Re: The F1 Thread

If they keep Latifi and ditch Russel we might as well just give up on F1 altogether!

Re: The F1 Thread

No massive surprise there. Magnussen was a slight surprise for me given he's scored more points for Haas in the about 2/3rds the races of Grosjean. Both salaried drivers though so I suppose a cost saving exercise and start with a clean slate and a highly funded rookie. Yep. Neither set the world al...

Re: The Message of Hate Thread

Getting it in the neck at work because someone else hasn’t done something that they were supposed to because “the lines of communication weren’t clear”.

I sent out the actions after the meeting via email and WhatsApp but the person with the action “didn’t see it”.

Re: NUFC Minor/Untrusted Transfer Rumours (Summer 2020)

Talking of young defenders, someone I'd take is Axel Tuanzebe from Man U. Young defender, quick, preferred position is CB but can also play at RB. Impressed on loan at Villa in 18/19 and not getting a look-in at Man U. But we're not doing any business today... Based on last nights Man U v PSG game ...

Re: Other club transfers summer 2020

Might be as simple as nobody will pay his wages, similar to how we were stuck with Colback. Jones could clearly do a job at a club lower down the league but if he’s on a 6 figure salary nobody is going to take that on. For me I’m more surprised they let Smalling go. It’s a different league, but he w...

Re: Trimming the squad to 25

Yeah I thought Gayle was out until Xmas at least but Ritchie was only for a couple of months (if which 2 weeks has already passed) so not too surprising he’s included as could be back late next month.

I wish we were enjoyable to watch 🦆 I missed the entertainers years, but early 2000s under Sir Bobby with Solano and Robert on the wings, Speed and Dyer in midfield and Shearer/Bellamy up-front was decent <awe> Andy Griffin scoring the winner v Juventus, a 2-2 in the San Siro, Shearer hattrick agai...

Re: Other club transfers summer 2020

You would hope (or assume) that the top clubs would have some sort of programme in place to advise and educate young players on how to manage money, but if such a thing did exist it would probably be a token one-off session and maybe not even mandatory.

Re: Other club transfers summer 2020

I read that interview too the other day...Guardian I think. I've said before, if you'd given me massive sums of cash and a lot of free time when I was 18-21 then I would have made some pretty bad choices. I like to think I would have been grateful for the amazing career opportunity though! That's t...

Re: Weekend Football 17/10 to 19/10

I think that Chelsea under Lampard are good to watch, but not in the way that he'd want <laugh> They're generally pretty open, have plenty of goals in them but are also pretty poor defensively so you usually get good action at both ends of the pitch. Not just this season, last season too. Leeds are ...

Re: Other club transfers summer 2020

Yeah, when someone doesn't take the second/third/fourth chance they're given their words don't hold much weight. I can't believe he turned down £1000 a week to play for Rochdale just because there were some conditions about where he'd have to live. It's quite sad because he was actually a really de...

Re: The Message of Awe Thread

In the office 2 days a week now, getting the train to work costs me almost £20 a week and takes about 90 mins door-to-door.

Drove for the first time today, doing 10-6 to avoid traffic, took me 50 mins door to door and cost me £1 to park. That'll do me from now on.
