Much moaning about the strike rates of possible incomings. How many more times, the chances of landing a proven league striker with an impressive strike rate is practically zero. Itís what every club is after and some are prepared to pay massively over the odds to get it. Itís either a g@mble or a youngster on loan and thatís it. Otherwise you might as well talk about signing Messi.

Lead by example and donít ask people to do something youíre not prepared to do yourself. Neither complicated or difficult. However, a politician who doesnít adhere to those guidelines is walking a tightrope.

Good MorningÖ

Whatís your wife done to deserve that? Give her a break, find a nice away trip, go for an overnight match, throw in a shopping centre and a nice pub lunch, then she wonít hold the football bit against you so much!

Youíre the best husband ever!

Itís what managerís do. No different to theirs "For their equaliser, Nicky definitely got caught but sometimes you get those decisions and sometimes you don't and we didn't get that one and the lad finished it very well.ď
Got caught by the breeze of McWilliams?
Either he canít have seen it, or he is on hard drugs.

If you get the chance for added humour listen to the away commentary. They think our goal is contentious due to their players head injury. I reckon they must have had some sort of head injury as well. Sixseats was the head trauma capital of the world yesterday.
6  The Hotel End / Cobblers Corner / Re: FGR 15th Jan. on: January 16, 2022, 09:47:59 am
So much happened in the game I'd almost forgotten about the FGR left back wearing "budgie smuggler" shorts, surely that must be illegal in this day and age with young children present !  Grin
Rog that wasnít our simulation mate was it? Itís all become clear, they finally cut off his circulation and he fainted. Other theories are that he got hit by a coin, a wasp flew up his nose and he picked his nose after scratching his leg that had Ralgex on it.

I was just watching the video clip of the goal the club have posted on Facebook and ended up watching that part over and over. It actually makes it all the sweeter because the cheating little **** had been doing that all game, so to have our equaliser come directly as a result of his antics is brilliant!!!!
Harsh, I take it you do not align yourself with the concept of a medical episode?

That is the issue, sky blue and chocolate is incorrect.  Wink
I still want maroon.

All been said already but what was that defender doing throwing himself on the floor holding his face as though McWilliams had elbowed him just prior to the goal. Absolute cheat and comic genius in equal measure. Had he stayed on his feet and pressured Shaun we might not have scored. So 2 medals please for that defender for both presenting us with the equaliser and the worst simulation attempt in soccer history. Well done.
Just been discussing this with Mrs M, showed her the footage and she is upset. She feels the player was not cheating, but rather may have suffered some unrelated medical episode. I have no evidence that he hasnít, so in light of this I would like to withdraw my comments and offer an unreserved apology to the player and all at FGR.

Heís out, no crystal ball required. Except now heís out for 3 years minimum, destroyed his legacy in the eyes of many, and a few million out of pocket. Great with a racket, not so hot with the old grey matter. Brains of a rocking horse apparently, anyone for tennis weíre a man light?

All been said already but in addition what was that defender doing throwing himself on the floor holding his face as though McWilliams had elbowed him just prior to the goal. Absolute cheat and comic genius in equal measure. Had he stayed on his feet and pressured Shaun we might not have scored. So 2 medals please for that defender for both presenting us with the equaliser and the worst simulation attempt in soccer history. Well done.

Good luck with the Covid mate. My view is that this Covid thing came from nowhere and was thrust upon every government at a moments notice turning every process, procedure and plan on its head. Trying to sort that lot out and protect everyone at a momentís notice would have been a nightmare. As a result there would be different strategies and the like employed to tackle it and there was always going to be plenty of mistakes. I happen to think most governments have done ok given the circumstances. Certainly not without their faults, but ok.
14  The Hotel End / Other Football & Sport / Re: Djokovic and his exemption. on: January 14, 2022, 11:12:01 am
I don't think anyone comes out of this well. Djokovic is an AV, and doesn't give a sh1t about anyone other than himself. Very poor behaviour from him and also very disrespectful towards the Australian people, expecting preferential clearance. Plus at 34, its surely gone beyond the point where Mummy and Daddy and co do a press conference and start singing. Good Lord, what a family!

It also does highlight Australia's draconian approach to all things covid. I have real issues with the Ashes tournament and not because we are getting a thumping. We shouldn't have played there, end of. No chance of being able to prepare for it properly, Barmy Army unable to travel etc. Literally everything was set up to disadvantage us, so for me this series is bloody irrelevant.

