...imagine Klinger if he was real having to explain spending the war in drag?

My favorite character actually even though he was in maybe a half dozen or so episodes. Unconfirmed rumor has it he resurfaced later on the SG forum as Cannon Balls' nemesis...

The Athletic have a piece on tactical fouls and it turns out Arsenal employ the most tactical fouls in the league. They've calculated it as a % of opposition turnovers that end in a foul. Clearly not an exact science and open to lots of interpretation but tactical fouling is something that has come in to the game for some of the most successful sides who dominate the ball and look to stop quick counters before they happen. Very annoying but very effective

I wouldn't mind seeing the break down by player.

I haven’t watched the video but, and if not watching it has sent my thoughts off in completely the wrong direction I apologise, the desire to not be ignored does strike me as likely to be very important to him.

That video is from movie Fatal Attraction.

No it wasn’t worth it. Not by a long way. The whole trip cost £1,143 and some pence that I wouldn’t have spent had I not gone. Total waste of money. It would have been worth it had we gone. But we didn’t just lose, we were humiliated in the second half.

Some people seemed upset by the way Koscielny left, with the shirts incident. After his performance in that final, I’m delighted he went. He was a fine player alongside Mertesacker and together they produced a good partnership. But that final showed Koscielny’s time was up. He made Giroud look like Ronaldo at his peak.

Thanks Bernard. The cost alone to get there would put one off. Overall, how was the city itself?

Hardly saw anything of it. Fans were taken direct from the airport to the ground and back again after the game. Presumably to avoid fans of each club having much opportunity to mix as we had our own coaches and Chelsea had there’s. For the official trips we went from Stanstead and I heard the Chelsea fans planes went from Luton. I don’t recall seeing a single Chelsea fan at Stanstead before or after the flights there and back.

I went on an official club trip. To see more of the place you probably had to go under your own steam.

One thing I noticed in the coach trip to the stadium before the game (after it was too dark to really see much) was that there must be wide differences in people’s accommodation. I saw some huge mansions, but also high rise blocks of flats that from my memory of the place made the Gorbals in Glasgow, when I was taken there in the sixties as a kid, look luxurious.

Warrior, why are your journalists in the states attacking our police? (in m most sarcastic, red state mid American accent)

Is anyone else getting seriously worried at the increasingly extreme, reactionary and downright bizarre actions of POTUS? Does anybody believe or trust him?

Is anybody getting seriously angry at the way Boris and his cronies are treating us like serfs with their lies, damn lies and statistics? Does anybody believe or trust them?

Evidently about 42% of US voters still believe and/or trust Trump. That is as terrifying and depressing as the man himself.

Trump's antics dominate the media so much that Boris and co hardly get a look in. The site of Boris face makes me feel nauseous so not seeing it (or hearing the accompanying plummy tones) is a (very small) silver lining to the slow-motion spiral to catastrophe that is Trump's presidency.

I can't see where this is going to end. I don't think Trump has any limits.

It wasn't even worth watching it for free on TV. The result wasn't unexpected.

Yes we were utterly dire. Sadly even the manner and margin of defeat wasn't unexpected. You can't even say that it was a new low for us.

Hi DHD.

Trump - Yes, extremely. Even by his own low standards, recent events have been frightening and his decision making suspect. there have been theories doing the rounds that he has got some form of Alzheimer's, and based on his actions and words that could be an valid interpretation. Did you hear his excuse to Fox News about why he hid in the bunker at the White House? Hopefully enough people in the administration will decide enough is enough, and either talk him into dialling back the rhetoric, or find him a way out of a position which has always been beyond his abilities.

I wonder if even kiwipete would defend him now?

Johnson - Yes, extremely, and no absolutely not. He is a buffoon who is way out of his depth, and has never excelled at anything he's done. Well, apart from getting women pregnant perhaps.

