Works the other way too, where you turn people down because you think you've got someone starting, only for them to not turn up.
Not sure that's strictly the opposite of having your job under threat because of a possible takeover, but yes, it's another thing that happens. :D

Not just exclusive to football clubs, that.

Re: General Election

It would be good to know how people employed in zero-hour contracts are categorised, the ONS also published estimates in April 2018 that it was 901,000. Also from a biannual survey of businesses it indicated that there were 1.8m contracts that did not guarantee a minimum number of hours, this repre...

Re: Cricket

Seemed like a weird trial. Stokes and the two guys he was fighting all tried at once, and the two people who probably would have made key witnesses not called by either side. I'm not really sure how the jury could come to any other verdict from what I've read (which has been weighted towards Stokes ...

Re: General Election

Indeed... after nearly a decade of draconian cuts, low corporation tax and taking benefits away from people with disabilities... employment is nearly back to its pre-2008 crash levels. :hyper: https://www.ons.gov.uk/employmentandlabourmarket/peopleinwork/employmentandemployeetypes/bulletins/uklabou...

90th + 5 minute, looking for a win. That's why the keeper is up at that minute.
That doesn't really clear it up. The question was really what the hell have the Americans done to "soccer" that means it's all or nothing in the last minute of normal time? Why is a draw as good as a defeat?

Re: England Squad

I'm not sure it's all just racism, but Sterling was singled out as the scapegoat before a ball was even kicked at the World Cup. It put extra pressure on him to do something that made some positve headlines for him for a change, plus prejudiced fans against him so that his mistakes were highlighted ...

Historically, there's never been a proven gibbon psychopath. True story. Did you ever read this story about how the UK government toyed with recruiting psychopaths to step up to positions of authority in the event of a nuclear war - because... they have no feelings for others, nor moral code, and t...

Re: Rumours, wishlists and general tomfoolery

I confused my language writing responses to your pointless nitpicking. I made a perfectly reasonable initial point that you turned into yet another point scoring borefest. Not really. You called it "very odd" that a fan of another club would take exception to what they considered a low bid for one ...

Re: Rumours, wishlists and general tomfoolery

Gibbon is right that a players valuation is ultimately what a buying club is willing to pay to secure the player. If a club doesn’t want a player to leave, you have to offer over the odds to try and tempt them. He’s their player, and the seller sets the selling price. The real price is what he’s wo...
