    Scottish Independence, yay or nay?

    I'm going to vote with the SNP in the election next year - Joanna Cherry is my MSP - and vote for independence, again.

    Takumi Minamino

    That is shocking to me. Mane wrestles off and routinely powers through 2,3 or 4 players at a time. Minamino can't weigh more than 10st.

    Neco Williams

    Start him against Ajax, the Danes and in the FA cup in January. But no, don't play him in matches that could really hurt us.

    Takumi Minamino

    He clearly has a lot of talent and potential, but has no business on the pitch with fully grown adults. That Bissouma must have been wondering "Who is this small child, and why is he standing next to Milner and Wijnaldum?"

    Divock Origi

    Origi is my man and I have always backed him, as I thought deputising for the best forwards in world football was an impossible task, particularly when you don't play for months and get an occasional 5-15 minute interval. Kind of changed my mind now, seeing how Jota took 20 minutes and ought to be in the front 3, really. If you're good enough, you take any chance and dislodge even indispensable players. It's time to cash in, even though I wish he could stay.

    I think Wilder is now finished as a top level heavyweight. Between the Breazeale/Ortiz/Fury fights he has now lost about 90% of rounds he's boxed in the last 3 years. Moreover, he has had a mental breakdown since Fury took him in February. Anybody can lose a fight but when you start talking treacherous trainers, refs, spiked water bottles, that means you're not in the gym trying to correct mistakes. How can you change the things you did wrong when you don't think you did anything wrong?

    Ah, my mistake.

    Keir Starmer

    Nobody on this forum loves you more than I do Mark, but this is way off target. It's certainly correct to say Corbyn is inherently and constitutionally incapable of being a modern leader for a major political party. I think that is fair. All of his most vehement supporters have been imploring to be more ruthless, better with the press, negotiate with/supply friendlier terms to moderates etc, etc. Essentially, everything that Starmer has shown himself willy enough to manouevre. But I cannot accept that defending yourself against the most outrageous smears and allegations any politician has ever been subjected to means he is less than. Does anybody really believe that Corbyn is an anti-semite? No. He has spent his whole advocating for human rights, equality and justice. That what is right for a comfortable, rich, white, Londer like him is right for everyone. To let that central belief in right and wrong be equated with bigotry without challenging it would let the causes of Palestine today and South African apartheid before it stand as realpolitik considerations - which would be completely unacceptable. He has a 70% approval rating in the Labour party and Starmer romped to victory by promising to advocate for many of the cross racial, working class ideas that Corbyn exemplifies. I think it's right we hold him to it, and there is only so little I'm willing to compromise with knobheads in Preston/Darlington who betrayed their fathers and grandfathers.
  10. Next Saturday night at Anfield, there is a charity event with Sami. He's going to give an interview, then all the people who have paid get to ask him a question. I will be going with a group. Sami is everybody's favourite player, so none of us have been able to think of decent questions. If you think of a good question, stick it in this thread, I will ask him next week and post his answer on here.

    An evening with Sami Hyypia

    This is the kind of guy I admire. The strong, silent type.

    Nathaniel Phillips

    Sami is second only to Hansen as the best defender in this club's amazing history. Not sure I'd want to draw that comparison for a 5th choice just finding his feet.

    Who are the top 5 heavyweights? Fury beats him. 70/30 Usyk does too. I would like to see how Joshua looks against Pulev, because the book is now out on him that if you can stand up to his firepower he has a real problem. He would beat Wilder and Povetkin, in my opinion.
  16. Kevin D

    Boxing 2020

    Basically, yes. There are not a lot of Pernell Whittaker's and Floyd Mayweather's at heavyweight. Fury would beat him cleanly. Usyk probably would. But he's a gigantic human being who has an iron chin and middleweight stamina, he will outlast anyone who gets in the ring with him.

    I also disagree about Joyce's ceiling. He has a lot of limitations, but he fought disciplined tonight out of respect to Dubois's freakish power. Against 99% of heavyweights, he will simply put it on them and keep marching forward for 12 rounds. He is a rough, rough night for anyone, even if they end up beating him. In the build up to this, he said he was tested and his bone density is 7x that of a normal person.
  18. Kevin D

    Boxing 2020

    I don't agree. He has no top level amateur experience and it was his first time in against someone who wouldn't bend. He is going to get massacred over this for the next 6 months and won't be willing to repeat quit again. Only 23, I think he comes back.
  19. Kevin D

    Boxing 2020

    Look at them standing next each other. Dubois is 6'4 and 240lbs and he's dwarfed by Joyce. They look like they're in different divisions.

    Jabbing to the body is risky against a big right handed puncher.
  21. Kevin D

    Boxing 2020

    Arguably, these two are possibly larger than Minamino.

    I do like that Joyce has his own theme song, more boxers should get on that.
