    I think all teams in our league have had games called off, so the fixture backlog will be the same for all teams.

    with playing 2 games in a week they would just cut out all the strenuous stuff in training 

    ive never played at any level, I was into distance running, I know people who used to run a marathon every Sunday, but they wouldn’t do any running during the week, same applies here.

    Unless your name is Eddie Izzard!

  2. But Labour klaxon going off a lot on this thread too now 


    I have voted labour the last 3 elections. I believe in helping out those less fortunate and making sure everyone succeeds.


    First thing we agree on I think LV

     Did you meet at the Farage fan club? 

    Same person as KKKarl?

    I was wondering where he went. What did he say that was such a crime?

    Why don't you ask Packmoor? They joined just after Sunny left, they both use the same grammar and have the same political views.

    All hail the king of smug

    On one hand you have got the head of the UK health service telling me that it is too early to know for sure how this is going to play out and on the other Ive got LeedsValiant telling me it's all going to be ok. How do I know who to believe?

    Correct. Just wait till New Year, we will get clobbered from all sides. This is Brexit a disaster for the UK

    That is obvious to most but some just dig their heels in because they cannot handle being wrong. Anyone trying to argue that Brexit is an overwhelming success needs their bonce looking at.

    Quick change of subject. Deflection tactics as usual. Never a bad word said about your precious brexit boys. Shows you up

    Spot on. Whilst I am fully vaccinated I also appreciate that we live in a free society and I must respect why some people refuse to be vaccinated. However, as Bill states it is these people that are at risk to themselves and everyone that they come into contact with.

    I also have a friend whose 29 year old daughter has been diagnosed with a possible blood clot in her leg; she can’t get into hospital due to the lack of beds. How many beds are being taken up due to other peoples selfishness. Please, please think about the big picture before you decide not to be vaccinated.

    Somewhat ironic writing on this site when a fair proportion are unvaccinated footballers. Sorry for going off-topic.

    Absolutely right. Same goes for those who constantly shouting about how masks don't work etc, get vaccinated and get your mask on and shut up. It isn't rocket science. If you choose not to then fine, don't spend all your spare time trying to persuade people to do the same based on pseudoscience and facebook epidemiologists. Don't tell me it is all SAGE's doing or Whitty when the rest of Europe is looking the same. Does Whitty tell France, Germany and Holland what to do as well? 

    Get vaccinated people. It is the quickest way out.

    His wife is not part of the goverment, shes not a minister so pretty strange work meeting 

    I've not been to many meetings where the bosses wife and kid sit at the table. No laptops, no notepads, no pens or anything for taking notes. Yeah definitely a work meeting that one.

    So, if the allegations are untrue and that’s the basis of you thinking he is a scumbag, does that mean you retract your opinions on him?

    Link doesn't work. Are we calling wetherspoons workers liars now then too? 


    As I stated just before, there are plenty of reasons to dislike him without focusing too much on brexit. 

    Aggressively squeezing small independent pubs out of every town centre, same with sizzlers and Greene King. 

    Breaking electoral law by filling wetherspoons magazine with a pro brexit bias. 

    Threatened to not pay staff before furlough

    Held a Brexit debate at spoons in Manc and kicked out anyone who didn't agree with brexit 

    McDonalds of the pub world is the best description I have read on Spoons. 

    Look up his business practices if you want to google any more about him!

    Many large multi million pound companies furloughed their staff, at the end of the day Wetherspoons were forced to close unlike some other companies who still furloughed their staff to increase profits. Their were other companies who encouraged furloughed staff to help out with essential jobs like supermarket working so why aren’t they scumbags? Oh yes…..they didn’t speak out about the EU.

    Or maybe we are just chatting about spoons?

    But I still don’t know why you think he is a scumbag, your first reason is untrue and your second reason you didn’t mean it?.

    You love assumptions. We are talking about Wetherspoons not other companies. I haven't seen anywhere where it says the video message didn't happen. 43000 staff it went out to. 

    I never said I didn't mean it. 

    I said it wasn't because he was a millionaire,  I have no problem with wealth creation. I do have issues with people who exploit others with low paying jobs and threatening to not pay people when they have the means to do so themselves. 

    I will leave my mouth open for your next lot of words to put into it.

    The reports that the papers said regarding supermarkets turned out to be untrue and they have since apologised, so anyone who makes millions is a scumbag?

    You do love to put words into my mouth. No, because I said one guy was a scumbag doesn't mean that I think every millionaire is a scumbag

  15. Just now, philpvfc said:

    Not my hero…..don’t really know too much about him tbh. So why is he a scumbag?

    Telling his furloughed workers via video message that the supermarkets were hiring and telling his staff that furlough pay would be slow and to hang in there, after turning over hundreds of millions in profit previously...for one.

    Just because he supported Brexit. Is everyone who supported Brexit a scumbag in your opinion?

    No not at all, of course not. Bit of a leap there!

    There are many reasons for Tim Martin being a scumbag without bringing Brexit into it but I guess because he voted Brexit he is your hero?

    Is this the person who questioned why tv news presenters wear poppies to mark Remembrance Day?

    Relevance of that?

    Is that why the red wall turned blue in 2019?

    Globally,things have got worse for everybody in the last few years because of this pandemic.


    The red wall turned blue because of false promises of delivering a Brexit of some sort. You know this. Pandemic or no pandemic things have gotten steadily worse in terms of pay, jobs, taxes and a lot more since 2010. Not everything can be blamed on the pandemic.

    Don't worry folks it will turn full circle as it usually does in this country every now and again.People get fed up and want a change after about thirteen or fourteen years.

    Having lived through four Tory and four Labour goverments,nothing really changes too much.

    It has changed though, that is the point you are blind to. Life for the working man has got progessively worse every year of this tory government

    I don't think anyone is insinuating that you'd be happy if people died from cancer but it is a consequence of supporting draconian actions.



    It is a bit early to be wrong already today isn't it? The post from Eh up Nah has been removed, it was one of the more disgusting posts on this thread and was very personal abuse. I think you are right it wasn't insinuating the point it was a solid accusation that me, Fosse and Tommy Tunstall would be happy people are dying of or with (Seems important these days) cancer
