The standard of BBC reporting.

This on their website at the moment - 'Newcastle have lost last four matches in a row'

'Newcastle have lost [their] last four matches' is sufficient, you tautological ****wits.

It's probably bladder irritation. Went through tests for similar stuff a few years back, eye watering stuff. Certain fluids and even foods will set it off and it's that that makes you want a pee. Caffeine, fizzy drinks and tomato based foods are some of the worst offenders. Was told not to drink after eight but then my bladder is like a shrivelled sponge after years of not drinking enough water as a youngster.

Similar to when they do stories about panic buying in supermarkets. Usually supported by a couple of social media posts and some pics they have taken outside Costco of shoppers with full trolleys. Itís Costco, people are stocking up for their small businesses!

Donít they realise that by running bullshitty stories about panic buying, they are just encouraging more people to go...panic buying?? Eejits

Mmmm. Not sure.

I think it is fair for fans to know what the top earning players are on. Especially if one of them is having partytime in Dubai when the rest of us are in lockdown.

Is it fair for TV license payers to know how much Linekar gets?

To be fair Peter, my point wasn't intended so much to be about whether people have the right to know*, but more about the fact that people will write a whole feckin' thesis / base an entire argument around Player A being paid X amount compared to Player B who's paid Y amount, when actually they really haven't got a clue what they earn, they just assume they know / what they've heard is correct, and we all know what ASS U ME does... ;)

*Nevertheless, at a wider level I do also think that people who aren't public servants should have the right to keep their salary private if that's what they want. Footballers aren't public servants, even though they are constantly in the public eye. I personally don't feel I have the right to know what, for example, Sakho The Soldier's salary is (I was going to say Sakho earns, but that would be ridiculous! ;) ). If he goes overseas when he shouldn't, because it's not the right thing to do at this time, is really nothing to do with his salary. Someone who earns 1k a week can do the same wrong thing as someone who earns 100k a week - they're still both arseholes doing the wrong thing.

Lineker works for what's essentially a public service, so it's not really a good comparison.

Martin H 29-01-2021 06:58 PM

An odd thing to be annoyed at maybe but I was listening to a podcast programme earlier and it referenced a pod called Ďwhat the British have stolení or something like that. It seems to be a pod that picks something every week from history that our (for those that are British) ancestors did and basically slags them off for its long lasting effects.

I am not nationalistic by any stretch and frankly donít understand peopleís obsession with what someone did or didnít do in the past outside of a history lesson. I certainly donít understand how I (as a brit) should feel in any way accountable for what our ancestors did - good or bad. Especially when they are being judged for 18th century actions vs 21st century values. So I am annoyed at that, not in some sort of defensive response about Britainís history. Also not sure where it stops. Doe we blame the Romans, more the vikings or maybe Ug the stone age man? S*** happens and we have to avoid replicating their mistakes, not spend our life beating our chests about them surely.

Pretty sure I must be in the minority but I just canít relate to this different aspect of a nationalistic mentality.

I agree. I am not patriotic, let alone nationalistic, and therefore do not take pride in the achievements of people who just happened to live on the same geographical landmass as me.

Equally, I don't feel shame about the bad things, and it does irk me when I'm told that I (e.g. as part of "the Guardian we") should.

Specific numbers are not important, but benchmark figures tell us if our chairman has lost his mind.

Especially for a Club that has been in Admin twice.

I see that it has been reported that Lampard only got a 2 million failure pay off.

Fans want to understand how 1 billion of TV money gets spent when the club cant compete with similar clubs spending 20 million plus on a player.

We have no right to know, but it does make explanations easier. And ensures tht the likes of SP dont shift the blame for disappearing AWB money or the lack of Selhurst development on to things that are not his own financial mismanagement. The overall cost of Benteke, Sakho, Wickham and Meyer builds that main stand.

I think itís a standard coverall answer.

Couple of years ago I was having real issues with Ďgaggingí (yeah yeah) all the time. Went to the docs, told me to cut down on spicy food, alcohol and coffee (at the time I was drinking 6 or 7 cups a day). I decided to cut out coffee altogether and continue/increase my spice and alcohol intake.

It did the trick but whether it was anything to do with the coffee is anyoneís guess.

