|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:
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?

Having lost my brother last year to the same (wider) disease, and he was the same age as her, I can only feel for her family and friends.
|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.

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

|ITFC finding out it's easy to lose customers, but very hard to get them back...?|

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.

...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.
