    Rest of The World - Bands - FINAL - Kraftwerk vs AC/DC

    I've never been a real fan of either of them, but let's have this right. Kraftwerk were one of the most innovative acts of the 20th century, and inspired not just numerous artists but whole fucking genres like synth pop, hip hop and house music. AC/DC were a shit Status Quo and the only cunt they ever inspired was Richard Rameriz.

    Fuck off Frank Lampard

    Ironic that, judging by the Twitter reaction anyway, the majority of the fans calling for his head are the glory hunting fucks that only supported Chelsea because of the trophies that Lampard helped them get in the first place. Same mob that turned on Maureen in a big way when he looked past his sell by date. Still, the pair of them are absolute cunts so, while I can question the fans loyalty, their judgement of character is beyond question.

    Like you, I would like to think we've been looking at long-term first team CBs for at least a year now, and I'm sure we have. But, I'm not confident that any of those targets are available now, even at a premium price. And, to answer someone else upthread, we shouldn't have let Lovren go without a replacement. Even generously accepting that having three CBs out at the same time might be unforeseeable, it's certainly not unlikely that both Gomez and Matip could be out at the same time given their records and that we'd be playing with a makeshift CB pairing. It seems to be a failure of foresight on our part not to have recognised that, or at least dealt with it.

    Sorry, I misread you there. But what if we can't get the quality we and Klopp in particular wants right now? It doesn't matter that we've known for months that we need someone if no-one of that quality becomes available in January, even if we're willing to pay over the odds for him. I'm just looking at a hypothetical situation whereby Klopp/Edwards etc are faced with, despite their best efforts to find a quality replacement in Jan, the choice between laying out some exorbitant fee for someone they don't particularly want, and who they don't think is good enough for us, and that hinders their prospects of getting a long-term target in the Summer, or sticking with what they've got. I don't think you'll find anyone here arguing that, if real quality is available, we should trust the likes of a half-formed Matip, Williams and Philips to get us through and then go again with Gomez and Matip next season. Just that spunking, possibly big, money on someone who might not even prove to be a meaningful upgrade on what we've got smacks of desperation and short-termism.

    Wasn't January, mate. We really could do with a quality first choice centre-back, money no issue, given both Gomez and Matip can't be relied upon. The issue is, is there one that we want, one that suits our defensive system (high line, play out from the back) and is available? Or do we buy second best to plug a gap (which some seem to be happy with) but at a ridiculous price that might prevent us from getting someone on our radar in the Summer perhaps? Unless there's someone we've already scouted and enquired about who's both willing to come, and their club are willing to sell in this window, I think the club's thinking would be to hold tight with what we've got, rather than get a mediocre, ill-fitting and likely costly replacement. And I can see their logic.

    Georginio Wijnaldum

    He's off. I realised that as soon as I flipped through the official 2021 LFC calendar that someone brought me (hopefully as a joke) for Christmas, and saw that Ox had a month but no Gini.

    Naby Keita

    I remember the days when I used to get excited by a Naby return to fitness update. Now I just feel like that old dear who got told about another election in the offing.

    *Shakes head* Everton again.

    I saw that yesterday on Twitter and noted that it took about two replies in before those cunts started lobbing in with the 'Heysel' comebacks. They don't really do football banter, that lot, probably 'cos they don't have much in the way of wit (that and the fact they don't have much in the way of achievements to throw back at us - that long list of firsts aside). They're like the fanbase equivalent of the twat in the school playground that just says 'your nan, innit' whenever someone mocks him.
