Blackpool and Jon Nolan
at 18:31 26 Jan 2020

According to the same source that gave me the early info on Town and Hughill, Lambert as boss and Bree coming on loan from Villa, Blackpool are signing a midfielder from Prem League on loan so he cannot see anything in the Nolan stuff. Just passing it on so don't come back and shoot me if it is wrong and before anyone has a go, I am definitely not trying to be a Billy Big Bollox either!

Shocking defending for every goal
at 20:38 29 Dec 2019

Woolf too easily beaten for first. No real danger for second just rubbish goalkeeping. No challenge for third - Dozzer jogging along. Nobody taking any responsibility for a cross for number four and goal five we had totally lost all shape (kind of understandable given the need to get an equaliser and time running out I guess).

Why is he not getting a sniff? Punishment for Accrington? He certainly would look to move us up the pitch at speed unlike Judge, Nolan, Skuse et al.

40 yards unchallenged

Ffs, Curtis picked that ball up in his own half and carried it unchallenged to the edge of our box whilst Edwards jogged behind him and various others backed off. Dear oh dear.

Far too little forward drive from midfield
at 19:02 21 Dec 2019

This has long been our problem. Skuse is an out and out holding midfielder. Nolan claims he is box to box but I see far too little of that from him. His first instinct seems to get the ball, pirrouette, lay it off (normally square or back) and then make himself available again. All very neat and tidy but lung busting runs to get into the box are few and far between. Downes is a fine prospect with all the ingredients but right now he seems reluctant to drive forward. Edwards is pony, Judge I fear his legs have gone. He no longer beats a man and prefers to check back inside. Huws could and should be a force but his performances have been patchy at best and the necessary run of games are not happening. Dozzer can look sublime or anonymous and is not driving us forward when he plays. You know what, I'd like to see young Dobra closer to the starting 11. He has the drive, the turn of pace, the direct running that scares defenders. I know he is a kid but that hunger could be nurtured. Of course, there is Teddy Bishop but we cannot really go there with any confidence. If only we could!

It is certainly worth consideration. Toto simply looks so vulnerable and just not good enough. Thoughts?

Sears and Bish in warm up. Two players who could genuinely make a difference if they could stay fit. Bishop on form moves the team forward and can play on half turn. I know, staying fit, staying fit, staying fit.......................

Strange stats
at 18:09 7 Dec 2019

Of the rop 14 teams in L1, the two teams with the best away records also have pretty much the worst home records - Rotherham and Town. Just coincidence?

If you believe a single word Boris says

You deserve everything you get. As soon as I hear anyone moaning over the next five years I will simply ask them who they voted for. If they say "Tory" then I will dismiss them instantly, tell them in no uncertain terms where to go. If you can't see all he is doing is trotting out obfuscation peppered with the tedious "Get Brexit Done" claptrap whilst, as Andrew Marr has just said "chuntering" then you don't want to see him for what he is. A fraud.

From his performances here a coiple of seasons back, I would have said he was too good for a club of Lincoln's ilk. Would have seen him at Championship level myself.

We used to go toe to toe with the best. Hard to believe
at 17:08 27 Oct 2019

Watching Liverpool now in full flow against Spurs brings memories of the 70s and early 80s flooding back. I know we didn't beat Liverpool at Anfield until Adam Tanner in 94/95 relegation year but I attended some great games there and a few good draws when they were European Champions. A few wins at PR in that time, Mariner and D'Avray headers spring to mind. All distant memories I know but never to be forgotten. Amazi g times to be a young boy and Town fan (from Liverpool!!)

The signing of Norwood
at 14:44 2 Aug 2019

That folks, was it I'm afraid. I'm sure he is on a half decent whack and some signing on fee was involved but it was designed and timed to boost the optimism, enhance season ticket sales and keep us all on side. The windfall of several sell-on clauses was surely never in the original budget as the cannot be relied on yet it seems clear they are getting nowhere near Mr Lambert for the purpose of purchasing a player or two. The injuries are annoying but like so many times since Evans turned off the tap post Jewell, our squad is one or two short of looking decent and Mr Evans won't deliver. Finally, Lambert's comments on the sale of and fee for Ellis Harrison are very confusing.

Move on now Town for God's sake!
at 19:53 30 Jul 2019

From the little I had seen of Elliot, he looked big and strong and capable of causing some problems at L1 level if we needed an alternative to support or supplement Norwood. I certainly wasn't averse to him signing. However, if he has missed most of pre season and is not yet back in full training, it will likely be late September before he is ready to go and ip to speed. What's the point waiting that long? Might as well take the risk on a short term pay as you play deal for Will Keane if he is still available if you ask me. If a transfer fee is needed for Nuttall then that probably rules us out doesn't it? And whilst I am ranting, what the hell are we doing with Guthrie and Wilson? Either sign one or move on from those two as well!

Judge and pre season

So what if he misses a couple of weeks. The season has been finished for 4 weeks and the poor geezer Judge is still playing competitive football whilst the others have been out on the beach. A bit of extra rest won't do him any harm considering! May even help him somewhat.

Thank God for the free pie and drink cos that was awful.
at 18:31 19 Apr 2019

PNE is a proper football club. The free pie and drink was great even though the lad and I had wolfed a burger from the van outside the turnstile. Nothing to add to Lambert's comments other than a big concern about our youngsters next year. Lots of talk about some of them but I am not so sure. He needs to get his recruitment spot on and at least 3 or 4 successes are desperately required. Shadow boxing all game just does not cut it.
