    For those thinking we should let Holty go....

    [quote user="lappinitup"]

    [quote user="smooth"]For me holty is not that key player to build a team around....[/quote]

     

    You keep repeating this "build a team around" nonsense. If it was true, what do you think would happen if that player was injured? Would games have to be postponed until he regained his fitness? Ridiculous idea! These days clubs have squads using different formations and tactics which change from game to game. No-one builds a team around one player.

     

    Your repeated reference to Grant Holt as "the tyre fitter" is disrepectful too. We all know how he started out but he''s been a successful footballer for many years now and is currently captain of a Premier League side and one of our top scores of all time. The guy''s a legend and deserves more respect than some goon trying to belittle him all the time.

     

    Just as the pant wetters were proved wrong last season, I hope Grant Holt stays with Norwich City and has really good season to prove the doubters wrong again.

    I don''t understand. Are you saying we shouldn''t discuss the effects of immigration on our country?

    [/quote]

    I''m saying that without immigration and the subsequent cheap workforce our economy would be in much worse shape that it currently is. And you can file that under FACT.

    There are always downsides as well as benefits to belonging to any large organisation. But overall belonging to the EU has brought the UK trading benefits that it would not enjoy if it wasn''t a member. And this will only increase if the mooted mega US-EU trade deal goes ahead. The UK would really be out in the cold if it wasn''t part of that. And not just economically. The UK''s political influence in the world, such as it is, comes from being part of the EU. Otherwise we are just another middle-ranking nation. The "special relationship" with the US does not exist. The only country with which the US has such a tie is Israel.

    [/quote]

    I agree with what you are saying here completely but I don''t see how it relates even vaguely to the benefits of immigration? Can you enlighten me please?

[/quote]

    But you choose to conveniently ignore the contribution of an (exploited) immigrant workforce to our economy. How convenient.

    Why is this myth?[/quote]I''d also be interested to hear a cogent answer from the ''enlightened'' lefties instead of their constant rubbishing of factual information.....

    Because ''quantitative easing'' is a hilarious euphemism for simply printing more money backed by nothing. Ever heard of Weimar hyperinflation?

    Alternative Micheal Turner songs?

    Fair enough. But he is one of the players on our books at the moment who I think is proven to be worth his place in a team going forwards in the Prem and I can''t see how it helps for thousands of people to be singing a song which obviously p***es him off.

    NWCC''s song has got it all and, heaven forbid, expresses support for one of our better players. What a wacky idea :-)

    but, as you were ... :-)

    You sure about that? Cos your contributions to this thread certainly make you seem simple to the onlooker.
