Amidst the valid criticisms of racism there is still some self-reflection needed
at 00:12 15 Oct 2019

Barney Ronay is correct here, there is an unpleasant xenophobia around some England fans still.

Morning All

I'm looking forward to today, perhaps the kind of match that will tell us more about how this season will finish. Why? I think we are perfectly asset up for away matches in this division, and four wins and a draw from five, reinforces that but I'm not quite sure Lambert has worked out a clear approach for home matches.

The first half against Sunderland was very good, the second against Wimbledon too but in a different way, applying pressure and forcing chances against a highly defensive team. The only real thing in common between those two halves that we have better players than most teams in the division. Again, we're set up to break well but I'm less sure about trying to dominate matches. Here the myriad options might be as much curse as blessing in establishing a clear pattern of play.

That said, the Shrewsbury game was the first 'comfortable' home win since Reading in December 2017 so another one of them would be lovely.

Also today, we'll be selling Turnstile Blues outside PR from 13:30.

Cricket: Lovely piece on Marcus Trescothick from Dobell
at 11:55 24 Sep 2019

It's right to highlight as well that his openness about mental health issues will be more important than his cricket. And that was pretty important to the success of the England team between 2001 and 2005.

This Boris Johnson story from the weekend won't go away quickly

At the very best it's an utter careless in his willingness to disregard basic rules of governance. That alone should disqualify him from being Prime Minister or it might have done in earlier times.
