Re: The next manager

LOL. Sorry, thought it was his tactics that were to blame. Two things combine here for me, Barnetto. One is that our players, when hitting a 40 yard ball, are poor enough to either over-hit it by 20 yards, under-hit it by 10, or hit it to an opposing player. The second is that they've been told to ...

Mr couldn't hit a cows arse with a banjo has signed for Bradford City.

Poor Bradford.
Any chance you could narrow it down? You could be talking about every player we've had in years :o
I'm guessing at Bradford's own Clayton Donaldson

Re: The next manager

There's no magic formula and success once somewhere else, is no guarantee that someone can do well here. I'd be delighted if we gave Lee, SKD or Nolan a chance. Why not? 《Puts crack pipe down slowly》 If we're going to go for gritty, previous experience at this level type, we may as well stick with ...

Reports of David Lee being given the job by Football Ventures. Did wonder if his Wanderer podcast appearance was strategic. Thoughts?

Nope. I'll give you that the odd one out is Callaghan, and that Paul McCartney would also fit the category (other than not being a Labour leader)...

Re: What are you watching tonight?

Anyone else watch ITV's 'Wild Bill' starring Rob Lowe, last night. Absolute shite, I thought. I only found out that it's supposedly a 'comedy drama' this morning, which came as a surprise due to there not being a scintilla of comedy in it, and the drama aspect is just piss-poor with holes in the plo...

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

I must order stuff off of Amazon about six times a year at the most. A couple of months ago they charged an amount to my credit card. When I looked into it they'd somehow railroaded me into this 'Prime' racket that they run. Anyway, I took issue with them and they repaid the amount and sent me email...

We just have to trust the admins. If they think he's the best man, imagine the others.
You need to bear in mind, Barnetto, that it's the job of the administrators to find the best deal for the creditors, not the future of the club. That's where the utterly feckless EFL come in to it.

To my astonishment, my parents (81 and 78 years old) seem somewhat ambivalent towards the TV licence issue and simply attribute it to the fact that we're all living longer.

63 up. Loving it. The main parties were only in their 20s when I first started watching it. Each new series seems to come around a hell of a lot quicker as I'm getting older!
Tried to watch that but found it chiefly tedious :?
