    Not one positive thing has happened in half an hour.

    Southampton Home Match Thread

    The amount of simple passes we have misplaced is absolutely criminal for a professional team.

    We have been shocking in every single position.

    Puel 'Facing the sack' - reports

    Did a hell of a lot more than Okazaki, and has a track record of scoring more than once a season.

    Puel 'Facing the sack' - reports

    Playing the likes of Fuchs and Simpson is fine, playing the likes of Okazaki and James is not fine, that's asking to get beaten. There is zero reason why Maddison doesn't start that game today. Recruitment leaving us with Iheanacho and Okazaki as back-up strikers is absolutely woeful.

    Newport post match thread 2- 1

    January 6th and season over, looking forward to next season, quite a few out there who should've made their last appearance for the club.

    Newport away match thread

    They’re playing to their strengths, we’re playing to what? What are we trying to do?

    Newport away

    This is the sort of game Gray thrives in, weird not to start Soyuncu too.

    Harvey Barnes - West Brom (loan)

    Nah he reckons we've recalled him on the quiet without West Brom or Barnes saying anything.

    What's in the news?

    Corbyn had nothing to do with a march for a second referendum given he is explicitly rejecting calls for a second referendum.

    Unpopular Opinions You Hold

    Think you're probably right that reintroducing oppressive institutional homophobia is an unpopular opinion.

    Everton Post match Thread.

    Very good defensively, relied on an error to create anything up front but we'll take that away at a rival, Everton are a terrible soulless club.

    Everton Away Match Thread

    Two pretty poor teams, when we have the ball at CB we have zero idea of how we're going to work it forward, we don't have players making the right movements so we lose the ball very quickly, it's all very well blaming individuals but when our wingers are pressed on their first touch and they don't have a couple of options then it's difficult to keep the ball and move up the pitch.
  18. Ben Foster is so unnecessarily rash, seems like he gives away loads of penalties where he doesn't need to commit. Walcott is also somehow atrociously bad at taking the ball round a keeper.

    Chelsea 0 - 1 Leicester Post Match

    Well no, you said he'd found the winning formula but that's no good if it only works away at the top teams, it is very possible that today's winning formula won't be used in many matches at all. Though I'll be interested to see how it does against Man City if he plays the same side.

    Chelsea 0 - 1 Leicester Post Match

    The winning formula for Chelsea away might be a little different to the winning formula for Cardiff at home, would you not want to play an extra attacker in that situation?

    Chelsea 0 - 1 Leicester Post Match

    First league win at Chelsea for 18 years, really good performance second half.

    Why do our defenders take the penalties?

    Maguire scored. Fuchs obvious penalty taker. Soyuncu shite but scored in last round. Alternatives: Ricardo (another defender) Simpson (another defender) Ward (goalkeeper) Albrighton (clearly doesn't fancy himself) Wilf (doesn't seem a natural penalty taker) Hamza (as above) Gray (perhaps he was 5th?)

    Brexit - Has anybody actually changed their minds?

    The result of the first referendum was an open-ended question with radically competing visions within the 52% of how the outcome should be delivered, it makes perfect sense for the people to decide exactly how they want Brexit implemented, or if the last two and a half years has demonstrated that leaving the EU will not bring the benefits to the country they thought it would. A referendum regarding membership of a supranational organisation and various concrete international treaties is not the same as periodic elections to a national assembly.

    Brexit - Has anybody actually changed their minds?

    Which definition of democracy says that once a decision has been made by the people, it can be overturned by the people under no circumstances?

    Brexit - Has anybody actually changed their minds?

    How is asking for more democracy undemocratic?
