  1. How Was Your Day?

    Oh yeah...um, sorry about that.
  2. Finnegan - is there any prospect of your internet usage being monitored at work?
  3. Right - I'd have to take my passport. My driving licence is written on papyrus. One of those green ones.
  4. What are you listening to?

    Led Zeppelin, The Who, Pink Floyd and "Jimmy Hendrix" ...oh , hang on
  5. Nigel Pearson working for KP again

    The way I see it, the appointment of Nigel would be a comple...hang on, where's that "Unpopular opinions you hold thread"?
  6. How Was Your Day?

    Or stand on the seat
  7. How Was Your Day?

    Someone pissed on it?
  8. Your Music: Post It Here

    Sounds like George Harrison meets Richard ****ing Clayderman...but I rather like the improvised bassline Burgundy Sky (excerpt).mp3
  9. Reunions you'd like to see

    I also read somewhere that Colin Moulding has no interest in music anymore. I'd pin your hopes on Talk Talk instead.
  10. Reunions you'd like to see

    Unlikely/untenable given Partridge's chronic stage fright. Saw a clip of Neon Shuffle recently - Andy Partridge is Sandi Toksvig.
  11. Against Liverpool? I disagree. I know. I was pointing out that there are very few teams in the EPL that employ it - if any. I think that is a major part of Klopp's frustration is that something that he engendered to such devastating effect at Borussia Dortmund seems to be very difficult to engineer with the players that he has at Liverpool. Great analysis and I very much agree. Disagree - I think for better of for worse, he'll start King in preference to Iborra.
  12. Who precisely? Even Klopp who is the main architect of this strategy struggles to effect it most of the time. Guardiola has a similar philosophy but the downside to a rapid pressing system is that, if one man doesn’t do his job, the entire structure can collapse which we've seen time and time again at Liverpool. In order for Klopp’s tactics to work, each player must be capable of reading the game, understanding his specific role in any given situation, and adapting quickly in order to keep an opponent firmly under pressure. I'd contend that right now, that isn't the case at Liverpool. When it works the results are spectacular though - remember their 4-1 dismantling of Man City? What amazed me about Liverpool yesterday is how an essentially surrogate side could move the ball so quickly. In our last league encounter at the King Power we cut that out - particularly those clever rapid releases from Lallana and severed all service to Mane. We won't have to worry about either on Saturday but Coutinho on the other hand is an one man show.
  13. Depression

    Good call that. I bought this for an ex from the obligatory airport bookshop without appreciating how popular it was - I swear those places must shift 90% of the worlds self-help literature along with Jackie Collins, Deepak Chopra, Andy McNab and that ridiculous E L James woman. I've no time for new age nonsense and celebrity endorsement but I read it myself and irrespective of ones views on the spiritual component it prescribes a very positive strategy for transformational/transformative strategy and progressive thinking. Aside from the inevitable woo****ery and gobbledegook and the fact that it's pretty much a repackaging of the tenets of Mahayana Buddhism and Zen, I fully agree - and unlike most New Ager charlatans, mountebanks and snake oil salesmen this does have appreciable practical worth. Not that it matters but he looks like a hybrid cross between a hobbit and a hobgoblin.
