  1. Ability-wise I feel completely comfortable saying he's the best defender I've ever seen play for the club (so better than Hansen, Lawrenson, Hyypia, Carra etc). Needs to stay at the club for a few more years to say he has achieved as much as some of them, but frankly I've never seen a defender anywhere that has as much to his game as van Dijk. It's not hyperbole with him; he's just that good.

    Been thinking a lot about this recently. For me the first time I remember thinking this way was when Nick Griffin was on Question Time in 2009. All the hype beforehand was that he was particularly dangerous because of what an astute mind he had in terms of legitimising extreme right wing views. And then Question Time actually happened, and it turned out he was about as articulate and convincing as a drunk uncle on Christmas evening.

    Peanut butter

    The only time I would willingly eat smooth peanut butter is in a Reese's Peanut Butter Cup.

    Upcoming Games

    New footage released by Naughty Dog (no spoilers) - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WEKQaQ8IO-s Looks absolutely incredible.
  7. The broadcasters are saying the opposite, aren't they?
  8. Really don't see what he's said wrong here. We're all struggling, why would he be any different?

    Duncan Oldham

    Duncan's the real victim of this virus, but I don't see anyone walking their garden to raise money for him. This country...

    Debbie Harry, Stevie Nicks or Kate Bush ?

    Debbie Harry in her prime was basically perfect.

    This is what is so disingenuous about the 'we're following the science, taking the right decisions at the right time' bollocks. You do not need to be an expert to see that minimising human contact minimises the transmission of the virus. At least in the short term. It is inarguable. That would be the same with a cold; if you stay in bed for a couple of days you are going to pass your cold onto fewer people than if you got the tube to work, where you then sit in a crowded, air conditioned office. And that's why I think Johnson and co have blood on their hands for what's happened here; allowing the likes of the Cheltenham Festival, our CL game and the Stereophonics (frankly I think there is a strong argument that the Stereophonics represent a serious health hazard at the best of times, but I realise that is personal opinion) to draw huge crowds during the weeks of delay clearly contributed to our current situation. The problem is, unless we have herd immunity, a vaccine, drugs which minimise the seriousness of infection or the virus weakens as it mutates, the second we ease the lockdown, how on earth do we stop exactly the same levels happening again? Here is where you really do need an expert rather than someone on a football forum named after an Anchorman outtake, but it seems to me like short term the best hope is that the virus weakens as it mutates. Otherwise it feels like something akin to lockdown is going to be necessary until a vaccine is found.

    I would absolutely love to read a constructive, agenda-free article which provides a more positive outlook. But I don't think what you posted is it.
  15. sh#t waffle


    But it was always a massive reach, and was frankly a nonsensical argument (that somehow not restricting people's contact with others would not lead to people transmitting the virus to more people) — just suggests an agenda to me that pervades much of the rest of what is in that article.

    It's pretty disingenuous to raise Sweden as an argument for lockdowns not being effective, given the low population density and the fairly important fact that their methods have been the least effective of the Scandinavian countries.

    *Shakes head* Everton again.

    No matter how hard I try to be relatively objective, I'm well aware that when speaking about football I have a natural pro-Liverpool bias. But try as I might, I cannot think of a single genuine justification for cancelling the current season at this point other than 'Liverpool won't win it, think of the bantz'. Liverpool supporters are being accused of not caring about people dying, when it seems like we are the only ones not actually putting football rivalry above everything else. I have not seen a single Liverpool supporter say anything other than we need to wait and see whether the situation becomes clearer at some point in the next month or so. What is the reasoning for doing anything else?

    Corona Virus Economic Impact

    At first I was cynical too, but when Toby Young suggested lifting the restrictions might be a good idea, with his proven track record for meticulous research and dealing only in incontrovertible facts, I couldn't help but change my mind.

    Corona Virus Economic Impact

    I'm a freelance copywriter, and the arse has fallen out of what I do. Basically the only work I have had over the last few weeks has, depressingly enough, been virus/death-related. I'm fortunate in that I have some savings, but times are going to get pretty tough if things don't improve soon.

    The 'Magic' Thread

    This blew my mind when I first saw it (not pure magic but close enough, particularly given how much Derren Brown looked like the magician from the IT Crowd at this point):
