    Twitter is the worst for people jumping on the RIP bandwagon for attention, literally nothing confirmed anywhere and people are making memorial videos. I suppose likes are more important than truth.

    He made Danny Graham unable to hit a barn door then he left and scored for fun for the next few years of his career. Magical times.

    I suspect you are 1000000% wrong. 
    If only we'd done a fraction of what we're going to do anyway, just think what the NHS could look like today? Think how many people would have not unnecessarily died, or died with a shred of dignity? How much better would the NHS be able to respond to Coronavirus if we'd already started funding it years ago instead of crippling it financially?

    What a load of tripe, it was Tory MPs including the current PM that voted it down. Do you even understand how parliamentary majorities work?

    You do know that website's editor in chief is one Matthew Elliott, founder of the Taxpayers Alliance, founder of NotoAV, and of Vote Leave?
    And said organisation has raised many eyebrows by being granted a press pass by Cummings that gives them full access, despite being "campaigners masquerading as journalists "?
    This is not red top bilge. This is not reporting at all.

    You mean the team sat 5th in the Premier League on a 10 match unbeaten streak, keeping clean sheets in 8 of them matches? Yeah it really was a simple opportunity and I reckon if he played Curtis Davies we would probably have walked it.
    Have you ever thought that the negativity coming from fans may affect the players?
    We never looked like taking the opportunity? What about when Sibleys shot went just wide or Rooney had his free kick saved in the bottom corner? If we had taken the lead who knows what may have happened? Hey even you might have got behind the team at that point, rather than sitting there waiting to tell everyone Cocu's team selection was wrong?

    Cocu inherited a bad situation, our best players were loans and he got no real pre-season. Before the booze up we were sitting just outside the playoffs which wasn't bad considering the squad. For me Cocu is a gradual build kind of guy which shows why he was more of a success at PSV than Fenerbahce where instant success is expected, he isn't the kind of manager that is about instant results but more a long term culture (as per Mel's vision). I think a lot of people's frustration this season is fuelled party by Florest going better but lets be honest they are overachieving and it's similar to a Billy Davies organised knicking results type game. That kind of thing has unfortunately not been successful or sustainable for us, changing managers and players that often is expensive and disruptive.
    Take in to account other factors such as tighter finances than previous managers, Bielik out for the season and our best CB retiring himself, Shinnie was getting going before he got injured also. He's managed to bring back players people had written off and got them to perform in the absence of being able to shape his own squad. For me he's proved to be adaptable and handled the disruption well. We've already seen the calibre of player he wants to sign in te Wierik and I think next season we'll be up there challenging.
    If it wasn't for the away form we'd be top 6 easily this season but you can understand why it's taken a while to get the performances, Cocu has expressed he wants the same philosophy home & away which requires the confidence/belief to pull it off. I hope we stick with him and let him keep developing the club, he's been brilliant bringing the youth through giving them a taste then managing their way in to the first team.
    Keep the faith.

    Can't see it being in the UK to be honest, despite the numbers the fights in the states or Saudi just pay way more. Be a real shame if it isn't here but money talks.
    Pulev will be a straight forward KO, stands up straight and just pushes a jab right hand clinch over and over. Easy for AJ to counter.

    Anyone see the Hearn interview with IFL? Sound like the convos he's had with Fury's team everyone has a good idea of any terms if they could make the fight. Said they were working on a 60/40 split negotiating the fight the first time before Fury got the ESPN 10 fight deal.
    Lets face it, AJ vs Fury will be the biggest fight in Britain ever and maybe in the world, the build up and media coverage would be unprecedented. If these promoters have any sense they'll make this fight and raise the profile of the sport. I saw a piece with Max Kellerman where he said Fury can say no to the rematch? I don't think that is the case.

    Wilder has no names on his resume, his biggest win is Ortiz who ranks Dave Allen up there for his biggest wins. C level skills with A+ power, I'm glad Fury pulled it off and I was a fool to doubt the Kronk style in this rematch. For interest I went back to see how AJ dealt with the Kronk style against Wlad, AJ vs Fury will be a great close fight, anyone that thinks AJ will be worried needs to go back and watch. They've sparred before so he is no stranger.
    Did anyone see the Fury's mouthpiece? Nigerian flag with Nigeria written on it, was a gift from AJ.

    Watching it live Allen seemed to do very little first 2 rounds then go up 4 gears in the third, at the end of R2 he shouts out to someone outside of the ring. Darch was talking as Allen was landing the final blows, couple that with the suspect betting action... It could all be coincidence of course but it doesn't look good.
