  • Is CBD oil a drug? Or at least, is it clearly labelled as such in Dubai/UAE law?
  • Feels like the country is going down a really dangerous road. Given the political atmosphere of the last few years, the complete lack of course correction (in terms of political dialogue) following Jo Cox's murder and the inherent difficulty of...

    This is nonsense though. If a parent of twins gives one twin a cookie every day and the other twin a slap every day, you'd struggle to argue that they're being treated equally on the grounds that the first twin is screaming just as loudly for...

    When Chris Morris did that interview where he said comedy needed a 'point' or it's just like a supplicant putting on a show to please the court he couldn't have asked for a better example than the new Spitting Image. I've never seen a show with...
  • Can the result not be 50% judges decision and 50% fans in the stadium voting with a button/on the app?
  • Van De Beek's issues are twofold. Our midfield two are largely there to break up play, cover ground and generally do the dirty work so the rest can concentrate on attack, and the three we play behind the striker are there for their dynamism and...
  • jeff_goldblum replied to the thread Keir Starmer Labour Leader.
    I can't help but think that the people who keep reminding us that New Labour won from the centre are missing that the exciting stuff about New Labour's offering which enthused voters at the time, and which forms the backbone of the defence of New...
  • jeff_goldblum replied to the thread Pogba is not a left winger.
    I'm not sure I've seen anything from Pogba to suggest he can consistently play at anywhere near his best in a midfield two regardless of who is in there with him. He's at his best operating in the final third with a top holding player and a...
  • In fairness it's something Dalot is actually pretty good at and part of his natural game. If Cavani or Ronaldo had played he'd probably have gotten an assist. He stopped in the second half though so presumably Ole or one of the coaches gave him a...
  • jeff_goldblum replied to the thread Keir Starmer Labour Leader.
    Yeah like I say, the parachuting in of candidates by the leadership is annoying regardless who is doing it. Our previous MP was parachuted in as as an ideological ally of Blair, our current MP was parachuted in as an ideological ally of Corbyn...
  • My main takeaway from the game is how important it is to have a proper striker with some presence. Even if they don't score, having someone like Cavani or Ronaldo in the box forces the opposition to mark them and forces them to close down our...
  • Not too annoyed by that. Conceded because of a series of individual mistakes by second string players, on another day we'd have had a penalty and finished some of those chances. Biggest issue for me is Martial, he's clearly in the shop window but...
  • jeff_goldblum replied to the thread Keir Starmer Labour Leader.
    The left wanted mandatory reselection, which would allow local members of all political stripes more say in who they spend their time campaigning for rather than mates/ideological bedfellows of the leadership being foisted on CLPs (especially in...
  • jeff_goldblum replied to the thread Keir Starmer Labour Leader.
    In short, yes - the bulk of 'the left' backed Starmer in the leadership election precisely because he presented himself as the unity candidate. If the left hadn't been willing to compromise he wouldn't have won. By any standard, over the last 7...
  • It's a bind for Ole. We don't have one single central midfielder good enough defensively (in terms of mobility and positioning) to hold the fort solo or to partner Pogba in a midfield 2, so he plays from the left where usually we'd probably have...
