    What Joy

    Fantastic to see so many faces all back at once. We need that boost. Hopefully Zimbo not far behind them. On a sidenote, what a finish from Emi to smash that bicycle kick!

    Who else is an NFL fan in here? I'm a big Redskins fan - currently 6-3 atop the NFC East. Have to say, we're probably the worst team to be leading a division but all I know is misery and mediocrity in my Redskins fandom so I'm happily enjoying the whole winning games novelty, even if we are winning ugly every week. Anyone see past Saints/Rams for Superbowl?

    The world has natural climate cycles. That is known. The issue is the rate of change is unsustainable for the world's ecosystems to adapt, and the rate of change is directly linked to human activity. Denying that we are accelerating the climate change beyond all recognition and way outside normal parameters of change is what is futile and idiotic.

    You did. A loss and another step towards the #1 overall pick is far mroe valuable than winning a meaningless game in a season where neither team is likely to win another game.

    Casino Royale

    Be interested to see if Rooney would make the team under Southgate as his evening entertainment normally consisted of shagging a pensioner for money. What about John Terry - would Southgate be dropping him for banging his team-mate's missus? The questions about Maddison's attitude are a joke considering some of the scumbags that have captained the team over recent years. Of course that's if anyone actually believes a word the Scum has to say.

    "To try and win" - or guarantee they didn't win by calling a dumbass play that had zero chance of success.... one of the two.

    Depressing to see us win the "Toilet bowl". Nobody is convincing me that Miami didn't throw that f***ing game. When you've lost 4 in a row and you have a chance to tie and go to overtime or flip a coin on a win/loss scenario, you take the tie. Fitzpatrick would have done for us in OT and the Dolphins knew it. Typical Redskins though - whatever the scenario, they will f*** it up and come out with the result that harms them the most. Like clockwork.

    I clicked to see what diatribe you'd posted, only to find that more than 6 months after I blocked you, you're still aiming posts at me. It's cute, but more than a little desperate. As for your bizarre attention seeking post, I'll do no more than correct your ridiculous assertions. Full time, permanent contract - School has been Outstanding on last two Ofsted visits (including one in the last few years, where 80% of previously outstanding schools were downgraded - mine wasn't). Comprehensive school, not even near a city, let alone one big enough to have an inner city..... Fully mixed catchment in socio-economic terms. Significantly above national average on all measures for progress and attainment, and my subject outperformed national average by 20%. Oh and we have a positive progress score for students who receive the Pupil Premium funding (ie the most deprived) who buck national trends by performing on par with non PP kids. Good try though. I won't bother clicking your posts again so don't bother replying.

    The Brexit Party

    I have absolutely none left. The Turkeys voted for Christmas. The information was out there and if people were stupid enough to believe Farage's man of the people routine then more fool them. If Brexit does happen, it will be little short of karma for those who voted for it. The only people I feel sorry for is those who will be collateral damage for the idiocy of others.

    The Brexit Party

    We don't have a democracy to defend. We have an illusion of democracy where only about 10% of the population actually have a vote that carries any sway due to our antiquated voting system. That's before even talking about the Tories gerrymandering the constituencies to benefit themselves too.

    Pukki for Finland

    Pukki limping off with 7 minutes to go was worrying though. Really hope it's not serious but he looked pretty uncomfortable and couldn't put any weight on his leg. An injury to Pukki would be season over in my book so fingers crossed it's just a knock. Just kidding - unscathed as far as Im aware.

    I'm fully on board with a tank season - even if we're doing it by accident!! Watched some GB vs Dallas - Packers look legit contenders this year. I like them so I'm rooting for them to win - I want Redskins to lose out now - get some serious draft capital and start the damn rebuild. So sick of mediocrity. Sad to see Gruden go, he's a good dude - and not the problem. Bruce Allen is STILL the damn problem. Can't wait to see the back of that dumbass. Kinda surprised you've dropped 2 games already - unfortunately Eagles are looking really good this season. Amazing what can happen when you have a real GM instead of Bruce in the front office,

    VAR Red Card Check?!!?

