I'm going to go for 176, nowhere near enough probably but an improvement.

London pubs (not football related)
at 22:56 7 Jan 2022

Ms Coastal is out with her 2 oldest friends tomorrow and it looks like the weather is going to be grim.

Any suggestions where 3 ladies in their 40's can get a decent pub lunch at a reasonable price including veggie options and potentially spend an afternoon tucking in and invariably getting sh1tfaced?

Ideally looking East to Central, verging round to North if required. A decent pub rather than a touristy pub.

Norwich have never won a Premier League game on a Tuesday before (drew four, lost 12), with only West Brom playing more games on a specific weekday without victory in the competition (32 on Tuesdays).

Really?
at 01:09 8 Dec 2021

My first live game this season and I am still struggling to believe how bad we were.

That was awful, bad enough for most non league sides to be embarrassed by it. I see Toto has got sh1t again this evening, he's far from the worst of out problems. Nobody shows for the ball, nobody wants the ball, nobody is within 30 yards of the ball when we have it, and that's the best bit, when we don't have posession we really show how bad we are.

1-0 down, defending a corner, our furthest forward player is just in front of the 18 yard line, why? Is Chaplin really going to be more help defending a corner than occupying a defender or two further up the pitch?

We look like a scouts team at times, simply awful, I am shocked, gobsmacked at how bad that was tonight.

As for the support, some people need to take a long hard look at themselves.

Play offs? You got to be kidding

Has a look on their website, seems there's no need to provide anything or does anybody know different. Sorry, it will actually be my first game live this season so not acquainted to the way things are generally done.

Short term appointment?
at 22:22 4 Dec 2021

I said I would be happy with this last week, could we see a gnarly old pro (no not that one) being offered a deal until the end of the season with a big sack of cash to come if he gets us up?

Every week that went by meant it was less enticing for somebody as we slipped further from the prospect of it being achievable, but would people be prepared to watch less than spellbinding football for the rest of the season in return for the chance to grind out the points to get us out of this horrible league, the project to start proper (again) next season?

Gor my Mariner book in the post today which got me thinking, and of course we're playing the Arse tonight. Who've we seen go to them over the years?

Talbot, Mariner, Kywomya, Wright, am I missing any big names?

Have we had any decent signings from them?

In terms of staff at the Club
at 22:45 29 Nov 2021

Is there anybody still working there who was there for the playoff season or the Prem adventure?

Just wondering if there's anybody left at the club who remembers what it's like to be working somewhere with an upward trajectory?

If it's just us supporters then maybe that's a small part of the problem, engrained experience.

I'm guessing O'Leary will have opinion with a lot of weight
at 22:34 23 Nov 2021

The owners must listen to somebody presumably, not sure they will feel qualified enough at the moment to pass judgment on Cook.

Ashton clearly has skin in the game having processed the many, many transfers. What's Cook's previous with O'Leary if any?

I wonder if Marcus is having a quiet private chortle somewhere out of sight?

Shaving

The face bit before you lot go all KOA on me.

Get the odd beard thread on here, none odder than Keno after all, wondered what people use for shaving.

Do many use obscenely expensive cartridge razors? I use a merkur DE safety razor, never looked back after I switched and am partial to some Truefitt and Hill shave creams with some of the money saved from the cartridges.

Badger and Blade is a decent resource for anybody interested, nothing about improved performances or tippy tappy football on there though.

Jonathan Agnew looking at how England have planned for the upcoming Ashes series for the last couple of years, part one out currently and it's a fascinating listen.
