  1. Is Viney’s foot worse than we think?

    I'm going to go out on a limb and guess that he's 'right on track'.
  2. When she was 5, my niece 'wrote a book' about going to the football with me. The only thing I say in the book is "Oh no, oh no, oh no" over and over again on every page, which is pretty much what you'd get if I was calling the game.
  3. The Ox and Marko sacked by SEN

    Ripper headline out of the UK earlier this week about possible trade retaliation against US tariffs: "We'll put a levy on your Chevy and tax your whiskey and rye."
  4. Unfortunately we ran out of time - we had at least another half dozen questions up our sleeves, and there were a number of other areas he touched on in his answers that merited follow-up questions. The interview was only meant to last 15 minutes, but Jetts was good enough to give us about 25, which is very generous for someone who was trying to put his young kids to bed at the same time!
  5. I wouldn’t put too much store in what Goyder says ldc; he was also publicly critical of pokies when he was head of Wesfarmers, but never did anything about it. Then, as now, he was paying lip service to the issue, and most people, aside from Davey Dee, can see through the spin and window-dressing. The notion that some clubs have agreed - in principle - to get rid of their pokies is laughable, a bit like the time I decided - in principle - to give all my money to charity.
  6. The adventures of President Donald Gump

    Trump a genius? Bwahahahha!! The Wall Street Journal - hardly a lefty newspaper - described his tweets on trade yesterday as ‘one of the greatest displays of economic nonsense in presidential history.’
  7. Millenials - Bah Humbug

    Very funny dc, but nothing beats the real thing. This is a genuine ad for the Department of Finance.
  8. JLT Squad for the North game

    Max Gawn told a Demon Army function tonight that Fritsch will play this weekend.
  9. The Barnaby

    “I want to stand with the current definition of marriage. I think it has been trialled by time, by thousands of years across multiple cultures, across multiple faiths." “I see marriage as a reflection of what I have, what my parents had, what my grandparents had." “When we go there (Asia), there are judgments whether you like it or not that are made about us. There they see in how we negotiate with them whether they see us as decadent." https://www.theguardian.com/australia-news/2015/jul/05/barnaby-joyce-says-asia-may-see-our-embrace-of-same-sex-marriage-as-decadent
  10. Retro gear

    The quarter-by-quarter scores from all 12 premierships, pictures of the 10 greatest MFC marks and goals, and the names of every player who played more than 100 games for the club, along with their signatures. Usual logo stuff.

    I liked the oldskool Zooper Doopers from the 80’s, which were half the size and went under the name of Kool Pops. I was the Kool Pop king. This ad explains everything.
  12. The Soccer thread

    W0o0-h0o0 !! Great comeback away from home after another sleepy, sloppy start. Spurs will need to be on guard against Juve doing the classic Italian 1-0 smash-and-grab job in the return fixture, but as you say, the away goals puts them in the box seat. With the league titles wrapped up in all the 5 major Euro leagues except Italy and maybe Spain, the remaining CL matches this round and beyond are all the more enticing, and I'll definitely be tuning into to RM v PSG tomorrow morning. Also interesting to read today that there's been a slump in broadcast revenue in EPL rights in the UK, following years of massive increases. Didn't realise that British broadcasters are only allowed to show 200 of the 380 games live, a restriction apparently aimed at maintaining high attendances at the grounds.
  13. The Soccer thread

    Spurs should have had a bagful, Macca, they botched plenty of gimmes, but Arsenal never looked threatening. In fact, they looked disinterested most of the time. Champions League returns this week, with plenty of good fixtures as highlighted in one of your earlier posts. I’m quietly confident about Spurs’ trip to Turin.
  14. Jimmy? No-one called him that. Pretty sure it was Jimbo, or if not that, Cooky.
