    Things You Found Out Today That Surprised You?

    5 Weeks to Christmas. Probably more dismay than surprise to be honest.

    Kirkby Training Complex

    Couldn't find a thread for it so thought I'd put this up Great Line from Klopp(love the man). “This will be the headquarters of Scouse football, if you want,” Liverpool start construction on £50m training ground to replace Melwood Jurgen Klopp says the start of construction of Liverpool’s new £50 million training facility represents a "big statement" by the club as they continue forward momentum on and off the pitch. Building work has begun to merge the first team and Academy on one site at Kirkby. The development will be complete in time for the start of the 2020-21 season, Liverpool’s senior squad leaving their current site at Melwood where the first team has trained for over 60 years. Klopp took part in a ceremony at the building side as the constructors moved in, joking he was confident he will still be in charge at Liverpool when the switchover is complete. “It's really a big statement of the club, of the owners,” said Klopp. “I'm really happy that we start that because it's not normal in a situation when it's already quite OK because Melwood is a wonderful place. We love it - but bringing it together is the step in the future, which we are all convinced about. “We need it. When I heard we will start in 2020, it's pretty rare that a manager can plan that far, but I'm quite optimistic that I'll be in when we start using the facility. I'm really looking forward to it.” The Liverpool manager has often referred to Melwood as his ‘football HQ’. He extended the phrase to refer to the new site. “This will be the headquarters of Scouse football, if you want,” he said. “I think we are all desperate to get young Scousers through, because it's nice. It's a special club and if you are grown up in that area it already makes you a special person. That we have all these young players is thanks to Alex Inglethorpe (Academy Director) and his team. I know already a few of the U15, U16 players and they will have a big chance to go through. “It's always a difficult path to go, but if we can make it a bit easier, a bit more likely, then we should try everything. This is the first step in that direction.” The construction is an expansion of Liverpool’s current Academy complex, built in 1999, but a 20-minute drive from the first-team base. The club recognised the necessity to ensure all players work on the same site to identify a clearer pathway to the first team. Liverpool will explore naming-rights options ahead of completion. “Getting all our training facilities on one site is a critical step. This allows us to create world-class, state-of-the-art facilities,” said Andy Hughes, Liverpool’s chief operating officer. “It is a big commitment and investment from the owners. If you want to be one of the top European clubs – and stay there – you have to continue to invest. Having the best training ground helps deliver success on the pitch. “This is a critical component of a successful football club.” https://www.telegraph.co.uk/football/2018/09/20/liverpool-start-construction-50m-training-ground-replace-melwood/

    If the rumours about Allison and Bobby are true, I'm going to lose it and offer an inanimate object out. I'm fuming.

    What matters more; the lyrics or the melody?

    Drugs for me Trevor. It depends on what drugs you're taking at the time, that tweeks and unlocks that hub in your creative sub consciousness.

    Do you (or have you ever) smoked cigarettes?

    Who had a catalogue? I don't know anyone who had one.

    Do you (or have you ever) smoked cigarettes?

    None smoker here, bob standard size Silk Cut. The smell of a freshly opened pack of Embassy filter was at the time, a joy. Embassy number 1, as well as Filter had the ciggie equivelant of a Greenshield stamp in them.

    Do you (or have you ever) smoked cigarettes?

    Embassy were a shorter cigarette, though the filter was shorter as well. Regal were smoked by nonces and Noel Edmonds fans(which may be the same thing thinking about it)

    I'm sure I heard from someone they sell them as 19's now, not 20's?

    Do you (or have you ever) smoked cigarettes?

    I've pretty much smoked for the last 38 years. Started with joints, kept on the joints, then added ciggies - Embassy Filter is the greatest cigarette ever by the way - Then eased of the embassy and went on the Silk Cut(yes I know smokers) and then about 10 years ago I packed in smoking a joint and then about 5 years later, I packed in ciggies and moved to vaping. I vape either 3mg or 0mg and don't particularly want, or feel the need to give up. Its only after moving to vaping did I realise I wasn't addicted to the not so fast nicotine, I am addicted to the habit and process of smoking, not the stuff inside the ciggies or the vapour. The odd time I do build up when in certain circles, I've still fuckin got it! It'd take some joint to beat one of my babies.

    Formation options

    Go back to old, old school and whoever is replacing the ones missing, let them put the tops on, of those players missing and wear a beard(Four lions style), to disguise the blag. It'll scare them and we'll win. And I'd rather play goalie in and out, if Allison can't play, than play Mr Honeymoon period is over, in goal.

    Thiago Alcantara

    I know we've only had brief glimpses of him, but he was made for that second half yesterday. Convinced we would of won that with him in the team. When we get pressed, we need someone who is comfortable in tight situations with the ball at his feet he's that player and for me, he would of passed us through them and got us back on track to where we where in the first 30 minutes. Hope he's fit a raring for Leicester.
  15. Few points from me that you may want to consider for next time: The tomatoes look like they've given up. The sausages look so bad that one of them feels so embarrassed it has tried snuggling up next to the abomination that is a potato based product on a breakfast plate, to get away from the rest of the sausages. Simon Weston doppelganger Eggs. A potato based product on a breakfast plate Ponce cut on the toast Fat, masquerading as bacon All in all, the word moribund, springs to mind.
