I don't like the playing of Daydream Believer over the PA before games. We know what the crowd is expected to sing when the DJ turns the volume down for the chorus. Its negative stuff. It gives a bad example to youngsters who will copy their ignorant elders in spouting the inevitable expletives. That and the relentless anti English chants makes us the most hateful club in the division. We make Stokies look like the nice guys. Why can't we just support our team in a positive way rather than sing all this negative, hateful stuff?
Just turned 60, done my bowel cancer screening test. The letter says there's a poor take-up amongst men. I bet there's a few on here have put the kit to one side and forgotten about it. Great free service. Do it - it could save your life.
Seems we are getting some payback for the investment in development. Roberts especially impressive for me. The other two have surprised me how well they have played, they would get found out in the Premier League, but some writing on here had them as League One or Two players. .
Channel 4. On now. Watch it on catchup. Artist. Non football man embedded at West Brom last season. Terrific insight into the modern game. Thoughtful. Excellent program it seems very relevant considering what happened to us last season. His interviews as an outsider are revealing.
Especially if it's on an east facing wall, with this cold east wind. The drain pipe for the condensate from he boiler drips constantly. It's on the outside wall where the boiler is. This weather can freeze it up and cause the the boiler to stop working. Worth a check.
The whole of the terraces was wet, right at the back of the stand too. So with the cold weather the wet floor made it feel colder and more miserable than it need have done, and made my feet cold. To put it in Corporate speak: it diminished my match-day experience I sit back in row S, there was no way that it could have been rain blown in by the wind and it seemed to extend right to the back of the Stand. Anyone else notice this? I wonder what caused it, did they wash down the terraces or something? It never dried out all game.
The Oystons took money (about £25 million) out of the club without consulting fellow director and 20% share holder Belokon. They were found to have acted with unfair prejudice. They have been ordered to pay him £31.27m.
Does this have any bearing on the strength of the Trusts case against and the new owners, I wonder?
If so, it will hopefully mean that the new owners stick to their offer to buy out a proportion of the Trusts shares.
A couple of points from the article
Conn writes: " Unfair-prejudice claims are difficult to win", which is worth noting.
"Also Crucially, Smith found of the Oystons’ conduct as directors: “It is clear that there were fundamental breaches of duties owed to Blackpool FC.” Reciting the law, he said these duties were: to exercise their powers “for a proper purpose”; “to promote the success of the company for the benefit of its members as a whole”; to “exercise reasonable care, skill and diligence”; and to avoid conflicts of interest.

Dear Planet Of The Swans Im wracking my brains as to how we score more goals, trouble is Carlo used to do all the stuff with the forwards and I'm a bit stumped. I asked Claude, but its not really his thing either. Any ideas on a large blackboard with circles and chalk arrows please. Very Best Regards Paul Clement
