An interesting article and not just to berate Premier League football but also to open up the wider debate of the moral responsibility of company owners, highly paid executives, etc that are in a much better financial position to help out, especially in the early stages of this situation. It's so wrong that a company that could afford, at least initially, to absorb early losses could actually choose to furlough staff or even lay them off whilst protecting exec pay and/or dividend payments. The government hopefully have a way of identifying these companies and refusing furloughs to them. Maybe I'm being too hopeful and asking too much of the haves but to see the economic massacre that so many are going to suffer globally while so many have more money than they know what to do with leaves a fcuking bad taste in my mouth. I've read that some celebrities have made donations like Messi, Guardiola etc but there's a real chance for these types (all the rich not just celebs) to help out in a very big way the millions of the have nots that are gonna have a alot less after this situation. #stickthatinyourtwitterfeedorinstagramupdate
First time in a long time that it's looking so open with several teams legitimate World Champions in the waiting. Felt like the close season was never gonna end but after some really interesting big name surprise moves it all tips off tomorrow.
There's no pwopa football for almost another week, things are quiet on here and veering towards the political and Clive needs the traffic so everybody that looks at this has to give their best caption competition offering. The highest number of upvotes wins;
Yesterday, completely out of the blue, our eldest son, 12, was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes. He was taken to hospital and will be there until at least Monday while they run tests etc to understand the levels and reactions to this disorder so that we can all become educated and understand how and when to monitor and react accordingly to certain situations. My reason for posting is basically to ask if any other parent on here has a young son or daughter with Type 1 diabetes and if so just how serious or otherwise, it affects their general day to day life and future plans. As previously mentioned, it has come as a complete surprise and as I, fortunately, have no previous experience or knowledge of this disorder it's all a bit surreal at the moment and I'm genuinely not sure just how grave or life-changing this is going to be. We will obviously be getting a lot of medical advice over the coming days and weeks, however, any advice, opinions or suggestions on how to help my son and to be prepared for what lies ahead in general based on personal experiences would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
Unfortunately my Mother-In-Law passed away late last year and we decided to take in her dog who is a gorgeous, loving though rather scatty cross breed. Fortunately he gets on well with the family dog and all is great except for one messy detail.
You guessed it, he pisses and shíts in the house. Can be anywhere upstairs or downstairs. He was never properly house trained with the MIL because she had no garden (he used to go in an open air non used garage) so in his mind it's acceptable to do his business on "hard" floors.
So does anybody have any suggestions on how to retrain the little shít to do his business in the garden. We leave him outside sometimes for hours on end and then he comes indoors and will run straight upstairs and crap in one of the bedrooms, almost as if to wind me up on purpose!
I've tried the shoving his nose in it and scolding him and leaving him outside for hours but it's just not working and I'm certainly not going to hit him as some have suggested.
So any suggestions or ideas on this messy situation would be greatly appreciated...
