  1. After reading that exchange I’ve been left with a look on my face that I imagine is similar to the one on my grandads face when he overheard my nanna’s hairdresser talking about his upcoming wedding to his boyfriend.

    Everton (H) FA Cup - 05/01/2020 - 16:01

    The fume if we beat these with a severely weakened team will be exquisite. I’m not ashamed to say that I’d be tempted to take the day off work tomorrow just to spend all day on GOT bathing in their rage. It’ll be up there with the Origi last minute game when one of the old Bitters in the pub went from basically being about to light a flare to literally rolling a tear in about 3 seconds. Always a happy memory when I’m feeling down.

    Rate the last film you watched...

    Watched Parasite last night. Very, very enjoyable. More South Korean quality shining through. I love how the direction of the film changes and keeps you guessing all the time. Slots onto my same top shelf as ‘I saw the devil’ (favourite film of all time) and ‘The Chaser’ 8.5 out of 10.

    Happy Christmas to about 5 of you

    I say Merry Christmas to Rico even though he divides opinion. Keeps things an interesting read having an opposing view to the norm. Also enjoy his contributions to the middle class generalisation thread. Sounds like my street where he lives. The Mrs has proper joined in with the keeping up with the Jones’s. Wasn’t good enough to buy the Christmas lights from Home and Bargain like normal. Had to go to a posh garden centre this year so we didn’t look like ‘the pov house’

    You’re not kidding, I’ve took a days leave from work especially.

    That’s a great appointment for them on the face of it but it seems weird to say the least. Just doesn’t sit with the type of role he normally takes but it’ll be interesting. Not going to begrudge them showing ambition. He may not be as good as he was but if the alternatives are Moyes and his ilk then you’d have to be happy with that.

    January 2020 Transfer Thread

    Decent player but looks like he literally bothers his arse once a week to play football and the rest of the time he’s getting smashed on holiday. Don’t blame him but we could do better

    The shitness of modern football

    Could have put this in the City thread but I suppose it’s just an example of what happens no matter who people support. It’s this ridiculous support for footballers and attempts to justify everything they do just because they play for the team ‘you’ support. This Sterling thing, you want to see that Bluemoon ‘Raz should tell them to fuck off’ ‘Southgate’s a cunt’ ‘Gomez should be sent home as well’ Same for Bernardo Silva, because he plays for City they defend him, if he played for someone else they’d be wanting him nailed to a wall. I understand that it’s just tribalism and people will talk about ‘defending your own’ but it’s people not accepting the possibility it might be that the player is a cunt no matter who he plays for. Do they think if they got in trouble that any of the players would give even the smallest turd about defending them. It’s just a job to most players and I bet they think fans are just oddballs that are there to be tolerated. And I know that’s not all, you see and hear of some doing good work in the community or being generally nice lads but these City fans cannot be deluded enough to think Sterling cares about them. Also, I cringe when I see people type ‘Raz’ as though he’s their mate.

    There is also some spectacular point missing going on. Nobody is ‘brushing Heysel under the carpet’, it’s just that a massive portion of supporters now won’t have been alive, let alone been old enough to have had anything to do with it, It also happened in a foreign country so it just isn’t ‘there’ in front of people like Hillsborogh so of course it isn’t brought up as often. There is something quite horrible about calling people murderers etc for things they had no control over. Its like they expect every Liverpool fan to walk round acting like that German bloke off Harry Enfield. Sad acts.

    Other Football - 2019/20

    I feel genuinely sorry for him. For me he should have doubled down and told them to go and fuck themselves again. Nothing makes me cringe harder than people thinking footballers are fair game to be abused just because they’re well paid. I’m interested to know what the earnings threshold is for it to become acceptable for people to abuse you in your job and threaten you and your family. When supporters say ‘we pay his wages’, so what? Wherever you work the customers pay your wages. If you had a particularly shit day in your job I’d imagine you’d frown upon a customer marching in and threatening you or your family. It probably has gone unnoticed as well but I’m sure he didn’t mean ‘fuck off’ to every fan, just every tosser that was booing him off. Even if he’s crap, that’s not even his fault, the manager shouldn’t be picking him. I’ve hated seeing players turning out for Liverpool and fumed about them but apart from moaning about them on forums or to mates that’s where it ends. Wankers. Says it all that hardly anyone who leaves there has got anything good to say about the club.

    Jamie apologises to evra for Suarez t shirt protest.

    Probably a good example of tribalism in football. I’d imagine there were a lot of Liverpool fans hoping he didn’t do it but mostly so that he wouldn’t get banned and a lot of Man U fans hoping he did so he would get banned. The percentage who actually care about the feelings and offence caused to the players will probably be pretty low if people are being honest with themselves. You saw it with the Firmino / Holgate thing last year. It was pretty clear nothing had been said as the cameras showed the whole thing and then an investigation on top but when you looked on GOT it was like some were gutted when he got cleared rather than be happy it was shown to not actually have happened For what it’s worth, I do think Suarez said something he shouldn’t and deserved the ban but then Evra responded with something similar (which I’ve said before I’m sure he admitted) and that should have been dealt with as well. As I’ve said before, it’s the double standards. The Suarez thing also prompted the (accidentally as I think they were being serious) greatest post ever on rawk if someone wants to try to dig it out. Something about the players all in a circle and then out pops a smiling Glen Johnson holding a sign saying ‘our Luis is a friend to all races’

    At the time I was more annoyed at the double standards that seemed to apply. I had no issue with Suarez being banned if he had used the words but Evra (from memory) admitted also using derogatory terms about Suarez’s ethnicity so if true they were both equally as guilty and it didn’t seem right that one got painted as the criminal and the other as the victim. Poor all round though. It was great though when Evra and Ferdinand tried to take him out after the none shake of the hands incident and he dodged and they clattered each other instead.

    Couple of decent ones on the last couple of days. End of Watch - 8/10. Really good police one with Jake Gylenhall and Michael Pena. Very enjoyable, decent action and story. Lucky Number Slevin 9/10. Loved this when it was released over 10 years ago and it holds up. I’ll even allow the twist being not that surprising a pass. Solid entertainment and held my attention which is rare.

    What constitutes the perfect cooked breakfast?

    Sorry but it was for work so nowhere near. That’s Hardwicke Hall in Hartlepool. That was a quality breakfast and to be fair the hotel itself was very good. Very olde world Manor House and dinner the night before was also excellent. I think it was 70 BandB with 2 course dinner about 15. Put it this way, I’m tight as cramp and even though work picks up the bills I’d think it was very fair even if I was paying myself.

    What constitutes the perfect cooked breakfast?

    Just to clear up some of the questions above. The tea was alright but I was in a rush so it hadn’t had long enough to brew in the pot for my liking before I had to drink it. Toast was very good farmhouse style, just the right thickness and toasted just right. I also wasn’t at Belsen, Unit 731 was more to my taste.
