    New Kits

    Only thing worse is finding out that birdy is doing an embarrassing kit launch video and making a proper chop out of himself
  3. I think when retirement was first introduced, life expectancy was 65 years and 3 months. With life expectancy increasing, it's harder and harder to justify keeping the retirement age as it is, because it is incumbent on following generations to create the wealth to help pay for it. The same generations that are locked out of housing and social mobility and are burdened with decades of debt repayments just because they wanted a university education. I don't think it's "madness" to give them money to invest in their future (rather than spent on an epic beer-up in Magaluf), because these are the people I'll be relying on for my pension. I'm sorry that your partner has to work for longer, but as bad as it may seem, she won't have it anywhere near as bad as those entering the world of work in the last five or ten years.
  4. Re:stitches, best not to eat anything heavy within two hours before your run. It's caused, I think, by your internals bouncing up and down on your diaphragm. If you get one, slow down a bit, and press your forefinger and middle finger down on your stomach right underneath your rib cage. Also try to breathe out only when your left foot hits the floor

    Gillingham complaints.

    I don't remember the game being called off, but I remember being at the game when it was played, so it must have been the rearranged game. The goalie got dog's abuse, it was absolutely freezing and foggy, at least one of the balls got punted miles out of the ground and one of the ball boys was a Burnley fan. Funny the things you remember.

    Brexit Thread

    Yes, I'm really turned on by the other opportunities, after we shoot ourselves in the foot and poke ourselves in the eye with a pen. We can forge exciting new trade links with American samoa and East Timor. We'll be so much better off doing trade deals with these economies thousands of miles away while we impose physical and financial trade barriers between us and France/Germany. Oh yes, very exciting times. I'm sure Ireland, as they poach companies from the UK, will wish they were in our shoes. No other country has a towering intellect like Liam fox to call on. A very reassuring presence

    Walsall v Rovers

    You fool. It's Graham and Armstrong in goal. Conway at the back because his legs have gone and bell as an advanced full back

    Portsmouth v Rovers

    How on earth does Williams get a game, what is it that he does? Nyambe looked decent to me. Dack was pivotal. They got through us too easily with pace at times, it should have been a draw, they came so close in the first half. A good match all-in-all. But if we go up, then we'll need half a new team, or we'll struggle.

    Brexit Thread

    It's a problem that the UK didn't have before brexit. The Australian government had responded to it by seemingly increasing the freedom of movement of people across its borders. Something the UK could achieve by starting in the eu. Thanks for clarifying that you're not comparing the UK with Australia in any way.

    I wouldn't pretend to understand Australia's problems, but I'm willing to bet they're not anything to do with walking away from the world's biggest free trading bloc that's right on their doorstep. In tennis, that's known ss an unforced error. How can you compare the problems both countries have without comparing the countries? This is just linguistic gymnastics. Clearly, you're comparing the countries.

    Why does dave insist on comparing the UK to Australia, like they're somehow similar? Did I miss Australia leaving the eu, and going on to be stronger for it? We didn't used to have a problem with farm labour, because we used people from Europe. Now they've left because of brexit and we have control, no bugger wants to do the job they did, and we will suffer economically for it. Doesn't seem too difficult to join the dots up

    Blimey, thought there was more people on the forum than that

    If var is retained, I will barely believe it. It will completely kill the game, given time. The only positive thing I can think of is that this should kill off the debate once and for all.

    Seventeen games unbeaten, sends like our terrible start will cost us and we'll end up in the play-offs. Now that will be pressure.
