Nostalgia PUBLISHED: 08:00 16 February 2019 Steven Downes Alcohol is everywhere in supermarkets - but should it be kept behind a counter like cigarettes and should it carry similar health warnings on its packaging? JackF In the last decade tobacco has been made less attractive by hiding products from display in shops to printing horrible images of their effects on packets. Steven Downes believes it’s about time alcohol followed suit More than 21,000 people were admitted to Norfolk hospitals in 2017-18 with alcohol-related conditions.In Norwich, drink-linked deaths hit a 10-year high of 76 (434 in Norfolk).Alcohol is the cause of countless fights, accidents, road deaths and injuries, domestic violence and so much more.It costs the NHS billions of pounds, and stretches the Thin Blue Line to breaking point.We know all this, and yet our love affair with booze does not diminish.If we discovered that sun-dried tomatoes put us at minimal risk of arthritis, they’d be … [Read more...] about Alcohol is an accident that doesn’t wait – is it time to scale back its attractiveness?
Special Report Welcome back - the Ipswich manager is about to be shown a red card Picture: PA SPORT PA Wire Whatever happens with the FA and the charges facing Norwich City following the rather fractious East Anglian derby, you have to say that Ipswich Town were largely responsible for any bill coming this way.

Post-game, he said Norwich won because they had … [Read more...] about Chris Lakey: No yellow-tinted glasses… but there are a few things I don’t understand
Opinion Mario Vrancic was in the wars against Ipswich Town and was much-missed for the trip to Preston Picture: Paul Chesterton/Focus Images Ltd Paul Chesterton I’m not sure that too many of us would have been too surprised by Wednesday night’s performance at Preston. Having played their three main rivals for the automatic spots in the last five games as well as a particularly intense derby, there were some tired City legs and minds at Deepdale.They certainly didn’t help themselves by conceding a soft penalty and missing one of their own, but the second-half performance wasn’t bad and could have produced more on another night.It would be wrong to bemoan their luck because they have had the rub of the green more often than not this season and a game like this where very little went right was always on the cards. The worry for Daniel Farke will be the lack of dynamism in midfield in the absence of a fulcrum like Mo Leitner or Mario Vrancic to dictate … [Read more...] about Robin Sainty: ‘The top spots will be exchanged several times before we get to May’
