    Oh, Angie. Try to keep up!
    Go round the world and Cara Delevigne stares out at you from almost every billboard in every major city. She's the world's number one supermodel and the face of Burberry and Rimmel among a million other things, while also being a major movie star nowadays. She started out in Michael Winterbottom's Face of an Angel (I even met her at the premiere!) but moved on to much bigger budget stuff such as Suicide Squad and Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets.
    But she's also a star in the videogame world (playing and voiceovers). Loved her appearance at the end of this Call of Duty ad:

    If anyone sees or hears a tall, fat, miserable looking bloke with a southern accent, do say hello, it's my Birthday tomorrow!! Lol.
    Why miserable? Just realised it was 40 years ago that I first saw the Rams play at the Goldstone Ground.
    Still wondering why I didn't go for Liverpool like all my mates did at that time, oh well, we play the hand we're dealt! Thanks Grandad!!
    A win would be a nice Birthday present Frank, can you please sort if for me!
    Up the Rams!

    Thanks. I couldn't face the match thread so have only looked at the most recent pages. Good to see a sensible analysis of how things panned out.
    When I got home last night I could have thrown something at the TV watching the highlights, because we again gave a goal away seconds after taking a stupid freekick in the opposition half. I probably shouldn't have posted, but making bad decisions and not learning from them drives me mad. Stealing a quote from the "Classic movie scenes" thread in The Pub I'll say:
    The first rule when taking a freekick in your opponent's half is you do not put your defence under immediate pressure.
    The second rule when taking a freekick in your opponent's half is you do not put your defense under immediate pressure.
    I was very surprised to see two midfielders with very little match fitness picked together. It could be argued, "How do they get match fitness except from playing?", but it seems perverse to start both together in a vital league match when that's not enforced. As you say, we'll see if the sacrifice was worth it. If we reach a Wembley FA Cup semifinal, is this season a success? I think it has to be given the last time we reached an FA Cup semi we were league champions.

    (Posted 18/12/2018 on thefa.com):
    The FA has today announced that fifth round replays in the Emirates FA Cup will be removed from this season’s competition, one season earlier than previously planned.
    This season’s fifth round will remain as originally scheduled on the weekend of 16/17 February, moving to midweek in 2019-20 – with no replays – as part of the mid-season player break agreed by The FA, Premier League and EFL in June.
    Therefore, from this season onwards, fifth round ties will be played to a finish on the day, with extra-time and penalties if necessary.

    Other than for a week or two around October, when I let myself get carried away, l have never thought this team were good enough to get a top two place. We are far too inconsistent, and rely on a few moments of individual magic to get us points.
    We should however be good enough for 5th or 6th, and we need to keep chipping away averaging 2 points per game to season end.  I think we can do that.  If we can get into the playoffs then it’s anybody’s call - we seem to play better in ‘cup ties’.  Think we will play well Saturday.

    Carl Sagan reacted to David in Rams with and without Huddlestone starting   
    Older players you have to manage game time more, it’s possible Huddlestone simply can’t play 3 games in a week without running him into the ground.
    Lampard right or wrongly probably saw last night as being the better game to reset his legs ready for Saturday.
    Had we won last night with Huddlestone, benched him Saturday and played Johnson or/and King, knocked out the cup, he would also come under fire for playing a weaker team. 
    Always said team selections are easier on the internet where we assume every player is 100% fit and ready for 90 minutes.
    We don’t have a like for like replacement Tom, as you say it’s a shame he’s not younger. Definitely a position that will need to be addressed in the summer.

    I was at the match last night (still in Ipswich) and just catching up with this thread. My first observation is that there are about 9 different 'scapegoats' mentioned. We all agree we were slightly off it, but everyone has a different reason why. 
    That says more about how we were set up and why that didn't work than it does about individuals.
    What a great start and did we score too early? There's never a bad time to score in my opinion but it did spur Ipswich on in front of a pretty poor crowd who weren't expecting much. However, our inability to counter-attack with more ruthlessness helped to get them onside.
    Despite what people say , I thought our movement off the ball was good last night and we did find ourselves in some promising situations around the box but wasted them either looking for a better angle to shoot from or not shooting at all! At that stage I thought a second goal would come. The pitch wasn't really suited to a slick passing game hence the misplaced passes; couple this with some pernickity refereeing leading to a lot of soft free kicks against and our intent seemed to diminish.
    I thought Johnson played well first half BTW. King showed one or two nice touches but not really up to the pace of the game - he's badly in need of match time which is hard to come by at this stage of the season.  Wilson needs to be playing in the Prem as he's just a target for physical attention, as was Lawrence - both carrying knocks from relatively early on. 
    Second half I think that King and Johnson's lack of game time started to show and our stupid free kick (when wIll we start managing those better?) for an equaliser that gave them and the crowd the confidence they needed to be more creative. How we didn't concede again during that time I am not sure and I have to mention the superb clearance off the line from Holmes, who otherwise had a patchy game.
    At this stage things needed changing badly and I thought Frank was a little slow to react. 
    It wasn’t until all three substitutes were on the pitch that we started to gain back some control and this was mainly due to Bryson replacing King, who did little second half other than cause the poor play that led to their goal. 
    I have read a lot of negative comments about Nuge's finishing and don't disagree, but it was his presence that enabled us to win some aerial duals and help get that ball into the box and bring Waghorn back into play, helping to create those late chances so it wasn't all a negative for me.
    We seemed to have several of those chances in a hectic last ten minutes but not the right bounce or first time shot to get the winner. It would have been hard luck on Ipswich if we had. They fought really strongly throughout whereas we seemed to be playing with one eye on Saturday ( the players as well as the manager.) 
    A disappointing but not devestating result, given how other games finished last night. We'll see whether the sacrifice was worth it on Saturday.

    A couple of weeks ago against Reading I lambasted Huddlestone for taking a freekick in our opponent's half that led immediately to an opposition goal through sheer crass stupidity. There is never any need to put yourselves under major pressure with a freekick when in that position. Watching King and Bogle they did the same thing tonight. Much more King's fault and, like Huddlestone, he's very experienced and should know so much better.
    I really despair. If you can't do the simple basics of football right you're never going to get automatic promotion. The equation is now down to 12 wins plus draws from 15 games. At least it looks as if we'll soon be put out of our misery and can focus solely on the playoffs.

    That was the Supporters Club end of season dinner last year. As you can see, all the players and manager attend each year and share tables with each branch.
    The branches near me meet regularly, put on buses for away matches and get an allocation of tickets as @Boycie says. 
    They aren't for everyone, but I would say the Supporters groups are still relevant, especially for fans who maybe aren't part of a group of friends who happen to be Rams supporters.

    I'm really not sure what our obsession is with playing and free kick within 80 yards of our goal backwards!
    It's literally the only thought in our players mind when we get a free kick, counted at least 6 or 7 even after their goal.
