This idea of a snap General Election
at 02:12 29 Jun 2016

is, in reality, not much more than a thinly disguised second referendum on the EU question, masquerading as an affirmation of the new PM.

I've just ordered Bonnie Tylers goalkeeping blunders Vol 2

It's just totally clips of Joe Hart.
I'm no longer interested in the for/against arguments for leaving the EU

Now the Referendum's happened, there's no point in continuing with this. Whether leaving turns out to be a good idea, How much damage (if any) the country will suffer and for how long, will only be proven by the passage of time.

We have a situation. Now we need to look forwards at the practicalities of dealing with it.

Constant revisiting of the actual decision will only exacerbate division, the last thing we need now. Analysis is best left to historians, once we are far enough away to get some perspective.

As I said yesterday morning, IMO it's a bad job, but we need to make the best of it.
Well, the country has chosen

Good, high turnout, too.

Let's hope it turns out better than I'm expecting and that the current crash is only short-term. For all our sakes.

Doing a symphonic, extended version of King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table at the O2. Very good indeed.

At the other end of the scale, the Virginmarys yesterday were also excellent.

Stone Free festival has had a lot of good bands.

One of the most overused phrases in football commentary/punditry.

Looks like the Donald Trump circus is coming to the UK the day after the referendum.

Go away, we'll be busy.
Any of you lot on here?

Norwich fans singing "Ipswich Town, we're coming for you" - bring it on, we're due some revenge!
Second highest finish in 11 seasons

Fourth highest since relegation.

I disagree.

A big factor has been the removal of the dominant behemoth of Sir Alex Ferguson's Manchester United. They were either champions or runners-up in 18 out of the 21 Prem seasons he was in charge (came 3rd in the other three).

Also Chelsea and Wenger's Arsenal have staggered. If Guardiola and Conte have a hard time adjusting to English football, and Wenger continues to struggle, the opening will still be there.

One heck of a ball in from Kenlock for Varney's goal. Long range, swerving to just the right place in front of the goal.
A little comparison table
at 11:26 29 Apr 2016

People going on about how long we've been 'stuck' in the Championship and how marvellous other clubs are that have been both above and below us in that time.

Here is a table showing the average position in the English football system of all the teams in the current Championship over the whole period since we were relegated back into it in 2002. We're pretty much on a par with many of our direct rivals (the likes of Burnley, Derby, Cardiff), tho we lose out to those teams who have only recently come down following extended stays in the Prem (e.g. Fulham, Bolton). We're a lot better off than Brighton or Hull, however.

Edit: Not including this season, obviusly.

Well, I did point out beforehand

that both teams are very strong defensively.

My Boro-supporting mate is highly nervous about their final games.
