  3. Monday Feb 12: Reports today say Postecoglu won't be joining us at the end of the season. In other news, I can confirm that I won't be taking up a membership at Augusta National. Seriously, how the fuck is he even being linked with the job? Because he's a fan? So are all of you reading this and you won't be getting the job either. Ok, I'm being flippant as he's clearly got something about him, but that's not anywhere near enough to be qualified for this job. If we appointed him I'd be fucking livid. I don't care for that guy. I've been watching loads of tactical analysis videos of Alonso's Leverkusen and I'm all in on this. I was even before I'd seen all the tactical stuff, but that was based on the fact he's Xabi Alonso, he's top of the Bundesliga and he's taken a team from 2nd bottom to being unbeaten in all comps this season. I knew very little about how he'd done it. Now that I've seen what he's actually doing, fucking hell. It's proper high end, ahead of the game shit. He's not unbeaten because he's got the best players, it's because he's got the best tactics and motivational skills. Some of his key players were free transfers like Xhaka and Grimaldo. He's got another lad who was at Southampton and Burnley and pulled up no trees. He hasn't done this by buying boss players, he's done it by coaching. There was another team that took it to Bayern Munich in similar fashion in recent times. You might be familiar with their manager.... This is the biggest no brainer decision any club could ever make. Don't overthink it, this is just so obvious. Of course there's risk involved and none of us can know how it would turn out, but there's risk with any appointment as there are never any guarantees. You just have to make the decision that gives you the best chance of success, that's all you can do. And if it doesn't work, there's no regrets because you made what was the best decision you could have made at that time with all of the information available to you. It's almost like the NFL draft in some ways. The Bears have the number one pick this year and there are a lot of arguments going on about what they should do. There's a quarterback available who is being touted as a generational talent and half the teams in the league would kill to get him. He might turn out to be a flop, but if you don't take him you'll always be kicking yourself in case he becomes what the experts are saying he could be. We're in that unique situation this summer. We've basically got the number one pick in the draft as we're in a position where we can choose ANY manager we want (nobody is turning down this job, it's the most attractive available job in the world other than maybe Real Madrid, but I just don't see Xabi wanting to join them over us at this point in his career). Alonso is the clear stand out star of the draft, yet you've got people suggesting we pass on him and take De Zerbi, the Sporting fella or even Eddie fucking Howe (ok, that was Agbonlahor who said that so it doesn't count). If we took anybody else other than Alonso the risk would be much bigger than giving it to him and it's a decision we might live to regret forever. Like when the Bears traded up to draft Mitch Trubisky instead of Patrick Mahomes. It takes years to recover from mistakes like that.

  8. And they all met at the San Siro in the Round of 16 when the Germans took on the Dutch. West Germany had looked like one of the 2 best sides in the competition (the other being the host nation), and the Dutch looked a shadow of the side of 2 years earlier. Van Basten failed to score in his only World Cup tournament. Gullit did manage one goal against Ireland but was largely shackled (he'd had a few knee issues over the previous couple of seasons). Rijkaard hadn't been his dominant self, and his most memorable moment was gobbing in Voller's perm not once but twice. In contrast, Matthaus was the best player in the tournament, Klinsmann was on fire and Brehme was hugely productive in both assisting as well as scoring goals. Brehme scored the winning goal against the Dutch, got a goal against England in the semi final (thanks to a wicked deflection and Shilton's concrete boots), and of course the winning goal in the final. Incredible to think that the 1990 World Cup winning coach and the player that got the important goal have both passed on within months of each other.

Beautiful 20 year old serving " are you the girl that gives the wanks for a pound?" he says with a quid in his hand " I am indeed" " well wash your hands and give me two meat and potato pies "

Anthony Hopkins is stellar and Lena Olin (despite my reservations about her casting) excellent. 8.5/10 for the film, 10/10 for the story. Heartbreaking and wonderful.

  19. Okay, well you can have a quick "fuck you" on the last comment and let's move on. There's no confirmation of how they were injured at all. Even the evidence we're presented with doesn't show what we're told it shows. It's an anecdotal story with questionable presentation. Also not sure who said it was brave either, but I left that bit. I'm not comfortable with any school kids being given free reign to hurt other kids for under the excuse of sport and, as I said, it's part of the reason why there are referees. I explicitly mentioned that I'm not fully comfortable with trans athletes in some settings, but don't know the full situation here so can't say for sure. I am not sure if this is an unfortunate situation being politicised or a rabid abuser being given licence to attack girls, as it has been presented. No one is in favour of the latter, but it should be said that there are also plenty of hallmarks that this may be the former so, in summary, stick your sanctimony up your arse.

  25. . I’m an arl arse in my late 60s and I am shit scared of having a fall and breaking my hip. So many old people go into hospital for that injury and die from complications. The only answer for me is plenty of walking and strength training at gym- lots of compound exercises.

  28. Went for a Health Check last week and while my cholesterol etc numbers were ok,my weight and family history put me in an increased risk zone of heart disease. I go to the gym 3 times a week,almost all aerobic stuff and referee kids footy when able (due to appalling weather since October I've only reffed 6 or 7 games since.) My weight is now 17st 2lb (this shocker me tbh) although I don't look fat,more stocky, I obviously needed to take action and that is what I am trying to do. Medication for IBS and Bladder pain problems don't help my cause but I am trying to get into a better frame of mind. I don't aim for a target weight but I am aiming for a point where I feel 'lighter' and more energetic most of the time. No,I'm not starting on Cocaine thanks! Got to back in three months time for re-testing as I am refusing to get on the recommendation of statins,so far. The biggest challenge is a small family budget so eating more healthy is not as easy as it should be due to cost. Bastard Tories and their corporate friends.

  30. A big win that looks to have come at something of a cost. The Reds made a tricky fixture look easy but lost three players to injury and at least one of them looks to be very serious, but Salah was back with a goal and we're still top of the league. Chris Smith is joined by Ian Brown and TLW Editor Dave Usher to pick the bones out of an eventful game down in West London in which Nunez showed his finishing prowess, Salah returned in style, Cody bagged himself a goal and Macca chipped in with a lovely strike.

  38. A bloke I used to work with reckoned he had played for Liverpool and Everton and he'd won an Oscar. He played cornet in the Post Office brass band and they had, indeed, played pre-match at Anfield and Goodison. They also played the national anthems during the filming of Chariots of Fire at Bebington Oval, so he was claiming his share of the awards that the soundtrack won.
