  1. Well said Ellafella, and well written HuddersRam. This is a brilliant article. Can't wait for the book! Keep us posted please.
  2. Defo the party atmosphere at Carrow Rd, as we vowed to be back in '81! 😪 I was also there Mucker! Amazing atmosphere. Dexy's Midnight Runners; Alan Biley and Dave Swindlehurst; refusing to leave the terraces until the team came back out; battling the obnoxious police as they herded us to and from the ground; following the team coach all the way back. Special times!
  3. This may be old in the tooth, but I think Murdoch and Sky are to blame for all of the mess we are currently in in our society. I know that sounds like a sweeping judgement, but the 'media machine' has absolutely taken over. Have you noticed how many 'experts' (presumably on fat salaries) 'grace' our TV screens? Even the BBC is following the Sky model for news broadcasts. On the BBC news the other night, we got told first by Huw Edwards that the Prime Minister was responding to treatment and had been sitting up in bed. It then showed a clip of Rishi Sunak saying exactly the same thing. We were then transferred to Laura Kuennsberg who then said exactly the same. So, in the space of 30 seconds, we received the same bit of news 3 times by people who all command their wedge. Why? So called experts on football clutter the TV coverage. Why do we have to listen to the likes of Gary Neville, Roy Keane and Graeme Souness? Worse still, Don Goodman et al. How much of a pay cut are they taking whilst they castigate professional footballers for not doing more? Journalists shamefully hound people to get an exclusive, going to lengths that have infringed civil liberties and ruined lives. Reality TV has led to the rise of so called celebrities who court the media attention. Why should I care about the Kardashians or who is the latest in the Big Brother house or the jungle? When you stop to consider how much money is being flushed down the toilet to support all this drivel, it is frightening. Call me old school, but for me, it is the 'cancer' of society. Rant over. Bring on the day!
  4. Although we deserved to lose, I'm with B4 in the sense that we did so much right. Sibley looked a real threat, Knight was class and Bird gets better with every game. Also thought Whittaker looked promising. There is plenty to be optimistic about. UTR.
  5. Got to say folks, I very rarely post a topic on this board. Never thought there'd be so many replies. But to coin a Churchillian phrase, 'Never, in the field of computer forums, has so much been written by so many with so few being relevant to the OP'! Btw, I did not mean to be unkind to Mel. The guy really is a legend. Just thought you might find my plight amusing.
  6. Saturday morning, travelling down to Swansea, we stopped at Strensham Services on the M5. Just having a McDonald's breakfast. I spot Mel Morris. I pluck up the courage to walk over to him to say hello. With a cheery smile, he asks me how I am. I offer to shake his hand. He shows me that both his hands are full of ketchup capsules and says he'd willingly shake my hand, but does not want to get sauce all over me! My son is sniggering in the background. 'He's left you hanging Dad!' (Can't help thinking that Mel should fill his hands with something far less pleasant and then offer to shake the hands of Steve Gibson and the EFL!!). Fantastic day, however, and a fantastic win. Max Bird, what a hero. Mel Morris, what a guy!!
  7. Agree about the moaners, but the rest is just not true. South Standers DO sing.
  8. His English is certainly better than Bielsa's and Ramage, for that metter!)
  9. Disagree with plenty here (and I was also at the match). Hamer was fine. Bogle had a poor game. Clarke was very good, and the 'penalty' was a great tackle. Incompetent ref. Cocu was fuming. Lawrence barely deserved 4. Worst display in a Derby shirt. Can't see why he is being picked. The rest of the team clearly don't like him. There is so much more commitment from the rest when he is not in the side. Waggy put in a shift yesterday. Not great, but worth at least 6. Bloke next to me in the stand was on his back from the first whistle, and for the rest of the game; he'll have a heart attack at that rate. However, Waghorn is not a lone striker. We'd have been better with Martin if we were going to play that way. Good point, terrific finish by Holmes. (Actually, it is the ratings that I really disagreed with. Sorry Dcfcsr92; thought you had done them!!
  10. With Hamer for Roos and Sibley for Lawrence, that would be a winning team!
  11. Bit of an exaggeration. Constant shouts of 'Gerrit forward' when every forward player is still trying to get into position doesn't help. On what I have seen this season (I have been to nearly all games) he is a vast improvement on Roos.
  12. Agreed, he has fumbled the ball on a couple of occasions. You could argue that on at least one of those, the defenders weren't quick enough to react. On the second point, I think we are deliberately trying to transition to quicker counter attacks, so going more direct is perhaps a new strategy. I would sooner have that than the alternative. Passes sideways along the back four, then eventually back to the keeper and kicked into touch. He is definitely a bit more commanding in his area. I think he is worth hanging onto.
  13. Am I the only one who thinks Hamer is doing a reasonable job for us?
  14. No good if he's not the full shilling.
