    Gerard Houllier

    I’m another who did the Cardiff to Dortmund to Charlton trip. Aged 20. With my arl fella. Mostly drunk for a week. Hanging out with Erik meijer and Gary macs arl fella in a sunny square in Dortmund. It was the best week of my life. Absolutely magic. the Roma match on the kop too. And the Cardiff final against the mancs. The man is responsible for some very very happy times. RIP Ged

    VAR Thoughts?

    I think VAR would be a great concept if instead of super slow mo replays and lines drawn on screens etc that the decisions were only reviewed in real time speed (the speed that the refs and linos have in the pitch) and judged entirely like that. The benefit being that the extra camera angles available would be able to give a view that the refs and linos don’t have on the pitch either by distance or obstructions and also an ‘extra look’ to make sure. id still honestly rather have no VAR but a bit of extra help and a safety net for say a ref giving a decision influenced by a noisy crowd or say not giving a pen due to a players reputation could, I believe, be easily resolved by the above suggestion.

    Villa (A) Premier League - 4/10/20 - 19:15

    We were well and truly cunted in the quim there. theyve exposed our weakness there, I.e, don’t fanny about with it at the back so we can press them, just hoof it high over the midfield and run at us.

    TLW Guitarists

    Epi Sheraton’s don’t age so well as the anodised gold hardware discolours on the pickups compared to the bridge parts etc. They’re a bit too fiddly and flimsy. id get a new epi 339 as they have coil split on the pick ups so you can get more sounds out of them and they’re extremely well built for the money. les Paul’s are hit and miss as far as Gibson’s go. Some of the vintage ones are great, I’ve played 100k valued 1959 models at guitar shows and they are masterpieces and can see why they’re sought after, but yeah decent ones are unaffordable, and poor ones are almost equally unaffordable. I’d say the QC has improved on the ones made in the last 18 months actually. Avoid anything from 2010 to 2018. Or anything with the self tuning thing on, even though it’s actually quite useful. some early to late 80s models can be picked up reasonably cheap. That era wasnt renowned for being a classic era in terms of les Paul’s but theyre robust and do the job well, a fair few will have been well maintained and upgraded so bargains can be had. epiphone Les Pauls are decent enough if you invest in some good pick ups, and upgrade the tuners. The stock ones aren’t brilliant. They’re creeping up in price at the moment and for same money you can get a decent fender tele or strat. Or even a PRS SE. There’s even better value in Tokai if you can find one. They’re as good as the real thing. me personally I don’t really like LP’s as they’re too heavy, especially if you’re playing standing up for a while. SGs are better balanced and actually sound a bit better and more playable in my opinion. theres a great site called thefretboard.co.uk which has a great classified section for second hand stuff. Much safer than eBay and a great community. Prices on there are bang on and the sellers are well vetted so it’s trustworthy. Might be worth a scout on there before making any purchases as there is definitely value in the preloved market at the moment.

    Thiago Alcantara

    He could be a great option. For all our intricate midfield passing sometimes you just need someone to leather it I can see why Klopp would pur suede the owners to make a bid

    Worst you've ever felt after a defeat?

    Aye that’s the one. I couldn’t actually remember who scored and who was playing but it’s come back to me now. We had that quite nice black kit, dudek in yellow. Dudek dropped it and Southgate knocked it in. We all thought it was going to get disallowed as we thought it’d be kicked out jerzys hands at the time.

    Worst you've ever felt after a defeat?

    All the obvious games have been mentioned but one that also sticks out for me was a 1-0 loss Away against Middlesbrough in the early noughties, the season we signed Diouf and Diao (in fact they were on the way to be coming legends at the point of the day). at that stage me and my cousins were going to every game home and away, absolutely loving it. We’d been to Maine road and Elland road in the games before and we were winning well and I think top at that stage heading into a prosperous winter. on the day we rocked up to the riverside after a great 2 hour singalong on the coach, full of beans, ready to cement our place back in the league elite. We watched on the concourse before kick off united lose the early game which made it even better. what followed was a cold, windy frustrating afternoon, shit performance and a shit 1-0 defeat. the coach journey home was one of largely silence and the odd slightly nasty bickering. In fact I had seen a few uncomfortable and unsavoury incidents that day from some idiot reds that made me question whether going on the away days would be worth it going forward. I guess I just wasn’t ready for handling a defeat, this was meant to be a guaranteed win, and it felt like the end of the world. the game wasn’t particularly significant on its own, but after that I think we went on a massive run without a win which put the nail in coffin of the houllier/Thompson era. This was the start of it.

    He’s such a class act. What a player we got there, and totally from out of the blue. We’ve missed that type of player since Didi left. Being in the middle of the park you see much more of the game and you pick up a bit of wisdom about game management. He’s a smart cookie for sure, knowing when a short simple pass, or a defence splitter, or a cheap foul, or a shot, is the right decision to either speed up and keep the tempo flowing or slow the game and buy a bit of time and have a breather. him and Virgil seem to run the game at the easy pace they dictate and allow the others to run tag arse doing the damage. it was a big statement that he got dropped against villa to avoid the suspension for the city game and hope to god he stays fit and available for the rest of the season.

    Joe Gomez

    One thing about Gomez that stands out is that he is rapidly quick. but on the other hand the fact we see him doing a fair bit of sprinting per game (as opposed to virj) is possibly that he is having to run because he is usually in the wrong place. i feel there is a great player there but he needs to master his reading of the game, sense of positioning and gain his experience on the pitch and not from the stands. Id actually trust him in a big game too where he has no choice but to be ‘switched on’ and feel the pressure from minute one. I think the lower, lesser games are counter productive as the switching off is more likely to happen when the ball is largely at the other end of the pitch. risky but I’d play him ahead of lovren on sun
