  1. Surely it would have to be reasonably substantial otherwise where's any investor going to get any money back? I can't see anyone putting money into the Wolfpack now. There;s no return and even if there was it would be years away and negligible. I genuinely feel sorry for Wolfpack fans,but nobody else comes away from this debacle with any credit.
  2. I missed that Stan Robin was leaving to Villeneuve?! I thought he was one of Toulouse's better players..what's the story there?
  3. Given this seems to have been a problem going back months..not a one off..I think she's entitled to cause a stink. Clearly this keeps on happening and they have been allowed to get away with it..hence it keeps on happening.
  4. A bit of a random question, but my pond yielded shed loads of toads recently. It looks like there is more toad spawn in the last couple of days. I've googled everywhere but cant find an answer to: Do toads breed at the end of June in the UK?
  5. Football is king in Southport. There was very little interest in rugby of either code when I grew up there.
  6. Just finished a book called 'Legacy: Gangsters, Corruption and the London' Olympics'. It was a bit of a slog in places, but the picture it paints of corruption,nepotism and cover ups in the police, local authorities and possibly even at Parliament level was illuminating. When it comes to the Met and the various departments a lot of it sounds even more incredible than parts of Line of Duty. It makes you wonder how much of that is replicated across the country.
  7. My initial reaction was oh no not another one. But, if they can establish a genuine rivalry maybe there is a glimmer of hope. A lot of football and rugby clubs developed off the back of status rivalry amongst towns and benefactors. I certainly would have anymore transatlantic teams for a long time .
  8. Unfortunately he is injured more often than not, which is probably why Leicester would accept this deal. I think he has the skills to succeed but his body will prevent him from being on the field consistently; which will prevent him becoming anywhere near good enough of a player for the money they will throw at him. I can't see this as being money well spent.
  9. I was having a debate the other week with my brother in law about why I've ditched my car and he claimed, with loads of sources which I admittedly didn't read, that air travel was in actual fact a far greater cause of man made climate change than cars. Only this morning I was reading about Jordan running out of water. I think the direction of travel if you pardon the pun will increasingly be towards minimising unecessary global travel as the effects of global warming become increasingly more severe and frequent. But who am I to argue the point with a Green Party Official.
  10. Some good points Cheshire. Given the pace of climate change and the increasing pace of opposition to pollutants, particularly air travel, I wonder whether the idea of setting up a transatlantic league will seem quite anachronistic before very long. It's very easy I agree to get on your high horse and criticise this and that without examining one's own practices, but actively establishing a trans atlantic league which involves multiple air miles seems to be actively heading in the wrong direction.
  11. Given the damaging effects of air travel on the environment, surely the last thing we should be looking to do is to increase our carbon footprint by creating a transatlantic league. Sorry, but on environmental grounds alone, I don't think it's the right thing to do.
