Of course @Dokko is absolutely right, it's hard times for all we'd better share it around

?s=19

God forbid anyone stands up for themselves or stands for anything anymore.

Some nice whataboutery there as it’s got f*** all to do with Covid. Can’t use it for SA buying NUFC but can use it for anything else.

If Newark went in to t3 and was given £20m you’d have a point, but it’s nothing to do with this, is it? Apples and pears. I totally back that it’s a pisstake but that isn’t now and that isn’t Covid.

I get what you say about the Newark money not being a covid contingency. How Newark got any money still stinks.

There’s a 1000 shitty sticks you can point at this lot both during and outside of Covid, and rightly so. This country voted them in, voted brexit so they have no one to answer to and Happily bought in to the Boris bullshit bingo and this is the bed we’re all having to lie in. I’m not defending them, far from it. But if you go in trying to negotiate with the proven bullshitter and scatterbrain, then expect all the underhand tactics and games and know when you’ve reach the point where you’ll get nothing further. It’s like dealing with a child mid tantrum. Get it calm, so your head isn’t battered then make them understand later what wasn’t acceptable. Boris is just a big child, but unfortunately he’s in charge and this country put him there.

Anyway This is the last I say on it as my opinion isn’t welcome here. Just because I don’t back what the SCOUSE has done in this situation doesn’t mean I back the government or Boris in anything else. I just think the ‘King of the North’ bought in to his hype too much and is currently left empty handed, and while that makes no difference to his life, it makes a huge difference to 2.8m people he defends.

Froggy, what's your affinity with Newcastle? I can't remember why you decided to join the board? Was it just to talk about Man United?

Not a dig by the way, I'm genuinely interested given we don't get many "rival" fans on the board.
He's a mate or ManDoon iirc.

Decky.

Are you willing to enter into a debate on here about him though, as I have a question.

You constantly say that he isn't the man to progress the club or the players, but some might say that he's actually taken the club and majority of players backwards. Do you disagree with that?

The reason you get called up on it is that there aren't exactly many Bruce supporters on here to have the conversation with, and it's interesting to know what some people are seeing in him that the majority can't?

It shows a basic lack of understanding about football. Not even up for debate.

I find this an interesting comment because if you want to accuse someone of that, I would have to argue that it's possible that you yourself are guilty of this.
You maintained last season that 'Bruce was doing ok'. I think many people would say that what happened last season was in spite of Bruce and not because of him. That's gleaned from many years of watching football (and personal experience with Pardew)
Some people might say that that shows a basic lack of understanding of football from you. Others would say it's your opinion.
If you don't agree with someone's opinion, give them a counter argument, don't belittle them.
Absolutely brilliantly put.  I only wish that I could of published those words so eloquently because I so much struggle with what Samp is on about.  He deserves every bit of criticism that comes  his way after the pathetic defence of Bruce last season.

Saying Bruce did okay last season is not a pathetic defence of Bruce. Think it's likely he will be sacked this season and he clearly isn't the man to progress the club or the players.

I don't hate Bruce. Some do. Fine. People can think what they want.

But the consistent "hey @samptime29 is Bruce doing okay?" in several threads is a bit sad and weird.

TRV's would be best bet for zonal heating in your house.

As mentioned above you can get smart TRV's (tado?) And could simplify it again.
