    I ain't a friend of Panini anymore

    Genuinely, my friend and I absolutely stormed our primary school egg & spoon race, getting a much needed 1-2 for the green team, and it’s one of my proudest sporting achievements. Don’t take that away from me.

    England u17's

    Yep, but Italy were also on 6 points so were also taken into account for the head to head. So in the results between the three teams, England take 2nd on goal difference: Italy P2 W1 D0 L1 F3 A2 GD1 Eng P2 W1 D0 L1 F2 A2 GD0 Swi P2 W1 D0 L1 F1 A2 GD-1 Bit convoluted, but it's how all the UEFA competitions have worked for a while now I think (they may have always done it come to think of it, but not sure).

    Who is to blame and what are our actual ambitions.

    I blame Sammy Ameobi.

    who recalls when the Dolman stand "moved "

    So you’re “beating the traffic”, so to speak.

    Don’t think so - has been chosen for international broadcast I believe. So there will probably be a stream or three knocking about, but not on BCTV.

    Statement from Jon Lansdown + SC&T reply

    The clock on my phone is 10 minutes fast. I’d look a right plonker on 19 minutes. I’m assuming you meant to tag @The Joker in this, in reference to this image: In regards to a protest, I proposed something in another thread (here)... basically, absolutely pack out the South Stand, leaving the other two stands nearly empty. A show of unity between fans, an avoidance of detrimental atmosphere for the team (it may even improve it), and a bonus of demonstrating how safe standing could work. From that position, any other idea could also be implemented (placards, turning backs to the pitch, songs, etc.) - the only issue would be ensuring it's achieved safely, which may be too much of a risk.

    SC&T/FAN/Supporters meeting

    To add to (and combine) the protest suggestions from @Welcome To The Jungle and @lost black rat: I’ve seen some fans reluctant to join a walkout, either because they don’t want to negatively impact on the team, or they fear an increase in concourse takings during that time. So, in line with the theme of solidarity over the prices, how about (for want of a less douchey term) a “walk to”. This being, as soon as the half time whistle goes, everyone from the Dolman & Lansdown stands leaving their seats and relocating to the South Stand (as it’s the stand least affected by the price increases). With enough notice given to those already there (and all the extra room since the redevelopment) we should be able to give everyone enough room to stand shoulder to shoulder in unity. Once there, pull out @lost black rat‘s red cards, and we’d have an absolutely packed home end, with a higher concentration of red cards on display, and the “priced out” stands near empty. Of course, everyone would need to make sure they’re calm and careful enough to ensure the extra bodies didn’t cause issues, and it may not be feasible due to this anyway (if something were to happen I’m sure the club would take a harsh line & thus be able to dilute the effectiveness of the protest)... but if it were to work smoothly, it’d have the double bonus of demonstrating the workability of safe standing. Possibly nonsense, but a thought that came to mind, and one others may be able to improve.

    what benefit have we had from the january window?

    Wouldn’t be the same without the lucky pizza/soup/insert other type of food that’s consistently inconsistent here. Careful though, don’t get complacent and turn in a few under par meals, else everything that’s gone before will be meaningless and I’ll campaign to have you evicted. That seems reasonable, right? Recovered thanks, but my trousers still carry traces of the bloodstains. Totally worth it.

    Dubai. What a waste of money

    Yep. Just got back in my Delorean and in the reality in which we didn’t go to Dubai, we’re 5 points better off, so the trip has literally cost us wins v Fulham & Burton, and a draw v Preston. We also lost against Sunderland, though, so everyone actually complained about the trip even more than in this reality. (We drew against Cardiff, in case you’re wondering). All that said, a different me turned up in a different Delorean last week, and in his reality we missed out on winning League One and lost in the playoff final. Sucks to be him, right? Well, apparently not. We snuck up in 2nd the season after and are now 6th in the Premier League. Always thought that title win was detrimental in the long run. Anyway, better be off, a me with two kids and a bionic arm just turned up in a Daewoo, so I’m off to find out what the bejeesus is going on with that.

    what benefit have we had from the january window?

