Neil Young....who's he trying to kid!!
at 12:23 28 Jan 2022

Given the rather high profile questions about the money that is (or rather isn't) paid out to performers from the use of their music on streaming services, it does seem understandable why any artist might think it obscene to pay many millions of dollars for the exclusive on a rabid anti-vaxxer's podcast ramblings.

Does anyone give any kind of credence to surveys like this? How would anyone (outside of the individual players) actually know? It seems like complete guesswork to me.

Morsy replacement?
at 11:01 27 Jan 2022

Does he have the sheethouse credentials for that role? Genuine question btw.

Morsy is an enforcer, motivator as well as a creator, isn't he?

I wonder whether Bakinson is viewed as the man for this role (he showed the physique and presence for it at AFCW, I thought), or Evans (this was his role earlier in the season, wasn't it?). My gut is that (if fit) those two would be the most likely pairing.

Daily reminder that LeTissier is one of the worst people in the world
at 10:59 25 Jan 2022

Is he implying this person was vacccinated? And that this is the reason why he collapsed?

And, does he have any evidence that this person was vaccinated rather than having had COVID at some point in the past? (If we are going to draw spurious connections between unconnected matters)

106000 cases
at 12:39 23 Dec 2021

Not sure how often this needs to be said, but lets have another go.

Omicron is indeed a weaker strain. But it still puts lots of people in hospital - granted, fewer than previous strains, it's true. The latest I read was 40% fewer.

But Omicron is also more contagious. If it was twice as contagious, that would immediately cancel out relative weakness of 40%. But the indications are that it is much more contagious than that.

And, the danger is that hospitals will become overrun with Omicron patients, which not only makes it more difficult to treat the more serious cases (potentially resulting in more deaths than might otherwise have been the case) but also affects our ability to treat patients with other conditions, heart attacks, strokes, cancer, etc etc.

That's why we have to take this seriously.

Agreed. Whoever we appoint needs the full support of the fanbase and the owners - nothing is going to happen overnight, especially with a squad which has been put together in its entirety by the ex-manager.

Warnock and McCarthy are the only two managers I would have any faith in being able to transform the team we have right now. But McCarthy would be a toxic appointment, Warnock slightly less so, but would be far from popular too.

I fear we have painted ourselves into a corner by sacking Cook at this point.

Unless, as you suggest, there is a rabbit that Ashton is preparing to pull out of a hat. But it doesn't feel like that.

Yes.

Golden rule. Don't get rid of what you have until you have an alternative option in your back pocket.

We appear to have given our manager carte blanche to sack as many and sign as many as he wants; complete his squad by end of August (halfway through September, if you start from when his key man and captain Morsy was actually available); and give him a grand total of 10-12 weeks to get things in shape. And then sacked him without a plan.

Excellent work.

If you were looking to buy a property now, somewhere on the outskirts of London
at 17:01 9 Dec 2021

Yes, "Awesomestow" is great, but pricey these days.

If anyone is looking for somewhere east-ish, I'd look to Leytonstone or Forest Gate as areas which already on the up. If I was reviewing the crystal ball, I'd suggest Manor Park, Maryland as places which will start rising soon. All of Forest Gate, Manor Park and Maryland are on the Queen Elizabeth/Crossrail line which will transform those areas over the next 10/15 years.

Alternatively, in the next five years there will be decent bargains to be had more centrally, as businesses move out of the centre post-COVID, leaving loads of previously commercial premises empty. How affordable they will be is difficult to know straight away though.

Covid passport to get into Portman Road?
at 19:51 8 Sep 2021

Went to a gig on Monday night and everyone had to show their COVID pass on their phone to get in. No big deal, a bit of a queue, but nothing more than you'd expect getting into any gig.

Why do players have to find their own accomodation?
at 17:10 27 Aug 2021

Where has it been said that they wouldn't? As Joe has said, it is something that Milts used to do and I thought someone like Theo Benneworth was supposed to help now. (I might have that wrong)

But the club should be as welcoming as possible. Aside from the good impression it gives of the club, why would you not try to help someone who you are paying £100-250k a year to perform at the top of their ability settle in the area? Its just good business too, isn't it?

I would just a like a signing
at 13:32 17 May 2021

Attitude and also a player who wants to be at the club, rather than wanting away which (based on his transfer request last summer) Flynn wants to be. Plus he’ll be Cook’s signing, which will mean a lot.

This podcast Vs local media claptrap

The argument that TT “broke the story” first is just nonsense too, isn’t it? TWTD wrote it on Monday and there has long been an understanding that all but a handful of the first team squad were going to be shown the door.

Don’t worry, Joe. There is a clear distinction between what you guys do on Blue Monday (which is informed, sensible and measured) and the Talking Town crew (which isn’t). Anyone who needs to understand the difference just needs to listen to a podcast from each.

One thing I'm not sure about...
at 11:00 13 May 2021

Is your understanding that the players have been told directly, "you need to go and find a club" or "nobody is indispensible and if we get good offer for you we will consider it"?

The two sentences mean broadly the same thing, but there is a very different emphasis.

James Wilson Have I missed something ?
at 21:09 10 May 2021

I feel the same way about Nydam too. But you have to assume there is something else in the plan.

Cook has already talked about wanting a smaller squad. He may feel that with Woolfenden, Nsiala and certain youngsters, plus any planned signings, that he will have more than enough cover.

The same goes for Nydam and central / left midfield.

Ultimately, we have to trust in Cook’s planning right now.

Suspect a deal like this (and the fact she clearly has an ongoing relationship with Ed and his people) will have secured her job... if it was ever in question...
