    Getting the crowds back in

    Another fair question. Plenty of ST holders don’t live inside the county. Who monitors that, aside from the obvious issues regarding fairness? Or is it common sense again? Nobody has a clue what they’re doing.

    Getting the crowds back in

    Public health aside - and it’s a horrific idea if this is indeed true - good luck getting clubs to juggle this in terms of logistics. “How many season ticket holders can we let in?” “4,000 this week, but that might change at barely a day’s notice at absolutely any moment.” “How do we choose...

    Getting the crowds back in

    Don’t go to the match DO go to the match, but only if it’s outside OR inside and you can’t watch it from home, and if you CAN watch it from home then watch it outside but not with your family, watch it INSIDE with your family, or go to the match, but don’t go to the match unless you need to...

    Oxford vaccine 70-90% effective

    A 70% effectiveness rate rising to 90% after a second dose is stunning. You might want to look at the average effectiveness of the standard flu vaccine to get an idea of just how impressive this is, especially because until not even 12 months ago we didn’t even know what the hell this thing was...

    Top tip: nine times out of ten they haven’t really called the police.

    Got the points. That was all that mattered. I’ll give Matty a rub down and have him back for the Swindon game, don't you worry.

    General "Injury prone", "sicknote", "risky signing"

    Carruthers is a free agent after Cambridge let him go in the summer. Believe he was on trial with Eastleigh a while back and got injured after about 15 minutes. Textbook.

    National News Boris Johnson - PM

    Johnson’s been informed by the independent advisor for ministerial code that following investigation, Priti Patel has broken said codes and should be removed from her post. Johnson has decided she didn’t and that the matter is closed. The independent advisor for ministerial code has repeated...

    Manager/Coach Karl Robinson

    And yet we were told we didn’t need a new defender, and that any potential new recruit wouldn’t be fit before Mousinho anyway. Even though anybody with even 20% of their vision could see that Mousinho hasn’t even been wearing kit for over a month. Cracking little PR move putting him on to walk...

    National News Boris Johnson - PM

    You are almost certainty right, but he will be purring because he’s a fantasist and an egomaniac who doesn’t see what it is, only what he believes it to be the first steps toward. In his mind this will be him beginning a journey of turning the UK into a tech superpower, as he’s always admired...

    National News Boris Johnson - PM

    Biggest ‘defence’ spending increase since the Cole War announced. Over £16B, most of which is being chucked at the space and cyber divisions. Dommie’s still here. He’s just at home instead of inside Number 10, purring over the blueprints to the OneWeb satellite system he got us to buy earlier...

    Particularly baffling when you listen to what Robinson himself said at Charlton more than three years ago: Starts at 5:08 Everything he uses as an example of how not to recruit and build a squad is how we’ve built and recruited the last three seasons, and everything he says he wants to do is...

    To be fair, when you work for the club (and your office is at the training ground for good measure), and you’re only paid your salary to work on its behalf, you don’t really have much scope to give it the old, “Well we’ve been complete bloody garbage lately, haven’t we? What are you going to do...

    It’s a combination of shirking responsibility but also not knowing how to play their roles. There was one instance in particular in the second half last night when Henry was desperate for Clare to make an overlapping run as he was shielding the ball from two players, which had taken them out of...

    Quiet little boys. I’ve used that phrase multiple times in recent months because it’s been obvious that on paper we lacked character, and you get absolutely nowhere without it. That nobody apparently spoke up when given the opportunity in the dressing room suggests that this is a fair...

    A fair assessment, if somewhat depressing in its accuracy. For what it’s worth I agree with you about Clare. Mainly because he’s played his entire career in midfield before this season. IMO: Robinson would do well to just sign round pegs to go in round holes a bit more often. Not every player...

    He just gave him a four year contract when he already had two years left - his third contract in 2.5 years. He’s got the safest job in the division, and what anybody thinks of the suggestion is irrelevant in that regard.

    Can’t wait to hear about how we were the better team, we controlled large parts of the game especially in the second half etc. They had two cleared off the line and missed a sitter inside 60 seconds long before they eventually killed the game off. We got done, and that’s a team who came up from...

    Dreadful. We look toothless this season. The amount of meaningful chances we fashion in games this season is pitiful. It can’t be difficult to be at least slightly better in the second half. Surely.
