  • My screen invaded by an advert for beds or sofas or decking or dogfood or something mid-post! Trying to suggest that Sunday games should be played at more accessible venues than Carrow Road. Eccles-on-Sea or Briston for example. :-)

  • Why is it only for the last game of the season? They've been very poor for previous games. I once sent them a list of games but they did nothing. I bet they won't increase the number of carriages.
