  1. My thoughts too. In a way, it illustrates the difficulties of having decent cover for each position. Difficult keeping young, ambitious players as first reserve. They want to play.
  2. Now there's a name made for the Blue Few!
  3. It's not often I say this, but it's great we have so many accountants here! This thread is extremely interesting reading. (And no, I'm not being sarky)
  4. We'll Keep The Red Flag Flying High (Don't hear that one often enough these days)
  5. Shouldn't you be changing your user name to Southvilleoldie?
  6. I think when LJ referred to disruptive elements in the dressing room having left, it was obvious about whom the remark was aimed. His rapid exits from numerous other clubs tell the same tale. I think he's just one of those people who are naturally bolshy and don't react well to management.
  7. You should've enclosed a packet of throat lozenges. He always sounds like he needs them.
  8. Confirms what we know. We always seem to go a bit flat at the start of the second half.
  9. Very true but the BBC can't sack Alan Sugar as he isn't an employee and won't have signed the same terms and conditions in a contract of direct employment as DB did. All they could have done is to decommission the Apprentice - which might be difficult given the ongoing contract with the production company who make it - or insist they change Sugar for some other mogul, which could also be difficult depending on the contract the production company have with Sugar. The fact that they are inconsistent doesn't really have any bearing on this case.
  10. Very true, Moz. At the same time social media is also full of meatheads going "you can't call a spade a spade nowadays" and "the joke was funny" [It wasn't. On any level]. Not even as a racist joke.] My personal theory is he meant to send it to a mate, but accidentally tweeted it - possibly under the influence of a fair few cans. We'll never know, but my take home point is that a BBC underling would be sacked for tweeting that. Why should a celeb be treated differently? Even if he seems like a "nice bloke".
  11. I guess we're all making assumptions - either that it was an innocent accident or a deliberately vile joke. We cannot know definitively. I'm not a royalist, but I think it's a pretty awful "joke" to post anyway - comparing a new-born baby to a chimp. Hardly the baby's fault he's born into a "circus" of sycophancy. I was always a fan of Danny's and agree he has no previous: quite the reverse actually. But age and illness and hanging around with Millwall fans can do strange things to guys, so who really knows. I think we can agree that it was a pretty catastrophic error of judgement to send that tweet. It would probably have gone down a treat if shared privately with Big Baz at the Blue Anchor in Bermondsey, but putting it out to the world when you're a well-known broadcaster is idiotic, whatever the motive. I would have been sacked if I'd done it when I worked for the BBC, so I'm not surprised Baker has been.
  12. I realise he has a "thing" about the PG Tips chimps, but I've not seen proof from anyone that he has tweeted a picture of a baby chimp when anyone else's baby has been in the news. If he has, fair enough. If not, I'm skeptical that he "failed to consider" how this picture would be interpreted in this case.
  13. 21 years too late to make the big money, Evil Twin. https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/snooker/48185391
  14. He's a Millwall fan, M. Which makes me think of the old adage "If you lie down with dogs you get fleas".
  15. So did he publish pictures of a posh couple with a baby chimp when William had his kids?
