  1. Independent fact-checker said it was entirely accurate too.
  2. We went 4 consecutive games under Hughton without a shot on target. I don't feel the need to say any more.
  3. There's an argument for playing anyone who can't play in those positions ahead of those two. Genuinely, would the team look markedly worse if Duda or Drmic were dropped and replaced with McGovern???
  4. What has Drmic done... ever? He's a **** poor player. I don't give a toss if Pukki is starting, but if he isn't then it should be Idah because at least he looks capable of being a goal threat. Drmic just ponces around doing nothing every week. Why the **** is Duda anywhere near the pitch? He's utterly useless, and will be going back to Berlin in 3 weeks. Why bother? Play Mario or even Stiepi. Won't be any worse and at least they actually give a toss about the club and have proven in the past that they can be effective. In short, yes everyone is calling for changes. Nobody is wringing their hands because Farke has made them, but because he repeatedly makes bad ones and puts **** players in from the start at the expense of players who at least offer SOMETHING.
  5. I have it on pretty good authority that the spurs deal has been done since Feb. I posted on here when I heard it. Cantwell to Liverpool was also a way down the tracks. Don't know if that was completed or not as covid hit shortly after. Im not one of these itk t**ts, but this comes directly from a relative of someone who would 100% know about this.
  6. The public obviously. To be fair, they'll fall for it too.
  7. Well this was news I didn't expect to see. They don't even have a leader at the moment so getting elected in Minneapolis is all the more impressive!
  8. https://www.edp24.co.uk/news/alleged-racist-incident-at-kings-lynn-town-ground-1-6562833
  9. So the guidance for schools released about an hour ago. The gist of it is: Wipe **** down, encourage kids to wash their hands, aside from that you're on your own, good luck, hope you all survive.
  10. All 11,000 of them? For the record, around 13,000 uk students study in the Eu. Thats more students studying in Eu than brits employed in fishing. Of course Swindo is too thick to work it all out though
  11. Thats hilarious. All that for a bog standard plain as anything, off the rack Adidas kit? Not to mention the current players being mixed in with the uefa Cup winners Whole thing is embarrassing from start to finish. Boring kit too.
  12. Beautifully done. I doubt Swindo has got it but its certainly appropriate for him
  13. better informed debate too
  14. Glad we have this thread about Bali Mumba to discuss the minutiae of Cantwell's ability
  15. To be fair I'm only NCFC due to family links (not that I believe the Liverpool, Leeds etc are in the same boat). My Dad grew up in Norfolk but moved away at 18 and has never moved back. I've never lived in Norfolk. Having a season ticket is a long held dream for me but never been viable. I do however follow us all over the country (evidenced by being in the elite 750 ). Guess it depends on the individual. I have a mate who lives in South Yorkshire but is Chelsea due to family (moved away from London when he was 2). He's a season ticket holder and even gets down for midweek home games. Think he's the exception rather than the bigger club rule though. I also have a mate who lives in Lincolnshire, claims to be "die hard" Liverpool but has never been to a game of live footy.
  16. You're wrong. His arm is past Klose but an arm cannot be given offside - it has to be part of the body you can legally score with, so it's irrelevant where his arm is as arms cannot be offside
  17. Think you're probably right on the Tories vs Labour element of anti-semitism. The problem has been a decades long concerted effort by Israeli administrations, perpetuated by US governments to conflate anti-Israel sentiment with anti-semitism when they are quite patently not the same thing. Agree to disagree on the Nazis being uniquely evil. Israel routinely denies medicine, water, food and electricity supplies into Gaza. They bomb the **** out of it, then refuse to allow shipments of building materials in to let the Palestinians rebuild their homes. Murders, torture and executions are routine. Children are put into prison. It's essentially become nothing more than a concentration camp. https://www.hrw.org/world-report/2020/country-chapters/israel/palestine Here's an excerpt from an Amnesty international report ( here: https://www.amnesty.org/en/countries/middle-east-and-north-africa/israel-and-occupied-palestinian-territories/report-israel-and-occupied-palestinian-territories/ ) How anyone can conflate what is happening with "Israel's right to defend itself" is beyond belief. Firstly, they wouldn't need to defend themselves if they gave the Palestinians the land that is rightfully theirs in a two state solution and ended their apartheid. Secondly, the use of force is utterly disproportionate. You're talking about teenagers with stones against cutting edge drones, tanks etc.
