Absolute madness. Probably the best bunch of players we've had in yonks, lead by a second rate manager. Again. The FA are a joke.

Most of the players were absolutely fucking shit at the Euros. Maybe that's an issue that needs addressing.

Nail. Head.

If these players are the best bunch we've had in years, and, on paper, I tended to agree before the tournament started, why were they all, to a man, abysmal?

The issue isn't necessarily just down to the manager as we've had world class managers (Sven, Fabio) in the past who have also failed to progress the national side. There are some deep seated issue in the English game and psyche of those players which could benefit from someone of the calibre of Big Sam as national boss.

It's not like the players arent playing amongst the best players in the world nor managed by the best managers in the world. Generally speaking the starting XI at the Euros were all first choice at their respective clubs. However, when they come together for England they simply do not respect each other. You do not get that in other major nations, nor even in some of the smaller nations.

The difference being, imo, is that our players need to be playing overseas, they need to be experiencing different cultures/leagues. They need a bigger picture view But, that is not going to happen if you're content to be paid ridiculous sums of money to often sit on the bench at a big club. 

How many top young English players are wanted by Real, Barca, Juve, etc? If someone comes knocking their current club waves another £ 50k in their direction and the players agent says "stay boy, you've got it made".

Lets stop inflating the ego's of the young such as Rashford, Alli, Sterling and let them develop before paying them the earth and for them to sit on their laurels. I hope a Real and Barca comes in for Dele Alli and he jumps at the chance because it would not only do him the world of good but also the national team.

Lets stop looking inwards ffs.

Someone just reset the Matrix.

£10k for a hole in one. Free round within 15ft.

Played Woodlands Manor in Sevenoaks yesterday and did alright. Gradually improving and need to play more. Had 13pts off the first 6 holes and was in bandit country for a time then faded badly.

Did you drive the tenth?

Bah! Beat me to it! smile

No. Didnt even get on with the free drop. About 6 of the 60 players on the day did. One to within 15ft and then sunk the birdie putt for a free round. I scored 24pts which included a load of free pts for staying up past 2am fof an 8am shotgun start.

It was my first game of the year. My 2nd and probably last is tomorrow. Clearly need to play more often.

The Belfry is a magnificent course.

I was told by him that they can have referendums at state level, but for federal level it was forbidden as it is enshrined in the constitution. Now this might only be in respect of leaving the EU, or more importantly, the use of a Referendum is limited. After looking at the page you posted, Wally, there might have been a transitional issue in the information given and to the extent of of use of referendums.

anyone notice how Angela Merkel is not so keen on playing hardball? i wonder why that is.

i wonder if that's because she realises what the Germans will say when their contributions go up to plug the gap we leave, as their cities become increasingly islamic?

if you read the german media and look at the readers comments, it makes you wonder about these things.

It's written into the german constitution that they cannot hold referendums.

He's not inept - you're falling foul of media influence there I reckon. 64% of labour supporters voted remain. Nicola Stugeon got 65% in Scotland and she's a hero apparently. Leave won because Cameron failed to rally Tory voters to his cause.

64% of the current paid up Labour supporters (the number is circa 450,000, so 270,000) of which probably 60% of those who joined in order to get him elected in the first place. 9.3m voted for Labour at the last election, so 2.9% of Labour supporters voted for him.

Corbyn has stated that he was 7.5 out of 10 for the EU. He then stated that two thirds of Labour voters voted to remain. He only needed to convince another 8% of his electorate to vote Remain. He then goes and blames the lose in the North on the 80s Tories. Despite the fact that the North, like Wales, has been a massive beneficiary of the EU in the 30 years past Thatchers heyday.

Labour's problem is that they cannot and will not forgive, or forget, the past. First it was Thatcher, now it is Blair. As Benson say's, they need to drop Corbyn and move to the centre ground, or a split Labour/Lib Dem/Conservative centrists party, if they want any chance to be in government ever again. Otherwise, they will always remain a party of protest going forward.
