The Daily Cut and Thrust / You may have noticed...
(or indeed you may not) that this location is not the one that you were previously visiting to see the site.

Currently there are re-directs in place, to send you to this location.  I will also change the dns on the old site so that: trentend.co.uk points to: trentend.com and that redirects to:

talkback.trentend.com

...and hopefully we will be here for a bit.

Everything should work as before.

The Daily Cut and Thrust / I think, on balance...
..it's more trouble than it's worth to restore the small number of posts missing from when this copy of the site was made, until when this version became active.

Sorry about that.

Right, all yours...

The Daily Cut and Thrust / The new car thread, for Sean and tricky.
Right, for one reason or another it looks like we both need a car. What should we get?

Given that I'm without a job, I'm looking at something second hand, and preferably not too old or high mileage.  Circa eight grand. You should bear in mind that the only acceptable cars are an MX5, and a Ford Focus, and that we already have an MX5.

I have a set of roofbars for a 2012 Focus, if that helps.

Any suggestions?

P.S. Sean can sort out his own car thread.  I was lying.

The Daily Cut and Thrust / Anyone able to do me a courier favour?
I'm looking for someone able to pick up a receiver (AV amplifier type box, quite heavy) from hampshire, and drive it up to me in Nottingham.  Anyone in the portsmouth region, and also driving to nottingham, some time over the next couple of weeks?

Long shot, and I'm not expecting it will be possible, but there's a thing, that's a bargain, that I want but isn't worth that sort of schlep to go and get.....

The Daily Cut and Thrust / New balls please.
Womens match, at the French. Cornet against Lucic-Baroni. Lucic big hitting but making errors, Cornet scrambling but hanging in there. Really great match.

ITV4 coverage of the french this year, TV and online.  Good to see.

The Daily Cut and Thrust / The season after next....
So we're pretty much agreed next season is a bust. So what about the season after that? Most of the contracts putting us into embargo should have run out. What division will we be in? Will we have any players under contract who didn't come out of the academy? Will Britt, Blackstock, Cohen, Hobbs and Reidy (wherever they are) be fit yet? Will Fawaz still be here?

Exciting!!!!!

The Daily Cut and Thrust / Today's friday Game....
Entertaining short bearded dwarfish Canuck for the evening.....will be heading towards Ned Ludds shortly, and then working our way back via West Bridgford, if anyone fancies a half of shandy tonight.

Here or phone/text me, if you want to know where we are....and I'm able to communicate.

The Daily Cut and Thrust / It's the Woyld Cup, innit?
Had a play here at picking my team for the first game.  Not a cat in hells chance of it coming off, but there are good reasons for why I've gone how I have.

4-3-3:
............................................Hart........................................
Jones.............Cahill......................Jageilka........Baines
......................................Henderson.................................
................Lallana..................................Wiltshire............
Milner......................................................................Shaw
.........................................Rooney.....................................

I'm pretty safe from finding out how that would work out.  The rationale is try to be sound defensively (hence Jones over Johnson), have a lot of energy in mifield to run down the Italians, but also to have the movement and tempo to work them hard for an hour. Baines and Shaw to overlap, with the thought that Baines can deliver good ball in, and Shaw has the pace and energy to cover what might otherwise be an exposed flank. Milner to keep that side solid and effectively join up as an additional midfielder, allowing Lallana and Wiltshire to get past the forward (Rooney).

Changes on the hour to hopefully allow captain fantastic to nail the ball long for fresh legged Welbeck and Sturridge to chase (potentially).
