  1. Yes Older it's the same here , we took a load of cattle onto the marshes and the grass is very poor instead of the normal lush green of spring , yet 2 months ago they were all under water ( the marshes not the cattle )
  2. As W.C. Fields once said " it's only one mans opinion " but I can't see what all the furore is over . We've got a dodgy situation with the Russians sabre rattling , we've got a serious worldwide infection situation , serious debt problems , young men being murdered over drug dealing on a daily basis etc. etc. and here we are with governments treating this Super League as if it ranks as a serious matter as the others . Let them go , it's only a football problem , people arn't going to die over it , let them take their pieces of silver , football will survive somehow . People will still p
  3. I'm all for it providing they evict them from the Premier league .The ethics of football has been destroyed by the introduction of the Premier League . 3o years ago Sky said they would change the face of football , well that's true its gone from a game of entertainment for the fans to a money making exercise where most of the teams play not to lose rather than to win . As a result we are served up boring games played like chess , with a team of pundits brainwashing us into believing that its entertaining whereas its really a money making exercise for owners from far afield who have no real in
  4. Isn't it strange that abuse of social media has been skirted around for a few years causing misery and worse for some people ? Suddenly because footballers are subject to it more and more , people are demanding that action be taken . Being a simple person I've often wondered why people are addicted to it and why they use it . Now some clubs are stopping using it for a month as a protest . Listening to Talksport the other day I was shocked to hear that Ronaldo recieves £90million a year through spin offs by his use of social media . This explains why it is important to them , I thought
  5. I suppose the line of thinking ( no pun intended ) as regards the introduction of VAR is that football must be electronically controlled so to speak in other words all decisions will be monitored by an independent panel used electronic meters eventually . We are in an age where the process of thinking is being removed by technology . Many people rely on a calculator to add up , if the calculator says that 2 plus 2 equals 5 unless you haven't learnt how to add up manually you take this as correct . Many people are incapable of reading maps and rely on Sat Navs to direct them to where th
  6. Personally I can live with human errors by officials , I'm not saying I like it, but players also make mistakes that cost games it's part of the game . But I cannot see how any rational person with any idea of the passion in football could allow this VAR farce to continue . Wolves / Fulham game , brilliant headed goal by a loan player struggling to make his mark . Players line up to take centre , no complaints or protests but it is decided to review the goal , multiple lines drawn and after a delay it is decided that a player's cuff , not the scorers , is offside . I gather a goal was di
  7. Digressing from the post , being a Wolves fan I was disappointed with the result but I thought that the game was a throw back to the days of proper football , plenty of entertainment instead of playing not to lose . The childish goal celebrations are a sign of the modern times , the adverts on the tv are childish , most " comedy ? " shows are childish and most of the Sky football programmes are presented by childish people ( I don't include the match programmes ). I know you can say " well don't watch them " , well I don't I'm just going on the one's advertised as " must see programmes " .
  8. Saw a funny thing yesterday , my neighbour had a problem with his central heating boiler . The plumber turned up and 20 minutes later came running out of the house , slid on his knees on the lawn , grabbed the neighbours standard rose bush and air guitared and then ran round with his thumb in his mouth . I said to my neighbour " what's up with him ?" he replied " he's just managed to get the fuel control valve out of the boiler but he's still got to fix the rest of

  10. Fan power is also a damaging thing . Ipswich Town were once a top team , had a good run in Europe in the late 70's .They gradually declined and now languish in the lower reaches of division 1 along with Plymouth . 3 seasons ago I went to Ipswich to watch them against Wolves in the Championship . I couldn't believe it , myself and my son and grandson sat in a huge empty space in a magnificent stadium . There were only 11000 fans there , now bear in mind that they were playing against the champions elect and the nearest top team fan base wise is Norwich some 40 miles away . The fans didn'
  11. Another phrase that's used a lot by pundits and the media is " pub football " or " Sunday league football " . Don't these " experts "realise that there is more football played in lower level football on Saturdays than just the Football league . ? Sunday league football is ( I think ) somewhat minor in comparison , in terms of teams and leagues . In actual fact the Premiership could almost be regarded as " Sunday league " football now with the pandering to television income . What does pub football mean exactly ? . 4 comments ?
  12. Great character , it's a pity there arn't players like him around today .
  13. One I meant to add in which is used more and more by pundits is " re cycled balls "
  14. Not really a subject for a football forum Older but my thoughts are , yes language does develop BUT !!!! just to make a point on one instance of modern speech . When many people are now in the habit of saying " I was like " it has no meaning , it doesn't explain what they did . In other words did they say it , think it or do it . How many years did our generation struggle with verbs , nouns , adjectives etc Older ? I know I certainly did . They are the basis of the English language and half been for many years . It some ways they are much like pie r squared or similar formula's . How c
  15. What a coincidence Way of , I was going to post the same thing last week . In normal everyday life people calling men and women " guys " , constantly saying " wow " , ignoring the verb and saying " like " and answering a question with " absolutely " does that mean " yes " or " no " and " amazing " when its not . In football , I agree with you , PLUS " a quality ball or pass " good quality or poor quality ? . " unbelievable " ? " he'll be disappointed with that " " from the get go " what's wrong with from the start or beginning ? In my other sport motorsport the o
