  1. I watched the new double episode of Dark Side of the Ring on Benoit last night... it was definitely the most comprehensive review of the entire incident I’ve ever seen. Not an easy watch, but recommended.

    Certainly some people there are providing a service. However, I think having a fully operational collections department, chasing customers for payments of unsecured loans, borrowed at an APR of 41.2% at a point in time when the government has felt it necessary to introduce mortgage and rent relief measures is frankly beyond the pale. and refusing to pay employees self isolating due to symptoms or vulnerable children is disgusting.

    Not more or less... massive difference
  4. Oh I’d love them to do that on the next season! I’ve watched a pretty good YouTube video that was a compilation of a few shoot interviews speaking about the incident. 2 Cold Scorpio And Vader amongst others... Blackburn didn’t get a mention as far as I remember!

    Looks like they have started backtracking. Didn’t take long.

    Apparently TV licences are essential and call centre workers flogging them are key workers

    Good on you Chaddy, but I hope when you do feel better you won’t consider yourself immune and carry on as normal - please keep following whatever government guidelines are in place.

    Or maybe you caught it at Cheltenham and passed it on to your colleagues? It could still fit your agenda though - I expect there were a good few ‘foreigners’ at the races. You’ve sounded like a 21st century Alf Garnett today Chaddy.

    There are a lot of idiotic and selfish dickheads out there, and one or two on this site. Suppose that’s always going to be an issue. What is really disgusting me though is the actions of some businesses. I’m seeing plenty of small, independent businesses shutting up, or at least making massive concessions. Sometimes even changing their operating model entirely in an attempt to survive while protecting the general public. At the same time, some big PLCs are encouraging staff to get on busses and trains, and sit in crowded offices doing work that could not be described as essential or important by any stretch of the imagination. It’s absolutely ridiculous. Remember who these are, and never give them your business again.

    Stricter measures needed ASAP.
  11. I’d been wanting to see them since I first heard about it. Pretty glad I remained blissfully unaware until now! For me Wrestling with Wregret has gone down hill a bit lately. That was a belter though, more like that please Brian!
  12. Just finished watching the first series of Dark Side of the Ring. It’s a series of documentaries by Vice. I’d been hoping to see them for ages and never had a clue they were on All 4 until someone said on Twitter the other day. The episodes are: Murder of Bruiser Brody, Randy Savage and Miss Elizabeth, Fabulous Moolah, Death of Gino Hernandez, Montreal Screwjob and the Von Erich family. They were all really good! If you are stuck for something to watch while confined to the house I definitely recommend them. New series starts in the states on Tuesday, so hopefully it’s not too far behind on All 4. Some absolute belters to look forward to by the looks of things with Episodes on Owen Hart, Chris Benoit, New Jack, Dr D David Schultz, Jimmy Snuka, Dino Bravo, The Road Warriors, Herb Abrams and the UWF, and the Brawl for All!

    Please thank your wife from everybody, and urge her to think of her own well-being. She and all her colleagues do more than enough on a daily basis, and we will rely on them long after this finishes, whenever that may be. If more of the population had a fraction of her compassion this situation would be much easier.
  14. Probably right after America the Beautiful!
  15. This has actually peaked my interest. Wasn’t planning on watching, but I will now.

