Forum Thread This from Emily Maitlis is essential viewing at 07:01 9 Apr 2020 We are going to NEED to change how we look after our society after this. For too long we have seen a race to the bottom for those in low paid/manual jobs. What we're now seeing, as if it was ever in doubt, is these are the very people that are essential to keeping our country moving. Not the 'wealth creators'. For the avoidance of doubt, I have no issue with people being well paid, or even super rich, but we've got the balance so horribly wrong in recent times that it is a tragedy.
Forum Thread I declare it beer and peanuts o'clock at 17:49 3 Apr 2020 Fooking hell my brain is fried. A week of home working juggling financial year end, corona virus reactive work and an avalanche of e-mails has done me. But I'm pretty lucky in the main so shouldn't grumble. Still healthy, fully employed and paid, have a nice garden to pass the time at the weekends etc. How are we all doing TWTD? Holding onto our sanity? Hope those of you with businesses, or working the gig economy in anyway, are keeping ticking over? What a pain in the @rse this all is.
Forum Thread Cheesy 80s Bangers thread at 19:26 31 Mar 2020 There have a been a few vaguely intelligent music thread on here today. I fancy being anti intelligent - have had a relentless few days at work so going big on cheese. Post your musical choices, rules are that it must be from the 80s, it must be cheesy, and it absolutely must be a banger. It does not need to be good. Starter for 10. That bassline just pops! VIDEO
Forum Thread Songs describing now illegal acts at 18:55 24 Mar 2020 Simple theme for a thread. Songs describing things that are now illegal in the corona quarantine era..... VIDEO
Forum Thread This is all a bit surreal isn't it? at 20:06 16 Mar 2020 Not known anything like this ever before, and it feels doubly odd in Suffolk as we are all reacting to something that hasn't really got here yet. I have to say, huge and heartfelt sympathy goes out to anyone owning a business, or relying on the gig economy in any form. This is going to absolutely destroy a lot of businesses and people isn't it? I'm fortunate enough to be in a fairly secure job with the ability to work at home, lots of people don't have that luxury. Lets hope we can all come out of the other side of this as unscathed as possible.
Forum Thread Clutching at positives..... at 15:27 7 Mar 2020 Looks like there may be a weak clutch of teams coming down to join us as it stands. Luton and Barnsley asking a lot from current position, and probably Charlton or Hull (3-0 down against Stoke after 20 minutes today) joining them.
Forum Thread FFS at 22:27 4 Mar 2020 Fooking scummers have just won a shoot out vs spurs. What a time to be a town fan.
Forum Thread If Warnock ends up here it will prove Evans more clueless than we thought at 14:37 1 Mar 2020 This isn't meant as a criticism of Warnock, though I'm not a fan if I'm honest, but after the 5 year contract (FFS, still) was awarded Evans made a big deal about how a technical approach was now the way to go. Say what you want about Warnock, but that's definitely not his approach is it?! Despite my misgivings about Warnock, the time to have appointed him, if we were going that route, was Christmas/January as a season rescuer. That ship has now almost certainly sailed hasn't it? Especially given how badly the players in our squad would fit with Warnock's type of football.
Forum Thread Farking hell at 16:53 29 Feb 2020 If we're managing to lose at Blackpool, given their run of form over the last few months...... Decent performance or not, this is a terrible result.
Forum Thread Biggest mistake this season? at 07:31 26 Feb 2020 For me I think failing to get a target man in the summer and making do with an unfit Keane as he was available.. Lambert was clearly after a target man, Elliot from Millwall was even in the door, and lacking that physical, direct option up front has cost us. We are so easy to defend against when a team keeps their shape. We can't pass through teams, and every time we play a quick direct ball the opposition easily mop it up. This isn't really meant as a dig at Keane, though I'm not a fan, more that he was the wrong player for what we needed.

Forum Thread Best vegetable at 13:51 24 Feb 2020 Seems like this is a vegetable kind of day. So which is the best one? I'm going for cabbage. Specifically Savoy cabbage, steamed, with lots of salt and pepper. Finely sliced before steaming btw.
Forum Thread VAR is bloody awful isn't it? at 08:13 23 Feb 2020 Just watching MOTD and having seen the Chelsea v Spurs, Leicester v City and Burnley v Bournemouth games I'm almost getting angry watching games I have no investment in at all.
