If you weren't a Town fan

and perhaps supported a side toward the top end of the Championship, to be fair wouldn't you despise us right now?

Cheap little upstarts, just come up from the wasteland of league one, no household name players or even any that cost any real money. Playing exciting attacking football, scoring more goals than anybody else, having more shots than anybody else, never know when they're beaten, scoring late, late goals again and again, winning points fro behind again and again.

Oh and TOP of the league.

They must absolutely hate us, our record breaking start to the season and refusal to shrivel up and disappear has completely screwed up the season.

I can't blame them for it to be honest.

Never seen this before

Apparently it was banned from being shown, an ad for the six nations, I actually think it's quite humourous and amusing and probably shows a side of the UK that most of the rest of the world can't get it's head around.

We're like warring siblings until somebody picks a fight with one of us, then we're a tight family unit.

So this Leicester problem
at 14:15 26 Mar 2024

the more I reads the more the experts all seem to feel that they will end up with a points deduction, and that is will almost certainly be next season.

Now that may mean that it probably doesn't affect us, though perhaps it should if they are not playing within the rules and gaining an unfair advantage, on top of the massive advantage relegated clubs already have in the Championship. Not much to dissuade other clubs from doing much the same, ignore the rules and if you go back up then well tough titty because we're not playing under you any more.

I would feel a little agrieved were that to end up being the case.

The Premier League one though I can't help feeling very different about, although I realise it seems to being pitched into one big case at the moment.

I have sympathy for Leicester in this case, and other clubs, it appears as though those Premier League rules are very much set up to keep the likes of Leicester, and potentially us one day, from upsetting the apple cart where the big clubs are concerned.

You can come and play in our playground with us, have some fun, but don't get ahead of yourself and know your place. Forget it, and get slapped back down, yes by all means catch lightning in a bottle for a season but don't even think about doing that longer term.

It does very much feel like the PSR in the Prem, which on the face of it should be a good thing is actually just another method of keeping the status quo.

Test Match

Very pleasantly surprised not to wake up to another dismal defeat, and while I'd still be surprised if it's not a defeat I'm pleased to see England have made a game of it.
Anybody confident enough to have got up early to have watched any of it?

If Carlsberg did football reports
at 20:00 19 Feb 2024

With all due respect to Phil who does an excellent job and fantastic reports there is nothing like reading a Clive report (or is it Clyve?)

i can only imagine the fun if Rangers were ever unlucky enough to get Shambert managing them.

The lighthouse line is a classic.

Never going to win anything at Tottenham, deserves a trophy on his CV I would suggest, moves somewhere it really should happen, scores a hatfull and is still unlikely to get his hands on a big shiny trophy.

So if the worst happens
at 12:11 10 Nov 2023

and horror of horrors we don't go up this season, and I'm really starting to believe we just might, where would that leave us for next season?

Clearly we don't really know on what commitment may be made in terms of bringing people in and the cost/level, and we perhaps have to keep an eye on what got us where we are and not upsetting the apple cart in terms of marquee style signings, but surely it would still put us well ahead of our curve?

You may argue that we tripped up in getting out of League One, but it's almost starting to feel like we've skipped at least a season on our return the Championship, and even should we lose out in the playoffs we must look a very attractive option for players moving forward, as opposed to a newly promoted side looking to stabilise.

Could we be heading into next season considered one of the 'big guns' from the outside with the attraction that brings? Does that mean that Prem ready players could be enticed with the belief they may well only require a season in the Championship?

I find it a little odd to be typing this, but regardless of how this season pans out have we been in a place as good as this since our 5th place finish?

Surely Die Delia die while not being very PC is not something we'd want on many levels now?

Isn't it a case that she's out of her depth financially these days and the longer she is there the better for us as it's worse for them?

There must be something more along the lines of Robert Chase is a football genius we could replace it with?

Elf n safety
at 20:49 16 Oct 2023

Was looking through the Blue Peter thing on the beeb for a bit of nostalgia, and watched the film of John Noakes going up Nelson's column on a rickety old ladder and no harness etc.. Genuinely scary and daredevil stuff.

Got me thinking about the changes, fotr the better I might add and the controversy over Flintoff's Top gear accident and that it likely signals the end of TG (probably about a decade overdue but that's a different argument)

This was on a kids TV show in 1977, clip number 5 if you fancy watching it, it beggars belief watching it today.

Not happy with that if I'm honest, think he's a lucky boy to be getting a start in WC quarter on his CV.

Can England go one better that Wales (I just watched the second half in a pub in Wales, think TWTD when we lose)? You'd hope so, but it won't be easy for this England side.

Latest Book Thread?
at 23:38 4 Sep 2023

Not seen one for a while but just finished a series of back to back books that I loved, though annoyingly got to wait for the last one now.

The Red Rising series by Pierce Brown, a kind of futuristic fantasy with I guess traces of The Hunger Games, Wool etc but tied up with Roman mythology and set across the stars. Really very, very good and I'm not normally much of a Sci-Fi reader.

Anybody else read?
