I think with the Brexit thing you might be mixing him up with me Alcazar.
To be strictly accurate I didn’t say everyone that voted Brexit was racist.
I said that everyone who is racist voted Brexit. An important distinction.
You should know by now MK alcy doesn’t do distinction, just propaganda.
The players who may become involved in this league, surely they will need to have new contracts drawn up to play in it? They should refuse to sign them and show the fans some real support, also can’t the PFA instruct or at least strongly advise it’s members not to play in this league, the more pressure on these greedy bastards the better IMO.
Gartside was an early example, the foreign owners run their franchises abroad because the no relegation or promotion card is not in play there. There are more foreign owners now Ferrite, don’t split hairs over a major point in all this, you know where the danger lies with foreign owners.
If you wonder why your bulldog keeps coughing Big Joke it’s because you keep feeding him cigars, dumbarse. 😜
Painted the garden bench and didn’t see any of the funeral thank goodness, Mrs IA sat and watched, she likes all the pageantry of this stuff, I resisted the option of buying her popcorn, we both respect each other’s views. Noticed today they trotted out the viewing figure comparisons in the paper, 13.6 million for Saturday against 31 million for Diana’s funeral. Just goes to show the older you get the less relevant you become.
I will keep banging on about foreign owners Ferrite because they have brought the franchise mentality into our game bigtime. Wonder how many times the no relegation no promotion model has been floated by these owners to the Premier league over recent times?, indeed the late Phil Gartside wanted it applied when he was Bolton chairman back in the day. Take a look at what happened financially to Bolton and you can see why, being ring fenced by the Premier league’s wealth would have been right up the mismanagement street of his club. These foreign owners see promotion and relegation as a threat to future profits, whether their clubs have a poor season or not, no relegation means poorly run clubs get guaranteed money season after season. Without promotion or relegation the game is dead, where is the ambition, the desire to get better, to push a club on to improve? What about the fans?, yeah funny that, fans who were the reason our national game took off in the first place. Plus isn’t the magic of a European night against the likes of Madrid, Barcelona, Juventus etc all about the thrill of achieving a top four finish, in the hope you draw them in next season’s competition, not playing them twice a year regular as clockwork season after season, how is that special. This wants strangling at birth, it’s maybe posturing anyway to get more power in the current set up but either way either kick it into touch or fuck them all off. No mercy, the national structure of our game and it’s traditions are more under threat then ever with this greedy self indulgent bullshit.
Absolutely Ferrite, as soon as the Premier league got the green light this was the next obvious step, the increase in foreign ownership doesn’t help, the interest in the history and tradition of our national game is lost on them. The game became professional because people wanted to pay to see decent football on a regular basis after a hard week at work. These people became known as fans as more clubs in more towns and cities set up and turned professional. The game was formed by the people for the people to enjoy and what a wonderful thing it became, all to be torn away now by people who don’t care about fans and tradition just MONEY MONEY MONEY. Abba were right all along. Let these clubs piss off and the rest of football disown them.

I think we’ll finish 22nd which is just enough this season. I see nothing other than relegation next season.
This of course is before a single player has been released at the end of May or a single new player signed before next season, wonderful foresight. However I totally respect your right to an opinion. ( FFS I’m starting to sound like Buck’s ) 😂
Guys correct me if i’m wrong but I presume none of you on here either played or trained professionally?,if not then the levels of fitness and expectancy levels on you all playing local league stuff is light years away from the professional game. Training methods are better now then back in the day but the game is much faster paced and certainly over 90 minutes the continued speed of the game over that period compared to 40 years back is considerable. Just saying, I relise the injuries and particlarly hamstring problems are many but I believe its to do with the speed levels expected of every player these days, hamstring injuries have always been the achilles heel ( pardon the pun ) of the quick player. The fact some of you played Saturday then Sunday after sustaining a knock the day before, be it a deadleg or a slight pull somewhere, is totally irrelevant when comparing like for like to what the professional game demands today when playing twice a week. The standards fitness wise and sustainability wise are massive now compared to 40 years back IMO.
Lets be right about this, VanVeen became a lot more hard working and less sulky under Hurst, I always believe Hurst laid it on the line to VanVeen about what he wanted from him but fair play to the player for responding, maybe he realised he had to finally pull his finger out and graft and not rely on the bit of magic he sometimes produced that had his admirers salivating. Fair play to both parties for doing the right thing all round.
Didn’t Cox reckon Eisa would be missing again? Whatever if Taft plays, which the way he spoke after the game he might be ok and with Bedeau finding some decent form then a point should be within our grasp. Personally I would take a point away from home all day long, it’s the home form and lack of intent to get forward and make chances that is disappointing but a point tonight would do me.
Ha ha, she responds in kind, good little pupil, carry on.
A BS clone, FFS 🙄
It was nice seeing Shirley and her threes pals attempt to, what was it, ” break the mould of party politics ” it just never caught on at the time with a large return of seats but the reason why UKIP, Farage and his cronies got a platform for shouting the odds later on and getting some reward, certainly in splitting the vote of the two major parties.

