|Cameron Burgess and his poor first 6 months|
at 09:15 23 Jan 2022
I was thinking yesterday, as I watched Accrington's CB's launch the ball high in the air for the umpteenth time, that it isn't surprising that Burgess has struggled to settle into a team that wants to pass from the back. If that is how he was playing there then I struggle to see how anyone thought he was a good fit for what we are trying to do.
I've not seen a team so determined to just make everything a scrap for a while. It wasn't just long balls, but they were literally pumping it up in the air regardless of where it landed, to get a 50/50 scrap for it.

There are a few on here who, inexplicably, don't see what he does for us. Today should have shown them the error of their ways.
So much of our best football went through him, and I thought it was probably his best performance since rejoining. If we can get him performing like that every week we'll turn over a lot of teams.

We've had sub standard keepers ever since being in the godforsaken division, and whilst I don't think that's the reason we're still here, I do think having a proper quality keeper is a major step for finally getting out.
Obviously he'll still make occasional mistakes, like at Bolton, but the confidence he brings by commanding his box, and making all the regular saves plus those that need a bit extra is a huge bonus. Not squirming in my seat every time the other team has a corner or set piece is a major difference to Holy and Hladky.

Right, time for us to expose our darkest secrets, things that the rest of the board will look down upon us for.
I'm Dubtractor, and I actually quite like Hawaiian Pizza.
|Sky high inflation rates|
at 14:53 17 Jan 2022
Why hasn't more been made of this by our media?
Current inflation levels are the highest in 10 years, soaring by the month, and will be costing UK residents a serious sum. Yet there doesn't seem to be much noise about it?
|MK Dons away - tickets|

With the size of their ground, getting tickets will be easy won't it?
|The really noticeable difference for me - movement|
at 16:19 8 Jan 2022
The movement off the ball from us, especially players looking for the second and third passes in the move, anticipating where the ball is going to end up.
This quite often results with us having a player on the ball in space in decent positions.

This is so damn good so far.
Is this what proper coaching looks like?

It was first broadcast 30 years ago today.
Great programme for gamers of a certain vintage.
|TWTD/mumsnet question of the day|
at 14:46 6 Jan 2022
Are any of you clued up on home insurance?
As mentioned before we are on the lookout for a new home, and a few places we've spotted come with a thatched roof, and in addition often have old style wooden doors (so without the complex locking mechanism).
I cam work out for myself that this will mean higher insurance costs, but does anyone have any ball park figures for how much more?
I would contact my current insurer but finding a phone number to contact them is like finding a needle in a haystack!

Still pretending that the end of last season doesn't count then...
|I did another 80s pop party mix last night|
at 11:52 1 Jan 2022
I don't usually share my radio shows here, but last year's 80s special seemed to be appreciated by a few on here so I'm going to share this year's too!
This is another 'DJ Mix' show, so all tunes are mixed and blended together (hopefully successfully!), and as well as pop classics, there is soft rock, dance, hip hop and some absolute cheesy whoppers. I'm not on the microphone too much on this one so you can enjoy the tunes without my dulcet tones spoiling them!
