  1. 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.
  2. Dogs...

    Yea I saw those reports also, but read a bit further into it and I don't think it's quite what some people made out. Still, the story is just emotional, and makes me think about the relationship between man and their canine friends. We're going to get a Golden Retriever. my wife wants to get a dachshund at some point as well though...
  3. Dogs...

    Have you guys seen the trailer for A Dogs Purpose? Wife and I had a few tears when this came on at the cinema earlier. Don't think I could handle the actual film! I think the UK release for this is April. Dogs really are Mans best friend. Can't wait until we get our puppy
  4. Match Thread: Villa v Barnsley

    Don't worry chaps - Newcastle away next to hopefully get this season back on track.
  5. Relegation thread 2016/17

    Some real shite like Ipswich, Forest and Brentford? All of which we have lost to in consecutive weeks. We are not a good footballing side and we are playing too many new players which never works. Relegation is a possibility. Which players do you reckon we can retain when we drop down to L1?
  6. Steve Bruce

    How many points do we need to be safe?
  7. Tony Xia

    Hahaa! No! I noticed this as well. I even hit rewind on the remote to go back and count the instances. Damn Sky!!!
  8. What do you drive?

    That is a nice truck! I really want to get one myself because I just prefer them to regular cars, but, I don't really have a job that requires me to use one and as such isn't a viable option for travel muhhhhhhhhh
  9. The push for the Play offs ?

    Seriously, how many points do we need to be safe? That's all I'm concerned with at the moment - none of this play-off talk!
  10. January 2017 transfer window

    Can't remember when Round joined. I thought he was here for some of the window atleast. Still, someone had to be releasing the funds for the purchases and doing the negotiating!!
  11. Tony Xia

    Does Tony have his own chant? I'd love it if the fans all just shouted Xia, Xia, Xia, and pointed each time. He'd love that I reckon. Hah.

    What actually is the deal with Hourihane? Other teams interested?
  13. Conor Hourihane

    Which I believe is an old old wooden warship from the Spanish civil war era
  14. Conor Hourihane

    I think it's: Horror-han
  15. Iceland

    How did you go about arranging this?
  16. January 2017 transfer window

    Surely we need some outgoings don't we? Our squad is huuuuuge, especially when taking those out on loan into consideration. Who's contracts are up at the end of the year?
  17. Who's got what, what was your experience in obtaining them, any advice for others? Im currently studying a degree through the OU in Computing. Also starting my ITIL foundation next month. Work also want me to get my A+ ASAP... Lots to work on!!
  18. @PompeyVillan - fair enough, you looking at other things? My role is very applications based so trying to learn about SQL etc. Not that easy!! Defo go for the CCNA if you get the chance!!
  19. Hey man, all good at the moment. I've got my ITIL foundation, starting another module at the end of the month on my degree - this one focuses on networking but isn't a Cisco cert. it allows me to take Microsoft exam 366 which is the MTA, so right at the beginning. Because of the role I am doing at the moment I need to work towards a SQL certification as well, so trying to figure that out. How's things with you?
  20. James Bree

    ....not sure I get this one Trent?
  21. Embedding YouTube

  22. Conor Hourihane

    Surely it has to be this... change the obvious word and a few others...

    People need to keep their cool though. We really cannot have people coming on here and moaning about the players (especially new ones) should we fail to get a result (Obviously this is a forum so people can do what they like, but, you get what I mean). People need to realise that actually players do need time to gel and adapt to the new environment. If we sign Hourihane and Bree, they are coming from an environment where everyone is on a massive high, and coming into a team that is a bit flat and have been struggling over the past few weeks. The remainder of this season needs to focus on getting the team playing for each other and developing a style of play that is going to get us promoted next season. We have far too much to do in order to catch up with the rest IMO. (Btw Jareth this isn't aimed at you, more of a generalisation). How how many points will see us safe in this league?
  25. James Bree

    Is this move definitely on or is it mostly speculation and wishful thinking at the moment? seems to be just Hourihane that we are trying to poach?
