Here we go again.

Hoping for a good result here to continue our slow creep up the table.

I'd keep Downing and Samuel in too.

Being a Texan, I'm impressed y'all have even heard of the "Texas death match." :lol:

Need to win, definitely not a "must win" scenario, but no way can you drop points today, & dream you can be promoted (I know we beat Newcastle twice last year. That was them, this is us, lol)

Well your daughter needs to learn mental pain now, so when she starts the relationship period of her life, she knows about being let down.

Otherwise, WE SHALL BE VENKTORIOUS!!!

Edit:RoverSteve, you are a great pollmaster!

Good win. I won't gripe, I take 'em all, no matter the quality of competition.

It felt like at the end we were going to draw, but we were dominant in the first half. Overall, a good win.

Possibly one of the worst games of football I've ever been to. The ONLY positive today was the win. Apart from that we were fucking crap. Useless in possession and no one actually looking interested from an attacking perspective. With the system we are adopting you need your 2 full backs pushing on. Unfortunately Caddis and Williams are very average players (I'm being generous with that assessment).

I could go on but I can't be arsed.
