|Anyone watch 'One Man, Two Guvnors' last night?|

Not quite like a night out at the theatre but it cheered me up no end. I even have to admit that James Corden was right for the part and had the level of energy and comic timing needed. Great production from the National Theatre although the first half took a while to get going, second half was full of good all round performances. And I didn't even notice the ref, which is as it should be...
|Mike Ashley - damage limitation or genuine change of heart?|

Just heard on the news that Sports Direct's boss, as well as withdrawing his suggestion that the company are an essential supplier, is offering the delivery lorries for the supply of true essentials. It is actually a good initiative but I suspect many will see it as just a public relations stunt.

Anyone giving her toilet roll this year?

Boooooooo Gav out!
People are asking where the coronavirus came from and it cannot be a coincidence that it started not long after the widget disappeared from the chat room. The widget had done so much to improve itself but it was still spurned, just because we were in the Third Division. You can see how it wanted to take its revenge upon humanity.
So I think we should all be extra nice to the memory of the widget and commemorate all those good times it gave us by imagining a game from this season where the widget told its own story, a story that was more in keeping with the tradition of Ipswich Town as the fairy tale of unexpected success. I'll start with an opening game of the season and supporters are slightly non-plussed by the two million pound sale of Janoi Donacien to Derby County but then elated when Marcus Evans declares he will match this receipt out of his own pocket and all the funds are ploughed into a season long loan of Connor Wickham. His return to the Town squad sees him score a hat trick in the five nil away win at Burton.
Anyone got the half time score from Bristol Rovers?
|Owners since the Cobbolds - am I right in thinking it is three?|

Firstly the Fisons collective thing, cannot remember the exact composition now.
Then Sheepshanks and co.
And now marcusevans group.
Reason for this enquiry is to assert that there was some continuity of the club as an entity for the Town and the county beyond, perhaps even a little bit of that Corinthian ideal the Cobbolds espoused. Now, however it is dressed up, it seems to me that, as Paul Hurst let slip in his first interview in post, it is a business first and a club a very distant second. And therein lies the problem as it induces a conformity to financial necessity that far outweighs spirit and a shared aim between manager, team and supporters.
