    Steven Gerrard - Aston Villa Manager

    Stevie's had one transfer window and some Villa fans are restless? Like any manager, it's going to take him a few windows to get the side he wants. Id fuck that Mings off but his centre back partner looks even worse. Reckon he'll be after Gomez in the summer.

    Too right. Fucking Snickers! They changed it here because that's what it was sold as in other countries! Fuck that, Marathon! Sorry Roger. For some reason, probably my dotage, I thought you were Tony! Oh, no I dont remember that T Bar.

    #BigPowerOff

    I agree with the sentiment about having a protest over the shocking gas and leccie prices. But I think boots on streets would be far better way of showing our disgust. I mean 'we' actually have to pay wind farm generators to switch off their turbines when existing infrastructure can meet the grid's demand. These operators are supposed to be private companies so they should be fully prepared to take the risk of not getting paid when their turbine energy isnt required instead of expecting the grid via customers to cover their 'losses.'

    Hmmm, America was (is?) beset with racial tensions but still managed to turn out great tunes like this.

    Ultimatums

    Normally, Id say you need both sides of the story here but he's hardly likely to admit cuffing her a few times and even if he did, would you still be ok with the friendship? So you need to go with your gut and head with this one on who is likely telling the truth. Sorry I cannot be more definitive.

    *Shakes head* Everton again.

    Wonder how many somersaults they'd turn if this is correct!? Had to smile at the bit where the shite consider they are worth more than Newcastle when sold by CAshley! The shite are attracting interest from American buyers willing to pay £350million for the club despite their financial problems and battle to avoid relegation. Sportsmail has learned that three US-based bidders have contacted owner Farhad Moshiri seeking to open negotiations since Everton’s financial plight worsened when major backer Alisher Usmanov was sanctioned last month. Moshiri has not formally put Everton on the market, but is looking for outside investment to help fund the club’s new stadium at Bramley-Moore Dock, leading a number of potential investors to attempt to persuade him to sell. The £3billion battle for Chelsea has shown the huge appetite for Premier League clubs with American investors. Given Everton’s financial issues, US billionaires believe the club could be bought for a fraction of that price. Moshiri paid around £200m for a 49.9 per cent stake in Everton six years ago. He has since raised that to 94 per cent by increasing his investment to over £500m. There would be little prospect of him getting his money back if he sanctioned a quick sale. Sources close to the Iranian businessman insist he remains committed to the club and that he has enough money to keep them going despite the loss of Usmanov’s funding. With several potential buyers circling, the 66-year-old’s options include selling off his entire shareholding, offloading the majority and staying as a minority owner or seeking to retain a significant influence by entering into a partnership with another owner. Moshiri has received a range of inquiries valuing Everton at between £300m and £400m over the last few weeks. Club sources are adamant it is worth more than the £305m Saudi Arabia’s Public Investment Fund paid for Newcastle United last October, assuming they stay up. Relegation would scupper any prospect of a sale, given the club have posted combined losses of £373m over the last three years and would be hamstrung by liabilities in the Championship. As Sportsmail revealed last month, many of the high-earning squad do not have relegation clauses in their contracts and losing Premier League TV income next season would lead to a fire-sale. Everton and Moshiri declined to comment. https://www.dailymail.co.uk/sport/football/article-10701319/US-tycoons-circle-Everton-Farhad-Moshiri-looks-outside-investment.html

    Mohamed Salah

    To be fair, Sky probably asked the club for an interview with him in the run up to Sunday's game. Once they had him in front of a camera, beside asking about that they asked him inevitably about the contract. They wont have just asked 'Mo, how's the contract negotiations going?'

    Russia v Ukraine

    Im certain NATO are heavily involved clandestine. Now might be the time to assist Ukraine with even more defensive capability? After the missile attack on the railway station in the East of Ukraine, one wonders how many more red lines are going to be ignored? Yes, Ive said Im shit scared of this going nuclear previously but, I have a very big and growing unease about endless numbers of civilians being deliberately targeted by Putin's mob.

    Russia v Ukraine

    Im sorry but it is a gross simplification to say people want the 'war' in Ukraine to continue. That says nothing about subjugating an entire nation to the will of the oppressor. And ending the 'war' without recourse to the consequences means the oppressor wins. Some of this stuff sounds like a pacifist's utopia. Stop the fighting at any cost but, there's no such thing as any cost because any cost really means at one cost to the invaded. If people want to be pacifists that's up to them. No one wants to fight for the sake of it or at least, very few do. But, unless you want to live under a regime where your only freedom is just about the freedom to breath and, even that can be taken away from you by the despots at their will, sometimes you draw a line in the sand and say 'Here and no further.' Be a pacifist by all means but, never forget sometimes people have to fight to protect your right to be a 'pacifist.' Some despots would have you killed for expressing your pacifist views without any consideration at all.

    Getting excited about this now even though its just under 48 hours off. The build up on Sunday is going to be immense. I think Mo is going to be on blob for this one. Cometh the hour, cometh the men. C'mon redmen, our destiny awaits.
