As if I wasn't disinterested enough in the Nations League.
at 19:48 11 Jun 2022

Then playing in front of a practically empty stadium has killed off any potential interest for me.

This is why I never understand teams stepping off the gas...

...when they have a game won. You never know when goal difference or even goals scored might be needed.

Am I the only one who actually enjoys seeing other teams going up?
at 21:27 3 May 2022

Not Norwich obviously and not when its directly at our expense, but once it is clear we aren't going up. I remember (vaguely) the joy of it all and enjoy knowing that there are people are experiencing the same. Don't know what it is. Perhaps the brotherhood of the football fan or to make up for not experiencing it for so long, but I'm genuinely pleased for Bournemouth fans. I hope they fully enjoy it and don't take it for granted.

And I hope that in a year, we too, can finally experience it for ourselves.

Champions of next season's Championship confirmed I see.

In readiness to replace Fulham coming down.

Farcical how predictable money has made football.

If tonight doesn't inspire this team I don't know what will.

The atmosphere for a match that meant nothing to us, over 21,000 present.

Can you imagine what the place would be like if we actually had something to cheer for?

So if we fail to win tomorrow, that's mathematically it.
at 17:34 15 Apr 2022

Even though it was clear we weren't going to make it to the play-offs, it would be slightly depressing to have it confirmed before Easter is even out.

Hopefully we'll have the title wrapped up by this time next year. I can but dream...

Lots of OTT reaction to the last couple of results.
at 23:32 9 Apr 2022

There are tweaks here and there needed, but the only major thing that needs changing is our finishing. The defence has been brilliant since McKenna has come in, but the pressure that they must be under when we can't turn dominance into goals must be immense.

If we're looking for players who can resolve this problem, we could do worse than look at the numerous players who have been able to score from the minimal number of chances against us this season whilst we seem to need dozens to get the same number of goals. I exaggerate of course, but today is a prime example.

In all seriousness though, I have confidence in McKenna and the team in place at the club to rectify this over the summer. Bring on next season!

Italy done an Ipswich.

32 shots and nothing to show for it.

Glad it's not just us.

This problem in front of goal is going to finish the season off.

Well, that and the dreadful start of the season.

Morsy Ban
at 18:16 25 Jan 2022

Annoying and frustrating, but this squad ought to be able to get by without him at this level.

Now is the time to show it. The best way to shove it down Accrington's throats (if that is what people want) is for us to get 10-12 points from the next few games and leave them for dust.

It is an opportunity for someone to step up and give McKenna options there so that we don't miss Morsy.

Reading Paul Mariner's My Rock and Roll Football Story
at 22:10 8 Jan 2022

Happened to be reading the chapter on the 1980-81 UEFA Cup campaign today and having read where he said Bobby Robson essentially reset the scoreline in the second leg of the tie, even if Town were 5-0 up, interesting to hear McKenna talking about winning the second half today, even though we were already 3-0 up.

As we know, too often we've got 2-0 up and thought the job was done and resorted to just holding onto our lead in recent years, so it is reassuring to think that KM and Sir Bobby are in any way similar in thinking on this sort of thing. No reason why we should stop at 3 and it was good to hear him say he wasn't happy with how we finished the first half.

Main differences this evening.
at 23:18 29 Dec 2021

Seemed much better organised.

A lot more effort to get to the second ball, win headers, etc.

Properly throwing themselves into defending.

Much, much better.

The new manager will need to be something special to turn this around.

About the only good to come out of this.
at 23:44 7 Dec 2021

Maybe tonight with the performance and the terrible scenes afterwards, things are so bad that the players will have been blown out of the lethargy that seems to have taken over in recent games.

And in the cold light of day, we as a fanbase have to unite and get behind the team on Saturday and beyond, especially if we have a new manager in place.
