We could've found the first ever Brexit advantage if there's some sort of import and supply issues relating to fireworks.

Probably not, but he is a reasonable manager who has operated under very difficult circumstances up until now at Newcastle without complaining. For their fans to turn on him in the way have is just symptomatic of their new, and unjust, sense of entitlement. And he's only human, after all - he's managing his hometown club, and yet knows he will get chopped sooner or later - that's a horrible environment to work under. That is why I have sympathy with him.
The only part of your comment iI disagree with is that the Newcastle fans sense of entitlement is in anyway new. I think I date it back to the Kevin Keegan era. Lets face it, Since Shearer retired they've been rubbish

Unfortunately there is only a few of us left from them days.

Most of the "yoot" have grown up, got careers, got married and had kids...

Panic buying toys. I thought it was just tabloid nonsense but I know people who’ve been filling their houses with plastic shit in case it runs out before Christmas. I understand people being worried about food running out but plastic toys?

Are you implying that the rest of us haven't grown up? (or maybe the opposite - the old age and mental faculties thing?)

Begs the question as to what is so special about 'growing up'....and the cliched come back on the BBS of supposedly being 'grown men'.

All of us have spent most of our lives worrying about ungrown Men (for the most part) not kicking a football very well (for the most part).

Will our last words be..'I am so glad I grew up and took life seriously'...'it really made a fecking difference'.

IMO all 'grown up' serious people tend to be utter c nuts that spend their lives damaging other people.

I was just indicating that the remaining LNC gang are forever young like Peter Pan, including your good self.

Edit: Which ties in with your post above I guess!

If I buy any alcohol from my local supermarket I have to first show ID. Annoying at first, and I've had the usual 'common sense ain't common' arguments with them, but eventually you just do it, knowing you can go home and bitch about it on the good old BBS.
Getting a beer in a bottle shop (Off licence) in the Northern Territory is really interesting. Not only do they have a security guard, but they also have police on the door at times. Then when you get to the cashier they ask for your photographic licence ID and record it..... That's what happened to us and everyone in a major supermarket in Alice Springs a couple of years back.

Then on another day same supermarket one of the local indigenous people offered my wife 50 dollars to buy him half a dozen beers. She declined, it's apparently over 5,000 AUD fine if you get caught supplying drinks to people that are banned from drinking up there and potentially a 6 month jail term.

Maybe.

Tends to be my experience.

There isn't a single regular BBSer that would be on my 'broad and absurd generialisation'.

FWIW the people I refer to would look to score a few office political points by complaining to one's boss about a BBSer spending any time whatsoever on the BBS - even having the window open.

I suspect 'rational' flew out of your head more or less the day the pandemic started. I am so good at this shite, I can even timestamp crap like this.

Remember to save your reply for when you are not on the client's dollar.

The only dollar I am ever on - and have been for some 20 years - is my own. I just mention that because it was the last nonsense in your post ; I could have whupped any of the prior paragraphs with my hand tied behind me.
