    Jonny Evans

    Amartey would have cut it out if he didnt let his man get across him. That’s being over critical of both though. It was a pretty normal goal to concede. Nothing overly glaring about it. Regards Evans in general, he was vastly better than he was against Wolves so if he continues to gain further match sharpness and improves accordingly, he’ll be a very good signing for us. EDIT - My mistake. Completely down to Rachid.

    Jonny Evans

    Nah he was in the right position. Amartey let his man get on the wrong side. Evans played one shit ball early on but that aside, I thought he was very good today.

    Lovely English referees

    All 3 officials were worse than dreadful today. Shocking that Maguire didn’t even get a free kick for that foul near the end.

    Huddersfield H post match thread 3-1

    Thought Amartey was excellent today. Would like to see him continue at RB and have Ricardo in an attacking role. Iheanacho was very good too as the game moved on. The central midfield partnership i’m liking alot. Huddersfield are pretty poor but their central midfield is probably their strongest area and I thought Mendy and Ndidi coped well. Mendy has been superb since he came in for me. Streets ahead of Silva.

    So many "puel out" calls from fans, so who replaces him?

    Nige, Shakey, Walsh. We all know it’s gonna happen. Lets make it happen now.

    I was snarky in my reply which I shouldn’t have been so I apologise for that. That last sentence really is heartbreaking. Like I just said to Webbo, I hope to God it ends up being worth it.

    Well for me its too late as my clients couldn’t hang around but I fvcking absolutely hope to God that i’m wrong and Brexit is the dogs bollocks. At least i’ll know that it was worth it and some good has come out of all of this.

    Tough shit. This is the world now. You dont give a fvck about my problems and I sure as hell dont give a fvck about yours. So for the rest of the foreseeable future, the only way to avoid it is to burst your fvcking eardrums and deafen yourself.

    Financial services specialising in aviation and renewables. The reasons its gone under are many but all based on uncertainty. I’m learning to speak French as I may have to re-locate if I want to rescue it which is a crying shame as I fvcking love this country.

    You’ve basically summed up in a few words why people get so upset at still staunch leave voters. If you dont get it now, you probably never will.

    You were kind enough to reply so i’ll pay you the same courtesy. How was everything I was told bullshit you ask? Well because what I was told was a lie. Two examples:- 1 - Regional Growth Fund I was told the funding provided by the EU would be continued indefinitely. The exact words were, ‘its our money anyway so why wouldn’t we?’ Lie. 2 - The community hospital is staffed by a majority of EU nationals. Are their futures and residency to be gauranteed immediately? ‘Of course’. I was told. We welcome everyone and if Brexit won the vote, all of their rights would be gauranteed immediately. Lie. Most of the staff went home (much to the delight of some bloodthirsty leavers in the town) because they were told their status couldn’t be gauranteed. Now because of this, 2 wings of the hospital are closed and its likely the whole place will be shut down by Easter. Regards the benefits of leaving, there quite simply aren’t any. I was a proud leaver so set about after the vote of actually looking in to the EU and its workings in order to prove Project Fear was bollocks but also to justify my position. I found nothing apart from the opposite. All the shite Farage and co spouted was a spin. Just short of absolute fabrication so they could still say it, but the implications they used to dupe people are a disgrace. On to the leave project not being given a chance. There was no project. Which is why everyone distanced themselves (Farage resigning immediately etc). May is a remainer. Johnson, Gove, Fox etc all know it and if they truly believed in Leave, they wouldn’t have dropped out of the race for leadership. They did because they know the truth. They know that the picture they painted couldn’t be delivered. There is no EU boogeyman holding us up. Ask yourself something, why does not a single Leave politican, have an plan. Why do none of them having spent their entire political lives, wanting this, have a complete chapter and verse solution to things like the Irish Border rather than just saying, ‘well the Good Friday agreement isnt that important’? It’s bizarre. When I first started my business, I couldn’t even get a bank account without providing a complete chapter and verse on every single nuance that I may or may not come up against. This is decades of trade arrangements and development and they’re trying to wing it. That is a disgrace. Families being split isn’t life. It certainly isn’t a price worth paying for what we’re being served. My aunty and grandmother exposed racist views that were shocking to say the least. Literally I couldnt believe what I was hearing with some of it and all based on shit they’d been fed about 70m muslim Turks, literally poised at their ports like 100m sprinters waiting for the gun to come here and get a council house. The vote was simple. You’re 100% correct on that. The problem was it shouldn’t have been and now we know that and can see it. We can see that politicians are hiding behind the ‘will of the people’ and the hope that pride will conquer reason. When it falls to shit (and it unfortunately will), they’ll say, ‘the people wanted it so we have to make it work’. They’ll blame us. Not each other. Not the complete lies we’ve all been fed but us. You, me, your brother, sister, remainer or brexiteer. We’ll get the blame and we’ll have to live through it if we make it that far. I’m sorry you’re sick of it. So am I. I dont know if i’ll make it as far as to hear it, but I pray to God that some day very soon, i’ll hear you and any other leaver say, ‘I told you so’ because i’ve never wanted to be more wrong about anything.

    Pleased to meet you. I voted leave because I believed what I was told to my face by a sitting MP and his leave campaign team. Every word of it has turned out to be bullshit. Not only that, my business is fvcked, a load of my clients businesses were fvcked so they relocated to the mainland and others will have to follow if the ‘no deal scenario’ plays out and others have already gone under. I was happy that Leave won because I voted for it and bought into the vision of ‘Brittania rules the waves’ but that was really ignorant of me. What I failed to see was what was right before my eyes and that was the progression of industry had developed and flourished because of things like the single market and the customs union. Passporting for financial services is hugely essential for the operation of the Insurance industry and is at real risk. Businesses have been set up and jobs created on the back of the ease of trade we have. What’s become clear to me is that what Brexiteers want to achieve is possible. It absolutely is. The problem is, we’ll need to reinvent the wheel to do it over the course of probably 20-30 years of hardship and the absolute best result we can hope for is to end up close (not better as that is actually impossible due to the legal nature of existing trade agreements) to what we have now. Even to achieve that, what we’d need is for most countries in the world to bend over and let us ram them from behind which isn’t going to happen. The government wanted to look to be strong so triggered Article 50, I get that. The vote was democratic, I get that too, but what I dont get, is when there isn’t a single thinf left to cling to and when the bloody Prime Minister of our country, quite obviously lies to our faces about what’s to come, how there are still people that say, ‘yeah. This is exactly what I wanted’. The last 4 months i’ve been on my fvcking knees and it’s all down to this shit. Everything I worked for has near enough gone. My health has deteriorated and quite frankly, there have been times when I could quite easily have swam out to sea and let myself go. If we continue down the path we’re going, we’re fvcking oursleves for no other reason than pride and ego. We’ve been fooled by people like Mogg who sound and look convincing but really, they’re nothing more than snakeoil salesman. All around me I hear conversations full of spite and hatred, friends and families split and divided. If this is the future it disgusts me. I wish we could go back to before this was even a spark in David Camerons mind. I want my country back.

    Rachid Ghezzal signs.

    He scored against Fleetwood. Great. So many low standards here to get people excited. Sorry but my member needs a lot more stroking than that to even get a weep of jizz.
