Re: The Politics Thread

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...

Re: Independence Day.

I fear that I can smell the aroma of axes being ground. We here have a federal election tomorrow (Saturday) and the stink of extremism during the run up to it is also quite strong. Perhaps I am being misled by the local atmosphere. :shock:

Re: creeeeeeeekeeeeeet

Yes, Insano, what's left of my eyebrows rose to my bald patch when I read the result. Looking at the scores (which is all I have seen) seems to indicate a batsman's paradise or some pretty poor bowling and/or captaincy. Two centuries - one each - and decent scores from the other participants pointed...

Ruddy 'eck, TANGO, you had go back a bit to find this thread eh? I don't recall looking at that link when you posted it originally, but I thank you now.

Aye, time does fly, but as age creeps up on us it's carpe diem at each dawn.

Ah, Spotty, dear old Charlie Schulz. He was good. Mind you, I prefer Watterson with Calvin & Hobbes. I have a four volume set of all his syndicated cartoon strips. That's not to say that I don't like Peanuts, just that Calvin (aged 6) and his stuffed tiger seems to tickle my fancy just that teeny bi...

Ah, Macca, I couldn't agree more.

There would be no self respecting football club where I live that would countenance such weeds on their ground.

Re: Red Hats and One-eyed Snakes - the ups and downs of new management.

Whatever the result of this disgraceful brouhaha in which BWFC followers have found themselves involved I shall still wear proudly the as yet unworn BWFC jacket (it's autumn here) that my daughter bought for me as a birthday present and which was imported from the club shop. It was not cheap (she in...

Nor will I, Monty. Nevertheless there is a number of occasions from my youth that I cannot recall. I might add that none of them, as far as I can work out, involved dangling from shelves. :pissed:

Brockbank? Blimey, the only Brockbank I've ever come across was a wonderful cartoonist (car related) way back when. I don't know the lad, but perhaps it fits our predicament.

Re: Thieves, crooks and Villains. Aston Villa (H) 19.4.19

Did you just wish on a falling star TANGO? Or perhaps you laid out three dishes for Alfie to see which he ate (not approach) first? Maybe you took him on a walk up Winter Hill and became dizzy with the view and a touch of agoraphobia? :? I am resigned to League 1 next year, although I would like us ...

Re: Red Hats and One-eyed Snakes - the ups and downs of new management.

( From the Watford Observer ) Mr Bassini claimed he had arranged for due diligence to be completed before he purchased Watford in 2011 but accepted that he had not used accountants to perform any checks upon the club’s finances and confirmed he was not an accountant himself. Really? Blimey! I hope ...

Ruddy 'eck, Monty, That's a terrible result from a seemingly simple fall. Is osteoporosis involved? Kudos to your neighbour for helping you back home. It sounds like, from what you have described, that it was far from a pleasant triage/hospitalisation/recovery experience. My thoughts are with you, o...

Re: Hello everybody

You are an ex-Wiganer? Never mind, BWFC is indeed in a mess. Just like you I observe from afar and it's not pretty. It appears that the club's administration over the last few years has let down us followers/fans.
