    A bit of the context I mentioned earlier. This is my nearly-7-year-old son at half-time last night: At his age I wasn't half as into it as he is, what with the ubiquity of football coverage and the interest of his parents. Mine wouldn't know if a football was blown up or stuffed. I was 21 before I got to Anfield while he was only 6 when he got to the Arsenal game in the League Cup: It was only recently that the penny dropped with me that the scarf he is wearing has now been to Anfield around the neck of four generations of his family: his great-grandfather, his grandfather (including the Saint-Étienne game), his mother, and now him. It's been a wild 30 years. Here's hoping the next 30 for him are as much of a ride.

    Has to make you laugh reading online Twitter twats tell The John Barnes he's out of touch, or doesn't understand racism just because he disagrees. As if blackness is a hegemonic hive mind, that doesn't have Tories or isn't 4 years removed from an amazingly charismatic leader drone bombing weddings. It does not need reiterating on this forum, because we all know it, but I'm going to say it anyway. John walked into a club that did chant "Liverpool are white", had bananas hurled at him on live TV, and was consistently blamed for any national team failures on his "laziness". He was the best player in the world between 87-89, the best player in the best team this country has ever seen and was an absolute model in dignity, grace and his capacity to rise above the constant humiliation black folks suffered in an era when murdering Stephen Lawrence on the straight was a vaguely 50/50 call. The guy is a God. An absolute God. And is good natured on a level that almost beggars belief.

    Me too, the weather through May made it even better, I got to spend a lot more time with my son too who lives with my ex. I was genuinely upset when I got the phonecall asking me to go back and I realised that I'll never get to spend this much time with him ever again. Unless my ex carks it of course. Not that I've been thinking about that scenario.

    There's absolutely no way I will ever work full-time in an office again. This is going to be bit of a brain-dump but quite apart from this whole scenario, the last 12 months have been difficult for me mentally and physically and it's made me really start thinking about what I want from the second half of my life. It feels like society is on a precipice - Covid, UBI, technology, health, poverty, equality, BLM and so many other complex areas of humanity feel either broken or about to break. I think about it and it overwhelms me, so I need a way to cope! I just mentioned it in response to Neko's off-grid Canadian dream but I have a 10 year plan that I want to enact but the Covid situation may have brought it forward. I want to work less and spend more time in my garden growing crops and raising chickens, this has proven I can afford to. I want to spend more time at home with the wife and dog, in a combination of work and not. I may even want children! I can see a good short term scenario where I drop to a 4 day week and work 2 days from home. The flexibility and extra time that would give me would make such a huge difference to my wellbeing that it alone may be enough. But then the 10 year plan takes it further. I want to use my skills and contacts as an architect to build a small, zero carbon co-op living development for us, our elderly parents, siblings + families and maybe 2/3 others. It's utopian, it might happen, I may already have the land lined up. I genuinely feel like writing a 'manifesto'. Not for others but myself. Not eloquent or intended to stoke revolution but something to guide my life by. Ultimately it comes down to: - Work less - See family more - Get a second dog - Garden, grow food, enjoy the produce - Don't buy shit I don't need - Live a zero carbon life

    I've been on a wake for my mate, Roger, who died on Tuesday. Completely shit faced for the first time in Lockdown. It's what he would have wanted Godspeed wherever you are! He was a bad Tory and a worse Brexiter but everybody loved him and he'll be missed!!

