  1. That’s what we’ve been short of on the opposition front benches - a bit of passion.

  2. I agree Tyrone. Starmer treats it like a courtroom but Rayner says it as it is. Every Labour MP should take their lead from her.

  5. In my view there are 2 main reasons, followed by a host of smaller ones. The 2, in no order of importance are; Misinformation and unsubstantiated information given easy avenues to spread by both traditional and social media. A lost trust in governments. It's been on a steady decline for years; 2021 Edelman Trust Barometer.pdf I will add that as information available on coronavirus isn't complete it opens the door to people questioning all that is known and coming to a different conclusion.

  6. That it's going to carry on and on whilst they are all here until something finally goes bang.

  7. I thought the comment about the swimming pool was interesting. Presumably that is one overhead he has his eyes on cutting off as we can be confident such a luxury won't be included in any plans. It certainly couldn't have been fit on the bottom academy site. I think we are still supposed to believe that Waggott's presence at the club is entirely unrelated to Mowbray's (yeah right) and that it is also a coincidence that for the second time and second club in succession these charlatans are involved in a training ground 'project' that seems to be based on selling valuable land for housing and finding a cheaper, smaller site elsewhere (if ever). I dont believe in coincidences like that. On the subject of Coventry I keep saying how since the moment the three stooges were all gone they have been on a rapid upwards trajectory. Amazing that. Almost like they were being held back by incompetence.

  8. The nut job anti-vaxers are targeting head teachers and teachers now at schools across the UK. Absolute pond life, just what you need after 18 months of being on the frontline fighting against this pandemic keeping the schools open.

  9. I can't marry up being so non plussesd by the virus but absolutely petrified of the vaccine. I'm not at all bothered by the virus the risk to me is insignificant but at the same time the risk from the vaccine is many many times smaller than the risk from the virus.

  10. Holy hell. Just as I was starting to calm down about the woes of the summer and then this comes along. Call me a cynic but I reckon he's been waiting until we had a few good results or were in a decent position before agreeing to do this interview. Every time I listen to this bloke the less I believe him and the less I trust him. Surely I cannot be alone in thinking the sums don't add up in relation to the out of contract players? In particular the likes of Lenihan, Brereton and Nyambe? I mean even if we just imagine what they would cost in the market to replace, and that's before the millions in value and transfer fees we will miss out on and they leave for nothing. Does Waggott ever get challenged on this or is he just left free to bleat on about our wage structure and not breaking it? I also find it quite insulting that our £300,000 a year CEO comes along telling us we cannot afford to do x, y, z when he is raking in such a massive salary to fail to get things done. Then there's the usual excuses. Normally the CEO would take responsibility for poor performance or failure yet this bloke just has his excuses down to a fine art and is allowed to churn them out. Collapsing attendances - not his fault Poor commercial performance - not his fault Failing to get transfers over the line - not his fault I see there is mention of the 1875 club making a comeback. Apparently this will enable discounts on tickets, but as far as I can recall when it was last in operation there was minimal benefit to regular supporters and no discounts. It was £10 a year and ensured priority on away tickets and exemption from the Waggott tax, but not discounts. I think this is just another money grabbing exercise. Fans won't even get a full season out of it because it is being introduced late. I think the most interesting line from his interview was this: "and get to a balanced position of having an affordable and competitive squad, funded by the revenue of the support base and other commercial sponsors.” No mention of the owners providing capital to strengthen the squad. Pipe dreams of us assembling a competitive Championship club on our revenues. I wonder if this is Waggott's selling point to the owners - leave it to me and I'll cut costs back to the point where you don't need to put cash in - or if it is the case the owners have told him there's no more money and he's let the cat out of the bag.

  11. Would swap places with Burnley in a heartbeat...financially stable,owners who are pro-active with the fans and a Manager who appears to get the best out of a limited side. Never thought I'd ever say that.
