is there something patronizing about celebrating atypical football players like xabi? like to not only refrain from beating up call girls, but to actually read books and drink coffee
hes clearly an intelligent, relatively thoughtful 30 yr old man, it shouldn't be so unexpected

Which footballer was it who attempted to read Ulysses again? Something in my mind is telling me Kevin Kilbane but I'm sure that must be wrong.

I think ILX predates David Moyes, it was created in the Walter Smith era.
Liverpool have had five managers in that time. Spurs have had eight.

Another shocking display from United tonight - I think Big Ron's days in the job are numbered. And I suspect that one day in the distant future he'll accidentally broadcast some racist abuse.- Ned Raggett, 4 November 1986 21:42 (26 years ago) Bookmark Flag Post Permalink

I can't believe I was daft enough to say Moyes at EFC predated ilx -- he's been there for 11 years, I forgot that ilx was over 12 years old.

I think Kendall will struggle at Bilbao; Colin Harvey is the tactical brain in that partnership. I have no such fears for EFC - the squad is strong and with the impending addition of Barnes and Beardsley (where else would they go?) I can't really see anyone challenging us for the next few years. I think we may match LFC's 16 titles by the late-'90s! - Michael Jones, 18 June 1987 17:55 (25 years ago) Bookmark Flag Post Permalink

i am watching the highlights of the liverpool game, they don't look any great shakes in this one. but they have looked better lately (easy to play when their season has been over since whenever, though?)
