Car Dealership - legal advice (25 replies)

Small Heath Alliance 

I'm in need of some assistance from the great legal minds of SHA.

I purchased a car from a well known car dealer 3 weeks ago, who are now threatening legal action.

I called and negotiated £500 (£14,100 to £13,600) from the asking price and agreed to pay the remainder at the dealership the next day.

When he took my card for payment, a further £300 has been taken off from the price ( £13,300) , so I said nothing and left with the car. Kerching.

They started to chase/call and initially tried to argue that the V5 would be kept in their name, if the £300 was not transferred - I advised them to politely feck off as a) the car is insured and taxed in my name and b) the other half of the V5 had already been sent from the post office and was on it's way to the DVLA.

Etiquette with bad parkers (6 replies)

Small Heath Alliance 

Woman at work has parked pathetically. Pulled in diaganol over 2 spaces and didnt bother straightening up.

I made it my duty to pull in to the space next to her driver door as close as possible. It is wing mirror distance between two cars literally no chance of anybody even opening the driver door.

I had to jump out the passenger door but the girl driving this car looked the most entitled stuck up girl ever who would have no concept that a passenger door is available.

Is there a better way to get back at shit drivers...? Читать дальше...

Jota Off? (6 replies)

Small Heath Alliance 

Someone told me that someone told them that somebody told them and so on (so you know its probably a crock of sh*te) - Jota is off to Sheff Utd in the summer.

We have a "gentlemans agreement" that they will buy him off us if they don't go up this year. Nothing official, just a nod and a handshake.

Apparently Jota isn't fitting in and is cutting himself off from the team (head down, not talking to people) because he doesn't want to be here in a team performing so poorly. His agent spread the word and the club reluctantly agreed through our agent overlord. Читать дальше...

Halstenberg suffers broken hand in scoring for Leipzig

FourFourTwo.com 

They say scoring a goal is the best feeling in football. Try telling that to Marcel Halstenberg, who will spend the mid-season Bundesliga break nursing a right hand broken in three places. RB Leipzig went down 3-2 to 10-man Hertha Berlin on Sunday, the Bundesliga bowing out for 2017 with a thrilling contest at the Olympiastadion. Hertha went 3-0 up despite Jordan Torunarigha's seventh-minute dismissal, and Leipzig's fightback fell short after Halstenberg scored in the 92nd minute to set up a grandstand finish.

The Virtual Terrace • North America

Rugby League Supporters Association Online 

Over the past few weeks we have heard rumblings of contacts in north america wishing to get involved in RL.

On the face of it, it sounds great, however, we have a history of expansion without really understanding how to expand in my opnion.

So I thought I would go through some of the pros and cons of what I have heard (which is not a lot).

Firstly, Toronto are going well in 2017, whether they can make it to the promotion to SL in 2018 we shall see, but they have setup pretty steadily, I do not know the costs involved or their bottom line, how much is costing the owner and is it sustainable? Читать дальше...

Chile elects conservative billionaire ex-President Sebastian Piñera

The Week 

On Sunday, Chileans voted to give conservative former President Sebastian Piñera a new four-year term, replacing President Michelle Bachelet, who also preceded Piñera's first term (2010-2014). Piñera, a 68-year-old billionaire, beat challenger Alejandro Guillier, a center-left journalist, by a wider-than-expected 9 percentage points. Guillier congratulated Piñera and promised to lead a "constructive opposition" to Piñera's agenda of dismantling Bachelet's center-left reforms. "Chile needs dialogue and collaboration more than confrontation," Piñera said Sunday night.

After underperforming in the first round of voting in November, Piñera veered to the right politically, promising to derail a same-sex marriage bill Bachelet's government introduced in August and improve the living conditions of military officers jailed for crimes against humanity, as well as lower business taxes.

Van Gaal eyes one more job 'to spite Manchester United'

FourFourTwo.com 

Louis van Gaal will only be tempted back into management by a big club in the Premier League - "just to spite Manchester United". Van Gaal spent two years in the Old Trafford dugout, winning the FA Cup, before he was replaced by Jose Mourinho in 2016. The 66-year-old has not returned to management since, but seems to have kept an eye on the Red Devils, recently criticising the style of football utilised by his successor. The futures of Antonio Conte at Chelsea and Arsene Wenger at Arsenal appear far from secure beyond this campaign, and Van Gaal may have his eye on developments at both clubs as he seeks revenge on United.
