    Honda are in Blackburn on the road from Brownhill to Wilpshire. It's a pretty big dealership. Or Green acre Honda is Clitheroe have always been excellent. That could, mind you, be because my husband taught half of them or taught their kids

    Tony Mowbray - The Manager.

    It seems a bit harsh to me to talk of sacking Mowbray at this stage, although I did get very frustrated at the bit of the match I saw on TV yesterday and I do understand that it must be hard to watch it go wrong at the ground. However, do you trust even the marginal improved version of venkys we have now to improve on Mowbray if they do decide to get rid? I voted review in summer but I read the interview in the LT where he said about needing staff in the summer so perhaps that'll be the help he needs

    I've got a bit of all sorts too as my husbands a southerner so I've used some of his phrases and he used some of mine. I just tried to think back to what I used to say when I was a kid but for me the telling words were nithered and mafted. Never heard them anywhere but Teesside and me when I say them still

    Oh I agree that Cameron started it with his referendum pledge and his unseemly haste to call it but I think the way Teresa May has handled the matter since has been disgraceful. Yes she was dealt a difficult hand but has done nothing to help herself and the country. Her intransigence, her putting party before country, her ineptitude towards the whole affair beggars belief. If she thinks that dragging the country out of the EU in a disorderly fashion to appease those who shout loudest at the expense of those who are most needy will gain her a place in history, it will but I'm not sure it will be the place she craves

    It covered the north east from Northumberland to Hull for me and nearly as far across as the border with lances. Covering all bases when one word should have told it exactly or almost exactly where I was from

    It just gets worse and worse. At least May's legacy, if she does get us out, will be as the single most destructive prime minister in recent history

    It's why my daughter took dual German and British citizenship before the referendum and just in case. She knew shed get it then because she met all the criteria but had no guarantees what might happen if the unthinkable happened and we voted leave.

    This surely. The company may be determined to hold prices and keep supplying but at government level its a different matter

    I think most would be if they'd been sold it properly in the first place. Problem is, nobody really campaigned on that. Nor did anyone turn their tax form over and look at the incredibly small amount of cash we spend to the EU compared to what we spend elsewhere.

    When? In 30 years time when I'm dead and buried. I don't see a queue of countries rushing to offer us fantastic deals. Nor do I think travel will be easier. It will immediately become more difficult to travel to Europe as well be subject to many restrictions and rules we don't have now.

    Me too. I've lived in France, travel frequently to Europe, love visiting but don't want to move there because I'm British through and through. This country at its best is fantastic. Unfortunately I don't think it's at its best when it becomes insular and assumes nothing good comes from mixing with other cultures, absorbing their best ideas and adapting them to make them work best for us

    First half was fun. Bit more of a fight in the second.

    Is that not a protest against the current government and its austerity measures, against their handling even then of the Brexit mess they got us into, as much as an endorsement of Corbyn. And he's a damned good campaigner. If he'd campaigned against Brexit we wouldn't be in this mess now

    Guendouzi had just broken into Lorients team in ligue 2 when arsenal bought him. Bigger step up I'd say. Not saying this would be a good signing were it true as I haven't a clue about the player but don't write it off just because of where he is now

    This was how England should have been playing for ages but we've always seemed too nervy to do so. We've always had the talent but a lot of our players were very inexperienced at this level. Now they've matured a bit and can play to their strengths. Good to see Tom Curry of Sale put in a good performance despite his sending off

    Since I spend about 25% of each year there, I do. I speak fluent French and fairly fluent German. I have German and Korean grandchildren and have no desire personally to be anything but English. Doesn't mean I can't appreciate other people and customs and want to cooperate closely with them

    Do people actually report posts? 😄 I can't believe it unless they contain offensive material. An odd harsh remark or a dig at someone should be water off a ducks back
