Now Trump and the NRA are trying to pass a law allowing people to carry conceal weapon across state borders. The insanity continues.
The public display or even concealment in public is completely nuts.
There was a recent shooting at a store when the cops came the suspect as well as others had their guns out and the cops had no idea who were the 'good guys' and who were the 'bad guys'.
But as the adage goes, you get the government you deserve. I'm also reminded about that other adage about when good men do nothing.
Lastly, with Trump looking to start a war where ever he can get it to distract us, will the UK follow him into the abyss?

Us not being in the competition I've not seen one whole match this season in the CL. Anyone else reduce their CL viewing either?
My only interest in the competition is hoping all the English sides do badly..lol. .

I want all the sides in the CL to do bad. It's no fun at all.

Really enjoy not being in the CL - it's a rubbish competition run almost solely for TV. Couldn't give a flying *%^@ about it.

How's the Sibelius, Hoy, did she have her wrist warmers on?

Those midterm can't come soon enough. Either that or he'll run out of insanely stupid things to do. Jerusalem? He's reckless to the point of insanity.

AG's favourite invincibles team are losing 2-0 to Shaktar Donetsk.

Maybe that'll shut him up.

Ok mate I won't respond further as your a good laugh but my point is that you don't need to be a financial whizz to know what's happening with property prices therefore estate agents aren't major value contributors. buy land .. you'll thank me

I am not sure we should make light of the casino business.

Apparently the master plan for end of season is take all the money we get from Alexis, Özil, Walcott and Wilshire and place it on the number 7. If it comes home we get to buy a moderately okay footballer but if it doesn't we will look for a 16yo from some obscure country to replace the 4 of them.

Tonights match will test my interest in the competition and the side in general tonight. I think I may end up watching it but its not a foregone conclusion.

Good to have a nice big win after the tough loss. Also, build up a little confidence and get some minutes for the likes of Walcott and Wilshere and others.
The pundit I was listening to asked the other if he thinks we are the favorites for the competition and he said not when the bigger clubs for the CL come in. I think we can get to the semis if we take it serious. Not sure how serious Wenger will take it later on. Its a back door into the CL so I would think he'd take it seriously especially if our position in the EPL table is shaky.

Fair point TG ; but sometimes you wonder whether the bubble will burst , house prices in Auckland going off the scale a basic not too flash weather board house selling for over a $1 ,000, 000 .

Good win against very ordinary opposition . Walcott worked hard but I kept flicking over to watch Ronnie O Sullivan get the biggest scare of his life against a really nice young Thai kid .

Agree with Daz hard to get enthused about European football .
Always get the feeling it is all about money , the Champions League should be just that , the Champion of each country .

Here is a story about a UK Wengerinner who usually buries his head in the sand.

Tough game coming up. This same fixture pretty much killed us last season. We are firmly in the top 4 race. Would love to see Tottenham as the odd man out. Liverpool playing well, Man Utd as well as City. Chelsea up and down. Its an interesting season so far from a neutral's viewpoint. Tense for supporters of the top 6 sides save City.

To be fair, he makes a good anaesthetic.

When I first got into football, the Manchester derby (the years that City were actually in the league...lol) didn't seem to be that big of a derby as it will be this weekend. The NLD is watched nationally with interest. Man Utd v. Liverpool being the biggest match possibly historically. The Liverpool derby seemed bigger than the Manchester derby when I started watching football late '90s.
I'd even say the northeast derby between Newcastle and Sunderland seemed bigger. It's huge now because of their relative sides and being number 1 and 2 in the table but historically?

Would his blocking actually work ...... I've got Yankey Doodle dandy on ignore so don't see his waffle but then I do see a lot of his posts because you bubblechris , Bromley , Top Gun , Abu , Goonie who I haven't got on ignore answer him

......but seeing as you answer one of his [ American's ] posts and presumably he hasn't got himself on ignore ..... he would see them .

Where's Warrior when you need him .... am I right in this supposition Big Guy

Southampton - an easy 3 points this season. 4-0 to us.

In the Manchester derby the FA know a City win may kill any excitement in the EPL so I expect a few controversial decisions to get Utd over the line or get at least a draw.

It was a massive contest in the 60s and 70s. Both sides were crammed with great British footballers who served up classic attacking games. For my money only Aguero and Ibrahimovic stand comparison with the men from that time.

Can I hear the sound of a stick being sharpened with which to beat the manager yet again? Who ever beats Southampton 4-0 at their place? Last time we did it George Graham was boss.

I wasn't around to watch those sides, but I would suggest that DeBruyne, Silva and DeGea would be right up there. Not at the Best and Charlton level but seriously talented players nonetheless.

Hello omoh, they were both champions late '60s back to back if my football history is kind to me, so I assume as much.
I remember when they had Goater I think over well over a dozen years and tried punching above their weight. I can imagine it was a bigger match in the era you mentioned.
