I want McCarthy gone ASAP

I also have to agree. When i heard it i thought surely that's not our "Blue Army' chanting, and its 'their mob' on a wind up. Explains!

I was going to add 'wireless' but already mentioned by a few. Is it just this side of 'the pond' that its not used..'fortnight'? I've said it a couple of times and then had to explain!

Don't see there being an end to this, just kids(and adults) that will try to beat the last total...almost like an on line game. Sad times indeed!

My sister said she'd go to this, pick up a signed book and mail it off to me. If its sold out does it mean there's no chance of her picking a signed copy up that night?

I moved there during the 'red hot' summer of 76 with my future x-wife. Then had to 'get home' somehow to see Mariner make his home debut v WBA and back down to Devon for work a day later! Left the area a year later but look back fondly on my time there.

Who would be the worst possible appointment?
at 00:53 9 Feb 2018

That's one name that would certainly put paid to me wanting to step foot in Portman Rd. Really pee'd me off when he walked out from coaching a team here State side leaving them near the bottom, saying he needed a 'break' then within days back coaching, i think Blackburn!

Looks like the breeze (upper winds) are going to be a factor as its already delayed the launch according to the local news channel!

State pension dilemma
at 16:50 6 Feb 2018

The letter i received last week stated that if i catch up on my 5 missing years by paying 'voluntary NI contributions' i could increase my State Pension by 4.56 a week for every year i catch up! It didn't give me the choice of paying Class 2 contributions and also listed a department number to call in the UK to find out how much i need to pay each year.

State pension dilemma
at 12:10 6 Feb 2018

Its actually more through choice. I moved here 15 years ago as a "dual citizen' and never really had any sort of business plan. Every now and then i pick up a"maintenance' job (one so far this year!) in one of the mass of British owned vacation villas but don't advertise myself. Smallish mortgage, a little savings and in your words, 'kind of happy just ticking along.'
Probably why i haven't been back to see the Town since i moved here, just the high costs of flights etc.
Go for it !

Just watched a report on the local news channel and its expected 100,000 will head over to the space coast, and the reporter has talked to folks camping overnight! It also mentioned that 2 of the boosters will return to land and the other out in the ocean on a barge. I thought about driving over but with the chance of the launch being delayed i'm going to watch from my roof 50 plus miles away and then wished i'd driven across!

State pension dilemma
at 11:30 6 Feb 2018

I've got the same dilemma this side of the 'pond' and just recently received a letter from Pension Centre in Wolverhampton giving me my forecast.
I'll reach that in 2020 and records show i have 30 full years that they 'estimate' will give me 136.75 a week. The letter adds if i contribute another 4 years (?) it would increase to 154.99!
I'm more or less semi-retired now with limited funds so considering giving the catch-up a miss. I should also receive a smaller U.S. pension in 2020.
Probably means i'll have to sell my home and live off the assets and hope it doesn't dry up!

50 Years ago tomorrow
at 11:53 2 Feb 2018

This was my first trip to Carrot Rd, 13 year old and also up in the Barclay stand with loads of other Town fans and just the thin blue line trying to keep the peace! For some reason i was trying to remember if this was a night game or probably just dusky/dark early!
My last time there was in the early eighties, i think 80-81 season.

McCarthy's comments about mind boggling wages

I'm guessing it will not be to far in the future before the 'American way' salary caps are introduced. Also end of season MLS rules release each players season earnings for anyone to view.

Bit of a tough one to answer, but what is the best ever goal you've seen?
at 22:28 29 Jan 2018

Unable to open this but watched Worthingtons 'cheeky' goal many times over the years..brilliant but wasn't there live. Another 'cheeky' goal a few years earlier was the Ernie Hunt free kick for Coventry which was later banned.

Exactly as i remember it as i was sitting up close to the t v camera. I think the fact that Woods goal won the 4 game epic battle with Leeds and put Town in the Semi-Final made it appear slightly more memorable but always one of my favourite Town goals.

I'm thinking that sounds like me, watering hole before games in the late 80s through 90s, same age bracket, in my 60s, disappeared a few years back, a little 'rough' but cannot come up with the sean name... i'll work on it!

Surprised myself that i'm actually looking forward to both of the games.
First one because the 'Jags' are from Florida so local as such and i'm really not keen on the name ' New England Patriots'! Second game because my partner is a real 'die hard' born and bred Viking and if they don't make it to the final in their own stadium the next couple of weeks will be miserable in this household, and I've also a few dollars bet on both teams with my elderly American father!
