Brief U21s thoughts from tonight
at 21:48 22 Dec 2014

£10 to get in, what a f**king rip off for U21 footy - no wonder they didn't advertise the price in advance.

Alex Henshall looked very sharp, slow first 10 minutes but after that confidence was up and he was flying. Stewart drifted in and out and made some good contributions but Henshall was star man.

Sammon showed how a senior striker should look on these games and shows how far Bajner still needs to go, looked sharp and held the ball up well.

Centre halves really struggled against Colchesters front 2 of Healy and Szmodics, Healy off at half time but Szmodics was excellent - blotted his copybook with an awful challenge on Henshall though.

Good entertaining game in windy conditions though, we should have been too strong for Col U on paper but we're lucky to get all 3 points.
Ouch! Anyone watching North East derby?

Sickening sound as Taylor headed the post there
14 goals in 21 games for Murphy
at 12:30 21 Dec 2014

Unbelievable record
Since Bialkowski has come into the side....
at 10:59 21 Dec 2014

8 games, 6 wins, 5 clean sheets, 20 points.

I'm not saying he is purely responsible for this but I think he is our best permanent keeper since Kelvin Davis.....kicks excellently and commands box well.

I instantly regret it
Tyrone Mings' replacement?
at 20:34 16 Dec 2014

Morgan Fox, can't say I remember too much about him from our recent game - anyone have any assessment off him?
The Missing and The Fall **SPOILERS**
at 10:02 16 Dec 2014

2 excellent dramas from the BBC that both end this week. the Missing especially has been superbly produced, acted, written etc - I just hope it has a good ending tonight.

By good I don't necessarily mean happy, just a good one.

Anyone going to Youth Cup game on Thursday?
at 09:25 16 Dec 2014

Away at Colchester - £7 for adults is a bit pricey for a Youth game....but would be good to outnumber Col U in their own ground.
If ITFC were to fail FFP...

...with the rules around the embargo, we would be able to sign 7 players all on £12k a week and it not break the embargo.

You are allowed a squad of 24 players that are over 21 and have made more than 5 appearances for the club.

How many times this season have we faced sides in the Top 6?
at 10:19 14 Dec 2014

Feels like it is nearly every week at the moment!
Best home record vs best away record next week
at 19:24 13 Dec 2014

Should be a cracking game.
2 points dropped today
at 19:15 13 Dec 2014

A shame to not win today as we were so much better than them. Was so one sided and that was even with a few players nowhere near their best.

Keep playing like we have over the last few weeks we will go up, we look a seriously good side.

James Scowcroft Aged 21 on the Times football podcast this week.

I'm too young to really remember it, how bad was the abuse?
U21s report.

Gerken - couple of good saves, should have come for cross for 2nd goal

Emmanuel - quiet game but defended well
St Ledger - did ok but Clarke outperformed him
Clarke - solid and read the game very well
Wyatt - really impressive today, neat and tidy and defended well

Bishop - class act and a superbly taken goal
Benyu - better each week, star in the making
Henshall - too weak, scored but it was a hopelessly mishit cross
Stewart - looked very sharp, best I've seen him and hopefully he can kick on

Bajner - nowhere near up to it
McQueen - did nothing really, no change out of their centre halves

Was freezing though, but worth it to see Stewart play well.

Does anyone know what they will be for the semis as trying to organise a holiday....!
Brighton pass FFP for last season

I haven't shaved since the 6th September...
at 09:45 1 Dec 2014

...since then our record is Played 14, Won 8, Drawn 5 and Lost 1 - 29 points.

Now I don't want to take all the credit for our upsurge in form, as Mick deserves some.....but I am in the position where I am getting a lot of moaning from my wife about this - should the beard stay or go?!

As a bit of background, I didn't wash my hair from February of the season we went up via the play offs until after the Final so played a key part in that too. I had heard a clear urban myth that your hair starts washing itself after a few weeks - I was young and stupid.
