Dunno bud, but you are really good on the eye, and annoyingly rarely give the ball away.
You say 'annoyingly' but you are 8 points ahead of us, with a sparkling goal difference, and you're in the final of the league cup, so you're not in much of a position to resent our worse position :)

It's a curious thing about Tony Bloom. He is a world class poker player and he plays competitively. It's a game of skill with a bit of luck involved and the money aspect categorises it as gambling. But it's Tony's money to do as he pleases and, when he plays, it has no impact on the victims of gambling we associate with betting. Starlizard isn't a gambling company or a bookie. As far as I can tell, it provides data analysis across many areas which is used in many fields including indirectly, the betting markets among others. I'm not going to argue if others disagree, but Tony and his company appears to be a long way divorced from online betting and betting shops nor is he making fortunes at the expense of addicted gamblers. I don't think so anyway. and as others have said, he has stated that he won't have any connection with betting at the club.

We can't criticise the murderous, medieval Saudi if we haven't been there?
Nah, I'm happy being 'graceless', thanks sweetcheeks
LOL. The murderous, medieval Saudis must be quaking in their boots at the scary Albion keyboard warrior insults they've had thrown at them and Newcastle are probably reconsidering all their financial arrangements now after the terrible onslaught.

In this context the whole 'keyboard warrior' is a bit weird. This post pushes it way over the edge.

I've no doubt you will now call me a keyboard warrior for pointing this out.

I guess what you're trying to say is the term "keyboard warrior" is normally used by conservatives having a crack at the woke left's attacks on statues of Churchill, the Royal Family, Christianity and the full range of traditions and traditional institutions and you'd be right. I have used the term somewhat incorrectly. I don't know about it being "weird" but I agree there may well be better ways to label glib on-line attacks on clubs and their supporters. It was the best I could do at the time.

I'm being conciliatory here which is a rare thing. Must mean I need some sleep or a good holiday or something.

Either way, go the Albion!
