  1. Notts County, the oldest football league club looks like folding.. 11 days to find a buyer of a club with mountainous debts. 157 years of tradition count for nothing where money is concerned.
  2. Did some research to find out the most senior person who has accused the EU of being 'undemocratic'. The most senior I could find was the outgoing president of the EU, Jean-Claude Juncker. Now if Juncker accuses you of being undemocratic, you know you're in trouble.
  3. This is the same man whose project fear forecasts for the last three years have been crap.
  4. Apparently, this rule was introduced by Allen Stanford the (jailed) tycoon who introduced it in 2008 for his T20 series.
  5. I agree Bill, they are very interesting.
  6. Mike, I'm sure I saw you take a corner and hit the first defender? Unless you weren't the only one in white boots.
  7. It was only a fracture though Mike. Elastoplast usually sorts that.😁
  8. There have been criticisms on this thread of the method of appointing a new Conservative Leader/PM. Compared to the charade of the appointments to senior roles in the EU, the Conservative method was sobriety itself. As usual, all the key decisions in the EU are made by the unelected elite, behind closed doors. Even the EU Parliament have to sit and watch.
  9. Cheers Matt, thanks.
  10. MP's are the most self serving people on the planet - all parties. Matt, off-thread I know, but have been reading about the spat between Switzerland and the EU. As you are at the coal-face, as they say, I would be interested in hearing your take on this.
  11. Really sorry about that Mike. As Matt says, outside chance that someone handed it in somewhere. Check with local police etc.,
  12. After the race, Leclerc was quoted as saying that it was only a matter of time before he was overtake by Verstappen. Pleased it was judged a 'racing incident'. Its about time we had a decent 'race' instead of the usual procession.
  13. Well done Mike. Just to clarify, the old man wasn't me. I didn't go out yesterday.😄
  14. Report in today's paper on the Surrey game. ' England all-rounder jSam Curran claimed three wickets on his return from injury'
  15. Agree with this. Root has the discipline in his batting to be able to open. Curran has just returned from injury? Needs a few county games.
  16. Me too. We would have to get someone who can take penalties as well.

    Jokes thread

    Couple returned from holiday in Spain. Wife was disappointed because all the food was English and everyone spoke English. She said, 'next time we go on holiday I want to go somewhere where the food is crap and you can't understand what people say'. Husband has booked a fortnight in Scotland.
  18. Politics comes a very poor second to what we share on here - lifetime supporters of Everton. Will make my day whenever I meet fellow Toffee's. Cornish Steve the only one so far. What a memorable day that was.
  19. Yes, me too. Don't want to fall out 'cos if we ever meet up you won't buy me a beer!😄
  20. Mike, no matter how much gloss you put on it, IF Boris is voted in by the membership he will have been 'voted in'. Brown wasn't, in spite of the fact that Labour Party rules state that the membership should vote. Brown was 'nodded through'. Democratic that. You state that 'nobody voted for Boris and this situation is totally unprecedented in our history - however much you suggest otherwise. As for 'pointing out facts' - Half of all Prime Ministers appointed in the last 100 years, were not appointed as a result of a General Election, ie voted in in accordance with party rules. Not exactly unprecedented. Not up to your usual standard Mike.
  21. The fact remains, Gordon Brown was never voted in and you seem to have a sudden respect for voting after three years of trying to overturn the largest vote in our history.
  22. Mike, I've answered it. The rules for both Labour and Conservatives require the membership to vote. Bringing the 'voting public' in is hypothetical. I will state it again, if the Conservative hypothetical vote is 0.27% then Gordon Brown's was 0%.
