Re: England Squad

It's also very easy to class everything as discrimination when you have a particular characteristic. I wouldn't know - I'm a white man who has had every privilege that brings with it and that is a very powerful mask. I think it would be rather churlish of me to suggest I know better than the people...

Re: England Squad

Surprisingly hard to spot discrimination when you don't share that particular characteristic. Ask a woman.

Until about 6 years ago I’d always have milk in my coffee, and never really took to the drink. Then, while working onsite a client convinced me to try it black and BOOM! Coffee finally made sense.

Re: Rumours, wishlists and general tomfoolery

Surely a mean value is much too simplistic. If the selling club has a higher value than anyone is willing to pay, then his value is > offered ammount, but not necessarily halfway between the offer and the asking price. Oh, I agree, it is simplistic. That's why I said at the start "on a simplistic l...

Re: Rumours, wishlists and general tomfoolery

I think you are all wrong. There is more context here. On a simplistic level: - A player is worth what someone will pay for them to the people making the purchase . If a selling club wants twice what is offered then they aren't worth that much to anyone apart from the selling club . I think you'd re...

Figure I will try to create these threads on the day after a match (or if it's weekday match a little earlier). Not the day after the match that they are about I'm assuming? Also, impressive level of agreement on the poll so far. I think we may be entering the early stages of evolution into a hive ...

Imagine football clubs as airtight nordic bakeware, some regularly repaired and well maintained, regularly replaced seals etc... other’s neglected and allowed to fall into disrepair. Now imagine that losing creates pressure within these containers. I imagine we wont know how well our nordic bakewar...

Re: Rumours, wishlists and general tomfoolery

Sounds like there is a strong perception of a right mess behind the scenes there. It's nice to reflect on how settled things are at Rovers at the moment. Amazing what winning can do.
