  1. Looks like Leicester City got United's old pink shirts in the Maguire deal.
  2. Different times. We are a long way from the first caucus and/or primary vote. Lets say that Biden finishes 4th in Iowa and New Hampshire - but then goes on to win South Carolina - I don't think that is a winning combination heading into Super Tuesday.
  3. Its been said, and probably will again - this was not a VAR #### up - this was a rule change #### up. On the whole, I think VAR has done its job. My preference would be not to nitpick on the offside - even is on side, and if you have to freeze-frame, and draw imaginary lines to spot a hair off-side - that is not a good use of VAR.
  4. Replay got it right. Rule was changed for the worse. I did laugh at Pep in his post-match presser - he pointed out that this exact (non) call went against them last year v. Spurs in Champions league, when Llorente scored.
  5. Liverpool Doctors in Boston: "Adrian clearly suffered a concussion in the game."
  6. Starting to wonder if Liverpool sold their soul to the devil for the CL title: David Lynch @LynchStandard Klopp reveals Adrian got caught on the ankle by a supporter who slipped after invading the pitch. It's swollen and he may miss out tomorrow. Madness.
  7. https://twitter.com/michaelkruse/status/1162142928954974209 If this does not get you up out of your seat to vote for Yang, probably nothing else will.
  8. I mean - its not a terrible idea - long-term. Trump is not looking at it as a strategic resource - merely something to rename "Trumpland" But, I think there is merit to buying real estate, particularly if Denmark are struggling to maintain it...
  9. President Trump Eyes a New Real-Estate Purchase: Greenland In conversations with aides, the president has—with varying degrees of seriousness—floated the idea of the U.S. buying the autonomous Danish territory WASHINGTON—President Trump made his name on the world’s most famous island. Now he wants to buy the world’s biggest. The idea of the U.S. purchasing Greenland has captured the former real-estate developer’s imagination, according to people familiar with the discussions, who said Mr. Trump has, with varying degrees of seriousness, repeatedly expressed interest in buying the ice-covered autonomous Danish territory between the North Atlantic and Arctic oceans. In meetings, at dinners and in passing conversations, Mr. Trump has asked advisers whether the U.S. can acquire Greenland, listened with interest when they discuss its abundant resources and geopolitical importance and, according to two of the people, has asked his White House counsel to look into the idea.
  10. ...we used to sing Sha la la la la la la la la la la te da Sha la la la la la la la la la la te da, la te da (Bit by bit, by bit, by bit, by bit, by bit) (Sha la la la la la la, la te da, la te da Sha la la la la la la la la la la te da, la te da (La te da, da da da da da da da da)
  11. It could still be an outlier - the poll with Mayor Pete at 25% was certainly an outlier - but I think it is in line with Biden trending down, and Warren being the most logical person to pick up those votes in Iowa.
  12. Not the same poll. Change Research is the same polling company - but different criteria based on the client - in this case Iowa Starting Line. Last poll for Iowa Starting Line was in May - https://iowastartingline.com/2019/05/20/starting-line-change-research-poll-biden-sanders-locked-in-iowa-tie/ Biden and Sanders were leading with Warren, Buttigieg and Harris bunched together.
  13. Warren with a big lead in Iowa: https://iowastartingline.com/2019/08/15/poll-elizabeth-warren-jumps-out-to-big-lead-in-the-iowa-caucus/
  14. Looks like the Iranian oil tanker that the US wanted held is being released in Gibraltar.
  15. I think Prince Andrew's name has been out there for a while - thus its easy to put back out there. For as big a ring as people have made this out to be - I am more surprised that there are not a longer list of victims, making allegations against a longer list of perpetrators.
  16. Legally - this is the question that will be the focus: 104. The USSF has paid Plaintiffs and the collective less than similarly situated male employees performing equal work on jobs the performance of which require equal skill, effort and responsibility and which are performed under similar working conditions. The women have to prove that the male members of the USMNT are "similarly situated" in order to prevail on their claim. In their complaint, the women have couched the argument in terms of time commitments by members of both teams, that both teams play the same sport, and that the women are more successful. If push comes to shove - and I am not sure where the Women have left any wiggle room in their demands - I think US Soccer can win this without ever going in front of a jury. The skill and athleticism required to play for the USMNT is significantly higher than playing for the USWNT. That is something I think US Soccer can objectively establish.
  17. Still TOO many candidates to have any meaningful discussion in a debate format.
  18. Is it just me - or does Jordan Henderson look like he constantly smells like a dirty gym sock. 🧦 Might just be me.
