    I must have them all on ignore. Noone whose opinion I respect could doubt his ability and his importance to our squad.

    Agree, anyone with a football brain can see just what a promising talent Mount is. I did read some moran on social media saying something that he does not dribble with the ball. WTF?
    De Bruyne is not renown for his dribbling skills, nor is Kante ...Mount has great passing ability, vision and perhaps most appropriate for the modern game presses when he or his team do not have the ball. Some players just come alive when they have the ball but Mount is always alive, rarely see him just standing still like some other offensive players when the ball is some distance from them.

    So, somewhere on this thread I probably said I'd rather have my 11 year old in goal... 🤣
    well, I was half kidding, but he's pretty dang good. He's not much smaller than Kepa, I'd venture a guess he's a bit tougher..
    we took on Atlanta United's youth academy on Saturday night and he had a really good showing...
    (sorry for the proud dad moment)

    Don't worry Andy absolutely everybody else understood what you were saying. The smiley below was developed by Gem for Yorkley years ago when his senility first started kicking in.

    I obviously don't know for sure, but FL must have been interviewed for the position he currently occupies and I would be amazed if, as part of the interview process, he wasn’t asked or volunteered his vision for the future ........” where will we be in 3,4,5 years time and how do we get there ?” Presumably he did ok cause he’s sitting in the seat. 
    I don't imagine for a minute that its a coincidence that he has publicly drawn parallels to Klopp, his time at the Micky’s and how long it took him to go from also rans to CL & PL winners - so I am expecting that Frank will have a plan for the next 2/3/4 years , including recruitment etc that underpins his intentions (or at least I f**king hope he does!!) and that this will have been “agreed” by the board ?
    I’m hoping that the attacking recruitment the club has undertaken this season is stage 1 and that there are plans to recruit further next summer and the summer after until he has “his” team which will be title winners and smashing the CL too. 
    Maybe the club didn't see any value In what was available defensively during this window and that what was available (and at what cost) was no better than those already on board - hence the signing of Silva, which I don’t think was planned until very late in the day and maybe the youth/academy team coaches have a new JT in the wings that will be ready in a couple a years ? 
    Anyways, long winded way of saying , barring Roman being Roman, Franks in it for the long haul I believe - and f**king good luck to him !!

    Seeing as we finished 4th last season with Mount playing the majority of games, clearly he does get into a top 6 side.

