Villa possibly top of the league and almost halfway to safety after 5 games! <yikes>
Deservedly so, they've been excellent. As have Leeds, just not as sharp defensively as Villa have been.

Re: The Message of Hate Thread

Next time CC in their supervisor when you send out the action items and ask them to confirm receipt. I agree that that would be advisable next time, however it wouldn't address the same problem that occurred with the previous communication, i.e. that the recipient didn't see it (or claimed not to h...

Usual service has resumed, thank you. I can now see which channel I cannot watch the football on because I don't pay for any subscriptions <gent>.

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”. Next time CC in their supervisor w...

Re: Other club transfers summer 2020

Jones only signed a new four year contract last February. Apparently he is on £75k per week. I'm surprised he has played at Man Utd for so long. He looked good at Blackburn and in his first few seasons at Man Utd, but I think if Ferguson had still been there, Jones would have gone long before now. P...

Re: Liverpool and Man Utd plot new European Premier League

I hope they do it, it goes pear shaped within two seasons and then all of the clubs have to enter their respective footballing pyramids at the bottom and work their way back up.

Re: Other club transfers summer 2020

That's the one! And yeah, I'd like to think I wouldn't take it for granted, but I can't even imagine what it'd be like to have spent my formative years in the football bubble, praised as the next big thing and all of this success, attention and money coming at me faster than I can mature. I'd have ...

Re: Other club transfers summer 2020

Manchester United defender Phil Jones, 28, wants to leave the club in January, with the former England international unhappy at being left out of their Champions League squad. He's another one that was tipped for greatness as a youngster and has been living off that hype ever since. I don't think h...

There was a decent article in FourFourTwo about Nile Ranger.

Re: Holidays

My wedding was expensive in comparison to some of yours (about £6k) but about a quarter of the price of some weddings I've been to. I knew someone who spent £30k on their wedding and got divorced within a year. They're still paying for a wedding to someone they're not even married to anymore <doh>.

Re: The Message of Awe Thread

I am absolutely dreading having to drive back to work. My old office was about 5.5 miles from my house and straight down the dual carriageway. I could get to work in less than 10 mins on a good morning. When our office moved 4 miles further down the road, it added another 20-30 mins onto my commute ...

Re: Other club transfers summer 2020

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 decent player, but just one that is also a total scumbag who, while thinking of nobody but himself, consistently ma...
