  1. Just thought I’d add the two most recent posts on Todd’s website Instagram story. Lakey, hopefully I include enough of one of your posts for you to feel I’m not selectively quoting you here:

    Social media has in it the best and the worst about life - it is a reflection of people of all sorts. The problem is it is instantly accessible to both good and bad and often it seems the bad becomes the prevalent too easily - you only have to look on you tube comments to see the amount of abuse and ugliness there in responses to all sorts of things. I would say to any younger person - get your priorities right, get your heads out of your phones and look outwards, not inwards. Social media presents largely false imagery and polarised arguments and attitudes - and footballers (as this is what this forum is about) should focus more on their profession than their image. Imo of course! 🙂

    This forum is actually getting pathetic now

    TBF, this sort of thing has always happened, although this thread is a particularly awful example of the pantomime “I’m right”, “No, I’m right” argument.

     

    And having said that, I’m going to join in. 😉

    Cantwell is clearly one of those marmite players who generates strong opinions, and for those of us on the positive end of the spectrum it looks a lot like the negative views have been influenced by the social media, topless photos, long hair, gloves and Alice band stuff, even if his detractors claim it’s all about the football. “Constructive” criticism for him when other young players get a free pass just encourages that view.

     

    Right, I’ve said my bit, I’m going to try and stay away from this thread now to avoid further windups.

    Read that post back to yourself and tell me you're not just as bad as he is.

    It's obviously really important to you both to fight for the position of second-least-popular person on the forum, though, so I'll let you both get on with it.

    Is no-one else gagging to know who is the (official, or is it ***official***?) least-popular person on the forum?

     

    Or are you saying that the loser of Til and Bill is least popular, leaving the other one as second-least-popular?

    I'm boring myself now...zzz 😴

    For the reasons I said. 

    I understand that they are eligible for FA Cup games. 

    They have got a much better chance of getting a move if they are training and involved. 

    I can't believe people would prefer us to be paying them to be in Germany playing keep-ups with a packet of crisps. 

    Source? Not Gary Lineker?

    None of which explains why they have been completely ostracised - Hughton did this with Becchio, again without explanation, and supporters surely have a right to know why these players are suddenly out of favour - not just "not being selected" but deemed to be such a negative influence on the squad that they are not even allowed to be in contact? Not being good enough isn't a reason for being treated this way - especially someone like Trybull, who certainly was good enough.

    On what planet do we have a right to know? I could understand an argument that shareholders might have some right to be told about internal management of the club, although it's not a very strong one IMHO. But supporters have very few "rights" to anything.

    Correct but as others have said, the simple Scouse response is always...........................'It's their / Thatcher / Tory Government / London / Westminster / Mancs / the English / Johnson  (delete as appropriate) fault'. Their police look the other way as they tend to do (remember when the Man City team bus got attacked?) and just make excuses for the mob.    

    All ignored by the mainstream media who have swallowed the 'always the victim' line for years. 

    Attitudes like yours don’t help either. Try changing Scouse in your post to Irish, Jewish or Indian. There are d1ckheads everywhere.

    Various sources, including The Guardian, reporting this morning that Arsenal are preparing an official bid for Emi. They've got Kolasinac and Saliba off the wage bill, and are also hoping to move Ozil, Sokratis, Nketiah and Mustafi this month. This one just isn't going to go away until Arsenal sign a new attacking midfielder.

    Maybe offer them Stiepi instead?

    https://www.msn.com/en-gb/money/other/gavin-williamson-accused-of-chumocracy-over-laptop-deal-for-tory-donor/ar-BB1cC3ja?ocid=msedgdhp

    "Embattled Education Secretary Gavin Williamson has been accused of running a “chumocracy” after laptop contracts went to a Tory donor’s firm.

    The job of supplying home-learning pupils has fallen to Computacenter.

    The Hertfordshire-based firm was founded by Sir Philip Hulme, who gave £100,000 to the Tories.

    It follows a £96million deal the firm got last year without competitive tender."

    TB entirely F, which I do try, Computacenter must be one of the 3 biggest business laptop suppliers in the UK. It obviously should have been a competitive tender, but it’s not on the scale of giving a ferry contract to a firm with no ferries, or some of the PPE suppliers outrages.

    Lambert saved city. When he came he, the club was in freefall. He took city from league 1 to 12th in the premiership. So stop being a bunch of tw*ts about him and fecking grow up. 

    ... oh go on then ...

     

     

     

    Binner.

    I think we should develop Barden carefully. We’ve had so many young keepers in the past who we got excited about but how many actually lived up to the hype? Jed Steer has probably done the best but he is only second choice at Villa now (is he injured?). Then there’s Angus Gunn, Declan Rudd, Remi Matthews and Joe Lewis who all eventually settled at Championship level at best, but were raved about before they actually played at first team level.

     

    A promising start for sure, but let’s not put too much pressure too early on him. 

    I just posted this on the match thread but seems more appropriate here.

    The Snoddy/RVW penalty debate reminds me of the 'timelines' episode of Community and the different potential realities people cling to.

    • Reality one- the one we live in
    • Reality two- Snoddy scores the penalty, we stay up
    • Reality three- RVW scores it, continues to be crap
    • Reality four- RVW scores it, becomes a 20 a season striker, we stay up and he eventually moves to Madrid, solves world hunger and stops Trump becoming President
    • Reality five- RVW takes it, misses it, still is rubbish
    • Reality six- RVW takes it, misses it, collapses into a black hole of shame and doubt, moves to Kings Lynn two years later before deciding football isn't actually for him and starts a small glamping business near Thetford Forest.

     

    I was going to post something less funny but similar about how reality five or at best three were likely if Snoddy hadn’t taken the ball from RVW.
