Farewell for now
at 17:11 16 Oct 2021

Can't defend letting a 2-0 lead slip, so won't attempt to.

Similarly, not about to jump on the Cook Out bandwagon because I still believe it's too soon. Clearly the club does too with the additions of Reid and Probert this week.

With that in mind, I'm sure the debates will rage on with no discernible end in sight and I really think it is as simple as wait and see at the moment.

I know that the popular consensus is that if we don't waltz the league then we have failed with the investment that has been put in. Similarly, Cook's record and tactics have left much to be desired.

I'm just going to remind you that O'Leary said that we will need to be patient, and that there is no guarantee of success within the first year. The ownership and upper management are clearly aware of how big a task this is, I'm keeping that in mind too.

Understand and feel the dissatisfaction, not willing to be a part of the hyper-critcism that some are so easily drawn to.

See you all in a while.

I'm off to the airing cupboard for a scream.

Deflating

This was our first game that I've been able to watch this season. Nervy start where they should have scored, followed by 20 minutes of really good play where we should have been 2 up. Still some roughness around the edges but no major concerns.

Retreated and became a bit passive, Cheltenham finished the first half reasonably well. Came out after half time looking dangerous for a couple of minutes before sitting back and getting punished.

It was a good game to watch, some bright spots that give me optimism, but we fell victim to the Tozer throw which I think many of us saw coming.

Harper and Edwards should be dynamite for us this season, and considering Burgess has only been here 5 minutes, felt he did OK. Can't say I've been impressed with Hladky, nor the tactics we employed for most of the game.

Not only were the substitutions made too late, bringing on Jackson was pretty underwhelming, even considering how anonymous Pigott was for large portions of the game.

In the end, a fair but chastening defeat that could have been avoided if we hadn't taken our foot off the pedal. Feeling pretty flat after what was a promising start. Plenty of reasons to be optimistic, plenty of things to work on.

We need a win pretty sharpish, that was a tough blow to take tonight but we move on and hopefully put some demons to rest come Saturday.

Bold choice from Carroll, I've no doubt it will split the fan base.

In his honour, what's everyone else's favourite flavour of ice cream? I like honeycomb myself, but I'm not picky.

Quest HD on Freeview
at 10:11 9 Aug 2021

The picture quality for the standard Quest highlights of the EFL is awful, even in the studio. Allegedly there is a Quest HD channel available through freeview on channel 114.

I've had a good look through the channels on my TV's in-built Freeview, and the BT box but can't find it. Have done a retune on both but still no sign of it. Anyone else encountered this problem and solved it?

That was wild. Such a weird event, didn't think I'd find it so exciting but both have been very good. I'm not a horse person so that side doesn't really appeal but it was all quite a spectacle.

Kate French & Joseph Choong, take a bow

Ignore if you don't want to know the result yet...

Really feel for our fella Hughes, that was such a bad false start. Think he had a chance of a medal so not sure how you ever get over that. He's only 26 so if he looks after himself he may have another chance in 3 years but that has got to hurt.