    A mixed bag of a season for sure but an end result that we would all have taken had it been offered.
    Some ratings below and as usual I’ve left a few for you to do.
    This week’s bonus is an assessment of the Occupation of Optimal Predicted Suitability (OOOPS) or what the players might have worked at had they not been overpaid, pampered footballers. It is possible this has been done before, perhaps even by me, maybe on this site, conceivably recently. I genuinely can’t remember. I would have written that last sentence in white text back in the glory days.
    Kepa – 3 – All three points have been awarded for his reasonably ok distribution and for the four saves he made over the course of the season. Not that we should have expected more from a 5’4”, jelly-wristed, scaredy cat of an imposter whom most right-minded fans have never forgiven for his display of entitled petulance under Sarri. We now hold the top three places in the worst decisions in the history of football list along with Salah and De Bruyne.
    OOOPS – Calligrapher – An occupation where the ability to stay on your line is crucial.
    Zouma – 6.5 – The best of an extremely bad lot of central defenders. At least Kurt makes us all feel good, as we know that no matter how bad we were as footballers, we never made a 5-yard pass look so difficult.
    OOOPS – Barney – Kurt’s lumbering gait and genial manner would make an ideal children’s entertainer. The added bonus for us being that we wouldn’t have to look at his droolly, furrowed brow countenance. The added bonus for Kurt is when he overheats he can utter the hilarious line “I’m sweating like a pedophile in a Barney outfit”
    Azpilicueta – 7.5 – Solid enough display of pursed lips defending from our captain. You would imagine he’s a good man to have in the dressing room too. Since the resumption he has looked better going forward than at any other time in his career. A good servant to the football club.
    OOOPS – Logistics Manager – Solid, frill free spreadsheet maintenance from a lad who never misses a day.
    Alonso – 7 – Before the biggest game of my sterling career my coach walked out a 40 square metre rectangle on the left side of the pitch with the instruction that I don’t stray out of that area, but that everything that happened in there was my responsibility. I think Alonso had the same coach.
    OOOPS – Trapeze Artist – The one that catches, obviously.
    Christiansen/Rudiger/Tomori – 6 – Poorly coached perhaps, or just poor, or maybe poor seasons.
    OOOPS – Clerical Officers in the Civil Service – Doesn’t really matter which one of you comes in, or indeed what you do when you’re in, as long as one of you is here so we don’t have an empty seat.
    Kovacic – 8 – Balanced, controlled, intelligent modern footballer who wouldn’t have made Danny Blanchflower’s bench.
    OOOPS – Health & Safety Compliance Officer for the Diversity, Inclusion and Gender Equality Department
    Barkley – 6 – Never really kicked on from the 2 or 3 decent games he played for Everton. Has shown no appetite for the fight and has generally hidden throughout his Chelsea career. Happy enough though to pick up his sizeable weekly cheque.
    OOOPS – Schoolteacher – I’ll access healthcare services if needed, I’ll go shopping, use public transport, call the police, go to restaurants, all thanks to the underpaid staff, but I really don’t think it’s safe to have the kids back in school. I’ll just pick up my cheque then.
    Pulisic – 8 – One of the rare breed of footballers that actually look like they enjoy playing the game. Pacy, direct and effective it looks like we have a real gem on our hands. Seems like a gentle soul. Plus I’ve just seen he has a hot Mom.
    OOOPS – Male Nurse – I’d happily allow him to administer an enema, should one ever be needed.
    Hudson Odoi – 7 – Loz would prefer if had a tousled appearance and ran around a lot looking frantic. More discerning judges can see the talent, composure and immense potential.
    OOOPS – Maitre D’ in a Michelin Starred Restaurant in the Jardins de Luxembourg in Paris. Where his insouciance and air of ennui would be a distinct advantage.
    Willian – 7 – Frustrating, infuriating miserable bastard he may be, effective he undeniably is.
    OOOPS – Bus Driver – Sit on your lazy arse checking the mirror to inflict maximum pain on unsuspecting passengers. Look bored and grunt the odd time.
    Mount – 8.5 – Brilliant debut season and has shown great intelligence, a desire to improve and an appreciation of his own abilities. Wouldn’t have made Danny Blanchflower’s second eleven.
    OOOPS – Engineer – Everytime you look up the Wikipedia of a successful person they invariably studied engineering.
    Giroud – 8 – You don’t have a world cup winner’s medal without knowing your onions. Proper centre forward.
    OOOPS – Stunt Cock – Waiting in the wings for when the main man fecks up the money shot. The fact he is bearded would be a distinct advantage in the German market.
    Abraham – 7.5 – Really looked the part early doors and it is not clear as to why he fell out of favour. Definitely worth persevering with. Did show a slightly worrying tendency to the wavy arm.
    OOOPS – Aircraft Marshal – Following in the footsteps of Jimmy Hasselbaink’s dad, as revealed exclusively on this site, before the triangle was invented. Jimmy is the man whose goals got Atletico Madrid relegated.
    Lampard – 8 – Must resist the temptation to employ crybaby club legend JT to sort out our inability to defend. Urbane, articulate living legend who has made this car crash of a year nearly bearable.
    OOOPS – Golf Club Manager – Every golf club manager any of us known has been a top, top, all round great person and unfailingly attractive to boot.

