listen 'bor
at 08:58 19 Mar 2020

Listening to a lot more radio, and struck by the number of vaguely Geordie accents out there.

Got me thinking, how many East Anglian voices are there in the national media, including sports media?
Chris Sutton I'd count as national, Terry Butcher perhaps. Even people like Steve Lamacq and Tom Ravenscroft to my mind don't have full-on' East Anglian accents. (I remember watching 'Twenty Twelve', the Olympics-build-up comedy and thinking that the guy in charge of traffic was almost the first person I'd seen on tv talk properly since John Bond! )

Many seem sure that Town will be in League 1 next season, so who’s coming down? Some biggish clubs in the mix, like Stoke and Middlesbrough. But everyone seems to be putting up a fight, most notably Wigan.

Badge comparison

Ahead of tomorrow’s game I did a bit of research to find out which is stronger, an ox or a dray horse. It seems that the ox can pull loads twice as heavy as the horse, but the dray horse can pull a load twice the distance that the ox can in the same time. It’s not worth having oxen for ploughing unless the soil is very very heavy.

Atalanta's squad
at 22:10 19 Feb 2020

I thought I'd brush up on Atalanta, and looked at their Wikipedia site. The number of players they have out on loan seems extraordinary to me - I counted about 65. I know Chelsea, for example, are said to have a few sprinkled around the place, but I have no idea if Atalanta are freakish by Italian standards. (I guess it would be simple enough to google a few more clubs)

Rhymes with 'push'.
at 16:16 11 Feb 2020

Does anybody still call people 'moosh'? (I don't know how to spell it, but it rhymes with 'bush', 'push'.)
It was a common word in the 70s and 80s, at least in north Essex. Was it an East Anglian word? Or a general southern word? Was it used only to people you knew, or to strangers? Has it been completely been made redundant by 'mate'?

Can’t be many countries in the world where in the fifth division away fans have to make a trip like that on a Tuesday in early February.

John Coleman

I liked John Colman's remark that he is looking forward to coming to Portman Road because it's a ground he's never visited, the 83rd of the 92 ... or sadly 91 at the moment. (When you think he scored over 500 goals in non-league football, he must have been to a hell of a lot of grounds!). Nice that he keeps count, like a fan. Maybe he rates the pies, too.

Sunday
at 11:47 1 Dec 2019

I understand the position at Coventry (Birmingham) , but is there any obvious reason why so many of the other FA Cup games are being played today? A few will be on tv, but not most of them. Is Sunday actually clubs' preferred day to play football these days? If so, why?

2002 Champions League Final

Celtic folklore, I'm told.

Real Madrid v Bayer Leverkusen in Glasgow. (And that Zinedine Zidane goal.)

In the week before the game Paul Lambert got a call telling him that as the game was in Glasgow and as he had won the trophy, he'd been selected to hand over the cup to the winning captain. So come the day he turned up suited and booted and looking for the royal box, - and his team-mates left it to the last minute before letting him know who'd made the phone-call.
