Although if that does happen, I hope he runs to Cook in his celebration.

1-1.

Improved performance but not enough to win and this place just repeats all the conversations of the last month incessantly.

Edit: as if we are only going to concede once, make it 2-2.

Did you enjoy School?
at 11:01 17 Sep 2021

That was clearly the right answer to your son.

I think I did enjoy school on the whole, it helped being academically bright as a child so nothing was too difficult. Bits of secondary school were crap but other kids at that age can be tw ats, but that was only odd days.

Not sure I enjoyed sixth form though, had cruised through GCSEs and didn't make the step up in motivation needed. Not like I had the best time socially either although I made up for both when I went to uni.

Yep, pretty sure my brother had one but don't remember it being very good.

Also, just seen this which would confuse kids who think waiting a second for an app to load is too long.

Really Boris? Is this what you think our country needs to focus upon

Don't get sucked into a culture war trap, it's a headline designed to encourage a small subset of the population and provoke reactions in another large chunk of it. Like this government does all the time.

It's as likely to happen as a new royal yacht.

Maybe what we all need to do....

The idea that we can't make up nine points to make the play-offs is as ridiculous as that that there is no expectation of promotion this season.

This board is just getting more tedious by the day.

It's kind of weird to blame Ashton for much at this stage when all of our problems are actually on the pitch and the work that he does to put in place a structure at the club won't be visible for a long time.

It’s odd that we’ve been so ruthless off the pitch
at 07:04 15 Sep 2021

I do think that it was the right thing for Gamechanger to leave Cook in charge, his record in this division has been good so he represented a good candidate for the immediate task (i.e. promotion to the Championship not a few games of nice football). Was their preferred choice, believed to be Appleton, likely to be much better for that task to make more disruption at that time worthwhile?

However, Cook and his coaching team are increasingly looking like the Evans' era hangover that appointment was. There's a lack of professionalism and basic effectiveness, that was evident last season however much people wanted to believe it was all down to the players. The defence is shambolic, as bad as anything since the Jewell-era and at least he managed to have three good runs in his time here.

After four wins in 16 matches last season and wholesale change this Summer, Cook needed to get off to a good start this season. This is is about as far removed from that as possible, it isn't unlucky if a team can't get the basics of defending right and it's not like we create all that much despite some good forward play.

It's not working for Cook here and I've had an increasing conviction that it just isn't going to for a while. It was right he had the chance but - unless something spectacular happens in the next few matches - then there is little point in dragging out failure.

Just wondering because that seemed to be the view last time set lost a cup match in embarrassing circumstances.
