Interesting business move by the UK government
at 12:50 4 Jul 2020

https://www.gov.uk/government/news/uk-government-to-acquire-cutting-edge-satelli

OneWeb filed for bankruptcy partially due to financiers panicking about CV19, and the government seems to have taken the chance to grab a bit of satellite technology.

Not sure how if will directly benefit thr UK since the manufacturing bases are all elsewhere and difficult to move, without putting OneWeb further behind SpaceLink. Interesting move nevertheless.

Controversial footy opinion: who said it?
at 11:30 4 Jul 2020

Some of you will definitely know, for those who want to guess, it is someone very smart indeed.

"I’m fairly sure that England’s World Cup winning football team from 1966 would struggle against the current first team of my beloved Ipswich Town, at the time of writing languishing in the third tier of the English leagues."

Got to say, smart as the writer is, I thik he is wrong, oh so wrong. I can't see Chambers matching up to Moore, Holy is not a patch on Banks, even given the improvements in training methods since the. Give them the 1966 ball and the current Town team wouldn't get within a country mile of them.

Some disconcerting thoughts on Town and time
at 10:11 27 Jun 2020

At Town we have a regular rythm of winning something every 19 years, since Sir Alf's might triumph in 1962.

We won the Football league Championship on 28th April 1962
19 years 22 days later on 22nd May 1981 we won the UEFA Cup
19 years 7 days later on 29th May 2000 we won promotion back to the premier league

The two Pauls broke that model by getting us relegated 19 years later, strictly speaking I suppose it was a little under 19 years since we went down with a whimper very early,

Also in the season that we won the football league, Liverpool got promoted from the second tier

Finally, here's a date for your diary, on 2nd June 2021 the same amount of time will have passed since our last game in the Premier League as there was between winning the Football League and the UEFA Cup.

Along with Steven Robinson (Motherwell), Ian Barraclough (NI kids) and Tommy Wright (St Johnston).

I reckon he has a decent chance of getting it.

A triad of Nodge, Bournemouth and West Ham all going down would be a flipping delight. I do hope Villa can find something extra to help make that happen.

Anyone planning on giving Times Radio a listen?

Times Radio is due to go live at 6am next Monday. Sounds like it could be an interesting alternative to Radio 4. I shall certainly be giving it a blast on Sundays when R4 turns into a Christian network.

Rick Parry calling for the end of parachute payments
at 11:29 10 Jun 2020

Rick Parry, the EFL chairman, was on R4 this morning calling for parachute payments to be ended, he said something like they were a massive distortion. He seems to be peeing against the wind here as he has been calling for this for a while and the Premier League keep telling him to get lost.

So far as my feelings about PP's go, I can't help but recall that we were the last team relegated from the premier league without them and all three relegated teams went in to admin that year. Given that, I generally think that there is a case for them, but not to the degree that they are paid out. Two years max maybe, like it is for teams who go straight back down, for all relegated clubs.

As guidelines, several times.

Delia obviously, so far as I know the extent of her dodginess is being a mediocre TV cook and liking one too many sherries.
