Another Drive4show 'Anything goes' thread

Post by navyblueshorts on Wed Sep 28, 2016 10:25 am

First topic message reminder :

Actually Davie, they didn't fit yours (apologies; 'idiocy' is a bit strong). Your earlier comments were all about how he'd actually done something terrible/illegal i.e. told them how to get around 3rd party ownership (he didn't) with the possible implication that he'd been knowingly involved in it (no evidence of this), took £400k for dodgy seminars (he didn't and he said he'd have to clear it with the FA) etc. You wanted him to be a crook from the off.
You also claimed Ben and I said he was 'innocent' - we said no such thing.

You never took S_R's approach re. his position being untenable because he was England manager, the one thing he probably falls foul of. His comments re. Hodgson/Nevile were unfortunate, but this was a private conversation and, actually, big deal. Seriously, the next poor schmuck who takes this on should treat the media as they deserve.

There may well be more to this - we'll see. Until then, the only thing he's 'guilty' of is putting himself in a stupid position cf. the FA's comments re. FIFA etc and forcing the FA to ask him to fall on his sword. S_R's right with this; the FA had little choice really.

Pedro - I've always noticed you take a big interest in American politics / current affairs. Just curious - what's your connection to the US?

Fake News?

Prem Goal of the Month award goes to Mkhitaryan - even though it was clearly offside.
As Sports Illustrated might say: Isn't that a "Sign of the Apocalypse"?

You'd think that might have disqualified it, but I guess as it was given as a 'goal', it counts. Great bit of skill even so.

Ironic story from Leicester City:

http://www.lcfc.com/news/article/birch-presents-life-saving-defibrillators-2418622.aspx

Alan Birchenall reportedly needed to be revived by use of defibrillator after collapsing while making a presentation last night. Imagine he'll miss the Chelsea / Leicester game then, graced Stamford Bridge as well as Filbert Street. Super, elegant player, hope he makes a full recovery.

Kind of fateful. Nice that he was resuscitated OK. Went on some CPR/defib training last year - the paramedic running it pointed out that if you don't get either CPR or defib within 10 mins, you're a stiff. He said he lost count of the times he arrived at a patient after 10 mins to see all these spectators standing around and no-one had administered (or even tried to administer) CPR. Game over.
