    The Amazon is Burning

    Fires threatening the town where my mother lives in Bolivia. It's like Armageddon down there right now, no one has any idea what to do about it.
  2. It'll be either Lijnders or Nagelsmann IMO. If, that is, it happens in 2022. If Klopp decides to stay later then it will depend on a lot of factors, not least who is available the summer he goes.
  3. So the other night Rennes beat PSG with a 16-year old starting in the centre of their midfield, holding his own against the likes of Verratti and I've decided we need to scrap any pursuit of Sancho or Mbappe or Havertz, who are now old news. Welcome to the summer of Eduardo Camavinga.

    S**thampton (A) Premier League (17/8/19)

    I thought he was decent, nothing special, but there's a compilation going around twitter of every touch and having watched that, I have to say he was a lot better than I originally thought. Did a lot of important defending as well as helping us get the ball up the pitch a lot.

    VAR shit show 19/20

    I don't understand why the controversy today is about VAR. VAR isn't relevant here - all it did was allow the referee to have a video to spot a violation of the rules in the buildup to Jesus' goal. The problem is the change in the handball rule. Has nothing to do with VAR, you could have VARred that all day long last season and it would have been a goal. The issue is the rule change, not the system that allows us to more accurately enforce it.

    S**thampton (A) Premier League (17/8/19)

    Obviously it's a good result, considering the circumstances especially. But it's fair to say that the performances so far this season are a bit scary. Our defending hasn't looked anything like the standard it was last season. Norwich got chances, Chelsea got chances, and now Southampton got chances. Last season we'd give up maybe one half-decent chance a game and then maybe 5-6 long shots. This season it's early doors but we're giving up two or three good chances per game. Haven't been punished yet with a loss or draw but if we carry on defending like this it won't be long. Hopefully Keita will be fit soon, I happen to think his interceptions and tackles are a big part of what's missing. Last season Henderson and Milner seemed to cover it but Milner looks a level below and Henderson hasn't quite been himself either so far. Get a midfield of Fabinho/Keita/Wijnaldum, or maybe Ox in there, and we will hopefully start to sort most of this out.

    Alisson Becker

    Get well soon. Please.
  8. If you told me that was a part of the punishment that the judge issued in the civil rape case against him, I might believe you.

    Summer 2019 Transfer Thread

    Coutinho probably done us more service by leaving even than he did here at the club. Not just the money we got for him, either, I'm talking about the effect he'll have on any player thinking of leaving Liverpool. Next summer, even this summer, when Barca and Real Madrid send their agent contacts behind the scenes to start whispering into our players' ears "come over to Spain, it's sunny, play in the biggest clubs in the world and make 300k/week" they'll be like "yeah, I've seen what can happen and I want no part of it." The so-called "allure of the Spanish big clubs" that was supposedly impossible to turn down is looking easier and easier to turn down by the day. If I'm Mane (or van Dijk, or Salah, or whoever) I'm thinking "Jurgen's made me one of the highest-rated players in world football, why would I want to risk that all falling apart as it could if I move?"

    So your worldview disagrees with theirs, no? Who gets to decide whose worldview is right? The state? And what punishment do they mete out to those who disagree? I'm telling you, mate, that way lies madness. Everyone thinks their way of looking at the world is the right one. Unless we tolerate each other's differences, the only other solution is at the end of a gun. In my opinion, we can force them to serve every customer as an equal, no problem. But we cross the line when we tell someone they have to participate in something they find morally repugnant.

    We completely agree that the business can NEVER be allowed to pick and choose whom they serve; surely that part of my post was crystal clear. The business in question, however, has stated that they have no problem doing business with LGBTQ people. They would happily make them a birthday cake, for example. Their issue is simply with being forced to participate (and here we must be very clear - the decoration of a cake is an artistic act, according to this argument, not simply a sale of a neutral product). The swastika argument was just to crystalise it in our minds here. Obviously a message promoting gay marriage is not morally equivalent to a swastika in the worldview of any of us reading this. My point was to help understand what we're saying when we say that the baker has to participate, regardless of his/her religious beliefs or worldview. Imagine that you worked in a flower shop, and someone came in wanting you to make a tasteful arrangement that they could take to the Aryan Brotherhood meeting they were going to, in Nazi colors of red and white carnations with black ribbons. I think all of us would refuse, correct? As in, you might be happy to make the arrangement, but as soon as they tell you what it's for and what it symbolises, then I think we all know how we would react. I would personally throw them out of my shop.

    Summer 2019 Transfer Thread

    Honestly I think it was a case of mistaken identity, mate. Barry was thrashing around arguing with all and sundry, you made one comment and I think lifey got confused about who had said what. Reading it back I'm pretty sure he was actually reacting to the long argument that was happening before your post, rather than you personally. Admittedly he did call you a dickhead which was well out of line, given your post, but I don't think he actually meant you.

    Summer 2019 Transfer Thread

    I don't think anyone, not the most rabid FSG fan out there, would disagree with this sentiment. My question is why does anyone think that the two don't go together? Which do you think makes FSG more money over the long-term, money invested in the club, leading to us winning trophies, or money taken out of the club, leading to them having fatter bank accounts? Because Hicks & Gillett thought it was the latter, and then after they'd stolen as much as they could they were proven wrong when they sold the club for roughly the same that they'd paid for it. FSG, on the other hand, recognise that the way to make the most money possible from Liverpool is to win trophies. There's a reason we're now worth 1.5 billion (latest estimates), a seven-fold improvement on their investment. It's not because they've taken money out of the club! It's because they've expanded the Main Stand, invested in the playing squad, brought in a top manager, and we're winning trophies again. So yes, the club exists to make money. And the best way to make money, in the long-term, is to win trophies. Therefore it is ludicrous to suggest that FSG don't care about winning trophies. And yes, this summer is a bit of a mystery as to why we didn't spend anything, but they've certainly earned the benefit of the doubt over the past 10 years and if Jurgen isn't bothered, well, then neither am I.

    I know that you're a WUM and should really just be ignored, but this statement is just typical of the whole troll oeuvre you've cultivated on this forum. *says something ludicrous, or at the very least highly controversial* "this is clearly a fact, don't even bother arguing" *proceeds as if he's no established an incontrovertible argument and then proceeds to base even further arguments on this bedrock* You've done it so many times now that it's kind of your signature move.

    I think that we have to be really, really careful before we go down this road where we force everyone to believe the same things. The American version of this from a few years ago basically came down, legally speaking, to whether the baker was protected by free speech laws to allow him his own artistic expression on the cakes he baked, or whether the couple who ordered the cake was protected by non-discrimination laws. In that case, the baker showed that he was happy to make cakes for LGBTQ people, and had done many times, but that he objected to being forced to participate in a ceremony that violated his religious conscience. It appears that with the cake order in question, this cake was intended to do exactly the same thing. It's not even a wedding cake, just a message specifically supporting gay marriage. Most of you will disagree with the baker's objections, but to me that's beside the point. I think he should have the right to decline to print orders he finds morally distasteful. I would imagine he would do the same if someone came in and ordered a swastika cake, or whatever. I would say the same no matter what it was - if a Muslim baker refused to put a star of David on a cake, or any similar situation, then that's fine by me. I would just tell the customer that they should go order it somewhere else. It would obviously be a completely different matter if the business were refusing to serve any LGBTQ person at all, but since it seems they were happy to let him order a different cake, the objection was simply to decorating that particular cake.
