    Kobe Bryant Dies in Helicopter Crash

    Even if you've never seen Basketball before, you will know who he is and this shows just how good he was. Also came across as a great fella as well, the type who would be a great night out. The saddest part was seeing videos this morning of himself and his daughter. The bound they had was incredible and it was a very touching video. R.I.P, such a loss and also R.I.P to those who were with him as we can't forget them simply because they weren't famous. Still humans after all. I'm with Brian, fuck helicopters. That's the one form of travel that just isn't for me. I'd be shitting myself for the whole duration.
  3. Barcelona's season was over as soon as Suarez got injured. With him and Messi, there is always a chance, take one out and there is nothing there in attack. I mean, Suarez is one of the club's top scorers in history and it's only because of Messi being ridiculous why Suarez isn't being praised to the moon for his goal scoring record at Barcelona. But it's not just goals with him, but his link up play and allround game. He's a class footballer and not just a goal scorer. You realise just how fucking good he's been for the club when he's not there. Arthur actually had his best game in a Barcelona shirt(against Atletico) just before his injury and was looking better all the time, so I don't think it's a worry with him. He's only just got back from injury after all and with a run of games, he will be one of the better players in the side. I'm confident of that. I also believe himself and de Jong can form something brilliant, as the signs were already there before Arthur's injury. I believe de Jong has done well overall(apart from in recent games, where he's started to struggle) and he will likely be much better in the coming years, especially when moved into his natural position. With those 2 and Riqui Puig, there is potential there for a quality midfield in the future. As others have mentioned though, Busquets shouldn't really be starting anymore and Vidal should be starting ahead of him. I remember a midfield of himself, Arthur and de Jong looking very good earlier in the season when they played together. I don't get why Vidal is so underlooked as he's largely one of the best players when he plays. The defence is horrendous but I honestly think that giving Umtiti and Lenglet a run out together might come good in the end. Umtiti is still rusty, but with a few games we will see if he gets back into his rhythm, if so then himself and Lenglet might work. Pique and Umtiti definitely DON'T work and this has been proven. The thing with Pique is, you lose leadership when he's not there. He is also a very dangerous player from an attacking sense, although continuously lets himself down defensively and this has been a common theme throughout most of his career. He was class when he partnered Puyol and also in the treble season under Luis Enrique, but other than that, he has always been prone to 'clown moments'. Semedo over Sergi Roberto at right back anyday. Ter Stegen? Couldn't ask for more, he will go down in history as the club's greatest ever keeper in my opinion. If it weren't for him, Valencia were winning that game 5-0 the other night. Maybe Dembele can finally stay away from injuries? every time he starts hitting good form, he suffers an injury, but maybe a new manager, who can work with him individually can help get the kid focused? Valverde was very timid and that's not really the type of manager a character like Dembele needs if we are honest. I suppose all we can do is wait and see what develops over the next 5 games or so, as after all, Setien has only just came in and it'll take time for him to impose his style. This is why I always said that Barcelona had to get rid of Valverde at the start of the season, as it would then give the new man time to implement his tactics. I do think this is actually a very strong squad overall, but misses key components, for example a speedy player out wide, a striker and a top defender. Let's say Barcelona had Van Dijk, Neymar(or Mbappe) and Suarez didn't get injured, then that alone would improve the team dramatically. Actually finding these types of players is not easy at the moment though. The only players who would really improve the team are ones which would be impossible to buy in this present time. The board hardly help either. They are clueless, they lack class and the signings they are bringing in seem to get worse and more desperate. This is the main problem for me.
  4. Lahm was class, so was Cole. But the point of this was to bring up these debates, even if most of the threads have fallen flat because people can't be arsed. January and all that. As to the position argument, I tried my best with players who played in more than one different position in their career. Wanted to get 16 in each position one way or another. So, sorry, not sorry.

