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 ...

Re: Carabao Cup: Carlisle v Blackburn Rovers, Tue, 14 August 2018, KO 19:45

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...

Re: Rumours, wishlists and general tomfoolery

In your opinion... and no doubt the QPR fan thinks his opinion is perfectly reasonable from his perspective too. :roll: We'd be making similar comments to them if they were offering less than half our valuation for one of our players... :idea: Nowhere ever has anyone said we should accept an offer b...

Re: Rumours, wishlists and general tomfoolery

The general opinion on here back in January was that it would take much, much more than the £4m Cardiff were rumoured to have offered for Dack to prise him away. Don't see why that would have changed? Without taking too much for granted from the speculation, if a handful of clubs have been told they...

Re: Rumours, wishlists and general tomfoolery

I wasn't having a go at anyone... :shrug: Four different Championship clubs have independently lodged interest in Freeman below £5m, given the scouting networks and general transfer market workings across clubs it suggests that that is a realistic valuation of the player. He had a good season last ...

Re: Rumours, wishlists and general tomfoolery

Very odd to say our bid is laughable given that there has been previous interest from WBA, Middlesbrough and Sheff Utd at £3m and we've gone a £1m further. Maybe they laughed even more at those other bids? Can't really have a go at fans of other clubs overrating their players, many of us do just th...

Re: 2018/19 Season

Frankly, who gives a flying fuck what number anyone gets? It's only a marketing ploy so that clubs can charge parents even more when selling replica shirts. :yeahright:
