The Daily Cut and Thrust / Re: SWAN BRICKING!
That was beautiful and Ameobi definitely should have scored.  Swans are for the taking but we need to take our chances.

Chicago: Impressed.

Sow the destroyer almost got us in.

Commentary back to Forest which is nice.

Yikes Samba the keeper just turned into Muric.  Scary!

Chicago:  In the action.

Whereabouts is the gallery? Can she not relocate (I know, easier said than done)?

Is it Karen (?) at Cupola? Only woman-owned gallery I can think of!

Yes it is Karen.  That is indeed my sister.  She tried to explain the situation.  It sounds like a mess.  Tricky has met her at a pub.  At the time he seemed amazed that we were related.  If running Trentend wasn't 22% more expensive to maintain I would ask him to try and get a Talkback fundraiser going but alas we all have our own crosses to bare. 

Although if the pound gets any weaker I might be able to scratch enough together to make a difference..

Chicago: Counting the pennies.

You and your family seem to get into some really odd situations Chicago.

My sister’s art gallery is in Sheffield.  She explained a little in instant messenger. I am too far away to do much .  As for odd situations?  I live in fcuking America where everyone is bonkers.  I am the sanest man here.  Markus is joking.  He knows I am pretty together.  Unfortunately my family are nice.  Everyone is a cnut.  I am guessing my sister got swindled in her lease agreement.  Trying to find out more but she indicated that there are two landlords which is just bizarre.

Chicago: keeping it all together.

My sister is leasing a space for her art gallery and the foundations are crumbling.  For some reason she has to come up with the money to prop the whole thing up.  She is stuck with a 40 Grand bill.  But she’s the leasee?  I am
Confused why she needs to pay for this.  She doesn’t own the property.  She has been there many many years but good God.  Is this even legal?  She has started a fund raiser on Facebook but I think she is really going to struggle to get the money.  Her contemporary Art gallery has been in business for 30 years.  I lent her money to start it from investment profits I made as a yoof.  I feel really bad for her. 

Chicago:  Not rich enough to help enough. 
The Daily Cut and Thrust / Re: The Film Thread
The Guardian has published it’s list of best films of the 21st century.  It’s an interesting list.  Some though are so boring I would rather watch my face melt.  Although I really liked There Will Be Blood especially for that insane ending I wouldn’t consider it the top  Triceratops..

Full list here:

Chicago: Filing it in. 
The Daily Cut and Thrust / SWAN BRICKING!

Well it's Jeff approved Thursday so we turn our thoughts to the weekend and a trip to the league leaders of Swansea.  They beat Leeds and we didn't but according to stats they have been quite lucky.  We also have super Brice Bamba in goal.  He is a God amongst Muric's. 

So with some preparation we should have a game plan.  They have a bloke who played for Kosovo and like the rest of that team runs around like his house is on fire.  It could have been,,, I mean there was a war there....  Anyway...

1-1 and Smoochies run continues.  It won't be pretty but then again we don't always play Birmingham city who apparently have won loads of games since we tw@tted them.  There is no justice let me tell you.  No justice at all.

Lolz with the goal.  (or super Albert).

Chicago: Usually an animal lover.  
The Daily Cut and Thrust / Re: This Europe Stuff
I think it has been mentioned on here previously but isn't it that a lot of politicians don't want the EU bill investigating dark money and shell companies and tax loopholes and whatnot to come into effect.  I think in January 2020?. (or sometime soon..)  The bloke behind this whole mess was in the Panama papers wasn't he?  Cameron.  Didn't he have money in Panama and Iceland amongst a few things and some (if not all) of the Brexiteers run shell companies that is used to funnel money from unknown foreign states.  It might even have been in the Guardian. 

That also seems logical too.  I hope that we are still in the Union in January because I would love to see what crawls out of the gutter in those investigations. 

None of the motivations for Brexit are for the people.  That much is certain.  I would love Parliament to call Boris's bluff and say if you don't extend we revoke.  And Revoke when the dim witted tw@t tries to pull a fast one.   The HBO drama Brexit stars Benedict Cumbersnatch as Dominic Cummings is on demand here.  I think I shall give it a gander.

I feel helpless watching this sh!t show.  I really hope the courts hold true and democracy is given a chance.  It's very stressful over here reading about this stuff I can't imagine how it is for a lot of you.  Tricky is obviously losing it a little bit but I totally understand it.  Maybe we can ask Brid to procure us some spare Novichok from Canterbury and send it back to Vlad with interest.

Chicago: Combing the papers. 
The Daily Cut and Thrust / Re: World Cup 2019
I am texting with my Kosovo Friends from They think they might win 10-9.  They could be right!

This really is a very amusing game.

Chicago: unhappy to go back to working.
The Daily Cut and Thrust / Re: World Cup 2019
I see Manchester United’s most expensive signing is sh!te then.

As for Sterling he has never really managed to translate his club form into international performances until recently.  The turning point may have been against Spain.  This is the first England game I have watched since the World Cup so yes his improvement is pretty startling since then.    After all I do work 15+ hours a day as you know.

This is turning into a rather entertaining comedy game.

Chicago: Catching up.