They also wouldn't stage a grand prix, pulled out of the rugby league world cup etc.

A lot of people over the years have moved to there or New Zealand because its perceived that they are great countries, and everything in the UK is rubbish. Well as far as I'm concerned they can stick their draconian and Nazi style politics up their arses. They don't give a dam about human rights, peoples mental health etc. They've (looking outside in) treated their citizens with utter contempt throughout and yet (in NZ case especially) their governments seem to have been commended for their approach. Fcuk em.

Sorry Melbourn C...please accept my apology for this little rant! Be interested to read your response, as you are over there!  Grin
Elements of truth Shane. There are truly wonderful aspects to living in this country and I donít regret coming here for a moment. That being said as with everything in life there are a few downsides. I certainly wouldnít call the UK rubbish and donít know of many expats who would. Itís been interesting to see life from the other side as an immigrant. Personally I donít think it helps to think as one better than the other, theyíre just different. I just like the experience of living and working in other countries, thatís my take anyway.

Staring down the barrel of a 3 year ban, and they will almost undoubtably enforce it. At 34 this probably signals the end of his Australian Open career. Pity he doesn't read this thread, I warned him. However, irrespective of the disruption to the tournament and the other players expect Djokovic to appeal. What this whole saga has identified is that in in the world of  Novak Djokovic, only Novak matters. Given his conduct immediately prior to the tournament realistically he shouldn't have a chance. However the Australian Courts are almost identical in their competence to the UK courts, so say no more.
16  The Hotel End / Cobblers Corner / Re: Ex-Cobblers players with the most unrealised talent on: January 11, 2022, 21:39:43 pm
Not sure he had unrealised talent. He played well over 200 games for Villa and was (I think) voted their player of the 90s
Fair enough but as far as England goes apparently Dennis Wise got picked in front of him as did David Batty and Carlton Palmer. They were taking the pi55.
17  The Hotel End / Other Football & Sport / Re: Djokovic and his exemption. on: January 11, 2022, 09:21:09 am
Itís turning into a real soap opera now. Apparently Djokovic tested positive and then went trotting around Serbia mask less at various events and was photographed doing so. Trouble is apparently it is the law in Serbia to isolate for 14 days after a positive result. Then upon entry into Australia he submitted the traveller declaration card and in the section that asked if he had travelled anywhere over the last 14 days and he answered no. There is a picture of what appears to be the offending document that has been leaked to the media. The newspapers have pictures of him in a training camp just after new Year in Spain. So he has broken the law in Australia as well by giving false statements on the entry form. Also itís being reported that he travelled to Spain when technically he should have been isolating in Serbia, potentially putting Spanish civilians at risk. If true itís possible he has also broken Spanish law. If this is all confirmed it will be interesting to see how it goes. He is looking at a 3 year exclusion from Australia, itís been suggested that the Serbian leader will be asked to issue an unreserved apology to Australia and thereís talk that the Australian government will demand action against him by the governing bodies of Tennis. If true given heís 34 this may be a career defining moment for him. Thatís the rumours anyway.

Hands down Ian Taylor. Twice turned down the opportunity to play for Barbados as he wanted to play for England but never did, absolute travesty. Always the complete professional, started life as a forklift truck driver which probably explains the difference between him and some of these petulant players who are handed careers on a plate.
19  The Hotel End / Cobblers Corner / Re: Your most disappointing Cobblers signing on: January 10, 2022, 23:33:36 pm
As mentioned, Andy Kirk. I think the difference with him was he did put the effort in and thatís what made it all the more disappointing when it didnít work out.
20  The Hotel End / Other Football & Sport / Re: Djokovic and his exemption. on: January 10, 2022, 23:27:02 pm
Absolute shambles. The view here is that the ATP should have made the decision regarding vaccination status in the first place. They bottled it and then the Victorian government bottled it as well. Then the border force, clearly under pressure didnít follow fair process. Now the government is in the position of either cancelling the visa or severely damaging their chances of re-election. Despite a few tennis fans and people of Serbian decent no one wants him here and people are furious. The non stop talk is why people have been stuck overseas and in other states for months on end not allowed to return home and all the other stuff that goes with it, and a tennis player walks in. Additionally the AFL have ruled that all players must be vaccinated with a no jab no play policy. That will also now be open to challenge if he is allowed to stay along with a huge accompanying list. The opposition government are staying ominously quiet. They clearly want the government to let him in as it will be a heaven sent election opportunity.
