Liverpool 2 Spurs 1

Liverpool’s title hopes were kept alive in dramatic fashion as a last minute own goal from Toby Alderweireld secured a vital win over Spurs.

The Reds looked to be heading for two dropped points after Lucas Moura’s second half strike cancelled out Roberto Firmino’s opener, but Spurs ‘keeper Hugo Lloris parried Mo Salah’s last-gasp header in off his own defender’s legs to gift Jurgen Klopp’s side a 2-1 win and send them back to the top of the Premier League.

Klopp had Trent Alexander-Arnold fit to start, despite his withdrawal from the England squad during the international break, and returned to his trusted big-game trio of Jordan Henderson, James Milner and Georginio Wijnaldum in midfield, leaving Fabinho on the bench.

With Harry Winks and Eric Dier out injured, Mauricio Pochettino had no such luxury, naming a makeshift midfield, with attack-minded pair Moussa Sissoko and Christian Eriksen asked to sit at its base.

It was a first-half that could be neatly divided into thirds. The opening quarter of an hour saw Spurs settle the better, moving the ball around nicely, but when Andy Robertson bent a sensational cross into Firmino, the Brazilian nodded home to give the home side the lead and settle the Anfield nerves.

For the spell that followed, Liverpool were irresistible. Robertson and Alexander-Arnold enjoyed the freedom of the flanks, with Spurs’ wing backs pinned inside by the mere threat of Sadio Mane and Mo Salah.

It was Mane who came closest to doubling the advantage, and indeed thought he had, wheeling away in celebration, only to see his curler fly just the wrong side of the upright.

Eventually Pochettino, watching from the stands as his touchline ban continues, got the message through to change the system, dropping Lucas Moura into a midfield four to try and contain the galloping Reds fullbacks, and at last it gave Spurs a foothold.

Indeed, had they not been a little wasteful in midfield, and had a couple of uncharacteristic Alisson errors not passed without punishment, they may even have gone in at the break with an ill-deserved leveller.

As it was, Spurs used the interval for some more tactical tinkering, pushing Danny Rose higher up the flank and shifting to a back four, with Jan Vertonghen on the left, in a bid to halt Alexander-Arnold’s bombing raids.

It was Rose’s attempted cross that fell kindly for Harry Kane to force Alisson into his first real save of note, and when he could only parry into the path of Eriksen and equaliser looked inevitable until Robertson arrived right on time with a heroic block.

As the hour mark approached, the game opened up. Salah squandered a decent opening after a vintage Liverpool break, but at the other end they never quite looked like a side that had only conceded 18 goals all season.

It was no surprise then, when number 19 arrived. Kane started it with a smart piece of thinking, fizzing a quickly-taken free-kick out to Trippier, and when the England man’s cross was miscued by Eriksen, it found its way through to Lucas to slam home.

Klopp responded immediately by throwing on Divock Origi and Fabinho for Milner and Henderson in a move that was all twist and no stick.

Origi, rather surprisingly on free-kick duty, almost found a way through when his strike clipped the wall to wrong-foot Lloris, but drifted agonisingly wide of a vacated corner.

Spurs had chances of their own to win it, most notably when Sissoko and Son found themselves two-on-one with Virgil Van Dijk, but the Dutchman positioned himself superbly to force Sissoko into a weak-foot strike over the bar.

But in the end it would be a moment of remarkable good fortune that sealed all three points as the unfortunate Alderweireld watched the ball trickle over his own line.

Plastic Jesus

Ed Rush and George Cromarty

I don’t care if it rains or freezes
Long as I’ve got my plastic Jesus
Sitting on the dashboard of my car
Comes in colors pink and pleasant
Glows in the dark cause it’s iridescent
Take it with you … when you travel far.

Get yourself a sweet Madonna
Dressed in rhinestones sitting on a
Pedestal of abalone shell
Going ninety I ain’t scary
Cause I’ve got the Virgin Mary
Assuring me that I won’t go to hell.

Get yourself a sweet Madonna
Dressed in rhinestones sitting on a
Pedestal of abalone shell
Going ninety I ain’t scary

The Man in the Iron Mask

Billy Bragg

When he drops you off, I will not say
Who was that who so quickly drove away
The things you’ve done
And the places you’ve been
When I open the door for you
I will not let them in
As long as you come back to me
I will never ask
For you I will be
The man in the iron mask
You said you loved me and it broke my heart
I was always a prisoner right from the start
The nights you spend without me,
This house is like a dungeon
And you only return to torture me more
You must have your reasons
I will not ask
For you I will be
The man in the iron mask

Dreams

Fleetwood Mac

Now here you go again
You say you want your freedom
Well, who am I to keep you down?
It’s only right that you should
Play the way you feel it
But listen carefully to the sound
Of your loneliness

Like a heartbeat… drives you mad
In the stillness of remembering what you had
And what you lost…
And what you had…
And what you lost

Thunder only happens when it’s raining
Players only love you when they’re playing
Say… Women… they will come and they will go
When the rain washes you clean… you’ll know, you’ll know

Now here I go again, I see the crystal visions
I keep my visions to myself
It’s only me
Who wants to wrap around your dreams and…
Have you any dreams you’d like to sell?
Dreams of loneliness…

Like a heartbeat… drives you mad…
In the stillness of remembering what you had…
And what you lost…
And what you had…
And what you lost

Thunder only happens when it’s raining
Players only love you when they’re playing
Women they will come and they will go
When the rain washes you clean, you’ll know, you’ll know

Oh, thunder only happens when it’s raining
Players only love you when they’re playing
Say women they will come and they will go
When the rain washes you clean, you’ll know, you’ll know
You will know, you’ll know

You know how much I love my Moodies but my goodness they never wrote powerful lyrics like this.

