The Terrible Journalism & Tom English Thread


Recommended Posts

The BBC have decided to copy and paste a club statement, subjected it to no rigour or interrogation and stuck it up as "news" unbelievably lazy from the state broadcaster.

Which statement are you referring to? I can't see a club statement on the BBC website just now.

In comparison to who?  The Celtc loanee sent off last week or your shan new captain? ;) 

Quite like Scales to be honest. Stewart is a unit who isn’t the cleverest on the ball. What’s most important is they work as a pair, time will tell.

The donkey comment was in jest, don’t pay attention that much to opponents unless they really stand out.

I hope Ryan porteous pays for the protection he gets on here. 

Just don't mention him on Twitter.

The Hibs fans come running to abuse you in his honor. Despite what being said about him being factually correct at times, no matter what it is. They cannot accept him being criticised in any way.

Take the piss out of someone on twitter = Good

Others take the piss out of you on twitter = Bad

I mean, this is a summary of pretty much every response you've made on this board to anyone taking the piss out of Porteous.

I know that probably sounded sensible in your head but it doesn't really make a great deal of sense.

No great surprise........

All the Hibs fans keep doing is proving the point. You couldn't help it. 

No one is taking the piss. They're pointing out things about his behavior, character or general arrogant attitude that he has (which I know for a fact isn't wrong). Criticism isn't taking the piss.

Last time I posted a very valid and fair point about him and within 30 seconds I had 4-5 replies from Hibs fans having a meltdown. Which means there's people out there searching his name on Twitter so they can reply to people defending him and you're telling me that's not fucking weird?

It is.

But, so is you wasting time posting stuff about a Hibs player.

Your rage is absolutely delicious.

What would be the difference between commenting on a player on Twitter as opposed to on here, for example.

It's hardly weird that people make comments regarding high-profile, controversial and opinion splitting players.

You cant see the difference between here and Twitter?

OK, an example.   I said on another thread that guys like Morelos and Porteous are correctly called p***ks when they do wrong - As for RP, I can see his faults, but I can also see his plus points (as, obviously can Steve Clarke). He is statistically one of the SPFL best defenders, even though he had a slow start to the season.

While there are one or two wallopers incapable of being objective, especially about opposition players, I think that most on P&B are fine and you can have a sensible debate.

Twitter, by contrast, is full of complete bampots - basically shitebags who put out utter garbage about players, dont want to have a debate, and lose their shit when someone calls them on it (and I include loads of Hibs twitter there, plenty of arseholes).

Anyway, enough of this pish, I have invoices to do.

Bloody hell, that's not even remotely copied and pasted.

it was the only article that i could see that had any hint of being copied and pasted. Even then it is a good report in the end

What stats incidentally? I know of an SPFL team who have only conceded two goals thus far. Another team in the same league has only conceded 4.
