  1. Politics Thread (encompassing Brexit) - 21 June 2017 onwards

    I think a typical argument against it is that it doesn't produce majority government, and so is less stable and efficient. Though examples like Germany employing it reasonably successfully and FPTP failing two out of the last three times to produce a majority government undermines that somewhat. Another argument against it would be the severance of the MP-constituency link, with one MP accountable to a single electorate for raising their concerns, holding surgeries, etc. This would still be possible with multi-member constituencies but it would be much easier for the MPs to pass the buck, and much harder to directly represent a more homogenous area. I am probably in favour though, it does seem to combine third party representation with an inability for fringe parties to hold the balance of power.

  3. The Heat

    It is well hot. Might be too hot.
  4. Who should we sign (asset strip) from relegated clubs

    Højbjerg looks a good player whenever I see him. Only played 15 games this season though?

  6. Burnley post match 2-1 loss

    No one should play from here on in who won't be here next season. No more Morgan, Simpson, Okazaki, what's the point in even playing Mahrez?
  7. Adrien Silva

    Loves chipping it out of play.
  8. Burnley away match thread

    Our movement off the ball is terrible, both midfielders not providing enough options. Then we loft half hearted balls towards our tiny strikers and they clear. It's genuinely terrible, we have no blueprint or strengths at all.

    Has Okazaki touched the ball?
  10. Champions League 2017/18

    Dodgy pen he's pushed him over and kicked him in the chest, surprised the defender wasn't sent off.

  13. Premier League, 2017-2018 Season Thread

    How is 1 win and 8 draws only 8 points? I know it's not your graphic.
  14. Championship 2017/18

    Hahahahaha Stewart Downing what a tragic footballer.

  17. Premier League, 2017-2018 Season Thread

    Stat padding is my least favourite development in football terminology of the last 5/10 years or probably ever.
  18. Corner Takers

    Our corners have been poor for the majority of the season, and we haven't scored many until tonight... 2, taken by Matty James. So in an ideal situation, who'd be taking corners? James? Waghorn? Gallagher? Marshall?
  19. Dragovic

    I don't.

  21. Bournemouth post match 1-1

    Papering over the cracks, we won't have Riyad next year to bail us out. We are horrid at nearly every part of football and today was another toothless and inept display.
  22. Bournemouth Home Match Thread

    Can Albrighton just **** off?
  23. Bournemouth Home Match Thread

    Horrendous, horrendous display so far. Can't even rip into the lack of cutting edge and end product because we haven't been able to do the basics like pass a ball or win a tackle or run into the right position.
  24. Bournemouth Home Match Thread

    That was a penalty at first glance for me. What the ****ing hell are we playing at?
  25. Bournemouth Home Match Thread

    We genuinely have a pathetic football team.
