To be fair they did bring in Zola as boss before that (don't suppose he was cheap)

John Terry subject of a 100,000 pw bid from Birmingham, a Championship team that missed relegation by 2 points on the final day of last season...madness.

They got bought out last season though didn't they so there owners are willing to splash the cash to get to the premier league (like majority of champs teams).

Some discussions apparently about reducing each half to 30 minutes, but stopping the clock when the ball isn't in play. Also looking at not allowing rebounds after penalties.

Change for changes sake?

It's actually being proposed by the people in charge of the rules so there must be an outside chance. Would be me done with football if it happened though as is such a fundamental change in the game that has existed for over a century. Doesn't appeal to me as would almost be a different game and in the top flight you can almost guarantee they'd use the stoppages to insert ad breaks into games.

Silence, like a cancer, grows.
Hear my words that I might teach you.
Take my arms that I might reach you."

But my words like silent raindrops fell
And echoed in the wells of silence

And the people bowed and prayed
To the neon God they made
And the sign flashed out its warning
And the words that it was forming

Or he earns in 1 week - 3 times the average yearly salary of a nurse or double that of a police officer in the year.

I know its been said over and over but that is fucking obscene.

Obscene and irrelevant. Like comparing apples and moondust, or any other two things that are completely different and unrelated in every way.

That said, I did have a rather nice moondust crumble with custard the other day

Shame Power has ditched the model.... QPR, slightly off the rails, would have been a good match for us.
