Welcome to the new and improved TLW!


Some of you may experience issues logging in and will get an 'incorrect password' error. Don't worry, you haven't typed it in wrong and your password hasn't been changed. You will need to reset it though in order to log in. Click the reset password link and you will receive an email with your new temporary password. Once logged in, you need to choose a new password (or restore to your old one) otherwise you will be locked out again.


If you have an out of date email address linked to your account, then you won't receive the new password. If that's the case then you'll need to email me (dave @liverpoolway.co.uk) or send me a tweet @theliverpoolway and I'll update your password manually. 


Any other problems or questions just let me know.

    It took until November but I finally got one with Stan Lee. I'll replace him with Vera Lynn.

    Other Football - 2018/19 Season

    I reckon both us and Chelsea could end up with 90+ points this season and still lose the league by 10.

    Building a stronger immune system?

    All these kind of starchy foods such as rice and potatoes need to be cooked thoroughly and then left to cool. This increases the percentage of resistant starch contained in them, albeit not all the starch. If you then reheat them to eat, the amount of resistant starch increases further. Resistant starch is good for promoting bacteria that produce butyrate which is the main source of energy for colonic epithelial cells and also has anti-cancer properties.

    Resistant starches are not broken down in the small intestine to glucose and so have a very low glycaemic index. They are fermented by the colonic microbiota to short chain fatty acids.

    Also foods that are high in resistant starches (so called because they are resistant to digestion by mammalian enzymes and so reach the colon where they can be fermented by the microbiota) such as oats, well cooked and cooled starchy foods like rice and potatoes, legumes (chick peas, lentils, peas) green bananas, and you can also buy resistant starch powders (dextran, inulin) that you can add to drinks, food etc

    Actually, faecal transplants are quite the hot topic at the moment, especially in treatment of Crohn's disease, Ulcerative colitis and also chronic C.difficile infections. Don't throw away the poppers just yet.

    Building a stronger immune system?

    Pretty much, lots of plant fibre (that we can't digest ourselves) means plenty of nutrients for the commensal microbiome ("good" bacteria) These bacteria protect from pathogens and also produce short chain fatty acids, which amongst other things provide the main energy source for colonic epithelial cells and also protect from colon cancer. Probiotic yoghurts etc, imo, are a complete waste of time and money. A triumph of marketing over science.

    Studying the gastrointestinal microbiome is my job (albeit in animals mainly not humans) and it's fucking boss. Without our little microbe friends all animal life on this planet wouldn't be able to survive.

    Divorce - pros & cons?

    Mate, it’s admirable that you’re trying to be fair and balanced, but she is taking the absolute piss. You know what she’s up to so don’t give her a second fucking thought and just look after yourself!
