  1. Just managed to forget that one ..... Thanks! Can remember hearing the crack sat in the Atyeo.
  2. As you like consistency you would like that level of performance for the rest of the season?
  3. Great podcast - probably my favourite one of the players closely followed by Wilbs. Great job well done guys.
  4. In there entire history Leeds have spent longer outside of the top flight than in it.
  5. You didn't want to sit next to me at school I didn't get anything above a D! I think I got an E at maths and then ended up going on to do statistical analysis at higher education!
  6. So did they get in the playoffs through extrapolating results?
  7. I went as well, clearly works in smaller crowds. The logic of stopping something like that but saying it's ok to sit in the pub for 12 hours getting shitfaced is beyond me. Were talking about something that reached 4k+ new cases and killed 11 people yesterday and were impinging on people's freedom because of that, since when has the ends of saving everyone justified the means of taking away people's freedom's. Have I completely missed the point? I think the government need to explain this a lot better.
  8. Great content but a struggle to listen to at some points. Dont wish to be negative because I think it's great but some things that might be improved: Lots of accidental talking over each other, some gaps without anyone knowing who was supposed to be talking, not great audio quality responding to questions that weren't asked because there was a point to make.
  9. Soooo just to get this right, people that are crazy rich won't be able to pay people that are extremely well off more more money in pursuit of sporting success? Is any of these savings guaranteed to find there way back to lower costs for supporters or is this just people that are crazy rich not wanting to pay as much for there toys. Is there any consideration for the tax implications over time? Concerned that the average tax from a 10% wage cut is basically the cost of a nurse (I find it interesting that the average championship footballer pays about 9 nurses through the tax they pa
  10. Met an insurance salesman about 15 years ago who said most of our players were privately under some form of cover for loss of wages, apparently most contracts had severely reduced pay if a player was out with a long term injury.

    This kind of random appointment but from Germany, France or wherever really was what I was hoping for. It would truely have been a test of Ashtons connections and understanding of of the game and where its going. Instead we have Dean Holden.
  12. Worth £2b doesn't mean he has £2b. He will have a wide range of assets providing income sources (and some assets that don't - us), those income generating assets will likely be the majority of his £2b but will also be illiquid and if for example were office's could actually be worth a lot less following the pandemic. Of course it's all forbs taking an educated guess as well they don't know.
  13. If he wanted to do something like that he would need to own the company out right as the other shareholders might be a bit miffed if there profits were being syphoned off to pay for a football club.
  14. It's not his fault if they offer him the job, I will be fully behind him. I will question some of the senior leaders at the club.
  15. so with all that in mind - here's Dean Holden
  16. I am very happy with the job MA has done with the goals he has been set. Do you think he has done anything wrong within the direction he has been set by the board and owner?
  17. Your right - because anyone can find a fault with anything, especially people. The stock answer to Mccarthy would be that we were picking a manager to run the club and he isn't qualified to do that, then all we would have is 2 managers.
  18. Great interview, for someone who seems to have no ambition and then go on to play at the top of the championship that's pretty impressive. One thing I have noticed I always struggle with players saying someone was or is a "good person" and leaving it, I want to hear stories about why they are good people - preferably funny ones . Some players seem to need more encouraging than others - the managers you have had on seem to be able to tell stories better than the players, I assume they have had more practice.
  19. Firstly SL and JL don't pick the manager SL is the owner and JL is chairman of the board SL will likely take a recommendation after an explanation of the candidates they have reviewed and why they think that person is best. I would be surprised if JL is heavily involved other than interviewing and reviewing the short list with MA and probably Luke Werhun. You then seem to go on to say MA isn't a football man through and through - the quote used to be "get a football man". It seems that now we have one it's the wrong type of football man. Can you suggest a through and through football man
  20. You don't think he speaks in that management bullshit all the time do you? I can't see how he could and add value - he would actually need to define the stuff he is talking about for it to make any sense.
  21. It doesn't quite work like that, due to to the fact we already have some immunity (the 10% you mentioned) then those people aren't going to get infected so rather than a 2 month extreme high its going to be more like 5 months with a shallower peak. They also know how to treat it much better now. Yes there is uncertainty around long term immunity but if we're waiting for vaccination then you will likely be waiting for 5 years after they have found the vaccination until clinical trials are completed.
  22. I think next season will be impacted over winter as there will be another spike. Following that we should have pretty good herd immunity and things can get back to normal.
  23. And only 94 pages of bread puns .
  24. When I think about the people managers I have worked with I think all of them are left leaning.
  25. Imagine if we get promoted to the prem with an ex gas manager as no. 2. I hate to think what the gas logic would be for that, would it mean that they are actually the team in the prem?
