Two game touchline ban for Lambert
at 11:04 21 Feb 2019

Effective for the Wigan and Reading games. Not ideal. £20k fine for the club too.

The data breach
at 16:47 31 Jan 2019

Think the data may have been released this afternoon. I had about 5 emails in as many minutes from Netflix saying I'd had a log in with a new device and they were pretty spread across the globe. My Netflix is the same email address and password I had on here, forgot to change it on Netflix. Might be entirely unrelated but just FYI.

On what rational analysis is crashing out with no deal a better outcome than seeking a delay? This is just reckless self-interest on his part.

Meet the new deal, same as the old deal
at 07:21 21 Jan 2019

So after all the talk of trying to build a parliamentary consensus to move things forward, May is coming back to parliament today to present a Plan B which is still her deal but asking the EU nicely to amend or remove the backstop. The EU have been clear there's no more wiggle room on the backstop but she's so fixated on her deal that she's just trying to eek out enough support from the DUP and the ERG to squeeze it through. It won't happen, her deal was voted down by a margin of 230 votes ffs.

Excellent work, Mrs May. You're really earning your money on this one.

Midfield diamond?
at 08:56 18 Jan 2019

I mentioned the other day that it might be something we try to use and SomethingBlue pointed out that Lambert has used such a system effectively before. We lack a bit of quality out wide so a more narrow midfield would enable us to negate that weakness and look to control games. With Judge making it clear he sees himself as a number 10 I do wonder if that's the way we're heading.

When everyone is fit you've got Skuse anchoring, Huws to the left, Bishop to the right, and Judge at the point in the number 10 role. We'd have Chalobah as cover for Skuse and possibly Bishop, Downes as an option to cover Bishop too, Dozzer to cover Huws and Lankester deputising for Judge. Sears goes back to being an option off Keane or Quaner, though I suspect mainly from the bench.

The one question mark is whether our full backs are good enough to offer some width on the overlap, I'm not convinced, but otherwise that looks a good way of setting up to get enough creativity and goals in the side whilst retaining a solid platform.

A glimmer of hope.....
at 22:47 1 Jan 2019

....is that we are currently not in the bottom 3 in the form table even though today was our third loss on the bounce. I say this not to make out that we aren't doing badly, we clearly are, but to highlight that the likes of Reading, Bolton and Wigan are doing even worse. They all got tanned today. We need to be better to bridge the gap but given how awful these three (and Rotherham) are I still don't think it's entirely out of the question we could stay up. However, for that to happen we need some quality through the door very quickly. With a decent striker and one or two better defenders we'd have put Millwall away comfortably today I think and they've been in decent form. With a bit more quality at both ends I look back on some of our other performances lately and think we could have taken more points from them.

I'm going to try and enjoy watching the kids....
at 16:00 8 Dec 2018

.....progress this season and I'll be giving 100% support, but it has to be said that we are relegation certs. Everything about us says a side going down. Sounds like a decent enough first half display but we can't score and can't keep a clean sheet and too often we concede at crucial times. Hurst really, really fcked us. The side we had this time last season would tan our current squad and that is purely down to the poison dwarf.

Lankester is going to be a baller though and if we can keep most of the kids and add some experience around them I think we'll at least go down with dignity and have a decent shot at bouncing back. It's not what I want and is fraught with risk but I don't see any saving us this season.

I'd be interested to know what those who are won over by Lambert but who consistently slate Knudsen make of the fact that Lambert is keen to get him offered a contract? Do you put it down to a rare misjudgement from him or are you prepared to entertain the idea that you might have got it wrong?
