  1. Name a better option than puel

    I seriously don't get what people expect? 7th is our ceiling, we simply don't have the financial power to compete with the big boys. Just let him build something, if it goes to pot next season then fair enough but who would seriously come here if we're sacking managers for finishing in the top half?
  2. Name a better option than puel

    There's talk of Wagner but nothing of somebody who's done an even better job at Brighton, maybe because he's English and that is uncool in managerial terms.
  3. Burnley post match 2-1 loss

    Are you flirting with me?
  4. Burnley post match 2-1 loss

    My Burnley supporting mate says that we were one of the best sides to go to Turf Moor this season and if it wasn't for Pope then we'd have got at least a point. It is frustrating but I'm absolutely willing to allow Claude to bring some of his own players in and see what he can do with them.
  5. Politics Thread (encompassing Brexit) - 21 June 2017 onwards

    The whole situation is a shambles and a shambles that Theresa May really shouldn't be getting us involved in. The use of a chemical weapon is disgusting and inhumane, Assad is an animal, as Mr. Trump says. However this war has gone on for 8 years now, millions of lives have been obliterated, the opposition are not going to win, the Syrian army with the backing of the Russian army is far too strong. Dropping bombs on Syrian army strongholds will literally just prolong the agony and cause a reaction from Assad which will lead to more deaths, will create more refugees (which I'm sure we'd be unwilling to take in) and will ruin lives. Please just learn from the mistakes of Iraq and Libya, western intervention doesn't work, we can't police things. If she goes ahead with this then I would say that that'll be the beginning of the end for Mrs. May. The majority of the British public just don't have the appetite for war anymore, Tony Blair put pay to that.
  6. Since their new manager Tite came in, Brazil have been absolutely flying. I think if they're there psychologically then they'll be very hard to stop. Otherwise Spain look a massive threat and you always have to put the Germans up there. France and Belgium have strong squads, Argentina, Colombia and Uruguay will be dangerous and keep an eye on Morocco, Nigeria and Egypt to shock a few teams.
  7. Puel In or Out - A simple Poll

    Just ridiculous, his track record is superb if you look at his whole career.
  8. Premier League, 2017-2018 Season Thread

    Following on from the Spurs game yesterday I think Gareth Southgate deserves some credit. Drops Alli for England and tells him to up his game, first game back he bags a brace, exactly what he'd have been looking for.

    You're correct about number 4, hobbies are important because they're our release from work and family stresses so I would keep encouraging her to try something new. I'm also a big believer in positive expressed emotion theories, basically if you surround yourself with positive people, it'll bring you up, negativity will bring you down so point 2 is also important if she is in a negative environment at home, I'm not sure what can be done with regards to that apart from being supportive and positive around her. Finally it's hard to counsel a loved one, the vested emotion will make it very difficult so don't be too in her face with regards to finding solutions to this issue. Encourage her, be positive around her, tell her she's great, if she really wants to move forward she'll firstly need to accept that she could be in a better place mentally which it sounds like she's doing.

    I think that sacking Owen Smith maybe the biggest mistake Jeremy Corbyn has made so far. There are a lot of us Labour voters who are anti-brexit but pro-Corbyn and it's a bit of a tug of war as to which is the more important cause, but I honestly think this will alienate a lot of people. I indeed am alienated.
  12. I'm going at the start of May so hopefully it'll be a bit warmer. Hitting NYC, Boston, Montreal and Toronto and a bit of the rural area of New England.
  13. Girlfriend dumped me 2 months ago, booked myself a trip to the North East of the USA then into Canada, it's only a 3 week solo trip as I work but it's something I always wanted to do. Could be the maddest thing I've ever done and I have no idea what it'll be like but there's no harm in finding out.

    She was also home secretary before and oversaw many of the cuts to the public services. Ask any member of the Police what they think of Theresa May and you won't get anything other than a very negative response.
  15. Depression

    University is absolutely brutal. In my final year I saw it turn people who were relatively level headed into mush and that includes myself. My sleep was horrendous, I'd have sleepless nights and to this day I have no idea why. We put so much pressure on ourselves to not only succeed academically but to also indulge in the university life. Since university my social life has actually improved, ok there's not so much of the drinking and spontaneous nights out but there's maturity, there's the ability to surround myself with my type of people, there's nights at the pub and there's work mates. One of my favourite quotes which resonates with me from my time at uni is what I read in Matt Haig's Reasons to Stay Alive originally by Haruki Murakami. It goes: "Once the storm is over you won’t remember how you made it through, how you managed to survive. You won’t even be sure, in fact, whether the storm is really over. But one thing is certain. When you come out of the storm you won’t be the same person who walked in. That’s what this storm’s all about.”
