Denly opening, Roy batting at four
at 12:32 2 Sep 2019

More muddled thinking in my opinion. Really difficult to see how Roy is selected ahead of Pope in the middle order now. Read on a cricinfo article (I think) recently that Surrey wouldn't dream of picking Roy ahead of Pope for red ball cricket.

Laptops
at 14:57 26 Jul 2019

bit of advice - a while ago there was a thread on here with someone asking for advice on laptops and someone posted a link to a 'build your own laptop' (not literally) site, where you could choose all the specs. Can't remember who it was and can't find the thread - if you are still out there could you repost a link?

And generally are there any advantages of doing this over a more traditional branded laptop (lenovo/Asus etc)?

"How the Left Thrives on Hate and Wants to Silence us"

Is Donald Trump Junior's new book title. Would recommend that some of the snowflakey lefty triggered snowflakes on here have a read of it, if you don't get the pages too wet with your melting lefty snow.

That cabinet isnt going to govern for long
at 20:18 24 Jul 2019

Will lose a no confidence vote in September, replaced with a centrist cross-party government of national unity led by Starmer etc. who will facilitate a second referendum. Can't really see any other outcome now, given Boris and the EU aren't going back down from their respective positions, and there have got to be enough tories would happily bring that lot down to stop no deal. If Corbyn was a credible leader they would think twice about it, but the threat of a Corbyn government is too small to stop them.

Time is surely running out for Brett McGavin to break into the first team, given his age?

Kieran Tierney
at 07:41 23 Jun 2019

Pat Bonner getting a bit uppity about a £15 million offer from Arsenal for the Celtic left-back:

"If Kieran was playing in England, he'd probably be worth about £50 million",

"Whether Arsenal is a big enough club for Kieran, that's the question".

What does Boris do now?
at 07:21 14 Jun 2019

If he attends the TV debates there's a pretty high risk that Gove dismantles him - the other candidates left are also pretty competent speakers too, so he could end up looking pretty awful. But if he doesn't attend it will show him up for cowardice, and look very poor too.

It's pretty mind-boggling the amount of MPs willing to support him without his competence or ability being tested at all so far.

The Gabrielle Grunewald story is quite something
at 18:13 12 Jun 2019

American middle-distance runner diagnosed with a rare, aggressive form of cancer in 2009 with a low survival rate beyond 5 years. Had surgeries and underwent chemotherapy while continuing to race, and was 2014 national champion in the 1500m. In 2016 had more surgery to remove part of her liver and still continued racing afterwards. She passed away in the last day or so aged 32.

Extraordinary situation

This story is starting to break - significant numbers of EU citizens are being told they are unable to vote in the European elections in the UK because of administrative errors. Some reporting that they have been told at polling stations to 'vote in their own country'.

Board mathematicians, advanced GCSE question
at 10:26 8 May 2019

Should the 11,748 have clubbed together to buy the remaining 252 season tickets, thus triggering the 10% reduction across all season tickets, if those 252 remaining tickets were then loaned out at £10 per game to casual fans?

What's really the point
at 20:57 10 Apr 2019

In playing the likes of Quaner and Bree now - given that we're probably going to lose most of our games anyway, and finish bottom by some distance whatever we do?

There's surely a chance (admittedly slim) that Jackson scores a couple of half decent goals, or Emmanuel puts in a couple of confidence boosting displays, and this gives them boosted confidence for next season.

Genuine question re European elections
at 21:35 9 Apr 2019

Why's the Tory party getting so worked up about this? Can't they just ignore them: not campaign, not vote, not stand candidates? Sure this would send lots of Brexit Party mini-Francoises to Europe, but isn't that their problem, and it's only for a few months, anyway? And what kind of person would stand in these elections - you'd have to be pretty desperate for a whiff of importance!

Fantasy County Championship Cricket

I entered a team in this last year:
https://cricketxi.com/

It's a brilliant set-up, the rules are excellent and it's free.

I was top of my league until mid-August when I went on a long holiday without internet access and after that I couldn't bear to look at it again knowing I'd blown it.

If anyone likes the look of it you could set up a TWTD mini-league, limited to 16 teams last year tho.

the indicative votes set up was stupid
at 21:51 27 Mar 2019

It should have just been a ranking of preferences. Using the methods they designed if you assumed each MP has two tolerable options, there would be 3 times as many no votes as yes votes across the options. This makes it very unlikely anything would pass.
