  1. That was my favourite strip Double N. The green socks made us look a bit continental. I had a green singlet, yellow hipsters and work those old silky scarves around my forehead like a bandana. I don't know why that style faded? I've searched but there isn't even a programme available for my first match which was 20 August 1960 against Sheffield Untied.

    Correct me if I'm wrong but why is a monthly pass 50p cheaper than a match pass?

    Three f*cking years and billions wasted then! How many hospitals is that then? Just so you can control your borders again. Well apart from the Irish one. And stop them nasty people coming into this country to work. Played Golf against a Bank Manager yesterday and I couldn't believe that he was moaning about the minimum wage, and how he as Vice President of his club, would have to raise the wages of his staff. We are already paying a £1000 a year to play and now we are going to have to pay more was his pathetic cry. Brexit was going to be his way of bringing the hoi polloi back to its grateful knees again.

    All I can add is that over the years, we have brought in strikers who didn't have that instant appeal or record. And they turned out fine eg Pukki, Roberts. So I am happy we have a new striker who cost nothing.

    'Welcome to the House of Commons tea-room, Mr. Hezbollah' will do for a start That is really sad. If you believe any of that drivel then I pity you. Asked whether he still regarded Hamas and Hezbollah as “friends”, the Labour leader said: “No. It was inclusive language I used which with hindsight I would rather not have used. I regret using those words, of course.” But rather than the staunch Tory mantra of we don't negotiate with terrorists, which we know now is a lie, he realises that the only way for peace in that region is inclusivity. He is a supporter of All Ireland as a Republic. Something many fair people think is the best solution. He is not an anti Semite but in fact a critic of the Israel Government. Once again that many fair people are. If you disagree with Labour policies, then fair enough, but don't just repeat what the Tory press would have you believe.

    give it a break ! That is a bit rich when we get the never ending Corbyn is a terrorist loving, pro IRA anti Semite. He is indecisive but he isn't the rest. What exactly have you heard Corbyn say that is those things?

    Women’s World Cup

    "Steph Houghton doesn't go down easily" says Pearce. I thought it was all a right shambles. Didn't really think it was a back pass. Thought the VAR decisions were mixed so not 100% and then one they should have referred on Parris was ignored and produced just a yellow. The ref got two VAR decisions totally wrong so how is it working? Too many England players cannot pass it consistently and Houghton just runs a round at the back doing very little and leaving to the others and just sweeps up and the pundits eulogise. Bright can't pass but she does jump and tackle. Parris only beats her woman now and again and gives the ball away too much. If it wasn't for Bronze and Scott we wouldn't be where we are.

    Move Ground to move forward.

    I haven't been to Carrow Road since Chris Hughton's first home game wwhen I took two of my Grandsons on a behind the scenes visit to the ground. From what I saw, it did the job required. I have no idea of any maintenance issues of course and accept that the River End is very old now and the City stand not far behind it. But if we are talking of increasing capacity or a new ground just to increase income then that is up to the number crunchers at the club. But I would imagine that many of those that have season tickets at the moment are happy with the ground location, capacity and facilities. I would think that it would be unlikely that the club would envisage a clamour for too many more seats. I do not believe there will ever be above 30K on a regular basis.

    Top of The League !!!

    It is something that has been discussed many times over the years. The obvious solution is to stop buying them but I fear the clubs know of fans desire to wear their colours. The same applies to any clothing for someone who wants something more unique than Primark.

    Oliveira - 30k a week

    You can't blame any player for accepting what is offered, nor for trying to maximise his income during a short career. Good point if it is totally correct. But we do know in some cases that the introduction of agents rather than the player or PFA, have made wage bargaining a bit different. And it does go further than just wages. And further to the NFL example, the recruitment of players is mainly done differently to football so although a cap or even a league maximum is desirable, it would be met by opposition from nearly all, apart from spectators, within the game.

    Did you ever get sent up a chimney when you were an apprentice KG I nearly got sent down from school! I was fascinated as a kid when the Chimney Sweep, (didn't look anything like **** Van ****), came to the house. Shoving these poles up a hole in a dirty sheet. Same as when the meter man came round and counted out all the foreign coins. But my favourite was when they emptied the drains in the road. Shoving that dirty great pipe into the drain and sucking up all the rubbish.

    What happened to the civil war/riots that Moyo promised us if we didn't leave at the end of March?? I guess the bones lied to him. He will have to ask David Icke from now on.

    I'm not sure what I did to USSR or China to make them kill so many of their citizens. Are you one of those people who feel white people should feel guilty about everything that ever happened, like forever? I don't feel guilty about anything that has happened without my involvement. I queried why you chose USSR and China, just because of their "communist" rulers. Communist states have not properly existed. The governing regimes of those two countries are far more conservative than the shower in this country so in reality are not lefties. Just study the arrogance of their leaders and spokesmen and you will see they are so far removed from Socialist governments. Why did Britain invent concentration camps? Why did we until well into the second half of the 20th century still send children to Australia? Why were single pregnant women put into mental institutions and their babies taken away? Why starve the Irish? I could go on. All that happened and its history. Our country when it was ruled by the Whigs and Tories. But if we keep digging up history to prove a point we wouldn't be trading with Germany and Japan would we. But you curiously bring up about USSR and China as if it proves that if you aren't right wing you are a mass murderer.

    Under socialism/communism even the smart people suffer (often killed by the state for good measure). Around 100 millions in USSR, another 100 millions in China. How many more do you need to die to know that you're on the wrong side of history? Curious, very curious. No question of balance in your arguments I suppose. No mention of what we did to the world before the left wing ever managed to govern. The two countries you mentioned came about by revolution not evolution. And what caused those revolutions?
