  1. Spot on again fenman. Tommy Cooper, Dad's Army, Open All Hours great in my opinion. Yes different generation now. Personally I despise smut and lewd jokes. An old and great stand up comedian of the 50's (?) Dickie Henderson said on interview one day, ''If I had to resort to smut and lewdness to get a laugh, I'd quit the stage'.
  2. I heard yesterday from a very good source (that must remain anon) that what baldy says here is in fact true. The season will be, in all probability, played out behind closed doors - once all the players involved have been given the all clear in terms of their health.
  3. I remember watching Crediton play Plymouth Civil Service, it would have been back in the early 1980's. Can't remember what league that was in - too long ago and memory playing tricks.
  4. Yes - that's hard to argue against sir ☺️.
  5. Darren, in my opinion nobody is worth £70,000 per week ( we know too, that some players are paid far in excess of that ). Brain Surgeons, Doctors, Nurses, Scientists etc, people who really serve our society and should be paid more than they are - maybe they are worth such pay (?) but not footballers.
  6. Mmm - trouble is Richard, if you don't subscribe you won't be watching sport. Personally I'd rather see the Premier League fold up, rather than see these players getting paid what they are - they simply are not worth it. (as Harry Redknapp said) !!
  7. They certainly are in the same boat Darren. Some of the CEO's get paid bonuses even if the company lose millions, which is disgusting. Yes these people could indeed help the NHS. I don't think there is a vendetta against the players themselves - it's the ridiculous salaries they get paid. You can't blame the players, of course they will accept vast sums of money for playing the game they love (presumably love ?) and many do give lots of money to charities. Mata of Man U said on interview some seasons back that, (Quote, ''we are paid far too much money for what we do''). Mata gives over half of his salary to a number of charities in Spain. I think we are talking about a principle here. These Premier League players are paid more money per week than most people, many of whom are very skilled in their field of work, will see in their lifetime. Most would have to work for many years to see such sums of money.
  8. I hope not - if they did a lot of charities would suffer terribly.
  9. Great idea Richard, for players to pay the wages of the non playing staff at their clubs. Can't agree when you say that the players are not role models WOTP. Surely they are - kids look up to them and try to emulate them - there's evidence of this everywhere. Man U shirts with Rashford's name on the back etc, are selling well, as are other players named shirts.
  10. It has been suggested that Premier League player's wages should be cut. The governing body are, we are told, reluctant and dragging their feet on this. The average wage in the Premier League apparently is £70,000 per week. In my opinion, this eye watering money is obscene when considering what the players actually do for that money. They are the highest paid people in the world, other than many CEO's in big companies. The proposal is, that the players give up a large percentage of their wages to help the NHS in their financial crisis. What do people think ?
  11. Still playing at 54 fenman - I take my hat off to you sir.
  12. This is a great post fenman. Yes if it's in the blood, football has the priority over all else. Mind you, my wife wouldn't agree now - but when I was playing football I didn't have a girlfriend. That all changed when I went away to sea mind. As a Petty Officer there is room for a great social life on a cruise ship. I'll leave it there - safe to say I discovered girls ! Getting time off for playing sport was difficult in the Met. Even if you were representing the Met at football, rugby, boxing - all depended on the workload. The 'days leave' that were cancelled multiplied astonishingly, it's a good job they paid you overtime for it. Best paid job I ever had - but not the best job though. That title goes to my years at sea. Best job I ever had and I would do it over again. I enjoyed my years in the Met - a worthwhile job and with plenty of adrenaline moments. (Yes, there were plenty of adrenaline moments at sea too). Still playing football at 50 fenman - blimey that deserves a medal mate !
  13. Amen. Rest in peace Alan.
  14. Are you sure this isn't just another bit of fake news baldy ?
