    Football - Stolen Taxi for Pardew

    Glad I didn't wake up at 7:30 for that. Hopefully the manchester derby is better

    Cricket: ODIs Are Proper Cricket Edition

    I don't expect a win, I just want it to be at least *slightly* competitive when the batsmen go out there.

    I hope we're not pants again in England this summer

    Man, the french national team is insane. Their squad is full of talent.

    Meant to say this with your earlier post but it seems the whole headbutt interview thing that Smith and Bancroft did certainly seemed to have rubbed people the wrong way? At the time I thought all of it was fairly harmless tbh, especially Bancroft in that interview. It seemed all to be a bit absurd and a joke, but reading some of the english papers etc, it certainly seemed to be viewed fairly negatively. Like I didn't get the big deal about the press conference.

    I think Gillespie wrote an article for the guardian about how some senior players were outraged/ angry or something that they had been implicated; saying that he had personal knowledge that a player felt that way etc

    Yeah, using the term 'leadership group' is him trying to take the responsibility off himself a bit. I just don't understand why they thought they would get away with it. It also *seems* like Bancroft was told to do it mostly because he's a new player. When the DRS thing happened against India, I can put that down to a spur of the moment thing, but now I'm more inclined not to and believe Kohli when he said they had done it multiple times during the test. Do we see Smith losing the captaincy permanently?

    I love how he says 'leadership group' - I'm astounded that they went with this at this time, where *everything* is under scrutiny. It's so dumb.

    football: transfer madness!

    Yeah, I always thought if it's a 'rebound', it's 'offside', whereas if there's an 'attempt to play', it's not. Parsing that difference clearly isn't easy. Yikes - Kane 100 percent dived there after that though, just seen the replay

    Did you listen to what the linesman said to the ref for the first one? He clearly said 'Chalk of the penalty if lovren didn't touch the ball as Kane was offside" - the ref then made the decision that Lovren *did* touch the ball ( linesman also said 'he can't confirm if Lovren touched the ball and left that decision to the ref), so it wasn't offside - they haven't shown the replay of Kane's dive, so I'm not sure about that yet but it did look like one. ( Now I'm trying to figure out what the rule actually is re: other players touching the ball)

    Wait, it's not offside if Lovren touched the ball, right? For the first one, I mean

    Those subs by Klopp didn't really help did they? VAR might not help with dodgy penalty calls, but offsides will certainly be fewer if it's implemented
  13. Anyone listening to The Ooz by King Krule? It's an amazing album. This guy is scary good. Here's my favourite song off it.

    ‘Ocean’s 8’: the female-driven caper spinoff

    *Love* that trailer, I'm a big fan of the ocean's movies ( Ocean's 12 is a hill I'm willing to die on). I'm hoping it isn't a rehash of the previous movies ( a bit concerned that they might try and replicate the relationships between the men in the previous films) , and would have preferred if Soderbergh was directing,but this still looks good. Edit - I guess what I'm trying to say is that I want this film to be different, and I don't really trust Ross to do that, but still going to catch this at the theater ( Really don't understand why *anyone* would want Roberts in this movie. I don't think she added too much to the previous ones, tbh)

    Football: Just Slaven Away

    Pls lose this weekend. Though now with Lacazette out, we're probably not going to do well
