  1. To give you an example of one pundit, Danny Higginbotham, he speaks to local journalists and club staff as part of his pre match prep to get a better understanding of the teams he's covering. He's outstanding too, one of the very best.

  4. This wasn’t strictly on the street but it’s too funny not to tell. So I went round my mates house and I was chilling out in his bedroom while he madd a drink and I looked over to see a copied DVD that had “BJ 2” on it, and I thought I’m having that. Got home that night, put it in my PlayStation, then the TV on...... Bridget Jones 2. Still knocked one out to it, obviously.

  6. Mate, as Mac & Crinkly have said, you're one of the smartest posters on FT. You're super bright and I really enjoy reading your posts - you've clearly got a lot to offer the world. I feel your frustration and your post screams out to me that you're not content or at peace with your lot. Some of your anger seems directed at the outside world and things you've got no control over, and some of it seems internal anger that you're not living the life you think you should be. IMO, this is your sixth sense/wisdom/gut feel telling you something needs to change. You're not

  7. Looking at how condensed the fixtures calendar is for next season, I'm wondering if being out of Europe could be a blessing in disguise after the season we've just had. Not playing qualifiers is a big help for you guys as well. The league and Europa League absolutely has to be the priority for you. Rodgers should definitely sacrifice the League Cup and hand it over to the second string or even the kids. FA Cup he might play the second string to start with and take it more seriously if you progress, but I'd be looking at them as bonuses if you get through a few rounds.

  11. Lineker's a proper sell out about us, I agree about the whole Ranieri debacle. I'd say fair enough if he thought "I personally think he can turn this around, needs more time" etc... (though I wouldn't have agreed) but he was right in the midst of the mainstream "who do they think they are" and he's apparently a Leicester fan! Tell you one I've thought lately about Bournemouth is that people go too far the other way. Yes they were very mediocre in the Premier League but I can't believe how many people pretend Howe did a bad job there. Going from League Two to the Premier League in s

  14. Perez is my dark horse, I find a lot of the criticism abit over the top and he did look like a more than capable cam/second striker when used there. He has some flair about him which we really lacked with Maddison and pereira out. And i think Vardy is a lesson that one season is too soon to write off even players in their mid 20’s (rare case I know)

  17. Whilst I agree the fee is extortionate, I’m confused by this part of your post... I can’t imagine Susan Whelan would be in a job for much longer if she was signing off salaries that the club couldn’t afford. I’m fairly sure she and the owners have spent infinitely more time than any of us with the club accountants working out what we can pay players and what we can’t. We haven’t spent beyond our means since probably Sven was here, early 2000s before that, so it feels like you’re getting yourself wound up over nothing there.

  18. Leaving aside current transfer speculation, it is an annoyance when pundits can't refer to Kasper Schmeichel doing stuff in games without referring to his father. Kasper Schmeichel has had (and continues to have) a great career at the elite level. He is an international player of some renown. He has won stuff He's obviously one of the leaders at this club. We all know whose son he is. If he makes a save, he does it himself. No need to mention who his Dad is. It happens less now than before 2016, but it still happens.

  19. I'm no expert but it's my view that mental health issues seem to be more acute in the intelligent - I've been reading your posts for some time and am certain that you fit into that category. Your post screams frustration at me, and I've no reason to believe that it isn't justified. And sometimes frustration is good because it drives us to take actions to overcome it. The trick is to make those positive rather than negative actions, and to direct these actions at things that can be changed rather than those that can't.. The advantage that I have over many on here is hi

  24. Tbh the latter isn't so much a thing anymore and when you look at the background in terms of history, rightly or wrongly it's quite apparent why there was that religous divide in terms of catholics supporting Celtic and protestants supporting Rangers. For example Celtic were founded by an Irish priest as a mechanism to feed poor Irish immigrants in the east end of Glasgow whereas Rangers had the outright heinous and sectarian signing policy of only signing protestants until as late as 1989 so this was always going to make protestants gravitate towards supporting them. Obviously there's sectar

