    Not by me. I didn't know the full story and I still don't. I have Browny's statement which seems to suggest a 'solution' was needed, but no real idea as to what the problem was or the desired solution would have been. Deliberately leaving PW off the statement shows no love lost perhaps, but again it's one side of the story.

    Sad to see him go but too many fans reading one side of the story and immediately jumping to conclusions about who or what was to blame.
  3. Always astounded by how much people over-analyse and over-react to a first pre-season game. Happens every season. I remember when we beat Premier League Bradford and Sunderland back-to-back pre-season. We stormed the league that year...oh no wait. We finished mid-table.
  4. His movement and intelligence were as good as anyone I've seen in a long time, which is the reason why he's done so well given his size. (Kosy was not in the same league...his often wayward decision making and end product meant he flattered to deceive. Combined with his disciplinary, it was no loss at all when he went as far as I was concerned). But can only base my opinion on what I saw. His goals all came in that promising start he had. He didn't look the same player from the end of January onwards. I know the wages we paid him were below what he ideally wanted which prob
  5. Brown will be a huge loss but credit to Wild, the club and his plans are bigger than any player. Tough decision for him to make. Redshaw on his day was very good but how many of those days did we see? He failed to deliver time after time and to be honest he hasn't looked interested for a long time. Thought TSS might have been released but can't fault his heart if nothing else. OK as a second/third choice striker. Otherwisetl the list looks about right. Obviously a few of the players offered contracts will leave too. Hope we get some height in the team and some athleticism.
  6. I stumbled across this on Twitter and thought about your post, Bubba. There's so much to say about this picture that I don't really know where to start!
  7. Belgium and their colonies in the 1950s at the hands of King Leopold, who killed 15 million Africans.
  8. The right and left both have validity in most cases (obviously not the extremist views). But it seems that a lot of people are so entrenched one way or another that they are quick to place labels on anyone who doesn't support their view. Balance is needed (sounding like a star wars film now!) I have been called both a gammon and a libtard in social media!
  9. Meant far left clearly. No admittance of anything but you have proved my point about divisiveness.
  10. I've not seen anything about Downing Street on Twitter, and I'm not sure about all races having history of slavery (could be true, I don't know), but there needs to be a some restraint in the actions and demands of BLM/the left or else the divide will increase... which is the opposite of what the movement wants to achieve.
  11. How dare people vote differently!
  12. It is rich yes. Both sides are as guilty of being stubborn, blinkered and often extremist in their views.
  13. Completely agree. Why is it not possible to have any balance in this country? I consider myself centered in my political views, but whenever I've heard people say that the far left can be as dangerous as the far right I never really believed it. But I do now. The country is more divided now than I've ever known it. A combination of Brexit, COVID-19 and BLM in quick succession has done a lot of of damage.
  14. Like I said... unsubstantiated. Not defending his breaking of the lock down rules at all. But this is he said, she said. People will choose to believe it and I'm not necessarily saying he didn't say it, but that's power of the press. People will believe whatever is in print if it suits their agenda, and not believe it of it does not suit their agenda. Partisan politics as ever.
  15. He said, she said. Unnamed sources say he said it in a private conversation He may well have done, but all I'm saying is that it can't be considered factual.
  16. Whilst his position is clearly untenable and the Govt rush to support him is indefensible, this quote is completely unsubstantiated.
  17. It looks out of date as of 21st April?
  18. I'd pay £200. But the number of subscribers will be much lower than the number who would buy a normal season ticket. However we are in this for the long haul so clubs will need to start looking at innovative ways to make money if a behind closed doors season is to be viable at our level.
  19. Probably, but political spin, smear campaigns, manipulation of media and other kinds of 'foul play' have existed since the dawn of politics and all parties are equally guilty. Personally I think Hoddie's version is most likely.
  20. He claims he's seeking the truth, but like all conspiracy theorists he already has pre-determined ideas as to what his truth is i.e. the most outlandish/shocking/interesting theory possible from whatever information and misinformation he can glean. He's a fantasist. He has consistently shown that when the chips are down and he's faced with issues or counter-arguments which he can't address, he'll ignore them, deflect or throw an insult in. I've got nothing against the guy though. He's a Shayman at the end of the day. I do sometimes wonder if he's just a troll though!
  21. Your point (I think) is that some people who would die soon anyway but contract COVID-19 at the very end of their life are having their deaths recorded as COVID-19. What is the percentage please? Because other people have illnesses they are being treated for and are hopeful of a good prognosis, but COVID-19 puts pay it. Others have illnesses that will kill them one day, maybe this year, maybe next, maybe in 5 years, but COVID-19 finishes them off. Others have existing illnesses that may or may not kill them, with a completely uncertain life expectancy. Others have ill
  22. Remember him well from my early days supporting town as a teenager. Would go into the Weavers and have some good chats with Ron. Really decent bloke in my experience. RIP.
  23. 80k trained and 25k reserve. However on reflection that probably includes personnel who aren't clear for frontline action.
  24. There's only 100k army personnel in the UK, so not enough to police the streets. If that does happen I imagine it will be in the biggest problem urban areas only.
