  1. Agree, the Sunderland doc is a really good watch. Love the fans passion up North. It is quite literally life or death with many being buried in the Sunderland football strip.
  2. Not surprised to be honest - Great club Burnley. Worked across that region for a few years and they have a very close connection to the local community. Nice touch by the club to do this. Clubs like Tottenham just stink. One of the reasons why I quite like the Championship as generally clubs are still in touch with reality and grass roots football.
  3. I remember the Ashton Gate 8 episode as a mad 13 year old City fan. I still have the paper cutting. Everyone should remember how close Bristol City came to folding. COVID 19 may well send a few clubs to the wall. Quite frankly, some of these Premiership players should be ashamed of there attitude to what is going on. Interesting read the other day about how even clubs like Brighton in the Prem are gonna struggle if this virus goes on indefinitely.
  4. Another great day out with the lot I was with at the time was Charlton away 2008 night game (the flare incident). The OB expected 500 to turn up, instead over 3000 went. It was one of those spur of the moment away games where word got round that a lot was going. The away end was noisy to say the least. It is quite often the spur of the moment games we all remember rather than the headline games.
  5. Too many away days to put on here as many were a bit sketchy to say the least. Bolton away 1990 was just one long mad day. Millwall away a few times in the 80s at the Old Den was memorable. Newport, Hereford, Cardiff, Plymouth, Bournemouth, Walsall, Brum, Swansea, Forest in the Cup, Leicester in the Cup, the list goes on. Just to say, the away day was also about some of the great mates I have made which without them would not make the away day. Great memories. Stay safe all you Reds.
  6. I am quick to criticise but also quick to applaud. Thought we played well today against a good team. Fulham’s 1st touch was sublime through the whole team, but also thought LJ got tactics right today. Great day out at the football. Enjoyed it!!! Well done LJ.
  7. Thanks! You saved me having to write a response to some **** comments!
  8. Rowett is a quality manager IMO. Knows how to set a team up to play a system. Millwall are a dark horse for the playoffs IMO. Hard to beat at home and capable of a result against anyone away.
  9. Oh dear there is a flare in the house!!! Good day out that. Loads of old skool City faces in there.
  10. If firm ground, Dier would go well over the jumps at Cheltenham next week.
  11. Think the passion and commitment to attend away games this season Is pretty low for many of us (including me). Newcastle, Boro, Sunderland, Leeds etc - there fans live and die football. Different culture up North. I work up there quite a bit and the “soft southerner” tag is regularly used for southern based football fans.
  12. Great post! In man management, anyone who is unsure of his “best team” will facilitate ongoing change trying to find the perfect balance/eutopia. It is a well understood human reaction to managing “difficult people”. Tombola may be a bit harsh, but Johnson does not know his best eleven. He has the luxury of a huge squad which may be a negative rather than a positive?
  13. 3 Books. The titles are - Book 1- My team’s Identity Book 2 - The meaning of Busy Bees Book 3 - How to give Excuses
  14. Johnson says “No not this season”! Because the Corona virus is gonna enforce even more team changes for the Fulham game next weekend and this will upset our “identity” for the run in. You heard it 1st here.
  15. Getting his excuses in before the sack in the summer possibly? Classic positioning from a manager who knows he is on borrowed time.
