***IF***
at 14:52 13 Apr 2024

IF we go into the final day with a 0-0 draw suiting all parties, are there any rules preventing us and Huddersfield going full on "Schande von Gijon" and spending 90mins kicking the ball about the middle of the park?

I'm sure Coventry did similar against Exeter(?) a few seasons back, which ended up relegating Barnet.

Surely there are no rules against tactically not taking a single risk?

Very impressed by him tonight.

Would he be an upgrade on what we currently have?

Fixture congestion

Spare a thought for the run-ins of Truro and Gateshead.

Truro are having to fit 10 games into 20 days as a result of postponements, including having to play Saturday, Monday, Wednesday, Thursday, Saturday this week!

Gateshead have had a bit of a pile-up as well (not helped by last night's postponement), and most likely will have to play Thursday, Saturday, Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday for their run in.

Sports Direct missing out - my heart bleeds
at 15:20 9 Apr 2024

https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-68769820

TL;DR - Newcastle have agreed an exclusivity deal allowing JD Sports sole rights (outside of the club) to sell their kits next season. Sports Direct have kicked off as "if Newcastle fans were unable to buy their kits at Sports Direct then they wouldn't buy other goods there either and "may never come back", with people "losing faith in the credibility" of the store.".

My gut reaction is that it sucks to be them, but do any of the more learned folks on here know if SD actually have any sort of claim?

Moore starting
at 20:36 6 Apr 2024

I've seen a few mentions suggesting that KMc not starting Ali suggests that he doesn't trust him.

Could it not necessarily be that, but that the loan deal with Bournemouth stipulates that KM must start if available and fit?

More annoyed about Cardiff
at 14:57 6 Apr 2024

As galling as that was, I'm more annoyed about the Cardiff capitulation than today.

Whatever the respective league positions, it's always a tough game at Carrow Road. They could have been in Rotherham's position and still given us one hell of a game - it's just they way they and derbies are.

Cardiff hacks me off. Had we held on for the win there, today would have been much more of a free hit.

Morsy/Downes
at 21:29 1 Apr 2024

Two points from tonight:

Amazing self-discipline from Morsy in the second half, with Downes trying to goad him into lashing out and getting himself sent off.

Also, for me, Morsy's replacement was on the pitch tonight in the form of Downes. Niggly little twot, but precisely the kind of niggly little twot that we'd love if he was back at PR. Fairly tidy player now as well.

Investment rather than sale, no?
at 17:46 22 Mar 2024

Reading between the lines of the announcement, is Bright Path's involvement more or a case of them having invested and, as a result, ownership percentages being rejigged?

I get the concerns that there may be an element of the Arizona PSPRS cashing out some of their chips, but it doesn't read that way to me.

I assume there's a subtle but key difference if this is the case?

Blackpool - Easter weekend
at 17:22 14 Mar 2024

Hoping to make the trek up to Blackburn on Good Friday, and to turn it into a couple of nights away in Blackpool with the missus.

I get the feeling that, based on previous matches against Blackpool often having been at opportune times of the year, this isn't a trip that's necessarily unfamiliar to the TWTD crowd.

Any recommendations as to decent places to stay? We're hoping to find a decent small B&B or suchlike. A quick look at the appropriate websites suggests that there's still decent availability at good prices so close to the Easter weekend, so we're hopeful that the hive mind might help us unearth a gem!

Ramadan
at 13:11 10 Mar 2024

I see that Ramadan starts today, so I assume that Morsy and Al-Hamadi will most likely be observing the fast for the next month or so.

It got me thinking - having noticed over the last few weeks in paricular Sam praying before matches, and spotting both him and Ali giving thanks after the goals against Bristol in midweek, I'd love to see the club (assuming Sam is on board) maybe do a feature about Sam and his faith, given that it's so clearly such an integral part of his life and his career.

I think it would make for an interesting watch, particularly through the lens of Ramadan.

Proper test of mental resilience

The nature of today feels worryingly similar to the capitulation at Charlton last season.

A vital week to reset, and hope beyond hope that we've learned lessons since the 4-4.

Why did Cardiff sit back for 35mins?
at 14:17 9 Mar 2024

They've stopped their block since we took the lead, and are showing that they can make things interesting if they at least try and attack.

Very weird from a team that needs the 3pts at the moment.
