It being very cold I fancied a wee dram before the match but could only see bottles of Jack Daniels (just about the worst shit imaginable when it comes to whiskey). However, a kindly member of staff went into a backroom and managed to find an unopened bottle of Glenmorangie 10 year old single malt, which she then poured a generous double of but only charged me for a single shot of JD. Thus, my drink plus Eric's pint was only £8.70, which I'm sure everyone will accept is a fairly good result by the standards of a modern football stadium.
And so is a point away at Brighton if I'm being honest. I just assumed we'd lose and we should have but having had a read through the last few pages I realise that I'm still not that worried about the state of affairs (but will be if we don't pick up some points in the next two games).
Congrats on blagging a decent dram. Respect.
I think everyone is delighted to have come away from there with a point.
That's not what anyone is concerned about.
The week before we lost, but everyone was reasonably relaxed because the performance was so good. Play like that every week and we have no problem.
The worries after Saturday is because the performance was so poor.
Play like that every week and we have a major problem.
I think the inconsistency is wots worrying.
Mirrors and copulation are abominable, since they both multiply the numbers of men.
