  1. I don't think Green is that interested anymore. I read an interview yesterday with a youngish woman who'd been a longtime customer of Topshop who gave her views, that are slightly different to yours. She said that Topshop etc hadn't really kept up with the times. However, she went on, what is doing well recently, and now, are very much 'fast fashion' brands Disposable stuff, produced quickly, that after a few wears, and a handful of months... you might as well throw away. Her Topshop stuff is better quality, and lasts. That says to me that there is a decent brand there that needs reimagining, Apart from the point where an ar*ehole bought BHS from Green for £1, took £2.3 Million out of the business in 'consultancy fees' for himself , and then let it go bust....... Green hadn't really invested in the business for years, no real online presence as I recall. Tired, drab clothing ranges in the stores... I guess he's done much the same with Arcadio, Topshop etc.... There will be buyers for some of his brands.
  2. If the spotlight wasn't on him rather more this time round, he'd probably try to do a BHS.
  3. Is he the actor who once said to Sophia Loren... " God, I want to ***k you..." And she replied... "Well, if you do, and I find out, there's going to be trouble..."
  4. I still have , somewhere, my copy from 1971 of Neil Young's album... 'After the Gold Rush', with 'Only Love Can Break Your Heart' on. Must say, though, I just about prefer St. Ettienne's cover from many years later, and still long ago.
  5. Tbf, that incline looks like one those that sit there looking innocent, and no bother, and before you know it your car's running away from you.
  6. I think you're going to be put to bed by plenty of teams over the next months.
  7. Good game today. If things go well, and it all works out ... we should be meeting you again next season in League 1.
  8. I was under the impression that refusal to update voting procedures, eg electronic..., was very much coming from the Republican side of things. And that that comes from the underlying knowledge that in a straighforward electoral fight, they would never win another US election. Hence their pandering to the extremists, baseless arguments about voting legitimacies.....
  9. Yes, interesting. I did wonder what it was now all about in Atlanta, going Democrat. If someone had ever asked me for 3 names that I'd associate with slaving, lynchings, red neckery etc., I'd have said Atlanta, Alabama and Missouri.
  10. I think everyone except Mr T knows the game is up.
  11. He already did..., he's the postmaster general. https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2020/aug/24/louis-dejoy-postmaster-general-usps-house-hearing
  12. Season before last, we scraped along at or near the bottom of League 1. And got out of the bottom 2 places a few games before the end of the season. Last season, it was similar, worse actually. And were bottom when the season came to an abrupt end. This season. Looks like more of the same, and we're now second bottom of League 2, with 1 point. The constant running theme through these seasons have been the viewpoints that the assorted players looked decent, but the team was underperfoming in terms of the results. I think I said on a previous post here..., give it 4 or 5 games to come to a view, so I'm saying nothing just now. But really, all you've said is the same stuff that's been trotted out for the last couple of years. Injuries.., refs..etc. Other teams get injuries, other supporters complain about the refs etc, etc. The fact is, at this rate, the Lowland League will be staring us in the face. Something has to change.
  13. tbf, that's a bit better than the stomach turning Mr Universe pics.
  14. Stick your nose around the exhaust of your car, and see if you still think it's healthy.
  15. That's appalling. There must have been some better B & B's than that .
  16. Learn what you need to learn, do what you need to do, to position yourself, to be ready at the right time... ?
  17. ".. all in wrestling, like the World of Sport... " Commentary seems pretty good, to me. 2 lovely goals. In general, though, I seem to recall a few seasons ago.., Brechin City being referred to as a bunch of cloggers. Look where they are now. For Stranraer, 2 games, 2 red cards. 1 point. Not good enough by a long way.
  18. “Never trust a man who, when left alone in a room with a tea cozy, doesn't try it on. ” William Connolly.
  19. ^^^^^^^^ Not in fighting mood today.
  20. Well, that's one news item. Case you hadn't noticed, the oil companies are struggling. BP shares, for example, are at what I read as a 25 year low. Investment monies are pouring in to various renditions of green, ethical directions. Try reading up on ESG, SRI for example. If you have a smartphone, check out the app 'Grid Carbon' and see the percentages of renewable energy used on the National Grid..., from Solar, Wind, Gas, Nuclear, Coal ( just about zero ). It's s the easiest thing in the world to sit back and say "Doomed, doomed, we're all f*cked....". We all have choices. Make them ..... in the direction you/we want to go.
  21. I hope others are right, and this is seen as a wake up call.
  22. Tbh.., on the basis of the pre-season, and the 2 games in the League Cup so far... If nothing changes, this looks to me rather like a mid-table season ahead. Lots of the players have changed, but very much the same on display... plenty of pressure, possession, but shots not being put away, plus defensive frailty.
