    I'm in Iceland and I was more than peeved when I logged to find only audio available. However, if you have a bet account thats open 365 days a year, based in Stoke and live outside the UK, you can often view games live as long as you have a little money in it 😉

    Took me a second to believe you when you said you live in Sweden for a second. I was like "yeah yeah, same as everyone here who claims they're in Cyprus"
    Then I read your name 😄

    Strange day. I live in Sweden and pay a monthly subscription to Rams TV. Never miss a match. 
    Then today my Rams TV said ” broadcast not available in your location”!! Huh? WTF
    So instead of getting cross and frustrated I dropped an email to the address they provide for support! That email bounced.
    Then I got cross and frustrated. Seriously Rams TV. Thanks for ruining my weekend to twots.

    If he’s serious about still having a career, he could have used us to put himself in the shop window to move on to bigger and better things. Clubs are hardly queuing up for his services are they ?
    18 thousand quid a month and it’s not quite what he fancies ? A good kick up the arse and a reality check is what he needs.

    Doing the tour of the emirates and more importantly the museum is a great thing to do when in London, get Charlie as your guide and you will get two hours of some of the most fabulous Derby County stories you could imagine, he loves Derby and has a lot to tell you.

    I rarely comment after matches but this one has got me out of my chair.
    Thats not even a decision for a ref and linesman to make. Its as clear as day. I thought the Ebosele one not quite as clear.
    Amazing that suddenly we are not getting any penalty shouts at all. Plus the Johnson lad not getting a second yellow. It does start to add up for me.
    Again very proud of the lads currently representing our club on the field. We really couldnt ask for more effort. If we dont get the extra points deduction there is a chance we could get out of this yet.

    We know that BBC reporting standards have plummeted in recent years but for Clem in Final Score to refer to Trevor Hemings as Eddie Hemings, not once but twice was quite appalling.

    Should of won again, thought they were poor. Stonewall penalty for the handball, it can’t keep happening the officiating is a disgrace. Shinne and Bird dominated midfield, thought Sibo and Lawrence where passengers unfortunately. Fans were great again, however thought with our numbers we could of been more vocal.

    Blimey Utch. Sorry to hear that lad. Its been a stable place of employment in Uttoxeter as far back as I remember. Strange times we live in.

    StockholmRam reacted to uttoxram75 in Factory jobs   
    I've been elected to represent the factory based salaried staff in the Consultation meetings regarding the "proposed" closure of our factory.
    Had our first meeting today and it was quite brutal. We're ducked. Its an old site and due to several changes of ownership in recent years leading to no investment, coupled with mental increases in the price of flour, sugar, palm oil, and energy costs over the last 18 months, there is no way back.
    We are not financially viable.
    We have been through severe restructures in recent years, chopping jobs left, right and centre to no avail, the company that owns us does not want to modernise and invest so we will close in March 2022.
    I've worked there for 42 years. Started as a machine operator in 1978, ended up as a Shift Production Manager, covered the Operations Manager role for a period when the site was between owners. FFS, I met me missus there!
    In a small town like Uttoxeter, I have seen kids and grandkids of lads I first worked with start their working life at the factory. Had blokes coming up to me in pubs demanding to know why their lad had been sacked, had people begging me for jobs, my wife has been threatened because I had to sack somebody.
    I have also had people come up to me and thanked me for giving them confidence to improve their lives, people who I used to work with who now run their own businesses who always buy me a pint because they were inspired by me. I can't express the feeling that gives me.
    My son did his engineering apprenticeship at the factory and is now the Operations Manager for Aggreko in Asia. My daughter worked there for a few years part time running the factory shop and now runs her own business.
    We used to do Evening shifts, Lunch Time relief shifts  etc that appealed to mums who wanted a part time job to work around childcare but we had to stop all that as we got taken over by different companies. We were a factory that was part of our community.
    Its a sad situation but I will do everything I can to negotiate the best possible deal for the people who have asked me to represent them.
     
    I'm a bit emotional and had a couple of drinks so time to call it a night.

    Erm, perhaps not.
    Been told today that the Biscuit Factory in Uttoxeter is to be closed down by next March.
    There may well be a few agency short term positions going but 600 of us will be out of work very soon.😢
