from the North.
Not bought a ticket there since Kop days. Only occasionally been back at a time when you could walk along three sides unchallenged, to pass the time and look for old friends, anything to distract one from the dross on the field.
Good atmosphere and one or two sensible, objective comments from those around me.
Exuberant youth puffing out their collective chest made me smile, but some of the chanting sets my teeth on edge. Please can someone explain why there's a swell of noise, culminating in what sounds like "YOU'RE SHIT!!! AAAHHH!!!" when the opposing goalie takes a dead-ball kick? It's puerile, embarrassing and rarely serves any purpose.
"Day trippers go home" is another one.
Overall it was an enjoyable experience, but lacked the adrenaline of old, when opposition supporters were, literally and unfortunately, a stone's throw away
Can't understand booing any player in tangerine.
Yes, I've shown displeasure to the team as a whole at the end of a poor performance, questioned managerial decisions after a game and voiced concerns about particular on the field incidents.
I've booed ex-nobbers when they've played against us and, occasionally, former Pool players who've shown disrespect to fans, but never one of our own, even if he has (and I don't know if this is so in Curtis's case) expressed an interest in furthering his career elsewhere.
Am I missing something?
Only Tilt and Thompson to worry about for me.
Know Curtis has had an inconsistent season, but still want him to stay.
Bought a polo shirt today. First official purchase in many a year.
OK, it was pricey £25, but:-
Shop staff were helpful.
Store (for GSP and fans stateside) was busy.
Positive vibe from all with whom I came into contact.
I've been one of our biggest critics, on and off the field in recent times, but the buzz about the place took me back decades, to a time when one got butterflies in the stomach, anticipating success and stability.
We might just be back.
Onwards and upwards Evo.
He's proving a few doubters wrong

He does appear positive, enthusiastic and honest. We're hopefully laying the foundations for a stronger, more stable future.
As far as the game is concerned, thought we were rarely in danger of losing, but it was a frustrating first half.
They came out a little quicker in the second period, then big A netted and I thought, unwisely, that we might get a few more.
They changed their formation and we struggled to adapt for 25 minutes, or so.
Was impressed with Spearing and young Mac, who's taken his chance and merits a place.
Armand is, admittedly, a handful. They were shit-scared of him and I think he's worked on his hold-up play.
Plus he's not afraid to shoot, even though one effort in the second half ended up nearer the corner -flag than the net. We were told, as youngsters, that you don't score if you don't shoot and it was frustrating on occasions when we tried to be too intricate.
Having said all that, I think we'll be OK and don't believe Ipswich will be relishing our visit. We have players who can turn games although I'd like to see a little more creativity.

Popped in early on my way to the food bank, but hadn't read any updates, so didn't think anyone would be around later.
Plus driving, so made do with a brew
