|Scottish Independence and Brexit|
at 16:40 23 Mar 2019
I am totally opposed to the break up of the Union as I’ve made clear on the odd occasion. I do have worries though as to what the best ‘strategy’ would be to minimise an indyref2 success in Scotland.
If we are to remain in the EU which is my preferred option, it is likely to be achieved by a second referendum. This will surely set a precedent to the SNP that what’s good for the goose...
If we leave, I’ve heard that an indyref2 would be top of the SNP’s agenda with a possible good chance of success.
This leaves me to believe that the only option to deter the SNP would be a revocation of A50.
Of course, they could hold a referendum whatever the outcome of Brexit and we could discuss and surely disagree amongst ourselves as to the likely outcome. I think it would be too close to call but leaving the EU would be the worst possible scenario.
Scotland could then, depending on their referendum result, apply to join the EU. I heard a SNP member in the week disputing the fact that they would have to join the Euro due to the fact(?) that they would have to join the ERM (???) first before the Euro. Apparently this is not mandatory. This may of course be standard SNP bluff.
Anyone got any views?

Some head scratching reffing going on in this game. However, in favour of The Championship side this time😡
|Scotland v Wales|
at 12:26 9 Mar 2019
Ok, no football to concern ourselves with this afternoon so full concentration on the rugby for me.
Under ‘normal’ circumstances I’d say Wales by 10 but I can’t help thinking that this WRU / Regions debacle is going to play a part.
Scotland at home can be a different proposition as we know so taking nothing for granted here.
Lucky or unlucky 13th!?

Yet another victim this afternoon. Totally out of hand.
There’s a theory that exclusions from school are responsible for this! When the culprits are caught and it is found to be that they are pupils who have been excluded then make the point, not before. It may well be the case but let’s have proof. And if it is the case, how are schools and the teachers supposed to deal with these feral youths?
Also, would more police on the streets be a suitable deterrent. We need more for sure but would it decrease or eradicate this problem?
at 16:15 24 Feb 2019
(And some non-sporting ones)
Noticed a few lookalikes over the years. Anymore?
Paul James (ex Ospreys) and Phil Dowd (PL ref)
Mike Dean (PL ref) and Mr Burns (The Simpson’s)
Puyol and David Luiz
Nico Rosberg and Leonardo Di Caprio
Jo Coburn (Daily Politics host) and Lois Griffin (Family Guy)
Peter O‘Mahony (Ireland rugby) and Rhod Gilbert
Gareth Anscombe and Kryten (Red Dwarf)
Can’t do photos unfortunately.
|Wales v England Rugger|
at 20:33 17 Feb 2019
Well chaps, does anyone give Wales a chance next week against the men in white?
Personally, I see a comfortable win for England. I watched the raise of hands on Scrum V tonight and couldn’t believe how many thought Wales would win.
So, head not heart, Wales or England.
Non rugger fans need not contribute 👍
|Quiz On BBC Sport Website|

It asks what teams certain celebrities follow. Oprah Winfrey is on there!
However, Michael Sheen is on there and he supports Newport. Any idea why when he’s a PT lad?

Anyone on here have any advice on how to sell a car online. What is the best site?
Or are there better ways?
Thanks in advance.

Despite the title of the thread, it's about us.
I hope that the players / management sit down and watch games like this one. They make it look simple. Of course, they have world class players and a charismatic coach but there's lots they can learn by just watching.
I'm thinking of Dan James in particular. That guy has buckets of talent but he can't finish for his like. He should look at players like the one who scored the second and try and emulate that.
Again, there's a huge gulf in class. I'm not comparing us to Liverpool, obviously. I may have mentioned this before, but I used to play a lot of squash before injuries laid me up. I was fortunate to be able to watch Adrian Davies, a top 5 player in the world practice with an Australian top three player at my club. I saw what they could do and how they did it and just watching them ended up improving my game. I never made it into the top 5 however!!

At least 222 dead and will rise apparently.
Same time of year as the last one 14 years ago.
|Soton v Arsenal|
at 15:34 16 Dec 2018
Good win for Soton today. I can't see them being in the mix at the end of the season.
For me, the bottom three will be Fulham, Burnley and Huddersfield. Cardiff will do enough at home I reckon to be safe.
I think maybe this year though, we'll see the lowest ever survival points tally.

Celebrating a 4-1 defeat for 'them'.
'Matthew' (I think he was called) tweeted that only BBCardiff could do that and called them all deluded.
at 19:26 13 May 2018
Apologies if already mentioned but I can't trawl through every post.
He was asked on R5L whether he was sorry to see Swans go down. It was an emphatic no, the reason being that every time he tweets something about Swansea the fans post pictures if him getting "smashed by Pintado"
|A Very Simple Question|
at 21:59 8 May 2018
What the fûck do you do in training???
Our corners were the same every time we took one with the same outcome.
We played the same balls throughout the game with little or=r no guile or invention.
We are so predictable you have to ask questions of the training regime. The effort tonight can't be faulted. The ability linked with lack of tactics has lost us our place in the PL.
How many is it now? 2 goals in 7 matches? 2 goals!!!

Do not go gently into the good night
|Stoke v Palace|
at 12:36 5 May 2018
Ok, only 5 minutes gone, but I can only see a Stoke win here. Palace not looking that sharp.
Can you tell with just 5 inured gone? I think so yes.
|Atletico v Arsenal|
at 20:34 3 May 2018
Should we be hoping for an Atletico win tonight so that they'd have no reason to play a weakened team against Huddersfield next week?
at 16:33 8 Apr 2018
I've posted many times on here about our home form and how it differs to our away form.
We are a different kettle of fish at home. Even if we chalk off the Arsenal and Liverpool games (!!!!) as being shots to nothing against bigger sides, we beat Burnley and most recently West Ham with good performances.
I can't say for definite whether we'll win one, two or any of our remaining home games but I'm positive we will get enough points from them. I can be negative when it comes to the Swans but I wish a few more on here would be a bit more poitive about our prospects seeing 4/6 are at home.
And Ayew is back.
