We need bodies through the door and some stiffer competition. This guy is dead good and can fill a hole at left back.

And maybe the start of putting a few myths to bed.

In my personal experience and seeing how society has struggled to adapt and filter social media, it's adults who seem to have the biggest problem. Not the kids who have grown up with it.

Positive from yesterday
at 11:43 28 Apr 2019

Obviously there's the other side of this which is negative but I thought our younger players were our best players.

Downes and Bishop looked good when they were involved but there was little team structure going forward or anything up front to work with.

Then when Dozzell came on he showed in a few quick and accurate passes what we'd been missing before then. Contrast that with Chalobah's first time stabby lobs and lumps up the pitch that just gave the ball away.

Getting a structure and some solidity on the pitch (which will mean someone who can lead the line, Judge settling into a role and our defence taking charge of situations) would have made a big difference. Putting Skuse in as a sweeper helped with the defensive side of that so that was at least an interesting development.

Very impressive, especially for a 20-year old.

We were a little random in midfield and didn't seem to pressure Brentford in any organised way so that might have made him look better. But he didn't really put a foot wrong in that deeper midfield role.

Rights and wrongs of Brexit aside, this is still astonishing

Buried a little in the main news of Brexit but the fact that we can't handle the practicalities professionally suggests any "plan" is a non-starter. I suggest those Nigerian princes start writing their letters to the government.

If there's no way forward on these advisory votes then you keep the current arrangement.

They may have voted against revoking Article 50 but it's clearly the new default setting now that no-deal has been categorically rejected.

Smacking ban getting closer in Wales
at 13:16 25 Mar 2019

There's really no need for smacking is there?

I got smacked as a kid plus the plimsoll and cane on the rare occasion and didn't see a problem with that. It was the norm and all my friends went through the same.

But with my own kids I've never smacked them and rarely got angry, I just tell them not to do it and why. They're good kids - sure, they still see what they can get away with and don't listen sometimes but exactly the same as we did when we were young even with the threat of physical punishment.

This has been borne out by research into the actual effectiveness of corporal punishment. Not to mention the risks and potential side-effects it creates:

This is pretty good
at 12:54 24 Mar 2019

I thought Jonathan Pie was a bit 2017 and he'd been surpassed by the Brexit shenanigans. But this is a good skewering of the political class and a stark picture of where we stand now.



All he's missing is the similarly awful state of our media, with tabloids cheering on from the sidelines and broadsheets and TV being far too passive and indulgent of political BS.

Good effort but still a little disappointing
at 21:50 12 Mar 2019

Lots of energy, movement and commitment on and off the ball and that was enough to put a stuttering Bristol City team under pressure.

But, the big failing as always, a crucial lack of quality and composure to create real chances or work the keeper. We've got to hope that the failure to do simple things when we get in the opponent's half is a result of our lack of wins but we'll need to be a lot more effective even in League One.

There are decent and skilled players in there but somehow we're as clinical as an oven mitten.

Enjoying the small things #1
at 11:30 4 Mar 2019

Of course, Nsiala should have done an awful lot better for their winner, even taking into account it was a very unlucky ricochet that then set the Reading goalscorer free.

But trying to be positive I at least enjoyed his huge header over (and through) the Reading player in the first half. And I also LOVE those driven passes of his from the back. He started the season off with a few of them before his confidence seemed to go but he hit an absolute pearler up to Quaner or Bishop on Saturday. We haven't had many good examples of long balls over the past decade, so makes a change to see them hit low and accurately rather than aimlessly lofted.

Anyone else got any crumbs of comfort to share?

Footballing lesson today
at 14:03 10 Feb 2019

And that lesson is that, even if you have the upper hand box to box, you need to get the upper hand in the three or four moments in each box. We lost all of the key moments today.

Great attitude and effort from us (some good football too) but the fat lady has finished warming up and is moving towards the stage.

Strange game today
at 19:23 19 Jan 2019

After a poor spell in the middle of the first half it looked like we could get something from the game. But individual mistakes or lapses at did for us in the end.

I'm starting to think that the mistakes now come with the territory. We were on a par with Blackburn in all departments (Dack was on form and the standout player to be fair) but they just didn't make a quarter of our mistakes at some of which would be crucial.

It's all a bit of a mystery when the players can now do most things well 95% of the time and the technique levels/organisation have risen massively in recent weeks. But everyone just seems to be waiting for the inevitable error on the ball or in defence.

If there's a glimmer of hope then there are encouraging signs from Judge, Keane and Quaner. If they can click before they start making the same amount of forced and unforced errors as their teammates then maybe we can turn this death ship around.
