    It’s a cunt. Never thought I would be that fella but it got me. The wife cheated on me with her ex on Facebook and it turned me into a paranoid loon. He lived in America but it stung me to the point I went into a downward spiral. Been on setraline but now live in scotland and have no family or close friends around me… been a rough 6 months but I’m starting to come out the other end. Still have really bad days but my little girl keeps me going. Had some days I really didn’t want to go on. It really does get better… just stick in there

    Thanks for all the good wishes folks, I'm away for a few days with the wife and my girls (the lad decided he'd stay home and dog mind). I spoke to my GP today and we've decided to increase my medication for a start and then see where we are in a month. Fingers crossed I'm on the right road! Happy New Year all.

    I really fucking appreciate that, mate. TBH, I was worried about the blog question and that one about the 'fat Tory cunt' because I didn't want it to be 'divisive' about any posters - all who make this a great place to hang out. I hope the fella in the other question appreciates it was meant to be wholesome/inclusive.

    The first game of the new year, and it’s taken on more significance that it had prior to the Leicester game. That damp squib has raised (or re-raised) many questions. We are nowhere near as bad as an England test batting line-up but we did a passable impression of Joe Root’s hapless Ashes XI by shitting down our own leg. That needs to be eradicated, pronto, as we will be without 2 of our 3 best attackers for the best part of a month after this game. What do we need? Grit. Heart. Organisation. Strength. Tactical flexibility. Give no quarter. Offensive cohesion. Ability. Luck. I don’t ask for much. We had all of that in abundance in May 1986. A squad that had looked second best to Everton until around March was now in a position where they could reclaim the league title at the expense of their neighbours. And there was still an FA Cup final to come against Howard Kendall’s men. But first there was the small matter of seeing the job through against a Chelsea team led by John Hollins, and with the prolific Kerry Dixon up front. See it through we most certainly did. Whelan miscued a shot from the edge of the area. It bounced off a Chelsea player back to the Irishman, who leapt to flick the ball on. Skippy was in attendance, volleying the ball over the back of the Chelsea defence to The King. He chested the ball down and smacked it past the goalkeeper. Now that we had the lead, it didn’t matter what Everton did in their match (they and Lineker were swatting Southampton aside at the Boo Camp) as long as we held on. Joyous scenes greeted the final whistle, and it’s one of my abiding memories of watching footage of that era, seeing Kenny sitting in the dressing room afterwards just taking it all in. His first season as player-manager and he was about to deliver the club’s first league and cup double. Incidentally, I always found Stamford Bridge to be a weird ground as the used the areas behind the goals as a car park. Normally you’d only see a vehicle near the playing surface at cavernous concrete bowls behind the Iron Curtain, and it was usually a police van with an officer stationed beside it holding an AK-47 in one hand, and a leash affixed to a rabid Alsatian who was going mental at the supporters behind a fence in the other. The surprise box office hit at the beginning of May 1986 was a fictional (or maybe semi-biographical) story called Jo Jo Dancer, Your Life Is Calling, starring the legendary Richard Pryor. It’s about a young man trying to make it as a stand-up comedian while snorting and freebasing shitloads of Colombian marching powder and shagging hewwers. So real-life then. It even includes a scene where his character burns himself while freebasing, which is something that happened to Pryor himself. I hadn’t even heard of this film until researching for this themed series of match Ops, but I am very familiar with some of his stand-up and his acting career. He was a crazy bastard but one of the funniest people around. A lot of the jokes from Live In Concert would not fly in this PC-woke word we live in today, but they are still incredibly funny. That story about the Chinese restaurant will bring you to tears! This is our last game before our African contingent fly out to Cameroon for the AFCON. Money is the only reason for holding it every 2 years. Shit, when several influential people are pushing for an even bigger money spinner in the World Cup to be held every 2 years, of course the continental federations like CAF are going to push for more regular international competitions on their continent. Jurgen has already had his say on the matter. We need to be avoiding the sloppiness that has characterised our play in a number of games this season. We need to be effective in the middle of the park, attacking and defending. We also need to be more ruthless in the final third. We can do it. We know we can do it. We just have to go out there and do it. A result at Stamford Bridge has previously led to great things for us. Make it so again.

    Has it not occurred to you that if the spike protein gets into the system, so would have covid-19 and it would have done a lot more damage? my brother in law said the same things. No vaccine for me, the media is making a bigger deal of it, the vaccine is a form of control and I’ll take my chances on my immune system. he’s been in a medically induced coma for 3 weeks with covid. Now off the meds, the gave him today an anaesthetic to numb the throat so they could take him off the ventilator. The anaesthetic led to a heart attack. They suspect the covid caused a stroke while in a coma and the anaesthetic doubled down on that. he’s stable again but at this moment he’s only alive due to the ventilator. perhaps if he’d had the vaccine he might be going through the same things or maybe not. We will never know.

    Dr Troy is a cunt because I had no idea he'd become Harry Squatter. He cost me two answers. I also pay little attention to much I read on here either.

    Magnificent work, Jennings. Plenty there to remind me that I actually enjoy coming to this place (in between being baffled or infuriated). I think we can all agree that Dr Troy is a twat for changing his name. Love yizz aal. Happy New Year.

    I've got the wild-shites and a migraine. Sat here sober as a judge. Still got my family around me and they're all happy - so that makes me happy. Although a gin or two would helped.

    Disgrace. This quiz was advertised as being ‘shit’. It was in fact; fun, interesting and something I hope becomes an annual fixture on the GF. @Jennings you are the biggest winner here (especially as I didn’t win the actual quiz). Thanks very much for putting this together.

    Hoovering earlier and the cord got a bit caught up as I was about to put it away so I gave it a firm flick and the plug reared up and walloped me in the gronckers.

    I blitzed through this in a couple of days after getting back to the UK this week. Absolutely brilliant. Nobody does this stuff better than the BBC. I found the way they spoke about each other was fascinating. So guarded, yet so revealing at the same time. Wearing their scars, both physically and in their expressions. Would love to see a follow up where they're actually in the room together going through this stuff. Say what you want about Blair, he's the only politician in this country in the last half century that fucking knew how to beat Tories which, of course, is what actually matters. Iraq, of course, clouds everything, but those 10 years he was in were actually pretty decent in this country, certainly compared to everything that came before and after. His legacy will never recover though. And rightly so. And he knows it. Brown seemed pretty philosophical about it all really. Level headed when he was handed an absolute handful of dogshit by his old mate who knew time was up and doom was imminent. Brown still dwarves any of his successors from an intellectual and political standpoint. Now there's no chance of a Labour win because of all the "centrist this, centrist that" from people who profess to want the tories out at all cost, failing to realise that you have to win at a national level. Then there's that wet blanket in charge now and the Tories seizing the working man's ground via the nationalist agenda. Could do with another pair like these coming through the ranks if anyone is actually serious about getting rid of the Tories beyond "the absolute boy" japes. *awaits shelling*
