With Hope In Our Hearts…

  • Liverpool's ups and downs
  • We'll take it, too relieved to complain!!
  • Sunderland 1-3 Liverpool
    I don’t think we were playing any better than Wednesday overall, but the front two did their thing, Sakho was immense, Toure was class again. When Gerrard pushes up, we look so much better, but it does leave Lucas carrying an impossible burden, and one that we’re gonna have to pay a price for at some point. Alternatively, when Gerrard stays deep we look impotent and clueless. more »

Snakes & Ladders

  • Amazon: Is it inadvertent or deliberate cunning?0
  • Amazon – I’ve started to realize that if I’m thinking about buying a book or a record and I’m just not sure about it, that my first response now is to check the Amazon reviews and see if there’s a body of ingrates represented who either ‘just don’t get it’ or ‘just won’t get it’, guaranteed sale every time! But I am left wondering, is this deliberate cunning on the part of Amazon’s marketing staff, or just a happenstance peculiarity?

  • Sainsbury's: It's been a while since I thought kindly of them?0
  • Sainsbury’s – Well, they’ve just opened another bloody store, this time just across the road from me. That’s 4 ‘Local’ stores on my 20 minute walk to work, and a proper store 20mins in the other direction. Whilst it’s handy to have a corner shop that takes a debit card, a little bit of variety wouldn’t go amiss – Christ, there are other supermarkets!!! more »

    It could be argued we were on top for a fair bit of the match but we never seemed to have any bite. The difference Coutinho’s absence has made is rather worrying.

Lately I’ve Been Reading:

David Peace, Tokyo Year Zero (Tokyo Trilogy 1) (London: Faber & Faber; First Edition 2nd Impression edition (2 Aug 2007))

Having only read ‘Red Or Dead’ of his before, this was a bit different. The style was all very familiar, and very much intact. Having read this as well now, the bigger canvas seemed more suited to that style, and thinking back to ‘Red Or Dead’ it’s hard to see how that same style didn’t crush the single subject of the story, retrospectively it feels like an armoured battalion targeting a single sniper. Similarly, the mystery of the story meant that battalion was fully-employed to the very end, whereas with the fictionalized biography it felt like that battalion were going through the motions, firing round after round of shells into an already cold corpse. more »
