It had to be Labour didn't it. One of their MP's is apparently neither a man nor a women. Now don't get me wrong, I will happily speak to anyone regardless of what / who you are but come on, you are either male or female. This gender stuff is absolute nonsense.
I really can't understand why those working class "men" in northern mining towns are considering not voting for the Labour "person" standing as their MP and switching to Tory. What with D Abbott's idea of all female shortlists, it is such a mystery why these northern towns might switch.
We can talk about who is to blame but ultimately the man at the very top is getting everything wrong. From late shirts, record defeats to £220 coaches. If you are a good owner, you appoint the right manager, you provide funds to buy players, you appoint the right people on the board. Leicester, Bournemouth, Man City, Liverpool have decent owners who get it right.
Plus you don't own a football club and never speak to the fans.
Anybody else get fed up with buying a drink in football stadiums and they take away the top? This is in case I throw the top at other fans said a steward. If I really wanted to throw something, could I not throw coins? What will they do to prevent that then? They also allow me to take in my metal flask of tea but not allowed a bottle top.
The ironic thing is, one of my children spilt their drink because the bottle didn't have a lid and then fans were slipping all over the place. Well done health and safety nutters. They are so stupid.
That is a performance I am proud of. Win, lose or draw, I expect the team to put a shift in - that's all. Well done Saints.
I am the first to moan when we don't try. But credit where it is due if deserved. If we dam well tackle and work hard, we can get results. The defence is good enough if it tries hard enough. If we don't put a shift in, we will lose and then the fans will be negative. Put a shift in and the fans will be positive: it's very simple. That is all we ask.
The draw took place at 8:45 this morning without being on TV. I think it was on the radio. Both Manchester clubs drawn against lower league opposition. Liverpool v Villa too. Set up for money spinning semi finals and a Manchester Derby or Manchester v Liverpool final?
I was speaking to a saints foundation staff member today. He said that the players don't agree with the strategy of buying young players to develop them. The view is that this takes time and hasn't been working anyway. We have spent 65 million on rubbish because they are young. We spent another 15 million on Adams to develop. The players feel that the money would be better spent on proven players.
We talked about how we could have bought Perez (proven and obv scoring 3 last night) Cahill (free), and other proven players but they are too old and require higher individual transfer fees according to our strategy. The players don't agree with it. No excuse for their appalling performance but they are in disagreement with the club and hence the continued chaos. He also said that Ralph wanted to sign a striker from his ex club but was told no as he would cost 30 million. The players apparently didn't like the way Austin was treated feeling that we needed his experience.
