Lisa Nandy, Chair of Labour Friends of Palestine has been nominated as leader by the Jewish Labour Movement.
All those cult followers who claimed the antisemitism crisis was just about Israel have nowhere to hide.
Lisa Nandy nails it in this speech.
I'm angry and sorry about where our party has got to on antisemitism. But the Jewish community deserves more than my anger and sorrow. I promise that no one will ever again be forced to choose between standing up for what's right and standing up for the Labour Party. pic.twitter.com/De4CgWEKpO
If we fail to go up this season we will not be signing Garbutt and will most likely cash in on KVY, Dozzell, Wolfenden, Drogba & Downes.
A top six league one team may also believe that they could do a better job with either Norwood or Jackson than we have. And Marcus will take their money.
Which begs the question: Is Evans happy with us being a mid table League One team?
Under Mick’s management, he showed that he didn’t have the appetite or ambition to fund a promotion push to the Premier League and if we were promoted back to the championship, it’s fairly obvious that this team needs serious investment just to stay up next season.
So is making up the numbers in League one where Evans feels most comfortable?
When I saw the Line up I suspected that Lambert had set us up for a draw and I wasn’t expecting much in terms of football.
The first half was one of the best I’ve seen this season. We did everything right except put the ball in the back of the net. Our performance could have only been improved by better crossing and attacking play from KVY/Edwards and Garbutt but the midfield of a Nolan, Skuse and Downes really clicked and we looked solid at the back.
Our determination and desire was typified by Chambers chasing a lost cause by their corner flag, which he had absolutely no chance of keeping in play yet not only did he get the ball but he forced the Sunderland defender to concede a throw in.
I said to Mach at half time that I feared we would rue the lack of an end product but we would win this game if we carried on the second half as we had the first.
Talk about a game of two halves.
We knew Sunderland would have had a rollicking at half time and they couldn’t have played as badly in the second half, but I didn’t believe we could also play the exact opposite in the final 45 as we did in the first.
Gone was the desire. Passes constantly went astray. Long balls to nobody in particular became the norm, we were second to every loose ball and made half hearted challenges as Sunderland players ran past our midfield and defence.
The defence looked in panic and it was real Keystone cops stuff as we couldn’t get the ball out of our own penalty area despite having numerous opportunities to do so. In this period we could have quite easily conceded two or three goals.
When Sunderland did score there was little urgency in our play. Far too many sideways and backwards passes. Nobody driving forwards trying to create an opportunity. We only had ten minutes to get an equaliser but we played like we had another 90.
I really don’t understand how we could be so good in the first half and so bloody awful in the second. It’s as if a lambert had expected a reaction from the home team and told our players to sit deeper and keep hold of the point.
We now need a reaction on a Tuesday night and out in a run if form against the “lesser sides” to get our season back on track.
Edit. Just seen that badger started a thread on this yesterday. Which comes as no surprise as for as long as I can remember badger has always been consistent in condemning all racism no matter where it stems from.
Yes we were appalling against Rotherham. Probably the worst performance I’ve seen since the away game at Accrington. The team didn’t work as a unit and there wasn’t one outstanding performance from a player in blue.
But the way people are posting you would think we would we were bottom three rather tan top three. We went into last night’s game top of the league and unbeaten in five.
I also see that both Judge and Edwards are being scapegoated, despite them showing very good form during our recent revival. Not one player player came out of last night’s game with any credit yet it’s the same people moaning about the same two players.
Oh and apparently it was Lambert’s fault we lost despite playing a winning, settled and unchanged team which is what our fans have calling for.
Get a grip lads and lasses. We go again on Saturday.
Witold Pilecki was a Polish cavalry officer, intelligence agent, and resistance leader who deliberately got himself sent to Auschwitz so as to be able to document the atrocities carried out in the camp tell the world what was going on.
Managed to smuggle reports out, eventually escaped, fought in the Warsaw Uprising only to be tortured and shot by the Communists in 1948 on the charges of working for "foreign imperialism" due to him working with british intelligence during the war.
With the 75th anniversary of Auschwitz liberation taking place next week there are many inspiring stories such as this one being published and well worth reading.
