    Summer Transfer Window 2019

    I think I remember the article re: paper hit rates that AAK was referring to, and the Mail hit rate for Rovers (while astonishingly good compared to average) was still around 35-40%, so less than half. Unless someone manages to find it and makes me look a complete arse.

    We'll do trade deals with Australia they said. It'll be easy, they said. They didn't tell us it'd be 'utter bollocks'. https://www.theguardian.com/australia-news/2019/mar/11/former-australian-pm-kevin-rudd-calls-brexit-trade-plan-utter-bollocks?CMP=share_btn_tw

    My take on it too. Bauer was only an option if he was willing to come and sit on the bench or work hard to compete. The free players have to be significantly better than our young players to be worth spending on, or want low wages. Was Bauer any better than what we have currently? Based on the games I watched, no. I was more impressed by our own Magloire. Personally think we'd moved on after January unless he seriously dropped his demands.

    I don't really mind that the Conservatives pick their leader. What bothers me is guaranteeing their choice is PM for nearly 3 years. GE please.

    I used to like him when he was a politically harmless buffoonish British cheerleader. Pre-2014 Boris. The mask has slipped since, however.

    If the border is moved to the Irish Sea, then do Northern Ireland exist?

    Quite telling that the Conservative leadership candidates predominantly lamented the poor running of the NHS, Immigration, and Education. If only Hunt, Javid, and Gove respectively had been in government and able to affect proceedings. Oh wait. The only one who comes across as someone who LISTENS TO PEOPLE is Rory Stewart and it did not surprise me he was applauded quite a lot. Hopefully people cotton on to the Boris pantomime, but I doubt it personally. They think he's the same liberal-viewed Boris that was made Mayor of London and championed British values at the 2012 Olympics. Nope, this is the insidious and incompetent Boris who makes racist remarks about British subjects, gets their sentences abroad extended, and can't keep the secret of in whom he puts his knob from month to month.

    If that’s not the away kit (assuming I won’t like whatever it ends up being), I’d just buy that. And the home version, frankly.

    If we used Mulgrew in midfield (money saver), and brought in Hanley and Bidwell, I’d genuinely be thrilled. Mulgrew and Travis in a midfield should have enough about it to support an attacking 3 of Armstrong, Dack, and Rothwell behind a striker. Whoever the striker is (DG, Ben, or new guy) would have to be confident holding their position though.
  10. I’ve only seen my Dad cry at football twice. 1. The 27,000 crowd vs Oxford in L1. He never thought we’d get so full again in his lifetime. 2. Matt Jansen applauding the Blackburn End while in a Bolton kit. ‘That boy saved us from a long time in the second division’.
  11. The thing that upsets me is, I don’t think we did (and just think how brilliant he was). Come ages 26/27/28 he’d have been possibly keeping Rooney from being an England regular for a bit.
  12. It comes to something when the genuinely awful idea of the 24/7 title is one of the only things I actually enjoy (R Truth is doing well with it imo, in the spirit of Crash Holly), the other thing being Firefly Funhouse. The stupid wildcard idea has killed both shows. The same 10 people dominating 5 hours per week is booooriiiiiing.

    Doesn’t get more European than... err... Blackpool...
  14. You’ve been watching George Carlin haven’t you? ’Place the turkey in a pre-heated oven... that’s stupid, there are only two states an oven can exist in. Heated or unheated!’ ’This programme was pre-recorded... well of course it was! When else are you gunna record it? Afterwards?!’

    The question you need to ask is whether any of the players we had under Hughes would’ve started every game in a top 6 side? I’d say Friedel, Bellamy. Nelsen at a push. Therefore, that team was far more than the sum of its parts and worked bloody hard.
