  1. Be wary of extras: My nephew had a photographer who took literally hundreds of pics and basically uploaded them on his website, with watermarks all over, he (actually his wife) then picked the best and ordered them in various quantities, cost a fortune over the initial fee. And took 2 months to arrive. His sister when she married had a photographer who again took hundreds for a flat rate, and gave her an SD card so she could do whatever she liked, I think for regular size stuff she used Snapfish at a penny a print.
  2. The squad do al sorts of warm ups before the game, with almost as many "trainers" as players. Watching the shooting practice its somewhere less than 50% success. Probably explains why we hardly bother in the game. When the game actually starts after the 10 minute cool down AFTER the 30 minute warm up we usually are not out of the blocks until the other side scores. So I'm not convinced it does much.
  3. I think more important should be that they are fully dressed with Shirt, shin pads etc ready to come on at a moments notice. Not this pantomime that seem to have infected all subs. Last night Mount took at least 2 minutes to get ready and that was quick compared to some.
  4. Apologies for the Caps lock, but see first line! LYING AROUND, PONDERING THE PROBLEMS OF THE WORLD, I REALIZED THAT AT MY AGE I DON'T REALLY GIVE A RAT'S ASS ANYMORE. IF WALKING IS GOOD FOR YOUR HEALTH, THE POSTMAN WOULD BE IMMORTAL. A WHALE SWIMS ALL DAY, ONLY EATS FISH, AND DRINKS WATER, BUT IS STILL FAT. A RABBIT RUNS AND HOPS AND ONLY LIVES 15 YEARS, WHILE A TORTOISE DOESN'T RUN AND DOES MOSTLY NOTHING, YET IT LIVES FOR 150 YEARS. AND THEY TELL US TO EXERCISE? I DON'T THINK SO. NOW THAT I'M OLDER, HERE'S WHAT I'VE DISCOVERED: 1. I STARTED OUT WITH NOTHING, AND I STILL HAVE MOST OF IT. 2. MY WILD OATS ARE MOSTLY ENJOYED WITH PRUNES AND ALL-BRAN. 3. FUNNY, I DON'T REMEMBER BEING ABSENT-MINDED. 4. FUNNY, I DON'T REMEMBER BEING ABSENT-MINDED. 5. IF ALL IS NOT LOST, THEN WHERE THE HECK IS IT? 6. IT WAS A WHOLE LOT EASIER TO GET OLDER THAN IT WAS TO GET WISER. 7. SOME DAYS, YOU'RE THE TOP DOG, SOME DAYS YOU'RE THE HYDRANT. 8. I WISH THE BUCK REALLY DID STOP HERE, I SURE COULD USE A FEW OF THEM. 9. KIDS IN THE BACKSEAT CAUSE ACCIDENTS. 10. ACCIDENTS IN THE BACK SEAT CAUSE KIDS. 11. IT IS HARD TO MAKE A COMEBACK WHEN YOU HAVEN'T BEEN ANYWHERE. 12. THE WORLD ONLY BEATS A PATH TO YOUR DOOR WHEN YOU'RE IN THE BATHROOM. 13. IF GOD WANTED ME TO TOUCH MY TOES, HE'D HAVE PUT THEM ON MY KNEES. 14. WHEN I'M FINALLY HOLDING ALL THE RIGHT CARDS, EVERYONE WANTS TO PLAY CHESS. 15. IT IS NOT HARD TO MEET EXPENSES...THEY'RE EVERYWHERE. 16. THE ONLY DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A RUT AND A GRAVE IS THE DEPTH. 17. THESE DAYS, I SPEND A LOT OF TIME THINKING ABOUT THE HEREAFTER. . . 17A. I GO SOMEWHERE TO GET SOMETHING, AND THEN WONDER WHAT I'M "HERE AFTER". 18. FUNNY, I DON'T REMEMBER BEING ABSENT-MINDED. 19. IT IS A LOT BETTER TO BE SEEN THAN VIEWED. 20. HAVE I SENT THIS MESSAGE TO YOU BEFORE???...OR DID I GET IT FROM YOU?
  5. Totally ignoring all names, genders, race which is why I've taken this out of the player threads Any young player playing at this level is bound to have off days, and may appear to have an attitude problem. I think in many cases its not a bad attitude its simply not quite knowing what to do and being flat footed. In our squad we range from vastly experienced players with all that knowledge of hundreds of games to draw on, down to youngsters with mere handfuls of games. Call it "Rabbit caught in the headlights" syndrome. This won't be helped by team and play style changes. Rooney is part of the perception issue. He always seems to know what to do with the ball even before he gets it. His thought process is way ahead. Less experienced players just do not see things that quickly, do not have the "telepathy" to direct their movement. The contrast with Rooney is immense and they look worse than they are. But here's the thing: Rooney is talking non stop to our players and yet I've not seen him get in any players face and berate them which I'm sure he would if he perceived lack of effort. PS I seem to remember when a raw Tom Huddlestone broke in the team he was described as lazy. A languid style with long legs, no future for a player like that!
