“The pace of the Megane is too leisurely to be called quick. Uphill runs become power sappingly mundane whilst overtaking National Express coaches becomes a long, drawn-out affair. Not my words, Carol, those are the words of Top Gear Magazine.”

Do you not think 10 quid is too much for a lg2 game with one camera and a hit and miss service ?

Great idea for them, as with the amount of money sloshing around in the Prem, their club doesn't need it.

Mind you, if we had a proper tax regime, there wouldn't need to be food banks. Over to you Boris.


Through the door there came familiar laughter,
I saw your face and heard you call my name.
Oh my friend we're older but no wiser,
For in our hearts the dreams are still the same.

Not at all. I think it is incredible we can watch our beloved stripes on TV every game. Make my plans to retire abroad in the warmth more palatable as missing Town games was the big negative (and my mum I suppose lol).

Please explain yourself when you say proper tax regime?
Do you mean higher taxes for those that work hard and earn more?

I work hard an earn more. And yes I do mean higher taxes for the better off, including me.

Millions of people work as hard or harder than me in worse conditions but don’t earn much. Many don’t get paid enough to live decently on. I don’t see any great moral virtue about earning more money. Do you think those hard working poor people deserve less?

And don’t get me started on unearned wealth.

Are you proud of your country? One of the richest economies but one where we have good banks? Cos I’m flipping not. It’s a flipping disgrace.

If you’re ok with that you’re either a fool or have no compassion.

The fact we have food banks is a disgrace, the fact there are queues and plenty of people actually working having to use them is an even bigger disgrace.

I actually think £10 for iFollow is quite expensive given the inconsistent quality but I guess, as football has done for a number of years, it doesn’t matter, they know people will pay for it.

I don’t see it as a way of handing cash to my club (I mean our club has had its fair share of free cash this summer anyway), I see it as an opportunity to watch my club. I’m still waiting for reassurances from the current incumbents about the long term economic future of the club, after all, that was one of the big justifications in not selling to someone else.

I think Newcastle fans deserve some credit and aside from the Chelsea game, my understanding is that the pay per view games were not of highest quality. I’d love to see viewing figures. With all due respect to Newcastle, they aren’t a massive club but get a few fans but I can’t imagine more than 75000 people paying for it...


'the poor and the needy are selfish and greedy'...well done Mozza
