  1. Cu I've just got back from a picnic at Foremark reservoir and the idiocy is off the scale. Clans of people clearly not from the same household letting their kids swarm all over each other and around other groups of people. Loads of Villa & Birmingham City shirts so I'm assuming they've come at least 20 miles for a walk about. All flaunting the rules, and not giving a toss cus Boris has eased off. Herd immunity will happen simply through our collective stupidity...
  2. Bliss, there's something about a midweek Match of the Day that gives me the warm & fuzzies...
  3. It’s been a while since I watched it - although I’m considering a series rewatch - so if I did have a problem understanding some of the dialogue, I can’t remember. Just stick with it, you’ll be well rewarded...
  4. Season 4 is as close to perfect as a TV show can get...
  5. Been on a bit of a Netflix tip the past couple of weeks - White Lines - Was quite excited when the trailer dropped, and the fact it starred Laura Haddock who's not only a damn fine actress but foxy as all hell, but I was bored to tears after 2 episodes, and only stuck with it because Mrs R quite liked it, and insisted we finish it. Just a complete mess, and the tone was all over the place. The Last Dance - Awesome documentary featuring one of the best teams to play any sport ever, and the greatest sportsman of all time. Q Ball - Moving documentary about the basketball team at San Quentin prison in California. The Defiant Ones - Documentary about the founders of Beats Audio, Dr Dre & Jerry Iovine. Really good.
  6. "AND IT'S LIIIIIIIIVE!" DUCK RIGHT OFF!!!
  7. The home game was pretty special as well. For Laursen's absolute thunderbastard of a free kick... ... and witnessing Stimac completely dominate Cantona, who was at the time the reigning Football Writers Player of the Year. Igor hardly gave him a sniff.
  8. This is mine as well. Watching it back, we hardly got a sniff of the ball, let alone chances on goal, a quintessential King Bill-eh smash & grab. Don't think I'll ever experience joy like it when Pearson's shot went in. Sheer undiluted joy...
  9. I think that's the single most insulting thing anyone has ever said to me...
  10. Think about it, it must take a lot of time to come up with a credible way to say that you as a governing body, completely ballsed up enforcing your own rules to such an extent that they actively signed off on the (perfectly legal) practices in good faith, and have only decided to do something about it since some mardy bell-whiff, in charge of a no-mark north east club threw a wobbler, cus he didn't think of it first... This is what really pisses me off about the whole thing, we didn't break any rules. Yes we bent them slightly, but legally we didn't do anything that wasn't within the rules. We even told the EFL we did it, and they said it was ok. All these clubs getting the arse aren't really mad at us, they're mad at the EFL for being incompetent.

  12. Both of these for me. I've been saying for years that a cap should be brought in, but it wouldn't work if - A) Everyone's not signed up for it. B) The gap in caps isn't too great from division to division, therefore the EFL should grow some balls, stop thinking of themselves as the Premier League's poor little brother and market themselves better.
  13. It wasn't Nigel that did the majority of the scouting, it was his brother Simon...
  14. The Kuqi thing is the most annoying because when he was at the point of the attack, in front of Commons, Cwyka, and Bueno, we were pretty much unplayable...
  15. Gotta say, the fact he’s stepped down so others can keep their jobs, shows you what a good man he is. Not to open old arguments but it does occasionally annoy thinking that if he’d just taken the shackles off more, and had a better coaching team, he could’ve done so much better for us...
  16. Did you mean to miss off the 0 in that??
  17. I can imagine a lot of clubs would've fancied him, but wouldn't touch him because of his wages. The club wouldn't treat it like loaning a youngster and cover his wages, we'd want a fair chunk of that £30k. You only one to blame for the whole situation is Pearson. Pure end of the window panic buy...
  18. Unfortunately not everyone has the same awareness when dealing with these kinda thing. I myself will continue to do what I have been doing, but a lot of people will see the roads getting busier, shops reopening and take it that things are back to normal so will be arranging BBQs as soon as the weather perks up, and will pop round to their mates when there's nothing on TV. This is his herd immunity plan via the back door.
  19. Yeah but all the previous incumbents were a LOT better at disguising that fact. And they at least gave the impression they knew what the funk they were doing. Boris looks like he couldn't even give you directions to his own toilet... Well I must be stupid too then, as I'm still trying to figure out WTF it means. It implies the virus is something physical, that you spot creeping up on you, you can't, so staying alert makes no funkin difference to your well being. Without clear guidelines people will take the piss. It's like leaving your teenage kids to look after the house with when you go away for the weekend. If you kept the drinks cabinet locked, told them no more than 5 mates round at a time, and no posting the fact they've got the place to themselves on social media, you may come home to little more than a couple of smashed plates and a bad smell from the toilet. You tell them to do what they like but to use their common sense you'll come home to your Duresta sofa impaled by the TV aerial, and your front garden on fire...
  20. https://www.mirror.co.uk/sport/football/news/danny-rose-says-f-morale-22011530 Danny Rose has been backed by fans after becoming the latest Premier League star to insist football should not return with people dying from the coronavirus. Tottenham ’s England star said: “The government's saying bring back football to boost the morale of the nation. I don't give a duck about the nation's morale. People's lives are at risk! Certainly has a point doesn't he...

  22. The look on Carragher's face still gets me 😄
  23. Mrs R, who works for a house builder, has been informed she'll be returning to work on 21st with, hopefully strict, measures in place.
