  1. When Paul Johnson is critcising the Tories they really have problems. He was an arch Thatcherite who if he went any further to the right he'd fall off the edge.

  2. That's the problem with this taking a knee thing, people are interpreting it wrong. Mainly due to a lack of knowledge of NFL IMO. Understandable really, it is a predominantly US followed sport. The way I see it in NFL terms, taking a knee means either "stop the clock" or "finish the game". So if you translate that to BLM, it's a symbolic gesture of "stop" and/or "finish" racism. But people round the World are seeing pictures of groups of white people taking the knee in front of groups of black people. And associating that with "bowing down" to or apologising to them.

  5. Walton's errors in the first half of the season were as numerous as Raya's or moreso, but without the brilliant saves to compensate. How spectacular the blunders are is irrelevant because they still shipped goals. He has improved a lot but still doesn't reach the shots Raya can stop at times. Would ditch him to have Raya back in a shot.

  6. Never in my life have I ever heard President Assad's military campaign preceded with the word "thankfully". Assad used chemical weapons against his own people. For all of America's wrongs in the Middle East we shouldn't start paying homage to a dictator and war criminal like Assad.

  7. Interesting emphasis on the word guarantee there Stuart (your emphasis at that). You've made your opinion on LFC's 'influence' very clear in the past, but that is all it is, an opinion. Not a guarantee.....

  8. Apparently Marcus Rashford has come under attack on social media from right-wing Manchester United fans who are spewing vitriol and saying they'll never support the club again. Don't they know that the greatest manager in the club's history is a confirmed socialist?

  9. It would be complete over-saturation in my view. The only change I’d want (selfishly) would be being able to watch away games for Rovers. You would think the genie is out of the bottle now. Every game will probably be available for £10 per match and 3pm would no longer be sacrosanct. Too expensive in my view. The going rate for streaming is £6-£10 per month - unless one views football like PPV boxing. But the spectacle of professional football really is being there live in the ground. It’s a bug, a social habit, with genuine elation and joy, and stress and misery, shared with people

  11. We backed both horses says Hancock (who also said it would be ready by mid may). Then why isn't the Google/Apple App up and running? Because yet again the government backed the wrong horse to something that he previously said was 'essential' to the system. If the man had a scintilla of dignity then he would resign, every decision he has taken during this pandemic has been wrong.

  12. And whilst the whole World is now following suit, everyone seems to have forgotten that Kaepernick was basically fired, made an outcast, and has not worked as a professional sportsman since. He's 32 now, so 4 years of his peak career this has cost him.

  14. Just checked and hes only made 8 league starts with 1 further sub appearance this season, with a solitary goal and assist both coming in that Everton game prior to the lockdown. A great player in his time but has never fully replicated his Barcelona form with Chelsea and seems to have particularly faded since Lampard came in and focused more on younger players and of course Willian.

  17. 5 Subs per match on the face of it is good because we have some decent kids coming through. That said, this will benefit clubs with better quality in depth in their squads and is unfair on smaller clubs that do not have that benefit and have built their squad around the previous rules of 3 subs per game. They should have kept the same rules - it is the same for everybody regarding injuries and fitness. Managers should have to just rotate more each match (TM would have loved that).

  18. It's 5 subs but only 3 stoppages per team for subs, so you'd have to do multiple players in at least one go. If Bell isn't fit and the choices for left-back are Williams, Mulgrew, Downing, Rankin-Costello and Bennett then I genuinely don't see why the Under 23's left-back can't be given a go. He'd be no worse than any of them lot in that position...

  22. Yeah, agree with Philip. Surely it's "if you believe 2 Russian agents came to England under false names.......just to sightsee Salisbury Cathedral spire..... then I have a bridge to sell you." I mean, sure it's possible. Maybe they fell in love on the job, and it was a romantic getaway. I hear they're all about that in Russia. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

  25. I suppose Hazard is irreplacable. The other 2 are past their best now, they do have Pulisic who has had injuries in his first season but cost 60m, they have Ziyech who has cost over 40m, Hudson Odoi who again got an injury but has been capped for England, they should have more than enough in that front 3 now.

  28. I dont think Sky or any broadcaster does see fans quite as unimportant as background noise as you put it, theres a constant acknowledgement that it isnt the same even from commentators and pundits. I feel thats a bit of a stretch, but of course money rules the roost, and if the demand is there, it will always be something they will push and push and feel justified in doing so. I dont know whether they will push for that, the Premier League is already all over the place in terms of schedule but having at least half of the games on a Saturday at 3pm at least gives it some structure and I am unsu

  30. Rovers got Samba from Hertha reserves. He was a fantastic player. I agree. Werner is a very good player. I rate Abraham too. He's a bit gangly but will improve. He's not in Werner's class but has scored a bag full this season (last season in the Championship too) and is a few years younger.

  31. Ignoring not being able to trust Western governments, why do you even need to ask that question? The Chinese government is amongst the most corrupt in the world. They don't 'burden' their population with the truth - only the side of the story that paints China in the best light. You simply cannot trust what comes out of the Chinese Communist Party's mouth. I think that's accepted universally. One only needs to look at the communications ban that is in place in China to see the true methods of governance there.

  34. Proof of the pudding will be in the eating, but if it turns out that Dack can return significantly more athletic (seem to remember Robert Pires coming back from an ACL injury in a similar way) then it could be the difference from him being a very good Championship player, to one who is Perhaps a very optimistic reading of things, but it was only his sharpness that stops him dominating at this level. He definitely has the ability to play in the top league.

  36. Whilst I do actually agree, managers rotating more in this way also still favours clubs with more squad depth. Either way smaller clubs are at a disadvantage, but really that's the whole point, in this league its what sets 17th aside from 5th.

  37. One issue brought about VAR and GLT is that it's taken away the responsibility of match officials (particularly linesman) who seem reluctant to make decisions in the knowledge they have some technical backup. Pre technology I think the linesman would have seen the ball over the line but the trust they have in the technology for matters of fact is total. For something as crucial as this though I believe VAR should have intervened as they would have had complete evidence that the ball was over the line.

  42. Question @chaddyrovers why do you think Johnson is telling the truth and not Starmer on this. One account is backed up by hard evidence, the other has no evidence/proof. One story is corroborated by unions and teachers saying they aren't being consulted. One has a history of lying whereas the other doesn't. Who seems more likely to be telling the truth here. Again your Tory bias is letting you down. Objectively, rationally the likelihood of the true version of events is not favourable to Boris, yet you ignore all of this evidence, circumstantial and hard proof in favour of champion

  47. Just had a proper read of the notes of the FF meeting and, potentially, the more I read it the more appalled I am. I really hope Waggott doesn't send out another communication advising fans that refunds are a matter of "financial hardship" and that if you want one you've got to contact the Club pleading your case. Refunds should be available to anyone who wants one regardless of status, and regardless of the reason they want one, no questions asked, but obviously if you get one you don't get the I follow. I'm sure we've all been in the position at some point where we've had to
