    We didn't give away our fisheries, we sold them.

    Caught some of Radio 5 live this morning while driving home from the dentist - it was a continuous stream of Leavers calling in a panic that it was all over for Brexit. Cheered me up no end!

    There are times when being big is the best way to be, these are not them. We need to be agile and flexible, we need to be able to adapt and adapt quickly, Brexit will cause disruption but it will be excellent preparation for what is coming. Be brave, walk away, the EU will not survive in its current form.

    He's got you there, Purple. It's on a graph, it must be true. After the referendum I wondered how a nation could be so stupid. Then I clicked on this thread and wondered no more.

    Looks like the Purple one needs some figures & charts Almost a year after the EU Referendum the people had another chance to express an opinion in the general election of 2017. They voted by over 85% for parties whose manifestos committed to exiting the Single Market and Customs Union. The chart above shows how the British public overwhelmingly backed parties which said they would enact the Referendum result and take the UK out of the EU, including out of the Single Market and Customs Union. Within the 85% are the Conservatives, Labour, UKIP and the DUP. Within the 13% are the LibDems the SNP, the Greens, Sinn Fein and Plaid Cymru. The balance not shown are for very minor parties or individuals. The basic fact to remember is that public voted by 85% for parties whose manifestos said they would fundamentally honour Brexit. Current composition of the Commons The chart below shows how the votes were translated into seats, for the MPs now sitting in Parliament. Over 90% of MPs owe their seats to being a member of a party which fundamentally backed the Referendum decision. In June 2015 MPs voted by 544-53 (by 6 to 1) to hold an In/Out EU Referendum No question of a second Referendum on the terms of a deal No question of delaying the end of Article 50 No question of a fudge keeping the UK in the Single Market or Customs Union in all but name No question of MPs taking over the decision of the British people and exercising ‘individual judgement’

    Players who preemp and prevent opponenents finding space rarely get noticed on the highlights. I usually miss it at games too. I need to sit next to Parma more

    Or maybe Aston Oxborough? He's just back to fitness after a 3 month injury. He's already been on the bench for the away match at Reading and apparently Farke rates him highly.

    I suppose if he did go there and they stayed up at least we would have a ready-made scapegoat to blame it on? Apples

    It amazes me how we've gone from complete financial meltdown and turmoil to this. A very good championship squad and plenty of assets, pushing the automatic positions. I cannot get my head around just how good a job the powers at be have done.

    The only sense I could find in your fishing quotas argument Paul is that once the fishermen have fished out the waters the water level will have gone down and Norfolk will be safe from drowning.

    Times up Paul. The answer is-Tax cuts for the rich is all he has delivered. Well apart from a Supreme Court judge who is/was facing sexual allegations.

    Yes Godfrey was the nearest man in the end but credit them for a good cross and Gayle sensing where the ball might go. Instinct. Just like Jordan did for our goal. They make the runs, normally keeping onside, that give them the half yard they need. Strikers have the sixth sense to be in the right position for tap ins or in both cases on Saturday, getting their feet in the right place to guide the ball in which is all they did. I thought Godfrey had a good game knowing he might struggle with Gayle's pace but got in the right position virtually every time.

    I think he struggles with his distribution at times tbh. I think if we were to go up it’s an area of the team the coaching staff would be looking at. Krul’s made a few **** ups this season, but overall he’s been pretty decent, with some very impressive (and important) saves in recent matches.

