    Straq 2.0.
  2. Away to Chelsea in the next round. Great.

    Was a quality finish, only Sunderland admittedly but I'm so happy for the lad, really got his head down and worked when written off; love the crowd reaction to him.
  4. I'd have given it to Niasse if my only info was via carrier pidgeon.
  5. Oumar, can't be anyone else. Sorry DCL.

    Didn't realise Sky were doing that. Anyway, one up now, was it decent?

    In which case the company was out of order for me. nobody should lose their job for being properly ill. Heard many stories in recent years from cancer patients; some have brilliant employers who give them massive support and some have employers who'll do whatever they can to get them off the payroll.

    Can see the point you're making but it's just a bit of a grey area for me, your employer isn't your mum and under most circumstances cases like this wouldn't attract national media attention. I can't remember the tabloids going to town on Rubes when he got done for speeding for example. If it was something like wife battering or child abuse then you bin the player/employee obviously; so for me it's either a case of a sack-able offence or not. If it's not worth contract termination you let the courts decide. Did your colleague get their wages docked? I highly doubt it, in fact I wouldn't have thought it was legal. I'd have thought if it was "mutual consent" a few months on it was more likely an ongoing drink problem, or the possibility that the guy couldn't get to work efficiently without wheels.
