    You’re missing the joke. All those Norwegian tourists paid well over the odds to evertonians that bought up season tickets and sell off each game at twice their total annual outlay!

    little things that annoy the shit out of you

    Reminds me of a time many moons ago when I had travelled up look at possible student houses with my missus for when I started my masters. My phone battery died but was waiting for a call from the house I liked most so put my sim in my other half’s phone. we’re driving about when a text comes through, and instinctively she picks up her phone to look at it. It’s my mate planning a visit to a strip club we nicknamed Titty City and asking if I’m in. ”what’s Titty City?” She said icily. and why does it say “again” she added. She didn’t buy my bluffed reply.

    little things that annoy the shit out of you

    Twitter trends. I don’t follow many People on Twitter and almost never post but I like popping on there to keep up with the fee select bits I’ve got in the timeline. Mostly nfl the odd bit of politics/news and now covid stats stuff. That’s all. yet somehow even with that limited interaction I get inundated with these fucking things. A month or so ago it was “this is how it started, this is how it’s going” which was mostly people bragging about their current amazing lives. now it’s “what feels like x but isn’t x” we’re people post a meme or a photo or some other inane response. just fuck off with it you boring repetitive bastards.

    Mohamed Salah

    I the one way it’s very different is that you’re mixing players and staff that aren’t normally together from all over the place. CL matches there’s obviously increased risk than training and staying at home, but it’s not too different than any other away match as the teams travel on private charters and likely have a hotel to themselves at the moment id imagine. That’s not the case with international teams, with players from all over the world joining up and playing against others from all over the world.

    https://www.grandoldteam.com/forum/threads/echo-comment-fears-of-witch-hunt-against-liverpool-fc-part-3.107670/post-8267454 I think catcher in the rye fears for us, I think he really does. there’s not an element of our club he’s not a bona fide expert on, but this is super. catcherintherye Player Valuation: £70m Forum Supporter Yesterday at 10:23 PM New Add bookmark #28,603 I think a couple of things happened for them and it's been a bit of a perfect storm. Firstly nobody wanted Mane in summer 19. Madrid wouldn't go beyond 70m. They wanted in excess of 100, it got laughed off. The crisis then happened, and they were in essence the traderleft with too much stock in a brutal recession. Loads of players, on long term deals who now will not only not gain much value, but actually you struggle to get rid of them. It killed the market for Wilson, Shaqiri, Origi, Grugic, Brewster, Chamberlain, Karius etc. There are more but I'm a bit too ill tonight to think of them. In most cases they are left loaning them out, and only getting some of their wages met. Not big fees as they hoped. I think they had hoped for fans to be back by now. Each game they are not it's killing them. United's financial results are grim, and theirs will be much much worse. They have a Manchester City style wages budget, with a good but not world leading commercial operation and now not being able to trade. Those players they have are drains. I can see why their owners are panicking and making idiots of themselves, making outlandish moves. It's panic. In fairness it's not their owners fault. They were doing what you should do in good teams. Hedging and being bold on them continuing. Unfortunately recessions are cruel, and often punish people unduly who had previously done the right things. The trader with too much stock comes to mind.

    Gomez Injured

    Of course it could’ve gone at any time, but it’s the amount of football being played that has meant this happened. cant see the point in international friendlies any time, which is what the nations league is, however you dress it up, but to also have an actual friendly in there too is madness. I think it would’ve made sense for all international managers to have opted to not pick players firm teams playing in Europe for this round of games, given the number of games those lads have played so far this season.

    Where would someone like Kuyt sit in their echelons? he was well liked here and was a good player for a few years and is fondly thought of since leaving, but he’s nowhere near legend status. The comparison of goals and games between fund and heskey has been done before but Kuyt was better and generally more fondly thought of than him, but for me a good bar for comparison.

    VAR Thoughts?

    But football isn’t alone in the use of replays getting in the way of what the sport is supposed to be. For about 5 consecutive years the NFL had to attempt to redefine what a catch was. The most fundamental aspect of the game - did he catch it - had to be rewritten over and over to satisfy knobheads on the internet.

    VAR Thoughts?

    I’m no fan of VAR but that was rightly disallowed. You can’t go in on the keeper like that and not connect with the ball and expect to get away with it. it wasn’t dangerous or reckless, but it’s a foul. irrespective what angle I’m also still convinced Jota was offside anyway for it, but that’s never been looked at.

    Better players than DCL have had purple patches. he’s started this season really well but it could just as easily go dry for him as continue. everything they do is geared to get him goals, which is good for them and for him, but they’ve been pretty poor the last couple of matches and if that continues they could easily look to play differently and his goals suffer. he’s a pretty decent lump. Nothing more.

    What constitutes the perfect cooked breakfast?

    Fucks sake, you lot. Eat an ice cream: you’re suspect nonce steal your kids ice cream: you’re a tight prick. what’s the point in having kids if you can’t steal their ice cream? None, that’s the answer.

    Ah, you see, here’s the clever bit. I bought my daughter a large double cone, and kept stealing bits off her.

    Mohamed Salah

    And somehow you wouldn’t be mental if you said 2 or 3 of our other players were our best current player, or that 3 or 4 were currently our most important. Good times.

    I just popped into GOT in order to see their mental gymnastics about how awful it is that the club are promoting the rapid testing and using anfield as a site for tests, but I haven’t got that far yet. instead I’ve stumbled across page 1889-1890 of their Liverpool thread discussing how many better centre halves there have been in the prem than van dijk after he was voted second best ever behind Vidic on some online poll or other. its an enjoyable read and reminds me of Code’s famous list of right backs back in the day. notable offers so far include Ivanovic, Gallas, Distin and from the City fan knobhead on there, the player who was “everything VVD wants to be”... you guessed it... Daniel Van Buyten. its fun, you should check it out.

    Diogo Jota

    Also, consistency tends to develop as players get older and gain experience. You’d expect a player that has purple patches at ages 20-24 to start to play more reliably towards the upper end of those levels more often as they develop. theres very, very few 23 year olds that don’t have good and bad spells.

    West Ham (H) - Premier League - 31/10/20 - 17:30

    The pen was a pen, but I’d call him a diving twat if he was an opposition player and I’d be furious about the way he went down, even though I know he was kicked and it’s a pen. if it was that diving twat at united id be angry, but he wouldn’t have been called out as a diver the way Salah was and always is. With the disallowed goal, I’d want it disallowed if it was against us, and sometimes they are and sometimes they’re not. I have a strong suspicion Jota was offside anyway though so had already assumed it was gonna be chalked off, hadn’t celebrated it, and accepted it fairly comfortably. mainly cause VAR coupled with empty grounds and rubbish piped crowd noise has sucked the emotion out of watching the match.

    It wasn’t a breakfast, I had it for lunch at Stump Cross Caverns in the Yorkshire Dales while my daughter was doing a potions science class thing today, but it’s got enough of a breakfast about it to feel like it can go in here. this was fucking wonderful. one of the nicest lunches out I’ve had in a long while. corned beef hash fritters, black pudding and eggs. Brown sauce underneath. Terrific.

    VAR Thoughts?

    We couldn’t be any more aligned on this overall Barry, and I made the point about level disappearing around the same time you did. id be happy with one line used to help aid someone viewing the screen, maybe, but we all know what offside looks like. let the linesman call it as they see it and let the times they get it clearly wrong be overturned. What’s so hard about that?
