    Facts aren't important when you've got serious criticising to do.
  2. I completely get where you're coming from, back in our days I think it probably would lead to expulsion. It gets into the whole cause and correlation discussion but there is research out there that shows the long term damage being expelled can have on children. In America they call it the school to prison pipeline and I'm sure a recent study in Scotland found that you were 4 times more likely to end up in prison if you were expelled at some point. Rightly so, most schools nowadays do whatever it takes to make expulsion the last resort. Usually its more to do with when behaviour in school is so bad that the school can no longer provide an educational setting for that child, but as far as I know, schools need to show that they've tried to put things in place and failed before doing this. He needs to be punished and there needs to be consequences but expelling him could well lead to a downward spiral in his behaviour, then as adult he becomes a problem to society, instead of just being a very stupid child who needs to be educated about why his views are so wrong.
  3. I'm not sure what it achieves though. Yes, chances of him sending stuff like that again are slim but will it help change his views? Will it help make him a better person? Part of the school system is to ensure that when children leave they are a responsible member of society as an adult. If we're not careful, the system just ends up creating and sending a horrible person into the world, which given that his family are probably a huge part of his problem, will likely just repeat the cycle.

    I agree to some extent, but then likewise there are moments that have got us points. The fighting spirit to get last minute wins against watford and Brighton. And how many fans would have started trezeguet today for example? I think it balances it out and we are where we are. I just see nothing that makes us any different from any team down there.
  5. So pretty sure that the kid went to the school I work at. I remember him vaguely but never taught him. Horrendous messages but writing a kid off at 12 is going to do nothing but ensure that he's a horrible member of society when he becomes an adult. People are tweeting his secondary school to expel him. He needs to be dealt with by the police and educated properly.
  6. I've said on other threads that 36 points is the average required to stay up. If we win 2 more and go down that would be classic villa.

    I disagree. I'm not sure many of our players gets into either of those teams. I think we've had some really good moments but everyone can say the same, even norwich to some extent. We're not different. I just don't really get how people think we should be better than so many other teams. Of course there is a possibility but to say it should happen is creating an expectation based on very little. 3 teams have to go down and I think fans from every team bar Norwich, could expect to be ahead of us. Not sure why some think we are special.

    4 pts is huge down there. We average less than a point a game. Again, what's it based on. 4/5 more points would see us 15th. How can anyone look at our squad and injuries and think we should be higher than 5 other teams.
  9. We closed the gap to 17th. That's all we could do and all we could control today.
  10. That sucks but not end of the world

    in fairness I think the first half was very similar to others. People on the match thread were very critical and getting ready to moan at HT. The goal changed everything. I think the same would have happened if davis scores against sheff u and samatta scores against newcastle. We just haven't seen that quality to take a chance and give everyone a boost.

    Isn't that the same thing? I still don't see why we should have all these points and other teams shouldn't. What's special about us to expect that?

    he'll be a good player. One of the reasons we will be competitive in the championship.
