The International Break - Huzzah!
at 08:54 8 Oct 2013

As I too have an international break ahead of me, that it has coincided with the football world one is a good thing. Now I won't need to go on desperate searches for English newspapers just to keep up with how the boys have done.

Simply are bargaining chip to put pressure upon FIFA? Or a serious threat?

Given the scoreline
at 20:26 1 Oct 2013

BBCs possession stats look a bit bizarre Derby 62% Ipswich 38%. Either they are wrong or we have really really been making possession count.

fat people - ever feel like you are being ripped off?
at 18:12 30 Sep 2013

I have seen tins of low fat coconut milk on sale in the supermarkets with three differences from full fat coconut milk

1. Less coconut
2. More water
3. Costs more

I'm not sure whether the marketing men should be applauded for successfully selling less for more, or they should be censured for ripping off people who are conerned about their weight.

Why don't we get penalties?
at 09:16 29 Sep 2013

Just watched the FLS and apparently David Nugent has scored 5 penalties this season. I don't think that we have been awarded a single one. Do we not create enough danger in the box?

Ian Crook
at 19:46 24 Sep 2013

was under the misapprehension that we got a fee for Ian Crook to go back to the budgies, but it seems not.

From The Grauniad

SPEEDY RETURNS (2)

Last week we looked at the players to make swift u-turns. And we've been pointed to a player whose about-face eclipses the 12 days between Jermaine Pennant's release and re-signing at Stoke City.

Daniel Ottolangui throws out the name of Norwich City stalwart Ian 'Chippy' Crook. He had joined the Canaries from Tottenham in 1986 and was a key part of the successful City side of Mike Walker in the early 90s. But by the summer of 1996 Walker was long gone and Crook was seeing out the final days of his contract at Carrow Road under Gary Megson. The midfielder was given a free transfer at the end of the 1995-96 season and agreed to sign for Ipswich Town. But then Megson was sacked, Walker returned and was immediately on the phone to his former charge. Crook agreed to return (or stay, depending on your point of view).

'It is true that I had agreed to go to Portman Road. But Norwich still held my registration when Mike came back and I soon had a phone call from him," said Crook. "I was on holiday at the time. With all due respect to Ipswich, I would never have wanted to leave Norwich if I knew Mike was returning. I was hoping and praying that I could stay when I heard the news."

Ipswich demanded FA action. "The matter has not been resolved,' said Ipswich's promotions manager Mike Noye in November of 1996. "We accept that Crook is a Norwich player but he is to be charged by the FA. We feel what he did was unethical. He was made a free agent by Norwich and signed for us. He declared himself a true Blue and we even had photographic sessions with him. Walker then came back and it was discovered that Crook still had two or three days outstanding on his old Norwich contract."

Crook denied he had signed contracts with both clubs. "Only an idiot would sign contracts for two clubs at the same time – and I'm certainly not an idiot," he told the Mirror. "I'd been given a free by Norwich. But when Mike Walker came back as manager he wanted to keep me and asked the League if it was OK to make a new offer. They said it was and were kept informed all the way through. This has only dragged on because Ipswich are involved – any other club and it would have been forgotten weeks ago."

Crook was eventually fined £250.

Emotional decision making
at 10:46 19 Sep 2013

Just got radio 4 on in the background and they are discussing emotional factors that contribute to the decisions that people make. There were some interesting snippets like men rate pictures of women as more attractive if they are on a red background, but here's the biggy - apparently referees are more likely to award penalties for teams playing in black. There was no supporting evidence for this statement, but taking it at face value just playing in a black strip could be something that swingsthe pendulum slightly in our favour. May the club bear this in mind when it comes to picking the next strip.
