    The shitness of modern football

    Yet another inexorable part of our march to being a 51st state, on a similar note the next time I hear "game changer" I think I'll relay a Glaswegian kiss.

    Why is Rodgers so crap in Europe? Is it his tactical set-up that works well domestically, but is poorly suited to European games?

    Man City - the new bitters?

    I'm not sure one should ever base the mind set of a fan base from internet forums, but there is a kernel of truth regarding city's avid supporters. Of those I know personally a cognitive dissonance has occurred where simultaneously they know the fossil fuel industry that supplies their club's artificially stupendous wealth is damaging our planet and the regime in control of them is utterly draconian and is utilising sports washing to the nth degree to absolve them of human rights abuses/a racial class system, but still they feel victimised and hark back to time where city where a put-upon smaller institution (instead of the rapacious behemoth of today). I partially think this is down to the inherent bonds of loyalty and ties that people have with their football team whether that be through familial circumstance or childhood/adolescent attachment and how things that you always associate with being a fundamental 'good' in your life are difficult to let go or adjust to when they alter. (hyperbole/cod psychology warning) It is reminiscent of families who circle the wagons when one of their own has committed a heinous crime, there is a an avoidance of talking about it and an outward projection that occurs toward an 'other' combined with an inflation of the better aspects of the persons character. While City have played excellent football over the past few years ultimately their influence on the game (like Chelsea before them) is a corrosive one and as per usual our press have not really analysed that to any great degree*. *the fact that the two most successful clubs in English football (Liverpool and Manchester United) greatest ever points total post between either of them has been exceeded by them on two occasions in the past 2 seasons should be something worth noting and should lead to conclusions being drawn or at least commented upon.

    I really want us to get those pricks this year and beat them home and away. In part to wipe away the memory of Kiev/gain revenge, but also to expunge this rubbish.

    Grenfall Tower Fire

    The thing I find most revealing about this is the structure of the inquiry, an actual cover-up of that scale is probably impossible in the period post Hillsborough so instead they decided to structure it so that the fire services gets absolutely lambasted first and the media narrative centres around that and then the cladding and building frame work stuff can wait until later an probably be released to lesser fan fare, I wonder which of these elements of the root cause is directly linked to Conservative party members, government policy decisions and local conservative councillors?

    Arsenal (H) 30/10 League Cup 20:30

    I think we'll run into problems here as Arsenals secondary team have had a lot of experience playing together in the Europa League, which is a pity as I don't want Liverpool to give them a chink of light psychologically at Anfield as they have been woeful since the 5-1 in 2014. Team will probably be the following?: Alisson - I reckon the thinking will be to give the lad more game time Milner Gomez Lovren Hoever Gini- Though I think Klopp will be very tempted to play Lallana in the 6 like he did in pre-season, however that would make our midfield really light Keita Chamberlain Elliot Origi Brewster If we get through this a home tie against Crawley or Colchester would be ideal.

    Summer 2019 Transfer Thread

    Interesting going back to this good post by BeefStroganoff, recently on RAWK of one of the more dissenting/critical of the club voices on the Anfield Wrap, Mike Nevin, indicated that he'd been eased out and doesn't fit as part of the "echo chamber". https://www.redandwhitekop.com/forum/index.php?topic=279444.msg16856142#msg16856142

    Should the UK remain a member of the EU

    Yup this is exactly where they would end up

    Climate change - how arsed are you?

    Not sure why I'm bothering given you've basically outright said you don't believe in peer reviewed science (good luck treating future illnesses with berries by the way), but the line in bold does irritate, surviving as a species does not constitute human civilisation, all you have to do is look at political instability caused by any number of natural disasters or climatic alterations to see that our societies aren't the most robust when coming up against external shocks of this type. Ancient Egypt, the Classical Maya, Hittites, Harappa, Anasazi and innumerate other civilisations bit the dust in large part due to climate forcing's let alone fighting that has recently occurred in Syria, Sudan and Afghanistan. The French revolution was partially sparked by food shortages and famine derived from a Icelandic volcanos eruption, do you reckon crop failure from climate change would have minimal effects? The wind generator thing is mince as well an average onshore wind turbine produces enough power for about 1,500 households in the UK and that is basically 25 years plus of pure clean energy after the first 2.5 years of repaying the carbon deficit of fabrication/construction. Some of the larger turbines they're setting up far exceed this. I agree with you about the nuclear war issue but that increase in likelihood is partially driven by the effects of climate change.

    *Shakes head* Everton again.

    Excellent, thanks for posting this, the state of that pitch like, would probably have been easier playing in wellies.

    *Shakes head* Everton again.

    I think it would actually help them if we won the league, in as much that it might allow them to concentrate on their own team to a greater extent rather than constantly wondering how 'the devils club' can be stopped from achieving their malign ends.

    Climate change - how arsed are you?

    I'm not so sure about the Yacht thing, but certainly the rocketing of house prices in places like Dunedin may be linked to how they are thinking i.e. underground bunkers guarded by drones and laser dogs. It's also one of the reasons they are so keen and in some jurisdictions have had their lackeys pass huge tax cuts for themselves, that in effect for the super-rich is climate change legislation.

    Absolutely dreadful the way the Kurds have been sold down the river (though it was in the pipeline for a long time), no doubt when they are oppressed by another non-aligned regime the west need to overthrow for oil money concern will grow again and 'intervention' to save the Kurds will creep back on the cards.

    To be fair given the number of journalists who were/are opining on the Syrian conflict from comfortable surrounds in Istanbul as a 'Middle east correspondent', your insight would carry as much weight as theirs.

    Global Warming

    Fair fucks to the extinction rebellion people for giving themselves up for a greater cause, I can't help but feel it's all a bit too late in the day, but at least it's mildly inconveniencing some of the richest bawbags in the country.
