    Manager/Coach Karl Robinson - Will he walk

    I do agree with you that you have to dream but, first and foremost, it has to be sustainable. I like the model. I think it works, so we'll just have to agree to differ! :)

    Aye, that's the way I see it.

    Potential New Ground

    I think the £13 million is totally unrealistic. Weren't people bandying that figure about 15 years ago? I also think it would take more than £7 million to get it up to standard.

    Manager/Coach Karl Robinson - Will he walk

    The 'family silver' - Jesus. Fosu was pretty good and Baptiste an injury-prone youngster. I'd argue our squad has improved since the window with the addition of Kelly, Browne and Holland. It certainly hasn't got any worse. And of course the ownership are going to say what they think the fans...

    Potential New Ground

    This is the thing. Would buying it and getting it up to scratch be any cheaper than building new? I don't know the answer - just wondering.

    Manager/Coach Karl Robinson - Will he walk

    This is all speculative BS. Managers come and go, and they all say what they think needs to be said to further their own positions. It's easy to say, "The board aren't showing enough ambition for me" because the manager doesn't have to put his money where his mouth is and he knows the fans will...

    That all seems pretty sensible.

    General Heading banned for U12s

    There are a number of points to consider here. Firstly, while the increase in the risk of developing dementia looks very large (about 365%), the actual risk is pretty low to begin with (about 0.65% if I recall correctly). So, there is no need for any kind of panicked reaction. More...

    More and more studies are showing that implicit bias training actually makes discrimination more likely.

    National News Brexit 31/1/20

    That's a brilliant post. FWIW, several bands I follow have already said they're postponing European tours that were scheduled for next year because they don't know what the situation will be. I also have a number of friends in various industries who have already suffered. One whose company went...

    National News Labour Leadership battle

    The extent to which the LibDems dropped the ball is nearly as impressive as Labour's c*ck-up.

    National News Brexit 31/1/20

    The number of unemployed and the number of people economically inactive are different things. That said, Patel was still talking B*****s. Those 8.5m are mainly students, the disabled, the retired, etc. They're not in a position to work anyway.

    General VAR consistency?

    I guess you'd have to bring in an amendment that says that the official's decision is final, unless VAR is in operation, in which case... blah, blah.

    General VAR consistency?

    Also a good point.

    General VAR consistency?

    I don't think many people are complaining that VAR is getting offside decisions wrong. They are complaining about the law and the rigidity of the VAR rulings. There has to be some margin for error, similar to the umpire's call in cricket. If a decision is too close to be seen live by the...

    Chairman January transfer window DIDNT lack ambition

    I have to say that I admire your perseverance on here, Scotchegg. There are certain contributors who are absolutely determined to be negative about everything the club does (no matter who owns it) and will always refuse to believe anything those in charge say. I don't think I could bring myself...
