  1. Oh yeah, he should probably be my keeper for the side that includes present day players.

    What are you playing?

    I've been playing Prey. So far it's like BioShock and Dishonored had a baby (the Dishonored connection makes sense, because Arkane studios made Dishonored). I'm trying to beat it before the 15th, when it's off GamePass.

    Times When Your Club Blew It

    Pull up a fucking chair if you've got time for this list... … actually fuck that, I don't feel like depressing myself right now.

    Coronavirus (COVID-19) Outbreak

    The herd immunity theory sounds good until you hear medical experts say it could take years to develop herd immunity without a vaccine... and then it just sounds like a way to get the world's health services completely overwhelmed.
  5. Reina's easily the best keeper we've had in my lifetime, so I understand why @CaaC (John)'s son put him in. Clemence is before our time. I only caught the tail end of Grobelaar's career. Same with Rush, which is why I've got more fond memories of Robbie Fowler and Gerrard than players like Rush and Barnes, who are some of Liverpool's all time greats (although I think Stevie is too). I'd probably put Grobelaar in over James though tbh. Some good shouts in there though. Hyypia's the best defender I've seen with us (until VVD, but let's see Virgil do it for as long as Big Sami did for us before I say he's better) - sorry Carra. If I were to do one from my lifetime, I'd probably make it. Reina Alexander-Arnold Hyypia Van Dijk Robertson Mascherano Alonso Gerrard Mane Suarez Salah And if I had to leave players we've currently got in the side out, I'd just make a few tweaks... Reina Finnan Hyypia Carragher Aurelio Mascherano Alonso Gerrard McMannaman Torres Suarez Notable absentees that deserve mentions: Fowler, Agger, Skrtel, Kuyt, Riise, Johnson, Sissoko, Gary Mac, Didi Hamman, Luis Garcia, fuckin' Heskey (especially that one season), Berger.

    Coronavirus and Football

    I mean I understand why the owners tried it - the same reason they’ve tried doing a lot of other pro-corporate moves that have rubbed the fan base the wrong way. They’re American business owners, they own other sports sides in America where it’s very normal for these expensive teams owned by the ultra wealthy getting a government handout. But they try to play up the whole “This Means More” shite and you big up a club’s socialist ethos and then pull something like this, where a billionaire can afford to look after his own and let the community have the taxpayer assistance. At the end of the day, it’s worth more to FSG that the supporters view them as “the good guys” and that’s why when they’ve faced strong opposition from our fans they’ve backed down. But it is strange that they keep trying shite like this, probably trying to see what they can get away with without getting stick for it.

    As someone who hates BoJo, fucking hell... I hope he gets better ASAP. I assume if he’s in intensive care he’s either on a ventilator or about to be on one.

    The figure is well over 1% mate this shite is pretty serious

    Coronavirus and Football

    1% of the world's population is 72million people. If 72 million people suddenly drop dead, the economy is going to take a hit. But if we just carry on like normal with the disease spreading, we'll have a higher than normal death rate because hospitals will be overwhelmed (see Italy) so then you've got a much higher number of people dying - of COVID and from those other serious health problems... because they won't get treatment. The lockdowns are designed to minimise the hit the world takes overall. Short term economic harm to prevent greater economic harm, and obviously to give our healthcare providers the best possible chance of saving lives for a disease with no immunity and no vaccine.

    They can afford to take the hit so the taxpayer can pay for people that REALLY need government assistance. A club with billions bankrolling it isn't in need of a government handout.
  12. Seems risky tbh. But it's a good sign regarding the season being planned to end.
  13. I think the club getting the taxpayer to pay for 80% of furloughed staff is an absolute disgrace. It's nice the club will pay the remaining 20%, unlike Levy with Spurs, but it's antithetical to the ethos of our club to have the taxpayer paying when we've got more money than most clubs and most clubs have shitloads of cash.
  14. Shame on Sheffield United. Although they’re owned by an Al Saud... so no surprise they’re not joining in
