    Irritating celebrity fans

    Ah, thanks. I think I may have seen her a while ago on LFCTV.

    Dire. Utterly dire. There's no beginning to his talent.

    None the wiser.

    Youth Team/Cup

    He's also on his third agent. He's 18 and he's already gone through three agents. And will probably be actively seeking a fourth at this very moment.

    "And they won the second half!" Shut the fuck up Tyler.

    The Athletic

    Many thanks for the explanation as to how the world works. You left out boneheaded pedants who misunderstand posts but intervene anyway, but otherwise a most comprehensive job. I like the idea of 'going on twitter' for inside information. That sounds excellent, and so much better than seeking out professionals with bona fide contacts at a club. I hear there's this group called 'The Firm' who are meant to be excellent. And I also like the thought of 'detailed stories'. I feared that most of these would turn out to be set up as major attractions for subscribers, to be followed by the more mundane stuff the same writers churned out in their old jobs, but apparently not. Thanks for the insight!

    The Athletic

    I don't see it succeeding. How many genuinely good writers are there covering football? Very few, and none, IMHO, who really are outstandingly stylish and thoughtful writers. What people would pay for are reporters who are capable of breaking big news stories on a regular basis, and hardly any of the people they've hired will do that.

    FSG are not shit

    Yes, and anyone who thinks he has full control of the budget also needs their head tested.

    FSG are not shit

    When John Henry made these comments a month ago - 'We need to get healthy. We need Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain back, we need a healthy Lallana. And I would guess we will see more of Divock next year' - I was surprised more wasn't made of it, because it struck me that he'd pretty much already decided that Klopp was going to have to make the best of what we have. FSG have learnt a lot since they've been here, but they seem to need to learn it the hard way.

    Naby Keita

    Ginsoak's cunning plan always gets dredged back up, but the truth is FIFA changed the rules to stop managers like him simply saying a player can't join up with his national team. If a player is now called up he has to go, and if a club say he's injured it's down to the national team's medical staff to assess his condition and either agree with or overrule the club.

    2018/19 Season Report Card - Xherdan Shaqiri

    You can't high five Shaq, you have to low five him, but otherwise I agree with all in the OP. I can't quite figure out how he didn't play more often, aside from injury, because he knew the kind of game he'd have to play when he signed, and he's a smart enough player to appreciate how he needed to adapt. His attitude, contrary to Charlie Adam's gossip machine, seems fine, so I just hope he and Klopp work out a better, clearer, role, or roles, for him this time around. He's a very handy player to have in the squad.

    Cover at Left-Back

    Gerrard rated Lewis as one of the best prospects he'd seen at that age. And defensively he's no worse than Trent looked before he got his chance.

    Cover at Left-Back

    Everything that's being said about Adam Lewis at the moment - 'Very promising but he hasn't any experience and can't be trusted as back up' - could have been said about Trent before he got his chance. Where would Trent now be in Clyne and Gomez hadn't got injured? It's a real sliding doors moment - do we give another highly rated Academy player a chance, or do we buy a more experienced player who'll probably block his progress at this club? In my view, Lewis is really talented, and intelligent and quick to learn, who merits the chance to understudy Robertson.

    Alan Partridge

    Ponders searching for Alan Partridge shrug gif, can't be arsed.

    Alan Partridge

    Yes, pathetic, but I've published and broadcast more on that subject than all of his negs stretched out together so I couldn't give a toss.

    Alan Partridge

    I'm very disappointed with the series. The narrative lacks that degree of realism that you need as a backdrop to the comedy - Partridge would have taken far longer before lapsing into his well-known faults, and if you're going to parody a One Show format you need at least a bit of believability, and that horribly laboured business in the first episode with the touch screen and the lost files would never have lasted so long, or even run at all. The timing is also way off - that toilet routine in the same episode was just shoehorned in and again shattered any plausibility. In general it just seems to me a collection of geeky riffs on Partridge by fans rather than good sitcom writers.
  18. Ah, a flat-capped 'arl fella' who has wandered in from RAWK. Most amusing.
  19. Tiresome middle class twats who campaign for their local party at elections by knocking on your door - usually at lunch or dinner time - so they can speak to you on the doorstep as if you're some clueless simpleton who needs 'educating' about the proper exercise of phronesis.

    Ha ha, well I'm sure HE has plenty of chippies.

    Fleetwood has some excellent chippies.

    The shitness of modern football

    Absolutely agree. It particularly gets me when pundits watch a super slo-mo of a player being tackled, and start projecting all kinds of thoughts and intentions on him that simply wouldn't have been possible in real tie: 'You see that, he's just about to be touched and he's thinking "I'll move my foot ever so slightly to the left..." and then he goes down too easily'. It's ridiculous. They ought to try filming a few people in the office being tripped up, watch it back in slo-mo, then see how many of them fall down in 'weird' or 'unnatural' ways.

    Fish and Chips

    This has been a gripe of mine for ages. It's a gamble these days what quantity of chips you get in a pub. We've gone in and got one portion like that, but in others we've had a veritable mountain of chips. The world's gone mad!
