  1. Do you think any minister would come out and openly say "we're going to lower workers rights"???

  2. They are the only 2 she mentioned but there are lots! How about old ,inadequate overcrowded housing, how about employment conditions where people keep working when they sick or they don't get paid, how about people failing to be tested because they can't afford to isolate, how about a higher minimum wage, how about the 2 children max barrier to welfare families of 3 or more chilldren and much, much more? These are the things her government has caused but she doesn't mention any of them, only a couple of things that are, in her mind anyway, nothing to do with government.

  3. Re Harry Pickering, as I read it they want £60000 for him and we have offered £400000 and quite likely he'll go somewhere else. I've never seen him so I don't know how good he is or not but if Rovers think he's a good'un and he's only 21 and he plays in a position where we need somebody, why are we baulking at £200000? Its small change these days. Can't the owners see that they will make money from him one way or another---either the preferred way where he helps us get promotion or resale later on? Dumb.

  4. Two very scary things here. Firstly we have a government - arguably the most incompetent ever - who are hell bent on returning us to industrial revolution times of equality. I've run out of words to say how disgusted I am with them. Secondly we have voters like Chaddy who support them no matter what. No matter their past history of lying, how they have voted, reports from the paper and opposition - they cannot do anything wrong. This is scary as it allows them licence to do anything. When some of the voting public are so detached from reality that their party can do no wrong, goodn

  5. In my view she made it sound like they are the two main reasons in an effort to deflect away from the Tories incompetence which is what the question was aimed at. She's a typical 'not my fault Guv' type of politician. I remember when she tried to be a smart arse trying to correct Marcus Rashford when she tweeted that water supply wouldn't be disconnected for non payment of bills, completely missing the point about hungry children.

Don't get me wrong it's a terrible outlook and a stupid way to do politics but I can see how you end up voting as you do with this mindset. What I can't understand is Chaddy - and those like him's - outlook. He clearly is interested in politics and has his finger on the pulse. He spots and highlights corruption and incompetence in other parties and regularly posts links to them. He regularly reads and contributes to the po

  15. The money that has been thrown at the club since 2012 and for us to have pretty much been anchored to mid table in the second division (at best) for the duration whilst the infrastructure of the club has been run down is insane. More fool the owners, I suppose, if they are not demanding much more in the way of outcomes, but Christ what could we have achieved if the club had been run in a far less dysfunctional way this past decade...

  18. Sorry no, just watched the highlights, and that was utterly criminal from Branthwaite. Might honestly be one of the worst tackles (if you call it that?) I've ever seen delivered from someone in a Rovers shirt. I am the biggest fan in the world of old school hard tackles, but you don't raise your boot in the air like that, ever. No I don't think it was purposefully malicious, but something has gone very wrong in his training if he hasn't been told that is never acceptable no matter what. And then to be honest Everton have to answer for that.

  21. Hi Tony. Actions speak louder than words and I've formed my opinion over a period of time based on Mowbray's tenure here. You obviously have a different view and that's fine. I doubt you know Warnock any better than I know Mowbray but even if we were to accept your character assessment of them both, Warnock's managerial CV eclipses that of our manager and I want a manager who'll get us success not one I can invite round for tea.

  27. They wouldn’t embark on a review of workers rights immediately after brexit without knowing where they were going. As has been pointed out already, if you want to know what Kwarteng really believes about workers rights, read about his involvement in Britannia unchained. At least four of the current cabinet have the same beliefs - Kwarteng, Raab, Truss and Patel. You’ve already been conned by your own government over brexit, you’re now heading into backing a party that is looking at removing more of your rights. https://www.theguardian.com/politics/2012/aug/22/britanni

If our media had called out more of the lies this government told much earlier maybe just maybe, the country wouldn't be in such a parlous state.

