Berm keeping a low profile today. He can be repetitive as we all know but is still a valued and sometimes entertaining poster so let's hope he don't sulk too long.

Entertaining? How?

31 Oct 2019 21:10:02
Cork He's already announced his sabbatical. Check Discussion posts.

31 Oct 2019 21:49:47
Ok George missed that mate. People do get fed up of people saying the same thing over and over though.

31 Oct 2019 22:37:38
Cork stop going on about Berm being repetitive ot makes me fed up haha.

31 Oct 2019 22:53:37
And with soooo many words, that all say the same thing.

Bermo 1 of the great posters here not afraid to say what he thinks and prepared to take the flack that goes with that. Many have gone here for a hell of a lot less. I for 1 admire his commitment to this page.

Me too all valued opinions, know one should be made to not feel welcome or share opinion.

01 Nov 2019 11:22:23
Well said Wex 👏.

01 Nov 2019 11:43:46
Same here. If a particular poster 'grinds your gears' then don't read their posts. It's supposed to be banter, honestly I think social media has made people be too easily offended. Please, any posters that have left due to being offended come back. Everyone's opinions are valid. It would be a bit boring if we all agreed on everything. ALAW?

01 Nov 2019 11:59:36
What were you saying again, danum? 😂.

01 Nov 2019 12:23:18
Virtual offence, my word, was a time only a strongly worded letter to the Times, knocked up after tiffin, would do. Are we now so fragile and insecure, or just more full of angst? Pubs are open ;) down the pints and up the Whites.

01 Nov 2019 12:27:38
Honestly do not think it is about being offended Danum. Think media has made it easier for people to get on their high horses and shout down some ones point of view if it is different to theirs. Lot do not know how to debate anymore, which by the way is about differing views being aired and talked about so others can make their own judgment. Debate now seems to about one side attacking another until the strongest wins whether they are right or wrong. BW had his opinion which to me was wrong but some of the argument he used to back it up was right, once again in my opinion. I would skip a lot of the stuff he repeated but when he started on a new thread was always intrigued. So soon we will have no difference of opinions so nothing to debate.

01 Nov 2019 14:02:25
Always liked bw. Is repetitive and almost impossible to change his opinion.
But he has logic mostly.
I think most would like him more if he dropped the kp vendetta.
You never hear me go for one player.

Agree Bielsabud, I got to meet Bermo in person whilst i was living in London got to see some of his work! he is a Talented Playwright and Actor and I found him to be a top guy with a charming and funny personality, he has a serious side and loves a debate and he really believes in his views, now I have not always agreed with everything he debated ie KP and bielsa but have always respected his opinions which is what it should be about! in my opinion he has been a longtime poster and has put up some great debate and arguments and I for one will miss his posts on here!

I think there is a level of hubris on this page that really ruins it by a groups of posters, unless you are pathologically positive where Bamford's luck is the only issue (not the player, mind you) . Then you're shouted down and basically called a 'fake fan'. Bermo loves this club, it's so clear. Yet everyone in this hubris club shouts down Bermo for his supposed hubris towards everyone else. Psychological projection at it's finest.

The personal bitching is also unbearable, which unfortunately Ed001 was guilty of the other day. Like a bunch of old miserly women, attacking people for being offended by someone else's opinion rather than poking holes in their argument. Bermo is great at poking those holes, which is why I think he ruffles a lot of people's feathers who haven't thought through their opinions properly or are just parroting someone else's opinion. You should be grateful to him for making you feel that way, opening you up to a new perspective.

This may seem like a bit of pro-Bermo propaganda but someone has to stand up for the guy for goodness' sake. Without people like him, this site will be nothing but grey NPC's wandering around droning endlessly "in bielsa we trust. bamford was so unlucky. we don't miss jansson, we have ben white. "

{Ed001's Note - give over. The problem was that Berm won't stop repeating the same things over and over on every post. That is all it is. He won't move on and it is tedious. If he would just change the record there would be no issue with him. He used to be entertaining and a great asset to the site, but now he is the one guilty of hubris, by assuming he has to reply to everything because everything is aimed at him.

I even tried just deleting some of his repetitions but he would just send the same post in again anyway.}

Ed. You cannot just expect someone who has opinions based on what they see to just "change the record". You cannot just go "well I know better so you need to change", that is hubris.

I don't think it's a coincidence that Bermo has gone on this sabbatical after you lashed on him pretty pathetically yesterday. To be frank, I think, from the facts presented by both of you, you had the legs cut from underneath you. You were cutting at him with name calling and attacking him personally. So you can give over, I'd rather have someone involved who is "tedious" than someone who resorts to insulting someone to prove that they are right.

{Ed001's Note - really? So I can't expect him to talk about something else, rather than repeating the same stuff over and over? The one with the hubris is you, and hypocritical with the launching into personal attacks and whining about personal attacks at the same time.

No it is not a coincidence, but it was far from pathetic. He was asked repeatedly to stop saying the same things over and over and move on. He drove poster after poster away, but you think you know best so whatever.

To be frank, your opinion is your own, but I really don't care if you think he cut my legs out from under me. You are clearly of the same mindset as Berm and wouldn't listen if anyone made a pertinent point anyway. So your opinion is biased and so completely irrelevant. As for cutting at him with personal insults, perhaps a check in the mirror would help you out. Calling people conceited and arrogant is not a way to make friends or make for an interesting conversation. So I am out.}

Oh dear I sing the same tune Rads out its only my opinion you don’t have to agree that your opinion, brem has his like you all have yours but at the end of the DAY with are all LEEDS fans.

01 Nov 2019 16:03:58

Not a chance I am allowing you to have a sabbatical

I hardly ever agree with you, but I don't expect you to stop saying what you think just because you have said it before.
Fact is you have a out 3 things that get your goat (KP, one up front, Rads has been crap) but on a myriad other topics that arise on this forum I have never read you slate anyone else's view

Get your a**e back on this site and show everyone the man that you are. You are an asset to this site and I don't want you transferring to Millwall Rumours (it's not bl00dy January so you can't anyway)

If you leave I will only have George and Wex to bicker with. What sort of quality of life would that be for me. C'mon man, you would do that to a dog. Get a moment, get a cuppa, and let me know who would be your perfect twin attack for Jan thro to May. Personally I fancy the loan of Gayle and twin him with Eddie. Neither is a typical centre forward but does anyone remember how good Fowler and Owen were. Or even Yorke and Cole (I am off to wash my mouth out with carbolic)

01 Nov 2019 20:42:48
Bud I agree. I was always told that you had two ears, and one mouth for a reason, so use them proportionately. The art of debate virtually died over time due to social media, and the inability to even listen to, let alone digest, someone else’s point of view. That’s my opinion anyway. (Note to self:”shut up bright! You’re wrong, ”)

02 Nov 2019 07:04:31
To be honest I think berm was a trolling Millwall supporter in disguise and was purposely trying to irritate people by hating on KP and bielsa.

02 Nov 2019 07:24:30
Mighty - Berm is Leeds through and through. I have met the guy and been on nights out with him and if you cut him in half it would say Leeds Utd. He bleeds Leeds and despite being born outside Yorkshire and not getting to all that many games he is a bigger fan than some season ticket holders. He is very opinionated and that isn’t for some but don’t take that as meaning he is a wum.
