Well there's a lot to talk about today
at 18:11 14 Dec 2019

4-3-3 - that came out of the blue and I put down the two early gifts down to that, they were getting so much space in the wide areas.

Norwood out left - does he know how to play out there? I'm not sure and if he did he might have been back helping out on that side for the second goal.

Skues at right back, I know he's played there before but not for ever in a day. Did well defensively but offered not very much in those wide open spaces further forward.

Ineffective in front of goal again, as typified by Norwood heading against the bar from 2 foot out. If you gift your opponents two goals you need to be able to score more than one a game.

After we had given them the two goal lead we were, apart from finding it difficult to score, really very good, we played some decent football.

Was it a penalty, couldn't really see from where I was.

Jackson worked his socks off.

Would have liked to see Garbutt driving forward more in the secod half, like he did in the first.

The sending off was daft, that idiot should be ashamed of himself, facy coming back into play without the refs say so, and make it obvious by running on to pick up the ball that was coming towards him.

I actually enjoyed the game, but I am getting up of walking down the steps in the Sir Alf towards a happy away team and celebrating away supporters.

I've just noticed that Derby have signed Wayne Rooney as player-coach

Yellow rosette on a green dress. Intolerable.
Any Colchester folk on here know how stringent they are with bus lanes?
at 14:13 11 Dec 2019

I know that they are generally pretty tough on bus lane abuse and will send off fines for entering one. Does this apply in the wee small hours when there are no buses running.

I inadvertantly drove into one at 3:30am the other day and am expecting something through the door any day now, but what I my chances of getting away with it?
Lunchtime classic

I havent had one of these in ages; fish finger sandwich.

What is the embellishment du jour? Ketchup? Mayo? Both?
What did everyone make of the ref last night
at 11:30 11 Dec 2019

I thought he was alright, nice and low key. Missed one or two things, for both sides, but hey it's a tricky job.

I noticed that Woolfy kicked out at someone last night, some refs might have been tempted to send him off รก la Beckham vs Argentina, this ref spotted it and just had a quick word.
Could someone kindly introduce the midfield to the defence please.
at 22:08 10 Dec 2019

That was poor. Very, very poor.

Balls pumped aimlessly over the top.

The whole team were static.

Coventry showed how easy it was, they looked dangerous simply by passing the ball into the space in front of a moving player.

Still thank fvk it was the cup and not the league. Possibly a masterstoke by Lambert now one of our rivals is going to be involved in at least one extra long away day,

Anyone else seen this strange but brilliant film?


It is one man driving his car talking to people on the phone about a concrete pour whilst trying to handle some personal problems.

You only see Tom Hardy as the main character, alone in the car (after the opening). Everyone else is on the phone.

It is the oddest prospect for a movie that I have come across and yet it is superb.

Well worth a watch, I think it is on Amazon Prime, but might be Netflix.
Bristol Rovers or Plymouth then

Can't imagine PL busting a gut to get through to the third round.
Will there ever be a decent screen adaption of War Of The Worlds (n/t)

Up The Arse!

Lets hope they can frop Nodge further in it.
Nice that Football Focus were there at the moment of the goal.

Come on you blues.
Amazon Prime is showing a bunch of premier league games in December

For them that is interested in that sort of thing but dont so Sky or BT.

I might take the opportunity to watch Villa stuff the budgies.

SBR stand view of the penalty save

Which would you find the more frustrating 0-0 draw
at 16:35 27 Nov 2019

Something like last night?


Why is this not a 'shot on target'
at 15:25 27 Nov 2019

Edit: the time option does not seem to work in embedded videos. 54 seconds in, header cleared from just in front of te line.

For that matter there is also a shot at the end that is going goalwards but is blocked.

Begs the question what do they count as a shot on target?

Good point made on 'The Gasroom' regarding the international break
at 11:54 27 Nov 2019

"The match was originally called off for international call ups to Georgiou Downes, Judge, Dobra and Dozzell....none whom actually played a minute tonight."