    Deadly Virus Outbreak in China

    So I'm pretty lucky that I've managed to miss out going to China two weeks ago, and my coworker who went in my place came back on Friday. No clue if he's infected, but he's been allowed to work from home - which if he's not been infected is a pretty sweet deal for him. Although if he's infected, that's pretty shit for him.
  6. I don't think it matters if they play the kids or not or if they want to progress or give it up altogether, the point is he is the Manager of Liverpool who are still playing in an FA cup competition and to blow it off by telling everyone the reason he is not going to be there is because he wants to stand by giving the players a winter break is pretty poor in my opinion.... Fine, give your first team players a break by all means but you still have a game to manage even if it's with the youth team... He is coming across a bit like it's not worthy of his time and effort which does not show anyone from Shrewsbury to his own youth team much respect...
  7. Apparently Shrewsbury have had 36 fixtures this season, and Liverpool have had 38. Make of that what you will.
  8. If that’s the case then Klopp looks very silly. I’m not arsed about giving the replay to the kids, but for him not to show up to “manage” them is really disrespectful.

    Nah don't need to watch earlier episodes but it does seem to have picked up a level (slightly) since the start right now.

    Police have bone to pick with motorist using a fake skeleton as a passenger A motorist who plonked a fake skeleton in his passenger seat so he could use a high occupancy vehicle (HOV) lane has been fined. Police in Arizona stopped the 62-year-old man after spotting the odd-looking companion in his front seat. The plastic skeleton - complete with a spooky outfit and a camouflage bucket hat - had a cool box between its legs and was secured to the seat with yellow rope. Alas, officers saw right through the driver's stunt. Arizona's Department of Public Safety tweeted: "Think you can use the HOV lane with Skeletor riding shotgun? You're dead wrong! "One of our motor troopers cited the 62-year-old male driver for HOV & window tint violations on SR-101 near Apache Blvd this morning. #NiceTry #YoureNotHeMan #AZTroopers" High occupancy vehicle lanes are used to ease traffic congestion for motorists with passengers in the car. Officials in Arizona say more than 7,000 drivers are penalised for flouting the rules every year. Last April, police pulled over a man who had a mannequin wearing a sweatshirt, baseball cap and sunglasses in his front seat. https://www.msn.com/en-gb/news/offbeat/police-have-bone-to-pick-with-motorist-using-fake-skeleton-as-a-passenger/ar-BBZllN8#image=1

    Actually the missus commented recently that this one had passed us by. By all accounts it seems we've not missed much. Plus I can't imagine it being the same without Flack, who I find most smash worthy despite her clearly being a bit psychotic. The beauty to insanity curve is often high on both axis. The question to you sir is it worth getting into or watching back earlier episodes?

    Hello

    I love the guy! This used to be near where I lived. I'm not sure if it is still there as I've moved houses since and not been back past.
  16. Holt is not really on the anti-Scouse outrage bus; he is perpetually bang into this kind of thing - scrapping the League Cup, European competition expansion, and general ineptitude of the EFL, etc. Just look at some of the stuff he said about Pep when he had similar sentiments during the week. Does go a bit full on at times, and unnecessarily IMO, but good lord does he care. Some of the insights he gives are a cracking read too. What I wouldn't give to have someone with half of his passion and determination at Rovers....
  17. You've missed the point mate. Klopp (and all other managers) knew there'd be potential game in this 'winter break' period given the FA told them so as per the above tweet. Yet now Klopp is getting all pissy because he has to play this game because Shrewsbury couldn't be beaten and now it's affecting his winter break period, despite knowing that this could potentially happen all along. I don't think it's fake outrage at all - if anything it stems from Klopp's OTT reaction to it all. There's a common misconception that people are constantly fuelled by media or social media etc. This isn't always the case and perhaps, just maybe, people can think for themselves when it comes to football matters regarding any club, manager, player, fans etc. Not everything is because of the shite that Sky Sports trawl out on repeat.

    FA Cup Fourth Round Matches - 24-27th January, 2020

    Still don’t think it’s a big deal we’re binning it off now that we’ve got a replay. He’s got a choice, rest players or not rest players. He’s been wanting a break in the league since he’s come to England and we’ve got 6 matches in February, and we’ve just had injuries to Mane and Milner. Once it was clear it was going to a replay, I’m sure he’d have preferred a player to just score an own goal - and that’s probably worse for the FA cup and Shrewsbury, who’re now going to get a bit more money from the replay and probably progress further in the FA cup. I think there’s a lot of fake outrage because the media’s having a bit of a slow news cycle in football and there’s only so many times someone can come out on Sky Sports and day the same thing about Bruno Fernandes. So this is a way to drum up outrage to get some new headlines - for instance why is Accrington Stanley’s chairman weighing in on this?
