Find it hard to listen to this and it’s the first time I have in ages- my stepdad playing - RIP - he’d been around most of my life but sadly passed away 6 months after my mum and a year after my dad, horrendous period of my life. Great piece of music.
Cook had even been pretty effusive about Dozzell when doing Sky commentary. I’d love to see his half time bit again ‘we’ for Ipswich etc. I do wonder if he’s a bit gutted, thought he’d come in and there’d be an immediate upturn. The situation when he arrived, you’d more often than not expect to get into the play offs.
This is surely the point, how do you make players who are part of the furniture, feel too comfortable, hungry. If you go into any company and do similar, surely what you’re looking for is for a reponse, fighting to stay etc. If that happens then great, if it doesn’t then the right thing is for them to leave.
I imagine the extra stresses and strains of the online learning, coupled with the fact that kids of key workers were under even more pressure. I imagine also that the lack of symptoms in pupils put the job as one of the higher risks too. Children have all been affected by this pandemic and teachers have been an important part of dealing with this. Dreadful from Peston and huge respect to all teachers.
Didn’t Mick and the players liken him to a young Murphy? Perhaps he’s good in training, Lambert giving him a free hit as his main gripe has been lack of service to the striker. He’s surely got to go out on loan and play regularly, thought he started the season well.
Huws - more disappointed to see him this season, a shadow the player he could have been for us. Feels like 3 seasons waited for him to come back, he finally gets fit and he can’t play football any more. Sad for him more than anything else though, still in his prime.
I’d have taken play mate home and told the parents he wasn’t really friend material for your kid. That is a hard one to take but says so much more about the other kids parents (are they Norwich fans?) than anything else, park it and forget about it.
