  1. Me and the wife and kids go down to see the @PVFCWomen play at home some times. They some times play on the pitches at Dimensions. Haven't bin down since the end of lockdown tho. Will have to go down again soon.
  2. Hi there Andy. I know things can be hard this time of year. Like all the others say pleas find some one to talk to dude. It's hard. I have a wife, but have still found it hard to open up because you feel you are being like a wingebag! Trust me most people don't mind chatting things over with you. Good luck mate.
  3. Come on people. He is out on lone so just leave the lad alone.
  4. What is just what a 14 year old needs. We don't need to make a crim out of him he can still change and see that what did was rong.
  5. There was too messages sent. One of the lads is just 14. He went to school with my sun who is the same age. I hope the 14 year old can be helped to understand that it's not OK. People at that age can do very daft things. I am happy about the older bloke getting a ban.

    WTF is this?
  7. I am so glad that people and the club came out and spoke up and said that we will not be having crap like that in the name of the club! It's not OK not any day!
  8. The mins silence on rememberence day.or when one of our fans has died is to show respect. The taking a knee is political.All lives mater so why qualify it with black... "All lives matter" is wrong. Imagine that you're sitting down to dinner with your family, and while everyone else gets a serving of the meal, you don't get any. So you say "I should get my fair share." And as a direct response to this, your dad corrects you, saying, "everyone should get their fair share." Now, that's a wonderful sentiment -- indeed, everyone should, and that was kinda your point in the first place: that you should be a part of everyone, and you should get your fair share also. However, dad's smart-ass comment just dismissed you and didn't solve the problem that you still haven't gotten any! The problem is that the statement "I should get my fair share" had an implicit "too" at the end: "I should get my fair share, too, just like everyone else." But your dad's response treated your statement as though you meant "only I should get my fair share", which clearly was not your intention. As a result, his statement that "everyone should get their fair share," while true, only served to ignore the problem you were trying to point out. That's the situation of the "black lives matter" movement. Culture, laws, the arts, religion, and everyone else repeatedly suggest that all lives should matter. Clearly, that message already abounds in our society. The problem is that, in practice, the world doesn't work the way. You see the film Nightcrawler? You know the part where Renee Russo tells Jake Gyllenhal that she doesn't want footage of a black or latino person dying, she wants news stories about affluent white people being killed? That's not made up out of whole cloth -- there is a news bias toward stories that the majority of the audience (who are white) can identify with. So when a young black man gets killed (prior to the recent police shootings), it's generally not considered "news", while a middle-aged white woman being killed is treated as news. And to a large degree, that is accurate -- young black men are killed in significantly disproportionate numbers, which is why we don't treat it as anything new. But the result is that, societally, we don't pay as much attention to certain people's deaths as we do to others. So, currently, we don't treat all lives as though they matter equally. Just like asking dad for your fair share, the phrase "black lives matter" also has an implicit "too" at the end: it's saying that black lives should also matter. But responding to this by saying "all lives matter" is willfully going back to ignoring the problem. It's a way of dismissing the statement by falsely suggesting that it means "only black lives matter," when that is obviously not the case. And so saying "all lives matter" as a direct response to "black lives matter" is essentially saying that we should just go back to ignoring the problem. TL;DR: The phrase "Black lives matter" carries an implicit "too" at the end; it's saying that black lives should also matter. Saying "all lives matter" is dismissing the very problems that the phrase is trying to draw attention to.
  9. The EFL / FA need to do more to stop this kind of thing going on.

  13. No you don't have to do any legalizing and state control. Just let people pay a small price at a drug testing senter. Plus stop making criminals out of people who just want to get hi. Pushing people to the edges of society because they get hi is not the way.
