Strange half: terrible at times, could have scored 5 or 6
at 20:00 2 Mar 2021

Deservedly ahead now though. Thought we were unsettled by their pressing - reminiscent of Rotherham last season - but better when we found space. The sending off helped that (poor tackle, not close to the ball, think it was justified) but still took us a while to get going.

Norwood frustrates, he could have had four that half easily but he will still score goals.

Need to add a couple more rather than try and see this out - their long ball stuff will be just as effective with ten as 11.

Gary Roberts best game for Town

Was this one:



He was superb that day, looked an absolute bargain. Didn't quite do it consistently at Championship level but had a very good career below that.

Always good to see how former players are doing.

The Robson quotes, just confirm what we already knew but still nice to see.

Still, quite staggering behaviour from a restaurant chain. Hopefully the staff can find a more respectable employer once places open up later this year.

Good win Town
at 16:54 27 Feb 2021

Doncaster had a lot of possession, not that many decent chances.

The season is back alive, even more so if PL is out the door this week.

Guardian piece on Derby
at 13:01 25 Feb 2021

And their impending financial issues.

https://www.theguardian.com/football/2021/feb/25/derby-takeover-silence-and-moun

"an accounting miracle appearing to take place in the East Midlands a few months after the 2019 defeat by Aston Villa at Wembley. Derby announced that for the financial year ending June 2019 they had made an operating profit of £14.6m.

It emerged that – much to the chagrin of fellow EFL clubs – the club had sold Pride Park to Morris for a reported £80m and leased the property back from him for £40m."

Balls, etc....

Cardiff away at plucky little Bournemouth tonight, easy one to know which team to support there.

That's a great win Town
at 20:59 23 Feb 2021

Yeah, wider context and all that but that was bloody brilliant. Norwood was excellent, Parrott not far behind and the defence solid (almost) throughout.

Far too late for Lambert now but a performance to ask what might have been.

Good half Town
at 19:50 23 Feb 2021

Built on the better stuff from Saturday but actually managed a goal, might have been more with better composure from Parrott and Bennetts around the box. Norwood, fit and motivated, makes a difference at this level.

Hull have created less than Northampton but still should have scored after some dodgy defending from Andre and Too's stupid tackle of the day was fortunately outside the area.

We faded Saturday as the front three tired and we couldn't replace like with like. It's quite possible we could do the same tonight, especially given Jackson's exile.

Still, COYFB.
