  1. Marcus Rashford | 2019/20 Performances

    19 goals in 30 games, 5 assists, second top scorer in the premier and only 22 but a season average rating of 5.6 on here? Tough crowd.
  2. Iran v US confrontation

    If soldiers have died there's no way Trump doesn't escalate this. I certainly wouldn't trust his military advisors to temper the response either. After all, the Soleimani incident was not Trump's idea.
  3. Iran v US confrontation

    If there are dead US troops from this its hard to imagine Trump's response being anything but disproportionate. The only saving grace here is the American's will have excellent defence systems in place which should reduce the impact and lead to a more tempered response. If not, then, well the...
  4. So let's talk about Eddie Howe....

    How many West Ham managers have came through that job with a better reputation in recent times? The expectations tend to far outweigh the reality.
  5. Tyrone Mings

    I mean we're going back over 20 years now with those names. It's not that they've never had good players its just that they've apparently constantly got 3, 4, 5 elite players in their side yet mysteriously never look anything more than a mid-table team or worse side outperformed by sides with...
  6. Tyrone Mings

    Its what I refer to as the West Ham paradox - a team with plenty of players apparently worth of the top 4 constantly underperforming despite being stocked with elite players. Or more likely just media overhype of the individuals. Grealish seems the real deal, the other two are merely decent...
  7. Tyrone Mings

    It's remarkable Villa are sitting 1 point above the relegation zone when apparently about half their team are 50m+ players.....
  8. Is this the best (most promising) England squad (inc manager) we've had?

    The lionizing of the golden generation to castigate the current generation is among the more bizarre oddities of the current stereotypical cynical England "fan". The fact is the golden generations best performance at a tournament has already been beaten by a weaker version of the current...
  9. Climate Change

    Zero by 2050 is the basis for 1.5 degree change by 2100, its a reasonable target that is the basis for something that can be achieved while still minimising damage. Zero by 2025 is impossible. It is a utterly ridiculous target. You could elect the Green Party tomorrow and it would still be...
  10. Climate Change

    Extinction Rebellion need to take a step back and re-assess what they're actually trying to achieve. At the moment it seems very disjointed thinking and ideas and more of a club for middle class protesters who want to tick civil disobedience off their bucket list. For starters the demand for...
  11. 2020 US Presidential Elections | Nevada Caucus 22 Feb

    Can someone please explain to me how if the furthest left candidate couldn't win the Democrate primaries, how he would somehow fare best of all actual candidates among all voters? If Democrate voting moderates don't want him, there isn't a chance he's the best bet among swing voters. There's...
  12. 2020 US Presidential Elections | Nevada Caucus 22 Feb

    I mean its a hell of a reach that if Biden is getting that, Sanders will be immune to the same attacks after this. Regardless I do find it extremely amusing people have genuinely deluded themselves into thinking that if Sanders couldn't win the Democrat Candidacy, which by its nature is much...
  13. 2020 US Presidential Elections | Nevada Caucus 22 Feb

    I mean I think they're both much too old for the candidacy, but are Sanders supporters really still going for the Biden's falling apart line after Sanders is in hospital after heart surgery? The lack of self awareness is astonishing. Particularly after all the grief Clinton got when she fainted.
  14. Brexited

    And yet all the ERG members who rebelled on May was also essentially a vote of confidence..... History will judge May's deal kindly I think - though a lot of what she did up to that point also made the situation far worse than it had to be, and her election campaign of no deal is better than a...
  15. Graeme Sourness

    Comparing Jermain Defoe to Drogba would be odd and probably skin based. Suggesting the only similarities between Lukaku and Drogba is skin colour and that must be lazy stereotyping is a hell of a reach.
