The Daily Cut and Thrust / Re: What's annoying me today
Not going to happen. We are doing nothing that suggests we have any interest or expertise moving towards that. We are just going down the sh!t or bust buy players simplistic route.

Apparently the deluded idiot is still working on trying to get some form of "her deal" through. We really are f*cked, could we have made a worse job of this?

It's not the first time I've seen them.  They play the right way.  Of course they are not perfect, of course they have bad days....but they are miles ahead of us.

Which isn't to say that we can't get ahead of them.  It's just not where I'd put my money right now.

The white haired goalkeeping coach at twelve seconds in is Seamus. He taught me how he does scouting reports (or did), and I did some computing stuff for him. Used to be friends with him when he was a publican in Wollaton/Bramcote (and for a while when he moved to the festival..but lost touch when he ended up at the pub now called "the nuthall" although I don't think it used to be called that), the likes of Allardyce and Robbo often popped in for drinks.

It does look like a pretty fully constituted team O'Neil. Plus side, that's the first team staff sorted.  Minus, it's clearly not what I would consider a club structure.

Constantly describing it as "brexit" is intentional ambiguity. Having a Norway style deal, or a cake and eat it type deal, have all been decided as brexit.  So as long as brexit is not actually written down and defined it can retain a majority of people 'who just want to get out'.

Of course once it is defined, and the consequences of that become clear, it will lose the support of a substantial number of that constituency (c.f. "May's deal", where almost nobody even agrees that the terms under which we are agreeing settlement, never mind negotiating a relationship, whatever that might be). There is no majority for a specific form of brexit.  Never was.  That's exactly why those wanting to brexsh!t are absolutely prepared to do anything to avoid proper scrutiny and a genuine vehicle to reflect the wishes of 'the people' as a whole.

It's a hijack of democracy, to deregulate and avoid scrutiny, to be a haven for asset stripping and off-the-grid wealth. Anyone who really was proud of their country would be genuinely appalled at the implications of that.
