  1. Am I Being Annoyed For No Reason?

    The only time the ticket checking has annoyed me this season was when my two kids went to the loo at the Sunderland game and weren’t allowed back in to S82 as I had their tickets. They’d just walked past the same stewards who wouldn’t let them back in and I only knew they were locked out because they took so long. They’re only 9 and 11 so had no clue what to do. Other than the odd lack of common sense like that I completely understand why they have to check tickets. There are always way more people in the singing section than there should be and it can get pretty overcrowded at times. I think expanding it next season would be a great idea if it’s logistically possible. As for the Lansdown argument, again I understand why the club would want to stop people taking the piss and getting the best seats on the cheap. If you have an ST you can move 3 times a season anyway so it’s easy enough to experience the Lansdown legitimately anyway.
  2. The megaphone

    I thought the megaphone bloke was hilarious. Definitely added to the atmosphere and his efforts with the new samba song were highly amusing. A few tried to shout him down but he was having none of it. Definite hit as far as I’m concerned - the guy was great.
  3. New signings plus Diedhiou back

    I agree. But so do O’Dowda and Paterson and both suit the way we play better for me. Paterson has been absolutely sublime at times this season.
  4. New signings plus Diedhiou back

    Do you genuinely believe that? I think Kent has huge potential going forward but he has the look of a talented kid about him for me. Bags of ability but his decision making and defensive play are poor. Paterson is going through a poor run but on song he is quick, tricky and has a fantastic goal in him. O’Dowda was superb before his injury too. Excellent going forward and also put in a shift to help out defensively - him and Paterson are big reasons why this season has been so good thus far. Kent clearly has bags of ability but hasn’t shown himself to be more effective than either of them imo.
  5. Johnson calling upon fans

    I was in S82 and from there it seemed as loud as any league game this season. Somehow we need to create a bit of that cup atmosphere in every game.
  6. Johnson calling upon fans

    I take your point but there have been times this season when the whole ground has been rocking. QPR after the sending off, Palace in the cup and of course the two Manchester games. It seems to me it needs to be perceived as a ‘big’ game for the atmosphere to be great from the start. Or something like a poor refereeing decision needs to foster a bit of a siege mentality in the stands. These next few home games are all massive so hopefully people will sense that and get behind the players from the start. I’m not holding my breath, but we can hope.
  7. Johnson calling upon fans

    It’s taken a dip in the last few games but I think the atmosphere has been pretty good in the most part this season. I remember shouting myself hoarse v Burton during the 0-0 for example and thinking what great support we were getting. Norwich and Sunderland were strangely flat though and I don’t know why. As LJ says it clearly makes a huge difference when the place is bouncing. Hopefully tomorrow will be more like early season and we can do our little bit to make a difference. COYR
  8. You could see it coming.

    We lack experience and knowhow when the going gets tough. This is why GON could be so crucial to us in the run in. We play some sublime stuff at times but that doesn’t get you up if you can’t see games out. Baker’s return can’t come soon enough either.
  9. Injury update

    I totally agree re O’Neil. I think he’ll give us some know how and experience that we have lacked at times over the past few weeks. He’s been very successful in this league before and I think having him to come on and help close out games will be a big boost to us.
  10. That was atrocious

    Easily the worst I’ve seen us all season. I can’t think of a single decent performance from any of our players. Desperately need a reaction next week now. Surely we can’t be that bad again.
  11. Player of the season (so far)

    It’s a difficult task to single out one player when there have been so many. Baker and Flint have been great. Wright has done a tremendous job out of position. Smith has been tireless. Pack has improved beyond belief. And Bobby has been absolutely magnificent, I’ve never known an engine like it. But the winner for me is Joe Bryan. He’s our most valuable asset and his tackling has been unbelievable at times. He’s scored some tremendous goals, his technique is great and he’s as strong as an ox. Keep hold of all of the above after Wednesday and we can dare to dream. What a season it’s been.
  12. One of Hollowhead’s Darkest Days :)

    Lovely to see Holloway having a cry after the game. QPR were absolutely terrible.... worst team I’ve seen at AG all season. He’s getting sacked in the morning
  13. Baker - Red Card

    Yellow for me all day long. It’s clumsy and late but he’s gone for the ball. Not malicious, not over the top - I was amazed when he pulled out the red card.
  14. Massive game today, I don’t like using the phrase ‘must win’ but this is as close as we’ve had to one of those for a while. We really need to get back to winning ways and we won’t get a better chance than against a poor team with a dreadful away record. Add in the Holloway factor and it should be an entertaining afternoon. Anyone in the home stands who clap that **** should be thrown out in my opinion. I’m going 2-1 City in a tight game. Wright and Bobby with the goals. COYR
  15. Parking nightmare tonight

    It does seem pretty obvious doesn’t it. If they had 3 buses running and really publicised the P&R service I reckon a lot more people would use it. As it is at the moment, it’s as much if not more hassle to get the P&R so people will just do what they’ve always done and drive to the ground.
