Well, that was bad.
at 23:18 3 Dec 2016

Not Rotherham-at-home-last-season bad, but still pretty bad.

We couldn't convert attacks into chances, let alone goals. That sums it up. And, towards the end, we didn't look all that interested, even.

Bristol were pretty bad also, but no worse than us. Maybe (as a Bristol fan agreed on the way out) a 0 - 0 draw with a very iffy penalty and a very good shot. Tho there was another penalty which ought to have gone to Bristol which wasn't given, so that evens out.

However, as always, good to meet up with the Town fans in the pub before and after. Had a brief chat with Ian Milne, seems very pleasant.

Nigel Farage willing to do anything for anybody who might give him a job
at 09:34 16 Nov 2016

D'you think he's just realised that, post the Referendum and the government having adopted Brexit as an official policy, he isn't very relevant any more?

And as for being Donald's "grate frend", can't really see him in the Harry Hopkins role - there's nothing discreet or diplomatic about Nigel.

Interesting little stat
at 20:56 2 Oct 2016

I was replying to something HARRY10 posted, when I spotted this little nugget:

At the moment, we've played eight of the teams currently in the top half of the table (all bar Newcastle, Bristol, Birmingham, Sheffield), have yet to face eight out of the eleven (besides ourselves) in the lower half.

Only Huddersfield, Reading and Wolves have had the same start against what are the strongest teams at the moment.

Newcastle, Brighton, Sheffield and poor old Rotherham are next, having played seven of the top half.

A third of the division has yet to face either 7 or 8 of the top half teams.

So (theoretically), things should get easier for us in the run up to Christmas.

we'd be dangerous.

If we hadn't given away a careless corner, I very much doubt we'd have lost that.

'... demand clear Brexit plan from May'
at 10:21 29 Sep 2016

Good God have some patience people!

We're trying to do something which has never been attempted before, nobody knows the ground rules (essentially there aren't any), several of the main players either won't talk properly or are saying things at cross-purposes, the Referendum only took place three months ago and she's been PM for just 11 weeks, meanwhile still having a country to run. It's not like we have hundreds of millions of pounds floating about to throw at the problem or large numbers of spare staff in the Civil Service.

At the same time, the government has got to get the best possible deal in something which is not only fiendishly complex, but vital to our economic health going forwards. There are layers of politics, resentment, economic and political theory to work through. There are those with a deliberate aim of making this as slow and careful as possible, to prevent the whole thing flying apart. 27 other countries all have their own agendas.

It took us 10 years to join the original EEC, it's going to be a more than six-month job to leave its far more integrated successor.

What is the bl00dy rush, anyway?

Gah! Rant over.
