  1. The vaccines | vaccine rollout underway - US back plan to suspend patents

    You had to queue 20 mins and wait for 15 mins after benefiting from one of the most important public health initiatives, for free, all designed to prioritise your health, and that was unsatisfactory. Meanwhile people in this very thread are lamenting the fact their country can’t even get...
  2. The shocking decline of Trent Alexander Arnold

    The stats they flashed up last night on TAA suggest it wasn’t even that much of a rut, he’s been the most creative player for Liverpool this season. Obviously that’s a relative assessment but the relative assessment is important; he’s doing significantly worse because his team mates are...

    It’s a bit of an odd point, really. It’s not unreasonable to think Giggs and Scholes were better than those two - many would agree, but even many United fans would disagree - but even if they were, being in a tier below Scholes is hardly a criticism. The fact they were so productive was part of...
  4. Marcus Rashford MBE | 2020/21 Performances

    Yeah we won all of those trophies because Lampard and Gerrard were the weak links...
  5. Dean Henderson | 2020/21 Performances

    So he’s better at organising the defence, but in this game, when it was particularly important to organise the defence, he’s totally blameless for the defence being disorganised? Either he benefits from the defence organising itself, or he failed to do his usual job of organising the defence...

    Greenwood’s better at beating a man, or playing creative passes?
  7. Dean Henderson | 2020/21 Performances

    Can’t remember a more baffling goalkeeping decision all season than that Salah goal.
  8. Cristiano Ronaldo : The Juventus Chapter

    Do you really think Luis Enrique’s team played the same style as Guardiola’s? I thought the consensus was their midfield three were very passive by 2015 and the front three dictated the style of play, which was much more direct. Surely you don’t think they both played the same style as Valverde...?
  9. Elon Musk's epic bacon adventures

    Yeah turns out he was one of the least unfunny people on there. Amazing that it’s a staple in American tv
  10. Elon Musk's epic bacon adventures

    I don’t watch it a lot but seems a strange choice given he’s incredibly awkward and unfunny
  11. Mikel Arteta | Arsenal Elite level manager | Good Ebening Mikel

    Yeah it’s one of the strangest things I can remember. The emperor’s new clothes is an over-used phrase but really, these people must wonder what they were looking at all this time...
  12. Bruno Fernandes | 2020/21 Performances

    I'm not saying I have a more informed viewpoint than Bruno, I'm saying the people paid to track his fitness will have a different insight into his conditioning, and the management team will have to assess the players' and sports scientists' opinions in combination, and at times the players'...
  13. Bruno Fernandes | 2020/21 Performances

    The other way of reading it is he doesn’t know his own optimal physical state, he doesn’t recognise when he’s psychically tired but mentally alive, and he doesn’t recognise that tiredness contributes to more sloppiness. He’s just the kind of person that thinks he can shake it off, if he just...
  14. Jermaine Jenas in line to replace Gary Lineker as BBC's face of football

    He seems very critical of us, even in Europe, which is strange given he’s so transparently nationalist for everyone else. Maybe that’s what the average BT viewer wants but it does seem a little embarrassing to me.
