But for how long? And is it just because he didn't get the Ipswich job?

Not RIP Vladimir Zhirinovsky
at 11:16 7 Apr 2022

Russian ultra-nationalist firebrand, thug, leader of Putin's pet "opposition" and all round unpleasant guy.

Quite the manifesto
at 10:05 6 Apr 2022

Published in Russian state-owned media, an article by a pro-Moscow Ukrainian 'political technologist' in exile on his vision for the future of the country. Which, if it reflects official thoughts and intentions, is pretty hair-raising. Here translated by Ukrainian activists:

If, having furiously sanctioned Abramovich, he turns out to not only be assisting with peace negotiations, but also ends up as the new President of the Russian Federation after Putin is toppled.

Despite my moderately optimistic post the other day
at 08:27 18 Mar 2022

I've changed my mind about the situation in Ukraine after reading some stuff and talking to well-informed people.

The Russian negotiations are largely a sham, with no chance of success if Kyiv doesn't pretty much give in to all of Moscow's demands.

Instead they want to fight a grand encirclement battle in the east of the country, which they think will lead to the destruction of a large part of the Ukrainian army and win the war. Whether that hope may be realistic is another matter, but the terrain is much more open than north of Kyiv, less suited to the ambush tactics which have cost them so heavily.

Meanwhile China is in a bind. They don't want Russia weakened and the West strenghtened too much, as it tilts the power balance against them. They are acutely sensitive to their own options for seizing Taiwan militarily should they feel the need to - while also not encouraging separatist urges within their own territories. But they also strongly do not want to upset the global commercial environment which is the basis of their own prosperity and it's Westerners who have the money to spend, far more than Russia's fairly modest economy.

Corrected, with thanks to the_egg

You aren't going to like this. But these draws, however well played and with an incredible clean sheet record, are costing us.

Based on recent form as per usual.

A quick table of how many games againt opponents from each quadrant of the division the teams in League One have left to play.

Makes me feel quite sorry for Shrewsbury!

Based on recent form, etc.

As one would expect, on an evening in which all the top teams who played won, little change. But we are still in a good position to benefit if the form of others drops.

Watching the highlights of the second goal

Jackson did pretty well to get the ball past (or under) the 'keeper and into the net from a tightening angle.
