|Latest polls - how are we all feeling?|
at 10:28 9 Dec 2019
As we enter the dog days of the election campaign, today's BBC poll of polls has the following...
Con (43%) + Brexit Party (4%) + Others (1%) = 48%
Lab (32%) + LD (13%) + SNP (4%) + Green (3%) = 52%
...but you've got to assume that the electoral system will work against that anti-Tory/Brexit consensus to deliver Boris a majority and another 5 years of Brexit nonsense as the extremists in his party push him towards a hard Brexit at the end of next year.
Or maybe tactical voting will cancel out the wrinkles in the electoral system so that the majority actually wins this time.
Or maybe the weather on Thursday will keep the least committed at home?
Who is more likely to go out and vote: those wanting to 'get Brexit done' or those wanting to 'get Boris out'?
|Nothing to do with Brexit|

Elon Musk has decided to locate the new Tesla giga-factory in Berlin stating "Brexit made it too risky to put a Gigafactory in the UK".
But don't worry - Musk, who has revealed himself to be a remoaner traitor, is clearly peddling fake news. His true motives are obviously nothing at all to do with Brexit.

Neil Swarbrick (VAR head honcho) on Radio 4 News this lunchtime defending VAR as if all we were experiencing were a few teething troubles. We're only 12 games in he said, we're still learning how to use the technology. Utterly pathetic.
If his attitude is anything to go by, we are going to be stuck with this omni-shambles for many many more months to come.

It's not impossible that we could win our next 3 games.
Sneak a win at flaky Arsenal, and then two home games against (on paper) the weakest teams in the league, that we would really need anyway.
Arsenal at home lit the Hassenhutl fuse paper last season. Arsenal away this time anyone?!
|Team of recent purchases|
at 19:50 28 Oct 2019
Here's the team we've bought since 17/18...
Bednarak – Vestergaard – Hoedt – Danso
Elyounoussi – Lemina – Armstrong – Djenepo
Ings – Adams
Would that team have lost 0-9 ?

Before I’m shot down, I’m not making excuse, that was abysmal all ends up but...
...there can’t have been many underconfident teams playing a team on the up who, while waiting to kick off again after another early goal, are told, by the way, you’re down to 10 from here too.
I’m not sure there will have been many (if any?) pre-VAR games where that double kick in the nuts would have happened. Sitting in the stands, it felt like an immediate and very sudden game over. Not easy for the players that.
|Johnson’s Extension dodge|
at 00:24 20 Oct 2019
He’s kept us guessing for a good month or so. How was the PM going to abide by the legal requirement to send a letter asking for an extension but not ask for an extension? He had some fiendish legal trick up his sleeve for sure...
...and now we know. He sent the letter but didn’t sign it! Brilliant, quite quite brilliant.
Next week: how he actually promised the DUP no border in the Irish Sea with his fingers crossed.

Thought I'd see what's up on the LDSports website ( https://www.ldsports.uk) and someone has spent a couple of hours on it because it's been simplified and there is also a bit more info about LD Sports itself...
"We are a media company specializes in the field of sports. We thrive to be the best in the industry by delivering exclusive and unique content right to our users.
We operate mainly from Asia and having experts from the fields have us the competitive edge we needed. Graphic designers, web developers, full video production crews and more to having state of the art facilities we are confident that we are more than capable to deliver our products and services at the best quality. Instead of reporting on sports news, gossip and more like the others, we separate ourselves from the norm by crafting our own content from a different perspective of the sports with exclusive in brand game shows, youtube star appearances, live broadcast, Q&A Sessions, vlogs, unboxing, reviews and so much more.
With our ever-growing fanbase of 22,000 and counting fans on Weibo we are excited to launch our first official website to the public. We are grateful to be able to partner with Southampton FC for the upcoming seasons as we know we will be creating history together."
I'm no expert on social media but am I right in thinking that they are the equivalent of a YouTube channel dedicated to sport but on Weibo rather than YouTube??
They haven't they bothered to get a proper corporate writer for their site (or even to get the thing proofread), they are pinning their hopes on the unique sports perspective of 'unboxing' (...some of you may need to look this up...) and they have a mighty 22,000 subscribers.
I can't see them attracting a fiver on Dragon's Den and yet they are sponsoring a premier league football club.
Serious question. If they are in a position to sponsor a premier league football club why is their website so p!ss poor?

2pm kick off on Sunday is shouting out for a Sunday Lunch or Carvery beforehand.
Can anyone recommend anywhere - preferably somewhere central or within walking distance of the ground?
