Walking off in a fairly relaxed fashion at the end there. I'm no physician but looked encouraging.

Good goal from the shaggy haired target man today.

Anyone else working from home and almost completely unable to concentrate?

I usually try to pay attention to things at least 50% of the time - that's the personal target I set for myself anyway - can't say I always hit it :)

But fcuk me! - not sure I'm hitting 25% at the minute!
Exercise helps but my aging knees can't be exercising every minute of the bleedin' day.
Music streamer things
at 16:13 8 Apr 2020

Any bored hifi-cologists have a recommendation?

I don't need one with an amp etc. Have a four year old NAD D3020 thing for that - just would like it to be able to:

A) Stream Spotify etc over wifi
B) Play the lossless iTunes files from my iMac in the hall through it - believe I need Airplay for that. (Have also thought about splitting the ethernet cable that's sitting in the powerline adaptor nearby to connect directly to whatever streamer I get, but not sure if iTunes approves of that kind of thing).

Am thinking about this:

Or maybe this:

Any others? I know there are more expensive options but they seem to have preamps and DACS which I don't think I need because that's already covered by the NAD thing.

Any and all cabin-fevered views welcome.

Obviously there's a lot that I don't know and see etc but SHIRLEY FFS I don't need a lucrative career in the city and an edifying year or two with the finest coaches in Europe, eating olives and discussing tiles, to know not to bring the rat boy on when we're trying to fcuking win! I actually love JS but the rat boy knows that himself.

You've got Tim Ream there - all BOS would have had to do was look at him and he'd have fallen over. Do not get that one at all.

Building trade espionage and such
at 15:08 26 Sep 2019

Looking for a bit of building/espionage trade inside knowledge if possible amigos. A mate is in a dispute with people who have bought land next door. Basically they're building a very large house that's creating a lot of disruption and they've never gone about things the right way. So there's a fair bit of tension about property boundaries etc. Anyway:

A few weeks ago he noticed that someone had stuck what looked like a yellow sim card to his front garden wall just within the boundary of his property. So he ripped it off and binned it - thought it could be an attempt to tap into his Wi-Fi but didn’t think much more of it.

Yesterday a guy from the building company got in contact saying he wanted to stick something on the side of his house. He told my friend's wife it was a camera so he could check the builders were only doing what they should be doing. Again it looked like a yellow SIM card - i.e. didn't seem to have a lens. He wonders why a small building company would need to monitor their workers to check they were behaving themselves, especially when a job of that size would have a manager/supervisor permanently there and the workers seem to do as they are told anyway.

With the first SIM card looking thing whoever put it there must have been on the pavement but had just leaned over to apply it. He (or she) had stuck something like blu tack (but white and more adhesive) to the wall and then stuck the sim card (or similar) onto it.

It's all a bit strange and he's not quite sure what it is or what they're trying to achieve with this - other than they're up to summat.

Can anyone shed light on what that device is and what they think it's for? My guess would be it's aliens walking among us in human form, recruiting spare flesh for experiments and whatnot, but as I say that's only a guess. Anyway thanks in advance.

Got out of jail, hung onto the three points. Has to be an avalanche of learning opportunities from that one, fcukin hell.
New shirt sizes
at 10:48 12 Sep 2019

This season's shirt looks so good I'd actually like to be able to wear it from time to time. Just wondering how they are for size? Say for example one possessed a somewhat chunky, sort of dependable body shape - almost like a Ricky Gervais kind of physique but a bit more muscular. Has anyone of similar gifts bought one and if so what size? XL? That was a really good fit as far as last season's went.
Team for today
at 11:41 17 Aug 2019

Maybe something like:
Kane Hall Barbs Manning
Smith Cameron
BOS Eze Chair

Could be construed as a bit too attacking but I think those three together can cause enough problems to keep Brizzle occupied. Wouldn't be surprised to see Scowen or Amos as one of the three though. Smith looked really good to me on Tuesday and deserves a start I think. Pugh to come one for at least half an hour. Quite a lot of options!...
So the BfG lives on?
at 19:03 8 Aug 2019

Seems to be the case doesn't it? Unless something got 'faxed through' and not yet announced.
at 17:06 3 Aug 2019

That's why you keep him, Mark - for exactly that situation. Battering ram.

