  1. Hi I went to get my tickets after picking up the kids from school. I asked how many they had sold and was told that it's about 6 k with away fans.
  2. My kids asking for pies after 3 mins. Sitting next to a bloke that smokes a pipe so mutch that he smells like a bonfire!
  3. And still some people don't want to get the jab or where a mask!
  4. My wife was pissed off with the coverage on Ifollow! For some reason it would not switch over to the commentary from radio Stoke. The dudes from Newport were saying that the crime rate is hie in stoke that is why there was some trouble in the crowd. Witch my wife did not see on the stream and they all so said that players from Vale are not used to playing any one with skill. I had stoke on the radio in my headphones and Bezer did a grate job so thanks for that mate. I all so think that phill does a good job. I know some of you don't like the stuff on radio stoke but as a blind person I am so very grateful for it.

  9. This is what most of stoke-on-trent voted for. So suck it up. O yeah and when when you cant get stuff for xmas then blame your votes for brexit. I f king hate that my kids will suffer because of the people that voted for all this crap. No cash for schools, youthclubs, to help blind people like me get in to work, all the rentel houses falling to bits and city centres crawling with rats, dust heads and rubbish. You write wing lot can kiss my a hole. More people living on the streets more crime is all you are going to get when people have no hope no chances.

  18. 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.
  19. The EFL / FA need to do more to stop this kind of thing going on.