    I find Brexiters and Brexit MPs telling us how important the economy is to be a bit galling. Especially people who declared they'd take decades of hardship for freedom. The Freedom to be run for 5 years by people who have done nothing but lie and act disgracefully from the start. Who jeopardised everyone's safety for herd immunity and then shit all over the protections in place to protect a government advisor, a civil servant who got to hold his own fucking press conference! And with that massive privilege proceeded to make incredibly ridiculous lies up, basically a giant "fuck you, who do you think you are" and still was defended by the single minded lunacy of "it doesn't matter as long as brexit" any behaviour is now acceptable. Reports have said in general you can tell who thinks the government have done a good or bad job by following brexit lines. They have fucked up almost every single step of the way. A real low is saying they would hit 100,000 tests by a certain date and in order to hit it.. just to save face! sent out 40,000 useless wasted tests on one day, tick the box and go back to failing and eventually not even bothering to report about it. Mistakes are fine, missing targets fine, even failing is fine but to fucking waste time, money and jeopardize lives to protect your party PR is criminal. Move on.. Move on.. and we all moved on. They do not give a fuck beyond their own power and how much they are going to make. Boris and Cummings are going to absolutely carve the country up for US business. They will sell us shit as gravy and every brexiter will gorge upon it convincing themselves it tastes good and they've never had better. I'm not against people voting for brexit, I'm against it being so important that any behaviour no matter how bad is allowed from MPS as long as they're Brexiters. Brexit won it's going to happen so we need to get our own shit in order and we can only do that by holding our politicians to account. I know blind loyalty isn't just a brexit issue it applies to all sides. But at the minute Brexit is allowing these current Tories to act like they're untouchable, it's dangerous.

    I loved that game. Get the fuck in. 7 months sober - last bender started at Palace away on 23/11. Who’d have thought then that I wouldn’t be able to raise a glass to lifting the curse? But I lifted more than my fair share over the years. Pretty emotional after that.

    Tell you what covid has done to this country as well, it's shown how precarious our economy is. Firstly, it's exposed the fat fucking lie that being an 'entrepreneur' or small business owner is a workable source of employment for most people. "Oooh who wants to work for the man, follow your dreams!" Yeah look out the window, three months in and most of them are broke and suicidal. Aye, it's unprecedented times and all that jazz, but hardly anyone has/had any savings at all, or safety net, just living hand to mouth and bashing out a desperate laugh everytime someone said "oooh I bet it's great working for yourself!" A lot of people ended up working for themselves because there's no jobs or the jobs are brutal or shit. This was the Tory dream, wean you off the public sector job nipple, go forth and start the next facebook! When in actual fact they were making Cadburys wispa hampers and selling them on Facebook for slightly less than minimum wage. Imagine saying to someone 20 years ago who worked for the council and were pulling in 30k a year, getting a pension and early darts on Friday that one day people would aspire to sit in their fucking shed all day making blag Yankee candles. Number two is how reliant we are on retail. The shops close and the economy is fucked, race is on to get shops open and headlines encourage us to "shop for britain". Where once the furnace of industry consisted of factories, science and shipbuilding, now it boils down to how many people pile into Topshop, with most of the profits being siphoned off to some Monaco bank account while the staff pull in just enough money to spend on even more shite in the shop next door. The termites of neoliberalism didn't even do us the common courtesy of leaving the floorboards.

    I’ve said this before so many times on here. So people are depressed, suicides are up, people are not getting NHS referrals, irreversible damage is being done to pupils education etc... and all of that is given as reasons to lift lockdown measures. It’s a compelling argument. However, if cases do spike again, we get a second wave or however you want to say it, what do you think will happen with all those things? Are people going to be getting cancer referrals if the NHS is overwhelmed? Do you think depression and suicides will go up or down if people are dropping like flies? Pupils more or less likely to get the education they need with the school closures extended? Let’s not pretend this is anything other than a very high stakes gamble. If we get a second spike that coincides with the winter and flu season we will be absolutely fucked. They won’t lockdown and furlough people again so what is the alternative? They should have kept the lockdown until the end of June/middle of July and drove cases right down and got an extensive track and trace system up and running in time for relaxing it. Instead, they’ve half arsed the whole thing, lost the public trust with Cummings, and in my opinion gambled that they can keep cases around the level they are now so we’ll still get plenty of deaths and infections but it won’t overwhelm the NHS. It’s also obvious they’re not going to protect the vulnerable like they should be with allowing the shielded to leave their homes earlier than they said and not releasing the full BAME report. We’re also seeing the scientists sidelined at the press conferences because they either won’t back what they want or they’ve given mild criticism like JVT and the imminent reduction of the 2m rule based on pressure from business lobby groups, right wing media and backbench Tories rather than on the scientific advice. I’d just be careful what you wish for because all the problems which are given as reasons for lifting lockdown (NHS referrals, Suicides, Schools etc...) are going to be massively amplified if this doesn’t work.

