    Barcelona had to say something. Just saving face after spending the best part of the summer looking and acting like mugs.

    so they didn't set a wholly unsporting buy out value on neymar ?

    Put it this way, if neymar doesn't go for £200m do you really think dembele soo goes for £100 plus 40 in Addons ?

    They lost at their own game and their salty as hell about it

    They're definitely salty about it, that said Neymar/PSG fucked them, they didn't intend to sell him to buy other players he forced his way out leaving them no choice so they had to wade into a hyper inflated market with every other club knowing how much money they had.

    If one our star players did that to us we would be fuming, in fairness Suarez tried to do it to us but fortunately he was too thick to do it properly and made a fool of himself in the process.

    And yet, they're a bit meh. Who would prefer an almond to a walnut, a Brazil nut, or even the humble hazelnut?

    I wouldn't prefer any of them to any other TBH. Nuts is nuts is nuts in my book.

    Walnuts are a bit of a sore point with me at this time of year though. I have a walnut tree, grown from a sapling at the bottom of my garden and now flourishing after nearly 20 years, but I rarely even see any of the nuts from it as the firkin squirrels snaffle the lot.

    It is that sort of attitude which resulted in humans straying away from a sustainable diet of nuts and seeds, and now the world is nearing its end.

    I thought I'd tasted all that the nut world could give until I got a tin of macadamia nuts. Those babies are unbelievable.

    The Kirk Douglas of the nut world.

    Kirk Douglas is my favorite movie star ever.

    But in the defense of DDL nuts, they are amazing if you like to bake. The Bakewell tart is a triumph, unmatched in terms of nut based cakes.

    The worst is the Pecan Pie or as I call it, the cockroach flan. I have to leave the room when Jean is enjoying one.

    In that sense I suppose that the pecan nut is like Stewart Granger for me. I just can't watch something they're in. I've never been able to sit through Scaramouche even though it sounds like my kind of thing.

    Kirk Douglas revealed the secret to him reaching a 100 was a diet consisting of vegetables, fruit, legumes, nuts, and seeds.

    What would be the point of living to 100 if you can do it only by eating rabbit food?
