TWTWTW: Mathematically safe

As a long-suffering Norwich City fan, the last three seasons have given us a little glimpse of what it must be like to be a fan of the likes of Manchester United, Manchester City and Arsenal. Pretty much a non-stop production line of success  (in our terms anyway) of the sort we haven’t really seen … Continue reading

TWTWTW: At the current rate of production – I should really rename this feature

Yes, yes. I have been tardy, nay a little slapdash in the updating of this blog of late, and especially of this feature. You don’t want to hear excuses, but as I’m writing this, I’m going to give them to you anyway. It’s been a hellish busy start to the year. A couple of new … Continue reading

TWTWTW: Dad, when did we go on holiday to Endor?

On a personal level this week has been dominated by sport:  Norwich City gained their first home win, and frightened (at least a little bit) the mighty Manchester United; The baseball play-offs started, England managed to scrape through to the quarter-finals of the Rugby World Cup and I’m currently listening to the NFL on the … Continue reading

TWTWTW: The Revolution will not be televised – but you can print it out…

A quick one this week, no time for niceties, so once more unto the internet breach dear friends, once more… First up, some sport. Oh Micky, you’re so fine… In 1988, I was standing on the terraces of Old Trafford watching Norwich City. I saw them do this.  The reason it’s in a weekly web … Continue reading

TWTWTW: The magnificent number 7

So a week in which the financial markets decided to ape a short-lived British summer and go into extreme meltdown, and Tottenham decided to stage an impromptu version of BBC time-travel thriller Ashes to Ashes and return to the 80s, my mind was mostly on the following. First up. Football baby! The magnificent number 7 … Continue reading

TWTWTW: Balls, Bikes and Bots

In this week’s round-up there’s some lovely wooden bikes, an innovative new form of transport and some recommended listening. If you haven’t read The Best Protest Ever and Spot the Bot, might I suggest that you also take a squizz at those too. Are you sitting comfortably? Then I’ll Begin. A Kit launch like no … Continue reading

TWTWTW: Digital journalism and the Galactic Empire Times

It’s that time of the week again, a week in which failure, the future of journalism (perhaps not unconnected) and Star Wars seemed to feature fairly prominently. And I promise not to mention a certain promotion celebration Failure is an option Undercover economist and presenter of Radio 4’s More or Less Tim Harford has produced … Continue reading

TWTWTW: Kung-fu bots and going up, up, up

So another seven days, and a fairly historic week at that – but as you’ve all read about the future sovereign getting spliced and the most famous sea burial – we’ll take a look at some of the items of interest which caught my eye this week. Every Bot-ty was kung fu fighting… Great New … Continue reading

Do sports organisations need the media?

Thanks to the Nieman Media Lab twitter feed I found myself reading a an interesting post on the blog of Indiana University’s National Sport’s Journalism Center’s blog. The post by Jason Fry was referring to a comment by Mark Cuban, owner of the Dallas Mavericks, who wondered aloud whether his organisation actually needed the media … Continue reading

Definitely not the new Lionel Messi takes a bow

Two weeks ago Norwich City boss Paul Lambert made two loan signings. Forwards Sam Vokes of Wolves – a man it’s not hard to recognise in a crowd – and Liverpool striker Dani Pacheco. It’s fair to say that Pacheco generated the most buzz. Vokes was a familiar face and name from his loan spell … Continue reading
