Another Drive4show 'Anything goes' thread

Post by beninho on Sun 07 Jan 2018, 12:20 pm

First topic message reminder :

Stoke have spent 10 years in the premier league, they are bottom 3 and dumped out the cup by coventry. The perspy is that they are an established prem team, hughes has them shipping goals, not scoring and being certainties for relegation. They have spent big money on wimmer who has struggled, imbula who is out on loan and berahino who cant score, bojan is well paid and on the bench for alaves. Stoke fans have perspective, hughes had no clues. Surprised he stayed this long.

My family are potters!

Why is the "Labour government of the 70's" relevant?
At least Labour in the 60's lifted Britain from the 50's post-war malaise into the 70's. Transformative when you look back at it.
And they weren't Thatcher (horrible person) who preached the me-first politics of division now being refined and taken to an unprecedented level in the US.
Not anti-Tory or pro-Labour but the narrative that 1970's Britain was somehow the Dark Ages of deprivation is altogether bogus.

Has anybody mentioned student grants yet ?  My sister and I both went to university in the 70s and it didn't cost our parents any more than it would have if we'd stayed home.  Under today's fee structure I think maybe one of us at most would have gone.

And: Talking of politics:
What is the point of Arsenal risking 60M on Aubameyang at this stage of the season?
Some of the best transfers are the ones you don't make Arsene.

On the other hand, looks like Pep made a good move with Laporte though wonder if that's because he has doubts about Stones?

So...how many people thought Federer would finish a tremendous career with 17 Majors? Now look where he is, quite remarkable.
Let’s transfer that template over to Golf. How many people think Tiger Woods will finish a tremendous career on 14 Majors??

Apart from a Nike swoosh I don’t see many other parallels, does anyone else think Woods will do a “Federer”??

I don't like May or her party, but I despise Corbyn and McDonald. A pair who think Venezuela is a good model of how to run a country surely cannot be allowed to gain power here. The idiot youth who vote for him are too young to remember how bad a real Labour government of the 70's was.

I’m fascinated by this Venezuela comparison. I mean why go halfway round the world to a country with a despotic leader and a completely different set of economic/political values which could never realistically be described as Democratic Socialism when a much more obvious example of what we should be aspiring to if we’re going to have a decent pop at Democratic Socialism is just across the North Sea in Sweden. I suppose being reasonably successful with a high standard of public provision doesn’t quite sit well with a right wing narrative.
Headscratch I don't think Super's post was a pop at the Democratic Socialism (whatever that is) so much as a pop at the fact that Corbyn/McDonald think Venezuela's version of anything is a good model to follow.

Generally thought Fed would win some more on the faster surfaces, but he's doing better than I thought. His game isn't attritional like Nadal/Murray/Djoko so always thought he'd have a longer career than them. Best of all time in my view, although I'd like to see what a 21st century Laver would have looked like.

Woods? Dunno. Never say never, but I don't think he's winning many/any more. His game won't ever re-capture the 2000/2005 versions and the McIlroy's etc don't fear him. A pretty focussed individual and I doubt he cares about anything but Majors, so I wouldn't write him off entirely.

14 is where it will most likely finish JAS, Federer is the consummate professional, graceful and balletic on court despite being fairly smug. Woods on the other hand has taken very poor care of his body and his most recent swing doesn't look very natural at all, quite notchy in fact. He doesn't have that Faxon like putting ability anymore and his driving is still terrible, furthermore he's got probably a bigger load of talent in his way than at any other time in his career, and certainly more than Federer has in his way.
NMR (Need more Reps) will be doing well to win another proper tournament and get back into the top 50.

I'm 50, I think that's older than you Super, I #was 12 when that Labour govt ended and wouldn't pretend to remember or understand what they were like. The world was different back then, the Unions were very powerful, the economy has been weak for quite a while and in the end Callaghan had, just like May has now, a minority govt. In other words, very difficult to rule.
I don't really see how you can write off the possibility that a moderate socialist govt would fail solely based on 3 years that happened 40 years ago in a completely different set of circumstances and economic climate. What you can do is look at the policies they are currently proposing and make a judgement based on that, fair enough if you disagree, but comparing it to something that you were a very small child during doesn't seem particularly useful to me.

