Replying to AlbionFan above.....

No I don't 100% unquestioned accept what is written in any Wiki...but there are references as to where it came from. I don't have the time or an army of researches working for me to dig into each and every statement. If it was complete b*ll*cks I'm sure it would have been corrected by now.

Yes I'm entitled to quote other peoples views - I put it in quotes to make sure no-one thought they were my original view.

Northern Rock were one of the worst and most notorious examples of financial mismanagement.

Ridley jumped on the theory of a stall in global warming a few years back. As the below article states (only takes 2 minutes to read - yes it's one scientists view but he has the 97% on his side), sea temperatures were rising during that same period. This decade the global surface records have shown a series of the hottest years on record.

The thing about  this is I'd be delighted to be wrong and not to have to worry about what's going to happen during the lifetime of my daughters - I hope in 25 - 50 years time we look back and say 'what a load of scare-mongering b*llo*cks that was'....but anyone who denies man's role in the planet warming or claims it's a good thing has the 97% of publishing climate scientists disagreeing with them.

Regarding replacing fossil fuels...I know there's a lot of work to do but, already all of the company Green Energy's gas and an increasing proportion of Ecotricity's gas is already 'renewable'...as well as 100% of the electricity. The gas is produced from green gas mills using either food waste or grass and garden cuttings. With serious government investment this could be scaled up pretty quickly (same applies to other governments). Green Energy and Ecotricity are not significantly more expensive, if at all,  than other companies either.

From stuff I've been reading here I was under the opinion it was an option in his contract he has chosen to activate and who can blame him given it's probably good money for 12 more months

Rob was a very close friend of mine. An absolute top lad, one of the nicest chaps you could ever possibly meet. Always laughing, smiling and loving life. Not a bad bone in him.

It would be fitting if we could have a minutes applause on the 32nd minute on Tuesday for him.

Rob was Albion through and through. He has been going down the Albion all of his life, home and away.

I live in New York now; I just booked a flight to come back for the Barnsley game to give Big Lad the send off he deserves.

Just watched his documentary on the BBC, what an up and down life,it seems mainly down.
Did you see the part when he was really hitting the bottle with his Albion scarf round his neck?
He's brought happiness and enjoyment to millions ,I for one hope he's happy now.

Silly to give him an extension - but not the worst decision in the world. If that is the worst transfer decision we make all season then I will take it, but he's clearly not good enough and on good wages too.

Really disappointed with this news. Cannot begin to see the logic in it. He has to be the luckiest man in football. To have earned several million pounds from our club given the quality he has, words fail me .

I don't like to put the lads down but HRK is terrible.

I know, I don't want to castigate someone but what on earth are we doing.

Was his last goal villa away in the league? I may be wrong but I can't recall a goal this season for sure.

He has scored 9 goals in three and a bit years! And he's 30!

At worst, any contract talks should've been put on n hold until summer and a reevaluation made then.
