  1. He's now in his 70s and had had poor health a decade ago so he might not be able to get to many games nowadays. He is a Charles according to previous directorships so I'm disappointed that you haven't had a response. Hopefully he is well.
  2. I don't think they were. Loose women described as "squabbling sour-faced ladies” - which bit, apart from the ladies, is inaccurate. Would sour faced squabbling men have attracted criticism? He described Janet Street-Porter as a “polished turd” and said a “speccy blonde girl” on BBC’s The Apprentice should “piss off”, the only shocking thing is that he didn't want more of them to piss off!!! After Diane Abbott, the shadow home secretary, appeared on BBC’s Question Time, Snell tweeted: “Diane, you are great, then you say something incredibly arsingly stupid.” which is inaccurate though if anything is over complimentary! Exactly who was offended by these comments???? Piers Morgan, Nigel Farage and Paul Nuttall have been called names on here, should everyone be apologising for them? For me there is a massive difference between those tweets and ones suggesting that Israel should be relocated! Yes he called Brexit a pile of rubbish but then isn't that what the Lib Dems and many millions of other remoaners are saying just as many Brexiteers thought that the EU was a pile of poo. We complain about parliament being full of professional politicians who've been groomed to become an MP and then have a go at someone who tweets fairly normal things.
  3. Andrew Neil is only odious if you are the one being interviewed. He's expects people to justify their answers and drills down when they spout clichés or contradict themselves. He is an excellent interviewer.
  4. It's been that long since we've seen Ishmael that I can't remember him doing that! 😉
  5. That'll be handy if Lainton ends up back in goal!
  6. We've scored 4 goals in 4 games, possibly our worst run of the season yet have ten points. I think that says a lot about our defence as a whole which is heavily influenced by Joe.
  7. It's as much about affecting those teams we're playing as picking up points for ourselves. If either any of our last 3 wins had been reversed points aside it would have given teams confidence, Charlton are on a bad run, continued by losing to relegation fodder and this could affect them mentally and cause them to continue their poor run.
  8. Starts
  9. I think it's back to the theory that we don't want to give first team news away to the opposition as we want to win those games whereas it's not about the results at youth level. If anything, and this might sound daft, you want to give the opposition as much info as possible so that they can best prepare to play against us as that will test and develop our youngsters even more. Getting to know our home grown (even if they've only been with us months and not years) players rather than the overpaid mercenaries (none in particular just generic professionals!) helps us feel part of the club so the more we know about our kids the better for the club as a whole. The fans have been much more accepting of poor results whilst the kids have been playing so maybe the club are learning from listening to the fans that youth is the way to our hearts. Too much positivity, struggling to resist sarcasm so will end the post now
  10. It was the luck of where the by election was, there are plenty of potential by elections that the Tories would be in the same position, and it's not long since they lost a safe seat to a party with less than ten seats
  11. I know there have been clashes in Gorton but my experiences of momentum are very few, they seem to be signing up to vote in the Labour Party but doing very little else to get involved. Considering how many recent additions there have been very few have been seen at branch or constituency meetings, nor for campaign events. The only time I've seen a decent turnout was for the leadership endorsement.
  12. The stewards or all the other Bury fans????🐿
  13. We keep on hearing this story, though with different claimants. No Bury fan wants these to continually crop up, those of us who are troubled by the board's actions would love to be sitting in our new ground eating humble pie having just flicked through our accounts and seeing a repeated profit and healthy negative assets. We do not enjoy stories like this. If you are making a stand against something then you announce what you are doing when the bill comes in, you announce it at shareholder meeting, you announce it at fans' forums, you announce it on local radio before the hearing. You do not wait until you've failed to turn up at court and then make a comment.
  14. Yes, but we can't tell you why it's a secret 😛
  15. Having visited Oldham town centre the fact that Boundary Park is out of town can only be viewed as a positive!
