I need Gostkowski to forget where the ball is or something.
So tight a game. If the Patriots score and punt and don’t kick field goals you could sneak it too. Only 1 point for an XP.

Energy companies!!!

Ok so, I moved out of a house nearly 3 years ago, that house is my elderly nans who is sadly in a care home with late-stage Alzheimer’s. When I left, I was especially careful to clear up every lose end with utility companies etc and got my final bill through for my gas/electric. Ensured all applianc...

And in parody of the Boston Celtics arena announcer... Samuel for THREEEEEEEEEE!!! 3-0 Rovers after 20 minutes! Graham with the assist.

SAG or GAS? Neither one sounds too catchy for these two!

Anyone else almost feel sorry for Crewe? Naaaahh

Re: ROVERS vs Bristol Rovers. Sat Nov 25th 3pm

I have a good feeling about today, hopefully another quick start and an early goal. We play so much more expansive and confident after the early goal. Going 3-0 Rovers, Dack, Nuttall and Antonssen. Also, Whittingham is starting on the wing in place of Bennett, his favoured position I believe. Will b...

Re: General Election

It’s debatable as to who it hurts most, I’d argue we’d both be in a worse situation as so much of our trade goes to each other. This is precisely why the far-right Tories pushing a hard or no deal Brexit are so terrifying. The point is though, for access to the single market we’d still need to accep...

Re: General Election

No offense taken but I disagree, I’m no economist but I do know enough. I know that cutting yourself off from tariff free trade across a huge trading bloc like the EU to “go it solo” is economic suicide. I also believe we lack the international clout to get deals on our terms, as the horrendously il...

Re: General Election

Its the charming, Dickensian notion that we will somehow get our Empire back by leaving the EU that amuses and saddens me in equal measure. We just lost our place on the UN’s ICJ (international court of justice) for the first time since its inception in 1946, to India no less and it wasn’t a friendl...

Re: Sack race

I imagine he will be eyeing up the Wales job now or may have already been after the Coleman news.

I’ve always found something a bit twattish about him to be honest and his football is on a par with Allardyce in entertainment terms *yaaawn*

Re: The US sports thread

Pity you played Hunt really. Yeah Kansas are completely imploding. Took time but teams have more video now on Hunt/Smith/Hill and it’s showing. What a weekend for both leagues though, Philly dominated again, the Vikes showed their class and the Saints keep on rolling. The title I feel is going to t...

Wow, I don’t think I’ve ever had a FF performance like that!

Never had so many points from a defense or a kicker. Remarkable!

Re: The US sports thread

Two weeks in a row I’ve benched a player whose then had a career day. First T. Y. Hilton and now Mark Ingram. If I lose this matchup I’ve only got myself to blame. Jesus 😞

Re: General Election

He misspoke and said she had been “training journalists” to a committee in Westminster (which is actually what the Iranians accuse her of) before correcting himself and saying correctly that she was on a family holiday, which was the truth. However Iran have directly used his words, which as a man i...
