Can't knock that, nice gesture by an obviously nice bloke.

He is also auctioning Beckers shirt from Sunday for Cure Leukaemia.

Giving out vouchers for a hot drink to Scunny fans travelling (again) to tonight's match. Not sure if they're funding it or the club is and they're staffing it, but what a great gesture. Hats off to you, ladies and gents!

Well hats off to them (or you if you're part of it), a splendid gesture. Kind of thing that makes football special.

Stoke join Palace, Brighton, Man Utd and Liverpool (there may well be others) in assuring matchday staff they will still be paid during the coronavirus crisis

This is a good read. Best guess seems to be it's Mark Noble.

Really? Are you certain it's genuine? Or are you whooshing Reeves, because that article phone "conversation" reads very much likes something dreamt up by a kid in primary school, set with the challenge of a short story assignment for the advernoon  Hmmm

Your take. I thought it was a good read. Possibly not enough meandering paragraphs or well honed critiques of bad accents in online casino ads for you? Each to their own

I read afterwards that the journalist in question apparently has a history of making stuff up, but Iíve no idea. Must be tiring being an expert in everything.

It is my take of course. I accept your own opinion, even if I don't agree with it, yet you seem mightily offended though. Apologies...maybe you are Jon Nic? For what it's worth we were talking about a "journalist" and their writing style; I wasn't attacking your own writing style, yet it seems you've brought the bar down to that level of by doing so towards me? Too much time inside maybe?  Hmmm

I'm just saying it reads like a fabricated conversation transcript. There's no way either of us can prove or disprove the conversation ever happened. The only thing we could do is look for other sources that may back up this conversation, possibly by the said authors publication. However it seems like there is nothing else forthcoming. Which added to the doubt of its genuity imo.

PS: Well honed critiques of bad accents in online casino ads was very accurate and relevant for the thread it was directed to but it's nice to know you read the detail  Wink

Or maybe we live in a society consensus where it struggles to accept that some people absorb more stuff than others? So to make themselves feel better they have a cheap shot. Winning.

Point being, I wouldn't trust Jon Nic as far as I can throw him (and that's not far, I'd go into the science of it but...anyway). Understandably you don't have to trust me but then I'm not getting paid to write articles (and 'thank fuck you're not' I hear you mutter).
