  1. How have you never seen Thomas the Tank Engine??? It’s top tier kids tv, the gold standard, don’t let the fact it’s trains put you off
  2. Narrator of Thomas the Tank Engine has died today 😢
  3. As far as I’m aware there were no issues with the site yesterday, I dropped in throughout and received no other reports with people struggling to get on
  4. Look what happens soon as you mention you need a calculator @i-Ram
  5. Why do I feel like grim things is targeting me? That Nigel Clough round can do one.
  6. It’s the best time to drink, no lawnmowers, screaming kids or dodgy music
  7. Press reader refresh icon or turn it off, close the sign up box and put reader mode back on. Does go flakey at times but does work.
  8. Nothing has been announced yet at all, in a recent interview with Mel and Stephen Pearce they just asked for fans patience whilst they figure it out
  9. If you had an iPhone you could switch to reader view and read the full article 😉
  10. “Sky subscribers in the UK will be able to activate the Premier Sports channel for free throughout June. From July, they will be charged a monthly fee of £5.99.“
  11. Just agree with me, saves time as you’ll get there in the end.
  12. I’m back this week, Leanne won’t be as she’s at work
  13. I agree on the Sky thing, whilst I understand they want the most relevant game at the time for their money, the notice they give before rescheduling games is ridiculous. Not sure what the answer is, leaving the game at 3pm on Saturday and still screening it wouldn’t appeal to either Sky or the clubs as it would effect viewers and attendances at the same time. Needs to be right up there on the agenda though as clubs outside the PL rely on ticket revenue so much, pissing fans off moving games around will only see more get frustrated and either walk away from the game or pick and choose games over buying season tickets
  14. Of course I have, but that’s not claiming football was invented in 1992, just polls for games/goals during the history of the competition. If you’re down the pub for the weekly quiz and they have a round on 90s Music, would you shout up, oi, music wasn’t invented in the 90s you know? As I said earlier, for some the Premier League is all they have known, that is what they were born into. It’s not arrogance, pigheadedness or any other insult you want to throw at them, it’s just that is all they know. Theres a real hatred for Sky Sports and football today from the older generation that want to remind us how great football was before they got involved, what I don’t understand is if it’s so bad now, why follow the game still? Or even join forums, social media and hold conversations with those fans that wind you up. Sky get the blame for the debt, players wages but it’s not Sky’s fault, that’s the clubs that agree to the agents demands. Now if clubs actually stood together and said no, we’re not paying, the financial side of the game wouldn’t be where it is today. And I LOVE, the coverage Sky offers, sure it can be frustrating when a game gets moved, the Forest game was recently moved which meant I wouldn’t have been able to go so I have been affected and it could be handled a lot better than it is. But, I love being able to sit on my sofa or down the pub with mates watching a game on Monday night, Saturday dinner, then 3 games on Sunday. I have a Sky Sports and BT Sports subscription, it’s expensive but it’s great. The coverage the game gets now will ultimately mean fans will have a better knowledge of games, goals, players outside of their own team and across Europe so in 50 years time we’re not having conversations like this where fans are being accused of arrogance, pigheadedness as they haven’t YouTube searched a game back in the 80s which was apparently iconic at the time. To finish, @DarkFruitsRam7 mentioned him, Mason Mount, at the time “some” were trying to claim nobody knows who he was, but this is the thing, they did and why? The coverage the game gets today. Back in the 80s do you remember who was in the youth teams at Derby? I’m guessing not. Today though, fans do so when we see the likes of Sibley break into the team it’s not who is this kid, it’s excitement because we’ve seen what he can do. I love football today, finances need sorting out, Sky could handle rescheduling games better, but I LOVE it and I won’t hang my head in shame for feeling this way.
