Interesting proposals for the shipping industry
at 12:56 12 Nov 2019

Surely there is little interest in the shipping industry to become tree huggers? If the poles melt and there is more water we will need more ships?

EFL trophy fan boycott
at 12:50 12 Nov 2019

Because clubs treat the League Cup and the FA Cup with utter contempt - then take part in this travesty which is the first step to having Premier League B teams in competitive first team football.

Anyone who cared one iota about league football would give this competition a very wide berth. And should have stopped going to FA Cup and League Cup games as well for that matter if supporting a team like Town.

Election Leaflets
at 12:47 12 Nov 2019

You need to look a bit more carefully then. Johnson is looking to be a bit more powerful than a President as he has already shown his contempt for the sovereign parliament - and sees nothing wrong in breaking the law to stop the democracy he pretended to campaign for in the EU referendum - and sees nothing wrong in being a pathological liar.

Election Leaflets

Quite right too, this is a general election NOT a presidential election. You should be voting for the candidate and the policies of the party. The 'strong leader' of the tories who invited you to vote for her is not even in cabinet any more, nor is Brexit done. Anything and everything can change after an election.

Sounds like Farage is about to hand the election to Johnson
at 14:06 11 Nov 2019

Remind me again how many seats Farage has won when standing himself or his various parties? I doubt he will improve on that rather large zero this time round either.

Sorry to those of you that were around in 1978, but the FA Cup is pointless...

Re: Job applications
at 14:02 11 Nov 2019

The fact that you see yourself as 'overqualified' for a job might communicate itself to employers off the written word as well in an interview. Not sure it is possible to be 'overqualified' for a job as there is always a balance between realistic opportunity and necessity.... not to mention the balance between employing someone who is cheaper viz a viz someone with a firm knowledge of what they are doing. The sheer banality of the job market was best illustrated when I worked for a listed company many years ago - power office next to the head of recruitment. One liquid lunchtime he was moaning about the problem by being inundated with CV's from graduates in the annual round up. His solution? To chuck out any not from oxford, Cambridge or Durham. And where did you go? I asked. Hull, he replied with no sense of irony.

Sir Alf Stand ..

Presumably this is just a wind-up because most of the inhabitants of Churchmans are actually of a more mature age group. Funnily enough - most of them used to be inhabitants of the North Stand - and many of them also find the antics of the tenants of their previous stand somewhat puerile and amusing. You'll move too in time - when you grow up.

Not at all. It simply shows that being selected i a second-choice side that is tasked with losing is demoralisng and demotivating

A make shift team and a draw...is that what we really wanted?
at 09:10 10 Nov 2019

They ARE in the squad.... simply not good enough to be in a team. Given there is only another joke cup game on the horizon, Lambo's team selection was embarassing AND inexplicable.

The tiger next door
at 09:07 10 Nov 2019

On the other hand it is rather reassuring being able to walk the dog without fear of being eaten by a tiger. I suspect the benefits of living in close proximity to tigers is exagerrated by guardian-reading tree-huggers living on the other side of the world.

Why do our Managers not care about cup competitions?
at 09:03 10 Nov 2019

You've answered your own question. It's because you pay to watch these cynical, outrageous farces. Support the FA Cup and refuse to support clubs that treat it with contempt.

Don't vote tactically
at 13:56 7 Nov 2019

Tactical voting is just a convenient label for something that has always existed in this country because of disproportional representation so pointless that 50% see no point in voting any more.

In a voting system where 42% of the of the vote entitles you so pontificate about delivering the will of the British people this is entirely as it should be. And given that the Conservatives no longer represent the bulk of their traditional voters, nor Labour - it is to be expected that a huge proportion of people who get off their backsides and vote 'tactically' ie sensibly, not tribally.

Labour to retain freedom of movement
at 13:39 7 Nov 2019

The point of leaving the EU whilst staying in a customs union is to leave the political union which we did not have a referendum to join whist staying in the economic market that we did. Seems entirely logical with the added bonus of a referendum to voice your opposition or support

Anyone who thinks that Judge isn’t a good player
at 13:40 6 Nov 2019

You make a case for the opposition. Nobody is denying that Judge WAS a good player before his injury... and is presumably still capable of fleeting occasional cameos if played in a sensible position. BUT he's less than half the player he was and doesn't want to be here - and is shoehorned in here there and everywhere, where he has to most people's eyes been less than ineffectual at best.

Jesus, a quick flick through TWTD this morning

To be fair a lot of the comments have come from those daft enough to go all the way to grim Rochdale in the grim North on a grim November night - and then endured a grim game.... the only goal coming from someone they love to moan about. Those grim memories will only get worse on the grim journey home. MInd you they can wear their badge with pride...they went to Rochdale on a wet and windy Tuesday night in November...where were you?
