It's July 1982 and Bobby Robson has been snatched away for the England job - what if the Cobbolds had gone to Aberdeen and persuaded Alex Ferguson to become the new Ipswich manager? How would the fortunes of Ipswich and Manchester United have changed, would it have had any bearing on how and when the Premier League was formed?
trailing tonights game with bullet points they state that 'the Blues have the best conversion rate in the Championship, scoring with 22% of their shots'. Informative, given that both teams first choice colour is blue and both Ipswich and Birmingham are known as The Blues (as are Chelsea, Portsmouth, Peterborough, Rangers and quite a few others). I know we are the one and only, true blues but....(four dot ellipse for exasperation).
So, I'm off to attempt Ben Nevis and then, if I have any energy left, to see if the Ben Nevis Bar in Fort William are showing the game despite them not answering my email asking about it.
Dizzie Rascal may have taken it to number one but that was six years ago, nowadays it is getting to be code for 'somethings happening but I don't know what it is' or 'somethings happened but I'm not going to tell you about it'.
We should not expect to be told the minutiae of Bart's private life or why Chambers felt he could play on with a migraine, a manager has the right to be selective (otherwise the next opposition have loaded dice) in the truths he tells us and McCarthy tells us more than most and better than most, just feel that he is taking refuge in the language of lads culture a bit too much at the moment.
Still nothing other than an acknowledgement of receipt regarding my email to the BBC. Taylor is still in our squad but now it is just him and Henly missing squad numbers, sometime in the last twenty four hours or so they have numbered Alabi, Oar and Malarczyk. It could just be a BBC error but are there circumstances where a club retains a players signature even after his contract has expired until he signed by another club?
So Tony Blair guaranteed Corbyn would win the Labour leadership by saying don'y vote for Corbyn, now Govie has said don't elect Corbyn as PM (although I am looking forward to Glasgow Blue's apopolectic reaction when it, as now seems inevitable, happens).
C'mon Alex Neil, help Mick out by suggesting that Tommy Smith should never be made team captain and first name on the team sheet.
He's still in the Town squad on the BBC website! Despite my email to the BBC two days ago!! My latest theory is that, having nowhere else to go and no income as no other club has signed him, he has resorted to the classic occupy a building by night and lay low by day tactic. Next time you are in Planet Blue just tear your eyes away from the merchanise for a minute and look upwards, see if there are any signs of a sleeping bag on top of the air-conditioning ducts.
