Great OP. Absolutely fantastic. I'd like a feature where I get a notification every time Yorkie posts on football and simultaneously puts him on ignore in the political threads 😄 ( only joking Yorkie).  Seriously though this was ace, I will never be able to think of Barkley again without envisaging a ring through his nose.

As an aside it reminded me of a ferry journey back from Cagliari to the Italian mainland after the Italia 90 1-1 draw between Ireland and England. We had an interpreter with us and he translated the Italian sports papers reports of the match. It's amazing the similarity in the adjectives used in those reports with the La Marca piece Yorkie "quoted". Latin football obviously marvels at and struggles to understand the intensity of the british game as much now as it did then. It's comforts me that the commercialisation of the game and the rule changes haven't completely eroded what makes it different.

Of course our interpreter hadnt access to google translate so while he might have got more of the Journalist's nuances, he would have missed any Paladean emotions.

Thanks Yorkie.

Ha ha. You probably remember (that arsehole) Platini in the Goodison stands in the mid-1980s when the BBC asked him to comment on a ferocious Derby. I think we won 2-3. The man was in a state of catatonic shock. I think it was soon after this that he floated that idea of eliminating tackling from football.

Don't remember Platini's comments but that was the era when I regularly travelled over from Dublin with a gang of mates, red and blue, to the Derbys at Anfield and Goodson. If it was the one where we led 3-0 then I was in Goodison that day. Somebody said back then that Merseyside derbies started at a Hundred miles an hour and got faster! The first half the other night was a throwback in that regard except Everton had a bloody good team back in the mid-eighties.

Yorkie, old Michelle would have lasted 5 minutes in some of the derbies of old imagine the poor sap caught between Larry Lloyd and Mick Lyons. Pulled hammy or what
And as I rise above the treeline and the clouds
I look down...
