What is the point in VAR if it doesn’t pick things like this up?
at 13:28 20 May 2022

I really wouldn't.

It's a feckin throw in for god sake, not really comparable to taking a penalty a foot from the spot. Majority of free kicks aren't taken exactly where the foul was and no one really says anything.

This is just sour grapes.

That FA Cup Final was ok but
at 22:38 14 May 2022

The FA Cup has been crap for years, and not a patch on the event it used to be up until the 90s.

However I quite enjoyed watching today's game, both sides really tried to win it and despite it being 0-0 was a decent game i thought.

Brendon McCullum new England Test Coach
at 08:55 12 May 2022

The last paragraph of this post has it exactly right unfortunately!!

The problem with English cricket is the ECB, not (always) the coaches, the players or talent pool!

So depressing, i wish McCullum all the best but this smacks of an ill thought and desperate appointment.

does look like we have a bit of talent which is fantastic to see.

Will be a big pre-season for a few of these guys. If they show something in pre-season training they'll be involved i think

I don't think Mckenna will change too much other than left flank and striking options.

He may well be, and if he is i have absolutely no doubt Humphrey's will get his chance next season.

If he's good enough he will play.

Unfortunately Kerion got too emotive about the whole issue. It's a real shame he left how he did, why on earth he didn't stay until the end of the season to lead the U23s to glory is really very strange.
I wonder if a part of him regrets what he did and he handled it.

Is Bonne going...
at 16:52 30 Apr 2022

No we need to move on.

The fact he still couldn’t score in a 4 nil dead rubber and the man who replaces him who has been let go scores 3 mins later.

I like Bonne but his 2nd half of season has been an absolute disaster and he looks a bit lost. Bit sad really as I know he has had many personal life issues but Town can’t take chances next season and Bonne would be a huge risk based on what we have seen in recent months

I think they are pretty good compared to other banks I've dealt with. Changed bank 10 years ago to FD and never had any issue and customer service is generally very good.

Annual MOT to be scrapped
at 15:03 28 Apr 2022

Pathetic

MOTs aren't the expense, general upkeep of cars in. The cars poorer households have unfortunately tend to be older and need more up keep

This just increases the amount of potentially dangerous cars on the road. It really is a crazy decision.

If they wanted to save the money for people why not half the fee of the MOT test??

I'd say Vidic has to be up there if we are talking about defending and defending alone.

But is it definitely Covid?
Lot of other stuff going around.
I’ve still avoided Covid but come down with a stinking cold. First time I’ve been ill since 2019. Been ill since Sunday, tested everything day and all negative.
Sore throat, then blocked sinuses and runny nose and now a really dry and scratchy throat that is really rather unpleasant.

I am sure it's been mentioned already. But anyway, Bannan?
at 09:33 25 Apr 2022

well it's not really surprising when the people running the competition don't even understand some of the skill of Celina's goal.

In the EFL reel of the six goals they play a replay for each goal. In Celina's replay they don't even include the touch to kill the ball dead, they only include the chip.

Bannan's goal won because it's most recent and he played in the prem for Villa so people will have heard of him....that's how these things work right?

I don't think Bannan's was even the 2nd best goal of the 6, ridiculous.

So you're basically saying had we played a load of youngsters we'd finish higher than 9th. I don't think so...who's to say we'd be even further off the picture.

The club has changed hugely in 12 months and Paul Cook made a hash of things which has set a lot back including pathways for youngsters. You can hardly blame Mckenna for coming in halfway through a season and sticking with tried and tested experienced players, especially when we had such good form for the initial months and were still in play-off mix. Only the loan signing of Bakinson was perhaps questionable as to whether we played a younger but he was a decent signing so it was fine with me. Thompson was brought in but i can't see that we had one of our own fighting for that position so that was also fair enough.

The one player i think would have been good to see get a look in was Simposn considering our misfiring strikers...yet I think Simpson has messed that up himself with his attitude at being recalled from the loan. I really think if he had acted more maturely he'd have got a few minutes towards the end of the season and he and us would have found out whether he could have been a L1 striker for us next season.

I don't see what more Mckenna could have done regarding this season and our younger players. Now i expect he will be sizing everyone up and balancing whether he has players in the u23 set up who can step up or if he needs to go and sign players for those positions that are needed.

I don't really get this blocked pathway thing. Maybe chances are limited but they are there if you are good enough.

If they warrant being in first team they will play. Downes and Dozell played lots of games. Woolfie took time but that was more down to his performance and it's taken a decent manager to get a tune out of him which is now paying off.

El Mizouni has had chances and done ok but nothing more than that, he's not exactly given anything that says 'I must play'.

Dobra pretty much nothing when he played for us, and his loan at Colchester shows he's probably miles off first team picture here.

I'm sure Humphreys, Baggott et al will gets some chances in coming season and if anyone excels in pre-season Mckenna will have them in first team squad.

If people want more youth and academy in the first team then be prepared to be stuck in L1 for another 5 years as they are not good enough to get us out of the division. If they were they would be in the first team.

Annoyed maybe but definitely not angry.

His attitude stinks and we're better off without players with that mentality anyway.

He's had very little time at Town since Mckenna has walked in the door, nearly every town player has spoken highly of the manager and yet he wants out. See ya then
