|Anyone else watching The Haunting of Hill House? |

I like a Horror and consider myself reasonably brave, but this show has got me scared of my own house.
The fact that Stephen King thinks it's disturbing says it all.
|The alleged rumours and disharmony|
at 09:57 17 Oct 2018
We have heard lots of things over the past few weeks about people being upset at the current regime.
However, I was in play 2 day at Martlesham the other day with my toddler and I had a very nice chat with Toto Nslia for about half an hour as we were the only one's in there, firstly what a lovely bloke he is, talked about the season so far, how knackered he and Chambo were after Swansea, apparently on average they run 5-6k a game as CB and they both ran 10-11k as Swansea were excellent in creating triangles and dummy runners. He said they feel collectively that they are not a million miles away and have been unlucky, he did say he felt that the strikers have been isolated a little, but with Huws and Dozzer coming back into play it should help create more of a link between the middle and up top.
Regarding training, he said it's exhausting, however, Chambers has admitted that he is in the best shape of his life, it all sounded a bit pedestrian under Mick, and he got the impression that Mick had his favourites, something Husrt is against, if you put the effort in you will play, regardless of age, also training was far less intense and as frequent as it is now.
He did say Hurst and Doig have exceptionally high standards and if you don't put the effort in then they won't be shy about letting you know, however, he said regardless of the step above from Shrewsbury, he really likes working under Hurst, also loves living in the area, Nolan has struggled to settle a little bit though.
As much as he's not going to say anything too derogatory if that were the case, I genuinely think the spirit is decent, and it's just been a huge change from management style from Mick to Hurst.
I was firmly thinking Hurst should go a week or so back, but now I'm thinking let's give him some more time from that conversation.

And I have been hugely critical of Sears over the past year, but hats off to him, he was a real outlet for us today, brilliant game for him.
I really hope he can shut people like me up for the coming season.

I maybe way of track here, but it does seem to me like Evans thought that by bringing someone in who had acsendacy from his previous role, added to that the purchasing of cheaper lower league players, his thought process was brought about by other clubs coming up from league one and hitting the ground running from the outset.
The problem with that is these teams have had continuity and confidence brought about by a season of winning and promotion. We are a million miles from that currently, added the reports of unrest and dissolution of his tactics, and we are on a fast downward trajectory.
Fwiw, I didn't think we played that badly last night, but we are toothless up front, bereft of any firepower, and with this key facet missing we are in a spiral.
Yes getting good money for Waghorn was seen as good business, but for me the whole place screams of short termism, a punt, a gamble and regardless of the 5 point plan, no clear direction.
I have a friend who works at the club and the general feeling about the whole place is apathy and negativity.
I think if Evans could walk away breaking even, he should bite someone's hand off, because we are now 4 managers into his reign, and we are further away than anytime under his stewardship.

Was reading about the BBC losing presenters recently, Eddie Mair being classed as a loss and I don't know why, but Evans was classed as a loss.
But on the comments, Benters, is this you?

If you're gay, Asian, African, disabled or anti Brexit, then the BBC is for you.
As for the rest of us? Auntie cast us aside years ago!

|Just reading about Keane's latest fallout|

Harry Arter has refused to join up whilst he is in charge.
A couple of comments I saw below made me laugh but also got me thinking.
"Done very well at Sunderland" You could argue otherwise
"Are Ipswich any better now than when he left?" Initially you laugh at that statement, but in the cold light of day, are we?
|Interesting reading other fans thought's of Mick and Keane|

Taken from Harry's Wednesday report.
“Mick McCarthy, David Moyes, Roy Keane. These are the type of manager I want. Someone who will try to motivate from the sidelines or give instructions, not just sit on his hands and look bored. They have promotions on their CVs too”, “I would absolute love Keane to come in and shake up the place.”
Not sure Moyes has promotion on his CV mind.

Emile Smith Rowe, appreciate he's only 18, but from what you hear he is the real deal, given that Maitland Niles went into the first team after his stint here, there might be a possibility he could do the same.

I couldn't help but notice Delia and Michael's net worth is £25m compared to Evans's £750m.
It's extremely costly for us as each season passes if we don't get promoted, but they really are in the mire if they don't.
