Yeah, I consider myself old school left as well, find the new identity politics divisive and a distraction from the real issues, but that doesn't mean that we have to forever be stuck with the social attitudes of the 70's.
yeah, it's a disappointing start, but he's taken over a team that was in freefall, out of form and confidence, he's made some interesting signings but is hampered by injuries and our financial situation. it's going to take a while to turn this round.
Yeah, if we are going to use Armstrong, then we need him running at defences, not receiving the ball when he's static, back to goal,with the defence in position. And we need to use the lad, he's a real threat.
Dykes hasn't struck me as being a happy bunny for quite some time.
Absolutely. I believe Ramsey works across the board, while Hall is U23's manager. So when the likes of Sinclair Armstrong come in from other teams, that will be part of what they are looking at and talking to. The number of trialists who play for us, it's clear we are constantly looking for undiscovered gems, but the better financed, more successful teams in our catchment area hoover everything they can up, and then spit the majority of it out some time down the road. many of those kids would be better off starting their careers at us, Millwall etc, but it's a hard sell.
I actually think Nico's a better player then he showed on Saturday, he's shown it internationally, but his confidence has gone and he was hiding from the ball at times. When he did get it, he gave it away regularly and also played a few hospital passes. So I wouldn't criticise Chair for trying not to pass to him - I don't think he wanted it, and he wasn't a good option, bluntly. He needs a move somewhere less demanding and physical then the championship. Good on him for his tweet praising the Rangers fans, though.
Since they started regularly making this kind of programme - in the 80's, 90's? - I think the rich have really realised that it's just not fair, right or proper that they have so much more then their fellow countrymen, workers, whatever, and thus we have seen a huge transfer of wealth from the poor to the rich.
Ha ha, love your work Sheffield, even if I don't agree all the time, and certainly not here!
Your posts kind of encapsulate John Mill's arguments for free speech, including the concept of hearing the counter argument to show you why the initial line of reasoning was right.
And, at times, to remind of us of truths when current beliefs become dogma.
Sheffield, Baz etc, keep up the good work.
Edit, later in the thread Sheffield suggests he could be me. It's possible, I had my passport stolen in the 80's, and I've always wondered if there's another me, if he made a better fist of it from me, or even if I'm actually me. Down the wormhole I go.
