    *Shakes head* Everton again.

    Looking forward to taking my kids to their footy in the morning. There's a dad there who was beaming with pride when his 5 year old kid was kicking off and refusing to wear a red bib a couple of months back. It'll be interesting to see if he brings him there again in the brand new PSG kit he was sporting last week.
  2. I've only done Newcastle once which was about 15 years ago now. I remember that the bar was facing the stairs when you eventually get up there which was well thought out as I needed a pint by the time I made it. I've just counted out 21 grounds that I've been to which surprised me as I didn't think there'd be as many as that. Villa Park is a good shout among the favourites as a few have mentioned but I used to like Ewood Park in the warmer months too as it's not far away and there's a good beer garden. I went to Preston for a cup game once too and liked the walk from the station as it was littered with good pubs along the way. They'd be a good team to come up at some point. My least favourites are Bolton (in the middle of a retail park - a real shame the blues didn't end up with something like that in Kirkby), Stoke (fuck all around there too other than a business park) and Wembley (only been there for cup games and the whole presentation of the way they hold games is far removed from what it should be). I could easily throw the Etihad and Old Trafford into that list too.

    Champions League Draw 2018-19

    They're more worried about us than we are of them! https://www.liverpoolecho.co.uk/sport/football/football-news/liverpools-champions-league-opponents-napoli-15106062

    Foxes 0 Sly Old Foxy Stoats 4 (Leicester Away 1/9/2018)

    Leicester are a decent team who came away from the game having thought they played well but they didn't create a clear chance in the game aside from Alisson's error. Defensively, we were totally comfortable both before and after that mistake. I saw something earlier that said their only shot after they scored was a 30 yarder that was blocked so we always had them at arms length. Going forward we were not so good but we still carved them open on a few occasions and were only some poor decision making away from not doing several times more. The concern is that we will start dropping points eventually if the front three don't click back into gear but I expect them to and when they do we're going to be hard to stop.

    Julian Assange is a fucking hero

    From the admittedly infrequent bits I've read I see him as a pawn in the whole Russian agenda on Brexit and Trump which is why he's meeting with people like Farage and Trump Jr. As a PR piece a guy leaking selective information under the guise of being on the side of the people would be a pretty useful influencer. He's no hero of mine.

    Other Football - 2018/19 Season

    I remembered that about Mo against him too. I also thought he was shite against Tunisia at the World Cup. I'm not having him at all so i'd be happy for them to get him.

    Loris Karius

    Karius made loads of mistakes prior to that final. Off the top of my head just from the run of games after he came back: - Punching the ball on to Milner for the disallowed goal away at City. - Throwing the ball to Van Dijk under pressure in the first minute away at City. - Fumbling Kolarov's shot on to the bar at home to Roma. - Taking out Dzeko for what could have been a pen and red card against Roma but for Dzeko being incorrectly given offside. - Parrying out straight to Dzeko when he scored in the away game in Rome. - The pen he gave away at Palace when he came storming out his goal and clattered their player. - Sane's goal at Anfield in the league where he shot through him at the near post. In the end his luck ran out and his team mates weren't able to bail him out this time. Had we lost any of those games due to his mistakes then he would have come under scrutiny much sooner. I don't think he has the ability or mentality to play at the top level. I'm glad we have someone on board now that hopefully does have those things and hope the club support Karius through coming to terms with what happened in Kiev away from the spotlight.

    Loris Karius

    I remember being massively unsympathetic when Harry Kewell went off in Istanbul. Years later I actually met him and spoke to him about it. He told me deciding to come off in a game like that was horrible but that he knew he wasn't able to perform to his best with the knock he had and had to put the team first. If only Karius had done the same.

    He's not fat. His face is swollen from the trauma of having just been 'born'.

    I like to think he specifically meant Simeone's house.

    Loris Karius

    At the final whistle on Saturday I felt genuinely sorry for him on a human level but the whole thing just didn't surprise me and as much as anything I was annoyed he was out there in the first place. He should never have found himself at a club as big as Liverpool as he just doesn't have the ability or the temperament. I think I said somewhere earlier in this thread that he's the worst number one I've ever seen us have and would cost us big at some point. It's just a shame it had to be in a match this big. The truth is his improvement has been mainly based around making an occasional save but he's still been suspect. In this time, he got lucky with some errors (Kolarov's shot at Anfield, bringing down Dzeko in Rome, punching against Milner at City) and where his errors were punished they didn't affect the result until now (the penalty at Palace, the parry to Dzeko in Rome, the throw to Van Dijk at City). I've only just watched the goals back now and I even think he could have done better with Bale's first. I might be in a minority on that and it's obviously not as horrendous as the other two but I think the only reason he doesn't save it is because he jumps before Bale kicks it and can't set himself as a result. If you see how long the ball is in the air for and how close he is before he pulls his hands away for some reason then you see that a top keeper on his toes takes a step and saves it. Karius can't because of the jump. It was bad technique.

    Getting to Kiev and Accomodation

    She'd emptied the drawers to give me room for my clothes. That's the only complaint about the place I could have.

    Getting to Kiev and Accomodation

    I know. After 24 hours of travelling I was exhausted though and expected to have another shot on the Sunday but it didn't work out that way in the end. It was still a great weekend all the same.

    Getting to Kiev and Accomodation

    That's right. I'd have preferred to have been even luckier with her but the plans I made around the football prevented any (limited) chance I had of working on that.

    Getting to Kiev and Accomodation

    I asked about this and she declined. I found out that this was her apartment and that her and her daughter had gone to stay with friends for a few days because of the chance to make some extra money while the final was on so I imagine there won't be a listing on Airbnb for the place now. I think this comment may have been a cultural thing as she just expected that was a possibility of some sort and was quite matter of fact about it. As a host she was brilliant. I'd traveled over alone and was pretty wary of what to expect but as well as the breakfast on arrival I had a good night out in the local district Podil with her and some of her friends on the Friday. The only downside was because of plans I made to meet other Liverpool fans I didn't get to see her again after that which was disappointing as she was pretty stunning too. What a weekend that was though. The Liverpool fans I met up with were all brilliant and even though we lost (and I narrowly avoided getting my head kicked in down in the subway at one point) it was probably one of the best weekends I've had.
