  1. A draw would take us into 3rd in fact- balance trying to win with trying not to lose, but the pitch doesn't sound so easy so hopefully before then- if indeed we're still batting. Cricinfo says 20.3 overs left- if we could tick along at 2.5-3 an over then we'd be nearly 250 on by the close. Have a bash in the morning- 80 overs to try to win?
  2. That 50 partnership could've swung momentum- we're currently 175 ahead with 5 wickets left- without that last wicket partnership we'd be well ahead and wondering what time to declare.
  3. While since I've been tbh. Think I recall a mate- not me of course but a mate and this was without me there as I did not participate - telling me about how he snuck a variety of refreshments in routinely, Showcase Cinema De Lux at Cabot Circus IIRC. Anyway they seemed under the impression about outside refreshments at the cinema.
  4. Still think it possible there's some kind of dispute over allocation.
  5. On topic, Montenegro behind closed doors game for the England one. Bulgaria partial stadium closure for 2 games. @The Gasbuster - Yep that UEFA do nothing but fine a few grand eh. Unlike our own FA! Why Millwall racist chanting (small minority granted) v Everton and they did- they did- er, er, er- what was the question again. On this thing, potential issue/beginning of problems etc at Derby, can't say I'm surprised- I mean it's obviously a nonsense but does the cinema allow non medical related outside refreshments? Other clubs will certainly be looking at this with interest IMO.
  6. 4 batting and 3 bowling bonus points. At worst- talking worst case scenario that is if we lose we will be a mere 3 points off the top 3. Win and we'll be joint 2nd, separated only by draws/defeat ratio so a win is very important. Draw and we'll be nestled in between 2nd and the chasing pack albeit with a small margin ahead.
  7. Pretty sure New Years Day 2018 5-0 loss was a Monday- I remember it kicked off at 5.30pm due to some rule. We played 5.30pm on Saturday IIRC so couldn't play got 48 hrs ie Saturday 5.30pm, Monday 3pm not a goer.
  8. The club do read this site so doubtless they will be on the lookout and even more so now.
  9. Follow on (not seen the score since tea so dunno but am guessing) now looks highly unlikely but I wouldn't have been so sure- given the heat and humidity Tuesday- wear them down in the field in the hot sun and stick them in- if we're not bowled out due to a deteriorating pitch- for somewhere for maybe a tricky 8-10 overs at the end. Danger when its hot is bowlers run ragged, run ragged in the field then it's your side who has that tricky 8-10 overs at the end and maybe a collapse- pitches don't often deteriorate in the same way as the past but maybe it's different atm.
  10. Understand that- Fulham to me look in a lot better shape than Sunderland were though. Will look back at their 2017/18 side but it looked a mismatch, unhappy players, some aging- Grayson should at least have been able to stabilise them though. They maybe slow starters but I look at their squad, a fair bit of continuity and the fact it is stronger than the one that went up- and the fact that Parker has been preparing since his appointment as caretaker manager when a quick return looked likely for a return to Fulham's style that was so successful from late December 2017 to the playoff final. Dunno about stronger but certainly not a lot between IMO. https://www.transfermarkt.co.uk/sunderland-afc/startseite/verein/289?saison_id=2017 Was really nothing special tbh, looking at it! Was big and yet lacked depth, was aging in places and raw in others. Poor age profile, questionable quality, well taken as a whole as there were a number of good individuals there- I just don't see that with Fulham.
  11. Without presuming to speak for him. He's no longer SLO so dunno how much use his answers will be. Also unclear is whether the new SLO will be on here- don't know if they are yet. He (the new SLO) is though on Twitter. https://twitter.com/BristolCitySLO Am assuming the size of the allocation has not yet been decided/finalised/agreed.
  12. Could be okay Birmingham but don't see them as being near top 6. Adams a major hole, Jota their top creator- 11 assists, Morrison I think was their captain and of course the one who brought it all together Monk. Mahoney not necessarily replaced either.
  13. Agreed entirely- not a dark horse at all, baffled as to how they would be considered a dark horse. Could argue ourselves and Brentford given the summer business combined with a quiet window generally plus our last 2 seasons aren't really one either.
  14. Listening on the radio, sounds promising- a win would put us joint 2nd with Glamorgan- a full bonus point one would've been up to 2nd but given tomorrow will be hot best to try to strike early today, maybe try to be batting by tomorrow under the sun to set a major target.
