    Indeed Herman! Lucky I hadn't started my planned magisterial overview of where the h*ll we are now with Brexit and whether there is any kind of solution.

    And to think, he was the messiah. The messiah that you wanted back as manager through the tenures of most of those that followed him, including the current coach. I guess you no longer want that now River End?

    Went to my sixth away match so far this season and it's been a stonking return to date. Far surpassing my expectations. Normally go with my nephew who lives in Leicester now and brother in law based in York. Only one defeat to date (courtesy of the old **** head Wilder), draws at Ipswich and Albion but wins at Forest, Owls and now Bolton. Rotherham and Wigan are next with a potential final day trip to Villa. Bolton were one of the worst supported clubs I've been too which made for a pretty limp atmosphere which sometimes resembled a pre season friendly. Fair play to the 1500 Yellows for trying to liven up the living dead from Lancashire though! Call me 'old school' but I still find it galling that players are so wrapped up listening to their music that they pretty much ignore the fans who've waited ages for the team coach to arrive. I was close to the action and got a good view. Now Norfolk souls are renowned for being 'reserved' and 'quiet' so maybe its' no surprise that most of the players walked straight past and into the ground? Had there been a rousing welcome then I've no doubt they may have responded more positively. Krul gave a sheepish grin and Pukki was clearly relaxed and smiling. Zimmerman disappointed considering how much he professes to 'love the club'. Zero reaction from him. Ben and Max came over to sign some autographs so fair play to them. I didn't see Klose but apparently he was chatting with the fans. However, all our players I'd say (from what I saw) were shown how to behave on public duty by JR. He posed for photos and came across and signed several autographs right in front of me. Each time it was with a smile and a 'Thank You' to each fan. Tell you something that guy is absolute top class for his behaviour and professionalism. He's a credit to the club and conducts himself in exactly the right manner. Finally Farke was last man off the coach and was clearly appreciative of the fans and stopped to sign several autographs. Have to stress that this was all before the game so would be interested in hearing what happened afterwards from others who were there. Have been to Bolton several times and the atmosphere (along with the club) has deteriorated each time. I think Phil Parkinson is a decent manager but they will struggle to get back in The Championship looking at the downward spiral they're in. 'There but for the grace of God' I think is the saying!!

    What does Wikipedia tell us about Sir James Ratcliiffe? Born in Failsworth, Lancashire, the son of a father who was a joiner and a mother who was an accounts office worker, Ratcliffe lived there in a council house until the age of ten. Aged ten, he moved with his family to Yorkshire, and Ratcliffe attended Beverley Grammar School So a working-class lad, who benefited from the old grammar school system (that gave working-class kids a chance) before being destroyed by Labour's ideology (note: Labour MPs sent their kids to private schools, so let's add hypocrisy to ideology). Didn't sit on his ar se all day playing computer games, worked hard, created a business, employed thousands, paid millions in taxes and earned this country a small fortune in export revenue. I think he's entitled to live where he wants and spend his hard-earned on what he likes.

    Just to read your arrogant twaddle Bill. It's about time you realised that, apart from Lens' globalists, among the people who change governments and who voted leave, are not interested in facts or fake news. They vote for whatever they think is best for them. Instead of sitting at your keyboard 24/7, you should get out and talk to the majority, the bit of the iceberg never visible. Hundreds of views? Wow. I am so underwhelmed.

    Do people here recall when Billock, Herman, KiO, Purple etc were so very concerned about agricultural and UK farmers? You'll be shocked at my next post which contains FACTS concerning the EU and the Common Agricultural Policy.

    One particular member of Chicago, Peter Cetera, dragged the band down the soft rock route, especially after the unfortunate death of Terry Kath. And then he left to pursue an 80's power ballad career, which was sad as he was himself an accomplished rock/jazz bass player.

    Another example of us going under the radar Bob, I think people are starting to realise how good we are.

    Tbis is starting to look, in possession, like the 1985-86 squad, that finished seven points clear of second place and was just too good for many of the other teams. I remember seeing us late in the season beat Sheffield United, who were in contention for promotion, 5-2 at Bramall Lane, getting Porterfield the sack on the Monday. Phelan, Williams, Barham and Mendham in midfield, all of whom could pass the ball, and Drinkell as the Pukki to score goals. But it also had, playing every League game, Woods in goal, and Bruce and Watson in central defence. Three players who would be considered for any all-time Best-of eleven.

    This has all been about the personal greed of a handful of wealthy and powerful men. As someone wisely said, this ain't no working class revolution. Working class revolutions don't get the backing of the Daily Mail nor the Telegraph. What a con.

    Yet still the thickos will continue bleating about sovereignty and won't work out they've been used. On a related note, what sort of a c**t is so obsessed with money that they pull these kind of shenanigans despite having more than enough for the next 50 generations of his family to ponce about doing nothing and never working a day in their lives if they so wish?

    Absolutely love Pukki. I dont think anyone anticipated him turning into quite the player he has. Testament to what Farke is doing at the club, every single player is improving and the system he has imposed on the team is not just a joy to watch but its also an incredibly bold strategy in this league. I cant remember a team playing football the way we do in the Championship and being successful. The recruitment has been eye watering. Leitner, Buendia, Zimmermann, Pukki and Trybull for a total of about 4mill is unreal business. Pukki is quite simply the best pure finisher we've had since Bellamy. He has a lot to his game and brings lots of different attributes to the team. The way he took both goals yesterday was outstanding. When you consider the sums villa spent to get a 20 goal a season striker (Hogan, Kodjia, Fatty McCormack), it shows how tough it is to find someone like Teemu and the fact that we didnt pay a penny for him is astonishing. I actually feel that this team could hold their own in the Prem, and with one or two class additions could really do some damage. Pukki is so clinical that i would back him to return a decent goal haul at that level too. Pukki is definitely right up there as one of my favourite all time canaries. Not just for the goals but the way he plays and what he brings to the team.