Down the years I got fed up telling doctors the truth about how much booze I sip and watching the look of condemnation on their faces. Although I got great satisfaction out of waving my results at them a week later. Instead of being happy that my blood work was good they would say, you're just a freak of nature or that it will all catch up with you very soon.
So one time I went for my annual mot and there was a new doctor who I knew just by the look of him had never took a drop of the craitor in his life. I figured he'd have a breakdown if I told him the truth so when it came to that question I told him I drink 4 bottles of beer a week.
He told me that was too much. After a heated debate, in which I divulged the weakness of the beer and the ounces in the bottle, he gave in slightly and said maybe I should cut down. Totally convinced that most doctors haven't got a feckin clue.

I told my company Doctor that I occasionally had a bottle of wine at weekends and was immediately put down as a 'Binge' drinker! This is despite sometimes going weeks without drinking any alcohol. I can only assume this is measured in the same book as the weight charts where if I stopped being obese I would practically be see through and blow away in the wind. It sometimes seems advantageous for doctors to class everyone with some sort of excess?

Been there done that.

If I was in the green section of the BMI chart I would look like Peter Crouch with anorexia.

Last time I told my doctor I drink maybe 6 to 8 glasses of wine a week... and got the standard "cut that in half" response. I said I never drink beer or hard liqueur anymore, he said they were all the same, 6 units of wine is as bad as 6 bottles of beer or 6 gin and tonics. Personally I dispute that. I'll admit that the 6 to 8 glasses of wine a week is usually consumed in one evening, so like you would be labeled a "binge" drinker by the doc.

Same here. I'm in no way patriotic but it irritates me that I should feel guilty for what my ancestors may have done even if it was wrong or shameful. Similarly, I don't feel personal pride in the achievements of my ancestors no matter how great they were - indeed it is partly why I am not patriotic. The only pride and shame I'll ever feel about what happened in history is what I personally did or didn't do.

Any of these singers who have a go at popular chart hits but still think they are projecting to an audience on the other side of a hall. Alfie Boe's rendition of 'Bridge over troubled waters' on TV a while back still gives me nightmares. I didn't know there was a new musical style of 'shouting' a song?

Boe And Ball and Boe And Ball Again are Christmas classics.

Oh, just listen to anyone described as a diva.

Another bugbear of mine is orchestras playing pop songs. I once had to sit in a car coming back from Folkestone listening to the London Philharmonic Plays The Beatles (or some such nonsense). I was almost suicidal by Ashford.

You should try playing in an orchestra when this type of thing is on the stand. Cringe worthy.
Even worse when you can tell some of your fellow musicians have never heard the original /
/shudder.

The only time this works with a brass band is when Brighouse played Skyfall on the Chris Evans show a few years back.
Spine tingling.

I beg to differ

One big difference with the Ibiza Prom was they had singers.

I'm sure chateaufudgepacket is currently scanning wikipedia and google to come up with some load of orchestral bullshit.

Most of us will remember those Classical Rock Šlbums...Bohemian Rhapsody, Whiter Shade of Pale etc..

Sharkba1t 03-02-2021 07:04 PM

These modern "DJ's". Some of them actually think they are musicians, yet all they do is twiddle with nobs on some sound machine. Any cnt can do that.
Try playing a proper musical instrument you twats.
Showing my age i know....i guess they wouldn't be successful if these drug crazed twits who follow them didn't think they were the bollox...

Very true. Although you do get the odd genius or two... DJs like Andy C, EZ, James Zabeila are absolutely incredible!

As a DJ myself I would agree.

Of course controls have to be adjusted but should be reserved for key moments. Yes there is an irritating element of attention-seeking 'look at me' types who use the equipment as a penis extension. Truth is a fair number aren't actually doing anything at all except very briefly and constantly touching the dials to make it look all complex and technical.

Loads of vids on You Tube exposing the fakes, pretending to twiddle knobs that actually do nothing.

Chris Evans on the radio, what a preachy twat.
Problem is you can set any bbc radio station to your Alexa alarm.

I know you're not referring to radio DJs...

"The way it was in the past
A long, long time ago
Before staff levels dropped
They used to listen to the radio
And listen to the DJs talk
About the songs they didn't know
As if it really mattered

And 20 years ago
No-one seemed to care
The people must have known
The DJ's role was only there
To fill in space between the songs
That talk of love and other things
As if they didn't matter

Automatic stations came
And sent them all away
And now I'm left alone
I haven't got a word to say
And you're the one who makes the choice
To turn me on or turn me off
But now it really matters."

(c) Philip Oakey, Martyn Ware, Ian Craig Marsh 1980

I was thinking about these gig things the other day and although i wouldnt mind going to one, i think id actually rather go back to a packed sweaty club with a sticky floor playing these tunes with other like minded 30-40 somethings with a smirnoff ice in my hand.
