    I'd go for the hand-grenade option.

    Anyone else read that Portuguese manager Pereira ( tipped to come to the PL) is currently earning £30m in China? That's obscene.

    @Tobes reckons he isn't and he's cheap enough for Everton to afford

    Has he been linked with Everton? Sounds like Silva MkII :bandit:

    Didn't Everton make Koeman the 3rd highest paid manager in order to land him? I don't think they're looking to get someone on the cheap.

    <laugh> his first "anti-City VAR decision" is that Sterling was "only an inch offside" when flagged in their 5-0 win against West Ham. Game changer.

    This really annoys me.

    We were 4 points ahead by Christmas Day - we increased it to 7 by New Year. It was never more than that after an equal number of games played.
    I know I go on about the poor standards of sports journalism, but I have no time for people who are so bad at the profession they are paid for.

    BBC used to be the gold standard. It is (or was) the go to for accurate information for many people around the world. I can't see it being taken seriously anymore with such poor quality reporting.

    I think they're still decent enough across the board, it's their sports department that is as bad as everyone else's.
    I wrote this last night on a different thread:

    I think there has been a decline across the board, the sports reporting being particularly poor. Individual reports getting players, places, scores etc wrong is plain lazy.

    Indeed.
    In the article I quoted it's not even as though the journo had a momentary brainfart - they even made up a graph illustrating it.
    Obviously got his information from an unreliable source and never bothered to check it.

    I think people on here take more care than journalists do knowing they'll get jumped on for wrong information <laugh>

    Telling a group of lads how to kick a ball ...:bandit:

    The ones showing them how it's done don't get paid so much.

    Never keen on using the word "earn" when they're getting those sort of sums. No one truly earns £30,000,000 imo. They get paid it. #pedanticasalways

    Money 'earns' interest and all it needs to do for that is exist. I get what you mean though.
