    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.

    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.

    It's great news about Razoray, and we've shared a couple of mutual experiences re chemo side effects! He knows that I got the all-clear a couple of weeks ago, as regards the danger of my cancer spreading to the brain. It was weird having that outcome on the back-burner whilst focusing on a certain magnificent sporting event, but such is life. I'm undergoing stem cell transplant soon and have got an operation on Monday for a Hickman Line to be inserted. I only just got rid of the Picc Line in my arm, and now have to get this thing that goes into your chest and neck. The Picc was a pain, initially having to wrap my arm in clingfilm before getting a shower. On one occasion, I waited for my wife to come to the ward and help me (do it for me), only to find out that there was no shower working on the ward, and I would not be allowed to use another ward's shower due to the danger of cross contamination. After 3 days of this I was a bit ripe, in a festival wet-wipes kind of way. Luckily there is a brilliant elasticated arm cover that you can get for £15 (it has definitely been worth buying it) and it arrived a day before the shower was fixed. Being stuck on a ward with everything being done for/ to you made me feel a little infantalised and frustrated, particularly having previously an NHS worker. There is so much time to kill, as the hours drag by. Keeping myself clean, in spite of all the chemo side effects, took on an even newer and greater importance. So, feeling a bit annoyed and pissed off that it will be an even bigger pain to shower with the Hickman than with the Picc, I did some browsing to see what was available to keep the line dry and sterile. There was really only one website selling the bags, so have decided to wait until Monday and see what the medical staff can do in terms of waterproof dressings. Anyway, I came upon this website during the search and immediately felt a little less inconvenienced and sorry for myself: http://wiggly-bags.yolasite.com/ I'm not affiliated with these people in any way, in case anyone is worried. It's just I know how much stress and anxiety this experience has caused my wife, so can only imagine what it might be like for the parents of such young children undergoing such a horrible illness. Cancer really needs to be cunted in the bastard.Despite all the chemo discomfort undergone as a patient, it is horrible to see what friends and family have to go through, as they want to help but are left feeling helpless. But as Razoray has found out, people can amaze you with their kindness.
