Re: lack of hoofball = chances created

What’s the difference between hoofball and “that perfect through ball by Pope for Barnes in the first half”?

I suspect the only difference is that we won today, ergo we must not have been playing “hoofball”.

Re: Poppies

If you equate virtue-signalling with visible displays of support then, yes, wearing a poppy is virtue-signalling. On the other hand, if you're serving in the armed forces or a war veteran, isn't it reassuring to see a visible display that people appreciate the sacrifices that have been made? Anyway...

Re: Poppies

Wearing a poppy is just virtue-signalling, isn’t it? “Look at me! I’ve donated to the RBL!”

I always drop a few quid in their tin but decline the poppy. Not had the chance this year, so I’ll probably donate online on payday.
