Doesn't seem to bee one so here are my candidates.
1) the support given to David Raya after that little miscontrol
2) the Hull city fans singing 2-1 are you are playing sh*t which was quickly replied with us singing 3-1 and were are playing sh*t when Ollie Watkins made it 3

It has to be the Watkins goal
Long ball out by Pinnock, Henry’s cross at pace, Watkins in between the Hull Centre Backs heads in
Great Team Goal, I was reading a comment from , I think it was Banana, that on a visit to the Training Ground. After all the lads had come in some were out on the pitch practicing, balls down the touch line and Rico Henry crossing for Watkins to head in. It goes to show practice makes perfect

Rico mentioned exactly the same training ground routine in his post-match interview . 😀

Going 3-1 up and thinking as an absolute fact, excellent we've won.

I'm sure there have been times supporting Bees that we'd gone 3-1 up and I'd thought, hopefully we should hang on for a draw.

Our third goal- Ollie’s header. Rico’s determined run and pinpoint cross on the move for Ollie’s finish. Perfection and my goal of the season so far.

The Globe.

The goals.

The hat-trick.

The performance.

Saïd Benrahma and his love for his papa.

Definitely Said's dedication to his dad after the first goal. Goal celebrations don't get more emotional than that!
They need to sort out this removing shirt rule in football. I know they have to make it black and white, but he had a shirt on underneath FFS!

Sitting with Simmo at the game and thinking, I remember Oh! So well, when we were **** (not very good).
These times are great being a Bees fan. Savour them
Yesterday was absolutely brilliant and so glad Said made it his day after what he has gone through.

Also ... having a police escort (no flashing lights) before game and to the parking area.
All the roads were closed off cos of flooding. Saw a police car and he said follow me. 2 miles later, we got there lol

Said and TF's hug.

Absolutely. A moment charged with emotion. Perhaps Said was instinctively seeking an alternative father-figure, or conveying thanks to someone who was temporarily offering himself in that role.

They have sorted it out. It's a mandatory caution. Every player knows it.

I sympathise with Said, but knowingly getting a caution after 10 minutes is just unprofessional.

To be honest, I think Said had more important things on his mind than getting an 'unprofessional' card as you put it.

Sometimes, in certain situations, life is more important than football eh?

Glad you mentioned the support for Raya after his mistake. It was for me the pivotal moment of the game and far more important to the team than anything else. He looked utterly deflated by letting the ball through and having Pinnock and Jeanvier come straight to him for the sort of high fives you’d normally give a keeper who’d just saved a penalty to keep you in the game rather than one who’d needlessly scored an og to let the opposition back in said volumes for team spirit and leadership even in the absence of Pontus.

I contrast this with Liverpool’s treatment of Karius after his errors in the CL final, at least one of which was probably due to playing concussed. It makes me not really like them as a team despite playing brilliantly.

The result was the whole team carried on doing what it meant to, carried on trusting Raya and the defence to play out from the back and didn’t let the error give Hull hope we’d fall apart. Well before the 3rd goal the Hull fans had given up trying to wind Raya up everytime the ball came to his feet. That team spirit and support is priceless.

Marginally spoiled by the Typo...

Nothing a blue felt-tip and some Tipp-Ex wouldn’t have fixed.

Mathias Jensen’s pirouette / step over late in the 2nd half. Winning easily, he almost lost possession but through a mixture of desire and skill (two words that define the team) sets up another dangerous attack.

I hadn't realised that there was one until I just double-checked - you're quite right! However, I suspect that very few fans would have spotted it!

Put me out of my misery. I can’t see a typo. Missing commas maybe, but otherwise I’m lost.

Sadly I don’t think he is!
Unprofessional??
This to the man who insisted on playing a few days after burying his dad!
Fair point, and I do admire the way he has played through what I know is a hard time when you lose a parent. But I guess I am just not one for public displays of emotion, and I worry about the potential consequences for Said and the team if his actions had led on to a second card yesterday - or indeed, if he had scored after his caution on Tuesday and done what he did yesterday.
Apologies to those who found my previous post unsympathetic.

We used to celebrate when we reached 50 points, now it passes without comment or thought.

The apostrophe should be after the "t" i.e. "Je t'aime" (rather than "Je 'taime").

Oh, I was looking for a typo in ITK’s post!

Yes, he needs to find a new t shirt printer for any future messages.

It is possible that it’s North African/Southern French slangy grammar which can be very odd looking.

They were doing this drill before the forest game, unfortunately several people almost ended up being beheaded in ealing road so they put a stop to it. Should have known it wasnt going to be our day from that :fishing:

Once upon a time a ref could officiate using his own judgment and a bit of common sense. Today everything has to be done by the rule book irrespective of the circumstances.

But its intended audience will have, that was my point. Not really a problem as I've never heard of the verb taimer, so at least it does not convey another meaning.

Im ‘ sure that t sh-irt makers require specific instructions in punctuation in spelling as much as some GPG pedants require a cork up their rear. Benrahma hat trick was my champagne moment.

No. Not a slang thing, not a Maghreb thing, not a Midi thing, just a wrong thing.

Obviously the win and the hat trick etc...

But the look on the young ball boys face when their goal went in was an absolute classic.

Shock/disbelief and true joy in the space of 5 seconds.

You only saw that after we scored again, though. Wouldn’t be the same if they scored the next goal.
