We are still the club that has provided the 2 most successful England managers (even if second is a tie).
|What was the last thing you learnt?|

And I don’t mean that Danny Dyer is able to provide astute summaries of Brexit progress. Or that we should have sacked Mick a lot earlier.
I’ve been thinking about learning something new as life’s lacking a bit of zip these days (I’m tending towards surfing, but that’s by the by).
It got me thinking that a lot of us must get stuck in ruts, even if we don’t realise and/or it doesn’t bother us.. We like what we like, we probably stick to the same hobbies and pass times, etc. About 12 years ago now I learnt to scuba dive and went from knowing nothing to my Advanced Open Water qualification over a year or two. It was f*cking amazing (‘scuse French). Sadly I haven’t kept it going, but I vividly remember that the thrill of learning something completely new and being competent at it gave me such a buzz at the time. I’d like to get feeling back again..
So let’s be ‘avin you. What have you done lately to learn something new? In the most extreme cases it would be completely different and out of your comfort zone, but it doesn’t have to be. I may even change my mind about surfing if something else grabs my attention.
|Nothing on May's lie and magic money tree?|

Standards are slipping.
We've gone from May's £600m Brexit dividend with a "minor" tax top-up, to Hunt (the *unt) confirming that Brexit savings (if any) won't be "anywhere near enough" all in the space of a couple of days.
Why are we happy to let a thoroughly ineffective 'leader' brazenly and repeatedly lie to us?
|Strange comments from Skuse on squad unity|
at 13:01 30 May 2018
In his interview on the front page, he’s reported as saying
“When Mick left, we had Bryan [Klug], Chris [Hogg] and Nashy [Gerard Nash] in charge and you could see a real togetherness there, the group really came together, it was really tight.”
Now I always thought we had a close knit group under Mick. But that seems to suggest there was significant room for improvement if the dynamic changed in just a few weeks.
Am I reading too much into it or were the players becoming as bored as us? Skuse certainly seems excited just by the prospect of change.

When does the season start? Have we signed anyone? Have we announced the friendlies?
|Good lordy: did Gove really say this?|

Sorry, another political thread, but does this numpty have no shame?
"Michael Gove, the environment secretary, said Brexit had helped to make the UK more immigration-friendly in the EU. He said a survey earlier this year showed that Britain was the most pro-immigration country in the EU. And he argued that the Brexit vote had contributed to this, saying people were more comfortable with immigration knowing they could now control it."
I missed the interview, but there's a quote here: https://www.theguardian.com/politics/blog/live/2018/apr/19/gove-says-brexit-has-
