  1. Fair on the heat thing, I hadn't realised.
  2. Sorry to be 'that' guy but I think people are looking at this in a canny simplistic way. Clark has been a good servant to the club. It may have been stupid what he did today, but he's done it whilst playing in soaring heat more than likely, whilst his PL career (and salary) is coming under much scrutiny and likely going down the pan and has already received a lot of criticism and most likely abuse for Norwich. So there absolutely is pressure for someone like him. That being my next point, what he did vs Norwich, whilst again, lacked a consideration for the bigger pictu

    Russia

    I don't doubt that, but I still thibk thatbas a nation we feel that way. Moreso than any of the other parties working for the allied forces. Whilst our commonwealth may have been born out of disgusting colonialism it also saved us from living in a Nazi world...

    Russia

    Nations and people need to truly forgive, but that cannot happen without to some degree, forgetting - and I believe we should never forget. So it is understandable why Britain has created many global enemies. We have to use things like Nazi Germany as a lesson in what to never, ever do. But it's difficult to do that without thinking it in a simplistic way of who are the goodies and baddies. That's our simplistic teaching of life, always has been. The reality is different, good people do bad things and bad people do good things, occasionally.

    I just feel we feel as a nation forever in debt to the States because of WW2. Yet that massively undermines the tragic loss of Russian life that ultimately won the allies the war (as well as the Americans). Nazi Europe was squeezed from both sides by the number-strong armies whilst Britain surgically took them down across Europe and North Africa. It just seems to me that we've had our time as a nation, the world has had enough major war and as a species we need to collectively dial our fucking necks in. The big players moreso than anyone else. If we don't, the collateral will be th

    Russia

    Haven't read through much of the thread at all but the last couple of posts were definitely interesting. I'm not gonna pretend to be all historian but my general feeling towards Russia is that I don't have much issue with it on the whole and that we're fed subtle propaganda from the states all the time about how they (the Americans) are the heroic peace makers and seemingly Russia is always the bad guy. In loads of their films or tv series, there's always some sort of Russian or former USSR soviet bad guy or some shit. It's like it's brainwashing the planet to think these people ar

    Fucking Sunderland These bastards really think we have sent in undercover agents whilst we have a PL match on at the same time? And they call us deluded. What a bunch of whoppers.

    Haha! There's been another amusing suggestion in the groups WA, if we do it, I'm sure it'll be one of our most amusing displays/acts yet.

    Isn't required. Eddie Howe's clean sheet mags.
  11. Haha! Hate to say I told you so... But... Nar, joking aside, we all see things differently, and for a long time - against my nature - I've been pessimistic and hateful of what the club has been. I've been disengaged and alienated. So to be negative now that we have enough to cling onto, as much as it may be clutching at straws, is just a bit of a no-go for me. I'm making up for lost time with my ridiculous optimism.
