The view from the Pu – October
at 00:03:43

Excellent "View from" this month, really enjoyed that.

ericgen: warburton's are a widely available purveyor of baked goods in the UK. Though personally I lay off their bread (which if you are French will not impress you) and stick to their very decent crumpets.

Lambert facing uphill battle to save Ipswich - Interview
at 00:51:55

I don't suppose many here have much nice to say about Paul Lambert but that was really interesting thread about what he is doing at Ipswich.

I quite like both East Anglian clubs, so good luck to Ipswich in the New Year. But I want three points off them on Boxing Day and if their keeper can throw three shots from Eze into the net to boost his confidence that'd do nicely.

QPR go three for three at expense of Villa and Terry - Report
at 20:08:22

Top three comments this week:
1. The Leistner charge
2."If there’s ever been a more Sunday league moment in the professional game than Scowen climbing out of the dugout with his kit all over the place, necking a can of Red Bull, to go on and man mark a young lad with an outlandish haircut, fake tan and spray on shorts then I haven’t seen it"
3. Grealish's shorts/VAT

We probably ought to hold some sort of end of season competition for zingers.

Changing tack? – Preview
at 21:52:55

Great piece as usual.

I've been really disappointed with the direction McClaren's taken but even I have to admit that the obvious transfer business was to strengthen central defence and get a goal-scorer in, and under our FFP punishment loans seem the only way. Trouble is that means we really have to play them, not just have them strengthening the squad.

I query signing two strikers and one central defender, with Smyth and Eze (plus BOS, Pav, and Chair available in the wide roles that Smyth and Eze may get pushed into while Hemed and Wells occupy the centre) I'd have gone the other way round.

Still really peed off about the Manning loan too.

The mid-season report – Column
at 23:55:20

Excellent and spot on about the manager and youth team.

If Manning, Shodipo and/or Furlong get a go this year and disappoint I think we need to remember how they've ben treated. I'm not saying they should all have been starting regularly but if we are going down this route of developing our own players there has to be a system to it, not just chucking the kids in, building them up, and then bombing them out for not being the complete article. I'd expect all three of those to have gone backwards but the potential they showed means they could still go forwards if they are treated right.

The 5th annual LFW deadline day brunch and barbecue spectacular - Live Blog

Matt Smith may have gone to Pates school in Cheltenham but it isn't private, its a state grammar - my daughter goes there and I can promise you that if the fees were 50p a week I couldn't afford them right now.

It is however quite posh as rich skinflints have worked out that the education is better than most public schools and so sending your kids there saves you a fortune. Its ferociously competitive which suggests that he is (whisper it) actually quite bright. Probably what makes him so slow, brain still engaged with 12th century Latvian literature or something instead of actual football.

"Football supporters have quietly moved from abusing the opposition for being the opposition, to abusing their own team for not justifying the outlay to come and watch them."

And from that, and above all the causes that lie behind it that you raise, you have pretty much everything wrong with English football.

Brilliant analysis of Joey Barton at Burnley vs Joey barton at QPR.

That is what we need. Not "sign this player, sack that player, play him, drop him" but a good hard look at who we have and what we need them to do. And then bloody well telling them.

Shrewd additions down a well-worn path - signings
at 23:24:42

QPR were always likely to start the season slowly after the shambolic organisation of the pre-season, and that’s probably the biggest reason for the lacklustre start at Charlton, and the blowing of a two goal lead at home to Cardiff

5 points lost due to avoidable screw up. Spilt milk and all that, but I really hope for better next summer

I'm pretty sure we aren't going to sign Roberto Baggio. This time last year, it was quite likely. More than when the Sub had it as their back page headline.
