    Cheltenham

    A comfortable victory this afternoon. Lang I thought was the standout performer and really should have scored more than the one he did. Good composure to set up Wyke when he must have been tempted to take the shot. Hopefully Whatmore isn’t too seriously injured as the lad is class and it’s...

    Derby County

    Didn’t hear the presser but have read some of the transcripts. If I didn’t know otherwise I’d have thought I was reading the one from ours last July. I felt a little reassured for a day or two thinking they had our interests at heart, despite knowing where their priorities lay. I suspect Derby...

    Derby County

    I see Gibson is continuing his efforts to sue Derby over their ffp breaches. It’s like picking over a carcass. Same with Wycombe threatening to jump on a similar bandwagon. It’s the efl they should be doing for dragging their feet over these issues. They already need to repay 60 odd million in...

    Sunderland at DW

    Exactly, tit for tat as some are getting worked up. As I said a little perspective from one or two is required.

    Sunderland at DW

    You’re critiquing the game and there’s no problem with that, but some are getting worked up because we lost and supposedly (I didn’t go) didn’t play well.

    Sunderland at DW

    It was touch and go whether we’d have a club 12 months. Yet we got a fabulous new owner, pulled off a miracle to stay up and now sit at the top of the league. Yet folk are getting worked up because we lost in the 4th round of the league with an effective reserve side. Jesus Christ, some folk...

    The government are trying their best in difficult circumstances

    You clearly don’t understand British society or the political system. Whilst I personally have no problem showing a certificate, it seems many in this country do and won’t comply. Given the opposition within his party, the cost of implementation, enforcement and the hinderance to business it was...

    The government are trying their best in difficult circumstances

    British society is not the type that easily agrees to suppressive measures - and that’s half the battle. Passports wouldn’t have been accepted and I suspect would have created problems and more unrest. The mask edict has now ended - and they are vaccinated, so no reason to continue wearing them...

    The government are trying their best in difficult circumstances

    Personally I’ve no issue with having to show covid certification. I think the government wanted to do similar but wasn’t politically feasible because of all the whinging and moaning. Likewise with continued mask wearing. Other than making covid passports mandatory then there is only so much a...

    Brexit's a memory/nightmare, but look what we've won/lost !

    Whether it’s brexit related or not is a matter of conjecture, but how joyous it is to see Macron losing his shit and embarrassing himself across the world by his petulant, childish response to the Aukus deal. Karma is a bitch as they say given his behaviour over our exit from the EU.

    The government are trying their best in difficult circumstances

    I’m not denying the factual nature of those stats, but they are misleading in the context of you text. It has nothing to do with the governments ability to vaccinate people - it’s because it seems we have a higher proportion of fuck wits in this country who refuse to have one.

    Sunderland at DW

    Couldn’t give a flying fuck about it personally. Play the bench players for minutes, supplemented with some youth team players. Like the pizza trophy it’s a distraction we don’t need.

    Accrington v LATICS

    I’ve said it before but there were times last year I thought we’d be liquidated. It was sad to think we’d never experience these type of days again. A fantastic day out at a club surviving and out performing themselves in the league pyramid. Made a change to be stood on a terrace, be so close to...

    Derby County

    The extra 9 included an additional 3 being suspended. Seems pointless agreeing to that they may as well take it now as they’ll be going down with a 21 point penalty - a 24 point one makes no difference. Completely devalues the league.

    Derby County

    This news has dredged up some unwelcome memories. Given their ongoing difficulties it’s not a total surprise but when it happened happened to us it was a shock as completely unexpected. Unsurprisingly our friends at the efl have been quick out of the blocks hitting them with a 12 point...
