Re: Boycott

Hindsight is a wonderful win, but if the boycott had been planned for a couple of months into the season when the Bruce disaster was in full swing then more people would have stayed away. Doing it on the first game of the season was never going to be that successful. The problem is, we shouldn't be...

Re: Man City

Didn't Chelsea do it 29 times and try to hide it? Where as City just played kids on trial in non-competitive matches, and co-operated?

Re: Boycott

I can forgive errors. What I'll never accept is the lack of ambition. Whether or not you think Rafa was the right manager for us, this quote epitomizes Ashley's reign I think if he could achieve his ambition to make money along with the ambition of footballing success he probably would (because it ...

Re: Boycott

I think there's a massive bit of balance that's missing. There's a lot of fans that think we should have massive net spend which we're never going to have while Ashley tries to recoup the investment he made without due diligence. It's his mistake but he's not going to write that off out of the good...

Re: Boycott

Legally, sure. Don't know why any fans would defend him crippling the club though. I think it's more a case of debating than defending as there seems to be a mantra not wholly correct when it comes to our owner and the way he runs our club. Oh there are definitely Ashley Apologists out there who ar...

Re: Boycott

Which may well have been the stalling point in past takeovers. All the bids seem to go quiet once they've done due diligence and had the chance to see these contracts. Of course they are then under an NDA. He's well within his rights to do so i might add as much as it pisses some off. Legally, sure...

Re: Boycott

It doesn't take a genius to look at Rangers and see what Ashley is probably doing to us. I'm convinced he's benefiting off of us through SD beyond cheap advertising. Our kit deals and store sales will all benefit his other companies . I'll buy a 10 year season ticket if I'm wrong. I wouldn't be sur...

Re: NFL

We got enough interest for a fantasy league this year? Fell on its arse last year so I just joined a random league <neg> I've got one with some mates, but I always like having a couple <laugh> Reckon if you're up for it, we'd only need 4 more to have a semi decent league. Surely we can get that?

My sister was diagnosed with MS earlier this year and she and her husband have opted to go vegan as it appears it has health benefits (not actually proven as most people don't stay on the dietary change for long enough). I've been looking into vegan dishes for a few months now and trying to create ...
