I miss Jim
at 23:19 11 Feb 2020

Yeah I know Mick was great, and he saved us and we performed miles above where we should be, but I'll be honest I never really warmed to the bloke and whilst I never joined in anything against him and always respected him I wasn't that bothered to see him go.

I hated Keane with a passion, before he came, while he was here and ever after. PJ was just like a sad joke that kept on getting sadder and funnier.

PL has flattered to deceive, briefly, and then gone down the PJ route.

I've not really felt the same way about the club since Jim went if I'm honest, though I guess there is another common denominator there.

Who's our best player?
at 14:25 24 Jan 2020

Fit and on form, no allowance for injury proneness or potential etc just on ability when fit and playing well?

Huws? KVY? Bishop? Judge?

The best league in the world
at 18:38 22 Jan 2020

Who watches it? Watches Prem matches on a regular basis?

I love football, go see Town, watch a bit of non league but not watched more than the odd match a season in the Prem for about a decade. I couldn't recognise most Premier League players these days.

Am I alone? Am I unusual in being a football supporter with little interest in the Premier League?

Anybody recommend somewhere for a pre-match lunch?
at 17:15 21 Jan 2020

Looking to stop and get lunch before the Posh game on the way from London. It's my birfday and the other half is coming with me, her second Town game ever, and fancy stopping somewhere along the way.

Will be driving through from London so ideally somewhere Colchester onwards, thinking pub grub rather than anything fancy and she's a veggie to complicate matters.

Went to see 1917 earlier
at 19:18 18 Jan 2020

Went to the first showing at the Imax on the South Bank so was back in time for commentary.

I thoroughly enjoyed it, thought it was a very good film with good performances but the cinematography is breathtaking.

I was aware that it's presented as an almost continuous shot and worried that might detract from it a bit but actually thought it worked really well.

Much like Saving Private Ryan I walked away thinking how the hell did those guys manage to live through that, I'm well aware many didn't.

If you're thinking about seeing it then make sure you catch it on a big screen, it deserves it.

I realised how lacking my education was this week
at 22:42 9 Jan 2020

My Mum is away this week and I've been doing some decorating for her in her absence. As she has Sky I've had the History channel on in the background while I've been working, I love wall to wall WW2 docs.

Late morning however there's this ancient aliens programme on (title might be wrong) and I've been amazed at what I've learnt.

The Yeti(s) are offspring of either Gods or aliens and particularly beautiful women from ancient times.

Leonardo De Vinci fell through a hole in time and spent time in the future.

The Nazis were building a time machine during the war, and the guy in charge of building it used it to disappear when the war was lost. The best bit of this though was the fact that they didn't actually invent it, but copied it from ancient Buddhist examples.

These were the least outrageous things I learnt, there was a good article about how the world had a series of nucleur power stations thousands of years ago too, the evidence was compelling.

I know my school was cr4p, but had no idea I missed so much. Sadly I'm down for the week and so will miss out on my education tomorrow morning.

Brexit and the new governement are starting to make a hell of a lot more sense.

Sensible soccer anyone?
at 21:56 7 Jan 2020

Loved that game and it's going to be on a stamp. I played every one of those games back in the day except Dizzy, don't remember that at all.

Looking at Elite, and seeing Elite Dangerous now shows just how far we have come in such a relatively short space of time with digital entertainment.

FM20 Question
at 12:07 22 Nov 2019

Made the mistake of buying this, to be honest I shouldn't have as I have things i should be doing and I know it will end up in very late nights, but anyway.

Anybody know how to see your attendance when in match mode? I just can't see it, I know it's not normally available until after half time.

Oh and had a solid start, top three all season so far deep into November playing mostly 5-3-3. Norwood only just scored his first goal, was about to give up on him, he got injured and is out for a month about 15 minutes later. Jackson doing well though, Downes is absolutely top notch.

Any jazz fans on here?

Just been given free tickets to the Barbican for tomorrow night. I love a bit of Roy Ayers and a lot of jazz influenced stuff but don't really know anything beyond that, not sure what to expect but looking forward to it.

Surely the only reason to cast James Dean in a new film is for publicity?

60 Days In

Just binge watched season one on Netflix, anybody seen it?

I found myself watching with horrified fascination, hardly able to contemplate how I'd react in the same circumstances.

For those not aware, it's secret cameras filming volunteer inmates in an American County Jail, nobody including the guards are aware that they're not just new inmates.

The men's section in particular came across as a horrific experience where you had to literally fight for your place in the pecking order, or at least be prepared to do so.

Leaving shortly to watch Smith get a duck
at 09:17 13 Sep 2019

Now it doesn't matter too much (though a drawn series is not a bad result) he's going to get that failure he's due.

I won't be too sad to miss out on watching him either, lots of great batsman you can sit and enjoy, even if they're destroying England's bowling attack but Smith's not really one to enjoy. Appreciate yes, enjoy no.

Could be a McGrath moment?
at 12:22 18 Aug 2019

Smith out of the rest of this game, and could well miss the next Test, I think with the introduction of Archer the pendulum could have swung for England for the next test if Smith doesn't play?

He's been the difference so far, I think we're marginally better than them without him.

I do enjoy it when big companies get it wrong

Yahoo paid $1.1 Billion for Tumblr in 2013, set about sanitizing it and making it wholesome (not that there was anything illegal in much of what they purged, just some slightly 'different' communities) and are about to sell it for $3M.

Did someone say the dot com boom was over?
