Was a cracking day! Atmosphere was a bit flat, but I guess that is nothing new. Still, not a bad first home game to chose! :raver:

My impression was that Dioup was very good, not just holding, but advancing with intent when safe to do so with Nolan only then dropping back, like old fashioned wing halves.

And Nolan was also performing well at both ends. After his cross field pass from about 40 yards out to Faubert which led to the goal, he was alongside Carew for the cross.

Agree with that. I thought about the atmosphere too - I mean there we were winning 4 - 0 and I'm thinking it could be 7 but it was pretty flat. Bring on my next away trip Coventry where we have approx 4,000 seats.

Best laugh was downstairs at half time in the Chicken Run, some fella's birthday and it was like being in a social club!! No stripper turned up though!!

On my way to the game I just knew that we were in for a good game, felt it in my water.

Cracking day, great weather, a few pints of the black stuff in the Queens.

Great crowd in the Sir Trevor lower (K140 - N150). Great atmosphere.

All in all a very enjoyable day.

Atmosphere has been poxy for a while now, with exception of derby games. The best I can remember for a while was Ispwich in playoffs, the place was bouncing that evening.

That was probably the best night atmos-wise in about the last decade, maybe a few more decent home wins like Saturday (about time!) and the atmosphere will start to pick up. Maybe if we go top of the table? :raver:

A few thoughts post-game:

1. thought Carew was absolutely outstanding - one of the best centre forward performances I have seen in a long while - I've been one of carlton's supporters for a while but the difference between the two is frightening.

2. Diop was fantastic - at home, the formation from saturday is definitely the way to go with nolan and diop in the middle and hopefully meaning we dont see noble for a while.

3. Baldock is what we have been missing since bellamy left.

Dont know if anyone has posted this already but here is a video containing 15 mins of audio of the crowd from the game, the groundsman episode is around 13 minutes.

This will be my only match of the season as I am back in Canada. But what a cracker. Much better than the Birmingham match I got to see last year.

Thought Faubert was very good and his delivery better than usual

Shame he'll leave on a free at the end of the year, really

Has Saludo been on recently or is he still counting windows?

Good performance, good win, and the 4th time in 11 we have scored 4 goals.

A late reflection...any thoughts.

My initial summary was that Taylor didn't contribute much, probably 'cos I hadn't seen much wing play from him, but seeing the highlights later he put through three clever through balls from the centre of midfield.(could have been anybody from where I was sitting!)

Would it have been planned to bring him inside to give a bit of creativity rather than width?

Certainly Linda was getting forward well, maybe to compensate.

Or is he not an out and out wide player any more?
