  1. Pulling our current shit show of a government up for the absolute shit show they've precided over isn't depressing. Speaking and fighting for change with a proper plan and backing the people to do it isn't depressing. Blindly backing the most corrupt and inept government in our history is 100% depressing. This weird little conservative little Englander bullshit shit that's led us off a cliff edge is depressing. Imagine backing this lot then all of a sudden jumping into bed with Nigel bloody Farage and his dogmatic politics. Now that is depressing.

  2. Really good night in the end that, held in good spirits as well. Evatt, as always to be fair to him, spoke well and came across far more humbled than I've seen or heard him before. Sam, for all his perceived faults, was good value for a few laughs even if he had clearly had a few G&Ts by the end! Questions were asked from the audience but on queue cards so nothing to cringe or unnecessarily critical obviously. Got mine answered, wrote about how they've both been criticised (unfairly in my eyes at times) for their styles of play and how that's affected them both. Sam's answer actually genuinely made me a bit emotional for a moment, he spoke at length how he regretted letting the media paint him as a long ball manager and how he's felt that at times limited him either from roles or his staff as well from getting jobs they may have deserved and he wished he'd have done more at the time to rectify that perception of him and his team. Genuinely seemed quite regretful about it all. All in all, good evening and decent value all in really, good engagement again from the club to open up for these sorts of things. Evatt mentioned as well this is his biggest budget he's had access to since being here and they're looking at the European market, 7 figure bids being banded about with multiple teams

  5. Last night was as good as it's been in my lifetime watching England. Magic stuff. Too young for 1966. The only other final we've progressed to was also on home territory. Beating Denmark in that semi-final was great. Beating Holland last night on foreign soil has to be better. Nowt wrong with the Danes but historically the Dutch are a stronger nation and this was not on home territory. Given the Ronald Koeman factor I can't help but think Graham Taylor is somewhere on that football training ground in the sky saying: "Do I like that". Onwards to Spain. We're real underdogs because Spain have been absolutely excellent throughout. You just never know though. It's far from impossible that things go our way on the night. Enjoy this everyone - stuff like this doesn't come around too often.

  7. Absolutely pathetic reading this thread. I'm a Conservative party member, so here's my outlook despite that, Calling a woman scruffy etc is misogynistic, you wouldn't say it about a bloke etc, absolutely no need to be doing that regardless of your opinion on her looks etc. Reading opinions about women in politics on here's like stepping back into the 70's, looks first, shaggability second, anything else comes last.. it's like stepping back into the 70's. I hope she does well, we need a shake up rather than the posh types running the show, because if she doesn't it sets the bar back for other women and those from diverse backgrounds.. May, Truss and Thatcher were all given a hard ride from the start, what's the connection, this one needs a chance rather than being hounded before she starts her first day of work. Not many Grandma's that are second in charge of a country.. Even as a tory member I want labour to do well, hoping they're all booted out next election but do well for the country till that point. Anyone wanting them not to is a bit of a narcissist I'm afraid. Opposition is there to hold them to account, not to block progress, which is what's happened for the last 14 years.

Fuck any rivals, fuck our jealous British bit-part nations, fuck the nations who’d love to be where we are but aren’t, fuck the Dutch who think they’ll ride past us in the Semis, the French and Spanish who think their biggest games are before the final, fuck the Southgate haters who’d rather us lose because of some political ideals, fuck anybody who wants England to fail.

  11. The fella is certainly giving a lot more leeway to the Tories for the current mess than any of the right wing press gave Labour for the financial crisis they weren't to blame for. That said, at the time I said it's the way things are, when you're in power the buck stops with you and you get the flak rightly or wrongly. I'd have some sympathy if public services weren't decimated over a decade; PPE was done without backhanders; £10bn just written off because it was to their mates; Michelle Mone; that Jockey bint on a wank trace system; some pub landlord; wine suitcases; parties; sex pests; promoting sex pests; big dog; wallpaper; austerity; cake ambushing; COVID tiers; Eat out to Help Out; Rwanda costing more than the moon; the fucking cluster fuck of Brexit; giving the DUP far more power than they were entitled to; Truss; A Russian in the HoL; Some random woman in the HoL; Hostile environment, Grenfell still not sorted; Barnard Castle; Record levels of immigration; a struggling NHS/Police/Military. I could go on but I am boring myself. Lots of these are things made worse or are directly due to this lot.

