Latest polls suggest the UK is showing signs of breaking up.
at 11:43 12 Sep 2019

Odd that there didn’t seem to be the third option on the poll. That is Northern Ireland as it’s own independent nation.

By the logic of Brexit this is the perfect solution, as it pleases almost nobody in equal measure!

Let’s be honest here. Brexit has pretty much confirmed the future break up of the UK. Scotland within 10 years, NI within 20, and most likely Wales will follow suit within 30! The momentum will snowball and there will be no stopping it. Like it or lump it, I see it as almost inevitable now.

Regardless of the final result tonight, We look shapeless to be honest. We have for the last 5 or so games.

Doesn’t seem to be a system or plan in place.

Is the correct answer.

4 wingers on the pitch for us for Petes sake!

What position is Bale playing?

No striker to run in behind, hold up the ball, or provide a target.

Does Brexit die tonight?
at 14:04 3 Sep 2019

This is always it with Boris. It’s only about his own career.

He is essentially forcing a No deal/No brexit outcome. As he knows any deal he can agree with the EU will please absolutely no one (see Theresa May).

He will blame the EU, and “remainer” MP’s for either outcome. This is the antithesis of the “strong leadership” that more extreme brexiteers are suggesting it is.

Parliament to be suspended in September
at 17:58 28 Aug 2019

So let me get this strait.

To uphold and save UK democracy, our unelected prime minister will suspend parliament to prevent our elected representatives from voting to stop him forcing through an outcome nobody voted for. (Nobody voted for no deal, it wasn’t on the ballot)

We have gone way beyond satire, and entered the twilight zone.

Best performance of the season so far.

More like we looked under Laudrup IMO, with our wingers coming infield and the fullbacks roaming forwards providing the width.

Special mention for Grimes. Was solid and composed throughout, and kept us ticking like Britton used to. However, his range of passing gives us an extra dimension. He can fire a pinpoint crossfield ball over the top to pick out a wingers run in behind the defence. This keeps the opposition back four from pushing up playing a higher line, meaning more space in the middle of the park for the creative/attacking players to do their stuff.

Lovely balance to this team.

Ferrie Bodde - back in Swansea.
at 15:08 24 Aug 2019

Indeed, Seb Larsson wasn’t it? Totally needless tackle if I remember correctly, Ferre was shepherding an overhit through-ball out for a GK when he was absolutely clattered as the ball crossed the byline. No foul given.

Work until you die?

According to some brexit enthusiasts and “further right” Tories it’s all the immigrants fault.

Except that the majority of immigrants arrive here at working age, pay taxes, and then “retire” back to their counties of birth. Meaning they contribute to the pension and benefit pot, without withdrawing from it in young or old age.

Won’t be true in every case of course, but if you are arguing that there are too many older people out of work due to an ageing population, then surely we need increased immigration to mitigate the imbalance.

Laudrup had the same philosophy on this. When defending a lead and the opposition were putting us under pressure, he used to stick on another winger/striker (preferably pacey) to keep them pinned back. Most of the time it seemed to be effective.

Basically, “attack is the best form of defence.”

Loved Forbesy, but most of his “skills” and “tricks” ended up with him leaving the ball behind or tripping over his own feet!

Borja - He Stays
at 18:25 18 Aug 2019

He started about 5, and made about 15 appearances off the bench. He didn’t look comfortable at any point that season. He wasn’t strong enough on the ball, and his close control was nowhere near the level needed for the role we wanted him to play. I saw all his home and 2 (I think) away appearances live and all the others on the tele. It was tough watching us at the time, especially under Bob. The players seemed to be playing with no real plan or system, we were utterly shapeless.

The main problem was the way we were playing at the time. The team was playing badly in general anyway, creating very few chances. But we tried to use him like Bony, to hold up the ball and bring others into play, and that was never going to go well.

Borja - He Stays
at 17:55 18 Aug 2019

Looked out of his depth in the PL, but we really struggled that year, and under Bradley we were plain awful. It wasn’t the best environment for him to shine.

He is a different sort of player than we have had recently up front, a “poacher”. He isn’t going to run himself into the ground like Michu and McBurnie, and he isn’t going to beat many with his dribbling skills a la Trundle. We are going to have to pick him out with crosses into the box and trust his instincts to find space and finish.

All 3 of our goals yesterday came from crosses into the box to Borja, even Byers goal came from Borjas blocked shot from Celina's low cross.

I usually like a small, old fashioned ground, but I hate Loftus Road. It’s cramped, uncomfortable, the sight lines are poor, and somehow just feels wrong.

See Craven cottage for how a modernisation (of sorts) of an old fashioned ground should be. Always thoroughly enjoyable. Helps that we always win there!

ENG v WAL
at 14:19 12 Aug 2019

Why do we play these stupid “warm up” games. 4 of them this year ffs!! We always have 2/3 key players injured and out of the tournament because of them, and there’s usually only 1 or 2 games.

Rugby players careers are short enough, most only get 1 maybe 2 cracks at a World Cup, just to be ruined by this nonsense. Football teams only play 1 or 2 friendlies before major tournaments, and they are played a a snails pace. You just can’t play a “friendly” in rugby. It’s all out physicality or nothing!
