    Zack Steffen Negativity

    I guess its first impressions with some people. The second QPR goal was a very bad mistake and in early games he seemed to punch when it would have been safer to catch. Punching often kept the ball in play near your own goal. He now punches less. Overall a better than average Championship...

    Roofie was Boston dependent on the health of the vegetable and to some extent fruit growing markets, say canning factories, haulage companies? A big employer in Lincoln was Rushton Gas Turbines they must have employed several thousand, when I was there the University was just beginning. Higher...

    Mr Prisoner its called "Free Trade" and why should it not be the way forward? The default for trade should be to free trade in my opinion, its basic economics (David Ricardo). It increases the whole cake for everyone because nations concentrate on producing what they are specialists in and use...

    Switches is a big market actually. C&K switches manufacture 55,000 different types some are very technical. Its a billion dollar company. These are not electrical light switches that Posters buy at B&Q.. What I find difficult to understand is why a product was perfectly fine to export one week...

    Sounds like you make a poroduct opposed to distribute other products or sell a service? I asked because selling a product has more scope for setting up a EU distribution service i.e ship in bulk to Belgium and then samller distribution from Belgium to particularly small customers in the EU. I...

    Tend to agree Trug - but Boston to me is a more extreme version for left behindness, partly because of its remoteness. Towns such as Bradford and Huddersfield are daily commutable to the like of Leeds and Manchester, but Boston is not a daily commute to a Metro City or London. In Boston local...

    England v USA

    A lot of the media and fans in this country seemed to have dismissed USA as a poor footballing country. But the differences between the USA and England are not as great as they were in the past to me and have the British media and fans fully caught up? I spoted a decent USA player thinking he...

    Roofie - I worked in Lincoln for a year in the early 1990s and taught students from many parts of Lincolnshire. Boston was seen as probably the most deprived then. It was over 60 minutes drive to Lincoln to get to College for them. Fruit and Vegetables - Although the price of food has shot up...

    Any realistic potential Boro signings you have seen at world cup so far.

    I haven't seen much of the WC, but last night I thought some the USA team were interesting for example McKennie. I don't kniow what club he plays for.

    Warnock reveals secret behind Watmore signing and how it almost didn't happen [Gazette]

    Ref Warnock I never 100% believe what he says when is telling a story - He is a natural story tellers there is always an element of entertainment and biging himself up. Did people always believe what Cloughie said? But people remembered what he said, because of the spin he put on it which in...

    Mick Lynch.

    Ticket prices have shot up in the last 5 years - I would say by around 50% for me - Lets say 8% a year. The number of staff has reduced in the ticket office (through automation/new tech), not sure about the rest of the network, but there doesn't seem to be many guards now. Makes you wonder...

    Dehenna Davison Tory MP for Bishop Auckland

    I would have thought she would have made a move for a safer seat in say North Yorkshire, maybe the other N/E Tories are ahead of her in the queue. It must be odds against the Conservatives hanging on to Bishop Auckland.
