The Daily Cut and Thrust / Re: A HAPPY NEW YEAR OR A SOW'S EAR?
So again we weren’t very good.  Blackburn are clearly worse than Wigan which helps.  I actually wasn’t that concerned today after we scored the third.  Even when Worrall had his boo boo.  

We definitely need some aggressive wingers to take the pressure off us and help us with the counter. 

I thought our third goal was fabulous and what a wonderful cross from Sammi.  Having said that we still look lackluster at the moment.  Sow is so important for us.   I hope he stays healthy because otherwise we could be lacking when we need it.  I would draft in Colback if he is doing nothing, a rapid winger and go with a nasty forward to help Grabban. 

We are getting results and not playing well.  This could be a good sign or it could be fatigue.  Only a mentalist would play the first team against Chelski. 

And I thought Robinson was fine today but as always Brice Samba is a god!!!

MOM:  Grabban of course.

Chicago: Keeping up appearances.

PS:  I don’t need to do a FA cup thread as Rich Original tea biscuit already did one when the draw was made.
The Daily Cut and Thrust / Re: The Happy New Year thread

Actually I think we should put on this thread what we think or would like to do in 2020.  Our 23rd Wedding anniversary will be on January 23rd.  Spooky!  I will be 49 in May but turn 50 in June (fcuking frightening).  I hope to go to Australia for that landmark birthday assuming it is there and for the end of the year I will be embarking on a trip to Antartica before it melts. 

Forest will be on course for promotion only for Jingo to get excited and start posting march threads.  This will be an exciting time for Forest fans as it will lead us to probably cock up the playoffs but somehow still be the most interesting season for nary a time.

I will also be monitoring my good friends in Britain because of Brexit and hoping for the best when the US election happens in November.  If it all goes pear shaped then maybe I will stay in Antartica and end up preserved like a popsicle.  I was going to say Lolley but hopefully Joe will do better than the world is currently heading. 

Anyway me old muckers, hoping for the best for all of you. 



PS.  You are all still cnuts.

Knightfall is acceptable swords, guts and violence. And has the benefit of Mark Hamill as a grizzled Templar bad ass. Like a nasty Obi Wan. Also an interesting view on the madness of religious zealotry.

Yep anything that rubbishes religion is alright with me.  Count me in.

Whilst not a Netflix series The Expanse on Amazon Prime is the best thing on television ...errr streaming...err entertainment.  It is so fcuking good.  Not really any tits and fanny but thoughtful science fiction, intrigue, politics, conflict, swearing and of course the requisite violence when called for.  It's ace.  And of yeah I have the books too so there is plenty more to come.  Top notch entertainment.

Chicago: Expansive. 
The Daily Cut and Thrust / Re: Them there t'other clubs

I believe the Wolves player's arm (possibly just hand) was offside.  Since you cannot score with your hand or arm for that matter then the goal should have counted.  When you are measuring millimetres it's time to turn off the lights.  They don't even show the replays on the screen at the stadium.  The whole thing is a joke.    LiverVARpool will win the league but not without help it seems.

Get rid of it.  It's sh!te.  The whole fun of football is the immediate.  Mistakes happen and with VAR the refs are just getting lazier and not doing their job anymore. 

Let's go back to what makes football exciting again (shall I make a red hat out of that?)

Chicago: Living in the now. 
The Daily Cut and Thrust / A HAPPY NEW YEAR OR A SOW'S EAR?

It's quite obvious we need Samba Sow back stat.  He has a thigh bruise.  Those buggers can last or eternity.  It would be nice to go for it again sh!tburn and then rest all of the first teamers against Chelski.  I mean we are not going to win that game are we so why bother.  Give the kids a run like Mighten and Johnson.  Mir , carvalho and Bostock can play their last games for us in the cup.

In this game we have to play Lolley, Silva and Grabban.  I wouldn't mind Jenkinson come in and push Cash up field.  I would bring back Robinson for this game and possibly put Chema in the centre with either Joe or Figgy.  Chema for all his faults can really pass the ball.  In fact I like him.  I may be tempted to drop him into midfield.  Yes you heard it here first.  Watson looks likely to play and hasn't broken yet.

Luckily for us Dack won't play.  BB?  Has he even featured for the Chicken squad yet?  I think the miserable spaniard broke him at Forest. 

I say squeaky bum time again and either 1-0 or 2-1.  We need some energy and then some rest.  We look a tad broken.  Whig wham were much better than us and we need to build on getting through these challenges. 

Kick, run, kick!  

Chicago: Attritional.   

The Daily Cut and Thrust / Re: Them there t'other clubs
Wait till it saves us from relegation from the premiership after Tom Lawrence punches the ball in, in the 93rd minute. Nobody sees it, including the ref. Video referee overrules.

As I've been saying, everyone has been wanting this for years and f*cking years. It's going to take some time to get right.

To start with who in the Prem would Tom Lawrence be playing for and it was quite obvious a while ago that VAR was w@nk when our Chilean player at the time visciously punched a player in a tournament before the last World Cup and no-one did anything. 

