Of course as soon as I announce that this is the season and the Gills are definitely going up we'll instantly crash and burn.

So I won't.

saw that

very sad

shame he never managed to realise his potential. he looked promising for us for a while but just tailed off.

saw Mark O'Brien (from efc zine When Skies Are Grey) mentioned it in his match preview this morn:
For fellas who spend their formative years in professional football, where they become used to great money for very little graft, perhaps it is unsurprising that narcotics seems to be an increasingly popular line of work – they can continue to be the envy of all their mates, right up until the moment they get caught.

I'm off to see my first match of the season tomorrow. Saints are due a win, right?

Hope you have a nice time. We're going to be in Hull on boxing day and I'm thinking that home game against Leicester might be worth a visit.

One defensive calamity and more poor penalty decisions put paid to that!

Indeed! It definitely looked like we were going to win, Swansea were dreadful. But we were nice enough to give them the easiest goal ever.

Still, I had a good day out.

Where were you sitting? We sit in the Chapel Family Stand as Geraldine's 10 year old son gets a free season ticket there.

Massive game at QPR on Saturday!

I was high up in the Kingsland - my season-ticket-holding friends usually try to get us near their area in the Northam but couldn't this time around.

There's definitely a few make-or-break games coming up now. The next one I can potentially make is Sunderland, just before Christmas... with games against QPR, Norwich and Reading before then, I'm hoping things will look a little bit less bleak!

Superb performance and win at QPR yesterday - just what the doctor ordered!

Yep! Brilliant stuff. I managed to watch a good chunk of the match via nefarious Internet streaming and some of the passing was magical, although QPR helped out by being fairly hopeless. Not convinced by any of our keepers though. Hopefully Gazzaniga will gain some confidence if he gets a decent run in the team, though...

Imagine being sacked because of dropping Torres. Presumably Abramovich still believes he's just a couple of games away from becoming a 30 goals a season striker again.

is it for dropping torres, do you reckon? or the losing streak?

not really a baffling one - i reckon everyone expected it

still, imagine winning the champions league and getting binned off six months later

Saints were superb today. Only losing 2-0 flattered Newcastle; Ramirez was class and for once the defence looked solid!

yep. we (Newcastle) are all out of sorts and it was only really the woodwork that kept the score respectable.

I know it was the right time to play you with injuries etc but you didn't look like a coherent team.
Nice to see Pardew get a good reception here and him respond to the home crowd's "Pardew, give us a wave!" chant positively!
