Yeah that was good, thanks. Hearty lol at this:

Klopp, plainly, is no Mourinho. Last week he did a “Jürgen Klopp answers the web’s most-searched questions about him” video for Soccer AM. Asked “What is your favourite film?” his answer was immediate and decisive: “Forrest Gump! ” Somewhere out there, José felt his lip curl without knowing why.

It is the best, humour and insight and great interviewing. I listen to them even when it's a sport I have zero interest in.

Ken is just great fun to listen to, yes even his baffling mancrush on David Luiz

especially his irrational enthusiasms or dislikes, his scathing takes on silva are great

Am I missing something or did the podcast stop six months ago? Last one on Spotify was 15th September.

Never mind found the website. I forgot people had websites for stuff.

keep forgetting that richie, who is brilliant while never in any way appearing ill at ease with his ladness or striving for a pose (contrast with ken who is the very model of a fella looking for the mot juste and the big statement) has his MA in pyschotherapy since he retired

such high quality regulars, such a great blend and so at ease inter alia

i sometimes think about whether it would be plausible that there could ever be scottish football/sports journalism that could even touch second captains and there's just no fucking way

findom haddie (jim in vancouver), Friday, 10 May 2019 23:50 (six months ago) link

but i mean why not!

Scoop: “It has set off a bomb. Fuck it’s tremendous” – The Athletic guts the football teams from the Guardian, the Daily Mail and the Times.

We can reveal latest to exit are BBC’s David Ornstein and Guardian’s chief football writer Daniel Taylor.https://t.co/pcuTr9uN9H

One person briefed on the Athletic's plans told BuzzFeed News the US site is hoping to get 100,000 paid subscribers to fund its ambitious expansion into English football coverage.

Two sources said one subscription price point put forward would see subscribers pay “about £4 a month … or some sort of package where a reader pays £50 a year”. One source described it as “Netflix-like” pricing.

“They’re banking on a passionate football supporter willing to fork out £4 a month for some scoops about their team, and quality feature and match day writing,” the source said.

I don't think I've ever read an article on the Athletic.

Le Bateau Ivre, Wednesday, 17 July 2019 19:51 (four months ago) link

Number None, Wednesday, 17 July 2019 19:56 (four months ago) link

Ah yes, I see. Wondering how many people will want to subscribe to read "soccer" articles tbf

Le Bateau Ivre, Wednesday, 17 July 2019 20:04 (four months ago) link

I think you mean "how many people will have want to have been going to have read BBC an Nult"

the liverpudlian scribe will have watched with some consternation as his peers in the british football press were poached by the upstart american outfit. he will have felt that his career will have been going to the proverbial dogs

bookmarkflaglink (jim in vancouver), Wednesday, 17 July 2019 20:41 (four months ago) link

Yeah that's how you will have wanted to do it

jou're much too jung, girl (Noodle Vague), Wednesday, 17 July 2019 20:42 (four months ago) link

jonathon wilson comparing pep to darth vader via some torturous analogy today.https://www.theguardian.com/football/blog/2019/oct/07/pep-guardiola-manchester-city-darth-vader-death-star-dark-side

oscar bravo, Tuesday, 8 October 2019 09:05 (one month ago) link

it's like there's no point beating Man City because somehow it's all down to them and fuck all to do with your own performance

Goose Witherspeen (Noodle Vague), Tuesday, 8 October 2019 09:22 (one month ago) link

love wilson obviously but that is a fucking torturous analogy
