|Mings sharing racial abuse on social media just now|
at 16:33 16 Apr 2021
I'll not link the tweet because it's uncensored and disgusting but uses the n word etc.
Yesterday I saw a screenshot supposedly of Liverpool fans sending monkey emojis to Wijnaldum if I remember rightly. I'm guessing it's hard to measure the full scale of this sort of abuse as every instance will not be reported or talked about. But what do we do?
Stigmatising and shaming these people for doing it doesn't seem to work.

Perhaps all the swing from euphoria to despair can settle a bit? If Cook walks, so be it. He's not the right man for the job is he? Getting rid of Evans was the main thing and it's done. Making ITFC something less like a 90's club and back into the 21st century is something we've been desperate for since he spaffed it all up the wall with Keane and Jewell.
Cook can hardly come out full of his wit and energy when we've produced nothing under him so far. He must be fuming with the players. If he's worth his salt he'll be hunkered down and planning what this new club can do now and how he can best direct it.
There has always been way bigger problems than the manager under Evans, they haven't magically gone away. But the point remains, this takeover was 14 months in the making and lots of doubts and derailments. It's here now, next season is when it can really be felt and live in a little.

Co-main event on a Fight Night card, but win this and he has to start getting towards a title shot.
Could be a one bit of light for Suffolk sports tonight!

I appreciate a few people always seem to question/dismiss things they aren't part of, but BA get more right than wrong in my book. Those having pops at them lately as things got fractious would do well have to read of that statement.

Feels like that will be one thing rushed through as a result of the takeover I guess.

It’d be cynical to suggest they are just laying on the charm offensive. Years of ME makes it hard to accept such a radical change of approach in terms of communication alone. The whole team behind this have been really active and I wonder if it’s more natural than a ploy to show they are totally different.
One thing that sticks out is the recognition that growth is not linear and will be done in modules on and off the pitch. That’s possibly the best message from it all.

And what would be errr blue and white ones?
I bet Phil and the Anglia boys are excited about coffee and doughnuts at pressers. I'm guessing the scouting network might change significantly. Given the pre-existing infrastructure in Denmark, Turkey and America you'd think we might have some sort of contacts that change how we bring in and send players out.
Clearly ST sales will be impacted by today's news, so it seems likely that a few quid tarting up Portman Rd until the Saxmundham Superdome is completed makes sense too.
Red and white striped away kits?

Pretty much every game under Cook (and prior obviously) we’ve changed many of the partnerships across the team. AD and Bishop being the only ones who seemed consistent. It seems obvious that in every third we misplace passes and miss runners etc. When we do get forward then short of having a crack like judge did again today we struggle to pick out a chance.
Apart from a couple of Dozzell corners and Woolf having an air shot we never looked dangerous enough. Runners stopped short or crosses went to the wrong space.
Seems clear to me Cook needs to identify who is staying and how he can put them on the pitch as much as possible now. We could really do with a Bent and Ambrose scenario too.

The latest findings from one teaching union found the following https://www.nasuwt.org.uk/article-listing/covid-impacts-on-teacher-mental-health
No other profession had the constant scrutiny and scapegoating from the government and its media chums did it? But the anonymous survey reveals grim reading at a time when people are trying to support each other still.
Then Hunt goes on to tweet some of the most tone deaf and sinister rhetoric aiming this at people.
You couldn’t get hawking the latest populist gimmick more wrong if you tried.

No idea of the legitimacy of this account but they seem to have backed it up here too

When it’s rare to win though, hard to feel much of a buzz innit.
Cook can do as he pleases for me, we ain’t going up and haven’t been in it for weeks. But it must worry him they the basics are missing whatever he does. He’s tried fitting the players to his system, today he reversed that but Chambers at LCB and Woolf sort of drifting out looked sloppy and indicated that all over the pitch we were improvising.
Very rare we went forward and you were sensing a goal. Parrott seemed to do more in terms of making stuff happen then any of the strikers out there today. How can a squad with so many options in the final third be so lacklustre no matter how bad the opposition is?

Look at that decline and where it starts. Even if we were still in the Championship, that's damning.
