|23 different sides selected now|
at 22:25 1 Jan 2020
Norris and Huws had never started together before today. Take out the keeper and it's still 23 different outfield sides selected.

Wasn't brilliant but we were the better side until Akinfenwa came on and if Judge could finish would have won. Can't believe Wycombe are top. It is our failure to win home games that is the downfall.
|Contract negotiations transcript|
at 13:56 1 Jan 2020
PL: Right, bottom line, Marcus. I want a six-month contract extension at Portman Road to manage the team. I've played at all the top clubs, did I ever tell you about Germany?
ME: No, Paul, I’m not going to give you a six-month contract extension.
PL: [Looking disgusted, and standing up] Aye, you’re just like all the rest, aren’t you? You sit there on your fat, spotty behind. Did you know I played with all the world stars. Paul McStay, Regi Blinker, Bobby Petta.
ME: Paul, Paul, Paul. I’m not going to give you a six-month contract extension, ‘cause I have prepared a five year one.
PL: [Grinning like a schoolboy, his voice a little choked] That’s brilliant.
ME: A million pounds a year.
PL: That’s five million pounds. [Raising a fist in the air] Jurassic Park. I’m sorry for saying you were fat, before. I just mean you’re big boned. Just imagine what this place could be like? It's just a blip at the moment. I'm so proud of how we want the ball etc etc

|The big mistake was sticking with virtually the same squad as last season.|
at 17:02 29 Dec 2019
Last season we didn't just finish bottom, we were miles below the standard of Championship football. So although the standard of League One is lower, is not that low that we would suddenly walk this league. If Lambert got one thing right it is that the early results moved expectations to high. It now seems those string of 1-0 away wins were a bit streaky putting us in a false position.
There should have been a big clearout in the summer, and the mistake of not doing this is now becoming apparent. A mistake equally as big as Hurst totally underestimating the strength of the Championship with his signings. Lambert will pay the price with losss of his job, if not now, then fairly soon.

|Is Clive Lewis totally deluded?|
at 20:09 19 Dec 2019
"When trying to persuade them of our radicalism and sincerity, we often had the legacy of the 2000's thrown back in our faces.
Persuading voters that we understand the sources of their long-held resentment and frustration, of their disappointment in how Labour has conducted itself since the 1990s, will be the first step towards winning back their trust."
He thinks Labour are losing elections because people remember how they were when they were winning elections? Head totally in the sand.

|Corbyn is toast |
at 22:10 12 Dec 2019
But to be fair, he got 40% last time when both major parties promised Brexit.
Therefore this election result is about Brexit, not Corbyn.
|seems a bit unfair|

johnson and corbyn are pitched into a bear pit fight, and swinson gets some tummy tickling questions to enable a libdem party political broadcast.
why hasn't she been asked how on earth if she won an election with 40% that would give her a mandate to cancel a 52% referendum?
|Keane and Huws re: Lambert "back-to-back" games.|
at 18:57 20 Oct 2019
Is he referring to the fact they played 12 days ago in a kickabout with Gillingham so they couldn't play today? Surely back-to-back games only has any meaning if they played 3 or 4 days ago - not twelve? What if we'd played last Saturday and they were rested - would they now be magically fitter? Bizarre comments unless he means they're playing against Rotherham.

If the "Benn Law" didn't exist and the EU had a straight choice between Johnson's proposals and a no deal - which would be the better option for them?
|Question about revealing team selection|
at 19:36 17 Sep 2019
I know that a manager has to hand-in his team selection by a certain time, but why reveal the formation? Looking at the team without reading the news article one would assume it would be 4-4-2 (or variations of) so why has it been revealed to the press that it is 3-5-2?
