Make sure you click on the thread to read it all. It's a juggernaut of corruption, incompetence and fantasy frankly.

Arsenal making staff redunant
at 15:20 5 Aug 2020



This is perhaps the most blunt and unsympathetic reading I saw, but there will be some fascinating financial gymnastics right down the game this summer won't there?

We're seeing Wigan, Derby and Wednesday not only under the scope but clubs like Charlton potentially suffer even more revenue loss due to them too. Likewise a couple of Div 3 accounts picked up Watson's piece about clubs voting to end the season then doing deals. It didn't go down well.

I think there will be a divide amongst fans of different clubs defending those votes and subsequent decisions to spend or not won't there?

More scandalous abuse of public money

This may not mean much to you outside of the North West if you don't know all of these areas, but Cheadle is incredibly wealthy. It's one of the places you'd see the Cheshire Housewife set and sports cars parked up etc.

Given Stockport alone has massive holes of deprivation in it let alone the other areas I'm pretty staggered how blatant this looks.

Wilfred Zaha tweet
at 15:16 12 Jul 2020

I’ll Remove it actually given it’s content, but he’s made it public and rightly received nothing but backing from the public.

However, Ian Wright makes this valid point too.



It isn’t enough to call it out or just say they’re not one of us is it? I get why people do it, and it’s not exactly misguided but these people are amongst us all not just in a football context. We don’t instinctively reject their Britishness or class do we? It seems the reaction to BLM from threatened little boys is inevitable and this will likely lead to a conviction judging by tweets from West Mids Police, but it does make you wonder what the next steps are for football.

At times the homophobia, racism etc makes me think the game is just backward and will always be so but that isn’t true either. This is a social media/education/acceptance problem that combines to put people like Zaha in this position of waking up to abuse because of their profile and identity. When people can hide behind tribalism and keyboards they’re always going to resort to this lowest denominator type of stuff aren’t they?

Question for tradespeople
at 10:17 10 Jul 2020

Had a quote for some work. Decided to go with them. That’s great they say, we can do X date, can we have £150 up front by bank transfer?

Agreed all that asked for an invoice etc. Oh btw the rest will be due in cash on completion. The boss said he told you all this on the day.

The boss wasn’t the greatest talker but never mentioned this, and when I queried it and insisted on paying by transfer was told that they’d charge me VAT on top so it’d go up. These guys have excellent reviews and loads of them on multiple sites, but that’s a massive red flag right?

Ian Evatt to Bolton - has this been missed today?
at 18:39 1 Jul 2020

Very interesting appointment for both that. Got himself a nice little rep based on the playing style and success at Barrow and gets them up to League 2.

Wonder if it's the sort of move Hurst was meant to be for us or not? Only 38 too so has time on his side and maybe thought the problems at Bolton are worth putting up with.

https://www.theguardian.com/education/2020/jun/30/headteachers-out-of-pocket-and

That anyone can fall through the cracks in a country as rich as ours is bad enough, but to see headteachers put in this position makes me angry.

No one expects perfection in times like these, but to see yet more evidence of leaving it up to the little people and not joining up the response in any way whatsoever.

We're going to be playing against Paul Anderson next season aren't we?
at 10:07 30 Jun 2020

Is that the measure of how far we've fallen?

No disrespect to him, because he seemed like a lovely bloke when he was here and a decent player, but he was yet another who probably had his peak with us before falling away. To think he's come back from serious injury and now promoted to the same level as us..... frightening.

You'll have to log in to read the whole thing, but it's another example of vacuous soundbites, disrespectful braying which is ironic given what he's suggesting kids need to do.

The bloke is utterly incompetent and merely parroting tough sounding nonsense. This sounds like more positioning unions and by proxy any dissenting teachers as the problem, not this incompetent government.

I guess education hasn't been on the agenda enough lately to maintain this negative spin.

Potential Free Signings?
at 10:45 26 Jun 2020

I know we have far too many players in the squad and somehow not enough for certain positions but has anyone seen potential signings they think Lambert could/should get?

Jordan Williams was released by Rochdale I see. Good education at Liverpool and can play as a DM or more recently a CB. Thought he played well against us at their place too and is big physical presence. At 25 he might be the right age too if we are going to be bouncing around this league and the Championship until we find another decent manager.

George Tanner was being talked about on twitter last night and was apparently decent at Morecambe on loan as an attacking left back. I can't imagine we are going to find a left back who has the goals in him that Garbutt had, but two attacking full backs and the youths we have to play out wide might rapidly improve our effectiveness going forward.

Anyone got any decent shouts they fancy to be the right player for the right wages?
