Re: The US sports thread

Edelman took his punishment for the drugs offence, though he’s not the only one in the league whose been caught out by it. He was coming off a complete ACL tear though so he was always up against it. Can’t defend him for taking a shortcut but as said, he served his punishment. That said, he’s been d...

Re: Rumours, wishlists and general tomfoolery

If feel we’d be better served by a bigger target man than a smaller poacher in this window. Graham has been brilliant in his hold up play, bringing Dack and Armstrong along, so someone like a Gestede or a Carroll would be a great shout. Would love to see Rudy back!

Re: Mike Harrison R.I.P.

Here here Gibbon, I love reading about it. Tell me Duggy, what are your memories of Bobby Saxton? He’s a relative of mine, infact my dad had a trial for him when he was at Plymouth I believe. A family favour, he didn’t get the job obviously! 😂 My dad was an old school centre half, built like a brick...

Re: The US sports thread

Bet the Saints are a bit pissed off.... Patriots in the Superb Owl again. :boring: Both games were incredible tbh, though the Saints have a genuine gripe with that call. It could have been pass interference, defenceless receiver, targeting and they call nothing. Unbelievable bottle job by the offic...

Re: Brexit....or in.

Agreed, I’m all for proportional representation and perhaps a shakeup of the traditional parties. I’m very much a socialist and for me, the Labour Party is a left-wing, socialist party by nature. The party and the cause, fighting for a fairer society for me is far bigger and more important than any ...

Re: Brexit....or in.

He didn’t force a no confidence vote because he’s content to let the Tory party rip itself apart (which is literally what it’s doing given this mornings news). He only gets one shot at a no confidence vote and as is stands the DUP would vote alongside the Tories against it and it would also unite a ...

Re: Brexit....or in.

Labour have for months now had 6 factors that must be passed by any Brexit deal, most important of all is protecting jobs and workers rights through frictionless trade. Something that May’s deal doesn’t do. Kier Starmer is the minister responsible for that, and a damn fine politician, but Corbyn has...

Re: Brexit....or in.

I’d argue a good amount of those 17m people voted leave on the back of the circa £350m extra funding for the NHS a week that was proven pretty quickly after the referendum to be a complete lie. The NHS is rightfully beloved by the British people, they aren’t stupid, they know it’s stretched to capac...

Re: Wigan v Blackburn Rovers, Wed 28th Nov 2018, KO 19:45

I always ignore the idiots who comment on LT articles, the vast majority are from the same tiresome Burnley fan with too much time on his hands.

Rich Sharpe is a bright point though. As a reporter, I genuinely rate him. Find his match commentary quite good too.

Re: Blackburn Rovers v Leeds United, Sat 20 Oct 2018, KO 12:00

A good friend of mine who is a Nottingham Forest fan said to me “Why were you using Brereton on the wing? He’s shit on the wing” I personally thought given his size and talent he’d be an able replacement for Danny Graham, but alas Mowbray doesn’t see that. He banged in most of his goals as a striker...

So bizarrely the Chinese super league game is on live tomorrow lunchtime whilst our game is a red-button affair. Scratching my head at that one tbh :? Why? Stupid money in the Chinese league and money is all that tv sport is about. Surely the championship audience in the UK is bigger though. This. ...

Re: The US sports thread

Also that Pats be Chiefs game was every bit as good as I thought and hoped it would be. Offense is so overwhelmingly OP this year due to all the contact penalties, ridiculous roughing the passer penalties etc. See Tom Brady’s touchdown run for how ridiculous it’s become. Defender has him wrapped up,...

Re: The US sports thread

Any of you interested in trading for JuJu Smith-Schuster, WR? He’s been pretty productive, just I’ll never play him due to the CPU drafting both him and Antonio Bryant together :x

Looking for a equally productive RB2 or WR2 in return
