Featured: That was the week that was (Oct 12-18 2019)

Saturday Oct 12:

 

With no footy this weekend all eyes turned to the legends game up at Ibrox. Ok, not all eyes, as I didn’t watch it and I daresay most of you didn’t either. I don’t know what it is, but these games don’t do it for me at all. They used to. I loved seeing all the old boys getting a run out and I’d be as nostalgic as anyone. Something has changed now though. It might be me or it might be the fact that the likes of Babb, Kvarme and Diao are often wheeled out, and no-one wants to see that.

 

I saw some clips on Twitter of this one and it left me cold. I didn’t like seeing Stevie playing in blue and I didn’t like seeing H*sk*y back playing in red. Ok, I’m half joking there, I’m not really arsed and don’t have any real ill will towards big Emile, but seeing him score did remind me of something I’d completely forgotten. His spinning the decks goal celebration was sooooooo fucking shit. I really hate it.

 

I said there was no footy, but what I meant was no proper footy. There are plenty of international games going on and Gini bagged another couple of goals for Holland. He seems to score for them every time he plays, but that’s because Big Red Ron uses him as a number ten playing just off the front man. 

 

Gini is such a good all round player he could play anywhere and do a good job. He’s played centre back and centre forward for us, as well as in various midfield roles and out wide. I think he may have played right back once too? Such a good player, but I often feel he isn’t let off the leash enough for us. 

 

Now and again you can tell he’s got licence to just bomb forward and when he does he’s usually devastating. Most of the time though he’s disciplined and safe and just fills gaps to allow others (usually the full backs) to raid forward. A lot of players wouldn’t sacrifice themselves like that, especially when they’re capable of scoring and creating goals, but it just shows what a top lad Gini is. You know what he is? A Dutch James Milner.


Sunday Oct 13:

 

Firmino is linked with Barca by the Spanish press. They need to replace Suarez and Bobby is obviously the best option out there to replace him. I’m not worried because even though South American players tend to see Real and Barca as the pinnacle, I reckon Bobby might be the exception to that rule. He knows what a good thing he’s got going here, and he’ll also have seen what happened to his mate Phil.

 

The article was probably bollocks anyway as it said that the other names on the list were Mbappe, Kane, someone I’d never even heard of and, wait for it….. Marcus Rashford. Hahaha fuck off! Don’t get me wrong, I’m not saying he’s shit, he’s a good player with the potential to be very good. But you don’t replace Luis Suarez with Marcus Rashford and I don’t know how you join those dots from Suarez, Kane, Firmino to Rashford. It’s like saying “I’m replacing the Bentley. I’m trying to decide between a Range Rover, a Jag, a Rolls Royce or a Nissan Quashqai.

They’re all snidey disingenuous twats Dave they just want to split the Van Dijk vote.  The mancs were clearly playing games with all these in and out injury news stories.  The funny thing is it doesn’t make a bit of difference.  We try to play the same way every game regardless anyway and you knew they were going to go for some form of long ball shithouse 5 at the back tactics.

Can’t believe you doubted the Pogba injury. The poor kid hobbled into the stadium on a diamond encrusted walking stick. 

Fixed.

"I didn’t like seeing H*sk*y back playing in red"

His goal against Rangers reminded me a bit like the one he scored against Bayern in the Super Cup in 2001. He was my favourite Liverpool player in the treble season - I remember him smashing in goals for fun - like the goal against Leeds in the FA cup at Elland Road (I hated Leeds and David O'Leary). Not sure why it went downhill from there - he could have been our Drogba.

That’s what wound me up about him one week he’d bully defenders score goals and look unplayable next couple of weeks he’d be shite.

Rio Ferdinand spoke about chatting to him before matches in the tunnel asking about his family being nice etc. He was saying it worked to make sure you were playing against a “nice” Heskey instead of an angry one. In fairness to Ferdinand that’s pretty clever.

Heskey would always be angry when he played against Chelsea for some reason. He'd end up in a war with their centre backs and I loved watching that version of him as he was unplayable. 

 

80% of the time though he was a pussy cat.

 

Could have been a truly great player but just didn't have it in him to do it every week.

Barca need to realise they need to replace Suarez with Ricky Lambert first.

and Mario, don't forget Mario. 

 

Even though I'm sure we'd all love to.

    • When the Nazis came to power, the first anti-Jewish thing they brought in was the Civil Service Law which forbade Jews from working in the civil service or public office. A couple of years later, they banned Jewish doctors from treating non-Jewish patients. During the pandemic, all NHS doctors and nurses - that refused to be vaccinated - were fired. If you're a newly qualified nurse/ doctor, you can't practice medicine without mandatory COVID vaccination.   They then stopped Jews from being members of the Reich Ministry of Culture. The Nazis did this to stop them working in radio stations, in theatres, or producing artwork of any kind - ostensibly, taking their voice away from them. They also held mass bonfires to burn books by Jewish authors. David Icke had his youtube channel removed for questioning the official narrative of the virus. Lots of social media commentators have been de-platformed for similar things. Chinese doctors who challenged the WHO narrative were rounded up and disappeared.   The Nazis then boycotted Jewish businesses to weaken the Jewish people financially. Greece has brought in a law where unvaccinated people have to pay a 100 euro fine every month. Many countries are talking about fines for people going out if they are unvaccinated.   The Nazis then brought in the Nuremberg laws of 1935, which stripped Jews of German citizenship and started segregating them from the rest of society. They were forbidden from marrying non-Jews or having sexual relationships with them. We have a media that paints the unvaccinated as moronic, dangerous, stupid and most of all... selfish. Unvaccinated people are not allowed at sporting events, concerts, restaurants etc.    In 1938, the Reich Supreme Court declared that being a Jew was grounds for dismissal in any job. We've seen many private companies follow the governments lead and sack their staff if they are unvaccinated. How long until being unvaccinated is an official sackable offence in every job?   Jews are now required to carry papers. Their passports are marked with a red letter 'J' to differentiate them from non-Jews. The famous badges that depict the Star of David are brought in the following year. COVID passes are now necessary for travel. Private businesses can refuse entry if you don't have an 'up to date' COVID pass. Current and up to date has changed. The government initially promised COVID passes for all people who had double vaccine status. Now it requires a booster jab, and presumably, the next booster jab will invalidate the first, and so on. It's kind of similar to the way the Nazis would change the law every couple of months to make a Jewish persons papers invalid.    The Nazi's then sent 30,000 Jewish leaders to concentration camps. The Nazi's did this for the German people's protection, of course. Then the curfews started. And the rest, as you say, is history. 
    • That's been coming for a while.
    • Yeah, talk about somebody making the most of their opportunity. 
        I still think being jaded after too much football hasn't helped Bobby in the last couple of years either, so hopefully we'll start to see more from him when we need him in January. 
    • I had a very brief read of his twitter feed and I think it may be a clever parody account :    "i've wanted to be a girl but i've also wanted to be a boy and then other times wanted to be a hamster or something so perhaps the commonality is i want to transcend the physical limitations of this body and live up to my true potential as a 9th level spellcaster shapeshifter :P
