    Why do people read half a thread and wade in with accusations that people are stupid. The conversation was that the Thais have put in 138m = 38m purchase + 100m written off. Someone then said they had conveniently forgotten the fees for numerous players to which I pointed out that they also make a lot of money for being in the premier league. Unless of course you are suggesting that we as one of the 20th richest football clubs in the world, just about break even and every player purchase is subsequently funded from vichais back pocket?

    Conveniently forgetting the couple of hundred mil per year for being in the premier league and a few quid for champions league money?

    Depression

    Definitely. With my.lucky cocktail of depression, up and down weight and high blood pressure, I now exercise every evening for an hour on my exercise bike and it makes me feel better. Mind you I'm also watching Dexter in a room on my own, but I've already been to far down that route In another thread and it didn't really help with the accompanying character assassination. 😂

    Depression

    Good call buce. I read somewhere that a handful of cashews gave the same effect as an anti depressant. Wouldn't recommend it instead but we can't be too happy can we. (We'll I can. My wife sometimes prefers me miserable cos when I'm happy I get naughty) Tried it for a few days. Seemed good then forgot all about it again.

    Depression

    An additional story regarding the drink o a far lower scale than crinkly's. In my extended circle of friends there are a lot suffering with anxiety and/Or depression, and to a man, or woman, everybody suffers tenfold on a hangover. Let's just say after a 40th birthday party directly after the England match there are a lot of people on my Facebook feed venting that their depression/anxiety was bad yesterday. The big difference I would say to you though is that they are long term suffered and knew it was coming. Just a part of the hangover for us so we.know it is to just be endured as there is no way we can enjoy the 12 hour bender induced hangover. You know drink is not the answer, hence you including it in your post, but don't overly worry about being a full blown alcoholic. None of us have quit drinking, just cut down knowing that the hangover will stink. You will get to that point with meds and talking and come through the other side, and you'll be stronger for the experience. My personal life is riddled with shit at the minute but I'm off on holiday tomorrow so **** it. Perspective is the biggest thing that my happy pills deliver (paroxetine 35mg) and the first thing to go with a proper bout of depression. And we do understand what it means to you, that's why we are happy to give the advice. Altruism is another good thing to fend off depression. I help out at youth clubs and also helping with advice on this thread also improves your self worth. See you on the other side when you can pass on your specific experiences. At least yours has a start point 😂 Mines just hereditary bullshit.

    Depression

    Page 67 onwards on this thread is a great place to start reading. Some good conversations had and proof that the advice taken has worked for people, as well as unfortunate reminder of the worst case scenario and why offloading here is good. Good luck fella. I'd offer you my inbox but I fly to tenerife tomorrow and have no idea what internet access will be like

    Depression

    Don't apologise. The first thing I would say is thanks for coming here and offloading. My initial thoughts are the professional treatment side. I will dig out an old post of mine but ultimately put pressure on your gp. Often unfortunately that alone involves gathering what inner strength you have left just to get through that but it's worth it. If.you can't get past reception, mention suicidal thoughts. Harsh but chances are you have had them judging by the time of this. Keep your chin up and make sure your gp takes responsibility. There are an almost endless list of anti depressants and what works for one doesn't work for another. Medication. Step 1. Step 2. Get referred for counselling. Step 3. Don't bottle it up. This is a great place to offload, and don't feel bad if there is no-one you can talk to. I love my wife to bits but when I'm down (And I've never had anything as traumatic as yours sounds to trigger it) Unfortunately, she cannot make me feel better and ends up saying the wrong things. Chin up chap.

    Mahrez to Man City shock

    Fair dos as per my reply to bad about bender induced hangover rants. Not getting on what happens at your club as I genuinely don't care (in the nicest possible way 😉) As I said to bad, fully understand where you are coming from but I do believe you will be genuinely surprised at just how good a player mahrez is. As I've also said elsewhere, I want this move to happen for mahrez. He deserves it. Not for his airport hopping since we won the league, but for what he did in getting us to the premier league and obviously winning it. Is like to think I'm mature enough to not begrudge him the success I believe will come for him, and as a result, continued success for your boys. Always found man city fans to be some of the best but reading the comments on mahrez, and then your post, well let's just say you lit my fuse. 😂

    Mahrez to Man City shock

    Good response, and very much in line with what we see of vardy vs what England see of him. And remarkably more polite than my soap box pounding probabmpbbpvly deserved. I think I might try not to post on a 12hr bender induced hangover. Cheers bud. Excellent post and fwiw I certainly wouldn't be tinkering with it now, and mostly blame Southgate that sterling or alli as he has been 8n a position to change it during the game. How alli made 120 mins against Columbia is beyond me. It's coming home

    Mahrez to Man City shock

    Wow, just wow. You support a better team in man city, therefore we have formed our opinions based upon media assassinations of sterling. I've hardly read anything about England. I have formed my opinion solely based upon the shite that he has dished up. Him and alli are the weak links. At least alli can point to an injury but shit confidence that has only come about through shit performances is the best that sterling can have. At least by the time the euros comes around he will be nowhere near the team. You guys don't realise just how good mahrez is. He will walk into sterling's place and maybe then you will see what the rest of the world has seen this world cup. Your team is superior, you however have mistaken that for meaning that your opinion is superior. Even great teams can have shit players and you have proven they can and do also have stupid fans. You don't deserve riyhad.

