RE: [VIDEO] Arsenal: A new beginning for the 2018/19 season

Seen the first half, in which we seemed to be playing Huddersfoul with a referee who was out of his depth.
The MOTD higlights  described that as 'like a basketball press' go figure.
They preferred to major on three bookings for us for simulation, only one of which I'd allow and I'd even argue that.
Xhaka had his leg taken across like you used to at school, tap the left behind the right so you you trip yourself.
Mustafi laid it on a bit but 'I've seen them given' that's the one I'd swallow.
Guendouzi got a shove in the back which even MOTD seemed blind to.

***k it. 
One nil, three points.
A weeks rest till Southampton as I'm sure it will be the kids and the tea lady playing Carrier bag.

EDIT: I still want Lacazette's disallowed goal explained as it was from a back pass while the player clearly had it under control.

Yes we should but if you'd offered us 4 points from the Sp*rs and Utd games I think we'd have taken it.
I'm not so sure I wouldn't give them the win if we could have Holding back uninjured though. Early info suggests that could be his season over. Still at least it happened before January.

Considering he was bought by Moyes, Fellani is such a Moaniho player.

Hopefully just going through the process and the judge either throws it out or a not guilty.

The fact that I know precisely how you feel is no comfort at all.
That's a bitch of a way to lose a match.

Haven't seen any highlights yet but reports say you were well worth the draw.

RE: [VIDEO] Arsenal: A new beginning for the 2018/19 season




We had a team of players there with comparatively few appearances in a north London derby but to a man, from the manager down, they get it.

Every single one of them wanted it more than them lot. well in front on every stat and the icing on the cake, he's been there for 5 minutes, how much did that goal mean to Torriera.

It would have been so nice to make it 5. You know, just for the set.
EDIT: Ian liked it as well

RE: PM approves of police tactic of ramming moped-riding criminals off their bikes

Don't know how long the 'don't pursue' was the case as about 4 years back I witnessed a patrol car chase a guy on a push bike and run him into a corrugated iron fence.

Usually nicked and used straight away so the loss may not have been reported.
Insurers being what they are they may argue recovery was possible fully intact until it was deliberately wrecked by the police.

Still want an answer to the question who's liable for the damage to the, presumably stolen, moped.
The owner. Stolen but deliberately damaged by police.
The police. Damaged in pursuance of a criminal.
Or just tough, sh*t happens.

RE: [VIDEO] The Trump Presidency

Quote:
The larger the mob, the harder the test. In small areas, before small electorates, a first-rate man occasionally fights his way through, carrying even the mob with him by force of his personality. But when the field is nationwide, and the fight must be waged chiefly at second and third hand, and the force of personality cannot so readily make itself felt, then all the odds are on the man who is, intrinsically, the most devious and mediocre — the man who can most easily adeptly disperse the notion that his mind is a virtual vacuum.

The Presidency tends, year by year, to go to such men. As democracy is perfected, the office represents, more and more closely, the inner soul of the people. We move toward a lofty ideal. On some great and glorious day the plain folks of the land will reach their heart’s desire at last, and the White House will be adorned by a downright moron.

RE: [VIDEO] Brexit

In which world does the PM appealing to the public with 'A letter to the nation' preclude allowing that same nation a vote on a supposed deal.
Which is not actually a deal but a basis on which to negotiate a deal which will probably drag on for the next 10 years.

RE: [VIDEO] The Lion King

Honestly not sure.
I have seen the original, looooads of times. The kids loved it and used to watch it all the time. The charm though was in the fact it was essentially a cartoon and I'm not sure it'll work as damn near live/CGI mixed.
I haven't seen Jungle book or anything else they've done this with so I've nothing to judge it against.

James Earl Jones should be narrating stuff every waking hour cos we're really going to miss him when he goes.

Episode 5.

This could very easily go in the Trump thread as well.

Carole Cadwallada and Peter Jukes have launched a podcast 'Dial M for Mueller'

or why Britain needs a Mueller enquiry and why the ***k isn't it getting one.

RE: Advice - new laptop / notebook or whatever they atre callled nowadays!

My daughter bought a refurbished Lenovo Thinkpad about 4 months back for £170.00.
Almost the exact job description you list with travel blogging and heavy Instagram usage thrown in.
I appreciate you'll probably want new for a pressie but worth a look.

Not sure where you are in the country but I'm sure they'll mail order.
