  1. As I said, it’s all matter of taste. That Jack Wotsit with the blue hair jumped about all over the place but I thought he was awful.
  2. Agree about Sam Fender. I thought Gallagher was awful - cacophonous row but that’s just a matter of taste.
  3. Well the audience enjoyed and so did I. Singing along drowned out any problems she had!
  4. At what point does the fetus become a viable human outside of the womb? 22-24 weeks? Prior to that a women should have the right to terminate the pregnancy. After that abortion should only be considered in limited circumstances. For example, if the mother’s life is at risk or if the pregnancy is a result of rape.
  5. But what if the woman hasn’t invited the man but he just barges his way in there against her will?
  6. Confirmation of what we all know - Gibbo left for more money. Don’t blame the lad at all - it’s a short career. He needs to go where he can make the best wage. Similarly, the club has to decide what risks to take and what not to take. Neither side has done anything wrong.
  7. I would have loved for Gibbo to stay but the club has to be realistic. I don’t know what sort of money he was on for his last contract but I wouldn’t mind guessing his actual cost per game to the club was on a par with some of the higher paid players. And don’t forget, when we went on that amazing 8 wins 9 games run after Colchester he didn’t play in any of them. He was a very good player but the team managed well without him during that period. So let’s put this fiction about “binning him off” to bed once and for all. We made him an offer, he didn’t like it and walked. His decision, not the club’s.
  8. Proctor had spent much of his career higher than league 2.
  9. I’m actually quite pleased we haven’t signed Telford. Up to February last season he scored 24 league goals. In the last three months he scored one more. In the 7 seasons since his debut prior to last season he had scored 13 league goals. So does the process allow us to sign a bloke who has a good six months but is a non scoring striker for the rest of his career?? I very much doubt we were even after Telford with a record like that so to suggest ourselves and every other team in Leagues One and Two can’t afford to compete with Crawley is just daft in my opinion!
  10. And we’ve missed out on that Mane youth from L’pool as well. Bloody disgraceful.
  11. So the behaviour of the PM is just a distraction and people don’t care about it? Tell that to the voters of Tiverton and Wakefield.
  12. I heard that last year he only wanted to sign one year because he had really wanted to go to League 1.
  13. That non-review of the Mitchell LBW will come back to haunt us.
  14. The Newcastle website has 8 pre-season games listed and Vale aren't one of them.
  15. I don’t think anyone has ever doubted Gibbo’s commitment to the club. It’s his availability that has concerned the management. Fair enough.
  16. Bale would miss half the season when he goes to the World Cup, gets injured and is out until July. No thanks!
  17. With regard to building next season’s squad, my Dad had a favourite saying when he was doing a job and I interfered. He’d say “only fools and children see thing half done.”
  18. Perhaps we didn’t think he is worth the risk of matching Rovers offer? Perhaps we offered what we thought was the best deal in view of his injury record?
