Just been released by Sunderland. Decent experience at RB

Realistic signing or more likely to sign for a champ club?

Speeding and wrist slapping
at 08:27 9 Jun 2019

How accurate are those speed guns?

We have a couple of those signs that show what speed you’re doing in our village and I regularly drive past them doing 22-25mph (due to a build up of traffic / parked cars) and it often flashes up to tell me I’m doing 37-42mph..

Good game. Shame it feels like a pre season friendly.

Hope Uefa are happy with this dead atmosphere. What an advertisement for the competition.

And one of their options has signed for another club already!

Ebanks-landell to Shrewsbury.

But the last two years Ferrari have had a car capable of beating Mercedes. The difference is that Mercedes have had Lewis Hamilton and solid team of engineers/mechanics.

The only reason Ferrari didn’t wan it last year was because Sebastian Vettel couldn’t cope with the pressure from Hamilton.

Admittedly this year Ferrari have been way off it, but that’s not Mercedes fault for being too good.

As others have said, if it’s that boring, why are you watching/commenting on it?

It’ll probably be the Adidas Tabela 18 template I’d imagine judging by the white trim on the sleeves and collar.

Lack of opportunity for ex black players
at 15:17 20 May 2019

Don’t think I ever said white ex players don’t get opportunities, I just think thinks need to be looked at with the full facts.

Name me some ex BAME players who want to become managers who haven’t been given opportunities?

Solskjaer had done a good job at Molde prior to his spell at Cardiff and then was only brought in on a temp basis at Utd before rejuvenating them and deservedly getting it full time.

Keane is an odd one, a gamble that paid off for Sunderland.

Neville just happened to know the owner of Valencia which is why he got the job.

And as mentioned by others, lampard / Gerrard were exceptional players (better than Campbell in my eyes) and got their jobs based on reputation.

Bruce / Hughes I don’t know.

Lack of opportunity for ex black players
at 14:42 20 May 2019

I think there’s two issues here.

Firstly it’s difficult to compare current BAME players to BAME as it takes time to progress into management. Therefore I think you need to compare the number of BAME players 10-15years ago to the number on BAME managers now to see if there’s an issue.

Secondly you need to look at the amount of BAME players who have genuinely wanted to and tried to go down the coaching / managing route. There’s a difference between being asked in an interview if you want to become a manager, and actually dedicating your life to become one.

Lack of opportunity for ex black players

https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/48217557

Always find this an interesting topic and there’s couple of points that stick out to me.

Heskey has been put off applying for jobs due to the lack of opportunity, but how do you know there’s a lack of opportunity if you haven’t been applying?

Secondly she mentions Campbell being an ex England international having to manage Macclesfield. Why isn’t he being offered a big job, why not the England managers job?

I’m not saying that there aren’t a lack of opportunities and perhaps there is some discrimination (i guess we’ll never know) but it always seems when these players comment on this, they imply as if they should walk straight into a premier league job without proving themselves further down the ladder. Think it was Paul Ince before who mentioned something along these lines.

A12 Driving annoyances #34345565
at 13:34 16 May 2019

He’s already said it’s a fair point to annoy you if that person in the outside one is doing 65mph.

But you could have an Audi and a Ford driving together, both speedos showing the same speed (70mph) but one vehicle could actually be doing 70mph and the other could be doing anything as low as 60mph, as car manufacturers admit their speedos won’t be 100% accurate.

So whilst he thinks he’s doing 70mph and the person behind him shouldn’t break the law by going quicker than him, he could be doing 65mph and the person behind wants to legally overtake at 70mph.

Aside from that, it’s not hard to pull over to let someone past.

“Prevents others from breaking the law”...

You do realise your speedo probably isn’t correct and most cars speedos vary by 10-15%?

So whilst you think you’re being all big and mighty ‘policing the roads’, thinking if there were more drivers like you the roads would be safer, you’re probably doing more like 65 and breaking the law yourself by not using the OVERTAKING lane correctly.

You’re probably also a contributing factor in causing other people’s road rage due your misuse of the overtaking lane.

HELP - season ticket difficulties

Try ringing up and asking to move, they should be able to do it without the additional cost.

We moved seats a couple of years ago and didn’t get charged.

Name the players you would definitely start with next season
at 09:36 23 Apr 2019

I can see our front 6 being:

Bishop Skuse Judge

Lankester Keane(if he signs) Edwards

Think that would have a nice balance to it. Just need the defence sorting out.

Season Ticket Question
at 12:11 17 Apr 2019

I imagine they wouldn’t announce the further reductions until after the deadline so by that point you’ll know whether it’s 10%, 15% or 20% off the £181.

Rather than being reduced by 10% then reduced by a further 5% of the new discounted price.

But Ferrari had the quicker car last year and still didn’t win.

And it’s like anything, teams with the most money tend to win. A bit like football..
