So this is what this "zero hours" contract means.

This is what a "Freelancer" means
Ive been on one of those "Zero hour" contract in the past while signing on. (ever wonder how theres so many out of work yet the figures went down?)
It wasn't optional people that was forced onto it was made to go to a room small room with some one that didn't give a toss in charge for 8 hours a day and do job search using what they had

Most days this was a local free news paper and on the rare occasion we got to use a computer


Ill just leave this here

The only one that actually works is Work solutions, you have to ask to be transferred to them, they give a toss about finding people work to the point they ring you up if they see something suited for you, they got me my current main job, also chased it up when I didnt hear from them

Isn't it rare that all the staff get done for doing something illegal, rather than just the boss that ordered it?

When you're trying to join a site and every username you can think of has already been claimed. I am rubbish at usernames and have no imagination for them whatsoever :roll:
Retro is a state of mind, and cares not for your puny concepts like dates and calendars.

The refereeing of the Europa Cup final last night, ref gave us nothing, oh but he booked a guy for time wasting as he was being subbed off, that'll teach him, thanks ref.

The handball thing certainly needs an overhaul.

That said, Sevilla moved up a gear in the second half just as Liverpool decided it was all over and that was the end of that. I doubt solid reffing would have made much difference really.
If it's slower than me, dumber than me and it tastes good ... tough titty.

Fair to say we absolutely bottled the second half, i actually think the worst of the refs decisions was in the first half, but I feel like we should have had a pen, if we'd gone in 2-0 up maybe things would have been different. I'm taking the defeat on the chin, but it doesn't change that the ref made some odd decisions in my opinon, even in the second half some of the fouls given against Origi and Benteke were way harsh..

Yeah the play acting for that supposed elbow was crazy. He went down like he took a full force blow, and as usual he's hold where he was not even touched.

The ref was shocking in the first half but what can you do.

We were clearly not coming back in the second half, but the dirty cheap tactics that starting to creep out to near the end to try and get as my fouls etc... was awful. Hate that part of football in general.

Klop's interview after the match was fair and the emotion he was feeling clearly showed. He will bounce the team back and with some building of the team I think he's got the potential to do great things.

Never been a big fan of salad myself, in my previous life as a meat eater or now on a plant-based diet. It does spoil very quickly unfortunately, and yea, its not particularly filling straight out of the "bag". You can get more creative with cooking/prep to make it more filling (with or without meat), but I'm guessing you're perhaps not a domesticated god :P
