Anyone fancy seeing LCD Soundsystem at the Brixton Academy on 29/06?
at 15:22 17 Jun 2022

It's sold out, but I have 2 tickets to sell. Cost me £58 each from AXS - going for upwards of £90 each on re-sale sites, but happy to sell to a fellow TWTD member for £55 each (I want to sell them together if I can). PM if interested. Can do a bank transfer then I'll send them Recorded Delivery. Cheers.

New managers have very similar phrases. What others are there?
at 13:56 14 Jun 2022

Vincent Kompany on joining Burnley "I’ve been impressed by the board’s vision for the club which aligns with my own and I look forward to playing my part as we enter an important season." Very, very similar to comments from KM. Any others? I've always found that when a manager is in a bad spot and doesn't really have any answers, they revert to "we've just got to work really, really hard on the training pitch".

This will steal some of the Brexiteers thunder
at 14:21 5 May 2022

The link below may be behind a paywall, but it is basically saying that Russia’s war with Ukraine has given a group of EU countries fresh incentives to speed up work on free-trade agreements and that at least nine nations including Germany and Spain are planning to send a letter to the EU seeking to speed up delayed talks e.g faster negotiations with New Zealand, Australia, India and Indonesia, while speeding the implementation of existing accords agreed with Chile, Mexico and the Mercosur bloc of countries, which include Argentina, Brazil, Uruguay and Paraguay. The letter also says that the current process to negotiate, sign and implement trade deals is too long.
This would appear to potentially pull the rug from Brexiteers claimed benefit that we can negotiate trade deals more quickly outside of the EU, not that the UK has made any ground breaking deals so far.

Seeing the thread about players we may let go, I wonder how many of our stars
at 12:04 25 Mar 2022

may get poached (if any) over the summer. An offer too good to turn down for Walton? Morsy wanting to get back to the Championship? Burns good form earning him a decent contract a league up? The Fridge going to a "bigger" club? Woolfy being snapped up as "one for the future" by someone? Aluko offered one last big(ger) contract? Santi with a good offer from abroad? Ed Sheeran not getting a squad number? Ok, not the last one, but you get my gist.

What could possibly go wrong when we have people with this level of
at 17:11 10 Feb 2022

intelligence running the country....from the Beeb, reporting on Truss and her grasp of the detail:
Sergei Lavrov has a reputation for biting sarcasm - and it has emerged the veteran Russian foreign minister tripped up his UK counterpart Liz Truss with a question when they met behind closed doors today.

Truss was pressing for Russia to pull its troops back from Ukraine's borders and Lavrov was arguing that they were on their own national territory, Russia's Kommersant newspaper reports.

"You do recognise Russia's sovereignty over the Rostov and Voronezh regions?" Lavrov asked, referring to two Russian regions.

After a brief pause, the paper says, Truss replied: "Great Britain will never recognise Russia's sovereignty over those regions."

"Great Britain's Ambassador to the RF [Russian Federation], Deborah Bronnert, had to step in, delicately explaining to Ms Truss that the two regions [Rostov and Voronezh] are indeed Russian," Kommersant writes.

I do believe that Johnson is genuinely, in his soul, to his very core, sorry
at 18:41 31 Jan 2022

Sorry that he got caught. But that will be it. His apology is, like much of what comes out of that man’s mouth, a lie. Johnson has only ever looked after one person; Johnson. His “apology” was designed to help: it was designed to help Johnson. I despair.

Does anyone know why with Morsy's incident
at 17:41 25 Jan 2022

it initially looked as though we could appeal the original charge, then suddenly it's 4 game with no appeal? What changed? Is it because the FA saw it and just viewed it as a black and white violent conduct i.e. it's completely obvious what he did, so no grounds for appeal? Seems odd?

Is Martyn Pert actually Marcus Evans, after a little bit of work?
at 18:01 16 Dec 2021

They look alike. And it unnerves me. Oh god, just realised that if you take the words Marcus Evans, take away some letters, add some more in and swap them around a bit, you get Martyn Pert! Busted! Evans out!

One thing is clear from all the speculation so far, and you can quote me on this
at 14:29 15 Dec 2021

Town are definitely going down the manager or coach route with the next appointment, likely someone with experience in football, almost certainly human, with little doubt that they are currently in or out of work. I have read many hours of posts on here, so no smart @rse comments about me jumping to conclusions. I have taken key points from all relevant emails and placed them in a spreadsheet, with comments graded, weighted and categorised, and my above comments appear conclusive. You heard it here first, so put your money on before the odds shorten.
