Another Film thread.. Desert Island (DVD) Disc
at 09:46 17 Nov 2016

After the number of film threads I though I'd ask this question, which was asked of me a few weeks ago.

If you are stranded on a desert Island with a TV and DVD player, what 5 movies would you take with you (assume reliable power supply to run said appliances)

Without too much thought I blurted out these 5

Back to the Future I
Back to the Future II
Back to the Future III
Castaway
Cars

I'm sure with a little more thought my list would look a little different, but what would your 5 be? *Only rule, Movies only. No Series Boxsets.

Football badges
at 14:42 10 Nov 2016

There have been a number of clubs changing their badges in recent years and Brentford have officially announced their new design today... (There certainly committing to the Bees nickname)

http://www.getwestlondon.co.uk/sport/football/football-news/brentford-new-badge-

I think it looks quite good, but the new Man City one is a bit carp and the Sheff Wendy one made me double take last weekend, very unusual.

When do you reckon we'll get round to changing ours.. Whihc I'll predict now to be a rampaging white horse on a blue circular background

Rooney to start on the bench..
at 14:39 10 Oct 2016

Is the main news article on the BBC Sport website.. Why do people care so much (I get the irony in this post)

No player, captain or not should be immune to being dropped or rested and the media have made a royal pigs ear of all this by constantly holding him to different standards.

fwiw, I would drop him, but certainly don't get the big hubbub of the past 6 months of where and whether he should play..

A Sensible FA Chairman?
at 11:11 7 Sep 2016

After the circus that was Greg Dyke, I haven't really paid any attention since Greg Clarke got appointed, but he makes some very interesting points here..

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/football/2016/09/06/england-clock-counting-down-to-wo

My favourite being this paragraph (something that I have harped on about for some time, that solutions can be found when looking at other sports)

Clarke revealed that he was already canvassing opinion from within and beyond the game – including from Great Britain’s Olympic set-up – about how to give England the best possible chance of success.

"We’re trying to bring in best-in-class expertise from all sports to give us a bigger view, because football doesn’t have all the answers," he said.

“And one thing we know about sport is the top sport 20 years ago may not be the top sport in 20 years’ time. We have no right written in stone that allows us to be the national game."

ROI to beat France?
at 09:16 23 Jun 2016

I have a sneaky suspicion that Ireland may well go and knock the hosts out.

If nothing more than to inflict some justice for the Henry handball that gave France the win in the 2010 world cup qualifying play off.

Plus, it would be incredible to see an England Vs Ireland match in a major competition

Fringe Player... (?)
at 14:24 21 Apr 2016

Who is this "Fringe player" that Mick has said he will look at playing this Saturday?..

“I may have a look at one, possibly, and the view would be that if he’s involved in the squad and he’s got to play at some stage we need to know [if he's up to it] and it’s a good game to find out, that’s for sure"

With McDonnell being offered a new contract, it might well be him (also with midfield being a glaringly obvious issue this season)

Other contenders:
Emmanuel
Kenlock
Digby

Will be interesting to see 1) who it is.. 2) whether they take the opportunity

Warnock the best manager in the league?
at 16:53 18 Apr 2016

Discuss?

http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/36074705?intlink_from_url= http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/live/35720533&link_location=live-reporting-story

You can't really argue with his record, or his honesty.. it's very refreshing to see a manager accept their 'level' by saying he didn't really enjoy the premier league and accepts "that the Championship is his level,"

Wouldn't be surprised to see him managing someone else next season (probably battling at the other end of the table)

Cycling Herbets
at 16:08 18 Feb 2016

Is anyone taking part in the Suffolk Sunrise 100.. or has done so in the past?

I used to be a (fairly) regular commuter cyclist, doing 13 miles each way across the Leicestershire countryside, though haven't cycled seriously since 2014 due to chronic laziness

Is this event any good? Worth giving it a go?

Lack of National Media Coverage...
at 14:57 5 Feb 2016

Are we (as fans) that bothered?

I'm quite used to it. We aren't a particularly fashionable club and we haven't got any interesting side plots. I remember the circus of being 'Roy Keane's Ipswich' and am relatively happy being under the radar now.

It is fair to say that Derby, QPR, Hull, Leeds et al get the majority of the coverage in the league. The truth of it is, we don't have enough of a national 'following' or enough people who hate us. Everyone seems to be indifferent toward us. Which is not a terrible thing in my view

#mybest9minutes
at 09:52 23 Sep 2015

After Lewandowski's heroics, BBC sport have asked "what has been your best 9 minutes in sport?" using the #mybest9minutes

Some humorous sexual references in there, but thought I'd throw the question out on this board to see what the TWTD public would come up with

Staff training assistance
at 15:32 22 Jun 2015

Just been informed that tomorrow I will be in some form of staff training (of stage presence) and have to present for 5 minutes on any subject of my choice.

I believe it is very much nothing to do with what I say, but in fact how I say it and my delivery.. But I have since been completely stumped as to what I should go with..

My current thoughts are: Framing, the Roy Keane years of ITFC or the plot of Game of Thrones seasons 1 - 5

Any suggestions would be welcome, but thought I would also ask what others on here would go for, if put on the spot. 5 minutes, Any subject. Go..

Tunnicliffe ?
at 10:36 19 Dec 2013

His loan ends on the 2nd January (I believe) so what is the general consensus about him?

Should we extend... (or even look to buy him) or trade him in and look for a more forward thinking player on loan?

Personally think he's a good little player with a decent future (though not at the top table with Man U) and had his best spell playing down the left..

More of a 'one for the future' so will be interesting to see how it pans out
