    Home schooling...

    What’s your lad like when in the company of animals mate? My little lad (6) finds peace with animals, it relaxes him. Its the strangest thing, but on a horse he closes his eyes as he rides because he says he can feel all the movement of the beast. Dogs too, just got him an indoor dog and it go’s absolutely everywhere with him and it helps him. He is absolutely off the scale bright on all the tests but he struggles badly with big, noisy crowds, new people and situations and harsh (sounding) instructions. He also can’t go out at play time because he go’s completely off his canister and won’t come in again. His frustration or worry then displays as anger. But, with animals, he is just a little boy again.

    My tip would be, approach everything with thought, keep relaxed (Theres no time limit on things mate) and if it ain’t working, stop and think your way round it. What works for some kids don’t work for every kid We has to ditch our pre conceptions and in a way educate ourself before we started in on the kids if that makes sense......don’t make it a battle

    Home schooling...

    My youngest is ASD, he does an hour a day of mainstream school and the rest at home. We have home schooled my other lad and one of my daughters at various times too. My daughter didn’t have a school place for 9 months when we first moved here and my eldest lad moved schools and we schooled him in the break. Some kids, wether through a disorder or just because of the nature of their character are never going to fit in the modern schooling system, too much depends on OFSTED scores and some schools don’t have the resource.....either way, it ends up a torture for all concerned. If a kid don’t fit in the box then home schooling is the way to go. Have to say, it would not have been the case with me when I was a kid mind you...I was just a little f****r with a massive chip on my shoulder, some kids are that too. However, that said, graft was my schooling and that worked just as well.

    Fury hanging up his gloves?

    I think the bloke that runs WWE knows what he is doing, he has made a billion dollars out of men pretending to fight ! That bloke is no slouch..... Mate, it’s circus.....that’s all, f**k all more to it than that.

    Well, at this precise second I’m sitting on the docks at Holyhead after driving through 300 miles of rain, it’s battering and honestly.....looking out of this windscreen is literally more exciting than watching egg chasing ! Lol

    Newsflash, every sportsman is a cash cow......that’s why you have agents, managers and promoters.

    I took my little lad to the WWE wrestling last year and let me tell you, it’s for little kids, spastics and nerds! 99.9% of the compus mentus adults in there are never, ever going to watch boxing.....ever ! I think you are way off the mark if you think it’s an attempt to promote boxing mate, totally unsuitable audiences.

    It always interesting to hear from people in the know mate, funny how your impressions can not match the reality. It sort of makes me happy to hear I was wrong about the bloke, makes you go “oh, ok fair play and good on him” Id rather think well of lads than badly.

    It will never get better because nobody wants to tell the truth......you can’t cure a tooth ache when you keep pretending it’s a cold !

    Mate, obviously it’s all impressions because I have never met Vinny Jones and dont know the bloke but I just all that “hard man” image was nonsense. He shit himself at our gaff against Julian Dicks and that’s when he had Fashnu and Wise and all that wrapped round him. I can give him a bit of fair play for letting a small bit of talent take him a long way, he made the most of it but I never saw him as an inspiration to his team mates or fans......quiet the opposite, most of the time he was a f***ing liability. Closest I ever got to Vinne Jones was the north bank at our gaff and poaching his old mans shoot in the wee small hours with my dog ! Lol Edited to add: I think as a player you don’t want or need to be liked, you need to be respected and demanding and want to win things......if you are liked, that’s a bonus.

    I’m sure they do mate but my guess, at pro level, is that as a pro they are maybe torn between being the pro and carrying out the game plan or doing what they themselves think need doing ? I just don’t know how many players are at a level where a managers says “you can just do what you thinks right and roam about”......not many I bet

    Serious question, Would you approve of the state just confronting these “communities” and demanding they sort their shit out and stop behaving like they are still in some 3rd world shithouse ? Should we as people just snub them from our society until they can stop all this shit ?

    The great thing about sport mate is that the level of expectation is only what you yourself can achieve......you can’t demand things from your team mates that you obviously can’t do yourself, attitude included. I think the key with the Adams, Keanes, Vieras, Dicks of this world is that they probably only really lost it very few times in their career but you know that if they are giving you a bollocking on the pitch then you deserve it. The media like to call them “volatile characters”.......i dont agree with that, mugs like Vinny Jones were volatile.......proper players are just intense and demanding.