  33. I feel like the main problem is that you are essentially dismissing the potential of any potential success and indeed the manager meeting his self inflicted targets of a play off push because you have lost all hope. There are so many factors that ensure that we are not merely a club and Mowbray is not a manager fighting a losing battle as a minnow against the giants. One of the main ones is that many if those with higher budgets are not ones whereby the money is freely available to the manager. 2 of the 3 relegated sides and indeed some of those with parachute payments have higher w

  34. I’m sorry Rev but I can’t let your post go unchallenged. Your last paragraph shows well your disdain for our manager. You assert he is deceitful to his employers, he is lazy and is only motivated by his retirement pot at the end of his career. Assertions that I doubt you have any evidence for. Astonishingly, you contrast him with a 70 year old who engaged in a foul mouthed rant against the officials and later with an 18 year old boy wearing blue and white. Your defence of him is that he is “engaging” and “ he gets carried away in the heat of the moment!” You must have miss

  35. IMO, we have no identity as a footballing team - there is no structure, no certainty of formation, no plan B (difficult to believe there is even a plan A) and precious little hope with Mowbray in charge. I think it's all reactive management by Mowbray, often making it up as he goes along. A bit of context to what you describe as "the outstanding start". We recorded big wins against Wycombe (in only their second match in this league and they currently prop up the league and it will be amazing if they move up even one place), the hapless Derby (who have sacked their manager and remain

  37. Our competition every year are the teams with the biggest budgets, usually the relegated clubs over the past 3yrs and Brentford who have traded massively over the past 3/4yrs. Can you explain how you expect us to compete with the likes of Norwich or Bournemouth for example this season? We survive on loans mostly, its not going to get us promoted anytime soon as history shows us. The gap is getting wider by the season, with our budget of £1.49p its tough Rev, regardless who the manager is.

  41. 100% yes. As already touched on, this year was meant to be 'the year' after two seasons of 'consolidation'. This summer we didn't lose any key players yet again, the players brought in looked to be very good signings, we were saying that everything was in place (apart from those of us who've had doubts about Mowbray's ability to get us challenging for a while now). So if I was told that we'd be plodding along in mid-table yet again being x amount of points from the play offs, then it would have simply confirmed what plenty of us were quite sure of and what surely everybody must realise no

  43. If it wasn't for the actions of the cops there would have been a lot of dead lawmakers, and maybe a dead vice president. Plenty there were armed and wanted action. The riot should not be viewed as an isolated incident. It was the culmination of months of lies, more lies, and nefarious activities from Trump and members of the Republican party that was eaten up by the more fervent followers. It all starts with Trump's personality. He cannot admit to losing so it has to be something else at play. He signaled this before the election. When asked if he lost would he concede. He said no.

  44. I am still convinced Brereton was foisted on Mowbray due to certain criteria that were being followed at the time. He didn't resign over that and I don't think he will now - even if there is some substance in these rumours. Mowbray is stubborn and if he feels there is interference from above he may just dig his heels in further.

  45. I see that Mastercard is to increase charges for purchases in the EU from a UK based card - from 0.3% to 1.5% for credit cards and 0.2% to 1.15% for debit cards. This is because they can rather than because they have to after Brexit. The EU regulation that controlled fees no no longer applies to the UK. The UK Government could regulate to stop this - let's wait and see whether they do. If they don't it's going to cause pain to businesses both large and small, but particularly the latter, many of which have had to shift onine due to the pandemic.

  46. I think Buckley is a product of sanitised football from youth level. He's a lad who can put his foot on the ball and play a pass. And I do think there is the potential for him to be one of these players who plays differently. At a different rhythm. He was the next big thing before he'd played for the first team and I feel like he has been told that too much. He is trying to tick along at that rhythm when what he really needs is some grit. Earn the right to play. He needs to hit the gym and start eating a lot of food. He will never be stacked but he is being bypassed. He needs to run. And

  49. That's my main complaint regarding Mowbray. We have no coherent way of playing. We look like a pick up team that just rocked up at the local rec on a Sunday afternoon for a post Saturday night piss up kick about. When you watch a well organised team you can see a method in what they are doing, you can see why each player is playing in the position they are in. Together they amount to more as a team than they amount to as individual players. You can't see that at Rovers. We become less as a team than we are as individuals. That can only come down to one thing - the Manager and his coaching staf
