    Away Match Day Thread +++ 25/08/2020 Friendly Crystal Palace v OUFC +++

    Just talking to a Newcastle friend (on a work call) and I mentioned their alleged interest in Dickie. He asked whether he ever scores goals "cos that's where most of our goals come from". My answer? "He rises like a salmon at the far post and then heads it over the bar," I said...

    National News Boris Johnson - PM

    Is that actually true though? Would the EU stop us choosing a better option, and if so how? (Please provide a link).

    National News Boris Johnson - PM

    Imagine being so invested in a political party that you have to defend an over-privileged serial liar every time he tells a new lie. Have some dignity.

    City fans very complimentary in my northwestern pub. Much much better than last year.

    I have no idea what point you're trying to make now. Funny, I find your views on the football perceptive, but when it comes to politics...

    International News Climate Change

    A "rambling tangent" in which I kept exclusively to (some of) the arguments you made? Show me where I mentioned Greta Thunberg, or flights, or how many kids people have...

    International News Climate Change

    You really need to work on your critical thinking. Firstly, no, a single kid in the West can't stop China from polluting the oceans. But does that mean they should shut up and say nothing? Secondly, the idea that because China is the worst offender, that lets the UK off the hook, is just...

    Many of those photos turn out to be hoaxes. For example, here and here. Climate change deniers fight dirty.

    National News Brexit - the Deal or No Deal poll

    We had a pretty sweet deal anyway, but the idea that "Cameron came home empty-handed" is - like so many Brexiter articles of faith - a highly contentious claim (to put it politely). He got: An exemption from "ever-closer union" A compromise on benefits for EU workers An opt-out from Euro...

    National News Brexit - the Deal or No Deal poll

    £156m. A lot of money to you or me, but neither here nor there in government terms. Brexit is costing us nearly four times that every week. So now you Brexiters are finding somewhere to pin the blame as a "successful Brexit" is shown up as the naive fantasy it always was. You knew the players...

    National News Brexit - the Deal or No Deal poll

    To be fair - and I despise Johnson as much as the next right-thinking human being - I suspect this is just a cock-up by some flunky. Conservative Central Office email round a stock tweet to Tory MPs asking them to encourage their vote out, Boris's aide (or perhaps even the man himself) tweets it...

    OUFC Transfer Deadline Day Thread - Jan 2019

    Right, I'm not going to carry on this pointless conversation, but WTF are you talking about? He scored a goal for the Liverpool first team, in the third round of the FA Cup. OK, it's not a Premiership game, but how the hell is that the "Youth FA Cup"? Personally I'll wait to see him play before...

    OUFC Transfer Deadline Day Thread - Jan 2019

    Yep, 1 in the League, 2 in the FA Cup, 1 in "other" (which is the Checkatrade goal), which is exactly what I said. Nothing about "youth goals", nothing about just one FA Cup goal, which is what you claimed. Give it up, mate.

    OUFC Transfer Deadline Day Thread - Jan 2019

    Oh come off it Bazzer, a player's record really isn't hard to check: 1 league goal (for Sunderland v Peterborough, 2018) 2 FA Cup goals (for Liverpool v Exeter 2016 and for Watford v Burton 2017) 1 Checkatrade goal (for Sunderland v Notts County, 2018) Like I said, nothing to write home about...

    OUFC Transfer Deadline Day Thread - Jan 2019

    I thought you weren't going to say anything if you had nothing positive to say... But be that as it may, Sinclair's record is 4 in 42, not 1 in 30 (the Wikipedia page wasn't updated until just now and the box at the top only shows league apps and goals: he's scored a couple of FA Cup goals for...

    Wow. Watching on iFollow and I'm amazed that's been given. Fully expecting the ref to blow up for a foul on the keeper.
