  1. Everyone who has played Total War *DID* come up wth a more coherent battle. It was deeply tedious to read.

    Ketchup

    That's not especially weird. Feels like it'd be a great place to discuss it.

    Ketchup

    I lied, I have one additional contribution. If I am eating a fry up, I would much rather it was that really shit greasy spoon ketchup that's been vinegared to hell than legit Heinz ketchup. I think it's a better contrast to the saltiness of the fry up.

    Ketchup

    One of my old housemates used to order pizzas with a wide array of delicious toppings and then drizzle the entire thing in ketchup. It used to annoy me to a quite unreasonable degree. Also everyone at my work (I work in Huddersfield) call it "red sauce" which, to me, makes them sound like children. Regular tomato ketchup for me is right near the bottom of the condiment tier list and is only above the sauces I actively dislike. Outside of a fry up or bacon sandwich it is dead to me as a sauce because there is an unfathomably vast ocean of sauce out there waiting to be sampled and almost all of them are superior. Also do you remember when Heinz did green ketchup for a bit? I bought a bottle and never finished it because the green poster paint appearance of the sauce made it almost inedible to me even though it tasted EXACTLY the same as regular ketchup. The power of the mind. I have now exhausted my possible contributions to the thread, so will close out on my new slogan. Ketchup: It's condiMENTAL.

    Thought this was a fascinating watch: Also that Inter 11 is a list of incredible players whose names fill me with nostalgia. 2004-2010 were definitely my peak football watching years. Now I watch every Liverpool game and any other big matches I find the time for. Back then I would watch every second of European football I could get my hands on and could have named at the very least a first 11 and probably most of the squads for all major European sides. Good times.

    The Spurs Thread

    Can't believe it happened two nights in a row. Get in there Spurs. As a Liverpool supporter I thought last night would do me in and now Moura's trying to finish the job. After two nights of shouting at my TV like a crazy person (and blubbing like a baby last night) I think my dog has lost all respect for me.

    They showed Kenny singing it in the stands and it set me off again. It reminded me of my late grandpa and how he'd go misty-eyed recounting the tales of Dalglish's playing days. As a scouser with a grandson born outside the city, he took the responsibility of indoctrinating me into supporting the correct football club seriously and I am grateful for that. He then spent much of my football-watching life expressing his disappointment at the modern Liverpool's failure to reach those heights. I'm glad we got to see another European cup win in 2005 but he passed away last year and I'm gutted he didn't get to see this season we've had. Glad it's only the dog witnessing the state I've been in this evening!

    Yeah Matip didn't put a foot wrong tonight. I also love his signature Matip runs where a couple of times a game he'll run two thirds of the way up the pitch and usually pick out a decent option. Fabinho showed remarkable discipline to play so much of the game on a yellow, especially when you could see how fired up he was at the beginning. Even in the more dangerous moments he did exactly as much as he could possibly get away with but never more than that. Great performance, good shout for MOTM but I think there are a couple of candidates, Henderson and Mane amongst them. I think Shaqiri's overall performance was positive despite a couple of miscues. Some great delivery after that (including the ball for Gini's second and probably the highest workrate I've ever seen from him. It was Firminho and Salah's pressing I thought we'd miss as much as anything tonight when blood and thunder was the only way to approach the game, but Origi and Shaq did an admirable job of that. Also Origi's hold up play was so good at times that Bobby would be proud of it and he's a different kind of physical nuisance when that might be his USP in offering something completely different from the main three. My god Mane did some running though. I was exhausted watching him.

    Colossal performance from Origi even without the goals. What a night. Mane getting Semedo booked with sheer desire to get to the ball when Semedo’s only been on for twenty minutes summed up Mane’s shift tonight. Whatever happens before the end this has been so very very special.

    Nervy and terrifying to watch but what an excellent first half performance. Shaqiri's power bar issues aside it's been nice to see him put a shift in for a change. Origi's looked very lively both on and off the ball, great movement, graceful and composed dribbling and strong hold up play. Robertson and Henderson have been sensational and Mane is putting in the work of three men. A clean sheet would be a miracle here but I couldn't have asked for much more from Liverpool so far. Doesn't need pointing out at an Anfield European night but the crowd have been spectacular as well. Stop making me believe you magnificent bastards.
