Bowie at Glastonbury 2000.
at 19:45 29 Jun 2020

In '74 my sister sailed to New York on a huge liner from Southampton to work as an au pair. As luck would have it Bowie and his band sailed there to on the same ship and took some time out to play for the passengers. I always envy her those 5 days.

Yes, that took everyone by surprise. Wouldn't be surprised if Mings brought that about.

Further confirmation of how dire we've been. Presumably this hurts club funds a bit too.

The vultures have always been out there. Look at Brentford. They lose first teamers season after season but are fantastic at recruitment to replace them. We completely ballsed that up after MM left.

Well what's the end game? We all give up on the club ? Just let it die? PL is absolutely correct on one thing - the club needs the fans backing. Who knows when we will rise again? Wolves fans must have felt even worse when they were in div 4. Div 4!!! It seems unbelievable now. But they signed Steve Bull, he scored for fun all through the divisions and brought the good times back.

Valid thoughts of course but I'm amazed that there are quite a few here on TWTD who dont seem to have the Town in their hearts. They make the effort to come on here, presumably read through various threads then say they haven't missed football during the lockdown! Cant get my head around it personally.

Town not training! Surely PL cant be happy with the state of our crossing in matches for one thing. Get them out practicing for God's sake.

Hire a big Harley over there Quirkie for even more road trip. Need a full bike licence of course. Try and make the Rocky Mountain National Park above Denver too. A magical area.

To add to Radletts useful piece, the Town were the only club to not play any league or friendly matches for 6 years in WW2.

Def Millwall away '78. Scenes everywhere. Coins, bottles, cans flying at our fans in the side stand seats nearest Millwalls yobs end. Couldn't cheer any of our goals as their cops had directed us into that end! Georgie Burleys 30 yard never to be forgotten pile driver.

First thing the new manager should do is make Flynn Downes Captain

Chambers seems to have lost all belief that we can achieve anything. All the mistakes our players were making and he never had a go at anyone. Against Oxford it was Wolf who let Garbutt have it other barrels after he lost the ball that led to their goal. Chambers just walked back into position. This pathetic run has totally drained him.

The first half
at 22:19 3 Mar 2020

Agreed I've never seen such a completely disorganised Town team at PR as in that first half. They obviously hadn't trained together as a team. But what really annoys me is none of our attackers can win headers anywhere near enough against strong arm div 1 defenders. And no one can shoot from distance. It's just pathetic. How I miss Milton, Reuser, Peter Morris even.

Basically we have the poorest headerers amongst our forwards in probably the club's history. We have always had at least one who can consistently win aerial battles, now we have no-one and it's hurting us big-time. Crawford, even the very limited Mitch D'vray, Whymark, Mariner, Steve Whitton, Scowie, even David Johnson mark 2 who was about 5ft 6 but won loads of headers against much bigger defenders. The list goes on. Its a huge part of attacking play for all except the Man Citys of this world. Yesterday i just about gave up watching our crosses go into Oxfords box. You just knew a yellow shirt would win it. PL must see this. Sir Bobby would have putvsomeone like Wolfenden up front in the later stages. PL needs more balls, to get creative. We need a Steve Bull type c.f. He dragged Wolves up from div 4 and even got an England cap.

We can circulate to clubs that we are making them available and take it from there. Shape up or ship them out - Pep did it with Joe Hart. It might wake a few of them up even! I'm not happy to stand through atrocious first half hoof ball as on Tuesday night. Our standards must be raised somehow.