    They are just a bunch of faux outrage melodramatic drama queen sanctimonious twats. If it was anyone else at the top of the league they would not give a flying fuck. They act like it's a national tragedy if the remaining league games get played and screech like a set of fucking banshees because they aren't getting what they want. They've loved it for years that we havent won the league and now that's going to hopefully disappear in the next few weeks. They can't handle that the one thing they had left will be gone soon. They've been the biggest whineist set of cunts in the country over the null and void argument and hiding behind a global pandemic with fake concern over people's lives to suit their own sad little pathetic agenda. Even the Mancs and other sets of fans have let it go. But not them, no, they still have to go on about it to the point that it is affecting their mental wellbeing. If I hated something that much I'd seek professional help. Now they are using the fans not being there, conspiracy to give Liverpool the title or an asterisk title as a coping mechanism for the depression that they will feel. No wonder their ground is called the Old Lady as they just act like a bunch of bitter old bitches who still hold a grudge for things that happened years ago. What other fan base would still whinge on about Clive Thomas 43 years ago or come up with a mad conspiracy about Collina being told not to allow Everton into the Champions League. Every single bit of misfortune that befalls them is always a conspiracy or because Liverpool pay off refs, have tons of luck or take drugs that never get detected. Maybe if their club wasn't fucking shite they wouldn't have to lower themselves to wearing Real Madrid tops in the pub and celebrating a Liverpool loss like them winning a trophy.

    Like all of us on here and no doubt all Reds, this means the world and it is quite hard to put it into words.... I was 18 the last time we won it and if you would have told me then that we wouldn't win it again for another 30 years I simply would not have believed you. I used to go pretty much every week back then, home and away - but i actually missed the game where we clinched it at home to QPR on the Saturday, but I was there (just) to see us presented with it after playing Derby on the Tuesday after - Dalglish's last appearance for us and Hansen coming out and doing a 'John Terry' to receive the trophy 20 years ahead of that prick! It felt good winning it that year after the heartbreak of what happened the year before. Of course since then in the 30 years that have followed we have known plenty more heartbreak - none worse than 2014 when for the first time really since 1990 it felt to me as if it was finally going to be ours again - only for our captain and one of the greatest of all time to suffer what he suffered and we just couldn't recover from that could we.....i have never felt lower about a football result than that day. The scars remain and have left a mark on all of us i think. I remember going away to Norwich that season and in the concourse at half time the songs of 'we're gonna win the league' and 'we're gonna win the football league again' were sang as loud and with more belief than i had ever heard them in my adult life.... All the years watching those fucking mancs dominate, winning title after title - us being also rans/putting in the odd challenge like 08/09 when somehow we managed to only lose twice all season, do the double over the team who won it and the team who finished 3rd but still it never really felt like we would win it. Last season of course - fucking hell, 1 loss, 97 pts - a higher total than any title winning side in history bar the one that beat us that year and their centurions one....you could not be blamed for thinking it is just not meant to be. But this side hauled themselves up won number 6 and then this season have put together the most incredible run - truly unseen......only for a fucking Pandemic to sweep the globe, you couldn't write it......the world stopped still, football a part of it.....of course peoples lives and health are more important than football, but fucking hell nobody could be blamed for cursing our fucking luck here, is it about to be taken away from us or at best handed to us in a meeting, when it was so close and so close in such incredible fashion. The game has come back, albeit in an altered state in an altered world and 30 years of watching us be unable to crack this pinnacle, watching the mancs dominate , watching chelsea's money buy titles, watching Man City cheat to titles, watching Leicester fucking City and Blackburn fucking Rovers scale the mountain - is about to come to a glorious end. The scenes that would have accompanied it are sadly not going to be enjoyed and seen, but the achievement remains undiminished... the release, the pride, the joy, the shoving the taunts back down the rests throats are all going to feel great, more than fucking great. The giant 30 year monkey is finally being thrown off our back, the doubt, the angst, the nervousness, the feeling we are cursed - all gone. I'll shed tears when it happens and i have no problem at all admitting that, i can only imagine most Reds will be the same. Liverpool Football Club - Champions. Feels fucking good! LIVERPOOL FOOTBALL CLUB - CHAMPIONS A liverbird upon my chest We are men of Shankly's best A team that plays the Liverpool Way And wins the Championship in May (or June or July)