    A mixed bag of a season for sure but an end result that we would all have taken had it been offered.
    Some ratings below and as usual I’ve left a few for you to do.
    This week’s bonus is an assessment of the Occupation of Optimal Predicted Suitability (OOOPS) or what the players might have worked at had they not been overpaid, pampered footballers. It is possible this has been done before, perhaps even by me, maybe on this site, conceivably recently. I genuinely can’t remember. I would have written that last sentence in white text back in the glory days.
    Kepa – 3 – All three points have been awarded for his reasonably ok distribution and for the four saves he made over the course of the season. Not that we should have expected more from a 5’4”, jelly-wristed, scaredy cat of an imposter whom most right-minded fans have never forgiven for his display of entitled petulance under Sarri. We now hold the top three places in the worst decisions in the history of football list along with Salah and De Bruyne.
    OOOPS – Calligrapher – An occupation where the ability to stay on your line is crucial.
    Zouma – 6.5 – The best of an extremely bad lot of central defenders. At least Kurt makes us all feel good, as we know that no matter how bad we were as footballers, we never made a 5-yard pass look so difficult.
    OOOPS – Barney – Kurt’s lumbering gait and genial manner would make an ideal children’s entertainer. The added bonus for us being that we wouldn’t have to look at his droolly, furrowed brow countenance. The added bonus for Kurt is when he overheats he can utter the hilarious line “I’m sweating like a pedophile in a Barney outfit”
    Azpilicueta – 7.5 – Solid enough display of pursed lips defending from our captain. You would imagine he’s a good man to have in the dressing room too. Since the resumption he has looked better going forward than at any other time in his career. A good servant to the football club.
    OOOPS – Logistics Manager – Solid, frill free spreadsheet maintenance from a lad who never misses a day.
    Alonso – 7 – Before the biggest game of my sterling career my coach walked out a 40 square metre rectangle on the left side of the pitch with the instruction that I don’t stray out of that area, but that everything that happened in there was my responsibility. I think Alonso had the same coach.
    OOOPS – Trapeze Artist – The one that catches, obviously.
    Christiansen/Rudiger/Tomori – 6 – Poorly coached perhaps, or just poor, or maybe poor seasons.
    OOOPS – Clerical Officers in the Civil Service – Doesn’t really matter which one of you comes in, or indeed what you do when you’re in, as long as one of you is here so we don’t have an empty seat.
    Kovacic – 8 – Balanced, controlled, intelligent modern footballer who wouldn’t have made Danny Blanchflower’s bench.
    OOOPS – Health & Safety Compliance Officer for the Diversity, Inclusion and Gender Equality Department
    Barkley – 6 – Never really kicked on from the 2 or 3 decent games he played for Everton. Has shown no appetite for the fight and has generally hidden throughout his Chelsea career. Happy enough though to pick up his sizeable weekly cheque.
    OOOPS – Schoolteacher – I’ll access healthcare services if needed, I’ll go shopping, use public transport, call the police, go to restaurants, all thanks to the underpaid staff, but I really don’t think it’s safe to have the kids back in school. I’ll just pick up my cheque then.
    Pulisic – 8 – One of the rare breed of footballers that actually look like they enjoy playing the game. Pacy, direct and effective it looks like we have a real gem on our hands. Seems like a gentle soul. Plus I’ve just seen he has a hot Mom.
    OOOPS – Male Nurse – I’d happily allow him to administer an enema, should one ever be needed.

    As everyone will note, this match has the potential to be difficult. Back in March, I looked at this one as a real tough place to get three points. The lack of home fans in attendance is a help. 
    This one may just hold the key to our Top 4 possibilities, and no, not wanting or counting on the City UEFA ban to allow the fifth placed squad in to the CL. Prefer to gain entrance with fourth or above.
    So, let's look at the run in. We will assume United goes on to win at Villa on Thursday, so with all three clubs on 34 games played, the table would like this:
     
    3. Chelsea 60 pts
    4. Leicester 59 points
    5. Man United 58 points
     
    Remaining 4 fixtures for each Club:
    Chelsea:
    July 11th - Sheffield United AWAY
    July 14th - Norwich HOME
    July 22nd - Liverpool AWAY
    July 26th - Wolves HOME
    Leicester:
    July 12th - Bournemouth AWAY
    July 16th - Sheffield United HOME
    July 19th - Tottenham AWAY
    July 26th - Man United HOME
    Man United:
    July 13th - Southampton HOME
    July 16th - Crystal Palace AWAY
    July 22nd - West Ham HOME
    July 26th - Leicester AWAY
     
