Anyone get the WhatsApp saying Eddie Howe is going to be announced as manager next week. Finalising Lennon severance package at the minute. Not sure if he will be the right man or not. Iíd rather someone higher profile and with European experience. But then again, whoís going to want the job ffs.

The one that says he will be in after the weekends game? We donít have a game this weekend. A different one says he would be in today. I will believe it when I see it

One bad season in ten? Christ the night, you lot are getting on like Madrid looking to get rid of ZZ !

They won the triple quadruple and that's never been done, the hype of the 10 in a row seems to have clouded the heads somewhat

There hasn't been a creditable team in those ten years until now that has actually challenged Celtic, seems the owners have coasted a bit and while Lennon seems to be taking a lot of flack, no doubt some of it warranted, the players and owners have to take some blame also.

Having a ding dong league surely is more exciting than the previous 9 titles

Thereís no excitement in a ding dong or wanting the manager sacked. And the board are getting w lot of stick from fans. A lot of the stick Lennon is getting is warranted alright. Iím not on bird with the personal abuse though that some favour

Shane Duffy definitely having the worst period of his life. Imagine signing for your boyhood club, primed to do a 10 in a row and then producing those performances. Man has no shame.

I feel so bad for Duffy that it hasnít worked out for him. Needs to be let fob along with any other loanees.

New mod here.  Honestly have no idea how many other active mods are on this board.

Posts with personal insults will be deleted by me, as will any post that quotes the insult.  Can't be much fairer than that.  I won't comment on any post, but if you find a post of yours gone, that's why.

Tedious, boring entries will be left alone for now...I won't merge threads, but I would appeal that the appropriate thread be used and not create another thread because you can.

I hope to log on every day, but usually in the evening so I mightn't be on top of things immediately.

Absence of mods was a failure recently.  I spent a bit of time deleting posts on the Death Notices thread and  I expect future responses in this thread to be a one or two sentence comment on the person.  Anything deeper than that will be deleted, so if you want to discuss that person's political or social impact I'd ask you to create a new thread. 

Hardly worth going back on old threads at this stage, so everyone is on a clean slate with me unless you've received a note from me in the last week.  Posters will be asked only once to quit the personal abuse, second yellow card means ban.

I don't know if mods post under another user name or not, I suppose I'll find out soon enough.

I appreciate everyone's efforts (or the vast majority of posters anyway) and I promise to do what I can to help.  All posts reported will be reviewed, but as of now, only posts with personal insults or posts gone off topic on the Death Notices thread will be deleted.

If you think that is censorship...start a thread on it and see what the board thinks.  Or comment on it in this thread.

I expect some support on keeping things clean and decent. 

Over to you all.

Oh I'll be reporting posts left right and centre! i was an informer for years but it didn't always do much good with the moderators seemingly AWOL. Nice to see someone bringing order to the board. Best of luck to the new regime!

Touts will be shat!

On. You forgot on. Touts will be shat on

Bolingoli went away without telling the club he had gone. That was the big issue with him

Sorry boys, I was being sarcastic (fairly obviously I thought), so I'll stop rather than pollute further.

It was pretty clear mate

If the new Mod isn't going to ban that poster can ye all PLEASE put it on Ignore.
About 4 threads at least currently being ruined.
I see you and a lot of others are falling into a trap.
First rule in the Internet  browsers handbook is, "Don't feed the trolls."

I fell into that trap but when he says U40s are at risk and your friend almost died due to covid itís hard not to react

12
How is it all of them? Seriously??? Do you think no threat is the same as little threat?

13
He didn't acknowledge that road deaths are more likely to kill u40s than Covid.

Can we all agree that statistically speaking road deaths are more likely to kill u40s than Covid?

How can you agree that? They are false equivalences, road accidents (and resulting deaths) are not contagious.
Angelo's argument is that we get around a certain number of road deaths per year, therefore we should allow drink driving, no seat belts, and have all cars without brakes

Angelo's logic holds that if we did that, road deaths would not increase

Angelo's logic is if somebody wants to drink drive home without a seat belt in a car with no brakes, that's fine, because that individual "is making the best decision for themselves, the individual"

Never mind that might crash into another car and kill a load of people, all that matter's is that individual's "personal utility"

This is what far right far right libertarian "logic" holds

And the anti-lockdown, anti-vaxx ideology is far right libertarian

It's the ideology of a psychopath

And people should not be politically correct and extend any undue respect to this psychopathy

We should say what it is - psychopathy

I've never said anything like that.

All I have done is point out that we accept half measures on something that kills far more young people every single year than Covid.

While we have draconian measures on a virus that is little threat to the u40 demograph.

We are soft on road deaths if anything. Society accepts road deaths but does not accept Covid deaths.

Once again I am using statistics and facts to put forward a very reasoned and informed argument while you are howling at the moon - psychopath, anti-vaxxers bla, bla, bla - the rantings of an unhinged maniac.

Could you make up your mind. Is it no threat to U40s or is it little threat? Hard enough to take you serious at the best of times nevermind when you canít even agree with yourself

The statistics say we have had 3 deaths in 40-50k cases. Minimal threat.

So is it minimal threat, little threat or no threat? Can you at least agree with yourself here?

What is the reason for someone under 40 in good health to get the vaccine? There is absolutely no upside to it as far as I can see.
Basic regard for one's own health

Basic regard for the health of their loved ones

Basic regard for the idea of society, and for humanity itself

A vaccine that has not been proven to either stop anyone contracting or transmitting the virus.

A virus which is not any sort of threat to anyone fit or unhealthy under the age of 40.

What's the upside? What you posted seem to be rather flimsy and ideological rather than based in reality and facts.

Big pharma will get very rich so maybe for their shareholders, that is an upside.

Not any sort of threat to anyone under 40? A friend of mine who is 38 has just come out of hospital after spending a week there. But aye, he was under no threat at all. Ejit.

I go on facts rather than anecdotal stories.

We have had 3 deaths in the u40 categories with close to 50k positive cases - that's a fact. 3 deaths in 9 months of the virus in the u40 category - how many deaths have we had from road traffic accidents in the same category in the same time? 56 people dead in 2020 in the O6 from road deaths, I can guarantee you there were more than 3 in the u40 category. Yet we accept road deaths as part of life.

Anecdotal story? Let me tell you this you condescending little p***k, that lad was on a ventilator for 4 days. His family thought he was on his way out. But yeah, keep spreading shite that covid is no risk to people under 40. Dickhead.

I'm talking about facts here, one of us being rational and you're being a hard man with bad manners, pathetic really.

Statistically Covid is no risk to under 40s, absolutle fact.

Youíre full of shit. If it was no risk to U40s why would an under 40 have spent near a week on a ventilator.
Hard man? Bad manners? Have a read through your own posts you idiot. And you being rational? Are you actually serious?
