Not really. The previous owners understood what the club meant to the city and its fans.
Are you sure? From the Independent - March 1998
"Three days earlier, a tabloid newspaper had reported that Mr Shepherd, and his vice-chairman Doug Hall, had luridly boasted to an undercover reporter of their sexual exploits with prostitutes in brothels around the world, and abused the club's followers. They also allegedly described Newcastle women as "dogs", insulted the club's star players and mocked the fans who paid pounds 50 for replica shirts which they claimed cost pounds 5 to make."
And they made a profit of £150m out of NUFC for their time as owners.
Better than nothing, but little more than walking pace.
It really shows how woefully under prepared you were for Staffs 70.3. Get that Olympic distance event under your belt and then re-evaluate your long term plans and training, otherwise we'll be reading the same thing in another year's time.
I bet I get told off now for contemplating going training AFTER I've had a meal. Must see if I can squeeze one out first. If I'm unlucky all I'll do is progress the daisy chain through the system and make a problem more likely.
I was going to - but you seem to be so happy doing it your way.
Basically you are saying that only people without any bowel issues can go for a run. If they have bowel issue they should become obese, diabetic and become a drain on your society.
I'm so glad you aren't in charge.
I'm sure the OP would prefer not to dash off the course, it must wreck his splits. But I give him credit for persevering. With some good fortune his issue may pass.
I went through a phase of having to go on virtually every morning run, despite having already been. It went away - I never changed my diet either before it started or before it stopped.
It does seem to be your standards versus everyone else in the thread. Maybe you are too posh for this thread.
May you never get caught short
(Wait till he finds the thread on peeing on the bike deliberately to save time in an IM)
Again you seem to struggle to understand.
As I said - If I found i started needing the toilet mid run, I would have to alter my route to take that into account. I'm sure many others would do the same.
If the OP needs a shit half way round his short run, he could do the same, or he could change his diet to see if it helped or at the very least clean up his mess (Presumably most responsible dog owners clear up after their pet -is this any different.?). There are ways round every problem.
Blaming the nation's obesity and diabetes problem on incontinent runners is a strange one as is the idea that not wanting to shit outside counts as posh.
