Just a quick message to you fine ladies and gents I've not been around for a little while and thought I would make sure and say good tidings as I won't get another chance to do so before going abroad again
My work sees me travel far and wide and some times in not so technology blessed locations. I am going to be spending the next few months working in South America.
I wanted to wish you all good tidings as when I'm in charming suffolk talking with all of you and TWTD is a massive part of what makes home ... home.
Patricia is a name were going to hear a lot about in the up coming months but it always mystifies me why they have such sweet names. Surely Hurricane Hardasnails would be more fitting given the ferocity of the storms
I am also of the beliefe that David McGoldrick is our best player over all; However I have noticed on many games when he starts he can get lost a bit in the second half especially if things don't transpire well or we remain in a deadlock.
Looking beyond his obvious injury prone nature I believe Mick trusts McGoldrick to be the player we need to make a later impact in the game, which is all good and well, but the way we've been (especially at home) in the first half of late, his introductions are not working that way.
If this is the case I would rather see him play the first 45-60, make an impact in the game to give us momentum which the team will build on later.
McG and Murphy need to start together, that is my honest opinion, then Freddy Sears is there to replace McG later on, with Pitman apt to come on for Muphy.
This philosophy of starting slow and going strong to end with just isnt working. If we could go in half time 1-2 up then play our midfield bog fest (as the first half of Bristol and Huddersfield was) we might actually be able to kill games better.
Maybe Marcus Evans was inspired by Paul Jewell's long term strategy so much he didn't give Mick as much financial backing as he did RK and PJ for 3 years to save his pennies for a do or die season once he trusted Mick and he got the wage budget under control?
In a way we have a stable squad as such, that many (including myself) have resigned ourselfs into doubting the chances for promotion this season. I am not irate about "Ming's Millions" as I can see how it's being reinvested, and respect it's not in the way many wanted it to be done.
Truth is I very much doubt RK or PJ had a wage structure in place, there were a few players I expect on massive wages, which meant Clegg had to try and get many in on a pittance and often failed.
I would not be suprised if next season, provided management stays the same and we still have a decent number of players in who reduce the need to loan, if ME digs a bit deeper and lets Mick bring in a Marquee signing or 2: and at the end of this season we will have a clearer idea on what spots those are.
I may be dreaming here, but I think it's very possible ME is waiting until the time is right to make an RK/PJ financial investment in the team again.
There is something really worrying about the way the team are playing right now regardless of poor results. Such a shame being in this dark corner after such a bright start. C'est la vie however - hopefully something will change soon
Assuming Penfold (Sepp) and Danger mouse (Platini) don't manage to pull some amazing bit of magic (they likely will) do you think the new reformed fifa will do anything better for the game. I have to think it would be a long shot - after all they kept voting for Penfold.
What would a better fifa do? (Other than sell the world cup to the highest bidder and continue using a wacky world rankings system)
I just got in from my long weekender to Tromso/Oslo. Im not a spiritual person in any way, but I must say some of the fjords, night skies, countryside and sheer natural beauty of Northern Norway did leave me thinking surely science couldnt have done all this alone.
I truely recommend this experience to anyone- not your average weekend in the sun, but it is a cyclist/kayaker's paradise.
I'm setting off soon to the airport to go kayaking and looking for green glitter dust in the sky. I'm going to be in the Tromso region so if anyone has any experience around that part of places worth visiting that would be really interesting.
After this trip I won't be able to afford any more bags for life l; salted caramel; or half and half scarfs but I think it will be worth it in the long run.
Anyway I'm posting this on here as I don't really have any friends any more since I defriended anyone on Facebook for being the 25th poster in my feed and I thought I really could do with raising my profile on the boards by disclosing I'm going to be on a choo choo plane
Sainsburys have actually made this work quite well, they have increased the sturdyness of the bags, and opperate it like a bag for life scheme, When it gets knackered they replace it for free. I cant imagine the others do it much different. Pretty good method of making it worth it.
So seems as my week has been a mix of emotions in regards to etiquette, the conversation came up about putting milk in one's tea. Apparently those who drink white tea are subject to quite a different experince based on the colour of the top.
I was told silver top is an ideal milk for those who have no sugar as sweetness of the milk is the perfect balance, red top is the way to go for sugar users, and blue top is what people who have sweetners use as it's best for those who don't really like anything real in life- arguably grass clippings are used for teabags too.
I personally go with red top for everything as I like to enjoy the milk experience but not feel guilty about it- though now I am very confused in light of the discussion had.
