  1. All their woes are down to the tax dodger, the Duke of Guernsey, the rosy cheeked lady garden. Yep, that's their standard insults Mind you, the wally with the watch is doing his best to put them out of business. Hello Pikeys (we know you're there) keep 'em coming
  2. Not so. https://www.theguardian.com/society/2020/apr/05/excel-owner-scraps-all-fees-for-nhs-to-use-nightingale-field-hospital
  3. Yep, a nothing article. A bit like the interview 20man did with Masters yesterday - no searching questions at all, 2 or 3 minutes of nothing. Masters said he left because, as a director, he wouldn't sign off the accounts, that was an opening for 20man to dig into that but he didn't. It was unusual for 20man to miss an opportunity like that, he'd normally be all over it. Adblock sorts that out. https://adblockplus.org/
  4. PFA saying that if 30% is taken from EPL footballers the cumulative effect is less tax paid to the Government, which isn't a good idea at this time. As an aside Taylor gets 2m a year for his job at the PFA...
  5. Never heard it before - same as many others I would think, from 15:07; https://www.bbc.co.uk/sounds/play/live:bbc_radio_bristol
  6. Agreed - its was as if he just didn't want to hear what the bloke had to say. I bloody did and I would think a load of Pikeys would as well (not as many as those with their heads in the sand though).
  7. Ken Masters (the director suspended and then resigned) has just been on radio interviewed by 20man. Says he has no idea why he was suspended and had to resign as he wouldn't sign off the accounts. Unfortunately it was a very weak interview by 20man and he didn't ask why - wasted opportunity, just wanted to know what the bloke would advise the next supporters club director in terms of what the job entails. KM started to say that a director can be held personally responsible and 20man interrupted him. Whole thing was about 2 minutes. He should have pressed KM to dig the dirt and find out exactly why he wouldn't sign off the accounts.
  8. It isn't guaranteed. That would be the normal wording but the wording in note 1 is that "Mr. Hani Al Qadi has confirmed his intention to maintain support..."
  9. If a director/board is found to have acted dishonestly or fraudulently they can be just as liable as anyone else. There are those, allegedly, that say their CEO (can't remember his name) should be wary being the only director other than Wally. And, allegedly, there are those that say anyone should be double wary if invited onto the board. Of course, I don't subscribe to those views and regard them as complete nonsense.
  10. I hope so too..... but 10k is to be expected. France have currently lost 5387 as of yesterday so they are probably on course for 10k. I hate to think what the fatalities in Italy will be.
  11. Nothing to do with Wally, its just to make a pittance for the club - a very poor City Foundation. I suppose its like the City Trust & Supporters Club and the Foundation having a dig at the board (on a much smaller scale of course).
  12. I think we are much closer to the French trajectory and they are now (hopefully) starting to turn the corner. We are expected to reach peak in 7-9 days - next weekend.
  13. Number of cases and deaths As of 9am on 3 April 2020, 173,784 people have been tested, of which 38,168 were confirmed positive. As of 5pm on 2 April 2020, of those hospitalised in the UK who tested positive for coronavirus, 3,605 have died.
  14. Christopher Ecclestone just read that on Radio 5. Marvellous.
  15. This will make a few on here happy; https://www.parliament.uk/business/committees/committees-a-z/commons-select/digital-culture-media-and-sport-committee/news/chair-comments-windfall-tax-premier-league-19-21/
  16. Time will tell. I can see him getting a big money move - if he wants it. And I can see him playing for England in the not too distant future if he gets his head down and plays to his potential - it'll be extremely hard not to select him if so. This will all die down once football starts up again.
  17. Very true (which I overlooked...Doh !) But still a sizeable saving for a club with say 30 professionals on the books and would show some moral fortitude and empathy with non playing staff.
  18. I read on here somewhere, with some evidence, that the government have agreed that footballers are not working from home as their "work" is on a match day - rightly or wrongly that was the outcome apparently. They can therefore technically be on furlough. I have no idea of contractual situations and legalities but I don't see why they should be treated differently. As an aside, people are saying that staff get 80% of their salary on furlough from the government which is incorrect as I understand it. The company gets the 80% to pay staff and there is nothing stopping them topping it up with the other 20% if they wish/can afford it.
  19. They had another lad from Cotham as well just before that time, can't remember his name. But they were very active in Bristol at that time - while City were very active in Scotland. Having said that, there were four or five lads from the Bristol Schools team that signed for City (one being Gary Collier).
  20. Did the police say they couldn't contact him ? Didn't know that. Not sure why they would tbh.
  21. A 70 year old fox. Behave yourself.
  22. I've not seen it reported anywhere that he was under the influence - stand to be corrected. He didn't "crash" into two cars (or wrote any off which was what I actually said), he reversed into one denting a bumper and breaking a light, and nudged another. He left the scene after giving his details and saying he would pay for any damage. Or am I getting confused ? (I don't read any red tops or the daily mail btw so maybe I'm not that well informed)
  23. I'm sure that will happen. But it won't stop some slagging them off for not informing everyone of their intentions.
  24. I'm sure that it won't damage his career at all. He was a bit stupid and what he did was morally wrong, possibly legally wrong in this climate. But he wasn't drunk, didn't write off a car or two, or smash a car into a tree, then ran away - like some previous footballers did with no damage to their careers. Some have gone inside and still have careers when they got out.