    That’s a shame you feel that way. Hopefully you’ll find some joy in it somewhere. For instance, these are just a few of the things for which I'll remember this season: Celebrating with wild incredulity as we went 3-0 up in the first 30 minutes of the season. The carnage & ecstasy that followed Reid’s last minute equaliser at Brentford. Flint’s winner at Reading, where I was convinced we’d come away with nothing, and had to triple check it was actually our centre back with that finish. Experiencing twelve different emotions simultaneously in under 4 minutes at the end of our match away at Wolves. Thinking that Bryan’s goal against Crystal Palace was the icing on the cake of a tremendous match, only to be proven wrong within minutes by O’Dowda. Embarking on a rather ludicrous journey up to Hull, to then question why we’d bothered, before experiencing that wonderful comeback and demolishing my knee in the process. Going berserk in my local pub in London as we scored the winner against Sheffield Utd, with onlookers barely realising there was a football match happening. The mad dash from London to Bristol, for THAT early Christmas present, and the sheer disbelief that followed as I couldn’t physically walk down from the top tier and so just collapsed into a phone call across the pitch with my brother & nephew. An excellent Boxing Day trip with another brother, courtesy of the previous brother & nephew, with ridiculous hot chocolates thrown in for good measure. Going berserk in that pub again, this time against Blue Manchester, and this time with people actually appreciating it. The pride and joy that emanated from both those games, regardless of the result. Being able to sit down in a room in Iceland, over 48 hours after the event, and watch the entire 90 minutes of our game against Sunderland, with all the confusion, disbelief, and utter nonsense that came with it. The frustration at not being able to travel back for the Sheffield Wednesday game due to snow, but also how that was rendered meaningless as I got to listen to it in a brand new flat with someone I love. All the marvellous food, and fun, and chats, and jokes, and general merriment along the way, provided by excellent sisters, brothers, nephews, nieces, friends, and strangers. As I say, I hope you’ll look back with similar memories, one day.

    Need to win 6 of 9.

    I realise that our only frame of reference is recent form, and so am not surprised at (nor disagree with, really) comments like these, but have we not all watched enough football in our lives to realise it’s not as simple as that? Last 12 league games of 2017: W8 D2 L2 - 26pts First 12 league games of 2018: W2 D5 L5 - 11pts ”On current form”, at the end of 2017, our new “current form” was just as unlikely as we’re claiming improved future form is. That’s just the most obvious example as well. Wolves: Last 11 of 2017: W9 D2 L0 - 29pts First 11 of 2018: W5 D3 L3 - 18pts Fulham: Last 12 of 2017: W5 D3 L4 - 18pts First 12 of 2018: W10 D2 L0 - 32pts If we take the start of their 15 match unbeaten run as the “pivot point”: Before: W5 D4 L6 - 19pts After: W12 D3 L0 - 39pts Notably, Fulham’s last loss was against Sunderland, in what was their first home win in a year. Nothing about that screams “15 match unbeaten run coming up, strap yourselves in”. So no, I don’t disagree with the comments. It is true that if we gain the same results from the next 9 games as the last 9 games (i.e. 10pts) we probably won’t make the playoffs. But I’d argue that such a replication of form is in fact the unlikeliest outcome. Mainly, though, I just don’t see the attraction of getting worried about our own flawed visions of the future. Seems like wasted energy to me.

    He also won a lot of matches at Barnsley. And last season. And this season. Why does this type of run carry more importance for you than our form that preceded it? I’m genuinely interested.

    January - March 2017 Reading (H): L 2-3 Fleetwood (H) (FAC): D 0-0 Cardiff (H): L 2-3 Fleetwood (A) (FAC): W 0-1 Forest (A): L 1-0 Burnley (A) (FAC): L 1-0 Sheffield Wed (H): D 2-2 Rotherham (H): W 1-0 Derby (A): D 3-3 Leeds (A): L 2-1 Fulham (H): L 0-2 Newcastle (A): D 2-2 Villa (A): L 2-0 Burton (H): D 0-0 Norwich (H): D 1-1 Wigan (A): W 0-1 W2 D4 L6 10pts January - March 2018 Villa (A): L 5-0 Watford (A) (FAC): L 3-0 Man City (A) (LC): L 2-1 Norwich (H): L 0-1 Derby (A): D 0-0 Man City (H): L 2-3 QPR (H): W 2-0 Bolton (A): L 1-0 Sunderland (H): D 3-3 Leeds (A): D 2-2 Fulham (H): D 1-1 Cardiff (A): L 1-0 Sheffield Wed (H): W 4-0 Preston (A): L 2-1 Burton (A): D 0-0 W2 D5 L5 11pts So no, not well, but better by a point. Draw & a replay against Fleetwood, & a loss to Burnley is also subjectively worse than a 3-0 loss to Watford with a team of kids & two last minute losses to Man City. The wider context of the season makes 2017 worse, too, I’d say - but appreciate such a context hasn’t been mentioned. Remains to be seen whether we can better the 16pts we subsequently achieved in 2017 ‘til May. Here’s hoping. Interesting to note just how similar the run has been, though.
