Someone on here a few months back (possibly even you) aptly described this look as going "Cock Out" which still makes me chuckle whenever I see one in the wild.
|Covid passports pubs/ nightclubs/ restaurants|
at 15:53 5 Apr 2021
Not against passports in principle if they increase vaccine take up but only once everyone has been offered one. I know Covid isn’t risk free for young people but I doubt we would have put the last year of restrictions in place if the whole population had the risk profile of under 30s.
Young people have suffered the brunt of the economic pain (and will continue to pay the costs for decades) alongside the social hardship we have all had to endure mainly to protect the vulnerable and elderly. This was clearly a necessary sacrifice for all of us but it would be pretty raw deal to then also see those same elderly and vulnerable people (who are rightly prioritised for a vaccine) enjoying preferential status for social restrictions.
Flip side of this I suppose is the desire to get the economy going again ASAP even if it isn’t equitable as this will benefit young people in the long run also. Would expect this to go hand in hand with a big upswing in breaches to Covid rules though.
|Do anyone own any Gamestop shares?|

Haven't been following GME so can't (and anyway wouldn't) advise on what to do in your specific situation.
However, as a very much amateur investor who has dabbled in crypto currencies I have found the hardest part by far to be knowing when to sell and more often than not I have held on for too long thinking the down trend will bounce the minute I sell.
My two pence would be that the regret of selling too early but still making a decent profit feels a lot better than the regret of having missed the opportunity to bank a win.
My only exception to this is one long-term holding that I can afford to lose 100% of but has the small chance of turning into a life changing sum and even that one I am stressing about my exit strategy down the line.
|Out of contract Players|
at 15:46 4 Feb 2021
Does anyone know if the one year options count as an existing or new contract for the purposes of contributing towards the salary cap. Asking in the context of players with existing contracts which currently exceed the average and are therefore counted at a lower rate for cap purposes per the introductory measures?

I'm honestly struggling to think of any built since the 90's that I rate.
|We need a striker, simple as|
at 11:44 28 Jan 2021
Genuine question - our main issue is clearly a lack of goals but does that honestly change with a new striker (at least from the realistic options / quality available in our position)?
Our shots on target stats are woeful with it common (gut feeling please correct me if data proves otherwise) for us not to have a single shot OT until well into the second half.
I get your point about working within this constraint by increasing the likelihood our rare shots go in but surely the fundamental change needs to be an ability to create more scoring opportunities? Not sure a new striker will have much greater success in the long-run over the options we already have here unless the root cause is addressed.
The players we have in right now may never make it to the ITFC hall of fame but their historic career performances suggest they aren't all cr@p for this level. To me, this indicates that the issue is deeper than individual player ability and a new striker is more likely to end up succumbing to the same problem.
Appreciate this is hardly dazzling fresh insight and essentially lands on needing a different coaching perspective whereas your OP was about pragmatic solutions based on the assumption PL isn't going anywhere. As such... Sod it. It's not my money and maybe it works wonders. Anything must be better than this???

I was so excited when I found out I had a clean sweep for England at Wembley. Couldn't stop watching the footage of the crowds at Euro 96.
Clearly will still be grateful if I get any opportunity to watch these games live but 30% crowds all sitting down and 10 seats apart throughout the stadium doesn't have quite the same level of anticipation.
at 14:15 21 Jan 2021
I am in the same position as you with tickets. Was a relief to see that we will be offered refunds if the fixture is moved more than 50km as before that I was struggling to decide whether to cancel before the end of the month or not.
|Sounds like the Ipswich vaccine roll out is going to be good|

