    Rickie Lambert

    I don't think there is a thread for him, which I find strange. Anyway, I think he's boss. He's obviously getting on a bit but he is undeniably our best bet up front until we can get someone else in / Sturridge returns. He played well last night, held the ball up, showed a nice understanding with Ste and clearly gives 100%, unlike that other fucking firework exploding crack pot who we should never have signed in the first place. He's no Aguero, but I like him. Discuss.

    Fuck off Tony Pulis

    This guy is a proper helmet. I only saw about a 45 second interview with him after the match tonight and he pissed me off no end. Apart from having his stupid, peaked cap head up Fergie's hole, he proceeded to say that the Britannia was more raucous than Anfield. Now I know they are a bunch of in bred cunts but please Tony. He then observed that we spent big on Suarez and Carroll - not true, net spend Tony. A net spend of nothing really in January, something everybody in the media needs to remeber when talking about the "crazy" money we spent on Carroll. We also got crazy money for ******. A point Rafa almost keeled over trying to make during his time here.
  3. In the interests of karma, I'd have to say Fellaini and Van Persie. They are little snides, constantly elbowing people. Also Pepe, because he's a horrible cunt with no redeeming features.

    The usual suspects will. The rest of us might actually blame the bombers.

    It would seem Turkey has a lot to answer for as well.

    Should Mario stay or should he go

    Cut our losses and run. He's a load of wank. Has the physical attributes to be a world beater but the mentality of a crippled lemming. How he ended up here I'll never know. A few mates said he'd be class, the Kop loves an idol etc etc. I wasn't having it then and I'm not now either.

    From what I can see the Kurds are fighting them near Kurdish areas (Kobane etc) and the Shias take the rest (Anbar province etc). Although I could be wrong.

    Yeah, it's just you said there's no real "them" and I am saying that there is a "them".

    Is there not 50,00 of them, well armed and organised and controlling a couple of hundred thousand square kilometers of Iraq and Syria? I agree with you regarding Bush, but unfortunately we can't turn back the clock on that imbecile's mistakes. As with Al Qaeda, IS has in part become a concept and an ideology and it's very hard to crush an ideology. There will always be lone wolf attacks. The West could arm the Iraqi army better than they are doing but it's very hard because it seems to be the Iranian backed Shias doing all the dirty work thereby fueling resentment from the Sunnis and pushing them ever closer to ISIS.

    I respect that you don't resort to name calling. And I can also see why you draw a tenuous link between the two. I'm just afraid I can't make the connection in the same way you do.

    That's not very nice, Yanis. I hope your 27,636th post is nicer.

    Israel - A Rant

    I have absolutely no time for Israel but do people in general ever consider Israel beyond their shambolic treatment of Palestine? For example, what are their economic policies? How do they treat LGBTs? Etc, etc. Because for all their shithousery, I get the impression that, domestically, they are quite a progressive, liberal nation.

    Pretty much how all your type go when there is some facts laid in front of you.

    You describe "austerity" as if it is the only thing that is happening here. It is a nice catchy buzzword that all the loony left wingers like to use over here. The problem with these people is they have no solution other than to bang their hands and talk about wealth taxes and the like. It's back of a cigarette packet economics and I'm grateful that they aren't in power. They refuse to acknowledge any good that is done. I work my bollocks off and they would tax me even more - even though workers already pay a marginal tax rate of 50/51%. It is a fact in Ireland that a sizeable minority of people don't need to work because of the ridiculous benefits they can claim. The left want to increase these even more at the expense of the working man. As a country, in the mid- to late- 00s we were spending way beyond our means. Something had to give. This was nothing to do with the EU, this is simple Maths. Our public sector pay and welfare rates were through the roof when the crash happened. Granted the bank guarantee and subsequent bailout (which were European led) clearly exacerbated the problem but even way before that we had serious issues as a result of a clueless administration who were buying votes with ludicrous concessions and were wholly reliant on property based taxes to fund the economy.

    I never defended austerity in Ireland, but for a non-rabble rouser like me I give credit to the government for the actions they have taken (or not taken). You clearly have issues with the EU but people in Ireland have short memories regarding the amount of money that we have received from this project over the years. It is run by a bunch of cunts for sure, but nothing's perfect is it. You are very good at selecting depressing stories from a country you don't live in. But I could do a random Google search and find some equally uplifting ones. Anyway, this never started as a defence of austerity on my behalf so I don't want the conversation being steered that way. Regarding another point you make, I'm not sure if Ireland was in a better place than Greece seven years ago but it certainly was in a fucking stinking hell hole of a place that it has thankfully emerged from. However, there is still a lot more to do (people on hospital trolleys, child poverty etc).

    People who go to get out of a lift on the wrong floor and then make a joke about it. Sorry, that's not funny you twat. Maybe you'd be better served watching the little luminous number for the floor you want to get off at instead of wasting two seconds of my day apologising.

    Austerity is, of course, shit. And there are plenty of stories like the one mentioned above. But there are also some good stories in Ireland and it is undeniably in a better place than Greece. So in that respect "slow and steady" beats "banging your hand on the table". It is difficult to compare the peripheral countries in the Eurozone as they are all very different with different underlying reasons for their problems. My only argument with Greece is that blatant corruption and evasion seems to be the root cause of their problems. Try and get your head around the following: "In 2010, the estimated tax evasion costs for the Greek government amounted to well over $20 billion per year." But there are some people who think they shouldn't have to pay any price for this.