  13. When you've been consistently wrong about everything for over a decade, told everyone how the new dawn is just around the corner ever couple of years, how anyone who disagrees is a slag or sinister slag, part of some elite cover up or stupid on here and then block them, then I think you've left yourself wide open for all the ridicule that comes your way, its not the way you intend to vote. Voting for Reform doesn't make someone stupid - there are ills in western democracies linked to the death of localistation and the global expansion which has benefitted certain parts of society and left many behind which I think people like Tice, Trump, Farage, Le Penn are exploiting; and like their historical counterparts it's using the working person's concerns for their own gain without actual policy or long term solutions - because when people are angry no one wants to hear it's a slow, boring, hard working slog to recovery; it's blame one issue (in this case immigration) for every issue, solve that and we're all sorted. Stupidity is the deliberate cultivation of ignorance as someone much cleverer once wrote.

  14. No it wasn't. I went and enjoyed it . Got stuck into an excellent curry , then got a decent seat . Very respectful audience, 2 sessions. Wembley addressed immediately by Mr Evatt, no excuses " we froze " The need to strengthen his immediate backroom staff . (Which has been done). There has been rumours for some time if Evatt isn't at the training ground, various players slacken off. He was positive but not.as gung ho as he usually is. Onto Sam class as usual, humorous and very interesting to listen to . Second session a great selection of questions from the audience. Was it worth going definitely. And hopefully a few Bob raised for the charity. Sam - Class Ian - humble, probably realised he has alot to learn. Can he and the players handle the big pressure games this season ? Let's hope so.

  16. As ever the answer is in between. Islam and its core values, for me, have no place on modern day Britain. I'm ridiculously pro LGTQ+ and all that comes with it so any kind of set of beliefs that infringes on that kind of freedom is wrong. I think @Lt. Aldo Raineposted a set of instances where Islam is a threat to our liberal state. However you're correct, it's far more complex than any of us could begin to unravell. I stand by the fact that there more harm with Islam than good and Muslims electing Muslim leaders in predominantly Muslim areas is a totally bad thing and no good will come from this. It will cause more division and make that demographic even more secular. That kind of secular way promotes extremism for me in an us against them kind of thing. And for 300th time I am not saying all Muslims or followers of Islam are bad people. Far from it, but the negative connotations cannot be ignored. Anyway, it's match day, let's get to arguing about football

  17. Great acceptance speech by Starmer, now deliver on the promises. joyful seeing the collapse of the SNP vote and seeing Steven Flynn being interviewed with a face like a pan of piss. Tories getting the twatting they deserve. Lib Dem’s getting a good number of seats gives parliament a more rounded look. And finally Reform at least getting a foothold in parliament which will hopefully hold Labour to account on immigration. Democracy is alive and well, not a bad set of results, well done UK plc.

  21. Nah, bollocks. Serbia deserved nothing from the game. Yes, they gave a good account of themselves and made things hard for us, but they created no chances of note whatsoever. We will certainly have to play much better than last night if we want to win this tournament, but, as always, there's a huge overreaction. We were not lucky in any way. We should've won the game 2-0,

  22. See I sit on complete different sides on the Southgate and Evatt debate. I think in game tactics, yes there will be similarities. I think Southgate has them proud to be there and playing for England which is half the battle in a national team role. I also think he says all the right things and is quite humble and likeable. Hes shown he can adapt and drop his tried and tested. A Criticism that’s been volleyed at him numerous times. He’s the best England manager outside Sir Alf (and Big Sam) statistically. If he wins the Euros then he will be the best. It was interesting that the pool of managers he sits in with England are now all Sirs. I don’t think we have the best squad as others believe. I will say these lot are all committed to wearing the badge though and that comes from Southgate and his people

  23. Well I’ve got everything booked. Going via Prague on a bus. Just need a ticket now. I went to the U 21’s EU Championship in Olomouc in 2015. Harry Kane was playing and Gareth Southgate manager. We got beat 3-1 by Italy. Hopefully things will be better this time. Watched the 66 stuff on a b/w tele. Couldn’t miss out on this. It could be my last chance.👍

  24. You've not really answered his questions to be fair. Seen this clip before. There is a lot of truth what Tommy is talking about and it's based on his life experiences. He's had family members groomed and raped under horrific circumstances by Muslim grooming gangs. Luton was also the epicentre for Islamic extremism, and for a long time grooming and radicalisation was being ignored. I'm not sure what part of these statements are utter shite or lies? Problem isn't what he's saying. It's his tactics and his associates. He's ex BNP, has a history of violence and has associated himself with some vile people. There are some proper loony far right conspiracists who now actively support his activism and who he works alongside. The fella 'interviewing' him in this episode is a massive conspiracy theorists who thinks Marxists have infiltrated our cultural institutions. In the next episode they go onto to peddle absolute shite about Tommy being 'imprisoned by the establishment. That being said, these people are powerful and hold a lot of social media influence. Best way to beat pricks like Tommy Robinson isn't to dismiss everything they say, it's acknowledging some of their views and acting on it. If the left can do something about illegal immigration and acknowledge a radicalisation issues amongst a minority of Muslims, then the likes of Robinson and Reform won't make much progress. It's when we ignore these issues and dismiss them as racist that the problems start.

