I'm pretty sure there are specific coronavirus rules which allow you to cancel free of charge any time - I've certainly seen it on the websites of different airlines, but don't know whether it's their own policy or a general one (although can't see why they'd volunteer it)

Yeah but you don't need to quarantine people who have tested negative. That's the point of the tests

Get Warnock in now!
at 17:10 7 Mar 2020

I'd say get him in now so he can work with and get to know the players, then put him as director of football next season where he can do a proper gutting of the squad, and promote Nash to head coach with Warnock mentoring.

Exactly. But the media are only telling us about the racists they want us to punch (and don't admit that they themselves are also racist)

You're right, it's not complicated.

Labour has an issue with antisemitism.

Conservatives have an issue with antisemitism and islamophobia.

The media choose to report only the issue Labour has with antisemitism, therefore showing a bias when it comes to accurately portraying political organisations to the public (and affecting things like, I don't know, general elections).

You have an issue with facts and accuracy. You once posted ten 'examples' of antisemitism plus the official definition of antisemitism, and failed to realise that 9 out of 10 of your examples didn't qualify as antisemitic by the very definition you posted.

It's similar to why an official report by the House of Commons Home Affairs Committee is far more legitimate and independent than an unofficial report by a group called "Campaign Against Antisemitism".

Two words: Technical and Sh!t-ref
at 16:08 7 Mar 2020

It's not hard to understand. (For averagely-clever people)

For a manager, technical is having a clear tactical system, playing to players' strengths and working out specific plays and patterns to outwit an opponent. Allardyce was most certainly a technical manager. Taylor was not so much, as he didn't go forensically into the percentage football (like Klopp does for example with his throw-in coach).

For a player, technical is about having the footballing technique to execute any of a manager's systems, e.g. tiki taka, switching play quickly, gegenpress. Natural attributes like pace and power only work for some systems, whereas you are more able to learn and improve first touch and passing abilities, aka technique.

As usual you're living in a fantasy world.

Here is an actual quote from the report, which I have quoted many times on here, but as you are incapable of responding to real facts, you ignore it:

"Despite significant press and public attention on the Labour Party, and a number of
revelations regarding inappropriate social media content, there exists no reliable, empirical
evidence to support the notion that there is a higher prevalence of antisemitic attitudes
within the Labour Party than any other political party"

https://publications.parliament.uk/pa/cm201617/cmselect/cmhaff/136/136.pdf

Page 46, point 120

I'm not defending antisemitism and have never defended antisemitism. I defend fairness and facts and intellectual reason - qualities you so clearly lack to the point that I'm regularly surprised how often you publicly display such deficiencies by posting on here. But I suppose the government here and in the US has galvanized people like you with such malformed views.

Enjoy the game. Maybe during it, you can come up with some anti-semitic cases from the Tory party to balance out your flagrant bias.

The OP is about the unbalanced way the media report racism in political parties.

The official report into antisemitism in the Labour party found no more cases there than in the Conservative party nor in wider society. I've written this point so many times and you've ignored it, if you cared about racism you would have posted and highlighted an equal amount of antisemitic cases from the Conservative party as from the Labour party, but you haven't. This implies you are just as guilty of using antisemitism to weaponise the fight against Corbyn as the mainstream media is.

There was an official report that said that there were no more antisemites in the Labour party than the Conservative party. Sounds like there's a hell of a lot fewer islamophobes

It's a general comment about how the "reporters" I've mentioned pseudointellectualize football. I'm not going to read this article but I doubt it's just "reporting". Even the headline is incredibly pretentious.

I’ll tell you what

Professional sports people are like machines, they spend their lives following the exact regimes needed to make it to the top, as advised by their litany of coaches. In general they have very little independent thought. They are intensely competitive and will do anything to win, which means running their guts out.

I have no issue with our players. There are players worse than them who are in far more successful teams. The system is the only problem and how to implement it. With a clueless owner and yet another dinosaur manager its proving to be tricky.

Every appointment he's made (except for Hurst) has been about one man having a track record - i.e. got promotion before from the league we're currently in.

When's he going to realise that it's not about one man, it's about the entire club setting the right standards. If you pick a style for your club, just like Sheff U, Huddersfield, Scum, Bournemouth, Swansea all did, and all got good success (yes I know some aren't doing well now, but I'm talking about the fact they all rose from League One to the Prem), then it's not as important who you get in to manage the team, as all the players and infrastructure that suit your style are already there.
