|Summer Holidays 2020 (abroad)|
at 13:13 28 Jun 2020
Would be interested to hear what people are doing about their holidays this year.
Looks like the travel restrictions are going to be eased somewhat over the coming days. Are you looking to get away or cancelling/staying put?
I'm about to reach crunch time regarding making a decision on my holiday (which was booked well before Covid reared it's ugly head) and am in a bit of a quandary.

Anyone else watching it on bbc1? Was England’s best chance for a major trophy in recent years.
We weren’t very good on the night. Rooney going off injured didn’t help, especially when his replacement was Darius Vassell! Why we continued to pick Scholes on the left was a mystery too. Should’ve played in the middle alongside Gerrard.
How good was Ashley Cole by the way!!Truly world class.

The West Wing
Better Call Saul
GOT doesn’t appeal.
Having watched all the above (some of which reach nigh on perfection at times) I struggle to watch anything that’s not top rated on IMDB.
I guess I’ve got nowhere else to go but The Sopranos to complete the full set. Any others I need to consider?

Has there been any news on when next season’s kits will be launched? Understand these are strange times but Romeo Jnr has a birthday soon and I’d like to get him one.

Are the players motivated enough? Very few of them are good enough to cut it in the championship so why push for promotion and effectively do yourself out of a job?
Tonight was terrible but sadly all too predictable.
|So deflated tonight|
at 18:56 22 Feb 2020
Can’t be bothered to form any succinct sentences but want to get my thoughts down more as a form of therapy so here is a list of my random observations:
Glad he picked the same team after a good win last week
We were decent in first half hour. The ball just didn’t seem to drop for us
If we’d have scored then it could have been a different game
Oxford offered very little threat. They scored after their only real period of sustained possession and it was just too easy for them.
Keane is not a striker. He is not sharp enough and makes life way too easy for opposing defenders.
No idea why he took Edwards off. Lost natural width down our right
Why did he revert to 442? None of Bishop, judge, Woolf, garbutt were playing in their best position as a result. We were so disjointed after that.
Why did he not make subs earlier? We were creating very little so why not mix things up
Our crosses into the box got progressively worse as the game went on
Nolan lost grip on the midfield. Why not bring on Huws? He and Downes were forming a good pairing a few weeks back.
Why did some of our fans stand and applaud Jackson on his way off? I never understand this. He could’ve cost us dear with very few options up front.
Why do refs not tackle time-wasting tactics in this league?
The atmosphere is close to turning toxic. Another poor result or 2 and it’s all going to get very ugly for PL and Evans. I do not enjoy this.
So deflated tonight. We’re making a right mess of this aren’t we?

|Kayden Jackson - Mental Health awareness|
at 12:16 6 Feb 2020
I've not had a chance to post until now but I just wanted to say how good it was to hear Kayden on Radio Suffolk yesterday morning talking around the subject of mental health. He was speaking ahead of making a visit to a local primary school yesterday as part of Children's Mental Health Week.
He was very honest and came across really well (despite the presenter asking some annoyingly repetitive questions). Reinforces the fact that these footballers are normal young guys who have feelings and need support in the same way as everyone else.
I'm sure he will have been inspirational for the young school children he visited.

Has anyone had any experience of buying a refurbished laptop? Good or bad?
High school aged daughter needs one but don’t know whether to go for a higher spec refurbed Dell or a more basic but brand new HP/Lenovo/Acer. Budget only around £200-£300.
I’m pretty clueless about techy stuff so any advice appreciated.

They got their approach & tactics spot on tonight. It wasn’t pretty but they pressed in the right areas, won the physical battle everywhere on the pitch and continued to offer a threat even when they could’ve just sat in and held what they’d got.
Theit 229 fans did them credit too.
From a Town perspective we have to find a way to compete better when we come up against these big physical sides. We were bullied out of it tonight and if we don’t learn how to mix it better then we are only going to head in one direction. Feel like we’re finally finding out what L1 is like and we must start doing the ugly stuff better.

Jesse’s ‘Felina’ or an unnecessary extension to an otherwise perfect tv programme? I really can’t decide!
at 15:07 15 Sep 2019
Sorry if already covered on here but where was Huws yesterday? I was hoping he would be challenging for a starting position about now.
at 23:02 3 Sep 2019
Looked so comfortable tonight. Easy to forget that he’s still a relative youngster. He’s made a really impressive start to the season. Could be a big player for us this season.

Anybody got any steer on what sort of side Tottenham will field on Tuesday? Is it right that they can play a couple of senior players too?
|Holiday reading recommendations?|
at 17:18 17 Jul 2019
Can anybody recommend any good books you've read recently?
I admit to being lazy here but looking to avoid having to trawl amazon for a decent option.
I usually like fiction (crime, spy, horror) but happy to consider other genres if recommended.

Not tested much yet but he really looks the part now at centre back. Quick, physical, good on the ball and reads the game well. V impressive so far.
|Season ticket pricing|
at 18:16 13 Apr 2019
This is a big week for the club. If they get the pricing right they have a genuine chance of taking some real momentum into next season. Get it wrong and they could really do some damage which will be hard to recover from.
We have amazing support and I think we can get some big crowds next season if we get some good results early. A strong support will help the team on the pitch. The club have to get the price right though.
|Hope for next season|

The 1st half was poor. We were really flat. But the way we played in the 2ndhalf against a well organised and tough Birmingham side gives me some hope that we will be competitive in L1. Nsiala, Edwards, Judge, Bish, Jackson all looked lively. Add Nolan, a fit Huws and a few decent signings into the mix and we have the makings of a good side at that level.

I don’t like him but what a player!
|2019/20 Season ticket pricing|
at 17:10 18 Feb 2019
when do the club usually announce their pricing structure for the following season? do you think the current (mathematical) uncertainty as to which division we will be in will delay this at all?
