Another one for football, overuse of the word 'crisis' and everything surrounding it. Unfortunately this trend means Klopp's job is not as safe as it should be right now, but I think the owners can see sense. Half the legendary coaches in the game's history would be tarnished if that kind of 24/7 media existed back then.

The team have been playing well enough, just one of those months where a ball the other side of the post here or a ball hitting a different part of an opponent's shin there creates wildly different headlines... never been to the circus so I'll take the word of any critics who call the Premier League that...

And on a slightly more serious note away from football... looks like large furnaces make fantastic Pie:



Thoughts and prayers for the patron saint of this thread.

The annual 'Christmas starting early' thing. This year seeing decorations/adverts/songs popping up in the first half of November (even saw the odd shop starting before Halloween), just why?

Although it has produced a pretty good 'ridiculous from all angles' story of the week.

Presumably, despite its undoubted abhorrability, this cynical aggressive retail strategy gets results.

And it does kind of make me want to try one of those Jesausage rolls...

Had one yesterday, not my last supper (as of right now it's my most recent lunch though), nor was it the miraculous world-changing sensation they advertised it as. Just an average sausage roll really. These advertisers...

Those whole celebrity allegations right now, it's disgusting but not too surprising (Hollywood establishment system & cover-up shocker). Ordinarily couldn't really care less as long as justice gets served.

And then it turns out John Lasseter might be involved, thought Pixar were meant to be different 😢. It does make you wonder how deep this really runs. Less of a mystery is why this guy might feel the need to take advantage of every brief moment of female proximity he gets.

But to play devil's advocate, while what he's admitting to isn't right in the workplace, is 'hugging too long'* really deserving of being conflated with the Harvey Weinsteins of this world? It's just as Pie foretold:



*Spoiler alert: Lotso Huggin' was the villain in Toy Story 3, maybe that was Lasseter's Freudian slip.

It's just the season for throwing people under the bus before checking to see if the bus driver is back from his fag break.
