  1. I can't help but be fascinated by Musk's various business ventures. Like it or not they will have an impact on how we live too. So this is a thread for all things Musk be it Tesla, SpaceX, Starlink, Boring, Neuralink etc. Most recently I've seen this video of a monkey who's playing ping pong with his mind after having a Neuralink chip inserted into his brain: Incredible tech.
  2. Phwoaarr! I'm not getting involved in these conspiracies!
  3. Interesting that Ashton will now be working with Paul Cook, the man many hoped for in the summer but by the sounds of things never got too close to the job.
  4. Yeah I see your point. He will have had positive impacts in some areas too. Personally I look at the hugely expensive squad we've assembled, many of the remaining squad with little or reduced value, lots of OOC etc as something Ashton will be responsible for and simply it isn't good enough. That's without considering how he may have a hand in the conditioning/ physio teams that have had a poor season, without comment on his interviewing or lack of. You mention the toxicity around his position too and all things considered a fresh start is appealing. There will be new appointme
  5. I hope you would have told him the nearest testing centre was in Ipswich
  6. I remember Sir Alex said that he thought modern pitches increased injuries, impact in particular, because players were playing at an increased speeds. Agree with others in the thread it's hard to think it's not a recovery/ conditioning problem.
  7. You've said it yourself - Ashton overseas the recruitment team. If there is no philosophy for us to recruit with, the recruitment will be more scattergun (which is what we've seen). The result of that, amongst other things, is no coherent style on the pitch and an unbalanced squad both of which have really come to a head this season, but it's been a problem that's developed over multiple seasons. That's without considering the contract situations of the squad etc which Ashton is also responsible for. Ashton has to take responsibility for that in my view.
  8. Mariappa (Vyner) Palmer VC (Massengo) Wells C (Diedhiou)
  9. I like Christopher Nolan's stuff. Inception & Interstellar both high up on the list for me. Enjoyed Tennet recently too. Enjoyed Parasite, The Joker, The Revenant, The Martian, Shawshank Redemption and Forest Gump will probably be on a few lists, liked Django Unchained, not a big war film fan but I liked Hacksaw Ridge. I like The Wolf of Wall Street but some people proper rave about it and I'm not at that level with it myself
  10. Scott looked bright in the 45 mins he got. Played some nice passes including a nice through ball to Delap, looked composed. Encouraging he took set pieces too.
  11. Looks like the swear filter has edited that bit!
  12. Interesting article on The Athletic: https://theathletic.co.uk/2474476/2021/03/25/manager-burnout-brutal-truths-about-alcohol-dreading-matches-and-the-relief-of-being-sacked/?redirected=1 Below is the section on Pearson for those that don't have a subscription. “When Dad used to get home — he still does it now but not as bad because I think he realises that phones are fairly important; it was only four years ago that he discovered what WhatsApp was — he would just turn his phone off and he wouldn’t be available,” James Pearson says. “Sometimes if it was urgent. Mum would have A
  13. Great shift this year from Zak Vyner - really stepped up. In August I wouldn't have predicted Bakinson to have played the second most amount of midfield minutes at this stage of the season!
