  2. Trouble vs Wall!!!!!!!!??????

    I bet you and I probably share a lot of similar views on discipline, respect for authority and allowing police to police. When I say scrutinised, I don't mean witch hunt or even taking the starting position of he must show why it was justified... but where force is used I do believe it is appropriate to review to see if there are lessons to be learned. It's done where lethal force is used as far as I know. I simply think 'lethal' is a consequence and not really relevant. Take hitting 2 people with a baton with the same force; one man gets a headache for a few days, the next has osteoporosis or thin skull and suffers serious injuries. Why review one and not the other? That said, there are some comments and attitudes towards the police that I seriously do not share.

    Mr Gas clearly knows very, very little about UK income tax ! And Mr SL will without any doubt have tax advisers looking at this for him - you don't risk tax on £180m+ without checking the tax first.

    I'm not particularly bothered about past jobs for an England manager. I'm not sure what it proves. He is not working with the players to train and develop them; he's trying to create the best squad from the nation. Whether that's to fit a formation or a formation to suit the players, or built around a few key players that's the choice. It's a very different job to club management. A leader, who can inspire is a the largest part - unfortunately that is not Southgate.
  6. Trouble vs Wall!!!!!!!!??????

    I think we all agree that there is no need for grown men to be standing face to face with a line of police and yes the sensible thing to do was walk away and yes the individual in question clearly must accept a portion of blame for what happened, but I find the whole idea that a policeman can thump someone and for there to be no checks in place extremely concerning. It's fortune he didn't inflict more serious damage, fortune may not be on his side next time. He must be scrutinised for his actions, irrespective whether it's reported as a complaint, as a crime or dealt with via internal disciplinary procedures.
  7. Trouble vs Wall!!!!!!!!??????

    The officer is a servant of the public and should answer to the public for such actions. I am all for not getting offended on someone else's behalf, but when an Officer of the law strikes a member of the public those actions should always be scrutinised - sometimes the actions justified, othertimes not. A man in that role with a temper is very volatile, that's why he should be questioned over his actions to see if this officer has a temper.

    Why would a Guernsey resident contribute to the British healthcare or education system?
  9. Trouble vs Wall!!!!!!!!??????

    Just did a quick bit of research. The Police Reform Act 2002 at s.12 deals with complaints. There is a subsection for persons adversely affected but not on the receiving end (s.12(1)(b))... but s.12(4) discounts any complaints by persons adversely affected unless they were present or sufficiently nearby (s.12(4)(a)), or aggravated by being already known (s.12(4)(b). Seems they may be relying on this legislation to dismiss the complaint.

    ... Martyn Woolford scored for us, good signing it did not make him. Lee Tomlin also won us points last year. He came in, big contract, started promisingly but burned out very quickly and didn't really contribute on or off the pitch thereafter. It is really a dreadful signing, gotta kiss some frogs though
  11. Gary O'Neil

    Agreed. All in, it has been a pretty dreadful signing. Ineffective when played and barely fit (and I doubt ever really match fit). I seriously doubt SL is going to sanction another pension fund, though I thought that before GON came.

    He's just peacocking, telling whoever wins this week's euromillions "you got nothing"
  13. Josh Brownhill

    Resourcing, but it's a guess. Browhill's agent I imagine in August is simply minded for deals and cuts if transfer fees for his clients, whereas in our side too I expect MA would have been busy on incoming and outgoings.
  14. Are we now serious play off contenders?

    Whilst ordinarily I'd agree, it's worth taking a step back. In a week our players travelled to Norwich away and got a point, travelled back to Bristol and broke down a resilient Bolton trying to kill a game, they then travelled the breadth of of the country for the third time in a week to win in style at a ground we never get anything from. That is really, really impressive. It's early doors but it's starting to feel like it could be a good year. No predictions it will be yet.
  15. Steve Cotterill

    He had the freedom of the city 5 months after winning the fa cup. It's hardly relating to the legacy. So he turned down a few players, he asked for and got many more. For Diop if that happened he was conservative but there were many other unreasonable signings. We all saw the wages they paid by looking at the creditors list. I'm not buying Diop as him reigning in the owners. Totally appreciate and accept the owners bear most of the brunt. But he's not only a bystander.
