  1.  We had a problem similar to this,,of course I am not with BT, but the similarities to your problem are a very real. Our landline is digital and runs through the internet service. Anyway the service (Wi Fi  throughout the apt.)like yours was intermittent and would take the phone with it, sometimes I had to reboot , other times it would come back on it's own but the phone would not. After 2 or 3 weeks  of over the phone type "service" and no one coming to fix it my wife cancelled everthing we have with the company. Someone called back a few days later and wanted to know why, of course my wife told him in no uncrtain terms. As we had paid a month ahead  the service was still with us in a form of a notice period. The day after the phone call from their manager the service was normal and stayed that way for almost the full month, when another call came in asking if we wanted to reconsider, so we did but with resevations. However we have never had a repeat of the problem and it has been quite some time now. So, my friend tell  BT  to fix it or forget the account. It's amazing what threatening  to get your service elsewhere can do.

    How can you expect Blades fans to post on here when the natch is in progress when we are at the match?

     

    Or is the new football fan of the 21st century someone who is a fan of a club but doesn't actually support them.

    Lol at new age fan, I was watching football in Sheffield when both clubs were in Div 1 and both Liverpool teams were in Div 2. As far as physical support is concerned, that is not so easy when you have lived 3500 miles away for the last 38 years. I do take in a game ,however, when I come over during the season.

    There is a lot of so called successful business men buying football clubs around these parts without much evidence as to where the source of the funds come from .

    Lol there are more Unitedites posting long posts on here than the current Blades game which is in progress right now. 😉


  4. Everton in the bottom 3. I was about 8 or 9 last time the Toffees were in Div 2. Silva will be gone soon I would think, but Everton are not having much luck either. It would be nice to see the club have a leap of faith and give Silva a chance to get out of their predicament, but it doesn't work that way anymore, unfortunately.

    The way we've been playing in the last couple of games, I'll be disappointed if we don't come away from this game at least 

    2 - 0 winners. 

     Newcastle have been not that bad in spurts, hope United catch them on a down day.

    That is why the EFL should get it sorted out ASAP,   it is not fair to the fans having to wait till say April then finding a points deduction almost at the end of the season. The fans have a right to know and the EFL should say when the hearings are taking place and get on with them.

    The trouble is now it is likely in the hands of lawyers,especially with potential criminal charges involved. It may not even be resolved this season.Of course that would make it even harder on the fans and the players, imagine winning promotion and then being dumped down a division or two before the season began.

    How far down did Rangers and Juventus get demoted by their repective leagues?

    Is it any wonder the younger generation are getting thought of as soft when you see articles such as the one below, some people can't see something for what it is, a simple joke.  Do these people do it just to see their name in the media, see something they don't like and take offence. Years ago something like this would be just laughed off but not now it's straight to social media and get it all over the Internet. They want a world where everything is politically correct.

    I wonder what Mr. Judge's verdict was on his Litttle Ms. Judge's protest. Lol.


  8.  The worst part is that this is going to have a negative impact on the players and coaches and will most certainly affect their play. Imagine this: "what if we do win today, the league will just take away the points anyway, so why bother? " That is not to say they will deliberately lose games, but it will be hard for them mentally to go all out in a game and give that little extra.

     It will be a real shame for all concerned, players, fans and everyone innocently affected by the wheelings and dealings of corrupt business people.

    I wanted to see more of Keitel as Angelo Bruno, but he wasn't a key part.

     

    Agree about Pacino going a bit OTT with the Hoffa character.  Unless testimony from people who knew him, said he was like that- I thought Pacino was reincarnated as Tony Montana.

    Yeah, I never did see Jack Nicholson in the film Hoffa but wouldn't mind tracking it down to see how Jack portrayed the guy.

    The Irishman    8/10

     

    Surely to please the Mafia movie fans or followers of Scorcese and De Niro- I fit in both categories.

    Enjoyable romp of 3 hrs which dwells in to the Hoffa links more than anything else.

    Yeah, good to see De Niro and Pesci back as gangster buddies. Thought Pacino was a bit over the top as Hoffa, but he seemed to be having fun with it.I think your rating is about right, but like you I am a fan of the genre and of the Scorcese, De Niro and Keitel combo.

    Show me those percentages. There are, according to our beloved leader - who always tells the truth - 74 convicted terrorists out on licence. So your odds are currently 1-74. I don’t know if they’re including ex-jihadists in that number, they are less likely I to go back to old ways. I’ll dig out figures in the morning if I remember.

    Well I hope those  other 73 are being monitored  a lot closer than the one that got away, because he took 2 lives and that is 2 lives too many in my book.

    I'll ask the point again since you wont give the courtesy of answering it...  Do you know that for certain? I think it's incumbent on a civilised society to try and rehabilitate all people regardless of how hopeless it may be.

    Here is my answer, seeing as my reasoning on the matter doesn't work on you.

    Nothing is certain in life other than death.So I stick to percentages and they tell me that the odds of permanently rehabbing a fervent religous extremist are exceedingly low and not worth risking innocent lives to prove the odds wrong.

    Two poor people found out the hard way about the attempted rehabilitation of an extreme religious zealot. It is simply not worth innocent people's lives to find out if these types of criminals can or cannot be rehabilitated. Once is more than enough in these types of crimes . No second chances to these guys is my stance, and I am not alone in my way of thinking, by a long shot.

    Might have avoided the deaths of est 70-80 million people if we did. 

     

    Now stop behaving like a child and changing the subject when you run out of coherent argument.   Back on topic with you. 

     

    You have been asked at least twice now what your solution to the problem would be.  Its obvious that you totally disagree with rehabilitation for such offences.   It is also blindingly obvious that locking up and leaving people to rot is simply not realistic in view of the already overpopulation, conflicts with human rights laws and a reported £63k per year price tag for each incarceration.    So I ask again, what would your solution be?

    There are certain criminals who cannot possibly be rehabilitated

     With your level of naievity, it is you that thinks like a child, not me. The solution is a separate law for terrorists, like other countries, how hard is that to understand?

    Whilst I’m dusting down my copy of Godwin’s Law, why don’t you tell me what’s wrong with thinking deeply about a problem.

     

    Challenging the Nazis didn’t get rid of them, or their vile ideology. And it isn’t 1939 any more.

      Never mind who Godwin is or was or what his bloody law was, continue to think deeply and just be careful with the ones who don't think as deeply as you do, because. believe me, they won't give a **** about you or your textbook phrases when they have a weapon in their hand and are about to attack you.

    But, it wouldn’t have stopped another muppet doing something similar. Ecco is correct, we need to look at why these people do these things. The answers might not be terribly comfortable 

    Oh my god, you guys really are something. Maybe we should have sat back and wondered why Hitler did what he did instead of challenging him eh?

    It would definitely  have stopped this muppet doing what he did on friday .

    Yeah, give me the "knee jerk," reaction of the guys who nailed the *******, any day of the week.

    I honestly get sick of folks telling us that these guys can be reasoned with and making excuses for their behaviour. Eliminate them or lock them up for the rest of their lives is all they deserve.

    How many apologists on here have actually given the passers by ,who stopped the guy, any credit for the courage they showed in real time. Too busy blaming society and the poor sod's rights, no doubt.
