Re: The #LUFC Breakfast Debate (Wed 1st April) Soccer chiefs locked in talks regarding specially designed zorbing suits

A great manager will take his players and beat yours, then take your players and beat his. Bielsa is a great manager.

That being said, I was at the Huddersfield game, and anyone who saw that game and came away from it saying Huddersfield are better at most positions is just plain daft.

Re: The #LUFC Breakfast Debate (Tuesday 31st March) Too much strain to complete EFL remaining fixtures

What's wrong with finishing up the current season whenever it becomes possible to do so? If we can push this season back, certainly we can push the 2020 - 2021 season back, too. We could be back on track by September of 2021 quite easily.

Re: Authors of Fiction

Le Carre has elevated his art form. Far more than just a thriller writer; he has absolutely captured the zeitgeist of the cold war. His work will live far beyond our time. Don't get much time to read fiction as my job requires that I read a lot of academic papers, but I recently discovered an Englis...

Re: Guess the Brewery and/or Beer

Have to say that when I was in England I quickly came to the conclusion that, not only is the beer/ale much better than in the US, it's served at the proper temperature. American beers are served so cold that whatever flavor it may have had gets lost. English cask ales are fantastic. I miss them mor...

Re: The #LUFC Breakfast Debate (Wednesday 25th March) - Leeds held talks with Ibrahimovic prior to January transfer wind

When your budgets and investments are predicated on an income of X number of pounds per month, being asked to take 0.3 * X is a serious imposition, regardless of how large X is. I applaud the players being willing to take the pay cut. It's damned generous of them. I would be less sympathetic if the ...
