|3,000 suspected extremists known to the authorities in the UK...|
at 09:29 25 May 2017
That was the number published this week, and Abedi was among them.
My question, therefore, is this...
Why are these people on our streets and roaming freely among our communities?
If there's enough of a suspicion, lock them away. For me, conspiracy to commit a terrorist act, association with terrorist organisations and incitement of terrorism should all carry long custodial sentences. It shouldn't get to the stage where they're making bombs or carrying out atrocities. It shouldn't get that far.
I get that some will slip through the net, and it's impossible to know every single potential terrorist, but if they're known to the authorities, and there is suspicion around them, get them off our streets.

Would it be completely inconceivable for me to dream of Daryl Murphy being back here for next season?
Needless to say he'll be at a Championship club somewhere next season. Newcastle will sign a couple of big name strikers and he will be surplus to requirement.
Lets hope we can have him back!

Mick has said there will be some big changes this summer. It sounds like there will be a bit of a spring clean, which is what the club needs as a number of players have stagnated in recent seasons.
Some players are ageing and not up to their former standards, some will be wearied by the negativity around this season, and some just haven't lived up to standards at all in their time here.
These are the players I think need to be moved on:
There are others who I'd also strongly consider - players who might have done a job, but are perhaps blocking younger, more talented players from getting their chance.

With Scotland playing Canada yesterday, I half expected to check the team sheet and see a certain Mr Jaime Peters in the away team's line-up. I was bemused to see he wasn't even in the squad.
A quick Wikipedia search allowed me to see that he has been without a club for five years now. He's still only 29.
What's he up to these days?
I remember reading an article earlier this week that suggested more of these pacey wingers who don't necessarily have enough of an end product to go far in that position, could be better suited to playing the defensive midfield role that N'Golo Kante has made his own. I can't help but think Peters, with his experience of also playing right back, could have been the perfect fit for that right now.
Such a shame to see he's not playing. Seemed such a talent once upon a time.
|Tommy Smith Testimonial|
at 07:29 2 Mar 2017
By my estimation it will be 10 years later on this year of Tommy Smith making his debut for Town. Should he be getting a testimonial therefore?

I'll start by saying good luck to the guy, but there's one thing I don't get...
He's scored exactly the same amount of goals this season as a certain James Alabi in the National League. Remember him anyone? Alabi is 22, compared to Moore's 24. Both are physical, number 9 strikers.
Alabi supposedly wasn't good enough for us. What's the difference?
|Mick McCarthy's Final Day In Charge|
at 08:48 9 Jan 2017
By now Mick McCarthy will be at Playford Road preparing for the next game, reminding himself how we, Ipswich Town, FA Cup winners 1978, failed to beat a non-league side at home. How we, former European champions, were utterly outplayed by a team four leagues below us and hover just above the relegation zone in the Championship.
Within the next hour and a half, a delegation on behalf of Mr Evans will arrive at the training ground and will ask McCarthy to step into an office with them. The process will be quick, and the finer details will be ironed out between the club and his agent.
McCarthy will be thanked for the better times he had here, but told it is time this club - this ambitious club - are in need of a change of direction. Attendances have been falling as a result of his brand of performances, and wins are becoming fewer and farther between. It's time for a new era.
Or maybe this is all just fantasy...
|Best Premier League Referee?|
at 15:36 3 Jan 2017
I've always felt the best referees are the ones that you hear the least about. In other words, that's Mike Dean and Mark Clattenburg ruled out. Mike Jones or Bobby Madley for me.
What does everyone else think?
|Town fans opinions are "bullsh*t"|
at 09:11 3 Jan 2017
Isn't that nice to hear from the manager of the club. Mr McCarthy, may I remind you who pays your wages?
at 10:02 2 Dec 2016
6 wins. 6 draws. 6 losses.
That is the form of Town from the opening 18 games of the season. Nothing world beating, nothing earth shattering, nothing desperately terrible. Trouble is, I don't think anyone really knows yet what level this Town side is at.
A bit of confidence, and a run of form, we could be propelled into the play-offs. Yet, at the same time, we're not a million miles from a relegation scrap.
To use a Mick McCarthy turn of phrase, 'it's absolutely bonkers.'
Literally don't know what's next with this Ipswich Town season!!!
