  1. Safe Standing Survey Results

    Still shocks me that the only argument people have against safe standing is a fundamental misunderstanding of what it is. The club may well be opposed at this moment due to financial costs of installing it as I presume that will require expensive changes at our ground to solidify the foundations, but any other argument or mention of Hillsborough is just wrong.
  2. Kasper Schmeichel

    This evening proved for me why first choice keepers outside the top clubs should always be playing cup fixtures with absolutely no exception. Schmeichel makes a good save and hopefully will have removed the Man City game from his head. As much as I agree with a lot of the criticism on here after the weekend we need our best goalkeeper (which he is) to be in the best form possible, I've been annoyed at the fact he hasn't been able to do this earlier this season - playing games and winning with clean sheets helps us Imo.
  3. While I understand some people can't stand for the entire game I'd be on the side of I couldn't sit for 45 minutes, its the way I am. If we got near the goal I'd stand up it's just natural which I'm sure would be even more annoying for those around me. It does build yet another argument for safe standing, allowing away ends to safely segregate in to people who want to sit and those who want to stand. One thing I would say though is how much I hate people that are desperate to cling on to their seats. Millwall away last year our whole end was stood, I was front row of the top tier, didn't intend on sitting but the man behind me (rudely) told me to sit down, at which point I asked if he would like to switch seats as those behind him were stood. Literally one row forward and he refused to do it and threatened to call stewards, luckily for me a group of people a few rows back saw what was going on and called us to join them on their row
  4. FA cup 5th round sweepstake.

    Cov away would be incredible Kind of want Millwall away to bury some demons (and for those of us based in London)
  5. Next up.. Peterborough.. (A) F A cup.

    I'm going to be fuming when we make 7 changes to a winning side, and inevitably play terrible ending our hopes of silverware this year
  6. Fans who don't celebrate

    Then when it feels like it should have been good the camera cuts straight in to the players (thinking Stoke away last year)
  7. Watford (H) Match Thread

    Best site for a stream today? Mine have been lagging/cutting out
  8. Kompany has done a dissertation on this, would love to read the full thing. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-42574469 I genuinely believe there will be a drop in ticket prices/move towards safe standing in the near future as TV producers will realise a massive part of their product is atmosphere and what that does to games.
  9. Riyad Mahrez - The great Artist

    Mahrez looked like the most talented player on the pitch yesterday (confirmed with 2 Man United fans I spoke to after who said they'd happily bid 80m in Jan - but we should accept 30 shouldn't we!!)
  10. Watford (A) pre-match

    Anything but Chilwell or Fuchs at RB - can't have one of two very left footed players playing a position where you need a right foot. Would strongly consider playing King instead of Iborra. king did well at Southampton and Iborra has been awful vs Man City and Utd, looks tired and could do with a rest before Liverpool
  11. Kasper taking the piss

    Completely agree with you re no wall from a distance and the need for a change in approach. With the quality of players now a free kick is possible to get over the wall at pace and dip giving the keeper next to no chance (as schmeichel had in my opinion last night). The idea of players jumping up on shoulders is actually quite a good - although this may create vulnerabilities to short passes around the wall. I think dropping a player in to the post works but only if used sparingly as otherwise teams will just commit a player to go infront of the keepers eyes as they'd be played onside. RE Schmeichel just 1 point - I've never seen him concede a free kick on HIS SIDE, which as a goalkeeper is rule number 1 of free kicks. Yes he didn't save it despite being a yard or so inside the post but nevertheless its a good free kick. There's only so much a. keeper can do and I'd rather have schmeichel who asks the player to show their ability in scoring a good free kick than someone like Gomes who commits to the side of the wall and ends up conceding on his post quite a lot.
  12. Man City League Cup 1-1 - lost 4-3 on pens

    I've heard a lot of hype about Dragovic (He should be starting ahead of Morgan etcetc) and last night was only the second time I'd seen him play - after which I saw a lot of people on twitter trying to claim this is why he should be starting ahead of Morgan? Was it just me that thought he was all over the place yesterday? And is it also just me that thinks Morgan has been extremely solid so far this year? Is it another case of a player that isn't playing getting a load of praise for no good reason while one that is playing gets slagged off
  14. Hamer the stand out WHYYYY, Man City team equally weak
