Copied all those; the Indian Electrical thingy one was a bit risqué. You must be very PC person to find most of these jokes/gaffes upsetting.
If he was directly connected to the club in some form or other we would be all over him. As it is Arsenal have some connection ...typical!

ps Glad the thread made 10 pages - bit hard work tho' Grin

The draw was worse for us, we were at home and if we hoped to stay up these were the games we should have been winning.


Am talking about the here and now! Not if
Consider this; we are one point behind Wigan whilst BR are now 3pts and all have played 41games! BR may need two games to catch Wigan? All I said that we were in my opinion slightly better off than BR after Sat game. Of course it would be better with a win Roll Eyes

Good luck with that - have you followed this advice?

Democratic?
Bless, I think you’ve got your words mixed up Evers.
You seem to do a lot of postings on here that folks don’t understand.
I wonder if it’s you or the rest of us? Is that democratic enough fit you?

You are not of this world are you?

Hallelujah, the Cobblers being the only league 1 game to be played on Friday finally justifies this as an NTFC forum  topic.
Hats off to our Mods they obviously knew this is how things would pan out. Still not sure it worthy of so much Cobblers fans banter though? I personally am not a fan of political threads on a fans forum - there is enough for us to find differences with if we stick to Cobblers subjects, so when we open up to this nonsense it just depresses me that people who have so much in common with me (one of the 0.00005% of UK population that actively support the Cobbs) can have views that I personally find very depressing.
Now is surely the time to move this bollocks to the Doris thread?

You still keep reading a thread that you don't agree with, which I find very odd. There's another 20 or so topics on the first page alone. Maybe try one of them?

Not very democratic are you.

Could not agree more with you there. Oh and if you do some research you will find that you are under no legal obligation to pay the license fee.

So how did you get on by taking that stance?
7  The Hotel End / Cobblers Corner / Re: HRH The Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh R.I.P. on: April 13, 2021, 21:52:53 pm
So only Us and Posh in league 1 have respect for royalty. Probably a similar percentage to the rest of the country then.

 Cool Give up trying to follow the chain of thought - thanks  anyway Grin

I was only being flippant🙂 What about the other 6 teams, and it was scheduled for Saturday, regardless of whether we would have been playing Tuesday or not. I'm not bothered, just wondered why we were the only game moved to Friday.

Respect  Cool - no bad thing I suppose Shocked

I would say ‘The vast outpouring of HRH comments’ come from the old. Thanks for worrying everbrite but not too many of the younger generation glued to the tv, well not to watch the coverage.

Grin

All they seemed (the Media) to find is kids laying flowers and ex D of Edin Awards people with one young bloke saying how it changed him for the better. Regarding mainly old people commenting not to sure about that, as once again particularly the Media seem to capture the not so old doing the homage! Lot of support will come from the Armed Services incl ex services personnel. Don't think you can generalize as there is too much evidence of a broad swell of support. Just my opinion; said the Bishop to the Actress!

11  The Hotel End / Cobblers Corner / Re: Jon Brady on: April 13, 2021, 20:06:11 pm
JB says Saturday was another point gained - no, it was 2 points lost. If that is how he views a home draw with another bottom 6 team he does not fill me with confidence.

Bit harsh WSOAP - it at least kept us out of the bottom at until Friday. If there is any criticism he keeps Playing Edmondson without Marshall for a bit of quality?  Also the subs could come on sooner. I suspect that the draw whilst not ideal was a better for us than Rovers?
12  The Hotel End / Cobblers Corner / Re: HRH The Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh R.I.P. on: April 13, 2021, 18:18:35 pm
I promise I'm not being funny but I honestly don't know what you're on about.

How very personal  Shocked
13  The Hotel End / Cobblers Corner / Re: HRH The Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh R.I.P. on: April 13, 2021, 18:10:35 pm
You don't half come out with some strange comments Evers. How do you determine that Winslow doesn't have a partner and what's it got to do with anything anyway???

Not half as many you Doc Strangelove! The vast outpouring of HRH comments come from the Ladies; Sunday Express! If he had partner glued to the TV he may understand. And you?
14  The Hotel End / Cobblers Corner / Re: HRH The Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh R.I.P. on: April 13, 2021, 17:20:36 pm
Does anyone know where you can find the form to complain that there wasn’t enough coverage?

