  1. Richarlison missed an open goal header today. Edge of 6 yard box, no pressure, free header, and he tamely headed it so that the keeper gathered it easily.
  2. BBC live text gave an interesting stat. Everton have never come from behind and won under Silva. That stat actually says a lot. No heart, no fight and there have been plenty examples of that recently.
  3. At least we've got the Rugby World Cup to take our minds of it.
  4. The Blades haven't had a single shot on goal - and are winning 1 - 0.
  5. Mike, it may, or it may not. My point is, to give all the credit to the EU is nonsense. The easiest activity on this planet is to spend other peoples hard earned money.
  6. The regeneration money cycle is: UK taxpayers - UK government - EU - chunk returned to UK. ie its our own money returned.
  7. There are multiple strains of flu and the flu-jab doesn't cover them all, just most. Getting the jab increases the odds.
  8. Its already started to explode in Bettel's face. A number of EU member states highly critical. Maybe the EU will book him on a diplomacy course.
  9. Had a bit of ear trouble (never had it before) on Sunday. Had a busy Monday so went to the Doc's today. Asked for the duty Doctor (urgent appointments) and expected something tomorrow. It was 10.30 when I got there and they gave me an 11.00 appointment. The Doc even gave me my flu jab while I was there. Result!
  10. Our non-decent spinner got 4 for 49. He's not bad with the bat either.
  11. The risk to London as the Financial Capital is more at risk if we stay in the EU. France and Germany have had their eyes on this for years. If we remain, I can see the EU coming up with a 'Common Financial Services Policy' much like the Common Agricultural Policy and the Common Fisheries Policy. We will then be instructed to transfer a chunk of these services to Paris and :Frankfurt. And just as the Fisheries Policy decimated our fishing industry, you can bet the City will come out of it not very well. If we leave, then at least we can fight it.
  12. Steve, please read my posts more carefully. I said 'Macron' is desperate for us to go - not 'France'. Now that Merkel is on the way out, Macron thinks he is going to be top-dog in the EU. He doesn't want the UK in there queering his pitch. His ambition is far more important than 'trade'. Having said that, why should trade suffer either way? It will only suffer if the EU whack tariffs on everything.
  13. Steve, I can't believe you just posted that. First, Germany don't want us to leave but France do. Macron is desperate for us to go. Second, the EU are already changing the law on veto's. It is not convenient for the dictatorship. The EU is proposing a change to move to majority voting (which means Germany and France) in certain areas. How long before it covers all areas? First crack in the dam.
  14. To quote Chac, RPG The FT is Remainercast, so take it with a pinch of salt.
  15. The worst possible scenario. We lose, but DCL scores, which means Silva wlll pick him for the next dozen games.
  16. Chac, I think he is outgunned by Merkel and Macron. It doesn't matter what the EU rules say, if Germany and France want it, it will happen. The rules will change.
  17. Reported in the Independent (November 2018) Merkel, addressing the European Parliament said she supported a 'real, true' European Army. Macron in favour too. Didn't look at it, but I think there is also a video of Merkel's address. Also quotes the EU Commission as saying they are delighted that the leaders of France and Germany have backed the creation of a 'real' EU Army.
  18. Steve, I know, my question was rhetorical. No one, not even the most ardent Remainers know where the EU will be in 5 years time, because its all decided behind closed doors.
  19. Steve, you say 'give me the status quo and get back to how things were a few years ago'. That's the problem with the EU Steve, there is no 'status quo'. It is a continuously evolving body. The real problem is that they never produce a manifesto. All the decisions are behind closed doors by the unelected elite in Brussels. Just one example: If your 'status quo' is the date of the referendum, the EU were lying through their teeth that there were plans for an EU Army. Even Britain's Deputy Prime Minister was saying an EU Army was a 'fantasy'. We all know different now. Steve, rather than concentrate on the status quo, tell me where you think the continuously evolving EU will be in 5 years time?
  20. Mike, without putting words into Matt's mouth, I think his opinion is that it is accurate. My opinion is that it isn't.
  21. As I've said before, analogies are opinions, they don't prove anything. Glad you got pleasure from them though.
  22. Root has been our biggest problem. He is not a good, natural captain and the responsibility is having an adverse effect on his batting. His 50 odd yesterday, was very lucky, being dropped three times. Got to give Stokes a chance.
  23. I recognise that that is your opinion Matt, However, it doesn't prove anything. The Governor of the Bank of England forecast that there would be a recession in the first year following a Leave vote. The Treasury, through Osborne, said unemployment would go up by 820,000. Yesterday, the Office for National Statistics said that employment is the highest for 45 years. Germany are a lot closer to recession than we are, they missed it by a knife;s edge in the last quarter.
  24. This response is so poor on so many levels that it is not worth a response. Just a tip, the use of the term Strawman is so pathetic that I would think 99% of the people on here gag when they see it.
  25. I'm getting confused here Mike. The Chancellor of the Exchequer announces in the House of Commons (pre referendum) that failure to negotiate a deal with the EU would result in Britain leaving the EU automatically. If no deal was negotiated, 'automatically' means no deal. This responds to a post that said that no deal was ever mentioned prior to the referendum. Where did I say that Gove was a remainer? He keeps changing his mind on which of the Tory strategies are the most popular this week. Don't rate him, think he's a weasel.
