I think we need the Cowleys
at 22:06 27 Jan 2021

Either Cook or Cowley would be a real coup and are standout candidates, I’d go DC personally for the reasons you’ve suggested - we need someone to get us back on our feet

Paul Cook has turned down Sheff Wednesday
at 20:27 27 Jan 2021

And for all we moan about Evans, he’s a good chairman to work for as a manager and they all generally like working with him - you get a decent salary, little interference and more than a fair crack at it.

What's happened to Kier Starmer lately?
at 15:52 27 Jan 2021

I haven't caught up with todays PMQs yet, but thought he had one of his best weeks in some time last week.

I do think there is an element of focus group leadership, attacking the Tories at the moment isn't going down well in places where he needs to win votes. It is seen as politicising the issue as the Govt is 'trying it's best' in 'unprecedented circumstances'

Think it is a case of playing the long game, and letting the Tories have enough rope to hang themselves with in time - I do think his positions show how hard the big decisions are currently.

There is the fact that if rollout of vaccine continues ahead of our neighbours and is a big success that there will be few angles of attack left; but then Churchill won the war and was voted out shortly afterwards.

Plus, I know he's not popular on here, but Boris is a very skillful master politician, and must be a tough opponent as he has the great gift of being well liked.

At what point do schoolkids just end up having to do an extra year...?
at 14:38 27 Jan 2021

I don't disagree, from a selfish point of view I'll have mine start in September, save myself a few hundred quid a month for his 'free' nursery, and he needs to start. I have another younger kid as well who is costing me double that at nursery as is under 3 and would also require another year of nursery care.....

I wonder if there is some form of streaming that needs to take place, to move up the kids ready to do so, and repeat year for ones who aren't - again incredibly difficult.

But this can't just be left, we can't just carry on as normal come next September and expect it all to be fine - it's a ticking time bomb. I'm fortunate mine are at an age where this doesn't affect them as they should start school normally this year and a couple of years after that

Big problems need big solutions - but you can't just allow children to lose a year of education which will be happening.

It's fine to say what about x, y or z - but none of that solves the problems that exist. There has to be something radical done or the achievement gap between rich and poor kids will grow even larger

Course it is, my eldest is due to start this year and is ready for it already - I don't want him to wait another year.

But sometimes, it takes big solutions that no one would think possible to make things happen. As an example, the original furlough scheme would have been seen as impossible 2 weeks before it happened, but now is just seen as normal.

I obviously don't have all the, or any of in reality, the answers - but something big needs to happen with schools.

You see it a lot in US hopsitals when watching those sort of programmes - but not particularly surpising that some hospitals offer better specialist treatments in certain areas so shouldn't come as a surprise, and glad worked out well for you and Mrs G.

This is just inane though, covid is covid and everyone will be doing the same treatments, facility allowing

My youngest is due to start in September, if he was a few weeks older he'd have started in September just gone - our friends who have sent kids then have barely had them in school - they are struggling to teach them the basics of 'phonics' and the like. Plus when they did go in, some parents hadn't done anythign with kids so they had to go back to start anyway.

I don't know what happens for those due to start this year, as they need to start, so obviously lots of logistic problems.....

Yep, feel so sorry for those students who started last year, I imagine the intake is lower than normal this year which alongside Brexit and lost funding, lost Erasmus will be killing some universities.

As rubbish a time as I am having, and am seriously demotivated for everything now, at least I'm in a position in career and family life that I'm not 'missing out' on much, some are hugely and it will affect them forever

Sure there are other considerations, but just dropping everyone down a year seems a sensible option so that they don't miss out and get a proper full education

That's a different conversation though - they are saying it's fake, Dr is saying he will die which they don't believe to be the case.

My wife's Grandad recovered from Covid but ended up on end of life care in the hospital, once they no longer have it then surely option to effectively die at home - but can't let infected people out to just die of covid

That doesn't seem to be how it works when we've sacked Magilton, Keane and Hurst a new man has been in place straight away....only time it hasn't were when Jewell resigned and Mick's strange exit

If you have 3 games to save it, and you lose the first 2 at home - surely that should be it? is 3 points enough from those 3 games? Does Jackson red card extend it?

Only one person knows the answer to that - but that person does seem to be incredibly slow at reacting - but also part of that slowness is because he likes to get next man in place which may take time.

But, I will be fuming if Lambert is in charge this time next week

So Edward's hasn't even discussed a new deal
at 12:50 27 Jan 2021

It has been, and the deals Hurst's Hotshots signed where effectively prove it deals that got slashed in half in relegation - so he's not even earned good money whilst being at a bigger club

Ipswich fans vote McGuinness joint man of match last night
at 12:48 27 Jan 2021

It's not about not rating him, he has a ton of potential - but he makes big errors too often.

The sort of errors you expect in first outings at senior football, when you play against people like Wyke who have been around the block

At the moment - Ipswich Town are not gaining out of his presence - he isn't better than Woolfie, Wilson or Chambers at CB currently - no doubt he'll likely be better than all 3 in time - and he's denying Woolfie progress, and as a pairing they need an experienced head alongside either of them
