Back from the game, and well, i dont quite know what to say about that......

First things first..... last minute winners away from home in the cup are bloody epic, and I dont care who it was against, but moments like that are what football addicts out of us. Absolutely fan-bloody-tastic, the away end went mental.

More rationally, we look very at home at this level.

Defensively we are just a joke. Comical really. First half we played OK, we contained the expected rush early on, put our foot on the ball, played through it pretty comfortably, scored a couple of good goals and seemed to have it in the bag, easy street. It wasnt a particularly impressive performance, just comfortable

Second half, well, we got played off the park from 45-85 minutes. Totally outclassed. They scored two, could have easily been four or five. Just a total shambles of a football team, so, so fragile. Then, at 2-2, instead of crumbling away altogether, we suddenly stepped up about 20 gears, passed it quickly and incisively, nearly scored twice, then did score.

How important will that goal be? We will see. It felt like a big moment.

    • So I would guess you’ve heard already but just in case you haven’t, it sounds like we can soon expect “Beast from the East 3 - Happy Easter Neil Warnock”. https://www.google.co.uk/amp/s/www.joe.co.uk/amp/news/when-will-it-end-beast-from-the-east-mk-iii-bringing-white-easter-forecasters-warn-168549
    • I imagine the Serbia one with the Russia flag in the stripes will bring some controversy 
    • Puma really going the extra mile to make their jerseys something special for each team.    
    • I got accosted in Gunsan, South Korea by a Mormon. I listened to him politely and then he told me his name was 'Elder Trumpet'. I laughed heartily, directly in his face, wished him the best of luck and then crossed the road to get away from him. 
    • Well err yeah, he did get a little bit wayward towards the end there @snowychap  Tiger aside, I thought it was a good finish to a decent tournament. Shame  Stenson dropped off, but you could just tell Rory was back to being Rory.   I'm not 100% convinced he can't get 'fully' back, even if only for a couple of years @Michelsen  It's early days, but I don't think physicality is going to be the issue. I found this interview with Rory from Jan of this year and There's some interesting quotes from him. if his back holds up, I think it'll come down to whether can he mentally become the player he was again, rather than physically.  This was after a practice round with Woods back on Nov.    https://tinyurl.com/ybyyfa98  
    • They need to get rory in to it more, at the moment its the other 2 and him 
    • So how many teams are strapped or hampered by FFP right now, apart from us ?....open question?
    • I’d be amazed if we got as much as £8m for hogan - I’d say £4m more realistic .
    • Not so much fizzled but went OOB with his ball at 16 when he carted it left off the tee. Actually, I think his round hit the buffers when his tee shot on 14 came up short right after he'd just birdied three of the last four (and had shortened from 50/1 to 5/1).
