Watching the intro to Dragons v Northampton on S4C and the pitch looks stunning.

[Edit: Doesn't look quite so good from the match camera position, but still improved out of all recognition.]

I was at the game in 1983/84. Great game with County scoring a late goal to win 3-2.

I suppose we should get the maximum away supporters' revenue from iFollow for this match. Let's hope we disappoint them.

most teams who score early,then settle down and keep doing the same things and look for more.We score early and already start playing for the final whistle,we drop off deeper,stop pushing men forward and invite teams to attack us.The ideal situation is,like at Walsall,score with 20 left,that way we have a chance of hanging on.

Strange how we watch the same game, yet interpret it differently. I thought we lost at Barrow mainly because we went looking for the 2nd goal when 1-0 up by pushing Dolan into midfield,with the wingbacks still high up the pitch leaving us short at the back and susceptible to the long ball over the top.

8 league and 2 cup. Presumably cup match yellows counted separately for suspensions this season.

Baker, Gambin and Evans totally frozen out again. Don't understand the Baker omission from squad when Shephard, for all his decent approach play, seems incapable of putting a decent final ball into the box!

Gambin still doesn't make the bench. Ledley drops to bench. No Baker, Haynes, Evans. Yet again no creativity or speed. Not sure I'll fork out another tenner.

No,I remember early second half,the ball played down the channel and Matty coming across to tackle.He did move forward later,it may have been at 1-1 or after they went in front.