Barclay James Harvest

After the day

The eyes of the night march slowly by
The last grain If the
kneeling man just sighs
Protected by the one great wall
Of colored parts
He probes his clouded mind
If he takes a look around him
Is there nothing left to see
Is there nothing left at all
after the day

With trembling hands he wipes his eyes
He tries to stand
But does not feel the need
The morning sun shines on
The multicolored cross
Left standing through it all

If he takes a look around him
Is there nothing left to see
Is there nothing left at all
after the day

If he takes a look around him
Is there nothing left to see
Is there nothing left at all
after the day

For No One

Please lay down your pistols and your rifles
Please lay down your colors and your creeds
Please lay down your thoughts of being no-one
Concentrate on what you ought to be
Then lay down your bullshit and your protests
Then lay down your Governments of greed
Take a look at what lies all around you
then pray God we can live in peace

Everyone’s a loner ’till he needs a helping hand’
Everyone is
a ‘one-one’ till he wants to make a stand
God alone knows how we will survive

Please lay down your pistols and your rifles Please lay down your colors and your creeds
Please lay down your thoughts of being no-one
Concentrate on what you ought to be

Everyone’s a loner ’till he needs a helping hand’
Everyone is
a ‘one-one’ till he wants to make a stand
God alone knows how we will survive

St Peters Church Binton 

There has been a church on the site since at least 1286. The current church was built in 1875 and has views south over the river Avon, Warwickshire and the Cotswolds. It was built by the Conway family (the owners of the manor of Binton) and mainly paid for by the wife of Francis Seymour, 5th Marquess of Hertford. One 19th-century rector of the church had stated that the village’s inhabitants were mainly agricultural workers and thus unable to contribute to the costs of maintaining the church, meaning he had to seek contributions from the local gentry instead.

Signs of the original church remain, however. A picture of the original church can be seen at the back of the current church. There is a 15th-century font and cover and a mediaeval parish chest with three locks and bound with iron bands. Furthermore, there is a stained-glass window in memory of Sir John Greville, who died in 1444 and was an MP in seven Parliaments. He is buried at All Saints Church, Weston-on-Avon. The window depicts the arms of the Greville family of Milcote. There is also a piece of wood depicting the royal coat of arms. It must date from 1714–1801 as it includes the white horse of Hanover. Finally, by the gate to enter the churchyard, there are steps built into the wall, so as to avoid using the gate. The purpose of these was for people arriving to church by horseback could easily dismount,there is still a ring by these steps where the horses would be tied.

The Scott Window

The Scott Window, panel 4 (detail): searchers erect a memorial cairn
The main feature of the church of St Peter is a memorial window by Kempe (1915), dedicated to Robert Falcon Scott and his co-explorers who died in their failed attempt to return from the South Pole. The window shows four scenes of the 1912 expedition. Scott had married Kathleen Bruce, sister of the Reverend Lloyd Harvey Bruce, Binton’s rector 1906–24. Scott frequently visited the Rectory (now The Grange). Alongside the window is a memorial cross for the Revd Bruce, with a bronze sculpture of Christ designed by Kathleen.

The church has one bell, cast by Henry Bagley of Chacombe in 1669.

Just to the right of the church porch is the tomb of William Jackson and his wife, who lived in “Springback”, now The Old Wellhouse. Jackson provided the stone wellhead known as “Buckwell” or “Lion’s Mouth” by piping water from a well in his own garden.

Little Lies

Fleetwood Mac

If I could turn the page
In time then I’d rearrange just a day or two
Close my, close my, close my eyes
But I couldn’t find a way
So I’ll settle for one day to believe in you
Tell me, tell me, tell me lies
Tell me lies
Tell me sweet little lies
(Tell me lies, tell me, tell me lies)
Oh, no, no you can’t disguise
(You can’t disguise, no you can’t disguise)
Tell me lies
Tell me sweet little lies
Although I’m not making plans
I hope that you understand there’s a reason why
Close your, close your, close your eyes
No more broken hearts
We’re better off apart let’s give it a try
Tell me, tell me, tell me lies
Tell me lies
Tell me sweet little lies
(Tell me lies, tell me, tell me lies)
Oh, no, no you can’t disguise

Go Your Own Way

Fleetwood Mac

Loving you
Isn’t the right thing to do
How can I ever change things that I feel?

If I could
Baby I’d give you my world
How can I
When you won’t take it from me?

You can go your own way
Go your own way
You can call it another lonely day
You can go your own way
Go your own way

Tell me why
Everything turned around
Packing up
Shacking up’s all you wanna do

If I could
Baby I’d give you my world
Open up
Everything’s waiting for you

You can go your own way
Go your own way
You can call it another lonely day
You can go your own way
Go your own way

Fleetwood Mac

If you wake up and don’t want to smile
If it takes just a little while
Open your eyes and look at the day
You’ll see things in a different way

Don’t stop thinking about tomorrow
Don’t stop, it’ll soon be here
It’ll be here better than before
Yesterday’s gone, yesterday’s gone

Why not think about times to come?
And not about the things that you’ve done?
If your life was bad to you
Just think what tomorrow will do

Don’t stop thinking about tomorrow
Don’t stop, it’ll soon be here
It’ll be here better than before
Yesterday’s gone, yesterday’s gone

All I want is to see you smile
If it takes just a little while
I know you don’t believe that it’s true
I never meant any harm to you
Don’t stop thinking about tomorrow
Don’t stop, it’ll soon be here
It’ll be here better than before
Yesterday’s gone, yesterday’s gone

Don’t stop thinking about tomorrow
Don’t stop, it’ll soon be here
It’ll be here better than before
Yesterday’s gone, yesterday’s gone

Don’t you look back
Don’t you look back
Don’t you look back
Don’t you look back
