  1. That entire season was special, just riding a wave from start to finish, whenever we lost, it was just onto the next one. As fans you can't ask for more than the players gave that season and there was a connection because of it. (not just effort, not just winning, but magic + memories) But we just fell short over 46 games and just fell short in the play offs. I really went to Wembley 100% convinced we were winning, just as I saw frazer Campbell get pulled wide and thought danger had passed. Ps. Wow we scored some great goals over the 2 legs
  2. I'm absolutely on board with that. ....... Ponferradina is also basically the swindon in our league, in that best reason for living there is the fact it is close to a lot of cool places.
  3. I believe its where the 4 towers business complex is now
  4. Epic see-through masks it must be said. I mean they look so real.
  5. But 3-0 I stopped caring how many they scored. But with the performance I can feel it in my mood, I care. I don't want to, tell myself it's not worth it. But I care.
  6. It was written all over his face
  7. https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2021/feb/09/texas-lawyer-zoom-cat-filter-kitten I'm not a cat
  8. When teams prepare for us the week/days before the game, what do you think our strengths are considered to be? Mccarthy was pretty clear he saw our left side was weak, we all know it. We have also struggled for years with teams that sit in. Furthermore, Both v Brentford and Cardiff in different ways we knew what was coming, couldn't stop it. But what are our strengths? , what are the things teams have to stop us from doing or we'll punish them?
  9. Knew there was a game, knew what was coming, kidded myself this would be different as will next week, watched it anyway, drifted into inevitable, put myself in a bad mood. Been outplayed 3 weeks in a row, By 3 different ways of playing Derby no identify, pitch slogfest Brentford enough said Cardiff the power game Now looking down rather than up. Wondering when we'll have an identity that is good to watch. That's football. Mostly lows or annoyances sprinkled with the odd high.
  10. To my Shame I was once rather too close to swapping Madrid for the magic roundabout. Lucky escape
  11. Bobby 'Shadow' Williams What a name .. Peacock is essentially the highest scorer this century with 0 appearances in the 90s Must be close between him and Murray for top scorer this century.
  12. Who I think Packers Ravens Chiefs Saints Who I would like Rams Bills Chiefs/browns (torn between theories here) but I guess Chiefs Saints
  13. Resilient, hard working, defensive cohesion. Somewhere dull and boring going forward, yet at times clinical A number of times this season, I've felt like, we've won; that's all that matters. I feel we are stronger mentally this season which is a massive plus. But I wouldn't call it wonderful football, yet anyway.
  14. Moves and counter moves. What you've described is basically for me the joy of sport.
  15. You don't change, you double down. Change players, but you certainly don't change formation and tactics. For the last few years, we've had a plan B, c, D, e,f. Guess what we didn't seem to have: identity. They best teams are where everybody knows their role. They can have evolving jobs down to game management, but everyone knows. Last night was down to a lack of changes and tiredness. That's down to a management phylosophy of continuity from which they'll have to learn. Double down, build an identity. Then live or die by it. Now is not the moment to abandon it.
  16. If he just stood there and watched without making a challenge then he'd get pelters for a lack of effort and commitment. He was unlucky, was it even a clear cut pen in terms of position? Either you want players to fully commit and accept these things happen sometimes Or You allow those headers to go unchallenged due to a player not giving their all. You can't have it both ways, just not how it works.
  17. His goal kicks too. My goodness couldn't get passed the half way line. We were under pressure simply because we had a goal kicks, all teams knew there was a liability there it and set up to attack it.
  18. When I look at the squad this season, it feels to me as though its the strongest squad this decade. There are a healthy ammount of youngsters around including some that were out on loan now ready to seriously challenge the first time, even establish. Brunt, Martin, mawson.... Two exceptional veterans along with a highly regarded centre back. The one thing it's lacking is a Murray, Adomah type player... The exciting consistent winger who can also turn a game just like that but that's been the case for a while. Has the squad been this strong in the last ten years?
  19. The scores stick in the mind... The 1st because of the sheer positivity going into the season. The second because as soon as saw the team sheet with no new signings in the 1st 11. Starting the same 11 that were involved in the season before was just a feeling of "this isn't good"
  20. I looked it up, you are on the Money, my bad!!!
  21. Memory fades but wasn't the James 3-0 part of two opening day loses in a row 3-0? 1 v Reading possibly 1 v Leeds Not a 100% but something like that.
  22. You were so poor in one season, we had to stop it half way through. Fantasy is not your game