Ivry street I believe had a separate unit of some sort (minor injuries?) which closed at the end of last year pre COVID so they have a pretty good setup to segregate anything COVID related. Not a huge surgery though.
|Is anyone else a complete lightweight when it comes to driving?|
at 12:17 28 Sep 2020
I had a roughly 2 year gap between passing and then doing any real driving again. When I bought my first car I had to google how to put it in reverse after pulling front first into a bay space at the shops on the way home from the seller.
Someone once told me you’re still learning for the first 10,000 miles which turned out spot on for me. The day after googling the gears I started a job that involved 15k miles solo that year with a lot of motorways and this was the perfect sink or swim.
That year I had one very minor prang and a few more ‘cor that was close’ moments along with many navigational errors (including turning off motorways on the sat nav without realising and then wondering why it kept taking me on the north circular at 8 am and separately an 11 hour Odyssey on the M25 which involved a shortcut that turned out to be a dirt track!)
Start of the year was incredibly stressful and that caused the most mistakes as you would expect. Got noticeably better after a month or so and by the end of the year I loved driving and still do. Haven’t owned a car now for almost 5 years so only drive a few times a year but find it always now comes back pretty quickly.
Good luck OP - I’m sure you’ll be fine and try to channel your inner Corporal Jones.
|Cheap way to get train tickets to London tomorrow night|

Happy to help. I’ve never personally used it so just make sure it is does what you need before buying. Friends visiting me have used it without any issues recently though. Think it’s online only.
|Cheap way to get train tickets to London tomorrow night|

Google “greater anglia london evening out ticket”.
Should probably work for you As I think it’s any train from ipswich to Liv Street after 1400 and then return on any between 20.30-23.30 but check that what you need fits the bill.
£23 return with no railcard and I believe railcards can be applied to bring it down.
Needs to be booked the day before travel at the latest.
Hope this helps
|Match day tickets|
at 10:18 1 Aug 2019
I’ve been cash on the day since they stopped upping the prices but it’s not really any skin off my nose to go back to buying in advance.
However, whilst this on its own is not a huge deal, just like the £1.75 on its own isn’t a huge deal and the rubbish catering isn’t a huge deal, all the little cr@p decisions that make supporting town slightly worse or harder do add up and will put some people off.
I understand when revenue takes a nose dive a business has to look at lots of marginal reductions because the big cost saving measures have usually already been taken. However it does feel like the club continually seems to shoot itself in the foot to save peanuts. It’s not just been happening since relegation either - for example the over 60 tickets PR masterclass.
Even all of the above would have been a bit more palatable if the club had just been up front and said we’re doing this because we’re skint and if we go back up we’ll look to improve once we can afford it again. It’s obvious this is why it’s happening now but being open tends to buy you a lot of slack.
There are plenty of clubs in the pyramid far poorer than us that manage to avoid stupid things to annoy the fans. There are also plenty of clubs who have issues far worse than we do and when you look at Bury & Bolton ME isn’t so bad and I do believe he wants what is best for the club. That’s what makes things like this so frustrating is that they are issues that can be resolved with better planning or clearer more honest communication with the fans.
Back on topic. The club MUST make sure people aren’t queuing for hours with the new setup or the will genuinely lose last minute support. Then again, maybe the club has decided this is a price worth paying to push those who do come towards print at home tickets. If so, fine but be open about it.

Has this been confirmed anywhere or still (not improbable) speculation?
|Sky red button today? |
at 12:07 1 Jan 2019
Does anyone know why I can’t select the town game to record on my sky Q box today? Doing what I normally do by selecting the main sky match on the football channel and then it gives all the other options on the red button to record but our game isn’t there?
Are we on another TV channel today?

Bit off topic but seems like the right place to ask. I've got a couple of weeks off in between jobs and was thinking about trying to learn golf. Have been to a range with mates a couple of times but would be lucky to hit one ball in three and never further than 50 odd yards. I was thinking about booking on to an intensive beginners course where you have about 15 hours coaching over 2-4 days.
Any thoughts on whether this is likely to have much success or if I am wasting my money trying to speed up something that just needs lots of time would be appreciated.
I'm not looking to be any good but would like to be able to play a casual social/work round without embarrassing myself.
Tips or recommendations would be great.
