Being knighted for his services to teacakes. Rightly so, Tunnock's are one of the most underrated sweets on the market. Arguably one of the only things that can compete with the true, undisputed champion. The Toblerone.

Had a good look through the threads from last night

There is an element of finger pointing towards Knudsen, Chalobah. I don't think they are entirely fair as fundamentally West Brom had a far more talented pool of players. That said, personally I think a midfield of Downes, Skuse and Chalobah is not collectively balanced (no problems with any of them starting individually) enough to compete with a decent side on any day. It still harps me back to the Skuglas and Hyam days.

I appreciate it's a 433 that in reality looks more like 451 but Sears and Edwards don't offer enough in terms of creativity, vision or momentary quality do bridge this gap. I might get slated for this but we've not really had a balanced midfield since 14/15, which was arguably still a bit makeshift.

To me it was another shred of mounting evidence that we are probably going down. Not because it was a bad performance but because there are probably 9/10 teams in this league that beat us all day every day and then another dozen or so who we can give a game. However, when you're bottom by 5 plus points the habit of losing gets into your being and is so hard to arrest.

As for blaming Hurst, I see the logic and don't disagree. He was clearly a bit churlish in how we ran the ship but he was trying to achieve something fairly aspirational based on a strategy. To me he had his hands tied on Waghorn and Garner and had to make significant changes on fairly meagre budget for the championship. The players he brought in do look poor for the outlay but if we don't have the resources to compete in the general championship transfer market, there's an argument that we are, where we should be.

Lambert is clearly a more statesman like manager who's quickly gained popularity and rightly so. However, I would have wanted more points from those 3 games, which again corroborates that the players aren't up to it.

Guy notices my Bury running top at around mile 8 and we start chatting. Was only a Town fan from Beccles. We are massive.

Blue Monday podcast with Rob Chandler

Not sure if anyone has listened but it's a great insight into the club both past and present. Have to say he comes across as an absolutely top bloke who truly loves the club. We are lucky to have him.
