  1. Last season's memories are being trampled underfoot by dreadful football.

    Everton (H) Match Thread

    I thought the defence was solid. Erm that's it. It was a piss poor, weakened Everton team and we couldn't score from open play.

    Keeper is a word of woollybacks and southerners. Goalie is the proper terminology.

    West Ham vs Liverpool, 20th September 2014

    I like our new long ball tactics. It's got everyone fooled.

    Rate the last TV Show you watched

    My favourite telly show ever. I'm sort of envious that you get to see it all for the first time. It's amazing how underrated it is. 10.10. Twin Peaks - watched the first three episodes. It's as sinister, bonkers and oddly "too normal" as I remember. 9/10.

    Appreciating Daniel Agger (ESPN article)

    An excellent player. Such a shame that A) he was injury prone and B. he didn't win more trophies here. Did he own a couple of bars on Lark Lane? I saw him there a couple of times. It'll be weird with him gone. And if/when Skrtel goes.

    Boardwalk Empire

    He was brilliant, proper headcase. Loved it when he stole (and wore) that hat. I thought series 4 was disappointing but couldn't put my finger on why - all the ingredients were there, just not mixed the right way. Still better than most otehr stuff on telly though.

    THE Sopranos thread

    Just started on series two. I was reading how Livia is based on David Chase's own mum. What a b*tch she must have been. The scene with her and Janice when they're talking about the DNR is priceless.

    Scottish Independence, yay or nay?

    I don't feel any connection to anyone from Widnes right down to the south coast to be honest. So I for one would like to welcome our new Scotch Overlords.

    House fixy-uppy shit

    I know what you mean. But a small part of me sort of misses it in a way. Although I'm sure the neighbours don't miss wagons reversing down the road and dropping off materials at 8am on a saturday. Meant to say, I also had a wood burning stove installed downstairs. Love it.

    House fixy-uppy shit

    Spent a year doing up a house we bought, including - new bathroom, total re-plaster, total rewire, new boiler and new radiators, every piece of wood sanded and glossed, every piece of wallpaper stripped, plastered and painted. Doors dipped and painted, loft emptied out and insulated with some boarding. After a year when all was done we decided to knock the living room wall down to have a big kitchen diner, plus downstairs toilet. Also, sorted out the front and back gardens. And carpeted the stairs and upstairs. All in all cost about £30k. Mortgage value said we'd added £50k to the value, so not bad. Did some of the work ourselves - mostly destruction and decoration (all the stripping and all the painting). Always tried to do that type of stuff instead of paying someone. Left plumbing and electricals to the experts (though they are a mate and a family friend). Plastering and tiling I think really makes a difference to how things look so definitely left to the experts. However, if you just want something doing quick it can be good just to pay someone and get it out the way. Hated - ripping up bathroom tiles; clearing out the loft Quite liked - ripping out the garden and skipping most of it. Kitchen was from Brosna and Built In Appliances (Anfield). Bathroom was from B and Q. Tiles from some place in Old Swan and Beesley's (town/toxteth depot).

    THE Sopranos thread

    Just watched the second to last episode in series one, the one with Isabella (the Italian student/neighbour). Wowzers. I'm moving to Italy.

    September Spiders

    I wouldn't mind so much if they were that big - at least you could keep an eye on them and they couldn't sneak up on you.

    September Spiders

    Had quite a few in ours the last couple of weeks. Nothing massive, but still big-ish. I usually scoop them into a glass and throw them in the garden. If they're in hard to reach places i usually just vacuum them up with the hoover tube. I hate flies (HATE) so at least spiders and me are on the same side. We spent two years doing our house up and i was stripping paint and wallpaper in the small cupboard under the stairs (so tight, cramped, no room to move). I noticed a spider curl up and i (accidentally) flicked it onto the floor. I can still hear the thud it made when it hit the floor. A sickening thud. Also, was clearing out the garden, went inside to take a piss, looked in the mirror and there was quite a big spider on my shoulder/walking onto my neck. I'm not ashamed to say I shrieked like a girl and f*cking jumped around like a loon. And never found it! I don't mind them - but hate it when they take you by surprise.

