  1. Yes. This^ I personally don’t think we will be in any relegation trouble. However until clubs start trading in earnest a bookmakers price is a bit of a joke. City appear to have three maybe four players who are attracting attention but we also have U23 side that made a final. A long long way to go before the season even starts.
  2. Agreed! That Orr was dreadful for us.
  3. The cause of the lockdown was not related to monetary policy, it was in view of an incurable virus which had spread, monetary policy was effectively dictated by that at the time. The unfortunate thing is that hindsight quarter backing is relatively easy in what we know now and while an effective vaccine was created. The unfortunate thing for me personally and for a lot in the area is that we lost friends early without any known exacerbating conditions, which was part of the issue. Most people don’t know they have underlying conditions, if they did we would have a lot less heart attacks etc etc etc. Again I know nothing of Bradley Orr and don’t care to, but as you say so many deaths, but government/s policy was dictated by what was known at the time.
  4. Cutting interest rates is all very well, but if everyone is sitting at home not working it would not have ended well for the many with limited/no savings to sustain themselves for an extended period during an epidemic, which no one knew when would end. As you say Central Bank”S” effectively came to a decision based upon G7 health information. Thus enabling people to stay at home to not spread a virus that there was no cure for at the time. The British Government reluctantly followed suit after the Prime Minister was hospitalized and close to death with no cure available. Interest rate cuts at that time would have achieved nothing to control a virus that had no effective cure at the time.
  5. Inflation is largely a supply and demand issue. Pent up demand released after lockdown and the inability for supply to be filled as global trade routes are strangled and suppliers also fail to fulfill the demand will force up inflation. Oil/energy supply is also strangled as the war continues but demand stays the same or increases thus prices rise and this adds fuel to the fire of inflationary pressure. Which is one of the greater Russian strategies in the invasion of Ukraine. People having the money to pay their bills is government intervention to keep the country stable, which is what government does. If people had no money to pay bills due to a national health emergency this would create civil unrest and lead to destabilizing influences and probably rioting on the streets. Life sucks for some right now but the alternative was far worse! As far as Bradley Orr is concerned I have no clue and have no intention to read or listen to anything on the subject.

    RIP Tinners

    So sorry to read this. I can remember him at so many away games. We Never got beyond nodding terms but I had a great deal of respect for the guy as he was always there. Condolences to friends and family!
  7. I agree that pitch invasions are not a new phenomena. However for many years they have become a lot less prevalent, but this season/recently have become much more prevalent. There are even threads on here about pitch incursion at AG. I’m not sure what happened at PV last night, however what happened at Nottingham has resulted in a severe prison sentence and pictures of what appears to be a player kicking out at a pitch invader. This is serious stuff! Without going on about the Gas toooo much, the invasion there was before the match ended, a throw back to the 70s where supporters would try to get games stopped. Bizarrely Nottingham Forest I remember we’re on the receiving end in a game v Newcastle. As we both remember. The fencing was taken down around grounds years ago as this behavior was deemed no longer an issue. The EFL, THE FA, police and government need to curtail this BEFORE we are all penned in again and we all remember what that lead to!
  8. Squeaky bum time on Sunday.
  9. Red was very harsh there
  10. Pope is keeping them in it
  11. Where is Thatch35 when you need him!
  12. Everton get one back
  13. Palace 2 Everton 0
  14. Chelsea one down
  15. Everton one down
  16. Your assessment of 12 is probably about right in reality!
  17. Just read this on the Derby forum. Answering someone on here called Luke I guess. Apparently MM and his mates at Derby get the same tax pass as whatever organization or industry Gee Screamer decides is somehow not paying their taxes. Was Derby not a simple case of not paying employees PAYE payments for several years? If HMRC are prepared to sacrifice 65% of the bill to keep Derby alive, as a taxpayer I’m prepared to sacrifice 100% of it to make sure they die, to discourage others. What an alarming precedent. Well Luke from Bristol, can I Also suggest that the higher rate of tax that the exchequer has missed out on from PAYE would not have stayed there. Lots of loopholes on a tax return to offset . Maybe Bristol City should die alongside sport to stop this happening. Perhaps you should also destroy your TV and stop channels broadcasting with all those pesky buggers getting determined taxation instead of sending in tax returns. billions overpaid on tax credits a few years ago when it started and written off. Hunt then down and shoot them. All those directors taking loans from their own business then going bust next for the chop. All that s*** you buy online from business not playing the game - stop them trading. Any business suffering and getting the benefit of not paying some tax they owe, close em down and get a 1000 staff on JSA. Finally, stop Lukes upcoming bank holiday, it won't be needed when we get rid of the monarchy and seize Charles duchies that he pays ridiculous level of tax on. One dimensional bitter nobber
  18. Kent is having a stormer.
  19. Do we actually know with certainty that there is a 65% hair cut on taxation. Or is this an assumption based on what’s in the public domain? The idea that Mike Ashley/Dports Direct buy the ground is not completely silly. However public funds buying the ground and revenue debt being forgiven is a huge ask of government, local and national.
  20. It’s a matter of where obviously. Off the top of my head Burton and Chesterfield are close but I doubt they have the size required for derby to make enough money. Going to Nottingham is out of the question. Can you imagine the mayhem regardless of which ground they play. This further away is more likely but that will cost a lot in lost revenue too. Kirchner is playing his pair of threes well but I’m not confident of his ability to bluff this over the line. Re enter mike Ashley!
  21. Billy Sharpe was head butted on the pitch/playing area after a pitch invasion by celebrating home fans. These are the bare facts as I know them. So does any one know if the guy was boozed or coked up? In my experience after 120 minutes of football and penalty’s booze and drugs are not really much of a factor unless you managed to neck five at half time or find a bog to snort a couple of lines while the players were being picked for the penos. Several things here. It is my understanding it is a criminal offense to go onto the playing surface. So NF will definitely be charged with failing to control their supporters and more than one person (the assailant) needs to be charged with entering the field of play. The EFL have not come down hard on clubs in the respect of supporters coming on to the field and YES Bristol City is one of the clubs where bottle throwing and entering the field of play has been largely overlooked by authorities. The debacle at the memorial gates stadium was deliberately overlooked by as many as possible, but that yesterday was a throw back to thirty years ago and more. Societal issue definitely! The rules don’t apply to me is obviously becoming as prevalent in the UK as it is in the USA and that is the issue, coke n booze being taken in large quantities is just a symptom, for those of you that might be doing PhD’s Attitudes in society take a lot of changing, but managing them at football is easy. You punish the clubs to a huge extent and that pressure will permeate through the club and most sane supporters I’m for making a huge example of Nottingham Forest as this was so egregious and if that means giving the game to Sheff utd or at the very least give them a heavily reduced allocation for the play off final and advise the club that if supporters attend without being in the clubs group they will forfeit the match Kids running on the pitch has been a problem at AG ably assisted in some cases by parents this season I’m not sure booze and drugs are to blame there either
  22. The running on the pitch has been getting worse. The only thing that will stop it is punishment that hurts the club as no one much cares about individuals or horses!
  23. Yes. Disappointing for everyone. However the blond boy Backwell (correct me if I’m wrong about his name) was excellent when he got on. Reminded me of Barry Bannan (:laugh:) There were a few eye catchers. The lad playing right full back/wing back ran and ran but hardly got a decent ball in to him. A ridiculously sluggish start was annoying. The Portuguese kid made our backline look like they were carrying rocks in the first ten. Still plenty to be upbeat about, particularly one or two who really haven’t had much attention!
