Re: Value of Rovers

The problem with holding clubs up as models is that they're often only a couple of mistakes away from ruin... Last year Southampton were lauded as the ideal and yet this season they've invested badly and not many would say they didn't deserve to go down. Which brings us to the main problem... every ...

Re: Rumours, wishlists and general tomfoolery

Minus wages, bonuses and various fees adds up to the square root of sod all so far... So you'll excuse me if I don't lose any sleep... More importantly (since this was never about selling him in to make a quick buck), we've done alright without him.

Re: General Election

This one seems to be reflecting badly on everyone to be honest... I'm not really clear on why he decided to make this particular event... obviously it is a comfortable organisation for him being more aligned to his personal politics, however it is also in his constituency which makes it a convenient...

Re: Today's random stupidity story...

I think it's already pretty uneconomical to run GFX card rigs... as far as bitcoin goes at least. Although I have literally no idea (haven't had anything you could call a gaming PC in 15 years - currently playing UFO: Enemy Unknown because it is the pinnacle of all games ever)... this seems like a g...

Basically this... https://twitter.com/mehdirhasan/status/978384794311643136 FWIW... I find it surprising but not incredulous that Corbyn didn't get the gravity of the mural when he commented... the response was probably not immediate or strong enough in its condemnation. I find the digging through f...

Re: Today's random stupidity story...

I'm skeptical whether that will ever happen.... obviously no expert, but I would expect the big banks will look to create their own blockchain tech rather than rely on the existing offerings. Yeah - I saw the early year bump... weirdly google chrome has somewhere flagged cryptocurrencies as an inter...

Although they are all tanking and this was a factor... If major mining nations move towards any sort of Blockchain ban it could well be terminal.

Re: Sack race

I've been a big supporter of Clement... generally I don't feel like he go the chance at any of his jobs that he probably deserved given his coaching pedigree. That said... the football at Swansea wasn;t great under his tenure... and it didn't appear in any of his jobs that he was taking the club in ...

Meh... Worth remembering it wasn't too long ago we were thinking that the playoffs were a realistic goal... Now they would be a disappointment.

Given that they only half full the ground on a good day... It really shouldn't be beyond the wit of mankind to put the away fans in a section of the ground somewhere else

Re: blackburn Rovers v Blackpool Sat March 10

I'm curious to know if you still have the designs/plans/blueprints/schematics of Roar in your archives somewhere to share with us. I always liked Roar/Roarina for the record. Afraid not. I did that while working inhouse somewhere and never managed to grab a copy. :( I hope that your original vision...

Re: Where are they now?

I liked samba, but I reckon most would have Hendry and Nelsen ahead of him... Could be others further back... I've heard a rumour that football want invented by sky in 92... But personally I don't believe it.
