Motty on Desert Island Discs

Anyone catch the whole show? Only listened to the last twenty minutes and no mention of Town, interesting on Argentina '78 and Hillsborough though.

Do we really need a manager?
at 06:07 6 Jan 2018

I mean, most of them are complete feckwits, why don't Town break the mould again and try something new. A self organising team responsive to events on the field as they happen.

Bluey can do the post match interviews.

Had a chat with a Liverpool supporter I go kayaking with in the Co-op today
at 20:50 6 Dec 2017

What I mean is we belong to the same kayak club and chanced upon each other in the Co-op, not that we were paddling down the aisles.

Anyway, we were talking about the old days and he said the only ground he got punched as a travelling supporter was Portman Road!

However, he also said that the old North Stand (which he called our Kop) was, when you took into account the catchment area, easily the loudest home support in all the grounds he went to. We were a full on bunch of supporters back then, weren't we?

heads up.

A lot of the footage brought back memories of what I saw on TV at the time but I had never seen clips of the VVAW flinging their purple hearts and silver stars over the clumsy barricade on Capitol Hill before - was that new to anyone else?

I'll be thinking of them along with my recently passed Arctic Convoys uncle and all the people I knew who were bombed by the Luftwaffe when we are silent at eleven tomorrow.

And of the Hillsborough victims today after catching up with Phil Scraton's 'Desert Island Discs', The Sun still has quite a debt to repay there.

The boo boys can be manoeuvred down to the front of the stand by the rest of us ready for the karate kid when they get uppity, Phil can be enervated by obscure references to trawlers and seagulls, we'll do well in the National League...

Even Ol' Adenoids has joined the 'Mick Out' camp!

Apparently they grew feathers and turned into birds and that's why the meteorite hit, I might not have been fully listening. Could have been something about playing T. Rex on the right when he should clearly have been the big man in the middle of defence, not sure but I'm taking it as code that Mick is about to fly the coop...

At least he puts Ipswich/Nodge before Wolves/West Brom
at 15:57 23 Oct 2017

But that might just be alphabetical ordering:

“I know what it feels like to play at Easter Road. Getting on the bus, driving down Princes Street, going down Easter Road and getting abuse from the Hibs fans,” said captain Christophe Berra, who will return to the derby fold after an eight-year hiatus. “It’s something a player should thrive on. It’s the biggest game of the season for us.

“I’ve played in derbies down south, Ipswich versus Norwich, Wolves versus West Brom, and I never had the same feeling I did when I was playing Hibs. I was born and bred here, I know what it means to the fans. Tuesday night, under the lights, live on telly – it doesn’t get any bigger for us.

“You need to be fired up, but you have to be controlled in that aggression as well. You have to be clever, you have to be patient. It’s three points but it’s more than that to the fans – and the players,” added the defender, who lost only three of his past 11 capital derbies. “You don’t want to be walking about the city two or three days afterwards taking stick because you’ve been beaten.”

So are crime rates up or down?
at 15:10 19 Oct 2017

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-41677046

13% up in the last year to June, but improvements to recording of crime may have something to do with it. With a downward trend in murder in figures to 2014 this new increase is particularly disturbing. No doubt blue_oyster will explain it all for us.
