|Liverpool sign Iraqi wonder kid ...|
at 10:21 17 Jan 2020
Jurgen Klopp flies to Baghdad to watch a young Iraqi boy play football. Kloppy is suitably impressed and arranges for him to come over.
Two weeks later Liverpool are 4-0 down to Chelsea with only 20 minutes left, Klopp gives the young Iraqi striker the nod and on he goes.
The lad is a sensation, scores 5 goals in 20 minutes and wins the game for Liverpool. The fans are delighted, the players and coaches are delighted and the media love the new star.
When the lad comes off the pitch he phones his mum to tell her about his first day in English football.
'Hello mum, guess what?' he says 'I played for 20 minutes today, we were 4-0 down but I scored 5 and we won. Everybody loves me, the fans, the media, they all love me.'
'Wonderful,' says his mum, 'Let me tell you about my day. Your father got shot in the street and robbed, your sister and I were ambushed, beaten up and now your brother has joined a gang of looters, and all while you were having such great time.'
The young lad is very upset. 'What can I say mum, but I'm really sorry..'
'Sorry?!!! Sorry?!!!' screams his mum, 'it's your fvcking fault we came to Liverpool in the first place!'

|FA Cup 3rd round ... Swansea 2 v 2 Crystal Palace 5th January 1980|
at 12:43 5 Jan 2020
40 years ago today we drew 2-2 with Terry Venables "Team of the Eighties" Crystal Palace at the Vetch, which was the beginning of 3 epic FA Cup matches.
The replay at Palace ending 3-3, and the 2nd replay, a lively encounter for both players and supporters ๐ at Ninian Park ended with us winning 2-1.
|Leeds 2 v 1 Swansea FA Cup 1970|
at 13:24 4 Jan 2020
50 years ago this weekend, 03/01/1970 we were robbed once again by absolutely shite refereeing decisions which denied us of a memorable FA Cup giant killing.
Leeds United: Sprake; Reaney, Cooper; Bremner, Charlton, Hunter; Lorimer, Clarke, Jones, Giles, Madeley. Unused Sub: Yorath.
Swansea Town: Millington; Lawrence, Gomersall; Slee, Nurse, Thomas; L. Allchurch Screen, H. Williams, Gwyther, B. Evans. Unused Sub: Rosser.
Referee: Mr D.A. Corbett (Wolverhampton).
A wonderful day out, great match (despite the result) and a brilliant trip back on the train with goalkeeper Tony Millington. ๐
I just wish the excitement of the FA Cup that was alive and well 50 years ago was still here today.

Great to see Glamorgan's Marnus Labuschagne finish the year with the most runs in Test cricket for 2019. He scored 1104 runs @ 69.94.
He's not started 2020 too badly ... He's 130 not out v New Zealand.
