    I'll be at my first Hamlet game in a fortnight - in London for a week so I'm going to see your home game against the cops. Couldn't have picked a better one!
    We smashed them 3-1 midweek, our first win in almost 7 years against them. Honestly couldn't pick a better time to see us either.

    Damn I was going to post a reply but my computer decided to cut off my internet connection. Since I can't be bothered to re-write it, you can see from my post history who I support

    I've also been to a few Crystal Palace games with my mum's colleague who's an avid fan of theirs, so I like to see how they do too.
    But what do you think of Bradford's manager, he's done well in terms of cup runs but in the league its nothing specials. At the end of the day its just cup runs the league is what matters, long ball is not the answer.

    Crewe Alexandra ?

    I would bet on your club sacking their manager only if they are perilously close to relegation.
    Crewe are a well-run club, they stuck with Dario G through promotions and relegations and now they have a famous football academy The post-Dario era has been interesting to say the least

    True. I really like the lower league clubs and I have a lot of respect for your fans especially the 70 or less I think that came to Bradford on a tuesday night when you were in the relegation Zone. Coming all that way to support your team in relegation and we were in the play offs at the time. Real fans

    Solid home win today keeping us in the top 6 with a game in hand on everyone else. Certainly seems that we have a team that won't get many draws this season.

    What a game at Loftus Road, but Ben Amos may be one of the worst goalkeepers in the second tier.

    Great results for Wolves and Reading, though. That goal at Sheffield Wednesday was just lovely, too.

    Not sure about pubs, we have a bar though in the clubhouse which is cheap. Also, we don't need to comply with non-league/league grounds, so you can bring cans of cider/beer/insert beverage here to the ground.

    Shouldn't be busy tonight though, Tuesday night and Met Police normally means around about 450-500 at the ground.

    Cheers :yy:

    I'll bring in a tin or two then but also have one in the clubhouse. Does Met Police mean fewer than usual? Would have thought some lefties would be dead up for a chance to abuse the cops. Definitely why a mate of mine is coming.

    I'm not too sure, a lot of the more committed fans try to avoid this fixture because lefties feel its a chance to grow some abuse at the side, which is ironic as the board, the players, and coaching staff have no association to the police anymore and haven't had a player actively in the Met since 2011. A lot of us throw a jokey remark or chant at them which they take off the chest, but I wouldn't recommend it too much. I'm trying to get there for kick off from university but at this rate its unlikely. Have a good time regardless and hopefully ill see you there!

    Had a really good night watching England Under-21s at the Ricoh Arena last night. Akpom really impressed me, though it was a shame to see Gomez hobble off with an injury after a seemingly innocuous challenge.

    First goalscorer for each team were Sweeney and Crook at a Met Police game. That was very funny. Shame the Met won, they didn't deserve the result I didn't think - their second goal was out of nowhere and Hamlet seemed to have all the pressure in the second half.

    Summed up easier, their keeper had a ****ing blinder in the second half and even if we deserved all 3 they held out well. Missed out chance of going top, but onward to Saturday. Hope you enjoyed the game though!

    His double save deep into stoppages was fantastic.

    Yeah I had a good time, I'll be coming back given the chance. Ended up with a whole bunch of regulars I know through the grapevine who I hadn't seen for years which was nice.

    Generally how much should the average league one striker score in order for a promotion, if they team generally plays two strickers up front how much should each score ?

    If the two strikers split the goalscoring fairly evenly, somewhere between 12 & 15, I'd say.

    Very often though, especially in the lower leagues, one prolific goalscorer (circa 20 goals) gives you a huge advantage.

    Most unbelievable thing about that is the fact he's still playing

    I genuinely thought he retired about 3 years ago

    Yeah, that is huge news, Mowbray is able to attract that kinda of player to league one. If (and it is a big if) he can play to even 25% of his PL form then Coventry are onto a winner. His fitness will be poor but brining him on for the last20/30 minutes or playing one half will bring a lot of quality to the side. Its only a one month contract so we need to see how he gets on.
