|Worst tackle ever... |
at 19:47 11 Nov 2021
Sat here watching the season highlights DVD for 2007/08 (Legwinski! Dan Harding! Colchester in the Championship!) and just saw Wilnis get sent off at Plymouth for basically leaping two footed at some poor bloke in green who near enough landed in Exeter.
Got me thinking, what is probably the worst tackle anyone has ever seen a Town player commit? Not talking here about accidental collisions like Wile/Talbot at Highbury or when Luc Nilis was unfortunately destroyed by Richard Wright, but the sort of tackle that results in a card, the opposing bench leap up in fury and you wincing in the stands.
The word "Thetis" coming to this thread in 5...4...3...

Just had a thought, seeing the thread about Dozzell Snr making his debut and then going back to school on Monday - which one of the Ipswich schools has provided the most players?
The only ones I know for sure are:
Dozzell x2, Bonne: Chantry
Richard Wright: Thurleston
Suspect a fair few from the 70s and early would have gone to Northgate or the old Landseer School.

What a fool I've been! If you'd told me this was going to happen, I'd have voted leave in a heartbeat! Rejoice!

Lee Evans there, emulating his comedic namesake.

Sir Bob took four years to get going, as did Sir Alex.
Bill Shankly took three. Sir Alf took two, as did Clough at Forest and Derby.
It'll click suddenly, and we'll give someone a hiding. It needs time.

About twenty years ago, I downloaded a cheat code for Championship Manager. This allowed you to alter all the stats in the game. There was a nuclear option of putting everything to twenty, give you several billion in the bank and increase your ground capacity a thousand fold.
So, obviously, that's what I did.
And whilst it was entertaining for a short while watching Town win every game at least 8-0 in front of the Portman Megadome crowd of 23862478 (you can see Carrow Road from the back row of the seats, they're so high up) and fighting off competing £100m bids for Richard Naylor from Juventus and Real Madrid, it soon became obvious that this was a pure fantasy, and obviously in the real world, the game builds slowly as it knows it's a slow process.
After reading the Facebook comments on the club page, I'm convinced a lot of Town fans think that that cheat code is a reality, and can't understand why it's not working.
Yikes. Talk about clueless.
|Premier League friendlies|
at 06:26 9 Aug 2021
Just noticed that over the weekend, Arsenal played Spurs, Manchester United played Everton, and Nodge went up to Newcastle. All for friendlies. Not testimonials or tournaments, just run of the mill friendlies.
Is this a new thing? Normally you don't play a team from the same division in a pre season friendly?

As soon as you hear his voice, do NOT yell "Brenner!!! Mate!!!!" and hug the radio.
People will talk.
|That whizz around England that the BBC did...|

Very well done and that, but does their atlas go no further east than the A1? The nearest place to us that was shown was London! East Anglia is a rather large area not to notice....

Do you remember Robert Kilroy-Silk leading a sort of UKIP gone wrong sort of mob? The Veritas Party? They got soundly trounced in the election.
But even that party was more of a success than this Pukki party we were promised by Look East et al.

Can we just say in the future the BBC show only the England games, and ITV have everything else?

Leapt six feet out of the chair when that went in. Forgotten what that had felt like.
Quick, tuck them all up in bed, feed them a bucket load of Lucozade and Dextresol and ferry them down to Wiltshire in the morning!

Population of Ipswich (ONS 2017 estimate) 150,334
UK deaths due to Covid (ONS data) 151,313.
So basically the whole town plus somewhere like Bramford. Grim.
