    Song For Ed.

    ......... oh, and I suppose an obvious song for Ed and Labour (Old, New or whatever) supporters, at least for another five years, is ''Cheerio, cheerio, cheerio .....''

    Song For Ed.

    I agree with the comment above. Ed Balls displayed an impressively calm and courteous magnanimity in defeat but that''s unsurprising because in my opinion he always conducts himself in a gentlemanly manner. This is of course in contrast with the ''anti-Tory'' brigade on here whose posts today reveal, to me anyway, a predictably arrogant, disagreeable, and bigoted reaction to the Conservatives winning an unexpected overall majority. I said the other day that you would have to be nutty to vote for Labour and it is clear that Labour supporters on this message board are purple with bitter frustration and the ''injustice of it all''.

    What we have witnessed in England and Wales is a significant majority of the population displaying common sense and voting for the continuation and consolidation of stability. It has nothing to do with deep rooted right wing leanings or, indeed, unprogressive, dogma based left wing thinking but instead has everything to do with good sense, intelligence and pragmatism.

    Could RVW play in the play offs?

    IMO Celtic would be a good option for RVW.
  4. [quote user="westcoastcanary"]Even Tettey''s knee is well able to manage one game a week. Fulham represent a big challenge even though pride and exorcising a demon are the only things hanging on it. Finishing the season on a high and going into the play offs full of confidence though would be a huge plus. What sort of preparation would it be to duck out?[/quote]

    He was a big miss last Saturday. Was that due to his knee ? If there has been any discussion/announcement on his absence against Rotherham I didn''t see it.

    I''m probably missing something WHF but given that the thread was started on Saturday evening, and by the way shook a few of us out of our depression and re-ignited a little hope, where does the "less than 12 hours" come from ?[/quote]Blimey, if reading this thread gave you new hope and shook you out of depression then I think you need to go and sit in the "daft ar$e" corner with the OP.[;)][/quote]

    I was thoroughly dejected after we blew the very realistic opportunity of gaining automatic promotion with just minutes to go last Saturday afternoon but, yes, the realisation/reminder that there was still a chance, albeit very slim, of still achieving automatic promotion served to cheer me up just a little bit. Like I said earlier Morty, without hope there is only despair and the descent into becoming a morose, miserable, insult hurling old git. By the way, interested to see you have extended your abuse portfolio from just "cock" and "tw@tt" to include "daft ar$e". Impressive. I''m tempted to encourage you further to enhance your boorishness repertoire with a few choice gibes of my own but then I would be sinking to your moronic plateau and I''m not prepared to do that.

    Fair enough WHF.

    side vs fulham

    [quote user="Mr Jenkins"]Would certainly like to see VOO given a full 90 to make his claim for a place.[/quote]

    Agree with this, it would be worth going to the match just to see what this much vaunted player can do. I don''t think we should risk injury to any of our key players so I also think that this is the opportunity for Becchio to start.

    Last day of season scenario

    Not sure what''s wrong with clinging to hope. Without hope there is only despair and I would rather clutch straws, whilst at the same time not denying that I will still probably drown, than become a miserable, negative so and so. There was just a chance, albeit very slim indeed, that Bournemouth would not win last night, that both Middlesborough and Bournemouth would drop points on Saturday and we would win. Now that scenario has evaporated, I am allowing myself to hope that we can win the play-offs and still get promoted ..... or, is that scenario one that should be mocked and treated with contempt ?
  10. [quote user="Herman "][quote user="Hairy Canary"]I always find that people with right wing views feel that the BBC are left wing and people of the left, like me, feel that it leans to the right.
    Funny how Nigel Farage accused the BBC of installing a left wing audience for his leaders debate only to discover they were hand picked by an independent organisation.
    Based on your fair minded and tolerant assessment of the much admired Andrew Marr I reccon I could guess what your persuasion is Quentin......
    [/quote]If they upset both sides of the political fence then the Beeb must be doing something right[;)][/quote]

    But they don''t upset me Herman. As I said in my post, I support no political party at all, in fact I have a low opinion of all politicians, but my opinion as a neutral is that the BBC is most definitely left of centre.

    I''m pretty neutral when it comes to politics, but I am of the opinion that not only has the BBC become Salford/Northern Centric to an embarrassing degree (with Mrs ''ecky thoomp'' Bridges wheeled on to do the business news on Breakfast TV) but also obviously left wing and very definitely anti "Tory" and anti (perceived) "posh". Again, in the interests of balance, I think that the daily news should be read by someone with a broad norfolk accent and the weather forecast presented by a scouser.
  12. [quote user=" Badger"][quote user="Bor Bor Bor"]I''m sure it will be all sorted out with Cameron prominent at the FA Cup Final, drinking Fosters Lager and swirling his jacket around his head if Villa wins.  That should restore his "man of the people" rating in the eyes of some Tory spin monkey.
    [/quote]I doubt that he will bother. The Cup final is after the election and as he has already said he won''t stand for a third term he can do whatever he wants if he wins this time. More likely to see him foxhunting than footballing![/quote]

    You didn''t see Andrew Marr''s apology to Cameron yesterday then ?! The words literally stuck in his throat and he checked on them
  13. [quote user="quentin fulcher"][quote user="Herman "]See what I mean..[/quote]

    Yeah, but...  [:D][/quote]

    Thanks Quentin, that''s what I like: a sense of balance. They''re both a couple of knobbs, from highly priviliged backgrounds, completely out of touch with the reality of daily life for the vast majority of the population.
  14. [quote user="Yellow Wall"]The ''punch'' that Grabban threw would not hurt a child.

    Some of the over the top, stud showing, leg breaking tackles that also get players sent off could, potentially, end a fellow professional''s career.

    Yet they both pick up three match bans.

    Ludicrous.[/quote]

    He threw a punch, it made contact. Red card. It really is as simple as that. Credit (begrudgingly) to the Rotherham player for not falling to the ground like the proverbial sack of potatoes or clutching his stomach as if he had been punched by Manny Pacquiao.
  15. [quote user="pete"]Bournemouth will beat Bolton who have second worst away record according to Sky.

    Boro will beat Brighton who cannot score.

    City 4th to play 5th who looks to be Derby who have conceded 7 goals to poor teams in last two games. But will beat a poor Reading. Ipswich need to beat Blackburn which seems unlikely to finish 5th.[/quote]

    If Ipswich lose away at Blackburn and Brentford beat Wigan then they will be on the same points so it would then come down to goal difference as to who qualifies for the play-offs. Ipswich GD currently 3 better than Brentford''s so likely to be a tight run thing.
