Implying someone's a paedo, poor form that 

It was a clearly a joke about dreadful magazine covers. I don’t think he’s a paedo. I don’t even know who the thread is about. I think it’s somebody’s mate. Apologies if the joke wasn't obvious. Mods feel free to delete my post.

Apologising is nonce behaviour.

Holiday blaggards.

 

Was looking for a cottage (not much point now) and saw one in Wales which was basically a terraced house. Basicslly you just rent your house out and call it a cottage. 

 

Some on there look like converted garages, and not very well converted.

Mufti day. For those of you who don’t have kids, this is a day when you don’t have to wear uniform and pay a £ for the privilege. Our little girl is quite self conscious about her looks and doesn’t like to wear dresses, skirts etc as she is a little tomboy with 2 brothers. She gets very stressed about mufti day and massively prefers the anonymity of school uniform. We had a mufti day today and she was in tears again because the other girls tease her for not wearing “girlie” clothes.  Why can’t the fucking teachers just let the kids wear the school uniform and not provide fuel for bullies.

Agree with this mate, the kids have enough stress!

Agreed. Plus you have kids from poor families going into school in crappy clothes which again singles them out for name calling/embarrassment because other kids have the latest clobber on.

Exactly. Kids getting bullied for not having designer gear, trainers or as with ours “looking like a boy”. Every parent knows this, why are the teachers so fucking dumb.

Separated parents being cunts and using the kids to point score against each other.
 

Especially over Chr*stm*s plans. 

To go further, anyone using their child as a weapon against the other parent should fucking hang. How dare you bolster your pathetic ego and self esteem by ruining even a day of your kid's life, you sorry cunt.

'Mufti day?' I've never heard it called that before. It was simply 'own clothes day' when my kids were at school. That was about 15 years ago now though.

I went to a secondary school where we didn't have to wear a uniform, there was occasional bullying about clothes but then my mates who went to the local uniformed school reckoned there was bullying for the kids with cheaper blazers, coats and shoes anyway. We also called our teachers by their first names. There was a University campus style culture and it was nice to feel treated as a grown up. Of course a change in leadership meant uniforms, surnames and a big Trump style fence was put all around the school. To make it like every other fucking school in the country. Somehow, this hasn't lead to the "improved discipline" promised. 

 

Uniforms, at least in their most common form are pretty ridiculous. They are more formal than the majority of their parent's working attire, uncomfortable and impractical. They are also expensive and then there is all the ironing.

 

As much as I am against them, I do think parents and students should have the choice to go to schools that require them, but so should those who think they are shite. 

 

Do any of your kids have a relatively informal uniform with polo shirts or something? That I could cope with.

We have polo shirts. But only on Wednesday, during polo.

Fuck me. 

 

I had an offer accepted on a house in fucking June and have yet to have a moving date. Top of the chain is doing it themselves without an agent, so take for fucking ever to get any forms returned. 

 

The house we're selling was bought from a first time buyer scheme so we knew there would be some additional fees as there was a small 2nd mortgage along side the main one. On my first email to our solicitors I mentioned this and have chased them to sort it as it's the kind of thing that can hold everything up. In August they sent me a list of fees from the schemes solicitors to pay to resolve this. About £1 and then another £400 in fees. Fair enough, that's life. I offered to pay to get it sorted. No no, not needed Mr Dangerously that will just be added to your fees. 

 

Today I get an email saying it's not sorted yet and they're waiting on a list of fees from the schemes solicitors that I need to pay straight away. I've just sent over the list of fees that Ive had since August and my offer to pay there and then. 

 

Every step is a fight. Everyone is going half arsed on this and I'm having to use my whole arse, plus another half of an arse to keep them on track. It's a fucking scam considering the fees they'll be charging me at the end of all this, and the retaining fee to get them on board.

Was going to say, if you're going to get bullied for anything where I went it would have been calling it "mufti".

Never heard of it, sounds like a Muslim cleric, what's it short for? It was always mischief night as kids. 

You've hit the nail on the head there slippy. From google:

 

"It was what was worn by an Islamic scholar, AKA, a Mufti. Mufti is an Arabic term, and it came to be slang to refer to the off-duty officers not being in uniform, before eventually becoming the official name for no-uniform days in Australia and a few other countries."

    • Yes, couldn't name John Mclaughlin. 
    • I might be completely off here but I always got the impression Lampard and Terry didn’t really like Mourinho in a similar way Carragher and Gerrard didn’t particularly like Benitez probably because it’s a lot harder to enjoy playing for negative shithouse managers.  The difference between the two situations was that there were plenty of rumours of Carragher and Gerrard not liking him in their playing days and playing a part in getting him out but since they’ve retired they’ve been up his arse. There was never anything like that at Chelsea but you get the feeling since Lampard and Terry retired that neither are or were particularly found of Mourinho and don’t speak to him either.

