    News chit chat

    Agree with you to the extent that Corbyn is playing politics by using the lack of agreement over the Brexit deal to push for a general election and agree that it's pretty nauseating. However, I disagree that he has any duty to support the government, quite the opposite. He's the leader of the opposition and as such has a duty to the nation to provide a counter view to what Mrs May is proposing. Given that May's position is a Brexit of some kind, if Corbyn were offering strong opposition he'd be screaming from the rooftops for a second referendum, regardless of his own views and regardless of the way some Northern Labour constituencies may have voted in the referendum. What we have at the moment is May saying "I'm going to lead the country out of the European Union!" and Corbyn retorting "I would also lead the country out of the European Union...........but I would do it every so slightly differently......". It makes for neither a strong opposition nor a particularly compelling debate. Even if we were to have a general election tomorrow, it seems we wouldn't have much of a choice.

    Who do we want?

    I'd like to see us appoint somebody who's worked under Marinakis before. And I've got just the candidate. A man who won two titles for Marinakis over at Olympiakos in 2013 and 2014. A man who as a player scored 96 goals in 403 games for none less than Real Madrid in La Liga. A man who scored 21 goals in 65 internationals for Spain, including a ha-trick against South Korea at Italia 90. I am, of course, talking about José Miguel González Martín del Campo aka Michel. Pairno afton se, Evangelos! (Translation (according to Google): Get him in, Evangelos!

    About your level. Coming from a boil on the arse of humanity such as yourself, I take that as a compliment.

    So you don't think people should be safe to speak their mind outside of parliament? Can you please explain to me why somebody should need protection on the street for voicing an opinion different to that espoused by Brexiteers?

    We didn't know what was on offer at the time as negotiations hadn't started. We now have a concrete offer. Personally I don't think it's as bad as some are making out. Personally I think both remain and leave supporters are going out of their way to make the deal seem worse than it really is for the own political agendas. But surely the most democratic thing to do is let the people decide?

    Don't be a prat. The vote has been honoured in so far as Article 50 has been triggered, we've had two years of negotiations with the EU and we're now less than three months from leaving the EU. All at great public expense and expense to the wider economy, I might add. However, two years on we know things about Brexit, about what it will look like and the implications it will have on the economy and people's lives that make putting the question back to the people in a second referendum perfectly sensible and perfectly democratic. Democracy is about people giving informed consent for politicians to run the country as certain way. Whether you were a leave or remain person, you were not in a position to give informed consent in the first referendum. You are now. That's why I advocate a second referendum.

    Forest 2018/19 thread

    Sorry, who? [Looks up Wikipedia page]: "On January 31, 2017, Ariyibi signed for Championship club and former European Champions Nottingham Forest for an undisclosed fee.[46] Despite impressing for the club's under-23s, Ariyibi failed to make a single appearance for the club's first-team before the end of the season under Gary Brazil, who had signed him as caretaker-manager, or Mark Warburton, Brazil's permanent successor.[47] On July 17, 2017, Ariyibi signed on a season long loan to Milton Keynes Dons,[48] and scored his first goal for the club on August 8, 2017 in a 0–1 EFL Cup first round away win over Forest Green Rovers.[49] After making 28 appearances for Milton Keynes Dons, his loan was terminated in January 2018.[50] Shortly after, Aribiyi joined Northampton Town on loan for the remainder of the season.[51] on April 8, 2018, Aribiyi's loan was cut short due to injury.[52] On January 7, 2019, Ariyibi signed on loan with Motherwell for the remainder of the 2018-19 season.[53]"
