Fantastic in that second half. If he could play like that more often he'd be a hell of a player.

7 out of 9 conceded
at 16:58 25 Aug 2018

Have been from set pieces. That's really disappointing and is one of the areas we need to sort out very, very quickly. I am still confident we will come good but the longer it goes without a win the more pressure it creates, cutting out basic defensive errors would be a good start. Without the poor goals conceded we'd have had a pretty decent start to the season.

For all the former Prem 'talent' on display and the money invested in their squads this is a largely terrible game of football.

.....on here it's felt like the news commenters have collectively realised that TWTD has a forum. What is going on? I've never seen so much bed wetting and so much half-baked nonsense following a 1-0 defeat (that was somewhat undeserved) in a new manager's second game in charge. It's utter madness.

A big problem for us will be........
at 17:27 11 Aug 2018

..........our fanbase's lack of patience currently. Today's result isn't good and there's no getting away from that, but it does seem some are going OTT already with talk of a relegation battle when we're 2 games in. It was also notable last week that at 1-2 in the second half there were periods where the crowd was restless and there were moans and groans when attacks broke down.

We're very much a work in progress, a number of today's team have been at the club 5 minutes and Hurst is still getting his ideas across. It will take time for things to bed in but for all the talk on here of being happy to be bottom half if the football is better it seems that one bad result is something a chunk of our fans struggle to tolerate. If the atmosphere turns negative then it will make it really hard for us to progress and it's going to be a challenge for some of these inexperienced lads.

So yes, poor result today and a game we shouldn't be losing even whilst we're gelling. But let's not over-egg it and let's not create the kind of negative atmosphere that makes a relegation scrap a self-fulfilling prophecy.

I managed to break my laptop screen and needed to get a replacement quickly as I use it a fair bit for work. My budget is limited (under £400) so I plumped for this: https://www.johnlewis.com/lenovo-ideapad-320s-laptop-intel-core-i3-4gb-128gb-ssd

My current machine is a Lenovo (a cheap one) and it's been reliable and held its battery life pretty well. This looked a good spec for the money with a non Celeron processor and a SSD. Probably a little light on RAM but I'm only using it for word processing and browsing so should be fine. I probably should have sought advice before purchasing but can you please reassure me this is a decent purchase for the money? Reviews from end users and on tech sites were favourable.

Could this be possible this morning? And if so it'd be our most exciting bit of transfer business since when would you say? For me I'd be more impressed with this trio of signings than any of the business done thus far under ME, even when he was splashing the cash a bit more liberally.

I wouldn't have thought. Everyone will have clocked off for the evening. Hoping for at least one other signing on top of the Shrews tomorrow, ideally Jackson.

£2m for a pair of Shrews
at 11:28 6 Aug 2018

Looks an absolute steal to me I have to say. I know there's disappointment about the Waghorn fee but getting these two for under half what we're getting up front for Waghorn looks good business. An out and out striker, a versatile forward and maybe Tilt as well and it'll have been a good summer overall despite the disappointment of Waggy going.

Assuming Donacien signs.......
at 12:00 30 Jul 2018

.........what else do we need before the window shuts, assuming no departures?

For me we need an out and out CB, I like the sound of Tilt based on DanFord's expert analysis, so if we can get him that'd be great business. After that I'd probably like us to sign another wide player/forward. Someone who can operate out wide and in behind the striker. I wouldn't be against a Prem loan for that role if we can't find suitable within our budget.

If Waghorn goes then add another striker and with the extra money possibly someone like Nolan to give us a genuine attacking midfielder (that isn't injured).

It's starting to shape up nicely I reckon, especially with the youngsters pushing on.

This snippet from this article really boiled my piss:

"Scientists differ on whether the current global rash of heatwaves is definitely caused by climate change."

https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/science-environment-44956310

I'm sure they've been pulled up on this before, attempting to appear impartial by presenting both sides of the climate change debate despite the fact that the overwhelming majority of scientists agree that man made climate change exists. I was reading an article the other day about the erosion of truth and how this is partially as a result of news outlets like the Beeb giving an equal platform to views that are discredited or based on poor or no evidence. In so doing they give undue credibility to flimsy, fringe opinions for the sake of appearing to be balanced. What they are actually doing is creating imbalance by presenting a non-credible, minority viewpoint as being equally valid as one that there is broad expert consensus over. It's quite worrying.
