    DC-1975 reacted to angieram in v Wigan (a) match day thread   
    OK, for everyone at the match and wondering why it was a 'game of two halves' today; did anyone notice the weather? In those squally showers we were kicking against 60 mph headwinds. Wonder why passes were falling short all the while? There's your answer. And even running into that is bloody hard work!
    We needed to score more first half as that was always going to happen second half. As it was, we were rather wasteful and then got drawn into their silly attempts to get Wilson sent off and even up proceedings. I was relieved when Lampard took him off - we need him against Forest.
    In the first half Wilson, Bogle, Lawrence and Marriott looked good; second it was Huddlestone, Tomori and Keogh who put their bodies in the way of Wigan's direct, bustling play.
    Fair play to Paul Cook for making the changes to keep Wigan competitive. I would have had a bit more sympathy though if the idiot Morsy hadn't been so blatant in his pathetic attempts to get a foul at every turn. He was lucky not to get a second yellow - or an Oscar. Prat! 
    Well done Derby for a battling performance against a team that loses very rarely at home. Hope we are saving the scintillating finishing for a week on Monday. COYR!

    @Steve How Hard?, @King Kevin, @reveldevil, @Mucker1884 - cheers fellas. It does mean a lot and reading other people's stories has helped too. I'm sure most of everyone on here has been affected in some shape or form by cancer and I'm hopeful that those who unlike my needy self, have suffered in silence, will also be heartened by the shared experiences and kindness shown. For my part, I'm genuinely touched and most appreciative for all the kind words. Thanks again chaps 👍

    I defended Rowett till the day he left, but I, like I suspect others, have moved on and don’t feel the need to debate his tenure still as it’s been done to death.
    Frank Lampard is now the manager, he’s the man that needs our support now, he will also have that until the day he leaves and the club and m whilst we’re the getting results which put us on track for promotion.

    I'm a Bellew fan too and don't give him more than a punchers chance BUT...
    Usyk is an immense fighter. He's got a solid jab, his footwork is A*, he fires in from so many angles, he has more movement in his shoulders than Bellew has with his head! He sets traps when he finishes a goading attack. However some of his attributes are being played up. He isn't a massive puncher. So providing Bellew can see the shots coming and can control the distance then he should be able to take them on the chin all night. And Usyk can be hit. Once he softens you up and steps in, he admires his own work a bit. He's been hit a few times in previous fights by going into his routine and a wild swing has hit him. He can be hit. He has lost rounds too. He doesn't instantly find his flow.
    Bellew needs to control the range. He needs to force Usyk to respect his power at every opportunity. Usyk is supremely confident. He's an arrogant fighter who completely believes he's the best boxer above light heavyweight. And he probably is. If Bellew can take away his rhythm and hit him hard then it just might distract Usyk long enough to land a real KO shot. 
    But Usyk has fought the elite and they couldn't do it. I don't think Bellew is good enough either but Usyk isn't invincible and Bellew will have the script. 
    Usyk seems like a top bloke too. Daft as owt. 
    I'm going Usyk with a points win and maybe a knockdown. A Bellew win by KO is more likely than Leicester winning the PL though.  
    I don't believe Usyk will have it all his own way.

    Joel is doing so well he's coming home!!!😁😁 just waiting for his meds to come to the ward then we are escaping!
    Been a very distressing few days, lots of tears, very little sleep but we got there. If you're squeamish stop reading here!
    Joel had a huge abscess, lots of pus, a severe infection and a hole in the cavity wall. All the infected bone has been drilled out and removed along with all of the infected tissue and abscess. They have widened his ear canal so air can get in and help keep it dry and this will make it easier in clinic to keep an eye on it and hopefully help prevent a cholesteatoma returning. Thankfully they are pretty sure that the infection has been contained in a cavity away from the brain. He has stitches inside and out but on the outside the have gone through the same scar as his last op as his head already looks like spaghetti junction.
    We won't find out for another 4 weeks when the packing is removed if Joel's hearing on his right side has been affected for better or worse. As he is 100%deaf in his left side he can't hear anything at the minute, we are communicating via a notepad and very elaborate acting!
    Still got a long recovery ahead but my little soldier is doing great.  So proud of him xx❤❤
    Thankyou so much for all of your support and kind words, it means the world xx🙂🙂

    Fully deserved as well, some of our hold up and link up play was fantastic for a club of our stature.
    I appreciate you boys are used to watching faster, better players but our whole squad cost less than the price of mason mounts  big toe nail.
    We were absolute class and a couple of cracking goals.
    Was absolutely screaming at Fraser to play it for the first. When will I learn.
    Delighted for the lads, delighted for Nige, delighted for the chairman and delighted for the proper fans.

    DC-1975 got a reaction from I know nothing in Death - Are you ready?   
    My wife passed away in June, 18 months after being diagnosed with cancer. The cancer was incurable from the beginning and when the chemo stopped working, she was told she had 6 weeks - 6 months to live. 2 weeks later she went into hospital with a temperature and after being examined we were told she now only had days. Her condition deteriorated very quickly and she died 5 days later.
     
    Even with all the time we had knowing she was dying, we still weren't prepared.
     
    We didn't manage everything she wanted to do, but I imagine her only regret will be not seeing our daughter grow up.
     
    I agree with others, power of attorney and having a will in place is essential.

    It's the little things - Keogh welcoming the subs into the goal celebrations, Marriott actively seeking out Fozzy at the end of yesterday’s game to say thanks for the cross, Carson's hug for Mount after his goal clearance. 
    Most telling, Lampard applauding the intention of Bogle at a slightly misplaced pass that nearly came off.
    I think this team has been given permission to play without fear, to keep trying the positive and not to worry (or lay blame on individuals) when it doesn't quite work.
    I love it and we could all learn from the example our players are setting. Smells suspiciously like team spirit to me.
