  1. Me too. Their ability to get answers comes from them having played the game (although not the other Chris), therefore the interviewee can relate to them very easily. This allows for a relaxed atmosphere and leads to candid discussions. Where all 3 of them fell way short with Marshall is that what happened to him is serious and relevant outside of football. A more astute line of questioning or focused follow up could have really made some inroads. I'd have to listen again but I think that Brown (ex "striker" one) kept repeating some throwaway line rather than delving in. The Kilgallon one
  2. I do enjoy these podcasts. Once you get over the identikit personality traits and the football specific diction of whatever player is being interviewed they offer a decent insight into the game. I finally listened to the Ben Marshall one. I think that if someone with a bit more skill than Chris Brown(s) and Jon Parkin (not that they are bad, but they aren't Jeremy Paxman) was asking questions Marshall could have opened up a lot more. It's no shame that he decided to give it all up, but I wonder if he'd have sought out help earlier if he would still be playing. Whether you play
  3. Winning 5 in a row could very well happen. History says that his death spirals end. When they do Rovers turn into the league's best for a few weeks.
  4. Yep on Tuchel. As every game passes is becomes even more obvious that Lampard was out of his depth. He jumped to Chelsea too early but I don't blame him for trying. He's ambitious, competitive, and has the confidence that he can succeed. He may yet turn good but he needs to spend a few years earning his corn. Ewood maybe? - Not likely I know. As for Liverpool the injury line is true yet their front 3 have forgotten that they score goals by getting into the box. Salah and Mane spent most of last night hugging the touchline, and Firmino just past the centre circle. They seem to lack p
  5. I watched an Oasis documentary last night. I have no idea if it was UK or USA produced but I liked it. It chartered their beginnings and ended with their Knebworth concerts in August 1996. Noel and Liam both said that Knebworth should have been their last gig.
  6. This alone points to the latest death spiral getting back on track. 2 or 3 more bad results to go before the tide turns and Mowbray's Rovers start showing promotion type form for a few weeks before fading once relegation is mathematically avoided and summer holidays can be booked.
  7. I don't know why I did that. I knew that he'd gone. His old assistant Butler has the job until the end of the season. He's a local lad, ex-captain.
  8. I had a look at the League 1 table earlier. It looks all to play for at both ends of the table. League One Table - Football - BBC Sport Stanley's playoff hopes are still alive. They sit in 7th but their games in hand advantage has been lost. Doncaster are one place ahead of them. Peterborough are top. 6 games ago Doncaster had 2 more points than them, now Posh has 12 more. I wonder if Darren Moore can get Donny firing again.
  9. Mowbray does seems to have lost something. Don Said's old posts yesterday were eye opening. Mowbray isn't a Prem manager because of his flaws. These flaws are being exaggerated at present. Why does he keep changing formation? Pick one and go with it. Personnel may change but their roles once playing shouldn't change. I got a text of a Boro supporting mate last night. He asked how Rovers did. I told him we lost and are sitting in Championship purgatory. His reply; "Ah, mid-table Mowbray. That's what he does.".
  10. Left on most things? I must be interpreting your posts wrong then. As I said yesterday when you use terms like "mainstream media" that come straight from Fox News and its ilk I can only infer that's where you get it from. Tucker Carlson, much like a lot of Fox News, doesn't report news, he is an opinion host tasked with in making himself and the channel as much money as possible. He does that by manipulation, scare tactics, and downright lies. Jon Stewart had him pegged years ago. Both sides do bad does not make it equal. Trump was horrifically bad. Biden has been in less than a mont
  11. The whole senile, Harris will take over in 2 years argument isn't based on anything other than lazy conspiratorial thinking. The same happened with Hillary Clinton. Republicans had her on her last legs. Even Trump had to defend his mental competency. Many on the left accuse him of having early stage Alzheimer's. Reagan went through the same, although he actually had it. More conspiracy mongering. You often repeat tried and trusted right wing talking points (the media! Democrats are bad!) as well as using quite a bit of Fox News lexicon. Where do you get your news from? What
  12. I said it yesterday but universities going back was a diabolical decision. I have a bit of a cynical bent when it comes to universities; US ones anyway. I see them as money making machines with a secondary function of providing people a degree. US universities would have been put under massive financial strain without full tuition payments. Due to this they advised everybody to come back then got mad when kids - who are not 100% innocent - went out and generally acted like uni students. My local university asked private landlord tenants to shop kids who were seen to be hosting gath
  13. USA researchers concluded the same thing a week or two ago. Kid to kid and kid to teacher transmission rates are very low. Mask wearing, hand washing, ventilation, and spacing are key elements. Where I live kids are going back on 8 March and teachers become vaccine eligible next week. Younger children do get it, but you are right. They are less likely to have symptoms and can pass it on, although nobody knows how easily. Sending students back to uni was an absolute joke. They should have all stayed at home and authorities should have concentrated on getting schoolkids back.
  14. He has a job at Liverpool as long as he wants it. Liverpool fans love him, and rightly so. I think that he is brilliant. It is hard to win back to back titles. Doing it without the world's best central defender is even harder. There's a thought amongst some Liverpool fans that the pandemic has cheated them of a real chance of continued success. Without it they'd have splashed the cash over the summer. The Champs League exit to Atletico and no crowds since caused FSG to hold the purse strings. City and Chelsea have oil riches so can spend whenever (FFP anyone?). FSG are a bit mor
  15. Scientists can guess but they won't do much in the way of predictions until they have data. The CDC (US disease experts) updated their guidance yesterday; CDC is aware of recent reports indicating that persons who were previously diagnosed with COVID-19 can be re-infected. These reports can understandably cause concern. The immune response, including duration of immunity, to SARS-CoV-2 infection is not yet understood. Based on what we know from other viruses, including common human coronaviruses, some reinfections are expected. Ongoing COVID-19 studies will help establish the freque