    Slimani - Wants to leave

    Fair comments from all (some more than others 🤣) but it's clear he doesn't want to be a plan b and hasn't been very good at it for us. As a target man, well he's just not much of one, but Andy Carroll certainly is. I wouldn't be averse to it.

    Colombia v England - last 16 round - 03/07 at 19:00ko

    Vardy 2, wins sterling's place. That was the moment we won the world cup

    Colombia v England - last 16 round - 03/07 at 19:00ko

    This is why I struggle with England. I try to support them but you can't give the benefit of doubt to alli and sterling. They've been shit all tournament Gerremoff!

    Tax and accountancy matters.

    He's at w9ork and there's a football match tonight so answer won't be this side of the England match. 😂 I started drafting a reply and it's a long one. (With lots of disclaimers 😂) The quick crux of which is that you escape the erosion of the higher rate tax relief, (but even that could screw you elsewhere by pushing other earnings I to higher rate) Dividends would save some tax but even that is being eroded.

    Tax and accountancy matters.

    After helping to kick the mahrez to man city thread off on a tangent, and realising I enjoyed it like the geeky accountant I am, I thought I'd start this thread and offer any help/advice I can. I am a qualified accountant who now runs a general accountancy practice and have started moving toward specialising in tax efficiency planning. I also spent 15 years running accounts departments in predominantly family owned businesses. IR35 Sole trader, partnership accounts and personal tax. Limited company accounts and tax planning. Etc. Promise I'm not touting for business. Just happy to help in the minefield that is difficult even for us who pay thousands of pounds a year in training seminars etc.

    Pre-Season Training

    I just like to think that behind maddisons pretty smile, there is a ruthless streak (serial killer)

    Pre-Season Training

    James maddison bringing donuts for his colleagues a is Dexter. Love it.
  21. At least I can understand that as a reasonable season for stowell to still be here. If we have a similar season, the shit bits are obviously stowell responsibility next season. By 2030 it might be Ruskin who has to fall on puels sword. (When I typed puel, auto correct gave "You mad bastard" as an option.)

    Pedantry Central

    Hahaha. Missed that. Googled it and assumed I'd chosen the right one. I'm not even changing it now as you deserve that one. I blame auto correct. I wrote principale.

    Pedantry Central

    We had a vice principle (Just had to Google principal/principle such is the nature of this thread 😂) have all the boys in the class in year 8 in for a bollocking, and told us we were making a rod for our own bikes. Now I can't pretend I knew what she meant, but I damn sure knew she was wrong. And to top it off, she told the really shy (gormless) lad to take that gormless look off his face. He couldn't. That was his face.

    Depression

    And to take the medical angle, have you been diagnosed with depression? Are you on medication? If not, should you be? If you are, do you need a dose increase? Not much more people can say than what has been said but this is a good thread for a well timed pick me up if you need one. But my concern is the big one, ie your kids not caring if you're here or not. If reading between the lines, these thoughts are as dark as they could be interpreted as, whether for the first time or after a "wobble" if you are a long time sufferer. Man cannot live on bread and water alone, and I believe depression can't be managed on talking or meds alone. It needs both. I guess what I'm struggling to get to is, see your gp for the medication side, as well as using this place for the talking side of it. Chin up debs. I'm quite a black and white kind of guy, and when you're head is in the right place, they CAN all be solved/taken with perspective (which is the biggest thing generally missing with depression) Fella - knob head, we all are. Better off without him. Job - Get a new one, boss is probably a knob head. Kids are Definitely knob heads,and selfish ones at that. But talk them. It's not easy for others to understand as we don't really understand it ourselves. I dare say you are most probably.doing better than you think you are with the house and kids,and my personal favourite 're wondering why you get up in the morning. Take a duvet day, nothing bad comes from sleeping too much. You are an adult who is in charge of yourself. If you can take a day off to recharge your batteries, even if it is going back to bed after making sure the kids don't burn their cornflakes, better than 3 months off with burn out.
  25. I love it so much that I'm going down tomorrow to get 5 so me and my too many kids can all look like matching twats on holiday. And now the discount is gone for season ticket holders I'll probably spend more than seen dyche this transfer window. But I'm not knocking the lack of discount, I'll be able to get 2 "free" lunch boxes and a Leicester city suit case one minute before midnight the day the "loyalty" points expire.
