He's lost it

The constant online confrontations really aren't worth being a NE journalist. They must make what, $35k at the most? Id rather be a sparky.

The problem isn't the confrontations, it's that he's wrong. If he was right, he would be telling us about it 4 times a day never mind 4 times a week. If you're a sparky, you would be expected to know your stuff about electrics. 35k still 35k too much if you are a football journalist publishing horseshit.

We've fitted an electric oven with 1mm twin core, and because the house hasn''t burned down it was obviously the right decision. "What the f*** have people been doing, wasting 2.5mm all these years?"

He'll keep his head down and ignore all the tweets until we manage to scrape a draw or fluke a win and then it'll all come rising back to the top. He's an imbecile.

The Evening Bruceicle are exhausting their contacts book again. Comments from John Lickylips urging fans to be careful what they wish for re: a takeover.

Personally think they need to ask the Sayers family - or Barnesy - just to get some fresh perspective.
Had a few dances off her when I've been in Blue velvet with friends. She's one of the ones who will push her fanny in your face, usually I like that but hers smells f***ing rotten. Only had dances off her because she agreed to take less money for the dances when me and my mate said we were skint.

There’s very little news in football, and a lot of papers and social media to fill/sell.

They should really be part time and just do match reports.

Where did it all go wrong for Deportivo La Coruña?

Twenty years after winning La Liga, the club are battling to avoid relegation to the third tier. How did it come to this?

I’ve followed them this season, at least they’re not rock bottom anymore as they were for a long time. They’ve had a real upturn in form since New Year and are currently 17th. But yeah, awful season.

No f***ing mention that staving off relegation is now seen as a successful season, year in year out.
The excitement and satisfaction coming from Bruce and the media that we've nearly hit 40 points is f***ing disgusting.

"John Carver has talked of playing two up top in an effort to score goals, tactically be more direct to grind out points, and just about every other possibility known to man or beast. They are the ramblings of a drowning desperado."

Slightly to the side of this topic, there's a couple of times I've seen a journo's wage guessed at (the guess is usually about 35k pa) and then the post goes onto look down on that amount as if it's beneath them. I didn't realise we were all spaceman cowboy millionaires on here these days.

Sorry if the folk who do it didn't mean for it to sound that way and I've just picked it up wrong, but it's felt that way to me.

Well, that was the inflection given to it by to the under butler who read it to out to me anyway.

Trump will do well man. Don't know why but I really feel this will be the case. Really hope it will come to be that way.

Sounds like a very minor misunderstanding. Even though I despise Bruce, I’m sure he wasnt trying to imply that.
