I thought Huws looked alright and got a good 60 minutes into his legs.
We didn't get the absolute thrashing our performance deserved.
I think that's everything.

What do we think will happen today then chaps? The government are going to try to pretend Saturday didn't happen and push for another vote. My money is on this not being allowed by the speaker as you can't bring the same motion back twice in the same parliamentary session. Not sure what then happens next but most commentators are saying that if the government start moving the bill it's going to get amended to death.

This is quite something in terms of seeming to disagree with yourself:
"Sean Dyche is furious but it looks like is it is a push. You can see that Jonny Evans says straight away that he was pushed in the back. If he was not pushed, he would have cleared it. That's what VAR is for but for me that is a goal. I feel like that they have interpreted it wrong. I think Sean Dyche has every right to be furious."
The shortened version is that there was a foul leading up to the goal but it should have stood anyway. I'm not quite sure how he gets there.

The Tranmere goalie has contributed to as many Town goals this season as Alan Judge. Almost twice as many if not for the linesman just now.

They seem troublingly comfortable with the idea that stoking public anger is justifiable and, indeed, with using the public's anger to try to intimidate MPs into supporting Brexit at any cost. These are dark times. Meanwhile, having behaved unlawfully once, they are openly plotting to ignore another act of Parliament so as not to ask for an extension from the EU. Have any of you sleepwalkers woken up yet?

It really is highlighting the narrow-minded parochial worldview of a worryingly large number of Brits. Imagine getting up in arms because 2% of their budget is spent on international causes. I doubt many of the angry white people on social media even donated to them anyway, their charity begins at home ethos is usually pretty literal. Our society is horribly divided and sadly it seems to be the inward-looking, mean-spirited bunch that are winning the culture war.

I've always felt that there's a player in there despite his struggles last season and I'm glad to see him coming good. That finish yesterday was top class, he's running away from the goal and manges to lash a bobbling ball home and gives the keeper no chance. Good run and cross for the third goal too. He's a good finisher and his all round game has improved, his movement especially is much better and means he's getting into dangerous positions more regularly. Playing in a front two definitely helps, as does dropping down a level, but it's pleasing to see him amongst the goals and playing well. Long may it continue.
|Two tickets for tomorrow |

I've got two tickets for tomorrow's game going spare. They are in Block D in the Cobbold Stand, the nice seats. They originally belonged to fellow forum member stevec7 and are seated next to him, I bought them for family but one of them can't go now so seeing if I can shift the pair.
DM me if interested. Can meet prematch tomorrow to give you the tickets.

From the main story on the Beeb news website:
"Responding to Mr Corbyn's newspaper article, Conservative Party Chairman James Cleverly said: "The alternative to delivering Brexit is Jeremy Corbyn in Downing Street, a man who would wreck the economy, break up our Union, is soft on crime and won't stand up for Britain.
"All Corbyn offers is chaos, delay and uncertainty.""
Said with no hint of irony from someone who is part of a government pursuing a no deal Brexit that will wreck the economy, break up the Union, and leave the UK vulnerable to being picked apart by the US. A government whose own MPs are seriously considering supporting a vote of no confidence against it (chaos anyone?) and advocating a no deal Brexit that will lead to months and years of uncertainty.
They really are utterly shameless, just spewing out propaganda and nothing more. All they have as a fig leaf to cover their own ineptitude and moral bankruptcy is blustering at others as a distraction. There is zero substance to anything this government says or does.
Boris is again trying to claim that whether we get a deal or not is down to the EU when it is absolutely clear to anyone with half a brain that if we want a deal that doesn't include the backstop the onus is on us to offer a wkable alternative. So far we've offered absolutely nothing. We're asking the EU to give us a deal and when they ask what we want our response seems to be that we don't know. We haven't known since the day after the referendum and therein lies the crux of the issue, we're trying to deliver something that three years down the line still hasn't been clearly defined.

Not going great. The conditions meant bowling was the right call for me and we've been a bit unlucky with the rain delays but the last hour or so our bowling and fielding have been poor. I think the Aussies will be pretty happy thus far.

9 months in and I still don't see a defined system or way of playing under Lambert. We pinched a narrow home win on the back of moments of quality from individuals. League 1 looks sh!te and we ought to have too much for it but I worry about us turning that superior quality into enough points over a 46 game season. Hope things turn out well but that was troubling for most of the game tonight.

Those last few pieces of the jigsaw are now in place. It'll be tough but if we miss out on promotion this season it will be a failure.

The backstop has to go, although we acknowledge we need something in Ireland to avoid a hard border but we're not sure what, but we're willing to work at it and might be up for making certain legal commitments that aren't the backstop. Glad we've cleared that up. Surely this is all about looking willing to do a deal so that he can blame the EU when we don't end up with one? It's just not serious and sums up the state of our PM and his government.
|TWTD hive mind - dongle advice needed|
at 18:53 19 Aug 2019
I'm casting off the shackles of Virgin Media this Friday guys and gals but my new broadband provider can't hook me up until the 3rd of September, annoyingly.
I work from home a bit and would like to be able to use Netflix, iPlayer etc. whilst waiting to get my broadband up and running. I'm thinking of getting a pay as you go dongle but I know nothing about them. Any recommendations or tips? I've also seen something called MiFi which sounds good as it can be used on many devices simultaneously.