I know he may be on a wedge but hope nobody comes in for him. As long as he's happy to stick around he can still be a big part of things regardless of the preferred formation.

'Kane did not make a first-team appearance for Chelsea but...'

Stop there Todd - no need to apologise.. That makes you a far more acceptable signing. Welcome to a proper team yong maan.

What the fcuk is going on with his continued omission? He's eleven times better than Lynch, you can see that as soon as he runs on. I hope there isn't going to be some 'couldn't settle' or 'kept looking at Les's missus' situation. He's no Beckenbaur but leaving him out like this just seems bizarre. Obviously a continuation of the McLaren thinking today from Eustace which doesn't exactly help him. If he had a brain he'd have put him straight back in.

I'm shit with money but even I know we can't sell him for less than £75mill.

Just back
at 23:10 15 Feb 2019

A game of fine margins against an expensively assembled team. Some things could have been done better at both ends but I was proud of us so no point talking about it.

On the Ellerslie Road afterwards there was a whole 'EPL' style camera and light crew scene interviewing a Watford fan - quickly swarmed by children screaming 'Watford are shit'.

Proud and gutted in equal measure.

Does anyone have any latest news on when they're back? I know they're old but it seems to be taking a while.
Ankle sprains
at 10:05 6 Jan 2019

Anybody know a lot about ankle pulls/sprains/strains/knackerings? I've done something odd to mine. Was at the gym on Wed and Thurs nights - doing the right thing for mind and body etc etc...

On Friday morning I was cycling to work and felt a pull on the outside of my left ankle. Hobbled around a bit during the day but when I cycled home it seemed to make it worse - it's a far from strenuous 'commute' so I'm guessing that there was too much tension in my calf or something like that? The problem seems to be with one or more of the ligaments - the PTFL, ATFL or CFL according to google.

Anyway I'm now finding that my ankle constantly wants to roll out to the left. I'll try to do a proper R-I-C-E on it but wondering which calf/ankle stretches I should be doing to alleviate and prevent it. Thanks, any pointers gratefully received.

No but seriously folks....
You could see we were trying a few things. Sometimes too many things, that not all of the players knew about. But after the fist 15 mins that game was partly about experimentation.

Washington did that thing that he something does where he starts like Messi and finishes like Stefan Moore but he kept working.
Lumley's distribution was infinitely better but in a non pressure situation.
My battery's dying. Overall 6/10.

It's too expensive these days and the tickets come out too far in advance.

I might want to see First Aid Kit in November but I'm not coughing up 36.50 plus booking fee 6 months beforehand.

What happened to the joy and spontaneity of it all? Bag of shyte.

Just putting this up in commemoration. Jordan's dad, John is a QPR supporter and a lovely fella. His son died of a completely unexpected stroke last year at the age of 23. There was a memorial match for him Monday before last at LR which was organised by his friend who works in the box office. Great respect to the club for giving them all the run of the place and helping to raise some money.

If anyone does want to contribute this link will hopefully work:

I'll tell you what does MY head in
at 20:43 23 May 2018

Watchdog. I'd rather enter into a binding agreement for a bogus timeshare in the comfort of my highly flammable BMW than sit through another second of this amateur dramatics version of Glengarry Glen Ross.

Of course if they pulled any of this deviant shit on my granny, god rest her soul, that would be another matter - I'd be straight on the blower to that northern Gill Dando bird and that cheeky chappy Del Boy bloke.

But under the current circumstances I will continue to buy my Chicago Town Deep Dish pepperoni pizzas at my local Iceland and be humbly grateful to do so.