  18. I've always argued passionately that being anti-Israel doesn't make you anti-semitic. I'm not even anti-Israel as a concept, I'm anti-zionism and I'm anti-Israel in it's current form. Israel has had a apolicy of apartheid since it's inception, and the illegal settlements are illegal land grabs designed to break up any continuous Palestinian territory - they are a long game answer to preventing the two-state solution from being viable. They consistently use weapons on civilians, commit human rights abuses and murder innocents. It's not an eye for an eye when you murder thousands of civilians by carpet bombing areas as a response for a few rockets being fired over the border with no casualties. There are examples where Israeli soldiers have rounded women and children up into house under the pretence there was about to be a fight with militants, and they would keep the hosue safe, then they've circled the house with tanks and shelled it murdering all inside. The Goldstein report makes clear that Israel has used chemical weapons on civilians (a war crime) as they dropped white phosphorous over residential areas resulting in horrific mutilation through burns to the residents. Read this article - http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/world/middle_east/7960071.stm and you get a real understanding into the mentality of the IDF. They don't give a toss about protecting Israel's sovereignty. They only care about murdering Palestinians and they don't give a **** if they are women or children, innocent or insurgent. They've been going too far since at least 1967. Surprised you are only just waking up to this. The Israeli government is no better than Nazis - and as I'm sure you're aware, my grandfather was in a concentration camp, and half his family murdered by the nazis, so I don't say that lightly. That doesn't mean I'm anti-semitic, or I hate Jews. I don't in fact, I revere the conscientious objectors like Alexei Sayle, and Ilan Pappe. Are they, as Jewish people, anti-semitic because they find the Israeli government abhorrent?
  19. I'm aware that your post wasn't directed at me, but you're talking rubbish and I'm calling it out. The fact I felt the need to jump in on Swindo's behalf should tell you just how wrong you are. If you looked at the links I sent, you'd see they do far more than basic arithmetic, and a basic intro to living organisms IS still biology (and they do way more than that anyway). Unless you think that teaching young children the nuances of osmosis is the only acceptable level of primary biology. They study Biology at a level relevant to their age. I don't disagree with your point about his wife, I even helped you out by pointing out that the level of immigration in the Swindon school i looked at was incredibly low with the inference being the "foreigners holding the english kids back" point was stupid and nonsensical.... which is why I don't understand why you're so intent on arguing semantics of what does and what doesn't constitute Biology, because I'm literally a teacher, having looked at a scheme of work and curriculum for Science at primary, telling you that you are wrong and don't know what you're talking about. By the end of KS2 (when students sit a Science SAT) students should know: how plants work, what a micro-organism is, how the human body works (digestive system, circulatory system, skeletons and muscles), how some animals have adapted (evolved) to live in their ecosystem, and food chains. All of which are Biology topics. Here's a more comprehensicve list: https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/topics/z6wwxnb https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/topics/zcyycdm There's literally a Biology specific Key Stage 2 (year 6 is last year of KS2) revision guide for the Science SAT. I'll leave it there but it kind of undermines your point that Swindo is a liar when you're arguing a totally inaccurate point and won't accept that you're wrong despite being given ample evidence to the contrary. In fact, you're behaving in exactly the way Swindo does.
  20. You're arguing for the sake of it. You're totally wrong (and I'm hardly one to leap to Swindo's defence). https://www.cpps.swindon.sch.uk/maths-1/ << Look at the Y4 document and tell me that's not a comprehensive maths curriculum https://www.cpps.swindon.sch.uk/science-1/ << Look at the Science coverage sheet and explain how it doesn't cover biology. Taken from the website of a Swindon school I picked at random on a list. It also states this "Most pupils are White British. A smaller than average number of pupils is from minority ethnic backgrounds and an even smaller percentage speak English as an additional language." in the most recent OFSTED report. Take from that what you will.
  21. That header in extra time? Are you kidding? That was world class to claw that back out after seeing it late.
  22. Not one to defend Swindo, but having been in a Primary for a few weeks cross-phase experience when doing my teacher training, he is right (for once). Life and living processes does equal Biology. They sit a SATS paper in maths at the end of KS2, and do pretty much exclusively maths and english at primary because of these tests. Doesn't change the fact we all remember what he said about his wife not wanting to teach foreign kids and "they hold the english kids back", which as I'm a teacher, I know is utter ****.
