Nice to be Nice ?
"It's nice to be nice" was a favorite saying of one of my friend's Dads when I was a kid. I agree with this for the most part, but not in the case of Premiership football managers, and especially not when it is the Liverpool manager.
Houllier on the 3-2 defeat to Charlton:
"I don't think we deserved to lose. The result doesn't reflect what the game was about - we got the performance right but not the result."
Sorry Gerard, but if you lose 3-2 to Charlton, you haven't got the performance right. And when you are managing a gang of people getting paid 40,000 pounds plus a week, it is okay to be ruthless.
Japan Still Fucking China
Newspapers are reporting a massive hotel orgy in China, with Japanese businessmen and Chinese prostitutes forming the cast, all on the occasion of the anniversary of the Manchuria Incident. Bit of a boo-boo that. Bad timing, definitely. But with the local prostitutes earning the equivalent of 2 months' salary in China for the night and the Japanese Salarymen on Asian Sex Tour getting to take part in a dream orgy for just $125 dollars a head, it would seem that, morals aside and economically speaking, everyone was a winner.
This news is generating a lot of discussion.
