Many thanks for trying. It's much appreciated. Probably for the best as I have to get up at 5.30 am for golf tomorrow anyway. Will have a quick look for a pirate stream with mandarin commentary :D :D
Take a look at beIN Sports Tang. They often play matches covered by Sky and are my preferred sports channel for footie. With no 5.30 Prem League games there’s always a chance it will be on either beIN 8 or beIN 11.
It’s Dubai who’s looking for the code, not me. Guess Sky is blocked in Dubai. I should be able to get it on iFollow. Signed up for the season.
Oops sorry Tang, that’s what happens when you try doing three things at the same time whilst watching the footie. beIN Sports Channel are Middle East based in Qatar so he may be lucky, that’s if the game is covered.

I wonder if Dubai can get a one match iFollow pass because he lives outside the UK. Before COVID, only non-uk people could get access to iFollow. That only changed to accomodate local fans who couldn’t go the games.

I’ve tried a few times but never been successful. Maybe it’s because I’ve never updated my address with ITFC from the UK to Spain, that may well be the explanation.

I would have thought it’s down to your IP address (based on where you live). I dunno. I’ve had no problems.

Town: Cornell, Chambers (C), Woolfenden, McGuinness, Ward, Dozzell, Huws, Jackson, Judge, Dobra, Drinan.

Subs: Holy, Nsiala, Kenlock, Downes, Siziba, Lankester, Norwood.

Is this a 4-4-2 with Jackson and Drinan up front or 4-3-2-1 with Jackson and judge/Dobra on the wings?

Norwood and Downes on the bench - great news. And Siziba? Isn’t he the French kid? No Hawkins on the bench.

As you say, bench looks great, Downes in particular. That’s fantastic news. Hope he gets minutes during second half.

Yep good to see those Two names on the bench for sure, I suspect Norwood being there is the reason Hawkins isn't.

Surprised to see Siziba there. Would have thought El Mizouni would be above him in the pecking order.

Guess it's 4-2-3-1 with judge behind the lone striker

Still worry about Judge and Huws. Neither have shone since signing.

Looking at the lineup I guess Chambers is our top scorer in the starting line-up. Actually he's probably scored more than the other 10 put together?

Correction. Huws, Jackson, Dobra , goal each.. Chambers 2.

Who’s the commentator? He’s got Woolf and chambers mixed up in the first minute.

Jackson let's his man go cross into box and we are losing. Awful. That's what happens when you play player's out of position. PL you are a idiot.

Time after time we get caught on the bresk due to no left back or right back in position as they are so f**king high up the pitch. So predictable

That is the trouble. When we get forward we mustn’t give it away

I got us as losing 1 - 0 with some 35 minutes played, say it isn't so.

What good are we if we can't overcome opposition like this with a home advantage. f*ck all the possession sh*t, it does us no good whatever percentage it is and they've had more chances on goal than ourselves ? Maybe it's not as bad as reports suggest I don't know not there and can't view action. Maybe any live TV curse is evident again.

Maybe we're just not a very good side.

Same problem. No goal threat. Too slow in the build up

That is indeed sad but, if his head is not in the right place, why play him? Its not like he has been tearing up the opposition in recent months. This lot have not won since November - welcome to portman road, have a goal head start... pathetic. I have never been a big Lambert out guy but he needs to go now - just change something!

Not watching game, but maybe we should pay Sky not to show our games?
For one; to spare us the live tv curse.
And two; spare the rest of the country from suffering abject footballing displays!

Surely we can score in 2nd half? I sincerely hope so.
