    I've just come across this thread for the 1st time. Some tough stuff to read on here, although I've not read it all. I was diagnosed with terminal/stage 4 bowel cancer around a year ago and was put on palliative chemo to try and help control it. With all the luck the world can muster, after 2 rounds of treatment I'd reacted to an extent that they wanted to operate. This was still not to be a cure as some of my cancer was inoperable, but it was to extend my life. However, after having my operation, they're hopeful that the chemo has got the cancer in those inoperable areas. I'm now back on chemo, but they're classing it as adjuvant now and the hope is this is the last round with a view of giving me the all clear in the autumn. I'm not out of the woods yet, but what a fucking difference a year makes. I'm not too comfortable sharing the experience (hence why I've never posted about it before and not talked about the journey I've been on), but really I posted this as I know speaking with people who are going through or have been through a similar thing can be really helpful. I'm sure everyone's situation is very personal, but I think parts of the journey can feel similar. If there's anyone who's going through this shit or has a loved one going through it and just wants a chat, please PM me.

    Id probably try and justify it anyway i could. I would tell myself that the inevitable inflated commercial deals are due to our long and storied history. Id tell myself that our increased spending is on the back of years of low net spend. As long as we won things and the atmosphere in the ground remained good and at things like the fan parks, id tell myself that despite the money we were still doing it the right way and we were still different to the other new money teams. Id basically do anything to tey and explain it away and look the other way. Some of you are better people than me. For people like me though, there needs to be strong governance at the top, to take looking the other way out of the equation.

    If you'd asked me a couple of seasons ago when things looked pretty bad for us (last season under Rogers or further back under Hodgson) I would have got behind it, though winning stuff wouldn't feel as good as it should. Now we are back and looking good I'd say absolutely no. I don't know what that says about me to be honest.

    I posted on the dark side lately that I was diagnosed with tongue cancer before Christmas. I had surgery where two-thirds of the tongue was removed (replaced with graft from thigh) and had intensive chemo and radiotherapy which finished in March. Lost 3 stone in a rough 6 months but came off the morphine last month and went back to work on reduced hours 4 weeks ago. Work have been extremely supportive and everyone has been so genuinely nice but one colleague blew me away last week. I would deal with this guy intermittently but wouldn't know him that well. He sent me an €100 e-voucher for flights saying that I've had a tough time and will deserve a holiday when better and he just wanted to put something towards it. Some people are class.

    The thing that I love most about the club is the culture. By that I mean the socialist mentality of our fan base and the sense of community that brings. I genuinely do think it separates from the rest. In my head I see it in a different prism to that from the cut-throat capitalist business world that football exists in despite the fact that they're intrinsically linked. I do hate that business side of football with a passion though and it's why I'll never be a fanboy of whichever corporate entity owns the club (although I will happily acknowledge if they are running it well). In particular, I hate the fact that there is such an uneven playing field in the finances across the leagues despite us being a beneficiary of that. As things stand though I can ignore it enough that I enjoy the high moments and this is definitely helped by having a manager and a team that has a collective mentality. If we were acquired by a Qatar or Abu Dhabi I would still continue to support the team as I have invested too much into it over my life but it would feel like a little bit more of it had died. It's on another level than the most common type of owner that's there to milk a fanbase for profits. I think any victories would have a hollow emptiness to them and I would much rather see us win occasional trophies by the team working hard for results than win everything funded by people dying and being imprisoned to fund us lavishly spending out on the world's best players and breaking the rules in the process. There's a lack of soul at both City and PSG. I can't comment on whether that has historically been the case in Paris but I don't think it was at City. I'd absolutely hate for us to become that.

    If we didn't have Klopp these answers would be different methinks. Except fr the Neymar thing -- thats a hard no.

    I think he’s probably better than both of them. He’s decent enough on the ball and very good in the air. Turning circle of a tanker though and suspect positionally. It would be pretty amazing if we break the goalie and defender world records for Allison and Van Dijk and shortly after Chelsea and Man City trump them and come away with Kepa and Maguire to show for it though.

    No thanks. We've been working hard without cheat mode. And doing really well since Jurgen came in, that no money could buy what we have.

    Well, he's been pissing off the Orcs for a while. Interestingly, if you simply add a couple of letters and take half a dozen away, his name's an anagram of a real life wizard, Paul Daniels.

    Totally agree. It's surprised me how "big" this album is - very cinematic with the sweeping strings. Don't go much on Miracle and 1-2 others but overall it's much stronger than I thought it would be. Western Stars is the next great Springsteen song. I don't even mind Sleepy Joe's Cafe - it's sort of growing on me. It's an album of character studies, I reckon. Jon Stewart said it best - you put on Springsteen's music and you never again felt like a loser. When you listen to Bruce’s music, you aren’t a loser. You are a character in an epic poem about...er...losers.

    You’re going to be waiting a long time. We live in an era from the age of mid 30s downwards where people aspire to be contestants on Love Island and Britain’s Got Talent, and dream of being Z list celebrities or social media influencers. Even the army are advertising for recruits based on people’s worst traits.

    Johnson reminds me of a character from Sharpe. Goes riding into battle half an hour after it's finished and twats his head on a branch. Needs a good northern knee in the bollocks.
