Warpaint...
at 11:42 27 Mar 2017

Watching some of the BBC Radio 6 Music Festival on iPlayer last night, I saw the Warpaint set and liked it. I wondered how I've not come across them before, and googled them to find that they've actually been together since 2004. I'll have to look out some more of their stuff now.

Who else have you stumbled across that have been around for quite a while without ever entering your consciousness?

UPDATE ON OLIVER...
at 13:14 23 Mar 2017

In amongst all the moaning/despondency and general disappointment with the club, and people deciding to stop going to any more games, as well as the upsetting awful situation in London yesterday, I'm pleased to be able to give some very good news...

I had a call from Oliver's Dad on Tuesday with the results from the scans he underwent last Friday and on Monday, and the news they were given was brilliant.

He has asked me to post the following:

Result of scans: There is no evidence of reoccurrence.

It's the best possible outcome we could have expected.

Oliver and family would like to thank everyone on TWTD and your messages helped get us through some horrid moments.

We can't wait to lead the team out and cheer on the boys x




That will be on Easter Monday - against Newcastle. It would be great to have a full stadium to cheer on Oliver as he leads the team out and show that as a bunch of fans, we can fully support something when we're given reason to do so. So, for those that have said they don't want to go to any more games this season, could you perhaps make one exception, and make that day a day to remember for years to come... Do it for Oliver...!

A couple of days away...
at 13:11 22 Mar 2017

Apologies for posting this again, but with only a couple of days to go (it's this Friday evening), would be good if there were any more teams wanting to join in, as could still do with some more.

After the success of the Children in Need Quiz Night that KJ organised at the Dove Street Inn (which raised over £500 of a total of £760.23 with a cake sale the following day), she's now doing another one for Red Nose Day on Friday 24th March.

Anyone interested, the details are shown on the flyer below. The intention is to start the quiz at 7.30pm, so the 7.00pm time shown should hopefully allow people to get organised with their teams and settled (having been to the bar, obviously) ready to get going with the quiz on time.

There were a few teams that included TWTDers last time, and I think those that came would agree it was a good evening, so hopefully this one should be as well.

If you want to either contact KJ directly on the number shown on the flyer, or PM me on here, and I can let her know, but would be great if there were a few teams from here competing for a bit of friendly rivalry.

I really don't know what to think...
at 10:35 17 Mar 2017

As I've often posted previously. I decided last summer to take up a season ticket again, having made it to 22 games the season before, I thought, OK, I will miss a few games because of seeing my son every other Saturday, but the games I go to, we usually go as a family, so I went ahead and got one rather than doing as I had previously when I paid per game for the ones I could make.

This season, I have missed 3 home games due to being with my son, as I shifted it by a week when the fixtures came out, as I would've otherwise missed I think it was 9 games, so it has worked out beneficial for me to have a season ticket. The kids tickets for £10 enabled us to take Yasmin and a friend's son regularly, and admittedly we did have one extra so that the weekends when the youngest son is at home we could upgrade to an under 16 ticket, but know that we had seats all together. This wasn't 'exploiting' the system to my mind, but we did it just for practicality with a complicated situation making sure that we could all sit together when we go as a family.

If we renewed blindly in the same way, it would cost us an extra £120 plus the adult increases over and above what we have paid this season. With this loyalty scheme, I know we would get some of that credited back towards next season's ticket (the premise that this season's tickets could work out as little as £4 is slightly inaccurate, given that the cost doesn't change, but people could choose to spend some in the club shop or save it towards next season with these credits, so it is more next season's tickets that 'could' work out cheaper).

How much we would get back in this way is difficult to know. We do often take Yasmin to evening games, but not to all of them, so immediately that will reduce the amount we would get back. We never take the friend's son to evening games, and whereas we were happy to pay £10 for his season ticket, to commit £50 to take him means we can't really carry that on. With the youngest being away at school during the week, again, wouldn't make evening games, and some weekends he's in Leicester, so wouldn't make enough games to warrant paying out the £50 for the 'spare' ticket as well as the upgrade per game, so we'll have to just pay on a per game basis for the ones he comes to and hope we can have a seat near our season ticket seats for him - not ideal, not knowing they'd be all together.

As we pay by direct debit, we possibly wouldn't notice the increases too much in reality spread across the year, but it's just the knowledge that they've gone up despite the entertainment side of things being poor, and the fact we won't be able to easily attend as a family and bring another friend's son with us as we have done, with the changes that have been made, that is the sad thing. The claim that they have been done to encourage the younger fans to come to Portman Road does leave a little bit of a sour taste in the mouth, when it has actually meant that we're not so easily able to do that.

I will renew if we both do, but I don't know if KJ will - she was wavering a bit before this announcement and not discussed since, but if she doesn't, I'd have to decide if I was going to, and committing to taking Yasmin to the games as well on my own, given I'm not here every other week.

Certainly something we're going to have to think about before committing to renewing, but seems a shame to have to do so, when there could've been decent incentives made to not even have to think about it.

(apologies for long post, but just feeling a little bit disappointed this morning.)

And the club set to take up the option for another year and probably being offered a longer term deal... Has there been any further progress with the similar situation regarding Luke Chambers?