In both cases though, and I'm going to sound like a conspiracy theorist to some, I believe they are acting under the influence of other parties. In Trump's case, Putin has lots on him; lots being information which is compromising to say the least.
In Johnson's case, the malign influence of Tufton St is making him do and say things that, much as I dislike him, I don't think he genuinely believes. Again there's a Russian influence at play; the meeting at a mansion in Italy he attended with some Russian 'businessmen' who then donated a large amount to the Tory party, for example.

Whatever the truth, the sooner both are removed from office the better in my opinion. Otherwise the world will carry on heading towards hell in a very fast handcart.

Trump is clearly displaying fascistic traits now. A revolting narcissist who needs to be removed from office.

My thoughts on this government are well documented here. I urge you all to watch Dispatches on C4 from tonight. There should be criminal charges now against these incompetents.

Incidentally, Admins. Has my IP address been banned from here? I can only get into the forum if I switch off my WiFi on my phone and use 4G or if I’m elsewhere when connected to WiFi. Cannot get on at home via any browser when connected to the web. Hopefully that’s not the case but if it is, why?

Had the same problem recently with TalkTalk but it cleared itself up. It was a fault on their system.

Did you try rebooting your router. Everything off and disconnected. Switch back on after 2 mins at least and internet should improve. If you haven't done this you should regularly every few weeks.

Therein lies the problem. Devil if you do devil if you don't.

Trump is out of his depth ffs he's a relic which cannot control himself. There must be serious problems in the US if he's the best they can do......

Boris can do nothing right for 48% of the population. Whatever he does he's damned. I'd like to see the keyboard warriors sort out the crap he has to sort out.

Johnson caused most of the 'crap' in the first place - it's of his own making. His ineptitude, arrogance, bluster and cowardice in not sacking Cummings will define him.

Those who are being charitable to Boris excuse his recent performances by saying he isn’t well.

More objectively, it’s becoming clear that he just doesn’t have the smarts to do the job he’s always craved and I think he’s beginning to realise just how out of his depth he is. It wasn’t like this in your dreams, was it Boris? He is intellectually challenged but to be fair to him he’s pretty typical of privileged upper class males in Britain – educated to *%^@ but essentially a bit dim. He’s also lazy; he doesn’t read his briefs so he is particularly poor at responding to questions. He’s easily caught out, as has been shown time and again in recent pressers and at PMQs. When cornered, he thinks he can blag it with a few Latin phrases and a hefty dose of harrumphing, flag-waving and bluster. Taken with his well-documented traits and track record of amorality and lying, his performances in recent encounters can reasonably be summed up as execrable and downright embarrassing. As a result, both his credibility and his popularity are plummeting.

A resounding yes and no, respectively. Since he was elected, I've been thinking that I've never seen a democratically elected president talk and behave like a dictator as often as Trump. Luckily, American democracy actually is robust enough to keep his worst instincts in check normally, but what we're seeing right now is fascism in action right in front of our eyes.

Forget about the looting, forget about the vandalism, those are just red herrings being used as an excuse to carry out the most vicious acts of police brutality I've witnessed in a long time. In the last week I've seen easily 50 different incidents that would've normally gone viral and resulted in police officers being fired or even prosecuted, but since so much is happening at the same time nothing seems to be investigated. A kid standing with nobody near him being shot in the head with a bean bag, an old man with walking sticks being shoved to the ground by police officers in riot gear because he didn't move away fast enough, mounted police swarming and using tear gas on peaceful protestors sitting on the ground and playing guitar.

They're targeting peaceful protestors, journalists, basically anyone they feel like beating up, to assert their power and knowing nothing will be done about it. The thing that sums it all up was when Trump had them tear gas a group of people - including a priest - outside a church for a photo op. The police literally tear gassed a priest away from his own church, so Trump could have his photo taken in front of it.

Anyone defending him at this point is actively defending fascism, there's no grey area.

Hope everyone is doing well, by the way. Would gladly have Emery back as a coach if we could erase the last four months or so.

I would say the same about any elected administration. They need to be supported and called out for factual errors not political errors. Do you seriously believe Starmer would do a better job?

Give me Eddie any day of the week. One of our own, one we can can believe in. May not be a world beater but someone we can connect with.
