they played nothing like a reserve side!!!!!


Come on Ronnie. It's no good picking on my little joke and poetic licence and ignoring the serious bits, is it?

Still waiting for this striker ( hairs and all that ) that will give us a chance of winning the title, or make the difference between making the playoffs and winning the playoffs.


I wouldn't say I was the best manager in the business. But I was in the top one.

They went out , knowing what they had to do , they had a game plan , they worked for each other . The manager gave them belief .
And ours did ?

looking back at our purple patch apart from the Torquay and Wrexham games, we have won games without looking anything special we was lucky to come away with a point last week so maybe our luck is starting to run out, I can't remember the last time I see town dominate a game, league champions not a chance playoff hopefuls maybe just.

We're second favourites to win the league with the bookies (that's every firm offering odds) and second favourites for promotion. Now I'm not rushing out and backing us but if at the start of the season someone offered me that we were second favourites at the end of November then I would have snapped their hand off. If you really think the bookies are wrong (which seems a bit weird as you are a supporter) then I suggest you lay us.

I wonder how many bookies had Southampton to be 2nd and Liverpool 11th in the Prem. They are not infallible, in the end they just have opinions same as us.

The difference is most bookies still have Liverpool as more likely to finish in the top 4 than Southampton (or did last time I looked a couple of weeks ago). So they are basically saying Southampton are in a false position. Whereas with us they are not.

Would not have made a difference today, it was the defence that let us down unfortunately

Why didn't you ask that very same question of Hagrid?

Maybe because the other poster called him a clown, ( and he is a moderator )
