  1. The Government put the ball in local councils court by cutting back and making the councils get extra money anyway they can. They knew that a lot of people would just blame their council as it is the council that sets council tax and decides which services to cut. Just the Governments way of deflecting criticism onto councils to avoid being blamed.
  2. Have just read the article below, 47 councils are charging householders to dump waste at waste sites, one council even charges £20 to dispose of an old toilet seat. Good to see that ministers are going to look into this it is nothing more than another tax on people. Councils cut services, raise council tax and still want more by charging people like gardeners £4 to dump soil. https://www.msn.com/en-gb/money/news/ministers-blast-tip-tax-imposed-by-the-back-door-as-one-local-council-charges-residents-£20-to-dump-a-toilet-seat/ar-AAEquON?ocid=spartanntp
  3. It is I agree, but since when have clubs really cared about the fans.
  4. Looks like Ashley has jumped the gun, how arrogant is that man.
  5. The compensation must have been sorted because it has been confirmed he is Newcastle's new manager. https://www.mirror.co.uk/sport/football/news/breaking-steve-bruce-confirmed-new-18010532
  6. According to Sky Bet's latest odds, former Chelsea star Gianfranco Zola has emerged as the new favourite overnight - appearing seemingly from nowhere to odds of 7/4.
  7. Sorry you are wrong, he walked out on Palace and they took out an injunction that stopped him taking the Birmingham job, Wednesday could do the same. From what I read he can't take the job then until compensation is sorted out. https://www.thestar.co.uk/sport/football/sheffield-wednesday/latest-owls-news/what-sheffield-wednesday-may-do-after-steve-bruce-resigns-ahead-of-newcastle-united-move-477584
  8. Don't think that money is the reason at all, he will be the lowest paid manager in the PL according to an article I read yesterday, roughly on the same he was on at Hillsborough. Obviously Bruce had no thought for the club that thought about his circumstances and let him take the time out he requested (good luck with anything like that from Ashley) before he joined Wednesday. Also no thought about the fans that stuck up for him after the tv pundits had a go about him not arriving for another month after signing up for Wednesday when they played Chelsea.
  9. I bet Mr Chansiri has been looking for a replacement from the moment Newcastle started sounding him out, lets hope we can get a decent manager, Chris Hughton would be a good shout.
  10. It isn't like Ashley can't afford it is it, he is just being tight and trying to get him on the cheap.
  11. Well according to the article below he is only getting £1m a year at Newcastle which will make him the lowest paid manager in the PL, Benitez was on £6m. Obviously if he does go, then it is not for the money as some people have said. https://www.shieldsgazette.com/sport/football/newcastle-united/revealed-the-newcastle-united-contract-offer-that-will-see-steve-bruce-become-lowest-paid-premier-league-manager-476958
  12. Just reading about the price of season tickets in the PL and how much seven of the clubs have put them up. Ten clubs haven't increased prices and Southampton have dropped their lowest priced ST by £171 down to £399 . Yet TV deals are set to bring in £9.2billion for Premier League teams over the next three years on top of the £2.5billion clubs earned in TV and performance prize money last season. No wonder teams like newly promoted Villa (15% increase) have gone out and spent £100m already on new players, they are scared of getting relegated again, the PL is one hell of a gravy train for the clubs that are in it and can stay there. https://www.mirror.co.uk/news/uk-news/most-expensive-premier-league-season-18205570
  13. Sorry to hear this, I used to love listening to his Praise or Grumble on the way back from Hillsborough, he always came across as a happy cheerful man who loved doing his show. R.I.P.
  14. I see another rumoured target won't be signing for Wednesday, Jordan Willis has signed for Sunderland.
  15. From what I have seen some clubs are putting managers on one year rolling contract, also from what I have read the compensation figure is more like £5m. The annoying thing is if he does go he will probably take the back room staff. If they have to bring a new manager and backroom staff in it is going to upset the clubs preparations for the new season three weeks before kick off.
