Voting advice
at 11:01 6 May 2021

2 bits of advice for today:

1. Don't vote with your heart.... use the pencil, it makes a lot less mess.

2. Voting is not like marriage. You're not waiting for " the one" who is perfect. Its like public transport.... you get on the bus/train that takes you nearest to where you want to go.
Good start for England in the T20

Bowling fast and taken 3 wickets in the power play.

Pant and Kohli the key for India here.

As an antidote to all the depressing things ( Covid, Brexit, US politics), thought I'd remind people that there's a new David Attenborough series on BBC. Watched episode 1 last night, and even though I always go into these with high expectations, again, I was blown away by the quality of the cinematography, the storytelling, and the sheer pleasure of learning more about the place we live.

I love lockdown megathread

post here the positive things that come out of lockdown ( come on, lets try and counteract all the negativity) you can always ignore it if you think that its just smugness,

I'll start. I eat better at home, than when I'm in the office, and I exercise more consistently.
missing person - John Ross Dick
at 09:00 15 Dec 2020

Hi All,
This chap is a friend of a friend - and went missing 2 weeks ago, last seen heading to Ipswich by train from Bury St Edmunds.


If anyone knows, has seen him or can share this. Please get involved.

Now this is my kind of church

Supporters back?
at 14:22 23 Nov 2020

given that Ipswich has really low rates.. well, it did last time I looked on jealously from Manchester, does that mean we can put 4k into Portman road from next week?
Guess what?

It's international mens day! Woop! Go Men!

Or, we could be men, and just not talk about it!

On a more serious note, look out for each other, please. This place has been a great resource for mental health issues for a lot of people over the years. Remember, that there's people that can help you, if you have an issue, please talk to someone. It's ok to not be ok.

If you want to check it with a mate, remember Alan. Ask, Listen, Action Network..

Ask open questions like, "how are you feeling?" to start a conversation. Show concern but don't judge.

Let them speak. You don’t need to solve problems, they may just need to get stuff off their chest.

Help them make a plan of action and set some simple goals. Let them know what help is out there. Arrange your next meet up.

Build a network of support together, with other friends and family.


The youth of today...... are fab...
at 18:43 25 Oct 2020

Today has been a good day. A friend of mine's son is 18, and before lockdown, hadn't really ever done much exercise. He took up running, and, today, on his own initiative, and on his own, ran his first half marathon to raise money for a mens suicide prevention charity, James' Place.

When I heard that he was doing it, I volunteered to run with him, but Covid scuppered that, as he's in Formby, and I'm in Manchester, and we're both in Tier 3 lockdown. I ran in solidarity anyway, 40 miles apart, but together. For what its worth, he pb'd ( obviously), 2:04, as did I, 1:42.30. But more importantly, he's raised over £400 for James' Place.

I've been chiling with some beers this afternoon, but decided to listen to some music this evening.. its funny how the mind works. Walked to the CD rack, and out came Frightened Rabbit's latest album... no thought involved. It was only part way through the first song, that it hit me that Scott Hutchison is no longer with us, precisely because he couldn't find the support that charities like James' Place, and our own Oz's 12th Man provide.

So this is just a plea to everyone on here. Remember, its ok to not be ok. If you need help, please, please, ask for it. A lot of outlets for men( pubs, football etc) are not available at the moment, so even if you're currently in a good place, perhaps take an hour to check in with those of your mates that you only see at footy, or the boozer, that you've not seen, and might currently be lonely, or vulnerable.

Or if you fancy donating to an awesome charity...


Be kind. Cheers.
More attempts at divide and conquer
at 10:42 23 Oct 2020

So - after failing to negotiate with Andy Burnham, based on the line " we have to be consistent across regions", the government are now trying to bypass him completely by going individually to all the councils in Greater Manchester to do individual deals...

Greater Manchester stands together though:

Simon Harmer has won another match for essex
at 15:50 11 Aug 2020

He's so so good. Should really be playing test cricket, but its good for essex

Since signing for them, he's been ridiculously good. last year, something like 80 wickets @18s... this season he's only played 2 matches, already got 20 wickets @ 13.8

3rd test - Eng v SA
at 08:30 16 Jan 2020

Good first half hour for England. Looks like an excellent toss to win.

Dead looking pitch though, so already worried about how we take 20 wickets on this....
Not sure if this has been posted yet - what an awesome professional foul
at 12:31 13 Jan 2020

at 0-0 in extra time and apparently he got MOM for it after they went on to win on penalties...

Voting advice for today - Don't vote with your heart

Use the pencil provided. It makes a lot less mess.
Interesting idea - or devaluing?
at 08:31 10 Dec 2019


I'm not a season ticket holder, as can hardly ever get to home games... but what do those of you that way think. Good idea or no? Imagine if PR was full for every game of the run in...
Murray at it again
at 13:10 20 Nov 2019

Another Davis cup win for Murray - coming from a set down to win.

He's a remarkable competitor.
The latest stupid thing to come out of Chris Sutton
at 09:28 19 Nov 2019


apparently Harry Kane isn't certain of his England place....


Golden boot in the world cup, captain and scoring international goals for fun.

"Despite an international break in which England scored 11 goals - a 7-0 thrashing of Montenegro to secure top spot in Group A followed by a 4-0 win in Kosovo - former Premier League striker Chris Sutton said captain Kane is not certain of a starting place in the side.
"Going into the game against Kosovo, I thought two players were cemented in [England manager] Gareth Southgate's starting XI, and that would be Harry Maguire and Sterling," said Sutton.
"If you look at Harry Kane's form in the Premier League this season, you would say that Tammy Abraham has played better this season for his club.
"It is not an easy decision, but if you strip everything back and look at club form in the Premier League this season, Kane would be third choice behind Abraham and Jamie Vardy."