  25. I'm sorry to hear that man. The world is utterly upside-down right now - perhaps it has been for a long time, but now it just seems even more so. Your anger is valid and 100% justified. It would need a better mind than mine to say if you are depressed or not, but even if you just think you might be it might be a good idea to talk to someone else about it, if you can. FWIW your intellect and opinion are ones that I respect hugely - "all substance and no show", as Thatcher would have it. If you feel you need to talk about it more or just vent further, do go ahead and inbo

  27. Numerous clubs that supposedly have a good atmosphere yet having been to them several times I’m yet to hear it: - Anfield - Selhurst Park - Goodison Park General rule of thumb based on experience for me is that the newest promoted sides have the best atmospheres. Heard good ones at Huddersfield, Sheffield United and Watford in recent years. But then also each year one side gets labelled by Sky as the “plucky underdogs whose home atmosphere and form could save them” so I’m also conflicted!

  29. Most football pundits are terrible. There's the boring ones like Hoddle and Jenas, the latter of whom clearly hates Citeh, is a Tree and is about as wooden when he appears on telly. There's the reactionary gobshites like Savage and Sutton who the Beeb stick on 606 to provoke supporters into calling the show, otherwise they wouldn't have a show. There's the Sky lot who, as it's been said umpteen times before, clearly have their audience in mind. Carragher and Neville are knowledgeable enough and their bromance is fun, but they spend 90% of their airtime talki

Again all relative I look at mo Farah and ask myself “how” 😂 I find it hysterical watching the London marathon and seeing top athletes averaging 4:30 pace, and seeing kids not able to keep up whilst cycling alongside. We all lead different lives and stresses. Whether you run a 5 minute mile or 15 minute mile, your getting active and making some difference. the top amateur runners find time or have time to train at a level that gets them their PB’s.

  41. I've got a few of these. The idea that the club you support has any impact on a football opinion. If I was to say I thought Pogba was overrated, someone who supports Man Utd might say "that's rich coming from a Leicester fan" as if you're blind to any team considered better than the one you support. Similarly, when someone feels they have to state "I'm an Arsenal fan but..." when praising another club like they're offering a service by praising a team other than their own.

  44. How quickly we are willing to give up our freedoms and right to property, all in the name of fear and safety. The New Zealand strategy simply cannot work long term. Either they destroy their economy due to repeated (totalitarian esque) lockdowns forever, or the virus takes hold and the same happens there like everywhere else. I don't think they are managing expectations with the vaccine. Its a Coronavirus, it mutates and changes like the cold. If my suspicions are correct, this vaccine will probably give permissive immunity, meaning it will lessen the effects and modu

  45. Selby has problems when his positional game is off, means he breaks down a lot and this causes the frames to be scrappy. I wouldn't call him negative, he takes his time if a shot requires thought. He just bloody hard to beat and at the end of the day it's up to his opponent to beat him. Hope he bores Ronnie to the the point where he just walks out to be honest, greatest player ever but can't stand the bloke.

  47. I sometimes pick up litter off the street and put it in a bin if there’s one nearby. Obviously not skanky dirty litter but if it’s a newly discarded tin or bottle for example I may pick it up and bin it. Not always like, I mean I’m not a bin man or owt, but I can’t stand seeing litter on the streets when there’s a bin within 5 yards. Boils my piss tbh.

  49. From Wikipedia: Totalitarian regimes are often characterized by extensive political repression, a complete lack of democracy, widespread personality cultism, absolute control over the economy, massive censorship, mass surveillance, limited freedom of movement (most notably freedom to leave the country) and widespread use of state terrorism. Other aspects of a totalitarian regime include the use of concentration camps, repressive secret police, religious persecution or state atheism, the common practice of executions, fraudulent elections (if they take place), possible possession of weapon
