|McGoldrick was open to staying?|
at 10:41 19 Mar 2019
Does anyone believe this news story? I'm not sure it was as simple as that as I think it was widely accepted view that McG was looking at his options in the summer.
(not a dig) Mick even mentioned it a couple of times so I expect that it was ME's expectation that McG wasn't interested and therefore unwilling to sign a new deal if he was offered one.
Overall another sorry chapter in a series of poor management and leadership from the very top, but not sure this one falls completely at Hurst's door, as ME (if anyone) dropped the ball if these quotes are to be believed
|Favourite Song Lyrics?|
at 09:34 6 Mar 2019
I must admit I find catchy songs with no lyrical depth incredibly frustrating and quick to become boring. What I do love is good storytelling lyrical content that makes you think, laugh, smile, cry, reminisce etc. and a personal favorite that seems apt in the current climate is this
The Daily Mail says "the enemy's among us
Taking our women and taking our jobs"
All reasonable thought is being drowned out
By the non-stop baying, baying, baying for blood
Bloc Party: Hunting for Witches.
Any other favourite lyrics that stick out to anyone?
|Unsavory twist in the Sala tragedy.. |
at 15:47 6 Feb 2019
Nantes have 'demanded' payment for the player. Cardiff have apparently withheld the first scheduled payment until they are satisfied with the documentation.
I really don't like the wording of it all, but I would have assumed insurance would have been in place to ensure that most of the sum would be covered.

Not seen anything on here commenting on the line up, so thought I'd add it for people to have a grumble about.. (nice distraction from grumbling about football & Brexit)
When I saw Snow Patrol I did wonder whether I'd been transported back to 2009 as I'm not sure they would be a big pull anymore..
I've not been in years, but if they still do day tickets I might be tempted once the line up becomes clearer as to who's on day by day etc.

Given the renewed interest in Collins, I was intrigued by who was still out of contract, so had a look. Below are a few that have Championship experience and would possibly be of interest. Though once again wage demands will undoubtedly be too high for us to seriously consider any of them, but interesting to see who is out there still.
Rohan Ince (Weren't we linked with him last January?)
|Reykjavík (and Iceland in General)|
at 09:34 14 Nov 2018
Planning a visit in December and know there are some incredibly well traveled folk on here.. I've found a couple of relatively inexpensive airbnb's but if anyone has any recommendations of areas to stay (in Reykjavik), places to eat, things to see/avoid etc. then that would be greatly appreciated
at 15:25 1 Nov 2018
Or Southern Portugal in general.. I'm looking for some travel advice from the resident Judith Chalmers on this board..
I'm looking at a long weekend in December and found some disgustingly cheap flights to Faro.. Is it worth staying there for couple of days as a city break or move somewhere else along the south coast?
Any recommendations would be welcome

Has anyone else taken a surprising interest in what is going on over the pond?
I would not consider myself very politically minded and steer clear of most (if not all) politics based threads on here.. But I've become genuinely interested in what is going on in the US and the possible outcomes that could happen in the next few weeks.
This story in Vermont is quite interesting for those who have a passing interest: https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-us-canada-45922719
A Republican who passed stricter gun controls last year and has called on greater mental health support (taking a gentle swipe at Trump in his speech when passing the bills).. He has been panned by Republican voters but is running to be re elected against an openly transgender Democratic candidate.
|Brentford appoint new Manager|
at 10:09 17 Oct 2018
and they have promoted from within the club
One of Smith's 2 assistant managers followed him to Villa while the other (Thomas Frank) has been promoted to the role of Head Coach
Will be very interesting to see what happens with both Brentford and Villa as it seems that Brentford are confident in their opinion that Frank was a key reason for Brentford's success over the past couple of years

Following on from the Women's Football thread t'other day, BBC sport have added a video of all 28 (Twenty Eight) goals in a 28-0 win for Benfica Women as they made their debut in the league
I reckon those of us with Grandmothers would expect them to do a better job than their keeper (who I don't think dived to make a save all game)

What are peoples thoughts on the news today of Colin Kaepernick (among others) being used as the face of their new campaign.
Personally I really like/respect the bloke & what he's doing. Though it seems that the backlash in the states has happened already..
I think it's great of them to use Black athletes and Inspirational quotes in the current climate. My absolute favourite is Shaquem Griffin, that guy is a real inspiration.

Is anyone else getting some rather odd pop up ads when on this site?
I am getting used to the silk boxers and ihavans cigar ads.. plus some others that I've been searching recently (Mobile phones, holidays etc.)
but i'm getting an increasing number of attractive women popping up from sites such as 'Ukrainian Charm' & 'Asian Charm' and something about beautiful Latina's etc. with some suggestive titles.
To quickly dispel any thoughts of shenanigans, this is on my work laptop which has never been used for anything unsavory. They filter it to stop anyone from accessing social media, ticket sites, shopping, gambling sites etc.. It sometimes even blocks this site so nothing to do with previous browser history.
Is anyone else seeing these ads? I'm also getting some from Boohoo and Missguided (among others) which I wouldn't pen as being regular retailers the users on here find themselves on...
|Horses & Betting etc.|
at 15:38 24 Aug 2018
I'm making a rare trip to the ponies this weekend and have noticed various threads on betting on here in the past so wanted to check if anyone had any tips for York tomorrow? Failing that which papers are the best to peruse for info?
at 11:35 10 Aug 2018
England are on it again this morning... Or should that be Anderson is on it?
Unbelievable start with India only registering their first runs in the 4th over after Anderson took a wicket with 5 ball of the day.

That is the number of goals that we need to replace this season with the players we have offloaded this summer (Our 5 Leading goalscorers from last season!)
Waghorn - 16
Garner - 10
McGoldrick - 8
Celina - 8
Connolly - 4
I've been impressed by the transfer activity this summer, but looking at it from a purely numbers perspective, or without bias.. it looks like we are in for a struggle. Personally I don't see it like that myself, but I've seen plenty of people make those sort of comments about other clubs (Norwich an example with Maddison & Murphy leaving)
For what it's worth I think we'll see a lot more goalscorers this season with goals being shared around a lot more than they have in years. Hopefully culminating in more than the 57 we got last season.

Sky Sports reporting that he is about to sign on a season long loan for Wigan.
Will be interesting to see 1) What position they plan of playing him, and 2) How he gets on as he was terrific for us in spells last season and decent the rest of the time. Would be a useful addition to most sides in this league.

|Team for Saturday|
at 10:23 12 Jul 2018
Will I am sure look completely different to the one we saw last night. And I can agree that it probably should.
The likes of Henderson, Kane, Lingard, Sterling & Trippier have completely emptied the tank this tournament.. and Henderson in particular has had a long hard slog of a season, with his hoped being dashed late in the day on 2 separate occasions
I am sure that Gareth and his team will assess them on their psychological state in the next couple of days and decide on who he thinks is ready for one more battle and who is too emotionally raw after last night. After all there is very little time between the matches and physically there will be some tired legs, but perhaps most importantly there will be fried minds that are still coming to terms with the world cup dream coming to an end
