  1. Irreverentad's Relationship Advice Thread

    Hey @lapal_fan thanks for the honest reply. I read your reply, and it did actually hit home about selfishness and well I guess I cant argue with your post at all. Respect your opinion though. I have been a bit blinkered by the last few weeks, this sort of thing I have never been part of before. I'm not sure how it is going to play out. nobody I know has given me both barrels like you did, a different take on things and I guess I needed that. Cheers, in a way. @Ingram85 yes it does to me, I have jumped the gun too soon, it just happened but we both wanted it to. The bad news is, you're going to hell with me, but you'll just burn a little, i'll get ass-pokered with a trident for eternity. Still though I get what you mean at first the togetherness and hand holding. The rest didn't come instantly after but headed that way almost destined. Soulmates, truly. In this month, i got to know someone who i waited my whole life to meet and not being dismissive there. Nope . But i fully believe it and sensed this well before i found out for myself. I hear you, could be bull. Could be being used. The discussions leading up to the acts, and the line we were consciously on the verge of crossing also showed me she hadn't done this before. anyway Thanks Brommy, regarding potential custody, and how it works. I have dated single mums in the past and am fine with kids, haven't any of my own. If, it actually blossoms, and if, two big ifs so far i guess with low chances of fruition, then i would totally personally and financially be willing to do whatever is necessary. But anyway thanks. Thanks Chris, again honesty and both barrels. Respected opinion as ever. This is weird but my sort of close knit group of mates haven't said this sort of thing except be careful... not laddish "waheys" or anything just be careful. My bubble isn't burst by the comments, but i am sort of taking my head out the clouds and looking below. and feeling a bit of a c word but despite that, as daft as this is, i kind of wished i had met her ten years ago, but as it is weve met now. We have already had the discussion about the future and their breaking up. I know that is sh-- for the other guy, i have been selfish. Its not even me acting from low self esteem or anything like that, its just if i met her in any other way id have felt the same. But hey. What you say about the regularities of parenthood, all of which are alien to me about the practiclaties of their kids and stuff, that is something i haven't given much thought to but we have had discussions in this regard. @a m ole Thanks bud. yeah we have had all the serious conversations and pretty much did right near the crossing the line. I mean real in depth stuff right down to the small details and so forth. I haven't given an ultimatum but ill keep an eye on it. It has been an absolutely magical whirlwind of a month with no sign of any spark fading. I know novelty, this isn't that. Despite the infidelity, which is bad basis for any potential relationship to start... i can get past that and actually trust. But i do hear you and if i am to continue to be sensible about it. and considerate. Awkward timing as they are moving house and have been in that pipeline for over a year with this n that collapsing again and again within their chain but all going through soon. So that, is double C word on me, for the timing of my entering their lives in this matter. @djdabush thanks - i will take a step back. last paragraph there is key. I'll sort of carry on the way we are going, its started and underway afterall. but not get carried away and like Brommy says too , about being careful. I will ANYWAY. Listen lads, thanks for taking the time to read and reply. I am glad i posted it as of all places, the internet, ive come away with some different thoughts ranging from what a C word i have been, but now its underway, to be mindful of authenticity i guess, and as said since its underway... to not totally fk things up. For the record im an all round nice guy not a C word to anyone, but can see ive come across as one to this husband and the kids. Seriously though, thanks. Ages ago, i said i would post up o this thread when i actually got my arse in gear to join a dating site, all the above in original post happened literally the week i uploaded profile blurb and ill continue with that, but just in case. I'll not post updates on this affair (which in my mind i guess ive been blocking as a definition for what this is) but until anything else that's all it is. still again cheers all the best. kick off time 3pm

    Amen brother. Have tried champions league winner have tried promotion specialist all before and etc but Potter is a progressive project manager who undeniably has a gift that could benefit us. Fed up of managerial merry go round. Could be the next (poor mans) ferguson. Just need chance at right club. But yeah congrats again to OStersunds!
  3. Irreverentad's Relationship Advice Thread

