    Premier League Stuff

    Whilst I don't take much notice of Burnley, I have been waiting for their 'bully boy' moment, as opposed to the 'plucky/hard workers' tag. Usually a Wenger allegation turns the tide of (largely southern) opinion, but he isn't around. It looks like Klopps comments and the Gomez injury might turn the tide in this instance.

    It seems to me that you are adding another potential weak link to the chain with a sporting director. If you have a bad manager you sack him. What if you have a bad sporting director? How do you know? You could sack manager after manager and be in the same boat with a bad sporting director. I can see the idea behind it, but I am struggling to see its usefulness in practice.

    Time wasting

    30 minutes each way, but the clock only runs when the ball is live.

    FA CUP

    I went to the last round against Barrow and it was a cracking game. I had a couple of pints in the pub where Nicky Reid is landlord and then on the game. Then into the wetherspoons after. Good day out!

    Speaking Behind Hands

    Wasn't the John Terry racism thing prosecuted using lip reading? Some footballers are clever enough to know they might say something stupid and that they are in the public eye.

    European Super League

    If such a thing were to happen I wonder how the fans of these clubs would cope with not winning the league every other season.

    Support for Gladwin

    Gillingham's young player of the year for the third year running, not League One's young player for the third year running.

    Loan Window

    That's just silly talk.

    Brexit Thread

    The 10 O'clock news seems to be indicating that there might be a deal to be had with the EU. I predict that everyone who has been saying that there should be no new referendum will change their tune, and vice versa.

    ROVERS v Brentford

    Had a Bolton fan singing Lowe's praises yesterday. I explained why he wasn't the most popular, and assured him that he should give Jason time.

    World Cup 2018

    I think we should announce that we are going to semi-boycott the World Cup. We should confirm that we are going to play the first three games, and then go home. It could spare lots of blushes all around.

    World Cup 2018

    Is it just me or is history repeating.? Our 'star' player gets injured before a major tournament (previously Beckham and Rooney respectively) and then gets picked to play in said major tournament even though clearly not match fit or match sharp. 'Star' player underperforms and we get knocked out, partly because we are playing someone who is not properly fit to the detriment of the team as a whole. In my opinion Kane has to prove himself to be back and at 100% before he gets picked. A fit Vardy or Rashford should get the nod ahead of a recovering Kane. Also, someone needs to nick that trumpet until after the tournament. That damn trumpet has been the funeral dirge accompanying English football for too long. It's a miserable noise. No wonder the players look lethargic with that horrible drone in the background. The theme tune for failure.
  13. Thanks for the advice, chaps. If the Fox is open from 10am I might have to see about heading out a bit earlier! Let's hope I'm in there celebrating afterwards, as well!
  14. I usually go to the Fox before the game, but the opening hours are stated as midday on Sunday so I don't know if they will be open. I have tried ringing them but they are not answering the phone! Does anyone know if the Fox is going to be open at 11-ish? I usually go to the Fox, and very occasionally the Navigation in Mill Hill (but a few of my mates have previously turned their noses up about meeting at the Navi!). If the Fox is closed does anyone have any recommendations as to where else to go pre-match that is relatively near the ground? Thanks in advance! Dan

    Maybe we should give this JHC chap a go?
