  1. The title of this thread had me go all American for a minute and thinking it was an RIP thread.....
  2. I told Tom letting LJ sort out the code for the upgrade was a mistake......
  3. I’m sure that’s who I used last time I moved, a mad woman who chain smoked, didn’t suffer idiots and had an office as untidy as mine..... but she sorted it all and we got the whole thing done in record time. Quite nice to deal with someone a bit eccentric who did what they said they would, when they said, even if she did have to hunt through piles of paperwork when documents needed signing.
  4. A winner, someone who backs his players in public, someone who entertains when he can, but shuts up shop when necessary. Someone with a shrewd eye for a player, who will build a structure and framework that players from the academy, reserves and first team can move between levels within the club and understand what is expected of them. Someone who appreciates flair, can manage the odd Maverick, will entertain and restore some bloody enjoyment to watching City..... Someone who will stand his ground and not be dictated to by the Chairman, owner or Mark Ashton - whilst working with them.
  5. It’s something like: EFL: “Have you ever been committed of a crime, apart from parking and speeding tickets ?” Dodgy Owner with a past shadier than a ring of willow trees: “No, not me” EFL: “That’s fine, you’ve passed with flying colours”
  6. As long as Hamilton finishes down the field again next week...... didn’t see it, listened on the radio and it sounded a decent race.
  7. It’s all relative, the ‘new’ normal big will just be the old normal big, but with a smaller salary.....
  8. Agree with this, what LJ seemed to fail most spectacularly in, was getting a style of play, to ensure the teams from the youngest academy team to the first team played in a way that allowed players to be developed to move almost seamlessly from team to team. That doesn’t mean you can’t have some versatile players who can fill in other positions if necessary, it doesn’t mean you have to stifle flair, but it does mean some sort of structure and I could never detect that - if it is there, it’s no obvious, as so many players were like square pegs in round holes.
  9. I wouldn’t say the football, especially at home, has been enjoyable for at least two years. It was time to go, he appeared out of his depth. If we have to be a mid table championship team, then at least I’d like it to hold some excitement and entertainment. That said, I have no personal animosity towards the guy and wish him well in whatever he does in the future.
  10. Some great memories and posts on this thread, this point resonates with me, I can remember spending 4 days at an event and only eating once - because I thought I should have something..... Some of these posts are fairly Glastonbury specific, but many can relate to general feeling about festivals, one of my favourite, smaller festivals is Fairport Convention's Cropredy, they done some festival merch this year, even though it's not going ahead.
  11. Some of the classics here. https://www.quotes.net/movies/drop_the_dead_donkey_101919 What a well written series and they refilled so bits as the news changed, I have never been a huge telly watcher, but this was one series I always tuned in for.
  12. I went to see the stage show - twice, that was as good as the TV series, if not better. My list - hmmm, difficult isn't it. Monty Python's Flying Circus Drop the Dead Donkey Yes Minister League of Gentlemen Blackadder And that leave some good shows not even in the top 5.... Those on the edge.. Father Ted, Spike Milligans' Q series, Red Dwarf and one that is a gentle piss take of British gentry... To the Manor Born
  13. The Stevenage Chairman was very eloquent and accepting, but made the point the league could have accommodated an extra team for a season.
  14. Not have relegation from the league. It could have worked, if a club that has spent £3M on its academy (which it would lose after 2 years in non-league) and is well run suggests it can't survive in non-league, but could in the league, it seems wrong to relegate them - any of them. He was suggesting that the streaming revenue will be enough for survival, without that, it could be enough to finish them.
  15. Stevenage Chairman on the radio earlier, he doubts they will survive dropping down to non-league, he did also say he didn't think any league club would, with no spectators, as the National League won't have any streaming revenue. They might just get a lifeline if Macclesfield get sanctions, but it's a nonsense to get relegated with a game in hand + 10 games left, whilst the playoffs happen.
