Especially since Chelsea have a few players in the same situation. I can see us going together to the different nations to allow them all to play with that game and then pay for private planes or something to fly them all out to by their training camps.

Thankfully he doesn't come across as somebody who would let it get into his head,you only have to look at how he reacted from the moment he was carried off & the updates he was giving from the ambulance and hospital bed.

Lad cracks me up.

Agreed. When people were discussing his lack of pace, it was interesting to find out he has extra training from a speed coach to work on his pace. Hes got the right mentality.

I was reading that being 18 will help him with his recovery and return to pre-injury is highly likely especially given the high level of treatment and rehab hell receive (also, the club doctor treating him on the pitch will have helped with the ligament damage). The biggest barrier would potentially be his own fear of being injured again. Any loss in confidence with his ankle will affect his performances.  According to this article (written by a doctor of physical therapy):

He recovered from that, then blew his knee apart playing for us.

Careers can still be ended or stunted though, Ox isn't the player he was before his injury

I have a friend who signed for City at 14 until he had a career ending injury (playing on the roodee in chester despite . This was back in the 80s and his ankle was smashed to bits not one or two fractures. He still was able to play at lower league level.

Yeh I have tried everything - and I honestly cbf contacting Disney to sort it out.

Just gonna bin my subscription.

Paramount just became available in Australia so I'll sign up to that instead.

They've got the A-League rights as well as the FA Cup - and they will be making a big play for the EPL rights for next season when they go to auction again in Aus.

Real debrid and an amazon stick/android box,your kids will still be able to get all their Disney stuff + a whole lot more and it'll only cost you 27 a year if you bought 180 days at a time

Yeah but has any other manager seemingly made it his lifetime ambition and lifes work to forge such behaviour into the dna of one team as Simeone has done with Atletico?
No idea, don't watch nearly enough of teams other than Liverpool to know if there's any worse than Atletico for that sort of thing. It's really irritating to watch, but no doubt it's not going to change - the football authorities don't seem very interested in stamping it out.

The 'potential for abuse' doesn't come from genuine trans people who have self-identified but not transitioned, but from men who could use the cover that declaring themselves trans would provide (ie, access to women's 'safe areas' like toilets/changing rooms/etc) to undertake nefarious activities for their own gratification.

Many/most women feel that way. Anyone who dismisses their fears and concerns from a viewpoint that 'trans rights' to self-identification trumps their fears/concerns is IMO tunnel-visioned.

This is certainly not the appropriate thread for this discussion, but just to offer my two cents on this, I would hazard a guess (have read as much but cant find any definitive figures) that the vast majority of bathroom harassment involving self-identified trans people in public bathrooms occurs towards trans people rather than by them or by someone who is using self-identification as a ruse.

Here is an interesting article on how the bathroom features heavily in discussions on civil rights - https://www.theguardian.com/world/2016/mar/30/transgender-ban-bathrooms-north-carolina-civil-rights

Liverpool FC Forum / Re: Naby Keita Watch
« Last post by n00bert on Today at 01:21:35 am »
Like most I agree that Naby is probably too enigmatic. During the pre-season games I thought he looked very good actually, and I think some of his form has translated to this season. The problem, in some ways, is that we sort of want him to be a bit like Gini/Hendo/Millie  - functional and 'doing a job' - and he's none of these specifically, and in some ways the best of all three combined. I think he's a better presser, a better short passer and passing through the lines, better technically, and will score more goals than all three.

That he hasn't hit the heights that have been expected of him is a combination of bad luck and bad form when given the opportunity.

Who knows though eh? Given an injury free season he might live up to the hype attached when he arrived. Or maybe he'll just be an 6/10 player and we got it wrong.

Again, using the Atleti game as a stick to beat him with is a nonsense, our midfield was pourous on that side of the pitch and to me speaks of an underlying issue with how we're currently set up. The quality managers are going to be able to find ways to exploit this (and Simeone is a good manager) and I'm sure Klopp sees a trend here that he'd like fixing.