It needs to be binned like Brexit.  How much evidence do you need to know it’s not working?

Chicago: Acting in Real time.

The Daily Cut and Thrust / Re: Them there t'other clubs
No Jim we can’t.

Sheff  Poo just got robbed by VAR too.

This needs to be binned.  It’s dogsh!t.  

Chelski best Arsenal with a player who shouldn’t have been on the pitch to equalize.  Jorginho dragged back the Arsenal player already on a yellow and since he has one didn’t get a card.  Every other player who did the same thing got one.  The prem is inconsistent weak and sh!t when it comes to refs and VAR.  utterly ruining the game.

Chicago: Bored.

The Daily Cut and Thrust / Re: A wig wham walloping!
I am riding my luck though.  We need Samba Sow back stat!

I am wondering if we need to rotate against sh!tburn. 

And of course some serious recruits in January.  A nice little winger, a forward and an angry Colback.

And oh yeah if you are going to play Carvalho play him as a 10.  On the wing he is next to useless.

Chicago: Recovering.
The Daily Cut and Thrust / Re: The Film Thread
Watched a few films over the holidays.  Long shot with Seth Rogan and Charlize Theron is surprisingly funny and sweet.  Also Miss Theron is well a bit good to look at.  I think the long shot refers to sperm but don't quote me on that..

Hustlers starring Jennifer Lopez is a waste of time.  Yes she looks great and her stripper moves are worth a w@nk but the film itself is a bit of a duffer.  She is my age and I have to say I would even though i know she would be a giant pain in the arse... (someone must be doing it wrong..)

The Downton Abbey film is actually fine.  Wifey wanted to watch it.  I didn't hate it and it was pleasant and did have some genuinely funny moments in it.  Much better than I thought it would be.

Onto Netflix.  The Irishman.  Yes it's 3 and a half hours long but I really liked it.  The first two hours are terrific and it does slow down somewhat but for what it was it was very well done.  No idea why is cost $250 million to make but certainly better than some of Martin's other films.  I watched it over two days but would have been content viewing it in one sitting.  (work got in the way.)

6 Undercover starring Ryan Reynolds and being a Michael Bay film is an abomination.  It doesn't make sense.  It has no soul and has action all over the place but left me totally cold.  The bird in it is ace though.  I might have to look her up.  Adria Arjona.  Yummy. 
I really think Michael Bay should not be allowed to make films on the basis of him not being able to put anything coherent up on screen.  What an awful waste of money.  He should have stopped after the rock, or the nicholas Cage vegas film or after discovering Megan Fox.   awful.

Lots of dinosaurs to go around but none for Michael Bay.

Chicago: Suffering from myxomatosis. 
The Daily Cut and Thrust / Re: What I have learned today
He is putting Americans first for a start.

You might want to get off facebook and read real news.  He is a fcuking terrible president that is crooked, has most of his cabinet lining their own pockets, Having his family make deals that have nothing to do with the national interest.  Pardoning known criminals.  Peddling an agenda against the poor and making his rich friends wealthier and taxing the sh!t out of everyone else.  Also his trade wars are putting the farmers out of business and his environmental policies are introducing toxic chemicals back into the air and the water supplies.  He is also aligning himself with dictators like Putin, Eurdogan, Kim Jung Un and cutting off aid or help to people who fought and continue to fight radical muslims (your favourite subject), (The Kurds..) allowing them to be slaughtered.  He is also worryingly firing military commanders who tell him that he is doing terrible things and is really really stupid.  He doesn't seem to know anything other than to wind up the opposition.  He says he is not the president for the people of the United States but for his side.  The side where he can profit and cause ruptures against civilized states.  He is the perfect Manchurian Candidate.  A thick one at that.  But really you love him because he's racist don't you?  I bet you do. 

His pardoning of the Navy seal who wantonly murdered civilians and was called evil by other Navy Seals causing the Navy commander to resign is disturbing to say the least.  Also his tax cuts fcuked most of his supporters.  There is no health care here to speak of unless you are very rich.  He also probably knows that if he doesn't win the 2020 election he is going to jail for massive money laundering and criminal offences.  If he stages a coup (look at all the generals and military officials being forced to leave), you would probably love that because I guess being a fcuking criminal is cool in your eyes.  Yeah he's great....

Chicago: Pinko. 
The Daily Cut and Thrust / Re: FISH FINGERS!

Just saw the game.  Thought we were pretty good in the first half and scrappy as poo in the second.  Sow really is a dynamo for us.  grabban was superb and his second goal was rather good.  We indeed did a "ull on "ull as predicted. 

Let's just hope our shooting boots are on against the draw specialists at the bottom. 

Oh and Jeff's a cnut.

Chicago: Like a blind Mystic Meg. 
The Daily Cut and Thrust / A wig wham walloping!

Away from home they are sh!t.  We have been nice recently.  This ends!

Smoochie needs his job.  We need Smoochie.

3-0.  Lolley x2. Grabban.

Chicago:  Coming thick and fast.
