I was wondering if any of you had had recourse to quote parts of the Sale of Goods Act to shops where you have bought something that has gone faulty after a relatively short time?
The bloody picture on the telly went last night (still got sound) whilst watching something. The thing's only just two years old as well. Do you think it's worth complaining to Argos where it was bought, that two years is very far from a reasonable time for something like a telly to last and either get them to repair it or replace it? I think the act states you can still argue faulty goods for six years.
Anybody else think that this season has got distressing echoes of the season Wolves went down a second successive time? At one time early that season they were in third but by the new year they were 18th. They had also appointed a manager with no experience of the Championship in the summer and was eventually sacked halfway through. For JFH read Dean Saunders?
Just looking through our list of permanent managers in the last 25 years and how they came to be at QPR. Doesn't make inspiring reading...
Ramsey - Promoted from within Redkrapp - Unattached Hughes - Unattached Warnock - C Palace (same division at the time) Hart - Unattached Magilton - Unattached Sousa - Portuguese national team coaching staff Dowie - Unattached De Canio - Unattached Gregory - Unattached Waddock - Promoted from within Holloway - Unattached Francis (2nd) - Unattached R Harford - West Brom (same division) Houston - Arsenal assistant manager Wilkins - C Palace (player) Francis - Bristol Rovers (then in the old second division)
Until JFH, Gerry Francis (1st time, 1991) was the last manager we "poached" from a team lower than us. It seems it's 2-1 in terms of success when we have poached a manager from another club (not including Houston as he was only an assistant and Wilkins was only a player at Palace). Barring probably only Holloway, it seems that when we appoint a manager who is not currently employed, they are invariably crap usually proving why they weren't in work when we appointed them.
Seems like it's from Scandinavia, circa '77ish. At times it's a slightly uncomfortable watch when you hear Dave talking several times about his future but nevertheless fascinating. Also featured are Paul who is I reckon approximately five years old (he seems to be the only child so I assume it's before 1978 when brother Neil was born). Also about 14 minutes in he is talking as PFA rep to then youth team players Dean Wilkins, Clive Allen and Peter Hucker!
It seems another world in the days when a professional footballer could live next door to you and they drove Morris Marinas and not Bentleys.
