  1. Man, been treated to a couple of treats tonight. Casino and Taxi Driver. Jodie Foster is so awesome in this movie. She somehow manages to stand out amid one of the greatest character studies of all time.

    Let us not forget "John Arne Riise, I wanna know how you broke his leg..." 3/4 of the Kop were singing that that day. Glass houses n' all that.

    Thing is, overall I thought this was more like the old Mane. Even when he was properly firing he'd have these games where he played really well and miss a bunch of chances. His overall play was really good, I thought. He looked really sharp, moved the ball well, his movement was good, he looked right at it. He was a bit more decisive. There was less of what we saw last season where he would tiredly just try and keep hold of the ball before getting easily tackled. Overall, I think it's a net positive despite the missed chances. I feel better about the possibility of him recapturing his better form after this.

    The man can duck a shoe like Muhammad Ali ducked a Foreman haymaker, to be fair to him. Float like a butterfly, sting like a fucking relentless missile attack into densely populated civilian areas.

    Coronavirus

    Was just gonna say, is this "the new normal" now? A thousand people a week curling their toes? Do we have any data on the profile of these people yet?

    Sorry, you did say exactly that too and I skipped over.

    I was quite au fait with that because I studied Michael Moore a lot in uni and did my dissertation on him. Moore ripped him for his inactivity there, but the documentary gave me a new take on it. You could see it become the reality in his mind and it was etched all over his face, each slight shift. Incredible portrait and we'll probably never see anything like that again where a global leader has a camera on his face for 10 minutes after finding out everything was about to change.

    It's phenomenal that. The range of interviews they were able to get in was remarkable. True credit to the pull and credibility of the BBC. Bush, Rove, Cheney, Rice, Powell, staffers, secret service, press people, reporters, the fucking Commander of Air Force One. Absolutely unreal scope and insight and the composition what phenomenal. I thought it presented Bush quite favourably, which, on that day and in the immediate aftermath, was probably merited. However, what came after is obviously a different story.
  14. No more Red Bulls. Those bastards see us coming a mile off with their 'bargain' buy out clauses. Like the Mac & Dennis Buy A Timeshare episode of It's Always Sunny. We got got! Red Bull gives you Mings.
  15. Remember when they just didn't send the papers for the de Gea to Real Madrid transfer and blamed a fax machine? In 2015!

    Harvey Elliott

    He wasn't until he left to represent those England meffs. Nowt to do with us.
  17. Use of language is becoming increasingly infuriating to me. People talking about something being “a vibe” Fucking women and their insistence on tagging “Sunday Funday” whenever they’re doing anything except sat on their fat fucking arses all day. Likewise with the term OutOut to describe one of their shitty fucking nights out where they drink Prosecco and cackle at each other.

    Anyone who gives enough of a shit to watch this, how’s Trent done in midfield?

    Gareth Southgate

    I think he can. The FA aren't chasing shooting for glory anymore, as they did with the Sven and Capello appointments. They want stability, respectability and relative consistency. He provides all of those things. Media pressure has also eased significantly. He never really got any beef for blowing a WC semi final and EC final because he couldn't get out of his own way. Plus I think this is the limit of his personal ambition.

    It really wouldn't surprise me if he managed England for the next 20 years.

    Gareth Southgate

    I also think it's really beneficial to him that less English players are coming through at the top clubs, so there aren't Liverpool, Chelsea and Man United factions to deal with. There's a good spread of teams represented in that squad and, aside from Kane, no real giant egos to handle. He's made it a really harmonious place to be and it's clear the players love it. For the longest time everything around the England team was toxic and a real weight for the top players like Gerrard, Carra, Lampard, Rooney, etc.

    Gareth Southgate

    He's perfect for England. No surprise really because the FA were grooming him for the job for about ten years, but he's ideal. Will never rock the boat, will always be over-performing expectations, will keep the players happy, loved by the media. Great at beating shit teams so no more humiliating losses. A sympathetic figure when they get beat, as they always will when they come up against anyone good. He's also probably the only England manager since Robson and Venables that has actually benefitted the players in his teams. The likes of Rice, Saka and Philips have all flourished under him. Think @RedKnight said it best in the summer. He's figured out the formula for international tournament footy is about not losing games first and foremost. Awful to watch, but effective.

    I know, I still can't believe we couldn't beat Boavista

    Where were you when they built the ladder to heaven? Did it make you feel like cryin' or did you think it was kinda gay?
