|Took myself off my self imposed iFollow exile last night|
at 08:23 3 Mar 2021
And enjoyed the game, first 20 they were all over us but we started to get some composure, you could see there were nerves with Cook in the stand, but solid win to build on.
Just one slight groan, Norwood, he hustles and bustles up top, but as soon as he stepped up to take the Penalty I thought the keeper would save it, not a great penalty and then he missed a couple of big chances, maybe he's rusty but he just doesn't seem clinical enough for me, not just last night, but over the period of his time here he needs lots of chances to finally bury one. I thought maybe because I have been blessed over the years with such exquisite finishers (I'm thinking Marcus) that I am being unduly harsh, but I would like to see him with more cutting edge, maybe that will come in time once he's fully fit.
Oh and shout out to Toto, another rock solid display, if he plays like that, no nonsense then he will be a big asset to us. Think I remember posting a thread a t the beginning of the season along the lines of "There's a player in there" ...

Is if Evans has been in talks with Cook since the turn of the year and potentially before, then having watched him on that pod with the Cowleys, he certainly would have been keeping a very close eye on all our games, should give him some decent insight into the squad and makes it far easier for him to identify where he thinks we should be playing.
|One thing that gets overlooked is our Debt|

New ownership is essential, especially as Evans has given up the ghost, but one of the many benefits is the fact that the £100m debt is going to be wiped out, if nothing else that is a huge positive for our long term prospects.

Wonder if they are now out of exile now Lambert has gone, or given the fact that Gill is part of the Lambert regime they will stay banished.
Would have thought we need all hands on the deck and a clean slate going forward.
|Well, how do we look back at the Evans era?|

Thankful that we were kept afloat, but that's about it. No doubt his heart was in the right place initially, but clearly the past few years have been awful and he has kept us on life support.
13 years of frustration, anger and disappointment, with maybe the Arsenal cup win the highlight.
Slim pickings all round.
Wish him all the best, but feel now is the right time for him to move on and probably best for our sanity.

But yesterday I was walking through Woodbridge thoroughfare behind John McGreal and he had is ear to his phone in deep conversation with someone, and he mentioned a role of Sporting Director and it would be great if it was local, I tried to get closer but it started to look a little awkward when he kept turning around and looking at me.
|This is brilliant news if true|

both Lambert and Evans gone, hopefully we can put this sorry saga behind us now and start to beleive again.
|So, essentially we're back to square one|

Lambert still in charge for the foreseeable, claims he had those 3 games appear to be wide of the mark, Evans happens to be comfortable with the situation, even though all around him it's burning, basically, at worst, he and Lambert have different ideas on how the club should be run.
All quite depressing really, ST renewal time will be interesting.

Go and jump in the shower, stick your Gazelle's on and head to Playford Road, you're back in the big time.
|Jackson and Nolan have had a bit of a nice touch really|

A nice, gentle lunchtime run out at Playford Road, some clear guidance and instruction from Kieron, to then finish up and head home for a spot of gardening, playing with the little ones.
Whilst the other poor sods are stuck in a hotel room in Hull, awaiting more absolute inane drivel to come from the manager followed by another "on another day" comment and the next poor unsuspecting soul getting jettisoned because of a rough tackle Paul didn't like.
