    Cricket

    I couldn't care less about finals day. Ram it mate. As matt said, they're just interested in earning money. No ambition at all. How are fans meant to get excited about that? It's pathetic. No point changing the monkey when the organ grinder is making a poor do

    Brexit Thread

    Brexit, brought to you by rees mogg. The same fella who wants an expeditionary force to go to the Falklands, just in case the war kicks off again. Who wants a star wars system for the UK, just like the one Roald Reagan wanted for the US, at a time when he was deteriorating mentally. It would be funny if it wasn't so serious. Where Boris the dosser gone? Farage, gove, Johnson, rees mogg. The one thing they all have in common (besides being tossers) is that they've never taken any responsibility for their brexit wet dream. They've stood on the sidelines jeering as other people have had the impossible job of making a success out of a hopeless throwback deluded half-baked fantasy. Typical of people who've never had to operate in the real world, who've let other people deal with the consequences of their selfish nonsense. The whole thing is nauseating

    Brexit Thread

    It's crazy that the UK keeps on putting the same deal on the table. It's brinkmanship, hoping that the eu will crack at the last minute. Of course they won't. So we'll crash out without any sort of deal at all. The consequences will be punitive and will be felt by all but the very rich, who have been the drivers of brexit from the very beginning and have used the press and social media to brain wash people. It's tragic that people will only realise that they've been had after irreversible damage has been done

    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
  6. WHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO???? There I was flicking through the first team profiles on the official site, as you do. "Who the bloody hell's that, looks like another frigging Portuguese chancer?!" Lo and behold he actually comes from Barcelona, is a goalie, but that's about it. He looks like he's related to one of those portuguese wasters though. I'm just wondering if it's all the same fella wearing disguises. Have we had more than one of these prats appear for the first team at the same time? Anyone seen Henrique and Raya in the same room together?
  7. 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.
  8. 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.

    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

    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.
  20. 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.

    Is OK to play for England if you've only been charged with affray? I don't really understand the logic.

    Weakness cannot be in our heart, it's kill or be killed, knife between the teeth, mano versus mano, unarmed football combat, we have to arrive violently and leave our opponents bleeding on the ground as we roll them over and batter the ball into the net. No mercy, no quarter given, come back with your shield or on it. Blood tears toil and sweat, graft and shaft. No retreat, no surrender. We must drive our enemies before us and hear the lamentation of the women. If you shirk a tackle, or I think you're shirking a tackle, I'll kill ya. If you slack off, I'll kill ya. If you concede a goal from out wide, I'll kill ya. If you play like a cream puff, I'll kill ya. Now, have you got all that, Rove-arse? 'cos if you haven't... I'll kill ya.
