    Football 18/19

    Do you think it's fair the difference in spending power between Man City and Huddersfield? There is nothing fair about football! My impression is that all football fans think more decisions go against them, than for them. My understanding of maths tells me that can't be true!

    Do people understand that VAR will correct opponents incorrect decisions as well as your own team? For most sides there will be no benefit in terms of points over a season.

    Unfortunately I feel both government and opposition leadership are trying to run down the clock. It's time to get behind a peoples vote and stop those on both sides getting the hard Brexit they want.

    I wonder how well the attitude era would translate to someone looking at it today. I would find it hard to explain why the likes of too cool, Al Snow, Rikishi, Godfather (admittedly non PG character) etc were so over. It was very much for it's time.

    With Christmas season approaching. Anyone read any good football books recently?

    You sound like a politician on election night!

    The constituency labour party of Luciana Berger have written a public letter condemning her for supporting a vote of no confidence against the government and a peoples vote, on the basis that it isn't what the grand leader supports. Interestingly it looks like they haven't written a public letter condemning the vile sexist and anti semetic abuse she has had to put up with in recent years.

    The trouble is change the leader and its just a different leader being humiliated because they cant get anything that can pass through parliament. The only solution is a peoples vote and labour must now take the lead on proposing this.

    I think the truth is that she is weakened by the vote of confidence. However its difficult to take a position where vote of confidences results only matter depending on whether you like the leader or not.

    Disappointing, I previously thought she was one of the better people in the shadow cabinet. Labour members must stop being told what to think and make their voice heard.

    It's not really a crack at Jez, just the reality of the situation. While the labour leader can focus on the general disarray, it's difficult for him to focus on a vote of no confidence which is way higher than the vote he go (would get himself) again. For the sake of consistency I believe neither May or Corbyn have enough support within their MPs to be an effective leader/pm.

    For all the talk about May agreeing not to fight another election, I think few thought that an option anyway. I expected May to get less votes of no confidence. However it's a difficult vote for labour to make political capital from when their leader would dream of 2/3 support from MPs.

    I thought she had a pretty easy ride. As John Pienaar said on the radio it's hard for Corbyn to go hard on the vote of no confidence when his Mps have done similar.

    Looking at the response so far from Tory mps (providing what they say and think is the same) I can't see it being particularly close. Then again I thought Remain and Hillary would win !

    Well using labour 2017 logic, a narrow loss is a victory!

    The parliamentary arithmetic is what it is, I don't see how a leadership change will help. The same problems will still exist.

    I don't think there will be a general election. Even if there was I think most people think Corbyn and May are both useless and won't hand either a significant majority, resulting in gridlock. I think a peoples vote could be popular, if no deal is the alternative. At present labour are offering no realistic alternative.

    Labour need to get behind the peoples vote and then they can offer a realistic alternative. That may hurt Corbyns feelings, but we cannot make the poor poorer so relatively well of people like Jezza can see an ideological dream come true. At present nobody with any sense believes labour can negotiate what they say, the EU would never agree to it.

    It doesn't help May. The trouble is I don't think the public feel PM Corbyn or PM Boris would be any less farcical driving the process forward. While it is easy to criticise May, I am yet to hear a logical argument why on alternative (taking their current approach) would do any better.

    True, you could also argue that the media may not choose a black footballer as their future golden boy

    Playing devil's advocate. Could the fact that Foden is" the English next big thing" impact on the coverage, I personally hadn't heard of the other bloke.

    In terms of his job I would have thought it wouldn't be a case of choosing who to believe, but would need evidence.

    I think not just the fact he is black, but his background.I suspect a black person from a private school upbringing would be treated differently.

    Isn't there also a factor that some players are more willing to play the media game. I'm thinking the likes of Gerrard, Kane, post 98 Beckham and that's why they get an easier ride.
