    bigbadbob reacted to RoyMac5 in Rooney or Cocu   
    I think he'd look less 'serious' if we were winning more matches - as simple as that. I'm sure he's used to working with what he's given and tbh I reckon he's looking forward to working with a player of Rooney's stature. If he doesn't want Rosenior then I also reckon he'd let him go.

    bigbadbob reacted to GenBr in Middlesbrough to sue the EFL over Derby's Stadium Purchase   
    Its not levelling anything though. We have 7 teams in the league this year who can spend far more than any other Championship team due to parachute payments if they so desired. Thanks to FFP smaller teams like Burton will have very little resources to compete with even if their owner wanted to pump millions into the team. It just secures the positions of the bigger teams.
    I don't even understand why parachute payments are needed in the first place. You already get £100 mill prize money even if you finish bottom of the league. There are also at least half a dozen clubs who wrote relegation clauses into Prem players contracts which stated they would either take pay cuts or be allowed to leave in the event of relegation.
    It doesn't matter whether we accept them or not. Any changes have to be voted on by all the EFL clubs. The rules are currently being reviewed, but our opinion is irrelevant if every other club votes them down.
    We didn't circumnavigate any rules. We followed the rules precisely as laid down by the EFL, which allows sales of assets such as stadiums to be counted towards FFP. They changed the rules to allow this.

    Certainly wish the best for the two players  .  Personally, I would like nothing better than to see Lamps and his team of limpets managing Barnet in a couple of years .  I'm sure I'm not the only one.

    Thanks... 
    To clear up a few points that others have posted, I never meant to imply that I had been called racist or stupid, although I have been at times on this forum - but that's water of a ducks back.  What I meant was that the whole Brexit argument has become so entrenched that its pointless carrying on (see post above this😛).  The discussion might move forwards from time to time but it always ends with the same polarised arguments.  The politicians have shown that they are a law unto themselves and we're just along for the ride and I personally can't be bothered with the petty snide comments anymore.
    When the topic drifts away from Brexit and I have something to say I'll chime in, but unless something drastic happens I think I'm all Brexited out!

    You don’t need to call it direct there are stealth ways of doing things and I have seen plenty of examples of that.

    Well, if you think it may help with his second half performance, why not. Perhaps we should get george Thorne to do it. My mrs thinks he's quite "hot" and at least he'll still be contributing to the team.

    To be honest, I don't know any Leave voters who thought that there would be no short term distruption when we leave (which is exactly what this is describing). Just that whatever the short term impact is, will be worth it in the longer term for their perceived benefits of leaving.

    For what its worth I'm still patiently waiting for Brexit to be delivered - a clean break from Europe, not the crappy tied in indefinitely May deal.  
    There is literally no point in engaging on this forum however as the conversation just goes round in circles and then you get called stupid or racist.

    I did use the internet. This forum is on the internet and I asked you as you seemed to have specific information of where he has his money invested. I already have a fair whack invested in good so I've got that base covered. Anyway, back to johnson. Are all his investments offshore and in what does he have his money invested? The link you provided didn't give any information. I've tried using the internet, as you've suggested, but I can't find anything that answers my question. Apologies for asking again but, as you do seem to know, if you could enlighten me I'd appreciate it. Many thanks

    So you think in 4 seasons, and 4 different managers, nobody has managed to spot this midfield imbalance that you've spotted? 🤣
    See England are 5-1 up, would probably be 10 if Southgate had spotted the balance problem that you highlighted!
  24. Haha
    bigbadbob reacted to G STAR RAM in England v Kosovo   
    No I do understand but to be honest you could just post your opinion at the beginning of the season and then not bother with the rest of the matches.
    You're never happy with team selection and the balance is always wrong, know you will post this without even reading your posts.

    bigbadbob reacted to G STAR RAM in England v Kosovo   
    So that's now Derby and England managers that dont know about balance in a football team.
    At some point in time maybe you are going to have to consider that maybe it is you that does not understand what balance in a football team is?