    Been offline now for the best part of a month. I said months ago, when I fully move into new place new county will join online dating. Did so. Also well good chats some decent women too, genuinely looking for a relationship I'm not just looking to a bunk up. Rifht forget that. Here's the deal. Am totally smitten with a quite senior staff member who is entirely unrelated to our dept. She smitten too. We have been absolutely inseparable for a month. Is messed up. Me I'm single no kids. She's married, two kids, husband retired in his thirties the c--- so is basically a house husband. Min the space of that month forget the boning, which has been incredible, but are actual soul mates. Not saying that cluelessly. Genuinely are. Same everything. Is crazy. Right so you're thinking she will cheat on you that's how the relationship started. I did perform some top notch "game" originally despite the most ridiculous opener but things are at a serious level now. Sorry for long post. My mates reckon she's using me which I deny. Literally inseparable. What's app chats literally all night for days. Finding ways to book fake meetings. Hotels at lunch and going there after work. You name it. Is red hot. I've been in casual things before never like this. So irs on the verge of becoming something else. Dunno what to think. Everyone in the dating site just doesn't add up anywhere near her sum. Actually get annoyed by the messages. So yeah what's messed up is they're about to move in two weeks to some badass house. She wants to leave him, they haven't slept in the same bed for months and intimately for longer. She 40 he slightly older. Shes concerned that if she waits , she will lose her two kids as he is the primary carer or something she called it plus he's well off and all this n that. Don't get me wrong her wage is double mine easily. But yeah not sure if I'm gonna get f'd over or not. Doesn't feel it. Feels so real. So yeah just throwing that one out there. Anyone ever been in something like this and it's actually turned out well? Or always a going back to the husband thing? Her marriage is dead except he's a great dad that's it. Hey have no connection, no intimacy and she makes all the effort. Mates say stop any emotional investment further I say bring it on. Anyway yeah sorry for long post

    Hi BP board. I have a suggestion. Why don't we keep Brommapojkarna as our name. This will save on a rebranding exercise and the related expense, effort and diluting of our identity. For the women's team why don't we simply branch off the women's team as BrommaFlickor. This way there is appropriate gender recognition on a par with the men's team. This will be less expensive and deliver the objective appropriately. We will then have unity and equality.
  5. NASCAR Heat Evolution 2

    Yeeeeeeeeeeehaaaaaaaaaaw It scores about 70-80% depending upon the review site but I got it as soon as it was downloadable off PSN ( £39.99 ). Been playing for a couple of days now, loving it. Features the trucks, Xfinity and of course the Cup series. Won't do a review but google is your friend. Very enjoyable indeed. I don't buy many games but I'm thoroughly happy with this one especially career mode. It came out on Thursday I think, physical copies only by import at this moment but as said is available on PSN not sure when Euro release is. I'm giving it an 8/10. Bonus, that you get to smash Danica's rear end in, if you want. Ooooh la la British redneck, signing off.
  6. Let's check in with Olof (Swedish Football)

    I dropped a mention in the Next Manager thread a few days ago. Someone clearly who is loyal, a project manager with the vision and drive to achieve continuous improvement and beyond expectations at that... and above all a superb manager. Regardless of it "just being in the Swedish leagues" that doesn't matter, the standalone achievements of him and his team whether it is Ostersunds or The Queens Head Sunday League team show he has plenty in his locker. Someone will snap him up. One of those coaches maybe who if given his chance say at a Chanpionship or League One club, would come in, work with the squad, not demand so much money to spend and get the best out of the squad, install ambition, work ethic, togetherness. I know a team that needs those qualities.... No doubt most have never heard of Mr Potter or even Ostersunds which is fair enough... but the VT Swedish League fans know. Hats off, to the inducted.
  7. Graham Taylor

    terrible reading that. Dunno what to say, it's just shameful and disgusting and that guy is probably one of many who were abused
  8. Next Aston Villa Manager

