    I miss match day and actually going there, breathing it, feeling it. TV is an ersatz alternative. I watch it, enjoy it when we score but it’s like supermarket decaf in a cracked mug versus espresso in an Italian bar with the smell of fresh pastries. That wide eyed YESSSSS you share when we score.. unbeatable. 
    i have found I can’t write match reports with any knowledge or conviction .. yes sure, I saw it but I don’t trust my own view as the perception is so dulled so 2D. 
     
    I miss Karen’s free sweets,Waldo and his mate behind me giving me that exclusive fan commentary full of bias, contradiction and good humour. Then There’s the walk by the river .. anticipation before hand and smug grin afterwards if we’ve played well. Carling and crisps before kick off isn’t Haut Cuisine but it’s part of the ritual.

    I've seen a few people suggesting dropping Bird but I can't feel that's anything but a mistake. Honestly he's one of the first names on the team sheet for me and he's one of the few midfielders we have a drifting between the lines and linking up play.

    angieram reacted to DerpyDane in Limited attendance   
    Here in Denmark the crowds are starting to roll in. At first it was supposed to be behind closed doors for the rest of the season, then 500 was allowed to enter in accordance with the nationwide ban on large gatherings and now a new set of guidelines is implemented allowing up to 40% of the capacity. I was at a match yesterday with an attendance of around 7000 approximately a third of the total capacity. All this in the span of around a month. Not sure if we're the only country in europe easing up so fast but it wouldn't surprise me if full capacity is allowed when the new season starts in september. So far its worked rather well with only a minor exception in the cup final where a large group of fans were told to leave as they ignored the guidelines. But I guess time will tell if we're too optimistic.

    I think the 5 freekicks they got in the first 10 mins didn't help us settle.

    it was deflected right into the corner of Bird's shin. 
    As Lolley is their dangerman and wanted to cut inside, As Bird was inside Forsyth, It was not unreasonable to force him into Bird. Bird should have closed him down more and shouldn't turn his back. Hamer would have been wrong footed by the deflection and needed to see where the shot was going. Maybe his footwork could have been a little better. A top keeper may have saved it but it wasn't a 'mistake'.
    Like most goals it was a combination of 2 or 3 minor mistakes, some good play and luck.

    I never expected to be as close as this. Its all a bonus. If we run out of steam and finish 8th or 9th its still been a successful season in terms of my expectations and the adversities Cocu has experienced. 
    Good luck young rams, but win or lose well done for getting this far.

    Hmmm I agree completely and on paper both this one and Brentford look impossible to call as anything other than a painful defeat. However I am truly amazed with 5 games to go we are 7th and 3 points out of the playoffs.
    I think to make the playoffs we need 4 wins, looking at how Cardiff are going and also we’ll have to stuff them in one of those wins. A really tall order but exciting prospect 😊

    RHM didn't impress me - a bit of a speed merchant. We certainly have more promising lads coming through with Wilson and Archie stepping up to the U23s next season. I rate JML higher in terms of his current ability and potential) and he's 2 years younger too.

    I think Ravas is the one to look out for but he has to bulk up a bit first. Otherwise he will never cope with the forwards standing on him at every corner.
    He's a decent shot stopper and I would like to say normally good in the air, but I did see him drop a high ball one match this season and if he does that at Pride Park then our fans are very unforgiving.
    I think people have unrealistic expectations of goalkeepers over every other position, really. 
    If we counted how many goal-chances a forward misses, how many crosses not delivered by wingers or fullbacks or how many times a ball given away by almost anyone then I would say our goalkeepers (either of them) aren't at the top of the mistakes list! But of course, their mistakes cost goals - and games. 
    I hate it! 
    (And I would also mention some of the clangers previous keepers made if that wasn't a whole other thread!)

    I don't agree with having huge squads and I think that post-Covid more and more clubs will be trimming the size of the ones they have.
