  1. It's already started -, Pass the bucket.
  2. "The Premier League has threatened to sue a 13-year-old schoolboy and his parents who blew the whistle on the Liverpool tapping-up scandal, the family claimed on Tuesday night." Strong odour of BS somewhere in the north west ...but from whom does it originate?
  3. A great player in the junior teams, didn't seem to have the confidence to perform with the seniors. Let's hope he can get his act together under Mr de Boer.
  4. Exactly. Please set up a forum called "handbags at dawn" and settle your differences there, so the rest of us can enjoy each others' company without having to skip over this continual bitching.
  5. Relief. For a horrid moment, I thought the Star had committed the cardinal tabloid sin of getting its facts straight for a change.
  6. Excellent source. So Bakayoko is off to follow Lukaku, and Batman "literally has Chelsea in his blood". Hope he takes anticoagulants.
  7. The romantic in me thought 'why not? he's always wanted to play for the club'. The rational breathes a sigh of relief. Nowhere near the Drog's standards. And Essien was a different type of player to Pogba. Lamps or Herrera? James, be careful. You're killing me. I follow your argument, the Moan U set up does have a kind of Mourinho smell to it, but I think we can do better than that. Really looking forward to seeing how the club reacts. A Conte team is very different to Mourinho team, and to be frank, I prefer it.
  8. Explains that hot air balloon that passed over the Bridge last season, though
  9. Odd. Could swear Jose didn't rate him. Was he imposed on him, do you think?
  10. ... and all with his head
  11. Inevitable, but still a sad day for Chelsea and for me. Saw his first and last matches, and enjoyed every game in between. Farewell, John, you old legend. Never will we see your like again. Well, unless you return in another role ...
  12. Quote of the day: '"'Stevie G' was a very good player. People like him in Liverpool but he never did anything for his country. I am Mr El Hadji Diouf, Mr Senegal but he is Mr Liverpool and Senegal is bigger than Liverpool and he has to know that."" Excellent.
  13. Sorry, I'm in the wrong room I think. Back to Transfer Talk topic
  14. As they say in Dorset, Old Harry Rocks... He's on a year's contract, supported by Jeff Vetere as director of football to 'help in identifying and signing players', and who's been at Real Madrid, Newcastle, West Ham and Aston Villa. Presumably old Spud'u'like is focusing on shoring up last year's rather leaky defence, and JT should go some way to organising that for him. Nsue, Grounds, Robinson, Shotton, Dacres-Cogley, Morrison and Keita in defence currently, so he'll have his work cut out, unless you can disabuse me? Mind you, to be honest, the whole team is a bit nondescript. I'd imagine they'll stay up, but promotion seems unlikely.
  15. JT and Harry? Can't quite see it, myself. More dignified to just retire.
  16. ^ particularly if we whup 'em!
  17. Ditto, the powers that be will want an English captain regardless. Luiz would do for me, though, unless we recruit someone over the break with natural captaincy ability who just happens to be English. Can't see many of those on the horizon, though
  18. Anyone know when Community Shield tickets go on sale?
  19. Got pesto on the back of one of my shirts, Sciatika - my fault for eating in a trendy restaurant, I suppose. Won't wash out, so you can have it for a fiver. Just read "We Do Things Differently: The Outsiders Rebooting Our World Paperback" by Mark Stevenson. synopsis is "Our systems are failing. Old models - for education, healthcare and government, food production, energy supply - are creaking under the weight of modern challenges. As the world's population heads towards 10 billion, it's clear we need new approaches. Futurologist Mark Stevenson sets out to find them, across four continents." Interesting new take on old problems. Found it quite inspiring.
  20. Come to think of it, more likely they're trying to remove that slippery spot on the pitch
  21. Thanks. Thought I had been hearing things. You've restored my faith in my ears.
  22. The search for a premier league trophy at Anfield is underway...
  23. Mine's been there since listening to everyone leaving Wembley singing "we want you to stay"
  24. You win some, you lose some. The Samaritans will be busy in Islington tonight.
  25. Rather like one of their players, who was awfully prone if my memory serves me right?