How "moderate" do you think with Pinko Corbyn and Maoist McDonald at the helm, and with that fat ugly, useless turd Dianne Abbot likely to be in the cabinet in a prominent role surely it could only be a disaster?
I'm not pretending to remember what it was like in the 70's as I didn't live in Britain in the 70's and wasn't old enough to remember anyway, i'm going on what I've read and heard from people who did and the general poor state Britain was in during this decade.

On another note I see Paddy Jackson and his shifty little eyes that are too close together could be facing a long stretch in pokey.

Nothing other than  her looks reflect her ability as a shadow minister. She's a complete liability, so much so they had to pretend she was "Ill" during the last election so she wouldn't do any more damage to the party.
You'd have to be a complete idiot to give an imbecile like her a ministerial job, i'm sure she's a decent MP, but that is where it ends. Controversy and ineptitude follow her everywhere.

You have to think that she only keeps getting jobs because Corbyn used to indulge in rodgerisation with her when she was presumably less fat and less ugly.

Typical of you to be a hypocrite though Mac as you're not above commenting on people's appearance are you?

I'll raise your Labour liability with Boris for the Tories. And he's probably the next cab on a very poor rank to be PM. Abbott has many faults but I prefer her over that jibbering moron.
You can put as many silly names in front of the Labour leadership, the fact is the policies laid out are both moderate and popular.

No problem with that Diggers, I'm not slagging off Abbot in order to support the Tories, but she's a truly awful minister.

The policies can't be that popular though Diggers, May is at the helm of the worst Tory party in decades, and Corbyn still couldn't win or even come close to winning. Corbyn is part of the problem for Labour because for every moronic student who protests the name of a Café in London who supports him, there's a lot of Labour people, including those in his own party who are remainers' and who cannot stand him. In many ways he's as bad a leader as May is.

I think Tiger will win a few more tournaments, maybe even a WGC at somewhere like Firestone. I also think he will contend again at a major, but won't win any more.

There’s probably more that we disagree on than agree on in politics but yes she is most definitely Labours number one electoral liability by far. A bit of a paradox as she has one of the largest majorities in the house but that should never (for her) translate into any form of cabinet responsibility.

So unpopular with the middle of the road public, it must make them question Corbyns judgement in continuing to give her a platform.

I think Tiger got a better RESULT than he probably expected but that was because the other players came back to him. I don’t know his stats but I don’t think he hit many fairways. I think it’s too early to say whether he’s back. Would he need a tournament where everyone struggles for four days - and he could succeed as he seems to struggle all the time at the moment and he’s used to it. I would like to see a few more tournaments before I judge. Not to say I don’t want him to win more, as I like to see records broken. And 5 more majors would then make him the GOAT.

There’s an ability to grind still there punctuated by too many mistakes though. As the rust recedes so will the mistakes but I still think there’s too much negative baggage there now. What would be really interesting is what would happen if he got a W under his belt. Never underestimate the transformative effect of confidence. Having said that I don’t see him getting a W and also he’s only one wild swing away from a new injury.

Golf and Footy mixed story,
Leicester have announced they have bought 180 acre Park Hill Golf Club for new training centre.
Course was built about 20 years ago and longest track in the county.All staff redundant gates shut and 500 plus members looking for a new home -which will ironically help a few other clubs.
Much more money in football than golf.May have to sell Mahrez to pay for it though.

Pundits claiming that Giroud is a steal, 17.5m for a 31 year old with no real sell on value and only an 18month contract. Its a bonkers deal by chelsea.

Two talented youngsters going to two top 7 german teams on loan, not a great tbing for tge premier league.

I reckon that Eddie Howe could probably do as good a job at Man Utd as Mourhino has, if you look at what he's delivered it's amazing really. As good as Ponch at Spurs if you compare resources. Never gets a mention for a big job really. His sides are resilient, play nice football and clearly think he's a top bloke (along with his sidekick, they definitely come as a pair).

My Dad was in the RAF and we lived for 2 yrs from 9 - 11 at a camp between Marlow & Henley.
Idyllic really, could just take the bike out through the woods at the back and join the Marlow / HW road just south of the town. Would have gone to HWRGS but went to borstal instead.

