Re: Rumours, wishlists and general tomfoolery

I think you forget, or choose to ignore, how appalling the 10 people in front of him have been. If you expect a keeper to make up for the failings of the other 10 players at all times, you're going to be disappointed an awful lot. No, I remember when he had a decent 10 in front of him, an attacking...

Re: Rumours, wishlists and general tomfoolery

I think it's too easy to expect a keeper to make up for the failings of the players in front of him (all 10 of them). But that in essence is his job. Not much point in having a goalie who concedes every time one of his teammates screws up. I don't expect goalies to be infallible but they do need to...

Re: Mahoney.

That's quite the whoppper of a first post. Welcome! But yes, Mahoney was mismanaged the last season. Mowbray knew the importance of keeping him on, so he played him as much as he could within trying to fight off relegation. Unfortunate though that Mahoney couldn't see the vision Mowbray had in mind...

Re: Mahoney.

They were talking contract with him last year so not like it hasn't been on the table. Since when has what actually happened ever mattered? The kid didn't see his future at Rovers, which is sad since he's a fan, but understandable since the guys making promises to him are unlikely to be around long...

Re: Cycling

Looks like he was behaving like a typical cylclist to me, swerving all over the road with no consideration for anyone behind him... :yeahright:

Is Geraint Thomas a legitimate contender or will Froome become Sky's lead man later in the race?

Re: General Election

It's all hypocrisy. I'm sure the noises would be different if it was, say, Corbyn offering the SNP a deal to form a government. The real complaint is as Theo said somewhere above, the DUP would typically side with the Tories anyway. The rest just seems to be people objecting to democracy again becau...

Re: General Election

You mean to say that you don't think patronising people and branding them as racist is working? :D It seems politics from all sides at the moment is about saying what they think will impress people and hoping enough are too stupid not to spot the problems.

Surely even Venky's owned Blackburn Rovers cannot fail at this level.
That needs saving for this time next year...
