  1. Watching the highlights on here reminded me of a comment made at the game on Saturday of how much better we did when we were pressing high in midfield. At time (including the led up to the 1st goal) we were swarming all over them and forcing the errors. The work rate and teamwork was the best I have seen for years. And it was all bought together in the last 5 minutes when they had a corner. Joyce, Leggy, Smudge and several others were organizing, encouraging and generally working together - all desperate for a clean sheet. Such a turn around from the last few years and Askey and the players deserve a massive pat on the back for where they have got to from such a bad position.
  2. I don't pretend to understand the history leading to this issue (and suspect that Pope is the same). My take on it is simple - religion, race, gender etc etc mean nothing to me - so I simply don't comment on them unless its strictly necessary. I'd like to think that Popes comments can offend simply because he is either ignorant (in the nicest sense, as am I) or misinformed. Either way, if you don't have substantiating evidence and it could be offensive ... just keep your gob shut! I think that the FA could be cracking down hard on him this time and while i love Tom to bits and will forever be grateful for what he has done for the club, area and supporters, he needs to show a bit more maturity in what he says and when he says it. I actually like his "banter" on Twitter but there are lines and he has to be a bit more careful imo.
  3. Happy to disagree. Your opinion is as valid any anyone elses and I have no issues with your thinking. I just don't agree with you. But all good points to add to a sensible debate based on facts and not rhetoric
  4. I don't think that people believe much that comes out of a politicians mouth these days! I agree that the Eurozone has its challenges (show me a political or economic system that is perfect), but checks and balances created as part of the EU have helped to create a more balanced Europe. People see the "Everyone coming over here" and "we are stopped from doing whatever we want to" headlines ... but do we really trust any of our power hungry PMs (on both sides) to make a better job of it. My fear above all else is the lack of checks that we have now - Boris can pretty much do what he likes as Corbin could have done in the same position - and there is little we can do for 4 years. If what we have been told by remainers is true (and I don't believe half of what is said there either) we don't get that option in 4 years.
  5. Totally happy for you to have your opinion, but as someone who works across the EU with daily access to EU based colleagues in 10 other countries, IMO you are talking bobbins. I have not found a single person from within my company or members of the public that I have spoken to while out and about that have a single bit of understanding of why we would wan to leave - not a single person. I know that ts a small poll and you can probably quote a bigger population, but thats my experience. This isn't a holiday experience, its experience of working in the EU every single day, being involved in the manufacture, export and import of goods and managing a team selling on 10 markets. The EU is NOT perfect, but it keeps things on a level playing field and protects EVERYONES interests. Outside of it I really fear that we will be forced to bow to the direction that any of the superpowers takes. We are all so tied up ion the "we won a war" and "we are a superpower" without thinking that by being in the EU we are a part of a superpower. Outside of it ... we really and truly aren't. However, I will go with the majority (not that I have any choice now :)) and we will have have to deal with whatever the fallout is - or if I am wrong - bask in the glory of Bo Jo and his form of Brexit. But it won't be as quick or easy as he makes out. Whatever happens though, just remember that its what you wanted ... I hope for us all that I am wrong and that you are right.
  6. I listen to these every week. The one with Pope and Roberts are good, but Crosleys is standout and laugh out loud funny! They can get a bit repetitive (which podcasts don't when you listen to one every morning to catch up :)) but well worth a listen and are getting better and better. The hosts are starting to get guests who are not their immediate pals and the stories are getting better. Well worth a subscribe and a listen to the 3 very vale related ones plus selected others (including Crosley!)
