What's the general concensus with the goings on today? Is anyone feeling positive?

I think the signings are encouraging, even if the transfer embargo limited what might be possible.

Tamas & Revell out, as well, which is relief to everyone.

Langston & Sam finally sorted out, but I guess only Tan & Dalman will know why it had to be done the way it was.

The 2 stooges knew all beforehand why it had to be done the way it was.

An expensive exercise given the legal fees involved, but I would be interested to know why it was so important to have Sam publically admit that he was behind Langston.

Everyone suspected this, but why suspend payments for the reason they did? Perhaps in the hope of discrediting Sam further, but to what end?

I agree it was probably to discredit Scam and his 'friends' around the periphery of the Club.
I think it has generated more positivity on and off the field and I might well have made my comeback this Saturday but I think the Six Nations will probably win until I'm more convinced.
Rusty still needs to go before I'm definitely back in the fold.

Tan has become renowned for being surprisingly fickle - he STILL won't drop his problems with Malky even afterakl the FA handled it. I really don't doubt for a minute that he cost himself thousands of pounds in legal fees just because he held a grudge he wouldn't drop - because that's exactly what he has done before.

In fairness, I think if somebody had made some racist comments about or around me I'm pretty sure that I'd want to see them through to resolution, and that I wouldn't be the bad guy in that scenario.

Try living with the Froggies if you are sensitive to racist comments.

I did get a few comments around rugby season whole there but as soon as I told them I was Welsh not English, they were recinded. Not sure if that makes it ok though. scratch

Oh yeah don't get me wrong, the racism isn't acceptable. But the obsession with the overspend, and reacting to it by wasting lots more money, was just absurd.

There's good and bad everywhere, but there is a sizeable proportion of all age groups here who are clearly anti-Brit.

Although you can make a case that racism is never justified, sometimes I feel that the Brits are their own enemy. Many make little attempt to adapt to life in France, not even bothering to learn the language. There is also a massive black economy in the trades, i.e Brits working for Brits for cash.

That said, the vast majority of Brits still put far more in to the general economy than they take out.
