Doesn't excuse the fact most Liverpudlians are thieves.

You and adult video star should get a room. The wit and brilliant repartee would be beyond the reach of the reach of most gaaboarders.

Hilarious and factually correct.

Don't feed the troll.

About 75% of Liverpudlians have Irish ancestry.

If Karius had the potential to accomplish half of what Schmeichal has there'd be no getting rid of him...

Another cracker.

Just where do you get the comedic inspiration? Truly delightful to get to read these bon mots.

Can't wait for the next one.

They filled them in final 5 mins ffs.  Nice to see City beaten nonetheless.  Well done Klippity.

You're a bit like an annoying piece of dogshit that sticks to the bottom of your shoe, annoying at first but still after a while it wears off and fades away to nothing but a bad smelly memory

Pros for me are positioning, handling crosses, more physical on corners, more vocal in the box and better with ball at feet.
Mignolet better shot stopper.
Both for me are mid table keepers. Will be interesting to see how VVD settles that defence.

Both. Gomez should not have dived away out, and karius? Should not get beaten at the near post on that. His position was fine, and he wasn't unsighted. Just very slow to get his hands up. Poor.
Still better than Mignolet.

A fit sturridge is worth 30 comfortably. He'd do well somewhere warm. Would love to see him get a run with Firmino dropping into the slot...

So with a bit of a nerd stats background, there are a number of significant problems with the US Census- but this one (2020) is going to be a 'mare...

there is a constitutionally mandated census every 10 years - with 7 mandated questions on every household - this is used to apportion the 435 members of the House of Representatives over the 50 states proportionally to population.

There's also an American Community Survey- again legally mandated that underpins government government programs, this one is 60 questions and is the major factor behind geographic data for federal, state and municipality resource planning.

This census is the first to have a cost mandate, initially it had to cost less than the 2010 census, but then surprisingly that budget was reduced again. Earlier this year John Thompson resigned, he was the Census Bureau director and the role has not been filled.
 
There are a number of known issues with any census, and the economic science here is around the "undercount" which means that atypical folks respond disproportionally less to the census than the middle of the road seventy odd percent (based on jurisdiction). Thats where you have to spend the money to go after getting a more accurate picture of that 20 percent of the population. Statistically sampling is a typical approach (as well as a huge advertising effort), but thats been ruled out by the supreme court in the US, surprisingly ( no not really) it is now a black and white issue according to the Republican and Democratic parties in the US.

Thompson has resigned on the basis that he believed he had to register his refusal to compromise the count in order to support partisan goals.

Doesn't seem a great plan that given the technology and reach to have the most accurate numbers in the history of the United States, that partisan idiots (aka politicians) prefer a fungible nonsense approach...
