Was a soft pen but heyho...Noble on a hatrick? What next?

Stadium noise is so quiet...and we're 3-0 up. Just shows how poorly designed this toilet bowl is. If you dropped a bomb on the place I reckon it would still sound like a wet fart. (Hopefully one day someone will drop a bomb on it and it can then be rebuilt as a proper rectangle FOOTBALL ground).

Can people stop criticising players because we are winning. Does it not fit your agenda?

When was the last time we scored 5 in a top flight game? (Burnley 5-3?)

Because I feel here our players want to there is more goals on the offering here.

This is not a criticism of our players. Just an observation. Make of it what you will.

Liking the higher press. More reminiscent of the first few games of this season.

Bournemouth as bad as I can remember. In real trouble

May reserve judgement on how much progress we've made until Gillingham & Sheff Utd but signs are good.

Oh... and 2nd half would be the perfect time to get the protests going loud and proud. Wont harm the team or result and would let the board know exactly where the anger lies

Noble has been 10/10 first half, have to applaud him after the criticism he has been getting.

The sound is interesting. I’m watching on a legit stream for once (got a BT offer to do so) and it sounds flat, switched over to other games and they do as well. Think it is BT’s mixing. Pretty sure I heard a phone go off in the crowd earlier though.

Would be interesting to see what was going on in the background with Manuel. Did he loose the players confidence? judging by the first half, all players look eager to press, run, defend and going forward. We have a good team and I am sure Moyes will take us up the table.

I’ve said it before and people have said it on this site. The amount of s*** Moyes have taken after Man U is unbelievable. He was considered one of the greatest managers in PL after SAF. Give him time, money and a bit of support and I’m sure we can take our team to a steady solid top half team.

To be honest I don't think I can relax until we get a 4th....

Sorry if I sounded harsh on comments about how the players haven't put a shift in recently. I just think it's best to look forward.

As to a swallow does not make a summer I agree but I'm desperate to win this game as we have some bloody difficult ones coming up and if we win this we may only need 6 more wins all season.

I'll say it again.
From what I'm listening the stadium is buzzing on my stream, turn your sound up.
Oh and by the way, where is the protest?

Moyes working his magic. Finally found the only team in the league lower on confidence than ourselves which helps but we've taken our chances and looked fairly comfortable. Now need to see this out. Absolutely must win game after today's results

At least Moyes has finally gotten the message through to Fredericks and Snodgrass to make the channel runs on the wings. All our goals have been made through players running into the channel and receiving a through ball. Makes it a lot harder for the defense to front our man and allows us the yard of space to make that final cross/run/cutback.
