  1. just got the call. Got the job! Sweet, sweet relief. 12 contract, time to build up my new business with my other directors, I've never been so pleased to take a pay drop!! This year! This for all the well wishers, means a lot and I can now go back to getting some sleep and looking forward. Too early for a beer?!

  2. Ive seen a lot of posts of people being annoyed at the consistency of players kneeling in support of equality in society, it’s not civil rights It isn’t BLM it’s equality. Equality. so equality in sport. No not people getting better privileges as a player and being recognised for his skill and not because he’s a different colour Football is the most watched sport in the world, if the world world tunes in to watch Rashford, Kane, Ronaldo, Messi and the moment before, one person see These players take a knee and that provokes a thought, then it works. You can’t stop t

  3. Appologies for not posting for a while. I've had enough of this site for bit, it's too political for me and unfortunatley I've got 3 old members of the family who caught this last week (all doing ok so far), which has put things into perspective for me, so this is my last post for a bit. Main things to remember are; Covid 19 is a mild illness for many, lasting less than a fortnight for most but according to ZOE; For 1 in 50 it can result in symptoms for more than 3 months and unfortunatley hospitalisation and death for some of those. 1 in 20 suffer symptoms for 8 weeks or more.

  4. Right I usually hate it when people do this but I'm going to do it anyway. A quote from a bloke I like watching on YouTube. ' If we commemorate one thing, then that should presumably be the biggest human event that affects us today. The biggest event in human history was World War Two. It was the biggest war, the deadliest war, the most widespread war and the event that changed the world the most. At the start of the war, Russia was a sleeping bear, Britain was the most powerful nation on the planet, and Germany was a brutal dictatorship. At the end of the war, The US

  5. Thanks for that mick yep living next door to you as ankle biters was always fun along with Paul and John over the road ,growing up with my dad was experience for me and any friends we had. When you first knew us he could go away for 18 months at a time ,in those days a company would not fly you home you just stayed on ship until you came back to the UK. My dad grew up on the Isle of Arran and when he was eleven he had to go to school on the mainland .So on a Monday morning he would catch the first ferry to Ardrossan and stay on the mainland all week before catching the ferry back Fri

  6. This will be my last post in this thread but here’s a story. When I was a kid I played football and I was decent, got a few player of the year trophies, I was fuckin rapid and scored goals for fun. One game a lad called me a fuckin wog, it got to me. I can still picture the lad now. This happened quite a bit, and everytime it got to me, I had managers who did nothing. Growing up when I attended the wanderers matches I loved it, but I witnessed racism that hurt, I got it delivered to myself from home and away fans. That takes serious strength to continue to go to matche

  8. The EFL should issue a statement to say: "We deny Wigan Athletic permission to start the season. What is more we acknowledge and apologise for the mistake of our predecessors in opening the door to these smelly, scruffy cunts in 1978. They have added very little to Lancashire football or the wider game. It is a pleasure to have this opportunity to bin the bastards off. Believe."

  9. Britain was totally alone after France fell in June 1940, right up until the Germans invaded Russia in June 1941 forcing the Russians onto the Allied side after being in a cosy pact with Nazi Germany beforehand. Hitler said he didn't have any problem with Britain, regarded us as a basically Aryan country, and would let us keep our Empire if we stayed out of things in Europe (though how long that would remain the case is anyone's guess). Churchill told him to GTF. Then winning the Battle of Britain and sending bomber raids to Germany not only kept an Allied 'foothold' in Europe, but also showed

How about we all let her family grieve instead of hijacking it for some wankish movement that won’t serve any purpose whatsoever. This case is nothing to do with the wider issue whatsoever. It’s a completely isolated incident involving the murder of a young woman, not some dick groping a drunk lass on the tube. Theres a time and a place to address the wider issue and “educate our sons” etc. The aftermath of a gru

Brilliant sunshine in mid Winter - at 9am received just over $6K as my share of a football punters club kitty which we decided to shut down for the season after last nights results. At 11:48 I acquired my fourth grandson - Oliver. My daughters first child. At 12:12 I was informed that the worlds second biggest miner had decided to award me/us a 2 year service contract worth 7 digits. Walking football to look forward to tonight.

