    I think our league position justifies a negative view even though most games we've had periods when we've played well. Despite a win, today's game confirms my belief that we'll be relegated.

    On this evidence there are not three teams worse than us. Still going to be relegated unfortunately

    There a beautiful irony in this headline story from the Telegraph. The UK is going to open trade talks with the US before they start talks with the EU. This is a brilliant move by Boris to subvert the negotiating tactics of Brussels. From being told that the UK will be back of the queue by Obama, Boris is telling the Europeans that they are behind the Americans in the queue to have a FTA with the UK. The power has shifted from the Continent to London. This has Cummings stamp of genius all over it. Boris Johnson is expected to formally open trade talks with the US before he begins discussions with the European Union, the Telegraph has learned. US diplomats believe the Prime Minister is poised to seek Cabinet authorisation to open trade talks directly with America on a visit to Washington next month. British civil servants have drawn up advice for ministers on the “pros and cons” of starting trade talks with America before beginning them with the European Union, the Telegraph understands. A UK government source who has seen the advice said the argument for going to the US first is to show: “We mean business and we’re not messing around.” It would also aim to avoid becoming “trapped” by Brussels negotiators like Theresa May was, and “negate some of the concerns of the EU trying to play the ball in the way they want”, the source said. “The political signal would be - 'We’ve got the capacity to do this at the same time, don’t hold this up'.” A source briefed directly on plans in Washington said the US was “impatient to get started”. As RockThe Boat pointed out a long time ago, a FTA with the US will be quick and easy to do, as both sides want to get it done. I now predict the deal will be brilliant for the UK as it will weaken the position of the EU when member states see what is on offer for countries that leave the EU. This deal will put so much pressure on the EU it will eventually force it to collapse where upon it will be replaced by a US/UK structured Europe with us taking a leading role in place of Germany. You read it here first.

  9. I wonder if our expectations are set by how City were doing when we first started following the team? For the first ten years of my support Norwich were a lowly second-tier team, so anything better than that seems a bonus to me. Therefore I am happy with our current status and think that being a top-26 side in the country is a challenging objective. Style of play matters to me a lot, so I am happy to see how the football has developed under Farke, even though I was fairly sceptical in that first season. Last year was fantastic, and this year is a recognition of just how difficult it is to survive at this level. Still, we play very well at times even if we can't keep it going for ninety minutes, and the team are still trying their best on the pitch despite it must be very disheartening for them to keep losing. I hope that they keep at it until the end of the season and I will support them all the way if they do, even if the results are not good. Life still goes on if we are relegated and I think we are good enough to bounce back again - and that means another thrilling season in prospect next year. So while it would be better if we were not struggling, I'm still overall happy with things and the general direction of the club which I believe is upwards.

    That's a straightfoward lie, Herman. Read the Washington Post of January the third: Jan. 3, 2020 at 8:02 a.m. GMT BAGHDAD — A U.S. airstrike killed Iranian Quds Force commander Qasem Soleimani in Baghdad late Thursday, the Pentagon said, a dramatic escalation of tensions between the two countries that could lead to widespread violence in the region and beyond. Defense Secretary Mark T. Esper said the Pentagon had taken “decisive defensive action” against Soleimani, the revered military figure who had close links to a network of armed groups backed by Iran across the Middle East and, according to the United States, bore responsibility for hundreds of American deaths. “Gen. Soleimani was actively developing plans to attack American diplomats and service members in Iraq and throughout the region,” Esper said in a statement. “This strike was aimed at deterring future Iranian attack plans.” Time to quit your BS, Herman.
