  1. 1,921 City fans at Selhurst for the play-off game, compared to 2,880 for the league game earlier that season when we lost 2-0, according to this: https://www.bcfc.co.uk/fanzone/away-days/away-days-200708/ I believe we didn't sell our full allocation for any of the three play-off away games we've played since 2000 (Cardiff, Hartlepool and Palace).
  2. Was at the game today - it was great to hear something approaching a genuine atmosphere. Both sets of fans were in good voice.
  3. 39 points from our last 39 games doesn't bode well for next season. It's just as well we started this season so well with four wins on the spin, otherwise we could have been in for a very tense end to the season.
  4. We made three substitutions during the final against Brighton. Wilkshire, Murray and Goodfellow all came on in the second half.
  5. Yes, and Croatia lost to Slovenia, and Holland lost 4-2 to Turkey (although the result in Istanbul was perhaps not a complete surprise - Turkey looked good). With only the group winners guaranteed a qualification spot, and with the ten runners up playing off with two other teams for only three further qualification places, it's entirely possible one or two of the more highly ranked nations could end up in the play-offs and / or missing out altogether, as happened to Italy last time out. Still early days, but the play-offs are best avoided.
  6. There was a statistic in yesterday's Times that since Mike Ashley bought Newcastle in 2007, their average league position among the 92 has been 14th (counting top of the Championship as 21st), and that in the preceding 70 seasons their average league position was 17th. So, on Ashley's watch they've actually finished three places higher on average than their long term mean before he bought them. Newcastle fans would no doubt argue that their performance in the more recent period before Ashley came in is a more appropriate yardstick to measure their achievement under his ownership, b
  7. It wouldn’t surprise me if we ended up with Michael Flynn from Newport. He wouldn’t be my first choice but I could see that sort of appointment happening.
  8. I suspect this game is resonating quite strongly with Tinnion. He probably had a similar feeling as Swansea scored at will in the 7-1 that was his last game as manager. That Swansea game was only 1-0 at half time. Today could get very ugly indeed.
  9. No doubt I’ll have missed a couple, but who are the others? David Seal, Paul Agostino, Nick Carle, Bailey Wright are the ones that spring to mind. I’d probably pick Agostino out of that lot (his cause helped by scoring against the Gas in that eventful game in December 96).
  10. I saw him play (and score) for Perth Glory in December 2019, in a 6-2 win v Newcastle Jets. Only just over a year ago but feels like a lifetime ago now. He still spent most of the game pointing and berating his teammates.
  11. Poland won't be easy and they're way overdue a win against us. We've drawn them in our group countless times over the last 35 years, and have finished above them pretty much every time - at some point they're due a result against us. I'd probably back England to get the better of them over the two games, but not with any great degree of confidence. That said, Sweden were the team I most wanted to avoid from pot 2. Last time in world cup qualifying they beat France, finished above Holland, and then knocked Italy out in a play off. The 'four team group' comment is also very true - go
  12. The BBC website were showing it live, as the balls were being drawn out of the bowls.
  13. With three teams left from pot 5, we were guaranteed one of Cyprus (last played them away in 1975), Armenia (never played) or Andorra...and ended up with Andorra, again (England played them four times in recent years). And with three teams left from pot 6, we were guaranteed one of Malta, Liechtenstein or San Marino...and ended up with San Marino (who we've also played four times in recent years). On the assumption that travel restarts towards the end of Q1 2021 (a big assumption, admittedly), the travelling highlights have to be Tirana and Budapest. Armenia, Cyprus or Liechtenstein
