  1. Inflatables on the pitch on 60min. Beach balls, rings, lie lows, paddling pools, alligators, dinghy's, light aircraft. Pitch needs to look like it's been carpet bombed by Toys'r'us …….. may not achieve anything but would be quite amusing and get lots of TV replay. Small items easy to smuggle in, may need a ninja squad to throw larger items over the wall from outside. Diversion tactics required to keep security occupied. Shhhhh, keep it to yourselves, and what ever you do don't put on social media, I tried once and made a total arse of myself. Most important don't tell my wife, she's shit
  2. 'The fantasists hit reality when they won the referendum and the government was unwilling to tell the public that the option they voted for to have our cake and eat it was never on the table”.Hilary Benn on Sophy Ridge.This sums up the whole debacle, we were conned by people who never thought they would win but were scoring party political, and or internal points.Straight taking now needed.Not convoluted strategies, triangulation and political point scoring.
  3. We require at least one Non Exec Board member with the necessary contacts in China and Japan. There are people in these countries who seek prestige rather than profit. To be owner of an English football club still appeals to many, it's all about having the contacts.
  4. Artificial Intelligence may be considered an appropriate epithet by many on here
  5. In my first 24 years supporting Latics we had 2 Managers, neither set the football world on fire at the outset as both were novices in management. Second 24 years have seen us go through 20+ (can't be arsed counting). Were we simply lucky back then and unlucky now, or are we ignoring that stability breeds success but doesn't come imnediately. Personally I believe the modern game set-up and players themselves are more often the problem than the manager. Everyone's now too scared to play risky foitball as it reduces their accuracy percentage come the Monday morning
  6. Entertain a clown and you become part of the circus. Next please. Roll up, roll up,, try your luck.
  7. Both parties are fundamentally split,. She could probably come up with an offer which would get a decent amount of Labour support while maintaining the support of the centre of her party and be acceptible to the EU. I doubt there's anything she could offer the ERG and DUP that she could agree with the EU. Ultimately if she wants to get a deal through it's going to need substantial support from Labour which means it's going to need mirror the Labour position far more than it currently does i.e lose the pretense of not quite a customs union.Ultimately this is a failure of the British political s
  8. ........ and will Brexit address this - The UK government has inflicted “great misery” on its people with “punitive, mean-spirited, and often callous” austerity policies driven by a political desire to undertake social re-engineering rather than economic necessity, the United Nations poverty envoy has found.Philip Alston, the UN’s rapporteur on extreme poverty and human rights, ended a two-week fact-finding mission to the UK with a stinging declaration that despite being the world’s fifth largest economy, levels of child poverty are “not just a disgrace, but a social calamity and a
  9. Apologies for not being Oldham related but was sad to hear that Kevin Beattie died this week aged 64 - He had been working as a radio pundit on Saturday for Radio Suffolk and died in the early hours of Sunday morning.For those of a certain vintage he really was a superb player for the best Ipswich team ever produced which was managed by Bobby Robson who had guys like Mick Mills, Wark,Muhren,Thijssen,Mariner,Brazil and Gates and the Ipswich Fans regard him as their Greatest Ever Player. I enjoyed watching him play and although he was mainly a CB he could play anywhere - Bobby Robson said he
  10. I see Jack Byrne is now at Kilmarnock, anyone got any opinions about his time at BP. .. ... please don't, only jesting.
  11. If we're at the point where posts are being grammatically reviewed after an away victory, it may be worth considering an alternative pastime. Some people are far too happy to be blue.
  12. Aye, knowing our luck we'll score 255 and still go out on penalties.
