  1. Plenty of possible reasons. Chances are they'll probably know a little English, making life a bit easier (as opposed to Swedish, or German, for example). They might believe that as a democratic, tolerant country, the UK will grant them asylum. London being a massive transport hub could make it easier to get home when the war's over too. They might even have friends or family studying here or something, who knows? Bear in mind though that the refugees aren't all coming to Britain. Not even Western Europe. Most are in Turkey or Lebanon (over 4 million), while the Calais 'jungle' is home to
  2. It is a national disgrace that we are letting so few in. The Syrians are coming here to escape a warzone, not to sit in a council flat and live off £35 a week benefits ad infinitum. How a government treats refugees is a good indicator of how they would treat the rest of us if they could get away with it. In any case, after a war ends, most refugees return home (2/3 of Balkans, for example). The main reason for seeking asylum in a land far away from home, with a different language, different climate and different culture is for protection.
  3. Joshua Kimmich, Bayern's new signing, just accidentally confirmed in a press conference that Schweinsteiger is leaving Bayern
  4. It's already established that Warburton wants Kiernan and Wilson as his two centre halves next season, so unless he's playing with three at the back, I don't think it will be a centre back.
  5. First of all, despite the SNP rhetoric, they were still projected to make £6 billion cuts compared to Labour's £1 billion. The only reason they were campaigning to end austerity is because their cuts paled in comparison to the Tories £20+ billion. Secondly, your analogy is a little off. If three guys are telling you to make cuts, and the fourth says not to, that's not necessarily the same as endorsing the status quo. The fourth guy is likely telling you that you don't need to make all these cuts so long as you maybe take up a few more hours of overtime.
  6. Lucky we live in a democracy where everyone can vote for whoever they like and support whichever football team they like.
  7. Juventus were great from kick off until their first goal. Then Real Madrid asserted themselves on the game, only for Juve to regroup and come out all guns blazing second half. Real Madrid taking off their only natural centre mid in Isco for Hernandez cost them any hope of grabbing another. They lost their best passer and were restricted to hopeful crosses.
  8. Was at an evening with Graham Hunter and Sid Lowe last night; they indicated that De Gea to Real Madrid looks likely, Bale wants to stay and that if Barcelona can get their transfer ban overturned, the first person they'll go after is Paul Pogba.
  9. Bell Sinnamon McGregor Zaliukas Wallace Shiels Murdoch Law Walsh Clark Vuckic If only...
  10. Look, we're not a particularly attractive club just now. If you look at the bookies favourites, it's Billy Davies and Stuart McCall, both of whom have had fairly unspectacular management careers. Therefore we need to catch a rising star who can drag us up with him, and Cathro fits the bill perfectly. He's been an unqualified success wherever he has went, he plays nice football and he develops young players fantastically well. In terms of getting us competitive again, it's even riskier taking on an SPL veteran than an ambitious young coach like Cathro.
  11. To beat them, we have to be a lot more disciplined than we've ever been since we began this journey through the leagues. Keep the lines between defence, midfield and attack tight, make sure we don't give many fouls away around the box and we can do it.