Liverpool fans may agree with their captain when you look at the stats. Jurgen Klopp’s side have had more goals disallowed by VAR than any other Premier League team in the 2020-21 season so far. The poll shows just 28% of Liverpool fans believe VAR is being applied consistently, as do 31% of Manchester United fans, compared to 39% of Arsenal and Chelsea fans. And just a quarter of Liverpool fans feel VAR has made football more exciting.  The FA Cup third-round tie between Brighton and Crystal Palace on 8 January 2018 was the first domestic game to use VAR, and it was subsequently used in one Carabao Cup semi-final and the Carabao Cup final between Arsenal and Manchester City. The Premier League introduced the technology for the 2019-20 season. In July of this year, Fifa took full control of VAR from the sport’s lawmakers, the International Football Association Board (Ifab). Since then, there has been an increase in referees using pitch-side monitors for goals, red cards and penalty decisions. VAR continues to rule on factual decisions and advise on matters of subjectivity. Premier League fans still to be convinced Scottish football authorities have discussed introducing VAR, but the technology has not yet been used in professional league football there. VAR was introduced in the German Bundesliga and Italy’s Serie A in 2017 and Spain’s top flight La Liga and the French Ligue 1 in 2018. As with those European leagues, changes have been made in England to try to adapt and improve the system. But the poll showed more than half (51%) of Premier League fans feel VAR is applied inconsistently. However, Premier League chief executive Richard Masters said earlier this year that VAR was delivering on the “principal reason” for its introduction in improving the accuracy of decision-making. “In key match incidents we are up to 94% accuracy with officials, 97% with their assistants, so we are seeing an impact on results and a positive impact on the league table,” he said. What they say about VAR Former Manchester United defender and Sky Sports pundit Gary Neville: “[Referees] look like they have been programmed like robots. They are briefed like mad, they are programmed to the nth degree, they are frightened to death.” Tottenham manager Jose Mourinho: “We’re going in a direction that’s really bad for the beautiful game, the game that everybody fell in love with.” Former Tottenham and Newcastle midfielder and Match of the Day pundit Jermaine Jenas: “The players and managers have been unbelievable in mentally getting over these hurdles that VAR has thrown at them. It’s supposed to help the game, and it’s making it far worse.” Savanta ComRes interviewed 5,476 UK adults aged 18+ online between 20 and 24 November 2020, 2,100 of whom qualified as football fans for the purpose of our survey according to Savanta-gathered data on football fans and their demographic profile. Data were weighted to be demographically representative of UK adults 18+ by age, gender, region and social grade. Savanta ComRes is a member of the British Polling Council and abides by its rules. The full poll is published here       “I’d rather play without it.” “Ruining the game.” “I don’t know the rules any more.” The video assistant referee (VAR) was brought in to improve football. But Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson, Aston Villa midfielder Jack Grealish and Manchester City’s Kevin de Bruyne have all spoken out about controversial decisions made by VAR recently. And it seems football fans are also less than convinced by VAR in its second full season in use in English football. In a poll for BBC Sport, only a third of football fans across the UK said they believe VAR has made football better. The poll of 2,100 fans, carried out by Savanta ComRes, shows that while 30% of fans think it has improved the game, 44% of fans actually think it hasmade football worse. While most fans are now given the option of seeing VAR decisions on screen – whether in the stadium on watching on TV – almost half of fans said they believe the introduction of VAR has made football less exciting. The poll also shows: 36% of supporters aged 18-34 believe VAR has made football better, compared with 29% of fans aged 55 and over. 59% of fans aged 55 and over said VAR is making football worse. Arsenal fans (44%) are more likely to believe that VAR has made football better, while 37% of Chelsea fans, 34% of Liverpool fans and 32% of Manchester United fans felt it had improved the game. Younger fans are split on whether VAR is being applied consistently (35%) or inconsistently (33%) by referees. Controversial VAR decisions West Ham v Aston Villa, 30 November – Villa manager Dean Smith said VAR “frustrates everyone but there’s nothing we can do about it” after Ollie Watkins’ late strike was ruled out for offside because of the position of his arm  Manchester United v West Brom, 21 November – “I’m very disappointed with the decisions from the referee,” said Baggies manager Slaven Bilic after referee David Coote reversed a penalty decision, ruling Bruno Fernandes had touched the ball in a challenge on Conor Gallagher Crystal Palace v Leeds United, 7 November – Patrick Bamford said VAR is “ruining football” after his equaliser for Leeds is ruled out because his outstretched, pointing arm is offside Everton v Liverpool, 17 October – Reds manager Jurgen Klopp said he “doesn’t understand these decisions” after VAR fails to review a challenge from Jordan Pickford that injured Virgil van Dijk, while Jordan Henderson’s late goal was ruled out for offside against Sadio Mane

That's right, she gets in the car and I go "Hi Rihanna, it's lashing down out there. Did you not bring an umbrella-ella-ella-eh-eh-eh"   Rihanna laughed a little awkwardly while Adrianna sat there and fumed. I have no regrets.'     And nor should you have, it's what any self-respecting dad would do.
