1966 and that era players were paid a few Quid a week and played with pride... heavy boots and a heavy leather ball...To score from 20 yards in those conditions like Bobby Charlton often did was a joy to see..
The game now is so much easier to play with lighter boots and a lighter ball.. Top pitches are not mud baths now after heavy rain.... Sadly the results and bad play has not got better in the past 10 years... it not a game anymore in the prem and pressure to win is for all to see.. encouraging dives and bad tackle fouls.. and fake injury with no contact is becoming the new art of.. playing the ref... and with TV replays should be used as a witness to the growing art of deception that is exposed every week and never used to fine a player after the match to stop it. Bringing the game into disrepute seems to be excepted if TV evidence highlighted by TV pundits every week is not used by the FA.... to me a 3 match Red card ban is out dated and should now be a 5 match ban .. it may well stop some of the cheating and bad play.. with key players maybe out longer... The art of good Tackling and Dribbling may return.. with the skills seen years ago in the harder for mentioned conditions.....
If you are multi millionaire are in 5 years ..the passion and pride in the national side is often not there for all to see... some match passes are diabolical.. and shooting 10 feet over the bar is not a high paid professional performance to me... If a Bow man in archery missing the target enough he will soon be history... .. does no apply it seems to players not hitting the target with poor consistency.. the game is simple enough at least hit the ball in the direction of the target... not 10 feet wide or 10 high... ....
But there you are to me it is now just a game to watch on TV .. and switch off when over.. do not need the all the waffle about afterwards.. does not change or make play better...and TV pundits get paid 250k plus to talk about what you have just seen... .. I can do that millions are probably saying...
A great game is rare today .. but so good when you see one...and I then really appreciate it by all concerned with individual skills and good fair play from all....... great when it all comes together...
Credit Suisse has taken yet another hit over its ongoing US tax probe which pushed its final-quarter results firmly into the red. At the same time the bank, which employs 7500 people in London, revealed that its chief executive Brady Dougan's pay rose by 26% ...George Osborne defended his Budget on Thursday against charges that it was anti-saving and would not help the rebalancing of the UK economy, saying that any recovery needed to start with consumption. . LONDON (Reuters) - Independence could burden Scottish companies with more than 1 billion pounds of extra costs, a report commissioned by local engineering firm Weir Group said on Thursday, adding fuel to the business case against a split. . nice pay rise , interesting wording from Osborne , scare tactics still being tried for scots vote. lol
Apologies accepted.............. Killie won last week away from home.............. and now announced 2 weeks ago, 9.4 million debt paid off,,,,,,,, debt free now............ surely on the up now........ i always look on the bright side....
They had genuine world class players in 1966 doubtful if they have any now . Think I would struggle to name a world class British player , never mind an English one . Strange when you consider how many there were in the past .
With the troubles at Rangers Celtic is presently the only Scottish club with any level of European capability but I must add that as the English Premiership becomes ever more competitive while Celtic have relatively mediocre opposition (Sorry Traveller!) the gap must get greater. Maybe in another two or three years they will have Rangers back in their league but that may be a question.
£6 is more realistic but still unlikely in the short term . As things stand and that could change , three things need to happen .IMHO 1. ...They need to buy back the DAS share and restore dividends . 2 . ..HMG have to reduce their holding . 3 . ..The economy both here and in Europe , our main trading partner , have to show signs of real improvement . Could be a while yet, if you don'y need the money ,stick them in the bottom drawer.
It is impossible and unhelpful to say or even speculate usefully. The sp won't move in a straight line so can't be extrapolated mathematically. You will obviously be aware that the sp has been sub- 400p for practically all of the period from 2008. The effects of changes to economic and company- related variables are exaggerated for this share and so we see large swings in sp that might not occur for other large companies. This exaggeration stems largely from the fact it is 80- odd percent government owned and needs to overcome a range of obstacles before it can be seen to operate and perform like a normal company might. Additionally, there are no dividends and so sp growth is anaemic and realistically the only way to get a return from this company in the short term is to trade on volatility. Until the structural obstacles are overcome, the government support is removed and dividends are restored, there is simply no way of telling when this share might get to 470p let alone 600p. Outside of all of that, the premise of your question is flawed: if anyone could really know the point at which any sp might get to any level, they’d sell their house and everything they owned and pile in. I hope that helps.
