I always thought he was underated here and can see why heís moved into management. He always seemed to read the game well and was generally on a different and better wavelength than some of our more unintelligent players

I assume you put him for naps in his cot when you have him at home, just say to your parents that you're trying to get him into a routine of only sleeping in a cot, or you're sleep training him and ideally he needs to nap in a cot. As great and as helpful as Grandparents can be, they need to follow your lead.

If we are at home he goes in the cot or sometimes he will just fall asleep on the wife and she will leave him there.

If we are out and about, then itís highly likely he will fall asleep on route be it in the car or on foot.

The difference is, we *know* we *can* get him down in the cot if we need to. Where as my parents wonít deviate from Ďwalk him to sleepí therefore canít get him down in a cot if they ever needed to...

Gutted about Weatherall. He really was a huge cultural game changer in this country without many people realising. Met him a few times. He was always humble, funny and really fucking interesting. RIP

Aside from the obvious Pox and City rivalries, Iíve really had fun with Bradford this year, itís added something extra. And add the fact that, for once, weíve won (maybe not on the pitch, but away from from it we most certainly have) its been even more fun. For what itís worth I donít think either the club or their fans have acted unfairly and Iíve now got half an eye on them and hope their season comes good without Doyle

It reminds me of the PdC L2 season. Of course a lot hated and admired us at the same time. But distinct "rivalries" at the time seemed to be Gills (because of previous and we poached Luke Rooney purely for shits and giggles) and Shrews (due to us poaching Collins mostly but Graham Turner thought they were much better than they were.) Both sets of those home victories, I'm certain on a Tuesday night, were great nights under lights. Only really second to Northampton and PdC's famous "run".

Those times seem like they are nearly here again, so as well as the usual rivalries, these temporary ones stand out for me too.

Bit long winded this so apologies in advance for those who take (waste?) the time to read it.

So, my parent have Dalton (just shy of 18 months) every Wednesday and have been since the Wifeís year of maternity finished in August. On the occasion he hasnít been able to go to nursery for whatever reason, they have had him. When the Wife And I have conflicting plans, they have him. If we just want a day to ourselves they will have him.

Weíve relied on them a fair bit and theyíve always been there, canít fault them.


However, they only have him during the day and never over night (in theory fine) as no one else has had him over night either.

My parents however, rely on taking him out for a walk in order to get him to nap, which most of the time is absolutely fine...but...for example they very kindly had him yesterday so the wife and I could have a day to ourselves to celebrate Valentineís Day, due to the weather they couldnít take him out for a walk till 3pm. So he napped at 3pm which is waaay too late, made bed time really difficult and his sleep over night bloody poor.

Now heís a bit older and less reliant on my wife. I can cuddle / rock him off to sleep, nursery can do it on a Monday & Tuesday when he is there. My Mother-in-Law can do it. If she comes round ours in the evening she can / will either help put him to bed or put him to bed.

For purely selfish reasons it would be nice, eventually if we could leave him with my parents or mother in law over night, thatís what we are hoping to work towards.

How can I politely, respectfully but firmly tell my parents they need to start trying to put him down in his travel cot for his naps. They tried once and literally just put him in it - which surprisingly didnít make him go to sleep.

Naturally I donít want to look a gift horse in the mouth or piss my parents off but feel itís something they should be trying to do...wife is nagging me about it too


Advice from anyone who managed to read it all?


I assume you put him for naps in his cot when you have him at home, just say to your parents that you're trying to get him into a routine of only sleeping in a cot, or you're sleep training him and ideally he needs to nap in a cot.

Ok one last time on this subject:-

What part of "I do not support racism of any kind" not answer your repeated question about Cummings/Boris?
Good, so you think they're in the wrong and regret voting them into power. Great.

Why did you not pick up on my mention of anti semetism?
Because you didn't make any mention of anti-semitism. But for the record, I've repeatedly condemned Corbyn's failure to tackle it decisively and been attacked by Corbynites for doing so. Look back through the thread.

Is it acceptable to argue that every ill in this world leads directly to America (I know many of them do) without criticising leaders of left wing oligarchies?
Nobody was talking about America. Irrelevant.

In my view it's not possible to live this life with one tunnel vision approach to politics. Every point of view will have strengths and weaknesses but the inability to accept when another viewpoint has merit leads to a shallow argument.
