Well done, Norwich Council
at 12:57 9 Oct 2019

https://www.theguardian.com/artanddesign/2019/oct/08/stirling-prize-architecture

Building streets of houses rather than tower blocks. I would have liked to know what the council tenants think though.

"Goldsmith Street in Norwich represents what has become a rare breed: streets of terraced homes built directly by the council, rented with secure tenancies at fixed social rents. And it’s an architectural marvel, too."

What's your points forecast for October?
at 13:10 3 Oct 2019

There are five matches this month and everyone starts with 3 points for the win at Charlton.

We now have a sequence of matches against lower ranked teams: Stoke (home), Barnsley (away), Brentford (home) and Cardiff (home).

I think we'll win the first three and draw against Cardiff to get 13 points out of a possible 15 and Cooper to be awarded Manager of the Month again.

FREE Charlton ticket
at 21:27 29 Sep 2019

UPDATE. This ticket has now been taken. There were five responses.

I have a Charlton ticket but am now unable to go there because of a (small) family emergency. Send me a message and I'll be happy to post it to you tomorrow by 1st class post. Please put whatever you think that this is worth into a charity box somewhere.

Absolutely gutted, because I've a feeling that we can win this match.

This also mentions the court case so it's becoming known about. The article is useful for bringing other fans up to speed but doesn't tell ourselves anything new.

Although I admit that I was puzzled what our link to the Scottish island of Iona could possibly be.

"Strikers on a shoestring"

What the eff is a shoestring? Is it like a guitar string? Or a string of pearls? Or are people just stringing me along?

Slow day.

Who was elected to the Trust Board?
at 17:51 4 Aug 2019

Just got an email from the Trust discussing Co-opted Vacancies on to the Trust Board. However, I haven't received any email about the Trust Board votes.

Presumably it's been announced on Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook, but I'm not on Twitter, Instagram or Facebook.

Thanks for any update.

What Should Be A Realistic Points Target for August?
at 17:25 20 Jun 2019

We have six matches in August, but what should be an acceptable points target for them? Personally, I think that 9 points would be a very satisfactory start to the season.

Last season we won only one of these fixtures and got just 5 points out of a possible 18.

Hull (Home): 2-2 (1 pt)
Derby (Away): 2-1 (0 pt)
Preston (H): 1-0 (3 pts)
QPR (A): 4-0 (0 pt)
Brum (H): 0-0 (1 pt)
Leeds (A): 2-1 (0 pt)

5 goals scored: 10 goals conceded.

Bilic is the new West Brom manager
at 17:14 13 Jun 2019

https://www.theguardian.com/football/2019/jun/13/west-brom-appoint-slaven-bilic-

Good choice, although they shouldn't have got rid of Darren Moore.

"There will need to be a rebuilding job of sorts at the club, mindful of the need to reduce the wage bill after Albion failed to return to the Premier League at the first time of asking, but Bilic has clearly received assurances that the ambition is there to mount another promotion challenge next season. Albion are confident they have found the right man to deliver on that front."

This has now been posted on the Brighton fans forum by their supporters doing their research, one of the comments is "I don't understand. All those players running towards the other team's goal. What sort of insane idea of football is this? Why isn't everyone behind the ball where they belong?" Hughton sounds like a very defensive manager.
