  1. I think Ipswich's play-off chances have gone now too. I feel your pain.
  2. Mings has a bit of form for "hard" challenges which surprises me as while at Ipswich, he didn't appear to have that sort of mentality. I asked my eldest if he was going to watch the Norwich v Ipswich match at the weekend and he said he would until Norwich got their 4th goal. What he's going to do for the remaining 70 minutes, time will tell. It really could be an absolute mauling. I just want this season over with.
  3. Burton must be rubbish. Ipswich haven't lost 9-0 in Manchester for well over 20 years.
  4. There's no chance of Lambert keeping us up. I still don't wish McCarthy had stayed, the football under him was awful. I also can't see Evans going anytime soon; he'd have to waive the debt (which is in his name) but we're hardly an attractive proposition these days for any new investor.
  5. Ipswich tried a young ambitious manager from the lower leagues in the summer. It hasn't gone tremendously well since then.
  6. Yes it was harsh, but it was correct. It was a warning - she had no need to react like that. It was a judgement call by the umpire and she should have just taken it. Quite why she thought her having a daughter was relevant, god only knows. Her subsequent behaviour was utterly ridiculous. Billy Jean King's comments after the match, equally so.
  7. Thanks John... doesn't say how you stop it though. I think Cross Fell is going to have to go.
  8. Aye - well, the snow in the photos was from the late Feb/early March dumping and the snow in the videos was from a few weeks later. The last patch on Cross Fell disappeared only this week.
  9. As everyone embarking on the mid to late 40s dreams of, I've had to move in with my Dad for a while as he recovers from illness. He lives in a village that lies at the foot of the Pennines in Cumbria and is prone to the Helm Wind; apparently the only named wind in the UK. He's lived in the house for years, and while I know it can get windy there, I've never really experienced what the Helm Wind can do. Here area a few videos to give you an idea.... https://photos.app.goo.gl/2Pe8FFCLcWp3Dg7o2 Bear in mind that it can be almost dead calm just 3 or 4 miles away. I hate wind, but it can be quite pretty, particularly when it forms a Helm bar...a bank of cloud which breaks off and hangs over the Eden Valley. I still hate wind though.
  10. And the benefit of a Greenland High is the blocking it provides against an Atlantic onslaught? I've only been here for 11 years - you're going to have to bear with me.
  11. We're going to be a bit stricter about off-topic posting while it could potentially turn cold. Please use the ramp/moan thread for anything that isn't model-related and anyone who says "I know this is off topic but" and still posts, will be banned.
  12. Just to remind people, this is the Model Discussion Thread, not the Ian Ferguson Twitter Thread! With thanks OON
  13. This is the Model Discussion Thread. In fairness to those who want to visit the Model Discussion Thread to see discussion about, or discuss, model output, please stick to model discussion. I hope that clarifies things?!
  14. Just a reminded to members - it's December 7th. Many thanks. 

  15. Wettest place in the UK had 70.4mm? I had 21mm more than that. I know I'm not official but that's a very low total for the wettest place.
  16. Oh I see - sorry! I meant Nov 2010 when we had all the lying snow and a sub zero end to the month. No wonder you were confused!
  17. Highest temp 13.6º Lowest temp -6.4º Mean temp 3.4º Air frosts 17 Rainfall 91.8mm Highest gust 35mph
  18. I was just simply comparing it to last year because it's the most recent comparison to hand!
  19. The mean temperature here for November was 3.4º with 17 separate air frosts. This beats even Nov 2015 for number of frosts and the mean temp (if you're looking for cold). I do wonder why so many people pore over the models looking for cold when actually what we had in November was quite noteworthy in itself.
  20. Well plenty who live here did need more speed and they're benefiting greatly. I agree - seems unfair but I think Cumbria's qualified for some European money from the Rural Development Fund so it's not directly at the expense of other areas.