    It’s all well and good demanding more action from the government, but the great British public can’t even follow the most basic of advice. Queuing shoulder to shoulder to get in the supermarket before it opens, stripping the shelves of essentials within half an hour of the doors opening and grabbing bog rolls faster than the staff can get them back out to the shelves. Also seen people jostling to get on overcrowded trains this morning. Not to mention people who have been given the option to work from home saying things like “With my workload? No, I need to be in the office!”. People taking a bit of responsibility and not being so bloody selfish would make any government proposals a hell of a lot more effective.
  17. I thought it stood for Chaddy’s Secret Alias
  18. "Some people compare it to seasonal flu, alas that is not right. Owing to the lack of immunity, this disease is more dangerous. "It is going to spread further and I must level with you, I must level with the British public, many more families are going to lose loved ones before their time." Thats the key points I’m taking from what Johnson has to say. On first view it seems quite blasé, but it’s realistic. It’s spreading at a phenomenal rate, and while there might not be any confirmed cases in the Blackburn area yet it is an absolute certainty there will be before very long. I fully expect at some point I will have to cut social contact completely in the not too distant future (I’m on heavy duty immunosuppressants). In the meantime I will be giving football, gigs I have tickets to, gyms, pubs and restaurants a swerve. The big worry I have is that even when the “Government and science based” do decide to implement stronger preventative measures, plenty of people will suddenly decide not to pay any attention to them due to their own selfish sense of self importance.
  19. I’d go with Walton Nyambe Adarabioyo Lenihan Bell Bennett Travis Johnson Downing Rankin-Costello Armstrong Subs: Leutweiler, Mulgrew (haha), Davenport, Smallwood, Rothwell, Graham, Gallagher After his last dismal outing, Brereton doesn’t deserve to make the bench. Gallagher is lucky to. At least Smallwood grafts and we need defensive cover and Mulgrew is it. Obviously there is no chance of this.
  20. I think it’s more that he hasn’t realised the limitations yet. He came after HSH brought in Mowbray.
  21. Make no mistake, none of the so called directors who work at the club on a day to day basis would have any say on any managerial appointment. The last three have all come from the same ‘Trusted Advisors’ that inflicted Kean on us
  22. You could swap Kalinic with Chris Brown, Nathan Delfouneso, David Goodwillie, Corrado Grabbi, Luke Varney or Maceo Rigters and that comment is still valid.
  23. Like Mowbray, and Coyle and Lambert before him, Smallwood is with HSH. HSH stands for Honeyman, Sheron and Horner... all three are ex SEM employees or directors. Quick google search of “Gavin McCann agent” gives a good bit of background on these fellas, and some insight into who still has their grubby snout in the trough at Ewood.
  24. Walton - downgrade on Raya, Has improved recently but should’ve done better with their second. Exposed today. Bennett - Gave away an obligatory penalty. Poor fullback, far less worrying in more advanced positions. Too reliant on him due to our severely unbalanced squad. Nyambe - plays centre half and is still expected to maraud down the right wing on his own. Hardly surprising he got caught out of position on occasion. Best right back in the league, took a third of the season for Bennett to be dropped and now he’s moved from there due to our ludicrous transfer policy. Adarabioyo - linked with a £20 million move in this mornings rags. Halve that fee after that display. Not at the races, but in a makeshift defence, hardly surprising. Bell - poor defensively when 1 on 1, but at least he tried to make things happen. Confused as to who was playing where did that side at times. Travis - off day, but I’d have preferred a blind, one legged Travis to some of the other jokers on that pitch today. Downing - Covered several positions, but didn’t influence the game like he can. Rothwell - Mostly anonymous, otherwise ineffective. Can’t see him kicking on. Not good enough to be starting games. On at least two occasions he went and hid behind a defender rather than look for the ball off a throw. Gallagher - huffed and puffed less than usual today. He’s not a kid any more, he was the 4th oldest player in our starting 11. At his best he’s bang average, and he was some way off that today. Armstrong - I was happily eating my words regarding him as he looked unstoppable a few weeks ago. Recent changes in personnel and therefore his position have nullified him better than any opponent managed to. Brereton - Joke of a performance. Halfarsed, braindead, pitiful. At one point he “challenged” for a header... I swear if his shorts had had pockets his hands would’ve been in them. Waste of space, shouldn’t play again. He is a hindrance to the team. A zero out of 10 performance as I can’t think of a single good thing he did. Subs: Half time was too late for changes, never mind 70 minutes. Johnson - should’ve started Graham - May be well past his best, but still far superior to Gallagher and Brereton. Never gonna be an impact sub. Buckley - not seen the challenge back, thought a red may have been somewhat harsh, but a rash and daft tackle. Annoyed he will now face a ban as that increases the likelihood of some of those who played today retaining their shirt.
