Although Covid-19 is very serious it is lovely to see wildlife ranging wider now
at 12:10 28 Mar 2020

Some cities are getting visits from creatures that have not been seen in them for many years:

Mike Ashley - damage limitation or genuine change of heart?
at 09:11 27 Mar 2020

Just heard on the news that Sports Direct's boss, as well as withdrawing his suggestion that the company are an essential supplier, is offering the delivery lorries for the supply of true essentials. It is actually a good initiative but I suspect many will see it as just a public relations stunt.

Any thoughts?

Anyone watching 'OJ:Made In America'?
at 17:06 26 Mar 2020

The Beeb have just put it up again but only available until Tuesday evening, over six hours of programme! I never thought I could get so absorbed in something about a sportsman who plays a game I have no interest in, but the commentary in terms of race relations, self promotion, the psychology of advertising and the economics of America (amongst other things) is very revealing.

BBC have a news item for divorced parents, those needing an MOT, allotments etc.

Quite why it is under the world-asia-china tab I don't know.

Also, I was squashing as much as I could into the heading - divorced parents do not need an MOT

My solution to no Match of the Day last night
at 12:28 15 Mar 2020

was to watch the first episode of Series Five of 'Inside No. 9' which was set in a referees dressing room before, at half time and after a Championship match. They threw everything but the kitchen sink at it, David Morrissey and Ralf Little were just as out there as Reece Shearsmith and Steve Pemberton. It's football Jim but not as we know it:

What's happened to the chat room?
at 15:52 14 Mar 2020

Boooooooo Gav out!

People are asking where the coronavirus came from and it cannot be a coincidence that it started not long after the widget disappeared from the chat room. The widget had done so much to improve itself but it was still spurned, just because we were in the Third Division. You can see how it wanted to take its revenge upon humanity.

So I think we should all be extra nice to the memory of the widget and commemorate all those good times it gave us by imagining a game from this season where the widget told its own story, a story that was more in keeping with the tradition of Ipswich Town as the fairy tale of unexpected success. I'll start with an opening game of the season and supporters are slightly non-plussed by the two million pound sale of Janoi Donacien to Derby County but then elated when Marcus Evans declares he will match this receipt out of his own pocket and all the funds are ploughed into a season long loan of Connor Wickham. His return to the Town squad sees him score a hat trick in the five nil away win at Burton.

Anyone got the half time score from Bristol Rovers?

Owners since the Cobbolds - am I right in thinking it is three?
at 16:44 8 Mar 2020

Firstly the Fisons collective thing, cannot remember the exact composition now.

Then Sheepshanks and co.

And now marcusevans group.

Reason for this enquiry is to assert that there was some continuity of the club as an entity for the Town and the county beyond, perhaps even a little bit of that Corinthian ideal the Cobbolds espoused. Now, however it is dressed up, it seems to me that, as Paul Hurst let slip in his first interview in post, it is a business first and a club a very distant second. And therein lies the problem as it induces a conformity to financial necessity that far outweighs spirit and a shared aim between manager, team and supporters.
