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

Well these last few months I thought I'd seen everything then up pops a judge and human rights leeches and wham! Back comes a terrorist. To be honest if I saw a judge or a leech on fire I wouldn't unzip my fly just walk on by! The lesson is the state nor the legal system do not have the interests of...

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

Leaving out loyalty cards and online accounts (where you pretty much, de-facto give the retailer permission to record your details) what data do you think you're sharing (and with whom) in a credit / debit card transaction? Apparently it is not too difficult to clone card information via tap and go...

Re: New Manager Thread

I'm just going to sit quietly, not second guess what the guy is going to do, signings etc. and pray we have found a slightly more, in football style, adventurous version of Sam. The bloke seems okay and for next season at least I shall hold my tongue.

Re: Pies in administration

There were 2 loans recorded in last Accounts. £10m from parent co and £10.7m from ultimate parent...How have they paid those off whilst making a £7m/£9m per annum loss? The debt seems to have just evaporated.. Does the club own it's assets? just a thought. They wouldn't be assets if they didn't own...

Getting a trifle fed up of all the outlets refusing cash payments these days, I really think they are working to abolish it. There are some places that no way I would give card details to nor trust their contactless system to be 100% secure, surely they have to accept cash by law, isn't it legal te...

Re: Pies in administration

One thing I've never understood (and have no particular wish to either) is that supporters of Wigan RL and supporters of Wigan FC have a passionate hatred of each other. I'm quite sure that if we had an RL side then I'd support them as well as BWFC. https://www.independent.co.uk/sport/football/foot...

Quite simply, this is wrong, cash, for good or bad, stops these nobody retailers collecting your information and using it sometimes rather dubiously.

Must be some money out there if you can pay a DOF then employ a coach so effectively pay two people to do one mans job! We ain't Barca etc awash with cash, nor do we need a yes sir forelock tugging coach at this level.

Imagine having a government so awful that they have to be shamed into not letting kids go hungry. Its truly abysmal times. Disgusting, yes, but that's been happening forever.

2-3 years before I'll consider a holiday abroad again, BWFCi sums up the restricted, unless you just like pool lounging and the hotel bar service, with restrictions to a tee.

The Guide dogs association have labradors up for adoption who have been house trained but just failed to meet the very high standards to be a sight dog. I'm sure they'll have some young dogs that would get along great with Paddy. Might be worth rehoming your cat though, just to be on the safe side ...
