    Cliff Richard

    Lots of interesting things coming out of this. I was listening to a lawyer on the radio tonight saying that, despite journalistic claims to the contrary nothing too much has actually changed - the police have never been able to release names of suspects before they are charged, unless it is in the public interest. The police didn't release Cliff's name, the BBC did. Cliff was never charged. It was the BBC that claimed 'public interest' to justify their editorial decision. The judge felt it wasn't in the public interest. So this is not, despite newspaper claims, a significant change/limitation on press freedom. The damages are significant - one of the highest awarded in this type of case ie not one of slander or libel but one of invasion of privacy. But the amounts appear to reflect the use of a helicopter and that the beeb put the coverage forward for an award. It's more than irritating that mistakes by both SYP and the BBC will be paid for by you and me. The chances of any individual taking the rap is low. I still think that in any legal case involving sex, given the potential reputational consequences, both parties should be entitled to anonymity until the case is decided. I can see an argument why someone alleging they were raped/assaulted should continue to be anonymous even if they lose a case, but that doesn't mean that the accused's name should be known, if they are found innocent. If that means the police and/or CPS have to work harder then so be it.

    v Mansfield Town (A) Match Thread

    Well that was an interesting evening at the oldest professional football ground in the world. Presume it's true but didn't know that. Not a bad little ground, once they let you in, good surface, three good stands and one non-existant one. A number of interesting bits apart from the football. The warm up process is very different - some mini game but not as much, a lot of ball work with players in pairs and no shooting practice for strikers and others. Whether any of that will change remains to be seen. Secondly, I've never seen a Derby manager get applauded by opposition fans before the match. It'll be interesting to see if that continues into the season but it looks as if Frank is loved more widely than just in Derby. And thirdly, Jody Morris. For one relatively small he strikes me as a brooding, malevolent presence. Ying to Frank's yang. I wouldn't like to cross him if I were a player. And I'm very glad he is too. We need someone like that in the club - an Archie or a Carlin to tell everyone the truth. Wish we had it on the pitch a bit more. It wouldn't surprise me if he ended up as Chelsea's manager and not Frank. But that's for the future. I like him. He won't be bothered whether I do or don't. And as for the game. Forgettable in many ways. Thomas continued to make a good case to feature regularly in the squad and maybe the team; Bogle was good in bits; I thought Tom Lawrence did well overall and Bryson too; Mason took his goal well and was lively; Andre was an interesting centre half and did OK. We gave 3 sloppy goals away and that was disappointing. A number did their chances of featuring no good at all including Jamie Hanson (a pity), Thorne (a big pity), Roos, Blackman and Butters. Saturday's team will be interesting because tonight was always a game to give opportunities to players to get some match practice but Saturday will be different and we will see whether and how Mount and Wilson fit in. And, finally. Style. This feels to be very different from Rowett's way. And Clement's. Keeping possession, making triangles, players moving into space to receive the ball, plenty of hard work and lots of running when we don't have the ball, to close down and get it back but also getting it forward quickly. This style feels to me like hard work, especially at this time of the season. It wouldn't surprise me if we got off to a slow start, results wise. But stick with it fellow fans it could be a lot of fun.

    RamsTV Feedback

    Watched the whole match for a fiver today. Thought it was excellent. Perfectly good commentary, good analysis from Shane (who knocks Ramage into a cocked hat) and good camera work/replays etc Well worth the money and would do it again if I needed to.

    Villa need to sell to avoid administration

    I'll say one thing for old bum face - he shows every sign so far of sticking it out and helping Villa through their financial and player issues when it might have been easier for him to engineer a move. Unlike some.
