    A new striker in January.

    Icardi would be great but he's well out of our league in terms of the transfer fee. Belotti's probably more realistic but he's had three seasons in Serie A and only scored a lot of goals in one of them. Last season he scored fewer goals in the league than Morata. I'm sure some of the players being mentioned are a case of the grass appearing greener on the other side.

    You mean the chance the goalkeeper saved with his nose? We probably do need another striker though and I'm sure Sarri is considering it. You hardly ever seen Giroud miss any chances but that's mainly because he's too slow to get on the end of anything. Batschuayi seems to have returned to his Chelsea/pre-Dortmand form at Valencia. Morata could maybe come good but not until he sorts his head out. I've no idea who a realistic target might be. I don't think there's any point blowing money on average/past it/unfit players like we did last season.

    Last Movie You Watched

    BlacKkKlansman is great. It's loosely based on a true story about a black undercover detective who infiltrates a KKK group in the early 70s, at a time when the Black Power movement is on the rise and racial tensions are heightened. The tone is not as serious as you'd expect considering the subject matter and it's actually very funny at times. The way it ended is very powerful and I had to compose myself for several minutes before leaving the cinema. I won't give too much away but the film finishes with a montage of material most of us will have seen before, but seeing it on a big screen and the way it contrasts with the positive mood of the film on the whole makes it feel particularly powerful.

    Ruben Loftus-Cheek

    He did say he’d be interested, to be fair. And it would definitely be interesting.

    What have you got against Pickle Rick? So that's Danny Drinkwater, Bakayoko, Pickle Rick, and (apparently) women in general that you have problems with. I normally block people like you very quickly but I'm finding your posts entertainingly ridiculous.

    Lame and unfunny seems to be his M.O.

    Alvaro Morata

    Out of those, the shot that went over the bar and the first header were the only real misses. The header that just went wide was desperately unlucky. The shot across the goal was not a realistic goal-scoring opportunity. And then there's the 'offside' goal. I'm not sure what our best option is. Giroud contributes more in build-up play but is much less likely to get goal scoring opportunities. Morata gets into good positions but has fate against him and seems to have lost all self-belief. We're having a great season so far but the lack of goals from the front is a bit of a concern.

    I went to see American Animals recently and enjoyed it. I went into it thinking it was going to be a conventional 'based on a true story' heist movie but actually it falls somewhere between heist movie and documentary. The film is about a group of students who plot over several months to steal some very valuable old books from the college library. There are short interviews with the real robbers involved interspersed throughout the film, and they provide insights into the way events are being portrayed and occasionally interact with the actors playing them, which was interesting. The portrayal of the robbery itself was very well done, extremely tense and chaotic.
  9. That could be a good thing. The pressure is spread over a larger area than if there was only one knee. Seriously? If a picture speaks a thousand words then a video speaks 100,000. It was clearly an accidental collision.
  10. Right, and I think we should also call them by their full name, which is 'Pan-Thessalonian Athletic Club of Constantinopolitans' . Or in Greek 'Πανθεσσαλονίκειος Αθλητικός Όμιλος Κωνσταντινουπολιτών'. Anyway I'm really looking forward to the match against Πανθεσσαλονίκειος Αθλητικός Όμιλος Κωνσταντινουπολιτών tonight. It'll be good to see a few fringe players get a run out in a competitive game. I have to be honest, I don't particularly care about the competition at all and the league should be our priority but I always want to see us win.

    This has cheered me up this morning. Few things warm the heart like the sight of Ronaldo crying.

    Welcome Emerson Palmieri!

    I forgot he plays for us, to be honest. It's a bit much to be calling him a useless signing though, with the way Alonso's flourishing in Sarri's system it's hardly surprising that he hasn't had a look in.

    I didn't see the match but have just read Phil McNulty's unbelievably hyperbolic match report on the BBC website. Surely Liverpool can't have been as awe-inspiring as he makes out?

    You can usually edit it yourself if you view your profile then click on the Edit Profile button. "Alternative thinker" is a great description by the way. I'm going to borrow that. Alternative thinking based on alternative facts.
  15. To be fair, Chelsea bearing Cardiff at home is hardly big news.
