  1. Totally get why Spinazolla is in there, but that feels extremely harsh on Shaw. I'd probably have him up there in contention for player of the tournament not just in the team of the tournament. Lukaku being in there is very odd.
  2. Can only imagine that it's because they know how well they're admired amongst the general public and in their communities without all of the media noise. Knowing that people like Darren Grimes are on the right wing grift in a way that's familiar to them through their experiences with shit like TalkSport probably helps as well. In some very specific ways, we really do live in a different era now for the better - as scummy, hypocritical, and pandering as the sun is for doing it, they're more or less forced to put out a 'we've got your back' headline because that's the nations mood now and we're

    Copa America

    Mad to think what Messi could have won with Argentina with a moment going the other way here or there or with Higuain finishing properly. It could have been 3 Copa Americas and a World Cup I think. Great to see him finally get one with Argentina which is probably a weird way to look at it when it's a team sport, but he's had so much 'hasn't done it with Argentina' noncesense for years that its good to see that one ticked off the list. It seems fitting that it was probably the worst performance I've seen him have in a final that ended up being the one where they won. Am I right in thinking that
  4. All of it's haunting me like. It feels like a match that had about 10x more 'ifs' than usual.
  5. Donnarumma Walker Bonucci Maguire Shaw Veratti Pedri Forsberg Sterling Schick Chiesa
  6. As time goes on this feels more and more devastating and a massive opportunity missed. Italy were the better team overall, but I look back on our first 45 minutes and Italy's chances created with all the possession they did have overall and wonder exactly what the hell happened and try to wrap my head around most of the decisions Southgate made. What changed where there was a need for England to change their approach from the first half? It felt like, aside from being a little too direct when on the ball, we were in control and limiting Italy to pointless possession, wayward passes
  7. Pretty relieved tbh. Opinions differ and all that, but I really didn't want someone like that anywhere near the club and the city, whatever the temptations were. Absolutely shit, dragged out bollocks without fans being told a single thing as usual though, which is typical of how all fans are treated across football. Disgraceful.
  8. Right up until it affects them and their material interests and they suddenly become all for the social safety net. I know you're sure that were fucked to the point of people putting up with living in shit so long as someone else is worse off, but I think that has to have a limit.
  9. Not sure what food for thought there is there beyond Angela Davis having a different opinion to me and others on the left, but I do appreciate you thinking of me.
  10. Huge loss, this. Guttening. Probably the most informed and active of the commentators on the left. 37 as well ffs, just horrible.

  12. Definitely. That's why who they are and what their political histories are is important imo. In a sense. My initial question concerned whether it's something to actually be concerned about as a Democratic voter and fairly old-school leftie. Whether, as you say, we should worry that liberals are "buddying up" to these people and eventually embracing them as the good guy. I just don't think that's a thing. The above discussion about Russia rather points up the difference - for whatever reason, Trump is clearly "buddying up" to Putin and seems to have embraced him as just enough of a good gu

  14. That wasn't suggested tbf, Putin being a monster is a given, but that doesn't mean that the right thing to do is escalate the situation. At the same time, the right thing to do is also not letting Putin continue to do this shit. For me, there is often that underlying binary theme with these types of guys. I had to constantly deal with their drivel after I got back from Libya, so I am as mistrustful of them as much as I am mistrustful of the motives of The Lincoln Project (my suspicion bells always go off when George Conway tweets something. Why the fuck would he stay married to such a
