Why is there no outrage at middle-class benefit cheats?
at 10:10 20 Jan 2020

This is worth a read.

On a linked point, the reasons the DUP were so reluctant to close off loopholes will no doubt be the subject of further enquiry.

Cricket: England making slightly hard work of this last wicket
at 09:31 20 Jan 2020

Still, Marharaj has given those who've turned up something to watch:

Rain not forecast until the afternoon so should still be ok.

Saturday the best away win since when?
at 08:32 20 Jan 2020

I've enjoyed plenty of away matches this season but I think Saturday was the best for a number of reasons - the day as a whole, coming from behind, finishing a good week to get the season back on track. Just one of those matches that I'm glad I was there for.

What else come close in recent years? Swansea probably although I wasn't at that one. The 0-4 at Reading was fun but it was an end of season, slightly freakish result.

What else?

- Millwall 4-3 2017
- Watford 2015
- Brighton 2014 (Smith & Murphy) and Dec 2015
- Derby in 2013 (Edwards late winner)

Cricket: Really good day for England

Just watched Storyville on the Jonestown Massacre

It was really hard watching but excellent television. I kind of knew the outline of what happened but the detail is horrific.

Worth watching both parts though, on iPlayer at the moment.

More Derby news

This will be interesting, normally clubs that overspend like that at least get promoted and are out of reach of the EFL.



No doubt they'll bottle it though.

What time did anyone get home last night?
at 07:36 15 Jan 2020

I got in at 00:45 which wasn't too bad, but would have been 30 minutes earlier without the delay. I feel quite awake so far.

Good support yesterday anyway, in both numbers and noise.


Edit: the fact I got the time wrong by 12 hours might suggest I need more caffeine.....

Are people really moaning after that?
at 23:47 14 Jan 2020

Conditions were awful, parts of the pitch was sodden at times and we were playing a decent League One side in better form than us. And yet we controlled the midfield, conceded few chances and created decent opportunities. The only real criticism would be not getting more shots away.

But we look more like a team again rather than the disjointed bunch of players against Gillingham less than a fortnight ago. The belief and intensity is back up and, especially given conditions, that was a good point.

Looked a clear penalty too....

Monday mornings are more bearable after a win
at 07:40 13 Jan 2020

It's been a long time since the last one, and that was my first day aback at work after three weeks in Australia.

One win doesn't solve everything of course but the infusion in confidence after the first goal was good to see. It wasn't just that though the tempo was right from the start, the support - a slightly smaller crowd - was positive almost throughout.

Lambert has always had it within him to turn things round on the pitch, mainly by not over-thinking and over-analysing. That has lead to the recent heavy rotation and subsequent incoherence. Hopefully we can build on that this week and it will turn out that December is a better time to have a poor run than March and April.

Shame we're back to over-analysing every utterance made in one though, it was tedious when it was Burley's press conferences and it's got no less so over time.

Right, time to put all the frustrations to one side and get behind the team
at 08:33 11 Jan 2020

Lambert isn’t going to get sacked before the Summer now no matter how critical fans are. We need to go up this season or we’ll be down here for years as Evans trims his spending to match his ambitions.

We need three points today and we need the support shown at the back end of last season. We also need Lambert to get some continuity into the team but we can’t do much about that.

A little harsh to say that we thought he was 'washed up' as apart from a handful of rather vocal people most appreciated the most skillful player at the club.
