    Hernandez really hasn't stepped up this season to deserve a start. Todd is more effective

    Help with ticket renewal please

    You may have trouble finding 4 together but good luck. We have the world's most annoying 7 year old boy sitting behind us. It's surprising how irritating a child can be. Perhaps it's just my age

    The Brexit Thread

    Um - of course the UK can negotiate more than one deal at a time: with the number of deals that they need to do they will have too. However the only way an FTA will get done quickly will be to concede everything the Trump administration wants, and to find a fig leaf like “this represents our special UK/USA relationship” to cover up the fact the UK just caved. America and Trump do not need the UK’s trade, because it’s already got it thank you, it’s now a question of what else they can grab in return for a pat on Boris’s head. And then there is the subject of N. Ireland, an FTA can be agreed but Congress must also vote to approve it and the Irish have a lot of supporters there, including the Leader of the House, Nancy Pelosi. So areas you can expect to get screwed on are - pharmaceutical patents and drug prices / leveling up of branded drug prices - taxation of multinational corporate profits - elimination of renewable energy subsidies, relaxation of car mileage goals & purchase of American LNG, elimination of country of origin rules on food and bans on antibiotics and GMO in food production. Increased anti-piracy rule on media content and derived works, relaxation of media consolation rules, relaxation of retirement savings plans rules to eliminate the need for fiscal responsibility. Increased private insurance in healthcare and reduction in annual time off, maternity and sick leave.... I hope y’all think it’s worth it at the end of the day, the trend is most people in the US are treading water, the rich are scooping up all the benefits of the (slowing) economic growth.

    The Brexit Thread

    There a beautiful irony in this headline story from the Telegraph. The UK is going to open trade talks with the US before they start talks with the EU. This is a brilliant move by Boris to subvert the negotiating tactics of Brussels. From being told that the UK will be back of the queue by Obama, Boris is telling the Europeans that they are behind the Americans in the queue to have a FTA with the UK. The power has shifted from the Continent to London. This has Cummings stamp of genius all over it. Boris Johnson is expected to formally open trade talks with the US before he begins discussions with the European Union, the Telegraph has learned. US diplomats believe the Prime Minister is poised to seek Cabinet authorisation to open trade talks directly with America on a visit to Washington next month. British civil servants have drawn up advice for ministers on the “pros and cons” of starting trade talks with America before beginning them with the European Union, the Telegraph understands. A UK government source who has seen the advice said the argument for going to the US first is to show: “We mean business and we’re not messing around.” It would also aim to avoid becoming “trapped” by Brussels negotiators like Theresa May was, and “negate some of the concerns of the EU trying to play the ball in the way they want”, the source said. “The political signal would be - 'We’ve got the capacity to do this at the same time, don’t hold this up'.” A source briefed directly on plans in Washington said the US was “impatient to get started”. As RockThe Boat pointed out a long time ago, a FTA with the US will be quick and easy to do, as both sides want to get it done. I now predict the deal will be brilliant for the UK as it will weaken the position of the EU when member states see what is on offer for countries that leave the EU. This deal will put so much pressure on the EU it will eventually force it to collapse where upon it will be replaced by a US/UK structured Europe with us taking a leading role in place of Germany. You read it here first.

    I’d be tempted to swap Amadou for Rupp and if I felt lucky I might risk Leitner for Trybull but pretty much spot on.

    Everything backs up what you are saying except reality. Cantwell’s stats and goals speak for themselves.

    I'm sure we all have a lot of time for him. He clearly wasn't the most gifted footballer, but he made the most out of what he had with hard work, determination and fight.
