L1 quality
at 22:38 18 Sep 2021

Based purely on watching the Quest highlights, so I appreciate that doesn't tell the whole story, but the quality of teams and the football they are playing seems to have gone up several notches in the last couple of seasons.

I remember watching the highlights last seasons, and time after time, team after team, you would see comedy defending leading to goals - not seeing that so much now, just confident, attractive, technical football from most teams.

Just an observation.

Other managers/pundits comments
at 13:07 12 Sep 2021

Just about every manager - after their team has played us (and won!) - heaps praise on Cook and the fantastic set of players we have here.

Now, I get they could be taking the proverbial, but they're right, Cook is the best manager in L1, based on previous achievements at other clubs, so either it's another case of the assistant manager being the key to success, or he just needs time to get it right....plus a decent experienced defensive coach.

It's been the worst possible start that any of us could have imagined, but I think the worst thing now would be to get rid of Cook. Get him a defensive coach and by Christmas we will be working our way up the table towards the POs or better - hopefully just as other teams suffer their own mid-season wobble.

I switched off the audio stream once they scored the 5th yesterday....
at 12:19 12 Sep 2021

I honestly thought they would score 10.

Did it get any better at all for the last 20-30 mins?

If there's any positive about yesterday, maybe it's that Bolton fans will finally stop going on about that semi-final game now.

Watching Kathy Burkes program on CH4, she was talking to this guy who manages a group of Tic Tokers, she asked him if he's ever had a proper job, he replied he was a footballer, had a scholarship at Ipswich.

Apple watch

Anyone got one of these, the latest (series 6) model? Any good?

Thinking about buying one for my son, it's his 18th in a few weeks. He runs and goes to the gym at least 4 times a week so figure this might be good for him, he hasn't got any device at the moment, just apps on an iphone 11.

They seem pricey, starting at £380-odd, whereas there are seemly decent ones (Fitbit Charge 4) for just over the £100 mark, so is it just a case of paying for the name with Apple, or is it just better/worth it?

Finally shaken off the flu...after 18 days
at 08:41 10 Apr 2021

Worst I'm ever had - normally its 5 or 7 days max for me, but this was a nasty one, maybe because there's less of it around?

Lesson learned, get the flu jab next winter.

aren't really helping, are they?

Changed managers a couple of times in the past 18 months or so, yet still not looking anything like top 2 material. Another 'big' club who should walk this league, eh?

Evans must be thinking, "What's the point in changing manager? No guarantees it will be any better under the new guy, might as well just stick with Lambert and save myself the hassle of making another decision that could go wrong."

No, we're stuck with Lambert until next Jan at least, hoping that the 2-year point of the contract is when it can be terminated cheaply....as we sit 19th in league 1

Posh have just make a triple substitution to freshen things up.

Don't they realise they're winning?

I mean we're losing - not threatening Posh at all - yet the 'manager' seems happy with what he's seeing.

Just watching the Lance Armstrong doc on BBC2.....what an utter cunit that guy was/is.

Never really followed cycling, but always thought that there was something dodgy about all those TDF wins, but the way he used/abused people to get his way, unbelievable.

Just made some fresh pasta for the first time
at 15:09 24 Jan 2021

Got a pasta maker for Christmas, thought it was about time I tried it out.

Boy, it's hard work - would've been easier (and less messy) to pop over to Italy and buy it fresh there.

Turned out OK, had it with some nice tomato and basil sauce (cheated with that, had a tub on offer in Sainsburys yesterday.

Think I'll have to watch a few youtube vids on making the dough and using the machine though, otherwise it's gonna be a lot of effort to do it again.

Anyone out there make their own?

Lamberts payoff
at 10:43 24 Jan 2021

None of us know the details of that terrible 5-yr contract ME gave him just over a year ago, but the general assumption is that there will be some kind of break clause that kicks in - hopefully very, very soon.

But even if there isn't, and say PL is due a cool £1m payoff, surely he's not expecting it in his bank account the day after he's given his P45? Surely ME can come to some agreement with him that it's paid in 6 months/a years time, or even in instalments if he's concerned about the cost - especially with the added cost of the incoming manager.

Lambert's already financially secure, but we know he's also not adverse to taking former employers to court, but even he must be reasonable and understand the financial situation that we (and football in general) are in?

Mind you, if I were Lambert, I would be embarrassed that I was still taking a wage for the extremely poor job I was doing, and I'd quit. He's got a great excuse - Covid has knocked him for six, no-one would blame him for quitting now citing health as the reason.

as much as a home game against the scum in recent years. Expecting a defeat, hoping for a draw.

We need some help, early red card for one of theirs and pen to us would be nice.

Posh haven't won away from home since early November, apparently.

It's brilliant, so funny. Just 15 min episodes, but so well done. Worth watching on iPlayer (series 1 too) if you've missed it.
