Institutional ageism seems to be OK
at 11:20 7 Jun 2020

Whilst in no way denigrating the herd wanting to be seen to be protesting about institutional racism in the USA and the 9 people killed so far this year in police custody (according to a deranged rant by ex-NY mayor Rudy Giuliani).... it seems a little odd that none of these concerned UK citizens seem overly bothered by the unnecessary deaths of tens of thousands of old people needlessly dying in the UK in the last three months

History i repeating itself
at 17:01 1 May 2020

Incompetent Tory government compounding disastrous policies that make the country a laughing stock with ignorant response to a well-flagged global pandemic.... you've never had it so good.

Just back from my cycling constitutional

Cloudy skies and showers meant the roads were almost cyclist-free.... just like they were before the pretend lock down started

I know its a sunny day - but the crowds out in their lycra today are way up on a couple of weeks ago.

Suffolk Punches need your help
at 08:19 24 Apr 2020

Not the biggest priority now perhaps but the enforced closure of the suffolk punch trust means it is needing some financial help to keep going. Not just the proud emblem of Suffolk and Ipswich Town.... and the suffolk show....

And why not name a foal after your favourite Town player while you are there.... Hegan the suffolk punch perhaps.

Corona Virus could kill off Town
at 12:30 5 Mar 2020

If we believe Marcus Evans runs his businesses a bit more effectively than he runs his football club - and they generate some money - which allows him to drip feed a few million to fund the decline of Ipswich Town - the rise of Corona Virus is a little worrying.

His number one earner is presumably industrial-scale ticket touting for global events which may well be cancelled for the forseeable future.

His number two earner is possibly farcical hot air conferencing - which has been a bit moribund for a while - and is equally threatened by a rampant virus.

And if the elusive Evans is even more strapped for cash.... he presumably won't be putting very much Town's way.

Ironic that not enough hand-washing may eventually lead to Evans washing his hands of ITFC

Norwich Chant at Spurs last night
at 09:32 5 Mar 2020

9,000 lusty voices kept chanting....

FIVE more years, FIVE more years for Paul Lambert
FIVE more years for him
FIVE more years, FIVE more years for Paul Lambert
And the scum wont win a thing!!

Luckily none of the commentators knew what they were on about - but the spurs supporters who work here still managed a chuckle - and recorded it so I can listen all day

HS2 'Biggest infrastructure project in Europe'
at 07:41 12 Feb 2020

Really? It's a short stretch of rail between London and Brum - with maybe a short extension which is more likely to be quietly dropped as the economy slows post-Brexit.

Last time I looked there was an integrated high speed rail service across most of Europe - some of which can already be accessed from London via the tunnel.

Presumably they just mean it's ludicrously expensive for what it it.

All quiet from the NFL enthusiasts?

Or are you not up yet after your late night?

Personally I thought it was a classic of its kind - even after it finished when Trump thought Kansas City was in Kansas

And for once the Mick McCarthy-like mantra that 'defence wins superbowls' was wrong

Interesting times ahead with a couple of allegedly generational quarterbacks in this year's draft (admittedly one may be terminally injured) to add to the Jackson and Mahones future.

How's the Town to win every game bet doing?
at 13:21 2 Feb 2020

Not sure if the betting addict who suggested this is actually doing it - but presumably with each inept performance the odds on a win lengthen each time so these things tend to balance out.... admittedly well in favour of the bookies.

Just wondering how much money has been tossed away so far.
