Kevin Beattie’s Debut Game Highlights

Pickett fences around the parameters of football pitches is clearly what the modern game lacks.

Pointless hypothetical question about the early 80s Ipswich team.
at 11:04 19 May 2022

I think as I was saying yesterday the fact we played 433 in the FA cup final showed that we did experiment. I mean we basically played the formation that day that Man City and Liverpool play today!

And then of course we played a diamond midfield in the 80s side.

At a time when most sides were rigid 442.

I think we'd do well still. But its hard to judge. Fitness levels of all the players would probably have to improve. Top 10 maybe. Football has come along way. Its so technical now and there are some world class players at the top clubs today.

Anyone care to admit voting Conservative in the 2019 GE?

So who are you voting for next time?

I think the Liberals should re-introduce their policy of another Brexit ref. Though Im not sure if we'd get allowed back in very quickly anyway.

"I’m more interested in the bold centrists that were happy to lie about Corbyn."

That presumably is a question for Keir Starmer then as he's banned him from the Labour Party?

I voted Liberal for what its worth - and remain in Brexit.

But people are entitled to vote for who they want without a load of abuse coming their way.

When was the last time we had a "great" government. whoever was in power?

If time stands still, how do you measure the passing of a minute?

It only dawned on me today for the first time (reading the book), that we set up 433 that day.

When I think back on the videos Ive watched since its clear that Geddis and Woods were playing wide of Mariner.

How very modern.

I wonder why we didnt try it more, given how successful it was that day.

Currently reading that.

One of my favourite parts so far is when he describes coming out of the Wembley tunnel and the Ipswich players at that stage being unaware just how many Town fans were there. And they were turning round to look as they emerged and getting goose bumps.

And then he says (unintentionally funny)....I just wish time could have stood still, even if for just one minute.

I think I know what he meant :-)

I had a bad outbreak last year, but at the time had no other symptoms, but Im thinking maybe that was covid as well now. Ive never had anything like this before. The stuff I had from last year took along time to clear. And now its all back with vengeance.

Ive even had these black sesame seed shaped things coming out of me! Which fall off but leave a swelling behind.

Thanks. That sounds highly likely then doesn't it.

I guess, whilst its just unpleasant I'll just have to ride it out.

Im taking some anti histamine to see if that helps.

Ive got big hives come up. Some patches of dry skin. Some what almost look like insect bites that then puff up and bruise up in colour. Not pleasant.

Anyone else had that?

Every other normal covid symptom seems to have almost gone in 4 days. Full testament to the vaccines I think providing a good immune response. But as someone who has hay fever etc, I wonder if my immune response is over doing it and causing the skin problems.

Ok. So no opinion. Just restating what I read.

Three days after Vardys agent was asked by the police to hand over her phone to them, she lost it in the sea.

Or does that put Phil into meltdown?

Just asking before I express some.

I’m now more interested in the question than what I have to say. Which is only minor and as worthless as the whole event.

Im going to stop. Ive made my points.

We are into areas of what I just think are about decency and respect. Especially when a choir of mixed race and disabilities are singing a song thats about loss.

Liverpool are my second team. Ive been to Anfield this year watch them. I know alot about Liverpool fc, their fans and the political times of the 1980s.

None of that leads me to think booing the national anthem is appropriate. Or Prince William. In these me too times why should he be ok to abuse when others aren't?

Any in particular the hymn. I felt very upset for those people.

And if we don't heal grievances how do we ever move on? A huge number in that crowd now weren't even affected by the 1980s.

And the fact that we do boo the German national anthem then, by your logic, makes it right and appropriate?
