Look at it this way
at 12:13 11 Nov 2019

Perhaps the poorest period at Ipswich Town in recent decades will be book-ended by 1-1 home draws with Lincoln in the FA Cup, if we beat them in the replay, get promoted in May and push on from there.

Ought Liverpool be compelled
at 14:19 31 Oct 2019

to prioritise a domestic competition - the EFL Cup - over the FIFA Club World Cup (IMO a rather silly piece of marketing flummery) if there is an unresovleable fixture clash?

Catch 22
at 10:02 25 Oct 2019

Labour (and others) say they won't allow a General Election until they know the length of an Article 50 extension.

The French say they won't allow an extension until they know when an election will happen or there is a schedule for passing the Withdrawal Agreement.

Johnson says he'll pull the WA if he doesn't get his GE when he wants it.

Marvellous. And while they all play silly b*gger games, we are six days from a potential car crash.

Still on track
at 10:34 24 Oct 2019

Before the season started, I reckoned we could afford to lose 6 and draw 12 games this season - plus 28 wins, totalling 96 points, from 46 games - to pretty much guarantee us automatic promotion (probably top spot). The highest points total for third place in the last 10 completed seasons is 90, in 2011-12.

Obviously, the number of matches is now only 44, but that will reduce the points required to win the division, too.

If Town maintain our current ratio of W8 D3 L2, we are on target to finish with (rounded to nearest*): W27 D10 L7, giving 91 points. As mentioned above, that would have placed us top two even in a 46-game division over the last 10 years.

We still have a game in hand on the two teams alongside us. Just need to make sure we lose no more than two out of the next dozen and keep draws down to nearly the same level.


* Resulted in losses rounded up, the other two down.

The player we missed most yesterday
at 13:18 21 Oct 2019

was Flynn Downes in the midfield. Breaking up attacks, taking control of the ball and distributing.

Not to fault Skuse, who was excellent, but he was being asked to do too much on his own against a tough attack (especially with the defensively weaker Edwards out on the right). Dozzell is a fine passer, but certainly not one to put in strong challenges.

Just seen a B52 circling low over Gloucestershire. That usually only happens if there's trouble in the Middle East. Hope Trump isn't planning to bomb anyone.

Right, so Boris Johnson
at 13:40 4 Oct 2019

has just told a court in Scotland that he will comply with (and not try to circumvent) the law requiring him to ask for an extension on 19th October, having previously told the Commons that he will not do so and we are leaving on 31st October come what may. To whom is he lying?

Unless he is operating under the impression that his dealmaking will produce miraculous results before that date.

The Club are missing a trick
at 12:20 2 Oct 2019

Given how wildly oversubscribed our away games are, they ought to be putting up a screen in the Fanzone and showing a live feed there (one must exist, as used for iFollow).

There would be a charge for entry, obviously, plus they could sell beer and food. There would probably also be a bit of extra trade at Planet Blue.

Of course not the same as being at the actual game, but I reckon a fair few would come along for the atmosphere of watching together.
