I wonder if any of our new owners or managers were watching that?
at 20:49 30 Apr 2021

I'd be surprised, given how busy they are and all their other interests (especially the American owners). Although you never know.

They could do a lot worse than pay attention to that match, and the reaction of the fans. They could build on this. The reaction to the game proves they have inherited a fan base that is desperate to be entertained and for any little bit of success, at any level.

Age group teams are normally ignored by fans and are kept fairly separate in comms from the club, but could they build on the relative success of our other squads? Or at least build on the desire and quality they show. Yu never know, big up these qualities and maybe some of it will rub off on the first team! It looks like the U18s represent the qualities the owners are looking for.

If they want to connect the club to the the town and to the fans, making more of the achievements of our age group teams can all help. A real 'one club, one family' approach if you like.

Just in case anyone hasn't heard

I think it's 3-2 to Town. Surprised nobody's mentioned it.

Should have been 4-2 mind.

Obviously the goalless run will dominate the headlines

But apart from that I quite enjoyed that second half. We played some pretty decent football, moved Wimbledon around and created some good openings. We just lacked that bit of quality around the box. Edwards and Dobra both wasteful. Stick a Murph or Waghorn type in there and they'd have got a couple on another day.

No doubt the Cook outers will be out in force, so I'm off to enjoy the last of the sun.

Interesting little article on Iceland's success with coronavirus

Spot the contrast to us:
- Pre-existing plan before first case
- Medical not political lead
- Immediate, hard line action
- Aggressive testing & tracing (real detectives on the team) - tracing system in place before first case
- International and domestic strict quarantine from the start

A much smaller country of course, but then I think it's pretty clear it's the activity not the size that's the critical factor.

For comparison - we have had about 1,890 deaths per million, they've had 81 per mill (29 in total).

Fascinating place and well worth a visit for those who haven't had the chance to go.

Lol, this keeper

Just after the home commentary team we're saying how their manager thinks this is the best 2 keepers he's ever had. Flapped a cracker leading up to the corner and that was just awful

Didn't realise it was Bobby Madley. How the mighty have fallen. He gave the worst reffing performance I've ever seen about 8 years ago in the PL down here at Swansea. Expect a major eff up.

For those that have been following developments on this, do you think this is the start of something we could see nationally or just a token gesture by the mayor that will disappear as soon as he does?

Vegetarianism and veganism
at 18:56 24 Feb 2021

I genuinely believe we need to break down the stigma around these. I’m convinced they are better both for us, animals (obviously) and the environment. Particularly I think we need to challenge the ‘macho’ view around eating meat, as let’s face it that’s a load of balls; it’s not as if we’ve gone out and hunted it at great risk to ourselves.

Having said that, we’re having fillet steak tonight. And I’m really looking forward to it . A little bit of mixed spice on it, triple cooked chips and some petit poi’s (or as we say post-Brexit little peas). Lush.

"Luke, not being Mr Popular".

Really? I thought he's had a good season apart from dropping off a bit lately. He was excellent earlier on but just getting a bit leggy as the matches catch up (same as Ward).

Oxford winning again, nicked a first goal deep into added on time. Puts them 3 points behind 6th with a game in hand.

I wouldn't' say the second half is massive, but the table could look very different depending on how this one finishes.

No, not for us unfortunately. The locals down here have just signed him for the rest of the seasons on loan.

We had him under Keane for a season didn't we, but I can't remember what the view was of him at the time. He never got a game, which may have been our loss as he's gone on to have a pretty good career since. Another one let go too soon?
