    Summer 2022 Transfer Thread

    Welcome to Liverpool, Fabio Carvalho?
  2. As a counter-balance to the other "Little things" thread, what stuff is guaranteed to make you smile or give you a bit of a lift for a few minutes? I'll start with buskers playing unexpected song-choices. There was a bloke in town last week doing eclectic stuff like Alabama Song and The Man in Me. What's not to love?

    Mohamed Salah

    I can see how some would insist on being the best paid at their club, but even then it's not the money but the status that it represents. But footballers are human and (most) humans know that there's more to happiness than endlessly acquiring stuff; quality of life doesn't improve with a payrise from £200k to £300k. I don't know whether Salah registered it, but if you look at the Kop cheering Maka for her now-traditional end-of-season goal, you would surely think that that's the sort of moment that you want your children to enjoy; things like that can't be bought.

    Simpsons - Lemon of Troy

    As fine and thread-worthy an episode Trash of the Titans is, Lemon of Troy is the one above all others for me. Everything in it - every line and all the animation - is just perfect: from the wet cement, to Shelbyville Manhattan's attractive cousin, to Milhouse becoming invisible, to Rocky VII-Adrian's Revenge, to Bart using aerosols as jetpacks, to "Hark to the Tale of Nelson", to a nice refreshing glass of turnip juice. It's just perfect. Shitty YouTube has let me down, though: I could only find a few clips. [YOUTUBE]qG4NaRkFYmk[/YOUTUBE] [YOUTUBE]jXSUKNCNCMo[/YOUTUBE] [YOUTUBE]GrCYX5lxVQo[/YOUTUBE]

    That an extra 50% would make a difference to Premier League footballers, but not to me or you?

    Mohamed Salah

    I think us normals put too much emphasis on the money. If someone offered us, say, 50% more to go somewhere else, then we'd go in a heartbeat, because that would mean something to us. It would make a real difference to our lives. But if you're already being paid, say, £150,000 every fucking week, why would more money be attractive? What would you do with it that you can't already do? How would it make your life better?

    Nike deal

    This is the way to go.

    Keir Starmer

    I've said this before, but I want a separation of the Executive from the Legislative branches. Let's actually have an elected Prime Minister.

    Repped for the phrase "quality minge".

    Jurgen Norbert Klopp

    Gene Simmons is the mental image you took away from that????

    Keir Starmer

    I liked his speech in the Commons today, calling on the Tory backbenchers to stop hiding and to do the right thing by binning the hateful sack of shit.

    Another US Shooting

    And in that permanently febrile atmosphere, it's a really bad idea to encourage angry people to get tooled up. I don't think anyone denies all those other cultural issues, but they would take generations to resolve; reducing the ease with which cunts can arm themselves is something that can - and should - happen right now and it would save lives.

    *Shakes head* Everton again.

    "The team that would have won the European Cup" because, obviously, they were the greatest team in Europe (despite being, demonstrably, the second-best team in their postcode area).

    Fabinho

    I like the way this has been repped by Mook (for the fit lass) and Babb's (for the titfer).

    Another US Shooting

    Fuck me. I hope you stamped their bollocks into a paté, because any cunt that blasé about murdered children deserves no better.

    Another US Shooting

    It's the way the gun-control position is framed. It's the same as the voters who were dead set against "Obamacare" (because, y'know, Socialism) and were then shocked to lose their Affordable Care Act rights. Most Americans want "responsible gun ownership", but any moves to legislate for that are portrayed as attempts to steal everyone's guns so the Government can hoard them.

    Crime and Punishment

    A thread for crime-related news stories that aren't worth their own thread and don't fit comfortably into other threads. Starting with this - film yourself licking ice cream before you buy it? Thirty days in a Texas jail. https://www.bbc.com/news/world-us-canada-51762753 Land of the free, innit.

    Another US Shooting

    If I remember rightly, opinion polls routinely say that American citizens - even NRA members - want controls such as background checks, cooling-off periods and bans on certain types of weapons and accessories. But, come election time, any politician who supports these things is portrayed as an un-American tyrant, coming to take away your right to defend yourself and your family. Politicians have given up on children's lives so they can keep taking gun-lobby money. It's not madness; it's evil.

    Another US Shooting

    Four years ago kids not yet old enough to say "bullshit" called out the political corruption that's behind every single mass shooting. No cunt in Washington listened; they just carried on taking NRA money and refusing to do anything to protect children. There isn't a Hell deep enough for them.

    ... that doesn't fit into any other thread, but doesn’t merit a thread of its own.

    *Shakes head* Everton again.

    A bit generous to count West Ham's play-off win as a major trophy.
