    @GiddyUp @Rhyme Animal put each other on ignore maybe.
  • Jippy reacted to Open Goal's post in the thread Kai Havertz with Like Like.
    Thats a conplete myth in my opinion. Just because some people flop, doesnt mean the Premier League is hard to adapt to. Look at Coutinho as a basic example. Amazing here, awful in La Liga. We love to big up our league as an extremely hard league...
  • That makes sense as a rationale in isolation, but when you see goals being chalked off cos the striker's toenail was offside, it's no wonder people bemoan the inconsistent application.

    Ah shite, yep week on Saturday. Good tip on the summer series though, cheers.

    I just finally read that Forbes interview. Wow, he talks some nonsense with the 'mark of the beast' stuff about vaccines (@Wibble rejects this theory) and his inability to utter more than two sentences without dragging God into the conversation.

  • Ah right, I can imagine the OC bubble is pretty gilded compared to most places. Things like the tube would be a culture shock to many outside of London here- a level of in your face and rudeness you don't get elsewhere in the country. It's...
  • Sweet FA in incompetence shocker.
  • :lol:It is a pretty sweet roundhouse when you see it from certain angles.
  • What sort of aggro? I was taken aback by the level of homeless in San Francisco and the sheer volume of homeless people absolutely off their heads, wandering along or collapsed on the street.

    It was cheap and arrived the next day, so I wasn't fussy!

    This one, but no idea what currency that is in. It cost be about £4 off world of books! https://www.amazon.in/Mice-Men-Mandarin-Classics/dp/0749320524

    Ah, bit late for me now. Like I said though, the book is about a quarter of the size of Grapes of Wrath, so no real surprise it lacks the depth etc...The version I got had a long foreword by Steinbeck's wife which was interesting though. The guy...

    I've only read Grapes and Of Mice and Men. The latter is only c120 pages, more a novella, and is a bit of a riff on the crushed dreams of the poor. Not sure of the timeline of when he wrote them, but he was certainly very socially aware. I guess...
