RE: PM approves of police tactic of ramming moped-riding criminals off their bikes

Yeah, agree. Was only a matter of time before this was a 'headline.'.

RE: Everton: A new beginning for the 2018/19 season

Yeah, a draw the fair result.
Unbelievable howler.
(btw, it's not that Origi hasn't played since the beginning of last season, he played quite a bit - just not for Liverpool)

It was a good match, much better than most of the recent past.  That's the difference with both sides trying to play football..

Agreed - but important to note it's a story, not a documentary of him/them.

RE: Bohemian Rhapsody (Freddie Mercury story)

Saw this today.
Despite the reviews  mostly being fairly average, I thought it was excellent.
Rami Malek was amazing - and the last 20 mins or so, you just don't want to end..
Really should be seen and heard on the big screen.

I remember This Is Your Life from way back when and remember the awkward looks on the faces of the guests as they failed to recognise the voice of the person speaking - sadly this was pretty much full of them. :( :( :(

RE: Haunting of Hill House (Netflix)

My god, this is just incredible.  We're 7 episodes in and can't wait to do more tonight.
It was an episode or so before I got to know who was who - in each time period too - but still loved it.
I hadn't read this thread (thankfully no spoilers..) but watched Ep6 last night and I just thought 'This is some take..' but didn't say anything.  It then went on for another good few minutes so I mentioned it to the wife (who was probably watching between her fingers....).  It still carried on for another 7 or 8 minutes with amazing camera work, acting, lighting, writing, directing - everything.  I can't imagine the tension as they were 15 minutes or so into a scene, just praying it all goes right to the end.  I can really imagine the actors and crew creeping around the scene behind the camera, the children hiding and coming out when needed etc.
Brilliant stuff indeed.

"Siggurdson's is better than that..."
Yes, as a 'hit' etc. it's a great strike and definitely 'better' than Ramsey's for me.
As a 'goal' though, the Arsenal goal, as a team, is superb.
Interesting really, what makes one better than another?
I THINK, for me, when there's such a team build up so well executed, I tend to like them more - unless it's a seriously ridiculous bit of skill at the end..

Thanks Rob, I've put you down as my referrer. :)
I think you get the credit once I've actually transferred and made a payment - so a month or two?

RE: [VIDEO] Stan & Ollie

Love L & H.
Went to see a stage version of Sons of the Desert about 4 years ago and it was superb.
Ollie was played by Michael Starke (Sinbad from Brookside!) who absolutely nailed him, probably more so than the trailer above.
Looking forward to this.

RE: The waiting begins... :)

Not sure about any of them - I thought they had their own degrees/training and if you went into one of them from medicine you'd had a change of heart.
i.e. if they were what you wanted you would train specifically in those fields.

RE: The waiting begins... :)

Thanks everybody!!

What else can Medicine mean snaps (unless there's a change of heart/plan)?

Alfie, I just read Adam Kay's book (wasn't familiar with the name tbh) and I have no clue why anybody would put themselves through what junior doctors put themselves (and their families/partners) through.
From one line to the next it's hilarious and then heartbreaking. A book everyone should read - This Is Going To Hurt.
It's not one I think I'll recommend to the daughter though... :(

RE: The Official Liverpool 2018/19 Season Thread

Great result and performance.
And "Last season's players seem 'business as usual" seems right too.
Keita was superb too.

RE: The Official Liverpool 2018/19 Season Thread

Pretty sure Liverpool gave no s***e about concussion, they merely went along with the findings of a doctor's assessment.
Happy they replaced him and the way he was backed publicly instead of slaughtering him I have no problem with either.

RE: The Official Liverpool 2018/19 Season Thread

What was it you weren't impressed by?
The way they backed him completely publicly (unlike some managers we could name who think nothing of shattering young players' confidence publically) - but replaced him with the then world record priced keeper?
Or the amazing reaction he got when he came on as sub in the last game?
Would be glad to see the back of him personally and would rather have Mignolet as No. 2.

"Just shows that the most important signing we made is Marcel Brands."
More than the manager?
Not sure about that - but it shows the importance of not only having someone there who you know is going to be there for a while - but also can attract players you otherwise simply wouldn't have been in for or got.  Countless examples of that at Liverpool with Klopp.

The Official Liverpool 2018/19 Season Thread

Very excited for this season.  Think we've spent the Coutinho money really well - we'll have to wait and see.
A promising pre-season and some promising youth performing really well - especially the likes of Curtis Jones.
There's only so many places available in the squad so hopefully the likes of Harry Wilson, Jack Woodburn, Ryan Kent and Ojo in particular can benefit from a good few games on loans to help us in the future.
Last season's players seem 'business as usual' but so happy with some of our signings - Alisson should make a real difference but I have a feeling Shaqiri could play a bigger part than many expect - he's an absolute beast and I'm sure Klopp will really get the most out of him. Keita looking every bit as cool as I'd hoped - and Fabinho doing well too.
Particularly loving Mourinho's constant moaning - especially about signings, and Liverpool in particular - all while completely ignoring the fact he's spent waaay more himself and the players he already has (p***ing off most of them in the process).  I really don't know if he doesn't know how good some of them are - or, as I think more likely, how to play and motivate them.
A good start is important to the season and looking at our line-ups in pre-season I'm sure Klopp's totally looking to hit the ground running and get some points up there early on...
Come on you Reds!!!
