I can empathise with Britt on levels not many can..  I myself missed a penalty (actually two) at the Riverside whilst representing St Patrick's RC Comprehensive School where I blazed it over the bar. For years after my dad referred to me as 'row Z' and I haven't taken a penalty since (excluding 5 a-side).

 

What I'm getting at is Britt needs an arm round him and not my dad being a big old meanie

 

I still remember the level of shame you brought on the school

 

I can only apologise.. Mr Benfield never looked me in the eye again after that moment

 

"Row Z" - I like that, your dad sounds funny.

 

I think it's clear that you let everyone down though - just like Britt.

 

At least we still won mind.

I find myself being slightly optimistic about tomorrow.

 

Snap out of it man!

 

May I ask why?

 

Well, I'm optimistic that we'll only lose 2-0.

 

We are going to wine man. And it will be convincing.

You can't argue with a convincing wine  :upside_down:

Anyway the serious answer is a combination of things I suppose.  I think we could see two sides adopting a similar approach and I wonder if that may suit us a bit.  We may actually be a more dangerous side away from home at the moment so that may suit us as well.  I did think we'd beat Sheff Wed and win more comfortably against Reading than we did so I'm not sure my opinion is worth much but yeah I reckon we'll get something tomorrow, maybe even all three points.

Well game day and have to admit looking forward to the game, was going to do this by train but they have a bus replacement service between Newport and Cardiff so will have to pay for the privilege of driving into Wales

The ground is right next to an out of town shopping outlet but I'm not sure how long you can park there or whether they limit the time on match day.

 

A five minute walk away there are a couple of pay and display car parks in Canton also around this area there are plenty of residential streets which fans use

Watch out for the private parking companies! I bet they'll have a field day on match days.

 

Think today's going to be a draw. We've got decent away form. 1-1 with traore getting the equaliser

    • Just looking at the actual comments made by BD, a couple of things come to mind. For one, the comment BD responded to was the one suggesting we go to the foreign market to buy players, not them. Secondly, BD has said it wasn't personal, that it could have been phrased better and I guess that's up to you whether you believe that or not but it's worth remembering that whilst they demonstrate excellent English skills, they aren't English and perhaps it would be mindful to think about that before jumping on them. Finally, BD is right, people do make comments like DR said. To look at the European market where better, cheaper transfers can be found, DR isn't alone in that. A lot of people do and have done even in the years following the original vote. That will be people all across the ~50/50, of course and it stands to reason there will be plenty of people annoyed by the fact 'we' voted that way not just for, but inclusive of the way we wanted our football club to be run. But ultimately BD is right that it is at the very least naïve to think we can operate in that market the way others have done in the past. We'll see how the laws around work permits change from here on but we left the EU and lost the freedom of movement and that inevitably brought challenges to recruitment, not just in the football industry. If you remember the time around the vote itself, immigration was a bloody huge topic so I'd be surprised if it changed that much. After all, why should footballers be any different? There are arguments for and against the long-term effects too, perhaps the development of players in this country can improve with a league less saturated by foreign talent. But opportunity isn't the only thing that drives the collective improvement of football, even at our level. There can surely be no doubt that the influence of foreign, especially European players and coaches has been felt in English football. Previous to us leaving, that was just less chance of us bringing those people to the Championship and lower levels. It feels like that gap to talent is only getting made bigger between the top level and below with these changes in the long-term. The best teams will still be able to justify bringing the best players and coaches in, we might less capable.
    • With puns like that you should emulate Ukraine's no. 25....  Positively Netherlands 13 :)..     good end to end game..  Ukrainian keeper MOTM  
    • borodanes point on Brexit is stating fact - get over it people - you voted for it! As for previous signings Woody seems to have done ok but was hounded out by the keyboard warriors who are better than him . Similar to Mogga really but ..... As for the “uninspiring” potential signings perhaps someone wants to Chuck a few million to Gibbo so that he can sign a world beater or two ...thought not! the World is in a bad place and my only hope is that there is a Boro in 12/24 months time as there will be teams that go under. If we offer x and a player wants y then we say thanks but no thanks and move on. If that means a Wyke or a Smith is wearing the shirt then I am fine with that
