underrated away day, Wigan.

    Forest at home moved to the Monday

    Toyota Upper's most poshest normal seats are £43 (butler not included) so unless there's an error on the page, £47 doesn't sound right. Still an outrageous price for 2nd division football but...

    Oh go on then, where are we eating?

    Annies is a decent burger so good that I don't have to go to Notts for that now. Favourites in Derbo: Himalayan Gurka for a curry. Lorentes for tapas. Pierre Victoire for Froggie. Cucina for Itai. Sals for a fry up, although this has sold up now, so too bad.

    Jim Smith Recognition

    Love TBE, but definitely falls under "Cult Hero" rather than club legend. Similar to Stimac, Eranio, Wanchope of the same era. He's appreciated by the fans and I think that's what counts. Super manager for us, top character but ultimately didn't win us anything so can't see him getting a statue or stand named after him.

    Rate the last film you saw partie deux

    Superbad. Basically American Pie meets Inbetweeners. Decent enough, gets a bonus point for nostalgia. Steve Howard/Old fashioned number 9

    What are you reading?

    The Catcher in the Rye - J.D Salinger I dig it. Wish 16 year old me had read it.

    Derby County v Aston Villa Match Thread

    Not going but wish I was. Even going to attempt to listen to Ramage et al from 3pm. That is how hyped I am for us today. 2-1 the Rams! Do it for Dean Yates. Tough game ahead.

    Use the sausage as a breakwater!

    Boca v River

    River! Forza the Bourgeoisie! Two classic kits though.

    Rooney 120th Cap

    Devalues winning an England cap. Harms the progress of the national side. Makes the FA look even more stupid than normal. Boosts Rooney's image. Shows Southgate up to be a puppet. Sells more tickets to the proles, increasing the wealth of Rooney's Foundation without him incurring any costs. Reduces the status of an international fixture to that of a pre-tournament celebrity match. Celebrates a guy who 'retired' from England duty when he realised he wasn't good enough any more. I'm not much of a fan.

    European Super League

    It's a power grab by FIFA to take money away from UEFA and put it into the envelopes addressed to Zurich rather than Nyon. The clubs, especially the nominated 11 'founders' that can't be relegated won't exactly object because it gives them a nice bargaining position with UEFA next time the TV rights money comes to be distributed for the Champions League. I welcome it though because I think it would fail. The market for football is already extremely saturated, I'm not sure that the appetite is that much higher amongst fans to watch PSG vs Barca on a Saturday evening rather than Man City v Spurs in the Premier League. Football is not like other capitalist endevours though because the end game would need at least two clubs to enable the sport to continue, rather than simply end up with one giant hegemonic corporation.

    Maybe we're just not going to play it at all and we'll be awarded a 5-0 win by default.

    18/19 Match Thread

    Watched Inter-Barca. Decent game, Barca without Messi had enough chances to win 3 or 4-1, but Suarez kept fluffing his lines. Coutinho was superb throughout. Quite impressed with Inter though, Icardi is on fire, Perisic always a threat on the left and Brozovic seems a good player under the radar. Don't think Spurs will beat them.

    When You Were A Teenage Ram (14-16)

    14 in '06, so Darren Moore, Seth, Oakley, Howard, Barnes, Lupoli. 15 in '07, so... erm... Hossam Ghaly? 16 in 08, Commons and Hulse were the diamonds amongst the Savages and the Pereplotkins. Think Paul Green might have had a half decent season around then.

    Zan Fish North Stand

    They're opening a new branch in Littleover so maybe had to cut somewhere else?

    If I didn't know better, I'd think I had a house on the Gaza Strip and the Israelis were coming again, the volume of some of these duckers. Gonna have to fight this with an extremely loud blast of Hendrix on the stereo.

    Best TV Dramas

    Well House of Cards has been ruined... Not even so much as a parting scene for Spacey.

    Let’s recommend podcasts

    Caught on the Wire - great in depth chat about The Wire, episode by episode. This is Deep Play - not active any more but basically two or three blokes sat in a kitchen in Dulwich discussing the problems with modern football in an extremely high-brow fashion. Prepare to learn, amongst other things, about how the joys of following Gateshead United through the non-league football pyramid, can be juxtaposed against the works of Roland Barthes and Jacques Lacan.
