    wouldn't have minded that goalie top as our away shirt instead.

    I had one guy furiously waving his match ticket/A4 sheet at me in the NE corner suggesting I was in their seat, quick flash of my ST card and another look at his sheet showed that he doesn't know the difference between 262 and 292 <sigh> this was 10 minutes into the game too.
    added to that the 2 fellas taking photos of the turnstiles on their phones as they were in the queue waiting to go in....
    a unique atmosphere indeed!
    have to admit this week I've been looking forward to the Blackburn game more than last night, would've been different had it been Man City or Arsenal or a prem side we haven't faced in a while but feels like we play United every year in the cups so that novelty/excitement of a facing a new side wasn't there for me either.
    have there been any updates on Lawrence's calf injury?

    what a refreshing surprise last night was! I've always anticipated and looked forward to every home game this season though that changed after Sheff Wed and Millwall the other week...to the point I was dreading last night... now can't wait for Thursday and not even so much for Rooney but more to see Bird & Knight build on last nights performance, and hopefully see Sibley get a run out at some point?

    seem to remember us hitting a purple patch around the time we had Commons, Bueno, Kuqi and i'm sure we had Luke Moore? in the team around that time too..

    I went to the Olympic Stadium to watch Hertha Berlin 3-3 Hoffenheim in November last year, bargain for 21 Euros... Joelinton & Reiss Nelson lined up for Hoffenheim, 3 goals in the first 15minutes.
    hell of an atmosphere from the Ostkurve based below us too, made a hell of a racket! 55,000 there that day? having a vendor guy walking up and down the stands filling up peoples disposable beers cups for 3 euros, ideal!
    the Bundesliga just do it right.

    was it just me are was there large sections of the crowd booing Kasey Palmer when he came off? what has he done to merit that? didn't leave on bad terms did he...was disappointed Lampard didn't look to get him back in personally.. though quickly got over that when mount & Wilson arrived.
    think I would feel more comfortable going forward with wing backs at least until we get Bogle back, Jozefzoon can't cross for toffee though he seemed to be seeing a lot more of the ball and was far more involved 2nd half, if we have no alternative zoon at RWB Lowe at LWB and take Malone out of the firing line.
    I'm all for Bielik getting a run of the games in a deep midfield role though have to admit he looked more comfortable in the middle of a back 3...him & huddlestone didn't work well in the middle IMO. know he played for the U23's the other night though feel it doesn't bode well for Shinnie when we have Bielik, Huddlestone, Evans & Knight all getting minutes ahead of him.. still hoping he gets chance to prove himself.

    ah ok, I stand corrected. thought for me, Bentley was the worst culprit for the time wasting. did think with their injury 2nd half along with the time wasting should've been more than 5 mins injury time, oh well.

    I walked out not feeling too downbeat from what I saw, once they had shook off the rustiness, the over hit passes first half etc. I thought a lot of the link up play was decent, just felt like it wasn't going to be our day... waghorn's saved penalty summed it all up.
    be interested to see what cocu decides to do about the situation with the full back's, really frustrated that Bogle picked up that injury as he looked great as always, struck the balance right between getting up to offer more width attacking without leaving Keogh high and dry at the back...same cannot be said for Malone, thought he had a solid season last year but was dreadful on Saturday, constantly losing possession and left Clarke to come across to cover time and time again as he was far too high up the pitch.. if Lowe isn't the long term solution covering Bogle at RB (on Saturday looked twice the player he did here last season after coming on) then he has a great opportunity making the LB spot his own. looks so much more confident! wouldn't be looking to cash in on him at all, more than capable of following Bogle's example.
    liked the look of Dowell, seemed to grow in influence as the game went on though not sure about Paterson, strikes me as one of those players who looks lively and busy without really offering anything? Marriott needed to be brought on 10 minutes sooner than he was too IMO. would like to see either Bielik or Shinnie in for Huddlestone, don't feel the need to see Bielik at CB only as cover if needed, looks like Keogh and Clarke are striking up a good understanding already.
    does anyone know what type of midfielder Shinnie is? is he a box to box midfielder or a deep lying defensive midfielder? would he be battling it out for a spot with Holmes/Dowell/Paterson rather than Huddlestone/Bielik?

    mine arrived this morning too...cannot wait for Saturday now! especially if there could be one or two new faces in by then too..
    was hoping Bielik would at least be on the bench tomorrow though Cocu said he would be 10 days away from being involved after Huddersfield, ah well.

    couldn't agree more! partly the reason I never felt too bitter about frank leaving. was the first thought that entered my mind walking back to Wembley Park station ''that's it, frank's done now'' just had that feeling Chelsea wouldn't be able to resist standing back and letting Sarri leave before approaching Frank and co. so accepted it before the media hype started.. yet always felt Mel would be aware of this from the start as i'm sure most did and would have a plan to use the exposure we had last year to aid in getting a manager of Cocu's calibre in and our transfers this summer. plus they (referring to Jody too) left on good terms, if anything I felt really uneasy reading comments  of rams fans slating him, claiming he's disloyal etc. there was really no need for it at all. far as i'm concerned looking back frank has done as much for us as Mel, DCFC and the fans have done for him. Mel appreciated what a great opportunity it was for them and thankfully the majority of our fans realised this too...anyhow, more excited about what could happen this year than I was this time last year.
