Wolf said he can't do Monday morning coffee, so I'll put up a fill in that isn't as good as what he normally does (and the TLO communities sends out it's best wishes to wolf as he deals with family stuff). Treat this as an open thread type thing, to take off on any tangents that crop up throughout the week that we want to discuss, but probably don't need to be clogging up and threadjacking the fine posts from our beloved TLO masthead, like when Neb needs to go in depth on the history of the Assyrians, Babylon, and other ancient societies.
And with whatever you want in mind, I'll bring up an idea I had. Maybe someone with better skills and creativity than I had can expand on it for a beautiful post. But my basic premise is along these lines. Remember the South Park episode where Kenny was in a coma so he could command the armies of heaven against those of hell with a golden PSP? And we haven't seen Jose Enrique around all year, have we? Not even in a box at Anfield, cheering on his mates? Maybe because he had to be whisked away in some medically induced coma, and he's guiding this team to victory using a magical PS4 controller, as we win the league. Seriously, is this not just like your first season the last several years on Fifa career mode? Take over the team, we start scoring goals like mad as the team tweaks and adjusts as you mess with tactics, and win the PL in your very first year on a remarkable rise from our position in the table last year? Yep, just like that, except without adding Jetro and Kono and Yaya in the transfer window. Yep, Jose Enrique is Kenny.
