General discussion / Re: The WINE thread

It's an exponential price v quality rise (up to a point) with wine.

Every bottle on wine has a lot of basic (similar) fixed costs: glass, labeling, tax, marketing, production, transport,  mark up etc - so if you buy a £5 bottle...how much are you actually paying for the wine....perhaps around £4.50 fixed costs and maybe 50p wine?

If you buy a £10 bottle, you pay roughly the same fixed costs, but get maybe £5.50 wine

Personally I think there is a point where the ££ doesn't justify the (supposed) difference in quality and taste but certainly I think it;s worth paying that little but extra in the £10-£20 range for a decent bottle

According to https://www.transfermarkt.com/glasgow-rangers/transfers/verein/124

This season - Sevco have spent nearly €12million, recouped around €3million and brought in 9 players + more returning from loan etc

Where the fcuk are they getting the money???

I see Strabane escaped by the skin of their teeth again.

What has happened to them over this last few years??

From Div 1 to barely staying in Div 2.

Always thought a town of that size would be able to pull together a decent side....

What an amazingly stupid play by Montgomery running the kick out

Indeed - Rodgers didn't look too pleased on the sideline.

What’s he worth then know it all?.

if Amari Cooper is 'worth' a first rounder, Peterson is surely worth at least one first rounder plus something else. This league is starved of cover corners. I actually agree with you that he's not as brilliant as made out, but he is up there with the better corners in the league as Syf points out.

I'd say they'll look for 2 1s, and end up with a 1 and a 3.

Depends on who has a need, who is stupid enough to make a desperate trade etc etc  - these things are never predictable.

Personally I would never have given a 2nd away with Mack, for 2 x firsts as he is a truly generational players....Raiders were stupid enough to do it

Arsenal really seem to be a team of two halves.

If the Ref (as he should have) gives a penalty and second yellow it would be hard seeing any form of comeback.

One lucky escape later and it's welcome to the Ozil show in the next 45...

Funny old game.

*as ever we still need to see Arsenal v MU, LFC, MC, CFC, TH to gauge where they are really at...but at least they are currently dealing with the mediocre well enough (eventually)

Cross have a nice mix of young and old on the team.

If the O'Neills can keep their cool they will be serious contenders.

Given their ability to upset the odds this year against the fancied teams, what's the thoughts on Coalisland taking down Cross.....?

Would need to be able to take the 2 x O'Neills influence away from the game (especially Rian)  and have someone who could physically match up to Hanratty etc.....

Celtic are in no mans land, Rogers needs to start producing otherwise Tony will be back with his Coco lines.

It's very hard to motivate a team that has just won everything domestically - twice.

Ntcham wasn't bad last night to be fair, tried hard, as did KT. Results are all that matters at the moment.

So many questions about this year...

Is there a dressing room split...LG was making it clear he stands with Brendan last night?

Did we really lose McGinn over pocket change or was he determined to go to England?

What is our head of scouting been up to? Really poor buys this past few years

Edouard...£8million...really?

Rogic..has he settled into a comfort zone with his new contract or just having a little bad patch?

Did the Board just assume because we were coming off the back of double trebles that we would coast the league this year?

What has happened to Sinclair?

The squad we have right now, with everyone playing to 90+% is more than good enough to win the SPL....I think we will stick in around 2nd/3rd for a month then start to hit form.

Raiders continue to be a sh!t show.

$100 million coach Gruden bemoans lack of pass rush, but is relying on rookies to achieve pressure on QB and says he doesn't regret trading Mack (another sack v Seahawks btw).

'Leader' Irvin strolls about while Denver are in their 2 minute drill.

Not enough talent to rotate players in when Defense are clearly struggling. Can manage decent first half performances then wrecked in the second...who would have guessed with one of the oldest squads in the NFL

Bringing back a WR who is being suspended by the league, AFTER you had already cut him ..... and who you gave up a 3rd  round pick for - for what - 1 or 2 games?

Karl Joseph, a first round draft picking up splinters on the bench while Reggie Nelson ambles about the secondary

McKenzie's drafting has been woeful for the most part and yet another rebuild is on the cards.

So the Gruden era gets off to an underwhelming start. Who coulda guessed.

Carr looks every inch the broken player he was after his return last year, skittish in the pocket, dink and dunking, no  long throws, dumping the ball before receivers get open, which is very worrying.

He's getting paid franchise $$$ and needs to start playing like it.
