I would like to draw your attention to a new pop up food venue called Biff’s Jack Shack. Essentially it’s vegan junk food. I’m a meat eater but I have to say this place is out of this world. Given some of your posts in your pre vegan days I get the impression it might be up your street.
|Is anyone openly gay on here? |

Might sound like an odd question to throw out there of a Friday afternoon but spent my lunch break at work having the debate with a colleague about the lack of gay footballers that are out. I'm of the opinion that they're in an environment that doesn't lend itself to them coming out, where as he is adamant there's a disproportionately low number of homosexual footballers, for reasons he couldn't really explain. Said they would gravitate to other careers, which is why he believes it transcends to the stands too. I'm not sure about that, but of the 3 gay people I know, none have any interest in football.

Is it time to stop kidding myself that he's going to get fit and play a key role in our side?

Just looked at the fuxture list. Crikey. Can't see us getting any more than 12 points from these next 10 unfortunately. That would leave us on 33 points at the half way mark, a run rate that would have us about 10th come the end of the season. Feels about right.

Be beating Burton tomorrow.
That is all.

Not sure why I'm asking you clowns but here we go...
I've got (had) a nice 3 piece suit I was hoping to wear but I've misplaced the waistcoat (drunkenly left it at a wedding venue / hotel I imagine). It's my favourite suit so I'm still keen to wear it tomorrow, the question is is it acceptable to wear a non matching waistcoat? it's a slightly darker shade of blue to the rest of the suit. Or will I look like a chopper? I'm thinking maybe I just wear the suit as a 2 piece.

Garlic bread that isn't sufficiently cooked through to melt the garlic butter fully. Reminded myself tonight why I never buy garlic bread sticks anymore, in favour of the ciabatta or pizza breads. Made worse by the fact I had already served up my veg chilli and asked my guests (fiancé and her brother) to be seated while it went back in the over. Absolutely livid. It's a good job I don't like the boring little veggie tosser.

Dominic Iorfa @ 50/1
Got to be worth a nibble?

I'm not at all comfortable with Kenclock - Knudsen - Spence - Iorfa as a back 4. If we are going with those 4 then I would much rather see Iorfa inside and Spence at right back. Perhaps compromises our atttacking threat down the right but Iorfa is in my opinion a much more accomplished defender and Knudsen would need that next to him in Chambers' absence. Also, Knudsen playing centrally in a 2 is very different to a 3, so I would think we would have to revert to 5 at the back with Ward at RWB and Knudsen - Iorfa - Spence centrally which feels more balanced but then who are our central 3 in midfield? Skuse and who else? McGoldrick maybe. Maybe Downes if he's fit. Garner and Waggy up top.
Personally I say let's keep the shape we had on Tuesday and throw young Woolfy in. Cometh the hour cometh the man. 4-4-2 with Knudsen left back, Wolfy and Iorfa centrally and Spence right back. Waggy, Skuse, Ward, Sears in midfield and Garner and McGoldrick up front.

I thought he was dog sh1t last night. Felt the back 4 were really exposed and he was part of the problem. With the ball he was poor too, gave it away a few too many times and conceded a completely lazy and needless free kick from which they scored their 3rd.
On a more positive not Waghorn and Garner were great. So much energy and wonderful work rate. They're proper grafters on the pitch and exactly what's required at this level and what we've been missing for a while. As for McGoldrick, pure class. I love watching him play football.
Millwall looked hideous defensively. Not sure if we made them look bad or they're genuinely that terrible. Perhaps a bit of both, but I can't see them staying up if they play like that too often. Their right sided centre half was a disaster. Championship, you're having a laugh.
at 23:06 15 Aug 2017
Everything about it, just ridiculous. The energy from Waggy and Garner is outrageous, and McGoldricks quality is exceptional. Sears and Ward put a real shift in too. To think we still have Huws, Adayemi and Bishop to add into that fold.
1 negative: Cole Skuse. Thanks but pack your bags mate, your time here is done. Bloody awful and gifting them that 3rd goal was unforgivable for a guy with his experience.
|Is it acceptable |

To be half cut already? That's what a half day, beer and a pub garden does. Glorious afternoon in London today it must be said, what an amazing city in this weather. As for the football, I'm not sure if it's the charlton friendly (which we should read naff all into given it was played at 50% by both sides) that's left a haunting SE London image but I'm fearing coming back down to earth with a bump tonight, especially with the injuries we've got.
That said, we're normally better when we aren't spoilt for riches and have to dig in a bit. We need big performances from Skuse, Chambers, Ward tonight and something up front. I feel like we should be looking to beat teams like Millwall ordinarily, away or not. I can't see us getting much change away to sides like Sunderland and Boro so these are the away days where we should be maximising our return.
COYB let's take it to them tonight and if we go down we go down fighting and scrapping for every ball.

But as for tomorrow...where are we drinking pre match? Mate has suggested Bunch of Grapes?
Twitter tells me we've sold 1,400 tickets. With today's sales and walk ups we should be looking at closer to 1,600 I would think. Good effort, lets make some noise.

Just booked the train tickets for Palace home. Buzzing for a game under the lights at PR.

Who's going? I'll be making my first trip to Oakwell, it's a ground that's previously evaded me. I have a good feeling, there's a confidence and a feel good factor at the moment, along with a real step on in terms of depth of quality. Looking forward to seeing Celina in particular.
|What is / was for dinner tonight?|

I had a portion of delightful bolognesee that my fiancée made at the weekend. I couldn't be arsed to wait 25 minutes for wholemeal pasta so I whacked it on to a couple of slices of bread and butter instead. Wonderful decision.
