    Boris Johnson

    I wish he'd fucking died the other year the fat fucking mess. He's a fucking disgrace and he's dragging us all down with his indifference and complete disregard for anything other than his own fat fucking carcass. I fucking despise him.
  2. City fans invade the pitch and sing the Gerrard song after their demigods in Abu Dhabi buy them another title. Pitch invasions and singing about other teams. Christ. They’re a small club, they always have been a small club and they always fucking will be a small club no matter how much they spend. Couldn’t love this group of players and staff more. Beyond proud of them.

    Proper Tory behaviour. Run something into the ground to make the sticking plaster look better. He’s handling Everton like his mate Johnson will deal with the cost of living crisis.

    Could be good in the long term. The Tory Woodison Warrior will be hard to sack when they fail to win their first ten after selling Rickylad and Big Blouse Dom.
  5. Blatant foul that but our forwards are fair game.

    Monarchy

    I'll work that extra bank holiday (well actually use a day's leave since I'll be in France) if we abolish the monarchy. That follows that particular logical bollocks to an end doesn't it?

    Summer 2022 Transfer Thread

    I don't think Son is that much better or worse than a great many players in the league when it comes to snideyness. Where I take exception to him is that he seems to have this nice guy image because he looks dead happy when Spurs score, which is completely mad. But that would make fuck all difference to the culture of the club. We aren't fucking signing him though.

    Alisson Becker

    Alisson's the best keeper I've ever seen at one vs ones, by a country mile. Original Schmeichel was pretty good but Alisson is something else entirely - he just nails everything. Positioning, timing of running out, technique of getting down to block, scrambling recovery back to his feet, the lot. When a player runs through on goal, unless he's dead centre, in my head I make Alisson the favourite to come out on top in almost every situation. Ederson beats Alisson on raw distribution but when it comes to quick releases - a skill that's more useful to us and the way we play anyway - there's no difference. He might be slightly more agile as well, but Alisson's superior positioning makes that difference negligible at most. Absolutely love the big handsome bastard.

    Man City - the new bitters?

    I've said it loads of times: City winning the league is the closest you can get to voiding the league without voiding the league. If City win, football collectively shrugs and goes "yeah so you should do with all your money", their handful of fans demand respect and everyone else concentrates more on who missed out - generally us. If we win, there are legions of unbearable fans, and everyone either has to congratulate a team they hate, or try and explain their own lack of success in opposition to it. Point is it stirs up a lot of feelings; City winning just doesn't. They could win the next five and most people would talk more about who misses out on the CL, or who gets relegated unexpectedly or whatever. It's a great comfort for most.

    And an otherwise excellent goalkeeper chucking them in for them. Fucks sake.

    Keir Starmer

    The Tory press has typically been too greedy and overreached themselves on this. "Beergate" could have been a convenient little card to play here and there when "Partygate" rears its head occasionally. Not something that's a complete ace card as it was too easily batted away, but just something to muddy the waters a bit and stop Labour going all in on the Downing Street parties. But they've managed to convince themselves that a great victory is in their grasp, that Starmer can be hoisted on a petard of his own hypocrisy so they've pushed this to the point of crystallisation, and all that's done is hand the initiative back to Labour. Like most I doubt Starmer has done this without some pretty secure knowledge that he's unlikely to meet the threshold for a FPN or worse, but effectively the Tory press have allowed him to look decisive (a common accusation at him), whilst also letting him either take the proven moral high ground if found to have broke no rules, or at the very worst damage Johnson on his way out if he did break them. They've overplayed this because they're arrogant and are used to getting their own way with a minimum of effort. This needed a bit of thought but they couldn't fucking do it.

    *Shakes head* Everton again.

    The most amazing thing about it is the delusion at the heart of it. Everyone else says “big 6” but not Everton, because they’re a bigger club than everyone in it. So it’s a “powers that be” or “Big Red” creation.
  13. The Jurgen extension has improved my mood about (probably) missing out on the title. I can get over not winning it - the bar is ridiculous nowadays for obvious and unfair reasons - but I've always felt it's unfair on the people involved as they deserve so much more. And the thought that Klopp only has a finite amount of time left at the club made me think that the window for this incredible team to hoover up the silverware they deserve is diminishing, and it's frustrating and a fucking shame. But we've got two other major pieces of silverware to compete for, and whilst Klopp's time at the club is still finite, it's got longer. There'll be more chances, more incredible football, more drama, more titles. I'm absolutely certain of it, so I'm just going to enjoy the rest of this season for what it is. Class. (Oh and whoever said above that the unending talk of quads is just the media wanting to make it a thing so that when we miss out - as we always likely would - they can indulge themselves in further headlines, is bang on. Self-fulfilling media in full action)

    Star Trek - The Shit, or Just Shit?

    With both series of Picard they started well enough and could have gone in some interesting directions, but they end up picking up too many threads, not knowing what to do with them, spinning them out unnecessarily and then having to be lazy as fuck in tying them up. Similar to GOT in a way, albeit without the same level of quality in the beginning (and with some hideously unsubtle social commentary shoehorned in), but where you spend so long weaving through storylines and then you realise you've got about two hours of screentime to wrap them all up and the only way you can do it is to cut corners, stamp all over the rules of your established universe and leave everybody unsatisfied. It just feels like a massive missed opportunity, making what could be a simple and straightforward series - but an interestingly different one - and turning it into an unsolveable mess.
