Ace...looking forward to seeing plenty more Turkey flags when Millwall visit later this season and not being irked by it!

Not saying you can't be irked by it - what I am saying is that you shouldn't be surprised to see it

Apologies I'm gettting "complaining and all affronted by it" mixed up with "surprised about it"

My mistake.

The Danny Baker side of this isn't even an issue to me - I'm not a fan or a non-fan.  I've started to read his book that's about it

My point is more general,  this outrage when anyone dare have a pop/dig/wind up at anyone

It'll always go on so long as someone can get a rise out of someone else

I'll think you'll find there's many a ManU fan (probably Liverpool too) going around saying "what goes around,  comes around"

What are you actually suggesting RHS?...that because some Leeds (or Liverpool) fans have a history of pathetic chants about Munich or any other disaster,that there's almost a justification for others to respond back about supporters being stabbed or crushed to death??

That's how you're coming across mate.

Two rights don't make a wrong! (or the other way round in this case).

I find him irritating and comes across as quite smug.
If he's as clever as some are making out then it's more than likely he knew exactly what he was doing with the tweet.

Hawes in the Yorkshire Dales for a couple of days.
Back in the digs after a 6 mile hike enjoying a couple of sherbets.

Heading over to Bainbridge tomorrow after breakfast to do the Semer water hike.

Weather set fair, scenery as stunning as ever.

Lucky bugger!

Could get used to this "forced" retirement mullarkey!

Get your drift RHS.
Used to do an Annual golf jaunt to the Algarve every March with the lads from the golf club but it became more about the beer than the golf and the nights got later every year.
We eventually knocked it on the head as there seemed little point in paying as much as 75 euros for a round on a top championship course abroad only to spend most of it throwing up and hacking your way around with a hangover from hell.

Golf and beer do NOT mix.

Where's Mol?

Mol's ace.
Says it how it is.
Missed.

Biggest spenders in the summer Forest weren't they?
Would imagine the least expected is the play offs.

Strange that OBL69 never made a return,more so given that he does the promotion bit with
Oddjob.
As I recall he had a to do with Gore but as he's not about these days,thought it might have prompted a RTA.
Has that Sheffield Utd fan gone altogether then?

And where,s Scootay these days, seen him lurking a bit.

Yep, I had it three rounds each up to the knockout.
Clinical finish from AJ.

Cheers for the link too.

Great save at the death by their keeper from Dallas.

Indeed.
In contrast BPF should have done far better for both their goals.
Hard to be too critical as he's saved our bacon on more than one occasion.
Fine margins sometimes.

Had to lose sometime I suppose, just surprised it came against them.
No more than they deserved by all accounts.
Need a few bodies back fit.

On the plus side still top with Boro only drawing.

Be interesting to hear Bielsa's thoughts.

Can't abide Ian Duncan-Smith but for once he seems to have nailed it, there's more than a whiff of the EU playing the schoolyard bully now that we're nearly at crunch time.
Macron showing his true colours now also,the cunt.

Still feel that everyone loses in all of this,not just the UK.

Surely all this has to be in context with the role being applied for though?
In this instance I feel it's overkill and it seems to me that experience/knowhow these days comes fairly low down the list in terms of applicant selection.
I've interviewed people who didn't come across as particularly intellectual but had all the experience and job specific attributes to be a success at the job.
Equally, and in one particular case I interviewed someone who blew me away but didn't know his arse from his elbow when actually delivering.

I'm assuming these tests are to assist in such cases but given that most jobs these days have a probationary period anyway, just struggling to get my head round it.
