  1. There is some utter nonsense spouted on this thread.
  2. It is nice to see you back with your words of wisdom Captain Jeff. May one enquire if Sting may also be reconnecting with us shortly?
  3. And he is now back on loan at Morecambe again (from Burnley).
  4. I would have almost certainly agreed with you if I did not pay the occasional visit to Morecambe FC. They actually make their own pies which are extremely good and having one is part of the matchday experience. It was estimated when they were in League 2 over half the crowd had a pie. There are lots of kiosks to buy them at and peas and gravy are provided free of charge at separate serving stations to speed things up. You can comfortably get in the queue and have your pie well before the second half starts. I never eat at Vale but I do at Morecambe. A quality product, readily available and as a result very popular.
  5. Wow, I was not expecting an existential debate on OVF. I was merely pointing out that I thought the referee was consistent in his decision-making, rightly or wrongly.
  6. If he had sent their player off I think he would have been obliged to give Smith a second yellow for a late tackle near the halfway line.
  7. I think a NOW TV day pass for £9.98 would do it legally?
  8. When watching live you see things you do not see on the television. When we played City I noticed they would get in the position to make a cutback but would only do it if they could effectively pass the ball to someone already in or arriving in the box. If they could not they would just recycle it back and pass it around until they could next get near the byeline. Our method seems different in that we hit the cutback as low and hard as we can make it without necessarily picking out a player. Presumably it is to the players to put themselves where they think the cutback will arrive. It certainly seems to work. It also seems to be part of the pre-match warm up which is not something I have seen before. As Joe says it is all designed to be instinctive.
  9. I have never agreed politically with RB but always found his posts coherent and worth reading to discover an alternative viewpoint logically argued. But his posts have become a bit weird recently. Can we have the old RB back please?
  10. I never actually worked out where Politic was playing yesterday. In the first half, Cass who was then definitely meant to be centre-back, was overlapping down the right wing. When Cass went to wing back in the second half there were occasions when Smith was ahead of him. How are opposition managers meant to counter this during a game? What will Crawley's scout go back and report with regard to their preparation for next week? Such fluidity is not going to work every game but when it does it must be very difficult to counter.
  11. The BBC article says trade from Asia to the USA is up about 25% compared to 2019 and not as quoted above. It does not mention Brexit.
  12. There is actually an article on delays at USA ports on the BBC news website.
  13. At Wolves in the 1990's I went through the turnstiles to be met by a police officer who frisked me. He asked me to remove the object out my coat pocket and I pulled out my dog's chain metal lead. He then said "not brought your dog with you today, sir?", I replied "no, not today" and he then let me put it back in my pocket and walk on to my seat with what could be a lethal weapon. Never understood the point of a search after that.
  14. You may not like his commentary, that is your opinion. But do you need to be so gratuitously and unpleasantly rude?
  15. Nonsense. I was born here and have lived my whole life here. I like it and am happy to tell people as much. Why do have to wave the Union Jack or worship the Queen to be patriotic? We have freedom of speech and thought. That is one of the joys of being British.
  16. I would be surprised if any of them get to the start.
  17. Except this Saturday? I think international breaks do not count so we can watch the Rochdale game on ifollow. Certainly used to be the case.
  18. Oh dear. Do I get the impression Wilson grew up a Stoke fan?
  19. Sunny, so have you finally realised that the reason you voted for Brexit has absolutely nothing to do with Brexit?
  20. I thought Garritty was totally anonymous yesterday in the first half until I noticed that he was constantly looking around to see where Spearing was. If his role was actually to ensure that Spearing did not run the game then he achieved it very well. I too like the look of our new recruits. They just need to gel, gain a little confidence together which hopefully will allow them to play with a bit more freedom and this could be a very interesting season. And Wilson's first touch is a level way above League 2. The powers that be just need to work out how to involve him more but the pedigree shines through.
  21. Bagpipes! Horrendous! I thought you were being unfairly picked on by people but you have now lost any sympathy from me.
  22. Not politically correct but my dad always said it was an excellent tune for running away.
