  1. I hope you're right about Bryson, but since the Burnley/improved contract fiasco, he's simply not been the same player - odd flashes of his old self, but simply not consistent enough to hold down a place. Irvine may not be as good as Bryson at his best, but he's possibly better than the version of Bryson we've seen for the past few seasons - and it's a big risk for GR to rely on a player who seems to have lost his way....
  2. At least McDonnell has come out and asked that they keep the protest peaceful - not that some involved are likely to pay any attention to someone as right-wing as they probably consider him to be.....
  3. It's a quote from the Marxist muppets organising the protest - somehow I knew that you'd be in favour of their aims (whatever the potential consequences and despite the Grenfell community condemning the march - something that comrade Corbyn has so far refused to do....)
  4. Militant groups led by the "Movement for Justice By Any Means Necessary" are planning a march on Parliament tomorrow in order to escalate their attempts "to take down this rotten government" - to quote the Kaiser Chiefs, I predict a riot.....
  5. Mourinho accused of tax fraud in Spain when he was in charge of Real Madrid - needs to have a word with Harry and Rosie.... http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-europe-40339788
  6. Redmond's a weird one - when he was young and fairly unknown, he looked great for the U21s - since he's become higher profile, he seems to spend far too much time moaning (to officials and his team-mates) - almost as if being a PL player has gone to his head and he's now too self-important to play with the 'kids'.... I'm also getting increasingly naffed off with the Sky commentator - constantly praising the Chelsea players (for doing very little) and repeating comments like "the team are suffering from the same issue as the seniors - a lack of quality in the middle of the park" - well they have the quality, but he's sitting on the bench because he wears the wrong domestic shirt and the manager hasn't got the balls to pick him ahead of the high-profile 'stars'.....
  7. Worryingly Boothroyd thought it was a great performance - picked out Redmond and Chalobah as two of the best players. Now they both improved slightly over the first game, but it seems that Boothroyd has very low expectations of the team if he's satisfied with that performance...
  8. I'm happy to have Baird as a squad player, but if he's first choice right-back by the time the transfer window closes, I'd be worried about our chances for the season - solid player that he's been, he's not good enough to play a whole season for a team wanting to push for promotion....
  9. I think you missed the target of my comment....
  10. Bit strong...you may not agree with 1of4, but calling him names is not on - he's entitled to his opinion....
  11. Perhaps it's just me, but I really don't see what Chalobah brings to the table - yes he's got the physical attributes, but he doesn't seem to have a footballing brain - he also seems to be fairly lazy - though he is a Chelsea player so I suppose Boothroyd would be scared to leave him out....
  12. He probably won't be too chuffed if it says 'STOUT' (though Martin will be fine)
  13. Wow people do talk out of their backsides at times - I've not suggested it because I want the Tories to win, simply that there's very little hope of the country being able to progress with the current situation - and additionally, I'm not keen on UK government policy being dictated by a bunch of terrorist sympathisers with an outlook on life set sometime in the 17th century... Minority governments simply aren't effective and can paralyse the country - just at the time we need to be able to react quickly to Brexit issues. If you're happy for the country to go down the toilet just to prove a point to the 'Tories and Theresa', then you probably need to reassess your priorities... As for the EU, they've said that they're happy to wait as long as necessary for negotiations to start, however whenever they start, they will end 2 years after article 50 was triggered....
  14. No idea - but it's not going to help get the power-sharing arrangements back on track if Sinn Féin think that the DUP have more 'clout' than them due to their support for the UK government. Hate to say,it, but we need another election rather than try to muddle through with the proposed Tory/DUP agreement (and before anyone jumps in, Labour may have done far better than they could have possibly imagined, but they don't have any sort of mandate to govern - a minority government with Corbyn in charge would be a disaster....)
  15. Chap from Armagh on Radio 5 this morning - suggested that a deal with the DUP would help 'reset the UK's moral compass' - good grief.....
