  1. 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.

    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

    Got any Barry Manilow?
  4. 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
  5. 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.

    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.
  7. Brexit Thread

    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
  10. VAR

    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.
  12. I've had a lot to contend with in the last few years. Fitness work has suffered because of it. I suffer from bad ankles as well, but I've somehow managed to get round a fair few races. Notable ones last year were hoad hill 10k, Norwich 10k,bridge to bridge run in arnhem and Greenwich 10k. Also managed to do some strength work. Don't even ask about my diet, it was appalling. I've never smoked, don't do drugs and don't drink much beer these days. Junk food is my comfort weapon of choice. Not sure how I got through the year, to be honest. I was a broken man in October, and quit my job. This year, I'm being sponsored to do a half marathon for alzheimers society in March. Let me know if you want to sponsor me, I'm still short of my fund raising goal. Might do a few other races. Not sure yet. One of the biggest things though, will be getting my shed done and fitted out so I can workout in it. On top of that, I want to do more yoga, to help me cope with things.

    I'll be surprised if he's found not guilty because he's on cctv running after people, giving them a good boxing.

    Who's saying he should've stood there and done nothing? You live in a black and white world
