Thought Harness looked much more assured today than he has recently. I know he wasn't on the pitch for long, but he was the pick of the subs for me.

including 3 or 4 times in the same sentence, shortly after the boys came on.

I know we're playing a poor side, but Luongo looks class in the middle of the pitch.

Fanzone, parking & eateries
at 12:29 8 Feb 2023

I'm bringing my son (11) to his first ITFC game on Saturday (together with his grandparents). I think I'm looking forward to it more than he is!

I posted a request for help with accommodation a couple of weeks ago and many thanks again to all who responded - it was greatly appreciated. Because I am useless in getting my arse in gear, our preferred choices (in town) were either full or priced out of my range, so we're booked into one of the Premier Inns on the A14, about 5 miles from the ground.

Anyhow, someone helpfully suggested the fanzone before the game, which I like the idea of (our seats are in Magnus as well). What sort of time would be good to get there? Also, linked to this - parking (and no Gatwick please!) Thinking of the Portman Road car park if (and it's a big if) we can get into town early enough. What time does that car park generally fill up when there's a capacity crowd? Any suggestions for a Plan B, particularly if that's full? Both of my parents have some mobility issues, so ideally no more than a 10/15 minutes or so walk to/from the ground. I was considering the park-and-ride at Tesco (we'll be coming in from the A14/A12 roundabout), but there were a couple of negative comments about reliability in my earlier thread and I don't want to risk being stuck without transport after the game.

Talking of which, I'm tasked with feeding a fussy 11 year old and a couple of even fussier septuagenarians in the evening. I was thinking of driving to the Waterfront (I've never been). Are there plenty of pizza/pasta places there? Is it advisable to book? Again, is there plenty of parking there? Any alternative suggestions?

Basically any suggestions to help make this a memorable experience for the boy (aside from 3 points, of course) will be gratefully received.

SW game - hotel accommodation sought
at 12:30 20 Jan 2023

After a couple of false starts, I've finally been able to book tickets to take my son and (elderly) parents to the Sheffield Wednesday game on 11 February. My boy is 11 - it'll be his first trip to Mecca.

We'll be travelling a long way, so plan to stay overnight in Ipswich after the game, then travel back the following day. So, looking for a hotel, ideally where we can park and then walk to the game, and also eat in the evening at a pizza/burger place or such like within walking distance of the hotel. Thinking of the Premier Inn at the Waterfront - is this a good choice? Has anyone stayed there recently? I've never stayed overnight in Ipswich (always travelled to the match and back on the same day before) so any recommendations would be gratefully received. Needs to be fairly close to both the ground and eateries because both parents are no longer able to walk long distances.

New Year's Honours (or absence of!)
at 10:16 31 Dec 2022

Ian Botham (now Lord Botham), a middle-class sportsman from the South (West), walked from Lands End to John O'Groats to raise a shed load of publicity and money for Leukemia research, and was given a knighthood. Richly deserved for outstanding services to charity.

Kevin Sinfield, a working-class sportsman from the North, ran 7 ultra marathons in 7 days to raise a shed load of publicity and money for MND research. He received diddly squat in the New Year's Honours.

It's a disgrace. I'm not on Twitter, but perhaps someone might like to start a #KnighthoodforKev campaign?

In other news and the world of politics, MPs Chris Bryant, Julian Lewis and Alok Sharma are knighted. For, basically, doing the jobs they are paid to do.

Hybrid hatchback car
at 13:25 9 Jul 2022

Does anyone have any recommendations for a hybrid hatchback? My wife's car has died, uneconomical to repair and we've decided to bite the bullet and look for a replacement. Spent the entire morning searching online, which has left us more confused than ever! Ideally a hybrid (not plugin), no more than 3 years old or thereabouts and budget max £10k. Any suggestions what to consider (and what to ignore)? Many thanks...

...required, now that the pock faced pygmy has finally left the in-breds.

I am (ahem) leaning towards Cook&Balls, or similar, as a nod to the gobbledygook that our esteemed leader is prone to come up with in his post-match analyses. But, open to suggestions.

A cyber pint for the best one.
