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

    At present if your employer asks you to work a 50 hour week, you can say no, I'll work my contracted hours, and they can't legally dismiss you for refusing to work that overtime - without the WTD, there's no protections for employees.

    And under the working time directive you can. Last November (2016) I worked 7am-10pm Mon-Fri, then 9-5 Saturday and Sunday (ironically to meet an EU directive), but my employers couldn't compel me to do it - I had to agree to. This isn't scrapping a restriction stopping people from working overtime, it's scrapping a restriction that makes that a decision the employee takes rather than the employer.
  3. Favourite songs, that always make you think and why?

    Well then, start with the best (i.e. stupidest):

    He carried on then dived though. Penalty and booking for Ndidi at best, but no ref will ever make that call, even though you can dive and still have been fouled.

    On the half way line when grey went past and I think MacArthur just took a grab at him? Yes, they need to stop deciding whether it's a foul or not based on whether someone goes down, but ndidi was still an idiot: there's a stamp on his ankle, he should go down there or not at all, not try to carry on, lose it then go down. If he goes down with the stamp on the ankle, yellow would be another atrocious decision, but to go on, then go down once the balls gone? We were giving Zaha pelters for that and rightly so.

    So basically Morgan should have just stopped and ignored the header, then it would have been a penalty? Nah. A fouls a foul whether the fouled party tries to play on or not.
  7. Martin Atkinson today

    Yep. 10 minutes later we had a corner; dann leaned into Morgan and nudges him off balance as he attempts the header. If you're consistent either it's a goal and no penalty, or no goal and a penalty. I'd prefer the former - there's no point in set pieces even existing if slight physicality gets pulled up. Ndidi dived, but so did Zaha. How he didn't get sent off for three clear dives and a lunge at Simpson I don't know.
  8. Palace Home Post-Match 0-3

    Yeah, and if he'd gone down there, penalty is a far shout - stepped on his ankle. He carried on then fell down when he lost it - stupid from him. He took a couple of steps then went down - the kick didn't take him down. It's a dive.
  9. Palace Home Post-Match 0-3

    Abysmal. Could have gone different if Iborras goal had stood but they deserved that - we were shit, didn't turn up until second half then killed ourselves with a stupid red

    So so shit from minute one.
  11. We need to talk about Wilfred Ndidi

    One game ban for domestic right - so just misses the cup game?
  12. Palace Home Match Thread

    Not for a tackle that was never a foul though.
  13. Palace Home Match Thread

    Need two, send on Leo Why did I waste my time rushing across Great tackle Simpson, yellow. You **** Atkinson
  14. Palace Home Match Thread

    Why have we taken to ten men in the 83rd minute to start playing with tempo and aggression going forward?
