    Can’t we just use the swear filter to detect the word dud and change it to amazing?
    Or even better, amazeballs

    I'm still waiting for confirmation from our resident expert, of whether Marriott meant it or not, before giving him any credit. My guess is that it will have just been a strike in the general direction of the goal and he was lucky.

    Carl Sagan got a reaction from BurtonRam7 in Jack Marriott   
    Absolutely meant it, guiding it into the far corner when a more direct contact had to send it the other way making it easier for the keeper to anticipate and save. I thought it was a finish of the very highest order and demonstrated that Jack has the ability to go go right to the top. The shot he had at the end of the first half with his left foot also showcased amazing technique to get the ball on target, but it was a good save.
    It's early days, but the signs are good. If he keeps up the intensity (and he's seeing the benefit of doing that and as FL says, Nuge is a great role model) then it will be great for him and us.

    Very clever I thought to deliberately make sure he hit with his shin rather than getting a cleaner strike with his boot which may well have sent it wide. 😉

    I agree that he tries a bit too hard to be working class and gives it large about Alvaston etc, but he is famous and is actually quite watchable on film. 
    Liked 71 and unbroken. Played Bobby Charlton too. Steve bloomer next.
    Look out for him in the away end on weds.

    Given the confusion on here I just took a look and it claims 12 tickets are left. 

    Picked up a couple of tickets earlier on. I envisage a perfect day, taking the river bus (they have an onboard bar) from where I live down to the ground for pre-match fish n chips, followed by a glorious victory.

    Right then, that was a bit better wasn’t it folks? Told you all my return to pride park would bring an upturn in performance👀. Unfortunately I won’t be in the smethick end on Wednesday night, so you all may as well bin your tickets...
    Anyway, let’s hope that second half performance wasn’t a one off and we can finally find some much needed consistency now, if for nothing else to keep me in charge of these match threads! Up against Darren Moore’s team this time around and it’s a daunting prospect given their start to the season and attacking quality. We’re gonna need to be right on our toes defensively in this one, and be clinical up front.
    My team, given Bryson will be out I suspect..
    Carson
    Bogle Keogh Tomori Forsyth
    Huddlestone
    Wilson Mount
    Josefzoon Marriott Lawrence

    Carl Sagan got a reaction from SKRam in Jack Marriott   
    They showed a stat on the Quest highlights show for domestic goals (league and cups) scored that had Jack sitting in third behind only Kane and Salah. Not exactly sure of the timeframe but it was probably goals this calendar year.
    Great run when Wilson should have found him after intercepting the ball - would have been clean through if the pass had reached him. Great run when Lawrence had meandered through the defence - would have been clean through if Lawrence had passed. Amazing shot from nothing, the ball looping over his head at 1-1, that was very well saved. Shot wide from Fozzy's first cross; flicked in from Fozzy's next cross. Very exciting player.
    Shout out for Waghorn too. Lovely curlling shot just over and what a shame his header went inches wide. Summer signings ramping up.

    A final comment on this game from me, is that the officials did pretty well, led by Oliver Langford. There were decisions that outraged me, as there always are, but the real game changer was to allow the winning goal. 
    As soon as Jack flicked it in, I expected to see the flag go up, not because I thought he was offside but because those decisions often go against us. And it's tough to get them right. The replays showed just how close it was, and what a difficult call. Huge kudos to the lino for calling it exactly.

    Magnificent finish. Brilliant assist for Bryson. Unlucky flashing it passed the near post before the goal, but maybe it gave him a sighter?
    The one flaw all game, just to keep him on his toes and knows he needs to improve, was just after his goal he wasted an opportunity in the box when he should have played it across to Mount to score. But perhaps he was still cursing Lawrence for not playing him through to score earlier?
    Great game for Jack. So pleased we have him.

    Fozzy crossed for Waghorn's free header, for Marriott's shot wide and for Marriott's goal. Pretty sure there were several others.
    He was also involved in the first goal, drawing the opponent towards him before playing it through to Mount, so creating the gap for Harry Wilson to run into.
    At the back he was a calm presence, for instance his lovely header back to Carson. I love the extra defensive cover his height and strength gives us.
    Why the irrational dislike of him?
    Yes, Keogh had a great game and I'm also amazed we're 5th.

    It was that stupid Peter Banks responsible for a fair proportion of the yellows and a red! 
    He was the one out of control rather than our players.
