'... demand clear Brexit plan from May'
at 10:21 29 Sep 2016

Good God have some patience people!

We're trying to do something which has never been attempted before, nobody knows the ground rules (essentially there aren't any), several of the main players either won't talk properly or are saying things at cross-purposes, the Referendum only took place three months ago and she's been PM for just 11 weeks, meanwhile still having a country to run. It's not like we have hundreds of millions of pounds floating about to throw at the problem or large numbers of spare staff in the Civil Service.

At the same time, the government has got to get the best possible deal in something which is not only fiendishly complex, but vital to our economic health going forwards. There are layers of politics, resentment, economic and political theory to work through. There are those with a deliberate aim of making this as slow and careful as possible, to prevent the whole thing flying apart. 27 other countries all have their own agendas.

It took us 10 years to join the original EEC, it's going to be a more than six-month job to leave its far more integrated successor.

What is the bl00dy rush, anyway?

Gah! Rant over.

Not unrelated to the earlier thread on the history of violence.

"Anthropoid" at the cinema. Rather intense, not for the squeamish. Very good film, tho.

Funny what difference the TV makes

From most of the Sky-watchers on here, you'd think last night was worse than the home game against Rotherham last season. Whereas what I saw at the ground was far better.

Gone was the slow lumping from left-back into a crowd of players, the delayed throw-ins. We were passing the ball, Ward has exceptional energy, even Douglas has become active. Knudsen's long throws were actually working, creating opportunities. We still lack penetration in on goal and did not make ourselves enough chances. But we were the better side for a fair chunk of that match, constantly pushed Reading back (they were reduced to passing between full-backs and 'keeper for extended periods).

Didn't think any of the three penalties were particularly justified. First was ball-to-hand from about three yards. The second (ours) was very soft. The final one was down to a situation caused by the Ref's own protracted fannying around with a corner at the end of the match.

Despite what I said last night, a draw would have been a fair result. A loss was definitely against the run of play.

Furious negativity
at 22:05 29 Aug 2016

In the League, we've had one really bad half, which lost us a game. Only two teams have lost fewer than ourselves, just four others lost the same number.

We are undefeated at home, 6th in that table (balanced for points per game played).

We've signed a cracking player in Grant Ward.

We won, even after Murphy's departure.

What is the problem, exactly?

I was pleased that in Knudsen we have a full-back not afraid to have a shot on goal. Today I am very pleased that he is one of those!

I'm afraid I don't quite understand
at 22:31 12 Aug 2016

the paroxysms of rage at the re-signing of Varney.

We need some quick cover in the striking department - for the bench, if nothing else.

He is instantly available, knows the club, the manager and the set-up. He has played in this team before, very recently. He is liable to be inexpensive and is willing to take a short-term deal. A lot of us thought he did ok in his first stint with Ipswich (when he wasn't returning from a major injury).

He is evidently not intended to be a long-term answer to our striking needs, as it's only a four and a half month deal.

I fail to see the serious downside which is causing some people to go off the deep end.