    THE Sopranos thread

    I watched it when it was first on. Just watching it all again through sky box sets - I'm near the end of series one now and loving it. It's always been my favourite programme (alongside The Shield - don't make me choose). My favourite thing in the whole shebang is Paulie's Godfather car horn in series 1 - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VwyoywYKhLM Reading this book as well - http://www.amazon.co.uk/The-Sopranos-Complete-Book/dp/1933821183 - i've had it for years but only just getting around to reading it.

    Summer Transfers 2014

    I'd like another goalie to put some pressure on Mignolet and/or if he got injured. Falcao. Doesn't concern me really - might mean them taking a few points off our rivals. And when we play them we'll still give them another hiding.

    *Shakes head* Everton again.

    I've heard a couple of blues (including one on City Talk this monring) saying "not many teams will score three against Chelsea". You let in 6 goals at home you stupid d*ckheads.

    Great TV Characters Who Aren't Really Main Storyline

    Seconded. Also, Ralphie, also from The Sopranos.

    Awkward sex / dates

    This is a bit tame compared to some of the tales here. 13 years ago went to Brussels on a jolly. Flew in on the friday, dropped our stuff off at the hostel (not hotel) and went straight out. We'd been drinking from about 11am (including high powered belgian ale). In some bar that night, ended up talking to this algerian girl (white, like french algerian? she was a translator at the european parliament) and went to hers at about 3am. The inevitable happened, straight to her bedroom, hows your father. At this point i've been awake and boozing for about 20 hours. She's giving me a BJ and next thing I know she's looking at me asking if I just fell asleep. I had, no idea how long for, but told her I'd just closed my eyes and to carry on, which she did (what a super trooper!) Afterwards, got a few hours sleep. Woke up - had no idea where I was, and the only thing i knew about the hostel was the name of a metro station nearby. So got a taxi and told the driver, but when we got there I still didn't know where I was. Ended up walking through Brussel's equivalent of Lodge Lane. I was the only white person, wandering around in smart shiny shoes, armani jeans and a paul smith t shirt with a big British Isles logo on, still pissed, dead tired and getting weird looks off the locals. I eventually found the hostel. My mates had gone out and I managed to convince the owner to let me into the room even though he'd never seen me before. Got a couple of hours kip, got up and ended up going to Heysel on my own (in the year 2001 I hadn't thought of bringing my mobile phone on holiday), which was sobering. Seen the girl again on the saturday night at the same bar, did a bit of fooling around outside but nothing major. She ends up sending me postcards (to my house where I still lived with my mum and dad) and ringing me. We had a couple of phone sex sessions but that was it. Weirdly, she must have had some BBC service cos I remember watching some sex scene on telly and she asked me if I was watching the same one as her.

    There's a watch place in Old Swan that does new batteries/repairs - it's on prescott road near the junction of queens drive, next to the post office. They even fix fakes (if it's a fixable problem). Well better than those rip off Watch Doctor places, or Timpson's.

    Wayne Rooney

    Well, on that bombshell, I'll let the man defend himself... "Unbelievable. What do you mean by that? In 35 years, how many clubs have I had? What do you mean do my methods translate? They have translated from Halmstads to Malmo, to Orebo to Neuchatel Xamax, to the Swiss national team, so I find the question insulting. To suggest that because I have moved from one club to another, that the methods which have stood me in good stead for 35 years and made me one of the most respected coaches in Europe don’t suddenly work is very hard to believe.” He rests his case.

    Wayne Rooney

    That's a tight call between rooney and hodgson to be fair. I don't see the big problem. It's not like the England captain is a role model for kids. And it's not like Rooney has a history of sh*gging prostitutes, cheating on his wife, demanding bigger wages, swearing down the telly cameras, or getting sent off.

    Man City Vs Liverpool (August 25th, 2014)

    Well I didn't think we'd play Lucas and Gerrard together at home against Southampton, so stranger things have happened. But now we might have a new striker by Monday anyway...

    Mario Balotelli

    Well three hours ago I thought it was a terrible idea. Now that it's happened I couldn't be more exctied. Football fans are so fickle eh. Roll on Monday!
