Re: Modern Library's 100 Best Novels of all Time

Ok, here's what I've read from the first one. There is a lot I disliked here, mind you. Which have you read ? The Board List: ULYSSES by James Joyce THE GREAT GATSBY by F. Scott Fitzgerald A PORTRAIT OF THE ARTIST AS A YOUNG MAN by James Joyce LOLITA by Vladimir Nabokov BRAVE NEW WORLD by Aldous Hux...

No Dickens. No Moby Dick.

All in all, not much of a list.

If you just got into Ghibli stuff, Joey, you need to check out Mononoke and Grave Of The Fireflies particularly. Look around for Steamboy as well. Very similar.

I said the whole of 2007. That includes last season. 19 goals in 31 matches. One better than Ronaldo. I've watched every Spurs game this season, and Berbatov hasn't seemed bad to me. Just because he doesn't show happy little body language doesn't concern me. I'd probably be quite similar if I played...

Certainly not. He scored more goals in the Prem in 2007 than anyone else, Ronaldo included. He's already got his name penciled in. Berbatov has been very good this season, that's why I used an example of him playing well this season. I wasn't able to watch much of last due to no access to cable tell...

Try and grab a copy of the Carling Cup match against Man City when Zokora was sent off really early on. Berbatov ran his absolute arse off for the whole game that day. One of the most stunning lone striker performances I've seen. He simply refused to allow Tottenham's best chance of qualifying for E...

When there's more than money-grubbing agents trying to stir up the newspapers I'd be happy to give the Berbatov thing more credit. Good players in struggling teams are always subjects of this during January. Newcastle, of course, is immune. I admit Chelsea particularly need strikers desperately, tho...

Doesn't surprise me. That was a pretty good match (notably Santalab's goal), but some of the finishing last night from Berbatov and co. was simply sublime. There's a difference between having lousy defending and having no defenders fit, mind you. Possibly the major reason all those goals rained in w...

Portsmouth play dire counterattacking crap. Their recent home form shows that. When they have to force the play nothing happens. Yawnfests galore. If you can't see a 10 goal game for the enjoyment it entails, then it's bad luck for you. It feels like you argue with people simply because you have not...

Rushdie's writing is pretty turgid at the worst of times. This book is the epitome of those times.

Midnight's Children is the only book of his I could probably stand to re-read.

Basically one idea that they had for an episode. Then they stretched it. To over two hours.

Tonight I watched one of the greatest Premier League matches ever. I left a mate's Buck's Night early to make it. 1-1 at halftime, I lazily waltzed upstairs to change clothes and threw on my Tottenham shirt. Did I know such a move would prepare myself for 8 second half goals? I fucken wish. Berbatov...

Haven't organised anything for tonight. Considering we only have one central defender fit or not suspended, who happens to be Younes Krapoul, I'm not prepared for anyone I know to witness my inevitable plunge into abyssal despair.

Hopefully Ramos gets onto Chimbonda's case over continually charging into Lennon's area up forward. That and Kaboul really has to start, um, marking players in the box.

Hmm. Hammers next.

The problem has been not pushing on and securing the points after taking leads. It invites late comebacks.

A bit too early to say. I missed last night's one because I couldn't be bothered getting up at 4am and sitting in front of the computer for it. I'll probably have a better idea of his style after watching the Wigan match on Sunday. I like that Ramos started the Boro match with two attacking players ...

It seems Ramos still doesn't know what his best 11 is. Bent and Defoe get a start against Boro, while Keane and Berbatov got the nod in Tel Aviv last night. I like that he's giving everybody a chance. Apart from being the biggest dickhead I remember seeing at Tottenham, I'm glad Boateng is finally i...
