  1. The problem we have is that he is going to be inconsistent at this stage of his career and when our only alternative is a young, injury prone non-scoring striker then we don't have the ability to change it up when it isn't happening for him. For all the good business we did in the summer, I still can't believe we went with Watkins and Davis until January.
  2. I've have a bit of knowledge of employment law through my work, however I work for a multinational company who's lawyers essentially said 'avoid making pregnant women unemployed at all costs' and the feeling I got from that is that anything like this is an employment tribunal waiting to happen. I can't see them offering much other than the statutory redundancy as I'm almost certain they are doing this to avoid SMP so they will be looking to ensure the redundancy is less than that
  3. Anyone here have much knowledge of employment law? My wife told her boss today that she's pregnant and she basically got told that they were thinking of making her redundant anyway as they going to close down part of the business (my wife does not exclusively work in that part). It all seems very dodgy but my worry is that they will get away with it as they only have 2 employees and whilst my wife is part time, the other employee works full time so they could argue that she is being selected because she can't cover the hours.
  4. To be fair, I bet when he's got her back in his hotel room he's used some absolutely filthy Snapchat filters on her.
  5. I don't know but that's some very disappointing circling skills there. I mean how am I supposed to know who Chukwuemeka is when there are 2 people in the circle? Very poor effort.
  6. Only me who thinks that looks like a really obvious photoshop then?
  7. No, if Bournemouth win and we lose they will go ahead of us on goal difference no matter what the score is.
  8. Problem is if there is a club that wants to buy him for big money then all city will do is activate the clause and then sell him on themselves. Realistically the maximum we will get is whatever the release clause is for him.
  9. Still only effective when we are the team who are dominating and in this league that's pretty much never the case. Either bring Grealish central or play Nakamba but at the moment he's just a set piece specialist.
  10. The Sky Q touchpad remote. The normal one broke so having to use this abomination now. I'd say I accidentally fast forward or rewind every 10 minutes or so. Horrendous.
  11. Have to say The Mirror and The Guardian have played this out beautifully. Only put out half the story, let them make their excuses and then don't allow the story to move on by following it up the next day.
  12. Worth pointing out that they haven't decided that the season is null and void, just that they won't be playing again. Every chance it will go down to average point per game or the table will stand as it is.
  13. So you have the same birthday as me and you live on the same road as I grew up on. Weird. As for the Rona, it's the same in Manchester, roads during the day are pretty much the same as they were before the lockdown.
  14. I couldn't even tell you how I did that. I could edit it but I think I'll leave it be.
  15. Although the numbers are clearly well underrwporfedy, It's also probably worth pointing out most of those people who have been feeling up unwell probably have another illness. If you look at the figures of people who they've tested the vast majority haven't had it.
  16. We are but nearly all the jobs are temporary and we are being inundated with applications. In my store we took on 6 temporary workers and in the first instance they were offered to friends and family of staff. We filled them within a few minutes.
  17. Does anyone know what the situation is if you find temporary employment elsewhere? My wife is going to help out for a few weeks at my workplace but obviously makes no sense to lose the protection of receiving 80% of her wages from her full time job when this is just for a few weeks.
  18. Realistically we might not see Jack in a Villa shirt again. A poor performance in a dismal game against Leicester was not how I envisaged it ending.
  19. To me it looked like Smith binned him off after that Leicester game, but given he seemed half fit and plenty of other players had similarly poor games it's one I've never understood.
  20. Really glad I'm not in the UK at the moment. All I can say is that if by some small miracle we ever rejoin I will be having a massive fireworks party and you are all invited, apart from Tony obvs
  21. People on Twitter who used to post on VillaTalk but can't be bothered anymore.
  22. Even though he screams of a Grant Holt, Simon Dawkins, Tom Carroll type of signing, there's still part of me that believes he's going to be some kind of inspired signing that will fire us to safety.
  23. I mean they spent £15.5m on him so he must be good, right? RIGHT?!
