    It is poor. I get it that some fans come on the train and a lot want to beat traffic, but I agree it's becoming more regular. One thing I have noticed though is since I moved from the top of SK1 to L1, how quickly I got out of the ground on Saturday. Would literally have to sit around for 15 minutes after the final whistle before the staircases started moving. That said, I wouldn't swap seeing Maguire's equaliser for any amount of time saved on my journey home or worse, into town.

    The joke thread

    My computer said I needed a new password so I chose beef stew. It rejected the password saying it wasn't stroganoff.
  7. This could get away from us here if we're not careful- need a couple of wickets fast.

    What grinds my gears...

    Ours is around five days before you hit the trigger points. I worked with someone once who reckoned his place of work (local authority related, I think) actually had a sickness day allowance. He said that some people would say they still had "8 days sick to take" and would use it like annual leave. This would've been what, 20-25 years ago. Don't know how accurate that is but I was baffled. Oldies had it well easy back in the day

    Depression

    Daz, you’ve been talking about making changes for quite a while now. I’m sure postponing things for a few months won’t matter in the grand scheme of things when you look at the bigger picture. What you have done (many times) is set out your intention and put it out there. Have you ever heard of the Law of Attraction? It basically suggests that if we continually set out our intention, the universe will eventually conspire and make it happen for us. Inspired by a book called ‘The Secret’ some people think it’s all bollux but others swear by it. A few years ago I was encouraged by my then coach to write my ‘future history’. You basically project yourself forward in time and write down what you want your life to be like - in as much detail as possible. I did this exercise in ‘08 for 12 months in the future. It felt weird and a waste of time and then lo and behold I read what I’d written a year later and nothing much had changed. I figured it was all BS and Voodoo and dismissed it but kept putting the same intention/goals/dreams/aspirations out there anyway. Then in 2011 everything changed and pretty much EXACTLY how I’d written it 3 years previously. It freaked me out big time but I started to believe there was something in it so I encouraged friends and clients to do the same. For some it’s worked already and for others they’re still waiting for the universe to conspire. I know this post won’t be for everyone and will be dismissed, but you seem the kind of dude who just might give it a go. With love, Izzy
  12. Two interesting words ' experts predict ' these so called experts I remember said the IT systems will collapse in the year 2000 unless the government spents billions on there security systems and recently they said the UK economy and pound will crash if we vote Leave.

    I've got to say, a bit of staying power is great, but I've seen Chris Tavare bat a few times live for England and it wasn't pretty. He'd be made for this. Played some very important innings in his time but the viewing could best be described as painful.

    Reckon he has the ability to be a success at Leicester too then. Marvellous stuff !

    The interplay between the forwards, wingers and 10 is way better than it was last season. Sure if you look at outright stats it doesn't show many chances created, but that's highly influenced by grabbing a fortunate 2-0 lead and a man sent off, meaning it didn't need to be hell for leather football. We changed our system to see out the win, which we did comfortably. Where I see encouragement is in the one-two's and passing between the team as it's so much crisper than last year when we literally just passed the ball from side-to-side for 60 minutes. In fact I'd argue that's what Wolves did in the second half, they had plenty of the ball but did nothing with it. Even with 10 men I can think of a number of situations with Gray, Ricardo, Chilwell and Ndidi where we probably one pass away from making a clear cut opportunity. Some of those we did test the keeper or put it wide in fact. We will see what happens during the rest of the season but personally I see a big improvement with the team and am hoping that equates to scoring more goals and winning more games. Last season we had plenty of the ball but our passing was slow, ponderous and in front of the opposition making it easy to defend. Early signs show way more passing between the lines, with Maddison, Ricardo and oddly enough Ndidi the players making this happen. Puel is coaching a young team of players well and there are notable improvements especially among the younger players.

    Man united are that bad, how did we do against them, so how good are we?. Jose may not be at United come the end of the season, but either way, they will comfortably finish above us, and could get just about any player in the world to sign for them, I hate them, but they are a massive club, and if they really wanted maguire, he’d be there now, they would have paid the money, and maguire wouldn’t have thought twice.

    I think we all know Stokes is capable of it despite his aggressive tendencies. Buttler, on the other hand, has really dug in too, unusual for him as he usually edges it when he does that.

    I was thinking this last night, what is he doing? Least these two are showing a bit of fight, the top four should be ashamed.

    The bigger teams all manage to achieve having quality on the bench, who may well not be happy about that, but they still contribute when called upon and so give these teams great options and cover and help them maintain a consistent set of results. Obviously these teams have more money and pull than us, and so we can't expect to have world class players on the bench like they do, but I see no reason why we can't have some top players to call upon when required. It frustrates me that we have this mentality that we must keep every squad player happy and so we have to make do with "squad fillers", who neither compete or push the starting 11 for a place OR are able to provide like for like cover when we have injuries or suspensions or want to try and win cups!

    good batting by Buttler and Stokes here. Proper digging in you'd expect from higher up the batting order. This kind of batting goes against the nature of both these batsmen as well - the aggressive, offensive style - so it's even more impressive that they've stuck in for a few hours.
  22. I just can't believe the letter got leaked, I mean who would do such a thing?
  23. Totally agree, as he states the fans are key, results are not everything, string of bad results, if the masses turn, the chairman has no option

    It’s like walking off the golf course after 14 holes, really don’t see the point unless you have to be somewhere!?!

    Politics Thread (encompassing Brexit) - 21 June 2017 onwards

    I swear we were all panicking because we were preparing for a no deal last month. Ah we are stockpiling, now it’s ‘ah we are not stockpiling enough’. On a positive note for some you remainers, at least this will kill off a load of the oap brexiteers you wanted dead not so long ago.
