I sit behind the goal towards the back and saw them (as I know others will have) - for those who weren’t sitting in the North and couldn’t see from the video. Collin looked humbled, Emmanuel and Toto just shellshocked. There was a moment before any of them knew if they should clap back or not, if it was apt. Jackson started it, then the others followed and the crowd intensified.
Lambert and his staff totally in awe, just standing watching. It was such a surreal moment. I’m so glad there weren’t any audible chants, any boos or Evan’s out shouts. It didn’t feel like the right time there - no one in the ground wanted this situation from a town perspective.
No smiles from the players or manager for obvious reasons, but Chambers looked in tears and Judge inconsolable. Brum players extremely respectful, almost immediately from the final whistle.
In the past we have had mercenaries playing for us who couldn’t care less what happened.
I don’t think any town fan, hand on heart, can say that any of our squad now wasn’t trying or didn’t want to win this season. We simply weren’t good enough. They’re still people though and I’m sure they needed that response at the end as much as we did.

Fair play Lee Camp - immediately picking up Bishop, hugging Judge.
Town players standing in seeming awe of the crowd. Very strange but the most positive a relegation could be.

I remember feeling quite emotional a few games back, despite not intending to be - it was just the feeling around the stadium of 1000’s of people suddenly feeling flat (late goal - can’t remember which one). Since then I’ve been fairly resigned to it, but I think when it actually happens, sharing it with so many people will be very difficult.
I imagine we will go down today, and it’ll be something that everyone there is yet to experience I assume (relegation to that level).
Still - I’m meeting Spruce today (and potentially 11 other logins *wink*) so every cloud!

Knowing how I am prone to hyperbole, I thought I’d listen again with fresh ears to Lambert’s interview this morning.
My thoughts (which no one asked for):
1) Something has definitely changed from the official club statement released by Marcus and Paul a month or so ago.
2) Lambert was very evasive - and seemed to be at pains to not lie.
3) He seemed put out - as if he does leave, it won’t be his choice (rumours of a takeover - salt pinched - may have disrupted things)
4) I know (albeit by my vey few, but credible sources from the club) that there was surprise at that interview.
Either way, I think the club needs to clarify it one way or another. It will damage season tickets, player contracts, signings..
The one thing holding it together at the moment is the feel good spirit.

Gamers of the board unite!
I need a new baby. Playing on PS4.
I’ve just completed Red Dead, so I’m looking for a new immersive world.
I’m a big fan of Fallout style and walking simulator games.
Any tips? There’s certain franchises I’ve never got into for no real reason - GTA, Farcry etc. Would either of those be worth it? Do I have to start from the beginning?

My filling has fallen out and I need a dentist quick, ideally for a full check up too - ideally NHS.
Haven’t been for 3 years...old dentist has retired.

But despite posting before that I thought we were down, today was the day it truly felt like it.
It’s like death by a thousand cuts now.
