Forum Thread So the England will lose the Ashes 5 - 0 at 19:03 12 Jul 2015 crowd, I said it would be a terrible bet :p The Aussies don't tend to handle the swinging bowl too well, Shane Watson being the prime example In Oz you can get away that technique but over here you get found out. If Starc's out that's a huge blow with Harris having retired also I still expect them to fight back strongly, not all our pitches will stifle them like Cardiff did
Forum Thread I thought Chaplow looked quite promising whilst here at 13:45 7 Jul 2015 particularly given the fact he was often stuck out on the wing, he should be a good player in League One You can only assume we have a decent central midfield signing lined up, one who can chip in with a few goals
Forum Thread The lad Fraser was excellent at FPR at 16:25 25 Jun 2015 Just the sort of winger we need I'll be sad to see Mings leave but for £8 million and two players coming this way, it's hard to argue with it
Forum Thread Understatement of the day: We really need to kick on next season at 20:26 25 May 2015 This is the season where we have to get it right MM has got everything in place, it's a few quality players which will complete the jigsaw Two good wingers, another midfielder, an actual right back and that would put us in a strong position next season If there's a time to back MM, it's now Marcus People expect us to be shelling out big bucks for players but remember it's wages which will do most of the work, not the transfer fees We need to be looking at quality over quality imho In Mick we trust
Forum Thread BBC Look East Bias on Twitter at 19:49 25 May 2015 wall to wall coverage of Norwich, they're even hashtagging #otbc 30 + Norwich City based Tweets on their wall 2 for Southend who also won promotion They seem to forget they cover the whole region Lot's of smugness from many reporters, showing their true colours Another reason to hate the Budgies imho
Forum Thread Plus side, I don't expect Boro to be a force next season at 19:28 25 May 2015 They won't have Bamford and they'll be very tight on FFP I suspect Their wage bill will be pretty high I should imagine with players like Ayala, Leadbitter, Friend, Clayton, Vossen, Keke and Adomah Boro have been exposed today as they have been against other sides including ourselves When a team keeps tight against them, they struggle to break them down. They're good once they have a lead and can counter but are by far the best side toe to toe imho Norwich strolled past them today, just as we did earlier in the season If you were a Boro fan today, you'd be gutted with that performance

Forum Thread From sackpardew.com at 11:33 24 May 2015 "We would like to take this opportunity to thank all of the fans who supported our cause and helped put the spotlight on Pardew. We believe that your support may have ultimately contributed to his departure and we hope it has helped demonstrate what fans can achieve if they combine their efforts towards challenging a club’s higher powers. In particular we owe gratitude to Print North East and the bars that participated in our Hull City protest. As promised, the remaining funds from our own contributions and your kind donations (£212) will be donated to charity, specifically North East volunteer group supporting the homeless Making Winter Warmer". They're not going to look so clever if they're relegated today
Forum Thread Will the UK ever win Eurovision again? at 22:35 23 May 2015 Not with the tripe we keep putting in We've entered two competent songs in the last decade It's approaching 20 years since we last won, pretty embarrassing for a country with our music industry I know Europe hates us but it's about time we enter a big act who are currently in vogue

Forum Thread That's how Portman Road should be all the time at 16:12 9 May 2015 Great atmosphere, shame we didn't have a bit more about us We needed to show a bit more composure at times, that gap has certainly closed though It's a shame we don't have Hyam to hunt Hoolahan down, he makes a huge difference to their game. They look like they're missing Grabban too!

Forum Thread If Ben Gummer wins Ipswich at 00:05 8 May 2015 I'm taking up politics so I can oust him On a side note, the Tories were warning us about the SNP and the Scots, if they do cling on to power, it's they who will be held to ransom by the DUP and Northern Ireland Now that's what I call irony! I'm sure the Lib Dems would jump at the chance to get into bed again?

Forum Thread A reduced capacity of 29k at 17:58 6 May 2015 I presume that's for restricted view seating and an extra area for the Police to congregate?
Forum Thread Surely the 85 League Cup Semi was the bigger game at 17:41 6 May 2015 Nationally even if there's more at stake in this one? I know it's only a minor trophy technically and the play-offs have become the most valuable prize in English football It should be fun either way, we've beaten better sides with worse sides, bring them on I say
Forum Thread Away ticket allocation at 08:28 4 May 2015 I see we've been given a measly 2k allocation at Nodge, I presume Nodge will be given a similar allocation Isn't there some rule where teams can get 15% allocation in the playoffs, West Ham had loads of fans a decade ago, they were in both sides of the Cobbald? I presume this doesn't happen for Derbies?
Forum Thread The Football League Show last night at 10:17 26 Apr 2015 Curbishley said the team you've got to worry about is Wolves given their form That's Wolves who are relying on both Derby and Brentford to feck it up :p When you're relying on other team's results, you're in big trouble imho, it's never a good place to be in
