|Well now...isn’t that nice.|

It all sounded pretty soporific but we hung in there and got the monkey off our back in cup competition, a smidgin of revenge for 2017 and Judge is now off and running.
It’s a good night - have a drink and enjoy a slice of long forgotten footballing pleasure.
Thanks Paul, thanks Alan, thanks lads.
|Our 94/95 side was one of the worst in Premier League history BUT|
at 09:49 26 Oct 2019
to put what happened to Southampton into context, the heaviest home defeats that we suffered in 94-95 were 3-0 in the League Cup against Bolton and a trio of 3-1 losses to Blackburn (Sutton/Shearer era), Tottenham (Klinsmann/Sheringham/Anderson/Popescu/Barmby era) and Liverpool (Rush/Fowler/Barnes/McManaman).
Their defeat must be the heaviest home defeat since the 1950s?

|New manager bounce for Southend on Saturday too?|
at 22:16 23 Oct 2019
Campbell had a watching brief yesterday and Southend had two players sent off. He’ll have had a few days to pull them together and fire them up, while also pointing out our last two results.
We need a response on Saturday. Lambert should pick the strongest possible team especially given that we won’t be playing again for 10 days after Saturday.

Poor all round on the first goal. As for the penalty, I thought Nsiala was a little unlucky. Kind of challenge which goes un-noticed more often than not.
|I’m afraid I had a look at TalkNorwichCity’s video of their match yesterday|

I know it’s tempting to fate, but it had to be done. One glorious moment in it where Chris Reeve was convinced that Norwich were going to win because Villa’s Line-Up would include Tyrone Mings. He sneeringly compared Mings to Ben Godfrey (25 million to £750,000), “Bournemouth really mugged them off, didn’t they? Terrible...”
He was not a happy bunny by the end. 😀
In the interests of fairness, I watched their Man City video too. They seemed to have the world at their feet after that. What a shame that they can’t defend for their lives...
|You read Joey Barton’s comments about our squad and think|

You’re lucky to be able to see them from a dugout, Joey. You should be following the game from a prison cell after your behaviour at Barnsley last season.
Hope Lambert sticks the quote up on the wall and we ram the words down his pseudo-intellectual, thuggish throat.

Danny Haynes scores in stoppage time in to save a point in December 2005, “You lucky, lucky bastards.”
For all that, I’ll take a Paul Lambert side that finishes games like Norwich did between 2009-11.
|Thank feck for that|

Now let’s chase 6 points from these next 2 games.
|A little proportion is needed|
at 11:10 14 Aug 2019
I didn’t want us to lose last night, but I think that the selection was for the most part sound. Huws, Edwards and Nolan are going to be important players for us this season and it was right to use the game to feed them back in. Dobra could, in time, become the player that Teddy Bishop’s health stops him from being. We will have a number of players coming back on Saturday who would be first choice on 99% of the board’s team selections. There is a real chance of a positive result on Saturday and that’s followed by a run of games in which we will start as favourites.
Let’s see the team build up its momentum through to the end of September and put yesterday out of our minds. In the context of where we are as a club, the players we can call on and our aims for the season, it really isn’t as valuable to us as taking, say, 10 points from our next 4 league games would be. Those are the targets we should be demanding of the team.
