  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. My uncle lost his battle to this in Royal Bolton this morning, so he will be one of today’s numbers. last rites over the phone held by a nurse with no family there. made an exception yesterday evening and allowed my Aunt in for a short while to say goodbye , she was so covered up and him in such a way will never know if he knew, but my aunt said he did and took comfort from it. None of his kids have seen him since last Thursday and can’t even be with their mum now. Not writing this for sympathy, very few know me and I know most on here are decent enough without needing

  4. I’ve sat with my mum who is slipping away, literally breathing her last today. She idolises the Queen, and whilst she didn’t in all likelihood hear that, I know she would have loved every single word. When she said ‘we’ll meet again’ I lost it and don’t think I’ll recover for a long time. Lost.

  5. 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.

  7. 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.

  8. 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

  13. 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."

  14. 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

  19. Disappointed a few I know but how would you be on a day like today? 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. Then I find out some bitter and twisted, intellectually challenged no mark from

  21. Frequent lurker, very seldom post but just to add a personal touch to this. My dad currently resides at the woodlands in Little Hulton. He is 80 and suffers from Alzheimer’s hence where he is. Massive Wanderer in his day and brought my brother and I up that way, not quite sure we thank him for that. Anyhow, received a call on Tuesday advising dad had symptoms along with the news others on his ward had tested positive. On Thursday we were told dad had tested positive. We haven’t seen dad for 6 weeks as the home locked down early. the staff in the home have been amazing , keeping

  23. Right end of week NHS update. We're now basically on a war footing. Amazing how such a big organisation has managed to mobilise so quickly. Focus has immediately turned to CV in place of non urgent care. People from all quarters volunteering to help where they can - including non clinicians being trained up to perform some safe clinical procedures (like blood pressure for example), to free up staff with other skills to use them more effectively. Amazing to see it all come together. Just hoping we can cope with demand from the critically ill as things progress.

  26. 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.

  28. 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

  30. From what I can see, and I know fuck all about dealing with pandemics, the only mistake the govt. have made is the lack of decent PPE. Beyond that, they are dealing with a nightmare. They have managed to pay half the population a decent wage, whilst asking for fuck all in return apart from watching box sets and drinking. Theyve built a 4,000 bed hospital in a week or so. They did that in China and people were wanking themselves to the salt. They are being transparent about their strategy, and it seems to be doing ok in comparison to most other countries. All whilst hav

  31. Thanks Casino - I really appreciate that - but my absolute faith in humanity and the people of Bolton has been restored. Went to a garage (which shall remain nameless) and told them what had happened. They printed out some new ones and told me they were on the house and to keep up the good work. I'm absolutely chuffed to bits - the worst and the best in people - all in one shift! 🙂 👍👍👍

  32. Top top guy Milner. Little story he had hamstring problems at City, niggly ones, so we spent a lot of time together, on the physio and rehab sessions. Vincent Kompany is the player I’ve spent the most time with, but with Milner he had these injuries and we developed a friendship out of work because of the graft we put in together. He was one of the few players that came to my wedding doo back in the UK, when he went to Liverpool I was gutted he said he’d stay in touch but you hear that with everyone, when our sprog came along, we got A visit and present from him and his other half, every y

  35. 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.

  38. 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,
