Anyone else hope Rooney picks up an injury... by Marshalls_Mullet 15 Feb 10:27
...that keeps him out of the Euros? (nothing serious, just enough to keep him out for 6 weeks or so prior to the tournament!).

Don't get me wrong, I dont dislike Rooney, and he puts the effort in. BUT the clamor to include him from the media and sponsors etc, always hamstrings our team. The whole formation and team selection gets hamstrung by the question of 'how do we best fit Rooney in'. This wont change with him as captain, and we'll suffer another tournament of directionless matches.

His best position would be coming off the bench, but that's never going to happen.

2 tournament goals in the last 10 years, does not suggest that a team built around Rooney works. I'd much rather see Kane, Vardy and Alli in the forward line up.

Phone and Broadband providers
at 15:55 26 Nov 2015

Which phone and broadband providers do most people use?

I have Virgin TV, broadband and phone line, and its just not value for money. Probably going to get rid of all the TV element, but Virgin seem extortionate for phone and broadband.

genuine question...
at 13:34 15 Nov 2015

...we read that c.450 people h returned to the UK having been radicalised in Syria.

If we know these people have been to Syria, why are they allowed back into the country? And why can't they be locked up?

I guess some people do go over for humanitarian reasons, but surely people can be told that if you go over to Syria and can't prove humanitarian reasons... then you won't be allowed back?

Two underperforming managers lose their jobs...

I don't think its healthy for Troy Townsend to bring race into it.

I'm not so sure Powell deserved the sack, but Ramsey was certainly massively underperforming (sacked by a BME football director and owner incidentally).

I've no problem with speed cameras, or having the cameras operating to enforce 70 mph limits, but to have no tolerance is not acceptable.

Those tolerances are partly there to allow for differences in calibration (ie between a cars speedo and the speed camera), as well as the fact that a motorist cant spend 100% of their times looking at the speedo.

JT and KP...

...sportsmen a little touchy these days. No one is allowed an opinion unless they are within the top 1% of elite sportsmen.

OK, fair enough then, just so long as they realise that they cant have an opinion on anything other than football or cricket.

...disrespecting 99% of professional footballers and all fans.

I'm not a big fan of savage, but I think JT was a bit misguided with his comments.

His manager was a poor player... doesn't mean he couldn't judge a player.

Supporter Group Club Ownership
at 13:13 2 Nov 2015

So the Leeds fans are hoping to buy the club. I like the idea in theory, but hers a genuine question;

- When most Champ clubs rely on a benefactor / owner to subsidise the club to the tune of millions per season. How would this work under fan ownership?

Sad to see him become such a bitter, broken man.

We keep hearing....
at 22:19 20 Oct 2015

....the problems are down to trying to change the style of play.

....can we go back to doing what it takes to score and win?

Let's face facts, we can't have Mick AND good football. But last season we had Mick AND winning football.

I think Mick has done a great job of steadying the ship, but we'll never play attractive football under him.

Im not calling for him to be sacked, but I'd like to see him stay in place until the end of the season (doing whatever it takes to win) then handing over a well positioned side to a more progressive manager.
