Election predictions
at 09:26 6 May 2021

Biggest day of elections outside of the General Elections since 1973.

Wales: Labour will have net loss of 2 seats, Leanne Wood will lose her seat, UKIP will be wiped out but get more votes than Reform UK due to better name recognition. Government will be a Labour/Plaid coalition.

Scotland: SNP will narrowly miss out on a majority again, and need the Greens to prop them up. Gap between the Tories and Labour will get smaller but Douglas Ross will be LOTO.

Locals: Tories will make the most gains, Labour modest net gains, Lib Dems lose seats.

Hartlepool: I'm going to stick with a narrow Labour win (although that may be blind faith.) NIPs to lose their deposit.

I'm not watching the game
at 20:51 20 Apr 2021

... so I don't know which players are having a bad game, or if this criticism is relevant to our performance. But to start with Jackson and Sears and then bring them off for Hawkins and Drinan seems like a basic tactical error. Surely if you go with 2 up front, you play a target man and a quick striker together, not 2 quick strikers together* and then 2 target men.


*Yes I know Sears isn't as quick as he used to be, but the point still stands.

Does anyone know the name of this documentary?
at 13:31 5 Apr 2021

My Dad was telling me earlier that he remembers a fly on the wall documentary (similar to Sunderland Till I Die) following a number of Football League clubs, with Town among them. He seemed to think that it was Joe Royle's last season (2005-6) but also thought that Alan Mahon was in it, which would suggest it was actually in 2003-4.

Has he completely made this up or does it actually exist? If so, does anybody know the name and if it's available to watch anywhere?

Away from the football... The right-wing snowflakes are out in force again!
at 15:17 20 Mar 2021

Brendan Clarke-Smith, Conservative MP for Bassetlaw, made headlines in the Free School Meals debate in October by saying that those who wanted to feed kids were "virtue signalling on twitter." Fast forward to March and he is currently very upset because someone on the BBC made a joke about flags. I'm glad to see he's focussing on the real issues.

I consider myself to be patriotic and I'm perfectly happy with politicians using the Union flag, but it takes a special kind of melt to piss the bed when someone makes a joke about it, whilst running round claiming that other people are the snowflakes.

The 2019 Tory intake really is full of muppets...

Apparently his "Free Tommy" legal fund may have partly been spent on cocaine and prostitutes... I for one am shocked that a man with such a solid relationship with the truth could deceive his fans in such a way.

Hartlepool By-Election
at 13:12 16 Mar 2021

Labour MP Mike Hill has resigned so we've got an upcoming by-election. Its' voting history makes it quite unique - it's one of only 3 seats where the Brexit Party/Reform UK won over 10k votes last time so Labour won on quite a low percentage

2019 Result:

Labour 15.4k
Conservatives 11.8k
Brexit Party 10.6k

I think Labour could be in quite big trouble here. The vaccine bounce is clearly going to help the Tories and the fact that Brexit is done may reduce the appeal of Reform UK. However, if Richard Tice stands (as he did in 2019) and does so on an anti-restrictions ticket he might split the right wing vote. I think it'll come down to turnout, as by-elections usually do.

At the moment I'd say a Tory gain is sadly likely but a good local campaign can change that.

We all rightly gave Evans stick for sacking Lambert months too late
at 23:11 14 Mar 2021

But with Birmingham and Portsmouth getting rid of their managers today, it seems like he came to his senses just in time. You'd imagine those 2 clubs would've been chasing Paul Cook had they been looking for a new manager. That's not me saying that Evans deserves praise for sacking Lambert in February 2021 (he doesn't) but it could've been a lot, lot worse if we'd missed out on our prefered replacement as well.

As for those jobs, I think if I were a manager I'd take the Pompey gig over Birmingham as it seems far more stable. Danny Cowley should be the standout candidate for both roles so would be surprised if he doesn't end up in one of those jobs. Lee Bowyer and Daniel Stendel are in the frame for Pompey too.

Biggest bottlejobs in Sport

Has there ever been a team that has thrown away as many opportunities as the French rugby team? They’ve just conceded a try in the last 2 minutes to lose against England and now look unlikely to win the Six Nations despite being favourites coming into the game. They did similar last year, winning their first 3 only to lose to Scotland for the first time in 14 years and lose the title. Likewise, they were comfortably ahead of Wales in their 2019 World Cup quarter final at half time but managed to lose by 1 point.

Even Spurs or England don’t seem as bad as that

When is Portman Road likely to be full capacity?
at 09:02 13 Mar 2021

Or at least 2/3? I think most of us accept that the 21st June date is political spin - the small print of the announcement suggested we'll still need some element of masks/distancing after that date.

Basically just want to know when I'll be able to go to a game again. Seeing those pictures of PR on the club Twitter account has made me miss going to games even more.

Apparently Chris Wilder might be getting sacked
at 10:31 12 Mar 2021

From the outside, that seems a bit of a strange decision, despite how terrible they've been.

I guess he'll be next season's Eddie Howe - linked with every single bottom half Premier League and top half Championship job, with a few deluded League One fans actually thinking he'd take the job at their club.
