    Anon reacted to Sexydadbod in Lawrence up to 30 minutes in a game   
    I keep reading that if he was consistent, he’d be playing in the premier league so get off his back. To me that’s nonsense, we can expect at least some consistently from our players. He’s supposed to be hitting his best years at his age but can anyone say he’s gotten better to when he first signed or is showing signs that he is going to improve? 
    One of the reasons why so many loved the 13/14 and early part of the 14/15 season, is because our players were consistent and we knew what to expect from them every week, even players perceived to be inconsistent like Hendrick, were consistent back then. Players like Forsyth, Dawkins, Ward, Buxton, Russell, may not have been the most talented in the world, but we knew that they’d give their absolute all every darn week. I tell you one thing , there’s no way Clough Jr , Billy Davies or McClaren would have put up with players like Lawrence because they wanted players who played for the team. The reality is we will never get promoted with greedy players like Lawrence in his current form unless he adapts. How can a manager build a team when he doesn’t know what to expect from his player? He could have his rarer 7/10 days or his more frequent 4/10s. His poor form is affecting other players like Malone and getting them scapegoated because he provides no defensive support.  It may seem harsh but that’s the reality. Someone needs to sit this lad down and tell him he’s never going to be Ronaldo so stop trying to become a cheap imitation, become your own player.
    He can start winning fans over and getting people off his back like myself by giving his absolute all every week, even when he doesn’t play well. His physical build is better than Ward’s, Russell’s and Ince’s yet they tried their best every week so he has no excuse. I guarantee people will get off his back if he starts grafting more, it will benefit his career in the long run.

    My general experience with insurance companies is "the customer always loses" - oh, someone bumped your car in a car park, we had to put your premiums up....you got older, younger, newer car, older car, changed job, changed address.....or if everything stays the same, we just put em up anyway and dare you to go trawling for better.

    Anon got a reaction from R@M in Michael Johnson with England U21s   
    I don't particularly care about balance. Whoever is best for the position should get the job. I hate the language used surrounding this scheme though. The section you quoted to "better represent the players" is absolutely farcical. So the FA are seemingly under the impression that people need to have the same colour skin as the people they're teaching in order for lessons to sink in?
    The people at the FA who implemented this are either racists or cowards, probably both. What the FA are saying essentially is that they as an organisation are so inherently racist that there's no way their recruitment process could ever be fair towards black coaches, so they have to set a definite number of BAME coaching roles to scupper the white identitarians who presumably make up their selection committees.

    ********* at the petrol station who park in the space for air, then go inside to presumably get change, then take 5 minutes to put on special gloves to handle the precious dust caps on their shitty 'personalised plate' matte-grey BMW 5 series, then take about 10 minutes to inflate two tyres. Then have to go back inside to get more change as they've messed something up, then a further 2 minutes to do the rest of their pressures. Then leave their shitheap in the same space before buggering off into the co-op.
    A twenty minute ordeal to do something that takes 3 minutes you complete and utter prat.
    Bet he also fills up at service stations and then spends 30 minutes inside getting a Greggs and a Costa without moving off the pumps.

    How significant is it that the reaction to my post about bringing back Chris Martin hasn’t raised the usual hackles ?
    Answer .. VERY !
    And why ? Because my point about Waghorn, Marriott and Bennett not having proven to be good enough is indisputable, and therefore no-one can disagree any more ..
    So, we all agree now do we ? That class and ability will come to our rescue if Chris Martin is selected .. 
    Hallelujah, at last, you’ve ‘seen the light’ !

    I don't know how you can misunderstand a chant so badly. The woman beating incident is mentioned along with the leg break to suggest a kind of karmic justice was wrought on Collymore. I'm not saying the chant is in good taste, but if you think it has anything to do with the glorification of abuse, then you're sorely mistaken.

    Fine, get rid of Bennett and play who as cover exactly? I'll remind you our efforts to fill those gaps this summer left us with Dowell and Paterson. It is stupid to focus on a low wage (relatively) player who can cover several positions when there's hardly an array of superstars vying for those places in the team.

    Anon reacted to Mostyn6 in Bury FC.   
    I wonder if there are grounds for legal action against the football league for neglect. They have clearly not done due diligence of Steve Dale in their fit and proper test, being as though Bury as a club pay into the football league, and this service is part of what they are paying for, they have, in my opinion, questions that should be answered, and whilst the real cancer here is Dale, the FL are not blameless.

    A masterful innings from Stokes. The way he powered the team home at the end will get all the headlines, but his patience in the final session yesterday and this morning's session was top class test batting. To be able to manage his own performance to accelerate in such a manner whilst working the ball to keep Leach off strike as much as possible is insanely difficult.
    Leach is amazing too. Shades of David Steele when he was cleaning his specs in preparation for 90mph bouncers.
