I hope we'll see more of this from you.

Can't remember if you, or one of your group said they do the same for the away games too, or whether my mind is playing tricks on me. I know it's only early days but the signs are there for a new and long-awaited change in fortunes for our great Football Club.
I think the least said about the blip that was last week at Mordor the better, let's just hope it has been seriously condemned to the past and never to rear it's ugly head again. Maybe, it was the 'kick up the arse' that was needed!
It will be an interesting remainder of the month, both in terms of the possible accumulation of points, which are possible. Also to see what happens if anything, as far as Transfers are concerned. It can't be denied that we are a couple short in midfield and defence, but whether they are permanent or loans remains to be seen.
Keep up the good work Dave, and pass my respect to your fellow Blue Travellers who have my utmost respect.

I agree about the stadium but will certainly miss Goodison but equally the surrounding area ( St Lukes church memorabilia, greasy spoon cafes, Winslow etc etc ).
Pretty much agree with your scores too!

Let's hope for a few signings this month.

Ive got no problem with players having a go back sometimes. Coleman has done it previously. It shows they care. I wish the biggest culprits (Sigurdsson and Schneiderlin) could show a bit of passion sometimes. They obviously dont care as much...

I was particularly interested in your observations concerning the exchanges between Ancelotti and The big fella. I hadnt seen that.
Has Duncan's little stint as Manager given him the believe and confidence to have a greater input during the match, or is he being encouraged to give an opinion by a manager who despite all he has won, is still humble enough to take on board the views of his team ? I`d be happy with either. I`d be happier with both,.
Well done to all you West country boys and girls and all those other supporters club who dragged themselves out of bed for this. You all knew it could well have been a long, long journey home if last weeks result still haunted the players. . but you came anyway.

I think its a bit of both. Duncans stint must have given him confidence especially with the clever man management of Carlo in praising what he did at every opportunity. It always struck me that previous managers must have told everyone else on the bench to keep quiet because they usually were! Carlo seems to embrace input from Duncan and I do wonder if he has been tasked with training him with a view to his succession?

You can use the thread where people offer tickets and request tickets (tickets & travel) to also organise meetings, it says so in the sub-title of the thread, so next time post there and check there for responses. I did say I would meet you!

Evertonians might be hard to please at times but why not? Because they never let the club down.
I was getting told it got pretty embarrassing for Delph at F/F the other day when Ancellotti came into the room and had a proper go at him, screaming his head off right into his face, but the only thing Delph would have understood was that he was getting a proper bollocking, because Carlo shouted every word in his native language, which tells me he must have been one of the few who disagreed with Ferguson last week

My wife does the same when I'm off to away games.
Good article, Dave. I met a guy in the Spellow at the weekend who travels to all home games from the depths of Lincoln - an awkward journey for him, I think.

The distance is a pain and the entire day is a write off so your other half needs to buy into it if you are to get to most games. Mine cant stand football hence I pick and choose a bit though having recently retired I think Jane is becoming keener on losing me for a whole day!
Brent- Lincoln must be a sod of a trip. Ours is a long distance but at least virtually all motorway. Its the season ticket holders who amaze me- all that distance and mediocre performances yet they fork out every year- there must have been around 30 of them on the coach on Saturday. Their devotion to the club shames pretty much all of the players.
