  1. Went through the exact same in the SOD through to early SC days. Me and Spudski still didn't agree on much about that time but he has been one of my favourite posters on here since and did look out for his comments when he was active. Hope he starts posting again soon.
  2. Perhaps he didn't get his ego massaged and the please don't leave responses he expected to his last tweet, so responds with this.
  3. It's a tough one balancing freedom of expression and speech and preventing wilful offence. I personally think the opposite - we should be obliged not to cause offence. The trouble is legislating for that is a nightmare, policing it worse and you'd likely inadvertently create offences where they weren't intended. It's arguably best left undisturbed then. But... There are times when there is such an obligation. Section 127 of the Communications Act does make it an offence to post grossly offensive comments on a public network.
  4. I'm rather surprised that people would want to stand up for the rights of any individual who makes the gesture of a group in history who wanted to deny rights, and indeed life, to anyone who was not their race. They were stupid. There is nothing funny in what they did. They attempted to cause utmost offence in the country they were visiting. I commend the FA for never wanting their support again. Not sure how the FA's previous poor decision making is relevant; they got this one bang on.
  5. Adam Matthews?
  6. That picture... so British in response and so brilliant. The man is an absolute hero. However, I can see why the authorities may be loathe to celebrate him (and I kinda get why). Police advice is no better put than 'bloody leg it'. Not sure the authorities would want to encourage people standing up to terrorists - it could make the armed police's job more difficult etc etc etc. Whilst what he did was absolutely admirable, full of courage, and the ultimate display of selflessness, we can see how close he came to being another victim. Think his friends may need to settle for donations and best wishes from strangers.
  7. If he really impresses, having spent as much as we have, we could make a decent profit without him playing in the League for us. If he's struggled to settle, I don't see us turning down many bids which meet or exceed what we paid in the hope he settles next year. Think we'd be more likely to cut our losses (if any) personally.
  8. Awwww, we have a fair few football league trophies to hand back
  9. This could become a classic
  10. Do you mind, some of us are trying to I just don't have the words to express how much I like this post! Edit Ha - caught by RR's own filter. I'm trying to say catch some z's
  11. I don't really see the value in "points earned per start" in any case. For instance the Fulham game where I'm disingenuously saying all he did was get one assist; in fact that could well have been his best ever game in our shirt, so I'm happy to contradict myself Simply I struggle with any analysis other than LT has been abject and shit for us since becoming permanent. Perhaps I came across as a patronising twerp - apologies for that, but I do think there are a number who are at pains to mitigate LT or blame LJ and perhaps I just picked up on your post and then ran with it inappropriately. As for Tammy - nah I just judge him by what he did on the pitch; same as I do LT
  12. A huge amount of context missing there Collier. 4 out of 5 of those wins highlighted were by margin's greater than one goal. To mark Tomlin up as earning 3 points for one assist in a four nil win (Fulham), one goal in a four nil win (Huddersfield) or even for 1 goal in a 2-0 victory (Ipswich) seems straw clutching. The straw clutching alarm goes in to overdrive however when you include Sheff Weds away as Tomlin earning us 1 point. Do you forget this game - he has a pen to put us 3-1 up, misses against the post, GON gets sent off from the rebound and we actually lost 3-2 so not only was it incorrect to give him a point gained there, even if we did draw, it would be laughable to suggest his contribution was positive anyway which is why I hate these 'points contributed' stats so much.
  13. Pretty pleased to see that Lee Tomlin is off. He'll probably be good for a year whilst he feels something to prove and then revert to 'a more expensive Neil Kilkenny' afterwards. Not even sure I would acknowledge him on his return. Great for 6 months, divisive and negative for 12.
  14. It's still only locally broadcast isn't it? I think that particular channel will be 'made in Manchester in the north west for instance. I think these channels came in to existence because of something political, like Ofcom dedicating radio waves to local stations to bring back 'the community'.
  15. Doubt it - he'd have probably played Tammy left wing like he did with Chris Wood
