|Wrote off someone's car today|
at 18:36 21 Jan 2020
At work on my company motorcycle and some eejit had parked his car jutting out into the road. Ploughed into it and damaged it pretty badly, chassis all bent up. I felt a bit bad as I rode off but the boss is in trouble financially and didn't renew the insurance. Think I got away with it mind.

And that level of inequality is continuing to grow. I know it's a very unsophisticated statistic but it's still utterly ridiculous.

Not much to say about that game really. Conditions were awful. A decent point on balance. Not convinced we look like we've turned a corner ready to push for the top 2 though, we don't create much at all.
Keane looks better as an impact sub, thought we missed Jackson tonight. Norwood sometimes looks like a hungover Sunday league player and today was one of those days. Downes wasn't at his best. Huws decent again for the most part. Judge very hit and miss. Woolfy was a class apart I thought.

We've not turned up this half.

What a player. That ball for Jesus just now has me flying at half mast, I'm not gonna lie.

Where do we think he'll end up next season when Villa are back in the Championship? Maybe someone like Leicester? Would a Chelsea or a Man U take a punt perhaps? I imagine we could get a few quid out of a move if Bournemouth have a sell on.
|Lambert line up bingo|
at 12:35 11 Jan 2020
What we saying today then chaps (and female chaps)?
I think he'll stick with three at the back and expect to see something like this, though it's not necessarily the side I would pick:
I think Keane has played his way into the side now and Lambert seems to prefer Norwood to Jackson. Kenlock played well last week and I wonder if Lambert might think we have better balance in the back three playing a left footer on the left of it. Wilson might get the nod but he looks so uncomfortable in a back three to me.

This is pretty sickening. By the end of today, top executives will have earnt more than most working people in the UK will earn this year. By lunchtime they'll have earnt more than newly qualified teachers and nurses. By the end of Friday they'd earnt more than virtually all cleaners, shop workers, waiting staff, teaching assistants, health care assistants, and carers - the people that keep the world ticking over. This level of inequality is utterly absurd and unjustifiable.

Where does he rank in our worst managers of the last decade? Jewell, Keane and Hurst were all terrible failures but they were terrible failures in the second tier. Lambert thus far has failed miserably in the second tier and is doing a grand job of failing in the third tier. Best part of three months without a win at this level when he's had a year, two transfer windows, and a decent budget is utterly hopeless.
|Nice goal from Keano|

It's like a Poundland Joe Royle performance today.
at 16:39 29 Dec 2019
Get that clown out. He's had over a year and he can't put a side together.
at 15:50 29 Dec 2019
Not as good as Holy. Not ours. Perfect example of why some of us have zero faith in Lambert currently. Such a poor goal to concede and totally avoidable if the goalie makes a sensible decision.
at 15:39 29 Dec 2019
Entirely useless so far, arguably a liability. I really hope we can offload him in January. I think shoehorning him into the side has been a significant contributing factor to our poor displays.
|Day 2 - SA v England|
at 13:45 27 Dec 2019
Looks like this test is already as good as over. Pretty disciplined bowling from SA but the batting from England was bang average at best. Really not good enough having worked hard to see off the new ball.
Even if we somehow skittle them out for under 100 you can't see us chasing anything close to 200.
|England cricket team of the decade |
at 09:45 22 Dec 2019
Think a lot of the team picks itself. Main areas of contention for me were Bell or Trott at 3, who keeps wicket (Prior and Buttler the other options) and who is the third seamer. Woakes has a decent enough average and can add some useful runs so that edged him in for me.
|Interesting thread on Northern leave voters and the GE|
at 08:52 17 Dec 2019
Not saying I agree with all of it and it seeks to absolve Labour of any responsibility at all when clearly Corbyn was a big issue for voters. Some interesting thoughts though and they chime with a focus group that C4 showed extracts from where Leave voters in the North felt Brexit would only negatively impact the wealthy and so they were intending to vote for the Tories. They also saw Johnson as being honest and standing up for people like them, which is fairly incontrovertible evidence of actual brainwashing.
