    Brexit voters need to push to have EPL clubs dropped from the Champions League too. Go all the way, do it.

    "After most of Manchester City, Liverpool and Spurs squads were asked to leave the country following Brexit, United have walked the league..."

    Less quality competition from overseas means less talent (and hard work) required for local players to reach the top of the English game. It would make the national team weaker, not stronger.

    Fact is that we have no clue of what immigration policy the UK will adopt after Brexit for special talents across all sectors. We are debating against an unknown.

    I don't read the Daily Mail and more importantly i didn't even vote to leave. And when someone replies with an insult instead of challenging ponits raised, it's because they know they can't argue against the hard facts. So, don't believe me, just check for yourself Labours record on unemployment, debt, Dennis Healey having to go cap in hand to the IMF with Labour making us the sick man of Europe. Just check yourself the outright racist comments Labour MP Clive Lewis made about non white Tory cabinet ministers. I'm just another Labour voter that's been driven away by a bunch of hard left extrmeists destroying a once great party, as many others have been.

    Given the likelihood of No Deal we really should have kept Lukaku. The upcoming food shortages would hopefully have made him more effective.

    You cite Healey and the IMF and Labour's record on debt and unemployment but you said you were a Labour voter up until now? Doesn't that mean you voted Labour in the 1970s and 1980s during the winter of discontent and the leadership of Michael Foot? Can I ask why those didn't push you away?

    Driven away into the arms of who? Presumably, seeing as you're so concerned about racism youll stay away from Boris Johnson and anything to do with Farage.

    Of course - and your total export to the EU is only 46% of your entire export (about £290 billion) - why would you even need a deal with the EU ? It will work out - you can use the £350 million you were promised would go to the NHS. Oh right - they don't exist :)

    Best of a rum lot to choose from. Democrats have been dire since Clinton was in office. Same as Labour with Blair.

    And nobody has ever said we don't need a deal with the EU, so what are you on about? Trade deals will be done and you know it. Everything will work out fine, so stop worrying and scaremongering!

    Thinking Trump is the best President from the current candidates completely invalidates any opinion you have on anything.

    I never said anything about the national team. You're right, it would make it weaker (initially). My main (only) concern is domestic leagues in need of domestic talent not being gutted of aforementioned talent by rich clubs who will not use them anyway. If there was a max of 3 non-domestic players per squad, teams would be far more discerning of which foreign talent they bring in. Meaning that far more talent stay in their domestic league, enhancing the quality of that league - where exposure, sponorship and money will eventually follow.

    I can't stand modern "top league" European football, it's a farcical load of shite.

    Whatever one's opinions on Brexit are, I completely agree that United not being able to sign certain players is a very childish argument against it.

    Brexit has a point, and is not to be dictated what to do by Germany, a country that doesn't even know how to deal with the 'refugee problem' that Ms.Merkel allowed to happen in her country.

    If you're not filthy rich and you voted for brexit you're almost certainly a bit racist or a bit thick.

    Exactly, and the same is happening in Sweden.

    But when people read that, they only scream 'racism', zero arguments.

    Not sure if this is tongue in cheek but regardless I really despise this pucker cheeked attitude from many Brexiteers, happy to trash many communal things for the sake of something that many people who enjoy those communal things don't want.

    I don't understand why anyone who voted for Brexit can't simply have their taxes increased to cover its various costs themselves, whilst people that don't want it don't receive such a negative burden that they never asked for.

    Well its racist to suggest a rise in crime and terror is linked to immigration without backing it up statistically. Which is what they've done. The tories took 20000 police off the streets over the last ten years and now we're supposed to cheer because they've said they'd restore the status quo from 2009. Bravo. That probably led to a rise in crime eh?

    Not to mention the terrorist attacks we feared not so long ago came from the ira and "islamic terror" became an issue for us after we got into bed with bush. Even since then we've had our fair share of white terrorism as well.

    Its just very selective with nothing to back it up. Smells of an agenda.

    And considering our population pyramid the uk badly needs a good rate of immigration to pay for all the fecking pensioners.

    Aye, Stephen Ireland worked hard to come over here and steal jobs from the English. It's about time these Europeans fecked off and learned we're the ones stealing jobs around here. Brexit ain't getting rid of us, we'll be stealing all the jobs now.

    Just out of curiosity, if Brexit happens, what do you believe are the advantages of it? Just want to know your thoughts.

    Human rights act will be abolished and people like him will be able to freely commit hate crimes. Brexit wasn't, isn't and never will be about economic anxiety- that's a lie contradicted by evidence and one concocted by white remainers to shield them from introspection.

    Woke af. In fact I just stood up and clapped.

    I don't think we need to worry about assault being legalised, even with a No Deal. Then again we are on a forum where people think wearing a sombrero to a Halloween party is a hate crime so perhaps our definitions are a little different.

    Brexit was always about economic anxiety just not the anxiety of the poor and working class who voted for it but the anxiety of the Rees-Moggs, Banks, Odeys Rothermeres, Barclays & Murdochs who stand to be crucified under anti tax avoidance legislation by the EU next January.

    Not really, football is extremely important culturally and for many very personally. For example with myself, I hope to have a successful life in every way that you may say is important, but I will also remember Leicester winning the Premier League forever.
