very possible..  also I expect police have a lot of other things that they could devote their resources to rather than something of that nature...  

I just think he knew he was likely to be in some bother, either with his wife, his employer, or both, and he's tried to make out like he'd been set up in some way.  I think what actually happened was that some fellas in their 30's/40's spotted some young models and figured there might be the opportunity for a good time.  Meanwhile, some lasses in their early 20's spotted a famous wealthy bloke and figured that there might be the opportunity for a good time in a different way or at least a free night out.  Both groups using each other essentially.

Their is a fascinating article about the Boro in today’s Athletic... Nine championship games in 29 days.  Following a team in their maddest run ever.    Neil Warnock was on the pit

Centuries ago Villages had ducking stools whereby if the person drowned they were innocent and if they lived they were guilty and sentenced to death. Nowadays not much has changed sadly. Idiots postin

Thanks for all your thoughts and prayers. I probably shouldn’t have made things public, but I was at as very low ebb. It’s been a difficult year, not made better by COVID. Lockdown bucket lists aren’t

On a positive of sorts at least he seems to have learned to pull out of the tackle instead of following through.

Two ends to a night that end up with something all over the bedsheets. 😬

If you need some football excitement .. during this summer break ..  Fc Midtjylland v Celtic is about to start ekstra time after the second leg also ended 1-1 ... 

It could go to pennalties ..  This stream is fairly good .. Warning: Scottisch  language

BYE BYE CELTIC! 

GET IN!

Very pleasing scoreline.

Though it's spoiled somewhat by the fact they're still on Europa League qualifying.

It's harder to get knocked out of European football than to stay in right now.

Well done Midtjylland, and good luck in the competition, but honestly, Celtic are in a real mess right now. I cannot see how their new manager is the right fit for a club needing root-and-branch rebuilding, and I feel Rangers under Gerrard are going to go from strength to strength this season.

Funny (yet also quite sad) how Scottish football goes through these lengthy cycles of one-club dominance while the other flounders and falls apart. I think it'll be a good few years before Celtic win the SPL again.

Looks like the Oirish are having a good night in Europe..  should be a few quid in the bank for Bohemians and Larne...  though Steuea appear to have not fared so well

So that means everybody got through... hopefully some good opponents in next round rather than trips to Kazakhstan 🙂 

Yes I think they are all still going although it is an even further watered down version of European football

I suppose it is, though I still think anything that gives the minnows a chance of a bit of the cash has to be good, especially in the current situation...  the lads from Skibbereen did well too

    • What! that time already? Talk about wishing your life away!🤪
    • For me, we need to appoint a manager with some sort of track record that has a style and philosophy that fits the brief set by Gibson and given to Scott. A newbie would be a huge risk as there is no evidence to back up management style, newbies could be anything. Yes, they can work out, successful managers have to start somewhere, but more fail than make it. A newbie with pulling power like Bryan Robson would attract players on reputation, but without tactical nous and man management skills it can unravel quickly.  Scott will likely be the big influencer for Gibson. His vision needs to fit into recruitment strategy, but also retention,  taking account of the squad we currently have. As said above, while the jigsaw analogy is a fair one, getting the balance right is no easy task. Too experienced a coach and they can be set in their ways, tried and trusted styles that have been successful only work if the players at the club can adapt quickly. I would like to see someone who is early in their management career, with a decent grounding as a manager at a lower level, improved the team or teams he has been at, has drive and ambition to get to the top, but not someone who sees Boro as a mere stepping stone, someone who wants to hang around and be a part of any future success. Someone who has good man management skills and a vision that mirrors that of the clubs forward strategy. As for names, I really don’t have any, I will leave that to Scott and Gibson and place my trust that they get things right between them at the first time of asking.   
    • Or as someone who allegedly loved his particularly young fresh Oats so much he was actually named after them once said "I am just going outside and may be some time." 
    • Maybe what's happened is the Ameobi Experiment.  We signed him and then tried to make him invisible to opposition players.  Something went wrong with the experiment however, and whilst to anyone looking on we did indeed make him disappear, he is not actually invisible, but has in fact travelled through time to the year 1984.  Or, he has a dicky knee.  Could be either 🤷‍♂️
    • He is being prepared as our new manager next season? 😄
