Spurs Transfers
at 10:24 13 May 2021

Last summer, (and before) it felt like Hojberg had been "got at" and we were being short changed on the deal. Now, looking back, I'd say that we haven't really missed Hojberg much and getting KWP for £12m has been a masterful negotiation. He has his flaws (who doesn't) but his ambition and enthusiasm mostly bring much joy to the game.

Robert Jenrick - Incompetent or corrupt?
at 12:02 3 May 2021

His decision on approving a tory donor planning that avoided a multi million community contribution was dodgy to say the least.

This is just incompetent grandstanding. Most churches and crematoria cannot accommodate more than 20-25 people with proper social distancing, so unless there is to be an outside service in a cemetery, the ruling is totally meaningless. In the past, this would probably account for less than 1% of all funerals (except for the romany/traveller community, and the IRA where enforcing rules and laws are off the agenda). - Not racist by the way, just observed fact by hundreds if not thousands of people around the country.

Based on the almost complete disregard for mask wearing, I'd say there is little chance of any fans return to matches until next season.

Talk about deceiving yourself. It doesn't take much of a brain to figure what he was doing wasn't going to pass muster. Now he is trying to blame the council. Doh! https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-wiltshire-56666447

Effectively he is saying that building a big shed is not an enclosed space.

Plan B
at 17:03 20 Feb 2021

It was great to see we have a workable option when KWP is out of contention. It was tough against a very good Chelsea side who moved the ball about well and were quick to close down when they lost possession.

Whilst Djeneppo has his best game for us today, against lesser opposition and with Armstrong in for preference, we would still create plenty of opportunities with his drive. I am pleased to that Salisu is emerging as a useful player now that he is adapting to the speed and pressure in the PL.

Crystal Palace vs Burnley
at 14:41 13 Feb 2021

Looking at this fixture, I am struggling to believe that the PL is the best league in the world. Probably no more than 55,000 people in the entire world interested in the result. I don't mean to be derogatory to either club or sets of supporters, but really.....

RH grateful for fans support
at 18:43 4 Feb 2021

Said he was more emotional than after any win with the support given after the latest 9-0. I've always thought the "We March On" slogan was rubbish. In my head it always makes me think of the cr@p time under Mark Hughes. However, in our present circumstances, it has suddenly become meaningful.

EU - Astra Zeneca Deal
at 13:16 29 Jan 2021

From the redacted bits published, it looks like the first 100m by Q1 are "Best Reasonable Efforts" which as usual means just that. The "Binding" statement is in the paragraph about the total initial commitment to buy 300m.

Based on the b0llocks from the EU Justice Minister slagging off the UK, it looks like he knows that they haven't really got a leg to stand on and is trying to levelage emotional blackmail to make us give up some of the UK vaccine volume, which is more tightly legally committed to. Dare I suggest that the mighty EU contract negotiators have been well and truly tupped? These are the people who were mocking the UK as we had "no suitable experience of negotiating contracts" before Brexit.

Pritti Patel, House Parties, £800 fines and Ignorance Influencial People
at 18:56 21 Jan 2021

So, Patel (and I am definitely NOT a fan), announces £800 on the spot fines for people attending house parties of 15 or more. She is immediately challenged by the media and the public saying that this just suggests that it is OK to do the same with 14 or less.

The stupid woman did not respond that it remains illegal to meet with more than one person with an on the spot fine of up to £200. Neither did the Shadow Home Sec when asked on LBC if he supported the move (he did). None of the media chumps at the press conference acknowledged this although the BBC has it on its webpage report. meantime usual suspects are up in arms about it (not on here though, where a better class of poster dwells).

Love of Footy or Love of the Occassion

The Covid situation has highlighted the "atmosphere" issues. The media had been on about the negativity of Southampton fans at St Mary's, though I don't think that fans are particularly down on the team, on the contrary. However, away results have been fgar superior to home results for some time. The absence of fans seems to have improved home performances. Clearly, the team feel a difference. What do you think?

Karen Carney Leeds Comments
at 17:47 30 Dec 2020

Harsh to castigate Leeds FC club for stating the obvious. Carney's comments regarding Covid break benefiting Leeds is B*llocks, considering all clubs were in the same situation. If pundits make stupid statements, they should expect to get the incoming flak. I am no great lover of Leeds, The 70's success and subsequent arrogance from club and supporters doesn't endear them to anyone outside of Leeds and York. In this case, even the mild denigration from someone paid a fortune to offer informed opinion deserves a comeback IMHO.

Stop all trading with Celtic (apart from purchases)

I am sick to death of all the ferkin links on Newsnow Southampton that relate to Celtic, just because we loaned them a sub standard winger (who has found his level). If we stop dealing with them, there won't be 4-5 Celtic threads appearing there every day. Worth it to me.
