1 MM has been singling JET out for praise in post-match interviews. Motivating and encouraging the player, or raising his profile, and hence value, pre-transfer window?
2 JET is in his last year of his contract. How many times have we lamented the management's inability to get players to either renew or leave before they can go for free?
3 This has got Financial Fair Play written all over it. The 3 million pound players at the club have all been let go or listed as soon as the season is over. It is a reasonable assumption that they will be amongst the highest wage earners. Mick thinks he can do better, or as well, for less money. And why pay them over the summer, when those wages will contribute To the FFP total, if you aren't going to play them next year? Get them out early and free up some head room.

|The League 2 play off semi Burton v Bradford|
at 13:23 5 May 2013
is absolutely cracking end to end stuff...
Goals, debatable penalty, players cracking heads and playing on in Butcheresque style...
Only a complete fool would bet on the outcome.
Currently Burton 1 Bradford 3 (4-5 on aggregate)in the 65th minute.
|Temporary Forum Name Change?|
at 11:55 29 Apr 2013
For a short while, during the haziest early days of this millennium, Phil and Gav changed the name of this forum to tatd.co.uk "These Are The Days" in celebration of Burley's success. Obviously it didn't end well, and some may reject what I'm going to say lest it "jinx" us (although not any of the scientific rationalists, obviously...)
But in recognition of Mick and Terry's outstanding achievement, and also because it is remarkably similar to TWTD, can I propose an off-season mast head banner of TWWD for Mick's self-deprecating response to the praise for his achievements "That's What We Do"?

Interviewer: "You've conceded a last-minute goal to a player who bit one of your players in the second half, have you ever seen anything like that before?"
Benitez: "What conceding a last-minute goal?" (Pulls "I don't understand your question" face)
|ooh, go on then, just one more Thatcher thread|
at 13:34 12 Apr 2013
Well, seeing as we've had just about every possible permutation of Thatcher thread going, from milk bottles in cemetries to pub-management-riot-contingencies, I've got one that is a bit of an Escher-esque mind-bender.
It has been announced that neither of the President George Bush's can be bothered to attend Margaret Thatcher's funeral.
What do you think of that, TWTD'ers?
(Bearing in mind that Bush snr was Vice-President to Reagan, and Bush jnr is the most senior Republican Party politician, as a two term President)
Left wingers: care to express mock outrage over this insult to a woman you despise, or miss out on a chance for some Republican bashing?
Right wingers: what does this say about the Special Relationship that Thatcher thought we had with the USA? Maybe we'd have been better off following the Foreign Policy of the EU for the past 20 years rather than sending our troops to die for the Republican Party?
