    I didn't see him there... I am not sure who you are trying to convince. I haven't seen him at the Ricoh either.

    If you like drinking tea and love anything chocolate. Bite a bit off both ends of a Penguin biscuit, and dip one end in your cuppa and suck the tea up through the biscuit..Lush!

    Are you asking him or telling?

    Asking, hence the question mark at the end.

    If you were asking, you would have said IS CCFC leaking things to you.... NOT It's(It is).. That suggests you are telling him.

    If I was telling him it wouldn't have been a question.

    Put yourself in TF position...& given his historical attitude to fans, I would think that not having fans talking & joking around with him...just leaving him alone, is exactly what he would prefer

    You aren't the best with question marks to be fair Nick.

    You've "I'm Ron Burgundy'd?" hundreds of times.

    I'm sure to God, you make comments like this, sit back, and wait for the shit storm on purpose. Now I personally have not seen anyone post on here saying that. if you accuse anyone show proof, if you do I will always apologise(As I have done in the past)

    I think that is very naive personally.

    Very doubtful that even in isolated cases that might have been reported (can't think of any tbh) owners leave due to fan pressure. If they are under pressure & a sound offer comes in they may or may not decided to accept it. Fan pressure would come well down the list of factors influencing the decision

    If I was asking I'd have put a question mark to show it was a question, if I was telling him I wouldn't.

    ie.

    "Come to the shop"
    "Come to the shop?"

    Granted, it could be "I think you should come to the shop." and "Will you please come to the shop?" but the question mark shows the context.

    Is that a half hearted attempt at a apology then Nick, or are you still doing a Grenduffy?

    You can word a question like a statement, similarly you can make a statement by utilising a rhetorical question. Now, ABOUT THOSE PREGNANT FISH AND CHOCOLATE BARS OR LITERALLY ANYTHING ELSE

    When you've seen him have you approached him and made him feel uncomfortable or are you just expecting others to do it?

    Daim bars are not banned mate. The Harry Enfield advert was banned not the bar. still buy them in most retail outlets and especially in Ikea.

    I mean those giant Cadbury bars you used to get around Christmas that were the size of a board game. One of those would last me right through to New Year

    perhaps Hoffman should offer one as part of his next bid, might be the deal clincher.

    You can't control everyone, people will talk to whoever they want. At the end of the day we all want him out.

    I saw him a few times while there, never had the urge to punch him in the face though, perhaps that says a lot about me and your question says a lot about you?

    Nick says...
    Reminds me of the whole thing from Sixfields.

    "I walked past and saw people talking to him and it made me sick, if I ever saw him I'd punch him in the face"

    Erm, you have just walked past him...



    Try reading posts mate... I was re-iterating Nick's post... Says a lot about you eh?

    So, talking and laughing with Fisher is "sucking up" in your opinion? Ok then.
