Earlier on today a crowd of just over 15,000 was estimated for tomorrow’s game
at 19:34 2 Nov 2018

Some of us have to work at the weekend. You may not have heard but not everyone does the mon-fri 9-5.

Been to five of the seven home games so far. I'll be there in spirit tomorrow and can't wait to get to the next game (WBA, I think).

Hands up if you booed yesterday
at 12:37 23 Sep 2018

Nope, never booed the team off and wasn't going to start yesterday. I applauded the players that came to applaud the fans and will continue to do so. We're in a serious predicament and Hurst needs to get a grip on things quick, but creating a toxic atmosphere for players who, to me, look very low on confidence really isn't going to help. We may not have won a game but we are also yet to lose at Portman Road so let's not make it a place our own players fear.

God, what a day.

I was 15 and at the game with my dad. Obviously the Millwall animals ripped the away sections to shreds but walking home through the PR car park we passed some little Millwall fella giving it the big one on the street corner, offering-up everybody who walked past. One of our fans, walking by, kept quiet and discreetly flicked his cigarette at him. The fag butt hit the Millwall lad on the head, he retaliated and knocked the (much bigger) Town fan spark out with one punch. He was face down on the tarmac. I remember being really worried for him as it didn't look pretty.

I'm glad football violence is largely under control now. It's the height of stupidity.

Maurice Steijn

To put this is context...

VVV Venlo are a small club by Eredivisie standards. They've spent much more time in the second division over the past few decades so the club is doing quite well to be 12th with a ten point cushion from the relegation play-offs. Steijn won the second division last year and it looks like Eredivisie status is safe this year so he's doing a good job.

That's said, Steijn would be a huge risk but I certainly wouldn't be averse to taking a chance on a foreign coach with fresh ideas over the same old faces on the English managerial merry-go-round.

Still looks awful now the initial dust has settled

It wouldn't look so bad if the logo was designed to be more harmonious with the shirt, so to speak.

Drop the background and stars leaving just the 'Magical Vegas' text in white...that would look ok. Or just a monochrome version of the current logo with everything in white and a transparent background so the colour of the shirt forms the background of the logo.

Opinions on the nature of the sponsor aside, the logo is garish and tacky. There are too many colours going on for it to look good on a football shirt.

That Talk Norwich City video with Benjamin Bloom on
at 01:53 14 Feb 2018

Managed to get through the full hour and seven minutes, mainly because I enjoy Ben's work. The other TNC host is a good lad but that Chris is something else. Seems even many Norwich fans don't like him going by the comments. A bit of banter is fine but smugness and condescension from start to finish just made him look a complete knob. Ben did really well there.

Mind you, as a football podcaster, Ben's a cut above these two.

The NHS is in the best state of its life, so why are Labour attacking it?
at 22:02 10 Jan 2018

Labour's PFI contracts under Gordon Brown are the reason the NHS is so burdened by debt today. Whatever Labour may have achieved regarding the NHS in the Blair-Brown years came at a very heavy price that is crippling the service today and will do for generations.

Oh, the Tories aren't much better. Another talentless bunch with a few exceptions. Theresa May is a statist, not a proper Conservative, so I wouldn't say the Tories are poles apart from traditional Labour. It's just Labour have taken a lurch to the hard left.

But you're right, our education system (as with most institutions) has been over-run by lefties. Once students grow up, get a job, mortgage, kids, pension...then they (should) realise why socialist policies are a bad idea.

They haven't had my vote for some time and will unlikely ever get my vote again.

I find the current crop on the opposition benches particularly disgusting. Corbyn is a terrorist-sympathiser, McDonnell is a Marxist, Abbott is clueless. I'm amazed they polled so high at the last election.

Let's not forget that Labour had 13 years to get the NHS into better shape and failed to do so. The Tories have had ample time over the years to privatise it...and haven't. It's not a black-and-white Labour=good, Tories=bad issue.

Labour use the NHS as a political football. Always have done.

The elephant in the room is immigration, which is putting huge stress on the NHS. It's not just an ageing population to blame, the NHS is being abused by health tourists. Easy problem to solve if the political will is there.

Then you have the issue of chronic waste in the NHS, paying well over the odds for basic medicines and provisions. Also the layers and layers of management, admin, 'diversity officers' and whatnot costing the service a fortune.

Basically I believe there are ways the NHS can at least attempt to get its house in order before more and more money is thrown at it (something which hasn't worked thus far).

Cue: the down votes.

The Sir Alf is becoming an eco stand, such is the prevalence of foliage growing under the roof.

This is what happens when you don't have Cole Skuse in the middle.
at 19:24 8 Apr 2017

Diagouraga is a more rounded footballer whereas Skuse is very limited. He can do a job breaking up play but doesn't really add anything else to the midfield.
