  2. Another pretty shitty weekend really but it never feels as bad when we win, so at least there’s that. Wasn’t great in terms of other results though, but I think we need to get used to that as it’s going to be like this most of the time now. The Blues lost but that was the most nailed on result of the decade. City are going for a title, nothing takes priority over that if you’re a Blue, not even the looming prospect of relegation and possible end of days. As long as the Redshite aren’t winning titles. Ok, it’s a little more complex than that these days since Everton were caught cheating. All of a sudden, they’ve gone from revelling in City’s financial doping to pointing and screaming “look at them, they’re cheating too, why are we getting punished?”. Ask Evertonians if they want their ten points back but the condition is that City get the deduction instead and let’s see how they vote on that. Would be interesting. They kept it tight for a while at the Etihad but at no point did I allow myself to hope. I wasn’t even paying any attention to it until John started running his mouth outside the chippy about how “City haven’t had a shot on target yet”. The rest of us all looked at him like he’d just announced that he’d voted Tory. “Why the fuck would you say that you jinxing cunt?” Less than a minute had passed before he’s holding his hands up and accepting blame. It finished 2-0 with the blobfish getting both of them. There is no punishment severe enough to deal with these cunts.

  3. To get my son off his screen we made a bee hotel then put it up on the allotment. A nice couple of hours just the 2 of us. I let him use the circular saw as Mrs Willard is out all day.

  5. We need a manager who can organise and get the best out of the players as a team. And just as importantly, isn't wedded to one way of playing. Dogma introduces artificial constraint, and shouldn't ever get a look in. Klopp is not dogmatic; he has principles, but he retains flexibility in his approach - all this 'heavy metal football' nonsense is shallow-minded pap.

  10. I've been through this with other posters before but I want them to lose every game, regardless of the circumstances. I don't do pragmatism when it comes to that lot.

  11. The Celebration at Arsenal is an interesting one for me, Same would be at the Emptihad or Bald Trafford... Worth Reflecting.... We revere our Managers, more than the Players really. We value our History, Elisha Scott, Billy Liddell but this is why managers celebrating in from of the Kop with salutes, adoration or fist pumps. History. If you look broadly at our success, winning and runners up, whilst the latter can be heartbreaking, there is always the thrill of the chase in the League and the Cups. If we ignore the one offs and charity games and focus on the "We can win 3 domestic and 1 Europe 4 This season" Looking at Wins and Runner Ups over the years... Shanks - 10 in 12 seasons (once we were in Divn 1 1962/1963 ) Bob - 17 in 9 Seasons Joe - 5 in 2 seasons Kenny - 9 in 5 full seasons (No European footy) 15 to go for won or close on 9... 41 trophies and RU in 28 seasons, 4 different managers. Then the "Dark Days", Hope Springing eternal, these times for many clubs would be their Golden Era 25 years, 7 managers 9 Wins 8 Runners Up, - 17 Wins close shaves in 25 years, most clubs would love that. Along comes Jurgen 10 in 8 seasons, robbed of many by you know who. Rebuilt our belief...our Bastion of Invincibility. Success for us is winning silverware, but on some of those oh so near ones, still had a great time, great moments (Kiev CL final was one such trip) No other club has had 5 managers that have brought such happiness to us 51 wins or close shaves, finals etc in 36 seasons. add in our fallow years that's 68 titles, cup finals, runners up chases... in 61 years (my lifetime) NO other club can boast that few managers and that level of success, that is why we cherish all our managers and why the fans and the manager are bonded together. US v the rest. Others imitate which is the sincerest form of Flattery.

  12. And this Cinderella tale of riches to riches leads to him buying twenty flats, off plan, and renting them out above market rate helping keep the rental market red hot, whilst also reducing access to first time buyers. Brings a tear to the eye to see someone come from everything to have everything and actively work against the interests of the vast majority.

