    Liverpool Football Club Thread

    These are all good points. But he's my pal and I had to ask. He's also close to giving up so there may be have flights available if anyone wants to PM me. At cost, straight transfer. The thought of being there as the only one who can't get in is a bit too deep a cut. I was kinda hoping Liverpool fan pettiness wouldn't emerge, but knew eventually there would be enough of it out there for it to revert to type. Even as you bunch stand on the stage of victory. The rarified air and all that... But the chances of survival over a long enough time line etc.etc. Anyway, thanks to the kinder hearted ones out there. You bunch are alright.

    Side note, but I used to daydream about hearing "Womaniser" by Britney sung in the club style. I mean, it's 70% there but I still wanted to see Vic give it a run out

    Football Thread 2018/19

    https://youtu.be/hfnrY8ISR9w This info graphic shows Liverpool's (and United's) dominance in terms of spending (with the former with fuck all to show for it). Now the boot is on the other foot, it send that it's ok to decry the formation of a new dynasty just because they've done it better.
  4. Oh mergerd. I don't think my body can sustain Quentin shooting Margot Robbie.

    That's dreafully decent of you. Already sent the link. Not sure how far his Liverpool deparavity goes. And whether he is at the irredeemable level of actual online football forums. But if he isn't, it's not like he can be "a bit pregnant". Remember, it's for him you exceed expectations. Not me. So keep negging that first post you bunch of fountain tossing, ambulance turning, second place no-marks. PS - Peace an love to you decent sorts!

    Liverpool Football Club Thread

    Right. This is a public service message on behalf of my oldest and dearest friend Matt, not for myself (the forum has documented that generally I don't get on with you lot). Anyway, I went to university with three Liverpool fans who have fucking plagued me for years. These three lovable morons have got flights and accommodation to the Final. TWO of these world class bozos even got tickets through the public ballot. That leaves my best and oldest pal Matt without a ticket. He's the godfather to my kids and I feel rotten for him. He's a genuine fan and as one of "The Welsh" he's even got a signed Toshack shirt on his wall. I've not promised him anything but if any of you know someone who has a final ticket but has to drop out at the last minute, or is expecting a baby, can someone let me know (or point me to a site that can help?). He's a genuine fan, and was flying on spec just to be there (the daft bastard). I'm hoping someone attached to this thread could help one of your own. Not me, I think you lot are rotters and I'm glad City won, but it would give him such huge pleasure and it would mean he isn't left out of an experience I know he'd cherish for life. It's what his Best Man is supposed to do, even years after discharging his responsibility. Even if it's Liverpool. I didn't know where else to ask. To dare is to do right (sorry, wrong team). If you're worried about selling it to a scalper, I think Matt would be totally happy to make a call with you. Come on you Reds (ticket holders)! Up the Villa!
  7. Those thinking Bran had a hand in The Bells simply have nothing to go on. Just like the Night King/Bran theories. There has been sod all to substantiate these bigger theories and they won't and can't spend time on a left turn like that. The only way Bran would pull a Bran is if something happens adjacent to him, but I don't think they're gonna march back to Winterfel for that. Which leads me to believe unless Sansa comes down south to agitate for Jon, that's the last we've seen of her. All the writing is so proximal now. It's all blunt force trauma. Besides, why would Bran give a shit. He's not Bran anymore.
  8. Maybe the problem is that she was always set to reclaim her throne. Not take it. With Jon in place she had nothing to claim, and therefore no legitimate leverage; she isn't trusted and the not so thinly veiled racism that Cersei expresses about The Unsullied and the Dothraki speaks to her as well as an outsider. She's always been about the Throne. It's not at surprising as it may seem.
  9. She knows his wife! It's more awks than Lord of the Rings.

    This is the end... Good and bad TV endings

    Oh, and on this subject, I gave up with two episodes to go on Breaking Bad. It just started to undermine his character (I liked Walter when he was in control) at a time when I wanted apex criminal mastermind. I've since YouTubed the final scene. It was much better that what preceded it. Oooh. Has anyone mentioned Band of Brothers? The entire voice over of what happened to the 101st after the war was delivered beautifully by Damien Lewis. And that final quote by Major Winters, crushes me every time: "I cherish the memory of a question my grandson asked me the other day, when he said: 'Grandpa, were you a hero in the war?' Grandpa said, "No, but I served in a company of heroes."

    This is the end... Good and bad TV endings

    M*A*S*H did it perfectly. I think more Americans watched the end of M*A*S*H than watched the moon landing. I can't watch it without welling up. Charles' dignified departure and kind words to Potter, Clinger opting to remain in Korea, the bitter sweet ending for the padre. When Hawkeye and Hunnicut salute Col. Potter, oh boy. The Wonder Years was also really good. It's faults are obvious, but it's warm, delivers such a gut punch (Kevin's Dad) and the voiceover is just so well judged and delivered.
