    Should Corbyn remain as Labour leader?

    As anyone with any political knowledge would know, the most famous use of the term 'the enemy within' in this country was Thatcher using it to describe the miners. Hence, its a pretty powerful phrase for any socialist, particularly those who were involved in the miners strikes. It has fuck all to do with anti-semitism. Anyone claiming it does is either totally ignorant, a bit thick, acting the cunt or a combo of all three.

    I don't think the fact that rey is a woman has any relevance whatsoever, the main protagonist in rogue one was a woman and she was a really good character i thought. The problem with the last jedi is that the writing is terrible. Everything else you say is spot on, however.

    Indeed, its all a load of wank made purely to make money.

    Also, this new Solo film. They're making a film about a 'young' han solo, but they don't seem to realise that we've already had 3 films with a young Solo in, and he was played by harrison ford. How is this new fella supposed to live up to that?

    The New Star Wars Films

    Saw The Last Jedi (4/10) recently, was shocked at how bad it was. I'd given up on Star Wars being good again after the shit prequels, then got sucked back in by Rogue One (8/10) which was boss, then this film comes out and its back to square one. Who is suppposed to be the main 'baddie'? The Darth Vader equivalent? Its truly awful. In both the force awakens and The last jedi, every single new character is terrible. Its not that they're acted badly, far from it, they just have nothing. No gravitas, no personality, nothing.

    This is obvious but I don't really think 3 stacks gets this footy lark.

    Virgil Van Dijk

    1. I wouldn't put anything in your mouth you dirty devil 2. Its called wanking 3. Blaming him for Swansea is ludicrous. Years of under funding from various governments is the root cause of swanseas plight yet you want to finger VVD. (Again, dirty devil)

    Virgil Van Dijk

    Being serious for a moment, Spurs had 70% posession yesterday and never looked like scoring. ITs not just VVD. Karius and Robertson are definite improvements although not difficult admittedly. If not for the Wanyama wonder goal it looked as though we may see it out which would not have been conceivable previously.

    You're embarrassing yoursefl agin her mate. Surelty the most expensive defender ever must be able to stop the Wanyama scoring? I'm with you 3 stacks, on the ball as ever.

    VAR Thoughts?

    Please stop taking any notice of what someone who is an an utter moron says about anything. Hers the quotes from Gallagher, which are so wrong its untrue. And he doesn't say that what I sadi is no longer relevant. "Regarding the offside, Kane is in an offside position, there's no doubt about it. However, once Lovren takes ownership of the ball, which he does without doubt, that begins a new phase of play. "What the assistant has to do, Eddie Smart, he has to make up his mind whether Lovren has played the ball and whether Kane moved towards him and interfered with play, which he didn't." His claim that Kane hasn't interfered with play because he hasn't 'moved towards him' is one of the most ridiculous things I've ever heard. Also, whether Lovren played the ball deliberately or not can only be considered once the initial decision has been made as to whether or not Kane was interfering with play. Which he obviously was.

    VAR Thoughts?

    This highlights the main issue with football refs and assistants which is that they are all spectacularly thick. Of course Lovren played the ball deliberately, he was trying to clear it. However, as quoted by Aussie scouser, the relevant rule is the 'interferring with an opponent'. The only way anyone could think that wasn't offside is if they don't think that Harry Kane being where he was has any impact on Lovrens actions. Lovren is only trying to clear the ball to stop it getting to Kane who is in an offside position. Therefore, its fucking offside.
