Get in! Defoe and Wickham on the score sheet and our second home win! We also now have the only player to have played the full 90 minutes in every match this season (O'Shea).

God I wish United had signed Eriksen...
yeah he's definitely a good player one of the few things we did get right with our £100 mil spending spree
I was so surprised that a Champions League team didn't buy him, he's class. 
It's possible that someone will at some stage although I hope not as he's proved to be a pretty good replacement for Bale other than the fact I still think we need another striker I think we're looking good now as I think we're starting to find a bit of form. We started off badly this season but things are starting to come good now I think.

QPR will get the new manager boost for their next away game and pick up points. Oh bugger, that's against us. :neutral: 

Great, we only have 5 subs on the bench!

So we've sacked Gary Johnson, what's the point when the players can't be changed now. We now have Terry Skiverton in charge, who a few years back stepped aside so GJ could come back, and get us away from the bottom of league 1. The board are clueless

Through the replay, Graham looking strong and Alvarez scoring a screamer. Bradford are not to be underestimated, but this could be a great chance of getting to Wembley again...

The reason I'm so angry though, people having been calling for change for a while. They had over 500k they could've spent in January, but spent nothing even though we are bottom. So the board obviously didn't have confidence in GJ, so they should've grown some balls and got rid of him at the start of last month. By sacking him now nothing can be done to improve the squad. 

After January ended they should've just stuck with him, as his contract ends at the end of the season. By sacking him now we've had to pay him off, money that could've been spent on players. He may be the best manager we've had, as he got us from the conference to the Championship (in two spells) but he's lost his marbles the last year, got rid of all our good players (fell out with them) which is a petty thing for a manager to do.

yeah I know all clubs make silly mistakes though I think because I felt the same when Redknapp was at Spurs everything was going well for us probably the best it had  for a long time. Yet he lost his job in my view unnecessarily because he wasn't to know Chelsea would win the CL that year and in doing so prevent us from getting into it. If I had been chairman I'd have kept him in charge because for me it felt like we were going places under him and I think we were playing some of the best football I'd seen for a long time

Of course it's a line Shepard says to Jack at the end of her recruitment mission. When she's arguing about Shepard working with Cerberus as she has a rather bad history with them as you discover later on during her loyalty mission. He's says that line to her because he wants her on his side it's one of the renegade responsesyou can pick in the game. I personally love Garrus follow up line as he responds by saying "They have a way of dying". Trying to find a vid of it but can't at the moment but it's a renegade response

Would've been a perfect day if it wasn't for Man City messing up my accumulator. They were the only team to let me down, would've won £150.

Don't gamble, solves the problem ;)
This season I'm up over £300 so I'm not sure why I shouldn't. It makes the games more interesting, and I'm pretty good at picking games as I look at loads of stats. ;) Last week I won £50 on a £1 bet.

I don't gamble but then I don't really have the money for it. I do have a casino style game on PC where you can play things ilke blackjack/ poker type games with fake money but it's not an online thing. I don't play it very often though.
