  1. i'll be following north queensland fury and the progress of club captain robert bernard fowler. so far, played 2, lost 2 - but god did score a pen. widely tipped as this season's a-league whipping boys. does s***ness come any greater than bottom of the heap of australian football's (only) national league? ... and they are based in the magnificently-named townsville.
  2. credit to you for the way you're dealing with this... and for eschewing the vengeful 'five minutes in a room with this guy' approach, that some people equate with justice.
  3. your call ultimately. reason why i suggested expressing 'sympathy' or at least 'understanding' of his feelings is to demonstrate you're not being obstructive to the rights of a natural father because of personal issues you have with him - without condoning his outlook or past. by saying you and your missus are willing to do 'what you can' (loose term), but qualifying that with making clear the priority is her welfare, you might underline how rational you are, rather than making threats. that said, i've no idea of the culture that exists within the U.S. social services - but certainly any h
  4. wouldn't put that in myself, zoob. it comes across as overly-dramatic and might weaken the impact of any description of the abuse that goes on and make it seem that your opposition is based on personal animosity towards the guy. i'd acknowledge sympathy for the father's feelings - being separated from his daughter - but feel that until he is able to overcome his inability to treat his own offspring with the humanity to which she is entitled, you see no choice but to put her emotional interests ahead of your legal obligation to uphold the terms of his access to her. i'd say you hope for bot
  5. if you 'need' the player and you pay the money, then - by definition - they are 'worth' the outlay.
  6. i like supergrass. always struck me as the kind of band that just gets on with making music and developing their style, devoid of any need to follow trends.
  7. his derby debut, when he came on for Gerrard was pretty remarkable, i thought. dictated the game for the 20 minutes or show he was on and was unlucky not to get the goal. he looked a real find. it may take a tweak of the tactics to accommodate him in a natural role, but i reckon Xabi's departure will herald a bit of a shift in the way we play, anyway.
  8. i'd like to think the silver lining of Alonso's departure might be the emergence of Lucas from Xabi's shadow and him asserting his own authority in the centre of midfield
  9. not often i agree (almost) entirely with you, but this time i do. except for kevin davies.
  10. christ. roll on the new season and 1st september.
  11. what, like a gag? ... oh, i see what you mean now.
  12. she is poison. the term 'annoying' only flatters her.
  13. haha. that's inspired. it's made for beerguts. still sooner wear that than the palace kit above.
