    As a collective, the current bunch of referees are just a dreadful shower and are hardly likely to improve in any way given that there’s never any sanction for their ineptitude. 


    Time for the Premier League to bring in ten competent and physically fit referees from continental Europe, pay them a six figure salary and let them get on with the job. 

    When I watch the odd game with my missus' dad he always asks me why all British refs are fat and bald. 


  2. I went to my local barbers yesterday.


    For the last year my missus has been cutting my hair. Before that it had been some proper old school place with a Bolivian fella that charged six euros (he apologised to everyone when he put it up from five). He employs two others. A middle aged Pakistani man who hasn't really bothered to learn Spanish and is made up when I'm there as he can speak to someone in his particular brand of English (I have no idea what he's saying bar picking out the names of the odd 1980s Pakistani cricketer). His other employee is a young local lad who turns up late every day then has a kip in one of the seats and routinely has to be jolted back to live in order to actually cut someone's hair. 


    Anyway, this scene of serenity sadly ended with covid. I think it has been open for some of the last year but as I no longer live in the city I didn't fancy, and at times was restricted from, travelling. 


    So yesterday, after the missus finally decided she couldn't be fucked to do it any more, I ventured in to a place in my town. The more "old man" type places which I would feel considerably more comfortable in are apparently all pretty slack re covid measures so I was stuck with braving it and going somewhere a bit more "modern". Having made an appointment the previous day, I turned up and was greeted by "Saúl" who had what appeared to be a giant iced gem on his head. He had two other lads, neither of whom looked older than about 13, cutting hair as well. The three people having their hair cut, all aged between about 16 and 21, were all having exactly the same hair cut done - Peaky Cunt, I imagine it's called. 


    The older of the two children ended up cutting my hair and having made it abundantly clear that if he makes me look anything like his previous customer I'll disembowel him with his own scissors, he reluctantly agreed and set about giving me pretty much the same haircut my missus does but in about a quarter of the time. 


    I felt about 83 in there. The music, the conversations about some famous TikTok cunt, and of course the identikit League One footballer haircuts. Hideous.

    Never known in all my years us to have so many injury prone players and others just not contributing.

    It actually reminds me of when we used to bring N'Gog on for the last ten minutes of games. 


    Because we've never had the spending power of United, Chelsea or City consequently it always feels like we're half a season away from everything being utterly shite.

    We need a starting centre half and an attacking mid plus a striker option for me. We have players we can sell if we’re not greedy. The injury prone players and those not contributing can go. Rather have Stewart on the bench than Origi and one of the young midfielders before Chamberlain and probably Keita.

    Yeah, I'd much rather we had 15/16 top class players and a load of kids from the ressies if need be than have 11/12 top class players and a dozen injury prone mid table players.

    And that’s the crux of the matter, they are. We absolutely can’t take anymore injury prone players, it’s killing us, fitness record should be the second consideration when buying a player after “are they any good” and it should be of equal importance.


    Wijnaldum is going to go, and Milner will be 47 so probably will go as well. I think he should. Been fantastic for the mentality of the squad over the last few years, but frankly he isn't good enough any more.


    This lot are all either nowhere near good enough, will never be good enough, or are always injured - Adrian, Karius, Matip, Grujic, Wilson, Awoniyi, Ojo, Woodburn, Origi, Keita, and Oxlade-Chamberlain.


    This lot are either probably not good enough, probably not good enough yet, we don't know if they're good enough yet, or they seem unfancied by Klopp - Kabak, Davies, Phillips, Tsmikas, Shaqiri, Minamino, N Williams, R Williams, Elliot.


    Huge question marks over Firmino as well.


    So we're likely to start next season, before we've signed anyone, with this lot who are thought to be good enough by most people. Or rather, most people will think most of them are good enough. There would be reasonable consensus if we took a poll (possibly not one or two of them) - Alisson, TAA, Robertson, VVD, Gomez, Fabinho, Thiago, Mane, Salah, Henderson, Jones, Jota, Kelleher. 


    13 players. One of which is a young back up keeper, another a 20 year old central midfielder, one a centre back who by the age of 23 has already had a couple of long term injuries, one a seemingly bona fide world class central midfielder who looks a bit lost in our set up. Also, most of our best players are nearly 30. Not really a huge issue playing wise yet, but you know full well the owners will be thinking about who they can still get big money for.



    Apologies for the waffly FM type post, but I think we are either going to have very similar problems next season as we've had this, possibly a little less so as you have to hope we won't have quite such horrendous luck, or we're going to need to be pretty bold this summer. I fear we won't be, and can see a squad which just isn't quite strong enough in terms of depth and balance, crumbling a bit like this season.

    Having had less than 10% of Goldman Sachs staff in the office throughout 2020, David Solomon said that remote working did not suit the working culture at the bank.


    “I do think for a business like ours, which is an innovative, collaborative apprenticeship culture, this is not ideal for us. And it’s not a new normal. It’s an aberration that we’re going to correct as soon as possible,” he told a conference on Wednesday.


    Strange way of spelling "cunt".

    'We have no money to buy the players we need so I have to pretend I have the squad I want' is what he's really saying. I'm not sure why he's using 10 signings as a number but that will never happen anyway as it just makes things more difficult for players to gel. 

    I suppose he's unlikely to say "Half of the squad are either fucking shite or complete sick notes"

    Dortmund the 5th biggest club in the world? Bigger than us? I can't take that list seriously at all.


    I would include Ajax above such powerhouses as Shalke. 


    I appreciate its specific metrics but still. 

    That can only be on having a huge stadium which they fill. 


    Ajax are a bigger club than everyone bar Bayern in Germany. And everyone in the UK bar us and United.

    I'm convinced these fuckers look back on Victorian times as some kind of halcyon era when Britain was great etc. and are doing their best to take us back there.

    Worse, a lot of the population do. 


    Tories look back to a time where people like them were still fucking rich but poor people knew their fucking place and didn't expect things like weekends or schools.

    Just had the Pfizer Vaccination, to say I'm over the moon is an understatement.


    I've lost me dad and a match going mate in the last 8 weeks, to this bastard virus and getting this vaccination, is as much to give me mam some comfort that she's not going to be left on her own, than it is for me bird and the kids.


    A well done and a big thank you to the scientists and a gigantic fuck off, to this shitehawk self serving Tory government. 





    Sorry to hear that, mate. Happy you've had the jab now though.

    I live in a small village so I just run on this footpath that extends out 2 miles, for anything 4 miles or shorter. >4 and its county roads.

    Ah, ace.


    I live on the edge of a town so it's easy enough for me as well.

    Like Mudface said, there wasn’t a single celebrity or ‘alternative’ opinion aired. The van Tulleken brothers are exceptional communicators

    I wonder how popular it was.


    You have to think these things are dictated by the numbers.