How much longer can Allardyce hold the Everton dressing room together?
When they win, it's all him; when they lose the players are "pathetic".
Everton are like a sinking ship at the moment - time to get someone in to take advantage of the youngsters in the squad and build, not bully. Too many square pegs in round holes, particularly defensively.

On the subject of football, Villa making it 6 wins in a row keepin the pressure on Derby for second spot.

Also Johnny Sexton, what a player.
Great drop goal, last kick of the game to snatch victory in Paris.

Good sporting fall all round.

Akinfenwa still doing a decent job.
He looks more suited to a rugby pitch.

I will admit I wasn't impressed when we signed bayo, I thought he was a joke of s player, but I've been proven very wrong. He scores, he assists, he creates space, he holds thr ball, he is actually pretty good.

Everton should get Silva in thet were willing to pay for him not long ago, now just pay off big sam.

Some finish at Anfield, Kane into the 100 club, though took a couple of tries.
I can't stand Fat Sam, but I think if Silva had gone to Everton when Allardyce did, with a team getting utterly spanked every week, he'd be getting praise if he'd gotten the same points return as Sam has.
He does frustrate with his team selection, have to say Walcott for 20m is a steal though.

Klopp gets interviewed after the game claims the first pen was offside, it had already been discussed how loveren played him on when he touched the ball ywt he was not challenged on his comments.

I don't like the over the top fan reactions, fueled by hype, phone ins,pundits and social media. Claims the second one wasn't a pen by liverpool fans. It looked a pen at the time, its not a ckear cut howler, wheres the reasonable nature of fans.

I can't stand Lamela though; one of the nastiest, nigglyest Premier Leaguers. A bit like Ramires used to be for Chelsea, always leaving something in, always looking for something, wish someone would really take him out. Though not necessarily in the penalty area.

Klopp could have helped himself though by not going so defensive after that really good first half - the press disappeared, full-backs stayed back, no width. Fair result but I hated the dodgy penalties, and Ciaran Clark's earlier. Three 40%'ers for me.

ben,
I'm a Bills fan, but if they're not there, which they haven't been since their four-year run of runner up finishes 25+ years ago, I'll usually go with the AFC. Pats are big around here though so I'll be strictly neutral!

Some funny Tweets out there from Eagles players who are getting no love from the locals. Vikings fans supporting Patriots at this one apparently.

Disappointing with two dodgy penalties so late in the game. Didn’t know super_realist had a side gig as linesman?
Not convincingly executed by Kane the first one, eh?

Yep. The offside/not offside of the first one is irrelevant to me as blatantly Kane dives. The offside bit of it's weird as well, as Kane is clearly offside when the pass is played - Lovren isn't in any position to react and decide not to make an attempt to block the pass as there's no way he can process Kane's position for certain at that moment. No pen and yellow card for Kane.
The second one is hard to judge, but in slo-mo it looks like VvD pulls his swingling leg once he realises Lamela is there, but Lamela goes down as if he's been shot in the head. Not sure there's any contact there at all.

They really need to get the VAR system in and operating properly as a matter of some urgency. Good game for the neutral though!

Harry Kanes was a penalty all day of the week, happens everytime, like the watford one last night. As soon as the goalie doesnt get the ball its a pen. And from what I read he eas onside as soon as loveran ballsed up jis attempt to clear it.  

The lamela one, looks a bit suspect in slow mo, but looked like a pen at the time.

Yes it happens all the time. But if there isn't contact and the striker dives - which was the case with Kane as well as last night? You can't say it's automatically a pen if the goalie doesn't get it, even if the striker dives. IMO the striker should be in control of the ball and have a clear chance at goal if he is to be awarded a penalty for diving. And if that's the case the refs should be competent enough to award a pen without the striker having to dive. If I wanted to watch the Swan Lake I'd go to the ballet.

Re. Kane. Nonsense and sums up so much of what's wrong with pro football. There's quite a difference from the keeper not getting the ball and actually bringing the man down. Kane dived and should have been booked. No ifs, no buts.

Trivia

I often like to post any golf questions that come up in the pointless jackpot round but tonight's might be a little easy. Anyway here it is.

"Name a mens major winning golfers with an "x", "y" or "z" in their surname?"

Have a go and I will let you know if you get a pointless answer, you almost certainly will.
