    Sick of being Fat

    In 2017 I lost 3 stone partly through watching macros in my diet and partly through lots of exercise. My daily diet was basically roughly 150g of carbohydrates, 80 to 100 g of protein and 50g of fat with one cheat day per week where I could eat pretty much anything. Exercise routine was 3 x one hour long gym sessions split roughly 20 minutes each on strength (heavy weights with low reps and breaks to recover), conditioning (lighter weights with large numbers of reps and little recovery) and high intensity (circuits aimed to get me blowing out my arse). As well as that I did two runs a week with one longer run and one shorter run. The longer one started at a mile and a half and was at 5 miles by the end of the year. Last year I kept up the exercise to a point but not as strictly and diet was much worse certainly over the last 6 months. I could look at factors like a relationship ending, moving house and an Achilles injury as being reasons for that but they're just excuses to a point I suppose. On New Years Day I was around a stone heavier than last year so full of motivation I'm well back into a routine now. 3 pounds down in week 1 and raring to go. I have three aims for this year. Beat the 10k time of 53 minutes I did early last year, shift the extra stone I've picked up and keep it off and also to get in good shape for my holidays in May.

    Marco Silva was basically saying they have to sell to buy in his press conference earlier. Maybe they plan to slam the Oumar Niasse money down on the Napoli chairman's desk. Billionaires though aren't they?

    Other Football - 2018/19 Season

    Just had a look at City's fixtures to see what games they'll get moved to the end of the season if they stay in the cups. League cup final means Everton away moves and if they get to the quarters of the FA cup then United away moves. I'm sure they'll both be giving their all if they have nothing to play for in May...

    The only thing that spade will be digging is the grave for their hopes and dreams when they realise Moshiri is a fraud and the only club shuddering to visit there will be Everton. There's no way that stadium is financially viable and that's why it's all still talk nearly 3 years on. It's going to be great viewing when all this dawns on them.
  5. The only positives I can see is that we saw a glimpse of Hoever's potential (judging him as 16 year old thrown in at the deep end) and that apart from diving in on the first goal Fabinho generally looked good while operating as a one man defence. His ability on the ball may actually be a big positive against Brighton assuming he steps in for Lovren in that game as they'll probably play quite defensively. The attitude from Moreno and Sturridge in particular was enough to show that both should go in the Summer and the performance from Mignolet was in line with what you'd expect. Two good shots on target and two goals. I'm gradually coming to an opinion that Keita won't come good for us although I know many disagree. He has definite ability but he's too slow to see obvious passes (especially when he's dribbling) and gets stuck with his head down too much which hurts our attacking play. I can see why he doesn't play regularly. I'll only really form my feelings on this game at the end of the season. If we win something I'll see it positively and if we don't then not so much. I'm just glad I turned down a ticket for last night or I probably wouldn't be so relaxed about it.

    The shitness of modern football

    Can't remember which game it was but some cunt was dressed as Luigi at one of the matches too probably thinking he was hilarious.

    Qualification permutations

    If that happens the results against Red Star would be discounted and positions would be based on a mini league table from games between us, Napoli and PSG. We'd have 6 points from those games and the others would have 5 so we'd win the group.

    Fortunately we just met for a drink although I did end up paying for those before I made my excuses.

    PSG (A) Champions League 28/11/2018

    PSG need to win or qualification is probably out of their hands going into the last game. If we draw then we'll need to beat an already qualified Napoli to put them out assuming they beat Red Star at home. That might force their quality attackers to put the shift in that they couldn't be arsed to at Anfield but I have a feeling that we'll do them if they go too gung ho. First goal is massive and we could pick them off if they start chasing it as they don't seem the most organised at the back. I'm going 3-1 to the Reds.

    Date thread

    After over 10 years in a relationship I'm now single and met up with a girl from Tinder the other night. Technology has moved on a lot since I've been single but I learned a harsh lesson on the invention of filters the other night. If someone has a filter with a a dog's face on then unless you're Keith Lard you can't end up too disappointed with who you end up meeting. However, turning up to find out the petite 24 year old you've arranged to meet is built like a tank is a bit more of a disappointment. I'm not sure exactly what reaction someone who alters their appearance to that extent is expecting but surely they know it's not going to be positive.

    The shitness of modern football

    Bought my son a membership card this season with the intention of taking him to his first game but it's virtually impossible to get two tickets together when he has has no credits. I've basically had to pay for the privilege of sitting for hours in queues and having to explain to a disappointed 6 year old why he can't go when I'm off to the match.

    This century Everton have had one victory away from home against domestic opposition who are competing in the Champions League (against United when Moyes was there). It's no wonder that game against City didn't count as it matched the number of wins against that category of team that they've had in over 70 odd equivalent matches.

    Red Star Belgrade 2 Liverpool 0 (Oct 6 2018)

    My observation is that we are no longer a high energy pressing team. We're compact and relatively passive without the ball and relying on something happening at the other end to nick games. We aren't hunting in packs and forcing mistakes and those running stats highlight it. I actually don't think our attackers suit that style of game at all. Firmino in particular is wasted in a wide position in this system and if this is a permanent tactical switch we might as well sell him as we just won't get value from him. As for the midfield, it just lacks any real quality at all. Shaqiri has to come into it now as there's barely any goals or creativity in it at all. It's been said before but this team has a very 2002 feel about it at the moment. Good teams have the ability to play badly and win but they don't play badly most games and do it over a season.

    Loris Karius

    I think the talk of him getting his act together last season was overplayed too. He still made loads of mistakes but for a short period he kept getting away without them costing us. Unfortunately, the luck ran out in the biggest game of them all. He's quite possibly the worst top flight keeper I've ever seen. Even Bogdan would have served us better in that final.

    Salah hasn't scored 50 goals at Anfield either so it's Liverpool history rather than Anfield history. To be fair, if there's one thing they are experts in it's Liverpool
