  1. Thought he won the French League Cup or something last season? Arnaud will know. Anyway, if he goes to united, he'll improve them over what the gimp achieved even without turning them into a winning machine. Id rather Steve Bruce goes there myself. Edit, it was the Coupe de France and his 2nd trophy, apparently. The other was the Frence equivalent of the Community Shield!

    Condolences bud. As one gets older, you realise how precious life really is. For anyone to have their's cut short at a young age is just a tragedy.

    Just watching the re run of the game on Sky. Did that smith rowe turn up? All the hype about oedegaard and he still doesnt look more than a Championship player to me. Ben white?!

    Liverpool 4 Arsenal 0 (Nov 21 2021)

    Where have all the people gone who were clamouring for us to sign Ben White for £50m before arsenal signed him?

    PODCAST: Liverpool 4 Arsenal 0 - Match Reaction

    Arteta, his players and their fans have being getting cocky because they had a reasonably good run over 10 games. They thought they could go toe to toe with us but really, were pretty poor. Their front 2 were toothless. Good point about corners, we dont score enough from the aerial ball, especially Virgil and Joel. Loved the way Tsimikas ran all the way back to celebrate Taki's goal, I think it was, with Alli after his throw out.

    Good report that, Dave. Pretty much how I saw the game. Shouted at the nobs not to sing the Olly song. I really think we're in a good position and the league will be a lot closer than for a few years.
  10. Im fucking gutted he's been sacked, absolutely fucking gutted. A sad, sad day for football, I tell you.

    Arsenal (H) - Sat 20th Nov 2021 (5:30pm)

    Agree with you both. It's always the same posters turning out the same shit about the team and certain players. Maybe they were happy when we were finishing 5th, 6th or lower because they had a real cause to moan at instead of being 3rd in the table and already qualified for the CL knock outs? What a time to be alive indeed. Them fucking chips I had last night from the Lucky Strike chippy must have got me thinking it was Harry Ramsden in goal for arsenal not Ramsdale! Oh well.

    I'll be surprised if Conte not only makes them difficult to beat but, probably sees them climb the table and possibly go on a good domestic cup run. He'll want to win a trophy to keep his reputation up.

    Cant have any old European teams winning at Anfield just because we've qualified for the knock out. Jurgen has to shuffle the pack but this isnt a domestic cup so I dont expect a team from the 'B' list for this. Besides, Porto seem to think they should always be beating us when we play them so I dont want them having an easy game. 'Dead rubber' me arse.

    When are we likely to get definitive stadium news?

    Update on progress. Also shows why the corners of the ARE cant be filled with seats.

    Jurgen Norbert Klopp

    Watched 'End of a storm' again this morning. Love Jurgen. Still cuts me up when he talks about his dad, how his dad wanted him to be better than he thought he was and sadly died before Jurgen became a manager and achieved the success he has in top level football after all.

    They're consistent in their observations, I'll give them that!
  17. Yep this. Refs were literally falling over themselves to give them pens. The biggest joke pen was the one penandez was gifted at Villa when he fouled the villa defender. Once Jurgen called out the bullshit, the refs took notice and the weekly get out of jail cards dried up. Im still gutted they sack the gimp though news they might limp through to the end of the season with an interim manager might be compensation if they do.

    Arsenal (H) - Sat 20th Nov 2021 (5:30pm)

