Golly, what fun (you see life up here, you do!)

Here in fact. I didn’t know who Steven Gerrard was: thought he was just some young bloke in some pubfight or other. I have had to be told…

Rule 1 for the BBC (and for everybody else). NEVER say anything bad about Liverpool (and especially LFC “fans”)


David Davis

Very sorry, but it has to be fisked. Even the Booby-See has had to eat humble pie, in the face of this onslaught. Whatever it is that’s bad that happens to Liverpool, or its people, or the fans and supporters of LFC, it’s NOt their fault, OK, geddit?

Field Marshall Viscount Montgomery of Alamein said the following:-

  • “The U.S. has broken the second rule of war. That is, don’t go fighting with your land army on the mainland of Asia. Rule One is don’t march on Moscow. I developed these two rules myself.”
(spoken of the US approach to the Vietnam War) Quoted in Chalfont’s Montgomery of Alamein.[38]

He ought also to have said:-

“Never say anything bad or deleterious about the City of Liverpool, its people, or its foot ball supporters; they are functionally incapable of evil-doing, even when in Sheffield, and even if the harm was to each other. I also developed this rule.”

If UK football was this self-regardingly-transparent, then every manager and player in “League Division 1” would be in jail.

McLaren is being got at because is it part of the Anglosphere, and the Franco-Germans plus their hot-headed Latin drivers*** can’t stand the loss of face, girls, money and pre-capitalist-barbarian-warlord-adulation. For no other reason. The greatest F1 driver ever, a Mr Schumacher, an anglo-saxon who is from Germany, and who has no peer in his field at this time, ought not to be sullying his name by re-associating himself with the win-crazed-nutters at Ferrari, and their hanger-on in “Europe” who have it in for Anglosphere teams.

Perhaps in a libertarian world, there will be an alternative series, comprising English Public Schoolboy drivers, and any cars they can scrape together for a bit of a jape. Then we’ll start to get somewhere in a few decades as it matures into sponsorable racing.

***Oh, and Rubens Barichello does not count: he is so old, and so experienced,  that he has become English.

There is a case for this stuff being _not_ newsworthy


UPDATE2:-  __AND__   is this all that he can pull? Saddo, handsome guy, you can do better than that…what about yer missiz? (Much better crumpet.)

 

Yeh it was late and she was game and, er ....

_APART_ from other considerations, it features one private tragedy in the life of a Human Being, for whom the only justification and reason for an act was the decision to commit it. Borat-casting it benefits nobody else.

(I can’t remove the underlining sorry)

I mean this sort of stuff, here. Here, we have a moderately competent foot ball-ist (I suppose?) who has merely done what it’s widely known that these people do, since after they have scored three goals and they can’t then do ought-else, they go and get drunk outside an expensive pub in somewhere called “Lond-on”. Sometimes it’s “Manchest-er” or “Liver-Pool”. Same difference. But “Lond-on” ensures faster publicity.

Come on, get out more, lighten up: the poor bastards have got to get rid of their money somehow?

The trouble is, the continual reporting of this will cause more of it, and crowd important people like Rutger Engels off the Wireless Tele Vision. Everybody knows that televising of a drink being drunk will cause people to “drink more” – just read old-man-Rutger for the newest lowdown. So, televising a foot ball-ist called Ashley Cole laying waste to the Met outside a bar will cause people to do the same, no?

It’s bullshit, but exactly what does it mean….?

It’s here. And here’s an extract:-

However, Benitez believes Liverpool are still in the title race despite dropping two more points on their rivals and Chelsea and Manchester United winning their respective games with comparative ease.

“When you are top of the table you know that every single game is really important so when you lose two points you have to be disappointed,” said Benitez.

“But we have an important game on Sunday and if we play like we played in the first half we can beat anyone.

All the games will be important until the end of the season. It depends on the other teams too but we have to try to play well and try to win.”

After beating Newcastle 5-1 at St James’ Park in early Dec, they led the table by three points but Wednesday’s draw condemned Liverpool to their seventh draw in 10 league matches and their fourth on the bounce in all competitions.

“We were much better in the first half. We had control of the game. We didn’t kill the game,” he said.

“The second half was a crazy game and when it is a crazy game you cannot control things.”

When he was pressed as to what was the crazy element of the second half the Spaniard refused to comment.

“No I am disappointed with a number of things but no, the Wigan approach I will not talk about them,” he added.

“It has happened in the last three games. They have something in common I don’t like. I know why but I cannot say anything.

“The players were okay. They were working very hard in the first half but the second half changed because it was crazy.

“I was talking with my players about what to do on the pitch but there are things that you cannot control.”

Wigan manager Steve Bruce paid tribute to his team’s battling spirit.

“The resilience of them was there again,” said the Wigan manager, who in the last week has lost striker Emile Heskey and midfielder Wilson Palacios in the transfer window and had goalkeeper Chris Kirkland sidelined with a back injury.

“We have had to make five changes – big changes – from the team that played 10 days ago.

“The one thing they do is stick at it and have a right good crack at it. In the last 20-25 minutes they really got the bit between their teeth.

“Lee Cattermole got amongst them and tackled everything that moved. It was a decent performance from us.”