Shame on you to provoke some on here; I have written to the BBC your behalf. Never mind Winslow clearly you don’t have a  lady partner? Not many in Winslow I hear Cool
15  The Hotel End / Cobblers Corner / Re: HRH The Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh R.I.P. on: April 13, 2021, 15:55:39 pm
Completely agree I don’t see the point of putting the same programming at the same time on both tv channels. There is a big enough proportion of people against or indifferent to the royal family (with that only growing as years pass) that people should have been given a choice.

Source please to back up yr statements

BBC’s Prince Philip coverage breaks UK TV complaints record
Jim Waterson Media editor
Mon, 12 April 2021, 5:39 pm
The BBC’s wall-to-wall coverage of Prince Philip’s death has become the most complained-about moment in British television history, as viewers expressed their annoyance that shows such as EastEnders and MasterChef were replaced with royal tributes.

At least 110,994 people have contacted the BBC to express their displeasure at the decision to turn most of the corporation’s TV channels and radio stations over to rolling tributes to the Queen’s husband.

BBC One and BBC Two dedicated Friday evening’s programming to Philip, and their ratings fell as viewers switched off altogether, turned to streaming services or watched shows such as Gogglebox on Channel 4.

According to an internal BBC complaints log seen by the Guardian, an unprecedented level of viewer feedback was received over the weekend, meaning the coverage appears to have elicited one of the most negative reactions to BBC programmes ever seen.

One example comment from a member of the public included in the log said: “Coverage of this event took up the entire evening broadcast to the exclusion of all other topics, including the ongoing topic of the pandemic. Some coverage was justified, but not to this extent.”

Another said: “It was sad news Prince Phillip [sic] died on Friday and I understand the BBC had to acknowledge the fact but on every single one of its channels? Why [not] just put it on one channel for those that want to listen to that drivel and the rest of us can have a bit of music.”

Within hours of Philip’s death the number of complaints about the coverage had become so large that the BBC set up a dedicated form in an attempt to streamline the process. This form was then taken down on Sunday, making it harder for people to register their displeasure.

The previous record for BBC complaints is believed to be the 63,000 objections to the 2005 decision to broadcast Jerry Springer: The Opera, following criticism from Christian groups.

The BBC declined to comment on the leaked weekend figures and said a formal announcement would be made as planned on Thursday.



Appreciate your initiative to use that bastion of left minded news ‘The Guardian’. What you fail to mention is that the viewing figures dwarf the complaints particularly the Week End figures. Regrettably the media will be subtlety deaf if viewing figures are good. Bit like Astra Seneca Vacine!

And what about all of those 'lesser' sides we have failed miserably against? If we reach the end of the season still failing to pick up any points away from Sixfields, would you still consider him the right man for the job?

Well Jolly what do you think of Chucks, Jonesy and Marshall’s little cameo’s last Saturday?
18  The Hotel End / Cobblers Corner / Re: HRH The Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh R.I.P. on: April 13, 2021, 10:04:40 am
He scored a few own goals didn't he? Oh hang-on a football link, quick moderates, take it down.

Hello SOG what brings you on to this HRH thread so early today?
19  The Hotel End / Cobblers Corner / Re: HRH The Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh R.I.P. on: April 12, 2021, 23:45:48 pm
Quite bizarre really. The footballing community has spent the last year on one knee cowtowing to the BLM movement, and yet here they are at the weekend paying homage to a world reknowned, proper old-school racist. It's a strange old world. Wink

Its funny how some people see the Duke; all I know or see is that a fair proportion of the population seem to miss him. Are they all racists too?  Perhaps the pro Republicans or disgruntled Corbinisto's/Euro bods are merely unhappy that they have no Grandpa worth mentioning. At least he made a fair few smile or laugh. Jolly please supply a quote (with source) made by your Old School Racist? There must be some risky ones!

McWilliams,LJones ,Horsfall but I appreciated Chucks & Jonesy cameos. But for me its the man who scored the goal  Mr Marmite Hoskins
