    Also I had the Pfizer one today through work (I’m a nurse). My next dose isn’t until 30th March. I just wanted to get one into me. Would’ve been great to have second dose 3 weeks later but that’s not going to happen now.

    My Auntie is 73 is based in West Derby and had her first dose yesterday. The Pfizer one. A place off Smithdown rd apparently. She only had it done as there was a surplus left over so got a call late in the day.

    Giving up the booze

    I decided to quit for good in April 2019. Had numerous failed attempts over the years. I was a massive piss head and druggie for most of my adult life. It’s definitely the best thing I’ve ever done. I have to pinch myself sometimes although I am aware I can’t be complacent. Hitting my 40s. Being a father to a little girl. Actually feeling your health deteriorate. All these things transpired to staying stopped this time. In the past 2 years I’ve lost my Dad. The pandemic. We’ve won the league and European Cup. Christmas. Birthdays. Holidays abroad. When I was using and drinking it would’ve been unthinkable to go through any of that without having a bevvy. But somehow I have. My work life has been transformed. Got a promotion last year after years of treading water. My focus now is mainly on my kid and work. My social life is pretty much non existent compared to in my 20s and 30s. That’s ok though. I’m actually content. I’ve got mates who are in their 40s with families and jobs etc that still get smashed at weekends. On the lemo etc. Just looks fucking desperate to me now.

    Best Bond Film?

    Claudine Auger. Domino in Thunderball. She is fucking lovely in that film. Bahamas location. Sharks in swimming pool. It’s got all the ingredients.
  5. Been catching up on a few box sets I missed out on as had a bit of time off. Normal People - 8/10 really enjoyed it The Last Dance - 8/10 really enjoyed it Banshee - 8/10 this seemed a bit ropey at first but as it’s progressed I’m actually getting into it now. Also finished the Serpent last night. I enjoyed it. Mad what you could get away with back in the 70s.
  6. I’m not at the knicker wetting stage yet for a number of reasons. Frustrating as it is dropping points against shite like Fulham, Newcastle, Brighton, West Brom and Everton. We’ve been incredibly spoilt the last two seasons accumulating nearly 200 points. That is a freakish amount and unsustainable in the long term. Even our best teams over the years weren’t operating at that level. We have been very unlucky this season with injuries. Even if the Mancs win their game in hand we are still top I believe. We are still in the Champions league unlike them. We have recent experience of being in a close title race. Unlike them. We have a world class manager. Unlike them. Thiago even in that brief cameo looks sublime. It’s not as bad as is being made out on here tonight. We do need to sign a centre back though. If we don’t then yeah I’m all in on the hysterical fanny bus. Not quite there yet though.

    Georginio Wijnaldum

    Fucking immense tonight. It will be like watching Alonso fuck off for peanuts if ( when )he goes. He’s playing some of the best football of his Liverpool career at the moment.

    Spurs (H) Premier League - 16/12/20 - 20:00

    I celebrated that goal so much I didn’t even realise there’d been a VAR check until now. I ran out the living room screaming and couldn’t watch the last 2 minutes. I’m so glad. What the fuck are they playing at? It’s really shit that VAR has taken that unbridled joy out of goal celebrations. Not tonight though. I couldn’t help it!

    Clint Eastwood

    Great soundtrack to both those films as well. Lalo Schifrin doing his thing.

    Gerard Houllier

    Really sad news. Some great memories. Especially that sweltering hot afternoon robbing the cup off Arsenal in Cardiff. Hard to believe time has flown by so quickly. Although 72 isn’t that old these days. Heart goes out to his family. Legend.

    Shoes and boots

    Red Wing for me as well. The most expensive pair of footwear I’ve ever bought but they’ll probably last me forever.

    The GF book thread

    Reading The Power of The Dog at the mo. About Mexican drug cartels. It’s also touching on the CIA involvement in smuggling cocaine to fund Nicaraguan contras in fighting commmunism in the 80s. So revisiting themes from the tv series Snowfall which I know loads on here love (including me). Really enjoying it.

    Great debut, crap (Liverpool) career

    Stuart Downing was garbage. Shocking waste of money. Don’t know what the fuck Kenny was thinking there. I’m fairly sure I saw Joe Allen make his debut as well. A 3-0 hammering away at West Brom. I can’t remember if he was any good or not. I just remember thinking he looked tiny.