  6. I did too, but things change. I loved my first car a 8 year old mini 850, lots of memories of what went on in it and where we went in that car. Would I want to still be driving it, clouding those memories with more recent ones like lack of comfort, unreliability, no power etc Absolutely NOT.
  7. Derby 0-2 Fulham A tedious Friday night ahead.
  8. I did the BBG tour before they knocked it down, actually parked where the front room would have been in my digs on Shaftesbury Crescent. The BBG was (even allowing for the lack of maintenance) a dump. Changing rooms and showers worse than you imagine, Behind scenes facilities abysmal, stands cramped and would have had to be totally rebuilt to meet modern safety standards, even in those days. inevitably that would have led to "spread outward" not upward so the atmosphere would have anyway. Parking would be impossible so crowds would have shrunk to "fanatics" only. Investment/ownership would have faded away. Moving had to happen and PP is pretty accessible, comfortable and bits of the roof don't fall you like happened several times at the Normanton end.
  9. Just realised this was the last Saturday 3:00 kick off home game.
  10. That's a bit precise for 50 years ago!
  11. A Valentines Lament::: My nookie days are over My pilot light is out It used to be embarrassing, the way it would behave For each and every morning, it would stand and watch me shave Now as old age approache,s it sure gives me the blues, to see it hang its little head and watch tie my shoes!
  12. There was a picture somewhere which showed it all spread out including 10 £20 quid notes. Wine was Malbec. PS Didn't Trust me,! You been talking to my missus?
  13. They did:£200 quid donation to funds Bottle of Macallan, 2 bottles of red and box of Ferrero Rocher. Also a card of heartfelt apologies.
  14. I did see someone videoing the game escorted out early season. They came back in later very red faced and spent next 10 minutes ranting at every one near them.. So I'm not sure its allowable.
  15. @Millenniumram and @TexasRam I actually agree with both of you to a degree and we wouldn't have this thread if some of the goal shots actually went in. However I would point out that dawn tomorrow is 07:38 if you want to take your handbags to Markeaton Park.. Just joking!
  16. For people who may want to look at statistical analysis a bit deeper, take a dip into fivethirtyeight.com. It uses data from Opta and other reputable sources. Other pages give links to various stats methods without getting too mathematical. It is a bit of fun to follow; from memory last year it was fairly good a predicting final positions quite early in the season. I like that this year although Leeds go up Forest do not. Worryingly we are only 10 points off the drop zone if EFL goes against us. PS Gives us a 1/4 chance of a win at Swans.
  17. Six Sigma: Well that takes me back to when I had a Boss who paid me rather than one ( a wife) who doesn't. Not sure I would use it in football though as its more suited to processes to make things But taking a lighthearted look at it: 1: Determine: Customer needs and benefits: Collectively for football as a whole; more goals and exciting action. For an individual fan, promotion 2: Measure: Baseline and identify areas for improvement. Measure of goals is obvious. Excitement possibly shots, tackles, Less VAR 3: Identify root causes and determine improvements: Goals are too small, Goalkeepers and defenders too big. Solution: Bigger goals no player over six foot, body armour to encourage more contact. Ban VAR 4: Improve, Implement changes-Good luck with FIFA UEFA etc 5:Control: Determine before and after and decide next steps--No chance PS the "six" is nothing to do with the steps its about standard deviations from a mean-and we all know footy fans are deviants.
  18. Swansea 0- 0 DCFC Who voted but forgot to predict
  19. Only two teams have less goals for than us yet 11 have conceded more. This points to two things : Our defence is not as bad as some make out (basically average). If you rate entertainment in terms of goals then we are not good value. For all the euphoria over two high scoring wins against poor opposition, a better measure will come at Swansea. a team with very similar scoring, for and against as us.
  20. If you don't have it in the house how do you feel self righteous about dieting? There has to be some sort of upside emotionally. Her indoors is permanently on about "Syns" "Free Foods" "Healthy Bs" "Speed foods" all from Slimming World. Me I skip dessert (mostly). Who is losing most!!!
  21. I'm on a diet and was feeling quite self righteous about how well the denying stuff was going. Then: You mention my favourite dessert and I headed for the freezer and microwave!!!!
  22. I never had you as an "old softie" (turn of phrase), but you are so right! I met my Mrs Right (nickname "always") at the BBG October 69- DCFC v Man U. Still happy together now! Mind you as she fainted at my feet and I helped her out I missed much of the match which we won 2-0. Man U were a top top side then.
