Lambert out, Paul Cook in please
at 18:01 29 Aug 2020

Marcus really needs to put Shambert and us out of our collective misery and replace him with Paul Cook while he is still available. Looking at his record over recent years and it really is quite impressive.

Chesterfield - Promotion from League Two as Champions followed by finishing 6th and in the play-offs in his first season in League One.

Portsmouth - Again promotion from League Two as Champions, after which he was poached by Wigan.

Wigan - Promotion from League One as Champions, followed by retaining Championship status the following season. We all know what happened last season of course, technically they were relegated under Cook but without the points deduction would have been comfortably mid table.

All of this was achieved while playing an attractive brand of passing football, I think he would really get the best out of our talented youngsters.

Cooks win percentage with Wigan was 41.3, Lamberts at Ipswich is 26.9. When you also consider that two of those seasons for Cook were in the Championship it really is a no brainer.

Come on Evans, take decisive action and make a good decision for once.

Staying inside for too long can weaken the immune system

Maybe those people going to the beach to get fresh air and sunshine rather than staying indoors aren't quite as stupid as they seemed.

Novak Djokovic against mandatory vaccination
at 17:04 20 Apr 2020

Novak Djokovic has revealed he is against mandatory vaccination and it could put his tennis career in jeopardy if he is prevented from travelling due to not agreeing to take a future Covid-19 vaccine.

It's a shame the press have to leap in with the immature 'anti-vaxxer' remarks instead of engaging in sensible debate, after all this raises an important debate around civil liberties. If the likes of Bill Gates get their way, nobody will be able to work, travel or do pretty much anything else unless they are up to date with all vaccines and eventually have a microchip or some kind of biometric id to prove it.

To my mind maintaining sovereignty of your own body and what goes into it is a fundamental human right, as are the right to work and travel. If we allow the state to mandate medical interventions in order for us to be active in society then we are going down a potentially very dark road in my view.

I am all for making a vaccine available asap for people who feel they need it but I would strongly oppose it being mandatory, after all if the vaccine works then why should anybody who takes it need to fear somebody that doesn't?

I realise Covid-19 has changed the the landscape considerably but I hope most would agree with maintaining the basic right to medical choice and health freedom. What do the good people of TWTD think?

They really need to get a grip on testing
at 11:20 19 Mar 2020

This case from Lowestoft is a little worrying with regards to lack of testing.

https://www.eadt.co.uk/news/highly-suspected-coronavirus-kelly-eade-lowestoft-su

"The mum-of-three said paramedics recorded her as having COVID-19 in her medical notes. Although she says she was not officially tested, paramedics ruled out other illnesses including flu, a cold and a throat infection."

Is it not a little concerning that this case was seemingly recorded as Covid-19 without any test having taken place? Surely if somebody is ill enough to require paramedics and their symptoms match they should be a priority for testing to get it confirmed as fact, not a best guess?

From what I can see Covid-19 symptoms are not notably different to other seasonal respiratory illnesses that in previous years would have just been put down to 'a virus' (unknown ) by your GP. I have experienced this myself and I'm sure many others have, so how can they be certain this is Covid-19 and not a different virus?

It seems to me at the moment that in reality they have absolutely no idea what the actual scale of the breakout is in the UK, so how can huge decisions like shutting down the economy be made on guesswork and statistical modelling?

James Henry
at 14:24 26 Feb 2020

11 goals and 8 assists this season for Oxford, very impressive stats.

Isn't that what a certain ex championship attacking midfielder was supposed to do for us this season?

Is Henry that much better than Judge or does his Manager just know how to get the best out of him?

Time for Lambert to step up
at 14:47 25 Feb 2020

If Lambert has anything left at all as a Manager, he needs to find a way to win matches again at this level with the players he has available, starting Saturday.

The margin for error is now so small that I believe we need at least seven points from the next three games just to give us a fighting chance of finishing top six.

Blackpool is a must win to try and regain some sort of confidence and momentum, it really is make or break now. Not finishing top six this season really will be a monumental failure, and one that should cost him his job regardless of the contract.

Personally I think he is finished as a Manager and I don’t think he can turn this around. I really hope he proves me wrong.

I wouldn't sell Woolfenden for a penny under £8m
at 13:15 14 Jan 2020

And even that may be too cheap, he could potentially be worth 3 times that in the next couple of years.

Having seen both Wolf and Webster play at Town at similar ages I think the Wolf is going to go on and become a better player.

I don't care what division we are in £3m is an insult and nowhere near market value for an up and coming English ball playing centre back. Tell the blunts to do one.

The player himself might well want to leave but he is under contract and therefore until the valuation is met he should be told categorically that he is going nowhere.

This is a rather harrowing tale
at 11:24 21 Apr 2019

A well written piece by a young lady which highlights what we already knew, that there is still real ignorance and racism in certain white majority communities.

I do have to disagree with the author though regarding use of the N word. For me it should be consigned to the waste paper bin of history and socially outlawed by all communities, black or white.

At least we are not Norwich
at 08:52 15 Apr 2019

Top of the league and absolute certs to go up but seemingly they are too 'nervous' to support their team or make any noise unless it is to slag off one of their own young academy players.

From the Pink-un -

"REALLY POOR SUPPORT TODAY - Considering how many of us made the trip, the noise from our end was disappointing. I know we're nervous but this felt like a game where we had to give the lads an extra 10% and we just didn't. Far too many people sitting on their hands waiting to be entertained as though it's our divine right to turn sides over. Not interested in making any noise unless it's to discourage products of our academy."

"HOW UTTERLY POOR WAS TODD CANTWELL TODAY - Weak, ineffective, positional play was poor.
no way should he be starting for us.
i never ever want to see him start for us ever again"

I know its only two morons off a message board, but really? What a contrast to the support we showed on Saturday for our club on the day we were relegated. If we were in their current position I am absolutely sure the support would be total and unanimous.

I really hope they get some absolute hidings next season to give them some more to blub about.

Keep the diamond, two up front and go for it. We have nothing to lose.

Skuse out because his form is terrible. Bishop in because he is better than Nolan. Jackson in as I think he might have something to offer in a front two.

Simply not good enough
at 17:24 2 Feb 2019

We have played three mid table teams in a row and not even managed to scrape a point, we really are going down without even the merest hint of a fight.

Yet again all the other teams at the bottom dropped points but it doesn't even matter, we are simply not good enough to ever capitalise are we.

Sad times.

Set pieces

We have been terrible at both ends of pitch all season haven't we? I could be wrong but I make it Swansea away when we last scored from a free kick or a corner.

This is one area where Lambert has disappointed me I have to say. I had hoped he would improve us but we still look likely to concede from one every game whilst offering minimal threat at the other end.

For a side that creates little from open play you would think this would be a top priority.

“The truth is that I’d be playing in the park with my mates if I wasn’t playing here, so any level will do as long as someone wants me at 37 or 38. I’ll still give my all, as always, in every training session and every game.”

Absolutely love this, great attitude.
