So how are Harper, El Miz and Carrol feeling this morning...
at 17:47 21 Jan 2022

Well no, because what you actually posted was that people do this everytime and then referenced the business in the Summer. Which is the bit I countered, as those concerns have proved to be with foundation so hardly worthy of the whole ‘Dolly was right’ act

No one is panicking that nothing else is happening currently and the post you quote isn’t doing that so I have no idea where you’ve got that idea from. The post you cite also isn’t unreasonable IMO (which is a surprise for a makin post!)

Might be worth actually reading your own posts before mic dropping in future Dollers

Harper and El Mizouni on the loan list
at 17:08 21 Jan 2022

Sounds like we agree on the loan bit but not the contract. I hope to be proved wrong but I just don’t see it, that contract must be pretty minimal in the scheme of things - I just don’t see how he makes it short of really stepping up somewhere, which seems unlikely

‘Man who spent first 3 months of the season putting poor results down to players needing time to gel now claims addressing key holes in the squad late in the window was excellent business’

No one has claimed the latest signing means nothing else has happening. They’ve just noted that it is an odd signing given the other options we have currently in CM and with other positions appearing to be a more pressing need. Which IMO is an entirely reasonable outlook, just as it was in the Summer when we signed a number of attacking players whilst other positions looked to be in dire need of attention

Harper and El Mizouni on the loan list

Think the writing looks to be on the wall here for El Miz really. Given the level at which we’re operating in the market I think youngsters will have to have that extra something to break through, and given that he hasn’t been able to do so yet it looks unlikely to happen now. I guess him absolutely ripping it up on loan may change things but he has undisclosed minimum fee to League Two in the Summer written all over him IMO

Harper just looks like a flop, he can’t get in and his career is probably already in danger of heading one way. In that respect a loan is probably a positive for him really. That said if Bakinson doesn’t add something we’ll have basically traded a permanent player for a loan of a similar ilk, which makes it a bit of an odd one really!

Dolly: has pop at people questioning transfer business

Me: points out that those people haven’t been proven wrong

Dolly: ‘wahhh, stop having a pop at me’

Never change Dollers

Of course they don’t happen in exact priority order, that doesn’t mean people are wrong to question signing a number of players in one position where there are glaring holes elsewhere in the squad, or indeed signing a player now where we have significant numbers

And it’s odd to keep pushing the point that people were stupid to question it in the Summer when by and large those concerns have proven accurate

But if helps yes you’re right Dolly, everything has gone swimmingly, what a bunch of losers they were

Johnson approval rating
at 14:25 21 Jan 2022

The Scottish vote under New Labour held up fine under New Labour - across their spell in power they polled 900k-1.2m and between 39-45% of the share throughout. Looking solely at the start and the end overall votes dropped by 100k when comparing 1992 and 2010 but the share was actually increased by 3%

It was only post-Brown that the vote crashed, firstly under Milliband and then another 6 points in 2019 under Corbyn

I’ve pointed this out to DK before but for some reason he still insists on peddling the myth (lie) that New Labour lost the Scottish vote

Johnson approval rating
at 13:07 21 Jan 2022

Not really true re Milliband, whilst Cameron’s rating wasn’t always favourable Milliband consistently polled lower across 2010-2015. There was certainly nothing like the kind of figures Johnson is now seeing

Can’t really comment on 1992 as leader approval rating data doesn’t appear to be available in the same way as for recent elections. What you state would certainly figure there though given the leads Labour generally held during that period - but worth also noting that 1992 was a particularly weird election for a number of reasons and therefore something of an outlier!

Ah yes, this one again. Because those fretting that we were signing a lot of attacking players and needed to bring defenders in quickly have been proven spectacularly wrong, haven’t they?

2019 Tory MP defects to Labour

Yes agree with all of that, I was just countering the suggestion (lie) that the rot in Bury South had set in before Corbyn, which clearly wasn’t the case

at 14:23 20 Jan 2022

Balance of votes? Labour increased their vote count by c2k in 2015 compared to 200 by the Tories, and a % increase as outlined by GB. In 2017 they did get a further jump but the Tories gained 5,000 votes too, and then won the seat in 2019. Pretty evident where that turnaround happened, and it wasn’t under Milliband as much as you might want to pretend otherwise

Bristol Post seem to think our option to make Bakinson's deal
at 13:35 20 Jan 2022

Am I missing something as I am reading that as the opposite - ie. That Bristol City have only activated their option to stop him leaving on a free (and presumably to instead receive a fee)?

Sorry you’re right, if you ignore inconvenient things like winning less games and gaining more points then yes this years squad is performing 1,000,000x better. Have a biscuit, or even better a 🍪

My argument is that last years squad performing better under their predecessor than Paul Cook, and better than the subsequent better squad under Paul Cook, rather suggests the dreadful performances at the back end of last season may have had more to do with Paul Cook than the players. And therefore makes the whole throwing under the bus thing rather silly

But hooray for Cookie! ❤️🍪
