  1. You can only beat who's put in front of you. 11 v 11 every time, much as people like to belittle the "minnows" anyone who plays international football for any country is a lot better than any of us ever were.
  2. Scored a couple for Turkey today.
  3. Theresa May tonight... "No government could give a blank cheque to commit to an outcome without knowing what it is." That's exactly what she's been trying to do for months, the hypocrisy in this debacle is never ending.
  4. Would any "bombshells" have made a blind bit of difference? He's had bombs going off all around him for three years and his supporters don't seem to remotely care. He's bomb proof.
  5. I know you don't like Gana but pretending he doesn't exist won't make him go away.
  6. Sure you're far from alone mate, unfortunately not many are big enough to acknowledge their mistake even when it's so blindingly obvious it's going to be a disaster. (Petition over 4.5 million now)
  7. Oh but we are, just look at the size of the crowds as Farage marches; puts London to shame. https://www.nottinghampost.com/gallery/nigel-farage-nottinghamshire-march-leave-2678541 I assume Boris is still in a fallout bunker somewhere waiting for it to be safe to emerge and take over the reins.
  8. Astonishing video from London today, probably a lot of bogus marchers in there though. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-politics-47678763
  9. Kepa was a totally different set of circumstances, he intentionally ignored his manager's instructions. Pickford wasn't dropped because he's an infinitely better keeper than Stek, and I still reckon he's saved us more points than he's cost us this season. He's got MOTM five time on here and is right up there in the TT player of the season race. Lucas Digne...96 André Gomes...91 Jordan Pickford...91 Richarlison...89
  10. And curiously a petition entitled "Walk away now! We voted for a No Deal Brexit" got 32,563 signatures (minus bogus ones of course). https://petition.parliament.uk/petitions/235185
  11. I don't think the petition has had quite the level of publicity, amount of campaigning or a fraction of the timescale of the referendum John, only been up for a few days. Bogus signatures? https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/technology-47668946 Shame we couldn't eliminate all the bogus promises from the referendum campaign eh?
  12. Man swallows goldfish.... https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-devon-47666629 "Coles was sentenced to a 12-month community order with 200 hours of unpaid work and five days of rehabilitation. He was also ordered to pay £300 with an £85 victim surcharge and was given a five-year ban from keeping fish." Had to laugh at that last bit. And what are they going to do in five days rehab? Group therapy with other goldfish eaters?
  13. Petition asking the government to revoke article 50 passes four million signatures. https://petition.parliament.uk/petitions/241584
  14. Solid game for England last night though he had little to do, made a decent couple of stops though. Numpty Glenn Hoddle said for one of them (shot from a cross/corner, can't recall exactly) that he was "lucky" because he was "out of position" and should have been in the centre of the goal. If he'd been in the centre of the goal he'd have likely missed it and they'd have scored, got the impression throughout that Hoddle really doesn't like him.
  15. Had a very good game tonight I agree but I think, "everything our midfield is missing" is a stretch. If he played like that more often than not then I'd go along with it but he didn't. He did and he'll not be forgiven for that wherever his ability takes him.
  16. Amazing this... https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/47631739
  17. Good to see the women's game getting on a par with the men's. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-london-47661471
  18. Always a good move that. Remember though many decades ago when drink-driving didn't carry the stigma that it (rightly) does now; my dad and my brother regularly drove well over the limit, as did I on my motorbikes. More than once I got up for work in the morning and found my bike lying down in mum's rose beds with no memory of how it got there, and she was more worried about her roses than my drinking habits! Would never drink/drive now though, and with speed limiter/cruise control I never break speed limits either. What annoys me intently is people (who I come across all the time in the lanes and villages of Devon) who do 40 mph in 50/60 limits and then carry on at 40 when they hit 20/30 limits. One minute they're annoying the hell out of you for their pedestrian pace and then they disappear into the distance; and where are the police? Doing paperwork (not that I blame them for a minute, not their fault).
  19. I can't think of a Scottish player turning out for England, possibly a few with dual qualification have understandably opted for Ireland (though I can't think of one off the top of my head). Who are we talking about?
