  1. When I was on my 20s (I’m 41 now) I played against a 40 year old ex-New Zealand international. He ran rings round us and made me realise just how good the top level pros must be.

    Tory Cabinet Thread

    Literally happened 2 mins down the road from me! Operated on ‘on-site’ but hasn’t been moved for 2.5 hours. Doesn’t sound good.
  3. Your homemade beans have got cumin? Dirty bastard.

    Emre Can

    I hope his tea bag splits the next time he’s making a brew and he spends a minute or two trying to fish out the leaves before deciding his attempts are futile and he has to restart the tea making process all over again.

    Adverts you hate.

    Can’t remember if I’ve already posted it on here or not…..even if I have it’s worth another mention. Those fucking Nationwide adverts where someone is spouting some god awful ‘poem’ or whatever it is you want to call it. Cringeworthy bollocks.

    Cheese v Beans

    Beans in the omelette? I’m intrigued……however surely you could just put a big dollop of them on the side and still enjoy the glorious bean juice too? Cheesy omelette and juicy beans. Wonderful.

    Even Klopp can be wrong sometimes. Doesn’t the story go that he needed convincing about Salah? Bamford is in his peak years and has found his level. A striker for a team in the mid to bottom half of the Premier League.

    But Salah + Jota also had a 3rd more touches than Bamford. Bamford was terrible yesterday…it’s exactly the same every time I’ve seen him play. I admire your perseverance but if you think the level Bamford plays at is that of a top player than you need to reevaluate your standards I’m afraid.
  9. Woah there. You’re doing a great injustice to a certain Patrick Bamford.

    He’s a professional footballer so I’d hope to see some decent clips in a highlight reel spanning what looks like most of his career to date. If you pieced together my best goals from Monday 5-a-side I’d look pretty decent too. I’ve only ever seen Bamford play when Leeds are on TV and he can go from the sublime to ridiculous in a single 90 mins. I’ve seen balls bounce off him that should have stuck, miss numerous sitters and then he’ll go and score a cracker. There’s nothing you can say or show me that will convince me that he’s anywhere near good enough for us. His career numbers and the fact he’s never been linked to a ‘big’ club should be proof enough.

    All players at an age where they were about to hit their peak and had already shown plenty of potential during their careers. Bamford has been loaned from club to club and looked like a bit of a donkey. He is also days away from turning 28 so is presumably in the middle of his ‘peak’ years. Jimenez is 30 years old and is only just returning from a potential career ending injury.

    I don’t think many would argue against the possibility that Bobby might need replacing. However everyone except you are in agreement that we can do better than absolute dross like Bamford and Jimenez.
