    Sciatica

    I used to work for a physiotherapist; we saw loads of patients with sciatica. Just posting here to say that I was going to say a lot of things, but this post is top to bottom excellent and I agree with pretty much every word. To sum up, I'd just say: surgery should be a last resort - you often fix one disc only to start causing problems on the next one, which leads to loads of people who get one fusion, then another, then another and by the time they're 15 years post-their-first-op they can't move their back at all. For some people it can work, but usually you should try everything else first. this doesn't solve the short-term problem but in the long-term it helps a lot to improve core muscle strength to take the load off the joints stay away from chiropractors - you'll meet people that say things like "I love my chiro, he's been treating me for 5 years and I feel amazing every time I leave his office." Yeah, well, you know what? He's not treating the underlying problem, or you wouldn't still have to visit him after 5 years of treatment! Can serve a purpose for short-term pain management but please see an orthopaedic doctor to fix the underlying issue! I don't know why, but some people get huge benefit from steroid injections and it doesn't even touch the problem for others. Worth a try to see if you're in the first group.

    Real Madrid - Champions League (A) 6/4/21 - 20:00

    I have to say that was one of the worst refereeing performances we've seen this season. Every little dive of theirs he bought, every time we went down under similar situations, it was given the other way. Not a really obvious terrible decision in the lot, just 100% of the 50-50s and 60-40s given to Madrid.

    Sick of being Fat

    I don't know what a stone is (something like 6 kg if memory serves?) but at my height I should be about 100 kg (I'm really tall) and I'm way, way over. Like, 30 kg or something. I've started keeping track of all my calorie intake and biking home from work 3x/week. I have the wife drop me off with my bike and then ride home at the end of the day (can't see how people bike TO work; I'd be a sweaty mess all day). The good thing is that at my size, it's like 3200 calories/day to maintain my weight, so I can still eat 2500 and lose weight. I'd love to lose it all at once but right now I'm on pace for about 2kg/month, which is probably healthy and something I can maintain. Hope I can keep it going! Definitely enjoying how much easier it is on the bike - the first few times the 10k ride about killed me, now it feels pretty easy.

    Racism

    Surely the problem is all the times that the top police authorities (and often the police union) have supported the police officer who killed someone in questionable situations? I rather want the ones who testify that their officer behaved illegally and sack them and testify against them to remain in the job. Because if they're replaced, there's a better-than-even chance they'll be replaced by a "circle the wagons" type who will defend anything and everything an officer did, no matter how terrible or racist.

    Nathaniel Phillips

    You taking the piss? Kabak looks to have potential. His first few games were crap, more recently he has looked decent. Overall, he hasn't looked out of place, which is excellent for a 20 year old in the centre of defense for a club as big as we are. I'd say 18m sounds about right, and then I'd give it just better than 50/50 odds it's seen as a successful move in a few years. What can you really say about Phillips? I'm enjoying his little patch of decent play, and I desperately hope he gets us to a CL final, but let's be honest, he's never anywhere near good enough to play for us. I think a few clean sheets, headers and some awesome displays from Fabinho have rather made people forget his level a bit. He never stood out in our U23s, he didn't really look that great in the Bundesliga 2, and to be honest, if we hadn't had this massive injury crisis, he'd never have played for us in an important game. I think the cult-hero thing is fun, but it's moved from people obviously taking the piss about giving him the Balon D'Or to where people are now suggesting (I think genuinely?) that he's worth 18m and it's all a bit unfair to him. He's going to end up in the Championship for 2m, he'll have a decent career for himself and always remember that year when he got to play for the league champions because of a bizarre set of circumstances. Don't go heaping expectations on him like he's going to be sold for 18m or play in the Premier League consistently or anything.

    Transgender stuff - what's going on?

    Like I said, I haven't read it and don't know if I'd agree with it. My issue is more that debate on the issue is being shut down by a private company with zero accountability. What happens if a year from now some hard-left crackpots do a terrorist attack and then Amazon bans any book advocating for socialism? There's absolutely nothing anyone could do about it. But anyway, I think we're well off the topic of transgenderism here so I won't take it further.
  8. Fivethirtyeight now have us at 52% to finish top 4! We were at 27% going into the weekend's games, so that's some swing in our favour.
  9. Always enjoy the bizarre sponsors from some of the smaller clubs. VISIT RWANDA just then behind Jota for his interview. Imagine working for the Rwanda Tourism Board and saying "You know what people want during a pandemic? It's to visit Rwanda. Let's lump all our budget on ads sponsoring Arsenal."
  10. What a bizarre season. Who would have thought that the biggest loss we had from injury wasn't losing van Dijk, but having to move Fabinho out of midfield? He's back where he's supposed to be and we look almost as good as we ever did, even with a Championship-level player replacing van Dijk.
  11. We are crap. Thankfully, Arsenal are much, much crapper.
  12. Yes, I have to say that the statement "Milner can't run" is one I'd agree with. If you need a man to run a marathon, then give him a Ribena and he's your man. But if you need someone to catch up to a pacy attacker when Trent is caught up the pitch, well, then ...

    Other football - 2020/21

    Lille beat PSG today to go 3 points clear at the top of the table. What a crazy season this is, just everywhere results are all over the place. Might see PSG spend 400m to finish 2nd.

    Will we win the Champions League this season?

    If you tried to convince me that we would beat Real Madrid and make it to the semis, I could totally believe that. But if you're trying to convince me that we could beat Chelsea over a two-legged tie AND beat City or Bayern in the final? That I have a much harder team believing. We are shite, don't forget. I actually think we might have a better chance of qualifying for the CL through the league. Or it's very close, at least. Neither one would you have us favourites, but we're more likely to pip Spurs/Everton/West Ham and then see Chelsea or Leicester collapse than we are to win the CL.

    Transgender stuff - what's going on?

    A well-known political philosopher wrote a book about the issues with this and Amazon banned it from being sold because he raised some of the issues you're talking about here, citing several studies of people who received puberty blockers. They sell Mein Kampf, but heaven forbid we even question this particular issue! I didn't read it, and I'm not certain I would have agreed with his conclusions, but it's actually rather frightening to me that a private company can essentially use their massive platform to remove someone else's speech. I mean, he's free to sell it elsewhere, but what happens the next time someone approaches a publisher to say they'd like to write a book about this issue? No chance any publisher is going to put something out that won't be carried by Amazon!