  26. Had seen the clips of Biden but took the advice of @Cheese and watched the whole thing to try to get context and his “whole” performance To me, it’s even worse. He’s “in and out” that suggests summat serious Initially assumed dementia to go along with the long quoted “sleepy Joe” tag. Nah. That guy has a Movement Disorder which may be Parkinson’s imo. Very sad that he’s put up there. He needs treatment not a fucking presidential election Trump is a massive lying cunt, and handsomely demonstrated it live on TV, but guess the Muricans will vote for the one slightly further away from the bottom of a very deep barrel. Or at least one which knows where upwards is And I thought the UK election was the worst I’ve ever seen going on

  28. People chucking stuff at a manager who has just qualified top of the group need their passports taking off them. Utter knobs. This is what Southgate always does. Get through the group stages safely without expensing a shit ton of energy trying to play total football and then see how things lie. It's conservative and it's not always the best watch - but it's led to our biggest successes as a national team since 66. Whether that approach will work this time is a percentages thing plus a bit of luck. Like someone points out earlier. Very much an Evatt style. But booing the side off and chucking bloody cups isn't going to improve those odds. I'm surprised Southgate kept the job on after the abuse he got post Italy - but I'll never understand the way some football supporters minds work.

  36. Anyone who won’t admit that Islam has a problem integrating properly in Britain is fucking demented. The “fringe” element is more than just one or two lads making potato guns. I know and work with enough Muslims to know that they are just normal folk getting on with life, but that religion of theirs is dodgy as fuck. Most religions are, but Islam has a much higher number of strict followers than the CofE does. There are issues. It is not racist to say so.

  38. That will be 9 years less than the current have spent blaming others. Did you know one of them left a jokey letter last time. There are 4 parties that in theory could win the election 1 . Liberals - Seem content to be the funny cousins rather than serious contenders 2. Reform - Whatever you think of their policies they are nowhere near ready to govern. They have put together an unvetted group that their own leader describes as politically naive. Need to lose the victim tag of inventing conspiracy theories everytime something goes wrong. 3 Tories - 14 years - Austerity but that was before the EU pressure came along and their leader gave in and called a referendum . Since then they have been a shambles of what has been the dominant political party of my lifetime. They are leaderless, inept, corrupt and their campaign has highlighted this every day 4. Labour - had their internal issues but have a leader who has tackled them, have run imo a very uninspiring campaign but at least have avoided shooting themselves in the foot everyday. Starmer IMO is genuine in his calls for country ahead of party. They will pick up if they get in a steaming turd of a mess from the Tories but will need to prove to people in next 5 years that they have changed and can bring similar change to the country. If you do not think he is genuine or won't improve the country pick any of the 3 ugly sisters above. I am more than happy to give him that chance.

  41. Choosing to spend thousands of pounds to travel abroad and attend a football match doesn't justify you acting like an entitled exceptionalist brat if the game doesn't live up to your personal expectations. People who are that weak-minded should probably reconsider what they spend their money on.

  42. Starmer being dull is basically the only reason I’m voting for Labour and not the Lib Dems who I voted for last time and in the locals. I can’t stand the idea of another ‘character’ in number 10. It makes me feel nauseous thinking about Johnson clowning around and Truss ripping the guts out. I actually liked Sunak when he got the job and thought he’d be good and felt politics would return to normal centre right and centre left debates. But he’s been so incredibly weak and the Tory party like Labour were under Corbyn are infested with extremists miles away from their centre right tradition. Sunak is just far far too weak to deal with them. So his party is just not serious. Starmer has been utterly ruthless with his sometimes to the point of pain. But it’s his promise of government staying in the background and quietly getting on with it that wins my vote. It can’t honestly be any worse.

  43. Bolty’s just been backed into a corner by his own disappointments. He believed the Tories when they said they’d deliver Brexit, they didn’t. He believed his beloved Tories when they said they’d stop the boats. There are more than ever. He talks about the wartime generation of brave men who gave everything to defeat fascism, but won’t pick up anything more than a keyboard to defend the island he abandoned. Those men he idolises would consider him a traitor. It can’t be easy to be so impotent with rage yet so unwilling to do a single thing to change the problems you hate. Much easier to blame everyone from a distant land than actually lead by example. Its like watching a football hooligan giving it the “come on then” gestures, but stay safely behind an imaginary barrier than actually go and do anything brave. Bless.

  44. No well done. You won. Your party has won since 2010. Brexit won in 2016. Johnson who you championed won in 2019. I have no idea what you said re Truss but I can imagine. Your politics have won the last 14 years. Every single time. Glorious victory after glorious victory. You must be overjoyed at how it’s all gone.
