  1. To ensure they finish this season and catch up with the next I'd prefer them to scrap the league cup for a year, maybe even shorten the FA cup? And get rid of international friendlies...
  2. Kasper Ricardo Evans Soy Chilwell Ndidi Tielemans Praet Maddison Nacho Vardy I think we need all our best players on the pitch for this one. Keep Barnes and Perez as options for half time if it's not working or bring Fuchs into the back 3 and push Ricardo and Chilwell forwards.
  3. Well I think our form should only improve from here. The players might get that extra bite now they are coming under a bit of pressure. Vardy and Ndidi now back and we're due some goals.
  4. Calm all. It's still in our hands. Bear in mind City were awful today and Man U won't win every game from now until the end of the season. We are still in the driving seat. Win tomorrow and it's back to 8 points.
  5. But Rugby isn't a slower game. It varies. The culture is different but refs still get it in the neck. Biggest culture difference is that there is a no tolerance rule to back chat from players. Also communication is an even bigger factor in rugby. The refs constantly talk and communicate, from the breakdown to the video refereeing decisions. I think football can get there...it'll just take time. Certain rules in football are far more about interpretation whereas in rugby it's more black and white.
  6. Yes let's drop the league's top scorer right when we've come through our toughest patch of the season🤔 If it had crept inside the post would this even be a thread? Vardy will score, it's a matter of time, then more will follow. Knee jerk reactions after what was a positive performance are not what's needed. Glad we're not the ones picking the team.
  7. Amazing from Thiem! If Fed can't get past Djokovic then I hope we can get a new champ.
  8. Well said. I feel these topics really expose a lot of hypocracy. Most people don't even recognise their own prejudice when they are sitting on their high horse. It really does work both ways. Folau was incredibly foolish and insensitive and was rightly punished (the extent is up for debate imo). Whilst what Wigan have done is reasonably amusing on the surface I just feel it's going to add to the issue and create further division/animosity. No doubt others will say it's 'raising awareness'. Would be far more effective to just get on with it imo. If he steps out of line again then he's finished.
  9. I know Maddison keeps missing but I like the fact he's shooting. Shows confidence if anything.
  10. Was worried Vardy might do his groin again blasting the ball into the crowd like that 😂
  11. Agree. It adds so much uncertainty for defences as well. Sometimes the ball ends up going to a completely different player to what was expected. And that's on the TV screen! So happy we have him and very satisfying to watch.
  12. Isn't the shoulder part of the arm? So it's handball? The definition isn't clear. And it looked like Jonny was perfectly level. When it's that close how can they be sure the ball left the passers foot at that exact moment...
  13. At the same time as educating and advancing the modern world. As I said before, every nation has a history, and history wasn't particularly pretty or sympathetic in different eras. It was very much survival of the fittest and the British excelled. Whilst we can agree certain actions were indeed horrific and wrong, that's the beauty of hindsight and we have obviously learned from that. If you had been there you would have been raised to believe it was the right thing. And yes Hitler was actually a pretty effective leader in terms of his own people prospering, he just happened to be a twisted psychopath. Here's one for you. If it hadn't have been for the success of the British Empire then Germany would have most likely won. I think its very easy to pass judgement on past actions but none of us really have much context at all. We have it pretty good really.
  14. Then what elements of history should be celebrated? You don't think the British Empire had any positive impact at all? The series 'Empire' by Jeremy Paxman is an interesting watch if this is what interests you or if you want a broader context.
