    Danny Cadamarteri Derby

    I know I'm clutching at straws, but didn't the famous Danny Cadamarteri derby win in 1997 come on the back of a severe low point (in my time as a supporter anyway) - i.e losing 4-1 away to coventry and a super charged John Salako :unsure: - in the league cup and howard bollocking the team in...

    Betting on the opposition

    Does anyone in a big game like saturdays ever put bet on the opposition to win just to soften the blow if the unthinkable (i.e we lose) happens? And has any one ever done it in the past ? Personally with the bookies offering 8/11ish on chelsea to win it wouldn't be worth it on this game...

    Reasons to be cheerful - part 4!!!!

    After todays result I think we need to put things into perspective:- 1. We are currently 7 points clear of west ham in 7th, who we have yet to play at home(y) - we should bar a disaster qualify for Europe 2. We have a semi final / wembley appearance in 3 weeks against Utd - who looked...
