so... Tories are F...... W...... then (nt)
at 09:23 11 Dec 2018

52/48 in the country and similar in Parliment

May doesn't want a no-deal situation (any to be honest, whether you're a Brexiteer or not, no-deal is a bad situation to find ourselves in...yes we can go to WTO, but there's already an increasing trade deficit and that won't help)

Anyway, Labour are split on this as much as the Conservatives, May tries to get a deal that doesn't screw us over completely, but it's at odds with the remainers as we may as well stay. The leavers don't like it because of the backstop arrangements (and rightfully so).

It's all just a massive checkmate.

Even if May had a majority government, I don't think we'd be any better off as even within the party it is split.

Utter carnage.

I'm starting to think the second referendum may be actually worth it which flies in the face of the first one, but the information and situation following 2 years of negotiations has revealed an awful lot.

Decisions should always be made when you are better informed of consequences.

Amen

I often say to clients, don't spend a pound to save 20p.

It's different on genuine investment, but let's not pretend a football club is ever going to make money!!!

This frustrates the hell out of me.

IGNORE THE £95M DEBT. IT IS COMPLETELY IRRELEVANT.

You're spot on.

From memory, the situation was different in the beginning, I may be wrong on specifics surrounding ITFC, but I understood Evans was enjoying better tax breaks by charging interest on the loans as they'd never be repayable, also the holding company was in Bermuda, where interest received isn't taxable.

Let's be clear, it doesn't 'make' money anywhere, but certainly eases the tax he would have to pay in profitable group companies that were putting money across to ITFC.

Not sure why it stopped....probably because he was fed up with thick as sh*t fans moaning that he's creating more 'debt' for the club (which I really hope by now that they realise is no issue whatsoever).

What would be an issue is when we start owing external institutions which we don't currently.

Evans may not put in £20m a year which we'd all love, but he has put in £95m.....evidenced by the balance sheet.

He was apparently worth £700m when he took us over.

Thrown 13% of that into a football club as a hobby!

Any NOW TV users on here?
at 12:44 3 Dec 2018

I have NowTV for Movies and now and again i'll buy a pass to watch the football. It's not cheap for a one off, but it's so rare, it makes sense to not pay a monthly and not use it.

I also have Netflix and Amazon Prime.

I don't have an aerial or sat dish anymore either, just those three services on all tvs and with BBCiPlayer and the ITV app, we're good to go.

Would be lovely but unlikely

If (and it’s a big IF) we have some decent results in the 8 games between now and Jan, and we’re back amongst other teams, then maybe, just maybe, we’ll see something extra.

Lots needs to happen though.

Just bough 4 tickets (up in the gods SBR!)

Don't think i've ever been on Friday night in my life...dragging the wife and children along for once, grabbed a nearby hotel and off to London Town in the morning, O2 Nitro Circus and swimming at the Olympic pool Sunday.

Hope ITFC can start the weekend with a bang!



QQ...assuming it's busy and i'm not coming by train, where am I best to park as i'll be a bit tight on time to get there.

Cheers

Vince is unlikely to be able to get in the shape needed for the role, although he got into reasonable condition for Brawl In Cell Block.

Paul Lambert - an early assessment/re-assesment
at 11:45 12 Nov 2018

No, never hounded out MM, I was very reluctant and sad in my assessment that he did eventually have to leave because of the apathy with a number of very vocal fans was beyond repair.

I was very supportive of Hurst. Preferred the cut of Jack Ross' jib, but hey ho, not my decision.

I was also suprised we didn't keep Hurst, but there may well have been more to his departure than we'll ever know. Certainly seems that players are very reluctant (rightfully so) to say anything either.

Lambert has the job of the century on his hands and at last, Town fans are fairly unanimous in their acceptance that "this could be it" and we finally go down, so anything above that would be McCarthy'esque and allow a huge amount of goodwill moving forward.

It's all about the results, but circumstances have now united the fans in a fairly grim assessment of our current predicament. Still...as always, it's not over until the fat lady sings.

Positivity breeds positivity and we as Town fans have nothing to lose by not supporting this team in its current situation. There's no expectation, there's just hope and the shackles of the McCarthy era may finally be off.

In this league, nothing seems impossible.

West Brom are not exactly in prime form, yes they won at the weekend, but that followed three losses and a draw.

Bristol too have lost their last three, they'll be midly concerned about their form.

We face both of these at home.

Forest away in the third of our next three will be the ticky one, but let's not pretend that it's not winnable.

Could we win our next three? Possibly, wouldn't rule it out.

Would that change the look of the table? Probably not a huge amount, 20 points? Bolton, Wigan and Sheff Weds are on worse runs than us and on the same points, every possibility they could carry on losing (as could we of course).

Huge ask for PL to get us to safety, but let's not pretend it's impossible just yet.



ETA

Look what 5 wins on the bounce has done for that lot up the road.

That moment when........... (part 1)
at 09:15 9 Nov 2018

Want to hear something disgusting?

Last week I was at the swimming pool watching the kids (my own obvs...wasn't some sort of disguised pedo reconnaissance) anyway, I deseprately needed to squeeze one out, I was at the point where a few feint rumblings had turned into small intermittent gas leakages that if not attended to quickly, would lead to a widespread collaboration between sets of parents as to who the perpetrator was.

So I dashed to the nearest twalette and it was engaged. Not deterred, I knew there was another relief bowl across the other side of the centre, so off I trot with a little more urgency.

I open the door, darkeness...pefect...nobody in here...the auto lights come on just as i'd fumbled into the only cubical in that toilet.

Like any opportunity where a public toilet is known to be empty, I emptied with great satisfaction, the echoes from the bowl were reminicent of my time atop an active volcano in Lanzarote and I'm grateful nobody was present, because it wasn't one of those that you could 'eek' out in stages with impeccable bowel control, this was a heard of buffalo and ain't nothing stopping that stampede.

Anyway, as we all know, that relief is a great feeling, but that great feeling turned to horror when I realised the paper was empty.

No phone, can't call for help. Remote part of the centre, highly unlikely to be anyone else in here at just gone 6 in the morning and regardless, there's no adjacent cubicle to politely ask for a pass along.

Mild panic sets in, but i'm stuck. I have absolutely no choice, I flushed the toilet....looked at my hand, was grateful my fingernails were impeccably short and reached for a scoop around.

I'm simultaneously flushing the toilet, wincing at my own actions and trying desperately to use the flush as some sort of adhoc biday and in the main, it was quite successful.

Inevitably however, I'm presented with a hand covered in more than I would care to experience.

I spend the next 10 minutes scrubbing my hands, clean...phew.

I then dive out of that toilet, across the corridoor into the disabled toilet to grab some loo paper to dry my wet bum and a further 10 minutes drying my shorts which had suffered greatly from the difficult to direct bidet stream i'd been trying to recreate.

What a nightmare....assess your options carefully for part 2.
