Good performance....
at 20:15 26 Oct 2019

... enjoyed that.

Was watching with the home fans (right-hand stand as seen from the away end).

Norwood is a nuisance, and we've missed him. Downes was excellent, and Nolan coming on for Skuse was a blessing in disguise - he looked good.

Edwards wasn't very good, and I think Garbutt would rather be playing further up the pitch.

Norris looked composed; made a couple of fine saves. Still a bit concerned about how easily our wingbacks get done - Accrington, Rotherham and Sarfend have all had varying degrees of joy to this end.

Agree with comments elsewhere that their 36 was their best player, although the Southend around me didn't seem to like him at all.

Our fans were loud, especially down in the corner next to the Sarfend drum machine,

Special mention to the Old Trout pub - quality boozer that was stumbled upon by accident.

Any of you fools seen this? It is bloody brilliant.

I suppose the closest parallel to be drawn would be with The Wire - basically a crime epic set in Napoli, looking at the drug cartels and families.

Ah, RKD, don't do it...

.... as a self-proclaimed tart who left and, er, came back again, this is a low-quality idea.

I wanna talk Trailer Park Boys and pitch invasions on lesser-known East Anglian football pitches with you.

Come home, my sweet prince. Come home.

Having a reasonably good game.

Dortmund should be level in this tie.
Mental, mental game of cricket....

.... 800 runs in just under 100 overs. Buttler and Gayle going mad. And finishing with 4 wickets in 5 balls.

Pretty, pretty good.

Agree wholeheartedly about Takayama and the Biryani Hut, not so sure about Maharani.

ChutneyZ was absolute gronk when I went there; maybe I got them on a bad night.

Give everyone in the NSL one of these.

Funge's dinners - parts 7 and 8, probably, in an ongoing series.
at 20:39 31 Oct 2018

Dinner 7 - Saturday afternoon, with another well associated TWTD peer - that Vegan burger shack (TFI Vegan?) on Falcon St, where the council have put the market, while they erect that giant brass statue of Chris Mole on the Cornhill.

Anyway, I had some 'Hallaoumi' burger thing, which was well tasty, although one could notice the lack of any real Halloumi. These guys do not fck about with their seasoning, and that's really what makes this a decent meal. They slid me some Popcorn Chickin afterwards - they said I wouldn't be able to tell the difference with real chicken, which obviously wasn't the case - but hells bells, the glaze was fully, fully decent.

In summary, not as good as the Biryani Hut (the yardstick by which all Ipswich foodstalls are measured), but still very good.

Dinner 8- Pronto Pizza, on Fuluxstoo Rd.

As mentioned by man Lucan, the key here is value. An extra large pizza (20 inches) is £10.59, and if you can get anywhere close to eating even half of it, you've got worms.

The pizza itself is not bad - good thin base, fresh ingredients, altho a little bit too oily. The crust dips are underwhelming, so either make your own or throw the crusts in the garden. Would eat again, but only if all the Bella Napoli's were closed.

So, farewell Paul Hurst and Chris Doig...
at 18:13 25 Oct 2018

... it was fun, for the 15 minutes until Norwich equalised.

I can't immediately think of another manager who has come in and been so clearly, obviously, dreadfully out of his depth. Dave Hockaday at Leeds, maybe?

I heard a story today about how Doig accused Bart of stealing his international cap. Bearing in mind how much Bart has spoken about his pride in playing for Poland, one can imagine how that was received.

What next? It's gonna be ugly; the one saving grace is that we still have a chance of staying up. With this squad of dipsh1ts though, who knows?
Absolutely no sign of any forward progress whatsoever...
at 17:18 20 Oct 2018

... Hurst has to go, or we go down... (altho, to be frank, we may well go down with this squad anyway)

Of all the players he's bought, Edwards is average, there's a kernel of hope with Jackson - and the rest are appalling.

What on earth was that performance from Nsiala today? Shrews fans, be happy - we've given you £2m for actual tripe.

It could have easily been 5-0 today, against a thoroughly ordinary QPR team.

Any of you fools watching?

That final episode of S4 might be perfect television.

All of that was immense. The acting, the screenplay, direction, production - brilliant stuff.

Remarkable how much better it is than Breaking Bad (which, I hasten to add, was very good indeed).

If you don't know, better get to know.

That was really, really bad...
at 17:13 22 Sep 2018

... absolutely no quality in that side, at all.

Nolans performance was a disgrace; reminiscent of Douglas at his worst. Jogging around the centre circle, no pace, incapable of passes over 5 yards in distance.

We have nothing up front, Bolton had three of the best 4 chances in the game. A superb save from Alnwick was literally all we had.

This is going very wrong, very quickly.

Fat Ipswich based TWTDers - Nuevo Mexico open

On Upper Orwell St (Kebab Alley), where Krazy Kitchen used to be (next to Mannas).

Went there for lunch today - it is outstanding.

Ordered a burrito for £7.50; thing turned up and it was the size of a house-brick. A good start.

This was a 'wet' burrito, akin to an enchilada (as opposed to the more common 'traditional' foil-wrapped burrito) - but, frankly, who gives one solitary fck about that when the food tastes as good as this?

Everything is cooked from fresh; the salsa had mango in, and was juicy and spicy. Guacamole done extremely well, with the right ratio of avocado to lime. Loads of rice, loads of black beans, and the beef was tender. Could have done with slightly more sour cream, but my tastes are MILKY.

Demolished in 10 mins, now want another one. 8 hours later.

Independent places down Kebab Alley tend to burn very brightly before closing; Athens Kebab being a case in point. I strongly recommend investigating and eating there, before IBC put the rent up to £4k a month, so they can turn Christchurch Mansion into a bobsleigh run, or something.

In summary - very good indeed. 8.5/ 10. Go and eat there.

Nowhere near quickly enough, is the short answer.

And then that happened.
