  1. I'd prefer JDB coming on as a sub.From memory, I'd say that JDB is at his best coming on for the last 25 or 30 minutes against tired legs.
  2. That's true, my £40000, wasn't accurate (I did say I'm an amateur) I think that the backdating up to three years of unused allowance would likely come in handy.
  3. https://www.telegraph.co.uk/financial-services/pensions-advice-service/how-much-can-i-pay-into-pension/ Better than I thought infact. @Sweep
  4. I believe that it's max contribution of £40000 per financial year, but I think I've read that you can go back upto 2 years and add any allowance that wasn't used from those years. I'm an amateur so could be wrong.
  5. If you put that £80000 into your pension, it would actually be £100000 going in due to 20% tax relief, even if you're a basic rate tax payer, and considerably more if you pay tax at the higher rate. How long it is until you plan to retire would be crucial, as the money would no longer be accessible to you until retirement.
  6. I think I saw the pic of Baccus wearing the blue bib a day or two ago, maybe on here?
  7. For me this is very positive news. Obviously there have been issues previously with JDB's fitness, and I'd be surprised if this hasn't been reflected in the value of his contract. When fit this guy totally transforms our attack, particularly when he comes on as a sub. Interesting that the article states that his contract is initially for one year, I wonder if a certain number of appearances trigger an extension?
  8. He wasn't getting games as he didnt fit in our formation, why would he want to stay?
  9. I must admit I've always wondered if Howard's mob were actually behind the Wigan takeover. He/they came on here claiming to represent a potential Bahraini takeover of BWFC, fast forward 18 months or so and Bahrainis take over at Wigan. Maybe we dodged a bullet.
  10. I read it as £750k a year.
  11. You're doing a sterling job Matty. I don't doubt that you still do a great report win, lose or draw. I'm just less likely to read it if its the latter 🙂
  12. Very true. I can't actually be certain that Matty even posts on this thread if we lose 😀
  13. Cheers Matty, thanks for your work in compiling these posts. It's always interesting to see the other fans perspective.
  14. Beck the loanee to miss out. Feel sorry for the lad but it's not a surprise.
  15. And is that Alice Cooper I can see just above the coppers arm lock?
  16. I was at all eight as well. Some of the best days and nights as a Bolton fan, even better than the europe trips in my opinion.
  17. Rivaldo is just firing up the fax machine...
  18. And we'd be likely to lose more than that in revenue, even if we lost only a few folk through the turnstiles due to disrupting kick-off times I reckon.
  19. CEO Neil Hart was on GMR a couple of weeks ago and said that having the floodlights on costs us about £500 a game, so it wouldn't be worthwhile for us to change kick off time.
  20. Thank fuck. BBC showing this line up.
  21. It's always clear in North Upper, all the more so on Saturday due to the volume being turned down, it should be left at that level in my opinion. I went in South Lower for the fund raiser for Gethins mum and the din from the PA was shocking, couldn't make out a single word that was said.
  22. According to the RBS website the non-sterling transaction fee is 2.7% on the basic card, this applies to cash withdrawals and card purchases. They'll no doubt give you a poor exchange rate also. Compared to 0.5% transaction fee and the live rate for the free version of the Currensea card and you could make significant savings.
  23. I agree, never knew LH was such a hotbed of royalists 🙂. Sent you a PM earlier G.
  24. Got a Currensea card before we went away a couple of weeks ago. Works a treat, it's a Mastercard and can be linked with your bank so doesn't need loading with money. Can be used as Contactless or/and chip and PIN, controllable by app and the daily spend limit can be adjusted between £0 and £5000, also you can change your li key bank card. Pay in euros and the transaction fee on the free, basic card is 0.5%, the exchange rate is the current live rate. A £25 annual gets you the live rate and and no commission, very happy with the way it worked out.
  25. I was curious and searched this a couple of days ago. It's a collaboration between Molson Coors and La Sagra who are a Madrid based brewer. It didn't exist before lockdown apparently and is brewed in the UK by Coors. I haven't tried it yet but it must have something about it to have conquered the world so quickly.
