Championship Football
at 11:33 14 Apr 2021

Well Reading anyway, 2019/2020 accounts show,
Reading 2019/20 accounts published. Headlines
Operating losses £43m
Wages 211% of revenue
Total accumulated losses £138m
Borrowings £87m
Furlough income £820k
Player signings £16m
Ave weekly wage £17,460
All this achieved was 14th place, while half ish was effected by Covid, it shows what financial backing is needed for the Championship, it also questions EFL sustainability.

Interesting article on Gillingham

Only club to not pay any agent fees at all, I fully agree with Paul Scally as well.

Another shocker of a game
at 17:06 5 Apr 2021

Beginning to think we should not have sacked Lambert, no shots on target, disorganised shambles in mid field, no goal threat up front. Town are in relegation form and manager looks clueless. ITFC sink to a new low.
FA Cup Semi finals to pilot return of large crowds
at 17:42 29 Mar 2021

Is this a good idea? With Wembley a nightmare to get to and from and always packed stations and trains, this could turn out to be a covid super spreader event.

The story by Phil on his return states he cannot play for the senior side, does this mean he can play for the U23's?
at 17:46 20 Mar 2021

Very poor set-up today, the midfield had no shape, when players were on the ball there were no options, James Norwood was isolated on his own all game. He took his goal well but for much of the game the Pompy CB's had a very easy game. Town were slow and predictable and the midfield were disorganised and looked like strangers who did not know what they were supposed to do. After those three games under Gill where we looked so strong, organised and threatening, I was positive we could kick on, but ever since Paul Cook has arrived Town have gone to pieces and look as poor if not worse than under Lambert.
Last night
at 10:00 17 Mar 2021

Another very poor performance and even worse we made an average side look very good.(IMO) When you look at last night and the Gillingham game there was a common factor, we were up against a side playing 3 - 5 - 2. The opposition wingbacks maintained a very high line which made it easy for them to over run our two defensive midfielders in front of the back four. Paul Cook needs to address what changes the team need to make to stop this, otherwise all teams will adopt this formation against us with inevitable results. It will be interesting what formations are played at Fratton Park on Saturday.
Has Lambert actually left?
at 21:54 16 Mar 2021

Very poor tactics from Paul Cook tonight, ball in the air far too much again, toothless up front again and no shape in midfield again. Hope we haven't got to put up with this sh1te every away game!
Matt Hancock & The Cock

pub in Thurlow, the landlord of which he does not really know very well at all.
I wondered why that picture of the pub that used to be on the wall of Matt Hancock's office on zoom calls had disappeared from view all of a sudden.
Understanding mRNA vaccines

Interesting read and gives a good understanding of the Covid vaccine and how it works.

In a study by the University of Oxford they found 218,000 Britons spend more than £1,800 a month on gambling, the project analysed the spending of 6.5 million Lloyds bank customers. While some will be able to sustain this, there will be many who can't, these are incredible levels of gambling.
Still More Brexit Chaos

School meals part 2
at 13:17 13 Jan 2021

Sir Keir just read out the government guidance for free school meals to the PM, current guidance published by the department for education is exactly the same as Chartwells provided. Government policy and recommendation is being carried out by Chartwells, why is this now deemed unacceptable by the same government that drew up the requirements for the meals in the first place?
Lockdown 3 New Music

New band for me are The Slow Readers Club, I am listening to their album build a tower, really like them. They would appeal to anyone who likes indie in general.

Another Dodgy Government deal
at 19:36 21 Dec 2020

Sorry if this was on earlier, VIP fast track system for businesses with connections to the government to be given PPE contracts, One PPE Medpro was in discussion for a contract before it even existed! "The contract had been under discussion “for a considerable time” before PPE Medpro was incorporated on 12 May, he said." How can a company be considered for a £200 million government contract before it is even incorporated?

Telephone/Broadband news
at 18:22 30 Nov 2020

Mildenhall telephone exchange has been closed to new exchange lines over a copper pair of wires being ordered, from now on it will be fibre to the premises and and an IP telephone delivered over the broadband, rather than the broadband delivered over a telephone line.

By this time next year all of Ipswich could well go the same way and everyone has ultra high speed broadband, and only have a landline if you want one. By 2025 most if not all telephone exchanges will be switched off. Well behind most of the World UK broadband speeds will finally get up to speed.

BT were stopped from installing fibre to premises in the late 70's early 80's, it has taken 40 years for the privatised BT to get back to where the UK was way back then.
Lockdown 1.0 - Following the Science
at 00:38 25 Nov 2020

Just watched this on BBC2, very sobering and quite scary how inept the government response was.

Puts into perspective losing a game of football (badly) and getting upset and angry about it.

It is well worth watching on catch up.
