Dull subject but anyone know if there are still problems on the A12 southbound after evening games?
|Pizza cup seats|
at 15:25 2 Aug 2022
Going to my first ever Pizza CUP (EFL Trophy) game against Colchester with my 13 year old as it's the only game on while his friend is down with us for a few days. Given the stadium is likely to be pretty quiet any recommendations on where to sit to get the best atmosphere. I was thinking section 6 the most obvious choice but is it pretty dead anyway for these games?
|Mckenna - Character reference|
at 14:16 19 Jul 2022
I was chatting to a work contact today who coaches at Man U. He knew Mckenna for a few years and was saying what a great character we have recruited. I think we all knew this already, but he also had some interesting thoughts on the strength of his connection with younger players. He was also saying how much harder it is getting for "old school" managers to come in and get the best out of the younger generation as their expectations have changed so much.
|McKenna pre Bolton|
at 17:18 13 Jan 2022
Just watched McKenna's interview. Things I really liked:
- Clear sense of how Bolton play and what that means for our approach
- Talked about the performance against Gills rather than the result even though we won
- When asked about players "righting some wrongs" because we lost the home fixture, he seemed almost annoyed by the idea they wouldn't approach each game with the same intensity
The final point is the biggest one for me, I think too often we've been complacent because it's only [insert tinpot L1 club here]. Hopefully McKenna has got the players treating every game with respect.
|Some musings on why Labour haven't called for Johnson's resignation.|
at 13:41 11 Jan 2022
I've been wondering this for ages, but the longer Labour go without doing this, the more I think it must be in service of a larger strategic goal. Even Angela Rayner didn't call for his resignation when asked fairly directly on TV.
I think Labour are already confident he will be gone before the next election and don't want to give his replacement time to repair the damage. Also, the longer the Conservatives let Johnson stay in post the more collateral damage is done to their reputation rather than just Johnson's.
Just my musings but I'd be interested to know what others think.
|Swindon / City|
at 20:10 7 Jan 2022
Anyone else watching this? Swindon look good value so far. Simpson looks a proper unit.
Edit - Not looking such a good take this now, trying to play out from the back against City isn't going so well...

|McKenna watching the oppo|

Small point from McKenna's interview ahead of the Gills game. Love that he went to watch them play MK Dons on New Years Day (not sure I was capable of watching let alone travelling that day!).
I guess it's not that surprising considering our game was called off but love his attention to detail and taking any opportunity to gain an advantage.

Interesting that Gillingham and Lincoln are getting in those signings ahead of their postponed fixtures. Anyone else think this should be banned?

|No Home Kit - Shelter|
at 15:32 22 Dec 2021
Does anyone know if the club are supporting Shelter's "No Home Kit" campaign on Boxing Day? I saw something on Shelter's site saying that Town fans are being encouraged to wear away kits but nothing from the club.
|Slightly more upbeat managerial rumours on twitter...|
at 11:34 15 Dec 2021
Seen a few rumours on twitter that it might be someone that no-one is expecting. The words, young, hungry and premier league ambitions used by one. Anyone in the know hearing anything similar or do we think this is just twitter nonsense?
at 11:07 8 Nov 2021
Looks like they've finally given the go ahead for safe standing trials in the Prem. Like them or loathe them but Spurs new single tier South Stand will be something else!
Do we know if the new owners are considering anything similar at PR? Surely the North Stand has to be under consideration?
|PL ambitions just got harder, Saudi takeover of NUFC done.|
at 17:28 7 Oct 2021
I'm sure their fans are bouncing but this is a bad day for English football. Even setting the money aside (and we are in no real position to criticise that now) the ethics of this stink to high heaven.
Edit just seen the other thread!

|Yellow kit dilemma|
at 15:45 8 Sep 2021
Baxter junior just had his kit arrive for this season, it's yellow, canary yellow. Do I:
a) Burn it
b) Let him wear it but shout abuse at the team
c) Grow up and just let him enjoy his footy
|Empty shop front on the Cobbold|
at 17:15 21 Jul 2021
With all these photos of the Cobbold it makes me wonder what could be done with the empty shop front. I assume this used to be the club shop at some point? Ten points for the best idea of what the club could do with it.
|Sweden Ukraine Extra time? |
at 21:34 29 Jun 2021
I'd be very happy to see this go to extra time and put 30 minutes more in these teams legs before Saturday...
