    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!!

    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.

    When the scores are generated by an formula based on the game statistics I don’t think it has much to do with ‘going under the radar’. Whoscored ratings are a bit odd and they are always heavily bias towards attacking players - basically no one really knows how to statsically analyse defenders and full backs. A nice thing to see, but ultimately. fairly meaningless.

    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.

    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.

    For me, one of my earliest footballing memories is watching bits of the'74 world cup on TV and my Dad raving about the Dutch side, probably one of the best sides of all time. I've watched football ever since then and I still feel the same way. Modern players have better technique and fitness due to the coaching regime that they're in from an early age, put those Dutch players through the same and they would still be up there with the very best. My Dad would talk about the Hungarian side from the early 50s who came to England and dished out a footballing lesson, from clips on cinema newsreels apparently he thought they were equally good. So I would say, yes this City side are playing the best football in the Division and indeed the best I can remember City play for at least 20 years. But that's no guarantee of success in football.

    The net tightens https://www.theguardian.com/uk-news/2019/feb/17/brittany-kaiser-trump-russia-robert-mueller-cambridge-analytica?CMP=share_btn_tw " A director of the controversial data company Cambridge Analytica, who appeared with Arron Banks at the launch of the Leave.EU campaign, has been subpoenaed by the US investigation into possible collusion between the Trump campaign and the Russian government. Tom Watson, the deputy leader of the Labour party, echoed Collins’s statement, saying: “This is the first evidence that a significant player in the Leave.EU campaign is of interested to the global Mueller inquiry. People will be bewildered that the British government has no interest in establishing the facts of what happened.” " as they already are https://www.independent.co.uk/news/uk/politics/brexit-vote-investigate-law-breaking-influence-manipulation-theresa-may-facebook-a8783746.html So be under no illusion that this has 'all gone away' it has not, as the above shows. Nor will it go away. "Mr Collins added: “Democracy is at risk from the malicious and relentless targeting of citizens with disinformation and personalised ‘dark adverts’ from unidentifiable sources, delivered through the major social media platforms we use every day. “Much of this is directed from agencies working in foreign countries, including Russia.”

    It's a general point westcoast, but again you know that............ Too many variables to compare the actual results, and outcomes (wins/goals conceded etc) hence why I will not say that just because our football is, imo, better than Wolves from last year, would automatically mean that we will go up as Champions (if at all) I certainly would not say it is flawless, but watching Wolves last year was a footballing pleasure. Watching us this year , is a footballing pleasure. See what I mean? Of course you do.

    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.
