  1. Glastonbury

    I'm a big Oasis fan, and have been for years. I though Liam's voice was actually much better than it has been live for at least 10 years, which says a lot about how bad he had got. He was actually singing the songs and holding notes at Glastonbury rather than shouting and pulling away from the mic like he has been accustomed to doing in recent years. He's never going to be a great singer, even in his prime he wasn't particularly amazing. However he's all about the passion and the emotion which I think he still gets across.
  2. General Election, June 8th

    There is a case to be made for cutting taxes to increase tax revenue, this is an interesting read: https://www.adamsmith.org/blog/tax-spending/cut-taxes-get-money/
  3. General Election, June 8th

    If she can't make it, I just saw this on twitter about registering to vote by proxy. Might be of some use if she's keen to vote?
  4. How will you vote next week?

    I saw a good similar quote in a book years ago. It was something like "A politician should never lie, but they should seldom tell the truth" That certainly seems to be what we're getting at the moment.
  5. Legalise cannabis?

    www.bbc.co.uk/news/amp/39897999 The Lib Dems will have a pledge to legalise it in their manifesto.
  6. No, the caveat seems to be "unless you're a Spurs player"
  7. Legalise cannabis?

    http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p051swg1 This is an interesting listen. It says 30,000 people use cannabis daily for medicinal uses, with there being no doubt that it has a significant affect to improve a lot of peoples lives. I use it as a painkiller to manage chronic pain. Since beginning to use it last year the difference in my life is extraordinary, I am in a lot less pain and am taking far fewer opiates to manage my condition. I'm able to do so much more than I could before, a small dose is really effective as a painkiller, and doesn't really give much of a "high" so I can still function, and certainly function much better than on other painkillers. The cannabis works so much more effectively than opiates like codeine, which seems to mask the pain rather than actually killing it. It's so infuriating that it's still a class I drug with "no medical use". As the lady in the interview says, that's just not correct...
  8. Agreed, he had a great game. I saw a tweet during the game suggesting that as Clattenburg has gone Atkinson is now our top referee, and based on that performance I don't think you can really disagree.
  9. FA Cup 2016/17

    I suppose they successfully fvcked up a two horse race by coming 3rd?
  10. FA Cup 2016/17

    Loving the excuses from the commentators about how Wembley is a different sized pitch to White Hart Lane. Presumably Stamford Bridge is identical as they didn't mention it?
  11. Record store day.

    Yeah, they didn't have a copy of the Smiths up in Leeds either. The prices on eBay for RSD releases are shameful...
  12. Record store day.

    Managed to get that too, I was surprised they still had it when I got there at 12:30. Got Decade by Neil Young as well, his 3 disc best of album. Well chuffed with getting those two.
  13. Chilwell

    Should definitely keep his place next match. I'd be happy to see Chilwell at LB with Fuchs playing on the left wing. So far this season it's been Fuchs who has been putting some of the more dangerous balls into the opposition box, certainly justification and him and Gray on the wings for the quality of ball coming in.
  14. Surely that means it was a foul on Vardy then?
  15. Agreed. I don't think it was a red, but you can see why it was given. I hope it will be rescinded, and think it should be, but wouldn't be surprised if it wasn't. The problem seemed that he didn't have complete conviction in the decision himself, and then proceeded to lose his head giving decisions and cards against us at every possible opportunity. It was as if he was trying to prove to that he wasn't trying to level things up, but instead he just let everything get out of hand.
