  1. [My Emphasis] Does this mean the Trust has previously / continually approved the publishing of abridge accounts? And if so, the question is surely why!?
  2. Change, especially to culture, comes from the top. If she can set the right tone, correct the processes and behaviours which alienate people, etc. then I am sure she can put the Trust on a solid footing. No more secrecy, no more Owners before Club, Friendships before Fans, etc. and we're on a better road.
  3. Christ, I don't think I've ever seen someone more over-qualified or over-achieving. Can we just replace Mo with her now and have done with it? We'd be up by Christmas!
  4. An absolute shitload of BBC 6music thanks to lockdown. Who are playing the hell out of the new Fontaines D.C. single... it's banging...
  5. If she goes now and we waste our Days in Mourning on being locked in the house I will revive her myself, just to kill her again!
  6. Album: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Good_Luck,_Kid Opening Single is astonishing:
  7. That's an interesting coincidence isn't it...
  8. I will lock the tread if needed. Take the Politics and other shite to the Taproom and leave people to call each other cunts about football no politics, please.
  9. I can add your guesses to the official thread, if suitably approved by the masses and at the cost of a small fee (payable in beer at Orient).
  10. @rosa you want me to this bad boy up or are you giving Will an unreasonable amount of grace period?
  11. It makes me laugh every single time I put it on. Childish or not! And yeah, Ghosteen will be one people talk about in 50 years, it's astonishing. I never actually got to that. I saw them support Doves with The Coral at The Royal Albert Hall and they were good. Very twee! I've popped it on now, so thanks for that!
  12. Quick run through of a few of late... Nick Cave - Ghosteen Karen O and Dangermouse - Lux Prima Peaness - Are You Sure? EP Fuzzy Sun - Warm Evening / Cold Morning EP and also Want Love EP @Frankly Mr Shankly if you've not tried Peaness yet I think you may like them.
  13. Brassic is absolutely brilliant - We binged through that in a single day! Sidekick Simon is Tim Key, one of the most astonishingly funny men, his stand-up is brilliant. He's an amazing actor. He's a poet. He's one of the creatives behind TaskMaster (he's BFFs with Alex Horne) The Orville (on Fox here) is brilliant, for anyone who likes proper Star Trek from back in the day, when it was a 'Monster of the week' serial. It's made by Family Guy/American Dad creator Seth McFarlen, but don't let that attract you / put you off, as whilst there's an occasional dick joke it's a lot more subtle and funny than that. It's basically like an adult-friendly version of Trek and honestly just amazing. I watched 9 hours of it yesterday alone (no, I don't have kids!).
  14. You may be surprised by it. Whilst it still has the super hero elements its far more thoughtful and satirical than a Marvel movie. I don't really watch the latter, but loved it all the same.
  15. Hi All, If the rumours on Twitter are proved true I welcome condemnation of that person to the ends of the earth, and back. However, until that time they're at best rumour and at worst the potentially libellous damning of a young person with their life ahead of them - something no one should take lightly. Twitter has abhorrently low standards for what it considers to be acceptable. We're better than that here, and thus threads on the subject will continue to be moderated. I am sure any reasonable person can understand why. Cheers, Ack
  16. And with that, we're done. This is why you can't have nice things.
  17. Did you seriously just use the word snowflake unironically? Christ, what a thread.
  18. How's it odd...? It's marketing for Paddy Power yes. Which they probably paid Huddersfield a boatload of money for!
  19. Afternoon Everyone, The Mod team have been talking over the last few days and have decided to post a little update on funds, following the exceptionally generous donation (both in financial terms, but also the time, effort and talent) by @mrwalks12 from the Wild Boys thread. We're always on the look out for funding, and we don't want to take for granted our current position, but thanks to some tweaks with our ad-platform (now @Matt is back), we're capitalising a little better on the site's ad revenue. We've also had countless other (equally generous) donations in this thread over the last few months, which all means for the moment we're currently keeping our heads above water. As a result, whilst we're incredibly grateful for the offer, we have decided to donate 50% of the £350 to the Roy Castle Lung Cancer Association - in honour of @opinions4u. O4U made a huge impression on all of the Mods, and we feel it's the absolute least we could do. Thank you to everyone for your generosity - your support really does make a difference for OWTB and we'd not be online today without your ongoing support! OWTB, The Mods.
  20. Not directly, no. Though features like that can cost extra the Reputation one was in-built for now. We are just going through a cycle of changes based on feedback and that was one. As was the snazzy new logo (thanks @Matt!!)
