Yep it sounded like "They're expecting! Can I say that?".

I want to see a picture of Adam at that moment.
This!

Word is that he was not happy with Bono.
Secret's out?

Adam should be the one making the announcement, when he wants to. That Bono!!

Another child at this age? It must be hard touring with young children.

Yeah but he isn't like us. $$$$. I think Bono said it before Trip. They also did 'The Streets post' on the Tree stage before going back to the Red screen to do it again. Special moment tonight with Noel sounding awesome but was when Edge's cousin was honoured during UV. I have slagged that portion of the show on this forum for it's misandry but it was touching.

Well Twickenham made a right embarrassing mess of Red Zone tonight. It didn't directly affect me but I was on the GA rail bordering it.  Several people got in there without Red passes / bands. Some may have been trying it on but some were genuinely let in by staff and thought they were okay to be there - maybe they didn't know what that section meant? Anyway Crowd Management were sent around first of all and tried the soft approach, telling them could they please leave. They refused and I assumed they came to some compromise due to their error (and the RZ area being huge for the amount of bodies actually there anyway). A good 15-20 mins pass and Noel starts his set. Crowd Management then return, beefed up and checking everyone. The people without passes are again told to go and are escorted out, one had to be dragged out after things got physical. I then watched other physical confrontations and arguments raging at the RZ entrance for what seemed like the entirety of Noel's set.

How difficult was it to man the RZ gates and know what to look for? Hope they have it sussed tomorrow.

Bob Geldof there as well (according to Bono anyway) - enjoyed tonight, anyone else think Noel seemed a lot more erm, 'energised' singing Don't Look Back In Anger than he did at any point in the support slot?

That's a shame as the GA queue itself was incredibly well organised.

Why'd they choose to play Dont Look Back In Anger, of all Oasis songs, when Noel already played it to end his own set? I think that the idea of collaboration is cool; but, it just seems like a wasted opportunity to have the same song played twice in the same night.

It became a symbolic song from the Manchester bombing. But personally don't think it should have been done twice.

Can anyone advise how the screen looked in broad daylight?
And roughly what time did Noel come on?

Noel must have come on at half 6 but maybe someone else has that more accurate. The daylight issue really wasn't as bad as I feared. Not ideal but Streets still looked impressive. The main thing was the sun had dipped behind the stadium so although daylight, it was at least comfortable daylight and rapidly fading. The few hours before that had been quite uncomfortable for those of us not so good with heat though. There was very welcome cloud cover as we neared U2's set.
