  1. Is it pronounced 'Timothy', but without the 'th'?
  2. Transfer Talk Topic

    Struggle to disagree with the sentiments expressed in the recent posts about Ake, just sad. Thought we had a stayer there.
  3. Khobar's Legacy

    I was referring specifically to the first game: I can remember the vitriol aimed at some of the players, "where were you when we were sh!t?".
  4. Khobar's Legacy

    ^ Probably not that different to how José felt in the same situation last season. (For me, whilst pleased to see Liverpool lose, I feel gutted for Claudio.)
  5. Khobar's Legacy

    Like others here, torn between gloating and fearing jinxing Tuesday!
  6. Funnily enough, when I saw the ManU snap, I had a similar thought: he looks like he's holding a bag of dog poo...
  7. Khobar's Legacy

    ...and preparing their position for questions about the Battle of Orgreave.
  8. Khobar's Legacy

    Funny the way most media report that there were n times as many Scouse fans as Sevilla: they probably made that analysis based on the number of red shirts visible in the stadium.

    Worralot of tears!
  10. Khobar's Legacy

    From the BBC: "Liverpool had so much riding on this game. The lure of Champions League football, set alongside the chance to play for Klopp and at Anfield, would have completed an attractive package to set before any potential signings. Now they cannot offer any sort of European football as they ended well beaten here in another night of disappointment for Klopp, who has now lost five successive finals with Dortmund and Liverpool." Brings tears to your eyes, doesn't it?

    I'm an atheist myself, but many thanks to those who gave prayers to the footballing gods: it's enough to make me become a believer. ...and thank you Sevilla: you'll probably never understand how much of a media ordeal from which you've saved us! EDIT: writing of media ordeals: I couldn't bear to have R5Live on during the game, so had R4 on instead, and as a result got to hear a very interesting programme about Flo Nightingale, the statistician. God moves in mysterious ways!

    ^ The spirit of Khobar lives on...
  13. Media / Press

    So did I. Should've gone to Dolland & Aitchison...
  14. Non Chelsea: Champions League

    ^ Not according to the media I've been looking at: it's just that Bayern were really, really unlucky. (And, of course, he wouldn't have lost the Citeh game had he been in charge last night!) Give me strength...
  15. Media / Press

    I liked this from our very own Eni Aluko, especially the bit about Arsey "Specialist in Failure" Whinger (my quotes, not hers).
  16. Media / Press

    ^ "BBC Sporf"! (Very good, a conflation of sport and spoof.)
  17. Khobar's Legacy

    You're a bigger man than I am, bcb.
  18. Khobar's Legacy

    The Hillsborough Anniversary and Spirit of Istanbul will be the Beeb's themes for the day. I want to emigrate.
  19. Khobar's Legacy

    ^ Spoke too soon. No radio for me for at least 24 hours, it‘s going to be unbearable.
  20. Khobar's Legacy

    That my first thought, too!
  21. Transfer Talk Topic

    The Telegraph slates us for this (potential) deal. "Chelsea supporters will no doubt be worried by the direction their club are heading in, following the botched summer transfer window that saw central defender Papy Djilobodji, Falcao and Baba Rahman all signed." QFT.
  22. I suspect he'd rather enjoy cell block H, with plenty to keep him warm. I'd rather see him in an H Block.