The joke is some of us writing one line, you need seven to reply. 😂
Cheers Betty, shame your still an x short from a tin of Australian lager. 🍻
Well done the EFL for showing respect to our great Royal Family and this country. It’s an absolute bloody disgrace that the Premier League have not followed suit! Those pampered prima donna brats could learn a thing or two from the humility of Philip and others who have given this country their all in wartime and peacetime! They are probably run by the same kind of libtard who infects this forum and hate this country! They show more respect to BLM Marxists and race baiters over our Royalty!
What a sad person you are, trying to turn a thread being amicably discussed into an attempt to whip up hatred, you shoud be ashamed of youself.

Forest green sack the manager with Scunny next game up and having not won in 6, he must be gutted.
Maybe he head butted the Chairman after watching that dopey twat in a black and white shirt at the weekend. 😂😂😂
Unfortunately it’s the lot of the small town club which occurs at many clubs like ours up and down the land, it’s also the reason why we operate most of the time between leagues 1 & 2 with the odd Championship flirtation. No doubt some bright spark will come on and say we should match any offer from Celtic to show our true ambition, then later on start moaning about the debt we find ourselves in.
Completely agree with you Ferrite, totally unnecessary but unfortunately our moral compass is dictated to us by the people in authority of the EFL or maybe it’s through government insistence, either way we shall probably never be fully told who requires this but it’s not for me. Freedom of choice, really!!!!
As far as the debt is concerned the best we can hope for is for Mr Swann to leave us debt free when he eventually decides he’s had enough. This is a big ask but if he recognises that it’s been his ambition and his business model that has put us in this debt then you would think any genuine person would hold his hands up, take it on the chin and sort this out properly before walking away. You only have to look down the M180 and see the response of fans to a chairman who appears to be insisting that every penny of his own money he put into GTFC is paid back before any deal with new owners is fully processed. Some business men are good honest genuine sorts, some are not, we will have to just sit back and wait to see which way Mr Swann eventually jumps.

Cracking episode of Midsomer tonight, never twigged it would be the snooty snotty bird with a high opinion of herself that did it. Well I never, quite appropriate.
Can’t wait to watch Midsomer Murders tonight, take my mind off all this stuff about death that’s been all over the media the last few days. 😜
I reckon UTI and Awaywego haven’t got a decent wet stone between them. 😂
Well les if you are going to say we should have offered him something sooner I would suggest Dawson senior, a wily old former player who is still involved professionally in the game at a reasonably high level, would have said, ” just wait and see son something bigger and better may come along for you “. Also I’m sure Andy and his lad will have had plenty of input from other people in the game that things were going to probably take off for Joey in a bigger way if he continued his progress. Why not wait, go to a bigger set up with better coaches and more money in your back pocket as a result. The old no brainer really.
On dear, Big Joke’s big dog is really taking him on some very long walks just now, very sad.😞😴
I would rather listen to the people on Gogglebox then the royals because they are ordinary people giving honest opinions on TV programmes whether we agree with them or not. I also find a few of them very amusing wheras the royals are not ordinary people who have never lived in the real world ( bit of national service being the exception but most of that is mapped out for them) and are a total irrelevance to our nation. We don’t need them, they are out dated, expensive to run and offer no value for money to the nation. The lands they aquired throughout history with brutality and force of arms belong to the nation not them, they should be returned to the people, the monarchy done away with and the money we waste on them put back into the treasury for projects serving the people. Visitors will still come and look at all the castles and towers and history surrounding them but we as a nation can move forward as a republic and better serve it’s people as a result. The monarchy should end with the death of the queen and then at last we can begin to emerge as a proper modern-day country striving to achieve more and not held back by establishment and history. Viva la revolution.
