  1. Exactly. There seems to be a prevailing sympathy for the length of a professional footballers career and their earnings. Like somehow they become unemployable drifters after their career ends. They earn vast sums of money, even way down the pyramid, that makes your average earners lifetime income look small. Post football they are very employable. People love a footballer. Punditry, journalism, even the average job are all areas that they have a celebrity advantage in. Give me a million quid now and I'll be set for life. If they miss-manage their finances during their career it's hard to be massively sympathetic. If you listen to some folk they're burdened with massive wages.
  2. 'you lot get back to your jobs so our advisors can profit from government funding.' No doubt there'll be the usual crowd rushing to the defence of the tory party but they just keep getting worse. They have no regards for the general public.
  3. It shouldn't be met with apathy. Especially given the context - this money is directly linked to a pandemic that has taken >50,000 lives. Totally disgusting from them.
  4. Must have it wrong mate. Tories are salt of the earth, bloody good chaps, look out for the people, wouldn't do wrong by us. Just look at their funny hair and accents. What borderline fraud perpetuated in-party...nothing to see here.
  5. Really thinking I'm going to have to knock ales on the head. I can never have just one, end up getting about ten down me. Not good.
  6. Moaning about playing time. This was last season. Just along the lines of relax etc but it was promoted by some whinging on Mahrez's part
  7. Football wise he's class. It's a stinking attitude that has surfaced repeatedly. Pep, last season, had to tell him to wind his neck in a couple of times. Seems to be costing him dearly.
  8. Everything about discussing the internal affairs of a football club is guesswork. Some is more accurate than others. 3rd in January, with owners who cover the Champions League and openly state they wanted to be there, with a publicly known 80m in the bank from the Maguire sale...do you think he'd have had any trouble improving the squad? I don't. At all. He made his choices and its a valid criticism to say that he got it wrong. You keep going on about 'quality additions' but he hasn't made any. The owners have furnished him with a whacking contract and are obviously happy to invest. Like I said initially, just calling every game outstanding when it isn't real smacks of denial. After 18 months or so he's responsible for the state of the squad and he's chosen a small squad - as his preference - and has failed to add the quality.
  9. You're making excuses for poor planning. Support him all you like but there's a reason we didn't bring in anyone and that is down to Brendan Rodgers. He had time. He has money. This cultish devotion to defending mistakes isn't going to change my mind. It just makes you look a little bit odd. He's made a mistake and deserves to be called out for it. It's not a character assassination and certainly doesn't need you to ride in and defend his honour. He took the gamble of having a small squad AND NOT ADDING TO THE QUALITY WITH THE 80 MILLION WE RECEIVED FOR MAGUIRE and it backfired when we had an injury crisis. The manager of the club carries the can for this.
  10. https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.leicestermercury.co.uk/sport/football/transfer-news/leicester-citys-transfer-priorities-2020-3212977.amp It was before the season started he made the comment about small squads but I'm 99% this was echoed in January. I can't find it off hand. But the point remains. The lack of squad depth was his choice. If you're choosing that then you need to suffer the consequences when it doesn't go well. Not just keep saying it's outstanding.
  11. 'I prefer to work with a small squad' - Brensan Rodgers on not signing anyone in January. He set up this small squad, and didn't want to buy in the depth. If you're going to set out with a patard prepare to be hoisted with it. I'm not saying the guy needs to go. Far from it. But these decisions he makes in the name of his philosophy are also the ones that contribute to his judgement. If he's going to prefer a small squad then his decision needs to be justified. I don't think it has been.
  12. I know this is tongue in cheek but there's more than a grain of truth to it. Lampard has been a real success this year. He's also heaped pressure and scrutiny on his players at times. When they were having a good spell he was very pointed about players not keeping it up losing their place. I can't help but think the 'outstanding effort' is fast becoming the new 'quality and intensity'. At certain points players need a bollocking and I don't think he's got it in him.
  13. I think, like every manager, he'll be judged on his results, yes.
  14. I don't know why people fixate on this. The ONLY people I've ever heard use the weird phrase 'little old Leicester' are Leicester fans. We're medium sized and as old as all the other clubs.
  15. I thought tyke acting was diabolical to the point it was unwatchable.
  16. True charity is anonymous. These folk want the back slapping. There's a fable about that kind of carry on.
  17. Bit of a character flaw to hang around with that snide little shithead Alli. Hope he doesn't start emulating that particular stain.
  18. They add nothing at all. Nothing. The Mrs, as my last two posts in this thread probably reveal, is on a celebrity TV binge. We've got celebrity masterchef on and I can't see what these useless arseholes add to the competition. When it's regular people I find it compelling to see that Brian, retired data analyst from Shropshire, has learnt how to make good own pasta in his autumn years. Its nice to see the skills of regular humans. I do not get the fascination in watching Pete the Pirate from Essex fumble his way round a kitchen playing the part of prize twat to keep his brand alive. Its offensive.
  19. Tell you what really ****s me off - the fact that everything has to have a 'celebrity' version. Gogglebox - absolutely ****ing gormless and offensive TV as a standard - was about watching the reaction of people to television. Why do we now have to have a celebrity version? What do they add? Countdown - the celebration of little Britain intellectuals. Great fun. Tea time filler and something that celebrates the nerds and dorks. Why the **** do celebrities have to get involved in that? What do they add? I could go on but it's annoying me. Anything the general public are involved in soon becomes the reserve of the celebrity and I can't work out where the demands is to see June SarPong struggle her way through some mental arithmetic.
  20. The Kardashians are on TV courtesy of the Mrs and they're whinging about the public wanting to know about their lives. They're utter, utter *****. The audacity of moaning about the public wanting to know about their lives boils my piss. I honestly would not lift a finger to prevent their demise. I hate them so much.
  21. Am I missing something with that joke? What's the funny bit?
  22. No dog in the fight either way. I see both sides of this argument but I very much think schools should take precedent in a shit or bust scenario. Economy isn't as important. Odd scenario though.
  23. Loughborough is, traditionally, forest isn't it? More than a few years ago I was at college there and that was the prevailing team.
  24. He's a Vardy for a different team. Need to play through him. The rumours of him being a dick I can't comment on.
