  2. Hi June. I’m fascinated by it. It isn’t something anyone really talks about. Do you know where he is buried?

    I know Jones is pie in the sky but I wouldn't want any overpaid egos in the squad and after x amount of years at manure he will inevitably fall into that bracket. I like our team.

    They changed the rules a while back so that all the clubs that trained a player are entitled to a (Very) small 'solidarity' payment when a player moves. A fraction of a percent, the idea being that a non-league team that produces a premier league player gets money over the course of the players career, depending on how many years the player was with them. No idea if that would apply in this case, but if it did we might get a couple of thousand quid.

    I just had a laugh thinking about how a ''Referees Call'' would go in a football match. Bedlam springs to mind

    He also had injury problems from a young age, struggled to stay fully fit for a long period. The Bellamy we saw at Ewood for that one season is the best striker I’ve seen play for us in my lifetime easily, I was born in 1996 by the way if you’re wondering why I’m not saying Shearer. He singlehandedly nearly got us in the champions league!

    Jones would be a great signing but it’s not going to happen, his wages are out of this world so Utd may as well keep him for the tiny % we would be willing to pay.

    He could have been I think, if he'd sorted himself out. Obviously just a personal opinion, but he had exceptional pace, could score from range, link and create. He was unplayable really. Some of the goals he scored were unbelievable solo efforts. Henry kicked on from a pretty modest start at Monaco into a goal machine at Arsenal really epitomising everything Wenger was trying to do. Bellamy on the other hand spent that part of his career falling out with Souness and Shearer, getting shunted out to Celtic, had one excellent season with us, then moved to Liverpool and hit Riise with a golf club and continued he merry go round of clubs. If he'd had his head screwed on he could have had a much better career.

    Moore has been a long term campaigner against the licence fee. I suspect as well as not paying it himself he could be said to have encouraged others to do the same given the line he has taken in numerous press articles.

    Didn't know this. Charles Moore, Johnson's pick to be next BBC chair, was once fined for refusing to pay the licence fee. https://www.ft.com/content/880fdd43-89d0-41b2-9590-3d0dad48300d This was even too much for Julian Knight, Conservative chair of parliament’s digital, culture, media and sport select committee, “To have a chairman, whoever that may be, convicted of non-payment of a licence fee seems to be completely beyond the pale,” said Mr Knight, during a hearing of the committee on Tuesday. “It’s almost like [someone] convicted of fraud being in a bank.” Looks like another own goal by this lamentable government

    It is reviewed as a matter of course. The referees have been told to give them as penalties irrespective of what they think. It's the IFAB instruction which is completely wrong in this instance and non compliance by any referee would result in a low mark and for repeat offences possible suspension. I expect much more controversy over the rest of the season.

    To be fair, I think Jota was in poor form and was struggling to keep his place at Wolves. They have Podence who seems to really be settling after signing in January, and Neto who is a good young player who seems to be establishing himself. Plus they have now signed 2 right wing backs, Hoever from Liverpool and Semedo from Barcelona who will allow Traore to play further forward again. Saying that, they lost 4 nil to West Ham at the weekend.

    The lad is a walking meme. How is losing to us the worst moment of his professional life?!

    Let's face it if he was to come back he would be a great signing. But we can't even remotely afford him

    Cardiff (H) - Saturday 3rd October 2020

    We have to go into the game with some confidence - the team appears settled, the formation and tactics appear to be working, the momentum is there, there is commitment and confidence throughout the team.... Unexpected reverse I fear!! C'mon you mighty Blues - prove my feeble heart wrong!

    Very early in the game. Mane movers towards the player, raises the arm, moves again towards the player and contact at speed is made by the elbow or as near to it as makes no difference. Wolves will miss Jota, I think they like Traore coming from deep

    I know, I’ve not seen anything to even remotely suggest that except one tweet from some guy saying he wants to come back here, just typical Twitter nonsense, some guy makes a passing comment then all the gullible idiots start discussing it. We wouldn’t afford 5% of his wages in a loan deal and nor would I want us to 😂

    I think the implication though is doing anything other than making a decision off one look at an incident is "bottling" any responsibility.

    Brexit

    Well, obviously whatever happens it will all be about saving face for our government and to some extent for the EU. There was always some wriggle room in the EUs position, because they prepared and got organised so they can afford a little sop to Tory vanity. They won't cross their red lines though.

    That's more like goal line technology than VAR. The DRS system is more like VAR.

    Take if you don’t like it in cricket when the umpire at square leg, who is looking right at the crease, refers run outs upstairs, chadster?

    Feel for ya pal. the worst thing I did was I got back on the pitch and ignored advice the first time I did it. My knee constantly swelled and I couldn’t walk properly Monday to Thursday then I’d play again all weekend. I think that made the second time I did it far worse. I can only suggest really taking your time getting back on the grass. Make sure your injuries are fully heeled to the maximum they can be then take your time building your confidence in a non contact or match environment. When you can out your foot through the ball and twist without pressure you do start to learn what you have lost and what is mental. The first time I did it I got my confidence back slowly but it took nearly two years before I was fully convinced it would hold up . A lot of it was in my head and I slightly adapted my game to compensate the little physical damage that remained. I went to the gym and built the muscles up around it to strengthen the area and I wasn’t to bad. The second time was when it was physical in lost everything, turn of pace, power But the most noticeable was balance I couldn’t get near anyone, I couldn’t beat anyone , I couldn’t bring the ball down. A started playing with a few friends who went easy on me but the joy was lost because in your head you can still do it but your body won’t let you. i strongly advise you to take your time getting heeled, get in a gym and strengthen the areas around your injury and the injury itself and then build your confidence twisting and turning, sprinting and kicking the ball from different angles and power before you go back into a match situation before you lose the love for it. Once it’s gone it’s like a bereavement

    I find it strange that your main issue seems to be that it is making it too easy for referees, rather than taking the positive that it is good for decision making to get a few looks at a potentially crucial decision. One thing you cant really do is constantly complain about poor refereeing decisions. As far as I am concerned, I accept that some decisions would be wrong should VAR be removed, which I am willing to accept. You either dismiss VAR and accept that referees will make mistakes, or embrace VAR and accept that it will take a bit of time for referees to come to a decision. You cant have your cake and eat it.

    Delckenbauer might keep him out the team at this rate....

    I think the 4 nil was a night match early season 76 or 77 .
