  1. The view of the pitch is much better now. I used to love standing in the EE (between the two central pillars) but the view was terrible. Even when we had a corner at that end it was impossible to see the player taking the corner and you just had to wait for the ball to swing over. Quite often when we scored it was difficult to see the ball go in and you only knew it was a goal because of the celebrations. Exciting, but I don’t know if I’d like to go back to that. Racism has already been mentioned on this thread. Sadly it still rears its head even now, but nothing like on the scale I remember it as a child in the 80s when racist chanting, monkey noises etc were commonplace. Absolutely awful and I’m glad nowadays it isn’t like that.
  2. The performance v Huddersfield was the most cohesive I’ve seen us in quite a while. Having Nagy and Massengo in midfield seemed to free up Brownhill, who had one of his great marauding games. Also Eliasson seemed to revel in being on the left rather than having to constantly cut it.
  3. That West Brom late equaliser really hurt - we had played so well that day and deserved the win. After the win at Portsmouth I convinced myself we were going to stay up. Their fans were definitely sore losers that day - I remembering getting loads of verbal abuse after leaving the ground.
  4. This is absolutely devastating news. RIP Amora.
  5. Agree that Nagy and Massengo were superb today. I love watching Massengo play - the way he always looks around him before receiving the ball and how he uses his body position creates space for himself.
  6. He was a joy to watch and deserved his goal. I agree with @Davefevs - I also wondered why he was switched to the right in the second half, where he wasn’t as effective.
  7. Mine have already been mentioned. I reckon the loss of Afobe has affected us massively this season. He was leading the line so well. Other than that I agree we suffered rom the losses of Reid and Webster. And all these years later I still feel completely gutted that we let Bob Taylor go.
  8. The club is currently in the best state I have known it, both on and off the pitch, since I started attending games as a young boy in 1981. Expectations have become very high and in a few short years have gone from us just keeping a foothold in the Championship to signing players of real quality and looking at the top end of the table. At the moment I see no reason for us to get rid of LJ.
  9. I’m almost the same age and didn’t notice the music either. Something must happen to our hearing in our 40s!
  10. Enjoyed watching that. Looks like a happy squad.
  11. I found it quite funny. He’s got a dry sense of humour and always comes across well.
  12. For me, the ground lost some of its aura when it was made all seater - things like the loss of the distinctive floodlights and the way the shape of roof of the Williams changed when it was extended (and the removal of the old advertising hoardings hanging from the roof). I ‘m really pleased with how AG has been redeveloped and couldn’t be happier that we stayed in our spiritual home.
  13. I find O’Dowda frustrating (he’s got undoubted potential but is inconsistent), but one thing I’ve always liked about him is the defensive side of his game - always seeming to be willing to track back and help out the full-back.
