Re: So I was correct again

In principle I would be against not paying someone for refusing to play football when it could be life threatening to them or their family, it's not like they are refusing to try and save lives like an NHS worker for instance. But the problem is the amount that they get and then what they do with i...

Re: So I was correct again

I'm not too sure about that tbh. What's so special about football and footballers ? Staff in supermarkets are asked to work. So are postmen, dustmen, bus & train drivers, NHS staff, police and countless others. Personally I don't really see the point in playing football in empty stadia, but if the ...

Re: So I was correct again

Just asking, why would you ridicule people leaving in council houses? How is that ridiculing? Exact op inposite. It is obvious that people living in council houses do not have the same funds as the mega rich. I am saying they are not as consumed with money as the mega rich. Surely everyone sees tha...

Re: So Who Has Good Honest Owners inPL

Better off is a bit subjective, in what respect are you meaning "better off"? The question should have been are we better run. The answer to that would be no, pretty much everyone in the league is a better run outfit than we are, with the exception of the Toon who are a basket case as well. I was p...

Re: A Question for haribo

Personally I don't see that as a lie but as a belief that didn't turn out to be as effective as they hoped. I honestly think the move was a genuine attempt to try to increase the club's standing as was the appointment of Pellegrini but I still believe there is now more potential for the club to gro...

Re: Is this site big enough to ditch Claret and Hugh?

It's not just reports from the club, there's a whole lot more on there than that at the moment. It picks up quite a lot of media gossip, whether you agree with their comment on it is your choice. You're bigging up pro boards sops Claret and Hugh. Quelle surprise :lol: You obviously haven't looked a...

Re: A Question for haribo

I've no idea - did they actually put a figure on it? Any business plan is a forecast and rarely that accurate anyway - thats why the banks won't lend money to SME's atm even though they're 80% government backed! Apart from the obvious attempt at the bullying and belittling of one of our members (wh...
