    The Mersey Beat Down - Echo Arena 28th March 2009

    If I was unscrupulous I would get the other 3 lads to order £75 tickets , collect the moolah & get mine for nowt. Lucky I wouldn't do that , honest.

    Valentines day tips

    Don't let us miserable old bastards stop you stumptown. With my birthday being on the 17th , I have had the misfortune to spend my whole adult life being surrounded by couples staring into each others eyes making grand romantic gestures , wherever I go to celebrate it. And as for the 'bumming' comments , it seems to have become a generic term for anything sex-based on here.

    The Mersey Beat Down - Echo Arena 28th March 2009

    Looks a cracking bill Kev. I believe tickets are £28 upwards according to the Echo tonight. I am going to get the lads from work to go and make a night of it.

    The "credit crunch"

    I think she is just trying to build up kudos with the media , after several 'wag' types ( I saw Colleen getting criticised by some shrivelled up old lemon sucker in the papers ) have been slammed for flaunting their wealth in ' such chastening times' blah blah blah Much funnier was the story about Rooney getting a £27 bill in a Cheshire restaurant and producing a half-price voucher he had diligently clipped from the Royston Vasey Bugle or some such like.

    Player Managers

    Can probably be done at a lower level if you have a decent older manager / director of football type sounding board ( I think Ince used Ray Matthias ) but at the top level I don't think it's feasible any more with the pressure of money and fans. If a guy like Scolari can't get more than 7 months what chance would a novice like Terry have ? One of the young managers who I really rate , Roberto Martinez , wouldn't take the job as a player-manager at Swansea and said he would insist on managing only when the job was offered. I think he was correct.

    Supporting another team for family reasons

    Only if it was by Torres
  7. sir roger


    I support England but with with nowhere near the fervour that I follow the Reds. Whilst obviously noting the unsavoury things ( fans / other teams players you dislike etc ) I would like to see England do well in European Championships / World Cup whether they have Liverpool players in the team or not. On a broader point , are there any other countries that have large tracts of the population that hate the national team & revel in attacking it. ? I can only see it as a mix of footballing tribalism & political / historical hate.

    Supporting another team for family reasons

    I could probably support him against anybody other than us , but blood would not be thicker than water if it was against LFC. On a side note I read about one of the England RU players saying that his bird is Welsh & she has told him in no uncertain terms that she wants him to get battered on Saturday

    Risse or Dossena????

    He was also playing as a wing back in Italy I believe , so you can understand the problems caused by going into a full back role in a back 4 as well as a different league at the same time. Certainly worth seeing how he goes to the end of the season at least.
  10. This Week I'm hating French full backs who take a shoeing and won't keep quiet about it.

    Most pointless food

    Sugar Shane Molsey

    Yeah , Billy Collins jr was an up & comer with a 14-0 record but came up against Resto who was a decent journeyman with only @ 6 ko's on his record. Despite being a massive favourite Billy got battered & his face ended up like a cartoon - his father ( chief second ) kept trying to pull him out but Collins didn't want a stoppage on his record. When Resto came over to shake hands at the end , the dad noticed that he could actually feel Resto's knuckles through the glove & shouted the commissioner over who grabbed the gloves. It transpires that the padding from the knuckle part of the glove had been removed & he had in effect been fighting bare-fisted. Collins ended up with a 12 month medical lay off & took to the bottle , ending up killing himself in a Driving Under Influence accident ( never proved as suicide ) Resto and his second ( panama Lewis ) both got lengthy bans but still deny that they were guilty & they say the gloves disappeared for 2 days after the fight before being fully examined & were tampered with in the interim.

    Liverpool are frightened of us!

    I hate all this crap . We won't be scared of them , they won't be scared of us . We are 2 massive superclubs full of excellent players who have played at the top level of football FFS. The Dutch tend to be mouthy bastards though.

    Boruc batters McGeady

    It's got the look of Strachan sucking up to Mcgeady after their spat earlier this season. If McGeady has called Boruc a 'fat prick' several times without having the physical attributes to back himself up , a good shoeing is obviously a good 'life lesson'. Allegedly Artur has been to confession since & done his 10 Hail Marys & 10 Our Fathers so I can't see how wee Gordon thinks he can outrank God with punishments. Interesting to see if 'The Celtic Way' who has started posting has any more details of the severity of the attack.

    Sugar Shane Molsey

    Brings back the spectre of the Luis Resto v Billy Collins Jr fight from the early 80's. Anybody remember it ? - absolutely tragic. I believe there is a documentary being made about it at the moment.

    Liverpool Echo Letters

    It was a letter from a Terence Villiers about our 'slandering' Kirkby with the sock robbers thing & saying he'd written to the club to complain. Just assumed it was a sad bluenose. Wasn't it ?

    fabian delph

    Maybe we should be looking at Hobbs & Martin at Leicester , romping the league they are :thumbup:
  19. I thought that , where the fuck has Mark Fleming come from ? He looks about 12 with a face like a City Bakers Halloween Cake.

    fabian delph

    I think it would be a good thing if some young guys from the Championship and Leagues 1 & 2 made the grade in the upper reaches of the Prem as it seems to be a disappearing trend & money keeps pouring out abroad. Young Delph has looked very good on the few occasions I have seen him on tv. I espoused our buying Kightly from Wolves ( I note the papers today suggesting Bruce is looking to invest £6m of the Palacios money for him in summer )

    Neil Mellor & Sinama Pongolle

    I read the thread title & hoped they'd got engaged.
