  1. They bought our club on the cheap knowing fuck all about football, appointed an incompetent amateur to run the club's operations while remaining detached and disinterested thousands of miles away, haven't invested any of their own money into the playing squad, have made no progress with the stadium, hung our manager, players and fans out to dry after they were fucked over by a corrupt FA and then set upon by a shithouse media, and then forced them into a humiliating and unnecessary grovelling apology to our most hated rival who orchestrated the whole fucking thing, all to protect their corporate image. Now, to cap it all off, they sack a club legend and proven winner after one season of underachievement in the league and our first trophy in six years. Not even the chance to have another year on a limited budget, selling to buy, getting more out of the players already there, taking a punt on loans and Bosmans. Just gone. FSG have done fuck all to prove they're worthy custodians of Liverpool Football Club, and plenty to suggest they're not. Buying the club with their own money and letting the manager spend the money the club earns on players is a minimum requirement, not something to be congratulated for. A proven quality manager, a big budget for the summer and qualification for the Champions League – if we don't get all of these next season they need to be fucked off. It will be timely and perfectly legitimate to start a campaign to oust them. "But we can't do that, they haven't been here long, you've got to give them time, they've got a plan, they're professionals, you've got to trust them, we can't have yet more upheaval." Well guess what. What's sauce for the goose is sauce for the gander. If Kenny Dalglish can be judged a failure and sent packing after 18 months, FSG can be after 2 and a half years. The clock's ticking. Even if things do work out, I will never them forgive them for this. If there's one person who deserves a chance to correct his mistakes and have another shot at glory with us, it’s Kenny Dalglish. He is the club's greatest living servant, FSG are a bunch of fucking snidey chancers who'd probably never even heard of Liverpool Football Club two years ago. Who the fuck do they think they are to shit on him like this, not once but twice. Cunts. Fuck them.

    RIP Gazelle

    She was a regular in 2006 when I started posting.

    Greatest 90's Movies - Semi Final A

    LA Confidential. Call me old fashioned but I like a film’s main protagonist to be a sympathetic character that I can root for. Neither Pulp Fiction nor Goodfellas has that, which is why despite their technical brilliance they both leave me cold. The winner will walk the final of course.

    Greatest 90s Movie Ever - Group B

    Ditto. Exhilarating, thought provoking, ground breaking. And all the more exciting as it wasn’t given a massive publicity buildup, it almost snuck in under the radar. All the hype that summer was about the Phantom Menace.

    Greatest 90s Movie Ever - Group A

    Same. Still voted for it here though, along with Reservoir Dogs - certainly not the strongest group we’ll see in this competition. Goodfellas nailed on to win the whole thing imo.

    Are we talking about A Matter of Life and Death? If so that’s a completely different premise. Niven’s character all along understands that he was supposed to have died, and the film is all about how he and others respond to it. In Jacob’s Ladder we don’t find out what’s happened until the very end.
  12. It’s not Star Wars with more gore, it’s got great performances and a really strong character-driven story. Weaver was nominated for an Oscar.
  13. Cheers, never occurred to me to try that.
  14. How do you see who’s voted for each option in a poll? Never been able to work it out since the forum was last upgraded.

    Should Corbyn remain as Labour leader?

    Those unintentional inaccuracies just keep on coming. Talk about bad luck!

    Should Corbyn remain as Labour leader?

    Just to confirm, then, criticising the Jewish Chronicle for consistently producing verifiably inaccurate and misleading journalism constitutes an attack on the Jewish community and is therefore antisemitic. Is that right? Just so we’re clear what the parameters of the debate are here.

    Group E? I’ve shit ‘em.

    Greatest 80s Movie - Group D

    Yes. It’s an absolute masterclass in building suspense and interspersing with action in just the right places, leading up to imo the greatest 1 v 1 showdown ever committed to screen. The combination of cinematography, effects, music and set pieces is flawless. Sure the dialogue and acting are hammy as fuck, but to get hung up on that is kind of missing the point of the film.

    Not a strong group? There are at least five bona fide classics of their respective genres here.

    Greatest 80s Movie - Group B

    Much more competition from the sci-fi and action genres in this decade. Empire will have a tougher time of it than Star Wars did.

    Close Encounters isn’t suitable for younger kids either. The abduction scene scared the shit out of me the first time I saw it.
