  1. Just finished this and was a struggle. Unfortunately there's just too much to cover to be able to do any justice to the content. At some points it was almost like 'this fella was born then started a war then got killed. Moving on'. I mean, what? So something different up next, and a book form one of my faves, David Baldacci. It's a bit different from his usual thrillers though. It's called One Summer and not sure if I'm going to enjoy this one. We'll soon see.
  2. You are correct. I don't disagree at all that it's not even a consideration for white managers, but again how has that anything to do with the facts surrounding this specific situation? It's a poorer argument to make saying this is definintely not anything to do with racism just becasue it's not.
  3. Well as I've said, people can choose to completely ignore the fact that they gave other managers who were white a lot more slack than they seem to have given the black one all they like, but it's happened. It might have nothing to do whatsoever with colour, and I really do hope so, but I cannot see how faced with the facts anyone can rule it out. And saying the fact they hired him in the first place proves they're most definitely not racist is nonsense. How many times you heard a racist argue they aren't becasue they've got black mates?
  4. This does matter but I couldn't fine the 'Annoyances That Do Matter Thread'. I was reminded of it from something @Tommy said in the 'Things We Say.....' thread. When people keep their phones on silent so can't take your call because they haven't heard it.
  5. So you honestly believe that there's not one iota of probability of what he says? Why not?
  6. For entertainment which is my personal barometer of what makes the best I'd say The Championship. Without doubt not as skilful as the top tier of football leagues, but for competitive games and action it has it all.
  7. It's always sad to see these clubs fold. Would love to know how they got into the situation they did.
  8. You are my hero. I bow to your sexual prowess and endurance. That's at least 6 times for me.
  9. I'm hoping we can get a game on this weekend. We haven't been able to play a home game since the beginning of the month. If the rain holds off we should be good, especially with the wind we're getting which helps remove the surface water. It'll be two weeks since a game on Saturday. I'm going stir crazy.

    One of the pettiest things I've ever done was box somebody in doing this. I was popping down to the supermarket to grab some bits for a barbecue one afternoon and somebody had parked like that but front in rather than side on like in the picture. I had two friends with me in their vehicles as well, so we parked tight down each side and just to be even bigger dicks across the front as well. The owner was waiting for us when we came back and unsurprisingly wasn't happy. Stated the reason for him parking like that was that he wasn't chipping his doors for anybody. Not one of my proudest moments, but was funny as fnarg.
  11. I'm no fan of Durham's, and I agree that he does talk a lot of "bollocks", but some of his points are interesting to hear and be considered. I'm not having all of it, but am not ignoring it all either just because the fella is a plum. His points about the treatment of previous managers is correct, so hard to ignore.
  12. So disagree. It will be a cold day in hell before I'll be convinced that any footballer is worth getting paid almost £16m a year.
