England cricket best XI since 2000.....
at 13:51 11 Sep 2018

As it's the last day of the last test of the summer and Cook is retiring from International duty:

Cook
Strauss
Stewart (wk)
Vaughan
Root
Pietersen
Flintoff
Broad
Swann
Anderson
Harmison

Would probably need to tinker with the exact batting order.

I don't claim to be a student of the game as such, but just picked players I feel have performed well, assuming 5 bowlers (including 1 spinner and 1 all-rounder) and 6 batsmen (allowed by the added bonus Stewart can keep wicket as well).

The best of the rest (bowlers):Simon Jones would have got closer to the side had he not spent half his time injured, Panesar had he had some more variety and Hoggard, Giles also unlucky to miss out.
Batsmen: Bell had he not spent half his time being wildly inconsistent away from Edgbaston, Trott, Thorpe also in with a shout.

And there's bound to be at least a couple of obvious ones I have missed out.

Cook reaching his century yesterday....
at 10:47 11 Sep 2018

Was by virtue of a 5......1 run ran, and a 4 for an over-throw.

So how did he go from 96 to 100? He should have gone to 101?

How did the budgie ticket procedure work out?
at 07:56 3 Sep 2018

Where they had to show ID to match the name written on their ticket?

Did it cause bottlenecks or hold-ups?

Just wondering in advance of when we play them.

TWTD runners....
at 12:30 31 Aug 2018

Away from all the football nonsense....

When is the "right" time to replace your running shoes?

I bought a pair of Karrimor (yes, I know) last Spring when I started running and they're starting to show wear in parts on the sole (tread has completely gone in some parts).

By my rough calculations, I reckon I've done just over 500 miles in them, and a quick google would suggest now is the time to replace them....any more informed opinions from the TWTD massif?

(Yes, I will go to Coes / somewhere with the running machine to find the most suitable pair for my gait / weight etc.)

How many players have made their ITFC debut vs Norwich then?
at 11:01 31 Aug 2018

Walters and Young's second debuts on Sunday if they play, and the new CB if he signs, who else?

Pollitt
Bates
Vernazza

Any others?

Edit: Sorry I mean Graham, not Young... don't know where that came from!

Unpopular opinion time. Bloody hell. Not Jon Walters.
at 15:42 29 Aug 2018

He was rubbish the first time round.

Although I guess a few years in the Prem would have helped him improve.

What's the betting the numbskulls specifically boo Rhodes?
at 13:48 29 Aug 2018

He played handful of games for us before being bombed out (rightly or wrongly).

Booing him above any other budgie is pointless, he's got minimal history with us.

ITFC finding out it's easy to lose customers, but very hard to get them back...?
at 13:43 29 Aug 2018

Even for the derby.

All the people who have stopped going in recent years have now got out of the habit of going and have other things to do.
Moaning about the price / manager is simply the most convenient excuse.... they were never going to come flooding back in their thousands as soon as Mick was gone.
Once Hurst starts to produce results, word gets out that we're a decent side again and we start to consistently play well, then they'll come crawling back.

Jerome now looking like he will be going to Turkey...

...and doesn't want to join ITFC and sour his memories of playing for Norwich.

Never mind. Fair play to him to actually having some feeling for a club he has played for (even if it is them), many footballers just see the job and the pay-day and have little emotional investment in the team they play for.
