  1. Would you expect that the theoretical £30m be spent well though?
  2. I admit that when this popped up to the top of the list I thought "oh FFS has he tried to egg on the far right version of David Icke types to start shooting to make him dictator for life".
  3. I also disagree with Wood 26. I feel that this summer could lead to another case of us selling our better players, or them leaving as they're out of contract and another cost cutting run. To just blindly assume JRC, Nyambe, Armstrong, Dack and Holtby will just stay here and have another season of playing for a badly set up team if or when teams with genuine promotion hopes, or a Premier League team is bordering on deluded. As for Venky's being brilliant, well for Mowbray they have been-him and his mates run the place now, and let him plod along after spunking millions. Obviously 10th in the championship is a great achievement for some, as good as 10th in the Premier League.
  4. Not those. They have Mercedes engines and electronics, and and Mr. Stroll, that Canadian who owns an F1 team owns 25%, whilst Merc own 5%. So they're not all that British.
  5. Left wing press? There's more than The Guardian? I suppose there is also The Mirror as well. Nice to see a person being honest about where they stand and not pretending to be middle of the road, neutral.
  6. We have good attacking players, but we haven't used them properly for months. Putting a big burly striker out on the wing is just one example of this. Tony will find a way of nullifying the threats you state.
  7. At best, a shoddy, lucky 1-1 draw. At worst, 3-0 loss. We are entirely dependent on Armstrong having one of those amazing games where he scores at least 2 goals.
  8. George Soros. Hell, he's blamed for everything in certain circles and countries (like his native Hungary), so stuff it, it is his fault. Or Jeremy Corbyn, or Peppa Pig. It is not the fault of the party that has been governing the UK for the last 10 years.
  9. I spent most of my teenage years in North Bedfordshire in the 90s, and I only knew one Luton fan in school. They were all about the big London clubs, Spurs, Liverpool and Man Utd. It is probably even more so now. Here in Coventry, people seem to support a 'big' team, but kind of like Coventry City as a home/2nd team. It's the older generations who remember the FA cup win who are proper City fans.
  10. It is just a shame that all this song and dance was not led by intelligent, principled, decent people who had a clear vision about how a post EU country that could be great for all Britons. Instead we've chosen to listen to, and be led by, hypocritical charlatans like Farage and Jacob Rees Mogg, weak and useless idiots like May, and trusted a shallow, lazy and vain clown in Johnson to deliver it. All supported by a media owned by tax exiles and an Australian far right pensioner. The odds are that such a bunch of self interested dog eggs have done us a disservice and may profit from a disaster, or will scuttle off to foreign shores like their money.
  11. If we fancy a chance of promotion ASAP: Wagner, O'Neill (as in the Stoke manager), Hughes, Jokanovic, Billic, one of the 20 Italian or Spanish managers that managed Watford in the last 5 seasons. If we want to go down the 'budget route' and still have a shot soon: Robins, Cook, Cowley brothers, Pearson, Stendel, one of the other 20 Italian or Spanish managers that managed Watford in the last 5 seasons (I forget which ones were better than the others).
  12. I think Labour under Blair fell in love with all the management consultant/employment agency types, and thought a whole economy could be based on shopping and telesales. Employment agencies boomed under Labour, and gave so many idiots access to office jobs where they could swing their balls about without the pressure of flogging windows on commission. They thought the country didn't need to make things as we could just get the Chinese to do that. Such short term, non-strategic thinking has been going on since Thatcher.
  13. Thing about journeys are that they have destinations. Where's the destination for Tony's journey?
  14. The lack of attention and agreement over the service/financial industry is probably going to mean quite a few companies will switch London for Frankfurt, Holland or Paris. You'd think that such an important sector, one that often lobs money to the Tories would get more certainty in their future. Then again, we're talking about the worst government in decades led by a gang of crooks and morons.
  15. Those people are the reason Mars bars get smaller, and cost more all the time. That's the politest way I can put it. They think this is 'our level' and are happy being really mediocre.
  16. Well........ it's better than no deal at all. I've not really looked into the details, but it sounds like stuff like the EHIC will be scrapped, and the Farage parks will be half full instead of overflowing. More paperwork for exporters, as well as tariffs but it could have been a lot worse. As for the idea that a UK bill of rights could replace similar EU legislation, that isn't happening under a Conservative government that has the likes of Patel and JRM leading the show, and all MPs open to all sorts of bribes and favours.
  17. And then get the equivalent of Jay Bothroyd or Franny Jeffers on loan.
  18. Joining the Euro, the Schengen area or something like that might be demanded. I can't see the media or even most remain voters being eager for those.
  19. You're not wrong on that Mercer. With all the talk of concussion in various sports, Tony is nutting his glass ceiling like........well you can put your own non PC metaphor in to finish that.
  20. Blimey. I know they're a tombola but at some point they'll have gone through any feasible manager and hit your Owen Coyle/Phil Brown types. I'll have to look at the odds to see who the bookies favour.
  21. If I was a capable player: Hughes, Big Sam, Dalglish. As an inept person nearing 40 and with dodgy knees, no pace and as much football talent as Steven Hawking: Steve Kean (playing in Brunei, and not at Rovers) Owen Coyle. I'd never inflict my real self on the budget of Rovers.
  22. As someone who likes a red wine, but is a cheap date is that a fancy 'more than £7' wine? I'm the sort who'd rather go on a mission with your Aldi Toro Loco (which is actually pretty good) and save the expensive stuff for special occasions like Rovers or Coventry RFU getting into the top division. Oh, and if you like gin, Roku is really good. All this is away from the point that Mowbray should be thanked but binned as he lacks that extra 15% to get us promoted, but consumer information is important.
  23. Do we want a chance of promotion? Yes. Will Tony get us there? No. Therefore he must be thanked for fixing Coyle's mess and someone else with better coaches brought in.
  24. If we can find a tough, able centre back to come in on loan to cover the injuries, that'll be great.
