    Non-UK and General Other Football

    So can anyone explain to me exactly how Scotland can qualify for anything if they beat Israel tonight and top their group?

    Or even ask them about the mind-blowing possibility that both pensioners and refugees are getting treated like shite! Why is it always one, or the other? Well, we all know why it's portrayed in that way by those who start these chain messages.

    A lot of his stuff is just plain mental, but as someone who did their fair share of work on Glasgow building sites during my younger years his take on the Glasgow plasterer is absolutely spot on and fucking hilarious (well, the first few minutes anyway, he goes a bit off the boil as the video goes on);

    The saddening thing is, framing the way a lot of pensioners are treated in this way just removes the spotlight from that worthwhile cause, although I'd guess that how pensioners are treated by our Government isn't the main thrust of their point.

    Ah, gotcha. Yeah, Freddie pretty much was Queen from a performance standpoint.

    I didn't think much of his solo stuff to be honest, and prefer his stuff as part of Queen.

    Even in 2018, there's still people who honestly should know better who post this kind of shit. Someone I went to school with posted it, and normally I wouldn't bother even replying, but this morning I posted a reply saying "honestly mate, google "what do refugees get in the UK?" and read the official fucking government website that lays it out for you." His answer? "Yeah, but still." You can't possibly argue with that kind of reasoning.

    UFC Denver: Zombie vs Rodriguez - Nov 10

    From the bits and bobs that I'd read over the years I was always under the impression that Winklejohn was the business head of the gym, while Jackson was more the amiable, slightly whacky trainer that fighters enjoyed working with. Sounds like Wink is simply looking at Cowboy as maybe a fighter with not long left in the game and chose a younger fighter over him, while Jackson simply doesn't want to cause issues or get involved.

    UFC Denver: Zombie vs Rodriguez - Nov 10

    It's just Winklejohn from what I believe, as Cowboy has said numerous times that he's still on great terms with Greg Jackson. It's for that very reason that Jackson didn't corner Perry.

    Golden Boy MMA - Chuck vs. Tito III

    It's one of the few times where I'll probably check the result and a review or two before watching it. If it ends badly for either, or something happens that's quite nasty I'll give it a pass.

    Golden Boy MMA - Chuck vs. Tito III

    In many ways I see this as a far lesser quality version of Conor vs Khabib. If Ortiz gets the takedown it's pretty much all over, while Chuck obviously has the power to stop the fight on the feet. I give him a punchers chance early on, but can't see him doing much if the fight goes past a few minutes.

    Brexit

    The problem, for me personally, is that the EU is the next step in removing further power from the actual people. It's the centralisation of power that I don't like. Truth be told, we could object to an EU army all we like, but it'll go through eventually. As the President of the European Commission once said;

    Brexit

    What makes you think that we'd be a "voice of reason?" If this EU army does come to fruition then I'm glad we look as though we'll not be a part of it. The increasing drive to centralising power that the EU represents disturbs me greatly, and if us getting out can do anything to help halt that, or even convince other nations to do the same then it'll be worth it in my opinion.

    Brexit

    The only slight positive I can see come of all this is that other nations such as Italy see us leaving and press to do the same, at which point the people in charge will realise that the EU as it is isn't fit for purpose. I remember years back when I used to argue with friends about my reasons for wanting out of the EU I would mention a future where we see an actual EU centralised army, and they all laughed at me, saying we'd never see such a thing and that I was "bonkers" for thinking that. Yeah, not laughing so much now.
