Re: Blackburn Rovers v Bristol City, Sat 9 Feb 2019, KO 15:00

I was impressed with Bristol yesterday. Extremely solid and organised outfit. We barely had a sniff. Some of the nonsense I heard from our fans walking away from the ground really did annoy me. The expectations some fans have for this season are outrageous. If the season was to stop now I for one w...

Re: Brexit....or in.

...and? 13.8 million to a company who have no ships and their T&C’s copy and pasted from a fast food website ? Is some of the £13.8 million going to be used to buy ships? :hyper: Didn’t the P&O Spirit of Britain cost £157 million? ;) Is the only investment in this company from the Government? https...

Re: House buying

Oh man, if you have a housebuying experience that isn't like fighting a sack full of crabs then I'd be surprised. One of the most stressful undertakings I've ever experienced, and I've done it 3 times. It's worse when you're trying to sell too. Good luck mate. That'll be me! 6 weeks done and dusted...

I thought this was an interesting piece on Edelman, the NFL and American sports approach to winning at any cost.
Yep, sums up the most of it.

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 ...

Pretty much... Yay Edelman the drugs cheat... etc.

Pretty dull superbowl really... defence was impressive on both sides but ultimately Rams just weren't at the races... and whatever happened to Gurley pretty much sealed the deal before the playoffs.
Edelman looked absolutely wired as well.

Re: Brexit....or in.

That's always been the arrogance of the approach by many politicians. They simply don't want to accept that there are a whole lot of people who don't want to be in the EU, for all sorts of reason. That include things such as racism, xenophobia and so on, but also include things such as wanting to tr...

Re: Brexit....or in.

But don't you see you employ the exact same tone? You start off preaching and then get uppity when someone makes a personal jibe in retaliation to one of your own . Grow a thicker skin and be less hypocritical for God's sake. ;) And whoopdidoo, you have a 20 year old economics a level. So you're sa...

Re: Brexit....or in.

Meanwhile, and somewhat unsurprisingly, the EU declines to reopen talks after the UK has shown it's hand last night that we don't want to leave without a deal. What a shock. Who knew our politicians were idiots? And the EU ones too. Neither side has shown a duty of care to their citizens. It could ...

Re: Brexit....or in.

Personal jibes? Where, exactly? Oh wait, no I did point out, again, that you approach every argument, ever, with the firm belief that it's impossible for you to ever be wrong, ever. Did I say ever enough? I'm not quite sure. The only misconception would be around any doubt over what the trade tarif...
