As a wiganer I'll only believe this when I see him running out in cherry and white. Slightly more than sceptical even though I'd love it to be true.

Johnson plays so much better when Tomkins is in the team without him necessarily shining (although he had a good game today).

Johnsons resurgence in form maps to Tomkins return.

That may be so but the lenders - and that includes you if you contribute to a pension scheme - took a huge hit in 2011, details of which I posted earlire

 

as I said I don't disagree with any of that. Whilst my money may have been lent to them (actually thats unlikely because most of my pension fund is in property), I don't think I can be considered a lender as it wasn't up to me who that money was lent to. If you're giving what amounts to unsecured loans you'd better be very sure of who you're giving your money too!

 

This should be seen as a lesson on all sides.

I'll add that, while I definitely believe people should pay their debts back (and I've always managed it thus far), there has to be a level of responsibility on both sides. If I go in to a bank and ask for a personal unsecured load of £35 million then I'd be laughed out of the bank pretty quickly. The lenders have to put their hands up for taking a ridiculously bad risk.

Hi Dave

 

when I got married (10 years in October) my Dad who notoriously doesn't give advise said "never stop talking, never stop listening" and that seems to have been good advise.

 

My Aunty Doreen, said something like, you're not the same person at 20, as you are at 25, and then 30, and to a lesser extent 40 as well, make sure you chose someone you can grow with.

 

Whatever happens good luck.
