    I was about to ask where the CL final is this year, but I'm pretty sure it's not in Spain. And I'm pretty sure his comment was getting things wrong.

    I actually know someone who's transitioning, with the support of various people but not their partner.

    I think everyone did. Walcott sometimes turns while running fast while Lennon only goes in a straight line.

    I've zero surprise about our takeover falling through. Zero. I'm barely even disappointed, the moment it started being "negotiations" I assumed it was going to crap out at some point. £6m for transfers isn't even a budget in today's market, but again, no surprise at all. But tbh, £6/12/15/18m all probably wouldn't be enough to get the players we need. We need a goal-scorer, and we're not going to get one for less than £20m, and we need a goalie, say £8m+. I'm not 100% sure we will go down even if we don't sign anyone. Not that I think we're any good, but I think there's 3 teams worse than us (assuming Rafa sticks til the end of the season). Swansea are fucked, West Brom look as uninterested in the window as we are, then we only need one other to fuck up more than us. People talk about Huddersfield doing better, but they're 1 point ahead with 10 worse GD. There's 7 or 8 teams that are pretty goddamn shit at present.

    While private sector workers tend to get a higher direct salary, there are side benefits to working in the public sector. More job security, pension, days off, flexibility, etc. I don't think the average public sector worker picks their place of employment on a moral rather than selfish basis.

    A generalisation. There's plenty of young people who did vote Brexit, or who've bought into the "immigration hurts our jobs/housing chances".

    Sorry. (not that I didn't know, just generally)

    Vaughan was saying it on TMS in the early hours. Swann was saying similar. Both saying pick a frontline spinner and make Moeen a batting all-rounder and 2nd spinner - which is what he is anyway.

    Definitely, it's nice to expose their weaknesses this test though, after the pain of the last 3. 3-2 would be nice to walk away with, but not getting whitewashed will still be a plus after how the first 3 tests went. I was more referring to the attitude to Moeen and having another spinner alongside him rather than Dawson specifically. The talk about the balance of the side is completely contradicting the same pundits' comments at the start of the SA series. I'm hoping Jack Leach gets a decent run in the side.

    Take one of their best players off the Aussies and give them a pitch that doesn't play to their strengths and they don't look all that. Cook being fantastic again. It's amusing me how all the pundits who were saying 5 months ago "it's ridiculous to play Dawson alongside Ali, of course Moeen is our top spinner" are now saying the exact opposite.

    She could have chosen not to run again, or used the (antiquated) "pairing" system to ensure representation. Considering that my MP Thangam Debonairre got diagnosed with cancer 2 months after winning her seat then was undergoing treatment for nearly 15 months of the last parliament and still had a better attendance record than Mhairi Black is a shocking indictment. The fact she's cited her health as a reason has been used before, but if she really can't represent her constituents she shouldn't be in parliament.
  13. Football 17/18

    Agree with both of the above comments. Still think that while the dramatic tackle has gone out of the game, the quality of top defenders in the Prem has deteriorated

    It's a good day for England but needs to be followed up tomorrow. Bat through at least a session and a half to post a good score.
  15. Football 17/18

    I agree, it's much more about reading the game and positioning and anticipation, but I don't think it's changed dramatically in the last 3-5 years, when there was, IMO, a much higher standard of doing so.
