    What are you listening to?

    Agree - great track. But much of it is derivative dross and the product of John Squire discovering Led Zeppelin IV, which when you consider how long it was in the making meant that after all the high expectation, it was a massive disappointment and critical failure upon release. It has grown on me over the years though. Brown's vocals are atrocious in places. 'Daybreak' immediately springs to mind.

    So is the Checkatrade Trophy. Not to enthralled by the EFL Cup - that's all. Very much looking forward to the Third Round of the FA Cup though. What does a celebration predicated upon the purported birth of Jesus have to do with the League Cup?

    "The Cup"??...The League Cup you mean - and no that genuinely wouldn't make me happy unless it was a very encouraging performance. Terrible marginal competition that we've already won three times which no one really cares about anymore (although at least provides revenue for the lower leagues) for what prize? A trip to Wembley, which is hugely devalued and prize money which wouldn't pay Wes's wage for a week and a backdoor entry into Europa. Clutters up the season needlessly. I'd sooner concentrate on the League and the unfinished business of the real cup competition come the third round next month.

    Covers

    Well since Dylan had gone electric shortly before the recording of this track it's by no means a stretch to suggest that it may have sounded somewhat similar had it have been designated for side two of "Bringing it All Back Home" instead of the acoustic side. He did indeed consider the possibility, which is perhaps why he was always highly complimentary of the version by the Byrds. It also helped to marry the notion of intelligent lyrics and folk pedigree with emergent jangly commercial pop which Dylan not only entertained but also approved of. I appreciate your opinion, but the point of a cover version is to be different to the original. Just out of curiosity, do you also regard Hendrix's rendition of "All Along The Watchtower" as similarly pointless?
  10. Well although the Everton badge tattoo was a myth, he nonetheless was a diehard supporter in his youth. I don't think he betrayed any particular bias today, but as I said, not a fan of his commentary.
  11. Well he supported Everton and played for Liverpool and is very knowledgeable about the history of Merseyside football. I thought he was as impartial as he gets. Aside from that, I'm not overly enthused about Carragher as a commentator myself, but perhaps your question should be why would a broadcaster retain the services of one of their flagship presenters that flobbed in the direction of a young girl?

    Watford post-match 2-0 Puel out chit-chat

    Isaac Success was dreadful today. He can't even score with a bunch of hookers and a hotel room. Awful player. Looking forward to seeing the build up and finish to the second goal later, don't think I fully appreciated it from the Kop. Respectful from the Watford fans after Birch's address - shame they had nothing to applaud or cheer about during the game. Terrible performance. Quietest away section in years. Loved Söyüncü's dummy.
