Looks like it:

Rodgers on Joe Gomez: "Seeing him, in particular close at hand and his personality – he’ll be staying, he’ll get games."

I was dying for LVG to come in and pay 10m for him in Jan. He was our worst defender last season. His mistake's against Stoke and WBA (I think) alone could have sent us down. I hope he comes back and can play again at some sort of competitive level but happy not to have him on our books, when his over hyped world cup made him feel far too good for us.

Re: English Football 2015/16

That was just some guys opinion about how James isn't the one introducing politics into football.

How are the national press reporting this? Worse than ISiS!

fair enough. I too thought he was overhyped, but he did boss around ppl at the World Cup. Gotta give him that+yelling at strikers who flop around in the penalty box is a huge + for me

It will be a sad day when Henri Saivet retires. He was my go to guy whoever I started my managerial career with. 4mill and in 2-3 years he was the next Thierry Henry

Ings off the mark for Liverpool. https://vine.co/v/e6iK77pImrD

That's a nice option for us, someone who can run in behind like that.

Good for us perhaps, we were being strongly linked to him before this. Although, the thought of Yoshida getting too many minutes this year is a little frightening.

Re: English Football 2015/16

If we do sign a striker I'd like to see Wilson loaned out to a club like Villa.

Re: English Football 2015/16

Blatter thing is awesome.

OT (kind of)- I know about The Troubles in a fairly superficial way, but it's always been interesting to me and I have to confess I don't know a great deal about it. Can anyone recommend any good reading on the subject?

I would imagine it would be one of those things that may vary greatly depending on which side's account you're reading. Maybe best would be to read something from each side? Is there anything longform nonfiction-wise that's been written that is generally considered authoritative or unbiased?

Voices from the Grave.

Peter taylor from the BBC did a 3 part series which is worth a watch.

Ross Kemp extreme world did a show not long ago and it's probably close to what you want in terms of not being bias.

In the name of the father with Daniel Day Lewis is a good film too.

There are several players from all walks of life, religion, race etc at football clubs from England or any other country for that matter. Many of their own countries have been at war and what not and don't turn their backs or refuse to wear Poppy's. It's not exactly hard to just stand there like every other one of his team mates.
