    Summer 2022 Transfer Thread

    He's the Porto player that hit the deck about 20 times at Anfield. More likely that Porto and his agent are throwing our name in to up the price. Leeds apparently want him, which suggests that the sale of Raphinha is close.

    Energy Prices

    Fixed tariffs are far higher than the flexible ones, but the flexis are susceptible to the price cap. From what I've seen, most providers are still keen on retaining customers rather than pursuing new ones, so you can find fixed renewal tariffs that, while in all likelihood still more than what you were on before the shit hit the fan, are closer to the current flexi prices rather than the current fixed prices on offer. I'm on a fixed deal for £117/month but that ends in September. I've factored in the possibility that I'll be looking at £200/month minimum from then, so just need to decide whether to go flexi or fixed.

    TLW Deathpool 2022

    His Look North co-presenter Amy Garcia announced the news live on TV. Poor girl was in bits. Gration was a TV regular when I used to live in Sheffield. To be honest, I thought he was at least in his 60s back then.

    Miscellaneous LFC Stuff...

    McMahon's contribution was fantastic with that one.

    He just needs him to tactical foul the opposition as soon as the ball is lost break up play.

    Women's World Cup

    Is it to ensure all the players give their blood, sweat and tears for the cause?

    Happy Birthday Dr Nowt

    Happy 8th birthday mate. I assume you're 8, going by the name Ben.

    Beige bands and artistes

    Boyz II Men. They had the harmonies down pat and were hugely successful (especailly Stateside) but all their stuff was boring as fuck.

    Boris the Biff waffled on about Vimto then.

    Your obscure season highlight

    The Porto keeper running in treacle while chasing back to try and keep out Bobby's pearoller was a fine comedy moment. Skill moment is Mo's studs on the ball and shimmy to get away from the first Watford player when he scored his second brilliant solo goal. Less obvious than the skill to beat Bernardo Silva in the build up of his goal of the season against City, but still a piece of sheer impudence that in a single moment pulled Watford's entire defence right out of shape.

    Because they are talented but inconsistent as fuck, and their defence has been a bit Keystone Cops since the set-up of Piszczek, Subotic, Hummels and Schmelzer was split up.

    Still, the wrong (or no) reinforcements could be cause for Regret.
  15. Dogging from Car Share. Not one scene but a slow-build to what the term actually means over the course of the episode. Painful naivety to brilliantly blunt explanation to a gut-busting pay-off at the end.

    Ben Davies

    Which club?

    Goodbye Mane

    So many brilliant goals and moments, and he has undoubtedly been a key cog in our renaissance under Klopp. One of the things I loved was his mimicry of others' goal celebrations, especially Bobby's. Bobby would do that Capoiera kick and then you'd see Sadio with a massive grin on his face doing a deliberately half-baked version behind him.

    Nike deal

    That is not the new 3rd kit. The main colour and trim colours are correct (as per that ASOS photo on the previous page), but the design on the front is different, and the collar design on the one above is what Nike were giving everybody after the last World Cup. Apparently the kit will have the same swirl marks as the white away kit posted above. As with our new home kit, all of Nike's new kits have that rounded off cut between underarm and collar.

    Summer 2022 Transfer Thread

    In recent years, we've made a habit of putting it out there that we aren't making additions to certain positions even though it appears counter-intuitive. We've then gone out and brought someone in for precisely those positions. By putting it out there that we aren't actively looking for recruitments does 2 things. Firstly, our recruitment team can work on things in the background, and secondly, the players we do have (the younger players in particular) are given the impression that the club still wants them and that they'll be involved.

    Sadio Mane

    Looks to be just a matter of time before Bayern come in with an acceptable offer for him. I would wish him all the best (apart from if/when he plays against us obviously) as he has been brilliant for us and is certainly one of the catalysts for the team and club we've become over the past 6 years. Considering I had my doubts when we were first linked with signing him from Southampton, where I thought he was yet another highly talented but inconsistent player who would not help us to kick on, he has turned out to be an exceptional footballer and an exceptional person given what he has done for the people of his country. A far cry from the fellow countryman we signed 20 years ago.

    Man City - the new bitters?

    Bit rich of La Liga to complain about the oil clubs pricing others out of the market. La Liga as a whole has been complicit in allowing the likes of the El Clasico duo to ride roughshod over the rest financially thanks to highly dubious backing from the government and/or financial institutions. Only belatedly have they staged any sort of intervention over Barcelona's financial situation in particular. I can guarantee that La Liga (and their gobshite president Javier Tebas) would have no quibbles if players like Mbappe decided to play there for the sort of stupid money the oil clubs are throwing at them, or if Barcelona were able to continue indulging Messi.
  23. If it features a couple, the woman will get knocked up and be heavily pregnant throughout the renovation. The kid may even have surfaced before the end. And the woman will not bitch and moan about having to live in a caravan because they sold their old house to pay for the new one.
