Is it hard? Any tips?

I'm 6'3 which I think will be an advantage in some ways due to better reach.

Football Manager work permit question (FAO Joe/PK/anyone)
at 16:09 13 Apr 2019

Surprisingly I can't find a definitive answer about this online so hopefully one of the board's resident FM experts can assist.

I'm playing as Ipswich (on FM 2018) and I've agreed to sign a 23-year-old Russian keeper from Wolfsburg for £11.5m, on a £75k a week contract. The scout report said a work permit would likely be granted upon appeal.

The initial work permit application was rejected as he hasn't played in enough recent fixtures for Russia (6 caps overall) and I got the usual 'without a WP player won't be able to play and would need to be loaned to a feeder club where he can gain a WP' message.

Appealed and he has now been granted a conditional UK work permit.

Does this mean that if I complete the transfer he will be able to play at least for the duration of his contract? I made the mistake of signing someone after an initial rejection in the past and he still can't get a WP, so I don't want to make the same mistake again.

This really pisses me off and shows a complete lack of regard for anyone else.

Only today I saw someone leave the men's without washing their hands. I've even seen someone come out of the cubicle at the gym and then go out and start touching the equipment without washing them.

Some people are grim f*ckers.

Countries represented by ITFC players
at 20:40 17 Jan 2019

I thought this would be a fun exercise. Let's start by picking a country beginning with the same letter as your first name and naming a player from that country who has played for Town (loans are fine and they don't have to have been capped as we'll probably struggle anyway for most of them). If your first name isn't possible then use your middle name, then surname if you still can't name anyone.

I've started with Jamaica and I'll edit my original post some time tomorrow to update the list with the responses. How many countries have been represented in a Town shirt?

It's my birthday today
at 20:05 8 Jan 2019

I was born in 1992, and I was talking earlier to my dad about how I feel lucky to have some (albeit distant) memories of the 2000/01 season, which was the first season that I had a season ticket at PR.

Things like Wilnis bombing on the overlap to score against Man Utd, and Armstrong's header against Inter Milan the next season.

It's sh1t now and realistically we will never see the likes of that again will we?

I feel sorry for those younger than myself who don't at least have memories of the most recent good times.

Where would you say is the best place to park to go into the town centre on a Saturday (from the south side of town)? Any roads you can park on for free even?

Gatwick is full before anyone suggests.

Thanks.
