Re: England Squad

First final in 55 years! :hyper: Back to that familiar feeling that we were going to throw it all away again last night. No doubt those who think we're doing everything right will point to the result as "proof" the right decisions were made. As with the Ukraine game, we got in front by co...

Re: England Squad

I'm guessing opinions on Sterling have changed since the World Cup? Whilst we won the game, can't say I was happy with the excessively negative line up. Our defence looked confused as to who was supposed to be picking up which runner, and we gave away enough openings for the score to be different. ...

I'd be happy if they just voted for people who don't give billions of our money to their mates. But we may be straying from the point.
The problem there is that you're just described a typical politician.

Re: Euro Super League

Funny innit. Almost as funny as those who are getting called out for being against the kill the bill protests but who protested here...

Re: Euro Super League

Which I guess is why it is hard to care that much personally. There is already such an insurmountable chasm between the few and the rest domestically that this will only formalise it. It also brings the danger of making those few rather irrelevant but that really doesn't bother me. It might actuall...

Do you think you two can manage to be in the same room without bickering? Brian and I are organising a poker night in a getting the band back together type way.
Will depend when it is really; have a two week old bambino so need to be on hand to help!