  14. Really has been a f**ker of a year, hasn't it? I lost my favourite aunt this year (non-COVID), despite the very best efforts of the amazing Bolton Hospice, which is partly why the wife and I raise funds for them. Just want to pass on my most sincere condolences to all of you who have lost loved ones, COVID or otherwise, this year. In most cases I'll not have seen or known your relatives, but I'm sure they'll be sorely missed. I did, however, know Bolty's dad from years back and he was a good man, well liked around Bolton. A silent toast tonight to all we've lost in 2020 and I h

  15. Big Wednesday fan here. Kieran Lee has been one hell of a player for us. I’d actually say he’s been our best player since we got relegated from the premier league in 2000. Only problem is that we ruined him by overplaying him when he was injured. Had a bad hip injury that nearly finished him. A central midfielder that can do everything and makes the game look easy. He’s a box to box player that links the play between midfield and attack. At his pomp around 2015-2018 was one of the best players in the championship and could easily of played in the premier league. Often got unnoticed by oth

  17. Vela was a whopper from day one, he just benefitted from the white tinted specs that so many of our recent 'heroes' have managed - the likes of Wheater, Madine etc. Utter shithouses devoid of any real talent, and a fanbase desperate to feel a connection to someone, anyone with even a sniff of personality was given the benefit of the doubt to disregard the almost complete lack of footballing talent as we slid down the leagues with barely a whimper.

  19. There’s an overwhelming sense that they’ve pulled the ladder up and are just keeping us happy and numb with free money. Thats generally a Labour tactic, which suggests to me that they are really treading water. If I’m honest, they had my sympathy and support - this is just off the scale and you can only prepare so much. But as soon as they let Cummings emerge from the shadows as the real power, they totally lost the plot. He fucked up and deserved to be potted, entirely for the message it would have sent. Instead, they chose to appear like the feeble, self-serving Tory cunts we

  20. This is my favourite wanderers picture ever. Had the pleasure of being presented the greater Manchester schoolboys cup trophy after winning it as Captain at the Reebok, I was in absolute awe of him. Shook my hand gave me my medal and said “cracking header that fella” before passing us the trophy. One of the best moments of my life.

  21. I posted this on social media a couple of days ago and can't remember if I put it on here, so apologies if I'm repeating myself again... Working parents want kids to go back to school because school closures directly impacts them, but teachers don’t want schools to open because covid spreading round their school directly impacts them. NHS staff want a full lockdown because treating sick covid patients directly impacts them, but business owners want to carry on as normal because lockdown directly impacts them. People with physical health problems want everyone

  22. Woah baby...Im not angry! You say "Thats where those boos come from. Misaligned cultural battles." Im saying they dont, and know for an absolute fact they dont. Ive been over why they dont. You called me narrow minded or whatever, but in that particular incident ive explained why those booes weren't just a kneejerk show of racism. As for the wider issue of racism, of course it exists, of course its still a huge problem. However the systematic race thing just doesnt stack up against the actual data, as birch explains a lot better than me. Of course people want equalit

  23. I know I’m starting to sound like a broken record but my god this isn’t that complicated. If everyone carries on piling into the pub and cuddling up to everyone they see then people are going to die. Might be 100. Might be 1000. Might be 10000. Might be 100000. But people will die. Just stay home for bit and stop moaning.

  27. Hi all, I posted a few weeks ago now about my dad who contracted covid whilst at the woodlands hospital. Sadly dad didn’t make it and passed away a couple of weeks ago. We got the opportunity to spend a couple of hours sat with dad in the couple of days leading up to his passing only due to rules being changed a couple of days previously. If anyone could see one of their loved ones fighting for each breath they certainly wouldn’t be taking social distancing anything but seriously. What was very clear was the absolute care the nhs staff gave to dad. When I arrived for my final visit,

  29. When I look back now 20 plus years on I find myself talking about Burnden with the fondness you might have for a grand parent or other relative that's passed on . It really was like losing a relative or close friend. The other thing I find quite Poignant about that video is seeing Kenneth Wolstenholme narrating and presenting it. Back in the early 2000's ( 2001 to be precise ) I was living and working in London and one evening jumped on the train up to White Hart Lane to watch us in the live monday night game - train was packed with lots of commuters and loads of spurs fans

And insinuating noncery at a 78 year old bloke, a man who buried his wife and daughter at 32 and 6 years old respectively and has more on two lines of his CV than Trump has during his entire sorry existence is very poor form imo.

One bloke thinks domestic cats are the prime cause of Covid (because a lion cught it in bronx zoo), Boris knows this, and he decided that letting a load of old people die would be better than culling all the cats because of the political unrest cat lovers would have caused in the UK, and Sage is funded by Cat food companies!

  45. When a bloke sets up a load of rules, and adds some smarmy “we’re all in it together” tagline, you expect that bloke to abide by his own rules. Especially when those rules meant I had to shout through a care home window to my confused and miserable dying mother just to say hello. When that bloke decides I have to do that, but he can drive 300 miles just because he doesn’t want Tesco delivering his shopping, I think he can fuck of. I don’t care if he voted leave or remain, he’s just taken a big shit on everyone who stuck to the game plan that HE fucking made. So fuck off.
