Mick's previous over performance has made a rod for his own back....
at 10:42 14 Jan 2017

The fans think we should be in or around the top 6, despite not competing financially with half the division.

Evans thinks this level of investment is enough to compete in this league.

Mick is stuck in the middle, and clear cracks are starting to show in relationships. Mick has protected Evans from criticism of lack of investment - but as the intensity increases on him why should he continue to do so?
Really good interview with Chambers...

....really enlightening to what is going on in the camp, and his contract situation.

A must read
Little boy's first game tomorrow...

...a bit pointless because he is so young - but all my family are aware so missus is in SBR Suite with me so easier to bring him along than arrange childcare - as he can sit inside if struggling with it.

Hopefully it will be as good a game and win as my first game - also against Blackburn - just over 25 years ago - maybe he'll see (or sleep through...) another Dozzell winner?!

Young defender from Sudbury for the U18s
Great management by Mick to get the draw vs Lincoln...
at 16:08 10 Jan 2017 us a money spinning replay on the box.

Evans will be happy, this will move Mick further away from the sack and put a bit more money in the kitty.

When did TWTD change to have more than 25 posts on each page? (n/t)

Double barrelling names when you get married...
at 14:15 10 Jan 2017 this now a thing? Seem to note it happening relatively often now.

What happens if you already have a double barrelled name?

I personally wouldn't have been happy changing my name, and wouldn't have been happy if wife didn't take it - it's just normal surely?

Have really enjoyed this series - a return to form after last years dreadful Xmas special.

Anyone watching it?

...need to seriously increase ahead of the big game on Saturday
A number of fans now saying they won't renew if Mick is here next season.....
at 08:43 9 Jan 2017 matter what he does between now and May.

And then criticise McCarthy for being stubborn in the same breath.

Gets it pretty spot on, what sort of fan lambasts a young player when he is fronting up at a Q&A or whatever it is too?

The problem with 'Millenials'*.....
at 08:28 5 Jan 2017

THis is an interesting video about problem with youngsters today. Everything is about instant gratification, and instant success that for things that end up really mattering like job satisfaction and relationship building they/we find it so much harder because it is so alien to them.

Makes some interesting points about using phones less and interracting with people more. Over the last few weeks I've tried to do this - realise I end up having pointless arguments on here, Twitter or Whatsapp when i should be doing things with my wife and little boy so need to try and cut down - because I am addicted to it in reality.

Interesting comments about how it isn't their/our fault, it's just the society we've been brought up in now - but it is leading to more depressions in younger people and just unhappiness as they are constantly trying to measure up to their peers.

*I hate the term millenial, although probably am one at the older end of the scale

1 point in 4 games since they sacked Rowett, dropped from being outside the play offs on GD to 13th and 7 points away from them.

This is what I fear would happen if Mick went - we have a squad in his mould and I just don't see someone coming in and hitting the ground running and pushing us up the table playing sexy football.

Birmingham look to be wasting a season where they had a good shot of the play offs, will they come back stronger next year? Who knows - but I can see why Evans sticks with stability rather than taking a risk.
Varney gone
at 13:01 4 Jan 2017

has to be a striker close to signing to let him go.
If we haven't managed to sign a striker by the Blackburn game....
at 08:17 4 Jan 2017 the very latest you really have to question the club.

Obviously still 10 days to do it - but there should have been someone lined up on January 1st ready to sign on the dotted line.

We were allegedly bidding 7 figure fees for strikers at the end of the window, and now have had 4 months to get something sorted and bar a couple of links there is nothing happening it seems.

Admittedly Mick tends to play transfer dealings close to his chest, but as each day passes it becomes more and more frustrating for the supporters who can see that we need one desperately.
Did anyone notice that Kenlock kept his place ahead of Knudsen yesterday? (n/t)
