Like a lot of these things we have the US to thank. There’s nothing positive for the Tories to campaign on so their cheerleaders in the media/social media pump out this ‘they’re all the same’ nonsense and people are mug enough to believe it or want to believe it. It gives the Galloway rabble a similar stick to beat Labour with and completely ignores the bloke’s record before and during politics. It’s boring and predictable but it works.

Eze for England!
at 14:34 29 May 2024

There’s probably an exception to the rule I’m missing but City players don’t tend to play well for England. Foden is a wonderful player but rarely seems to be at the same level for England (off a small sample size) and Grealish seems to be having the flair coached out of him. When Sterling was doing well for them you wouldn’t see it a lot for England.

Walker I guess but then he’s quite un-Guardiola for a Guardiola team.

He played a few games for Luton towards the end of the season too. Looked great a few years back. 27, can play a few positions and brings a bit of pace we still lack. We’ve made worse signings.

A lot changes in 13 years. I think there’s a lot more appetite for something more representative now after the nonsense we’ve had in that time. Young people who would benefit more from a different system are far more politically engaged than I was at that age in 2011.

I wouldn’t say it’s a moan. There are big-spending teams the fans like. There were just quite a few knobheads in that squad who got dragged over the line by a mistake and some heroic defending.

I don’t really buy into this, especially with FPTP and binning FPTP would improve turnout.

I know Doyle played for us but can’t remember him doing anything at all. Apparently scored twice.

Zamora was woeful overall. Staggeringly poor Dykesesque goal return even in the second tier. Quite liked Onuoha but think that was more as a bloke than a player as he was often crap. Some personal issues IIRC with his mum dying unless that was someone else.

I won’t have a bad word said against Austin in that first spell though.

Plenty of ST holders buying £30 tickets and flogging them on too I assume as there are loads of them in the away ends too now. I think at a home game at the big clubs you have to accept it’s a global game now (though disgraceful 99% of local residents are probably never setting foot in the ground). Maybe I’m old-fashioned but away matches should be sacred.

Nothing will ever match old-fashioned grounds but as new megastadia go it’s by far the best. It’s what the new Wembley should have been.

Good player too at Blackburn.

I think (hope anyway) he meant that’ll be the rhetoric they go for which I expect it will be but there are somehow still people who buy it.

I think most would just rather avoid the embarrassment and have something cushy lined up.

Doubt he’s consulted any of the people he’d have to to get some idea of how this would work. Just nonsense made up off the back of a panicked meeting and maybe a couple of focus groups to desperately woo a few Express readers.

Do any of them ever really speak for any of us? There’s never been a perfect political party for me in my lifetime. I just pick the one that’s closest or, thanks to our archaic voting system, has the best chance of beating the one that’s least close.

Fortunately I now live in one of the places the Tories might as well not run in so it’s between Labour and Greens. Wasn’t a fan of the Greens anyway but less so now they’ve attracted an assortment of cranks.

Starmer isn’t exciting but then I don’t want politicians to be exciting. He’s achieved a lot in his life without being dealt a brilliant hand and it’ll be nice to just have a sensible adult in charge. It’ll need two terms to get even close to sorting out and I doubt he’ll fancy the second of those but I really hope the lot in now are done for a long long time.

The rats are deserting but hopefully we get a few big names crying in a leisure centre somewhere.

Maybe he’s changed but he was very much one who liked the footballer lifestyle a tad too much at one time.

Wrexham v Birmingham is already confirmed as being played abroad.

Germany would. They know the fans will lynch them if they don’t. I expect Spain will be first to go and we won’t be too far behind.

Wolves v Fulham in Doha. The locals will be buzzing.

Realistic signings everyone would target?
at 10:21 14 May 2024

If Chair and/or Willock goes I’d like Sorba Thomas. From London, good age, seemed to carry that Hudds team on his own (much like Chair) at times.

I’m a bit wary of relegated players but for him and Rudoni I’d make an exception. Not sure about the Rotherham goalkeeper but everyone insists he’s a top player and will go somewhere bigger than us. Can’t say I’ve seen it when he’s played us or I’ve seen them on the box.

injuries
at 09:57 14 May 2024

I’m not calling for fewer games (just get on with it, we used to do 100 hours in t’pit then play on a Saturday etc.) and injuries are just part of the game. You don’t get many broken legs these days and shin pads aren’t going to do a lot for ACLs and muscle strains/tears which must be the majority of injuries.
