Emperor's New clothes?
Or is it just me?
|Does anyone remember when Colin Viljoen chipped Gordon Banks?|

League Cup tie 1972.
Gordon Banks was a superb goalkeeper.
Ipswich were trying to get something out of this tie at Portman Road and bombarding the opposition goal with shots and headers. The ball eventually came out to Viljoen on the edge of the area who spotted that Banks was slightly off his line. His superb chipped shot crept in under the bar with Banks helplessly trying to reach it with his fingertips.
It wasn't enough though. Stoke won 2-1.
I think it probably stuck in my memory because it was Gordon banks. RIP.

I was going to renew the grandkids' memberships for Christmas.
That's not helping to encourage a new generation of Tractorboys and Tractorgirls is it?

..is that I have been thinking about these things for a good few years, and I think you'll find that I'm right and you are wrong.
You may come up with arguments to support your point of view, but I will come up with counter arguments that make my case.
This will lead you to make ever more strenuous attempts to make your case and you may well resort to name calling. I might join in, and retaliate in the same vein.
But at the end of the day it will make no difference.
I will be right, and you will be wrong.

...and although we lost there was a lot to be positive about. At least we were trying to play football, and I really don't think that Derby created many more chances than we did.
I always said I'd rather be entertained and lose than win playing unattractive football, so for me this is a huge improvement.
A win would be good of course, but it will soon come.
On to Sheffield.

...seems to be a word in daily use on here.
I cannot help thinking about those loveable characters from the Beezer comic of my childhood.
Makes "numbskull" a term of endearment rather than an insult!

Off to Cambridge for the weekend with the Mrs. Been before obvs, but not for a while. Any must do's and any recommended pubs for good ale and/or decent grub?
Fitzwilliam is on the agenda already.

More a collection of individuals, many of them only average players, most of whom did not want the ball.
The bad players were noticeable by their mistakes. The truly awful players were not even noticed.
