Just a point I would like to raise from the Accrington match.
Whilst watching the team get off the bus. There were 4 guys , aged around 28ish going on 14, who were in Town shirts etc, who were constantly taking the Michael out of other Town fans. Their approach was to stand there and use The Inbetweeners "friends" tone and make comment on the other fans because they were watching the lads get off the bus. Here is my points to those rude and ignorant fans:
1) For some people in this world at the moment it is not great, seeing the players in a real boost for them (also younger kids were watching, which should always be encouraged). These people for all they or I know maybe ill, suffering from grief or simply could be the first time they have seen players so close up. It is important to them and could give the fans a mental boost for reasons we do not know. This is coming from someone who has suffered from depression in the past and my now wife took me to watch Town at Bolton when Chopra scored last minute and it really gave me that boost.
2) They are Town fans who are likely to have spent hours and money getting there, which should always be respected. Why be like this with other Town fans?
3) The Inbetweeners joke is 10 years old, I do hope for their families, friends and partners they do not do this stale joke all the time.
4) If they were that offended then why bother still standing there watching the players get off?
I just thought it was so poor.
|Our next two games are must win games for PL sake?|

Our home game with Rotherham on Wednesday and away game at Southend on Saturday are must win games for the Town, and the tactical ability of PL.
The side and formation picked against Accrington on Sunday was an accident waiting to happen, far too lightweight, and this is not an after thought.
We must play two up front, with an old fashioned 4-4-2 being our most successful formation this year. When we play this our full backs attack and the opposition crack.
|Religion and NI|

I admit that I do not understand religion, mainly because it is made up nonsense but I am confused.
My understanding is that Catholics don't like abortion and Sinn Fein are Catholics. The DUP are opposite Sinn Fein and protestants so why is it that the DUP are so upset and Sinn Fein aren't about abortion being decriminalised in NI?
I know I have it completely wrong and I am ignorant about the nonsense but where have I got this wrong?
|Fencer and builder recommendations Stowmarket area|

We’re close to exchanging on a house near Stowmarket (Combs) and we need to get some recommendations for a couple of trades.
Anyone recommend a decent reliable fencing company?
We also need a builder who can do a garage conversion.
Plus looking for a plumber to replace a bath with a shower plus a few other bits
Be good to get some local advice.
|Chile.....join the dots edition....|

"The convulsion comes days after Chile’s centre-right leader hailed his country as a haven of Latin American tranquility that was managing to avoid the economic and political strife blighting Argentina, Paraguay, Mexico, Brazil, Peru and Ecuador.
“Chile looks like an oasis,” the billionaire conservative boasted in an interview..."
"But Paula Rivas, the president of the Metro Workers’ Union in the capital, Santiago, said the fare hike was not the driving force behind the mutiny.
“It’s the low pensions, the privatisation of water, the rise in electricity prices, the healthcare system, the need for equal education rights,” she said. “The metro fare was just the trigger, it is symbolic. It made people say, ‘enough’. We will not be silenced.”
