Re: Newcastle involved in payments to transfer fixers in 2011

Wasn’t this the HMRC thing that ended with no charges?

Re: wilson out 6 wks

Plenty of pre-season action for Gayle....zero PL minutes in 4 games this season. Typical Bruce. Leeds, Watford and Wolves next - if we don't give him game time in those three (you wouldn't rule out him getting a goal) then what on earth was the point in him getting a new 3 year deal...other than fo...

They definitely need something at that chicane to stop people cutting it and gaining, but those probably aren't really the answer.
Gravel traps, those mini rubber pillars, foam boards, an Armco barrier, stewards being strict on track limits... all would do a better job imo.

I've thought this for ages but that all happened because of those stupid speed-bump kerbs. They act like a ramp. So dangerous.

Re: Man U v Newcastle

Bruce supposedly had a full on meltdown in his interview after the game. Caused by Lee Ryder <laugh> Yeah he described a question about him going on holiday as “typical of you and of your newspaper”! <laugh> I missed the game today but that and “Geordies boys, on a bender/Cristiano, sex offender” g...

Re: The Message of Hate Thread

Recruiters are the way forward - but not the big companies, find 1, 2, 3-person shops that are actually personally invested in you and experts in their industry. They'll be able to navigate the market better and know who's hiring before they hire...

Re: The F1 Thread

Triple post shame BB... but fantastic that it seems George Russell will get to drive a Merc next season. Could be a genuine 3-way (or more...) title fight with Hamilton, Russell, Verstappen, plus perhaps the new regs bringing some of the other teams into play. Exciting!

Re: Holidays

My wedding was expensive in comparison to some of yours (about £6k) but about a quarter of the price of some weddings I've been to. I knew someone who spent £30k on their wedding and got divorced within a year. They're still paying for a wedding to someone they're not even married to anymore <doh>....
