Over the bridge from Lego Lane
Just a short walk from Hooters
Postcode - give your Satnav a break, you aren't going anyway.

Kick-off 14:15 UK Time
Sunday 28/06/2020


Apparently this is the view from the Stoke end of the river. of what is waiting for us

Forest fans can also order a cardboard cut out of themselves, or like L666s, Osama Bin Liner, to put in their seats. DC will likely put a few of ours on the pitch again.



How's everyone doing out there? Anyone still got a garden shed/back bedroom full of bog rolls, kitchen towels and bars of soap? What caused all of Morrisons hens to stop laying eggs and why are Asda's hens still only laying expensive ones? Anyone going stir crazy?

Everywhere for most of the last 3 months has been a bit like this


Until the sun came out again (no not the fish and chip paper) .

Not if you live in Bornmuff it isn't and some of the scousers were well and truly socially undistanced Thursday night too. Obviously haven't learn from the fact they are in one of the country's Covid hot-spots that was mostly sparked by a Europa League game played at Anfield. Doh

Town head down the M1 on Sunday while the travelling fans stay at home and try and watch the match on their phone, tellybox or not if the EFL have their way again, while having a few beers in their own private beer garden. my noisy neighbours over the road are having a full scale practise by the sound of it without watching any football.

On the tellybox
Well if you're a Season Card Holder you might be lucky enough for the EFL to have got their collective fingers out and sorted the complete and utter cock-up that was last Saturday on iFollow. On the other hand you might just about be able to tune in by 14:30. Otherwise we've been shuffled off to Sunday afternoon so the hordes that watch on Sky down the pub can do so this weekend. Oh, wait a minute.

Otherwise it's on tellybox channels in all these other wonderful places to live.

I think I'll trust my Now TV subscription for this one. Oggy and Herr Schnitt can talk to themselves as far as I'm concerned.

Latest news
Where to start?

The good news, by this time next weekend the pubs will be back open.
The bad news, you'll probably have to queue to get in, or book an appointment (wtf is that about?) and give them your name, address, date of birth, inside leg measurement hand over your first born and credit card details so they can flog them off on eBay at the end of the month.

The Prima Donna League have cut the parachute payments on the back of having to pay back (or not receiving as much from) TV rights holders.

As Snoots reported a result of this is Danny Simpson was told his "agreed" one month contract extension was pulled just before kick-off last Saturday. We could have waited until after the match to tell him but I doubt it would make much difference. Grabara has been released back to Liverpool, well we don't need him and Lossl. Town are hoping returning 3-some Ryan Schofield (Livingston) along with Swindon promotion-winner Rarmani Edmonds-Green and Rotherham's promoted winger Josh Koroma can be played if required.

With a bit of luck, Campbell and Mounié will have learned to socially distance and won't have bumped into each other in training again this week, Pritchard might be fit enough to start, Smith-Rowe will have recovered from warm weather syndrome and stopped throwing up and Bacuna has enough training in his legs so he doesn't cramp up again.

Last time out
A certain left-footed right winger received a longball and cut into the box to score with his left foot in the far corner for Forest's opener against Wendies last weekend. His name will come to me. Meanwhile Town huffed and puffed and eventually gave up against Wigan.

Tables
You can't rely on the tables after only one match, but one match after a 3 month break they still don't make good reading.

Form
We both need some.

Innies and Outies
You'll be pleased to know that Forest fans are as underwhelmed with Diakhaby as we were/are.

Who's banging 'em in
That's him - 2nd on the list of goalscorers and assists. We should make a bid for him, but knowing our lot we'd end up paying Forest £5million just to get Diakhaby back.

They can't all win
All the games that are fit to watch and plenty more that aren't, based on what's been on the tellybox so far.

Down amongst the dead men Stoke and Boro are favourites to take points off each other in Colin's first game back from semi-retirement.
Any truth in the rumour he's got this lad in as his driver?
[Image: 14bc0f55-4724-4a48-8161-3f188cdae9fe.jpg...&width=720]
Apparently he knows his way around the North-East blindfold. Whistle

We've played 'em before
Town have won 5 out of the last 7, with Forest winning 1. I wouldn't bet against them making it 2 on Sunday.

Next up?
Brum away early on Wednesday evening. Apparently it's a time travelling thing, we're not using the Team Bus as we've borrowed the Tardis off yon Huddersfield lass with the fantastic screwdriver.

I noticed I got my refunds for both these tickets, minus the P&P charge. Now fair enough for the Forest game, I've still got the ticket, but they never sent them out for the Brum game, cheeky barstewards that are Ticketmaster.

Pressers
DC says we need to respond with actions - no shit Sherlock!

Roll on when we can all do this - safely or better still without shitting yourself if someone comes over and asks you a perfectly reasonable question.

Nice one, theo.

So we've won 5 out of the last 7 against them. Win this one and we'll have to put them in with Wolves as teams we are bogies for. Big Grin

Not a good start to the weekend. Both Charlton and Luton have won. Sad

And now Hull City are two up at Birmingham. Sick

Well Birmingham came back to draw with Hull but we start this match from a position in the relegation zone. Sad

Having said that, a win will take us up three places. Smile

No kidding, I've got one result right so far in your Prediction League. Think I need to invest in a pair of dice, they've as much chance of predicting the scores as me right now.

I couldn't post them for some reason.

Good start. Should've had a penalty. How the ref hasn't given it, God knows!
Earlier Ameobi hit the post when unmarked. Duhaney well out of position and jogging back. Come on, son. Keep up.