    Predictions:1. Auto repair shops go away. A gasoline engine has 20,000 individual parts. An electrical engine has 20. Electric cars are sold with lifetime guarantees and are only repaired by dealers. It takes only 10 minutes to remove and replace an electric engine. Faulty electric engines are not repaired in the dealership but are sent to a regional repair shop that repairs them with robots Essentially, if your electric "Check Motor" light comes on, you simply drive up to what looks like a car wash. Your car is towed through while you have a cup of coffee and out comes your car with a new engine. 2. Gas stations go away. Parking meters are replaced by meters that dispense electricity. All companies install electrical recharging stations. 3. All major auto manufacturers have already designated 5-6 billion dollars each to start building new plants that only build electric cars. 4. Coal industries go away. Oil companies go away. Drilling for oil stops. 5. Homes produce and store more electrical energy during the day and then they use and will sell it back to the grid. The grid stores it and dispenses it to industries that are high electricity users. A baby of today will only see personal cars in museums. 1. The FUTURE is approaching faster than one can handle! In 1998, Kodak had 170,000 employees and sold 85% of all photo paper worldwide. Within just a few years, their business model disappeared and they went bankrupt. What happened to Kodak will happen in a lot of industries in the next 5-10 years and, most people won't see it coming. Did you think in 1998 that 3 years later you would never take pictures on film again? Yet digital cameras were invented in 1975 The first ones only had 10,000 pixels, but followed Moore's law So as with all exponential technologies, it was a disappointment for a time, before it became way superior and became mainstream in only a few short years. It will now happen again (but much faster) with Artificial Intelligence, health, autonomous and electric cars, education, 3D printing, agriculture and jobs. Welcome to the 4th Industrial Revolution. Welcome to the Exponential Age!! 2. Software will disrupt most traditional industries in the next 5-10 years. 3 Uber is just a software tool, they don't own any cars, yet they are now the biggest taxi company in the world. 4. Airbnb is now the biggest hotel company in the world, although they don't own any properties. 5. Artificial Intelligence: Computers become exponentially better in understanding the world. This year, a computer beat the best Go-player in the world, 10 years earlier than expected. 6. In the U.S., young lawyers already don't get jobs. Because ofIBM's Watson, you can get legal advice (so far for more or less basic stuff) within seconds, with 90% accuracy compared with 70% accuracy when done by humans. So, if you study law, stop immediately. There will be 90% fewer lawyers in the future, only omniscient specialists will remain. 6A. Watson already helps nursesdiagnosing cancer, its 4 times more accurate than human nurses. 7. Facebook now has a pattern recognition software that can recognize faces better than humans. In 2030, computers will become more intelligent than humans. 8. Autonomous cars: In 2018 the first self-driving cars will appear for the public Around 2020, the complete industry will start to be disrupted. You don't want to own a car anymore. You will call a car with your phone, it will show up at your location and drive you to your destination. You will not need to park it you only pay for the driven distance and can be productive while driving. The very young children of today will never get a driver's license and will never own a car. 8A. It will change the cities, because we will need 90-95% fewer cars for that We can transform former parking spaces into parks. 1.2 million people die each year in car accidents worldwide. We now have one accident every 60,000 mi (100,000 km), with autonomous driving that will drop to 1 accident in 6 million miles (10 million km). That will save a million lives worldwide each year. 8B. Most car companies will doubtless become bankrupt. Traditional car companies try the evolutionary approach and just build a better car, while tech companies (Tesla, Apple, Google) will do the revolutionary approach and build a computer on wheels. 8C. Many engineers from Volkswagen and Audi are completely terrified of Tesla 9. Insurance companies will have massive trouble because, without accidents, the insurance will become 100x cheaper. Their car insurance business model will disappear. 10. Real estate will change. Because if you can work while you commute, people will move further away to live in a more beautiful neighborhood. 11. Electric cars will become mainstream about 2020. Cities will be less noisy because all new cars will run on electricity. 12. Electricity will become incredibly cheap and clean: Solar production has been on an exponential curve for 30 years, but you can now see the burgeoning impact. 13. Last year, more solar energy was installed worldwide than fossil. Energy companies are desperately trying to limit access to the grid to prevent competition from home solar installations, but that simply cannot continue.. technology will take care of that strategy. 14. With cheap electricity comes cheap and abundant water. Desalination of salt water now only needs 2kWh per cubic meter (@ 0.25 cents). We don't have scarce water in most places, we only have scarce drinking water. Imagine what will be possible if anyone can have as much clean water as he wants, for nearly no cost. 15. Health: The Tricorder X price will be announced this year. There are companies who will build a medical device (called the "Tricorder" from Star Trek) that works with your phone, which takes your retina scan, your blood sample and you breath into it. It then analyses 54 bio-markers that will identify nearly any disease. It will be cheap, so in a few years everyone on this planet will have access to world class medical analysis, nearly for free. 16. 3D printing: The price of the cheapest 3D printer came down from $18,000 to $400 within 10 years. In the same time, it became 100 times faster. All major shoe companies have already started 3D printing shoes. 17. Some spare airplane parts are already 3D printed in remote airports. The space station now has a printer that eliminates the need for the large amount of spare parts they used to have in the past. 18. At the end of this year, new smart phones will have 3D scanning possibilities. You can then 3D scan your feet and print your perfect shoe at home. 19. In China, they already 3D printed and built a complete 6-story office building. By 2027, 10% of everything that's being produced will be 3D printed. 20. Business opportunities: If you think of a niche you want to go in, first ask yourself: "In the future, do I think we will have that?" And, if the answer is yes, how can you make that happen sooner? 20A. If it doesn't work with your phone, forget the idea. Any idea designed for success in the 20th century is doomed to failure in the 21st century. 20B. Work: 70-80% of jobs will disappear in the next 20 years. There will be a lot of new jobs, but it is not clear if there will be enough new jobs in such a short time. 21. Agriculture: There will be a $100 agricultural robot in the future. Farmers in 3rd world countries can then become managers of their field instead of working all day on their fields. 22. Aeroponics will need much less water. The first Petri dish produced veal is now available and will be cheaper than cow produced veal in 2018. Right now, 30% of all agricultural surfaces is used for cows. Imagine if we don't need that space anymore. 23. There are several startups who will bring insect protein to the market shortly. It contains more protein than meat. It will be labeled as "alternative protein source".

    I can't get my head around the idea that giving the opposition the ball in our own half for a throw could be considered a successful tactic.

    This comment is just wrong (unless twice = several) and an example of the exaggerated criticism that Krul has gained, for no logical reason. Criticism is fine but the collective amount (on this board and from the stands) over the season that Krul has got is unjust when compared with others

    Delia got lucky by hiring McNally. Lambert got lucky because he inherited Holt and Hoolahan, plus he had Culverhouse doing all the work. Really I think we all owe a massive debt of gratitude to Gunn and Doncaster.
