    17/18 Promotion Charge

    Prediction time!! I think we will lose the 1st leg against Middlesbrough, but win the second and win the tie. We will then face Fulham in the final.... and lose 3-0. I just think Fulham are too good.

    Cowboy trades people

    (Feel free to merge mods if there is already an existing topic) My parents are idiots. They paid a window person £1.5k to come and fit some new windows. They had a guy come out and take some ‘measurements’, before paying the deposit. They were the given a date as to when the work would be carried out. That date was in February. Now, they haven’t been able to reach the person and the company is no longer showing on companies House. After a quick google there are some reviews written this week from others saying that they have also been a victim of this. So, payment was made via cheque and it has cashed. What can my parents do to get their money back..... cheers.

    The lineup is fine. Chance to rest Albert and Snoddy ready for play offs. There should still be enough in the lineup to get at least a point against Ipswich - if not, oh well.

    Might as well have just Gabby’s clothing brand. Could have got a small discount. Missed a trick there....

    Fulham unbeaten in 22 games. That is rediculous. Really do not want us going up against them in the playoffs. Even Millwall went 17 unbeaten before tonight. These are the sorts of runs that teams need to go on to get promoted. We haven’t quite achieved this, so maybe playoffs is about right for us this time around.

    The Careers/Jobs thread

    VT - I'm stressing, and I really could do with some sound advice from knowledgable people! I'm 25, working in recruitment, but I have hit a bit of a wall. I'm thinking I do not want to be working within this arena anymore. I don't have a degree, which limits me massively as far as I am concerned because every job I see they want someone of 'degree calibre'. I have never known what I wanted to do, I just drifted through school and got myself 10 GCSEs then took a couple of A-levels with the intention of going to uni. I had a place confirmed but then was offered a full time job, which I took. I have absolutely no idea of what to do with my life, I have so much ambition and desire to succeed, but god knows what in. It's stressing me out more now because the missus wants to buy a house etc and I am a little worried about losing my job for whatever reason and then not being able to find anything else. Does anybody have any sound advice to give, or know of any opportunities within the Nhants, oxfordshire or Buckinghamshire areas that might be coming up? Ironic really considering I work in recruitment eh? Thanks all.

    Robert Snodgrass

    Probs a daft question, but I don’t really know the workings... do we have to jump through any hoops to be able to keep Snoddy (and the other loan players) for the playoffs?

    Isn’t the closest Italian equivalent of our Spag Bol actually tuna based? And then obviously there is Ragu which is sauce and meat...

    Losing to Bolton and QPR and then drawing with Hull. We should be on 84pts now. Gutted. More if you factor in the fact we lost at Reading at the start of the season, who really are not very good.... But, still, I’m delighted with the season so far. Yes people will say we are Aston Villa and we should be winning every single game we play, but the reality of it is, we are a championship side and in some ways we are still adjusting to that. We’ve played 42 games and we have picked up points in 32 of those, that’s pretty good going. Fingers crossed for the play offs - it’s going to be rediculously nervy, especially if we make the final.

    Anyone played this? Been playing on Xbox past few weeks - annoys the hell out of me, because I can barely get any kills, but it is great fun to mess around on. I primarily play in a team of 3 with a couple of buddies.

    Whilst at the antinatal class that we attended, the figure for transfers to Oxford from the midwife led unit that we wanted to go to was 45%. Which, obviously, is really high. The reason we had to go was because the baby’s heart rate had increased quite a lot, so blue lighting to Oxford was necessary under those circumstances.

    Nice one @NurembergVillan - congratulations. Have you been told about the group that is available in case you want to have a chat about the birth or pregnancy in general? Forgot what it is called but it’s something I might need to do. My wife and I had a little girl last Saturday, (Paddy’s day) and it was a tough labour. Nothing went to plan and we ended up having to be blue lighted to Oxford as the hospital where I am based is midwife led... The baby came out quick quickly in the end, but she wasn’t breathing. The midwife made the decision to hit an alarm and a team of 8/9 people came running in to try and get the baby to breath on her own. They succeeded. To add to that, my wife then had to go into theatre to have the placenta removed because it became stuck. I was an emotional wreck, and once my wife finally made it onto the ward, I was told I couldn’t stay and had to leave. Was the hardest thing I have ever done. Its left me quite emotional still, and I am finding that when I am on my own, I start to cry. The thought of seeing my child born and there was nothing from her, the amount of blood surrounding my wife and her in a state because she couldn’t see what was happening, the alarm and the people rushing in... can’t seem to shake it.

    I’m not really one for buying football shirts anymore, but I would buy that away one for sure.

    It’s never cool. Just post the pics and say nothing....people will still comment and say “looks lovely”, “so jealous” etc etc.

    My beards are a bit shit. I can grow it quite well under my chin and above my top lip, but the side parts on my cheeks are just fluff, pretty much. My wife loves it though. I’m beginning to think she is doing it on purpose to divert female attention. Must be it.

    Can someone bullet point the correct/safest process for purchasing bitcoin? Just so I have it correct in my head.