  13. She got the dog a teddy bear for Valentines day for a laugh. He seemed to like it but attacked it usual dog stuff. Didn't pay the thing any attention and spent 5 hours in the back of the car with it blanking it. Last night we're watching a film and he decides to drag it into the bedroom, I jokingly said he's gonna bang it. Next thing he's trying to get it on the bed so I take it off him to help him and he gets excited, runs in the living room and his tail smashes my birds Prosecco glass off the coffee table. I'm picking up glass and she calls me into the bedroom horrified. He'd only jumped on the bed, turned it on it's front and started goosing it right in-front of her. He's never humped anything ever. We took him the vets months back for his jabs and he said don't get his balls chopped off unless he's humping stuff, so we haven't. We should have guessed what was coming from the way he looked at it hours earlier.... Im gonna bin it today, nip it in the bud but he can’t see me do it or he’ll forever blame me for killing his one true love “Valentina”

  14. You horrible bastard. She has nothing but joy in her life finding me silly jobs to do. To be fair, she's stepped up this week. It's my 40th on Saturday so she's surprised me with a little trip to the New Forest followed by 5 days in Southsea seeing my mates down there. Currently in a little cottage near Lymington in the middle of the woods. She might kill me here who knows. But it's lovely. She's the least bitter blue I know. Loves them but she's not arsed about the hate stuff. Odd snide comment and knife across the throat threat here and there but that's quite timid eh Only downside so far is we caught the dog goosing his valentines teddy bear last night. She's in a state of shock.

  16. I wouldn't mind if he kept it clean, and at least got trimmed (just to get rid of the dead hair), but he's a scruffy lazy (admittedly autistic) hippy. He moults more than the dog.

  17. Sounds the opposite of what happened to my mate. He meets this bird, when pissed. Agrees go on a date.sees her and she's fatter than be remembered. Gets pissed with her and thinks fuck it.when she takes her clothes off he realises he can't. She then locks him in her house and won't let him leave. For some reason rather than just kicking off he ran upstairs wrapped himself in all her towels and threaten jump out an upstairs window. She let him out then

  18. That's just not true though. Klopp is not dogmatic at all. Sean Dyche is dogmatic, Klopp has a bit of pragmatism about him. The way we play now is different to how we played when Klopp first got here. You evolve, do things differently, add bits here and there depending on the players you have and their strengths and weaknesses. You don't just go "this is what I do, if you don't fit then I don't care that you're world class, you can fuck off"

  24. Russia have already lost the war. Even if Ukraine cede land to them, with its ruined buildings, Russia's reputation as a capable military force is shattered for good. Putin is forever isolated, the oligarchs are persona non grata in the West. Ukraine has lost troops, civilians, villages, Russia has lost ships, generals, admirals. Their top mercenary tried to start a coup and was offed.

  25. There’s not much you can sow in February apart from broad beans & garlic/shallots but you can sow seeds indoors to raise seedlings for planting out in the spring but very few seeds will germinate outdoors if sown now. You can start chitting your seed potatoes indoors ready for planting out in March but generally the soil is still too cold for anything else. Patience my friend, end of March early April is the best time to get started

  27. Come back to this mate as I mentioned in a later post that I would try this place out when I next go Llandegla mountain bike centre. I went the other day on way home and must say, it's a great shop, bought a load of cornish pastys, sausage rolls and some thick pork sausages that were simply awesome. I also bought one of the steak pies and me and my sons shared it last night for tea. My word it was epic, to get nods and groans of approval from that pair Sat's it all. The chicken wings they do in various flavours also look lovely so they're on my list for next time as I will definitely be back anytime I'm out that way. I thank you.

  30. Klopp is the most attacking manager in the league. If you can't see that there is no hope. Klopp's whole philosophy is we will make more chances than you. Guardiola's is we will give up less chances than you. It's exactly the reason we are a brilliant watch and a City game is boring as fuck.

  33. I love the way they say "don't talk footy to Kopites as you can't get any sense out of them". Yet if you argue even reasonably without being abusive to them on social media they just block you. In person they just repeat their rehearsed lines over and over and ignore basic facts to suit their own agenda.

  39. He wasn't limited at all. He played a role for the club and played it extremely well. Limited players don't often Captain their club for years and lift trophies regularly. He was a very good player and far better than a lot of people give him credit for.

  41. Lack of self awareness from Robbie again. The fact he thinks the only thing Michael had over him is pace explains why he never had the career he should have. How about professionalism, dedication, single mindedness to be the absolute best and to squeeze out every last drop of talent? Fowler had much more talent than Owen (and pretty much anybody else I can think of for that matter, he was a genius), but only one of them won a Balon d'Or and shone on the world stage. If Robbie had the same professionalism and determination to be the absolute best that Michael had then there'd have been nobody to touch him, he'd have been the greatest. Unfortunately he chose to be out in town every weekend. Not that you'll ever hear him acknowledge that.
