Klopp - Magic of the cup!
at 07:26 27 Jan 2020

Maybe when teams qualify in two different ways (or three different ways) they could carry forward the additional qualifications to future seasons? Could be quite a fun rule?

Nolan’s value?

You'll be eating your words when Kayden Jackson fires us back into the Premier League next season.

Nolan’s value?
at 17:53 26 Jan 2020

It's irrelevant what we paid for him. He's a 27 year-old fourth or fifth choice central midfielder at a League One club who has had one successful season at this level.

The fact that he'll be on better wages than he's worth also will reduce his value. If we got £400,000 I'd be delighted.

Blackpool in for Nolan, says Nixon
at 12:51 26 Jan 2020

If they offer anything, take it. We're picking three out of Skuse, Huws, Downes, Dozzell, Bishop, Judge and Nolan. They might be a bit injury prone, but I think we've got enough central midfielders. Looks like more half-decent youth players coming through as well.

Anyway, would be good to get something tangible back from that 2million we spent on Nolan and Nsiala.

Maybe Lambert’s rotation policy will start to pay off?
at 07:51 26 Jan 2020

Yeah, I think if we had been training and playing the same system all the way through the season (except for e.g. trying to find an equaliser in the last ten minutes) then rotating players wouldn't be that much of a problem. It was when we were trying a different system each week which was inexplicable and caused the problems.

8 career goals in 82 Championship games doesn't immediately scream 'bring me back for another bite at the cherry, Ole Gunnar, I can be your saviour.'

Can someone please tell Mick mills
at 07:44 26 Jan 2020

Someone once pointed out to me that you can tell the degree of poshness of a Radio 4 guest or presenter by the frequency of the unnecessary 'you knows'. Makes the station pretty much unlistenable after you've heard that and thought about it for a bit.

Not saying Mick Mills is posh of course, he probably just picked it up off of Woman's Hour or something.

So, let's start with Coventry. Marks out of 10 in each category.

Spacious: 6 (not sure what this category is about)
Modern feel: 3 (not many old buildings, but the new buildings are pretty awful)
Vibrant: 1 (no)
Safe: 4 (not bad)
Culture: 4 (a transport museum and half a cathedral)
Nice Views: 0 (no views to speak of)
Easy access to different types of environments: 1 (in the worst bit of England)

Total score: 19

Well basically, lots of people like to make jokes and laugh about both themselves and other people, but they do know it's just a joke and in the spirit of fun and all that. But when people move to London, particularly from provincial towns like, I don't know, Brackley, Nuneaton or Kings Lynn, their capacity to do so slowly ebbs away.They start to take themselves awful seriously. They become what's often known as big time charlies, or in the interest of brevity, tw*ts.

The risk with London though, is that it turns you into a tw*t. Seen it happen more times than I care to remember, and it doesn't get any less sadder each time.

I'd say Edinburgh is the only city in the UK with a proper wow factor because of Arthur's Seat, Salisbury Crags and the Pentland Hills and the architecture. It p*sses all over any other city in the UK in that sense. Although Glasgow may be more dynamic in lots of ways as Darth Koont says. Inverness as well, although it's really small also has a really great vibe, lots of young outdoorsy people and a good social scene. What I'm saying, basically, is Scotland. But not Aberdeen.

I think if you consistently see differences in the way different groups of people are treated in public life whether it be in sports, the arts, politics etc., then it's fair enough to call it out.

I think in the context of UK elections (because of the vagaries of first past the post) the difference between a party getting e.g. 34% and 37% of the vote can be enormous in terms of seats, and so it can often seem like the polls have 'got it wrong again,' when actually the results were within the confidence intervals of the polls.

There should be more effort made to communicate confidence intervals around polling, though, I think that's one of the reasons for the cynicism.

Indomitably so.

There is one slight flaw in your argument, though. The problem with polls and polling data is that people don't always say what they really mean, for whatever reason, as we both know.

Your 'talk to the people' theory of understanding the mood of a nation has a lot going for it, except that at it's heart it's actually just another way of conducting a poll. As such it's subject to all the same weaknesses as professionally conducted polls. What was your sample size again?
