I don't know Alasdair, but he comes across as a decent guy on Twitter and seems pretty centre-left to me (not anything like he's being portrayed by Hunt).
I've seen other veterans calling out the conditions in these centres being appalling getting abuse on Twitter. It doesn't mean they approve of the fires that were set, just stating that they're living in awful conditions. Desperate people do desperate things and dehumanising them isn't going to help the situation. Thank you for your service, but not if you're left-wing and don't agree with Conservative Party policy I guess?
Was walking to the pub just after we'd conceded. All good, we're drawing, they're losing, etc. Then heard a huge roar, checked and they'd equalised. Walked a bit further down then heard an almighty roar, they'd bloody won. Carrow Road has seemed quiet the last few years but that was a proper roar, I was nowhere near the stadium and I heard it. Depressing. They did us a favour I guess. Hope they f*ck it up though!
Yes, focusing on the real issues here I know, but it seems gone are the days where you could roll in from the pub and flick through a few channels of rock/alternative music. There was also Vintage TV which played some decent stuff which is also gone, so just Kerrang left now and that is stuck in 2002.
I know I can just queue up videos from YouTube onto my TV, but I like the laziness of flicking through the music channels (also 120 Minutes on MTV2 was also genuinely great and got me into a few bands). Maybe I'm set in my ways, but why is rock/alternative music so poorly catered for now in this regard (it's not like it has become hugely unpopular or something)?
Did anyone else go to this yesterday? It has gone into my top 5 gigs for sure, the man an his band are sublime. Kylie came on to sing 'Where the Wild Roses Grow' too, very unexpected! The atmosphere was something else.
I also saw Nadine Shah earlier in the day, she was bloody excellent too. Overall a decent festival if you can stomach the London prices which are beyond extortionate.
He had a huge collection of Town and Norwich programmes, was quite impressive. He said he'd be happy if either team wins, seems like a nice chap.
I have not come across this before myself (i.e. supporting Town and Norwich) bar what looked like a wind-up account on Twitter, has anyone else? I did meet a Norwich fan in the South Stand bar once though, I mentioned I live in Norwich and he said he lives in Ipswich, supports Norwich but watches both as he just likes watching football, can understand that a bit more I guess!
It certainly doesn't appear to be the case now or when McGoldrick was bid on by Leicester a few years ago.
"Bart and Didzy is another matter. Goodness knows that would be a real blow. None of us are wanting to lose them and I can’t do anything about it. I can’t do anything about being asked about it. If somebody comes in it’ll be discussed and decided."
After the McGoldrick bid in 2014:
"He says the decision will be owner Evans’s and not his: “If one does go, that won’t be down to me that will be down to what Leicester are bidding and what Marcus decides is the right [price]."
It is very worrying if we lose both those players and it looks likely they won't be effectively replaced this window. The season is pretty much written off anyway but that really will do it, I know we have to sell to cover our losses but it is so utterly depressing and if it isn't evidence than Evans is merely trading water I don't know what is.
It also shows that whilst Mick isn't blameless for the poor tactics, etc, over the last couple of seasons he is perhaps more hamstrung than some would like to admit.