    Thankfully didnt have to queue for more than a minute to get in turnstile K yesterday. Maybe it pissing down with rain focused a few minds about getting in, I dont know? Overall, a good game but I thought the first 20 minutes or so we were a bit slow at getting forward and gave arsenal a bit too much respect. They've been on a good run of playing no one of real class and maybe our defeat at West ham contributed to that? I dont rate that Ramsden. He's been relegated in 2 successive seasons and while that's not entirely down to him, before this season I wouldnt say he was much good. But he's certainly in a purple patch and made 4 very good saves against us. One of my mates said yes, they were good saves but maybe just at the right height? Hmm, not sure about that, I think they were quality. In contrast, I only remember Alli having to make 2 real saves: one in the first half almost straight at him and another he tipped over the bar. Good to see that on arsenal corners, we did at least give Alli some protection unlike at West Ham. Thiago was passing the ball around and having a good game. Fabinho likewise and stiffled virtually every arsenal threat. Ox looked desparate to score against his old club. Jota was frustrating in the first half and hardly in the game at all. In the 2nd half he put both Ramsden and another arsenal player on their bums when they passed the ball to him in their box. He could have snatched at the ball there but showed composure to draw the attempted blocks and scoot around them to make it 2-0. Sadio had opened the scoring with a header on 40 minutes that I think bounced and deceived Ramsden after a bit of a scramble. In truth we should already have been 2 or 3 up and would have been had it not been for the keeper. Despite him keeping the scores level for so long, I didnt get the feeling we werent winning this. Like Jurgen said, Im getting a bit sick of players and managers trying to get Sadio booked and sent off. Legohead can get to fuck with his antics on the touchline that rightly incenced Klopp and the crowd. The way some of these oppo players go down makes you realise they wouldnt last 5 minutes in a Sunday League game. That incident certainly racheted up the atmosphere and resulted in a quick break down the left and cross from Sadio for Mo to score the 3rd. But talking about Mo, just what the fuck has to happen before he gets a pen, have his leg snapped off or what? Oliver's condescending wave of the arm to 'get up' was a complete joke. What's all this shit about 'force' not enough for a pen? Cresswell nearly took Hendo's knee off last week and doesnt even get a card, Mo pulled back in the box and that's legit? Fuck off. Taki came on with just over 10 minutes to go and promptly scored. You keep wanting the lad to do well and it must be hard for players now to get a run going. In the old days, they could play in the Central League but now, it's on the bench and have to make the impact when they come on. Hopefully he'll get a run out against Porto and the goal will boost his confidence a bit. It was good to get this result after the disappointment at West Ham followed by an international break. I dont think anyone was below par today, Thiago, Ox and the Greek Scouser all made an impact. MoTM is a close one between Mo and Fabinho but I think Fab deserves this because he snuffed out virtually everything from arsenal.

    If that's a pen, Mo was absolutely robbed by Oliver yesterday.

    Turkey teeth

    There's a guy on You Tube called Rob who does Salvage Rebuilds UK about cars. He's just got back from Turkey after at least a 2nd dental job there. He's got a gob of pearlies whiter than white. When he speaks, he sounds like he's got a gob full of stones which Im convinced is due to the work done on his teeth which seem too big for his mouth. Just brush them twice a day and floss regular. Job done.

    Have a rant thread

    What pisses me off about Adele and others of her ilk is, she' ok with being a potty mouth in her shows but when on tv, she's all butter wouldnt melt in the mouth. Yeah, she tones it down so she can appear on tv and give the impression what a lovely girl she is. Stick your faux niceness. You're a tramp most people wouldnt give a 2nd glance at talking like that on the street.

    Yep. Thing is, the anti vaxxer propogators are still causing doubt in roughly a third of the UK population about the vaccine. These same people come out with all sorts of stuff that the vaccine 'doesnt work,' 'isnt needed due to natural immunity,' 'changes your DNA' and a host of other nonesense. They also ignore this virus is fast at mutating which can lessen the vaccine's efficacy, especially the Delta variant. But not everyone has the Delta variant while having a constantly high percentage of unvaccinated roaming around helps the damn thing to spread. We are truely living in an age of conspiracy theorists. Some are just deluded mischief makers with others 5th columnist doing the work of communist Governments.

    Moral Dilema

    A lad I know told me a story about a time he was interviewing 3 lads he'd known from a previous job, for a single vaccancy. He said he asked them all the same question at one point in the interview which was, why are you the best person for the job? The first two gave a couple of reasons why they considered themselves the best option. The 3rd lad responded by saying 'Well, Im better than the other 2 you're interviewing.' He didnt get the job although I guess it wasnt just the answer he gave to that question that fucked him over. Bottom line in my experience is you have to sell yourself, your skills, qualities and what you bring to the job. Character assassination of other candidates does not tend to work out well. On the other hand, Ive known people who didnt have the required skills for advertised roles who managed to blag it and make a success of the role.
