Moaning about how we got here and who's to blame doesn't solve anything. Prior to leaving, the Norway boats delivered the cod & haddock to the UK for our fish & chip shops and our boats delivered their catch to the EU markets. Norway and Iceland continue their trade as they have an EU agreement and there's a transition period at the moment that allows them to carry on business as usual. Our boats are moored up because Norway and Iceland are not part of the EU and we have no agreement with those countries so can't fish in their waters anymore. If this continues, and it will without an agreement, the UK fishing industry will go bankrupt as it mostly comprises of one owner/one boat or at best a small fleet of 2 or 3 boats. This suits those countries who operate within the EU agreement because it will be less competition when there's no UK boats. Someone better pull their finger out and get the easiest trade deal in history completed pronto. We still hold all the cards don't we?
In the many threads for POTY that are flooding the board today I came across a post from Keno that suggested we give it to Phil Ham. So, a new award of Teachers Pet of the Year (TPOTY) is called for. This award is also known as the Biggest Suck Up but still. Complete the following... I think Phil Ham is amazing/wonderful/gorgeous etc because........
The advantage of living in Felixstowe was that the road out only went to Ipswich. Standing on the High road/Garrison Lane corner with your thumb out, wearing a Town scarf, guaranteed a lift to the match from someone - even on a Tuesday evening.
According to the Independent his mobile number was first posted online 15 years ago. He's changed his phone but not the number, which he insists on keeping 'cos all his friends know it. Trump was said to have kept his own phone which the FBI rated as 'insecure' and refused a government secure phone. Not so great minds think alike.
The bottom 6 are the only ones in jeopardy. My interest is in Burton. If we lose our last 3 games (quite possible) and they win their last 2, the goal difference could end up being in their favour and they could sneak above us. That would put us in the bottom half. Just remember they were a basket case before Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink became manager.
The 'money' model in English football seems ever pervasive. I don't hear anyone in English football lauding the German model of fan ownership. I can only think of AFC Wimbledon as an example of a successful fan-owned club and they had to resurrect their Club after the MK Dons theft of the original club. This would be a step in the right direction of involving fans in the running of the clubs.
A scrambled effort that ends in the net. 2 Town players both claiming to have got a touch but there's an opposition player with his head in his hands and his team mates are swearing at him. There's no VAR and the one camera angle is inconclusive.