    It does get given against us. Happened last season with Godfrey and yes, we were fuming- doesn’t change the fact that within the new handball framework then it’s a penalty. yes it did hit his arms on the floor too.

    VAR Red Card Check?!!?

    You don't think Mings handling it on the goaline twice warrants a penalty then? Under the current rules, his arms were outside his body and he handled it as it bounced up from him sliding, preventing a clear goalscoring opportunity for our players. He then stretched out on the floor and it hit him on the hands again. Accidental no doubt, but under the current rules, it was a pen for both instances. The Buendia one maybe I got wrong, I saw it a few times and it looked like the player went through the back of him whilst winning the ball, which would normally be a free kick, but I'm not going to die on that hill as it wasn't clear enough on the replays and commentators didn't mention it. The handball was clear as daylight though.

    VAR Red Card Check?!!?

    Thought Buendia got cleaned out for their fourth, from behind. Couldn’t believe that one wasn’t called back. The Mings handball was a pen, twice over. How the **** VAR couldn’t get that right is beyond me. I was a big supporter of VAR but if it’s not being used properly then what is the point? Ok yesterday it would have made no difference to final result but if those incidents were in other games that could be really costly.

    Haskins looking good tbf. Can’t be any worse than Keenum. Gruden is so gone after this season. Manusky might be gone after today. Mclaurin played with Haskins at Ohio so cant wait to see them playing together (mclaurin injured today). Patriots next week. They’re going to feast on us. EDIT - Haskins stopped looking so good second half - I don't blame him though, had no first team reps etc

    Woooo that first half was a serious false dawn. We will be picking in the top 2 this season. We’re worse than Miami and they’re trying to lose on purpose 2 wins if we get lucky, twice. Genuinely could be historically bad 0-16 Mclaurin and our punter tress way are our only two good players

    The Liam Gallagher unplugged set that aired on MTV this week is biblical. Currently available on YouTube. Missed out on tickets for the latest tour on general sale but watching it this morning prompted me to grab one off the secondary. Hate paying the touts but couldn’t miss out.

    Electric cigarettes

    I''ve been a smoker for over 10 years.Last week I spent just over £60 on an electric fag starter kit (£45 on the kit and £18 on the refill pack).Best money I''ve ever spent. I only got it yesterday morning due to missing the delivery on Friday, and have been using it since yesterday evening.I can smoke indoors, it looks like a real fag, it feels like you have a real fag in your hand which is psychologically important to me as Im as addicted to the habit of having a cigarette as I am to the nicotine. I''ve been smoking it in the house, which I couldnt do with normal fags, and the missus is sat next to me and can''t smell it so when they say odourless, it is a legit claim. It gives a "throat hit" like a real cigarette does, although it tastes a bit different, it tastes much better imo and doesn''t make your breath smell. Oh yeah, and how about NO HEALTH IMPACTS!!I cannot recommend them highly enough. If any smokers out there are thinking about it, I would advise you to take the plunge. £65 upfront sounds like a lot, but when you consider it, it is only equivalent to about 9 packs of 20 fags (approx £7-8 each).. The equivalent of a 20 pack costs me less than £1.50 so I will make my money back on it by not smoking 10 packs.The kit I went for is the Rok Jet Black starter kit, but there are plenty of brands out there. Skycig have also been recommended to me, as well as Green smoke and V2. I went for Rok because independent sites rated them cheaper on the refills and it comes in a case which looks like a fag packet and is a portable charging device for the battery stems.Im not here to advertise Rok as a brand but they''re the only ones i have direct experience with, do your research and pick one that''s right for you. You can get better value for money if you choose one which doesnt look like a fag, but like I said, the psychological aspect is important to me.In summary, if you smoke, switch to an electric, you will not regret it. You can pick up disposable ones for £2.99 if you look around a bit so there''s really no excuse not to give it a try!!

    Think you're right, but having torn my meniscus, can say with some degree of certainty that he will be longer than 3 months to be in and around the first team picture. May be back in training in 3 months but don't see him playing any first team footy this side of Christmas - could be wrong of course.
