VAR
at 10:31 20 Aug 2019

Point of order - it is perfectly acceptable to play the ball with your arm IF in the referee's opinion it was accidental. VAR has made accidental handball a offence if a goal is scored - but not when a goal is not scored. Which seems odd - and completely at odds with rules of the game since before Tom Brown picked the ball up and ran with it. Personally I could live without VAR - it was only brought in because of Fatty Lampard's 'goal' against Germany. Conveniently forgetting that Sir Geoff Hurst would never have got a knighthood without the only other goal that VAR would have overturned in 8o years.

So, which manager will get sacked first this season...
at 10:24 20 Aug 2019

Bruce will be the first Prem mismanager to go - he was installed as the bookies favourite for first sacking before he was even appointed. If you are asking about who will blink first at Old Trafford or Chelski - then Lampard might be forced out by senior players quite quickly - and realistically the baby faced assassin will be shot by xmas unless he can make top 4 look certain.

Did you vote Tory? The only way to improve the rail service is to vote labour and hope they deliver on their promise to create a sane joined up transport system. I'm afraid what you describe is what rail travellers experience ssomewhat regularly in a rail service that is structured to faail badly - and does..

Stamp duty reversal
at 12:58 17 Aug 2019

It wont make any difference at all. Stamp duty is factored into the buyers costs anyway. A much better idea would be to abolish it as it seems a tad strange to tax someone for owning a house. Utterly daft idea from a clueless individual who saw nothing strange in announcing daft immigration rules that would have barred his own father.

I cannot think of any technical reason
at 13:02 16 Aug 2019

The elephant is a bit bigger than that. The Irish border has to remain open to free movemnt of goods and people under the terms of the good friday agreement. In other words Brexit, as presented to racists and bigots as 'taking control of our borders and ending free movement (of immigrants) is and always was utterly impossible. The only solution is to end Brexit, which may have taken a few years, but is now nearly over.

Need some advice on a Watch
at 17:08 15 Aug 2019

I was in a similar position a few years ago. I wanted a Breitling Pilot or Superocean. I ended up with a Baume et Mercier which is fine, just not what I wanted. Now I am older and wiser and have had a few watches from Argos that cost £10 and keep excellent time I councsel you to consider some of the excellent fakes you can get at a fraction of the cost... in particular Adenaurs Piguet. (which I also have and am very happy with)

need advice please.....
at 09:57 14 Aug 2019

I never took my kids into the family enclosure - basic geography tells you this is the worst area of the ground if you want to see some of the match. After a few mistakes near inconsiderate 'standers' in the west stand, which also has poor sight lines for those of normal stature I gravitated to the east stand upper and rarely had any problems with idiots standing, nor with the kids being not able to see. Probably not the same now (or maybe it is?) but they used to house the sight-challenged supporters right at the back of the East stand so they had to get over girders they couldn't see to reach their seats. However, it might a better idea to take them somewhere entertaining - or somewhere like Leiston if you want them to see some decent football

Luton approach
at 11:43 12 Aug 2019

Cup hoodoo? Surely that myth assumes Town have tried to win a cup tie in recent memory? And you then add to the nonsense by proposing a reserve team against their probable reserve team in a tie both teams will attempt to lose. More farce than hoodoo.

Should the EFL distance itself from the Prem

Watched free to air TV recently? Football is Prem first, Scottish Prem 2nd - and then a bt of women's football squeezed in. Already the football league has ceased to exist in media land.

49mph winds at kick off on Saturday
at 08:21 9 Aug 2019

It's not the ref's call. Frequent gusts of wind above 45mph mean public places should be closed for safety reasons. So on that basis the game should already have been postponed, like some of the festivals where 45 mph winds are expected. If there are frequent gusts of 45mph plus during the game the match has to be postponed for safety reasons. High sided vehicles should not be driving either - which might include coaches full of Sunderland players.

An insiders take on Brexit
at 08:16 9 Aug 2019

Not really an insider's view is it as the home office are working at the behest of the cabal in Downing Street? The only way no deal can be stopped now is a legal challenge as the lunatics in charge of the asylum have made clear that BJ will hang on after he loses the inevitable vote of no confidence. This is of course treason, which is why the legal challenge is already prepared and simply waiting for the loonies to demonstrate that they are committing treason by blocking the very paroliament they claim Brexit restores power too. Definite info.

How will the Evans era end?
at 08:11 9 Aug 2019

It will end one of two ways. The only hope is that the club goes belly up and can be re-born run by locals and supporters as a poor-man's Barcelona. This has worked for Cambridge, Luton and Portsmouth - so there is no reason that it couldn't work here, other than the apparent lack of commitment that was evident when Sheepy was trying to milk locals of 'high net worth'. The other way it can end is very visible at Bolton and Bury right now. In the meantime the decline will probably accelerate - leaving Coventry and Blackpool as the closest models we will follow.

Thank you Marcus Evans
at 15:52 7 Aug 2019

You deserve what you get. Evans is evasive with the truth and downright questionable in his dealings. His decisions on personnel since saddling the club with a debt he wiped out are appalling - and initially at least seemed more centred on the Olympics. He has had no clear strategy from day one and seems content to hive off any assets. This season is a very dangerous one for a rudderless club like Town - the strange regulations on contracts and young players greatly benefit a badly run relegated club like Town. Which makes the incompetent Evans (and Lambert) probably believe promotion is probable rather than possible. Reality may intrude in their world.

Anyone with a quality Premier Fantasy player tip
at 15:47 7 Aug 2019

Pick wing backs in defence. Rose and Walker-Peters are certain starters - add in two more if 4-4-2 and think about a 5 man defence, all of whom are wing backs. Last years success are expensive, previous successes a bit cheaper - eg Alonso is now a bit of a steal in defence. Midfielders who take corners, penalties and free kicks are gold dust too. Don't think you have to have Kane and Abamathingy either - and pick a goalie who either plays for Liverpool or Man City.
