    Branston Pickle

    Picallili is my preferred sandwich pickle.
  2. This is the final word. If the question was, which band was better, I would vote for the The Smiths.

    2018/19 Season Report Card - Sadio Mane

    Should be a 10. What more do you want from a wide forward?

    Good thread. As a kid I used to have multiple teams i favoured for all sorts of arbitrary reasons. I mostly couldn't give a shit now. But for old times sake: Boca Juniors/River Plate - never thought about it Dundee/Dundee United - United. if there was one common theme in my favourites as a kid, it was the cause of the underdog. Dundee United beating the Old Firm in the 80s and being a force in Europe was a wonderful story. Hearts/Hibernian - Hibs. Spent many years living in Leith, which was a wonderful place to be a young man. Gorgie, alternatively, is a horrible shithole. No one ever sang about Sunshine on Gorgie. Arsenal/Tottenham - Tottenham. Loved the Argies as a kid. Actually used to quite like Hoddle too. Newcastle/Sunderland - Sunderland. Very hospitable away fans. Galatasaray/Fenerbahce - Fenerbache on the basis they are anti-establishment, which may not even be true. Only really cos I heard of Galatasaray first so thought Fene were the underdogs Borussia Dortmund/Schalke 04 - Dortmund because of Klopp Genoa/Sampdoria - Sampdoria cos of Souness Inter/Milan - Milan because of how good they were in the late 80s/90s when we were banned. I still feel like they were the best club side I've ever seen and one I wish we had faced in our pomp. Inter are nomarks in comparison Lazio/Roma - Lazio cos I liked Gazza and because of the Roma fans in 84 Athletic Bilbao/Real Sociedad - always liked the Basque only thing for both. Aldridge at Sociedad clinches it but like them both Real Betis/Sevilla - no view Ajax/Feyenoord - Ajax just cos of the legacy of good footballers. Benfica/Sporting Lisbon - never thought about it. Benfica probably because of Eusebio Olympiakos/Panathinaikos - no view

    Spot on. I love him for it because in tight games, he gets us out of trouble time and again.

    Summer 2019 Transfer Thread

    You could argue that the market has inflated significantly in the last two years, but I know what you mean. His stock has gone right down. I suspect though that he will still have his admirers, especially abroad.

    Rose has got that look in his eye. He has got plenty of bottle. This should be good

    Happy Fathers Day

    Yeah. It cost me about 15 quid in celebratory ice creams for everyone. Pretty typical.

    I spoke with Neil Lennon on a train recently. He was very nice.

    Summer 2019 Transfer Thread

    Yep, I know the interview you mean. Here's Bascombe's write up on it. He doesn't mention Coutinho at all, his point is that we won't spend big because we don't need to. You are adding the link to Coutinho yourself. https://www.telegraph.co.uk/football/2019/03/15/jurgen-klopp-liverpool-wont-spend-big-summer-squad-can-compete/ In fact if you go back to Klopp's comments at the time of the Coutinho sale, he specifically says that the Van Dijk purchase isn't linked. Of course he may be managing the message but there's nothing I've seen yet to back up your point that Klopp has been very clear that no Coutinho = no Van Dijk. As I said above, it's just speculation. Whereas Coutnho's actions and intent are very clear indeed.

    Summer 2019 Transfer Thread

    I'll give you Alisson (bought months later obviously), where has Klopp been clear that there is no VVD purchase without Coutinho leaving? We tried to buy him in the previous summer of course, or was that just a smokescreen?
