Really is some player isn't he? Glorious pass with the outside of the foot to set up Mane just now and that goal against City the other week was world class. When he's on song, as he seems to be this season, he's up there amongst the very elite.

I'm going for a slightly spawny 2-1 win. We'll be 2-0 up at half time and looking fairly decent. Second half we'll be underwhelming and gift them a goal from a set piece circa 70 minutes, but we'll manage to cling on and then celebrate like we've won the league.
|Five home games, zero wins|

Not including the two cup games, which would take us to seven home games and no wins. Really has to be 3 points on Tuesday now. Think many of us said that 7 points was the minimum this month and even then it would leave us with ground to make up, have to beat Donny to get to that 7 points now.

Last season when Cook came in I remember him being pretty vocal about the size of the squad and it being too bloated, especially in certain areas, and us having too many loan players. He wanted a small, quality squad that he could work hard with and get playing his way.
Fast forward to the end of the transfer window and it looks very much like we're going to have a massive squad again and, if Walton and Celina join, we'll be up at five players on loan. The start has been poor and based on Hladky's displays so far I see the need for a new keeper. But another attacking player when we already have at least 2 players for every position? Morsy looks the type of midfielder we need as our current options don't look solid enough defensively, but when we already have Carroll, Evans, and Harper signed as well as El Miz and Nolan in the first team squad you have to ask whether the first three signings were made with any great thought? Did we not foresee that we might need some steel when signing three neat and tidy players to complement the two neat and tidy players already on our books?
I'm sure this will upset some as it's become unacceptable to ask questions of the new regime, but I do find the late flurry to bolster an already very large first team squad a little unsettling. It feels very much like how the old regime operated, throw new (often temporary) additions at it if it's not working rather than showing a bit more planning and nous. I hope for all our sakes it works this time.

|Piss poor second half|

The defending for both goals was awful. Barely threatened them. This is Cheltenham ffs.

I think the EFL are going to kick us out of the competition. Having Kyle Edwards in League 1 has to count as cheating.

I've got five tickets for Day 3 of the England v India test at Trent Bridge on Friday the 6th of August. For a variety of reasons none of us can go anymore. If anyone would like them at face value drop me a DM.

Unless it's to say we should go easy on racism and sexism: https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/cricket/57383097
With a number of other Tory MPs coming out to call for the ending of taking the knee and tacitly condoning those who boo support for anti-racism, you rather have to question the value base of our government and those who support them.
|Chico - policing|

Morning my good man. You might have missed this as the big thread got pulled. I know you were saying yesterday that you feel the police don't tackle drug crime, so here is some good news this morning: https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-57262070
That's a lot of arrests, a lot of vulnerable people not being exploited (for now at least), and a significant reduction in the number of county lines over the last 18 months.
|AJ v Fury - looks like it's off|
at 11:14 20 May 2021
Wilder is enforcing his rematch clause and an arbitrator has upheld that Fury has to fight him next. Interestingly despite Team Fury's proclamations of the AJ fight being done, they already had a venue booked for July for a third fight with Wilder. Seems they've not really been negotiating in good faith, and that also tallies with them basically letting Eddie Hearn do all the leg work to make the fight happen. Not sure Fury and his team want the fight as much as they claim to.
|Away match priority |
at 08:06 19 May 2021
At the minute I know there is some uncertainty over whether we'll be back at full capacity at live sporting events and whether away fans will be allowed at the football, so this is based on a best case scenario of things going along on a good trajectory and getting back to close to normal for next season.
My question is, how do non-season ticket holders go about getting priority for away games? I know we used to have some sort of away match passport but not sure how that worked. I won't be able to go to loads of away games because of geography (and very few home games for the same reason) but I reckon there's 6 or 7 viable away days that I'd like to get tickets for. In the past as a ST holder that's usually meant high enough priority to get the tickets for away games I've wanted to attend but I'm not a ST holder anymore.
