Think the site was down all morning. Not the best time for that to happen ——> derby day!
Not able to watch, but early reports suggest a really Shyte game so far.

Tense & frantic Marko, not much quality and most viewers would have switched off by now unless a fan of either side.

Walters just hit our best effort so far on 39 mins.

Graham just booked for diving, ffs

Skuse injury not looking good, long delay could be 10 min or more added time.

Chalobah on for Skuse, let’s hope he settles into the game quickly.

That’s a long delay and stretchered off. Clash of heads? Hope he hasn’t fractured his skull.

I wish we could make better use of set pieces which are mostly wasted.

Half time comes on 57.50 mins, must be the longest first half ever for a Town game ?

Reading back through the first half notes..... looks fairly even...... no team dominant.

The site was down earlier ? Not sure was that was about but more importantly there's no breakthrough at the stadium and why was Bialkowski omitted from the starting XI ?

Unable to view the game and radio is just about useless so making do with score updates as it progresses. Says Norwich have the lead on possession but chances about equal. Lo and behold you got the Glasgow derby underway as we speak, home side have a lead. Some of the same scenario wouldn't go amiss in our own game.

Gerrard (being hired) was a brave move, only time will tell if it was a smart one.

Played in big vociferous derby games on Merseyside so he's no stranger to such an event but the Glasgow one perhaps takes it to another level. No way they'll win the championship, another few years of stability in the SPL after the indignity of relegation and club debacle

Sorry had to break off there we got a f**king lead ! Yes we're ahead and Edwards has us ahead - damn it we're going to win after nearly 10 years you can feel it. f*ck this could be a worthwhile day after all, Celtic and Ipswich ahead over disliked neighbors, feel better already if you can believe it.

Forgot to add that earlier........ DELIGHTED that Bart was handed bench time. He needed it going on match reports.

Wearing a Greene King retro circa 2001, hasn't been put on some time but the occasion would seem to warrant it. Brief update on the radio, says we're comfortable but "holding on".

f*ck, they've equalized I'm taking it off, RIGHT NOW. Bloody hell. Thought we were going to do it, of course we still can but let them back in it again. Participate again when this damn event's over. Wish I was at the game though, you can't beat such an experience.
