Rumoured to be “saving” Liam Gallagher’s Pretty Green now. Quality has been reducing over the last few years but it’s still better than the tat he’d put out.

Mojo you keep saying Labour have been absolute s***, why do you think that?

They can't even agree on their position to offer an alternative?

Thought it was agreed at the party conference and that's the process they are following?

That's not to mention the fact they have no power to implement it.

on a very broad level they've enabled the continued weaponisation of eu migration and thus immigration in general at the exact time they should have been standing up and fighting against that and for some kind of deal with the EU that doesn't end free movement, someone went and checked the last time corbyn mentioned immigration in a speech and it was something like 2 years ago

they've been running scared since 2016 basically

Labour are a bit stuck here as they need to play the opposition but also know they need to win votes from people who want a tightening of immigration and movement of people...As well as trying to satisfy people who want to retain these benefits.

i'm not suggesting it's easy by any means but since 2016 they've done whatever has stopped them being crushed in the elections and you have to say that paid off in the 2017 GE, but at what price?

look at them now, 2-3 years ago corbyn was publicly blaming business for wage compression, employing EU migrants to drive down wages and whatever else, does he even mention it anymore? do any of them?  now they're pushing a plan for something that will mean the retention of FoM, they know it but are not simultaneously pushing the positives of migration so how's that gonna go if they get what they want?  not well i'd imagine

little things as well, starmer will be on TV at any given point saying something and gardiner will be on later completely contradicting him

brexit has broken the lot of them

Triple Frontier. Decent enough start, strong middle, but thought it really faded last 45 mins - just didn't do it for me.

Overall certainly watchable.

His first goal was the most Raheem Sterling thing ever, an open goal from a decent passing move. How the hell he's always there is beyond me, his positioning / movement really is second to none. Loved the composure for the little swivel goal as well.

Man, this England team might not have the names and individual talent that previous England teams have had in certain key positions, but as a cohesive team this one's probably already my favourite, without really having any of my favourite England players of all time in it. I really enjoy watching them having fun and getting results with it, feels weird seeing a class young team coming through and it being us rather than France, Spain, Germany, or Belgium.

Said pretty much this to my wife. She asked who Chilwell was and it triggered me into explaining why this team is better than the Gerrard, Lampard, Terry, Ferdinand etc team.

Got some examples of these bet types? I had a look at the inplay on some games yesterday and none of the 1.08-1.12 ones even looked worth it and/or certain. Probably dunno what I'm looking for tbf

I was looking at draws 1.08 to 1.15 with about 5 mins plus stoppage time, it's risky as one bet f***s it all up but its paid for a few "normal" accumulators today for me.

It was reported when the allegations were made that he said something along the lines of 'hurry up, your lot should be good at this' when at a climbing frame at Go Ape. Apparently he said he meant sportsmen rather than stereotyping anyones race. Not sure if the FA charge relates to the same thing
