The ability to put the ball into an empty net from the halfway line of: Michael Robinson RIP.

It's a niche skill, I admit, but I still get a warm glow from it so I'd hate it to be missed out.

A bit surprised that John Spencer has got in ahead of Clive Allen (or Gary Bannister come to that) for finishing.

Looks like there's no way I'll be able to have hordes of relatives and in-laws round for Christmas.

Best bit of news I've had for months.

Yeah, but how good is he with the striker two yards out and the defence performing a dance routine on the halfway line?

Oh for goodness sake, I'm going to have to do this myself, aren't I?

This from Bosh:

With Dieng he needs a chance. As on other threads I think the problem with our keepers is deeper than are they any good or not. It's how they command their area given the system we play.

Plus This from Bazza:

Lumley has been excellent since the return from lockdown in my opinion. In regards to the other night, there is a difference between should have done better and giving away the goal. Lumley was guilty of the former.

I found it sad that when the entire defence (but especially Wallace) allowed the opposing CF a free header from a few yards out the immediate reaction here was that Lumley must go.

That said, one of the things that would improve the defence is a keeper who balled out defenders when they go missing and it's hard for Lumley to do that credibly. Not sure a youngster like Dieng will be better.

(Also sad that when literally the first time we go behind people are straight on Warburton's case, as if no other football team has ever gone behind in a match. There was lots wrong with our performance, and not just in defence, as Hunterhoop pointed out at the time, and Warburton admitted after the game, but I wonder if Cov fans reacted to our pen like that?)

Riches to rags, beauty to beast, QPR crash at Cov - Report
at 09:46 20 Sep 2020

Amen to the last three sentences.

That said, we can all learn stuff. Mikey Holding isn't just "one man with his view" he is one man who lived what he is talking about which does count for rather more than the opinion of one man like, say, me, who hasn't. Who "the man" is matters.

Personally I found the interview with Ebony Rainsford-Brent that was linked with it even more powerful, because it wasn't the experience of a black man back in the dark old days, it was the experience of being a black woman a generation younger than me, shoes I've never walked in, growing up in one of the most diverse and tolerant cities on the planet, and it's still an eye-opener.

That's a really good report. In fact two good reports - a balanced fair critique of QPR's performance in the game and and bang-on-the-money attack on the cr*p that passes for positive action these days.

We live in a country where pulling down statues (if you're a lefty) or singing the words to Rule Britannia (if you're a righty) count for more than actually doing anything, whether it's progressive or patriotic.

Decent interview. Proof of the pudding is whether he can change things.

Intriguing. Can't help feeling something needs to give at Forest.

Not really where we need a player, though, IMO.

Agree on fair play to the Aussies. Whisper it, but I don't mind most of this lot of them.

Yeah, hell of a gamble by Morgan giving Rashid the ball, he had a poor game.Though he did get that wicket that brought us back into he game.

But I like that about Morgan, willing to back his bowlers. Sometimes Root makes it obvious he doesn't trust bowler.

Driving my daughter home from school - Year 7/1st form secondary, hormones kicking in. Year or so after her mum died. All sorts of crap going down.

Not really a Beatles fan but more or less randomly this came on the stereo and we both sang along full blast.

Always takes me back to sh*t times and getting through them together. Driving her to uni this weekend, might sneak the CD into the car.

Science news - Stonehenge acoustics
at 17:42 17 Sep 2020

Following on from the Venusian news, I learnt today that a scientist has made a scale model of Stonehenge when it was complete (before half the stones went or fell down) and has found that it improves acoustics in the middle by adding bass and reverb.

It turns out that the best scale for making a model was 1:12. Apparently it was only when he was halfway through making the model that the Spinal Tap reference struck him.

U23 game
at 21:48 16 Sep 2020

Got to say that one of the big losses of covid has been Smegma's excellent U-23 write-ups, which were great for getting a bit of nuance about development of young players and which you don't really get from just the scoreline.
