  1. Brexit or Eurin?

    You keep insuintating I think he's a fascist. Even though straight after I said "I don't think you're a fascist if you read the Daily Mail." It's in black and white, 4 pages back. I did find someone else's post amusing. That's not really the same as calling someone a fascist. But that wouldn't fit the narrative of your argument would it?
  2. Brexit or Eurin?

    Ok – out of curiosity do you get this defensive when Angry calls people commies? Just wondering if it's the same for everyone or one rule for Angry, another for me?
  3. Brexit or Eurin?

    Ok, now who's on the windup? Angry said it was infantile to use nicknames to describe the Daily Mail. By doing so he is defending it, i.e. he's being defensive about the name calling. Key word: defensive. Granted he's not defending it's headlines (I never said he was). Or the fact he might read it (I never said he did). What I said was this: That it's sad someone was defending the Daily Mail. That statement extends to being defensive about the nicknames it has earned through it's headlines. So this point you keep making about "no one defending the Daily Mail". Simply not true.
  4. Brexit or Eurin?

    Fair enough. Apologies for misunderstanding your stance. The point I'm making is simply that - in the Mail's case - it's not hard to see why people resort to the name-calling. And it's bizarre to accuse people of being infantile, when we've ALL said / written similar stuff. Some in this very thread.
  5. Brexit or Eurin?

    Well now we're just heading into a game of opinions aren't we? Fair enough you and Angry don't find it funny. For the record, I'm not saying it's "LOL-what-a-witty-nickname" funny. I'm saying people use it because it feels good to belittle something you oppose. It's no less "infantile" than some of the names being bandied around for Corbyn and Labour voters.
  6. Brexit or Eurin?

    I think people change the name because humour is an excellent way of coping with the existence of what is an altogether vile publication.
  7. Brexit or Eurin?

    I don't think you're a fascist if you read the Daily Mail. I do think it reflects on your character though.
  8. Brexit or Eurin?

    Can't actually believe I'm reading comments defending The Daily Mail. Sad.
  9. This Kris Commons Interview

    Is it though? It was public knowledge he had severe budget restraints to work under. In fact it's usually the thing he get's praised for most – bringing the wage bill down (while keeping us up). I'd say it's standard negotiation practice. Go in low. Wait for the counter-offer. Plus, convincing the better players signed by Jewel on silly wages to take a cut was one of the few strategies he had.
  10. Billy Davies

    Really interesting interview. Whatever your thoughts about his polarising behaviour, he's still a very compelling character. Like a villain from a Derby soap opera. Personally I feel fairly indifferent to him. He was (and probably still is) an excellent championship manager, but I do believe he has reaped what he sowed with his attitude at Derby and (subsequently) Forest. In many ways, he reminds me of my old boss. She always talked a very (very) good game – knew exactly what to say in meetings to get what she wanted from you. Ultimately, as time went on you began to realise it was very much about what she wanted and rarely what you wanted. She was only really in it for herself. In fact, in my last few meetings with her, my BS detector was so overworked it was in danger of burn out! I see shades of it in Billy D during his media appearances. And that style of management can be very good for getting your underlings to perform. But I imagine older, more senior members of staff (especially at board level) would get wise to it very quickly. And would ultimately find it manipulative, selfish and unpleasant to deal with.
  11. Millennial Railcard

    Probably a knee jerk reaction to a bunch of factors: The Corbyn threat of re-nationalisation, the general dogshite standard of the service and the prohibitive cost going up and up every year.
  12. Thoughts on Lawrence so far

    Exactly. Lawrence is the new Vydra. And Vydra has (eventually) come good.
  13. SBW #9: Leeds and Norwich

    Worth the price of entry alone.
  14. Sexual Harassment

    While I think it's right that serial sleazebags should be named and shamed, it's also 100% opened the floodgates for male-bashing. An ex-colleague on Twitter is deffo using it as an excuse for a personal crusade - her commentary essentially boils down to "all men are vile because I read on the news this one guy did a bad thing once".
  15. QPR FFP Fine

    The keepers were signed by Hughes. Not that I wouldn't put it past Redknapp to make equally daft decisions.
