Anybody on here go last night? A very enjoyable evening I thought - drinking by the side of the pitch in a relaxed atmosphere.
I can't say I came away with too much knowledge about the players we had out there tbh. Got a nice 10 second video of our second goal by Kayden Harrack - he definitely connected with it.
Their No. 6 was enormous.
Oh one thing worth mentioning: they announced at the end that they'll be letting QPR season tickets holders in for half price all season.

Can anyone recommend the best/easiest way to sell tickets online these days?
I could sell them back to ticketbastard, or there's stub-hub I see.
I'm not averse to making a modest profit on them if that's an option (nothing gougey) but don't want to have to travel to hand them over. Nor do I wish to scuffle with angry touts and get a cigar jammed in my eye or similar close quarter injury.

Does anybody know if you walk in there are you able to buy a ticket without paying one or more of their fees?
I know some or most of this will be Ticketbastard's doing, but for one 35 quid ticket I've got a £4.40 service charge, a £1.75 facility charge and a £2.75 handling fee.
I also see the hilarious suggestion that if I want a 'classic paper souvenir ticket' I can give them another £2.95 and they'll post me it a week after the show.

Just wondering. First week back for me after 2 off and I've done everything but what I'm supposed to.
Just had a coffee to 'really get down to it' and ended up trying to photograph magpies from my window for the last half hour. Tricky buggers they are. Cleaned out the fridge, resolved a long standing light-bulb issue. A few other things.
This working from home farce has its advantages but I find when the work ethic falls off it really does fall off. Can be quite isolating and even guilt inducing. Will need to catch up like a bastard at some point very soon.

When Dominic Shimmin came to us in 2005 there was another Arsenal youth player who came with him. He was a left back, good physical presence bit of a unit - I remember him as having his hair shaved right down to the wood but that may not be accurate.
He ended up going to Harrow Borough for a handful of games and then drifting out of the game - said he had 'car trouble' believe it or not.
Does anyone remember his name?
(On a side note I still can't believe Shimmin didn't make it in the game.)

3 or 4 contenders but I'd give it to Stef for last night - the passing seemed back and he showed more energy than of late (Hunter, you will have a view mate I'm sure!).
4 or 5 really good balls forward, closing down the keeper in the latter stages, giving good advice to Dozzell about when to go for it - good all round game. Really hope that injury isn't much - his body language seemed ok I thought as he was going off. Very encouraging for him to be coming back into form now.
Jimmy D would be another for me - won everything and very composed - amazing how quickly he's made that position his own.

I had a good non-sexual stare at him last night from about 15 feet, and I'm not actually sure he is as porked up as I previously thought. Obviously he's no spring chicken.
I'm more wondering if he's still just a bit out of sorts mentally. It looked like Blackburn had a theory that he might be easy to get at - that cuff to the head he got was ridiculous not to have drawn a card - the fcuking lino was right there. Anyway.

They just had quite a good piece during the marathon coverage on the Foundation. Great explanation of the work.
I thought Mark was brilliant in the interview - spoke so well - very proud for us to be associated with the man.
They even managed to make the stadium look quite smart from the aerial shots which was quite some feat of cinematography.

Thought he looked very promising today - like he'd been in that position for us for far more than a few weeks. Good awareness, making space for himself, excellent passing. Even I could see it.
Odubajo was quality too in a similar way. And he had another gear if needed. His obvious joy at the goal was great to see in a ground that's been so dormant for so long. Actually that was the main thing I felt siting there tbh - cannot believe what we've all been through, many worse than others.

Seems they've come out second half more determined to show him their 'liyalty'.
Quite like these two ITV commentators too, whoever they are - nicely engaged and informative and their voices aren't naturally annoying.

Beating them like that. I've woken up this morning feeling like I need another hit.

I know - Get. In. The fcuking. Sea.
Is anyone attempting it though? I'm amazed to say I am - am on Day 5. (Couple of days short but wasn't going to start on a weekend ffs...)
Combination of reasons really: I need to drop a stone and give my stomach lining a bit of a rest. Was also finding that my tolerance was getting to an unmanageable level and can't be bothered getting into crack. Decided to try something different.
So the plan is for 4 weeks of general clean living and self improvement. Fcuuuuuk.

Bit of a headscratcher, except for the defence where I wouldn't expect too many changes.
He may well play Cameron, and I'd love to find a way to get Carroll involved. Big Lyndon may be a bit knackered but think he'll push hard to start.
That still leaves Thomas, Willock and Bonne as options, which is nice.

Not said lightly but I think Dieng is going to be better than Smithies for us.
Love Smithers to bits but Dieng makes up for any potential technical inadequacies that he may still be developing with his terrifying physical presence.
When he comes out to claim it's like he's one and a half sizes bigger than everyone else.
We'll see I know.

I think there may be an argument for what we might have previously referred to as level head-ed-ness. Something from the 2012 Olympics possibly. Anyway:
Even if I was to assume that Warbs Warburwarb has spent his time wandering round Europe on his share dividends failing in his overclocked giant mind to understand that the only reason most of those well oiled, highly financed, teams clicked like a Swiss watch is because their two centre halfs cost 190m euros a pair...
Point is maybe it's not the time to get into that. We're all locked down to fcuk, nothing's going to change for a while, we have a lot of good young prospects coming through, ok maybe not a lot but some, which is a change.
I do agree that the there is a fundamental problem with how we defend and the way we respond to the idea of defending, but things are not normal these days and reactions should be less than normal.
i.e. Can we calm down a bit?

Are you out there mate? This (and the other one last year) is your moment.

Walking off in a fairly relaxed fashion at the end there. I'm no physician but looked encouraging.
Good goal from the shaggy haired target man today.
