|Anyone here tried really expensive wine?|
at 10:35 17 Feb 2020
I tasted very expensive wine that was absolutely fabulous and I've tasted very expensive wine that has been awful.
I tasted seven quid a bottle wine that was absolutely fabulous and I've tasted seven quid a bottle wine that has been awful.
It's down to personal preference.

It will be an absolute disgrace if this bloke still had his job this afternoon. And he should be followed out of the door by Cummings who had opened Downing Street to these so called “super-talented weirdos"*.
* It could be argued that the electorate already did this on December 22.

My condition of selection was fully fit. A fully fit Sears is a league above Jackson.

Last game of the season. We need three points to guarantee a top two finish.
Pick your starting eleven (all players are fit)
Wolf. Chambers. Earl.

Downes and Wolfenden are not League one players. I’d say that they have every chance of being developed into players that have decent Premier league careers such as Creswell and Mings. Failure to be promoted this year will be sign that the club does not match their personal ambitions.
Brighton have already sniffed around Digba so he’s on the radar of the top clubs. Dozzell may well feel that there is little point in staying at Ipswich, given his limited opportunities. There will be better clubs happy to give him that chance.
KVY is also a cut above this league. As previously posted, the saving grace may be that his injury has kept him off the radar.
We sold Harrison this year. I wouldn’t be surprised to see one of Jackson or Norwood sold with Sears as an option and Jirdan Roberts returning.
This is where we are folks.

If we fail to go up this season we will not be signing Garbutt and will most likely cash in on KVY, Dozzell, Wolfenden, Drogba & Downes.
A top six league one team may also believe that they could do a better job with either Norwood or Jackson than we have. And Marcus will take their money.
Which begs the question: Is Evans happy with us being a mid table League One team?
Under Mick’s management, he showed that he didn’t have the appetite or ambition to fund a promotion push to the Premier League and if we were promoted back to the championship, it’s fairly obvious that this team needs serious investment just to stay up next season.
So is making up the numbers in League one where Evans feels most comfortable?

|Its time to protest for Evans Out|
at 09:43 9 Feb 2020
Our season is in danger of going down the tubes. The last thing we need is more disruption.
Get behind the club, manager and team for the foreseeable.
If we reach the stage where it is mathematically impossible to make the play off’s and there is fook all to play for then fill your boots and chant Evans out for the entire 90 minutes. But please, not when we have so much at stake.

One last thought.
The one consolation of being in this awful league has been visiting small grounds in the north of England which have a bit of character.
The Stadium of Light is a soulless grey place.

When I saw the Line up I suspected that Lambert had set us up for a draw and I wasn’t expecting much in terms of football.
The first half was one of the best I’ve seen this season. We did everything right except put the ball in the back of the net. Our performance could have only been improved by better crossing and attacking play from KVY/Edwards and Garbutt but the midfield of a Nolan, Skuse and Downes really clicked and we looked solid at the back.
Our determination and desire was typified by Chambers chasing a lost cause by their corner flag, which he had absolutely no chance of keeping in play yet not only did he get the ball but he forced the Sunderland defender to concede a throw in.
I said to Mach at half time that I feared we would rue the lack of an end product but we would win this game if we carried on the second half as we had the first.
Talk about a game of two halves.
We knew Sunderland would have had a rollicking at half time and they couldn’t have played as badly in the second half, but I didn’t believe we could also play the exact opposite in the final 45 as we did in the first.
Gone was the desire. Passes constantly went astray. Long balls to nobody in particular became the norm, we were second to every loose ball and made half hearted challenges as Sunderland players ran past our midfield and defence.
The defence looked in panic and it was real Keystone cops stuff as we couldn’t get the ball out of our own penalty area despite having numerous opportunities to do so. In this period we could have quite easily conceded two or three goals.
When Sunderland did score there was little urgency in our play. Far too many sideways and backwards passes. Nobody driving forwards trying to create an opportunity. We only had ten minutes to get an equaliser but we played like we had another 90.
I really don’t understand how we could be so good in the first half and so bloody awful in the second. It’s as if a lambert had expected a reaction from the home team and told our players to sit deeper and keep hold of the point.
We now need a reaction on a Tuesday night and out in a run if form against the “lesser sides” to get our season back on track.

Playing for a draw. Will gift them a goal in stoppage time just before half time.
