Legend Brazil on Mend After Heart Problem
at 17:38:21

Used to see Brazil and the team running on Felixstowe beach for pre-season training. A great way to get fitness levels up and minimise injuries! Sometimes the old ways work best.

Also agree with everyone who says player coaching also vital. Midfielders need to be able to defend as well as attack, even this this day and age. That means get stuck in, cover, tackle (and be the beast you say are, Harper). KVY needs to be coached on how to be a FB rather than a wing-back (or buy a RB and move him to RM). Also agree PC could use a savvy no. 2 for in-game tactical tweaks. Highly unlikely to be a promotion year, but you never know. Small, CONTINUOS, incremental steps forward and continued exciting and entertaining football will keep 99% of us happy (especially when the budgies are being stuffed like turkeys)

Agree with everyone who says this is probably press speculation but if it is genuine there is probably a good reason. The law of averages says only about 50% of signing are really successful in the long run but at least we have signed players with some sort of re-sale value. Like everyone, I’m impatient for the ‘gel’ to happen (google Tuckman’s model of group development, if you’ve never heard of it) but the performances are certainly a step up from the last few years.

I’m sure he knows his stuff but don’t get too excited yet. It doesn’t sound much different from what would have been happening previously. Isometric and isotonic sessions in the gym could just be squats and the plank.

Sport science covers lots of different areas, so a team with different specialities working together can only be good. But as every gym bunny knows, a strong core or base is vital, so tech and science isn’t the answer to everything. The best pre-season training they can do is beach running.

Swindon Town 1-2 Ipswich Town - Match Report
at 18:55:40

I doesn’t really matter what happened today. Norwood will score goals in this division if we get some other attacking players in who can give him service and support. However he’s not captain material and the captaincy could be a good bargaining tool for getting the right new player In over the summer. Hopefully Norwood will stay fit, score plenty next season, improve his value and then we can sell him when we get promoted, as he’s not good enough for Championship.

0-6 Town win. Lots of shots on target, exciting and entertaining play, 3 up front, players will realise the error of their ways, donate their wages to charity, everyone will kiss and make up, Cook will be happy, Budgies will be docked all their points for being smug, I’ll win the lottery and then I’ll wake up.

Ipswich Town 0-0 AFC Wimbledon - Match Report
at 18:43:33

Even the worst Sunday team I ever played for had enthusiasm and knew where the goal was. And these players wouldn’t have got into the better Sunday teams I’ve played for. This league is ridiculously poor and many of those who usually sit in the stands could actually do a better job on the pitch than the players. And get into the top 6 of this dire league.

TractorJed you beat me to it, I was going to say 5-0 Town. So I’ll go 6-0 and 3 red cards (Holy, Downes and Cook. Dons to miss a penalty). Now it’s meaningless they’ll probably perform.

Bakay: European Super League Driven By Greed

It’s just a good job FIFA aren’t greedy. I’m glad they are so principled and don’t reward bribery or corruption. Yes, the 70s was a much better time to be a football fan as long as you were male and white. And managed to avoid the Chelsea Smiles.
PS I’m against ESL, just making a point.
