Russia Banned From 2022 World Cup
at 22:28 9 Dec 2019

Which is why I am reading now that FIFA are viewing the possibility of letting the Russians play.. but not as Russia. Reuters are reporting that this could happen and that FIFA are investigating their options if Russia, who would be allowed to participate in the 2022 Quals, actually made it to the Finals in Qatar. But, as you say, it is more about money than the sport. FIFA don't care about cheating, etc. The money is more important and Russia is a big market. I fully believe that they will find a way to play in the Finals, if they qualify.

Typical. Fulham get the luxury of the Saturday game instead of us and it has been picked for TV according to the offy.

Would I be correct that if you signed up for the Cup ticket then you get allocated a ticket automatically (and paid for) as it was with the League Cup?

Lambs to the slaughter - Derby match fred
at 07:07 30 Nov 2019

Who will be the lambs?

Having broken up at least two six-game slides before, time to wander in and place my head on the chopping block. We have shown our ability to get out quick, especially away from home, and score. Hopefully that will repeat itself and .. this time we will score a few more than just one.

I'm going for a heavily optimistic 3-2 win.

Amazing, London to Sydney, non-stop in only 19 hours
at 21:14 16 Nov 2019

Thanks. Took one on the flight and refuse to take more than one every 24 hours. Will take one tonight. It is strange that these are OTC in the US and most of Asia and yet you need a prescription in the UK and similarly in Oz. Whenever I go through Singapore I grab some extra at the chemist. The lady there told me to let it dissolve under the tongue which is a rather strange way to do it.

Amazing, London to Sydney, non-stop in only 19 hours
at 18:03 16 Nov 2019

I wish them luck getting over the jetlag. Heading east is the hardest to do. I just arrived in Sydney from London last night having tried to get my body clock the same by sleeping at certain times and eating similarly. I only got a few hours sleep this night and its just on 5am here now. I am rather sceptical at these so-called methods to overcome the jetlag and how do you get a full flight to do all the exercises, sleep, eat, etc? Every person has their own body clock problems.

Not sure I'd want to be in one plane for 19 hours, let alone the 17 from London to Perth. However, the fact that there is no stop could be an important part in overcoming the jetlag problem.

Centre Midfield
at 11:22 10 Nov 2019

I think you are right here, but more about the confidence. Remember that we have two "new" players in the back three. Strange that the original centre-back did something that I thought was quite poor at each of the kick-offs. The ball is played back to Hall and instead of opening his body up, he immediately passes it back to Cameron. You can see this is quite evident when you watch the game vid. On two occasions, and perhaps the third as well, Kane was totally free on his right. It was quite annoying watching it live.

It was a strange game for our wing midfielders who did get the ball quite often. Kane took a little while to get into the game, but when he did some of those crosses were superb and that is what we want with the likes of Hugill in there. In fact, during the second half I thought our main threat came from Kane more than Eze or Manning. I hope this has given his confidence a real boost and can help him turn it around and give us a much more balanced lineup. Kane really does play better with a three-defender lineup.

The centre midfield? Are they ball playing midfielders, ala Ale or Freeman? I rather doubt that, which is why I think we are going to see more balls sent into the channels for Chair, Wells and Hugill to work with and bring in Eze, Manning and Kane with a pass.

Argh!! Warburton...
at 11:09 10 Nov 2019

I thought the ref was quite reasonable yesterday. I wouldn't be surprised if Clive gave him at least a 7. The only concerns in that area were the throw-ins where the two (ref and assistant) had to guess and, on occasions, got it wrong. There were no serious mistakes, as compared to the players.

Also, when I was getting off the train near home there was a guy in a QPR jacket with his young son, perhaps 7 or so with a QPR shirt under his jacket. We had a quick chat and although his son is still to see a win in the three games he has been, he is enjoying it and wants to go to more games. Perhaps this, sort of, attractive open-play football is actually helping bring in more of the young fans of the future.

Set piece threat
at 09:21 10 Nov 2019

While we are all moaning about the defence it was good to see yet another great set piece goal from a corner with Hall scoring again although the officials gave it as an og. From my angle, and I said this before the ball even got to Hall, he was going to get a free header, such was the blocking and movement of the players to set up the goal.. and of course the delivery from Eze. As with the other goal against Brentford, there was not a defender within a yard of him. Been some time since we have had a goal threat from set plays. Something that has been worked on at training is paying off.

And don't forget our esteemed security at the game. What security you ask? Well, that is a darn good question when a random fan can jump the fence race over, hug Clint Hill, and then amble back to his seat in the Ellerslie. Eventually, security arrived a minute or so after he was back over the fence and after some coaxing, he was escorted from the ground. But really, how can someone do that?

Crown & Sceptre last night

I do agree with you that this is a R's pub thru and thru but it is also an open pub and the Millwall game was the only time they have forced people around the back and having to show membership or colours of the Rs.

Trouble is that the C&S will not stop anyone from coming in, if they behave. Why would they cut their own financial throats? Before the game, the place was jam packed, real jam packed. I wonder if this may have been their best day (before and after the game) in years.

Good result for Australian rugby. Now they can finally get rid of the worst coach in decades. Perhaps the ARU needs looking at as well.

Not from Scotland. But, I remember when I went to Leeds back in 2013 and was walking back from the ground to the station with someone who was living in Glasgow at the time. So, I'm guessing there are many who travel down for games from Glasgow, Edinburgh and the like.

Was considering this game as they are hosting Greenwich, who were my local team until they moved off east. A few buses to get there, but have been before. It's an FA Vase 1st Rd proper and should be an exciting game even though Greenwich have been on a downward slide since they changed ownership.

Good to see the Beeb putting some pics up. There are a number of Facebook pages devoted to non-league pics.
