Stonewall Penalties vs Soft Penalties
at 09:13 15 Jan 2020

We have been awarded exactly as many penalties as we have conceded this season so far. But, and I acknowledge that this may simply be normal fan bias, I have this feeling that we have suffered a bit with stonewall penalties not being given for us (Wycombe definitely, last night I hear), whereas some of the penalties given against us have been soft or plain wrong (Wycombe again).

Am I right or just looking at it through blue tinted glasses?

Did anyone know about this?

There are a couple of Scottish entries in this list, one of which may surprise people who had not heard it mentioned anywhere before

I know they were squirreling it away until after the election, but that was over a month ago and I have not heard anything more about it since.

The glaciers are still shrinking, but the predictions from a decade ago now seem to have been a bit on the pessimistic side.

It is confirmed that Bolton have got away with it

Nothing more than a slap on the wrist for failing to fulfill their fixtures last year and unilaterally cacelling the Donny game this season.

It's open season for any team that feels they don't want to pick and choose when to play their games.

Return Of The Political Thread.
at 15:19 7 Jan 2020

Parliament is back at work today and I have Treasury Questions ticking over in the background and my observation so far is that Sajid David is a bit of a tlt.

His colleagues, Simon CLarke and the Chief Secretary of the Treasury , are making an honest effort to answer questions but SD is just giving it "what about Labour", "Whatabout the SNP".

Good job he didnt get the PM job.

That is new llineup number 33
at 14:03 4 Jan 2020

But given that the inclusion of either Bishop or Sears would have guaranteed a new starting XI, and we get both, I am pretty pleased by this.

Edit: After a quick check, it turns out that the other nine haven't lined up together before.

Still, it's the EFL trophy.

Harry Kane has torn a hamstring
at 17:06 3 Jan 2020

The headlines say he will be out for eight weeks.

That seems pretty short to me, when Teddy did his hamstring in in August 2015 he missed 44 games and was out for 240 days.

Great chat with a window salesman
at 14:52 3 Jan 2020

Thinking about replacing some windows and had a couple of salesmen round. The last was from Great Bentley and yes he was really proud of the village green, couldn't stop talking about it. In fact he seemed genuinely affronted when I said there were other places that claimed the biggest village green in the country, he wanted me to name names.

So it's not just Benters, seems they are all like it.

Transfermarkt market values
at 12:48 3 Jan 2020

If you have ever wondered how transfermarkt.com comes up with their market values for players, apparently they have a 'crowdsourced' system.

That is registered users discuss the value of players on their forum, then a judge decides on the basis of the discussion what value to apply.

This is surprisingly well respected. According to https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0377221717304332

"Some of the most influential newspapers and magazines in Europe regularly quote Transfermarkt's market values for football players (Bryson et al., 2012, Herm et al., 2014), which have been found to correlate closely with experts’ estimates and player salaries "

There are some obvious drawbacks though, it works best for well known players and where there is a lot of dicsussion.

For supporters of a lower tier provincial football club, some of the valuations can look a little out. Downes is currently down with a market value of E900K. and Woolfenden as E90K.

I think we need a few TWTDers to register and bolster their value.
