Surely we can't have 3300

If that stand is only 2500?

You couldn't make it up

Despite the route from Ipswich to London being via Newbury Park and the central line, which runs all the way to Shepherds Bush (meaning ABSOLUTELY no reason to get off at Liverpool Street) some people are STILL going for a beer at Hamilton Hall before the match.

Question re: renting/deposits/contracts
at 10:05 31 Jan 2016

Situation is thus - I live with mate A but I am aiming to move out of the joint-tenancy and another mate (mate B) take my place. Contract is up on the 13th of March and our landlord has offered another 6 months as per the original terms (for me and mate A). All three of us are happy with our ingenious plan but have no idea whether it's legally/contractually a possibility:

1. I move out on that date.
2. Mate B takes my place and lives with mate A.
3. My name is replaced by my mate B on the new contract moving forwards.
4. My half of the current deposit (1x months rent) is transferred in name to mate B.
5. Everything is hunky dory.

The above works out better than a new contract/deposit rigmarole for all of us for various reasons, but we've no idea if it can be done easily.

Winter colds/man-flu
at 20:48 27 Jan 2016

This winter, despite being so bloody mild, has been the worst for colds that I can remember. I've started feeling awful again today, having already had at least 3 or 4 3-5 day bouts. Winding me up now.

Anyone else been as susceptible this winter?

Precis of yesterday
at 15:26 24 Jan 2016

I maintain that Birmingham is a weird city, in terms of layout, inhabitants, pubs, everything.

I thought we were unlucky and overall we are probably a better side than them, albeit they took their chances well yesterday, so fair play to them. Knudsen continues to worry me, he really does look bang average. I still feel that we'll probably do enough over the course of the season to finish 5th or 6th.

Great support throughout despite being behind, so well done to our following. Keep Right On is definitely one of my favourite football songs and I can imagine it being quite a spectacle when the place is full and rocking.

Jay Tabb is a friendly bloke, he was on my train back and allowed me a good ten minute conversation which, considering I had had a few drinks, was kind of him. It got weird when we ended up on the same tube at Euston, he probably thought I was following around London.

p.s. Lucan, seems The Bullring Tavern has been done up since you last went.

As part of my new job
at 20:01 21 Jan 2016

I have to occasionally work with Govt. and Public Sector bodies. My current role is 3-4 months in a secure site in London. I must say I'm very impressed by the security. Whilst my pass is being processed it's Airport Security to get in (and get back in, if I go out for lunch), and escorted everywhere (including to the toilet cubicle). It's a little unnerving having a huge BOMB SHELTER sign under the one for the bogs though.

Test Match Day 2 Thread
at 10:04 15 Jan 2016

Random observations...

I really like Compton at 3. I think he can comfortably do the job we need there - solid, slow scoring, Trott-esque 'frustrater'. Slight bias as I remember fondly his batting in that tour of India (of which I watched every ball whilst at Uni).

The pitch has hardened as expected, some ludicrous carry and bounce off a good-to-full length. Should suit all their seamers but plenty of promise for Finn and Broad in the second innings.

All set up for a great test match.

99 year old Ipswich Spitfire Pilot honoured by the French
at 14:50 14 Jan 2016

http://www.eadt.co.uk/news/france_honours_wartime_bravery_of_ipswich_spitfire_pi

Hero. Lived 4 doors down until I was 21 and my parents moved out to North Suffolk. We were only recently musing that he had probably sadly passed on, so I'm delighted he's still going at 99.

A brilliant character and genuinely hilarious bloke too. My old man used to go round to drink his homemade 'beer' and would have a hangover for days. He also came into my old primary school on numerous occasions and we were spellbound by his stories.

Having gone through loads of razors, I recently signed up to this as it saves me time and effort - great quality stuff and really reasonably priced as well. Anyone wants to get in on the act, I've got a referral link for £10 off the first order, so it would only be £4 for 6 blades and the handle.