    Still think this above. Some will say it is too soon, his CV is too light. I can totally understand and respect that opinion. The above is mine I stand by it. Time for a younger candidate effectively with a progressive, problem solving attitude. Not just short termism but an appointment that combines the now / the future in one. Also again, light on CV maybe. But in the football industry over the years there are many success stories of plucking an up and coming manager from a lesser side or division and benefitting from their ethos and (unproven at that point) ability. Which brings me to suggest Graham Potter of Ostersunds as a second choice for me. I'm sure many will not have heard of him but to summarise his candidacy in one sentence: took a shit team, continually improving the club as they rose through the divisions, winning recognition to the point they are getting scalps in European football repeatedly against all odds. Someone at some point will snap him up and they'll prosper. Same with King OLof. So Potter as second but Mellberg as first choice. Progressive, young candidates that are the MIRROR OPPOSITE OF BRUCE. The opposite of Bruce would be just what the doctor ordered and couldn't be any worse at all than our current "manager". Plus they wouldn't come in and demand money to spend, they'd form a team from our current stock, build an ethos and identity and I'm sure get results. At present, we have no ethos nor identity nor.... the results. Night VT.
  9. Next Aston Villa Manager

    Lazy of them to leave Woy Hodgson as a backable bet after he has taken Palace job. But from that list I'm surprised they have Terry the outright favourite. Unless it's just baiting. Probably is. The house always wins I guess. On this thread a while back I sounded out King Olof of Sweden , I still think that. Just my opinion.

    Tony! You know it makes sense!
  11. Next Aston Villa Manager

    Hope it's not against rules to post betting info. Sorry if so. But times like this I want a feel for who the bookies think is amongst the light at the end of the tunnel.
  12. Let's check in with Olof (Swedish Football)

    DIF are my Swedish team and their form this season is kind of shocking. Almost overachieving (especially with a manager that used to be a full time hairdresser at the helm ) . That tifo display is pretty funny has to be said. I take it that's Blomqvist at the front and Andersson behind? You see the thought, preparation, crowd-funding behind it, and the direct jab that it is and have to admire it. At Villa Park we get the crest / big shirt passed through a shame this doesnt catch on here. so hats off to Swedish League and their fans for that passion.
  13. 17/18 Promotion Charge

    And after a break too, in which time they've had all that time to prep on working to a "plan" on what to do in the Brentford game to finish convincingly having beaten an inferior team for three points. Did I say "plan" ?? What a massive failure. Again. Despite Bruce still being here like a turd that won't flush, I was really looking forward to today just to get our fixtures going again and yet again, points dropped and alarm bells ringing. Quite simply if we cannot beat Brentford, at home, after a break with all that prep time, we have little hope at promotion, no signs of ever producing the required manner or consistency of a promotion-chasing team. Rest In Pieces - here lies Aston Villa's 2017/2018 "promotion charge"
  14. Pre-Match Thread

    long break over better squad than brentford And an urgent need to start climbing the table and gain consistency .....so..... NO EXCUSES, three points and a very convincing win is a must from this tie. Come on boys
  15. Football Manager 2018

    It pains me to agree with TrentVilla. FM has had a hold over me since secondary school back when I X copied the first ever one on the Amiga I have had every one every year since. Kind of weird to think come release day I won't be there. Has always been a ritual for me to hermit up that very weekend , an annual event. Literally sat playing in the training gear for whatever club I would manage real geeky stuff I confess. Have confessed that before in prev FM thread. I consider myself an FM veteran then. Not an FM know it all, just an absolute fan. However , my game time has lessened recently and so I'm out of the FM pattern. Writing this, feels weird. Almost like I'm planning to dump a girlfriend. That's what FM sometimes is in a way! The time , the excuses. Anyway. So yeah I just read this post and I agree. I could think later in the year sod it and give in but... I've already decided I'm borderline giving it a miss. If I get the urge , I have unfinished business on FM2017 in two saves anyway. That, once you're in about 2030 etc and real players are virtually all retired then a new version won't grab me. For the first time it'll seem like a "data disk" if anyone remembers that phrase. And then it'll only be the new features that raise one of my eyebrows. I'll pop back in the thread when it's out and no doubt get jealous reading the posts but I dunno it feels weird breaking literally the habit of a lifetime. Without doubt, year on year though, that 30 quids spent is absolutely incredible value for the money and so rewarding. This isn't going to be an amicable break up. No tears but definitely a broken heart.
