    Nonsense. A guy on a message board knows much better and all he has to do is look at a teamsheet to instantly understand the incredibly complex nature of group psychology.

    The bus message was designed to trick the gormless into thinking we’d be sending all that cash to the NHS instead. The Brexiteers on this thread know it, and some are embarrassingly trying to change the meaning and defend it. If it was the other way round, with it being a remainer bus, the Brexiteers would be jumping in and crying that the message was a lie. Everything dodgy, such as lying bus messages, bigotry and racism, economic downturns, factory closures, etc, is swept under the carpet by some Brexiteers, which leads me to believe they are morally bankrupt.

    I think lack of match sharpness after three weeks off mixed with the heat over there has a lot to say for it. Also think the penalty/goal had a big impact too; Liverpool’s midfield was extremely unadventurous - because they could be. Win the ball, get it out to the full backs and put crosses in to the middle whilst the midfield stays solid and protects the defence. That’s how to kill a game when you’re 1-0 up and you’re not fully match sharp/too hot to play your usual way. If it had been 0-0 after twenty minutes I dare say it would have lead to a much more open and exciting game.

    You’re right, it’s not rocket science. Look at the results (and performances) once Kane got injured. Didn’t win in the PL playing with a false nine (3 losses) yet won all (bar the final games 2-2) with a central striker on the pitch (Llorente). There was a very good performance against Dortmund in the CL but took the introduction of Llorente and Moura moved to his more suited position to spark the comeback against Ajax. So no, not rocket science at all that Kane came back in, sensible decision unless he was going to start Llorente and that really would’ve been controversial.

    So basically the Tory and Brexit party position is that we must leave the EU so that we can regain our independence from a bunch of foreigners, and to do that we are going to swear personal allegiance to the current President of the United States and do whatever he says we should do. Makes perfect sense.

    I think that the former explanation is unlikely. Whilst no doubt some people are taken in by the propaganda (as we see on this thread) I don't think that the non-committed are likely to be. In RTB's case, it is not even limited to Brexit, he posts all manner of strange and ridiculous conspracies. I don't think he is dumb - he is clearly articulate and literate - I think that he lacks evaluative skills. My guess is that it is an education thing - many people of an "older vintage" were very bright but due to social factors at the time where prevented from having a university or even A level education. I have seen with older relatives of mine - highly intelligent but not fully "educated" in being critical of arguments etc.

    I fear you may underestimate RTB. I get the feeling that he knows exactly that what he is being told on this thread is true, but it suits him and his paymasters narrative to keep pumping out fallacies. (Alternatively I could be overestimating him and he is simply dumb as dust )

    I think that's true but it's not really the delay that's at fault. It has clearly made the situation worse but the delay itself is a direct result of Theresa May's personal responsibility for ruling our any 'middle' way right at the start and instead spending three years trying to deliver a hard Brexit which never looked likely to get through Parliament. If at the very start, instead of her ridiculous red lines and stupid 'Brexit means Brexit'/'No deal is better than a bad deal' utterances, she had set out the deliver the political exit but close relationship with the EU that you say you voted for then the negotiations would have proceeded much more quickly and quite possibly the deal would have made it through the HoC and we'd be out by now. She set off on completely the wrong track and stuck to it to the very end (for her), long after everybody else had realised that it was a dead end.

    A club with no internal debt. A club with no external debt. A club that could and did meet all its financial responsibilities. A club connected well enough to the supporters that a multi-million pound bond issue was sold out within days, with would-be investors missing out. A club owning its ground. A club owning its training ground. A club with a Category One academy. A club with a scouting network and the kudos to get stars in the making such as Maddison, Aarons, Godfrey and Lewis. If those crucial essentials had not already been solidly in place Webber would not have joined the club, and he would not have been able to address the less fundamental problems there were.

    Unlucky Wacky. It was a strange game and certainly didn't work out how I expected. We're back again after the weekend for the England game on Thursday. Icecream, Fuzzar, Branston, Herman, Canary73, Kick It Off, Fromage, Nuff, we will need you guys to help us.

    And if you count playing in a final and becoming a canary and then an ex: Martin Peters, John Sissons, Ken Brown played in West Ham’s 1965 Cup Winners Cup winning team. Martin Chivers May also played in European Finals for Spurs, two I believe

    If the couple of months after the loan and before he signed counts as being an ex and if being on the bench is sufficient - Mo Leitner.
