  1. Westminster Politics | Tories uncap bankers bonuses

    No offence but you seem to be the kind of person who gets all their takes from twitter. Did you watch any of the conference speeches? Do you pay attention to PMQs and parliamentary motion put forward such as when a windfall tax was shut down by the tories at the top of the year? Pandering to...
  2. Westminster Politics | Tories uncap bankers bonuses

    And if the polling was not going well what would you be saying then. There is no need to be so hysterical all the time. It's as if you would want Labour to lose to prove a point.
  3. Keir Starmer Labour Leader

    Without going too far into old ground I think one understated issue that impacted Corbyn negatively is simply that he was a career politician who spent decades in the obscurity of the commons and who came from a relatively privileged background. That was a tap in for attacks of champagne...
  4. Keir Starmer Labour Leader

    You're watching it on knowing there is not an election coming up. Labour have led the polls in healthy margins for a long time now indicating if the public were able to change government they would.
  5. Keir Starmer Labour Leader

    No one is saying Labour has it in the bag yet. What can be said is that the Labour leads in the polls has been going on all year and begun before the height of partygate and Johnson's downfall. There's been a rather smug attitude by some sections who have been predicting that it won't last long...
  6. Queen Elizabeth II | 1926-2022 | Rest in Peace

    Not a fan of a monarchy and my personal wish has been that once she passes so should go the institution. However I didn't dislike her at any point. She was there years before I was born and my entire lifetime since. And yet she was still someone who kept herself private. That one constant in a...
  7. Westminster Politics | Tories uncap bankers bonuses

    Only difference from that PMQs is Truss seems to be an open believer in trickle down economics whereas Johnson had that as his governing philosophy but disguised it under vague populist soundbites. He was also against a windfall tax when it was raised at PMQs months ago but quickly moved on...
  8. What is a modern goalkeeper?

    One big change that is very noticeable is even at the lower league levels goalkeepers no longer simply dropkick and boot the ball high and straight down the middle of the pitch. They now swing their body shape to direct the ball into a wide area and also put some backspin on the ball.
  9. Scott McTominay | 2022/23 Performances

    Ferguson used to have a fascination for a while of having a few games a season when he played a defender in CM. Sometimes it was out of necessity like Phil Neville doing a job on Patrick Vieria (successfully) or when Phil Jones in his younger years was used to be a yard dog. Other times like...
  10. Scott McTominay | 2022/23 Performances

    There were plenty of players like him in the youth ranks when Ferguson was manager. Players who would have got a few games in the league cup and then moved onto a Championship or League One team where they work their way to a respectable career. Most of his appearances came after Mourinho...
  11. Ralf Rangnick's consultancy role has been scrapped

    I think the situation with Rangnick is not worth debating for too long. It seems that Ten Hag did not want to work with him which is why the role was scrapped. I think Rangnick as a manager was hindered by two things. Number one is that the whole world knew from day one that he was only ever...
  12. Martin Tyler

    Yeah I agree. I think he has been past his sell-by-date as a commentator since the Aguero goal and he's been around so long you can watch a game from the 1982-83 season and hear him commentate on players who later sat next to him as a co-commentator. He should have been retired for that reason...
  13. Martin Tyler

    I listen to that program daily and when I heard that and no follow up to clarify by the host I knew he would be in trouble. I believe he sincerely meant to name them as two separate things but it is god awful phrasing from someone who has spent 40 years making a living talking about football. He...
  14. All or Nothing: Arsenal

    Watching these all or nothing documentaries really illuminates how basic top level football really can be. People like us on forums analyse everything to the nth degree, write dissertations about tactics and roles, people who watch games back and take screenshots to illustrate a point .... all...
