Just interested to know how many would not blink an eye about drinking at work on a regular basis, ie in meetings rather than at social events. Personally I’d probably be disciplined if found to have drunk booze on the job.
I get the feeling that Boris's Churchillian complex is partly to blame for some of this conduct. I can imagine that through much of this crisis, he had visions of himself in Churchill's war room, replete with champagne, brandy and cocaine. His war room was the garden at number 10. I genuinely think that he doesn't believe that he's done anything wrong.
“Drinking and eating loads of wine and cheese is totally normal work meeting behaviour” is such an amazing defence. I think they actually believe it too! I can just imagine the internal self-justifying monologue. “Not nearly enough blow or hookers for a party. My wife was there FFS.”
As a child of the 80s, this was not really on my radar, but I noticed that we won it one year, beating Norwich 4-2 on aggregate. Where on the tin pot trophy scale was this competition? Can somebody put it on the scale of today's competitions? I can only imagine both legs of the final were keenly competed...
1. LB please Santa. No offence to Bailey, who has done well in the circumstances, but this formation requires something a bit more dynamic from our fullbacks. We're not perfect at RB but JD and KVY both have good qualities. Overall we're much stronger down the right.
2. A centre forward to take the pressure off Bonne please Santa. Pigott has not shown he is capable of being effective enough in this formation yet.
3. I hate to say it but a left-sided forward is probably needed too - nobody has grabbed that position really.
4. If we can get a top quality CB I would not be upset, Toto has his qualities but with our forward line sputtering we could do with someone with better distribution. If we could somehow clone Edmundson, I would not be upset.
I'll leave Norwood, Jackson and Nolan in a plastic carrier bag outside British Heart Foundation.
