In defense of Frank from Holland I think he only gets on because too few people call up after the game which is a bit bizarre as we get around 20, 000 on average at home matches. I love the show incidentally and I think We should all be grateful for such a professional standard of broadcasting on what is after all a LOCAL radio station!
Graeme Mac works the engine room superbly back in the studio and Brenner Whooley is a wonderful commentator and will inevitably find himself on Five Live sport I Believe.
As for Mick Mills I am delighted he is continuing to do the supplementaries as he is an astute observeR of the game and just as when he played football his meticulous attention to detail ensures he is on the ball all the time. Great show. Great people and we should be thankful for every aspect of this top draw sports local sports show.
Greenwich Blue there are lots of places to watch the game but one of the nicest is The Blarney Stone on the Nieuwendijk. It is a n Irish bar with a nice atmosphere and they should have the sound on as usual. Failing that go to The globe off the Zijdijk or the Liedzerplein Sky Sports bar. there are also lots of place to watch the game on the Warmeostraat. I Work in Amsterdam but will be watching it at home via my Ziggo subscription.
It could have been a sell out if they had taken on board the idea I put in a blog over two years ago which was to raffle the remaining tickets at a fiver a time and call it the 50/50 Town draw - or perhaps less diplomatically The Ref Is A Tosser Competition!
The rules are simple you have a 50/50 chance of going to the game if you buy a ticket. The club would make money on the raffle too because half of the tickets would be non winners!
I am sure season ticket holders would not object so that those people who are blues fans but cannot afford to go get a chance to see the final home game on the cheap and pack the place out!
Now that is an idea I thought the club should at least reply to but I proposed it two years ago and more and I heard nothing back which is disappointing because I think Ian Milne would have at least replied if he had got wind of the idea.
Oh dear. Town were exceedingly poor and did not deserve even a draw from this low quality encounter and quite frankly McCarthy should be ashamed of himself for playing football like an Italian side that lacked the guile and indeed the intelligence to see out a win.Big boot hoof ball negativity won the day.
They have all exceptionally well this season and as Mick McCarthy has said they could all do with a bit of a break. Go out all of you and drink yourself silly and we'll see back on the training ground next Monday. I like that.
I know where you are coming from on this but that point I was trying to make was that we have lost so many points in the past to teams that we have been expecting to beat that it would perhaps not destroy our confidence too much if we were to drop the odd point against a team that is considered to be our equal.
