Season Over?

Well it's not mathematically impossible, but I'd say it's highly unlikely that we're going to win enough games to sneak into a playoff berth now - particularly as our form over the past 13 games has been every bit as bad as that of our first 13. Our biggest failing this season has been insufficient ...

Re: Ox Files

That was fantastic. Helps that you chose probably my favourite ever season of course (only 83/84 comes close!). Just a shame that there's no footage of that Rosie screamer against Chelsea. I have a feeling I'm going to watch that many times over. Thank you for a little ray of light amongst the preva...

Re: Red fire coming out from his Gills

We definitely need a big old beast with a load of lower league experience somewhere in the back four to shore it up. Just someone to put a rocket up the rest of them. I said to anyone who'd listen before pre-season that we were a pair of full backs short of a really decent side, and that we'd need t...

Re: Next Season

A lot of sound analysis in Ty's post and I've also been doing my best to move on from Monday however much it hurts (still think the Exeter 2007 hurt more though). Agree with KE about goalkeepers. I think Easty would benefit from some proper competition. I think Mous is more likely to be a bit-part p...

Re: M40

That's the thing that saddens me most - that we'll now see the break-up of the best squad we've had in years. All the big moments - Eastwood's foot turning the ball in, Henry's one-on-one, Browne not chasing down that short backpass, Moore's *one* defensive error - all worked against us. Absolutely ...

Re: M40

Whatever happens tonight, it's been a wonderful - and somewhat unexpected - season. So many moments to savour: 10 goals in two games, for instance - four of them against West Ham, including a goal from Shandon that can only be described as utter filth; a great draw at St James' Park, followed by a r...

Re: Bapxit Day

I'm a big believer in square pegs for square holes and the lack of cover in defence is a major concern. I'm happy with Long at RB and I think his understanding with Sykes is worth persevering with, and I'm OK with Ruffs at LB although I do think the top half of division 3 is the absolute limit of hi...

Re: Cup draw

A great night where we rode our luck a bit against a powerful Sunderland side - who are clearly turning the corner under Parkinson - and prevailed with as pretty much a perfect execution of a penalty shoot out as you can get. As well as Mous's piledriver (Dave Fogg anyone?), you have to mention Fosu...

Fractured metatarsal. Out for 12 weeks. Poor kid, wishing him a speedy recovery.

We're having absolutely no luck with impact injuries at the moment are we?

Re: George Thorne

Hard to judge someone on 19 minutes of football but some of his passing in that short time was utterly sublime. Really, really sorry for the bloke, and wish him a very speedy recovery.

Re: Hammer Time

Won't say too much about that game other than I'm still buzzing about it 24hrs later and I think it was probably the best cup performance since we dumped Newcastle - Kevin Keegan and all - out of the same competition in 1983 (and I was at that one too (Jerome)). Magnificent. How the hell do you drop...

Re: Burton...

Agreed. Burton were a very good side on the night and were worthy winners. It's fair to say a few of ours were below par though (at least compared to previous performances this season). I think we may see Elliott Moore make his league debut on Saturday. We were back to the Mousinho error-strewn perf...

Re: Why?te

Not happy with this at all, bearing in mind the current parlous state of our squad.

Is it too much to hope that someone like Bogle coming the other way is part of the deal?

Grim season inbound, I fear.
