Some news on the pitch coming tomorrow apparently
at 13:54 31 Mar 2015

So, are we going for the cheap option or the replacement that is clearly needed? It's been awful this season compared to what we have become used to.




Or will it be dependent on promotion?

A couple of interesting stories on the 'On this day' page

A mere decade ago we were trying to sign some Irish youngster:


Cash Key to Murphy Move 31st Mar 2005 14:32
Boss Joe Royle has confirmed that Town are keen to sign Waterford United striker Daryl Murphy, if the money is available in the summer. Murphy impressed the Portman Road management in his second trial spell earlier this week. 0



And this was 14 years ago:


Town Fans Praised Again 31st Mar 2001 18:36

Anyone else watch any of Fleetwood - Preston yesterday?
at 13:26 30 Mar 2015

It was on when I was in the gym but there was this absolutely superb goal from Fleetwood's David Ball.

Also, a nasty looking head injury to a Preston defender but, fortunately, he is recovering.

Chaplow and Varney
at 10:57 26 Mar 2015

Confirming both of these players here until after the play-offs makes this a good loan deadline day for us. Neither is very flashy but both are good Championship players and, with increasing match fitness, are showing their worth for the run in.

I would still love another ball-carrying midfielder but, as that doesn't look like happening, I hope Connolly gets a look in - just to give us a different option if we need it.

name the player from his career history:

Some fairly easy ones, some depend on knowing European football but still not sure quite how I managed 12 out of 15.

Anyone watching the cricket?

NZ - SA is very close. NZ need 29 off 18 balls so should do it but pressure is on.

That's exactly why we all bother. An excellent performance, back like before Christmas, lots of hard work and a little bit of luck.

Absolutely loved it. Get anything against Bournemouth and top six is ours to lose

I've only skimmed it so far but it's an interesting argument; would be useful if the graphic did go all the way back to 95 though.

Sears really didn't look confident with that chance, which is odd given his recent form and a lovely driving run from Mings.

Just seen that he scored again last night, that's three in the last three for Coventry. I wonder how much Mogga will get out of him. I suspect consistency will always be a problem but nice to see him do well.

Right, off to PR now

Whatever anyone's frustrations with MM, or his team selection, the best way to get over all that is with a win and that's a little easier if the crowd are patient and support the team.

The season is hanging by a thread but isn't over yet. I think we'll win tonight, maybe unconvincingly but people can then spend the rest of the week asking about trains to and pubs in Watford.
