|How toxic will it get... |

....when we inevitably meekly fall a goal behind today? I have a horrible feeling it could get nasty (by ITFC standards). I think a lot of people have turned over the past week.

...... our form has been shocking. Rewind to before the Accrington game and we were on 27 points from 11 games, 4 points clear of 2nd and 6 points clear of 3rd with one or two games in hand on most.
Over the following 20 games we've picked up just 22 points. That's the kind of form that sees you just avoiding relegation. Over essentially half a season. And sides now have games in hand over us.
Our start was so good that even if we'd managed 1.5 points a game over that period, which is usually top half but not play off form, we'd still be top right now.
Lambert has cocked this right up.

Not really much more to say than that. Any time a half decent League 1 side faces us we roll over and give them the game. Lambert doesn't have a clue as far as I can see. Norris over Holy? Good one. Lumping it to nobody every time we have kick off? Cracking stuff. We're a total shambles. The only reason we're not lower midtable is that we have a squad with much more ability than most at this level.

Huge police presence at the station and on the way down to PR. Seems wildly disproportionate, I don't think us or Peterborough see ourselves as having a major rivalry?

Apparently some did go on sale to ST holders this morning after all. I was on there bang on 10 and it said they were sold out. Did anyone have any luck?

They really do bring out the worst in us. Our last three performances against them have been three of the poorest I can remember. Two of our worst performances under Mick came against them as well.

Didn't like the look of that. Tonight looked one game too many for him.

Needs to come off. Couple of times he's had the ball in good areas and just smacked it aimlessly to nobody. Not the game for him, need someone who can break the line or stand up to them physically or ideally a bit of both.
|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.
at 17:17 12 Jan 2020
What a player. That ball for Jesus just now has me flying at half mast, I'm not gonna lie.
at 17:15 12 Jan 2020
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.
