  1. Yesterday
  2. There is no solution to the Irish border issue. you could get a million monkeys hammering away at a million typewriters for an infinite amount of time and although you might get the complete works of Shakespeare, you still wouldn't get a solution to the Irish border issue.
  3. I dunno, it was pretty incredible. I'm just surprised that more people didn't quote it twice and maybe a couple of people 3 times. But I guess that's just a reflection on how far modern Society has slipped since Mary Whitehouse sadly passed away. God bless 'er soul.
  4. Only watched it in parts but seems like it was a really exciting finale, level going into the last day and then it all going down to the wire the way it did. Unreal how things In golf can even get that close, it doesn’t happen very often. The level of ladies golf tends to be higher than its given credit as well, I’m sure it means just as much to them as the Ryder cup does to the blokes! Something about competitions like that that makes them a bit more interesting to even less interested golf watchers, I went to the Ryder cup when it was at gleneagles ironically a few years back, the atmosphere is comparable to a top football match (helped we were In the lead of course!)
  5. Underrated band, National poo Day is a total classic and an a masterclass in brilliant songwriting.
  6. You’ll be better off staying under the table come 3 o’clock with how this season is going...👀
  7. I don't give a feck how Martin did last season or the season before or anything else. I have seen Kieran Dowell lose the ball by being a complete wimp. I've seen him pick the ball up in areas that a creative player is supposed to want the ball and the play like he's a defender strayed too far I've seen Lawrence dribble until he absolutely can't take another step without losing the ball and then 'pass' to somebody who is now marked. I see him do it over and over and over and over until the point I don't see the promise in his dribbling but the utter rubbish in when the ball leaves him. I've seen Waghorn frequently have a first touch worse than Connor Sammon. We are talking 3 or 4 touches in the wrong direction to do what everyone else does in 1 I've seen Jozefzoon... wait, no I haven't because he's hiding. So maybe Chris Martin isn't the Derby Messi. Maybe he's not our saviour. But I just fail to see how having some Bamford up front that can control and pass a ball won't benefit us I mean by all means if you actually believe that Lawrence pretending to be Ronaldo, Waghorn pretending to be Sammon, Jozefzoon pretending to be...there? Dowell pretending to be Ben Davies, Paterson pretending to be Stephen Pearson are all on the verge of something good then fair enough. Let's worry about how many goals Martin isn't scoring when we are at a stage where we actually have forwards who understand the idea of the fecking game. Right now our best attackers are Lowe, Malone, Keogh and Bielik. I mean ffs. Not only do I refuse to rule out Martin but i still think Chris Porter could do a job. I'd take Adam fecking Rooney right now. I just can't cope watching Lawrence beat 30 defenders and then do something utterly poo 99 times in 100. I can't watch Dowell look worse than Paul Green. We are all looking at Duane Holmes now to save our sanity and feed the ball through to Marriott. Unless Waghorn manages to trap the ball it looks like a bunch of guys who are looking for imaginative ways to lose possession and expose that useless DM statue
  8. One of the best bands out of Oz for a long time, love this one.
  9. Wouldn't say its lazy to say we will get battered. They are a hard pressing side that dominates the ball and we give the ball away cheaply. We have crumbled under pressure a couple of times already this season and Leeds will pressure us more than any so far. They have Dallas and Hernandez where we have Malone and Lawrence. I don't know why anybody would have given us no chance in the play offs last season. It's the play offs and it's rarely straight forward for the team who finishes 3rd. But we look weaker than the team that finished last season and they look the same. It's not beyond imagination that we will win but the safe money goes on Leeds ripping through the middle and our left flank. Being brutally honest I didn't think we improved much vs Cardiff. Brentford was a new low. All the other games have been a similar standard. The best performance imo was against Swansea. I have no problem with the idea that we could go on to have a great season. But the performances so far have not indicated that there's anything to 'click' imo. Just a lot of repeated failures. Same players in the same areas doing the same stupid stuff that never looked like a good idea We look like a team that needs new ideas and I hope Cocu can produce an entirely different performance to the kind of football we have played for most match time this season.
  10. Its never too late mi duck im 78 so youve got time if you take notice of your elders
  11. Totally agree but dreading the leads game😁
  12. I'll chuck in DK Metcalf, along with Rodgers and Cohen for Brees and Carson? Now, I can sense you've got an appetite for such a deal?
  13. In the clash of the shitters I'm hoping Le'Veon gets fewer than 6.7 points or its 0-2 for me 💩
  14. The easy and lazy thing to say is "we'll get battered." Where's all this belief and Derby pride gone? Nobody gave us a chance in the play offs, look what happened there. I just think that it's taking time for things to click, but when they do.... We'll know about it. Already seen improvement against Cardiff. This weekend could be the time to get our season up and running, it could the game where things come together. And what a place to do it... COYR 🐏
  15. On what basis do you reckon Cocu didn't want Rooney - I've not seen any interview he's given which suggests that's the case?
  16. I agree with the Farke optimism and patience statement. Cocu needs transfer windows and a proper preseason. However Farke was left to his own devices. He didn’t have an ageing record goal scorer thrust on to him by a pushy interfering owner. I’m with you @Owd miner we’re in the minority pal. Cocu will be looking over his shoulder if by January things haven’t improved during this so called transition season (yet again). Sadly for Cocu when push comes to shove I think Mel will listen more to Rooney than Cocu if the knifes come out post January.
  17. Hey buddy keep trying with never ever ever give up.
  18. I can't really add much thats not already been said. Good luck and stay strong. In my more optimistic moments I see an update on here an think it must be good news for you, I hope one day I'm right.
  19. Zlatan is still good enough to play top level football becuase of him being so tall and strong so not needing pace as much, where as Rooney is a player who scored quite a few goals based off raw pace and now he doesn't have it so isn't a top goal scorer anymore. I still think he will be a very good signing as a creative player as he is still a very good passer, and we will have a good set piece taker as all our set pieces at the moment our awful. He can also put in tackles and will add some strength to a light weight team, him Holmes and Bielik should be a very good midfield if Cocu finally comes to his senses and doesn't play Huddlestone.
  20. When a firm of accountants audit a Company they sign off that the records and accounts are reasonable and correct which will include the value of assets. If then an asset is sold at a higher value to conveniently create a profit to avoid serious FFP sanction then it is bound to look odd and questions asked. There is also the issue that selling the ground is a bit 'desperate' and is a one time deal (you cant sell your biggest asset twice) and I am sure the EFL will be keen to see that the underlying financial model is sound. After all that is what 'sustainability' should be about. The EFL's motives are supposed to be to ensure the long term viability of the club for us fans. Sadly it ends up being a thing that just annoys us all. I will try and check the info re the Veladrome and the land behind it but I do understand that there is a plan for a significant development of that area. If there is it will enhance the stadium value a lot.
  21. At the start of the season quite a few fans were giving it the ‘I don’t mind a season of transition as long as we’re trying to bring through some youth players and improving as the season goes on’ and you just know that they’re the same ones now complaining that we’re not flying at the top of the division.
  22. Perfect example of a shift to the right 👍
  23. No. I meant Ergo. Just as spelt
  24. "There were also reports of fans without tickets walking back in through the fire exits as paying punters made their way back in." ...reports that existed only in the heads of rubbish journalists looking for an angle, utter tripe
