Recommended Posts

As we seem to be on a bit of a youtube clip-fest today, how about your favourite comedy sketch?


And I stress sketch - no stand-up or clips from films allowed...


I'll start us off with an oldie...

I had trouble finding the scenes I wanted but these two are funny.



These are very funny; but they're scenes, not sketches.

Sally Phillips has got a chat/clips show on Gold called "My Favourite Sketch".


Seems a good enough reason to bump this thread.


Here's a pearler from the Two Ronnies.

The best thing French & Saunders ever did was the Expat Wives sketch.  For some reason, I can't find it on YouTube, I can only find it embedded on someone else's website.

    • Not the most important thing in the world for a football club although in today's FFP environment, they count. And it shows once again that the club is extremely well organised and run off the field while being self sustaining.   Liverpool FC has filed its annual financial accounts for the season in which the club won its sixth UEFA Champions League title and invested a club record £223m on players. Summary of the financial period Won sixth UEFA Champions League title Four new player signings Eleven player contracts extended First official training partnership signed Nine new commercial partnerships signed Maintained seventh position in Deloitte Football Money League £50m invested in training ground opening in July During the reporting period for the year to May 31, 2019, Alisson Becker, Naby Keita, Fabinho and Xherdan Shaqiri all signed for LFC, with Danny Ward, Danny Ings, Ragnar Klavan, Dominic Solanke and Lazar Markovic leaving the club. The first-team squad was further reinforced with 11 players renewing their contracts, including club captain Jordan Henderson, Roberto Firmino, Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane, Andy Robertson and Trent Alexander-Arnold.   Turnover increased during the period by £78m to £533m, which represents sustained growth across the club and enabled the further investment into the playing squad. All three revenue streams saw rises, with media revenue increasing by £41m to £261m, commercial revenue increasing by £34m to £188m, and match revenue increasing by £3.5m to £84m. The increase in turnover is a result of a new UEFA Champions League broadcasting deal which commenced in this period, a second-placed finish in the Premier League and higher partnership and merchandising value. Overall profit before tax for the period was reported at £42m. Andy Hughes, LFC’s chief operating officer, said: “This continued strengthening of the underlying financial sustainability of the club is enabling us to make significant investments both in player recruitment and infrastructure.   “Being able to reinvest over £220m on players during this financial period is a result of a successful business strategy, particularly the significant uplift in commercial revenues.   “The cost of football, however, does continue to rise in transfers and associated fees but what’s critical for us is the consistency of our financial position, enabling us to live within our means and continue to run a sustainable football club.” Liverpool maintained its seventh position in the Deloitte Football Money League having moved up two places from ninth during the previous financial year.   Nine new commercial partners joined the club, including its first official training partnership with AXA. Retail had a record-breaking season in sales with footfall surpassing a million fans into the official LFC stores. The club’s international expansion plans have also grown with a new retail partner announced in Malaysia, shop-in-shop opened in Thailand and new selling channels on Amazon in USA, Canada and Germany. E-commerce orders were shipped to more than a record 190 countries worldwide.   Digitally, the club’s global social media followers increased by 26 per cent to nearly 70m. LFC’s official YouTube channel reached 2.5m subscribers and is the most-followed club in the Premier League. Twitter also increased by 11 per cent to 13.5m and reached 59m total engagements during the 2018-19 season – 6m more than any other Premier League club.   Hughes added: “What we’re seeing is sustained growth across all areas of the club, which is aligned to the recent performance on the pitch. Since this reporting period we have continued to reinvest in the club’s infrastructure and we look forward to the opening of our new training base at Kirkby ahead of the new season, which will provide first-class facilities for our players and staff.   “We have also just completed a second-phase consultation on a proposed expansion of the Anfield Road stand which could see an increase in the stadium’s capacity, giving even more supporters the opportunity to see the team. There is more work to do and, importantly, we will continue our dialogue with all key stakeholders, including local residents, businesses and community groups.   “These financial results and this sustained period of solid growth is testament to our ownership, Fenway Sport Group, who continue to support the club’s ambitions and continue to reinvest revenues both in strengthening the playing squad and the club’s infrastructure to build for the future.”   https://www.liverpoolfc.com/news/announcements/388376-liverpool-fc-financial-results-statement
    • Great article, thanks for posting. Make it so, Jurgen, sign Timo up.
    • He has a clause that expires in April, we need to start working on a contract soon. He knows if we don't then his chance to play for the greatest club in the world is gone.
