Re: creeeeeeeekeeeeeet

For me, Enoch, I'm ever so glad that the alteration of the petticoat revolution did not occur.

Also for me, the altar of cricket is The Ashes. :pray: :)

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

Harry and Bruce, I'm with Spotty on this. I interpret his comment to mean "why publish it when it gives the reader no information" - it's nothing to do with the circumstance of the tragedy, just a stupid image manipulation to avoid showing the terrible image that lies behind it.

Re: So what turns you on???

Them were the days, Hoboh! I was once the president of a local CB club but, when I finally got around to getting my first amateur (Novice) licence, I declined to stand again and then left the CB fraternity for good. Instead of a sort of clandestine group - it was illegal here in those days - it turn...

Re: So what turns you on???

So, for me, ...and amateur radio have been my hobby interests. Are you one of the elite who send each other custom made postcards once you've latched onto a mysterious signal for three or four seconds? In a sense, Spotty, but the collection of QSL cards has never been my aim any more than it has be...

Re: So what turns you on???

Oy, Hoboh! You are obviously a purloiner of other peoples' ideas. My father's first car was a Holden which the family agreed to call "Henrietta" (circa 1957). It was shortened quickly to "The Hen". Since then I have owned many vehicles of varying vintages but, perhaps oddly, I don't recall anointing...

Re: Free Speech....and all that stuff...

Because, TANGO, there's no interest in a chap in Farnworth and another in Blaxland extolling the virtues of meals such as a meat and three veg. ;)

Re: Administration and recovery

TBF there's no quotes so it would be hard to prove the NDA has been broken. And given Football Ventures are also named, let's not go defenestrating babies with bathwater. Sorry, DSb, I haven't been on the site for a couple of days. You did set me agiggling with that statement though. Does that mean...

Re: Tonight's Football

I don't agree with some of the comments here on women's football. There's an old saying that "From little things big things grow". I am delighted to see women playing sport in the public arena as well as in almost anonymous local competitions. Is not the latter the hunting ground for male football t...

Re: Administration and recovery

Well, I am surprised. I know that it feels a long time for us fans/supporters/faithful, but it seems to me that the administrators are actually rattling along under full steam. If they are already at the stage of isolating prospective purchasers of the club then they must have done a decent forensic...

Re: Administration and recovery

Emotionally, I agree (and not just for selfish reasons: it’s a bar to those who might rescue any clubs in distress). But I also see why they did it - to stop clubs doing what Leicester and Leeds did in the past, running up debts then shedding them via punishment-free bankruptcy. I don’t know what t...

Re: The Politics Thread

What the heck has someone's ignorance in basic geography got to do with racism? Mind you, with 79% of the people surveyed unable to find China on a map does raise questions about the group interviewed. I find it hard to believe that such a percentage of the overall population are so parochial as to ...

Re: Administration and recovery

I'm puzzled by the situation in which we now find ourselves. If the EFL still penalises the club for its past fiscal demeanour (i.e. its previous owners) why should that devolve to a new owner who has satisfied all debts, including the tax man, and shown the ability to now support the financial part...

I cannot comment on the first bit, Spotty, as I don't know your local rules. For instance, I'm not an Australian citizen but am what is termed a Permanent Resident. I am, however, given the privileges accorded to natural or naturalised citizens. Of course there is one down side; should I commit a he...
