    Blues/Jazz/Folk Etc Music thread

    These guys are so good, also, is the cello the most under-rated instrument?

    Songs that mention writers or books

    Not a fan of Sting but his first solo album is okay this one is based on "Interview with a Vampire" by Anne Rice.
  3. Fabinho was dreadful. Virgil recovered brilliantly after a bad start.

    Who is your guitar hero?

    Knopfler, Allman etc are amazing but Dave Rawlings is so distinctive too.

    Welcome To Liverpool Fabio Carvalho...

    A lot of debate as to what position he'll play but watching that youtube it's a very similar highlight reel to Keitas Leipzig one before he joined us. Low centre of gravity, beats players through midfield with great balance.

    Man City - the new bitters?

    Taylor was in charge when Kompany two-footed Salah a couple of years ago , the city fans even sing about that one. Everyone knows there's an issue between Klopp and Tierney I really hoped it was going to be Oliver.

    The GF book thread

    I just finished "Never" by Ken Follett, I was a big fan of his older spy novels like Eye of the Needle but this one is dreadful. It was a recommendation from Stephen King on Twitter, the last 150 or so pages are okay and there is a section set in North Africa which is okay too but mostly 800 pages of embarrassment.
  9. It's amazing the way the crowd start off restless and then silence descends.

    Liverpool Women’s FC

    From Twitter today, Klopp nails it again. "Jurgen Klopp on Liverpool women: "Congratulations! I sent messages. I was really happy, following the results all the time. I'm really happy for the girls & for Matt [Beard]. I met a lot of the girls in the last two or three months. It's really nice, a wonderful team." "It's a big thing. Obviously Liverpool in the last years was not famous for treating or dealing with women's football outstandingly well... But now they are back we have to make sure we use the situation.

    A really strong fish, fought for about 10 minutes - someone introduced crayfish into a particular section of the river so the fish have grown big and fat feasting on these. I live right beside Lough Corrib in the west of Ireland which is one of the best around for trout fishing but I always prefer the river.

    This was my best fish on the fly, a 5lb brown trout from the Robe River, 2 years ago.

    Rate the last film you watched...

    "Blinded by the light" on BBC4 last week, I loved it. Obviously I'm biased being a big Springsteen fan and exactly the same age as the main guy. I also spent a couple of weeks in Luton in 1980 at a family wedding and heard the P word for the first time. As I came from a very sheltered rural Ireland area, it was scary to see some of the racism, especially from my cousins family. The 80s were a bit shit and Thatcher was to blame for so much.

    Youth Team/Cup

    What's the deal with Balagazi? Looks like he has loads of talent and he's massive but was left out today.

    Youth Team/Cup

    It seems to be the same every year with this UEFA Youth League, we get to the latter stages and are missing loads of our top players - Musialowski, Harvey Blair etc today - we were toothless upfront. I liked Mabaya on the right, looks like he has pace and power.

    Other Football 2021/22

    Weird that they had Sterling and Jesus on the bench and never made a substitution.
