Re: Today I'm angry about.....

For me and I'm somewhat ashamed to admit this but I found lockdown fine - it wasn't fun or amazing but it was tolerable. What I've found since then is my mental health is all over the place (and I've never had any MH issues ever, not once) because of the constant stress of changes in rules, changes...

Re: Today I'm angry about.....

Just had a look at the report you linked to as well. I take it all back, it MUST be true what they state. I mean how could it be an inaccurate representation at all when they interviewed a whopping 14,276 people from a total population pool of c. 940 million over a total of 14 countries...... So I ...

Re: Today I'm angry about.....

Again that isn't true. Only two major countries have a higher percentage of people dissatisfied with their government's handling of the crisis than satisfied with it - shall we take a wild guess? Yep...you're right. Denmark, Germany, Netherlands, Italy, Australia, South Korea and Japan all have hug...

Re: Today I'm angry about.....

Every government in every country has "f*cked it up" if you listen to locals. Don't forget, our press love to have a pop regardless of who did what, whilst putting our neighbours in a better light. I work closely with colleagues from France, Italy, Germany, Switzerland, Sweden and the US and every o...

Re: Today I'm angry about.....

Don't disagree with most of that, however I would add a dose of reality to it: depending on who you listen to and who you believe, we either didn't go into lockdown soon enough, or it was too soon? We either came out of lock down too soon or too late? Closing schools and public transport is either t...

I know it won't come to fruition, but those top 2 Adidas kits are lovely.....

Iles has been saying for a while that a new kit is in the offing. Not only does it raise money but it’s another fresh start. And it’ll be a pleasure to get away from that godawful clipart shite from last year.
Good I think - although at least last year's was cheap as chips for t'kids....

New kit for 20-21 season - anyone know?

Does anyone know if we are getting a new kit for next season at all? I haven't heard any rumours or anything, but just noticed the club online shop are selling off last season's kits dirt cheap, so wonder if they are trying to shift stock ahead of new ones coming in? I wonder if we'll have a deal wi...

Re: General Chit Chat

Everyone's going on about the change of slogan: Christ, its not rocket science - surely anyone with even a fraction of common sense can understand the sentiment behind the message. People calling it out are just trying to score points again

Re: General Chit Chat

Don't kid yourself. I'm not defending the government at all - merely pointing out that its a terrible situation we find ourselves in, and rather than point scoring, sniping and offering hindsight-benefited advice is of no help whatsoever. Its a nightmare and we need to all work together, and any gov...

Agreed. From the minute this crisis descended upon us the world has been full or critics and experts who blame the people in charge and could have done better. Blah blah blah.

Re: General Chit Chat

This isn’t a plan. It’s not a way forward. It’s just passing of the buck. A vacuum of leadership. We can see real leaders in other nations take a clear stand and step up. We get a slogan that doesn’t even make sense and new advice that isn’t in any way clear, or appropriate to the situation we find...

Re: General Chit Chat

same here. When we moved they came up cheapest - although not by a lot. Can't say I'm impressed or not impressed by them to be completely honest. I have gas and I have eleccy, and I am paying a little less than I was before.No complaints
