  1. Drinking cider on the way to work, sounds like a brilliant idea! It's a shame I drive
  2. Very bad decision to jump ship at Luton when promotion was a shoe-in, even in January, and when they had lots of upward momentum. Stoke have been in a downward spiral for some time and he was fairly fortunate that they stayed clear of relegation last season. Not the first and certainly won't be the last manager to jump ship for a so say bigger name though.
  3. Yep remember that well 2 or 3 yuppie types (it must have been late 80's, early90's?) giving it the big un. The boys in blue turned up and removed at least one of them, to much hilarity in the away stand.
  4. Blimey, there was an amazingly accurate prediction here!!! pongo88 OTIB Supporter 4,928 6,710 posts Location: A little to the east of west and a bit south of north Report post #947 Posted April 22, 2014 If they go down, I can see them being a marquee club as well. They'll start work on their new ground, and run out of money, so will just have a few large tents around the pitch instead of proper stands.
  5. Are you sure you didn't sleepwalk to the Mem last night?
  6. If I remember correctly Leicester had less possession in most of their games when they won the Prem
  7. I'm intrigued by what looks like a Tannoy speaker top right? Rather than it being bolted to the stanchion horizontally in the traditional manner, it appears to be suspended by a cable looped over a nail attached to one of the tent poles and therefore just dangles limply, pointing straight down Ian Holloway lurking suspiciously outside the shitter too.
  8. I have one abiding memory of his reign and that was the dullest game of football I've ever seen - it was a 0-0 v Wycombe, possibly a Friday evening and if they were still playingl today, it would still be 0-0. The odd thing about his time was that we could't score for toffee but had Tony Thorpe in the squad and he hardly got to play. He was a top goalscorer at that level. Maybe something to do with him being a nippy small guy and not the 6ft6 lump that Pulis has always gone for. [Edit] just checked Wikipedia and Thorpe went on to score 51 in 128 games for City and Pulis wouldn't play him!

    Agreed nothing for Cardiff to be embarrassed about this season, gave it their best shot and suffered the 'slings and arrows of outrageous fortune' Doesn't make me any less happy to see them back down here again though.
  10. Must surely be the first manager to get promotion from the top 4 leagues below the Prem? Conference to L2 Oxford L2 to L1 Northampton L1 to Championship Sheff Utd Championship to Premier league Sheff Utd
  11. While the fines for late returns are nothing even for a tinpot operation like Rovers one thing you do not want to do is provoke HMRC to have a closer look at your affairs. Not submiting on time wil certainly do that!
  12. Same for me except that for some reason that I've long since forgotten, I follow Alloa and a Partick loss today would have been great. Still as the only part time team in the Scottish Championship, Alloa are putting up a great fight. Last season Brechin got 5 points or something and didn't win a game all season...
  13. IR35 supposedly put a stop to that a few years ago I think or was it more to do with 'disguised employment'? It's 14 years since I was a IT contractor and the details are getting hazy but I remember that sadly my tax bill suddenly went up considerably. To be fair it's what I should really have been paying all along but many IT people used tax avoidance schemes back then, it was the norm. So I've never been in a position to criticize SL's tax affairs. My accountant's stock phrase was "We'll give it a go".....
  14. and we all know who'll be all over this, doing their utmost to get Blackpool deducted points.....
