|Who gets to pay Lambert?|
at 15:51 26 Feb 2021
I assume he will have to go, and get paid before the takeover?
If the Yanks want their own man, surely they don't want to have his compensation on the books.

Where will we be on the 8th May?
Position 8th - after a late season surge.
Lambert absent with Long Covid / Gardening leave. Nash and Dyer in temporary charge.

I'm trying to work out what practical difference paying Lambert off will make to the club in the short term. If Evans owns the club, and owns the debt, does it just add some extra zeros to a spreadsheet of someone who has the capacity to manage it or will it have a much greater impact?
Would it prevent investment players? What investment?
Would it stop investment in the academy? We've had a some good youngsters come through but these don't seem to be getting anywhere.
Is it a case that as far as Evans in concerned, we're comfortable in L1 and producing youngsters with enough quality to cover all positions. Maybe even the odd one like Downes who can get some money in. If Evan's main business is going to be impacted by another disrupted summer of sport then he has much bigger concerns than his football club.
Best case scenario is we get an amazing turn around with a new manager and get promoted. Then what? Evans is looking at even more outlay keeping us up. Does it make financial sense for him to just sit it out in L1.
I'm not sure I really understand the point of owning a football club. Seems a silly business to be in.

Joint letter from various industry figures urging support for cinemas
Can't help thinking they've not done themselves any favours by holding back a lot of the big releases over the summer when cinemas were actually open. I know the financial impact of reduced seating is massive, but at least they would have helped the cinema chains tick over and ensure they will be there once this is all over.
I for one won't be sad to see the back of Cineworld anyway. Terrible cinema experience.
|NHS partner now getting redeployed|

All getting real in our house. Psychological Wellbeing Practitioner partner has been told they're likely to get moved over to the mental health wards in order to free up their trained nurses to move over to the main wards.
They're already swamped with PTSD cases from COVID survivors and the NHS COVID staff.
All they have to do to get compliance up is run a live feed from the COVID wards.

Anyone got a good way of cooking sprouts so my misguided sprout hating family might enjoy them?

I quite fancied seeing some real football. Was going to see Stowmarket FC this evening but its been called off due to the pox. Considered Bury but it has sold out. Any other reasonable Suffolk based suggestions without resorting to Sunday league?
I might just be missing watching young men running around in shorts, which is a little confusing.

I've had two clients who have pulled back on projects. It's not a huge amount in the scheme of things but enough to get irritated about.
One was expecting a chunk of money from the European Agricultural Fund for a phase 2 of an existing development, but as its seen as a 'new' project it won't be covered by the Government guarantee. The other is a charity who gets funding from the European Regional Development Fund so everything new is on indefinite hold util they see where new funding will be available.
