    We've got pitch covers at St James Park, and even then that was bought using some sort of fan raised fund through the trust, rather than the club itself, so undersoil heating is way out of our league. We seem to be having a few backroom issues at the moment, the one of the members of the board of the supporters trust (which is the majority shareholder) has managed to fall out with everyone on the board of the club itself, due to a football site he runs, and the fact that he's trying to throw his weight around a bit, can't see that it will mean anything in the long run, but it does highlight an issue with Fan owned clubs, if the club ever needed to dip into the reserve fund there could be problems if neither of the boards are actually speaking to each other.

    Beckford and Danns sent off and losing 1-0. Today has been an incredibly crap day.

    You were unlucky today to be fair. We didn't play very well even with 11 vs 10, once we got the goal it was kind of all over, the game as a whole was fairly even. Plus the fact you actually finished with only 8 men on the pitch. The fans kept going all game though!

    Sheffield Wednesday up to second after Huddersfield dropped points against MK Dons.

    Stevenage do the double over Sheffield Wednesday with a 1-0 win at Hillsborough nicely complimenting our 5-1 win at home last September. This gives us an all-time record over Sheffield clubs of three played, three won, with an aggregate score of 8-2.

    Now we just need to beat Sheffield United at Bramall Lane in April and we'll have completed a very unexpected quadruple. That also means that, providing we win our games in hand, we should be up to 4th in the league, and it'll be 3rd if we win our upcoming game against Huddersfield Town. Suddenly, automatic promotion is a real possibility, not so bad for the rank outsiders back in August!

    But the league campaign is to take the backfoot for a week now, as we host Tottenham Hotspur in the last sixteen of the FA Cup on Saturday! Tickets went like gold dust (the armchairs always come out of the woodwork for games like this) but, thanks to my membership in the Supporters' Association, I got my ticket with no bother.

    Kermorgant was decent. :yep:

    edit: Oh and we did get it back - if it weren't for the FA not including away goals - we'd have won.

    Damn these straws feel nice.

    Best moment ever almost a year ago for me when Obafemi Martins scored that screamer against the gooners.

    I don't know. I've been 3 times, lost twice on the same side of the stadium :rolleyes: so hopefully the other end!

    nah. Far too inconsistent.

    Don't think we've won back to back league games in about a year now (since the 2-0 defeat v youse lot last Feb), and we really need to hit a sustained run of form to get ourselves in there.

    Still, at least Florist and Cov are dooooooooooooomed.

    Been 1 won 1 at Wembley, 100% record
    Same can't be said for Millennium Stadium though, only a 50% win record there.

    Yeah, looks like it's going to be a very interesting end to the season coming up. I think we need to get some emergency loans in to keep our push for automatic going. If not we're screwed, and if it comes to play offs we'd have played a lot of games!

    I know, where did you lot come from !? Although the guy on SSN said it wasn't a great game to watch tonight?

    Same with us I think. We got Harris from Newcastle but defensively I'm not convinced. We were never the same after someone nicked RJ off us :rolleyes:
