    Where is Brad Smith?

    by Anas Dec 31, 2013 04:21

    Note to all: Yahoo Fantasy Football is run by two men and a dog. They get around to putting new players on when they can be bothered, and usually (though not always) only when they have played two or three games so they can be put on with 'phantom points' from the games they have played to allow a reasonable valuation, meanwhile it is the same playing field for everyone and no-one's team is being 'ruined'. Sheesh, anyone would think you were playing good money to play.....

    Right Back

    by Paddy Jan 12, 2014 17:01

    Hi Colyn,
    I don't mean they're the exact same player now, of course not, just saying that in this new position, Gerrard is resembling some of his abilities, and we're seeing even more in Gerrard's locker as he needs to adapt. Alonso is/was one of a kind, and I agree, his calm on the ball, and dictation of the game is unmatched. I do believe Gerrard is a better out and out defender, especially watching both LFC and Fail Madrid regularly. He's a far more rugged/physical tackler, and always heading things clear in the box. Xabi is less likely to do these things, but excels elsewhere of course.

    Either way, I think it shows that Rodgers has lost faith in Lucas back there, and that when Allen comes back completely, and he's in training now, he will probably work in, and then probably push Lucas out. With Gerrard in the controlling role, and Allen / Henderson's energy, pace, quickness and pressing, it could represent an upgraded style to what we do, and what we've seen.

    This can only be a good thing as Suarez and Sturridge look seamless together, and Sterling has been unplayable. Only Coutinho needs to step up more, with better passing decisions, and learning how to shoot into the net, rather than around it, or at the keeper.

    Each to their own Rikki.....each to their own.

  • I fully expect Man C to score at least 4 goal at home to Cardiff if not more. But which strikers will start. I feel Aguero might be eased back in again as a sub .so cannot decide between Dkezo or Negredo! thoughts

    by Netley Lucas Jan 14, 2014 02:39

    No he hasn't Vernon, he has served 2, the Cardiff cup game and the City game. So he's back wk 23 @Norwich. Bear in mind wk 23 is a midweek round, following the FA cup w/e.

  • I think Kun & Negredo will start. Dzeko played the full 93 mins v Blackburn so I'd expect him to be benched and come on for Kun around 70/75. Pell is just giving his news conference now, see what he says.

    I can see why AW is so keen on covering all the 'boxes' In defence. He has an abundance of talent up front and mid field in the side, and none more so than (has anyone here noticed?) young Gnabry. I can see why everyone is so hot on him, he has a real head on him for the immediate options, and moves like a Swiss watch. I thought about the kid Moyes keeps playing, and all the hype about him. Granted he can 'dribble' and can get around dumb defenders. But Gnabry is a different kind of player, if not far better than him. He thinks outside the box(no pun) and is strong and quick with it. I think we have an absolute diamond there, both now and in the future. If you shuffle all our cards together, ie. take a bench, and a team with everyman fit and blended together, maybe not this season, but we will be something to be reckoned with. A better more balanced side than both Chelsea, or Man City.....Now, certainly in defence..

    No I'm not Rikk...It's a straight forward question, I thought , wrongly it seems, you could discuss a subject..your views are your views, and if someone deviates from your view, it automatically becomes irrelvant because you can't answer it.

    I'll put the question to you again...How would you react if FOREIGN troops were patrolling your city every day (English troops are NOT Irish , therefore foreign !)........how would you react to it ?

    The question isn't hard, its a straight forward question, YOUR views on FOREIGN occupation...

    How to Eat a Rambutan

    Edited by John Comeau, Krystle, Jack Herrick, Sondra C and 14 others

    Rambutan, a native of Southeast Asia, now grows in tropical climates all over the world. The leaves differ from one variety to another, but the hairy or spiky red (when mature) fruits are unmistakable. Rambut is the Malay word for "hair". Try one next time you're in the tropics! In Costa Rica they are known as "Mamon Chino" or Chinese Sucker for the way the fruit is eaten and that they are like a lychee fruit from China. The fruits are abundant in Central America.

    Open the rambutan by removing part of the skin in any one of several ways. Squeeze the rambutan till the skin breaks. Then peel half the skin off, leaving the other half to hold in your hand like a wrapper. Find a seam running down the top to the bottom of the fruit, and pull apart the leathery skin. You'll find something resembling a peeled grape, but larger, beneath it Alternatively, use a knife to make an incision into the skin, and squeeze the fruit out. Eat around the seed. Avoid biting too close to the seed--you want to avoid the tough, papery skin surrounding it. Some people nibble at the flesh, others pop the whole thing in their mouth and spit out the seed when they're done. Some varieties have bitter seeds; others have sweet seeds, presumably containing negligible amounts of tannins or alkaloids. In the latter case, one can eat the entire fruit, seed and all (but not the outer skin). Try the Universal Edibility Test before consuming the seeds in quantity.

    Tips
    •If serving, leave half the skin on after cutting as a decorative holder, such as if serving it as part of a fruit platter.
    •The seeds are edible and good for the skin.
    •The fruit is not overly sweet, nor sour; it tastes something like a grape.
    •They cost 3/Quetzal, or about 4 cents each, at a market in San Pedro la Laguna, Guatemala (as of December 2007). This was one of the varieties with non-bitter seeds. In Costa Rica they cost about
