    Can we make the Playoffs?

    Win at Brentford and the play-offs will almost become an expectation. Lose at Brentford and the gap might well be too big with the games we have remaining. Showed the table to my Spanish colleague and his reaction was we could still make 2nd...

    Premier League Stuff

    For the impecunious Chaddy: English football divided over post-Brexit visas for players Premier League opposes FA’s plans to curb foreign nationals at top clubs The Football Association sees Brexit as a rare opportunity to curb foreign players, forcing top clubs to develop local talent that will boost the England national team

    Premier League Stuff

    Looks like Brexit will end English domination of European football. Clubs won't be able to sign players. This will lead to a significant shift in power to Burnley.

    You do realise that the 1 million British pensioners in Spain are fluent Spanish speakers earning over £26,500 per year. Or not? Tinduna li l-1 miljun pensjonant Ingliż fi Spanja huma fluwenti kelliema Spanjoli li jaqilgħu aktar minn £ 26,500 fis-sena. Jew le? (The next US President could be a Maltese speaker so the very least I could do is use Google translate..)

    Incidentally that wanker has never picked fruit. It is rated one of the most physically demanding of all manual labouring jobs.

    As was pointed out on the BBC, Johnson is a nasty piece of work. In person, he is an unremarkable narcisist.

    Everybody in Blackburn has had the opportunity to move to Preston, Manchester, London etc but have chosen not to. Just like Ireland, all are wealthier than Blackburn on a per capita basis.

    Lancashire Telegraph

    https://www.lancashiretelegraph.co.uk/sport/football/rovers/news/17664143.what-we-can-learn-from-the-stats-around-rovers-right-back/ The discussion about the right back position is on the appropriate thread but just a shout out for Rich Sharpe and the LT. This sort of analysis article is exactly the sort of quality journalism that keeps local papers alive. I find myself clicking onto the LT for news and views about Rovers increasingly. Great stuff- long may it continue.

    Things are going horrifically for you all left over there in what's left of the UK. 1) you have the PM in thrall to a eugenicist. The 27 year old kid was chosen because he says what Cummins believes if you travel through Cummins supposedly brilliant but in fact deranged writings. 2) the ERG are getting what they want from Brexit which is wholesale destruction of British productive assets which the asset strippers can sweep up for a song using the cheap money made available from.the National Debt going to stratospheric highs. 3) the Cabinet comprises utter non-entities. The only hope is Johnson is treating Number 10 like it is an extension of the London Mayor's office. He could hide his inept incompetence in City Hall by the occasional grand standing stunt. The national media is a bit more diverse than the Lebedev owned Standard...
