    Getting Old

    Don't skimp/cheat on the eye tests. You might (unknowingly) have a degenerative eye condition like glaucoma, and by the time you notice any effect, the damage is already done. Sadly, I speak from experience.

    "Rafa managed him at Napoli and maybe they’ll both be reunited circling the drain at Everton." Haha ! What a great image !

    West Brom 1 Liverpool 2 (May 16 2021)

    Couple of points: 1. For all the crying about the drop ball/free kick, it’s not as though Fab slotted a direct pass through for someone to score. Most of the WBA defence and midfield were back and if they’d have done their job and not been so fucking slow about it they’d have cleared the ball when it came free from the initial tackle on Mo. So stop your crying and fuck off back to your sister and mother wives. Which brings me to... Totally agree. West Brom had possession, but then played a poor back pass which allowed Sadio to nip in and tee the ball up for Mo. The goal was down to their defensive incompetence, not the free kick which preceded it.

    The days before health and safety

    One event that seems to have escaped the attention of the H&S Police up to now is the Isle of Man TT races. The TT was always dangerous, but some of the modern footage from rider's GoPros is almost unwatchable. Lapping at 135mph with a bale of hay between the rider and a concrete lampost ?? *shudders*

    I have suffered from sciatica for many years as a result of a herniated disc in my lower back. Fortunately I am still reasonably active and I have found that the sciatica is less of a problem if I keep my "core" muscles engaged - walking briskly, sitting upright, even doing jobs around the garden etc. The sciatica is much more pronounced if I slouch, walk slowly, stand for any length of time, or do anything that puts direct vertical pressure on my spine. The back specialist I consulted did an MRI scan then told me that the hernia is in the front/side of the disc, so operating would be very difficult, with no guarantee it would improve things - in fact, it could even make it worse. I've had a cortizone injection into the disc, but it didn't lead to any long term improvement. I asked the specialist about a brace, and he recommended avoiding that as he feels it is better to build up core muscle strength, and a brace has the effect of weakening the core muscles by removing the load. I am not taking any medication as I really worry about the long term effects of anti-inflammatories and pain killers. My advice would be first to get an MRI scan and find out the basic cause of the sciatica, then consult a reputable specialist about the best course of action. You never know, it may be operable. Avoid chiropractors, and I honestly don't think pain killers are a good long term solution as he may be doing more damage without realising it. I'm going to make a disclaimer here - I am NOT a medical professional, I have no medical qualifications of any kind, and the above is just a description of my personal experience with sciatica. I have concluded there is no "cure" for my condition, so I have to find the best way I can to manage it and live with it. Good luck with your Dad's diagnosis, I sincerely hope he can find some relief.

    Premier League Round Up (Mar 12-14 2021)

    Fucking hell Dave - you had to remind us that Stewart Downing once played for us ? I'd almost wiped that from memory. Your destruction of Lamela redressed the balance a bit, but still.......