    We know we must win by outright point total as we will lose on goal difference to either team most likely.
    The first GREAT thing that stands out is if we win at least three of the remaining four matches, for NINE points, we finish with 69 points AND we are GUARANTEED no worse than 4th with 69 points as there is no way BOTH Leicester and Man United can have 69 or more points as they play each other the last day of the season. If both Leicester and Man United win out until the last game of the season, Leicester will have 68 points and Man United 67. If we have 69 points, by winning three of four, the winner of LCFC-MUFC would jump us, but we are ahead of the loser, so fourth place. Or if they tie, we would likely be fourth on GD tie-breaker with Leicester.
    Let's project a little into the future for fun. Let's say we all win our next matches through game week 36, then we are third on 66, Leicester fourth on 65 and United fifth on 64 with two matches to go. Let's project a loss for us at Liverpool on Trophy hoisting day. United likely wins to go above us with 67 points. What does Leicester do? They could draw or lose at Tottenham. Let's give them a loss there just to make it more interesting, then you have United on 67, Chelsea on 66, Leicester on 65. In this scenario, we must get ALL three points vs Wolves OR have United get all three points. If everyone draws the last game, we are in, but if Leicester draws the prior week or wins at Spurs, we must take all three points vs Wolves.
    I know there are still a lot of permutations here to still play out, but I do not see United losing the rest of the way.
    So, again, it is all up to us right now. Win three of the four and we are Top 4. Period. 
    Lose at Sheffield United, and then you most likely must beat Norwich and Wolves AND hope Leicester drop all three points in their last two.
    So all of that "analysis" to say, Come on you Chelsea, tighten the back line lads and focus. Bring home all three from Sheffield!!

    No, none of your examples are acceptable.  Fund the care services properly and none of them would need to happen.  Accept a criminally negligent dogmatic government committed to an ill thought-out and irresponsible "herd immunity" plan and that just compounds all of the very real fears you outline above.  You and I, and more importantly, our press and broadcast media, should be screaming this from the rooftops and holding these criminals to account.
    No reasonable person can think that this releasing of the very loose restrictions that were applied too late in the first place is anything other than putting wealth over health, getting the plebs back to work, regardless of safety, forcing them to send their kids back to school despite there being no indication that this won't just generate a second, bigger wave of infection.
    You're wrong about Spain and Italy, they don't have higher death rates and they  didn't have the advantage that we had of seeing the progress in other countries.  The UK is internationally recognised as being the second worst affected, with only Trump's dystopian asylum having a worse death rate than us.  
    If you truly "want whatever measures that will put them at the absolute lowest humanly possible,", then that is Stay at Home, Avoid the f**kwits, provide regular test, trace and isolation for everyone found to be corona-positive and wait for a working vaccine.
    And demand that the government address this in the interests of the entire population and not in the interests of their own careers, or to stop making decisions now in order to blame-shift to cover their arses for when the country gets to the state where it can actually deal with a truly independent enquiry into how this was so massively mishandled.
    They have already passed the buck to you, if you die it is because you didn't stay alert, and are now blaming the scientists for giving the "wrong advice". 
    There is no level to which these people will not stoop in their self-serving desperation to cling onto power, appease the billionaire press magnates and hedge funds that need to avoid any EU scrutiny of their tax-avoidance schemes, and pander to the xenophobic Little Englander bigots who "want brexit done" regardless of the cost in human life and misery.

    Agree with you about the book. The opening chapters about his years in a children's home really got to me. And of course his horrendous battles with drink are harrowing.
    You wonder how much more he'd have achieved without the injuries (which basically prevented him training for about 10 years) and the alcoholism.
