    OT - EU straw poll...

    It is very nearly game, set and match to Boris The idea of a government of national unity has been laughed off the pages of public opinion as the opposition can't even unite around a credible leader. In Europe Merkel and Macron have given Johnson more time to run down the clock The Irish were not even invited to join the discussion about their future. At home, Rebels like Boyles (sp?) Are backtracking on the idea of voting against the government. And the Tories are pulling away in the polls. None of this should come as a surprise as I have argued right from the beginning our best negotiating position is from the threat of leaving with no deal. Had we done this we would have saved three years and would be in a far better negotiating position than now But with a bit of hard work and mental toughness we can still retrieve a good outcome.
  8. Well I would have thought Boris could perhaps use the time honored can-kicking routine ("just putting some final bits of research into our 3,485 page submission for your perusal. That's just the summary you understand -we'll need a couple more weeks for the full submission. But don't worry, where there's a will ...) to, er, ensure the job has been done thoroughly, no stones left unturned, all avenues explored ... You could be right there. In that case, perhaps we can expect some of the juicy details to be leaked?!
  9. Hi all, I will be in Paris overnight tomorrow as my friends band are headlining a festival at the Domaine National de Saint Cloud Park over the River Seine. As that’s located just the other side of the river itself, can anyone recommend a bar etc to watch Norwich v Chelsea in the city itself? A bit of a long shot but you never know!, many thanks folks.

    Which includes you not knowing what has been agreed. Yet this hasn't stopped you making a fool of yourself daily for the past three years. Still claiming we're not leaving the EU are you? Still claiming May's deal was always meant to keep us in the EU? If there is a majority who wanted to stop Brexit' then why did they vote for the triggering of A50? That was the best possible chance to stop Brexit' if that was the plan
  13. One might argue that Merkel's '30 day' remark has thrown Boris a lifeline. Difficult for Tory remainers (who all claim to be leave-with-a-dealers) to justify chucking him out beforehand, & Merkel can't really backtrack without making it look like No Deal is her fault. It will probably be one of the EU bigwigs who stymie any plan during initial talks (which should already be underway?). Any suggestion to cross one of the red lines will allow them to jump in. I think the most obvious solution to the NI problem would involve Norwegian style border crossings and computerised pre-authorisation. But three years later nothing concrete appears to be in sight.

  17. All the Germans

    Mr Farke

    I know what you mean, why should there be any adulation to a man who took a team with no money and no hope of... anything to winning the Championship playing the best football I've witnessed (including the 3rd in the Premiership / UEFA cup team), packed full of entertainment and all the while doing it maintaining dignity (remember the wilder rant a couple of seasons ago) and professionalism.

    Mr Farke

    Spot on!!! I totally agree with every word you just said...

  20. If in doubt, trust the FT. Its overage from Berlin and Paris makes it quite clear that Merkel and Macron have not moved an inch. Their fundamental red lines (two can play at that game...) on the Withdrawal Agreement and the backstop remain as scarlet as ever. All that has happened is that the English media, and particularly the Brexit-supporting section, have again misinterpreted continental politics, through a combination of stupidity, insularity and wishful thinking. In that sense Johnson has achieved nothing at all. And is not likely to. But, as said, this supposed new deadline of September 20, adds yet another complicating factor to be considered by the How-Do-We-Stop No-Deal/Brexit Brigade, which was already struggling to make up its mind what actually to do. In that sense Johnson has gained something. I would imagine the idea of a last minute deal, based on a backstop-related breakthrough, will get shot down by the EU before a vote of confidence happens. It should be a fairly simple target to hit!

    Is ‘Hanley to be dropped’ the new ‘we need a defensive midfielder’?

    JF - I am not interested in being right or wrong, I am interested in getting to the truth of the matter. I do accept that he may make changes, but I think it unlikely simply because of what I see as the fairly simple but effective man management regime - success for the team is more important than the individual - and that doesn't mean dropping players after a fantastic team performance. He didn't do it last season for many weeks, despite Klose, Leitner and Vrancic being ready....because the team were performing well.....and by any stretch of the imagination the team performed well last Saturday.

    Mr Farke

    When I rewatch that Ipswich game, the wink from Farke when Lambert is kicking off I just love it. May have watched that game too many times! I think I’ve probably watched Leeds away a couple of more times. Great coach whatever happens next, what a season he gave us regardless.

    Wow. Jools calling me a f*cking idiot. My missus is due back from a meal and drinks with the girls so you might be half right. But you calling me an idiot? Where do we go from here? Gemma Collins calling Stephen Hawking stupid? Susan Boyle telling Usain Bolt he's slow? Alan Brazil suggesting Kate Moss is looking a little bit tubby? Jools. Calling me an idiot. Just let that sink in. I hope someone knows the way back through this looking glass.

    Mr Farke

    I presume this is a bit tongue in cheek? He obviously made mistakes last season as we lost 6 games. but to suggest he made loads of mistakes is somewhat disingenuous and misleading. We were predicted to finish mid table with what can only be described as a scratch team. The way he has stuck to his principles and the development shown in what is probably the best team I have seen since the mid / late 70s means he, at this moment deserves all the plaudits he receives. This is not 'gushing on', and my eyes and brains are perfectly functional. From German 3rd tier to English 1st tier in 3 seasons as a manager is stunning!
