"lads are never going to play 60 games"
at 07:52 12 Nov 2019

My recollection of the play-off seasons was that we often started poorly, but really kicked on strongly from Nov onwards. As you say though, running out of steam right at the end.

If GB is not to be regarded as a winner, which I disagree with, then what about SBR? Surely history shows us as a serial bridesmaid during the 70's.

1981. FA Cup 3rd round we beat Villa, come the end of the season we lose in the cup semi final and Villa win the league. Who wouldn't swap a 3rd round exit that season for a League title and UEFA cup double?

Sorry to those of you that were around in 1978, but the FA Cup is pointless...

Match of the Day website running a story today of how a non-league club could eliminate the 2008 cup winners.

Who actually recalls the team who won the FA Cup in 2008? It's hard enough to recall who won this year's pointless final. Oh wait, it was Man City giving Watford an absolute hammering. Bet Watford fans enjoyed that cup run.

Back when we won the FA Cup, it was a prestigious competition, and fans could name most winners from each year in the 70's and 80's.

The only people who are about the FA Cup these days are the BBC, who try and hype it up so much you'd thing it was the Champions League

Does this count as a whoosh? The OP says, quite rightly, that we have no chance of winning the FA Cup.

If you crave an FA Cup run so much go and support one of the top 6

Agree, but what is the schedule like around round 2? We'll have yet another game to fit in when Oxford gets called off

Pre-season friendly maybe rather than a reserve game - keep squad players ticking over

Winning a FA Cup fixture - overrated these days i'm afraid.

I would actually prioritise the EFL trophy over the FA Cup. At least we have a good chance of going to Wembley

And yes, I did watch the 78 cup final back in the days when the FA Cup was important

Sounds good to me. There may not be another league game on the horizon, but what about when the second round of the cup comes along? Would not be bothered if we went out of the cup Saturday, and if it's a 'weakened' team then it shouldn't effect morale

Angus Gunn even got fantasy points for the number of saves he made - 6, what with the 9 goals conceded he ended up level at zero points

One thing that that does differ from county to county is the cost of the speed awareness course. Asked to attend a course and compared Suffolk to Essex location, Essex was about £10-£20 more expensive

Wolfenden? Or considered too young? A Wolfenden/Wilson/Chambers partial rotation seems fair

Err, f*ck the FA Cup might be a good idea?

We've enough league games to be rearranged already, with more to come whenever international games come around.

Plus it looks like we're making a serious run of going for the Piss Pot Trophy this season already

Could do without an extra 2 FA Cup games, round 2 and then defeat at round 3

In general I support your post, but not point 3. Good comedy is good comedy no matter how old it is - the fact that most people know the origin of the phrase indicates it's status in pop culture

Bertschin had a decent scoring record in the reserves, then scored on his debut i think. It briefly looked like he would be the natural predecessor

Brazil had a tremendous scoring record in the reserves, and obviously carried that on into the first team, but once he left us he never reached those scoring heights again

Was it all part of SBRs plan to replace Johnson with Mariner? My recollection is that Keith Bertschin broke into the team after Johnson left and started the next season. Didn't really work out and we signed Mariner in October

Defence is probably their strongest section.

de Gea, Shaw, Wan Bissaka, Maguire, Tuanzebe - that's not the problem

Outing?
at 17:29 20 Sep 2019

Well that’s my point, it’s obviously not a secret but does that mean he’s ok with it being office knowledge?

He’s not flamboyant in a way that would make his sexuality obvious, in which case he really wouldn’t care

Outing?
at 13:17 20 Sep 2019

Is there such a thing as an outing not being an outing in these millenial days?

At work yesterday I approached a small work bench where a female and male were talking. The female then said to the male 'i saw your boyfriend the other day'.

I thought, wow she's completely outed him in front of me.

It was no surprise, and maybe the guy often attends pub gatherings with said boyfriend and it's no secret.

So was this an outing or not? It was news to me, but i've not worked there that long. She could quite easily have said 'I saw Mike the other day', or do millenials not care about such trivialities?

As a footnote, the guy didn't say anything and the two moved on.

Old Ipswich VHS
at 09:17 14 Sep 2019

I finally got round to converting some of my Ipswich VHS tapes to DVD.

The full 78 Cup Final
Boys of 81
Match of the 70s

I was then going to throw out the VHS tapes now i've transferred them. But if anyone wants them then PM me. I'm Ipswich based

The VHS conversion works quite well, watched Match of the 70s last night and it's really interesting to see the team evolve. 90 minutes that starts with Beattie's debut in 72 up to the 6-0 against Man U in 1980
